  • In another time and space
    You meet your maker face to face.
    You know who cast the spell
    And turned his eye on you,
    Can't lose sight of it,
    Never fading out,
    Fading out of view.

    Number the brave
    In your heart,
    Number the brave,
    For they died for you.

    Out of the free zone
    Into the night -
    There has to be a sacrifice.
    It's such a scary feeling,
    You must feel it too -
    From a fallen angel fading in and fading out of view.

    So when we reach the other side
    You know their fight is justified.
    Now you see the meaning
    Of the dream they share with you -
    It's a burning light
    Never fading out,
    Fading out of view.

    Number the brave
    In your heart,
    Number the brave,
    For they died for you.
    Writer/s: ANDY POWELL, LAURIE WISEFIELD, STEVEN UPTON
