"Alone" as written by Shaznay Lewis and Karl Clive Jr. Gordon....
I've been driving this road for the third straight day
These are thoughts from the past not to pick my brain
And now I feel like screaming to the world
Cause this highways going nowhere
And the lines have all been blurred
By the rain that's falling down in front of me
So I clear the windshield just to find
Another cross to mark the passing of a life
It's a crystal clear reminder
That all things come to an end
And I wonder when that end will come for me

[Chorus]
When the lights go down
And the clocks time out
And the bells just don't chime anymore
Is it tragedy that we can't see
What lies on the other side of every single smile

I've been asking myself for the third straight night
If there's truth in the writings that shape our lives
Now I feel like screaming to the world
Do these sermons run in circles
Are they spoken by design
To erase the thoughts of insecurity
And maybe were just never meant to find
The answer to the question we've all kept inside
Give me something to believe in
Give me anything at all
Cause right now this world just feels like its too small

[Chorus]

I won't cry
Not tonight
I won't back down without a fight
I won't cry
Not tonight
I won't back down

[Chorus]

When the lights go down
(I won't cry
Not tonight
I won't back down without a fight)
And the clocks time out
I won't back down without a fight
(I won't cry
Not tonight
I won't back down without a fight)
And the bells just don't chime anymore
It's a tragedy that we can't see
I won't back down without a fight

    General CommentLyrically, this is the best song off of Before The Blackout. It's a great reflection on religion, death, and wondering about the meaning of it all. An awesome song to end an awesome album.
