Scratch the ice
Sense of time is a powerful thing
Love to cry
We love to
Dry skin flakes where there's ice in the vein
Half alive
Is this the start of the breakdown?
Scratch the earth
Sense of time won't be easily found
For the ones who defend
Breakdown is a final demand
As we love to to cry

I can't understand you
