Bed of Mercury

lyrics

One beating heart lays on the bed
of molten cold mercury, fifteen degrees.
It swells at the rate of your stride
and this is the reason the blood runs so high.

Too many faults; not enough reason to pull of the mask.
All that he wants; just to be loved by your side in the end.

Take all you need, you know that he wants you.
How much is enough before you let go?
Surrounded, invisible darkness awaits as he leaves.
Salts of soda, they've inflated his dream,

dream,

dream of an all encompassed life he'd never known.
Dream of a fiery passion like the one that's gone.
That for him would always be just a dream, just a dream.

Too many faults; not enough reason to pull of the mask.
All that he wants; just to be loved by your side in the end.

Slowly been shown out the door, and fought all the way,
he had been there, but he couldn't stay.
Hoping, though he wouldn't pray, there was no room to pray.

Too many faults; not enough reason to pull of the mask.
All that he wants; just to be loved by your side in the end.
