We Will Fall Together (Live)

I once knew a guy obsessed with the afterlife
Oh, what a terrible day that was, he realized he wasted all his
Time was ticking by, and he'd been left behind
And as the clock tick-tocked, his heart did stop
And everything he had was fucked

And we know not what we do, can you hear them call?
Will we ever make it through? As they watch us fall
From the sky to the sea, woe is me

No one will save you now
We can only look away, away, away, way, way, way, way
We'll not be victims, there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free and up will rise the meek

And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant

The beat and the bruised, forsaken, the abused
Oh, what a glorious day we'll have
Rising up and claiming all our dues
The day will come as sure as the ever setting sun
All of those that self impose will find themselves so indisposed

And we know not what we do, can you hear them call?
Will we ever make it through? As they watch us fall
From the sky to the sea, woe is me

No one will save you now
We can only look away, away, away, way, way, way, way
We'll not be victims, there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free and up will rise the meek

And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant

Now with the lines drawn in the wet sand
You need to tell us where you stand
Sitting, waiting, watching, rotting
Everything they warned us of is true
Now tell me what we're all supposed to do

They're coming after all of us with everything they've got
With the fury of a soldier who will answer to his God
So how will we fight?
All we have is logic and love on our side

And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant
