1. Ashes

From the recording Ashes (EP)


Death swooped from the sky
A show of force unjustified
An act of courage and resistance
Present now and evermore

At the end of a world
Which millions will bewail
In the ruins of a dream
We watch the beast prevail
All those voices silenced
By a jester wearing the crown
Sing in defiance
In the ashes of our world you will drown

Salvation swooped from the sky
Withering hope left no other choice
An act of foolish cowardice
Inspires futile terror

At the end of a world
For which few will ever yearn
Their delusions had brought us
Close to the point of no return
For all their slanderous eloquence
We have nothing but scorn
From the ashes of a fool’s paradise we’ll soar
