lyrics

I knew I’d end up here
this test of strength my dear
show my resolve and what one can endure
now neither pain nor thirst
prevents what I’ve rehearsed
the stalking darkness tries to sway the pure

a group was sent out in the night
to return by morning light
left the fires burning bright
in darkness they will find you
beleaguered gang we heard their cries
fear now met their widened eyes
a voice that carried through the skies
was whispering “I’ll find you”

I never had a chance
to go back and try something else
the shadows seem to have hands
a siren song in the desert sand
oh how the light cradled your outline
there are nights when it’s all I see
a life slips through your hands
you will starve just to know you’re free

and when those few returned
unsure what they had learned
a blank expression on a face gone pale
they saw the blood red moon
jaws clenched and open wounds
those who survived refused to share the tale

how did I end up here?
holed up and filled with fear
there’s only so much that one can endure
consumed by this betrayal
can’t place blame if I fail
those darkened thoughts they try to sway the pure

now I set out into the night
I won't return by morning light
the torch I held was burning bright
in darkness they will find you
beleaguered soul let out a cry
fear now met my widened eyes
a voice that carried through the skies
was whispering “I’ll find you”
