From the album Non Sequitur

Lyrics

Into The Breach

Just gimme the weapon
Get out of the way
I'll do it my goddamned self
'cause you're too scared to die today
Cower in the corner
Your secret's safe with me
You'll take the accolades when I vanquish the enemy

I peel back the lines just one blow at a time
live the lie, when I die
steal my legacy

I live on the front lines
favored by angry Gods
succeed me on the throne,
your crown weighed down by albatross
I'll face the nightmare
Stay hid inside your dream
so useless on the day of wrath and reckoning

It is beyond comprehension
choosing security
I'll trade my life for eternity

As they fear me, pushing through the pain and misery
I have learned that outside your cage I'm free
all you'll see in your reflection isn't true
for you know that this greatness wasn't you

Eight times fallen, nine times rise
false glory fades as your soul begins to retrograde
and on the deathbed,
a spirit cannot rest
that traded luxury for sins left unconfessed

In war and peace, we die
you chose the coward's life
a soul dissatisfied
all cowards live this life

It is beyond comprehension
choosing security
I'll trade my life (I'll trade my life)
for eternity

As they fear me, pushing through the pain and misery
I have learned that outside your cage I'm free
all you'll see in your reflection isn't true
for you know that this greatness wasn't you

If you feel fear, then fear will feed
ascendants arise in bravery
'cause if you fight, you'll never die
I'm still alive
