And all the time we've struggled for
Without a reason or way out
All the grounds we've based our fight on
No one remembers anymore why

And all the blame that has gone into
To run in circles, stand fast still
And all the hatred we've poured into
To fill the trench between us

No more tears from me
These rivers run dry
No more fear in me
This heart's stone inside

And as the shadows give way to light
Grow and thrive
Every day must lose to night
Fade and die

And all the time we spent together
United as one on the same side
And despite the chink in the armour
We fought a good fight, we had our time

And its a shame we let all precious
Gather rust, brittle and decay
Shame we had to kill all the graceful
To grasp what we really had there

    General CommentWhat Insomnium wrote in their booklet :
    I think I had this song pretty much finished already back in 2012. I first thought that this song could be too simple and "pop" for Insomnium. And a lot of people probably think that is. However, I found myself humming the melodies just too often to hide it in the drawer. To bring some heaviness into it I ended up adding a new verse to it later. Maybe because it was one of the first songs that came together I really got fed up with it at some point. However, when I heard the first mix it sounded again really good. And somehow, it fit right in the mix by being just that much different from the other tracks we have on this album. The lyrics behind the song deals with the fact that sometimes you end up learning things the hard way. But because life goes on, you just need to come to terms with everything.

    My InterpretationI think that this song tells that whatever has a beginning has an end, and so do the friendships.

    General CommentBought tears to me, xant review this song. It will loose its meaning if i do. But i know for sure, lyrics are an art a talent very few have mastered. And the melo in the band has really moved me. In tears i wrote this note. You guys shall remain my favourite because your songs talk to my heart and soul!
