lyrics

NO DARKNESS SHALL FIND ME

Open fire, open flame
All for nothing, it’s all the same
A breath to bring this structure down
Tongues that whisper, knees that bow
Once the silver scraped the sky
Some vivid dream, or just a lie
A place in the sun

Left to reason, prone to guess
Frozen hallways overhead
Alone we’re sleeping under fear
Wishing the signs to appear
We trade the cold irons of the age
Wondering where we lost our way
Our place in the sun

O captive eye, what you have seen
A waning voice, the world machine
Take whatever comes along
Take my spirit, take my song
Severed lines can’t hold us in
So when it spirals to an end
To a place in the sun
It will be done
To a place in the sun
It will be done

Where no darkness shall find me…
