  • As the night arrives the day concedes her crown
    In the dying light the shadows grow
    When the world is dark and still without a sound
    That which was hidden is shown

    Tears of sorrow flood the land
    All that has been shall be again
    The dead will rise and the living must depart
    What if all you've seen are lies
    When the veil is from your eyes
    And you face the infinite with fear in your heart?

    The wind blows cold as the days begin to wane
    The lord of the dead assumes his throne
    When men have gone and only ghosts remain
    That which was secret is known

    Tears of sorrow flood the land
    All that has been shall be again
    And the moon shines over the sea as the mother of man
    Somewhere seven ships collide
    Seven sailors lose their lives
    But their voyage continues on the other side

    Asherah, saw below
    Queen of heaven, she who knows Writer/s: DUFF MC KAGAN, DUFF MICHAEL MCKAGAN, ISAAC HEATH CARPENTER, JEFFREY JOHN ROUSE, MICHAEL JAMES SQUIRES
