Drinking Amongst The Ghosts

It's about trying to move on from being heartbroken, but realising that by trying to move too quickly, you risk self destruction and pushing those you love further away

Another heart to give away and embrace in pain

Wild thorns pierce my skin, but I know I'm alive

I tried so hard to drink away my phantoms

Lose my ghosts in the smoke and pretend

That there'll be an answer in the end

 

Take it all and break the last of my brittle will

Watch from beyond, I broke my body in the fall

Drain my blood, lifeless vampire

Drink til my heart is still

 

Keep those wild dreams to yourself

Abandon hope all ye who enter heere

Inside I'm falling away

I strived so hard to chase away the days

Lose my mind and all colours fade out to grey

There will be no answer for me in the end

 

Take it all and break the last of my brittle will

Watch from beyond, I broke my body in the fall

Drain my blood, lifeless vampire

Drink til my heart is still

 

There will be no peace when I find my grave

No prayers to guide me to the void

Because I can only see my legacy all ablaze

 

Take it all and break the last of my brittle will

Watch from beyond, I broke my body in the fall

Drain my blood, lifeless vampire

Drink til my heart is still

The End
