"The End Complete IV: The Road and the Damned" as written by and Claudio/stever Sanchez....
I believe in the world right in front of me
but now, along these empty streets
where this curse holds these memories of a man
you know he's lost

No time to think about it. No room to breathe

If I had a way back, I'd ride through the dark and the door
(but please don't wait for me)
because the man you love don't live anymore
I can't go home again

Tonight you'll sleep
You'll feel what might become of me, my dear
Within these end old days where this longing turns
this man to pray and a love begins to die

No time to live in the deep, girl
I'm worth the second chance (What have I done?!)
No time to think about it, no room to breathe!

If I had a way back, I'd ride through the dark and the door
(but please don't wait)
because the man you love don't live anymore
I can't go home again

I believed in the world, once in front of me, well, now that's gone

If I had the way back, I'd ride through the dark and the door
(but please don't wait for me)
because the man you love don't live anymore

I can't go home again

Bye, goodbye. Bye, my dear

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the album. The instrumentation and vocalization really express Claudio's pain at this point in the story excellently.

    In Claudio's interview with Garrett Press he said that the Keywork is already destroyed, and Claudio the character is reflecting on some of his past loves and his regrets of never being able to tie up loose ends with those people. The life he had been given was a very sad life, and this song really makes the listener feel for him.

    General CommentThe Road and the Damned

    I believe
    in the world right in front of me
    but now
    along these empty streets
    where this curse holds these memories
    of a man, you know he's lost.

    No time to think about it,
    no room to breathe.

    If i had a way back, i'd ride
    through the dark and the door
    (but please don't wait for me)
    because the man you love don't live anymore.
    I can't go home again.

    Tonight you'll sleep
    you'll feel what might become of me, my dear.
    Within these end old days
    Where this longing turns this man to pray
    and a love begins to die.

    No time to live in the deep
    Girl I'm worth the second chance
    (what have I done?!)
    No time to think about it,
    no room to breathe!

    If I had a way back, I'd ride
    through the dark and the door
    (but please don't wait)
    because the man you love don't live anymore.
    I can't go home again.

    I believed
    in the world, once in front of me
    well now that's gone.

    If I had the way back, I'd ride
    through the dark and the door
    (but please don't wait for me)
    because the man you love don't live anymore

    I can't go home again.

    Bye, goodbye.
    Bye, my dear.

    General Commentokay, i just wanted to point this out to see if anyone else noticed it.
    At about 3:20 into the song, the buildup thing, sounds sooo much like "In The Flesh" from Pink Floyd's The Wall, like notes and everything.
    is that just me?

    General Commentok, so this is Claudio. And he is blowing up Heaven's Fence (I believed in the world once in front of me. Well, now that's gone). He is saying that if he could go home to Newo he would, but there is no way. He is dying with Heaven's Gate.

    General CommentForgot to mention that the world is already ending, the planets are colliding together at this point. According to that interview I mentioned before, Claudio only has seconds to live by the end of this song. It's a sad song.
