Broken by the dreams we shared
We stand outside the town
Where we were born
The night is silent
But our breath and the crackle of the torches in our hands
As we remember the days
When we were young, naive about what we’d become

We don’t want to see
What we’re meant to see
We don’t want to be
Who we’re meant to be

Our silhouettes rising against the stars
Who cares if they hear our prayers?
It’s time to set this town ablaze
It won’t claim another victim
History will prove our cause just
Don’t you feel alive tonight?

We don’t want to fear
All that is unclear
We don’t want to know
Where we’re meant to go

Then suddenly, clouds form above
And lightning bolts strike
The gods are with us!
The townsfolk run and scream as fire rains down from the sky
It burns away everything we held dear
We laugh, we cackle
As it all crumbles to the ground

We don’t want to see
Your dead burning city
We don’t want to be
Your ancient fantasy

We just need to feel
Something real
The wolves must run free
Away from society
