"One Last Breath"

ONE LAST BREATH Lyrics by Only Crime
Our stolen dreams betray an iron will.
A shrouded face will never compromise or understand.
Lit up live in fifteen thousand volts, just like poison.
Waiting three steps out of sight.
Resolved to stain the night with one last breath.
There's a world where the bells surround you and it sounds like today,
but your prayers come a little too late to save these words.
Like a heart shattered from the outside,
I see you fading away as we drift toward a canonized wake.

Nothing reconciles our vacant choices now.
That shadowed life nobody populates, now pushed away.
And if I could read those choices back, you know I'd force it all.
And what does silence mean to me, as I choke on my last breath?
There's a world where the bells surround you and it sounds like today,
but your prayers come a little too late to save these words.
Like a heart shattered from the outside,
I see you fading away as we drift toward a canonized wake.

All the tears that we crucified stepped through to the other side.
I never really understood the s***e beyond our patient tide.
One kiss before you go.
So much that we'll never know.
If anything's familiar, let it die tonight and stay below.
