lyrics

Eternal light that shone so bright, so rapidly can fade
The darkness of a soul inside, a faithless renegade
Before the will we're forced a side
These colours showing through the lies

Given means to a wish upon a star.

To walk along celestial shores
Create eternal troubled storms
To fill the hole inside once more
And help the heart and mind restore.

Asking for forgiveness so this guilt can fall asleep
Display the word so proudly there upon the mantelpiece
Maybe you'll denounce the crown
Until your life is at sundown

With fingers firmly crossed behind your back.

To walk along celestial shores
Create eternal troubled storms
To fill the hole inside once more
And help the heart and mind restore.

But when the words are spoken out realities can change,
With stories of distant time to stone the heart that's chained
Will my wings tear through my skin
And aim toward some hallowed king?

Soaring up into eternal sunlight?

To walk along celestial shores
They start eternal troubled storms
To fill the hole inside once more
And help the heart and mind restore.

The absence of a soul, a God-shaped hole,
You become the very thing you hate,
In trying to decide if you were wrong or you were right,
You gambled and you lost the fight
To bet against the howling pack,
You laid it all on black.

And on reflection, one single voice
Can't undo two-thousand ages past,
Through all your days, you'll not find the way
To break this crimson stained romance.
To place your faith in fortune
You'll find you're just a man.
