I am the shadow, and the smoke in your eyes
I am the ghost, that hides in the night

Boom-lay boom-lay, boom!

Wait, wait a minute take a step back,
Gotta think twice before you react.
So stay, stay a little while cause a promise
Not kept is the road to exile
Hey, what's the circumstance
You'll never be great without taking a chance
So, wait you waited too long
Had your hands in your pocket
When you should've been gone.

Boom-lay boom-lay boom
One push is all you need
Boom-lay boom-lay boom
Fist first philosophy.
Boom-lay boom-lay boom
We watch with wounded eyes.
Boom-lay boom-lay boom
So I hope you recognize.

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness, so long to the regrets
And now I see the world through diamond eyes

Damn, damn it all down
Took one to the chest without even a sound
so, what, what do you worth
The things you love or the people you hurt
Hey, it's like deja vu, a suicidal maniac with nothing to lose
So wait, it's the exception to the rule
Everyone of us is expendable

Boom-lay boom-lay boom
One push is all you need
Boom-lay boom-lay boom
Fist first philosophy.
Boom-lay boom-lay boom
We watch with wounded eyes.
Boom-lay boom-lay boom
So I hope you recognize.

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness,
So long to the regrets
And now I know that I'm alive

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness so long to the regrets
And now I see the world through
Diamond Eyes

Every night of my life I watch angels fall from the sky
Every time that the sun still sets
I pray they don't take mine

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness so long to regrets

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness so long to the regrets
And now I know that I'm alive

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness, so long to the regrets
And now I see the world through diamond eyes

I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
The story is just beginning
I say goodbye to my weakness,
So long to the regrets
And now i see the world through
Diamond eyes

Boom-lay boom-lay boom
