ROME’S ABOUT TO FALL
by Mark McCrite (c)2014 Vermiscious Music, BMI

Here we are again
Starting at the end
It’s hard to find a friend
When it’s over

Nothing left to say
We’ve thrown it all away
We’ve sold our souls today
To buy tomorrow

One step into the mouth of madness
One step into the dead of night
We’re out on our own
Just trying to get it right

We don’t know where this is going
But this ain’t how it’s supposed to be
We always thought that we could have it all
But now Rome’s about to fall

Now you’d like to try
To kiss it all goodbye
You’re living in a lie
But you don’t know it

You don’t understand
Why you’re never in demand
And it got so out of hand
In the end

One step into the mouth of madness
One step into the dead of night
We’re out on our own
Just trying to get it right

We don’t know where this is going
But this ain’t how it’s supposed to be
We always thought that we could have it all
But now Rome’s about to fall
