Lyrics[]

Verse 1
Darkened dynasty
Endless rivalry
Meeting violently
You can’t change me
First it’s ebony
Then it’s ivory
Making revelry
You can’t break me

Verse 2
Can’t stop and I will never hit the brakes
All nine levels and no matter what it takes
All these places and their shadow figured shapes
Boutta make their last mistakes
There are no more escapes

Pre Chorus 1
Branches entwine
Through the dark so we can find
Ourselves in time
Before we lose our mind

Chorus 1
All lain aside
It’s written in our blood
Two souls divide
Our roots beneath the flood
We’ve lost control
Angels with bells do toll
No we can’t hide
The fire inside

Verse 3
Another casualty
Done waiting patiently
Call me your majesty
Don’t take too long
It’s my reality
Under the canopy
Of moonlit tragedy
I don’t belong!

Verse 4
Can’t stop and I will never veil my name
Buried lights and I’ve hidden all my shame
Will keep fighting ‘til there’s nothing left to claim
Watch my blade is taking aim
And you’re gonna end in flame

Pre Chorus 2
Branches entwine
Through the dark so we can find
Ourselves in time
Before we lose our mind

Chorus 2
All lain aside
It’s written in our blood
Two souls divide
Our roots beneath the flood
We’ve lost control
Angels with bells do toll
No we can’t hide
The fire...

Breakdown
...Inside of me!
Don’t push beneath!
Now I must prey!
Don’t drift away!
I’m not possessed! (I'm not possessed!)
I just can’t rest! (I just can’t rest!)
All trees decay! (All trees decay!)
Endless dismay! (Endless dismay!)

Chorus 3
All lain aside
It’s written in our blood
Two souls divide
Our roots beneath the flood
We’ve lost control
Angels with bells do toll
No we can’t hide

The fire inside
The fire inside
The fire inside

Trivia[]

  • The first two verses are sung from Dante's point of view. This becomes apparent with the mention of Ebony & Ivory, as well as the driving character of Dante himself. The next two verses are sung from the point of view of Vergil, Dante's older twin brother. By how arrogant these lines sound, it is clear that they are a reference to Vergil's song from DMC5.
    • "Can’t stop and I will never veil my name" — a line that creates a nice contrast between the "I am reclaimer of my name" from Bury the Light. In the past Vergil thought he couldn't lose, however this does happen in DMC and Mundus gives him a new name, turning him into a pawn. In DMC5, Vergil manages to get his old name back.
    • "Buried lights and I’ve hidden all my shame" — a line that is also a reference to the song Bury the Light, "Bury the light deep within!"
  • The line "All nine levels and no matter what it takes" refers to the Nine Circles of Hell described in Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy".
