lyrics

Bedtime Rhyme

Though it's known that we're
Born alone under
Indifferent stars,
The world's wide enough
To hide my scars.

I have walked through the
Quiet shocks of self-
Inflicted sorrow
Just like you.
Run with me tomorrow.

Count the minutes until it's done,
Then spend them with me one-by-one.

Rook took Queen when she
Came between untold
Ambition and grace.
Clean and new wins the
Inhuman race.

Though it's known that there's
None like home for the
Inconsonant throng,
I'll lie by you
Where I belong.

Count the minutes until it's done,
Then spend them with me one-by-one,

Safe beneath the simple sky,
Safe enough to close your eyes.
Hope for all the unloved ones.
Hope, despite the burned out suns
That still light our nighttime.

Tell me how this world was begun
In words not heard by anyone.
Count the minutes until it's done,
Then spend them with me one-by-one,
Every last one, until we’re both gone.
