01. Daylight Dies

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
We watch the degradation of the civilization
The rise and fall of all we are
Stands here before us

This place is evil
We stare in insult
This world is vile
We are the answer

How long until we die?
Die from the inside out
How much is enough to see the light?
How much blood must be shed?

Come past the lies
We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries
The wait 'til daylight dies
Daylight dies

We all have blood on our hands
How can we (how can we) ignore the sound?

Come past the lies
We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries
The wait 'til daylight dies

The cost of one life
The price of ones soul
Is too much to lose

No more broken promises
The shattered hearts will heal
No more broken promises
No more (no more)

Come past the lies
We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries
The wait 'til daylight dies

How long until it dies?
How long?
How long?
How long until it dies
How long?
How long?


02. This is Absolution

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
We will not die this way, in unification
They cannot break these chains of faith
Let them do their worst (let them do their worst)
Never slaves to iniquity

We will not die this way (this is absolution)
Death claims us no more (no more)
Do not grief, end the suffering
We will live, were eternal

Will take the stand among the dead?
Bury your fear, and hold fast to life

We will not die this way (this is absolution)
Death claims us no more (no more)
Do not grieve, end the suffering
We will live, were eternal

Anchor yourself to the foundation of everything you love
Believe you have just become to live

Don't let the world deceive you
Don't let their words betray you
Don't let their lies deceive you
Lead them to their graves

We will not die this way (This is absolution)
Death claims us no more (no more)
Do not grief, end the suffering
We will live, were eternal


03. The Arms of Sorrow

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
Imprisoned, inside this mind
Hiding behind the empty smiles
So simple (delinquish)
Isn't much made
Crawling back into the dark

Running, always running, into the distance
Stop me before I bleed, again

The echoes of my voice
Follow me down
The shadows I cast
Follow me down

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Building descending
Into the arms of sorrow

There must be serenity

The echoes of my voice
Follow me down
The shadows I cast
Follow me down

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Building descending
Into the arms of sorrow

The demons of my own design
This horror not remain

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Building descending
Into the arms of sorrow

There must be serenity
There must be deliverance
Deeper I'm falling
Building decending


04. Unbroken

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
Forever falling into oblivion
The darkness crawls forward and engulfs my will to live
Fear is failure and this is my motivation

Take back what is stolen
Reclaim all that is lost
With virtue I will rise up from the ruins

Through adversity there is redemption
With passion fighting
I am unbroken
Through adversity there is redemption
With passion fighting
I am unbroken

Take back what is stolen
Embrace the struggle
Refuse to turn back now and be led astray
Fear is failure and this is my affirmation

Through adversity there is redemption
With passion fighting
I am unbroken
Through adversity there is redemption
With passion fighting
I am unbroken

The absence of fear is the renewal of self
The absence of doubt breeds desire
If there is truth to fate I will design it
I will not be denied


05. My Curse

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
I watched you walk away
Hopeless, with nothing to say
I screen my eyes
Hoping to see you again

This is my curse (the longing)
This is my curse (to)
This is my curse (the yearning)
This is my curse

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?
Will you be here?

Your silence haunts me
But I still hunger for you

This is my curse (the wanting)
This is my curse (to)
This is my curse (the needing)

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?

Still I want
And I still I ache
But still I wait
To see you again

Dying, inside, these walls

Can I see your face in these tears? In these tears
And I see your face...

There is love


06. For You

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
The fires burn through me
Are only stench of you
Don't put aside
The time slips by
Are only cult of you

I give my word to stand the test of time
No more wasted days
The past must bury

The line is drawn
I pledge my devotion
There is no turning back
This heart is yours
I sacrifice for you (for you)

This is immortal

The fires burn through me
Are only stench of you

With each passing day, this harm is endless
No more wasted time
We are immortal

The line is drawn
I pledge my devotion
There is no turning back
This heart is yours
I sacrifice for you (for you)

This is the everlasting
This is immortal

Your words are my inspiration
Your life, an image of perfection
For all you are, for all you've done
Stands to be in a reflection

The line is drawn
I pledge my devotion
There is no turning back
This heart is yours
I sacrifice for you (for you)

This is the everlasting
This is immortal


07. Still Beats Your Name

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
Who knows how long I've been lost in the dark
Followed closely by the footsteps of my failures
What can I do to altar my perception of the way and the truth?

Let this burden drift away

Who knows how long the void has swallowed me
I only wish for nothing more than peace to find me
How can this be?
We've come so far to let the weight destroy our grand design

Let this burden drift away
My pledge remains faithful to you
And my heart still beats your name

Drowning once again
Will I live another day?
To reach the surface
Let this burden drift away

Drowning
Choking
Fading
Life

Is this the moment where I leave the blackness?
Is this the moment of my rebirth?

