Lyrics[edit]

    The day they covered us in the dirt
    like stars in the ground 
    that will grow into dead flowers
    The day they covered us in the dirt
    like stars in the ground 
    that will grow into dead flowers
    
    Your body's on me 
    like sleepless spiders.
    Your touch is so empty 
    Your touch is so empty
    
    Your body's on me like
    sleepless spiders.
    Your touch is so empty 
    Your touch is so empty
    Your touch is so empty 
    Your touch is so empty
    
    I've been running 
    from the bloodless 
    for fear of exile
    for all of my sorceries 
    that shun the light
    shun the light
    I've been running 
    from the bloodless 
    for fear of exile
    for all of my sorceries 
    that shun the light
    shun the light
    
    The day they covered us in the dirt
    like stars in the ground 
    that will grow into dead flowers
    The day they covered us in the dirt
    like stars in the ground 
    that will grow into dead flowers
    
    I've been running 
    from the bloodless 
    for fear of exile
    for all of my sorceries 
    that shun the light
    shun the light
    I've been running 
    from the bloodless 
    for fear of exile
    for all of my sorceries 
    that shun the light
    shun the light
    light
    light
    light
    light
