We tell ourselves nothing compares
We’re never satisfied and nothing’s ever fair
This whole system’s breaking through the atmosphere and we’re gasping for air

Resetting wrong
We take the fall
This leap of faith’s got us up against the wall
Revenge will only go so far
Salvation’s calling

Broken inside
The fear and rage unfurls
So open your eyes
To the bright side that you deserve
It takes time for the open wound to heal
It takes an open mind for one to steal
It takes a lifetime to perfect the art
That moment of glory

We set the walls up to defend
But we end up tearing them down again
When we fall in love
They break our hearts
And We feel so small when we’ve come so far
As darkness falls upon the lens
The still picture fights to make amends
A flawless start to a bitter end
We transcend, and we ascend
And we accept the bitter end
So let us go

Pound for pound
The bell sounds another round
Emotions flow out
The take down
What’s golden sells

Hypnotized by every flashing light
Is it worth the price we pay for eternal fame?
Adoration’s the name of the game
Advertisement shapes the passing flame
It’s better to go out in a blaze than to fade
We’ll never fade

They said it all
So what’s the point
Of letting it get to your head?
We’ve heard it all before
And this right here is the calm before the storm
When I return I’ll take the crown
There’s nothing that can stop me now
That’s life living on the edge
In the end I will ascend

I will ascend
