Written By: Year and a Day
One last token, one last cheer
Soaked unclear mind behind the wheel
For my destiny ride which I thought was near
Took a turn for the worse wakes my darkest fears, await
(chorus) Awake, a dream away uncertain reality
A spirit rise and look down upon this
The soul I stand beside surely stares right back at me
For I kneel beside a sin myself cannot forgive.
The one lies broken, the one can not live
A life I've taken I snap back inside myself
One lost token, one lost cheer
Concise bitter, realms through my darkest fear await

BAND: YEAR AND A DAY
SONG: THE UNKNOWN
Lyrics: Ryan Hogeland
Music: Year And A Day
I've seen you from falling skies to be unknown and to hear no lies. Memories lost are never clear. As I make my way. I live in fear. I just need someone to talk to I've been waiting for so long.
I cannot not see you Is it worth so much to be alone. When we haven't said goodbye my soul my soul will be unknown.
Yet I find a hut inside. It's just another face to hide. But in shame I just can't do that I’ve crossed that line so many times.
Memories lost are never clear, as I make my way, I live in fear. I just need someone to talk to I’ve been waiting for so long.
