Skin & Bones - Daytrader

Atropos has called out to me
She says, "This is where and when you'll die"
So I reply, "What happens next?"
And receive no answer this time
So it just sinks

It sinks into my bones
The sinking anchor
The intolerable weight
My fate will find my here
A silken thread always finds where it came from

She calls again
Another where, another when
But it piques no interest this time, no
I reply again, "I do not fear death"
But it's a lie
It's always a lie
So it just sinks
It's a lie
So it just

It sinks into my bones
Sinking angrily and sorrowfully
My fate will find my here
A silken thread always finds where it came from

The thread's still tethered
The questions asked are left with no answers yet to speak of
At twilight, still left with no answers
Skin and bones left to wonder if it's a lie

It sinks into my bones
Sinking angrily and sorrowfully
My fate will find my here
A silken thread always finds where it came from
My fate will find me here
I'll bleed where I've bled
At twilight we'll be free
