May my conscience find rest.
So many thoughts parading around in my head.
I can't do this on my own, but with the one that pulls me through,
surrounded by love, failing to see fear.
God painted the picture perfect image of you, may you lead me from here.
You tell me to hold on, keep fighting, I can't take a breath without you.
You are the one that pulls me through.
Standing toe to toe with the things that want to decimate me.
They take their chance on one of the weak.
When will they realize that like the day and the night,
we have learned to unite.
Nothing can stop me now.
Let's bring these swords to life.
Nothing can break this!
We have found the meaning.
Our hearts can't be misleading.
As we go to battle with what has always overtaken us.
This time I will not forsake love.
Take my hand.
We can become as pure as we stand!
Give way to grace and purity.
Just look into theses eyes and you shall see.
I won't let you down!
My love, my love, my dear!
Watch as they come near.
They don't understand we're bringing Hell and highwater!
I won't let them hurt you.
