Premise

A greater darkness for all it’s worth
A friend so young who’s life was cut
We drink the rain to clear our throats
We drink the poison to make it go

The little mercies above all things
No final act. no final scene
A friend for life and in death too
Forever strong, forever hold, inside our soul

So raise your hands above the waters
We are the thieves in giant shoulders
So raise your hands, our hearts sink lower
To watch you drown inside the monster

The day now ends and all within
A greater darkness covers everything
Is there no end for such a pain
Is there no hope, no other life no way to know?

So raise your heads above the gates
We are the cold touch in your shoulders
So raise your minds, our hearts beat slower
To watch you drown inside the monster

So raise your hands inside the monster

Chapter One: “The Fallen Rise”

Well… You know, so much of the time we’re just lost.
We say, “Please, God, tell us what is right. Tell us what is true.”

I mean there is no justice.
The rich win; the´╗┐ poor are powerless.
We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time we become dead, a little dead.
We think of ourselves as victims – and we become victims.
We become… We become weak; we doubt ourselves; we doubt our beliefs; and we doubt the law.

But today you are the law.
