- As You Face West -


words have yet to crush
the barricade
content to lie upon
a razorblade
lights go down
enter shades of grey
observe the setting sun
as we all fade away
tide is looming
all-consuming
tide is looming
all-consuming

past
present
and future tense
i turn black
as you face west
clouded in the shadows
with smoke
and fog
and memory
sleeping inside broken glass
drinking from a broken cup
dancing in a broken field
with broken shoes
and broken melodies
the song keeps playing
out of tune
out of time
and out of sync
out where darkness
festers loudly
you go proudly
into oblivion
the red light
the good fight
a good night
to turn your head
turn
turn
turn
turn

there exists a force
of consequence
built to tear away
your best defense
lights go down
enter shades of grey
observe the setting sun
as we all fade away
tide is looming
all-consuming
tide is looming
all-consuming

nothing lasts forever
nothing lasts forever
when you're thick as thieves
dried-up leaves
watching paint dry
watching yesterday
the distant bell
is calling
new scars formed
in falling rain
frozen wounds
and frozen truths
wash it down
and take some more
candy-coloured sleeping pills
candy-flavoured plastic thrills
plastic smiles
and perfurmed clothes
a closet full of fabrications
the dust collecting
on the shattered playground
merry-go-round
and round
and round
and round
and round

lights go down
those who sleep
meet devastation
open eyes
shall find salvation

lights go down
those who sleep
meet devastation
open eyes
shall find salvation

lights go down
those who sleep
meet devastation
open eyes
shall find salvation

lights going down
those who sleep
meet devastation
open eyes
shall find salvation
