The Leaving

from Beyond Canon by Homestuck

lyrics

Smoke is all I breathe,
is all you hear, is all in me.
Taste the drier air.
There’s nothing left.

Letters fill the empty space.
There’s so much space that’s left untouched.
Running scares me more than God,
but staying can’t sustain.

The sparks of fire, earthbound,
have found your home. Be gone now.
It’s not your fault, you know this.
But the leaving is just the same.

I feel the wind beneath my arms.
It’s warmer now than I recall.
Have you heard the news today?
They closed the school.

You and I have been through this,
have been through that, have been at ease.
Nothing scares me more than God,
and Nothing cannot sustain.

The sparks of fire, earthbound,
have found your home. Be gone now.
It’s not your fault, you know this.
But the leaving is still the same.

You sent me fire.
Fire, I’ll tear my throat out.
Burn my blackened lips.
You gave me fire.
Fire, I’ll tear my heart out.
I’d rather tear my heart out.
But I can’t stay here.

The sparks of fire earthbound
have found your home. Be gone now.
It’s not your fault, you know this.
But you can’t help but turn around.
The embers haven’t faded.
The love you left, unmade.
It’s not your fault, you know this.
But the leaving is still the same.
