IRIS (Will Ryan)

"As the Lights Go Out (Rock Version)"

[Verse 1]
Stone cold, in the middle of a circus
But the lights are all on you
Try to fake a smile
But the curtain draws on you
When the crowd begins to cheer
It's a sign that the end is drawing near

Presenting the world
When the lights go out

[Verse 2]
The tears fade
Right before their very eyes
But yours begin to shed
Fake it for a while
But the causing darkness dreads

For behind each casting art
Is the image of a
Man who's torn apart

Escaping the world
When the lights go out

[Chorus]
Fear not
I have descended
Before you even knew
I only told a minor few
The smile you see
Can't comprehend it
But I died too long ago
So every time I start the show
I drop the act and away I go!

[Verse 3]
Stone throws
Or a friend with a message
But the message failed to send
Too many times I've bailed when the shows about to end

Like an intermittent break
Like a purgatory sendin' me to shake

I walk off the stage
And the lights fo out

[Verse 4]
You would've never believed me while smilin'
You would've stopped to intrigue while I'm frownin'
You would've helped just to shake it off
But it bled me dry!
Maybe you're not supposed to know
But would it kill to just
Remind yourself I'm gone!

I'm broken again
As the lights go out

[Chorus]
Fear not
I have descended
Before you even knew
I only told a minor few
The smile you see
Can't comprehend it
But I died too long ago
So every time I start the show
I drop the act and away I go!

[Bridge]
By the time you hear me cry
I'll have lost you through thousands of voices
All blinded by the sounds
No remorse for me is found
And I am not meant to be chained to the ground!
I have no soul have no girl have no promises
Yet the mask is in the way!!

So every time I take my leave
Oh darkness please oh just leave me be
Holding on for life
I can't let you know why I'm alive!!

[Chorus]
Fear not
I have descended
Before you even knew
I only told a minor few
The smile you see
Can't comprehend it
But I died too long ago
So every time I start the show
I drop the act and away I go!

[Outro]
By the time this little number ends
I'm gone
And you can't cure my mind
