gaunt and fierce lyrics – this or the apocalypse

every day, i’ve got less to lose
i’ve got more ambition, i’m more conditioned
i can’t feel guilt dragging you down with me
yeah we all hide the hand we’re dealt
if you push me on, i’ll never let you down
i’ll hold my head up high and turn this all around
cause i don’t want to be the only one
who stands at the last scene
when it’s all just ending

you can’t get through to us
we are the nameless
you can’t get through to us
we are the faceless

and i can’t remember feeling stronger
than standing here, beside my brothers
i can’t remember feeling stronger
than standing here
i can’t remember; do you remember?
i can’t remember feeling stronger

so many roots that tie you down
so many ghosts that hold you back
so many chances lost
so much you can’t forget
so many birds that leave the pack
that restraint was something we needed
so don’t you feel defeated
if i could go back then i’d take the chance again

and i can’t remember feeling stronger
than standing here, beside my brothers
i can’t remember feeling stronger
than standing here
i’m wide awake; don’t you know?
keep your roots down deep and never let them tear you down
i’m wide awake; didn’t you now?
keep your roots down deep and never let them tear you down

you can’t get through to us
we are the nameless
you can’t get through to us
we are the faceless

that was me on the song you heard
that was me on the stage somewhere
and you might never understand
but that doesn’t mean i’m not there

no one stays without a reason
no one leaves without a trace
