Pale and Shapely Bone

Lyrics:
(1st verse) 
Let me feel you lift me to our closest star
  Let me steal you like the precious thing you are
  Stony gazes make my colorless skin crawl
  Passing through phases, our only hope is to evolve

(2nd verse)
  We put our hopes and dreams on a rocket ship to Mars
  It’s closer than it seems, the future’s not so far
 You’re watching Venus rise, I’ve never felt so low
  No though escapes the mind, no light escapes the soul

(chorus)
 All I want is to burn through your black hole eyes
Pray don’t close your eyes, look to the sky and I’ll show you your first blue sunrise

(3rd verse)
 Come off the ceiling, you know you’re making me feel low
  Home’s just a feeling, and it’s one I cannot know
  Ten thousand liar’s words have left me on my own
  Build me a pyre of pale and shapely bone

(chorus)
 All I want is to burn through your black hole eyes
Pray don’t close your eyes, look to the sky and I’ll show you your first blue sunrise

(bridge)
Hold your breath, I think we might be burning
See what’s left of a lifetime of learning
Give me the shattered remains of your life
Give me a ground and some air and a sky
And I’ll make you a home
Just please don’t leave me alone
I am but pale and shapely bone
My blood stains the soil of my home
My heart belongs to you, oh god, I swear it’s true 
Too fast, too late, too small, too great, so bright, so soon, so hard, so dark, how can I live a world apart?

(outro)
  Shall you seek your kind or choose to be alone?  
  No thought shall taint the mind, no blood shall stain the bone
