lyrics

Against this whirlwind of relentless carnage;
Bury your roots deep into the earth.
Hold your own.
Taking every hit one after the other,
You start to feel fire growing inside, still:
Hold your own.

Find your strength to guard these inhibitions.
Now is the time to discover your own way out.
The answers are right in front of your bloodshot eyes.
The last puzzle piece is ready to solve:

“I am a stone, flowing through you.
I am a stone, flowing through swells of angry sea.
An endless act of nature’s fury,
The raging current tries so hard just to seize me,
To take me with it back down into the void.
This will not be the end. I must move onward.
This will not be the end. I must move on.”
In everything that I’ve found beautiful,
I understand it begins in the dark.
Don’t take your last breath,
Not until you conquer your own fear of the abyss.

The ground quakes in an effort to shake you,
You stand firm just to carry on.
Hold your own.
Taking every step one after the other.
You are defiant to the bitter end.
Hold your own.
Pathways to truth aren’t free of complications.
The road less traveled isn’t one that you’ll soon forget.
The answers are right in front of your bloodstained hands.
The last puzzle piece is ready to solve:

Don’t take your last breath,
You must conquer the abyss.
