lyrics

From the mistakes of our forefathers
To me it seems like we did not learn a single thing
In our world there are just a few that you can trust
But therefore you should trust them with your life
Unbalanced powers, the desire for endless strength
Will guide your way right to the tombs
Of a thousand so called individuals
That made the same mistakes that you're about to make

But now a storm comes up by the voice of a thousand
And it will crush everything within its path

You thought you'd reach everything in time
You were up to make it all just fine
And now it's the walls that are closing in

Mistakes were made with every word we spoke
But at the end of the day it's something different that counts
It's the confidence of not being alone

'Everyday we're coping with different challenges
We all get put down at some point and there's always that one moment when we ask ourselves if this is all worth it
But keep in mind: it's the things that make you smile, the pursuit of happiness and not the things that you're afraid of, which make life valuable
So when you get that feeling of perfection, just hold on to it and make it last forever in your mind
And that's what keeps us alive as a family'

Take that last, take that last
Take that last medal off of my chest
This is not the time for heroes
This is not the time for badges and hierarchy
[Stay strong]
Stay strong unto these shallow creeks of our re-proved unity
Forever
Kept in my heart
In sense of reconciliation

Arise my brothers of presumption, perpetuation
Amongst the tides of deceit we'll overcome

Arise my brothers of presumption, perpetuation
Amongst the tides of their greed we will overcome

Mist ascended from the valley and my heart stopped beating once
Though my eyes are still focused and my fist remains clenched tight

Take that last, take that last
Take that last medal off of my chest
This is not the time for heroes
This is not the time for badges and hierarchy
[Stay strong]
Stay strong unto these shallow creeks of our re-proved unity
Forever
Kept in my heart
In sense of love

From the shades of deception you seize but we're immortal for now
