  • Nothing is what it seems.
    In the hanging garden, nothing is what it seems.
    And no one is pardoned for the sins they receive.
    And if you take my hand from that very lost place,
    I will lead you through darkness
    to that very safe space.

    WISHING, YOU WERE HERE.
    WISHING, YOU WERE HERE.
    I'M WISHING YOU WERE HERE,
    YOU WERE HERE RIGHT NOW!

    We're all filled with dread.
    When the universe crumbles
    and we're all filled with dread.
    As humanity stumbles
    and we're all left for dead.
    Your god does not dwell here
    so break all your mirrors.
    We will ride to tomorrow and save all your fears.

    WISHING, YOU WERE HERE.
    WISHING, YOU WERE HERE.
    I'M WISHING YOU WERE HERE,
    YOU WERE HERE RIGHT NOW!

    In the hanging garden where the dead flowers bloom.
    It's the root of all evil, filled with death rot and gloom
    and if you take my hand from that very lost place.
    I will lead you through darkness to that very safe space.

    WISHING, YOU WERE HERE.
    WISHING, YOU WERE HERE.
    I'M WISHING YOU WERE HERE,
    YOU WERE HERE RIGHT NOW!
    I'M WISHING YOU WERE HERE,
    YOU WERE HERE RIGHT NOW!
    WITH ME! Writer/s: Austin D'ammond, Dez Fafara, Mike Spreitzer, Neal Tielmann

  • Jyin475 from TexasAgreed Nik3 i honestly thought it was soilwork with DevilDriver I really do get a soilwork kind of feeling in the song.
  • Nlk3I was curious if it was his own clean vocals or a featured artist. Like Randy Blythe (though 7 years earlier on Lamb of God's "Resolution"), Dez isn't known for doing clean vocals and did them well for what his style is.
