Track Name: Short Dirge for the Long Run
Yellow dress,
a white smile.
Laughter in your eyes
I haven't seen for awhile.
With your broken jaw
you can barely speak.
I'm thinking that's the best
for you and me.

When life comes to meet us
We'll be holding out our hands to greet.
Every followed misdirection
every broken heart we'll never meet,
we'll never seek.

Oh short life
I'm on your side
and we're running
faster, now slow it down.
Don't jump, don't scream your evils
You'll wake up
with regrets you can't ignore.

Subtle mess,
a raging fire.
The weapon is your words
they do the deed as liars.
The field's been burned
the harvest done
I think we'll start it up
As soon as winter's gone.

When life comes to meet us
We'll be holding out our hands to greet.
Every followed misdirection
every broken heart we'll never meet,
we'll never seek.

Oh short life
I'm on your side
and we're running
faster, now slow it down.
Don't jump, don't scream your evils
You'll wake up
with regrets you can't ignore.

With regrets you can't ignore
a tempered spirit
gone so long.
Shattered, shattered
put back the pieces.
Some are missing
some are forever gone.
