Lyrics:

Blindly,

Across the sea,

Your love

Lit my way through storm and shade

For a thousand years.

 

Today, and every day,

Let me be your light,

Let me be your light

Always.

 

Another battle, another day

To face the light and pull away from the embrace

Of the shadows where I survive

The agony reminds me I’m alive.

 

Oh mother, I wonder if you knew.

Oh father, if only I could speak with you.

Did you love my smoke and mirrors?

That should be enough, that would be enough

 

(Roy Khan:)

I know you found it, that dream you chased.

Don’t ever think that what you love is a mistake.

Despite the demons that rule you mind,

Stay the course, everything will be alright.

 

Your mother, she watches over you.

My daughter, just know that we are proud of you.

From the beyond, you’ll never hear us,

But you have our love, you have our love.

 

(Adrienne:)

Can’t afford to die, and can’t afford to lose.

(Roy and Adrienne:)

Sweet angel, wish I had been enough for you.

All I am is smoke and mirrors.

(Adrienne:)

Would you love me if you knew?

Could you love me if you knew?

 

Pt. 2: Mania and Nothing

 

What happened to me?

I never saw these bones.

I wear this skin like someone else’s clothes.

These scraps of childhood scenes are roughly sewn.

There’s no tomorrow,

Just a day that started lifetimes ago.

 

Back and forth,

Mania and nothing.

Nothing at all.

 

What happened to me?

Who am I?

Everything I’ve been feels like it’s a lie.

Food makes me sick and drink makes me fade.

Are these my memories?

Am I even awake?

 

Back and forth,

Mania and nothing.

Nothing at all.

 

Pt. 3: The Majesty

 

(Earth, give me strength

Skies, lend your range

Moon, lend your light

Stars, guide my way)

 

Bow before the majesty,

This loathsome demon reborn.

Life with new purpose.

See the earth through young eyes.

Feel the universe through an ancient soul.

 

Pt. 4: Beneath the Morning Star

 

I have known all and nothing.

I have stared into the void until it haunted my dreams.

Screamed and smiled beneath the morning star,

And conducted the chorus of grim constellations.

 

Their lights lied, I died a thousand times.

Floating frozen past their majesties,

I wandered too far into the black.

 

Non est otium

Tibi putesce mari aeterno

Abhorremus te

 

Endless nights awake in vain

My imploding brain

Torturing my psyche, there was no escaping myself

My hatred, my failures, my losses, my loathing

There was no hollow peace

 

This has been my final death, finally accept

All that I am, and all that I’m meant to be

Perhaps eternally

 

Non est otium

Tibi putesce mari aeterno

Abhorremus te

 

Pt. 1 Smoke and Mirrors (Reprise):

 

(Roy and Adrienne):

Blindly, across the sea

 

(Adrienne:)

Your love…

 

(Roy:)

Lit your way through storm and shade

For a thousand years.

 

(Adrienne:)

Today, and every day

 

(Roy and Adrienne:)

I will be your light,

Let me be your light,

Always

 

Pt. 5: This God is Dead

 

Guide of the lost,

Guardian of the broken,

Bringer of peace in final hours.

Happiness is a choice,

And purpose, a charted course.

I am but a soul-keeper,

And this god is dead.
