Born into a life of luxury
Born into a life of war
Seeing what my genius was used or
I've decided o give something more.
My mind, my body, my mortality
I've found purpose I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die
Looking
I can now reach and touch the sky.
What really makes a man a man?
Is it love? Loss?
Or his will to survive.
I've put these people in danger with the weapons I create
One the merchant of death
Now an advocate of peace
My mind, my body, my mortality
I've found purpose I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die
Looking in
I can now reach and touch he sky.
Sentinel
My creation and I are in sync
My creation and I are in sync
My purpose I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die
Looking in
I can now reach and ouch the sky.
Sentinel
My creation and I are in sync
My creation and I are n sync
Bound the soul to the machine
Born into life of luxury
Born into a life of war
Seeing what my genius was used for
I've decided to give something more.
My mind, my body, my mortality
I've found purpose I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to die
What really makes a man a man?
Is it love? Loss? or his will?
What really makes a man man? is love? loss?
Or his will to survive.
Looking in
I can now reach and touch the sky.
Sentinel

    Song MeaningBand stated in interview that each song is about a different comic book character(s), but that the lyrics are also written vaguely enough to be relateable.

    Characters: I struggled with this one at first. I thought maybe Lex Luther, but this character was obviously more good than him. My wife was the one to actually figure it out. It's Tony Stark, IRON MAN. Rich? check. Sold weapons for wars? check. Became advocate for peace? check. Bonded to a machine that can touch the sky"? check.

    General message: A "sentinel" is a soldier or guard whose job is to stand and keep watch. In general the song is about watching out for others and trading wealth and fame for heroism.
