about

In the house of panic, there is no mind. There is no time.

lyrics

The clouds are on fire
And we’re birds in the sky
Alive in the eye of the storm

We’re shot if we falter
This side or the other
Let flowers fall and grow me thorns

These great walls have caved in
Colossus awakened
As eyes open wide in the dust

A flame and a fervor
The hidden observers
Must rise and cross this wild perimeter

You’re the same as me
Caught in between the lines that divide
Right in between
Right in between

We are the new soldiers
We are the new victims
These souls have abandoned their names

Absorbing the venom
Backs turned to heaven
Facing the starving flames

Now you’re before me
In all your glory
Gather me up and carry me on as we tear
right through this wild perimeter

You’re the same as me
Caught in between the lines that divide
Right in between
Right in between

Carry me further
