Lyrics

The Hydra closed in,
intent on taking you down,
shedding its skin and
squeezing town-to-town.
Stand tall, be proud,
for you swung your sword,
cutting it off, head-by-head
as with it came rivers of blood and
the underworld reaching out
from its abyss; they, not you,
will finish up with, nay, in Tartarus,
and I tell you now, I know, I know
it is a Herculean might
but I feel victory will be yours,
you'll have the last hiss in this fight
and the darkness, as I’ve thought,
shall unequivocally yield to the light.

I hear you
I see your plight
justice will be
done on one fateful night

I hear you
I see your plight
justice will be
done on one fateful night

Hold on,
if you can,
to the memories
that burn bright,
don’t lose sight.

Don’t lose sight
Don’t lose sight
Justice will be
done on one fateful night

Hold on,
if you can,
to the memories
that burn bright,
don't lose sight.
