LyricsEdit

Nevermore
Nevermore
Will I be afraid
Nor will I run away
It's behind me
Freedom is finally here
You may have taken the lead but I'll even the score
You won the battle you won't win the war
Not now and
Nevermore

You talked of subjugation
I answered your violent plea
Youth and infatuation
Kept me too blind to see
You think you're someone's hero
You're hiding more than your eyes
I challenge your weak manifesto
The goal of a savior is not to be lionized

Back when it started
I thought that justice was your goal
Then in the darkness
You lost your mind
I lost my soul
That's in the past and I won't be controlled

Nevermore
Nevermore
You'll torture my heart and my head
Nevermore
Nevermore
Will I be afraid
Nor will I run away
It's behind me
Freedom is finally here
You may have taken the lead but I'll even the score
You won the battle you won't win the war
Not now and
Nevermore

You had me down, defeated
A state that I can't allow
It's over, my fear's retreated
I'm more like an army now
You offered hope, salvation
Gave me a place to be
But your vision of liberation
Was all about you
It would never apply to me

I won't stay a martyr
It's my turn to take back what you stole
And this time I'm smarter
I made a vow
I'm not alone
Not dying now we're protecting our own

Nevermore
Nevermore
You'll torture my heart and my head
Nevermore
Nevermore
Will I be afraid
Nor will I run away
It's behind me
Freedom is finally here
You may have taken the lead but I'll even the score
You won the battle you won't win the war
Not now and
Nevermore

There's no cause to celebrate
Another soul consumed by hate and spite
Another destroyed life
There's no pleasure, there's no joy
It's just a story of a boy who lost his way
Into shadows strayed
He'll see the light of day

Nevermore
Nevermore
You'll torture my heart and my head
Nevermore
Nevermore
Will I be afraid
Nor will I run away
It's behind me
Freedom is finally here
You may have taken the lead but I'll even the score
You won the battle you won't win the war
Not now and
Nevermore
