Wiki

General

As their second song of their first single 'The Grey', it is the connector between the songs 'Servant of the Grey'. It was probably written right after the latter in late 2015/early 2016.

Behind the lyrics

The fictional character takes on a more depressed role as seen in the first line 'The time has come, the end comes around. He then describes symptoms of burnout syndrome, that's how we learn that he was one of the Servants described in Servant of the Grey. This also describes his defiance for the Grey.

In the pre-chorus the character states that he does not feel free in this world and the less he cares about this, the more he sees how messed up this way of living is as you need to get cold and uncaring to get on in the world.

The fray can be intepreted as many things. Maybe it is the office the character worked in, or just life in general. The fight can then be seen as another day in modern life slavery.

The second verse is about a life, once filled with wishes and ambition just wasted away. A scheme that was later re-used in their, now still unreleased, 4th song.

Lyrics

The time has come, the end comes around,
My body is tired, there's sweat on my brow,
Battery's empty, no fuel left to burn,
The mind is drifting, for peace i yearn

The things i know,
Are haunting me,
The less i care,
The more i see,
The past is gone,
Yet taunting me,
Why can't I,
Just be free?

Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die
Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die on this day

So many mistakes, in a wasted past,
The cold kreeps in, my strength won't last,
A haunted soul, in a broken man,
A lifetime is gone, what will remain

The things i know,
Are haunting me,
The less i care,
The more i see,
The past is gone,
Yet taunting me,
Why can't I,
Just be free?

Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die,
Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die on this day

If i could go back,
Would I do it all again?
Or can I change?
Can I be a better man?
Looking back I see mistakes,
More mistakes than victories,
Betrayals of friendship,
Loss of honor and love

Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die

Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die on this day,

Once more into the fray,
Last good fight i'll know,
Live or die today,
Live or die on this day
