  • I burned out my eyes
    I cut off my tongue
    I sealed them with all of the silver
    And now I have none

    You killed the life
    You took the diamond
    You killed the vine
    Death of the

    You own the darkness
    And taken my sight
    You buried the stars underground
    You've stolen the night

    You can run to the sea
    You can run to the forest
    You can hide, but you'll never escape

    You've run out of lies
    You've run out of time

    You killed the life
    You took the diamond
    You killed the vine
