In an island town with the rain falling down, the cloud takes the shape of the land. There you stand. I see you darkly shine, holding it still with your glance. It's the first of the year. It's your last chance to break with the fables, the damage, the lies. Either the truth or just the simple meeting of my eye would blow everything from the sky.

But you won't let it go and be cured. You carry that pain like a torch. And you don't even know what it's for. Anymore. Anymore.

My patience's been tried, sympathy been condemned. Pity's the last thing to go. From behind these walls I hear your footfalls wearing a hole in the ground. You're the first one to fall. Your the last one to break. Still, the spotlight will follow you down. Whether you own or deny what you're feeling inside, it's the moment that you must decide.

But you won't let it go and be cured. You carry that pain like a torch. And you don't even know what it's for. Anymore. Anymore.

There's no heaven. And there's no going home. And there's no devil - like the devil you know.

Tell me once, twice and then say it again. Can I convince you I've heard? As you expire your angry breath in my face and grimace an ironic word. You're the first one to cry out, the last thing on my mind. The distance between us too far. Never a time to return to your innocence spurned - to the promises that you have burned.

But you won't let it go and be cured. You carry that pain like a torch. And you don't even know what it's for. Anymore. Anymore.
