Bombs to My Chest


see the light outside my head
the darkness of wet city streets.
we all made sacrifices...
i saw you.
sacrifices!

strapping bombs to my soul's chest
getting all misty over
time that you can't talk about.
what is easy, at least for now
what is easy, at least for now.

fading
fading untill we sleep...

see the darkness swimming in my head
the midnight of dark woods.
we all made sacrifices...
i saw you.
i saw you.
you know what i saw.

that time you can't talk about
thick as a lump in your throat.

and until then
until that time we are waiting for
i will keep my silence.
