lyrics

Thomas is perfectly still.
Thomas is perfectly still.

Because Thomas is sure,
Because Thomas is sure,
That his luck is out.

Because there she is,
Because there she is,
Standing alone.

This puts Thomas on edge,
And this puts Thomas on edge,
And he’s trying not to fall.

Because she’s just standing there,
She’s just waiting for something,
Just waiting.
Staring vacantly.

So Thomas is perfectly still,
But Thomas knows when he sees an opportunity.

And Thomas isn’t afraid.
And Thomas is never afraid.

Hello,
My name is Thomas.

We met at the bus,
I think I'm sorry.

This day has been strange,
A day for chance.

A wonderful day,
So tell me.

Please, why do I keep seeing you?

(Thomas meets death)

I’m Lillith.
That’s…all.
I’m just…just Lillith.
This is where I want to be.
This is…a wonderful place.
This is...the most beautiful view .

Thomas is perfectly still.
Thomas is perfectly still.

Because Thomas is sure,
Because Thomas is sure,
That his luck is out.

Because there she is,
Because there she is,
Just standing alone.

And this puts Thomas on edge,
Oh this puts Thomas on edge,
And he’s sure to fall.

Because she’s just standing there,
She’s just waiting for something.

Just waiting
Just staring vacantly.

But Thomas knows when he sees an opportunity.

Lillith, my dear Lilith.
I want to hold your hand, Lillith.
I want to stand with you Lillith.

Well what brings you to the edge of the world? Says Lillith.

Well I…I woke from a horrifying dream.
I saw fire and flames.
I felt doom.

And I lost my job.
I thought I lost what made me.
But I found myself.

And I found myself thinking of you.
I always found myself thinking of you.

And those eyes—
Oh why, I found myself thinking of your eyes.
I felt them burn,
I felt them torture my soul, oh Lillith.

In the madness of this day I thought of you, Lillith.

Then she smiled.
And his small world comes apart.

And in that moment, a thunderous crack.
And his world really comes apart.
