Oh, I want to know
Can you take me under?
Dream over, grieve no more
Now I lay thee down
Oh, she watched me leave
As she takes me under
Dream over, grieve no more
Now I lay thee down
Oh, godless mimicry while lights cemetery
Images so many broken dreams
Of pain, terror, fear crippling
Or will it end up in a black hole?

Within the eye of the beholder
Within the eye of the beholder
What have I done?
The only one I love

Why do you curse me?

And breathe one last time
Now I lay thee down, underground
