Through the lies of a fortune teller In the tomb of a slave through rusted time Through the blades of a stealth propeller In the face of a stunted crime Through the sin, through the cold repentance Not a word, not a letter he wrote Came around to the drone of silence Still alive yet he never missed a note I was grown in an orchid's shadow I was primed in a field of make-believe Semi-stoned in a sea of 'I know' With a serpent's trail on my sleeve Sputtered down to an aimless motive Reaching out through the blindness of her stare Could it be that she never saw me? Or was it that I just wasn't there? Hey Can you say your goodbyes? When you pray With those stones in your eyes? Will you stay On the way To your new home? Are you free? Are they holding you down? I can't see Through the thorns in your crown I'm enslaved I'm unheard I'm unknown A silhouette in a dim syncytium Shutting out all the time-infected rays On his knees as he hit the ceiling Camouflaged in his numbered days Unaware of his plain existence Hanging down from the end of the rope he'd climbed Buried deep in a voice unshaken Echoing till the end of time And hey Can you say your goodbyes? When you pray With those stones in your eyes? Will you stay On the way To your new home? Are you free? Are they holding you down? I can't see Through the thorns in your crown I'm enslaved Unlettered I'm unknown Hey Can you say your goodbyes? As you pray With those stones in your eyes? Will you stay On the way To your new home? Are you free? Are they holding you down? I can't see Through the thorns in your crown I'm enslaved I'm unheard I'm unknown Still alive yet he never missed a... Still alive yet he never missed a... Still alive yet he never missed a... Still alive yet he never missed a note

Ptolemy 04:10
Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me Would that you ever let sin befall you Baring your heavenless soul to me Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me The day the sun doth take a bow By the beads of sweat set on your brow I'd hoist the sail I'd set you free Just to hear you say 'I need you now' Free yourself You hold the key Don't leave this story untold to me Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me Would that you ever let sin befall you Baring your heavenless soul to me Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me Don't I see all that you see? Don't the both of us kneel as we pray? Nothing lies twain you and me Still it's though you're two lifetimes away Strange how you won't let me go Yet how I try I just can't make you stay Feed me your Uncertainty Don't leave your demons unsworn to me Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me Would that you ever let sin befall you Baring your heavenless soul to me Ptolemy Ptolemy Would that you ever come home to me

Fuck you you win I can’t resist go on and take a bow It’s all that cocaine in your cunt I just can’t disavow You make it hard there’s just no second emotion So fucking hard I’m kneeling down on the floor – I can’t Not take you home, not tie you down, not leave you unfulfilled You smile and tell me that you won’t just like I know you will You make it hard enough for me not to leave you – unbound So fucking hard it’s strange how easy it comes – I'm Free I pray in silence for all the things I never wanted to be I’m standing trial for all those crimes You framed me with You'll see I’m pushing deeper to feel you Dark and warm like love’s s’posed to be It's never easy It's hot to touch It's not enough Aa aa aa Don't look at me girl now you're making me bleed This mound of curls is just the drug that we need Don't make it harder don't make me lose control, I can Still taste the violence in those secrets you stole Leave me possessive, obsessive It's getting warmer It's colder It's hotter I just can't tell and I confess it I can't be Just take me throw me down and rip me apart Kiss me or kill me it's just so fucking hard - I'm Free I pray in silence for all the things I never wanted to be I’m standing trial for all those crimes You framed me with You'll see I’m pushing deeper to feel you Dark and warm like love’s s’posed to be It's never easy It's hot to touch It's not enough Aa aa aa I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little uncomfortable I like it when you're just a little - I'm Free I pray in silence for all the things I never wanted to be I’m standing trial for all those crimes You framed me with You'll see I’m pushing deeper to feel you Dark and warm like love’s s’posed to be It's never easy It's hot to touch It's not enough Aa aa aa

I never thought I was wrong I always knew what to say I'm falling back to the surface Within myself I think I can stay I heard you singing my song I felt you feeling the same It's what I'm catching my breath for Through life or through death Or going down in flames And I Can finally stumble and fall And I Can get away from it all Away from it all You've been away for so long You should know No one ever took your place And still This bottle's waiting unopened The table's still set This time I know what to say Sometimes the days get so long Sometimes these nights go astray But I always know where to find you As I lay there beside you I know that I'll be okay And I Can finally stumble and fall And I Can get away from it all Away from it all (What you do to me What you do to me What you do to me now What you do to me now) And I Can finally stumble and fall And I Can get away from it all Away from it all

In the throes of your stillness I hide Lost in words I can never un-write I could be the sun In the storm That never shines To the frays of my solace I cling Bound in strands of your reverence I sing Rattling the notes Through the holes In your spine I've been holding the silence inside for too long Got no more questions to answer, no need to belong You never believe you'll die alone 'Til you block out the sun In the storm Yeah To the wake of my senses I rise Catch the strains of a thousand goodbyes Hanging from a thread Through a crack In the sky Through the years, I could never forget How the chains of our illnesses met Burying the bones Sinking like the stones In your eyes I've been stealing a smile, all the while, in disguise Holding out for the kill, frozen still, as you cry You never believe you'll die alone The road is too long to still come home You blocked out the sun In the storm Yeah You never believe you'll die alone The road is too long to still come home You blocked out the sun In the storm Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
