"The Reckoning (feat. Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix) " as written by and Robert Westerholt Daniel Bjorn Gibson....
As cold as stone, they march in darkness
Enslaving the young and killing their fathers
But soon they'll know the path they've chosen
Has carved their fate in stone

In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

Red tears run down like a river
Don't close your eyes, it won't disappear
No fear, you wanna end the pain
Don't let go, don't back down
Hold the line, we'll bring the reckoning

In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

We're all alone, walking in twilight
The night has been long and so many have fallen
Feel no remorse, light will be breaking
Our freedom is worth it all

In blood and tears, a thousand times
We'll rise against, we'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

Red tears run down like a river
Don't close your eyes, it won't disappear
No fear you wanna end the pain
Don't let go, don't back down
Hold the line, we'll bring the reckoning

I see your face, find peace of mind
Between the madness and the sadness and the fire burning
The end of war, the great divine
We'll see the day
Of reckoning

In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We'll rise against, we'll always hold the line

Of reckoning

We'll bring the reckoning
In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line
Of reckoning

    My Interpretation'Day of reckoning' itself refers to the Last Judgment of God in Christian & Islamic belief during which everyone after death is called to account for their actions committed in life. We should always bare in mind that even after we're dead we will still have to answer for any sins we commit. Consequently we should choose our battles and forge our paths with caution whenever possible.
