Mastodon – Dagger Lyrics

Mastodon Dagger Lyrics

I cannot bare to believe that you have left this Earth
I couldn’t stare as they covered you up with dirt and left

With all the best intent
And all your eloquence

The price we paid to know you

Your smile is stretching from the stars
I am still standing here in solace

I sense the writhing
Peeling off your skin
As the coals burn
We’ll walk on fire

The lines you carved remain
Too many days to remember
Too many times have I tried

The price we paid to know you
The price we paid to know you

A dark shadow was cast with your departure
Now dig our way out from this mudslide and survive

With all the best intent
And all your eloquence

The price we paid to know you

Projecting light from beyond
We stare until the bruises soften

Never will there
Be another you
As the Sun turns
We hold you tighter

The final curtain calls
How many ways you brought pleasure
How many nights you brought to life

The price we paid to know you
The price we paid to know you
