The secret’s out this is the last time
Cast overboard, dragged out to sea
All premonitions drowned today in the murky waters flowing from wounds
But we emerged soaked in grace, dripping with the truth
You’ve fired upon a target so clear
but we’ve shattered our own glass hearts
We’ve fought with sweat and blood, this life is all we have
Today has taken a bloody toll, but the nightfall will claim your life
Claim your life tonight
Her majesty will swallow you, she’ll devour you
And now we stand at this eulogy dripping with the truth
You fired upon a target and we fired back
We fired back on your stronghold
We devastated all defenses
Regret consumes you
Regret becomes us all
