I found a reason to leave you with this love
All I can do is forgive your broken heart
Trapped in this town made of amber for too long
All I can do is forgive your broken hearts

Higher than mountains of cavernous people
Searching for a lighthouse in the fog

 

Rest in Peace, The Mars Volta (2001 - 2013)

Taken by the night
Dye the gates remembrance

Check the puzzle, does it fit
I am alpha and omega

And on the seventh day I rise
Past the pangs of my resistance

When the son gives up his throne
What becomes of this theft

Dasehra, make these shackles go away
Dasehra, make these shackles go away

Dasehra, won’t you help me stand my ground if I should fall

Dasehra, as long as I am injured
Dasehra, as long as I remember

Dasehra, as long as I am injured
Dasehra, as long as I remember

Empty Vessels Make the Loudest Sound - The Mars Volta

If I trust in the wind, she will pave me a different road
I will try and start over, but I think I must choose someone else
I am pulled from the pages where the letters lack the pigment of trust

Must be on my way, I’ve got to get home
Won’t be back someday, so let it unfold

I’ve abandoned the outcome in search of the rest I deserve
You can do what you will with my body, but I won’t ring the bell
I’ve omitted the chapters that bow and admit defeat
