Headstrong - Lyrics

"...Chronicles say that Minamoto No Tametomo
(1139-1170) was maybe the first Chinese warrior
To commit seppuku.
After his final defeat the palace was set on fire...
Throughout his entire life,
strength and staying strong has ever been the only way
He decided not to be captured,
so he killed himself by slicing his abdomen...
And seppuku became the code of honor..."

I hear them coming, coming from behind
You can hear my heart beating in the dead of night
I give you my devotion but I'm losing time
And the demons are dark in my mind

You see me falling, falling from the light
I have shared my emotions, who's the last in line
You reveal your devotion, with your blazing might
But you scarify me from inside,
sacrifice what burns you from the light

Staying headstrong, standing so strong
Staying wherever you wanna go

The voices calling, in the middle of the night
Descend to meet my fate now, I stare into the sky
And the black mess is holding on to the morning light
While the preacher is sharpening his knife

The bells are tolling and candles burning bright
Now the darkness surrounds me and devours all light
Still the rain now is falling, as you washed away my life
But you scarify me from inside, sacrifice what burns me from the light

Staying headstrong, standing so strong
Staying wherever you wanna go
Staying headstrong wherever you go

You, stay, strong, deep in the ground
You, stay, strong, there's blood on the ground
