lyrics

Eyes that fall on empty faces
Broken hearts that once held places
Dear to all that failed to meet their expectations

Set atop a mountain waiting
To be picked among the flowers waiting
From the false light that causes us to want it all

My head has said that I’ve been wrong
My body stands still, my face still long
But my soul stands bold, my faith still standing strong

We turn to watch our fathers look on
Their eyes so worried that we’ll do what they’ve done
They hold our mothers as to say their only son

We’ll make a way and then do them proud

For the Kings they revel
And the Queens they dance all night
With the fires raging
The shadow hands take flight
Not a soul was wanting
Nor a heart had need to fight
For they know as the moon glows
The sun still shines at night

How many times have you seen the people falter
Stumbling sideways losing all their steam
Feels like the world is spinning fast
Your feet cannot keep up
Your mind is racing your pace is quickly lost

How many days do you feel like time’s been wasted
Its all planned out no way you’d miss a beat
You look to your left
You notice that your friends have all moved on
By the time you look back your day is almost done

Are we cursed or can we figure it out
That we lie to our hearts and fill our head with doubt
Can we write our book on life
If our faith has not been broken down
At least once
We will see and we will be
For the Kings they revel
And the Queens they dance all night
With the fires raging
The shadow hands take flight
Not a soul was wanting
Nor a heart had need to fight
For they know as the moon glows
The sun still shines at night
