…Consumed by the ending of one, I became no one...
There is no future as I fade into you
Past holds all the cards
All I see are fallen stars
The universe went numb the day you went into the ground
The deafening sound of silence, profound
Didn’t really understand that day
I was lost in my thoughts of your decay
Didn’t realize in that moment I died too
My soul went into the ground with you
