    Searching for a light
    In the darkest of night
    We bury our fears
    And try to keep quiet
    But the anger inside
    Is blinding our eyes
    Light a spark and let it burn
    Keep the flame alive
    Let it burn
    A lighthouse in the ocean

    Can you
    Can you save me
    Before it's too late
    'Cause I can't break free
    From this hell inside of me

    Before it's too late
    Between heaven and hell
    I've been here before
    Tear me apart
    I don't care anymore
    Throw my heart
    To the wolves at the door
    Light a spark and let it burn
    Keep the flame alive
    Let it burn
    Before it's too late

    Can you save me
    Before it's too late
    'Cause I can't break free
    From this hell inside of me
    Before it's too late
    'Cause I can't break free
    From this hell inside of me

    The fault is my own
    I stand here alone
    Begging for answers that I need to know
    How can I let go

    The fault is my own
    I stand here alone
    Begging for answers that I need to know
    How can I let go

    Can you save me
    Before it's too late
    'Cause I can't break free
    From this hell inside of me
    Before it's too late
    'Cause I can't break free
    From this hell inside of me

    The return
    And the chasing of shadows
    The return
    And the chasing of light

    On this mountain
    Out from this dark

    The return
    And the chasing of shadows
    The return
    And thy changing to light

    Upon this mountain
    Upon this rite

    Carving the voices
    Into the speech
    Carving the voices
    Unto the mind
    Carving the voices
    Into the self
    Carving the voices
    Unto the dream

    Carving the voices
    Into the speech
    Carving the voices
    Unto the spear

    Carving the voices
    Carving the voices

    I speak, I am the speech

    Carving the voices
    Carving the voices
    Carving the voices
    Carving the voices

    Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!

    Ô toi, le plus savant et le plus beau des Anges,
    Dieu trahi par le sort et privé de louanges,
    Ô Prince de l'exil, à qui l'on a fait tort
    Et qui, vaincu, toujours te redresses plus fort,

    Toi qui sais tout, grand roi des choses souterraines,
    Guérisseur familier des angoisses humaines,
    Toi qui, même aux lépreux, aux parias maudits,
    Enseignes par l'amour le goût du Paradis,



    Ô toi qui de la Mort, ta vieille et forte amante,
    Engendras l'Espérance, — une folle charmante!
    Toi qui fais au proscrit ce regard calme et haut
    Qui damne tout un peuple autour d'un échafaud.
    Toi qui sais en quels coins des terres envieuses
    Le Dieu jaloux cacha les pierres précieuses,



    Ô Satan,Ô Satan
    Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!
    Ô Satan

    Toi dont l'oeil clair connaît les profonds arsenaux
    Où dort enseveli le peuple des métaux,
    Toi dont la large main cache les précipices
    Au somnambule errant au bord des édifices,

    Just the other day I looked at my father
    It was the first time I saw he'd grown old
    Canyons through his skin and the rivers that made them
    Carved the stories I was told
    He said
    "Son, I have watched you fade in
    You will watch me fade out
    I have watched you fade in
    You will watch me fade out
    When the grip leaves my hand
    I know you won't let me down
    Go and find your way
    Leave me in your wake
    Always push through the pain
    And don't run away from change
    Never settle
    Make your mark
    Hold your head up
    Follow your heart
    Follow your heart"
    Just the other day I stared at the ocean
    With every new wave another must go
    One day you'll remember us laughing
    One day you'll remember my passion
    One day you'll have one of your own
    I say
    "Son, I have watched you fade in
    You will watch me fade out
    When the grip leaves my hand
    I know you won't let me down
    Go and find your way
    Leave me in your wake
    Always push through the pain
    And don't run away from change
    Never settle
    Make your mark
    Hold your head up
    Follow your heart
    Follow your heart, follow your heart, follow your heart"
    We all get lost sometimes trying to find what we're looking for
    We all get lost sometimes trying to find what we're looking for
    I have watched you fade in
    You will watch me fade out
    I have watched you fade in
    You will watch me fade out
    When the grip leaves my hand
    I know you won't let me down
    Go and find your way
    Leave me in your wake
    Always push through the pain
    And don't run away from change
    Never settle
    Make your mark
    Hold your head up
    Follow your heart
    Follow your heart
    Follow your heart
    When the morning comes and takes me
    I promise I have taught you everything that you need
    In the night you'll dream of so many things
    But find the ones that bring you life, and you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me
    That's where you'll find me"

    Bloodied corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    Dying mother forced to reconcile
    A hellish landscape just to feed her child
    Our interest waning, we desensitize
    Abusive power now becomes enshrined

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl
    The joke in the end that no one will know
    We're dying for nothing at all

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall (fall)
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl (crawl)
    The joke in the end that no one will know (know)
    We're dying for nothing at all

    Bloodied corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    Shining skies will bring on death below
    A compromising choice now rings hollow
    Self-interest gaining, killing monetized
    A million lives to boost the bottom line

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl
    The joke in the end that no one will know
    We're dying for nothing at all

