A Realm Reborn

    Answers (Theme of Bahamut Prime) 
I close my eyes, tell us why must we suffer?
Release your hands, for your will drags us under.
My legs grow tired, tell us where must we wander?
How can we carry on if redemption's beyond us?

To all of my children in whom Life flows abundant.
To all of my children in whom Death hath passed his judgement.
The soul yearns for honour, and the flesh the hereafter.
Look to those who walked before to lead those who walked after.

Shining is the Land's light of justice.
Ever flows the Land's well of purpose.
Walk free, walk free, walk free, believe...
The Land is alive, so believe...

Now open your eyes while our plight is repeated.
Still deaf to our cries, lost in hope we lie defeated.
Our souls have been torn and our bodies forsaken.
Bearing sins of the past, for our future is taken.

War born of strife, these trials persuade us not.
[Feel what?] [Learn what?]
Words without sound, these lies betray our thoughts.
Mired by a plague of doubt, the Land, she mourns.
[See what?] [Hear what?]
Judgment binds all we hold to a memory of scorn.
Tell us why, given Life, we are meant to die, helpless in our cries?

Thy Life is a riddle, to bear rapture and sorrow.
To listen, to suffer, to entrust unto tomorrow.
In one fleeting moment, from the Land doth life flow.
Yet in one fleeting moment, for anew it doth grow.
In that same fleeting moment,
Thou must live
Die
And know.

    Rise of the White Raven (Theme of Nael van Darnus) 
Corvus fortis
Corvus fortis
Corvus fortis ascendit
Superne videt praeteritum
Praesentem et futurum videt

Res evertuntur repente
Ad unum omnes sunt mortui dei
Machinae regnabunt in caelo
Ratio regnabit in terra

Corvum candidum exhilaramus
Ecce! Extendit trans mundi alas
Vocat lucem rubram excidii
Fulget luce rubrae victoriae

Imperium!
Imperium!
Imperium ave!
Ave imperium!
Ave imperium!

Videte!
Testate adventu fati
Videte!
Testate adventu Dalamud!

The dauntless raven
The dauntless raven
The dauntless raven rises up
From on high, he marks the past;
Marks the present; marks the future

A revolution is upon us
All the gods are dead
Machines will rule the heavens
Reason will rule the land

Exalt we the White Raven
Behold! His wings enfold the world
He calls down the red light of destruction
He glows with the red light of victory

The Empire!
The Empire!
Hail to the Empire!
Hail to the Empire!
Hail to the Empire!

Look!
Bear witness to the advent of Fate
Look!
Bear witness to the advent of Dalamud!

    Under the Weight (Theme of Titan) 
Wrought from the rock that stands upon old,
With heart of black and a stare that's cold.
Cold are the hands that grasp at your soul,
'Fore the graves are dug and the death knells toll.

Tempered in the flows of the mountain's core,
Where the rage runs red twixt shore and shore.
Shorn from the world 'neath the blazing sun,
Bound to the dark, for the light I shun!

Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (In hell I wait)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Succumb to the hate that corrupts your fate!

Into the dark of an endless night,
Where the pulse of the land offers no respite.
In spite of the blood that was spilled before,
You whet your blades, you thirst for more.

Now kneel overdweller, your lord commands,
There's no salvation for the sons of man.
The skies will tremble and the earth will quake,
From the crumbling walls no one escapes!

Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (In hell I wait)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
Bow down, overdweller! (Under the weight)
I'll drag you right down to the seventh gate!

    Through the Maelstrom (Theme of Leviathan) 
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Endless!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Send us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Breathless!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Deathless!)

Leviathan! Leviathan! (Restless!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Test us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Tend us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Mend us!)

Drifting, in the realm beyond all knowing.
Forsaken, shedding tears of glass.
Now tumbling, from the boundless heavens, taken.
White moondrops, burning indigo!

Leviathan! Leviathan! (Endless!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Send us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Breathless!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Deathless!)

Leviathan! Leviathan! (Restless!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Test us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Bend us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Rend us!)

Leviathan! Leviathan! (Vengeance!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Penance!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (Send us!)
Leviathan! Leviathan! (End us!)

Silence, from the knife that softly severs.
Mistaken, for an unsung prayer.
Now rising from the soundless Deep. Awaken!
White fury, blinding indigo!

