Stakes (Vancouver Sleep Clinic)

From the lake Where I lost it all Stacked on the stakes Yet you blessed the fall I guess that I knew I was warned I left my words in the cold The things that I built for myself Castles are tumbling down Surrender the heir, savour the crown Here lies where I drown The first time that I sought for grace But not the last lung I'd put to waste I'm burning down the stakes Wash away, wash away (2x) Tumbling through this jaded book The hearts I stole, the air I took What love is this And now the photograph is all that's left To feed the wolves and empty chests To break the best The first time that I sought for grace But not the last lung I'd put to waste I'm burning down the stakes Wash away, wash away (4x) I never bled for a thousand lies Just to stem the flow I never wept over a thousand lives Just to let this go (2x) Wash away, wash away, wash away, wash away
