Lyrics Edit

Wait! There’s never been a mess like this, oh no more hands to hold
When the page turns tomorrow with the hurt to give up
Curse us as God has sold us, believe me hell has no room for your crime here
Beat me until the blood and the bone finds our end near

Bye, bye world, or will our hopes still hold on?
Boy, you’re never going to see, the things that will come of these (days)

Raise your hands high! Young brothers and sisters!
There’s a worlds worth of work, and a need for you
Oh, change is coming, feel these doors now closing in
Is there no world for tomorrow, if we wait for today?

So march to the drumming, show them you’re coming, you’ve been their play (toy)
Cut to the carving, bleed them 'till robbing, enough! they’ll take no more

You’ve been given all the power, boy, now go and make your move
Curse us, these gods aren’t faking, have mercy on the cowards, boys,
They’ll pray to have you lose
Help us, this world’s now breaking
So now they’ve noticed all you’ve given in sound, Let us in, let us in
Give me love over life the sweet soft of ground, Let us in, let us in now

Bye, bye world, or will our hopes still hold on?
Boy, you’re never going to see, the things that will come of these (days)

Raise your hands high! Young brothers and sisters!
There’s a worlds worth of work, and a need for you
Oh, change is coming, feel these doors now closing in
Is there no world for tomorrow, if we wait for today?

So march to the drumming, show them you’re coming, you’ve been their play (toy)
Cut to the carving, bleed them 'till robbing, enough! they’ll take no more

In the light we’ll sing, as all hurt must bring
In the falling cusp, of all broken things
In the coming dusk, you will call on us
And unite we must, I’m the Crowing!

You all think you’ve figured me out, do as I say
Your words mean nothing at all, so now I lay
I said "Come, momma! Come, momma! As I need"
I said "Come, momma! Come, momma! Watch it bleed"
What did I do to deserve all of this?
What did I do to deserve all of you?

Raise your hands high! Young brothers and sisters!
There’s a worlds worth of work, and a need for you
Oh, change is coming, feel these doors now closing in
Is there no world for tomorrow, if we wait for today?

Bye, bye world... or will our hopes still hold on?