Swell, ye seas of old; Leviathan! Leviathan!
Surging tides grow bold; Leviathan!
Seething currents whorl; Leviathan! Leviathan!
To swallow up the world; Leviathan!

    Thunder Rolls (Theme of Ramuh) 
Ula menida tula oh (Hoary Arbor, Lord of Light)
Tela omnida tula ei (Thine advent quelleth creeping night)
Ona ramuhda deme os (The wicked burn, their pyres bright)
Nola tulama tela ei (Smote by Levin's blinding might)

Soul without a name, heed my call
Sin doth stain the hearts of us all
The worm hath burrowed deep and hath grown
Soon he too shall reap what is sown

Step into the storm, know its mercy
Let the wind and the rain crash down over thee
Lightning bright, thunder bold
Guiding us forevermore

Soul fallen from grace, ware thee well
Judgment thou must face, thine own hell
The worm stirreth within, black as night
Breeding deeper sin, foul its blight

Soul, thine end is nigh. Take mine hand
All life must return to the land
Lingered hath the worm, overlong
Purge thy flesh of fear and be strong

Step in from the storm, praise its mercy
Let the sting of the rain ne'er stray far from thee
Lightning bright, thunder bold
Freeing us forevermore

Now lift thine heavy head and vanquish thy sorrow
Lightning doth strike
Thunder doth roll

Now turn thy gaze ahead and look to the morrow
Lightning shall strike
Thunder shall roll on

    Oblivion (Theme of Shiva) 
Staring at death, I take a breath, there's nothing left.
Now close my eyes, for one last time, and say goodbye.
Lying naked while the snow falls all around me;
Drifting closer to the edge but She won't have me!
Wake up in sweat, full of regret, try to forget.
These memories, lurking beneath, lost in a dream...

Unchosen paths, a broken past, forespoken wrath.
The pain won't cease, I'll find no peace, no sweet release.
Fragile creatures, we are taught to fear the Reaper;
Ever running, we are dead before we meet Her!
These voices telling me let it go! (Let it all go!)
I try and try but I can't say no! (Try and say no!)
This endless nightmare has just begun! (Nowhere to run!)
My heart is dragging me down into oblivion!

The endless lies, I've cast aside, locked them in ice.
Steeled is my soul, my blood grown cold, I've gained control.
Fearless creatures, we all learn to fight the Reaper; Can't defeat Her, so instead I'll have to be Her!
These voices screaming to let it go! (Never let go!)
This time I'm screaming back no no no! (Go on say no!)
My mind's made up, yeah my fear is gone! (Where have you gone?)
Open my eyes now here I come, oblivion!

For the last time (I won't say goodbye)
For the last time (I won't say goodbye)
For the last time (I won't say goodbye)
For the last time

Heavensward

    Heavensward 
Beneath the gazing stars
Vales deep and forests dark
Betrayed by loyal hands, Her wrath stirred

Bound fast unto our fate
One path, one burden great
Yet ever do our aching souls point Heavensward
Ever ring outs our song

Yes, ever do our aching souls march Heavensward
As they've done for so long

To their trespass
We are Witness
Here to pass this
Final sentence

No forgiveness
No deliverance
Only Justice
Only Vengeance

Wills unbending
Faith unending
Stone defending
Now our steel shall sing

Guide us, O mighty Fury
Guide us to victory!

Dragon part (Dragon / English)
Dys an sohm in / Our slumber disturbed
Rohs an kyn ala na / All my brothers wake
Mah morn narr / The saviors must perish
Sahl djahs afah an / Vengeance will be ours
Eorzea!

    Dragonsong 
Children of the land, do you hear?
Echoes of truths that once rang clear.
Two souls intertwined,
One true love they did find,
Bringing land and heavens near.

But flames that burn full bright soon fell dark.
Memories dimmed by shadowed hearts.
In the waxing gloom,
Did wane the lover's moon,
Watching as their worlds drift apart.

One soul's cry, a passion dwelling within.
Sacrifice, a final plea to her kin!
Yet this bond of hope,
By treachery was broke,
Scattering her words to the wind.

Swelling overlong, seas of blood, are a song
And death an afterthought,
To those who fight for naught.

A throne, lying empty...
A reign incomplete.
Alone for eternity...
A pain without cease.

