Track Name: Fade
There’s a current in my veins
It runs through us all
And its rise and fall,
The tide is all that gives me life and breath

But it’s nothing like the waves
When after the calm
The wind and moon will rise,
Restore the life, and raise it from the depths

The water running underneath our skin
Will turn to dust and free us from our sin
Under entropy’s burden,
Only one thing is certain
Tears will carry your name
The river will dry, the current will fade

The form that we’re given
Finite as the space that we live in
It may only permit one drop in the sea

Your efforts, your perils
Your strength and the sacrifice you make
Will carve the mark that you leave
And give your drop its shape

Awakening the fear that feeds our pain
And facing all our demons just the same
Under entropy’s burden,
Only one thing is certain
Tears will carry your name
The river will dry, the current will fade

Live as your sacrifice
Stand as your monuments
There is no greater love
Than to lay down our lives for our friends

What will they say
When all that’s left are monuments
Of all the choices that you’ve made
All that’s at stake
Is the legacy you’ve left for them
Knowing the current will fade
