Track Name: Ashtray
I never died
When winter came I was alive
And I ran away
To keep me safe
Tallied the walls 'til the spring arrived
I never cried
I wanted to thousands of times
When I thought of you
Old words seemed new
Hiding my face as they came to life

I will never see it coming
But I know that I will be there on the last day
When we leap out of the fire
And we leave it all behind us
In the ashtray
Taken away

One man was blind
But he could see out of his mind
And he spoke to me
Ten pages deep
Said give me your heart
And I'll be your eyes
That was the start
Kingdoms started falling apart
Soon the dust will breathe
In golden streets
Second hand marking the
End of time

I will never see it coming
But I know that I will be there on the last day
When we leap out of the fire
And we leave it all behind us
In the ashtray
Taken away
Yeah-a-ay

Open your eyes
Time to reveal the surprise
Was it worth the wait
No need to say
Show me the wonder
It just won't hide

I will never see it coming
But I know that I will be there on the last day
When we leap out of the fire
And we leave it all behind us
In the ashtray

I will never see it coming
But I know that I will be there on the last day
When we leap out of the fire
And we leave it all behind us
In the ashtray
Taken away

(Oh-oh-oh)
(Hey- hey)
(Mmmmm)
