Song Lyrics

Smoke & Rust


Words and Music by Kirsten Ireland


the passing time has monstered us
the giving we gain is never enough
the heap of our flaws is piling up
in the room where we sleep of smoke and rust

the smoke works to hide the erosion
while the silence supplies the pending explosion
and we smile and we lie to mask the emotion
that is piled up inside and mismarked devotion

look at the years we have between us
what does it say when they don't mean much
we close our lines when things get rough
while pretending we like all the smoke and rust

the smoke works to hide the erosion
while the silence supplies the pending explosion
and we smile and we lie to mask the emotion
that is piled up inside and mismarked devotion
