lyrics

Slowly life strips away, taking all that it can. 
Slowly time strips away everything, taking all that it can from you. 

Taking all. 

We have suffered the whole of existence, inching closer to death every day. Knowing nothing of passion and purpose, painting walls with a violent decay. 
Maybe someday they'll find us in pieces, buried beneath our elaborate displays.
Maybe someday they'll find us in pieces, beneath the remains. 

Slowly life strips away, taking all that it can.
Slowly time strips away everything, taking all that it can from you. 

History will not remember the quiet, the meek and the humble, the modest and safe.
They will speak of the cowards and conquerors, make immortal their glory and shame.
And the look in your eyes tells me something is hidden inside that you don't want to say- if you're in this alone, then I'm in this alone, and I'm walking away. 
As the last of my breath leaves my lungs- like the memory of strength from my limbs- let me lie in the quiet beside you. Let me lie in the quiet beside them.
Let me lie in the quiet beside you.
Let me lie in the quiet beside them.
