I know that daylight’s coming
Because it’s so dark outside
The world hangs like a still-frame
Where the nights reside
Across the sky, drenched in black
The stars are sparkling stones
They blink like waking eyes
As the morning breaks like bones.
This is just another sunrise
That shines upon the face
Of an empty world where all life dies
Vanishing without a trace
And all the starlight that we hail
And all the mornings that we chase
Hammer home the final nail
On another sunrise in disgrace.
In my chamber, the waking hours
That stir my steely blood
Shake me like the wind-blown flowers
That wither in the mud
And as it rains before the dawn
I whisper soft and close my eyes
My devil’s hour has come and gone
To fade out in another sunrise.
Another sunrise breaks the day
One more morning shrouds the night
The day star that is standing strong
Embraces darkness, brings the light
Waking from my scattered dreams
I stand and look up to the skies
The horizon breaks a golden hue
To bring us another sunrise.
