A machine in my ear
Screams at me
Telling me to turn away
To tear you away
And install a rough idea
Of what it means to be tied
To the tracks
Iron fists and tight lips
Over a sinking ship
And a melting sky

This is our last night as a whole
Lets watch it all unfold
All unfold
Our echoes will live on
Screaming S.O.S. to the world

Count the paces
And arrange the races
Arrange the races
Pushed to the side
Torn from the pages
Befriending the shade
Defending the name

This is our last night as a whole
Lets watch it all unfold
All unfold
Our echoes will live on
Screaming S.O.S. to the world

This is our last night as a whole
Lets watch it all unfold
All unfold
Our echoes will live on
Screaming S.O.S. to the world

    (a machine in my ear)
    Screams at me
    Telling me to turn away
    (to tear you away)
    And (install) a rough idea
    Of what it means to be tied
    To the tracks
    (iron fists and tight lips)
    (over)a sinking ship
    (and a melting) sky

    This is our last night as a whole
    Lets watch it all unfold
    (All unfold)
    Our echoes will live on
    Screaming S.O.S. to the world

    Count the paces
    And arrange the races
    (Arrange the races)
    (pushed to the side)
    Torn from the pages
    Befriending the (shade)
    Defending the name

    This is our last night as a whole
    Lets watch it all unfold
    (All unfold)
    Our echoes will live on
    Screaming S.O.S. to the world

    This is our last night as a whole
    Lets watch it all unfold
    (All unfold)
    Our echoes will live on
    Screaming S.O.S. to the world
