Track Name: Torches
Dare we give permissions to those who take a stand
To eat of graven ashes and cleanse the burning land
Speak of peace under threat, time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Our progressive morals are left to decay
In the midst of evil intent
We spread the wrong ashes, time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Let their torches burn

Dare we give permissions to those who take a stand
To eat of graven ashes and cleanse the burning land
Speak of truth under threat, time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Our progressive morals are left to decay
In the midst of evil intent
We spread the wrong ashes, time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Lackluster tiki bros armored by the gun show
Words gone too far, time to end this race war
Nightmares of hateful pasts, ricocheting cannon blasts
Time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Let their torches burn

Never stop until no hates remains
Track Name: Unfailing
Give me back my heart
Give me back my crown
Give me back the satisfaction I once found

I must penetrate this static sound
Lift myself up off the ground
I can't fail this anymore

I always feel I'm under threat
A hero caught in a tiny net
If I'm so free, what am I waiting for?

So light the torch to contend
But let this world never end
I haven't had my shot

You've come too far to go back now
You'll find a way

You'll find a way (You'll find a way)

I've given too much time to this cause
To let it be cut down
I keep telling myself, I keep telling myself
"I'll find a way"

Feel the Timeless fluency of events
Building monuments in our psyche
Archetypes of the people we were
Metaphors in the aether
Track Name: Torches (Downtempo)
Dare we give permissions to those who take a stand
To eat of graven ashes and cleanse the burning land
Speak of peace under threat, time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Our progressive morals are left to decay
In the midst of evil intent
We spread the wrong ashes, time to take your turn
Let red and rebel flags burn

Let their torches burn
