Embers

A breakdown from the inside
A silent sparkle as the family starts to crumble
We sit alone in separate rooms
The darkness keeping us awake

The days fly by and you don't say a thing
Everyone talks but no one's listening
Walls crack, doors shut, eyes close
To the distances between ourselves

The strings pull us farther away
With every passing moment they try listening
But conversation has died when the lights
Went down, and there's barely glowing embers
