This song is by Dayseeker and appears on the album What It Means to Be Defeated (2013).

This is not my bed to rest, in the dirt
With no beat hailing from my chest
Resurrect me and bring color back to my eyes
Dying, pale-faced, sickened friend of mine
Speak with me for the last time

Dead man, show me where you rest your head
So I know not to follow any trace of your footsteps
Gravedigger, I watched you take a breath
And as the color left your face, the earth became your bed

This is the end, of your existence
But my own fate, lies in the palm of my hands
So every breath, moves with steps
To keep you far from me

There's no escaping the truth
There's no coming back for you

I feel death's hands wrapped around my neck
But dear God, I want to live instead

Only I will watch my veins run dry, and give out
Are we alone in life or only when we die?

Maybe with death will come a light, to be spread over the sky
Ad bring the end of something beautiful
Maybe my life is meant to chase, a god without a face
To build me as I'm meant to be

Oceans flood my, bruised and red eyes
As I awake and see the sun
Maybe with death will come a light
To be spread over the sky
