lyrics

In a room she leaves,
Green confetti while her limbs dance by strings
Mindlessly wasting years,
Of life she tends to others' decay

How long does it take to fall?
How long does it take to fall?

She moves along,
They move along,
We all move along until we sleep.

Severed exchanges tied
By rings with no single thought for two.
Elephants invade
Silent scenes and light a match made for bombs

How long does it take to blow?
How long does it take to blow?

She moves along,
They move along,
We all move along until we crack.

One burning floor about you is all it takes to ride
Watching all the walls blend with the smoke and fade
Oh to love an ashy reflection
Oh to love the formless sut and reminents of
