  • Tearing me apart
    With words you wouldn't say
    Suddenly tomorrow's
    Moment washed away
    'Cause I don't have a reason
    And you don't have the time
    We both keep on waiting
    For something we won't find

    The light on the horizon
    Was brighter yesterday
    Shadows floating over
    Skies begin to fade
    You said it was forever
    But then it slipped away
    Standing at the end of
    The final masquerade

    All I ever wanted
    Secrets that you keep
    All you ever wanted
    The truth I couldn't speak
    'Cause I can't see forgiveness
    And you can't see the crime
    And we both keep on waiting
    For what we left behind

    The light on the horizon
    Was brighter yesterday
    Shadows floating over
    Skies begin to fade
    You said it was forever
    But then it slipped away
    Standing at the end of
    The final masquerade

    Final masquerade
    Standing at the end of the final masquerade

    The light on the horizon
    Was brighter yesterday
    Shadows floating over
    Skies begin to fade
    You said it was forever
    But then it slipped away
    Standing at the end of
    The final masquerade
    Standing at the end of
    The final masquerade
    Standing at the end of
    The final masquerade Writer/s: BRAD DELSON, CHESTER CHARLES BENNINGTON, DAVE FARRELL, EMILE HAYNIE, JOSEPH HAHN, MIKE SHINODA, ROBERT G. BOURDON
