I don’t wanna know, how it ends
Will the broken boy, walk again?
Into the forest – of swaying trees
Though its limbs do move most unnaturally

Down the wooden steps – they softly creak
The fog is taking a shape that cannot be
Within his palm a magic pearl
Will the thief give up his loot to save the girl?

Let’s fall apart, meet again
Let’s fall apart, so to amend.
Let’s come undone - as if we’ve won – you’ll see
Let’s fall apart

The tender poet has a soldier on his knees
A hunter’s pooling blood, spreads his disease
A hollow body lays within the trace
Let’s wipe for prints, save October grace

Let’s come apart, rewrite the end.
Let’s fall apart, meet up again
Give the loot - for the girl – in the end you’ll see
Let’s fall apart, you and me.
