Track Name: Amity (House Fire)
PART ONE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
it was young, the night was dead
by the time that i got home
i missed all of the reactions
the actions of your skin and bone
to totally remember every solid objects feel
in the winter of december
i left by losing that which is real

my house is a wreck
so sombre callous and upset
i couldn't love you more
i'm part of something i can't hide
or simply bottle up inside
i couldn't love you more

as i drove home it was dark
but for street lights
that illuminated
every single thing
my car was cold to the touch
but not jarring
simply fell across your body
as if you were stone

my house is a wreck
so sombre callous and upset
i couldn't love you more
i'm part of something i can't hide
or simply bottle up inside
i couldn't love you more

PART TWO
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
oh what luck you're a ghost and you follow me
we're in love but most of the time i don't know you're there
all the people they stare

and i'm so happy when you're around me
and you love me just as much as i love you
you love me don't you?

PART THREE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
(brother:)

oh my sister
what have you done?
oh my sister
what have you become?
where are you going?
what have you done?
i want to help you
i want you to see sun

(sister:)

oh my brother
i understand your sentiment
but i am broken
there's no help for me in sight
and i know that you are yearning to be
someone you are not
which is that which i am not

(brother:)

oh my sister
you are the most beautiful thing i know
and i hope that you get better
but i really have to go
so i stepped through her front doorway
left her sad and so alone
crying dark into soft water
staring into her cellphone
the display lit up with numbers
and her favourite photo
of a man and two small children
just some people she used to know
ever since that house fire
my sister spends her days
locked inside of her apartment
no matter what i say