Children of the land answer this:
Why must you turn to empty bliss?
Why break trust?
Why turn the past to dust?
Seeking solace in the abyss.

Tell me why create a circle none can break?
Why must you let go the life you were bestowed?
This I'll fear I'll never know!

Never know...

    Unbending Steel (Theme of Ravana) 
High on high I stand,
Gazing down to see
The endless garden
Awaiting me!

Red bloometh the rose of conviction.
And red bloometh the rose of hate.
Yes, red bloometh the roses of contest!
Firmly bound to its fate!

And the war it wageth on!
The storm it rageth on!
The bold ever fight on!
Their lives, echoed in song!

HAH!

Fall, like snow, they fall.
Petals plucked and strewn.
Yet from their seeds grow
This war anew!

Blood trickling down from my fullers.
And blood trickling down from mine hands.
Yes, blood trickling down to Hydaelyn.
Until I alone stand!

And the war still wageth on!
The storm still rageth on!
The bold blindly march on!
Their lives lost in a Song!

    Locus (Theme of Alexander Midas/Gordias) 
Seeking the peace of reason
Sheep in a peaceless season
Reason to keep believing
Waken the beast who's sleeping

Let go this destiny, you're caught in a trance
Ever marking time inside a dream, no sign of advance
You see, the mortal coil we serve is taut like a spring
Step back! Two-step, two-step, two-step one two three

Our world's a fantasy, no more than a test
Ever feeding off the fallacy creating this mess
Deep down inside this bleak machine with all the rest
Break free! Two-phase, two-phase electricity

Time turning up the volume
Time turning on us always
No time enough tomorrow
For turning back to where we began

Twenty-two sectors tested
Fragments in one direction
Celestial noise detected
Delirium unsuspected
Static tuned in to reason
Time in the aether deepens
Transmissions blink uncompleted
Seven two three two three...<send>

Arrested destiny, alone in a trance
No escaping from this waking dream, no hope for advance,
You see, the mortal coil we serve is naught but a spring
Unwind! Too slow, too quick, too much to believe

Your world's a fantasy, you've failed the test
Ever forging all new fallacies creating more mess
Directly through this bleak machine, with all of the rest
DC! Dying, dying, electricity

Falling back right into the system of
Falling back on all that's erased
When fighting back right out of this system
Means falling back right into this space

Yes, falling back right in with the system
Who'll see you falling back to the end
When falling back is better than simply
Falling back into pieces again

Silent steel breathing, breathing
Memory writing, reading
Error! Repeat deleting
Radicals flowing free and

Energy slowly seeping
Suspending all disbelief in
Synergy with our being
Synapses fire in three, then...

    Fiend (Theme of Sephirot) 
What is it like when you pull back the curtain
And realize every wrong is a right?
Your world is rusted like a dirty razor
The edge is calling tonight

The edge is calling tonight
The edge is calling tonight
The sun is setting, darkness taking over
A date with chaos and you're dressed to the nines

Salt of the earth salting your own fields
Road to destruction that is true and tried
You walk the path laid before you
The call of reason, you refuse to abide

Necessity is an inventive mother
Promising sanctum that She cannot provide
She is the hand that rocks the cradle
The wind that breaks the bough and leaves you to die

And there She leaves you to die
And there She leaves you to die
You'll find slumber when the world comes tumbling down
Sweet dreams, baby. Sleep tight!

Retreat where lesser men lead
Flee from what you do not see
Heed the dark within your being
Turn away
Disobey

I'm the end and the beginning
The faith that feeds the unbelieving
A tightening knot to staunch the bleeding
Say my name
Say my name
Sephirot

The seventh hell's become your seventh heaven
Rose of redemption but a thorn in your pride
Waste no more time fighting your demons
Lay down your arms and let the evil inside

And then you let it inside
And then you let it inside
You let it eat you till there's nothing left at all
So you can feel that you are truly alive

Better to serve in a waking nightmare
Than rule in their paradise
What is gold, always glitters
But it still comes with an unpayable price

Treading out upon the stagnant waters
Our savior waiting for a turn in the tide
You are the night at the end of the tunnel
The empty void where the serpent lies

Where the serpent lies
Where the serpent lies
The angels graze in the meadows of excess
They must needs go that the devils drive

Retreat where lesser men lead
Flee from what you do not see
Concede your mind unto the fiend
Turn away
Debts are paid

I'm the end and the beginning
The drug that gives the wretched meaning
The answer every soul is seeking
Say my name
Say my name
Sephirot!

