lyrics

You cut her name into your heart
You burn his name into your arm
Cast out the pig you kiss as love
Heaven is closed for now you are alone
This too, this too shall pass away
This too, this too will pass away
Listen, Steven is singing to you
The pain of life you wipe away
A reason, that fine gray ash shall
Recall these days
Inquire
The serpent
To become a rag of a dream
Interred
You arrive
And you wave as if she could care
But she can't
Nor can you
The relinquishing and a flickering
Out of loss
This too, this too shall pass away
This too, this too shall fade away
Listen, Steven is singing to us
The pain of life you wipe away
Perhaps depraved is who you are
Why not?
Depraved at least you're not alone
Overcome by the truth you face that you can't
Get up or look up
At the moon
Without throwing up and it
Stay the same all the time
Lie and wait
It stop again like a bee
It will die
When it stings you once
And its small bee's head will fall off
This too, this too shall pass away
This pain will pass away
Listen, Steven is singing to you
The pain of life you wipe away
