"The Reckoning" lyrics

The Reckoning

(With Jacoby Shaddix)

As cold as stone
They march in darkness
Enslaving the young
And killing their fathers
But soon they'll know
The path they've chosen
Has carved their faith in stone

In blood and tears
A thousand times
We rise against
We'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

Red tears run down like a river
Don't close your eyes
It won't disappear
No fear you wanna end the pain
Don't let go
Don't back down
Hold the line
We'll bring the reckoning

In blood and tears
A thousand times
We rise against
We'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

We're all alone
Walking in twilight
The night has been long
And so many have fallen
Feel no remorse
Light will be breaking
Our freedom is worth it all

In blood and tears
A thousand times
We rise against
We'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

Red tears run down like a river
Don't close your eyes
It won't disappear
No fear you wanna end the pain
Don't let go
Don't back down
Hold the line
We'll bring the reckoning

I see your face
Find piece of mind
Between the madness
And the sadness
And the fire burning
The end of war
The great divine
We'll see the day
Of reckoning

In blood and tears
A thousand times
We rise against
We'll always hold the line

In blood and tears
A thousand times
We rise against
We'll always hold the line

Of reckoning
We'll bring the reckoning

In blood and tears
A thousand times
We rise against
We'll always hold the line
Of reckoning
