lyrics

The streets are all empty with leaves in their graves
We steal all the dreams form their heads while they're sleeping
A sound in the night from a distance, my body is tired
They're killing the truth with their rhetoric smiles

I'm lost
Who knew this would be so hard on us
Your golden skin saved me from certain loss
I've seen the end and it's far from us
The quiet ones get to survive

Reversing the strings, then playing eyes closed
They judge with the shrewdness of wintertime Sparrows
Speaking in tongues no respect for the ancient ones
So self consume
They're killing the truth with their rhetoric smiles

I'm lost
Who knew this would be so hard on us
Your golden skin saved me from certain loss
I've seen the end and it's far from us
The quiet ones get to survive
The quiet ones get to survive
The quiet ones get to survive
