lyrics

Burning at the stake
From fires we both made
I offered my hand
Now I must walk away
I walk away

Splinters fuel the pain
of desperate love in vain
Poisoned selfish thoughts
that I cannot watch
I will not watch

The hummingbirds in the garden fade into daylight
The succulents curl and shift with my blood under burned skin

Tired of holding breath
And tired of losing rest
All my loyal years
My blood's as thin as tears
My blood's as blue as tears

Neglected to water flowers
that needed me the most
Distracted by dying weeds
scorched from buried ghosts
Burned by childhood ghosts

The hummingbirds in the garden fade into daylight
The succulents curl and shift with my blood under burned skin
Our past skeletons cling to us like sand on our bodies
Walk for miles with the grains that sting but it's time to wash the skin

If your feet
are left unclean
The sand comes to bed
It follows you to bed
It follows you to bed
