Mastered by Doug Van Sloun at Focus Mastering


There’s a way that you put up your hair
That makes me feel weak and underprepared
And the smoke doesn’t show
But the torch that I carry still burns for you

There's no way to mend anything
With wounds that won't heal
And throats that won't sing
(While your ghost roams the house
Winds the clock and creaks the stairs)
The burden of time
Is the cross I have to bear
