  • As cold as stone, they march in darkness
    Enslaving the young and killing their fathers
    But soon they'll know the path they've chosen
    Has carved their fate in stone

    In blood and tears, a thousand times
    We rise against, we'll always hold the line
    Of reckoning

    Red tears run down like a river
    Don't close your eyes, it won't disappear
    No fear, you wanna end the pain
    Don't let go, don't back down
    Hold the line, we'll bring the reckoning

    In blood and tears, a thousand times
    We rise against, we'll always hold the line
    Of reckoning

    We're all alone, walking in twilight
    The night has been long and so many have fallen
    Feel no remorse, light will be breaking
    Our freedom is worth it all

    In blood and tears, a thousand times
    We'll rise against, we'll always hold the line
    Of reckoning

    Red tears run down like a river
    Don't close your eyes, it won't disappear
    No fear you wanna end the pain
    Don't let go, don't back down
    Hold the line, we'll bring the reckoning

    I see your face, find peace of mind
    Between the madness and the sadness and the fire burning
    The end of war, the great divine
    We'll see the day
    Of reckoning

    In blood and tears, a thousand times
    We rise against, we'll always hold the line
    In blood and tears, a thousand times
    We'll rise against, we'll always hold the line

    Of reckoning

    We'll bring the reckoning
    In blood and tears, a thousand times
    We rise against, we'll always hold the line
    Of reckoning Writer/s: Daniel Bjorn Gibson, Robert Westerholt, Sharon J. Adel Den
