lyrics

Full of fear
Shaken deep
Lost alone amid these streets
Paralyzed
Yet I see
The barricade looming over me

Is this my new
Reality?
Is waking life just fantasy
What brought me here?
Dare I go on
To seek the answers that lie beyond?

Into the black it towers
Eclipsing the moon and stars
Casting a pall upon my heart

No light of hope inside me
I have no faith to guide me
There is no path amid its thorns

Here at the barricades
Do I surrender all I’ve loved?
Here at the barricades
Do I submit before I’ve begun?


Do I dare to scale its walls?
Do I dare to risk it all?
For I should die if I should fall

Yet if I cower here in dread
I have chosen living death
To live in fear is not to live at all

In days long past
I journeyed with no fear
Til one day I strayed from the path
And found I was lost

That time had turned
And now all was darkness
A sudden shift in light
With nary a star as my guide

Oh oh oh oh
I will fight the demons in my soul
Oh oh oh oh
I must beat them back
The spectres of my past
The weight holding me back
The devils in my past
The devils’ hold
The devils’ hold
The devils’ hold


Shedding
Falling away from me
Expose the layers underneath the scars
Exposing the fire underneath
A cleansing fire engulfs my weary heart

Come to me
I need you as I never have before
Come to me
Be with me as seek what lies beyond

Shaking
The winds lashing at me
The higher that I pull myself above
Resolving
With everything in me
To reach the heavens and to touch the sun

Stay with me
I need you as I never have before
Stay with me
Give me strength when I feel that mine has gone

We are, Believe,
So much more than we all see
We are destiny

We are, Believe,
So much more than we all see
We are destiny

I will rise
I will cross into light
I will rise
I will cross into light
I will rise
I will cross into light

Nothing stands before me
But the future
I’m beyond
Nothing stands against me
I have risen
I’m beyond
No doors locked before me
I am holding every key
Nothing stands before me
But the future
