I hide downtown with clenched fists
Parade bells ring time to begin
Every glance sparks of danger
The damning gaze of anger
Marching past the mob and past the fear

A moment of silence for those who've dared to fly
Frozen hands clasp as cold air and wings collide
Guided by hope that two lovers won't ignite 4 3 2 1
Fire your guns they won't stop what we've begun tonight

I never chose to fight this war
And never wanted any more
Than to shed these velvet bindings
The deafening roar of silence
The weight of something concrete let off my back

A moment of silence for those who've dared to fly
Frozen hands clasp as cold air and wings collide
Guided by hope that two lovers won't ignite 4 3 2 1
Fire your guns they won't stop what we've begun tonight

Smashing through the streets
Parading till defeat
Vilified and laser beamed
Into your room
Regardless what you see
Amongst the chaos on the screen
It's only love that we defend
And if this is how it ends... then

Like those who've flown before
We'll keep demanding more

Tonight tonight tonight 4 3 2 1
Fire your guns they won't stop what we've begun tonight
Tonight we've just begun
Tonight yeah we've just begun
Tonight
