These eyes, alive, dilating for the very first time...
Alive.

I vow to fill my grave with a life not wasted.
I am a storm that's grown in the winds of woe.
I built these wings with bones that broke on the grounds of weakness.
I am a phoenix reborn.

This is a lifetime of chances, you'd kill for any one of them.
Now you hold the keys but can you kill enough to keep them?
This choice is yours.
Don't lose sight, don't sell short the dream you set before.
This is what you were made for.

Open your eyes to a new sun.
Embrace the fire, never give it up.
Stretch out the wings you long for
And soar like no one's ever seen before.

Sit back and watch me, I'm gonna make you proud.
I'll be the spear that pins the cowards down.
Just give me a target.
Just give me that green light.
I'll bring down everything to see it's smite.

'Cause I am death from above,
Remember my name.
I am death from above,
The sky is opening up
