God help us go to bed
We’ve been betrayed our phones are dead
We hear the coming of Circadian
These years have given way 
to desperation singing out each day
The gaps are shrinking 
what the hell have we just done

And there shall come a day 
when blisters from the friction heal again 
my fingers taking in your skin 
I drink it in but I’m no cistern

Such a cold sun
Gravity has won
There’s no point trying to run

Laid bare in the swordplay
Dividing joint and bone
Spirit from the soul

You can't write your own eulogy 
For what you suffer willingly
Words rediscovered like a lost melody
When those who loved you come collect your body
clean you up and dress your body
weep upon your chest
Burn into a memory

In the shadow looming over me
This loomband is my rosary 
An apparition I can feel
I’ve bottled up the best of me
And poured it out at Bethany 
A taste of death is an epiphany

One last revolution
Our scars sing out the song
The stars try to hum along

Love won’t be outdone
Love won’t be outdone
Love won’t be outdone
Ever, Ever
