Intro Dawn Before Dark

Lost in a room where nothing will change

Lost in a room where nothing will change

Wall to wall

Wall to wall

Verse 1

Lost in a room

Where nothing, nothing will change

Wall, wall to wall hatred

And your heart, beats a sound

And you say, well hey, how does it feel

Chorus

Hard to tell but it hurts like hell

And you say, well hey, how does it feel

Hard to tell but it hurts like hell

And you say, well hey

Verse 2

The beat is a message

To show you, show you the way

A heart breaking sound

That will bring, bring a new day

And you say, well hey, how does it feel

Chorus

Hard to tell but it hurts like hell

And you say, well hey, how does it feel

Hard to tell but it hurts like hell

And you say, well hey

Middle Eight

Like you always said, its darker before dawn

Twisting in my head, time, time

Outro

Time, time
