Murder By Death – Last Night On Earth lyrics

I saw people pray
I saw people fight
I saw the day turn
To endless night
The rivers rose
And it took its toll
Hope faded
I folded
Skyscrapers fallen to the ground
Children lost in the rubble and never found
Last night on Earth
Last night on Earth
Don't look back
It was the last night
I saw a husband cradle his wife
I saw satellites fall from the sky
I felt the hope that I carried inside die
I saw power, corruption and fools
I saw wild dogs scavenging the schools
While the charlatans sold water to the drowned
The lost instructed the found
But out there
I saw you surrounded by light
The fire of your spirit burning bright
I saw the glimmer of the hook
The last page of the book
Just a spark to catch my eye
And I knew I was on borrowed time
