lyrics

Pray to breathe
Behold what’s left to see
Once a golden titan
Now lost in reverie

They call me the prince of the rapture
With a heart of ice and stone
If only they could fathom
What lay behind my throne

I’ve captured minds in wonder
With a tongue of silvered wit
Yet now I grow so weary
Fraught in doubt and counterfeit

Time slips away
When you’re a slave to its charm
It holds you when it needs to
Yet lays waste when in charge

Take me away
Take me far from here

And yet I long for Death’s embrace
Her comfort
Her grace
No longer shall I bear the pain
Release me from my eternal reign

Reflecting on my past
I count where I went wrong
To trust in where I was before
To fit where I belong

Too far beyond redemption
In chains of faith and glass
I lost all that I had loved

And yet I long for Death’s embrace
Her comfort
Her grace
No longer shall I bear the pain
Release me from my eternal reign

Release me
Release me
Release me
Now left to find my way
Left to find my way
Release me from my eternal reign

Cold and calloused
It leads me to rage on, cursed and estranged
Bread into silence
Tied to enslave all cast through these flames

Over and over
Chained to behave
Tailored to nothing

Forced to revisit the pain of my past
It rages on
Forced to recover
A slave to this other
It rages on

How long I’ve lived in protest
Like a moth unto the flame
How long I’ve served in protest
A blight unto his name

Course and careless
Exiled to rule over all that is vile
Seething for being a titan of gold
With pride to his name

Forced to revisit the pain of my past
It rages on
Forced to recover
A slave to this other
It rages on

For all the tears I shed
My call to paradise
Fell on deafened ears
Denied a second chance
Refused one final glance
Of where I hung my wings

Sentenced to live on
In a shrine of molten stone
Destined for defeat
I fell from warring skies
Into the dark of night
Never seen again

[Solo #1 – Lord Tim]

Cast from up above
Terrified and bare
Bound to eternity
With no end in sight
Scathed beyond repair
Can you set me free?

They call me the prince of the rapture
With a heart of ice and stone
If only they could fathom
What lay behind my throne

I’ve captured minds in wonder
With a tongue of silvered wit
Yet now I grow so weary
Fraught in doubt and counterfeit

[Solo #2 – Mishka Bobrov]

[Solo #3 – Mark Furtner]

[Solo #4 – Mishka Bobrov]

[Solo #5 – Mark Furtner]

And yet I long for Death’s embrace
Her comfort
Her grace
No longer shall I bear the pain
Release me from my eternal reign

Release me
Release me
Release me
Now left to find my way
Left to find my way
Release me from my eternal reign

For all the tears I shed
My call to paradise
Fell on deafened ears
I fell from warring skies
Into the dark of night
Never seen again
