Oh Ancient Sun,
I am lost among shadows of dying stars.
The earth gives way as the leaves find rest within the ground.

A vision twisted by the eyes of a thousand.
The light seems to shift within my mind.
Illuminating that which I never saw before.
Beacons of the past, divine to those who blindly trust in you.
(I'll bow to no one who sees without open eyes)

We are all lost here.
We are the messengers.

Oh Ancient Sun,
We are all lost here, shadows of former selves.
The ground beneath our feet has never been so unsteady.
We were not meant for this disillusion.
Our minds will one day break free and rest within this peace.

A vision broken by the hands of another.
The light starts to shift before our eyes.
Illuminating that which we always knew was there.
Beacons of your past, blinding you to the truth at hand.
(No solace in the light that you've taken from me)

We are all lost here.
We are the light in the dark.

Oh foolish ones,
Can't you see that you're all trapped by your beliefs?
Oh forsaken truths,
We will never be forgiven.
