Indus Creed – Fireflies lyrics

Grim tales by fairy lights
We sat mesmerised, mesmerised
Dancing iridescence
In your eyes like fireflies

Partners in devilment
We grabbed each day, unafraid
But the cold hands of consequence
Broke the spell and wrecked the game

Oh, the sun went out today
For reasons you won’t say
And I just can’t look away
From those fireflies

Naked rage or self-defense
Will we ever know, who’ll let go
No remorse or penitence
Can save the raft from the undertow

Oh, the sun went out today
And the colours burned into gray
But I just can’t look away
From those hurting eyes

We hurt, we grieve
(How could we imagine this would be)
We don’t concede
We hide, we blame
(We believed that the world would stay the same)
Our illusions won’t efface the pain
It remains

The sun went out today
For reasons I can’t say
And the colours died in the pale
Oh, the sun went out today
And I just can’t look away from those fireflies

Tall tales and satellites
All that remain
Turn back the day
