lyrics

Shh...Listen closely
To the cavalry
come to burn me down

I'm surrounded
by their shouting
Time for me to spread my wings and
learn to fly

I descended from fallen angels
All forbidden to fly again
Demons banished to mortal soil
Soon learned how to raise the dead

Oh if only you'd comprehended
when you tried to tear me open
Now I'm forced to call the lightning down
and bring your nightmares
to life
The churchyard brims with shadows..

I'll climb the stairway of glittering points of light

You say
Demons
Never fly

It wasn't long 'fore you showed me the cold of the blade
Now I lead you down to the graves
You've met the girl now meet the
monster

Descended from fallen angels
All forbidden to fly again
Demons banished to mortal soil
Soon learned how to raise the dead

Shellshock and doom impending,
Your army never had a chance

Listen now the dead are rising
Soon the lightning fills the sky
I am not afraid of falling
on the powers I used to hide
They come marching by the hordes
and the torches light their eyes
I know they mean to burn me down
Nothing left to lose tonight

Mine is the power
Mine is the right to climb
the glittering points of light

Shellshock and doom impending
You'd better start defending
Against the horrors I've released!
Checkmate. Game over.

All the shadows
Tighten slowly
To remind you I..

I descended from fallen angels
All forbidden to fly again
Demons banished to mortal soil
Soon learned how to raise the dead

You pretended to be my champion
always wishing to steal my dreams
I remember your fingers so hard
You say the damned will never reach the stars..stars
(hark the stars cluster round the bell tower
while gloom in the dark there blooms like a flower.
Listen, it's priming to chime the night hour...)

Rise from the shadows
Rise from the night
Rise from the shadows
Rise, rise...
