I reckon time
By the inches of my skin
Pulled ‘cross my spine
Where you used to slip right in

I never made
A place for you around
The scars and stripes
You’d salute on your way down

It’s just a shame
How the marks you left on me
In such a way
Only my own eyes could see

The story stained
The inside of my eyes
Won’t wash away
Not for all the tears I cry

So now I’ll try
To finally put you in your place
With clear design
The vacancy replaced

What’s left of you
Will finally dye inside my skin
To make room
So I can let my life begin
