This time imperfect [hidden track] ( spoken, barely audible as piano plays )

We held hands on the last night on earth.
Our mouths filled with dust,
We kissed in the fields under the trees,
screaming like dogs, bleeding dark into the leaves.
It was empty on the edge of town
but we knew everyone floated along the bottom of the river.
So we walked through the waste
where the road curved into the sea
and the shattered seasons lay,
and the bitter smell of burning was on you like a disease.
In our cancer of passion you said death is a midnight runner.

The sky had come crashing down
like the news of an intimate suicide.
We picked up the shards
and formed them into shapes of stars
that wore like an antique wedding dress.
The echoes of the past broke the hearts of the unborn
as the ferris wheel slowed to a stop.
The few insects skittered away in hopes of a better pastime.
I kissed you at the apex of the maelstrom
and asked if you would accompany me in a quick fall,
but you made me realise that my ticket wasn't good for two.
I rode alone.

You said the cinders are falling like snow.
There is poetry in despair,
and we sang with unrivaled beauty,
bitter elegies of savagery and eloquence.
Of blue and grey.
Strange, we ran down desperate streets
and carved our names in the flesh of the city.
The sun has stagnated somewhere beyond the rim of the horizon
and the darkness is a mystery of curves and lines.
Still, we lay under the emptiness
and drifted slowly outward,
and somewhere in the wilderness
we found salvation scratched into the earth like a message.


(the song)

I cannot leave here, I cannot stay.
Forever haunted, more than afraid.
Asphyxiate on words I would say.
I'm drawn to a blackened sky as I turn blue.

There are no flowers, no, not this time.
There will be no angels gracing the lines,
just these stark words I find.

I'd show a smile, but I'm too weak.
I'd share with you, could I only speak,
just how much this hurts me.

I cannot stay here. I cannot leave.
Just like all I loved, I'm make-believe.
Imagined heart, I disappear.
Seems no one will appear here and make me real.

There are no flowers, no, not this time.
There will be no angels gracing the lines,
just these stark words I find.

I'd show a smile, but I'm too weak.
I'd share with you, could I only speak,
just how much this hurts me.

I'd tell you how it haunts me,
I'd tell you how it haunts me,
(Cuts through my day and sinks in to my dreams.)
I'd tell you how it haunts me,
(Cuts through my day and sinks in to my dreams.)
You don't care that it haunts me,

There are no flowers, no, not this time.
There will be no angels gracing the lines,
just these stark words I find.

I'd show a smile, but I'm too weak.
I'd share with you, could I only speak,
just how much this hurts me...
just how much this hurts me...
just how much you...
