  • Lyrics
  • When the world has turned
    Paralyzed and wrong
    Cold blooded claws
    Never offered anything at all
    Past the point of love
    Shattered and untied
    Waiting to pick up the pieces
    That make it all alright

    But pieces of what
    Pieces of what
    Pieces of what
    Doesn't matter any more

    Moonlight on my floor
    Shining through the roof
    They got the city surrounded
    As if I needed proof
    I forgot my fear
    Feelings on the rise
    Burying all of the pieces
    Falling from the sky

    But pieces of what
    Pieces of what
    Pieces of what
    We used to call home
    Pieces of what
    We used to call home

    When I drank your tea
    And shallow water still
    At the Belgian gates
    I waited for my mealWriter/s: ANDREW WELLS VANWYNGARDEN, BENJAMIN NICHOLAS HUNER GOLDWASSER

  • Eric from Manhattan, NySong about the Mayan prophecy enough said, also 4th Dimensional Transition is about the same thing and a better song than this. I think this song could also be about 9/11 as well.
