lyrics

Let me tell you who I am.
I’ll write the story in my blood.
My past self doesn’t give a damn.
They died alongside everyone.

Silence left me terrified
but it brought me back to life.
In the dark we'll open our eyes.

And here we are.
Alive so far.
Burning out like shooting stars.
But withering,
I've broken free of a curse that nearly killed me.

We don’t fight for vengeance
We’re bleeding from our hearts.
The nightmare lies behind us.
It’s too late for us to restart.
But here is where good men come to die.
A price paid for my blind sacrifice.

Stumbling through a lucid dream,
challenged by the toxic air.
The battle lives inside of me.
I see its shadows everywhere.

I was once buried alive.
I still don't know how I survived.
And fire doesn't burn so well
after you've dragged yourself from Hell.

But here you are.
My guiding star.
What lies behind my beating heart.
We haven't died.
Burning inside, reclaiming fragments of our lives.

We don’t fight for vengeance
We’re bleeding from our hearts.
The nightmare lies behind us.
It’s too late for us to restart.
But here is where good men come to die.
A price paid for my blind sacrifice.

Seconds are abstracted.
We’re measured by our breaths.
But I’m not disillusioned.
We’re not fighting to the death.

I can’t tell where the days end.
The future’s infinite.
But we’re in this together so I’m less afraid of it.

We don’t fight for vengeance
We’re bleeding from our hearts.
The nightmare lies behind us.
Now is our moment to restart.
Here is where evil comes to die.
Here is where the brave come to fight.
Today is our last sacrifice.
The road towards our beckoning light.
