Halfwayhome On the Passing of Fairy Tale Heroes Lyrics

am i responsible for holding the candle
that set fire to the world
and let loose all it's burden
from the room where time stands still
functioning on pride and will
stand alone so culpable
for burning eden

i won't be poisoned by your ghost
i won't be captive to obsession
until you learn that this is all pretending
so much for a heart in free fall
tonight we offer your possession
and read aloud from your storybook ending

from here we buy back our reality
the weight of words now fleeting
like the venom deep inside of me
with bullets dancing through the air
the chaos isn't everywhere
but finding silver linings in the death scene
is our ticket out of here

i won't be poisoned by your ghost
i won't be captive to obsession
until you learn that is all pretending
so much for a heart in free fall
tonight we offer your possession
and read aloud from your storybook ending

words come out like bitter pills
a mouthful that is killing me
vocalized and fluid
in this vanity parade
these words come out like photographs
all celluloid and memory
each one a turning moment
set loose inside our veins

i won't be poisoned by your ghost
i won't be captive to obsession
until you learn that this is all pretending
so much for a heart in free fall
tonight we offer your possession and read
aloud from your storybook ending
