lyrics

We need to find a way to keep this old blood running

It's flowed too long to end this way

try to find a way to keep the skin from turning

Revealing more than man can take

It's too late to save us from the thought of our own deaths

It creeps in and ignores us

It takes hold of our loved ones and our elders and wont leave

We need to find a way to keep this old blood running

It's flowed to long to end this way

You don't have to lie

I've played it over in my head

It was my own design

I'm just trying to run away from the truth again

Tell me the moves I make

That they're not all in vain

Tell me the words I chose

Will not be lost on those I love

Because everything around me

Is more permanent than I

And everything we've learned won't

Help us stay alive

But I write so I can last in the faintest sense of the word

Where I am only the words that I chose to leave behind

But where is my direction?

Where is my decision?

And why can I never bring myself to listen

I'm just trying to run away from the truth again

Death you are the one who makes me understand

Love you are my only reason to avoid death's hand
