  • As I stare into these ruins made by man
    I tremble as I realize it's the end
    More and more I wonder what we could have done
    But instead we wage a war that can't be won
    Yeah instead we wage a war that can't be won

    I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
    Memories of a broken heart
    Now I'm alone in the dark.

    I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
    Find your light in a new dawn
    But there's no way to do this on our own

    I search for solace in this waste
    That I once called home
    But my attempts of piecing life together leaves me alone
    I can't repair what's been done
    When the sky is as black as the ground that I walk on

    But I can't give up on this
    I have to wonder what we could have done
    I have to wonder
    But instead we wage a war that can't be won
    But instead we wage a war that can't be won

    I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
    Memories of a broken heart
    Now I'm alone in the dark.

    I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
    Find your light in a new dawn
    But there's no way to do this on our own.

    You think that this is the end?
    You're wrong
    You think that this is the end?
    You think that this is the end?
    You're wrong
    You think that this is the end?
    You're wrong
    You think that this is the end?
    You're wrong
    This is the start of a new generation

    I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
    Memories of a broken heart
    Now I'm alone in the dark

    I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
    Find your light in a new dawn
    But there's no way to do this on our own. Writer/s: BRENDAN KYLE BARONE
