This world was never worthy
But how can I call it unfaithful
Every promise was fulfilled
As decay crawled from it's throat
Like the dead rising from an open grave (2x)
Lips of splendor and tongue of deceit
All dying now as our fragile wrists hold only waste

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

(Nothing left) 2x
(There's nothing left)
(Nothing left)

If All my sorrow has led me here
Then I would cry all of my tears
To have this chance again (2x)
I know there's more than this
I know there's more than you

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

Like those gasping for their last breath
We cannot hide there's nothing left

    Everyone hating on the religious material of this song, why? Their a christian band who likes to rockout. The true meaning of this song, has to do with when we die there won't be anything left. We can't take what we have with us. "lips of splendor and tongue of deceit
    All dying now as our fragile wrists hold only waste. "
    I didn't just make up the meaning to the song, i saw as i lay dying play friday at mayhem fest and the singer actually said this is what the song means before he sang.

    Real music is metal, not pop. These songs have meaning, but crappy artists like rebecca black sing only about love and girls, metal actually tell us what the real world is like

    I need to thank these bands like these. I dont feel alone anymore. I have something else another choice instead of suicide. Thank you for creating life in music.
