LYRICAL POETRY: ANOTHER SUNRISE (from TIMES FADE)

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 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 another sunrise.
