"At The Gates" as written by and John Stuart Taylor Benjamin Lloyd Jolliffe....
I see the vultures overhead
They’re circling for the waking dead
Walking the line
Mile after mile
Seems so much further than I ever thought
Have I lost my way?

So I’ll stand at the gates
Screaming I am not afraid
But there’s no one listening to me
I know I’m to blame
For my hands amongst the flames
I just want to feel alive

As I stumble down this unlit road
My legs buckle underneath the load
Though it twists and turns
And my muscles burn
I keep on going to stop me from thinking
That I’ve lost my way

So I’ll stand at the gates
Screaming I am not afraid
But there’s no one listening to me
I know I’m to blame
For my hands amongst the flames
I just want to feel alive

March on
March on
Until I’m at the gates
March on
March on

So I’ll stand at the gates
Screaming I am not afraid
But there’s no one listening to me
I know I’m to blame
For my hands amongst the flames
I just want to feel alive

March on (x8)
