about

The first single taken from the band's upcoming debut album 'In Memoriam'.

lyrics

As the constellations separated, the moonlight dimmed and dulled
All along, I was afraid of losing you the most

With the stars in my eyes, I was an oracle
I could see the constellations form in the sky like clockwork
Imagery of misery – beautiful destruction
But I passed it all off as a bad dream
Unconscious corruption

And then it came like lightning – a flash of blinding revelation
The night you lost your life, to match my nervous prediction

I knew before a single word ever let me know, that it was time to let you go
Didn't have a choice – didn't have a voice – drowned out by the noise of the faucet running

But I remember all those years ago, when we would lay beneath the sky, and you would always point to the moon
Telling me how you thought it was a big balloon, and that we should just deflate it
Watch it cascade – watch it float down – wither and fade, like the petals in your rose garden
Telling me the most beautiful things never last long, and you were never wrong

I watched your tormented eyes lose focus too easily
I hate myself because I never realised just how much you needed me
Could I have made a difference? Could I have changed the outcome for you?
I treat my hands like there's blood on them, and like there's nothing I can do

I knew before a single word ever let me know, that it was time to let you go
Didn't have a choice – didn't have a voice – drowned out by the noise of the faucet running
I knew before I had even picked up the phone, that you had just died alone
All those years of smiles, insincere; you never wanted to be here

As the constellations separated, the moonlight dimmed and dulled
All along, I was afraid of losing you the most

I knew before a single word ever let me know, that it was time to let you go
Didn't have a choice – didn't have a voice – drowned out by the noise of the faucet running
I knew before I had even picked up the phone, that you had just died alone
All those years of smiles, insincere; you never wanted to be here

Didn't have a choice but to feel you disappear
Didn't have a voice that you could ever hear
Didn't have a choice but to feel you disappear
Didn't have a voice – I never had a voice
