My Destiny

Album: True Defiance (2012)

  • I cast my heart unto the beast
    Unto my sin
    I would never find my faith in this belief unseen again
    The solitude of youth
    My conscience wearing thin
    I will suffer my infliction as a desecrated man
    But the fear, the blood, the sweat and sound
    They brought me here to wait for the will to appear

    We were blinded by the sacred light
    They carried us away
    Like a razor through the dark that night
    My destiny

    Now the weight of living word
    Come calling true
    And my heart will drink the blood of death my soul forever knew
    On the reverence of a voice
    My clarity of you
    The king of whom I never was has run my spirit through

    We will carry that flame

    The fire is in our name
    We will carry that flame Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • AnonymousGreat song. I saw the music video and the meaning of the song matches the video. A song about youth and not finding purpose until that one day you find the sound of music
