Not Long for This World Lyrics

12. Not Long for This World (4:10)
The emptiness as your fading away
Never knew you’d only come this far
Terminal, limitation portrayed
As your frailty becomes who you are
Forgiving yourself for all that you’ve done
And all that you have failed to achieve
There is little excuse and even less time
Better start working out what you believe

Welcome to my domain
Feel the embrace of expectancy
Submit to the gradual drain
As life slips away

I’m not long for this world
Circling this mortal coil
My time is running out
I’m not far from the end
I’m not among this life
Out of place at best I linger
Drawn out far too long
I’m drained and ever shifting to the grave

Cohesion is lost as it disintegrates
Echoing a morbid reverie
The fallen’s song drones in your ear
A dirge for sanity
Latent voices summoning your darkest days
Unmasked as the gallows appear
The sentinels of your approaching end
Rise from the blackest abyss

Welcome to my domain
Feel the embrace of expectancy
Submit to the gradual drain
As life slips away

I’m not long for this world
Circling this mortal coil
My time is running out
I’m not far from the end
I’m not among this life
Out of place at best I linger
Drawn out far too long
I’m drained and ever shifting to the grave

I count the minutes as they drain away
In my departure from vivacity
My degradation is nearing complete
My life exhausted it will taste defeat

Nothing to hold onto, only essence of existence
Empty shell of former prominence
Slipping ever gradual, rate increasing, so unnatural
I struggle at the last defence
Consuming, the acceptance of a terminal prognosis
Never cared for living anyway
Drowning in the calm, a wake engulfs before the storm
The silence hollow, my departure plays

Solo: Ryan

There is no peace as we await the bitter end
There is no salvation for the condemned
There is a faltering that I cannot contend
These are the final moments of my endurance

I’m Not Long For This World
