Wait, there's never been a mess like this.
No more hands to hold.
The page turns tomorrow with the hurt to give up.
Curse us as God has (sold us).
Believe me, Hell has no room for your crime (here).
So beat me, until the blood and the bone finds our end near.

Bye bye world, or will our hope still hold on?
Boy, you're never gonna see, the things that will come of these (days)
Raise your hands high!
Young brothers and sisters,
There's a world's worth of work and a need for you.

Oh, change is coming, feel these doors now closing in.
Is there no world for tomorrow if we wait for today?

So march to the drumming, show them you're coming
You've been their play toy
Cut to the carving, bleed them 'til robbing
Enough! They'll take no more.

You've been given all the power, boy. Now go and make your move.

Curse us. These gods aren't faking. Have mercy on the cowards, boy.
They'll pray to have you lose.
Help us. This world's now breaking.

So now they've noticed all you've given in sound.
Let us in, let us in.
Give me love over life the sweet soft of ground.
Let us in, let us in now.

Bye bye world, or will our hope still hold on?
Boy, you're never gonna see, the things that will come of these (days)
Raise your hands high!
Young brothers and sisters,
There's a world's worth of work and a need for you.

Oh, change is coming, feel these doors now closing in.
Is there no world for tomorrow if we wait for today?

So march to the drumming, show them you're coming
You've been their play toy
Cut to the carving, bleed them 'til robbing
Enough! They'll take no more.

In the light we'll sing,
As all hurt must bring,
In the falling cusp,
Of all broken things.

In the coming dusk,
You will call on us,
And unite we must,
I'm the crowing!

You all think you've figured me out.
Do as I say.
Your words mean nothing at all.
So now I lay.

I said, "Come, Momma! Come, Momma! As I need."
I said, "Come, Momma! Come, Momma! Will watch you bleed."

What did I do to deserve
all of this?
What did I do
to deserve all of you?

Raise your hands high!
Young brothers and sisters,
There's a world's worth of work and a need for you.

Oh, change is coming, feel these doors now closing in.
Is there no world for tomorrow if we wait for today?

Bye, bye world
Or will our hope still hold on?

    I think it is more about how religious people think the world is ending and only they will be the ones surviving. I feel like the song is sort of mocking them.

    This worlds now breaking. There are people destroying our world on purpose (illuminati) through the money system impoverishing the masses through corporate greed and brainwashing us through media and political bs. It's our duty to rise together and take control of our own lives as well as the fate of this world. Only when we unite and educate ourselves will our world be saved. God cant save us. He cursed us and left us to these brutes. It is up to us now.

    This song is about the calling to war to me, as if its our duty something as humans we have to do in order to be classed as the 'normal' that we should be prepared to fight for our selves, even if its hopeless, and its a coheed song so its just pure amazingness

    Bye bye world says it all. I think it means the world will be gone before we know it. It might as well be leaving now.
