or
Rise Against

The music played with a common frequency
The speakers gently seeped the sound
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 streets with melted snow cascaded down it's length

The music pulsed louder, yet gentle
Like the far away squeal of a pot of boiling water
The skylight was glowing faintly
With a 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 past twenty minutes
Or hardly spoken

As we were, so perfect, so happy
I'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

'Why are you doing this''
She spoke without expecting a response
Her voice penetrated the still air of our speechless drive
So silent 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 tear 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
And we barely could even hear the questions

As we were so perfect, so happy
I'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, Lord, give me the way
Before both of us haunt you
We'll steal tonight
(We'll steal tonight)

As we were so perfect, so happy
Don't remember, only your 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

Our cracking voices became part of the music
The car pressed on faster through he night
As our voices lowered, the cadence again overtook the air
Up ahead there was a curve approaching
She made no indications of slowing
