  • Hearts are worn in these dark ages
    You're not alone in this story's pages
    Night has fallen amongst the living and the dying
    And I try to hold it in, yeah I try to hold it in

    [Chorus]
    The world's on fire and
    It's more than I can handle
    I dive into the water
    (I try to bring my share)
    I try to bring more
    More than I can handle
    (Bring it to the table)
    Bring what I am able

    I watch the heavens and I find a calling
    Something I can do to change what's coming
    Stay close to me while the sky is falling
    Don't wanna be left alone, don't wanna be alone

    [Chorus]

    Hearts break, hearts mend
    Love still hurts
    Visions clash, planes crash
    Still there's talk of
    Saving souls, still the cold
    Is closing in on us

    We part the veil on Archille's sun
    Stray from the straight line on this short run
    The more we take, the less we become
    A fortune of one that means less for some
