Track Name: Hold On
When they steal it away what will you do?
Where you turn on that day will say much for you
Will you fall to your knees and scream out why?
Or will you raise yourself up and shake down the sky?

It's not your fight
So just hold on tight
It's not your fight
So just hold on

Bring down the walls
Bring down the walls
And keep your mind on the work at hand
Though it's ugly and cruel
And they'll remember your name
Though that's all that's left of you

[Quiet now]

It's not your fight
So just hold on tight
It's not your fight
So just hold on
Track Name: In The Fire
I won’t give up
I won’t give up, come whatever danger may
Though the path fades before me
Though the ground beneath me burns away

I was born in the fire
And I live in the fire now
Ash my crown
I was born in the fire
So I’ll live in the fire now
Until the sun grows cold

Don’t think I don’t see it
Don’t think I don’t see it
What fate plans for me
Don’t think I’ll just stand here, accept it
Take these chains that you offer
When I believe that I’m free

You lift me up
To give me further to fall

I was born in the fire
And I live in the fire now
Ash my crown
I was born in the fire
So I’ll live in the fire now
Until the sun grows cold

And though the smoke will rise
And choke my sight
I’m not finished yet
No these eyes
Still see through you
Track Name: Arrows
Seems like winter is going to last
Sky grows dark over the mountain pass

Calling
I'm reaching out
And there's no
And there's no doubt

Feels like falling, this weightless tread
Swirl like smoke inside my head
Feels like falling

And in my dreams we're flying free
Sunlight gold upon the sea

Falling
I'm reaching out
And there's no
And there's no doubt
They warm like fire, hold my aim true
No cell, no cage they can't break through
Like arrows straight they fly to you
Track Name: Lights
I see you, but I can't reach you
And I can't even speak my name
Do you know me, do you remember?
Do I see a flicker of a flame?

And lights rush in
And there's a storm that's breaking
A storm that's breaking
Born far away, a rumble on a foreign shore

And lights rush in
Is this my heart that's breaking
My heart that's breaking
Or is this just how it feels

To start again

And lights rush in
And there's a storm that's breaking
A storm that's breaking
Born far away, a rumble on a foreign shore

And lights rush in
I see your heart awakening
Your heart awake and you know
This is how it feels

To start again

And we start again

It's been a long and lonely ride, love
Now I don't want to leave your side, no
It's been a long and lonely ride, love
Now I don't want to leave your side

And we start again
