Alter Bridge – Last Rites Lyrics

Last Rites Lyrics – Alter Bridge

I’ve seen the future
Yeah the writing’s on the wall
And it don’t look that good to me
Tear at the sutures
Put in place to save us all
Well that’s your right but wait and see

You don’t know
Where this goes
Wait until tomorrow
You don’t know
Where this goes
One day you will see

There’ll be no last rites
The future’s all but set in stone
Say goodbye
To the only way of life you’ve ever known

Life you’ve ever known
Life you’ve ever known
Life you’ve ever known

Protest the boundaries
Put in place that hold you down
Scream in defiance storm the gates
Put out a bounty
That might serve you well for now
But in the end you’ll seal our fate

You don’t know
Where this goes
Wait until tomorrow
Oh no
Here we go
Again
There’ll be no last rites
The future’s all but set in stone
Say goodbye
To the only way of life you’ve known
There’s no time
To wallow in the undertow
The last rites
Are screaming in the distance
Here we go
Here we go
Here we go

You had to have it your way now we know

Ok you’ve got your rights
But don’t wrong tomorrow
I guess we all lose sight
With no one left to follow
Here me laugh now as
Embers fall like snow
Nothing matters now
Well I told you so

There’ll be no last rites
The future’s all but set in stone
Say goodbye
To the only way of life you’ve known
There’s no time
To wallow in the undertow
The last rites
Are screaming in the distance
Here we go
Here me laugh now as
Embers fall like snow
Nothing matters now
Well I told you so
