in comes the band
they struck a chord that left your sinew smiling
it missed the mark in the end
it goes hand in hand
with that scowl you’ve been sporting
from years of constant compromise
in light of many more

in loneliness you are not alone
happiness will come, but by its nature it will go

and now I know that all that matters
in the dark is felt and heard
still I can see that you’ve been dreaming
cause I’m conscious to a fault
and it’s not what you deserve

your own voice was too loud
to utter promises or prayers
you reprimanded honesty
and honestly I can’t describe
what happens in the dark
is more than half of what you see
but you won’t ever believe it
unless you dream it in your sleep

I can’t watch you die, Rose
I won’t watch you
