"The Labyrinth" is a record single performed by Poets of the Fall from their 2016 album, Clearview. An early version of "The Labyrinth" had been intended to be used in Quantum Break. August 16, 2016, Sam Lake (creative director of Remedy Entertainment) admitted that contractual issues occurred and prevented their using the song in the game.[1][note 1] October 1, 2016, Lake later revealed the Poets song intended for the game was "The Labyrinth".[2][note 2]

LyricsEdit

Down on your knees to find your way
Through this labyrinth of whys
Time and again, rig and replay
When nothing justifies
Or leaves a trace to tell
A way out of your shell
To sample life
Time is a wraith
At the point of no return
A memory of the light of day
Time is ablaze
And so we burn
Until the ashes of our lives
Are blown away
Wish I had the power to make you stay
Out through the frozen haze of grey
If constellations align
More brutally sliced by lie than blade
Three acts of cruel design
Disconnect the dots
And against all odds
Still survive
Time is a wraith
At the point of no return
A memory of the light of day
Time is ablaze
And so we burn
Until the ashes of our lives
Are blown away
Wish I had the power to make you stay
For the sake of thrill
Would you own the kill?
Would you impose your will
On another still?
Time is a wraith
At the point of no return
A memory of the light of day
Time is ablaze
And so we burn
Until the ashes of our lives
Are blown away
Wish I had the power to make you stay

NotesEdit

  1. @SamLakeRMD: "We had a @PoetsOfTheFall song for #QuantumBreak, but sadly ran out of time with dumb contractual complications neither of us could affect"
  2. @SamLakeRMD: "The song The Labyrinth from the @PoetsOfTheFall album #Clearview was created for @QuantumBreak but sadly we couldn't get it into the game." [...]"Silver lining: the version of The Labyrinth on @PoetsOfTheFall #Clearview is even better than the version we'd have used in @QuantumBreak."
