Lyrics

This is the end
The door won’t open again
Another key falls off the chain
The best of enemies part ways
Better than we did today
Some goodbyes you shouldn’t say
The white flag was raised
But they shot it down in flames
And let the ashes rain fire

But you’re dressed in white
Because the darkner the night
Means the brighter your light
Can shine on through

You gotta brush yourself off
Pick up the pieces
Dust yourself
Get off your knees and
Brush yourself off
Forget your weakness
Say your peace and
Brush yourself
Pick up the pieces
Dust yourself
Find what you need and
Send yourself off
Off on your way then
Say your piece and begin again

Back two steps and forward three
Raise a new flag, alert the calvary
Because the battle’s far from over
Nothing ever stays the same
Last year’s fail is this year’s fame
Uncertainty is always certain
They may have locked all thier doors
And barred every stain-glass window
We’ll make our own way through the darkness

Because you’re dressed in white
And the darker the night
Means the brighter your light
Can shine on through
