"Vice Grip" as written by and Luke Kilpatrick Benjamin Gordon....
A system of complete control
The pressure builds
It wraps its hands around your throat
A constant battle
A silent war of mind and soul

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) get up, get up
One life, one shot, give it all you got
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) get up, get up

Keep the flame alive

Hope for the hopeless, a light in the darkness
Hope for the hopeless, a light in, a light in the dark

(A light in the dark)

The chains set to break your soul Day by day
You know the choice you have to make
Freeze up and fade
Or be the flame that lights the way

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) get up, get up
One life, one shot, give it all you got
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) get up, get up

Keep the flame alive

Hope for the hopeless
A light in the darkness
Hope for the hopeless
You’ve got one life, one shot
Give it all you got

It's got a vice grip, like ice running down your spine
This world, it’s got you in its sights

Rise, rise, rise, rise
It’s all or nothing
Rise, rise, rise, rise
It’s do or die
Rise, rise, rise

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) get up, get up
One life, one shot, give it all you got
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) get up, get up

Keep the flame alive

Hope for the hopeless, a light in the darkness
Hope for the hopeless, a light in the dark
We stand for the faithless and the broken
Hope for the hopeless, a light in, a light in the dark

    General CommentI saw Parkway on their Ire tour. Before they played this song, Winston said to the crowd "I don't normally put much thought into writing a song, but with this one I really tried to write something meaningful"

    General Commenthas anyone seen the video of this? it is awesome! they are skydiving in the video and winston is very afraid of of heights. what a courageous dude staying true to the songs meaning! and they all had to jump out of a plane almost ten times to get it right! then they perform the song to a live audience at night with flames! this is one of their best vids yet paired with an awesome song!
