  • Crying out.
    Now you can't escape you are buried in doubt
    And it pulls you down
    Now you're in too deep you may never get out
    Such an awful place

    Tear it down
    It's almost too late is the end coming now
    As you scream out loud
    You sever the peace til your truth has been found

    Is there nothing left to follow?
    Is there nothing left to steal?
    Crying out for something more than I've been shown
    Knowing none of this is real

    Don't close your eyes
    Something beautiful is still alive
    Don't close your eyes
    Never turn away and let it die

    I cannot seem to find the answers
    Every truth has slipped away
    All that riddles me will never cease to be
    Still I search this world in vain

    Don't close your eyes
    Something beautiful is still alive
    Don't close your eyes
    Never turn away and let it die

    Cry out to save tomorrow
    It's not too late
    Or your heavy heart will follow
    You to the grave

    This is not the end. This is not the end

    Don't close your eyes
    Something beautiful is still alive
    Don't close your eyes
    Never turn away and let it die

    We can't hesitate, hope is not too late
    For the time has come, what have we become?
    Nothing left to do but deny the truth Writer/s: BRIAN MARSHAL, MARK TREMONTI, MYLES KENNEDY, SCOTT PHILLIPS
