I've risked life and death

I've risked life and death, and given every breath
I've thrown caution to the wind
I looked fear in the face when I should have played it safe
Now there's no chance to make amends

The line between stress and apathy have been blurred
Not being here, my greatest fears have been confirmed
Don't insult me with false sympathy or act concerned
Just when I needed help from someone else: your back's turned

I've risked life and death, and now there's nothing left
But memories and regret
I've looked fear in the face, made memories that can't be erased
Devastation you can't forget. Yeah!

The line between stress and apathy have been blurred
Not being here, my greatest fears have been confirmed
Don't insult me with false sympathy or act concerned
Just when I needed help from someone else: your back's turned

Say goodbye to family, I'm saying goodbye to friends
'Cause I know our time is short, and all things said:
I'm losing rationale. I'm losing control
This world has taken it's toll

There'll be a reckoning for the devastation done here today
There'll be a reckoning for the devastation done here today

[Guitar solo]

There'll be a reckoning for the devastation done here today
There'll be a reckoning for the devastation done here today
