First Single From "American Poet Pt.1"

Lyrics

This is the Night

(Written and Performed by Michael Jones)



Where you gonna go child

Where you gonna go child

Where you gonna go when tomorrow comes

Where you gonna go child



Dead lights in a fading city

Dreamers in a crossfire wind

Poets scared of what they are feeling

Knowing something is about to begin



Old roads rising into the blackness

Strapped heat from a smoking gun

Ice stare like a bloodshot rocket

No one cares if we lost or we won



This is the night when it all comes down

This the night it goes and comes around

This is the night the blood is on the crown

This is the night we burn it to the ground



Hate burns like the eyes of a demon

Love died forty miles ago

This is a blaze of furious glory

This is a madman’s opening show



Rising up just to tear down tomorrow

Nothing left of what’s wrong and right

A devil’s smile in the eyes of children

We’re all dyin’ so why not tonight



Chorus



This is the place

The ending race

An unsmasked face

Was it all a waste?

Tonight’s the night

We take the crown

Eight billion blades

Strike the masters down



We’ve got tonight

One final roar

All that we are, till we are no more



We’ve got tonight

One final roar

All that we are, till we are no more



Where you gonna go child,

Where you gonna go child,

Where you gonna go when tomorrow comes.

Where you gonna go child
