I watched you look through the few
Just like you told me you'd do
And now you live for the star that you reflected to use
I never noticed the time, but now it's start to unwind
The few who know me for nothing
Well why did you lie?
As you blacken my name
As you poison my vein
Heaven's never gonna cry
As you blacken my name
As you poison my vein
I watched you look for the days that I don't want you to see
I don't want you to see
I've only failed in the ways that I don't want to believe
And now the day has begun
And it will burn like the sun
Cuz I can see underneath your sacred hands are for none
I... I...
As you blacken my name
As you poison my vein
Heaven's never gonna cry
As you blacken my name
As you poison my vein
It feels like ... nowhere
It feels like ... nothing
I never wanted to go
But now it's harder to close
Are we hearing our bodies or are we hearing our souls?
I watched you dead in a box
But since I'd rather you rot
There's nothing left to discuss
So why we lie on the turf
As you blacken my name
As you poison my vein
Heaven's never gonna cry
As you blacken my name
As you poison my vein
