Have you ever seen such pretty skies?
Hey you never thought you’d reach these heights
He left the spear to brace her heart
The killing moon, the blushing bride
The howling wolf, the shrieking man

Say I’m awake I’m alive

Find a way to scream beyond your mind
Take a breath and think of what you’ve done
The shadows roam this sweating room
I’ve seen the light shape-shifting fool
And now I’m back, just wait to meet this loon

Say I’m awake I’m alive
