  • Gather the bones and lay them in the sun in patterns that capture the eye
    No one could know, display for everyone the holes in our souls we despise
    Timber and stone, monumental, remnants frozen in time
    Carried alone the burden, knowing it was all we could do to survive

    Only embers remain
    Refusing to fade
    There's still light to find our way
    Only embers remain
    Black turning to gray
    There's still light to find our way
    Only embers remain

    Scatter the dust, what we once held in hand seems was never at all
    Gone in a gust, not ours to understand, ah, agony perpetual
    Holding my breath and close my eyes, for a second I can see you again
    Motionless, like that day we lost who we both should have been

    Only embers remain
    Refusing to fade
    There's still light to find our way
    Only embers remain
    Black turning to gray
    There's still light to find our way
    Only embers

    I've been staring at her
    Lying still for so long (she's so still, she's so still)
    Waiting for this endless
    Night to color into dawn (it's neverending, it's neverending)
    But it's never lifting, it's always shifting
    No one can breathe
    It holds me under, and this drags down you
    (It drags you down, it drags you down)
    This breaks what was made one into two Writer/s: CHINO MORENO, CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
