lyrics

Drawn from the creators seed
Reflecting the image beneath
Sent as a sentry to learn from their fears and desires

I search for the reasons within the light
I feel it struggle with fear when I call it friend
Gaze down at the waves captured by the sun
And cling to the missive from hidden ones
I wait for fulfilment of promises held
Give me a sign to escape from this home
This hell

Pleading with the stars for a sign
Whispers from heaven bring tears to my eyes
Winding down the road to the past
Pray for the ancient mourn each moment lost
Angels carved in stone by the hand
Solomon's Son follows them down to the sand
Ending like I knew that it would
Black stains the hands that hold Taman Shud

Rise the console is dead
I end my sentence to the sky
Leaving the grace of the founders behind
Fight for control over fear
I am able to find my own feet
Wading through the stifling thickness of the air

A face with a thousand names

Chasing traces that hide in anonymity
Descendents calling my name
Bedlam beneath me, memory guide and shelter me
Jester has stolen my name
All of my goodwill has died

All your stars are setting now
Take me with you lay me down

Won't you waves come wash away the burning
I saw you from my hiding place you moved me
Still a bitter goodnight kiss
The first, the only
I know I shall not see dawn... it's ending

Holy heaven knocked me clean off my feet
Devils in disguise come to pray on your weak
On your lonely
Now I wander clutching
To the promises left behind
Taped to the wall
We will see you again

All your stars are setting now
Take me with you lay me down
I was only being kind
Absent memories stole your child
