Knightfall

Violence Anger Pain Darkness
I need to get involved
The only way to bring the light is to be the dark
To be the thing that people fear
There’s a thin line that can be crossed at any time
I need to hide and I need to keep the secret

Love Lies Pain Regret
It can’t be different, but I wish it was
Rachel, I wanted to tell you
I’m sorry I left, I’m sorry I was always gone
I wanted you to know that I loved you
I wanted you to know I was going to take the stress away
But now it doesn’t matter
Because I didn’t save you
And it was all for nothing

Fight Arrest Pain Murder
This path is the only way
It will never stop it will never end
But I need to get him and take revenge
With the city’s role model that has turned
Lying on the ground, his face half burned
We need to tell the public the lies
We can’t let all their hope evaporate

Fight Bleed Pain Arrest
Finally he is gone
No more tricks, no more chasing
No more scars, no more hazing
He was at the top, but was definitely not the last

Torn Goals Pain Save
I am not needed as the hero when the culprit is gone
And the city’s savior is dead
En Why needs a villain
I will cross that line

I am the dark, the black
I am the Caped Crusader
And when you look up, I am the fear that fly’s across the sky at night
I am the fallen Knight
