Broken silences rain on concrete hearts
cracked walls still hold vigil
sirens creep across the land
corruption stains the hand

of the ones who must lead

Through the pain, we will ascend
through the sorrow, we will rise
through the echoes, you will hear us
we will not fall
we will not fall

tenebrous intent seeps from your eyes
you have lost your souls
to greed, and to the power
which will wane, you will fall

and we will take the lead, again

Through the pain, we will ascend
through the sorrow, we will rise
through the echoes, you will hear us
we will stand tall
we will not fall
