history came to claim us on a thursday
and the way we became was so different
we believed we must be dying in the best way
the taste in the air was so vibrant
and they finally knew our names
and found us so enlightening
we were remembered as giants
seems all it takes to be is dying
all it really needs
is a spark in the darkness of trying
and in some starry sky they'll find us
they'll watch us split the atoms of being with such beauty
and they'll wonder how they missed us
in a darkened room
where we lay and we prayed in the shadows
and the walls grew thick with ivy
and you saw me grab hold of the last living fibre
and we tied ourselves together
and we fell into the darkness that crumbled around us
and i realised then i loved you
more than i could hold in the body i lost to this feeling
like life but so much stronger
oh hold me now
just hold me for one minute longer
oh hold on tight, and close your eyes
step into the light
i'll love you when i die
oh! rest with me tonight
as our bodies turn to fire
