I don’t know what to say
The whole world’s burning today
Staring into the grave

Smoke into the sky
See the flames arise
Hell is here at last

Watching buildings collapse
Bridges buckle and snap
City swallowed by waves

Say another prayer
Hoping things will change
Here under the stars

But I don’t know why
Everyone you know will someday die

We all have to say goodbye
Let go of the love we share
Take all the smoke into my eyes

Climb into the hearse
To watch the ocean burn
Nothing left but dust

    General CommentI read a review of this album saying that, unlike other StD albums, this one doesn't end on a hopeful note. In fact, there's very little cheer on this album. Lots of death and dying and it's mostly Chris this time, whereas before his anger lashed outward a lot. This song is typical of the mood of the album. I feel that in an age where album art is mostly intended to catch the eye, the dark reds of "Sound the Alarm" are very indicitave of the music itself. Not black and empty, but red and panic-y. The world's not over, but it's rapidly burning and Chris is a nervous observer.
