lyrics

Blood runs purple through my veins
And when I bleed, leaves purple stains
Swollen, bruised, my heart remains
Bound by heavy, purple chains

Even in Frost, you warm my bones
Though your wooden walls were cold as Stone
Your arms in the Chapel and to the South
A Valentine sweeter than any mouth

Blood runs purple through my veins
And when I bleed, leaves purple stains
Swollen, bruised, my heart remains
Bound by heavy, purple chains

Tall as Kings upon a Hill
You took my heart, but I found my will
And the candles laid at Memorial's feet
Flickered and died, more bitter than sweet

Blood runs purple through my veins
And when I bleed, leaves purple stains
Swollen, bruised, my heart remains
Bound by heavy, purple chains

Chip away, chip away, chip away at the stone
Vines creepin up the walls strangle bricks in their homes
The footpaths are rocky and long overgrown
Chip away, chip away, chip away at the stone
Always masking heavy eyes
Reveals something true to lies
Anchors rusted steadily through
But the pulse beats strong from me to you

Blood runs purple through my veins
And when I bleed, leaves purple stains
Swollen, bruised, my heart remains
Bound by heavy, purple chains (x2)

Oh, bound by heavy, purple chains
