Track Name: Beyond The Valley
Rattle that cage, yeah you’re filled with rage
Eyes wide open while you dig your grave
Hold on tight to the past tonight
Some day soon you’ll be seein’ the light
Fly through the air like an owl at night
Or diggin’ in the dirt like a mouse that’s right
A bird of prey ain’t gonna bring you down
It might be time that you were leavin’ town
Stick it to the man 'fore he sticks it to you
It don’t seem right to be here livin’ with you
Try to rise above all the muck and the mud
Take a little breath and leave me here as you run yeah

Beyond the valley, one dies for the many
Beyond the valley, there’s a higher truth yeah
Beyond the valley, one dies for the many
Beyond the valley

Spinnin’ like a top and taking everything down
I can see you comin’ pretty soon you’re gonna drown
The fire in the stars you can take it too far
You try to forget but we all know who you are
Rattle that cage yeah you’re filled with rage
Eyes wide open while you dig your grave
Hold on tight to the past tonight
Some day soon you’ll be seein’ the light yeah

Beyond the valley, one dies for the many
Beyond the valley, there’s a higher truth yeah
Beyond the valley, one dies for the many
Beyond the valley yeah

Gone too soon and it just ain’t right
