"An Era of Treachery" as written by Robert Ljung and Jacob Papinniemi....
This will be the end of you!
Ladies and gentlemen, friends and foe's,
This song goes out to all you fucking quiters out there

How dare you stare at the ground when you
don’t even know which direction to go?
Are you really that anxious to drift life away,
and just give up on yourself?

You better dance to the beat of living
Start taking control and take care of yourself
Reach out for help if you’re falling
We're in this together
You’re in this alone

Don't be proud enough to reach out for help

She's on fire but her embers burn her bridges
And she knows that she can’t walk on water
Yet she tries
For what is worse than to ask your friends for help?
And so she sinks to the bottom of the sea

Burn out the eyes of the traitors face
They have told their final line
They have told their final line
One more time we'll throw down our fucking fists
To anyone who stand against us
To anyone who disagree

Stop chasing your shadow
You're in this alone
You need to fight until your heart stops beating
Don’t think for a second that you will be saved
Hands down
It's over

This is the end
of everything
And sure as hell I'm taking you with it
I rather die with blood on my hands,
if my conscious is clean and my heart's been beating pure

For what is living if you're already dead?

She's on fire but her embers burn her bridges
And she knows that she can’t walk on water

Oh, she's on fire but her embers burn her bridges
And she knows that she can’t walk on water
Yet she tries
For what is worse than to ask your friends for help?
And so she sinks to the bottom of the sea

We’re swiming and sinking,
We’re running and falling,
We’re breathing, not living,
We’re crashing down!

We hold the answers in our hearts
As we been singing times before
We spend every breath to stand our ground
But what’s the point when we're sinking?
