Laying ourselves open wide,
Like a carcass on a leash,
To your hungry, preying eyes.
Most of this has past it's prime,
Convoluted with disdain,
Saturated, lost in time.

Why don't you go out of your way?
No complications can remain.
Nothing here ever feels the same.
Backtracking down a well trod lane.

Raise your hands and set the stakes.
Risk it all to play the game.

Lay ourselves open to you,
Ours is yours to take,
It's yours to take.
Hold back the tide and breathe the taint,
It's yours to take,
It's yours to take.

Constantly hounded without a release,
To be nothing more than we wanted to be.
Left in the dark with the sweat rolling onto my cheeks.

Accusations pass us by,
While they twist the knife and grin,
Another friendship left to die.

Why don't you go out of your way?
Your inspiration fails to save.
A fragile grip on what remains,
Ground down and spread onto the flames.

Raise your hands and set the stakes.
Risk it all to play the game.

Lay ourselves open to you,
Ours is yours to take,
It's yours to take.
Hold back the tide and breathe the taint,
It's yours to take,
It's yours to take.

Constantly hounded without a release,
To be nothing more than we wanted to be.
Left in the dark with the sweat rolling onto my cheeks.
A sea of dead faces where all passion's lost.
No thought for another, whatever the cost.
The blood from my eyes casts a shadow that gives no release.

The day will come when you will see what we've become.
The day will come and you will mourn your loss.
Your words will fall upon the sand,
What we've become...
