As I look back upon the friends and teams we lost When I was on my odyssey I cannot help but think of all that it has cost And the first thing to my mind is to be free Everything I touch turns to ashes And all I want to do is run away But running always makes it worse No power to dispel the curse My freedom was the price I wouldn't pay How can I think of myself at a time like this The better ones just wouldn't flee their crimes like this I never thought I'd ever cross the line like this I think that I'm as bad as they all say I'm a profit I'm non-profit I always end up down I made others riches way back when I'm a coward I'm a bastard I'm a murderer I'd give anything to do it all again I never thought I'd see so many fall like that I never knew that I could treat blaseball like that I never thought that I would fill the hall like that I'd give anything to do it all again And I'd give anything to do it all again

Finally enjoying what we’d finished When I happened to see a dot appear ahead Suddenly, all the friends I’d made vanished And I landed here in this hellhole instead It’s murky here You’ve seen worse, so you take it I know now I must help you all remake it I’m new, but I’ve seen so much I’m old, but I was not there I’ve done this once before Cos I’ve seen the The Alternate Here you fight her minions almost every day She says that they’re a fact of life But then “hey here’s another game to play” All the while she just twists the knife That’s not required You’ve seen worse so you take it You’re not pawns I must help you all remake it I’m new, but I’ve seen so much I’m old, but I was not there I’ve done this once before Cos I’ve seen the The Alternate A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there A better world is out there (A better world, a better world) A better world is out there (A better world, a better world) A better world is out there (A better world, a better world) A better world is out there (A better world, a better world wins out)

hexed 03:41
I wanna see you again, I wanna see you again… Immortal Trapped inside a cage Unstable Given scales to weigh The pale horse rides And its rider is I I’ll be back Back to get what’s mine Immaterial rains down Drowning me in souls forevermore Bloodrain gurgles I look back at the ashes on the floor Look to the desert Look to the black sky up above It all comes crashing down It all comes crashing And an interesting development has taken place on the stage as the Fireballs Hex Parker Macmillian with Firewalker. Parker? Parker! Would you mind taking a second to comment on this development? Uh… What? 2 3 4 (cool I wanna see you again, I wanna see you again… I wait Sitting here till the end of my days Whenever I leave It all goes away Incineration Follows me my friends cannot be safe You can’t walk with me I’ll accept my fate I am the destroyer The explosion that will cause the world to end My name is Parker And I’d like to make a few brand new friends I’ll never leave your side Not because we ever had the choice It all comes crashing down It all comes crashing Down

outfield 04:22
Standing in outfield looking at the pitching mound Why did they light you in flames Standing in outfield Looking up in the sky Do you see us play the games We played for you We won for you But they took you away hate the damn gods They’re abusing their power Nearly every single hour we hate the damn gods They’re abusing their power Nearly every single hour they took you to soon Taking everyone And lighting them up in Flames Standing in outfield Looking into the gods eyes All we can see is flame red Wishing they would die Standing in outfield Looking at raining clouds Floods come and douse them Please douse out their eyes They set our friends ablaze So why wont floods drown out their flames And Wash the gods far far far away Like They Burned you Like They stole you like They Took You away hate the damn gods They’re abusing their power Nearly every single hour They took you to soon hate the damn gods They’re abusing their power Nearly every single hour they took you to soon Taking everyone And lighting them up in Flames I’m standing in outfield looking at the pitchers mound Wond’ring why they took my friend I’m standing in outfield Looking up to the sky They should have took me instead I’m standing in outfield Looking up to the sky They should have took me instead

seattle 05:30
Bedsheets In my arms Old clothes on Unknown floors Window facing Busy Streets And I wonder Who can see me And the rain falls The rain falls down And the rain falls The rain falls down I’m a wreck, let’s start again, I Don’t know you, whoever I am Now I’m stuck in this place What can I do, where is my face Misplaced I can’t see Who I’m meant to be And the rain falls The rain falls down And the rain falls The rain falls down And the rain falls The rain falls down And the rain falls The rain falls down

undertaker 03:39
take us under don't give in flip us over without within out from under sweep us away pushing downward keep them at bay weightless floating in the reeds a lotus blooms we grow from your seeds take us under over and out we’ll take over within without out from under falling trust rising upward fade to dust weightless keep our heads above the tides breathe while we can keep the emptiness inside take us under we won’t give in we’ll take over lose to win take us under we won’t give in we’ll take over lose to win

preservation 02:23
We’ve bridged our divide And We are unified We are unanimous and there is nowhere left to hide The forecast is bright The chaos you demand Well we delivered and it’s all going to plan In golden hours: the trail of embers Dark Horizon approaches an end The Desert Conflagration History offers Preservation Stay positive Everyone wins Stay positive Begin If we rise up Or we fall down It’s the same to them (it’s the same to them) If the fire comes or we all drown It’s the same to them (it’s the same) In golden hours: the trail of embers Dark Horizon approaches an end The Desert Conflagration History offers Preservation Go long Go long
