Come to My Senses

I’ve been on fire for days
a stove full of hot coal
constantly burning away

That’s how it feels
it’s overheating the oven
now the iron is meltin’

What was my heart
ain’t nothin but rags now
in the smoldering ashes so

On old friends I call
yes, i call them up
try to get some distraction

Yeh, I’m completely surrounded
Hey, by all your fragments now
you float around me
maybe I’ve lost my senses

You hear the sirens go by
you can’t find your way home
it’s your house on fire

You try, so hard you try
help it ain’t comin’
the bird's dead on the wire

Rise up! You cry
but Van Gogh’s in his bed
he’s just laying there dyin’

Got one question bleeding his mind
was all that loving you
worth this much burning?

Yeh, I’m completely surrounded
Hey, by all your fragments now
you float around me
Yes, I’ve lost my senses

I dreamt I saw you today.
You walked through the black smoke
of my charred ruins

You brushed destruction away
and bright as an angel,
you kissed my wounds.

I did my best to say
that I love you forever,
but not really say it – no

I had to look away.
If I wrote you a love song,
maybe one day, you’ll play it

Yeh, I’m completely surrounded
Hey, by all your fragments now
you float around me
maybe I’m coming to my senses.

Yeh, I’m completely surrounded
Hey, by all your fragments now
you float around me
Yes, I’ve come to my senses
