Verse 1

The purple clouds

Floating will vouch

For me when I'm gone.

My shadow strolls

Without a soul

Towards a bright dawn.

Verse 2

The monsters scream

Inside your dream,

My name on their lips.

Don't cry for me,

My spirit's free,

There's peace in sweet sleep.

Chorus

When my eyes close

For what's the very last time, I'm sure,

Know that I chose

To save my heart, death will make it pure.

Verse 3

Life is sacred,

And I have bled

Gallons of my sin.

There's no hope here,

Not enough tears

To wash my scarred skin.

Verse 4

Innocents die,

We watch wide eyed,

I'm just a lost cause.

I have no right

To stay the night,

Don't cry for the loss.

Chorus

When my eyes close

For what's the very last time, I'm sure,

Know that I chose

To save my heart, death will make it pure.

Bridge

When my eyes close,

There won't be any pain to endure.

Know that I froze

Inside myself, and this is the cure.

Chorus

When my eyes close

For what's the very last time, I'm sure,

Know that I chose

To save my heart, death will make it pure.
