S.C.A.V.A.

Album: American Tragedy (2011)
  • When the end is getting closer
    And the earth has burned the sky
    Now repent 'cause it's all over
    Just let me die

    Here's the massacre
    A mausoleum fit for me
    Lived a hundred years,
    A hundred years I didn't see
    Gave all my hope away
    Isn't any left for me?
    Bombs are splitting atoms
    What can the future bring?
    We can fill a million choirs
    And wait till children sing
    We can walk a million miles
    And end up in the sea
    And our lungs just keep filling
    And lying when we breathe
    The world's filled with liars
    Liars like me
    And I look at my child
    It's finite, this feeling
    Eyes blue like the sky
    I see all of this meaning
    I reach up to God and ask if I'm dreaming
    I'm so sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
    And darling, a kiss
    Kiss me I'm leaving

    When the end is getting closer
    And the earth has burned the sky
    Now repent 'cause it's all over
    Just let me die

    As my body lies here broken
    And I'm carried to the light
    Now my heart is finally open
    So just let me die

    When the end is getting closer
    And the earth has burned the sky
    Now repent 'cause it's all over
    Just let me die

    Here's the massacre
    A mausoleum fit for me
    Lived a hundred years,
    A hundred years I didn't see
    Gave all my hope away
    Isn't any left for me?
    Bombs are splitting atoms
    What can the future bring?
    We can fill a million choirs
    And wait till children sing
    We can walk a million miles
    And end up in the sea
    And our lungs just keep filling
    And lying when we breathe
    The world's filled with liars
    Liars like me
    And I look at my child
    It's finite, this feeling
    Eyes blue like the sky
    I see all of this meaning
    I reach up to God and ask if I'm dreaming
    I'm so sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
    And darling, a kiss
    Kiss me I'm leaving

    When the end is getting closer
    And the earth has burned the sky
    Now repent 'cause it's all over
    Just let me die

    As my body lies here broken
    And I'm carried to the light
    Now my heart is finally open
    Just let me die Writer/s: JOREL DECKER, DANIEL MURILLO, GEORGE ARTHUR RAGAN, JORDON KRISTOPHER TERRELL, DYLAN PETER ALVAREZ, MATTHEW BUSEK, GRIFFIN BOICE
