"Labyrinth" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
Help!
The air turns black, the birds drop from the sky.
This eagle has landed,
I'm choking on your pride

And the walls are closing in,
And you don't appreciate that in my hands tonight, is where your fate lies
Her face drains...

[Stand] Stand up, take a bow you have, no reason to celebrate
[You're] You're lost in a labyrinth, scream now it's not too late...

Help!
The air turns black, the birds drop from the sky.
This eagle has landed,
I'm choking on your pride

And the walls are closing in,
And you don't appreciate that in my hands tonight, is where your fate lies
Her face drains...

[Stand] Stand up, take a bow you have, no reason to celebrate
[You're] You're lost in a labyrinth, scream now it's not too late...

Nothing seems to break the walls down, break the walls, down...
Nothing seems to break the walls down, break the walls, down...

We'll break the walls!
We'll break the walls!
We'll break the walls, down!

We'll break the walls!
We'll break the walls!
We'll break the walls, down!


Yeah, stand! Will he make it out?
Hope he makes it out!
He's gonna make it out!
He's gotta make it out!

[Stand] Stand up!

[You're] You're lost!

In a labyrinth!

    General CommentIts about a wedding so well done to bWp, its looking on the Husband or Grooms views/side on the marriage, and the fact that his life could just be his wife screaming and arguing all the time from now on, and his thoughts that when its just getting the part where they do that "I DO” whether everyone will stand up and stop the marriage,

    But its a bit more complex as it also compares the marriage to birds and the smoke polluting the air (very clever)

    And I don’t know if anyone has spotted the big clue, but this is it

    ("And the walls are closing in,
    And you don't appreciate that in my hands tonight, is where your fate lies
    Her face drains...")

    The thing in his hand is a ring, and marriage is fate, as always when you propose to someone they cry (Her face drains)

    So in simple, It’s set in a wedding at the alter and the guy is having second thoughts.

    Solved =)

    General CommentI think this song is possibly about a girl that is so arrogant/big headed that she's become lost and not concerned for other people or grateful for those helping her.
    For example:

    ''I'm choking on your pride''
    ''And you don't appreciate that in my hands tonight, is where your fate lies''
    I think the line ''Her face drains...'' is when she realises she isn't all that.
    Seeing as a 'Labyrinth' is like a complex maze sort of thing that is easy to get lost in I think this refers to her self-obsession.
    Also the lines ''Nothing seems to break the walls down, break the walls, down...'' and ''We'll break the walls down!''
    are referring to the fact of breaking down the 'labyrinth's' walls and escaping from loving yourself too much.

    Probably is wrong but whatever, that's my interpretation. :]

    General Commentjsut a thought but i'd disagree with false smiles. i think it's more about a marrige and getting tied down. "Well it looks like the end is nigh for our friends here, he's finding it hard to keep his head, especially with his girl SCREEEAMING in his ear. IF ANYONE HAS ANYTHING TO SAY LET THEM SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD THEIR PEACE."

    great song.
