Raise Your Wings Like Fire

from by Forthcoming Fire



As I woke up in a cold dark night
To draw my circles on the shadow side
An invisible light, my strange companion
Will show me the way through the painful night
Will show me the way to the other side
Leads me through this frightening night
I met strangers and madmen, killers and junks
Religious fanatics, rockers and punks
Became a flame of a burning youth
I found a different kind of truth

Raise your wings like fire
Like a phoenix you will rise
Speak your words of fire
Feel the anger in their eyes

I lost a best friend by suicide
By brutal murder another one died
I lost them by drugs and accidents
An evil game, I can't see its end
I lost them in jails and mental hospitals.
I lost them in the gutter of your modern hell
I kissed the lips of a frozen whore
I learned to live outside the taut
I felt hunger and cold, I worked hard to survive
So what the hell you wanna tell me about life
I felt hate and violence, lived my personal war
But peace and silence I've been looking for
I believe in the chance of a new mankind
And I'll be burning for a new clear mind
So try to overcome the night
Try to reach the other side
Let's try to overcome the dark
Try, try, try
