Chained to the radio
Listening for our song
It's as consistently inconsistent
As you've been all along

Keep singing me your melody
As you watch me walk away
Under the spell of your lyrics
I couldn't help but stay

My lips are dripping poison
You're straining to hear my voice
I'm the one tearing us apart
This time, it's my choice

The lack of words tells a tale
This was over from the start
As serious as a heart attack
Is the silence of my heart

Hurry now, take my hand
There's no time for fear
Balancing on the edge of reason
Only fate has brought us here

Here we sit in perfect denial
Holding on to what isn't real
There's nothing left of you and me
But the end seems all too surreal

So sleep well while you still can
My words will haunt your dreams
We've been branded by our past
Lost in our silent screams
