We will be lifted again Let this bring light Nurture those starry eyes, old friend, for this is not your time Mend those broken wings and reset, we will make this right Ride the wind and chase the Sun and fly amidst the stars once more Hold on, I know that you can fight When the world becomes so black we must sculpt the night and remake the skies So share those starry eyes again and move towards the light And spread those scarred wings, reset, and take to new heights Ride the wind and chase the Sun and fly amidst the constellations Hold on and overcome the night All will be alright Forge through this tempest From ashes rise to again shine Reach for the sky When the world becomes so black we must sculpt the night and remake the skies

To remain asleep a thousand years To go on drawing shallow breath through an iron lung Stargazer, once you've seen the things you've seen Compromise looking down is letting go We gather all we have to burn away the dark Even in the end, even far away, I know your heart beats in time with mine in defiance of all I can feel the Sun and the dissonance washes over me I am purified I am paralyzed And here I make my peace We die this way, all our questions unanswered I've shown you rainbows in grey but through your narrowed eyes you see only victory or defeat in black and white You'll burn your hands and fall to ash trying to lift up the Sun You'll learn your place down below trying to lift up the Sun

Even words less than nothing A shade in the falling dusk Do we ever see? Time spreads so wide and all we reach is the moment as narrow as it is Now pay your toll here at the banks of the strait without a bridge for miles Can't see across, copper coin under tongue to pay your toll Passage to the ferryman, bound to the further shore A shade in the falling dusk Please let me see Time spreads so wide and all we reach is the moment as narrow as it is Build a vessel that will not leak with current so strong on legs so weak We must sail with no wings to speak into an unknown we all must face Revel, rejoice, and wade into the dark or into the dawn Can't turn back, can't stay still and drown Can't point to a throne where you rule, where you control River King, River King, can't turn back the river flow Let go of it, time spreads so wide and all we reach is the moment as narrow as it is

For many moons it was just black Alone he travelled through the fires Challenging demons of past Never forgetting Let this bring light Muses sing with me  Give me the strength to do this as should be With tales of hope to bring about good change My dear ladies, let this bring release For many moons it was just black Alone he travelled through the fires Searching for the strength Searching for the answers

Remember the dreaming nights, the start of it all Remember the colours chased in Elver Park Dreamweaver, remember the fires, the battles fought under great, great spires For when you left me, I could not see With no Sun or stars to guide me Dreamstealers, open your eyes Can't you see that this is our time? Stay with me You hold my heart, you hold my dreams Old ghosts call our names Dreamstealer, open your eyes Can't you see this is our time to reach for the Sun and take back the night You hold my heart Stay with me Hearts afire and hearts aflame Old ghosts call our names

O how I’ve tired of watching this change The hardened shell that you became What happened to those words once sang? Once a messenger, once a king Once the fire, once the flame, once shone light in darkest places Guns and lies and wasted nights Failing to judge thy self Washed all away, stolen away  By a thirst for self and fame Your lust for the Sun Your once great light, your once true heart Lost to the maze, a dragon with rubies Your once great light, your once true heart Now giving way to darkness, now giving way to weakness and vanity So disappointing to watch this change The blackened heart that you became A pale reflection of once great space A lost defender of our faith Now your fire stole away, no more light dust in trade Shine no more Now just the same as the wolves and pigs you claimed to hate Once the fire, once the flame, once shone light darkest place  Under black fell away, your once great light it now fades Morphine lies, such wasted lives Lost to the darkness Now fly away to your safest place, nothing more to fight or chase, and sing your songs once more Yes, fly away to those true days and untethered you can spread your light through the heavens Fell to this world, lost those great wings The once true message now means nothing

The stars never shined there was no light He lay in wait When darkness arrived this boy defined By words and nights now lost in time Now lost to this wake Muses sing now of false split tongues Of words that were sung with two fingers tied Let this bring redemption Let this be the key Let this bring catharsis Let this bring peace

Once in time we rode as one All in time we sang Run with me, stay right here beside me while we collect our dreams Together we’ll do everything And I put my trust in you Then came days of pain and everything flood in Dark waters rose beneath me Formless in form, keep me open, with a closing gate before me Holding on to the words of the past may become a vision betrayed Once again we ride as one All in time we sing Verses to reclaim the beloved star filled gaze And a chance to frame our own image of grace A path back to the Sun Tomorrow starts today will yesterday fade? Through the ashes can blue stars appear again? Blessed were the waters dividing the cascades, so if only for a moment, for one fleeting break, embrace, embrace

Tonight we float under blue moonlight, silver spheres, and all is right I tell myself But we must go away Must pull the cover over this and fly again far away Brother, I wish so much could have been different For so long our love was split so far apart For I let life pull me away The greatest failing of my days and not my design My love Some dreams were beyond my reach, some dreams Some hopes that I could not keep, some dreams I should have found a way My heart fell that day All in time So many lost days Sorrow for all of them To fly again far away Brother, I wish so much could have been different between you and I Did I give us everything? Did I keep my promises? Was this my greatest mistake? Sometimes this life it pushes us away At times this path is so unclear The greatest failing of my days Force your design, my love Some dreams were beyond my reach, some dreams Some hopes that I could not keep Seize your days, fly your way, reach your dreams I lost my heart, I lost my breath, I lost my head when I left you When I left you I love you
