Ice

Slowly, I’m withering
The spark in my eyes, it stopped glistening
Taped onto a wall with roses
Their thorns are filled with bad blood and hatred, it’s scorning
The seeds planted under my skin
It breaks through, I’m bleeding
The poison ivy climbs up my body
And makes me go numb

Now I can’t move
Control is what I lose
Tell me what to do
And if you know it too
The earth it starts shaking
The monsters are waking
Hungry for my soul
Cause in fact, that’s what they lack

But frost flowers can go hours
Without powers of somebody else
Independent of men and weather
We bloom better by ourselves

Slowly, I’m decaying
But I will never stop invading
Every troubled thought that passed my mind
And goes right through my spine and makes me shiver late in dark nights
I’m gonna find love
Cause I know I’ve got it in me
I’m gonna pray for the world to keep up with me
I’m gonna find you
Even if I’m all alone
Cause you know that after all

Frost flowers can go hours
Without powers of somebody else
Independent of men and weather
We bloom better by ourselves

And when the sun sets and the night arrives
I will rise
My arteries clogged up, but I’m fine
My blood turned to ice

Frost flowers can go hours
Without powers of somebody else
Independent of men and weather
We bloom better by ourselves

My blood turns to ice
I’m frozen and I’ve died
But I am alright
The strings, they play my songs
But I know it won’t be for long
Cause soon they will find summer once and for all
