Lyrics

What's there left to say?
All these tainted words are wasted breath
Nothing but decay
Circles all that we have built and killed
What else can we do
When we cannot even trust a friend?
Or are we even friends
When we main each other through and through?

Who'd have thought this ended as it did?
Let me sleep, don't wake me up to see the sight of ...

Five hearts bleeding from a war of minds
Five minds rotting from a war of wills
Five wills crushing all the love and joy
Of five friends dead and gone

If you turn away,
Don't look back 'cause I may pierce your eyes
If you walk away,
I will feel too numb to even cry
When you've had your say,
I will promise not to hear a word
And when you've gone away,
I'll remember this as too absurd

Salvage what you can, there's nothing much
Let me sleep, don't wake me up to see the sight of ...

Five hearts bleeding from a war of minds
Five minds rotting from a war of wills
Five wills crushing all the love and joy
Of five friends dead and gone

Let me sleep, don't wake me up
Let me sleep, don't shake me up
Let the memories fade away
Don't look back, just turn away

Let me sleep, don't wake me up to see the sight of ...

Five hearts bleeding from a war of minds
Five minds rotting from a war of wills
Five wills crushing all the love and joy
Of five friends dead and gone

Five friends who never thought their love would end
Five friends each one stabs the other's back
Five friends fighting to a bitter death
Till all five friends are gone
