A flame was planted deep inside my hand
It must have been some time ago
Cause for as long as I remember, it's grown and grown

Well, I have practiced with finesse
And I have sharpened my technique
Now here I sit with this git-tube, learn anything with ease

You should have listened to what was said
Before all this came to an end
Your stubborn ears I do forgive

So long
Some of you had to stay alive
Some of you had to stay alive
Some of you had to stay alive
At least you've already got what you're missing...

I've got some bad news for some of you
Your will is not strength; it's the weakest of things
And without purpose we're dead
Without prayer we're nothing

It's just a tad late for some of you
As you frantically hunt for what's missing
Well, it's locked in your heart
(You've got the key)

We were given purpose when we were born
If only we had learned
The meaning of the word

So long
Some of you had to stay alive
Some of you had to stay alive
Some of you had to stay alive
At least you've already got what you're missing...
At least you've already got what you're missing...

(You had a chance to be saved, but you threw it away) x4

Now that a lot is gone, you're left with nothing
I've been ???, at least you're trying
At least ???, you are trembling
After all, I... I've grown sick
Of a willingness to pretend
So I'll burn with conviction
Every day

So long
Some of you had to stay alive
Some of you had to stay alive
Some of you had to stay alive
At least you've already got what you're missing...
