  • Pure in the mess
    So we undress
    Answers we guess
    Feeling our best

    Saw it in the undertow
    Holding on to what we know
    Losing every anchor from
    Moving with the hunger groan

    We are the night burn,
    That keeps you running
    Makes you wanna be in the fight
    Better hold on tight

    We are the place
    That keeps you raising higher, higher, higher

    We are the night burn,
    That keeps you running
    Makes you wanna be in the fight
    Better hold on tight

    We are the place
    That keeps you raising higher in the after light
