The Price of a Life

Faded and distorted light
Shines through the cracks you held
Together with a quivering hand
I should have set free long ago

As I read the words you spilled
On the canvas of a broken heart
Your words have the sharpest edge
Their piercing through the mind

And I can forgive
But I can't forget

And then it falls apart
It's like you never even tried
Now the earth has buried us down below
And like a setting sun
Your colors are fading into night
And I found peace in the stars above

Show me the way through this
Painted with a guarded shell
You're protected from anyone
But are you protecting yourself from yourself?

And then it falls apart
It's like you never even tried
Now the earth has buried us down below
And like a setting sun
Your colors are fading into night
And I found peace in the stars above

You sold your life
For the highest price
You are not alone here
But I bet you wish you were.

And then it falls apart
It's like you never even tried
Now the earth has buried us down below
And like a setting sun
Your colors are fading into night
And I found peace in the stars above
