Prologue 01:42
2.
Trying not to breathe too loud They can smell the fear Trying not to look like I’m alone in this But when it comes down to it We’re all just sitting by Waiting for the time when we can look you in the eye Reaching out for me I try to move away But memories make me stay behind And now I wake every day Wishing I was someone else The poison inside that I thought I destroyed Breaking through again Now you’ve come alive Try to fight through the dead of the night Now you’ve come alive I can’t find you there Something’s missing, something close to me has gone I can’t move forward with you holding onto everything Now you’ve come alive Try to fight through the dead of the night Now you’ve come alive I can’t find you there I can’t find you Now you’ve come alive Try to fight through the dead of the night Now you’ve come alive I can’t find you there Try to find you again in the dead of the night I can’t find you there

When everything fades, the stage is set The steps we take bring us closer to the threat The city I see at the edge of the light Foreboding, it seems the only way to go In time you’ll see The renegades are in control We hide from their eyes, they’ll kill who they find They scream for release, they’ll get inside your mind The only move I dare to make To look around, and try to stay awake In time you’ll see The renegades are in control Through broken stone, they rule with fear Upon their throne

Fog of War 02:38
The colours draining from your face Make it easier to see the cracks, The breaks in your wall The feelings bleeding from this place Make me feel so lost, like I don’t know Where I’ve ended up We suffocate inside the fog of war So blinded by our hatred, no We’ve fallen far behind The things we used to want to be So long ago We’re falling further through And in the hole we’ll find our grave Our grave We suffocate inside the fog of war So blinded by our hatred, no We suffocate inside the fog of war So blinded by our hatred now I think we’ll never know Whose side you kept Uncertainty has taken us
5.
I never wanted to be the one That you rejected out of hand And now I’m fragile, I feel my heart slowing down Let us all await the day When this will all go away And we can go back to find the things that we have left Somehow in my heart I know Something dark has stopped the flow And now I’m breaking I feel my heart’s going cold And every day I feel it more The pain I knew is coming home This was just a dream so now awaken I’ll be at your side I never wanted to see the time That we would have to walk the line And we were tested and shown that we weren’t meant to be Somehow in my mind I know The things that you don’t have to show And now I’m broken I feel my heart turn to stone And every day I feel it more The pain I knew is coming home This was just a dream so now awaken I’ll be at your side And every day I feel it more The pain I knew is coming home This is not a dream so now awaken No one’s at your side
6.
The curtain falls But the story’s far from over Even as the day turns into night I find you’re the enemy So find your own saviour Because I can’t help you So find your own saviour Because I can’t help you I don’t know why I held you close I should’ve known your secrets Even as the past falls far away It remains, you’re the enemy So find your own saviour Because I can’t help you So find your own saviour Because I can’t help you Push it away Push it away Push it away Push it away Skies will open up Giving us the chance to make a difference What will you do? And this will be the last time that you can hide Don’t run away What will you do? So find your own saviour Because I can’t help you So find your own saviour Because I can’t help you I can’t help you

Drone 04:00
Picking up what you threw down, It’s never quite as easy as it sounds Letting go of what we had, You never thought it meant so much to lose To lose You never think that you could be betrayed Until the second safety slips away Into a black and broken state You’ll never know what you lost that day With all the colours gone, It seems the whole world has turned to stone My eyes in monochrome, Just like them, you’ve made me a drone A drone You never think that you could be betrayed Until the second safety slips away Into a black and broken state You’ll never know what you lost that day You tried to bury me alive But I have nothing left to give
8.
You and I, we were meant to be together But you were a spy and I didn’t know what to do Bite on the wound and the animals run for cover Not for a minute did I pause and think of you Please don’t fight your destiny You can’t change it One of these days we’ll come for you Close your eyes, this might hurt a little Try to keep up, don’t spin this out of control You don’t know how many times I’ve broken But maybe now you’ll get some sort of clue Please don’t fight your destiny You can’t change it One of these days we’ll come for you Lock yourself up in the dark We will find you One of these days will be your last
9.
We’ve been preparing for this moment All our lives We’re going to show you what you’ve done Just to feel alive We’ve done so much in the dark Trying to hide our shame Now finally we can make our move It’s time to play our game The further in we go The stronger we become, you see The raid has just begun We fight with all our soul We’ll make it to the end, you see The raid has just begun You thought to shake the very earth; turn it cold and red So unopposed you did your work, and the people bled We’ve done so much in the dark, trying to fight our shame Now finally we can make our move We won’t play your game The further in we go The stronger we become, you see The raid has just begun We fight with all our soul We’ll make it to the end, you see The raid has just begun (The raid has just begun) The further in we go (The raid has just begun) The stronger we become, you see The raid has just begun (The raid has just begun) We fight with all our soul (You better get your gun) We’ll make it to the end, you see The raid has just begun

This pressure building up, I haven’t felt for so long It’s as if something dark is heading straight for us I am not anyone deserving sympathy All you think you know Could not be further from the truth I will not let go if it kills me now In the dark you’ll find Everything I’ve kept inside Your disappearance fuels The paranoia here It’s as if you didn’t care and wished us dead Or something more I am not anyone deserving sympathy All you think you know Could not be further from the truth I will not let go if it kills me now In the dark you’ll find Everything I’ve kept inside When the screaming stops, and the smoke all clears I will shake my fears, and I will pledge to start again When I think I’ve changed, I’ll come back to you Say I’ve made it through And things will never be the same I am not anyone deserving sympathy All you think you know Could not be further from the truth I will not let go if it kills me now In the dark you’ll find Everything I’ve kept inside Everything I’ve kept inside

Electric 03:30
When thoughts and memories collide I wish I’d known to turn the tide The hole gaping up at me Till suddenly I couldn’t breathe And watched you go And watched you go But now that all I loved is gone And I’ve been left with only one I find myself back here; where it began It’s never been unclear till now I watch you go I watch you go The wind grows strong Until you’re gone You know that I’ll be here Waiting for you You know that I’ll be here So please don’t go Please don’t go
13.
I know it’s hard but you have to read between the lines And when the sky comes down just don’t lose your mind Of all the good that’s left in you There’s not enough to make it through And when your darkest fears come true There’s nothing you can do I’m losing my senses, they’re fleeing from me I’m losing everything I have, like I can’t believe There’s only one way to turn, just look in your heart Trust the feelings there, don’t go back to the start Beneath the shade of your eyes I’m trapped in the blue And for the dark days ahead I’ll forget what I can’t undo Of all the good that’s left in you There’s not enough to make it through And when your darkest fears come true There’s nothing you can do I’m losing my senses, they’re fleeing from me I’m losing everything I have, like I can’t believe I’m breaking the surface, I’m trying to breathe I’ve broken all my promises, like I can’t believe Oh / The seconds tick away Oh / The colours fade to gray Oh / The echoes in my head Oh / This is not the end I’m losing my senses, they’re fleeing from me I’m losing everything I have, like I can’t believe I’m fighting for purpose, the darker side of me Is growing stronger every day Like I can not believe
