Time is becoming
More precious than gold.
All those times wasted alone.

Starving children,
The poisoned water,
And the suffocating skies.

We won't get another chance this time.
We won't get a second chance this time.
You'll be lucky if you make it out alive.
Haven't we lost our minds?
What the hell were we all thinking?
Now they're choosing sides.
This is the world.
This is the world.

A virus known as rage
Is brutally destroying
And spreading all over the place.
A bleeding culture.
A dying nation.
When the money controls the tide.


We won't get another chance this time.
We won't get a second chance this time.
You'll be lucky if you make it out alive.
Haven't we lost our minds?
What the hell were we all thinking?
Now they're choosing sides.
This is the world as we know it.
Have we lost our minds?

The tension is rising and rising,
And the world is at stake.
Take back what belongs to you, my God,
Before it's too late.

Take it baaack.
Take it baaack.
Take it baaack.

So close your eyes
And paint the picture.
The sunset staring back
Won't last forever, forever.

Just close your eyes
And paint the picture,
Cause the world we could have had
Would have been better,
Much better.

Just close your eyes
And paint the picture,
Cause the sunset staring back
Won't last forever, forever.

    This song is about war and how our world is being eaten away with violence and hate. How we're wasting our time doing all this, when we could just take it back and have a better world.
