lyrics

In my search for something beautiful
Another mark was found
A blight that fostered chaos
In a mind once so sound

Now seeking a less than subtle revenge
An act that first felt foreign
Before the years you stole from me
with the light once held within

Do you ever question why
Only you are on your side
Standing lone in blood-soaked soil?

And if I find a better way
To escape from yesterday
Can I watch your world uncoil?

On the verge of something pitiful
Is where you're at your best
Made up of only fractures and tears
You fit in just fine with the rest

But just because we've both earned scars
Doesn't mean that they match
I'd invite you to move on forward with me
But you've anchored yourself in the past

Do you ever question why
Only you are on your side
Standing lone in blood-soaked soil?

And if I find a better way
To escape from yesterday
Can I watch your world uncoil?

Seeing you now
I can sense your fear
But even so (I can't)
stand you standing so near

Your excuses thrown are paperthin
But what's worse is that you believe them
So I'll leave you to your delusions
I surrender this war of attrition

Do you ever question why
Only you are on your side
Standing lone in blood-soaked soil?

And since I've found a better way
To escape from this Hell you made
I'll just watch your world uncoil.
