Black Veil Brides – Last Rites lyrics

[Verse:]
Children born and raised on a Sunday, hearing what their leaders say
Singing along
A story missing to the ones who won't listen
All the words are left alone
But I've been running out, fighting to stay above the line
And I can feel the devil is close

[Pre-Chorus:]
It's gonna follow me down
It's gonna follow me down (let it follow)

[Chorus:]
Last rites in a lost city
I can't fight for a life I've never known
Dark lights giving no pity
Last rites for a place I call my home

[Verse 2:]
Fear is in the war for society, hungry for the heresy
Never atone
A spark that glistens for the souls of emission
Canonize this pile of stones
But I'm rebelling now, fighting to save my only life
I can feel the rapture is close

[Pre-Chorus:]
It's gonna follow me down
It's gonna follow me down (let it follow)

[Chorus:]
Last rites in a lost city
I can't fight for a life I've never known
Dark lights giving no pity
Last rites for a place I call my home
(Woah, ah ah, woah ah-ah)
Place I call my home
(Woah, ah ah, woah ah-ah)
Place I call my home

[Chorus:]
Last rites in a lost city
I can't fight for a life I've never known
Dark lights giving no pity
Last rites for a place I call my home
(Woah, ah ah, woah ah-ah)
Place I call my home
(Woah, ah ah, woah ah-ah)
Place I call my home
