about

A resistance leader, and our protagonist's only remaining friend, is brought before a kangaroo court for unspeakable heresy.

lyrics

Stand back and await your prosecution
You'll have your turn soon
You've been found with a gun in your hand
They've all but adjudicated

I've done nothing at all
You're the criminals here
I've got nothing to hide
You're the ones to be feared

You'd put me to death for exposing your lies?
You are not the givers, but takers of life
Do not endure this any longer, I beg you
Let that which kills me make us stronger
This is your fight now

How do I plead
(How do you plead)
Against this charge
(Against this charge)
Am I repentant of my sins?
Do you wanna know?
Did I bleed?
(Did you bleed?)
Did I fight hard?
(Did you fight hard?)
You bet your life I did
More than you did

There'll be no more questions, that's quite enough
(I'll bite my tongue now)
You've made your suggestion, I've called your bluff
(Oh, have you? Well,)

I've done nothing at all
You're the criminals here
I've got nothing to hide
You're the ones to be feared

You'd put me to death for exposing your lies?
You are not the givers, but takers of life
Do not endure this any longer, I beg you
Let that which kills me make us stronger
This is your fight now

I will live on
Reincarnate
In the bodies
Of my people
Walk through fire
Take my last breath
Watch me live on in salvation

I will live on
Reincarnate
In the bodies
Of my people
Walk through fire
Take my last breath
Watch me live on in salvation

You'd put me to death for exposing your lies?
You are not the givers, but takers of life
Do not endure this any longer, I beg you
Let that which kills me make us stronger
This is your fight now

about

Gears Under Atlas Montevallo, Alabama

Prog metal band from Alabama tinged with hardcore and post-hardcore. We take as much influence from King Crimson and Rush as we do from The Fall of Troy and At the Drive In. We try to create complex, energetic, and emotional space metal without coming off as pretentious. Let us know how that's going for us. ... more
