lyrics

Say you’ve had enough
Still you find more
All our monsters on the list
You gotta be the warrior

And you’re there twitching as you sleep
Eyes are open, grinding teeth
Try to wake you from the deep
It’s always deeper than it seems

And your nightmare’s alive
Battlefields neverending
Where creatures dark materialize
Shadow rifts ever mending

There is so much that must be done
I know this, I don’t intrude
Feed the mission and do right
As the long rest tempts you

Sometimes we lead it closer
Let it in through the window
Try again to take it on
With daggers under the pillows

And you’re bound to fix it all
And you’re right to want us free
Hilt in hand, ready to defend
But you can’t yet let me

Storm clouds passing by
Under lids on fire

End all
Be all

No destruction shakes your drive
You’re experienced in pain
Serene in purpose, analyze
Through our tears, all hope retained

Pressure building cautiously
You to tend to one, another bleeds
Use everything to halt the flow
I wonder how long you can go!

Undertaking all for all
Restless remnants bound to life

And your nightmare’s alive
Battlefields neverending
Where creatures dark materialize
Shadow rifts ever mending

And you’re bound to fix it all
And you’re right to want us free
Hilt in hand, ready to defend
But you can’t yet let me
