The stars will cry,
The blackest tears tonight.
And this is the moment that I live for,
I can smell the ocean air.
Here I am,
Pouring my heart onto these rooftops.
Just a ghost to the world,
That's exactly, exactly what I need.

From up here the city lights burn,
Like a thousand miles of fire.
And I'm here to sing this Anthem
Of our Dying Day.

For a second I wish the tide
Would swallow every inch of this city,
As you gasp for air tonight.
I'd scream this song,
Right in your face if you were here.
Swear I wont miss a beat,
Cause I never, never have before.

From up here the city lights burn,
Like a thousand miles of fire.
And I'm here to sing this Anthem
Of our Dying Day...
Of our dying day...
Of our dying... day...
Of our dying!

For a second I wish the tide
Would swallow every inch of this city,
As you gasp for air tonight...

From up here these city lights burn,
Like a thousand miles of fire.
And I'm here to sing this Anthem
Of our Dying Day.

From up here these city lights burn,
Like a thousand miles of fire.
And I'm here to sing this Anthem
Of our Dying Day.

From up here these city lights burn,
Like a thousand miles of fire.
And I'm here to sing this Anthem
Of our Dying Day...
Our dying day...
Of our dying...

    A man whose girlfriend drops out on him, leaving him alone in a world he wasn't quite ready to handle alone, so as his emotions reach their bursting point, he feels alone and invisible, and screaming at the world,as though he were seeing everythingfrom above in his anger nd pain.
