    The light on the horizon, was brighter yesterday
    The shadows floating over, the skies begin to fade
    You said it was forever, but then it slipped away
    Standing at the end of the final masquerade
    The final masquerade

    that's the chorus

    See it doesn't quite sound like skies to me though, I heard "Sca" which makes me think it's "scars".

    Someone here compared this with The Messenger. wut?

    Sounds more like Leave Out All The Rest to me. A pretty decent ballad. :)

    It's a strange feeling listening to new songs this time.
    The only one that made me shit my pants on first listen was GATS. All the others were "meh" at the first listen, but turned out to be great ones on the second listen.
    Final Masquerade is the perfect example. Not bad at first listen, but strange and not expected. From the title I was expecting a heavy angry song and it turned out to be a GREAT ballad. Really digging' it now.

    I dont know what it is exactly, but "skies" fits the concept of the chorus much better imo

    Skies match with Shadows (Light on the horizon), but scars fading sounds fine as well lol

    cool song
    1. Rebellion. 2. Guilty All The Same. 3. Wastelands. 4. Final Masquerade/Until Its Gone are at the same level. Meh'ish. Yet good songs. It's a bit 'Road Untraveled'ish' with the guitar repeating the vocal melody. Expected more of the song. Still have high hopes for 'Mark The Graves' and 'A Line In The Sand'.

    Absolutely love it. Was on my way back from a party (about 40 mins drive from home) when I saw this was up. I *almost* started speeding to get home more quickly. Loaded it onto the phone and went for another cruise with the windows down and volume up. Definitely my favourite from the album so far (Rebellion 2nd, UIG 3rd, Wastelands 4th and GATS 5th for me).

    LP songs are like that. First time I heard MtM I thought it was kinda boring and the stand out tracks were no more sorrow and Given up. Few more listens and I actually think they were amongst the weaker tracks on it compared to the others. Very rarely has a new song immediately blown me away with excitement.

    I loved this song and I know it will grow on me so bad. This is beautiful and has even more hit potencial than Until It's Gone.

    Nice melody, beautiful lyrics, everything sounds perfect to me. This song really makes me fell good.

    JUST BEAUTIFUL

    EDIT: If your favorites LP songs are the ballads from MTM, Burning In The Skies, CoG for example, YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR MIND! :D

    I heard "ars" so I just assumed "stars". Could be "scars", could be "stars", could be "skies". Guess we'll wait for the official lyric video, probably coming Monday.

    jus the analog recording is one of the things nt helping with this record like wastelands live is more epic than on album xD , final masquerade is catchy but the trending thing in the album of having the songs name in chorus and constant repetition is a bit of a downer but i like it but the whole album experience should be better :D

    It says "skies".
    I am pretty sure about that. Otherwise it would not really fit the context (horizon, shadows, light)
