about

The ghosts of Christmas past.

lyrics

Bleed my hope out over Christmas Time
You know this place is wall to wall with all the years we tried
I believed these words, they would be hers and not mine
Its such a weak cliche to say that all of these things change with time

There the lie was
Saying I was
Saying I was to be
We feed this 'til it burns red
To fuck with what your friends said
Saying I was to be?

I carve my name into your bedroom wall
Let this be a monument to all the ones who fell before
With their belief so strong it justified a war
But such a mistake, its far too late to take their lives back for

There the lie was
Saying I was
Saying I was to be
We feed this 'til it burns red
To fuck with all we've wasted
Saying I was to be?

So wipe for fingerprints and burn these clothes
I watch you sink beneath the water
All weighed down with stones
As I delete these numbers from my telephone
Still feel you reaching out to touch me through this great unknown

There the lie was
Saying I was
Saying I was to be
We feed this 'til it burns red
And fuck until the shames dead
Saying I was to be?
