Oh Blinded, Now I see that I could not hold you. 
My orange tree lived in the darkened room 
From three words to share. 

Maybe you were free before my blackened wing covered you 
I took the sing from your song 
I made a bed where you don't belong.

Oh pull me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up.
Black Sea, I failed to be the light you found in love.

Oh pull me, she fell beneath the wheels to help me up.
Black Sea, the monster killed the melody you loved.

And now I'm going places on my own 



Verse II

Blinded, now I see the death, moves amongst us 
And with such ease surround us 
These silent beasts so hard to bare. 

Lonely, oh no not me 
I have a grave to dig 
Fast moving feet 
You gave me light where it once was gone 
I made a bed, where we don't belong.
