lyrics

I’m caught in a web weaved from the silk of the blackest lie
I wish I could say I haven’t regretted a day in my life
I placed a bet on when I thought I would die
And everyday I’m getting closer to cashing out

Four more years to go
I’ve got a lifetime to make up for
But nothings changed I’m still the same
I’ll carry on decaying through these days
There’s a golden line, there’s a golden line
That I’m too afraid to cross
Where’s my silver lining
All I see is black

Can someone please translate these images to words
That I can understand, I’m struggling to read
read between the lines I can’t see the meaning
your hiding in plain sight

Four more years to go
I’ve got a lifetime to make up for
But nothings changed I’m still the same
I’ll carry on decaying through these days
There’s a golden line, there’s a golden line
That I’m too afraid to cross
Where’s my silver lining, where’s my silver lining
All I see is black

This ship has sailed and crashed into the rocks of a far away shore
I should have followed the light but the engine failed and we were taken by the waves
I’ve left this world and I leave it all to you, not that it was ever mine to give
It's never mine to give
So I’ll drift in a plain of none existence, with no voice to speak my final words
Just hope, just hope that they’ll make their way to you
I never felt a thing
