lyrics

Up and over the railing
Keeping the tracks from escaping
Running faster than the water ran cold
Bleeding you deeper than the hole that I dug
The steam trains that now block your path
Are the same ones we rode when we were infants
The faint drizzle that fell on that day
Has lead you to the tar pit you now call your grave

The moment is changing, your colour is fading
Your sweet aroma – now wretched decay
Peaceful in your final pose
A final smile captured your revenge

Fading, failing piece by piece
Nothing of you but your photo remains
Sniff the air and fragrance is plasma
The kiss of death; the most romantic of them all

Fall to your knees
And cry for freedom
Your eloquent ways cannot save
The passing of your final days

Wealthy is the ferryman that sails the River Styx (Row them all astray)
After all where else your soul supposed to fade away? (All will fade away)
Ignorance is a welcome gift to those who want a piece (Come and take your fill)
Remembering the lessons learnt after all the guilt has torn them lifeless

Lifeless

Up and over the railing
Frantic, Kicking and screaming
Dying faster than you can behold
Glimmer of hope then the moment is gone
The steam trains that now block your path
Are the same ones we rode when we were infants
The faint drizzle that fell on that day
Has lead you to the tar pit you now call your grave
