The Fight Before the End

Break the chains, step out of the shadows
T’was all wasted anyway
Those virtue-bearers, self-called men
They have done it again

Toss the mantle, and drop the mask
All you’ve tried was meant to fail
You want to throw it away, it all made you go astray
Now’s the time to catch up, and make them pay…

How could I feel so alone, in this matrix of instincts?
Invisible among them, yet all they see of me is
The hero of the day… saviour of the human ways
Six billion minds to mend the truth

How could I suddenly hate those I cared for like brothers?
I encompass their fate… with unconditional vows
I want to throw it away, because of them I’m afraid
All I wanted was a place, to make me whole

Teach me life! ‘Cause I gotta find a sign
Just break the ice, already about to resign?
Teach me love! ‘Cause I’ve got to understand
Look above… and take command

How will I know it is true? In a world full of You
I need a guide over there, to take me through
You need no seer, nor light, you’re gifted with hindsight
So prepare for this fight… before the end…

Just fight before the end
Why are you free now, you deserved to die in jail
Need to run for my life, otherwise I will fail
I will burn you all with the flare of a thousand suns
Leave me be all alone so I don’t harm anyone
Must I fight? Lore is at hand…

No! I’ll never turn on what I own
Angel of disaster, blightbringer, ravager
No! I won’t exit the stage alone
Crafter of life and hope, newborn of the sun

Every time I give life, death is cast upon my road
Thundering urge to create, yet destruction is bestowed...
Push! I’m pushing deeper, I’m pushing deeper
The true power is the one you don’t control

A brighter light is guiding the memories of men
Like beacons pointing the way out of the darkest den
Fabled and reckoned in the new religion hive
T’was but a grain of sand, a glimpse at your insides

Warder Québec

Quebec City based Warder was formed back in 2004 as a tribute band.
Work on original material was initiated around 2008. The result is a concept-driven hybrid of bombastic yet technical heavy metal at the core with sporadic incursions into the progressive, power metal and hard rock genres.
In 2012, Warder completed their first official release: Escape Plan EP.
