Aftermath

Album: For Your Entertainment (2009)
  • Have you lost your way?
    Livin' in the shadow of the messes that you made
    And so it goes
    Everything inside your circle starts to overflow

    Take a step before you leap
    Into the colors that you seek
    You give back what you give away
    So don't look back on yesterday

    Wanna scream out, no more hiding
    Don't be afraid of what's inside
    Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
    In the aftermath

    Anytime anybody pulls you down
    Anytime anybody says you're not allowed
    Just remember you are not alone
    In the aftermath

    You feel the weight
    Of lies and contradictions that you live with every day
    It's not too late
    Think of what could be if you rewrite the role you play

    Take a step before you leap
    Into the colors that you seek
    You give back what you give away
    So don't look back on yesterday

    Wanna scream out, no more hiding
    Don't be afraid of what's inside
    Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
    In the aftermath

    Anytime anybody pulls you down
    Anytime anybody says you're not allowed
    Just remember you are not alone
    In the aftermath
    In the aftermath

    Before you break you have to change your own mind
    Take a trip and fall into the pit
    Tell a stranger that they're beautiful

    So all you feel is love, love
    All you feel is love, love

    Wanna scream out, no more hiding
    Don't be afraid of what's inside
    Wanna tell you, you'll be alright
    In the aftermath

    Wanna scream out
    No more hiding
    Don't be afraid of what's inside
    Gonna tell ya you'll be alright
    In the Aftermath

    Anytime anybody pulls you down
    Anytime anybody says you're not allowed
    Just remember you are not alone
    In the aftermath

    In the aftermath
    (Gonna tell ya you'll be alright)
    In the aftermath
    In the aftermath
    Just remember you are not alone
