Wayward stranger
Lost inside
A dark and hazy dream

Too late now
Water rising
And we're in too deep

Come with me
Take my hand
We'll travel through the stream

The burning
Feel the fire deep inside of me

And I know that we will make it right
In time it's true we'll win the fight
But for now let's cherish what we have
For blood will soon be drawn
It's the calm before storm

Hold your loved ones
Say goodbye
The light will soon be gone

No running
Stand your ground
We will be fighting on

The moment
is at hand
The army's closing in

Stay focused
Steel yourself
Come morning
It begins
