Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Here, at the end of the song*...

the will to survive is a tricky one
the will to deny's just as strong
she ran to the edge of her borderland
she ran to the end of the song
where something, some something went wrong

the weight of the sky is deniable
the weight of the fall is supreme
she fell like a prisoner in paradise
she cried to the end of the song
where something, some something went wrong

why aren't you on fire?
why aren't you a god?
why aren't you practicing happiness?
did something, some something go wrong?
here, at the end of the song
here, at the end of the song
something, some something, some something
here, at the end of the song

the smell of her hair was a chemical
the look in her eyes was a drug
she managed to make it, but still couldn't take it
she hid from the end of the song
where something, some something went wrong

the way that she walked was sheer artistry
the way that she laughed was a bomb
she had the key to eternity
she thought that she had it all wrong
where something, some something went wrong

why aren't you on fire?
why aren't you a god?
why aren't you practicing happiness?
did something, some something go wrong?
here, at the end of the song
here, at the end of the song
something, some something, some something
here, at the end of the song

the will to survive is a tricky one
the will to deny's just as strong
she ran to the edge of her borderland
she ran to the end of the song
where something, some something went wrong

the weight of the sky is deniable
the weight of the fall is supreme
she fell like a prisoner in paradise
she cried to the end of the song
where something, some something went wrong
