I made my bones from steel and clay, in order to keep the wolves at bay
I’ve got nothing to show, but love for myself

I’ll be damned if I do and I’ll be damned if I don’t
But that won’t stop me from building a moat

The blood in my hands is not my own

I scaled the wall that shut you out
I built an ark and watched you drown
As the world came crashing down
All the stars in the sky will break apart like you and I
There will be no long goodbye

I’ll watch the rain clear them away
I’ll watch them sink into the sea
I’ll try to save their memories, even if I’m the “enemy”

The blood in my hands is not my own
It’s the blood of everyone I’ve known

For years you waited to hear me call, but I never made a sound

One by one they’ll slip away and I’ll be all alone and tired

One day I will turn and realise the dust that settled on the ground, settled on me