    Equilibrium (Theme of Sophia) 
The sigh of the shifting sea
The kiss of the salt-sweet breeze
The white of her silken dress, stained in red

A memory fading fast
Her mother sits, eyes downcast
A torn uniform in hand, farewells unsaid

That once in certainty, lost in grief
A daughter's desperate cries, unheard pleas
Forsaken, beaten, tried, on her knees
A prayer passes from her lips
Into her soul the Goddess whispers:

"A heartbeat without harmony
Is moonlight without dark
The heart seeketh equilibrium
With balance will your worry part.

So still this broken melody,
And therewith shoulder thee.
One last step only leaving
An empty hearth down by the sea.
An empty hearth down by the sea."

Stormblood

    Revolutions 
Sing, a song of dawn
Dawn, the day reborn
Breathe deep of the dawn before the storm

This hearth, this home
Wrested forth from tired fingers
Bathed in blood and sealed in stone
Souls scarred, twelve-fold
Beckoned by the bells of vengeance, spirits bold

A lover lost, a family torn
A solemn pyre, raised to rouse the slumbering heaven
Fire in your eyes, fire in your hearts,
Steeled as you sound the horns of war
Yet know the cost, through who shall mourn
When light is quenched
That another might burn brighter
Let not the rays of justice blind
E'er trust in grace and she shall guide

Soft is the breeze that can set a petal free
And yet 'tis the storm that doth see the petal soar
High are the trees in the groves of liberty
Till unstirring stars consign her to memory
One kingdom's fall is another kingdom's freedom
One sovereign's war is another sovereign's peace
One mother's pride is another mother's sorrow
Their tears both soak the land that they love

Two lives, two swords
Given in to shadowed whispers, wicked words
Yet early gloom doth louder dawn
A rival's pride, for the oaths that spur her onward
Your time is come, a choice bestowed
Tonight, for unsung sins atone

    Beauty's Wicked Wiles (Theme of Lakshmi) 
Night.
Embrace Her worldly delights, tonight

In time you shall follow
In time you shall follow
Behold as our burdens come south with the sun
Tonight.
Step from the dark to the light, tonight

Rise high, high above our rivals
Spread our wings
Spread them wide
Let them guide
Hereby free to ever slumber
Open the door
Close our eyes
We are the dreamers

Fire.
Born of the flames of desire. This fire

Give in to the hunger
Give in to the hunger
Cast off inhibition, let passion run wild
Desire.
Fuel the unquenchable fire. Desire.

Rise high, high above your rivals
Spread your wings
Spread them wide
You needn't hide
Hereby free to ever slumber
Open the door
Close your eyes
You are the dreamer

    Wayward Daughter (Theme of Tsukuyomi, translated) 
Flower waiting to be plucked
Each petal a promise torn

Shorn one by one and cast to the winds, I gave unto them my all...all...

No...No more!

Westward lies bleed t'ward the east
Wayward daughter, step into the night
Restless eyes, blind to the beast
Barren waters yield unto the tide


Sanctuary of the moon
Tainted by the crimson light
Naught save the night shall know our sorrow, we give unto it our all...all...

No...No more!

    Sunrise (Theme of Suzaku, translated) 
Drawn to a heart and a soul, saved by a hero true
Stranger to kindness until freed by love eternal, you and I

Blazing Scarlet, fire within
Honor binds me unto errant kin
Yea, if here I find my end
Stay your tears, for we shall meet again


As the light of the setting sun fades, bid farewell to me beloved
In these fleeting moments hold my hand, as I whisper a silent prayer

In these fleeting moments hold my hand, as I whisper a silent prayer
Should I take to wing and seek you in every distant sky...
One last breath and I fracture, shatter─crimson sorrow, endless, boundless
One more life for us, one more chance─for this I pray, I beg, I plead
Dreams of you and me in my heart I hold forevermore, as I falter
Wait for me, wait for me my love...

     e Scape (Theme of Omega) 
A drifting tender,
Come ride, heroes, ride
Her galleon severed
Away with the tide

The storm heads gather
Come ride, heroes, ride
Illusions scattered
Away with the tide

