A Bloody Ransom for a New Life

from by Circus Fires

lyrics

When all of these days blur into one and I'm left with a last impression,
I'll surrender on one condition - that the air won't bite me if I stand still.
But moving with it will accelerate into something with intentions just a bit weighed
towards a target that's not in plain sight, and ask a bloody ransom for a new life.

You wouldn't waste your breath on me.
Because I've learned to lose and still be free.

All the storms that reside in my mind are still no match for the fires in your eyes.
Something you told me is stuck in my side.
"Never forgive, never forget."

You could learn a thing or two from me.
Because I've learned to lose and still be free.

Now the devil's looking down
and a smile comes from a frown.
I can learn to laugh along with him now.

And now I wonder if I have ever lost touch on purpose.
And if you'd ever done the same?
If all my longings have been selfishly sought,
or if you've ever cursed my name.
Probably not. You're too good to me.

Now the devil's looking down
and a smile comes from a frown.
I can learn to laugh along with him now.
Will this closure that we've found try to drive me into the ground
if I can't learn to laugh along with him now?
