Two Of Us
In the Key of Bbm

When the earth opens up
And swallows you down
All the light from the moon
And the stars will be drown
And when the light in your eyes flickers and fades away
You'll find that it's too late because
When the lights go out they stay

When you wake up down here
And a light fills the room
This light that you're seeing by
Is a thread from the devil's loom
Cause he sews his world up in fire
And I really don't care who you are
You'll stand before him blackened and burned
And you can't tell the skin from the scar

When your skin turns to ash
and falls away in the wind
And your heart clenches in regret
Of all the sin you've sinned
And the swarm of dust mites that fill the air
Will cloud the sun from your sight
And the dust and the ash will grow less everyday
And all your days will be night

But...the...
Moon and the stars will grown birghter
And the blindness in your eyes will fade away
And the fire will grow paler and the black will melt away
And the chains on your feet will decay
and that which is not will suddenly be
When there's two of us instead of only me
