Track 8 from The Suffer & the Witness



[Spoken]

The music played with a calming frequency

The speakers gently seeped the sounds of ambient keyboards and light percussion

Creating a seductive soundtrack to our midnight drive through curtains of blackness

The windows were cold to the touch, reflecting the icy conditions in our immediate extremity

Salt stains and fingerprints littered the glass

And streaks with melted snow cascaded down its length

The music pulsed louder, yet gentle, like the far away squeal of a pot of boiling water

The skylight was glowing faintly with vague hints of an impending dawn

The car raced along a painfully straight stretch of road

And she hadn't so much as turned the steering wheel two degrees in the last twenty minutes

Nor had we spoken



As we were, so perfect, so happy

They'll remember only our smiles

Cause that's all they've seen

Long since dried, when we are found

Are the tears in which we had drowned

As we were, so perfect, so happy



[Spoken]

"Why are you doing this?" she spoke as if not expecting a response

Her voice penetrated the still air of our speechless drive, so suddenly that my heart had jumped

"I'm not doing anything." I said, but I didn't even believe that myself

"This is what's best, for me, for you, for us," or maybe just for me, I thought

As a tears formed in the pit of her eye

The music poured through the speakers and we were losing ourselves in the cadence

She looked down momentarily and closed her eyes

For a bit longer than a standard blink

Then she was crying

Then she was shouting

Then I was shouting

Now pouring confessions, having no answers, or solutions

We barely even knew the questions



As we were, so perfect, so happy

They'll remember only our smiles

Cause that's all they've seen

Long since dried, when we are found

Are the tears in which we had drowned

As we were, so perfect, so happy



Don't put me underground

I was meant for a life somewhere else

Please, love, give me the wheel

Before both of our hearts

You will steal tonight (will steal tonight)



As we were, so perfect, so happy

They'll remember only our smiles

Cause that's all they've seen

Long since dried, when we are found

Are the tears in which we had drowned

As we were, so perfect, so happy



[Spoken]

Our cracking voices became part of the music

The car pressed on faster through the night

As our voices lowered, the cadence again overtook the air

Up ahead there was a curve approaching

She made no indications of slowing
