This track was influenced by the current political climate, where refugees are seen as criminals and terrorists, and not the human beings seeking refuge and safe passage that they truly are. Both Gustav and myself find this attitude despicable and beneath us, and feel we should all do better to our fellow man. The lyrics are heavily inspired by recent events.
Close your eyes, and pretend you're gone,
you see light, like the break of dawn.
Fill your lungs, hear the ocean roar,
go without, knowing what's in store,
it gets dark, once you close the door,
distant sounds, of the coming war.
Of the coming..
Keep on dreaming, stay on track,
keep on going, hold on,
keep those monsters, off your trail,
they won't chase much longer.
Let the shadows, hide your tracks,
let the sunlight, shine on, shine on,
this is what you, came here for,
keep on pushing, keep on..
