afi lyrics

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep.
I can’t take this deeper panic.
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

Slowly, I’ll swallow your fears
For all of those years
How could you let them consume me?
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can’t take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

—  A Deep Slow Panic, AFI

Open my eyes as I submerge
And I won’t deny what I’ve been since birth.
I’ll die drowned by your standards
Breathe in the life of the summer’s death,
As the orange and red breathe their first breath,
So welcome, as they’re burning through

We all begin to burn
Autumn’s flame dances in my eyes
Set alight for all we’ve learned
My ashes falling

My skin is singed but it heals my heart
And with glowing pride I’ll wear my scars
I’m honored by your hatred
Leaves fall we arise again,
And the end impending,
It will begin

We all begin to burn.
Autumn’s flame dances in my eyes
Set alight for all we’ve learned.
My ashes falling.

Can you feel me?
GO! (x5)

Ashes fall and I’m rising up again. Ashes fall.
Ashes fall. Ashes fall as we all arise.
