The first song off of our upcoming EP 'Hearts on Fire'
It happened so fast, we said meet in the square,
We all started to chant, let ‘em know we were there,
And we put up a fence, we’re sick of being pushed down,
fifty thousand at first, with more and more coming out,
When they sent the riot police down.
Where were you when we stood together, sacrificed to make things better?
Where were you when we became heroes?
Freezing cold, but our hearts on fire, built a wall of burning tires,
Where were you when we proved we’re not afraid?
And when they came with their guns and megaphones and threats,
In the rising sun, the city looked blood red.
It blew up like a grenade, the struggle rippled like waves,
When I closed my eyes, I saw guns flash in my head.
But we were just too big and we were just too proud,
They pushed as hard as they could, but we held our ground,
Like the heroes before us, we laid our lives down.
And they can take our lives, but our ideas will grow,
And one day they’ll have to reap the ugly seeds that they’ve sown.
And we will never give up, you see the blood on my face?
If I die, and she dies, a hundred more will take our place.

and pounding drums. Combining elements of progressive rock with pop sensibilities along with expansive and emotionally charged lyrics, this band delivers a symphonic listening experience.