Why,
Do weathered warriors wander their way, wither wanting wonders wait
Hark the heralds, anchors aweigh! Hither happens mine escape
Freedom forgone, sinking apace. Comets crumble, Phoebus fades
Under cosmic clamor decayed, hides a path untaken

Ancient echoes,
Come ride, heroes, ride
In deafening silence,
Away with the tide

A wave of hazard
Come ride, heroes, ride
A-whorling inward
Away with the tide

Time
Stellar stories starward bestrewn, slipping sidewise; see, they're snakes.
Twixt the leaves you'll find naught amiss—missing aughts and crossing fates.
Freedom surgent shifting ahead, comets dancing in her wake.
To the cosmic clarion's accord, along the path not taken.

Try, dare the dead tread ahead on a road that was borrowed design. (Design)
Through the sum of their suns do they seek tomorrow. (Tomorrow)
Tonight, witness then as the end shall begin what was final.
Their lies, folding back, further back, ever back to the primal.

Shadowbringers

    Shadowbringers / Who Brings Shadow (Main Theme / Theme of Hades) 
For whom weeps the storm,
Her tears on our skin
The days of our years gone,
Our souls soaked in sin
These memories ache with the weight of tomorrow

Who fights?
Who flies?
Who falls?


One brings shadow, one brings light
Two-toned echoes, tumbling through time
Threescore wasted, ten cast aside
Four-fold knowing, no end in sight
One brings shadow, one brings light
One dark future no one survives
On their shadows, away we fly

The road that we walk
Is lost in the flood
Here proud angels bathe in
Their wages of blood
At this, the world's end, do we cast off tomorrow

One brings shadow, one brings light
To this riddle all souls are tied
Brief our moments, brazen and bright
Forged in fury, tempered in ice
Hindmost devils, early to rise
Sing come twilight, sleep when they die
Heaven's banquet leavened with lies
Sating honor, envy, and pride
One brings shadow, one brings light
Run from the light

Authors of our fates
Orchestrate our fall from grace
Poorest players on the stage
Our defiance drives us straight to the edge
A reflection in the glass
Recollections of our past
Swift as darkness, cold as ash
Far beyond this dream of paradise lost

Home
Riding home
Dying hope
Hold onto hope
... Ohhh...
Home
Riding home
Home, riding home
Hope, finding hope... Ohhh...


One brings shadow, one brings light
One more chapter we've yet to write
Want for nothing, nothing denied
Wand'ring ended, futures aligned
One brings shadow, one brings light
One brings shadow, one brings light
You are the light

We fall
We fall
We fall
We fall unto the end

One world's end

Our world's end

Our end

We won't end

I am shadow, I am the light

    What Angel Wakes Me (Theme of Titania) 
Dancing on the wind up and down again
Round and round the bend
Fa la la la la la
From a flow'ry bed to the clouds ascend
Tumble down again
Fa la la la la la
Yet with each descent do we rise again
To our hearts' content
Fa la la la la la
Fly away my friend for a day and then
We'll begin again
Fa la la la la la

Till down turn the skies
Wonted quiet, wanton silence
For long do we lie
Wond'ring when we'll be

Dancing on the wind up and down again
Round and round the bend
Fa la la la la la
From a flow'ry bed to the clouds ascend
Tumble down again
Fa la la la la la

Yet with each descent do we rise again
To our hearts' content
Fa la la la la la
Fly away my friend for a day and then
We'll begin again
Fa la la la la la

Still down turn the skies
Gentle song gently wand'ring
Along in the night
Joyous cries ring free

La la la la la
Lying lost in thought
Do you love me not?
Follow these
Petals cast aloft
La la la la la
Will you, when I'm gone, remember me?

Ring a ling a ling
Lovers in the spring
How the garden sings
Ever green
Spirits lush, we bring
Ring a ling a ling
Braving anything
Together, we

La la la la la
Learn to play our part
Navigate the dark
Up we reach
Catch a falling star
La la la la la
Lock it in our hearts eternally

Ring a ling a ling
Flying without wings
Kites without a string
Loop and leap
To these crowns we cling
Ring a ling a ling
For we'll all be kings tomorrow

Autumn's whisper soaring high
Lulla lulla lullaby
Baby's breath and butterflies
Sing in our sweet lullaby
Summer child with heavy eyes
Lulla lulla lullaby
Come our lonely angel nigh
Sing in our sweet lullaby

Time wilts and fades
Luster lost in the rain
Bows to the blade
Till the spring calls again

    Tomorrow and Tomorrow 
For whom weeps the storm
Her tears on our skin
The days of our years gone
Our souls soaked in sin
These memories ache with the weight of tomorrow
Who fights?
Who flies?
Who falls?

