lyrics

Light
Light and air
Intertwine
Create life
Fear and despair
Snuff out hope
And tighten the noose around your gasping throat

So much time wasted
Begging in vain
A life led in constant searching
Now ends in the cold and the rain
The air grows thinner
Gasping desperately
The flame grows dimmer
Until in darkness I no longer see

Look to the skies above
With your questions and your prayers
Look up above
And find only despair
Look to the skies above
And find only broken hope
Find bitter cold
And an absence of air

Hollow
Empty words
Lying tongues were spoken
Promises broken
Gone
Without a trace
Without any answer
Like the air below the waves and above in the heavens

Once the air would carry me
In a distant dream
Now it abandons me
I spread my wings and crash into the sea
Once the sun shone hope and love
And the sky above
Once the night held mystery
Now it brings only pain and fear to me

Look to the skies above
With your questions and your prayers
Look up above
And find only despair
Look to the skies above
And find only broken hope
Find bitter cold
And an absence of air

Now I beg the stars to fall
The waves to cease
The mountains to crumble
Now I feel only despair
Feel only the cold
In absence of air