Who knows how long I've been lost in the dark
Followed closely by the footsteps of my failures
What can I do to altar my perception of the way and the truth

Drowning once again
Will I live another day?
To reach the surface
Let this burden drift away

Drowning again
Reach the surface
Let it drift away


08. Eye of the Storm

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
As time goes by
Nothing has changed
I wont stand and watch
You wither away

After all this time
I stand by you
Through all of the years
I've been with you

Through pain and affliction
With every addiction
I will never let you down

I will
Never surrender
You and I are one

Through the eye
Of the storm
You are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone

After all this time
Still you struggle
Even words of love
Ring so hollow

I have no regrets
I have no remorse
And if you falter
I wont let you down

Through the eye
Of the storm
you are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone

Come on

Together we stand
Never fall
No matter the trial
We will overcome
Together we stand
Never fall
No matter the Trial
We will overcome

Through the eye
Of the storm
You are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone

Never
Together we stand
Never fall
No matter the trial
We will overcome
We will overcome


09. Break The Silence

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
As I live and breathe
I'm watching, watching a world die
We greet this with apathy
No longer consumed by self
We walk through each day with no mind to deprivation and moral decay

We must destroy and rebuild
We must destroy and rebuild for the sake of all
It starts with one

As I live and breathe
I'm watching, watching a world die
We greet this with apathy
No longer

If we can't break the silence
How can we survive?
Search inside yourself
Know that you're alive
We must break the silence, now we are alive
Silent no longer

Make this world take notice that change is in our hands
The battle has just begun
We are not defeated

If we can't break the silence
How can we survive?
Search inside yourself
Know that you're alive
We must break the silence, now we are alive
Silent no longer

With all that I am
I will lift my voice to start this revolution
It starts today and it starts with me
Silent no longer
With all I am
I will lift my voice
With all I am
It starts with me
Break the silence, we are alive


10. Desperate Times

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
Time and time again
I stand at the crossroad
Where the weight of my burden
Eclipses my resolve
This broken path I've chosen
I walk it alone
Though I feel forgotten
You've carved my name in stone

In these desperate times
This I plead
When all else fails
Remember me

This is daily crucifixion
And these rusted nails leave scars
My jagged crown is on my side
Because it never fell

In these desperate times
This I plead
When all else fails
Remember me

Theres no question
You're the answer
I will find you...

In these desperate times
This I bleed
When all fails
Remember me
In these desperate times
This I bleed
When all fails
Remember me


11. Reject Yourself

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
Their cries are blown away with the wind
How passive can we be before humanity is lost?
Turning our backs on those who need love
We must not rest while healing is needed

Tear down the veil that bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself
Give your souls to compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life

So little time is left
We must be relentless in our pursuit of those in torment

Tear down the veil that bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself
Become the voice of compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life

Can you reject yourself?
Can you feel their agony?
In a world that feeds on disregard
Heal the broken hearted


12. Be One

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
With conviction
You must stand your ground
Don't be deceived
Strength is salvation

It is so easy to live the life of a follower

We must kill the idols
Don't fall prey to seduction
With single-mindedness
We must pursue the truth

Nevermore the victim
Let them say that we are not of their world

With the promise of life
We are strong
We will carry on

Kill the idols

No more disillusion
Let them say what they will -what they will-
Their answer to our higher calling
Is conceived by their hatred

Nevermore the victim
Let them say that we are not of their world

With the promise of life
We are strong
We will carry on
With the promise of life
We are strong
We will carry on

Be one, for your conviction
Be one for your devotion
You will be hated
for your dedication
You will be hated
You will be hated

With the promise of life
We are strong
We will carry on


13. Let The Bridges Burn

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
We have come too far to let our fulfillment fall away.
I must refuse to renounce my integrity.
We stand in defiance to their ethics.
Let the grief that they have inflicted serve as our call to arms.
Are you ready? Are you willing to be the catalyst?
We can no longer be indifferent.
Restore this dying world.

From misery we have turned away
Ignite the past, let the bridges burn.

My eyes watch the unholy be left in the distance.
The division of our souls from our blasphemous tongues.
This is our atonement.

From misery we have turned away
Ignite the past, let the bridges burn.
From sorrow we have turned away to the past
Let the bridges burn.

I have bled for the truth.
There is no surrender.
Move forward.
Commit yourself.
Destroy all lies.

From ashes to ashes
From dust to dust.

From misery we have turned away
Ignite the past, let the bridges burn.
Let the bridges burn.


14. This Fire

Music & lyrics by Killswitch Engage
All I've ever wanted was destiny to be fulfilled,
it is in my hands, I must not fail,
I must not fail.

Even through the darkest days,
this fire burns, always.
this fire burns, always.

This is the broken ground
Misery begins to rise.
Turn away from yesterday,
tomorrow's in my eyes.

Nevermore to be held down
by the wings of history.
Nevermore to be cast aside,
this day is mine.

Even through the darkest days,
this fire burns, always.
this fire burns, always.

I will not be denied
in this final hour.
I will not be denied,
this day is mine.

The passion inside me,
is burning, is burning.
The passion inside me,
is burning, is burning.

Even through the darkest days,
this fire burns always (always).
This fire burns (fire burns) always.
Always (always).


15. Holy Diver

Music & lyrics by Dio
Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what's becoming of me?

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh, don't you see what I mean?

Gotta get away
Holy Diver

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you - look out!

Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh, we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away - get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel

Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

Jump, jump
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what's becoming of me? - No!

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh, don't you see what I mean?

Gotta get away, get away (get away!)
Gotta get away, get away

Holy Diver, sole survivor
Your heart is clean
Yeah, Holy Diver (Holy diver)
Holy Diver (Holy Diver)

You're caught in the middle coming after you, Holy Diver

Oh, Holy Diver (Holy Diver)
Get away, get away, get away - come on!
