lyrics

Slipping off to sleep
Your tender skin, your soft breath sound
So much the same and so much change
Ten years since we found
A chat exchange, commonplace
But then you stuck around
I didn't know your motives then
But we were somehow bound

Wake up, wake up, Minerva
I have dreamt a brand new scene
Your wisdom and your warfare
Have been the heart of my being
I know I take and take and take
And have no offering
But I have planned a grand finale
Somewhere in-between

Laying on the lawn
Your tender whispers in my ear
A story, glory, filled with heroes
Helping us hide our fear
Did I ever tell you, lover, I always want you near?
Did I hold you close enough to keep you safe my dear?

Henceforth if we leave this city
I am good to go
Nothing more keeps me here
A death kind and slow
The tenderness of poison
Sweet enough to ease the blow
I always saw the seams split apart
But I didn't want to know

Wash away the yesteryears
There's no regret in these tears
Wash away the yesteryears
There's no regret in these tears

No health in a hospital
With guns and riot gear
Can you cure a common cold
Infection with fear?
Disease is not a mindset
But it creeps into the mind
Tenderness for hindsight
Seeking something kind

When we let our guard down
The truth came out so fast
Disarming our hard found
Barriers at last
I never told another
The things I shared with you
I never even bothered
To think those things through

Laying on the lawn
Your tender whispers in my ear
A story, glory, filled with heroes
Helping us hide our fear
Did I ever tell you, lover, I always want you near?
Did I hold you close enough to keep you safe my dear?

Henceforth if we leave this city
I am good to go
Nothing more keeps me here
A death kind and slow
The tenderness of poison
Sweet enough to ease the blow
I always saw the seams split apart
But I didn't want to know

Wash away the yesteryears
There's no regret in these tears
Wash away the yesteryears
There's no regret in these tears
