Intro

[No lyrics]

. . .


declare this an emergency
come on and spread a sense of urgency
and pull us through
and pull us through

and this is the end
this is the end
of the world

and it's time we saw a miracle
come on, it's time for something biblical
to pull us through
and pull us through

and this is the end
this is the end
of the world

proclaim enternal victory
come on and change the cause of history
and pull us through
and pull us through

and this is the end
this is the end
of the world

. . .


I think I'm drowning
asphyxiating
I wanna break the spell
that you've created

you're something beautiful
a contradiction
I wanna play the game
I want the friction

you will be
the death of me
yeah, you will be
the death of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
and our time is running out
you can't push it underground
we can't stop it screaming out

I wanted freedom
but I'm restricted
I tried to give you up
but I'm addicted

now that you know I'm trapped
sense of elation
you'll never dream of breaking this fixation
you will squeeze the life out of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
and our time is running out
you can't push it underground
we can't stop it screaming out
how did it come to this

you will suck the life out of me

bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

our time is running out
and our time is running out
you can't push it underground
we can't stop it screaming out

how did it come to this

. . .


lips are turning blue
a kiss that can't renew
I only dream of you
my beautiful

tiptoe to your moon/room (?)
a starlight in the gloom
I only dream of you
and you never knew

sing for absolution
I will be singing
falling from your grace

there's nowhere left to hide
in no one to confide
the truth runs deep inside
and will never die

lips are turning blue
a kiss that can't renew
I only dream of you
my beautiful

sing for absolution
I will be singing
falling from your grace

sing for absolution
I will be singing
falling from your grace

I won't remain unrectified
and our souls won't be absolved

. . .


I won't stand in your way
let your hatred grow
and she'll scream
and she'll shout
and she'll pray
and she had a name
yeah she had a name

and I won't hold you back
let your anger rise
and we'll fly
and we'll fall
and we'll burn
no one will recall
no one will recall

this is the last time I'll abandon you
and this is the last time I'll forget you
I wish I could

look to the stars
let hope burn in your eyes
and we'll love
and we'll hope
and we'll die
all to no avail
all to no avail

this is the last time I'll abandon you
and this is the last time I'll forget you
I wish I could

this is the last time I'll abandon you
and this is the last time I'll forget you
I wish I could
I wish I could

. . .


I can't remember when it was good
moments of happiness in bloom
maybe I just misunderstood
all of the love we left behind
watching our flash backs intertwine
memories I will never find
inspite of whatever you become
forget that reckless thing turned on
I think our lives have just begun
I think our lives have just begun

and I'll feel my world crumbling down
feel my life crumbling now
feel my soul crumbling away
falling away
falling away with you

staying awake to chase a dream
tasting the air you're breathing in
I hope I won't forgot a thing
I wish to hold you close and pray
watching our fantasies decay
nothing will ever stay the same
and all of the love we threw away
and all of the hopes we've cherished fade
making the same mistakes again
making the same mistakes again

and I'll feel my world crumbling down
feel my life crumbling now
feel my soul crumbling away
and falling away
falling away with you

all of the love we left behind
watching our flash backs intertwine
memories I will never find
memories I will never find

. . .

Interlude

[No lyrics]

. . .


it's bugging me
calling me
and twisting me around

yeah I'm endlessly
caving in
and turning inside out

because I want it now
I want it now
give me your heart and your soul
and I'm breaking out
I'm breaking out
that's when she'll lose control

yeah it's hurting me
morphing me
and forcing me to strive

to be endlessly
caving in
and dreaming of my love

because I want it now
I want it now
give me your heart and your soul
I'm not breaking down
I'm breaking out
that's when she'll lose control

and I want you now
I want you now
I feel my heart implode
and I'm breaking out
escaping now
feeling my faith grow old

. . .


don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this love's too good last
and I'm too old train, yeah

don't grow up too fast
and don't embrace the past
this life's too good to last
and I'm too young to care

don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this life could be the last
and we're too young to see

. . .


change,
everything you are
and everything you were
your number has been called
fights, battles have begun
revenge will surely come
your hard times are ahead

best,
you've got to be the best
you've got to change the world
and you use this chance to be heard
your time is now

change,
everything you are
and everything you were
your number has been called
fights and battles have begun
revenge will surely come
your hard times are ahead

best,
you've got to be the best
you've got to change the world
and you use this chance to be heard
your time is now

don't,
let yourself down
don't let yourself go
your last chance has arrived

best,
you've got to be the best
you've got to change the world
and you use this chance to be heard
your time is now

. . .



Take,
Take all you need
And I'll compensate your greed
With broken hearts

Sell,
And I'll sell your memories
For fifteen pounds per year
But just the good days

Say,
It'll make you insane
And it's bending the truth
You're to blame
For all the life that you're losing
You watch this space
But I'm going all the way
And be my slave to the grave
I'm a priest god never paid

Hope,
And I hope you've seen the light
'cause no-one really cares
They're just pretending

Sell,
And I'll sell your memories
For fifteen pounds per year
But you can keep the bad days

Say,
It'll make you insane
And I'm bending the truth
You're to blame
For all the life that you're losing
You watch this space
But I'm going all the way
And be my slave to the grave
I'm a priest god never paid

Say,
It'll make you insane
And I'm bending the truth
You're to blame
For all the life that you're losing
You watch this space
And I'm going all the way
And be my slave to the grave
I'm a priest god never paid

. . .



You're so happy now
Burning a candle at both ends
Your self-loving soothes
And softens the blows you've invented

Breathe in deep, and cleanse away our sins
And we'll pray that there's no God
To punish us and make a fuss

Crack's healing up
Future soul forgive this mess
You wait twenty years
And wind up alone, demented

Breathe in deep, and cleanse away our sins
And we'll pray that there's no God
To punish us and make a fuss

. . .


there's a part in me you'll never know
the only thing I'll never show

hopelessly I'll love you endlessly
hopelessly I'll give you everything
but I won't give you up
I won't let you down
and I won't leave you falling
If the moment ever comes

It's plain to see it's trying to speak
cherished dreams forever asleep
hopelessly I'll love you endlessly
hopelessly I'll give you everything
but I won't give you up
I won't let you down
and I won't leave you falling
if the moment ever comes

hopelessly I'll love you endlessly
hopelessly I'll give you everything
but I won't give you up
I won't let you down
and I won't leave you falling
but the moment never comes

. . .



Eerie whispers
Trapped beneath my pillow
You won't let me see
Your memories

And I know you're in this room
I'm sure I heard you sigh
Floating in between
Where our worlds collide

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

Yeah yeah yeah ....

And I know the moment's near
And there's nothing we can do
Look through a faithless eye
Are you afraid to die?

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

Yeah yeah yeah ....

It scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see
And it scares the hell out of me
And the end is all I can see

Yeah yeah yeah ....

. . .


repress and restrain
still the pressure and the pain
wash the blood off your hands
this time she won't understand

change in the air
and they'll hide everywhere
and no one knows who's in control

you're working so hard
and you're never in charge
your death creates success
and you'll build and suppress

change in the air
and they'll hide everywhere
and no one knows who's in control

change in the air
and they'll hide everywhere
and no one knows who's in control
