Lyrics[edit | edit source]

hiding behind my hair today
my eyes dance with fire
the thought of living here
and the bounds i transpire
walking in this slow-motion town
i seem to think so fast
standing with your mannequin
i try to hold my breath
the grave that bears my name
transpires in a dream
i dream immortality
yet i fall in vain
cause as long as i don't breathe
i'll never be like them
standing with your mannequin
i try to hold my breath
if you go and i would stay
and you would call my name
i would cry, yes, i would cry
walking in or walking out
is the same as talking about my heart
my heart
hiding behind my hair today
wishing i was far away
walking in this slow-motion town
i seem to think so fast
standing with your mannequin
i try to hold my breath
if you go and i would stay
and you would call my name
i would cry, yes, i would cry
walking in or walking out
is the same as talking about my heart
my heart
if you go and i would stay
and you would call my name
i would cry, yes, i would cry
if you go and i would stay
you would call my name
i would die, yes, i would die
walking in or walking out
is the same as talking about my heart
my heart
