  • Lyrics
  • Killswitch Engage conclude the standard edition of Incarnate with this battle cry. Vocalist Jesse Leach told TeamRock: " It's one of those songs that I can see musclebound dudes at the gym pumping iron to, or a wrestler walking out to the ring. It's a real fist pumper song for me. There's a lot of New York hardcore in there – bands like Madball and Cro-Mags – and I love that. I also love the lyric to finish off the record, 'Your time will come!' It almost leaves the record on a hanging note, as if there's more to come – and there is."
