Don't go, does it have to be this way?
Can't we have just one more chance?
Those who know they will not say

Must this be the final dance in our lives as time just moves on?
Yesterday's years are too quickly gone
All visions fade as world's fall apart
Decisions are made but they're in this dark now, they're in this dark now

Somewhere on this night a life is out there
And can someone tell me how?
Here on this night so far away bits of starlight fall where they may
I never wanted to go, I never wanted to stay, I never wanted to be afraid

But still childhood sees what childhood will
But nothing ever stays the same
I fear the night, I fear the dark
I need this light, that distant spark

I know that somewhere, someone's looking to deceive and
Somewhere young men die and children bleed and
Somewhere some have too much while others need and
Somewhere someone's looking to believe and

Somewhere, somewhere, somewhere, somewhere
And the night and the dark and the hopes and the dreams
As we all play our parts while ignoring the screams
So we lie to ourselves and we just carry on
Never stop, never turn, don't admit what is gone

Into this twisted story all these things so clear before me
Every path we've ever taken can't admit we were mistaken
In this night of my devising, never live and never dying
Each escape I've never taken, never dream and never waken

Somewhere, someone's looking to deceive and
Somewhere young men die and children bleed and
Somewhere some have too much while others need and
Somewhere someone's looking to believe and

Come one, come all
Welcome to the world's greatest entertainment since the fall of Rome
Life, death, victims, voyeurs
The best of society, the lowest of plebeians

And to keep it all in extremely interesting
Today's patrons could very easily be tomorrow's entertainment
All compliments of the ultimate showman fate
All that's missing is the coliseum

Did you ever walk up to the edge of a cliff?
Stare into the abyss as your mind wonders if
You should take one more step further into that night
Well, your mind says you won't but your heart says you might

Would you fall through the dark, feel the wind in your hair?
Would you embrace the ground and end your life right there?
Or would God reach His hand and that moment you fly
Or if He chanced to blink and then that moment you die

You die, you die, you die, you die
You die, you die, you die

Stare into the dark as the abyss keeps calling
Try to take a step but then the mind keeps stalling
Can a single question just go on forever?
As a single thought goes on, it's now or never

Stare into the dark as the abyss keeps calling
Try to take a step but then the mind keeps stalling
Can a single question just go on forever?
As a single thought goes on, it's now or never

Never really took much, never really had to
Only had a small crush, problem was that it grew
Never really took much, never really had to
Only had a small crush, problem was that it grew

Be who you are, what you were, what they see
From eternity's view tell me which one is me
Can you be who you are, what you were, what they see?
From eternity's view tell me which one is me

On this night keep me close, on this night breathe my air
On this night hold me tight, feel my heart beating there
On this night keep me close, on this night breathe my air
On this night hold me tight, feel my heart beating there

On this night keep me close, on this night breathe my air
On this night hold me tight, feel my heart beating there
On this night keep me close, on this night breathe my air
On this night hold me tight, feel my heart beating there

Did you ever walk up to the edge of a cliff?
Stare into the abyss as your mind wonders if
You should take one more step further into that night
Well, your mind says you won't but then this all is your life

Your life, your life
This all is your life, your life, your life
This all is your life, your life, your life
This all is your, is your life, is your life
Is your life, is your life
