The wind howls louder still Reaching for the empty heart Of someone who never got their fill Of a life that has yet to start All of those hopeful flames Dancing in such a cold, dark room Ever so reluctant to respond to the change We forget that we aren’t the same Despite our matching tombs
So open your lungs And breathe in All these shards of shattered glass Left in the future From the pieces of our broken past Breath out All these shards of shattered glass When we all stand alone Who will be left to last?
Soak in the left over memories And face the mirror See the man you built Out of the anger of all that you couldn’t achieve Did you hear that it all comes crashing down? Like the missed notes Of your favorite love song It’s going to come back around – Despite the coughing and blood in your breath We know the lost will eventually be found
So open your lungs And breath in that shattered glass No falling water can cleanse What moves so fast Breath out all that shattered glass The pain will lose its edge Though the scars always last And while you lie sleeping And I’m lost in my head I’ll gather up all that shattered glass Left behind on all those roads I’ve yet to tread
I want to know Why the light around us always seems fleeting With every second I stand alone with you I just want to see Why there’s nothing here for me And all that’s left is all I know Two feet standing on the ground, and the pitter patter Of the rain’s melodic fall Drown me out Pull me in The dark skies are but the first signal of what’s just about to begin
Will I understand? Come to terms with the situation here at hand? These gray clouds and duller words The crack of thunder is the only thing I ever heard The horizon stays empty As all the lights fade down Left in the flood is all that we lost And that we found Look up to them – Take it all in Feel the trembling of the world Underneath your frightful skin Admit that the end of the world Isn’t the end of sin Crash and fall Flash of the lightning’s crawl The cooing of the wind turns to harsh screams And all that’s left Is what I refused to believe
A battle amongst the heavens The black and gray versus the brightest blue And the skies begin to dry And nothing reigns supreme As eternity looms nigh And I cannot fathom the forever standing in front of me As the trumpets start to blare And when the people look above You can see the light in the air The skies ripple open and the seraphim ride through Yet the end of all things Is just something else to do And they call to the masses All that was and all that will ever be Those who stood firm in faith And those who could never believe Yet I look above, alone as I was, and I know – There will be nothing more for me