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall (fall)
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl (crawl)
    The joke in the end that no one will know (know)
    We're dying for nothing at all

    Bloodied corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    My fear is teething
    Through salt and sweat
    The air decreasing
    Burns with regret

    My fear is teething
    Through salt and sweat
    The air decreasing
    Burns with regret

    Crumbled cities scattered far and wide
    The myth of mercy buried deep inside

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl
    The joke in the end that no one will know
    We're dying for nothing at all

    The harder we fight, the faster we fall (fall)
    Stabbed in the back, defeated we crawl (crawl)
    The joke in the end that no one will know (know)
    We're dying for nothing at all

    Bloodied corpses, broken bones reveal
    A throng of clashes crushed, our nightmare sealed
    Amongst the shadows and the stones
    Amongst the shadows and the stones
    Amongst the shadows and the stones

    I know there's something wrong stop making it up
    We're too proud to see we've lost more than our trust
    And now there's nothing left, well's dead and dried up
    Its disease has left a foul taste in our cup
    It just keeps on flowing
    And we drift on knowing
    It just keeps on flowing
    This babble from our mouth

    Who we are I fear most of the time
    Carry on shuffling in order and in line
    Who we are I fear most of the time
    Carry on whipping boy, stare into the light
    Stare into the light
    And it feels familiar for good reason

    I want us to break the case we're in
    We've worn it for too long, this catatonic skin
    Remove all the parts
    I want us to face the shape we're in
    A world of confusion awaits our sons and kin
    Lets reset it all
    Lets reset it all

    Well it stings and it hurts, is this how it's meant to be
    Well it stings and it hurts, is this how it's meant to be
    Well it stings and it hurts, a small price to pay to be
    In control and rebirth what our future's meant to be

    Who we are I fear most of the time
    So carry on whipping boy, stare into the light
    I want us to face the shape we're in
    A world of confusion awaits our sons and kin
    Let's reset it all (We are, we are, we are)
    Let's reset it all (We are, we are, we are)

    These words of wisdom come with lack of vision
    (We are, we are, we are)
    This is the first day I've ever had to stand and witness
    These words of wisdom come with lack of vision
    (We are, we are, we are)
    This is the first day I've ever had to stand and witness
    These words of wisdom come with lack of vision
    This is the first day I've ever had to stand and witness
    These words of wisdom come with lack of vision
    This is the first day I've ever had to stand and witness

    Am I a stranger in the dark?
    Or am I someone you can trust indeed?
    Am I following too close?
    Or am I right where I’m supposed to be?

    Am I a million miles away?
    Or am I so close I can almost reach?
    Did I do it to myself?
    Or did I really mean what I believe?

    All I ever wanted was the blinding
    Because all I ever saw was just a name
    And all I ever wanted was to find it
    It’s time, I finally know just what it means

    To go off the rails, to go off the rails
    To go off the rails, to go off the rails

    Am I the fire, or the spark?
    Or am I here to be the room you heat?
    Am I everything you hoped?
    Or was my channel way too hard to reach?

    Is it more than I can take?
    Or is it everything I’ll ever need?
    What if I don’t know what to say?
    What if I’m not who I’m supposed to be?

    All I ever wanted was the blinding
    Because all I ever saw was just a name
    And all I ever wanted was to find it
    It’s time, I finally know just what it means

    To go off the rails, to go off the rails
    To go off the rails, to go off the rails

    To go off the rails, to go off the rails
    To go off the rails, to go off the rails

    Blood marks a trail
    Red paints the horizon
    Hunter's moon embraced with howling forlorn
    Daybreak revealed the marks
    Traces of a wounded leader
    Rules the lands from these woods and beyond

    These woods and beyond

    Race through the woods
    Hasten over the waters
    Run upon the frozen lakes
    Reach a higher ground
    That reveals the realm
    Under your might
    White kingdom of frost and ice

    Kingdom of frost and ice
    Kingdom of frost and ice

    Ruler of the frozen lands from these woods and beyond

    Embrace the hunter's moon with howling forlorn

    Under domes of anguish, I dwell…

    Through the bleak and bitter night
    Across the plains of blackened shards
    I call your hallowed name
    Bound by the shackles of time

    Cathedrals of mourning I'll find
    Cathedrals of mourning, now mine

    The soaring pinnacles touching the ashen sky…

    The gods of nightside realm
    Cold eyes carved in the stones
    Watching over these somber halls of wailing and fear

    For the ones who never die
    Dreaming through forgotten times
    I call your hallowed name
    From beyond the grim stars

    Not dead which eternal lie
    With stranger aeons death may die
    I call your hallowed name
    Chained by the sigils of moon

    I witness the rise of elder gods
    From the formless void
    Beyond the screaming stars

    New dawn that shall arrive
    Blood moon and evernight
    Now hear the call to arms
    Your banner high above the restless hordes

    Burning pits of sacrifice
    Hecatombs of broken hearts
    I call your hallowed name
    Ever-changing mistress of night

    Now the sky turns black and all shall fall…

    Darkness
    Bind me
    Fill me

    From beyond the stars
