Seabound (5)

For Another Day

I, revenant, I am
Observant, I am
With a friend

We are hunters
We are prey
We are hungry
Night and day

Close your eyes
If you fall for it
And I'll hold up the charade
That will keep us alive
For another day

Blink twice
To call for it
I'll keep up the pretense
That will keep you alive
For another day

I'm a lucky man
I'm a sad man
I do what I can

I'm a happy man
I'm a dead man
I am what I am

I, revenant, I am
Dependent, I am
Not your friend

We are punters
We hold sway
We are hungry
Night and day

Hey, move over
Turn over
Hey, move over
Game over

For Life

Look at the sky
Take one last look at the sky

Trace of resentment
Out of the blue
Uncatchable
Unstoppable

And then...

A mood forecast
Desperate but true
And vain
You're on your knees again

Take a look at the sky
In time
One last look at the sky
It used to be you and I

Take a look at the sky
In time
One last look at the sky
You and I, bound for life

Bound for life

Outnumbered
Outgunned
Take position
Have fun

Outnumbered
Outgunned
Take position
It's going to be fun

Poisonous Friend

You frighten me
You spy on me
You're scaring me
You care for me

I have a poisonous friend
She's living in the house
She likes to move on bare skin
She knows my body inside out

I don't recall when this affair began
She was simply there
Now I am shaken by the fear she could assault me
But I must not show it, not to her

Sometimes I watch her kill
Cold eyes and no restraint
And I wonder how it feels
To annihilate a friend

You frighten me
It's getting harder to conceal
You spy on me
All my secrets are revealed

You're scaring me
A play on words for us to see
You care for me
I find this harder to believe

Scorch The Ground

Talk to me
I need you to remedy
My misery
Comfort me
It's time that you made up
For what you've done to me

I am the crack of your voice
(Static in the sound)
I am the bias in your choice
(Your lack of common ground)
I am the shadow in the noise
(Love never found)
I scorch the ground
I scorch the ground you walk on

Fight for me
How could you expect
I grant normality
Die for me
'Cause if we fail
I'd rather see you cold
Than live without me

I am the crack of your voice
The static in the sound
I am the bias in your choice
I scorch the ground

I am the crack of your voice
(Static in the sound)
I am the bias in your choice
(Your lack of common ground)
I am the shadow in the noise
(Love never found)
I scorch the ground
I scorch the ground you walk on

Torch

Say goodbye to gravity
Say goodbye to sanity

A ray of hope
Down to the wire
(Gone, gone)
Hand me a match
This is a story about fire

One by one
We sacrificed our pawns
For our queen
To play her way
Rooks and knights
Built a solid wall
For her protection

One by one
We couldn't go on
To keep the balance between
Madness and affection
Our queen enchanted everyone
Fatal play
One night
Our queen just walked away

Every time we managed to calm down again
You returned with more poison
Every time we managed to navigate a while
You filled our souls with more outrage

(Torch)
When the sirens broke down
We were still here
(Torch)
Igniting more fires
To burn down every
Responsibility

(Torch)
When the towers collapsed
You whispered my name
Princess of fire
Desire
I do remember you

Darkness comes
At nightfall
This place is quiet and abandoned
Smoke and ember
Attest to what we had
Now checkered wasteland

One by one
We sacrificed our pawns
To please our queen
Fulfill her desire
Our walls have fallen
Treasures stolen
Our queen is long long gone
And I dream of fire
