Lyrics

1. FIRE!

Fire!

This place scorched beyond recognition
Chaos reigns
See the ruin around us
Feel confusion within

They came for us
Set our world ablaze
One million dead
Is this the price we pay?
Up from the ashes
We will appear
Repay the favor
The war you want is here

If you rule the air
We will take the ground
Pull you down and strip you off your precious crown
How does it feel to know
The power has its limits?
Your kingdom has an end

No reason for life
Slaves set free

They came for us
Set our world ablaze
One million days
Is this the price we pay?
Up from the ashes
We will appear
Repay the favor
The war you want is here

Fire!

They came for us
Set our world ablaze
One million days
Is this the price we pay?
Up from the ashes
We will appear
Repay the favor
The war you want is here




2. BLACKOUT

How can you heart what you need to hear
When you have never been told you're wrong?
You see the world in black and white
Blind to all color

You are lost inside your mind
The walls you build to confine must reconcile
Blackout. Awaken in the twenty first century
I'm caught between who they expect me to be
The heart of an animal or the mind of a machine

How can you see what you want to see
If your eyes haven't been opened at all
I don't have the answers
I just know it's not as simple as right or wrong

You are lost inside your mind
The walls you build to confine must reconcile
Blackout. Awaken in the twenty first century
I'm caught between who they expect me to be
The heart of an animal or the mind of a machine

No room for maybe
Afraid of the unknown
So we rank and file
To rationalize our existence

Blackout
Awaken




3. LIMITLESS

Time and time again
I see myself through the naked eye
I've walked to the edge of myself
Screaming to this empty space

Am i giving up?

Jump
Take a leap of faith for me (jump)
Search within and you will see (jump)
That this path is destiny (jump)
And the truth that sets you free

Easy to say the faith will not fray
But i'm hanging on by a thread
Fears from which i cannot hide
The dead parts inside i can't revive

I've got nothing left
But i'm not giving up

Jump
Take a leap of faith for me (jump)
Search within and you will see (jump)
That this path is destiny (jump)
And the truth that sets you free

When it's all said and done
You are the only one
Holding you back

Jump
Take a leap of faith for me (jump)
Search within and you will see (jump)
That this path is destiny (jump)
And the truth that sets you free

Jump




4. DARKEST

Please take me back to the start
Young with hopes and dreams
That supersede the impossible
Suspending fear and doubt
For a chance to feel

Alive
We live and die by our convictions
Our dreams achieved through sacrifice

I know i can't go back
I'm too far away to feel
Trapped in an hourglass
Now there is nothing left to feel

Please bring me back to the heart
This distance numbing me
I am becoming a shell
Of who i was meant to be

I know i can't go back
I'm too far away to feel
Trapped in an hourglass
Now there is nothing left to feel

Alive
We live and die by our convictions
Our dreams achieved through sacrifice




5. MONUMENTS FAIL

Towers all around us crumbling
They're the monuments we once built
Finding it harder to believe in something greater
Greater than ourselves

Dig deep and you will find it in your soul
The darkness lives within us all
Do you even recognize yourself

Ignoring the path they paved
Our fallen heroes
Destroying their life in days
That took a lifetime
When heroes die

Dig deep and you will find it in your soul
The temptation calls to us all
I saw myself in you
Do i even recognize myself

Ignoring the path they paved
Our fallen heroes
Destroying their life in days
That took a lifetime
When heroes die

The messenger may fall
Their legacy must live on for all to hear
Let it make you strong
Because even our idols fall

Ignoring the path they paved
Our fallen heroes
Destroying their life in days
That took a lifetime
So let your heroes die




6. IN JUSTICE

Hey!

Let's go!

Bite your tongue and seize your thoughts
This will not end well for you

Imply innocence
Defy righteousness
Define arrogance

You hide behind your selfish lies,
Cover up your heinous crimes
You can't run from me

Now i ask and you will answer
I will not concede
Who are you to play god
Dispose of who you please

Imply innocence
Defy righteousness
Define arrogance

You hide behind your selfish lies,
Cover up your heinous crimes
You can't run from me

I live a life with one foot in the grave
It is justice that i crave
You can't run from me

Justice comes for you

You hide behind your selfish lies,
Cover up your heinous crimes
You can't run from me

I live a life with one foot in the grave
It is justice that i crave
You can't run from me

Hey!




7. BROTHERS

Looking back i remember feeling stronger
We must have been invincible
Join the war for integrity's sake
Hoping our presence would be enough

Take to the air
The siren sounds and duty is calling
Meet our enemies there
Praying we will make it back alive

As we soar across the sky
I can't help but wonder why
As our enemies draw near
Our hearts are void of all fear

Memories flash before our eyes
Our last thoughts before we die
Recalling what had brought us here
As you plummet out of sight

I watched you fall to your grave
I'd fight by your side in hell
To bring you back
Brother!

Smoldering wreckage is all that's left
Is this your reward?
I never thought we would kill for our beliefs
I never thought we would have to pay with our lives

As we soar across the sky
I can't help but wonder why
As our enemies draw near
Our hearts are void of all fear

Memories flash before our eyes
Our last thoughts before we die
Recalling what had brought us here
As you plummet out of sight

I watched you fall to your grave
I'd fight by your side in hell
To bring you back
Brother!

Freedom comes at a price
Your life now part of the debt
Brother give me the strength to fly on
When the air raid sirens blare

Brother!




8. DEATH CYCLE

Here we are barking up a storm
About what will be and what will come
But nothing ever advances
In result of all our hatred

Now the harvest is at hand
Diplomacy can't save this land
It's never enough until we've gone too far

Stir the lake of fire
Let the sky fall
Fear will fend them off
So bombs away

It's life for life
It's blood for blood
Hatred perpetuated

History repeats
And the tradition lives on
To give the enemy a face
Other than our own

Stir the lake of fire
Let the sky fall
Fear will fend them off
Death comes for you all

Stir the lake of fire
Watch your city burn
Crushing their resolve
So bombs away




9. NO PEACE

Where am i?
Who am i?
Trade me for apathy

My flame is fading away
My fear is increasing
My patience fleeting from me
Faith is far out of my reach

I'm losing hope
My peace is gone
Where am i?
I've lost my home

On the front lines i've seen
No end in sight
Just a wounded soldier
Waiting to die

I am not your hero
I will let you down
I can't save you
And you can't save me

I'm a fallen fighter
With nothing left
My beliefs are dying
I am not your hero
So save yourself
I have let you down




10. MIDNIGHT

Countdown to midnight
Mindless machines gave the order
To murder the innocent
Wake up, the dream is over
And now it's up to me

All of my life
I have raced against the clock
But now i feel time staring back at me
This is greater than who i am
The event that will change the course of history

Tick tock

Countdown to midnight
One millions lives at stake
The encasement is a shrine
And the wires intertwine
To worship destruction
And the death of every line

Written by heroes
To save us from the day
We lose all our faith
And the world is set on fire
Burns so bright
It's seen across the world

The clock strikes twelve
To all our fears
Sound the alarm
Because i failed
To deliver us
From hell on earth
There is no escape
So make your peace
I tried my best
To stop this
Their plan in place
Their heinous crime
A shot that's heard
Around the world
Let it be known
This is murder