Stand tall my friend
May all of the dark lost inside you find light again
In time tumbling turning we seek amends
Eternal winds to the land descend
Our journey will never end

From those who've fallen to those who rise
A prayer to keep us ever by your side
An undying promise that we just might
Carry on in a song
Pray don't forget us, your bygone kin
With one world's end does a new begin
And should our souls scatter unto the wind
Still we shall live on

Stand tall my friend
May all of the dark deep inside you find light again
This time tumbling turning we make amends
Eternal winds from the land ascend
Here to lift us that we won't end

    Return to Oblivion (Theme of Eden Shiva) 
Wanting, I lie
Too weary to die
Too lost to the ice for saving
My sins claim me, untame me

Eyes wet with tears
Her song in my ears
Broken, faded, how long have I waited
To open my wings?

Turn the light on
And let her in. Won't you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
You'll never win 'less you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
The pain won't end 'till you
Turn the light on
The soul longs for oblivion, oblivion

Falling too far for the fear to embrace me
A voice from the past screaming there is no end (no)
A slave to my fate, ever doomed to repeat this
again and again and again and again (yeah, I'm)

Falling too fast, no it won't overtake me
A voice from the past echoes loud like a drum (oh, yes)
no more goodbyes, though my heart is still aching
Now open my eyes, one more time, Here I come

Reason resigned
Dark seasons' design
Spring's promise of sun is honored
When winter's weighed down on us

Visions in white
Raw fury in flight
Clear as diamond, yet fragile as ice
My heart is racing

Turn the light on
And let her in. Won't you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
You'll never win 'less you
Turn the light on
Turn the light on
The pain won't end 'till you
Turn the light on
The soul longs for oblivion, oblivion

Falling too far for the fear to embrace me
A voice from the past screaming there is no end (no)
A slave to my fate, ever doomed to repeat this
again and again and again and again (yeah, I'm)

Falling too fast, but the fall will not break me
A voice from the past echoes loud like a drum (oh, yes)
no more goodbyes, I am tired of waiting
Now open my eyes, one last time, Here I come (yeah I come)

    To the Edge (Theme of the Warrior of Light) 
(Intro)
One brings shadow, one brings the light
Two-toned echoes, tumbling through time
Threescore wasted, ten cast aside
Fourfold knowing, no end in sight

All our splendor bathed black in silence
Our surrender, a somber reverie
Slowly drifting down into twilight
Left to sifting through faded memories
Know our places, for worth is worthless
Evanescent, this writing on the wall

Brother stay this descent to madness
Come and save us. Catch us before we fall

(Bridge)
Riding home, riding home
Finding hope, don't lose hope


Like broken angels, wingless, cast from heaven's gates (Our slumbering demons awake)
We only fly when falling, falling far from grace (Hell take us, heaven can wait)
Our lives a message in a bottle cast to sea (Disgraced, untold and unseen)
Quick to their ends, our candles burn, until we're free

(Chorus)
In monochrome melodies, our tears are painted in red (Bleeding to the edge)
Deep inside, we're nothing more than scions and sinners
In the rain, do light and darkness fade!
Yes, time circles endlessly, the hands of fate trained ahead (Pointing to the edge)
All things change, drawn to the flame, to rise from the ashes
To begin, we first must see the end!

(Intro x2)

Rock of ages, we cast the first stone
In our cages, we know not what we do
Indecision here at the crossroads

Recognition, tomorrow's come too soon
Follow blindly like lambs to slaughter
At the mercy of those who ply the sword
As our song wends dead underwater
We're forgotten for now and evermore

(Bridge)

Without a compass, wand'ring, lost in lies of faith (faith slowly wasted away)
Only alive in fighting Death's amber embrace (Our hearts beat loud, unafraid)
On hands and knees we pray to gods we've never seen (Come, shadow, come follow me)
The final hour upon us, no more time to breathe

(Chorus)

How well does it match the trope?
