lyrics

And off the beaten path, I...
GO!

Squeezed out the blood from the stone that laid atop my feet
Impeding blood flow and forward progression.
I've walked through fire to find a sense of purpose to call my own:
A newfound direction.

The fire inside rises up engulfing all fears and all lies.
The fire inside: scorching the core of unwavering pride...

Defeated heart no longer.
I've settled with the house.
So long, midnight monster!
I've licked the blade and I've cut the demons out...
A crimson mask removed with vicious resolve.
I looked the devil in the eye then mounted his head upon my wall!

The fire inside rises up engulfing all fears and all lies.
The fire inside: scorching the core of unwavering pride...

Because I'm strong, defiant, and cut like the knife,
The promise isn't everything you hoped you would find in this life.
Be strong, defiant, and cut like the knife:
Fate is just a word that only you can define for you!

If all the world is indeed a stage, why waste your time?
Why not create... the perfect part for yourself to play?
And leave behind the masquerade...

If all the world is indeed a set, what do you feel of the mark you've left?
Are you satisfied? Do you have regret?
Or are you wondering why you haven't made one yet?

Because I'm strong, defiant, and cut like the knife,
The promise isn't everything you hoped you would find in this life.
Be strong, defiant, and cut like the knife:
Fate is just a word that only you can define for you!

(Solo: Oliver)

(Solo: Almeida)

The fire... Inside...
The fire... Will rise!

Squeezed out the blood from the stone that laid atop my feet,
Impeding blood flow and forward progression.
A crimson mask: removed with vicious resolve.
I looked the devil in the eye then mounted his head upon my wall.

If all the world is indeed a stage, why waste your time?
Why not create... the perfect part for yourself to play?
And leave behind the masquerade...

If all the world is indeed a set, what do you feel of the mark you've left?
Are you satisfied? Do you have regret?
Or are you wondering why you haven't made one yet?

(Outro: Almeida)
