I stand before you blood of mine
A simple man of simple words
I expect no songs of praise when I am dead
Let my lament of endless gray
Light a fire in your hands
To force a future we can call our own

So rise to the sound of revolution

Revolution
Elevation to a higher ground
Revolution
The last solution for our kind

I speak to you
The chosen ones
With all our strength we stand aligned
The pending birth of war will break the silence
A second chance will wait for us
To redeem us from our craving
And the thirst for what was once forbidden

We are breaking the walls from inside
So rise to the sound of revolution

Revolution
Elevation to a higher ground
Revolution
The last solution for our kind

Citizen zero...
Are you ready for the war...
Crows... cluster... riot!
Burn... the cage... down... riot!

Standing in the ashes
The echo of our past
The smoke has cleared
There are shards of broken mirrors
Everywhere
We are standing at the crossroads
Afraid but not alone
A thousand missing faces
A story of a rose
In honor of their sacrifice
A new life can be born
I'm grateful and I leave this world
With no regrets at all
As life is pourin out of me
With all the power left in me
I raise my voice...

Revolution
Elevation to a higher ground
Revolution
Retribution
In the sound
Revelation for the human mind
Revolution
The last solution for our kind

    General CommentSo this seems to be the climax of a story that's told throughout several tracks on the album. The band has said that Haven is not a concept album, but at the same time they confirmed that the songs are connected thematically. I do think that there is some kind of story going on in a couple of the songs, those being:
    Insomnia, Citizen Zero, Beautiful Apocalypse, Liar Liar (Wasteland Apocalypse), Here's to the Fall, Revolution
    It's some kind of Matrix story. There's people living in a dream world controlled by a machine (Citizen Zero), and also a chosen one (Insomnia) who can stop it. Some people start following him and hope for a better world (Beautiful Apocalypse), but then the hero is caught by the regime and sentenced to death (Liar Liar). The hero thinks about life and death (Here's to the Fall). Then he dies, and with his sacrifice he makes the people wake up and revolt against Citizen Zero ("are you ready for the war").
