"Retaliate" as written by and Ronan Harris....
I can almost hear
your heart in the darkness
how fast it is beating
how close you are to me

I can almost hear
how tensely you are breathing
out there in the darkness
listening for me

I can almost sense
your skin on my fingers
tension and the fear
anticipating me

I can almost see you
somewhere in the darkness
praying for advantage,
clinging to a chance

Justice never waivers
it is my single purpose
relentless the pursuit
I will find you where you hide
counting on your indecision
deciding when to strike
calculating movement
the senses of the chase

the game of chess begins
the pieces moved in place
your advantage growing slimmer
your options growing thin

the hunt is what defines us
imminent defeat
the back of your shirt soaking
fear all you can feel

One of us the hunter, one of us the prey
one of us the victor, one to walk away
one who's left remaining, one of us who stands
one who lies defeated, beneath the other's hands

when the dust has settled, only one of us will see
which of us was worthy, which of us was weak
and when this time is over
only one of us will say
which of us the victor, and which of us the prey
