lyrics

The final peace
last left in a stellar game
strung up on the butcher’s slab
Life and death, feel the same
Our savage foes
Our persistent enemy
Intentions unknown
Paranoid apathy
Beneath the soil
Our mission is pursued
Endless toil to stop
a violent creation
We know not where
this darkness leads
protect the innocent
Ignore our own needs
Inphasable
Spit in the eye of the captor
Unbreakable
Defiance in the face of capture

Look up, tell me
what do you see
Four lights, brightly gleaming
Look again, in a state of distress
the fifth will appear if you value
your senses

Follow the chain
chain of command
at the end your body hangs
And the promise weighs you down
On your pain the future rests
Follow the chain
chain of command
at the end your body hangs
Sacrifice of mind and flesh
Is the price of peaceful

Enveloped in
A shroud of procedure
Protected by abstract concepts
Reality, strips me naked
and agony is thrust into my brain
Believe above all else
So I was trained
The rules call
for your safe return
This prison, deflects the light
The law, made meaningless
by indifference
Undeniable
Crisis grips my mind
Insatiable
No hope over fate tonight

Look up, tell me
what do you see
Four lights, brightly gleaming
You weak pathetic fool
what can you gain
Say there are five
away goes the pain

Follow the chain
chain of command
at the end your body hangs
And the promise weighs you down
On your pain the future rests
Follow the chain
chain of command
at the end your body hangs
Sacrifice of mind and flesh
Is the price of peaceful

An illusion
What I cannot say
The question tortures me
I want to believe
believe in what I see
I want to believe
The question tortures me
As hands drag me away
I want to believe
As freedom draws so near
The answer is clear

NOOOOO

There are four lights
Only four lights
There are four lights
Only four lights

(Solo: K. Losinske)

There are four lights
Only four lights
There are four lights
Only four lights

(Solo: S. Delorey)

At the end, I saw the gleaming
of phantom thoughts
Five lights mocking me
Exceeding the threshold
of pain and will
But the chain is unbroken
The chain is unbroken
