lyrics

There's ash stains in the kitchen sink
The window's left open and you're fast asleep
But what I did tonight
Was sinful
Unholy
Unclean

The bedroom door creaks
I chase out the shadows and pull back the sheets
For tonight I was out
With my love
And her breath
Clings to me

With your name across the walls scrawled illegibly in red
The first light of the morning casting gray across my bed
My eyes jolt open
As the front door slams

And as the room takes shape
The twilight erodes leaving you in its wake
And the look that you gave
It was vicious
Hateful
Untamed

You sigh my name
I hang my head back as I wither in shame
For I am a villain
And I wear
A porcelain
Face

But I wouldn't wish on any enemy I've ever had
The kind of worthlessness I felt as I lifted my head
There's no way that you could understand

Last night I took a match against the bar around the bend
The alcohol exploded leaving 20 people dead
I burned my gloves and hid the evidence
And as I watched the building crumble from the sidelines how I cried
The smoke billowed and growled like engines hid behind the sky
I made the call that saved the rest of them

Somewhere the angels sing
Somewhere the lovers dream
But they never came to comfort me
Just stole away like you
