I'm falling down again, I'll never understand. How the world will die again, I can't carry you my friend. A change is just as good, it puts us where we should. You're hanging next to me, high in the killing tree. How many times you said, the words burn inside my head. I'll never realize that we're just paralyzed. And though the time has end, I'll never see your face again. We've died a thousand times before, washed upon the shore. I’ve waited so long just to tell the whole world. My one final moment's to look at the earth. I've seen the last days, I can breath the cold air. As long as I live, you'll have all of your fears. The Sun is a fire and the Moon is our death. The ocean is waiting for God's final breath. I am your messiah, I am your dead God. This world's a lie, all the people are lost. You're nothing to me, and you're like a dead Sun. You're swimming in blackness a song left unsung. The road's just a scar left on my open wounds. The bones have been cracking they’ll die sometime soon. Your birth is your death and you'll crawl to your grave. I'll give you one promise on your final day. You'll never find love yeah you'll never be free. The prayers in the world will never save me.
