New Year's Day
Black Veil Brides Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

On the graves of the ones remembered
In a desert we call home
All the slaves of the cold December
Find a voice to call their own

Stand up we are united
In the eyes of the greatest storm
Line up we are ignited
This world will be reborn in
Five, four, three, two, one

This is new year's day
So rise from the ashes
Faith will find a way
Like lightning crashes

We'll keep marching on and on and on
It's new year's day
So rise from the ashes

Ring a bell so the serpent hears us
Let her know that we're tried and true
No the beasts, they won't get near us
And we're not scared of you

Light 'em up now
Start the count down in
Five, four, three, two, one
Let's go!

This is new year's day
So rise from the ashes
Faith will find a way
Like lightning crashes
We'll keep marching on and on and on

It's new year's day
So rise from the ashes

Let the eagle fly
Freedom in the night
Let the eagle fly
Legends never die

Five, four, three, two, one

This is new year's day
So rise from the ashes
Faith will find a way
Like lightning crashes

We'll keep marching on and on and on
It's new year's day
So rise from the ashes

Ooh
So rise from the ashes
