"On the Wire" as written by Bo Bruce, David Etherington and Karen Ann Poole....
We don't have much time.
The lights are on us.
We could lose our minds.
They're all around us.

Run with me start a revolution.
Come with me through the dark.
As they bring their swords we will stand to fall as they try to tear us apart, art.

They shoot to kill, let's run until we're miles away.
The arrows fly but you and I are miles away.
Out of the line of fire.
We stand with hearts on the wire.

In these blackened skies they're building empires.
Taking corners blind.
Turn sparks to embers.

Run with me start a revolution.
Come with me through the dark.
As they bring their swords we will stand to fall as they try to tear us apart, art.

They shoot to kill, let's run until we're miles away.
The arrows fly but you and I are miles away.
They shoot to kill, let's run until we're miles away.
The arrows fly, but you and I are miles away.
Out of the line of fire.
We stand with hearts on the wire.

The sirens call from the underworld.
As the storm moves in we must go.

They shoot to kill, let's run until we're miles away.

Run with me start a revolution.
Come with me through the dark.
As they bring their swords we will stand to fall as they try to tear us apart, art.

They shoot to kill, let's run until we're miles away.
The arrows fly but you and I are miles away.
They shoot to kill, let's run until we're miles away.
The arrows fly, but you and I are miles away.
Out of the line of fire.
We stand with hearts on the wire.
