Only Ashes Remain

Play

What are you hiding from? What are you running for?
Is there something more, or are you just too scared to say you were better off before?
And now, for lack of better words, I guess I'll watch you crash and burn

'Cause you're breaking down, and I can't explain (breaking down)
Why everything has come undone and burst into flames (I can't explain why you are suddenly bursting in flames)
Burning out, only ashes remain (burning out)
And this something so familiar, take my word will surely wash away (if only you could see that now you're only ashes)

So I wait, I wait for the truth, but I guess it wouldn't come from you, anyway
In time, in time you'll realize it's all what you decide, so what did you decide?
Is it out with the old and in with the new? I guess I wanted better for you

But you're breaking down, and I can't explain (breaking down)
Why everything has come undone and burst into flames (I can't explain why you are suddenly bursting in flames)
Burning out, only ashes remain (burning out)
And this something so familiar, take my word will surely wash away (if only you could see that now you're only ashes)

And you'll say it's only me and nothing has gone wrong
Just take a look, you'll see, yeah, you will see it too

'Cause you're breaking down, and I can't explain
Why everything has come undone and burst into flames
Burning out, only ashes remain (burning out)
This something so familiar, take my word will surely wash away (if only you could see that now you're only ashes)
