The Greater Sun

lyrics

You walked in
with a smile on your face
That made my heart explode
Fractions of cardiac dust
Filled my chest
And caused my lungs to corrode
I didn't know how long I had
Until you were forced to go
But for now
This castle's burning
And I won't dare put out its glow

Cause when you kill the flame
The smoke signals the enemy

Come down
You're way too high now
Come down
You're way too high now

Shake, shake
We were thrown
Way off our course
Wake, Awake
We're all sleeping through the universe

You and I
Were just alike
Like matching canvases
Of white
Never complete
Never dry
Always bare
And always bright

But when the colors start to mix
The painters hand can't get a grip

Come down
You're way too high now
Come down
You're way too high now

When she speaks
Her words are wise
She wears dignity
With pride
As she laughs
Without fear of the future
Ambition peaks
Wisdom is weak
specks of suspicion
Spewed all over canvases
Hanging up proudly
With meek mindless meaning
Drowning eyes bleeding
Awaiting to see the
Corridor calling
Viciously crawling
Fluid drenched floors
Drag me through my last thought

I can't reach the end
I can't reach the end to descend

As I sit and watch the world
Spin on it's tilt
I realize
I am not the only one
Standing crooked here with guilt

The planet's decrepit
our young minds
are deceptive
And we keep remarking
On it's faults

You're out of your mind
You're out of your mind little one

If it's true
That dust is what makes us
Then what of us
Could we give
To make each other breath
The way we did
With confidence

We could wait a century
Until we are forced to go
But for now
This castle's burning
And I won't dare put out its glow

We'll keep it burning
