Lyrics

Original

You know every world will have its end (have its end)
And I'm here to prove it all to you
I am who you don't think I am (think I am)
All wrapped up in my evil plan
I can taste the day (taste the day)
Savor night (savor night)
Spells beyond you
As I watch you crawl
Do you dare to fight (dare to fight)
Evil's might (evil's might)
I'll be the last one standing
In a flash of light
My eyes (my eyes) are filled with curiosity
You think (you think) that you have power over me
In this life (this life), there's no room for you and me
So, turn away or face this day with me (face the day with me)
With me (face the day with me)
You know, every world will have its test (have its test)
Don't blame for what I have become
You know every world will come to end (come to end)
And I'll create your final rest
I can taste the day (taste the day)
Savor night (savor night)
Scream your dreams
As you dare to fight, dare to fight
My eyes (my eyes) are filled with curiosity
You think (you think) that you have power over me
In this life (this life), there's no room for you and me
So, turn away or face this day with me (face the day with me)
With me (face the day with me)
With me (face the day with me)
With me...
[Guitar solo]
I can taste the day (taste the day)
Savor night (savor night)
Scream your dreams
As you dare to fight, dare to fight
My eyes (my eyes) are filled with curiosity
You think (you think) that you have power over me
In this life (this life) there's no room for you and me
So, turn away or face this day with me (face the day with me)
With me...

Crush 40 Version

You know (You know) every world will have its end (have its end)
And I'm here (I'm here) to prove it all to you
I am (I am) who you don't think I am (think I am)
All wrapped up in my evil plan
I can taste the day (taste the day)
Savor night (savor night)
Spells beyond you
As I watch you crawl
Do you dare to fight (dare to fight)
Evil's might (evil's might)
I'll be the last one standing

You think (you think) that you have power over me
In this life (this life), there's no room for you and me
