about

"A song written in memory of all the friends & loved ones we've had pass on over the years. We love you."

lyrics

To all my friends
These are the times we won't forget
We watched the hands of God
Take the life of a desperate, hopeless man
So lifeless, and so desperate

This is a sickness
And it claims the body of us all
We can't hide the fact that we're dying slowly
Slowly, but surely oh, death has a number for us all
Where will you be at the curtain call?

To all my friends (to all my friends)
These are the times that we won't forget
We can't forget
As the fire burns
In the hearts of those
Who have suffered the consequence
We won't forget

We won't forget the fire in the eyes
[Of a man] Of a man with a passion to survive
[Goodbye my friend] Goodbye my friend. I pray to God I see your face
[In the end] In the end, I just can't understand

If you could only see
See through eyes of a dying man
So lifeless
Its something we can't understand

Its hard to think that death can sneak up so silently
Its safe to say that we're out of control
You can't sit still, oh no, and watch this life here pass you by
Some of us won't even get the chance to try
Get the chance to try and escape such horrible fate
We won't forget

We won't forget the fire in the eyes
[Of a man] Of a man with a passion to survive
[Goodbye my friend] Goodbye my friend. I pray to God I see your face
[In the end] In the end, I just can't understand
Just can't understand

To all my friends, these are the times we won't forget
I never had a chance to say goodbye
To all my friends [to all my friends]
These are the times we won't forget.
I never had a chance to say

Goodbye, I never had the chance to say

This sickness eats us alive from the inside
Don't ever take this life for granted.
This sickness eats us alive from the inside
Don't take this life for granted.
