​Steps Ascending

This song is by Thursday and appears on the album War All the Time (2003).

Steps ascend to a loaded gun
The scent of matches hangs in the air
A lit one flickers out in a heartbeat
We don't want to see this
A flash of light that's letting go
Of an empty bullet case but by the time it hits the ground,
He's out of reach
(Let go, let go)

Out reach
(Let go, let go)
Out reach
(Let go, let go)
Out reach
(Let go, let go)
Out reach
(Let go, let go)
(Out of reach)

The wolves are closing in
There's no room left to make amends but
Do you remember when we'd fly that kite so high?

All the time we've wasted (Wasted)
Spent fighting (Fighting)
We'll burn in the fire of our regrets
All the time we've wasted (Wasted)
Spent fighting (Fighting)
Its blood and its running down the stairs

Freeze the frame
Between the gunshot and the hole it makes
A spinning bullet hangs in the middle
There's no way to stop it
It will surely hit the mark
You can try to understand but I'm giving up
Giving up
Giving up
The synapses fire it's right in time
I'm giving up
Giving up
Giving up
This should always stay out of reach
(Let go, let go)

Out reach
(Let go, let go)
Out reach
(Let go, let go)
Out reach
(Let go, let go)
Out reach
(Let go let go)

The wolves are closing in
There's no room left to make amends but
Do you remember when we'd fly that kite so high?

All the time we've wasted (Wasted)
Spent fighting (Fighting)
We'll burn in the fire of our regrets
All the time we've wasted (Wasted)
Spent fighting (Fighting)
Its blood and its running down the stairs

I ran down the stairs and into the garden
Put both my hands into the soil
In the spring
You will bloom
Like her heart through the blouse in the back of the ambulance
As it turned and it turned in the streets
(Out of reach, out of reach)
Just one more turn wont you come back to me?
(Out of reach, out of reach)
As it turned its red lights
(Out of reach, out of reach)
You were turning into...
Red roses
Red roses
Red roses
Red roses

I'm not giving up.
