  • My soul is weak
    my eyes are blind
    the fire that drove me on
    is nothing more than dust and ash
    the day my friend was gone…

    Now we got his name on a rock again
    this time it's the last

    party is over fire

    so put your hand in my hand
    and maybe we'll forget
    that life had even started
    before the day we met

    my rotten bones full of holes
    skin just holds 'em in
    might look like I'm damaged
    but the damage is deep within…

    so put your hand in my hand
    and maybe we'll forget
    that life had even started
    before the day we met Writer/s: ROBERT DICKINSON
