(Danny)
I just can't escape
It's like you're here with me now
But the words you say
They always seem to fade out
Since you been away
I'm just a face in the crowd
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back

(J-Dog)
Down in the dirt
With your blood on my hands
I blacked out
But now I do understand
That you were too good
For this world so you left it
Everything turned red
And then you made an exit
I don't even know
If it was your time
But like all good things
That pass you by
Just like a lost soul
In the time of need
It made me grow up fast
And put some blood on my knees
And you don't even know
It's beyond you
Thinking you could never die
Like you're bulletproof
So I guess you had to leave
You were born with wings
But you were never happy
Til the angels sing

(Danny)
I just can't escape
It's like you're here with me now
But the words you say
They always seem to fade out
Since you been away
I'm just a face in the crowd
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back down
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back down

(Johnny 3 Tears)
I'm ashes to ashes
I'm dust to dust
And when a man
Turns to ashes
Forget about love
Like the feeling inside you
With the bottle beside you
You both end up empty
Like an angel just died too
I look to the heavens
To the sky and the rest
I looked inside myself
I felt my heart in my chest
Some things are born blue
There's nothing to say
Some hearts can stay true
When falling away
Come lay down beside me
What could one life mean?
It's only what I've seen
It's only just one dream
Tell my baby I love her
And I wish I could hold her
It's hard to say goodbye
When you know that it's over

(Danny)
I just can't escape
It's like you're here with me now
But the words you say
They always seem to fade out
Since you been away
I'm just a face in the crowd
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back down
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back down
One day, one day
I know you're coming back down

(Johnny 3 Tears)
I know you're coming back
Know you're coming back
I know you're coming back down

I know you're coming back
Know you're coming back
I know you're coming back down (down)

I know you're coming back
Know you're coming back
I know you're coming back down

I know you're coming back
Know you're coming back
I know you're coming back down

I know you're coming back down

(Danny)
I just can't escape
It's like you're here with me now
But the words you say
They always seem to fade out
Since you been away
I'm just a face in the crowd
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back down
Someday, someday
I know you're coming back down
One day, one day
I know you're coming back down

    This is a great example of HU being able to make emotionally and lyrically awesome songs. Moreover, their new stuff rocks too but this is mine all time favorite.

    Never really listened to Hollywood Undead, but after listening to this song. I think I might just be a HU fan.

    I heard this song for the first time... It reminds me of my boyfriend Carlos who died two days ago. I miss him.

    Makes me think of a friend of mine i love that was killed by a drunk driver. Everytime i hear this song i think of him and wish he was here. I miss him. I'll never forget him and our memories! He was an inspiration to everyone he met. I will always miss him.

    "coming back down" means that no matter how many people you lose in your life, that have moved on into the after life, are still going to come back down to earth one day & live life again in a better way. Even though we have no control over death, the greatest thing will come of it.
