all aboard the conductor screamed
he knew he was the only one who could save their dreams
he had to pick who lived and died solely by occupation
he played god in all their lives
he was the reason why a million people had to die on that day
and as he stared into all their faces
he heard the screams of those trying to be saved
he played god in all their lives that day
nothing's as scary as the earth crumbling
nothing could numb the pain of knowing tomorrow will never be
he lit up a cigarette in hopes to calm his nerves
and as the smoke filled his lungs
he prayed to an unmerciful lord
excuse me sir i forgot your name
i'm just another nameless face that won't see another day
excuse me sir i'm sorry that my worst nightmares are my only grasp on sanity
i wish i could save this world from dying
but now it's my turn to become another piece of matter floating endlessly through the abyss above
no love can save me
time stopped - it went all black
all the memories that i've had from my past escaped through my brain
the silence deafening could drive one insane
all that i've worked for and all the friends that i've made are just as useless as hoping a god might come save
no one can blame faith for trying to ease the pain
but when the world ends there will just be nothing

    General CommentTheir style definitely reminds me of The Hope Conspiracy, but god damn I love this band.
    And this is my "tied-for favorite" song. "Wasted" is my other fav.
