The Day That the World Breaks Down Lyrics

1. The Day That the World Breaks Down (12:32)
Track rating :  100 / 100      Votes :  2     
[Historian] A silence so deafening, as the stillness surrounds us
A rush of fear is surging through our veins
A shadow so menacing darkens our horizon
What have we done, is this the end... when death descends?

[Opposition Leader] Don’t say I didn’t warn you, you’ll recall my words
The day that the world breaks down
Don’t claim you didn’t see it, are you prepared to die?
The day that the world breaks down

[Chemist] I can’t believe we’re in danger
I can’t believe that we’ve let it come this far
[Counselor] We must prepare for the changes
We must prepare for the day that the world breaks down

[Opposition Leader] Don’t expect we will survive this, there’ll be no way back
The day that the world breaks down
Don’t assume it’s all a nightmare, we won’t stand a chance
The day that the world breaks down

[Chemist] I can’t believe this is happening
I can’t believe we are headed for a fall
[Counselor] We must prepare for the blackening
We must prepare for the day that the world breaks down

[Prophet] I can feel it in my heart, I can see it in the stars
Behold, it’s all been foretold, the future unfolds
The day that the world breaks down!

[Captain] I always knew this would happen
Not many believed in my cause
I‘m sure they will all turn to me now, I’m sure I am the only one
who can save us... (TH1: Starblade!) from this fate
I always knew they would need me
Not many showed faith in my plans
I’m sure they will listen to me now, I’m sure that I’m the only one
who can save us... (TH1: Starblade!) from this fate

[Astronomer] Yes, I believe you are the answer
Yes, I agree you are the key
Our future lies in the heavens, our future lies beyond the stars (TH1: Starblade!)
We will save them (TH1: Starblade!) we will save them (TH1: Starblade!)
From this fate!

[TH1] 01110100 01110010 01110101 01110011 01110100 01010100 01001000 00110001

[President] I must have been blind, I mean, it should have been obvious
Straight out of my mind to rely on a cold machine
The signs are strong, I know I was wrong, I know they will hate me now
Ooh, but I will come clean and destroy this cold machine
[Diplomat] This is not over, not as long as we’re alive
If we join our forces we will make it
This is not over, as a race we must survive
And in the end we’ll cross this bridge...together

[President] We’re losing this fight, and yes, we’ve got ourselves to blame
I guess it seems right in the mind of a cold machine
I’ll fix every flaw, I’ll break every law, I’ll tear up the rulebook if that’s what it takes
You will see, I will crush this cold machine
[Diplomat] This is not over, I am sure we’ll find a way
Out of this desperate situation
This is not over, even if it all seems hopeless
For in the end we’ll cross this bridge... together

[Biologist] I can feel it in the air, the signs are everywhere
Communications grind to a halt, traffic has stopped
The grid starts to fail, planes crashing down
We’re getting closer to the day...the world breaks down
