The Light & the Glass is the eleventh song of Coheed and Cambria's 2003 album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

After the song proper finishes, a melody is played. This melody closes with a recurring piece of music previously heard in The Hollow, The Broken, Everything Evil, God Send Conspirator, and The Ring in Return. It will be heard once more in the saga on the track Keeping the Blade. As with most interludes of this nature, it is believed by fans to represent the passing of time, or a change in scene.

Lyrics Edit

Slowly the pen touches paper in the guidance of the words that you write
Memories roll in of the things you once did
And who you had shared them with, is somebody thinking of you?
Did I bother telling you this, with the words that cross teeth and jump lips?
A poor choice of words in wanting to tell you anything
But words don’t come with ease they're forever my hurt
Would it really matter if you were to count the days left with your hands?
Your focus secure and the loves you left, well
Smiles staged in photographs, here until...

You... You left the light on
There’s a chance I might have tripped, girl
You were there to hold on

Ignoring the words of your obnoxious little brother
Kill or be killed spilled the words from your mother
I’ll lay awake for a while
I’ll leave the light on a while

But you couldn’t last a lifetime, caught between here and the days of it
Carving her name across your arm, with every wish it's hit or miss her
I told you so, I measured distance in lines departing the rest of my life
But you, you, you... you had better things to do...
But you, you, you... you had better things to do...

Liar... liar... liar...

Ignoring the words of your obnoxious little brother
Kill or be killed spilled the words from your mother
I’ll lay awake for a while
I’ll leave the light on a while

But you couldn’t last a lifetime, caught between here and the days of it
Carving her name across your arm, with every wish it's hit or miss her
I told you so, I measured distance in lines departing the rest of my life

If you get put to sleep, like an old dog you’re better off
If you get put to sleep...
I’ve been cautious with the words I extend
Allow this year before the world starts to end

Your fathers dead, he passed in his sleep...
And I woke to the sounds of her crying...
Your fathers dead, he passed in his sleep...
And I woke to the sounds of her crying...

Pray for us all...

My dearest Apollo, I’ll Be Burning Star IV
(Note: this line doesn't appear in the song, but is written in the booklet for the album)
