The curtains close on me
In what should've been my final moments
Awaken in my bed, the previous day

The lack of blood within me moments ago
Causes me to shiver

Exclude my memories,
And the reset days are nearly perfect
Almost convinces me that I am alone

But in a sea of static, someone's there
So I reach my hand out, and call to her
A lone companion in this world


Maria holds a box, an unfinished wish still being granted
Her past became the cost, a life she forgot
Helping others is her only desire
Even at her peril

Now she is at a loss
My exoneration has her troubled
Have thirty thousand days connected no dots?

The culprit's hidden in the grass long enough
Hanging in the balance, the ones here with us
And Maria's goal to mend her box



Lost, lost in speculation
Of the motive that built our walls
No wish made is flawless
Time's arrow can't be caught

A frightening method finds me
But my words provoked her ire
From what I've implied
That I see her as inhuman

And I shattered our bond
With my reply:
"Then why'd you let me die?"



Along an empty street
There's eerie sense it's missing details
I listen carefully, but I don't hear a sound

Is this the final cycle I'll recall?
Should I try and stop it? Is my journey done?
Is it better to not fight the storm?


Rain starts and I feel an ominous fright
When I realize the road I'm nearby
The crosswalk in sight, as a truck starts to slide
And the girl that I love in the headlights

Desparately fight to save her from the strike
But the gap between us is too wide
Hard as I try, I didn't make it in time
But someone pushes her aside


I finally understand now
The role Maria plays
Her tattered state consumes her with such pain
But she does not waver

With all that we've abandoned
Now far behind our backs
We watch the sky get swallowed by our stage
But I will not cower, I will not run
We'll reach tomorrow hand in hand
