Tempered, as steel, our bonds are set
The pressure builds
On a horizon infected with death

We walk forward
Like the flickers of light
That follow the spiral
To the center of it all

Falling in, we streak the sky
Stretched by the inhumanity
Demanded of our world

And we hold tight

Deep are the bonds forged in fire
True are pacts of the tried

And as they press, as they strike and crash
As the lights go out, and we fade and dart
Hope pulls inward
Crushed by the weight

Close we cling, and deep we search
And the strength we hold together
Will get us through the night

Enduring
Loving
Thriving
Barely alive, with the audacity for joy

Our bonds are forged in the fire
And the pressure of the end
Will only make us glow.
