I Am Ghost /

Lady Madeline in Her Coffin

There was a time when stillness meant nothing to me
Once, silence meant lack of sound;
Fall came once a year
I danced, redcheeked,
each year's first snow,
tongue out to taste each flake's welcome sting
I laughed, distinct from nature's cycles,
A scrap of wonder, floating in a torrent
of sorrow I couldn't grasp
That laugh, mouth open, sums up my past
I craved fulfillment, too shallow to know
I could never be fully filled again

Here we are and it's open
I lay her down in the glow (half of creation's destruction).
Replaced the moon and the stars with candles
Black and Grey
is to drown, yesterday yesterday

Fades (through broken glass)
Hate (what I've become)
Enclosed, please find Silence
Fade (through broken glass)
Hate (what I've become)
Enclosed please find Silence,
Everything's shallow,
we're chasing ourselves
beneath a stone,
I am covered in make-up
that won't wash away
beneath a stone
We are joy (I was just a boy)
Goodnight

Beauty scar, powdered make-up,
melting eyes, smile of bone
I replaced the moon and the stars with candles
We are all the same, everything everything

Fades (through broken glass)
Hate (what I've become)
Enclosed, please find Silence
Fade (through broken glass)
Hate (what I've become)
Enclosed please find Silence,
Everything¹s shallow,
we're chasing ourselves beneath a stone,
I am covered in make-up
that won't wash away beneath a stone
We are joy, so take my hand
We are joy, so take my hand

Sing inside the shadows
she surrounds the love I hid
The beating of a god
that won't let go. I know,
Black and Grey is to drown in yesterday
We are joy, so take my hand
We are joy, so take my hand
