Now the World (Bonus Track) - (15:19 minute version) Lyrics

by AFI

Summer, I painted a scene that lit the stars for me
Said, "I can erase it for you dear"
That summer created those words that came to life in three
They were denied by you

Summer I laid down below a glitter adorned night
And silently sparkled my own way
Summer I laid down by you and shared my frail light
You gave the dark to me

I looked inside to find the one I sent away
I nearly froze when I stepped inside to find the flowers turned to gray
I closed my eyes and kissed them one last time
(I wanted this excoriation I thrive on this self mutilation)

Summer, a morning so pale alone when they found me
As I remained sleeping I heard them say
"This summer created a boy of abject misery"
He was designed by you

I looked inside to find the one I sent away
I nearly froze when I stepped inside to find the flowers turned to gray
I closed my eyes and kissed them one last time
(I wanted this excoriation I thrive on this self mutilation)

So like a lost child I will hide
And like a lost lie I will find a way
To return to the ones who made me
Cover your eyes and we'll die together

Will you cry for me? Will you cry for me?
Or will you cry with me?
Will you cry for me? Will you cry for me?
Or will you cry with me?

Will you cry for me?
I've been a lonely one
Will you cry for me?
I've had this whole world drained from me

Or will you die with me?
Will you cry for me?
Am I the only one?
Will you cry for me?

I've had this world drained from me, drained from me
Or will you die with me?

Summer, I painted a scene that lit the stars for me
Said, "I can erase it for you dear"
