I cut myself for you
I hurt myself for you
I have nothing else

I can’t forget the dream
the dream where I was happy
the dream where I was saved
saved from my self

and so now here we are
all so much broken glass
standing upon the ocean of broken glass
children cast from eden
children who committed no sin
children crying in the dark
standing upon the ocean of broken glass
all so lost and crying in the dark

I want to touch your face but
I’m so afraid to hurt you
I think it’s broken
everything is wrong

there’s only this silence where there should be light
only despair where there should be tears
yes I can see it now
this is how it ends
this is how it ends
this is how it ends
this is my only way home

please don’t leave me please
don’t run away please
love me please give me
everything
please strip every worthless thing I am
away

take the knife and
cut me open
let me fly free

soon is the time of the final dawn
and I will meet you
here…
