I swear I saw the sun black out that day
Thinking to myself there'd be no end to the pain
And I was so much like you, filled with sorrow, filled with hate
Wishing somehow I could find the strength to push down on the blade


Now with your body scream it out, grab my hand
You don't have to cry alone, 'cause someone out there understands
If you feel like falling down from forces all around
If you feel like there's no way out play this song and sing it loud
(…and say)

May we all go marching on
May we all go marching on
And I'll keep on fighting
For people just like us


I spilled no blood but carry on with the stain everyday
I want you to know you're my saving grace
(yes) You my friend, reason to live, we are one in the same


Now with your body scream it out, grab my hand
You don't have to cry alone, 'cause someone out there understands
If you feel like falling down from forces all around
If you feel like there's no way out play this song and sing it loud
(…and say)


I cringe at the things that our minds think
All the harsh lies that we take out on ourselves
When people tell you your selfish
Just don't believe it, they cannot see it


And though we never, may ever get to meet
If you need someone to live for, live for me
And when you feel like giving up
Know that you have my love
And that's worth everything
'Cause you're worth everything

    General CommentI'm pretty much a diehard Coheed & Cambria fan, but for the past couple months, I've been addicted to Art of Chaos and this is DEFINITELY my favorite of their songs.
    It's just one of those songs that makes me happy, and I'm not totally sure why, and that's why I dig it so much.
