Longing for Light

by Forthcoming Fire

Open your eyes, wide open your mind Blazing perception, how easy to find Glowing new hope, unbelievable Towers fall, unforgettable A new awakening, a new kind of freedom This is the burning of mental fire Behold the glowing of a new mankind This is the end of the night This is my longing for light Witness the rising of a blazing phoenix The ashes of the old days is dead and gone Do I hear time sound of a new crescendo? I welcome time morning and a glowing new sun Now, you may see, behold, what ever will be Mother, what have you done? You cry ’til our kingdom will come Lord, renew the face of our mother nature Don't waste the chance to light your fire Don't cover your light in front of me A new born hope is rising higher Til the end of the night We're gonna be free
Don't you see that tower growing Up into the sky? A tower of immoderation Is growing much too high All that greed for more and higher A burst of a natural flame A tower based on sick foundations, Same old evil game A tumbling tower A high growing flower A youth on fire This is the sickness of high-civilization Economy towers and business temples Out of the towers, out of the town Let’s you take part in its fraud For her sins are heaped high as heaven And don't you see that flower growing Within a peaceful law Those beauty such a modesty Can teach us how to grow And what’s about our wretched being, About our ruthless life? For every artificial dirt We sell our mothers life I pray the lord my soul to keep While babylon will fall I pray the lord my soul to keep Ah can't ya hear me call? Feel the burning of a new generation The heat of a fiery youth A cleaning fire down from heaven Shall free the hidden truth Heaven knows were holding on Cause it seems were blessed We are meant to stay alive And I swear to do my best
Standing on the shores of a cold wild sea And I wonder why While a threatening wind had me in it’s spell Makes me wanna cry Staring through the distance at a cold wild sea Nothing left to say And a flock of seagulls is calling me Clouds passing by And the rain tears down onto the ground And i feel so blue And the storm opens a violent sound And I miss you I walk through the water And a threatening wind starts to talk to me I take off my shoes And I close my eyes so I can see I got nothing to lose And I close my mind so I can see I can watch behind I can travel beyond the eternity While my eyes are blind The storm bangs onto a secret door So I enter the gate Draws me a picture of conquest and war And I wish I would fade Wooden longships passing by Masts so tall Out of the dark they are rising high I hear someone call And the cold wind sings a forgotten song Through the mightful rain From an alien race and ships so strong And a world in pain Your winds are telling of what will be Tales of threatening, misery North wind blows across the country Let your spirits grow Whip your waves against the Towers Let the waters flow
As I woke up in a cold dark night To draw my circles on the shadow side An invisible light, my strange companion Will show me the way through the painful night Will show me the way to the other side Leads me through this frightening night I met strangers and madmen, killers and junks Religious fanatics, rockers and punks Became a flame of a burning youth I found a different kind of truth Raise your wings like fire Like a phoenix you will rise Speak your words of fire Feel the anger in their eyes I lost a best friend by suicide By brutal murder another one died I lost them by drugs and accidents An evil game, I can't see its end I lost them in jails and mental hospitals. I lost them in the gutter of your modern hell I kissed the lips of a frozen whore I learned to live outside the taut I felt hunger and cold, I worked hard to survive So what the hell you wanna tell me about life I felt hate and violence, lived my personal war But peace and silence I've been looking for I believe in the chance of a new mankind And I'll be burning for a new clear mind So try to overcome the night Try to reach the other side Let's try to overcome the dark Try, try, try
