Lyrics

The unmade bed
The unwritten letter
The unspoken promise it would one day be better
The undying passion
The unchained melody
The uncaged canary not sure how to be free

The war rages on between the sword and the wand
For riches already gained
Defend and defeat, peel away the conceit
Until only the Truth remains

I have cleared the space, it’s time to take my place
Open up my youth, stand up and be the proof

The unmentioned failures
The unavenged crimes
The uncaring marches of memory and time
The unfounded fears and
The unexplored depths
The unvanquished hero on an unstarted quest

And the war carries on between the sword and the wand
For riches already gained
Advance and retreat, peel away the conceit
Until only the Truth remains

Some say the devil’s in the details
For some, it’s the devil you know
Now that the devil can’t stop me
Why am I unwilling to steal his show?
Time to come down from the mountains
Drown out the battle cries
Be unabashed I’ll always have the devil in my eye

I have cleared the space, it’s time to take my place
Open up my youth, stand up and be the proof
I have cleared the space, it’s time to take my place
Prepare to speak my truth, stand up and be the proof

And the war will linger on between the sword and the wand
And I’ll keep the rewards I’ve gained
All advance, no retreat, peel away the conceit
Until only the Truth remains
Truth remains
