lyrics

It's the strangest relief to learn your beliefs aren't true
And it's hard to admit that the one life was it and it's through
But at night you're alive and you stand there and smile like you do
But it only works if I'm still, so I'll stay a statue till I'm through

So they say you're away, it's a much better place, from their pews
But with all that's around us I can't quite take heart like they do
But at night you're alive - just in memory, but I know it's you
But it only works if I'm still, so I'll stay a statue till I'm through

If I sleep, I might dream, but if I eat I'll keep living
This hell that I'm in where some devil winning
I wanted to be strong, I wanted to move on
But I open my eyes and I wake to no one
But if I'm still I'm with you, so I'll stay a statue till I'm through

But if I'm still I'm with you, so I'll stay a statue till I'm through
