lyrics

We're only the rust in our roots, I will not see this through.
The city will burn in flames, as long as I carry my veins.
I cannot find a current that'll carry you home.
Leave me in a crowded room, so I don't feel ashamed that i'm truly alone.

Where has everything gone?
I've lost my train,
decay is only Hell to pay, and i'm back to the day of regret.
I cannot fathom, how this is worth, all the mess.

We're only the chance in our luck,
but i've burnt out.
This wasn't anything that we could stop,
I let go of my flame before I had a chance.

We're only the rust in our roots, I will not see this through.
I never gave myself a chance, maybe that's why i'm meant to die.

Where has everything gone?
I've lost my train,
decay is only Hell to pay, and i'm back to the day of regret.
I cannot fathom, how this is worth, all the mess.

We're only the chance in our luck,
but i've burnt out.
This wasn't anything that we could stop,
I let go of my flame before I had a chance.

I've learned to love, is to lie.
and that we're merely bones in terms, that we're meant;
that we're meant to die.

Even when i'm ashes, just know that I still will burn.
It'll all be okay, even if there is Hell to pay.
It's okay, i'm afraid, that there is still Hell to pay.

I cannot fathom for wanderlust is at an all time high,
maybe, maybe i'll find my reason to try.
