There's no mistake
Plea denied, lying remains
Fear so restrained
Plea denied, lying insane
Pray for the day
Your sentence awaits
Inside your senses awake

Cold harsh first light
Face the trial failed in life
Hold on, first light
Face the trial, fade then die

Free from regret
Redefine darkened intent
Blood drawn & drained
Weakened I'm worthless in chains
Tears from the brave
Your senses awake
The final elegy waits

    Song MeaningFirst light is the symbol for the glimmer of hope for peace which is never achieved. Perhaps a modern day interpretation of the struggle in the middle east and the hopelessness of resolving such deep-rooted turmoil. Although Nick Holmes mentioned that Faith Divides Us Death Unites US was not intended to be a concept album, there are undertones of anti-religious sentiment revealed in a few songs and possibly here. Mackintosh's wailing guitar represents the murderous force that kills off this straggling first light. It is a tormented awakening to a death march in hell.
