Just a song i scribbled out at 2 or 3 the other morning.
Sing me to the dirt
return me from whence we came
i'll return for you
once every tree and house is burnt

stone by stone you raise
my prison walls, i accept it
long ago i was broken
now i can't fight, just hate

where would i be, without my misery?
now i'm darker than you
my eyes reflect the fire of

the pieces of
my heart, my soul and compassion
my mind, my love and my fashion
as they are broken apart
and i watch
as the pieces burn
as the pieces burn
i'll play in the ashes
after the pieces burn

i took the pain just long enough
to feel my lungs freeze up
don't ever let me forget
the best and worst lesson of my life

brick by brick you tear
the walls of my castle down
i'll remain to the end, and face it
i have nothing left, so kill me

where will you go, without me?
i don't want to know
just let me watch as

the pieces of
my heart, my soul and compassion
my mind, my love and my fashion
as they are broken apart
and i watch
as the pieces burn
as the pieces burn
i'll play in the ashes
after the pieces burn
ashes
ashes
ashes

justify it
calcify it
praise it
cherish it
love it
as i kill it
now you know why i am
because i saw

the pieces of
my heart, my soul and compassion
my mind, my love and my fashion
as they are broken apart
and i watch
as the pieces burn
as the pieces burn
i'll play in the ashes
after the pieces burn
