We're all dying together
That nearing forever
It consumes me
And there's no denying
That I'd be lying
If I said I was coping alright
With it

But I've got a chest that burns a fearless red
Every time that you are near
You illuminate the darkness that I find myself living within

'Cause I was wandering lost
Just trying to join the dots
Paint a picture of a life that wouldn't fade nor rot
But there's no denying (I was hollow)
You poured the light in (dark before you)
Brought a purpose to my life (came along and lit me up so)

'Cause I've got a chest that burns a fearless red
Every time that you are near
You illuminate the darkness that I find myself living within

'Cause it hurts a whole lot
To be on your own
In this world that is not
Built for being alone
And when I'm sunk again
Desperate for some meaning and I can't dispel
The cavernous empty feeling inside
Make everything alright
Ignite my will to life

So lay me down on my bed
Make an incision across my chest
Expose my insides
Pull out the wet wood of previous failed attempts
Fill me up with moments blessed
Douse me down with incendiary words that you've said
Fuel to last me until I'm dead
Strike a match and watch the fire spread now

I gotta chest that burns a fearless red
Every time that you are near
You illuminate the darkness that I find myself living within

'Cause I've got a chest that burns a fearless red
Every time that you are near
You illuminate the darkness that I find myself living within

I was hollow, full of dark before
Now I'm spilling light from my incandescent core
Burning brightly with purpose and truth
Oh, bringer of light
I owe it all to you

A will to life!
