Lyrics

Swallow

Close my eyes tight
Hurt with this light
Your devious mind come shining through to me
Shining clear me
Head for home as the daylight grows
Crashing to the floor as a bitter sound rings clear
Your tragic song i hear
Happy thoughts and empty minds can’t justify my reasons

No joy for me, till the day I can hold my head up
King in my head, hung in shame
Swallow me

Head for home as the daylight grows
Crashing to the floor as a bitter sound rings clear
Your tragic song i hear

No joy for me, till the day I can hold my head up
King in my head, hung in shame
Swallow me

Skindive (Acoustic Version)

Blood distracts the pain
I’m back again, the sky is falling
Lying on my back, the drug attacks and I am taken
I should know better than believe you
You may not know how to be true
Bleeding hides my grief
Decide to leave, my eyes wide open
Hang myself around your neck
The stain spreads out, and pain
When can I go again

Skindive
Bleeding
Skindive
Clean up my my mind, my soul
My flesh and blood and face it all
Skindive

Standing still around me
Run the source of my distractions
Blackened room, the pictures flashing silver in my head
Need to believe this is the best way
Smile and the thoughts just flow away
Shiver to the beat, I’d love to leave but I was taken
Disappoint me, tell me this is great and I wont care
I wont care
I wont care

Skindive
Bleeding
Skindive
Clean up my my mind, my soul
My flesh and blood and face it all
Skindive

The sky is falling
And I am taken
Eyes wide open
Flesh is bleeding
The sky is falling
And I am taken
Eyes wide open
Flesh is bleeding
And I saw life move real slow
Lovers arms let me go
And there stands Christ, flesh and blood
Set me right, let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go

Skindive

Blood distracts the pain
I’m back again, the sky is falling
Lying on my back, the drug attacks and I am taken
I should know better than believe you
You may not know how to be true
Bleeding hides my grief
Decide to leave, my eyes wide open
Hang myself around your neck
The stain spreads out, and pain
When can I go again

Skindive
Bleeding
Skindive
Clean up my my mind, my soul
My flesh and blood and face it all
Skindive

Standing still around me
Run the source of my distractions
Blackened room, the pictures flashing silver in my head
Need to believe this is the best way
Smile and the thoughts just flow away
Shiver to the beat, I’d love to leave but I was taken
Disappoint me, tell me this is great and I wont care
I wont care
I wont care

Skindive
Bleeding
Skindive
Clean up my my mind, my soul
My flesh and blood and face it all
Skindive

The sky is falling
And I am taken
Eyes wide open
Flesh is bleeding
The sky is falling
And I am taken
Eyes wide open
Flesh is bleeding
And I saw life move real slow
Lovers arms let me go
And there stands Christ, flesh and blood
Set me right, let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
Let me go
