07. Odysseus - A Song of Hope

Back Breaker
by The Showdown


Long days and longer nights
They stretch like barren seas
God only knows if we'll ever see home
Or if that home remembers me
We have heard the siren's song
And we have braved the hydra's maw
A dream of glory gone too far
To make a place in history ours

Servants, strangers, heroes to ourselves
Hearts beat in rhythm as we sail
And I will not die forgotten to this world
Icons and vagabonds, the rulers of this earth

We are the dead
We are the homesick, lost, and loveless
Let to live 'cause we won't die
Though stretched and broken we will rise
We are the deaf
But you will hear us sing again
A song of hope, a song of life
A song to urge the ill-advised

We live or die the chosen few
To face the early graying dawn
Let history remember us as those
Who conquered the beyond
Ageless and mighty
Let our legend outlive time
Warriors and proud men all
You will hear of our lives
