The Chains - Evanescence

The ExperienceIf you don't love me now you will never love me again... Final boarding call if you want to prove your loyalty...
The Vibe: Confidence.
The Topic: Loyalty.
The Value: Commitment.
The Tension: Down comes the night (Danger) VS. Never break the chain (Loyalty to the heroic end, bitter or not).

Music video: Evanescence plays in a dystopic blood red setting that underscores the danger and imminent threat of the lyrics. This is your last chance to love.

The Meaning of The Chain: If you don't love me now you will never love me again. Up until this point there was repentance. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Not anymore. In every story there is a point of no return. It's the moment when promises and loyalty - the chain - are tested: I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain. It's the last shot you'll ever get at making up for past mistakes - d-mn your love d-mn your lies. The context of Gears 5 is friendship and camaraderie: you're at war for survival and if you'll ever have someone's back now is the time. The lyrics go deeper. Past friendship, to love that's tested in the darkest of nights.

Ask yourself: Will your love stand the test and go the distance?

Soundtrack: Gears 5 (2020)

LYRICS:


Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night

Break the silence
D-mn the dark
D-mn the light

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain
You would never break the chain

Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise

Running in the shadows
D-mn your love
D-mn your lies

Break the silence
Damn the dark
Damn the light

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain
You would never break the chain

Chain, keep us together
Chain, keep us together
Chain, keep us together
Chain, keep us together

Chain, keep us together
Chain, keep us together
Chain, keep us together
Chain, keep us together

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain
You would never break the chain
