Sometimes you find yourself guarding the gate alone
Sword drawn while everyone else is packing up their homes
You were frozen with fear, now it’s melted away under your fiery anger
Odd that everyone’s running, that you followed their lead so long is even stranger
You don’t want to engage in battle alone, but you retreat no more
Last time was the last time the enemy beats down your door
Others war in pursuit of victory, but you’re fighting for your peace
Strolling through Hell swinging at everything that threatens your relief
I can’t live under these restraints anymore convincing myself I’m free
I can’t let this leech continue to suck the vitality out of me
Exercising my authority to secure my refuge
Tonight I put you on trial, because you stand accused
