The Last Firstborn Lyrics - Celldweller

Review The Song (3)



Oh man, I can't believe
That you did what they said
You did and to this day
I've still gotta say that in
My mind I question it
I wish I knew what you had
Meant before you went
And left me wondering to
Just an echo of your voice

Listen...
Listen…
Listen…
Listen...

Now I wait to take my turn to bleed
Like a kid playing with a razorblade
And wonder if I have the balls at all
sponsored links
Or am I gonna be afraid
Where are you?
What do you think?
'Cause I'm not sure when
Knocking at death's door
If I will be welcome in
Or be left alone outside

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Listen... my son)

I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up
And a body face down
(Firstborn... last one)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen... my son)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow that is beckoning me
(Firstborn... last one)

I guess there comes a point
When you think to yourself
"This isn't worth it,
It isn't worth it"
And now I feel what you felt
And now I feel what you felt
Inside
Brother
And now I feel what you felt
This isn't worth it,
It isn't worth it

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Listen... my son)

I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up
And a body face down
(Firstborn... last one)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen... my son)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow that is beckoning me
(Firstborn... last one)
(Listen...)

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way.

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way.

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way.

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way.

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way.

I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't
I wish it didn't end this way.

Live a life in hell
Through a mortal shell asphyxiating smell
For a crime lifetime
Imagination locked in a cell
And to the other firstborn,
I see the same scene
That must play over in your mind
And now how much more
I'm sure it's fucked with your head
Just like it's fucked up mine.

"Listen, my son...
Firstborn, last one"
The message you
Sent out to me
I cannot change
What's meant to be
The message you
Sent out to me
I cannot change
What's meant to be
What am I supposed to do now?

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Hit its mark... hit its mark...)

I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up
And a body face down
(Body face down... body face down...)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen...)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow
That is beckoning me
(My son...)

I hear the sound of a heart
From the shadow in the dark
Waiting for the poison to hit its mark
(Listen... my son)

I see the darkness surround
The shape on the ground
The killer straight up
And a body face down
(Firstborn... last one)

I hear the din of the screams
Sorrow in streams
The smell of farewell and gasoline
(Listen... my son)

I see a heart set free
And my legacy
Hear a voice from a shadow
That is beckoning me
(Firstborn... last one)

Firstborn
You are the last one...
Firstborn

Addictive | Reviewer: Shadow Merseger | 12/20/11

I have listened to this song multiple times a week for a few months now, and it never gets old. It's the most addictive techno-y metal song I've ever known (and this coming from someone who's never liked either genre much), it's up-beat, intense, and the depth is astounding. All-around a good listen. I love this song, and reccomend it to anyone who has an open mind, or broad taste when it comes to music -- because this is a peice you'll never forget. Celldweller has definately gained a new fan.



Pure Genious | Reviewer: Ace | 2/25/10

It's very difficult to produce a song that is so long and so many complicated beats. The way it is structured builds and builds getting more intense every chorus. One of the only songs that i have found that I can listen to all day and night and notice a new beat or a new form of story that the music is playing.
Brilliant work Klayton!
10/10



A fine line | Reviewer: Daithí | 9/23/08

It's quite a fine line to walk when it comes to mixing metal and trance - and Celldweller nailed it.
The initial build up is quite fast and grabbed my attention immediately with a solid beat that will keep most peoples attention throughout the song.
The chorus doesn't let down. The lyrics paint a dark and vivid picture (yet still lets you build your own "scene") which subsequently zoned me out and made me think of the deeper side of this song. Whilst the beat remains intact, I truly realised the genius in the way The Last Firstborn is structured.

The only con is that the vocals are a bit dampened by all the music thats going on, and I think Klayton and co. could have maybe done a little better on the production side of things.

Over-all a great song that isn't set for a target audience.
9/10
