Track Name: Rapier
choose your words wisely
choose the ones to leave unsaid
for they will live between us
breathing on their own

choose your words with care
choose the ones to leave unsaid
for they will never leave us
breeding on their own

choose your weapon wisely
weigh out the damage you wish to deal this time
for what you bring to this duel
will set the rules

choose your weapon with care
the poison to dip your blade in
for the wounds will heal slowly
after we are done

and i will meet you here
for time and time again
re-acting this violent scene
no heroes in the end

choose your words wisely
choose the ones to leave unsaid
for they will form the script
left for me to write

choose your words with care
choose the ones to leave unsaid
for they will be repeated
on and on again

and i will meet you here
for time and time again
re-acting this tiring scene
no heroes in the end

raise the curtain, the show's about to begin
cue the actors, for their moment is at hand
reenacting what i cannot leave behind
alone
i watch
how the blades are drawn

all these lines
close to heart
written on my skin
with fading ink
only i can see

all this time
close to heart
written on my skin
with faded words
only i can read

and i will meet you here
for time and time again
re-acting this endless scene
no heroes in the end

there is no-one left to bow
no applause
no curtain calls
there is nothing left but me
captivated lone audience
