The empty skies turn black
Their bones turn to figments
Desolation is in the air
This is destation

Though we linger off
It dies
Before our eyes
It dies

As far as the eye can see
Only destruction
Is it Hopeless?
What can be done?

Is it too late?
Are we too late?
To save ourselves
We're living in, in a dead world

Crying out for a change
What can be done?
Each day we slip further away
On the edge of ruin

It wont be long
Before we shut down
Is it Hopeless?
What can be done?

Is it too late?
Are we too late?
To save ourselves
We're living in, in a dead world

It's so cold
And we're no one to blame
Blame ourselves

Now this is our fight
Because there is little left
To hold on to
And to beg forgiveness
For willing blindness
Now I can say

It's not too late, oh not too late
To save ourselves
It's not too late, Oh not too late
To save ourselves

    I think this song is about pulling your self out of addiction and turning away from the old you and becoming a new person

    hmm, I'm still not sure about it. But you got "change" which I didn't notice.
    I am the one who originally put up the lyrics by the way.
    And yeah, I gotta agree, one of the best for sure.
