Eyes shining bright with unspilt tears
Thinking about all these wasted years
Everything worth living for is gone
And brother I find it hard to keep fighting on

Falling down towards the abyss - the abyss
The reaper embraces me with his kiss
It makes me want to refuse to care - refuse to care
To watch this all unfold, too much to bear

If this is the way it ends, if this is the way my race ends
If this is the way it ends... I can't bear to witness
If this is the way it ends, if this is the way my race ends
If this is the way it ends... I can't bear to witness

Disease encroaching on all I hold dear
Somehow I gotta get my soul outta here
Heart of agony, faint burning hope
I'm finding it hard to try to cope

Because the liars own the world with conquering poise - with conquering poise
In a wasteland of meaningless noise
We don't stand a chance with dormant pride - with dormant pride
The heroes of our race have already died

If this is the way it ends, if this is the way my race ends
If this is the way it ends... I can't bear to witness
If this is the way it ends, if this is the way my race ends
If this is the way it ends... I can't bear to witness

To imagine it has all come down to this;
Apathy and suicidal bliss
It's all over except for the cryin'
With a whimper instead of the roar of a lion

The greatest race to ever walk the earth - walk the earth
Dying a slow death with insane an mirth
The tomb has been prepared, our race betrayed - our race betrayed
White man fight the plight towards the grave

If this is the way it ends, if this is the way my race ends
If this is the way it ends... I can't bear to witness
If this is the way it ends, if this is the way my race ends
If this is the way it ends... I can't bear to witness

Don't let it end this way
Don't let it end this way
Don't let it end this way, I can't bear to witness...
