End of Days Lyrics

12. End of Days (6:04)
Now that everything is lost
Everything I held dear
All gone in the madness of this world
Don't let me fall apart
Don't let me live a lie

Kiss my lips and poison my heart
Whisper your love and poison my soul
Anubis be my guide tonight
Let my thoughts run out of line
So we can start this show tonight

Drums pounding in the distance
Heralding the end of days
A whisper of a warning,
They grow louder every day
They bring the nightmare that's at bay
My final act
My betrayal

My ancestors in the past
Have foreseen a future that would last
So Fathers where are you now
I'm just wondering why

There are drums in the distance
Heralding the end of days
A whisper of a warning,
They grow louder every day
There will be no new dawn
For me a child of (the) Gods
Now the drums are beating faster
"It's coming now, It's coming now" they warn

There comes a time when you decide
A time to make a sacrifice
And pay the final price in blood
So sacred and divine

Is there glory in such an act?
Endless death or eternal fame
And as the final curtain falls
I'm just wondering why

There were drums in the distance
Heralding the end of days
A whisper of a warning,

They grow louder every day
There will be no new dawn
For I was child of (the) Gods
Father please come get me now
And take me to a better place
Yes there were drums in the distance
Heralding the end of days
Come and see my final act
Of despair and of regret
Won't see a brand new dawn
For I was child of (the) Gods
All for this day, this twisted glory
Still I'm wondering why

There were drums in the distance
Heralding the end of days
A whisper of a warning,
They grow louder every day
There will be no new dawn
For I was child of (the) Gods
Father please come get me now
And take me to a better place
Yes there were drums in the distance
Heralding the end of days
Come and see my final act
Of despair and of regret
Won't see a brand new dawn
For I was child of (the) Gods
All for this day, this twisted glory
Still I'm wondering why

Can't hear it, can't see it, can't feel it, can't hide it
Don't need this damnation
When all I sought was salvation
Can't hear it, can't see it, can't feel it, can't hide it
Don't need forgotten glory
Still can't help but wonder why

Have the Gods forsaken,
Have the Gods forsaken me?
Have the Gods forgotten,
Have the Gods forgotten me?

In a life it's hardest to know which bridges to burn
and which ones to cross
All these paths can surely make one scream when it all seems like a dream
Somewhere out there there is truth and there are lies,
all well hidden in disguise
For what follows ends in my goodbye, still can't help but wonder why
