  • No one lives forever but you can't escape from life
    Every day could be your last so consider your demise
    Mine has drawn so near
    Stare into the eyes of the end
    Reaping now without fear
    The time that's left to spend
    The time that's left to spend
    The time that's left to

    Look up in the night
    See it ride across the sky
    Hanging there above
    Far away but so nearby
    I am the smoke on the wind
    Burning in your eyes
    Cast aside an empty shell
    But I will never die

    This world has grown too small, I can't stay much longer
    My body begins to fail as my spirit grows stronger
    It's time for me to go
    The circle closed as the snake eats its tail
    Lay my burden down
    Walking free beyond the veil
    The time that's left to spend
    The time that's left to

    Look up in the night
    See it ride across the sky
    Hanging there above
    Far away but so nearby
    I am the smoke on the wind
    Burning in your eyes
    Cast aside an empty shell
    But I will never die

    I will never die
    I will never die
    I will never die

    Look up in the night
    See it ride across the sky
    Hanging there above
    Far away but so nearby
    I am the smoke on the wind
    Burning in your eyes
    Cast aside an empty shell
    But I will never die

    I will never die
    Never die
    I will never die Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, JOSH WILBUR, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
