Not Ready to Die

Album: The Best Of 2005-2013 (2011)
Charted: 70
  • Gone cast away in time
    Evil yours, now evil mine
    So I robbed you blind, the voices
    In my head could just a less than
    Peaceful side

    The endless possibilities
    Controlling every fight

    You can't break me, crushed the
    Fears of yesterday
    You can't change me, barriers our trust will fade

    I've stood in the dark, been
    Waiting all this time
    While we damn the dead I'm
    Trying to survive, I'm not ready to die

    Damned, watch the masses fall
    Burn it down, control 'em all
    Make me crawl, to daddy's little
    Girl to read the writings on the wall

    While cast into the nothingness
    The final curtain call

    You can't break me, crushed the
    Fears of yesterday
    You can't change me, barriers our trust will fade.
    I've stood in the dark, been waiting all this time
    While we damn the dead I'm
    Trying to survive, I'm not ready to die

    Through the madness we find
    Loyalty is no match for power
    Save your body or lie, left to rot in
    Your darkest hour
    Friends won't help you now as long as your mine

    You can't break me, crushed the
    Fears of yesterday
    You can't change me, barriers our trust will fade.

    I've stood in the dark, been
    Waiting all this time
    While we damn the dead I'm
    Trying to survive

    And I'll control the world one
    Person at a time
    As I damn the dead I'm trying to
    Survive, I'm not ready to die

    Oh!

    I'm not ready to die
    I'm not ready to die
    I'm not ready to die
    I'm not ready to die Writer/s: BRIAN HANER, JONATHAN SEWARD, MATTHEW SANDERS, ZACHARY BAKER
