The countdown’s begun
Forcing the hand to finish what it started
Patience wearing thin, there are no second chances
Leave your mark, or be forgotten
Like the rest of them, just like the best of them
With passion they bled for, they bleed for something more
There’s no fruition for the absent
You fear, but fear not
You could be the exception
Fear not, you could be the one
Prove yourself to yourself
What do you have to lose?
There’s nothing left to lose
Show all the world, that you are prosperous
Your virtue is true, and hatred will perish
Hatred will perish, and burn in the light of the sun
We all fight for what we believe in
We all fight for what we need and
If we’re all just a breath away from death, why put it to rest?
Never put it to rest
No longer anchored, this ship is setting sail
For there are shores to be discovered
Sail on, sail
I’ll say this one more fucking time
I have been there through the fire, through the storm
Light the torch
I’ve been through hell and been reborn
Light the torch
In this game of three to one, I have won
Sail on
Never spoken before, let these be my parting words
Sail on
