about

The tribe has failed. Crumbling under infighting and paranoia, the surviving members split into two groups - one to survive and care for the incapacitated, the other to reach the northern city by any means necessary.

lyrics

[Scout:]
The silent paths in wilderness
I’ve walked so many times
Familiar roads are fading
As the poison consumes my mind

[Jonathan:]
Everything I'm fighting for
Is gone and far behind
Murdered by the tyrant king’s design

With every day a fight to live on
We'll fade away
But can we still be something more
So give us all a chance to live on
Before the virus takes us all

Ahead of the hunters
We hide from their stare
We're lost, we're weak
And we're helpless
Their eyes everywhere
They're closing in
As far as we wander
We're reaching the end of our lives
We walk beneath the poison skies

[Cameron:]
Fever crawls in all of us
And I can only wait
Writing down the warnings
Of affliction as we decay

[Celine:]
Living out as best we can
Our final days of life
Holding back the poison in the tribe

With every day a fight to live on
After the virus takes us all

Ahead of the hunters
We hide from their stare
We're lost, we're weak
And we're helpless
Their eyes everywhere
They're closing in
As far as we wander
We're reaching the end of our lives
We walk beneath the poison skies

[Girard:]
Can't let the traitor in our midst
Destroy my chance to be remembered
A murderer is standing tall
And all the rest refuse to see

Come with me
And we'll be free
From all the laws
That drag us down
Come with me
And we'll leave the weak behind
Come with me
And your lives are going
To matter in the end

[Cameron:]
I have to follow on
To honour her name
Perhaps for the world

[Jonathan:]
For duty, so there can be hope
My life and my daughter must wait

[All:]
And so we tear the tribe
We say goodbye
[Celine:] Find the city for me
Before regret has time to rise
Our roads divide

Push ahead
Waste no time
Prove that we were once alive
And leave them all behind

[Cameron:] And so I walk on for the future
[Jonathan:] So she can live at least for now
[Rook:] The hunters coming from behind
[Girard:] We must win out our race with death
[Celine:] And every day I'm fading further
[Scout:] With fog encroaching on my mind
[Everyone:] And so in time, it takes us all

Ahead of the hunters
We hide from their stare
We're lost, we're weak
And we're helpless
Their eyes everywhere
They're closing in
As far as we wander
We're reaching the end of our lives
We live and breathe the poison

Ahead of the hunters
We hide from their stare
We're lost, we're weak
And we're helpless
Their eyes everywhere
They're closing in
And now, at the ending
We split up and say our goodbyes
Walk on beneath the poison skies
