21:13 is the twelfth song and twenty-third track on the 2003 album In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3. It is preceded by eleven tracks of silence, varying in length, separating it from the previous song on the album, The Light & the Glass. This, along with not being noted on the album's tracklisting, makes it a secret track.

This song reprises two other tracks in The Amory Wars, namely Time Consumer and IRO-bot, both from the previous album The Second Stage Turbine Blade.

It is currently the longest-running Coheed and Cambria song.

There have been speculations that 21:13 has some sort of ties to Rush's masterpiece "2112", however, claims that 2112 had influence have been largely denied.

Lyrics Edit

In our sleep, there’s more to this nightmare
Will she beg for your mercy?
Slowly but sure, I’m hoping what comes in the absence of love
At night, she’ll kick and she’ll fight, should they fill in his sight
At night, I’ll worry from all, the end of us all

Please mom, they’re coming for me
Please mom, run lock your door, they’re coming for me

And the clock reads 21:13
All work will stop
And the ground will relieve

Please mom, they’re coming for me
Please mom, run lock your door, they’re coming for...

When I fall asleep
Your face is all I see
Dear momma I love
I fall asleep
Your face is all I dream
Dear momma I love

In your frame you’ll be this well
In the face you miss the most
You’ll see them soon... stop
I bid you fair warning
Stay up ’till you
When the memories occur
Of a life you haven’t lived
Stay still, you will
And I’ve got a secret to hide
And I’ve got a secret to hide

In the words
Of father to son
Thy Kingdom Come

Please mom, they’re coming for me
Please mom, run lock your door, they’re coming for

When I fall asleep
Your face is all I see
Dear momma I love
I fall asleep
Your face is all I dream
Dear momma I love

When I fall asleep...
When I fall asleep...

Those days we lost our dignity
The eager dare to stand
The ride home through victory
On the innocent they tread

But IRO-bot will never die
IRO-bot will never die
But IRO-bot will never die
But IRO-bot will never die
