Free ride

Where do you keep the vials

For when you’re all used up

I am a daylight vampire

I need your blood

 

Derelict conductor and the strings are slack

The teacher faces the wall

Outside the circle still it’s swimming past

Peep show crack in the door

And won’t you please lift me free

won't you please lift me free

won't you please lift me free

won't you please lift me free

 

I left my shadow behind

Calling out into the night

I took a free ride to get me there

To break the barrier and feel the air

I took a free ride to get me there

The last skin is the hardest to shed

 

The sky doesn’t cry

And the trees don’t groan

The earth is cold and hard

There’s no one home

 

But for the creatures clawing at my feet

You know I’d be a million miles from here

They got me on my knees

and I can’t break free

They’re trading knives and plates

for zero gravity

And won’t you please lift me free

won't you please lift me free

won't you please lift me free

won't you please lift me free

 

I left my shadow behind

Calling out into the night

I took a free ride to get me there

To break the barrier and feel the air

I took a free ride to get me there

The last skin is the hardest to shed
