A Requiem for Dead Souls Among the Living

I thought I could smother

Those yearnings with quiet ease

So I resolved myself into a life of solitude

But the voices inside my heart

Want fireworks and shooting stars

They scream for supernovas and black holes

I cave in, signing a thousand death certificates

As little by little, I scatter a piece of my soul

And with every love found and lost

With every hello and goodbye

I watch them wither like autumn leaves
