Lyrics:

blinked out the dust from my eyes as I rose from the earth
Carved out of stone, defined by my heart
and my worth
The moment I woke l found cast-offs
and silhouettes formed
from cutaway lines of you
Stumble and stretch towards the shadows of flickering blue

Stirring the embers of what it was like to begin
Covered in flames, the thought of you
burning my skin
Powdered my bones, breathe it in,
sleeplessly waiting for everything
to be right again,
Seeing your face in smoke that swallows me in

What is this life we're living
and who is the one decided to give it
and why in the hell do we ever fall in love
Oh God I've come undone

We built us a house and made it just for
the two of us
It towered the sky, we burned it to rubble
and dust
Fire and stone never know
How to be anything more and
In the end we all
Break and we burn
Turn into ashes and rust

What is this life we're living
and who is the one decided to give it
and why in the hell do we ever fall in love
Oh God I've come undone
