So it rises like the sea.
Fed by ages of defeat.
With small steps it stalks the crime scene
Stops and whispers: you're a thief.
And after months of lingering
Lurking underneath
It creeps up around my head as I speak: how could I be deceived?

It's not like I couldn't see it coming
That too fast was just too fast
But I never thought I could break my own heart
As if it was touched
By a shotgun blast

As I remove all of the artefacts
And drift along the room
The loveless current softly whispers: boy, did you let go to soon?

It's a stage, oh, it's a fase, it's a reason to be afraid.
It's a promise I just might...
You know, to counter the loveless lonely nights.

We're a photo, or a silkscreen print
It looks pretty but it ain't permanent

Because all beauty fades
And all beauty fakes
And the future will eventually become the past
But without all this regression, we couldn't make our wishes last
Our longings to love anything or anyone but ourselves
But let's be honest
Tt's repetition
And to love, will always turn to hell

We're the unavoidable conflict
Deaf mutes with no sense of speech
So there, I lifted my skin and I'm naked now
But what are you hiding underneath?
