Abby starts her adventure to God-knows-where.
         The world sucks today, Abby thought. She wasn’t sure if she meant just today or the entirety of the era. So much had happened in her short life that she was simply miserable from it. Death, destruction, rights being taken away… yep, it was definitely the era that was getting to her. Still, there wasn’t much she could do from her house. Sure, she had been an armchair activist for awhile, but things just got away from her. And the direction of the states was still moving down.
         Something caught her ear just then. It was the sound of a barrage of feet. She looked outside only to find that there was marching in the streets. Most people had their fist up in the air, and they were being led by a man in a full-length cape. He looked right at her as they were passing, and to her horror, his eyes were a bright red. Still, she felt the excitement and momentum of the parade of people, and she called out, “What’s going on?”
         No one answered her. They were silent in their march, and were dead set on a destination. Abby quickly grabbed her coat and followed them, catching the end of the line. Which is exactly where she thought she was going.

Lyrics

Survival
Survival
One more goddamn day when I know what I want
And my want will be considered tonight, considered tonight
Just another day when all that I want
Will mark me as a sinner tonight, I'm a sinner tonight, yeah
People can no longer cover their eyes
If this disturbs you, then walk away
You will remember the night you were struck by the sight of
Ten thousand fists in the air
Power unrestrained and dead on the mark
Is what we will deliver tonight, deliver tonight
Pleasure fused with pain is triumph of the soul
Will make you shiver tonight, will make you shiver tonight, yeah
People can no longer cover their eyes
If this disturbs you, then walk away
You will remember the night you were struck by the sight of
Ten thousand fists in the air
We are the ones that will open your mind
Leave the weak and the haunted behind
(We are the ones that will open your mind)
Leave the weak and the haunted behind
(We are the ones that will open your mind)
Leave the weak and the haunted behind
(We are the ones that will open your mind)
Leave the weak and the haunted behind
People can no longer cover their eyes
If this disturbs you, then walk away
You will remember the night you were struck by the sight of
Ten thousand fists in the air
Ten thousand fists in the air
Ten thousand fists in the air
