The Sinking Night
by AFI

  • Blackness drips down from both of my hands
    The gold in my palm was mistaken for sand
    Can you feel it?

    The blackness it drips down from both of my eyes
    The sand that you made has taken my sight
    I can feel it

    Over the wind
    Under the rain
    Out of the chaos
    I can hear your name
    Through the sinking night
    On this sinking night
    I see your face
    (On this sinking night)
    On this sinking night Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
