Track rating :  85.6 / 100       Votes :  10       [ ]
INT. HOME OF ARHYS AND XANDER – NIGHT

[Arhys]
Betrayed my blood
To save my son
A hopeless choice to make

But who am I
If not the one
Who’s meant to keep him safe?
Is trust and loyalty still justified,
If I deny him of a better life?

Gabriel
Has always been
The strength I call upon
But nothing breaks
A father’s will
To do what must be done

Should I turn my back on him?
Abandon all our plans for revolution?
Will hope and freedom die by morning light?

Evangeline
I swore to you
To love and guide our son

Destiny
Has shown its face
And now the time has come

Desperation blinds me
And through these bloodstained eyes I see the light
A better life is worth this sacrifice
