So lock and load mercenaries
I see the smoke from the hilltop
They march one by one
The battle starts adversaries
We bathe in our blood
The worst is yet to come
We've reached the covenant
To kill what we have started
Kill the machines
We've spawned to fight in the darkest hour

They really need to know
We really gotta go
(We fight to live, we fight for pride) They really need to know
(We won't back down the weak won't survive) We really gotta go

Please stay here tonight (Don't let them find us or we're dead)
Promise me you won't leave my side (The warmest place to lie my head)
And when the sun comes up we fight (Don't let them find us or we're dead)
So promise me you won't leave my side

Trace the blood back to the grave
The smoke has cleared
Thousands are destroyed
They send signals no salvation
We fight in lock out
Scope is ready to go
Armed with explosives
Spartans stand alone

They really need to know
We really gotta go
(We fight to live, we fight for pride) They really need to know
(We won't back down the weak won't survive) We really gotta go

Please stay here tonight (Don't let them find us or we're dead)
Promise me you won't leave my side (The warmest place to lie my head)
And when the sun comes up we fight (Don't let them find us or we're dead)
So promise me you won't leave my side

(Solo)

Please stay here tonight (Don't let them find us or we're dead)
Promise me you won't leave my side (The warmest place to lie my head)
And when the sun comes up we fight (Don't let them find us or we're dead)
So promise me you won't leave my side

Charge the gates with rust on their gears
They seek destruction and kill the functions
Charge the gates with rust on their gears
They seek destruction and kill the functions
Charge the gates with rust on their gears
They seek destruction and kill the functions
Charge the gates with rust on their gears...

[Fade Out]

    Everything that etf has ever written never has had one meaning. There are many complex meanings you or I could never catch, because some of them are in the guitar licks, some in the drums, but in the vox there are always many meanings. I take this song to be a resistance towards fake love. A real love won't leave your side, not even when things are over and the moment is gone. Its easy to love during a pressured situation, but how are you going to feel when you and that person are alone with naught to say?
