Darkness Within

Album: Unto The Locust (2011)
  • Here in the darkness that I lay
    Depression heavy in its weigh
    And how my body aches to leave
    To sing its final eulogy
    My sons I love you evermore
    And though the road beckons once more
    I see the damage that I've done
    In search for redemption
    But I am just a broken man
    Whose souls cries out to understand
    How the madness shatters me
    Upon the stage on bended knee
    I scream out loud at skies above
    That answer mute bereft in love
    I struggle not to fall from grace
    Or sing the hymns of my disgrace

    We build cathredrals to our pain
    Establish monuments to attain
    Freedom from all of the scars and the sins
    Lest we drown in the darkness within

    Mysterys forgotten chords
    I strum in vain to please the lord
    But he has never answered me
    My faith has waned eternally
    In empty men who pass along
    The woes of all religions wrong
    But now the shadowed veil it falls
    Heed the clarion call
    So pray to music build a shrine
    Listen in these desperate times
    Fill your heart with every note
    Cherish it and cast afloat
    Because god is in these clef and tone
    Salvation is found alone
    Haunted by its melody
    Music it will set you free
    Let it set you free

    We build cathredrals to our pain
    Establish monuments to attain
    Freedom from all of the scars and the sins
    Lest we drown in the darkness within

    Music my saviour (save me)

    We build cathredrals to our pain
    Establish monuments to attain
    Freedom from all of the scars and the sins
    Lest we drown in the darkness within Writer/s: DAVID WAYNE MCCLAIN, PHILIP JOHN DEMMEL, ROBERT CONRAD FLYNN
