I've been fasting face to the dawn
From the desert of thoughts
Only prayers will carry on

I've been waiting knees in the sand
Will there be time enough for me to understand?

I've been breathing
The air of high pass
The cold reaches into my bones
Turning me to glass

I've been bleeding
But the cup's not filled
I hope to see into it now
See my heart stilled

Far and away from here
I'd lie down to find some rest
Something whispers in my ear
The hurt has found a place to nest

Shining black
I see you now
Shining black
You're made of steel
Shining black

Shining black
I see you now
Shining black
You're made of steel
Shining black

I've been fighting
The worm of despair
The hollowed me is losing strength
Maybe I don't care
The demon whispers in my ear
The hurt has found a home here

Shining black
I see you now
Shining black
You're made of steel
Shining black

Shining black
I see you now
Shining black
You're made of steel
Yeah Yeah

Shining black
I see you now
Shining black
Yeah Yeah Yeah

Shining black
I see you now
Shining black
Yeah You're made of steel
Shining black

Shining black
You're made of steel
