Lyrics Edit

Roll away your stone, I'll roll away mine

Together we can see what we will find

Don't leave me alone at this time

For I'm afraid of what I will discover inside

'Cause you told me that I would find a hole

Within the fragile substance of my soul

And I have filled this void with things unreal

And all the while my character it steals

Darkness is a harsh term don't you think

And yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burnt

But you say that's exactly how this grace thing works

It's not the long walk home that will change this heart

But the welcome I receive with the restart

Darkness is a harsh term don't you think

And yet it dominates the things I see

Stars hide your fires

These here are my desires

And I will give them up to you this time around

And so I'll be found

With my stake stuck in this ground

Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

But you, you've gone too far this time

You have neither reason nor rhyme

With which to take this soul that is so

Rightfully mine
