Album: The Blackened Air (2002)

  • You're leagues across a room
    The lighting's so dim I hardly see
    You're talking and waiting for me
    You're getting much smaller as you speak

    You're pulling out your hair for nothing
    What you say to me rings clear
    I'm growing so big, so dumb and blind
    I'm forty stories high

    Don't run away from me
    I tell you, my eyes are black as iron
    I'm stepping on houses, trees, and towns
    My crying makes everybody drown

    I died right in the ocean
    I died just like a whale
    I died right in the ocean Writer/s: NINA NASTASIA
