Rose petals wither on the floor
As I am left to douse the candles and close the door.
Drawing the shades to complete the darkness,
Drawing the shades; shadows have never seemed so empty.

Everything that she has taken from me...
There was so much left to say,
And by the chill that she left with me,
I feel I should be able to see my breath.

Rose petals wither on the floor
As I am left to douse the candles and close the door.
Drawing the shades
To complete the darkness

Of what was once so sweet,
there is nothing left but a memory
As the smoke fills the room,
a murky suspension blurs the dim light

Golden stars of dust, suspended,
Shining for the days that once were
Longing, yearning, reminiscing
You, my only source of light in this darkness

Rose petals wither on the floor
As I am left to douse the candles and close the door.
Drawing the shades...
For what lies beyond the pane?

I remember when we had everything
Back when you could tell me anything
Never have I felt such worthlessness
Now I know I will live in emptiness
Track 6 from my band's album Altered State
