Something woke me
Woke me up and told me
I'm not half alive
I'm joking
Thought I'd hold on
I'm just barely

Turned my wishes into fears
And my smiles into tears
But it's over
It's over

Rise from the ruins
I'll never die
I'll wake up
Feeling fine as ever
I think I should live forever

Cause I live hopeless
Like I was the time spent
Feeling worthless
Will kill you
It kills you

Let's find strength
To go our own way
Don't live another day
Drowning in others

Jealousy
Don't bother me
I'm not listening
I'm wasting so much time
I'll leave you far behind

Turned my wishes into fears
And my smiles into tears
But it's over
It's over

Rise from the ruins
I'll never die
I'll wake up feeling fine
As ever
I think I should live forever

Cause I live hopeless
Like I was the time spent
Feeling worthless
Will kill you
It kills you

Your caustic words
Will never kill me
You'll never be
The last one to fall
It's not that I hate you
I'm simply above this
And I just want the truth

Rise from the ruins
I'll never die
I'll wake up feeling fine
As ever
I think I could live forever

Cause I live hopeless
Like I was the time spent
Feeling worthless
Will kill you
It kills you

Rise from the ruins
I'll never die
I'll wake up feeling fine
As ever
I think I should live forever
Live forever

    General Commentyou got some of the lyrics wrong

    in the first verse were it say in choking the lyrics are "im joking"

    in the chorus you put fly from the ruins and the lyrics are "rise from the ruins"
