We're finished begging
Diminished, taking ours
Balance love and sin

With the knife tied to time and our eyes closed timing
We're dead if they notice
Words painting lines
Action shaping dust and our autonomy

It's cause I told you
It's cause I promised I'm on your side tonight

I saw everything
Moments passed
Time was fleeting
Stars faded
Light was transitory
In the end it was if there was never a beginning
But we love
We cherished
We danced
We spoke beautiful words
Everything was undone and yet here we are
