  • And I cry and no one can hear
    Inhale
    The blinded eyes that see
    The chaos
    Bring the pitiful to me
    Even though I'm wide awake I will
    & blackest night & I wait for you
    It's cold in here there's no one left
    & I wait for you
    & nothing stops it happening
    & I knew I'd cherish all my misery alone
    And I wait staring at the Northern Star
    I'm afraid it won't lead me anywhere
    He's so cold he will ruin the world tonight
    All the angels kneel into the Northern Lights
    Kneel into the frozen lights
    And they paid, I cry and cry for you
    Ghosts that haunt you with their sorrow
    I cried 'cause you were doomed
    Praying to the wound that swallows
    All that's cold and cruel
    Can you see the trees, charity and gratitude,
    They run to the pines
    It's black in here blot out the sun
    & run to the pines
    Our misery runs wild and free
    & I knew, the fire and the ashes of his
    grace...
    And I wait staring at the Northern Star
    I'm afraid it won't lead you very far
    He's so cold he will win the world tonight
    All the angels kneel into the frozen lights
    Feel their hearts they're cold and white
    And I want you
    And blessed are the broken
    And I beg you
    No loneliness, no misery is worth you
    Oh tear his heart out cold as ice it's mine
    And I wait praying to the Northern Star
    I'm afraid it won't lead you anywhere
    He's so cold raining on the world tonight
    All the angels kneeling to the Northern Lights
    And I pray begging to the Northern Star
    I'm afraid it won't lead you anywhere
    He's so cold he will rule the world tonight
    All the angels kneeling to the Northern Lights
    Kneeling to the frozen lights
    Feel their hearts they're cold as ice.....
