"Precipice" as written by and Ronan Harris....
The hope of my redemption
is such that I believe that I am free
To confess would bring me no salvation
for I alone hold the power to forgive me

Of my acts, I will admit, I've no pretensions
I've no regrets for all the things that I have done
My faiths, to me, are as foundations
None has the right to judge my soul but me

There is no going back
No quarter now remains
No return for me, no sanctity
A single chance prevails
The fields behind laid waste
No doubt, no amends to make
at break of day
until the light fails
march ever on

Great are the paths of our creation
that have been made for the brave to see
The fools who would condemn this existence
are as lands to be vanquished and seized

    General Comment"The fields behind laid waste" should be "The lands behind laid waste" instead.

    Anyway, I really enjoy this song. It's very powerful and it makes me feel like I can take on the world. Meh, I'm no good at this!

    General Commentto me this seems to be saying 'forget what what mistakes you've made and continue on'. wheather or not someone forgives you for what you've done means nothing, wheather you forgive yourself or not does

    My OpinionIt's about regretting something so much to the point of bitterness and lack of care for your wellbeing or that of anyone else

    No quarter now remains
    No return for me,"
