I crossed the river
Fell into the see
Where the non-believers
Go beyond belief
Then I scratched the surface
In the mouth of Hell
Running out of service
In the blood I fell

I just want to see the light
I don't want to lose my sight
I just want to see the light
I need to know what's worth the fight

I've been wasted
Pills and alcohol
I've been chasing
Down the pool halls
Then I drank the water
From a hurricane
And I set a fire
Just to see the flame

I just want to see the light
I don't want to lose my sight
I just want to see the light
I need to know what's worth the fight

I crossed the desert
Reaching higher ground
Then I pound the pavement
To take the liars down
But it's gone forever
But never too late
Where the ever after
It's the hands of fate

I just want to see the light
I don't want to lose my sight
I just want to see the light
I need to know what's worth the fight

    This is the final piece of the 21st Century Breakdown story. I see it as written in both Christan and Gloria's views.

    They're saying they've traveled their lives, fighting for a revolution of their beliefs, for their freedom from the constraints of a mindless, self-indulged society. As they grow, they realize that fighting wasn't as necessary as they thought, and that trying to get other people to see life the way they saw it was a waste of time.

    All they want to do now is live according only to themselves. "I drank the water from a hurricane, and I set a fire just to see the flame" they've realized there are little things that make them happy and that huge riots aren't really all they wanted.

    The best way to describe this is that they were like inmates who wanted out, so they caused a huge riot, and when they got what they wanted (freedom) they didn't know what to do with it.

    In all, I think the album has a bit of a message - not only know your enemy, but also know your cause.
