This is the day and this is the night
the dawn of storms and rebels
I’m alive, this fear won’t last for long
Walking away, I’ll run through the lost roads
the year of knives and torches
when the Sun burns down

See it rise in the East
It’s coming for me
The light in your eyes

Calling me back home
that place of green
the richest sea
the faces known
in disguise
they know my name
and keep rolling their eyes at me
losing the young ones to pride

Wishing you’d stay I’d wake up at night
and think my way till morning
this town won’t come down
Pray for my foes and bring them to ashes
oh child they will not help you
I can’t fight your war

Find your way in the street
they’re waiting for me
no light in your eyes


There’s no way out
lost in the sea
the faces known
in disguise
even now
they keep rolling their eyes at me
fearful they look at the Sun
