STATIC CRACKLES CANCELS OUT A MILLION VOICES UNDERGROUND WHERE DID THEY GO?

Resistance 02:47
RESISTANCE CAUGHT IN THE COMFORT OF MY TRAP WHERE IT'S EASIER TO DIE THAN TO FIGHT BACK HALF-DEAD, BUT I HOPE IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO TAKE SOME ACTION AND CHANGE MY FATE HOLD ON HOLD ON RESISTANCE! LOST IN THE WHITE-OUT, I'M UNDER THE SNOW THE MORE I STRUGGLE THE FURTHER DOWN I GO, DOWN I GO HALF-DEAD, BUT I HOPE IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO TAKE SOME ACTION AND CHANGE MY FATE HOLD ON HOLD ON RESISTANCE! RESISTANCE! RESISTANCE! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESISTANCE!
