Mark Morton & Chester Bennington – Cross Off

Cross off

[Introduction:]
{Cross off the days gone,
cross off the days gone.}
Gone by !

[1st Verse:]
{I'm} Wasting away our self inflicted slow decay.
What should have been, what never was,
became the end for both of us.

[1st Pre-Chorus:]
Heavy is the hand that points the finger (finger).
Heavy is the heart that's filled with anger (anger).
So lay down to waste
years you've decided to erase
and cross off the days.

[Chorus:]
So, black out and hide behind the lines.
Keep staring down the sun and note {that} the
light will finally blind your eyes. It's the end,
so cross off the days gone by.
Cross off the days gone by.
Cross off the days gone BY !

[2nd Verse:]
Cutting you free:
the phantom that was part of me.
You have lived, you have cost.
The separation's worth the cost.

[2nd Pre-Chorus:]
Heavy are the voices that go unspoken (unspoken).
Heavy are the promises now broken (broken).
Well, you burn down the chased,
upon destruction in your waste.
Cross off the days.

[Chorus:]
So, black out and hide behind the lines.
Keep staring down the sun and note {that} the
light will finally blind your eyes. It's the end,
so cross off the days gone by.
Cross off the days gone by.
Cross off the days gone...

...GONE BY !!

[Bridge:]
{I'm} making my way back from the madness !
Shooting my thoughts through the blackness
and the sadness ! But the fact is:
I'm shooting through words like a clenched fist !
Fuck sanity ! I wanna bleed !
Can't kill the pain,
it's everything,
it's all I feel,
it's what I breathe.
Through the hate, I breath into what I need !

[3rd Pre-Chorus:]
Heavy is the head that points the finger (finger).
Heavy is the heart that's filled with anger (anger).
Did you survey everything laid to waste
and cross off the days ?

[Outro:]
So, black out and hide behind the lines.
Keep staring down the sun and note {that} the
light will finally blind your eyes. It's the end,
so cross off the days gone by.
Cross off the days gone by.
Cross off the days gone BY !
