    Ok guys, here you go:

    This cityís made of diamonds
    And tomorrow glass will grow
    On the freedoms that divide us
    Theyíre coming after me
    Flashback 1984
    Now whoís knock-knocking at your door?
    A thought that starts a riot
    Theyíre coming after me now

    Life is not the same
    I am one but
    Sparks turn into flames

    Will you take whatís in my head?
    And erase me when Iím dead?
    Cause the future is now
    And now Iím disappearing

    The day has turned to night
    Can you save me from the light?
    Cause the future is here
    And this is how I disappear

    Running down a spiral
    With the light of better men
    Shouting progress is survival
    Take one last look and see me
    Now you see me, now you donít
    No vow to break
    No string of hope
    My hero, your pariah
    Theyíre coming after me now

    Life is just godís game
    I am one but
    Sparks turn into flames

    And you get what you deserve
    When revenge is what you serve
    Cause the future is now
    And now Iím disappearing

    Iíll sink into the night
    And Iím turning off the lights
    Cause the future is here
    And this is how I disappear

    So the endís what you make it
    And thatís what youíre looking for
    This is the future
    The future is now

    Disappear
    I disappear

    Now turn off the lights
    The skies are blue inside you
    Turn off the lights
    Theyíll get inside of you

    Of all the songs we've been listening live versions, like hammerhead, half truism, you're gonna go far kid, this is the one I like the most. Probably the best song of the new album, if its not... then we might have another masterpiece comming.

    Thank you for the lyrics!
