"Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry the Defiant" as written by and Claudio Sanchez Travis Stever....
Believer
Your spotlight on the subject so incorrect
And suggestion, suggests that I'm someone you should not respect
Oh you wear your facade so well
Covered up in a plastic shell
You're a liar to everyone around you
Just don't forget

Face the honest truth
You were never you

Now be defiant, the lion
Give them the fight that will open their eyes
Hangman hooded, softly swinging
Don't close the coffin yet
I'm alive

And it's homecoming
And it's homecoming

Can you remember
When there was no wrong in what I could do
So young, biting off way more than I could chew
And then one day I grew too old
And my cares were now theirs to mold
Please accept this as my resignation
It's time to go

Face the honest truth
You were never you

Now be defiant, the lion
Give them the fight that will open their eyes
Hangman hooded, softly swinging
Don't close the coffin yet

I'm alive
I'm alive

I will now bleed for what I believe in
No more mistakes for them to make for me
So goodbye, it's my time to be me
To be me

Face the honest truth
You were never you

Now be defiant, the lion
Give them the fight that will open their eyes
Hangman hooded, softly swinging
Don't close the coffin yet

I'm alive
I'm alive

    Song MeaningSentry joins Evagria in attempting to protect Sirius from the first three entities, but Sirius is still forced to relive his life as he had with the other spirits in the Keywork.

    In life, Sentry was in the army under Vic's command. When he became aware of the horrible war crimes Vic committed, he confided in one other sergeant and swore to bring Vic to justice for his crimes. Before he could tell anyone else, however, Vic murdered Sentry, staging the scene as a suicide. Terrified into silence, the remaining sergeant did not shine light on the true nature of Sentry's death until years later when evidence of Vic's crimes finally surfaced and the guilt of his silence became too much to bear. Vic was eventually charged for his crimes, and in death, Sentry became a hero of the war, celebrated for his sacrifice in his pursuit of justice.

    But Vic did not truly get his justice; he took his own life before he could stand trial, and so the two entities continue fighting in death, Vic seeking to punish Sentry's betrayal, and Sentry attempting to finally bring Vic down for good. Sirius, unfortunately finds himself in the middle of this struggle, and in this he realizes what he must do. Remembering Evagria's contentment at her situation, he sees that these warring entities remain in limbo because they continue holding on to the horrible events that occurred in their lives, and so he attempts to convince Sentry to simply let his conflict with Vic go.

    He is successful. Sentry moves on to a state of complete enlightenment, and along with Evagria, he takes Sirius to the higher plane, just for a moment, before transporting him back to his ship and out of harm's way, where he is finally free to return home.

    My InterpretationI believe it's about a person who has been blamed for something they didn't do. They're punishment would be an execution of some sort. The person placing the blame is lying in hope he will remain free; so he puts on this facade. This person (Sentry) wants to expose this man for who his is, but in order to do so, he must resist against the powers against him. Just my interpretation, and I think this will play a big role in the Key Entities Story.
