OH, everything's on fire Watch as they go And they Pray And the snow As they hope that it all gets better This is life You know just as I That it can't be measured Oh so sad a light This is the way Take it, oh take it, oh take it from me. It's better if you try, than let it go don't let it be your soul Oh you'd believe Me If I told you a lie Oh that's the way, take it from my eyes Oh that's the light, Take it with me oh Ways I live. It's broken my mind Oh it is okay. When you leave I can see That your like The leaves, when they sway in the wind And the world Is a changing maelstrom of hailstorm and You'll see everything float away It's so sad a light This is the way Take it oh take it oh take it from me There was nothing you could ever do To change my mind Break the world I don't mind Oh they'd believe Me If I told them I'd Died Oh that's the way, take it from my eyes Oh that's the light, Take it with me oh Ways I live, It's broken my mind

What do they say In the dark abyss When they know they missed the mark. Losing all your points Breaking even with Oh you're losing life to the end And there was just nothing you Could do to change their minds Oh they are out of line for you And when we let this take our soul by storm It's only love, It's love, you're wishing for. 2x (oh's) Wait, for the moment to change your life For everyone's open eyes To save your soul, Oh this is the only way to live It's open mind so cold Oh so cold, Just like the world And it's all be done before It's all been loved before. And when we let this take our soul by storm It's only love, It's love, you're wishing for 2x (oh's) It's only love, It's love you're wishing for. (oh's)

Madness 03:42
I could say I seen the world I could say I seen the love oh I could say I seen the truth. Oh but I know I never see nothing nowhere At least nothing you say I've seen aaah Give me my madness back I can see in pitch black This clarity's damned in fact Take me back Hide my stars away from me Wait, for the day to come Lose yourself and follow us You'll find your love Oh, I can't believe that we are the same And we are the ones That let them change Give Me my madness back I can see in pitch black This clarity's damned in fact Take me back Hide my stars away from me Wait I'm falling faster It's not my fault Take me back Hide my stars away from me (oh's) Hide my stars from me

Lament 07:11
It pays to be the worst And judging by your thirst You'll do anything to be first to own this guile Oh your worthless smiles Haunting me for miles, oh Symmetry aside Your convoluted mime Of human emotion falls Short of an ocean falls You're half the reason half of us have had to die A disjointed escape plan Loves cold chains change your breathing Use your last strength to say good bye, oh Illusions growing mold A past that can't be told Of secretes of code, oh You make me feeble minded Casting me with doubt Illustrate my pain Take away my vain And make me blind I am Broken by this slight Yet amorous at times A disjointed escape plan Loves cold chains change your breathing Use your last strength to say good bye, oh Oh, oh, oh. Use your last strength to say good bye, oh Oh Please let, Oh Please let. Let me break your heart. 7x
