lyrics

Back and forth, push it through the floorboards
Memories won't let you breathe
And I am left to sift through the ashes
Flames have taken all of me
This house is unrelenting with the vision of you
The echoes are swallowing all, leaving hollow regrets that run me through
(Chain! Unchain! Chain! Unchain!)

Oh what strength it would take to break free, but
What if you did, what if you did

(chorus)
Transparent form of life, once I had called you mine
Transcend the black and white, reach down and shape this life
Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight

Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight
That will never falter but will survive

At first light you can bet that my first move will be to run to the door
Every spotlight begets a shadow, and though it's behind me
It's hungry jaws want more

(chorus)
Transparent form of life, once I had called you mine
Transcend the black and white, reach down and shape this life
Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight
That will never falter but will survive

Even from the mountain's height I can see the valley beneath me
The darkened path I've tread bares its claws and teeth to reach me

The rooms speak unintelligible whispers in your voice
It's coming from the other side of the bed and
It's the sound and the color
That fills up my heart and drains out the life
That's left inside my eyes

I wrap my heart in stone so I won't feel so alone
This granite casing is suffocating
An aching hand without a match to hold

(chorus)
Transparent form of life, once I had called you mine
Transcend the black and white, reach down and shape this life
Remove these blinded eyes and give me the gift of a giant's sight
That will never falter but will survive

Back and forth, push it through the floorboards
Memories of you here with me
And I am left to sift through the ashes
Flames will rebirth all of me
Though I'm moving, you're the only one alive
