lyrics

I know that right now it's far too late
And you don't even know who I am anyway
I don't know or care who you are
I don't know why you did what you've done
I just wish I could take us back to the point
Before you hurt anyone

The uncrossable line keeps sliding out into the dark
You watched the line in the rear view and crossed into daylight
Only a moment for the chaos to subside
Into pieces reflective of your fractured mind
Taking a glimpse at a row of random survivors
Petrified and paralyzed

One voice coming up from behind you
One preying upon your mind
One voice that is trying to play on your sympathy
One solely to rationalize

All we want is to discover the answer
And you found a way to take it away
Leaving behind you only the sound of a voice
Being silenced by the sound of a...

Only so many times we can rise from the ashes
Before crossing the terminator back into midnight
Only a moment, and the pluralism divides
Into factions polarized on either side
Taking a shot at the remains of a civilization
Purified and cannibalized

One voice coming up from behind you
One preying upon your mind
One voice that is trying to play on your synpathy
One solely to rationalize

All that's left is to discover the answer
Well, you found a way to take that away
Leaving behind you only the sound of a voice being silenced

Silenced by the sound of a ricochet
