Ride the apocalypse
Coming through the city side
Fallen angel no need to hide
All bodies collide and fate decides
Where vengance hits
Where our love will fit
I can't find your face
I can't see a trace
In a world coming to a close
I'm so damned I can't win
With my heart in my hands again
Take your hurt
A muse of sin
With my heart in my hands again

And this is where it began
Shot through a shattered lens
And there is virtue in lonliness
In vacant lots and florescent malls
In one room coffins and crowded halls
There is nothing to be done
We have lost all control
I walk in the shadows of your tortured realm

I'm so damned
I can't win
With my heart in my hands again
Take your hurt
A muse of sin
Passing glance forgotten
Reason to doubt
So pry your eyes
From a film that never ends
I'm so damned
I can't win
With my heart in my hands again

Ride the apocalypse
Coming through the city side
There is nowhere to hide
Ride the apocalypse
Fallen angel no need to hide

    General Comment No comments? OK, I'll give it a shot. Here goes:
    This song rules.
    Original, huh? Seriously though, great song. Probably the best on Source Tags & Codes. Right up there with Another Morning Stoner.

    General CommentI think the apocalyptic mentions are metaphors for heart break...and how when your heart is broken, it seems like the world is coming to and end or might as well do.

    But it could be taken as a reflection on society too.

    General CommentDoes anybody else think the vocals sound like "Under the Milky Way Tonight" in parts of this song?

    General CommentI take it as a sarcastic sort of jab at emo, someone being overwhelmed so by their emotions that it ruins them.

    General CommentI believe the great beauty of any art (e.g. Music) is that it is open to countless interpretations. Don't ever think that you are "wrong" for mentioning how you see something, because it is like Dreams, they are your own. You can always share them, just don't push it on other people if they don't want it.

    (What is the difference between Life & Dream?)
