about

inspired by Rick Riordan's The House of Hades

lyrics

The air is thick and smoky. Salvation’s in a dream.
I walked for miles and miles until the road blurred ahead of me.
The ashes settle down like poison in our lungs.
If I tell you I love you, will dying be sweeter for us?

But I see you and it’s the only thing that’s keeping me alive.
I can feel your hand and suddenly I’m not so terrified.
And I’d give anything to ease the panic in your eyes.
Into the darkness we will fight.

I hear the monsters howling visceral agony.
Your hands are growing cold. I won’t let them take you from me.
I’m slipping from my head. I’m anchored by your skin.
It’s a nightmarish game, but, together, will win.

‘Cause I see you and it’s the only thing that’s keeping me alive.
And I can feel your hand and suddenly I’m not so terrified.
And I’d give anything to ease the panic in your eyes.
Into the darkness we will fight.

The smoke is billowing
and now it’s hard to see.
Please don’t let go.
The panic’s slipping over, caging me.

Blackened waves crashing through,
I’m losing grip of you.
Please stay with me.
Follow my voice and we will make it through.

‘Cause I see you and it’s the only thing that’s keeping me alive.
And I can feel your hand and suddenly I’m not so terrified.
And I’d give anything to ease the panic in your eyes.
Into the darkness you and I.
Into the darkness you and I.
