Emotion triggers the end of the world
Into the depths of darkness I cautiously tread
Unaware and afraid
I must become the person I am not

And so we fall onto their blades
All for what?
Here’s to the future

I’ve been denying this choice I must make
Bring in the veil over my sunken face
And while the shadows that you gave are placated
Are now the ruins of this war you created
It ricochets just like the bullets you fire
Sentence others to a life on the pyre
And all the people at your feet are exalted
The blood on your hands is what you wanted
I must become the person I am not

You led a lie and we became
Mesmerised by lights
So we are no more alive
Hollowed eyes gaze upon the sky
We are the warriors

And so we fall onto their blades
All for what?
This is the future
It’s all you have left
To climb the final wall into the dark
With a final resistance to overthrow them all
