lyrics

On the edge of night, a single star shining on its own
A lonely ray of light beating back the darkness of his soul
He stands with watchful eyes, a thin disguise
For what he's always known
The sacrificial rite, the selfless lie
Alone behind these

Walls of shining light
He'll make the sacrifice
The hero come to fight

A life of dark and gray
The edge just kept at bay
The sacrifices made
That peace may reign
But everything you see
Is what he tries to be
To cast aside the evil way

Living out another day just trapped in this haze
Self-deceit running out, but what will it take?
Every thought betray a need, push memory away
Going on one more day without blowing away
What's a dream and what is real? I can't take any more
In the dark lie awake and fear what's in store
Serving all to serve the good, a hero adored
Hidden deep a burning light
The cracks appear, the laughter through the door

He holds with all his might the life outside
Pushing back the truth
To save his soul from fire, to feed them lies
Pretending he's their

Walls of shining light
He'll make the sacrifice
The hero come to fight

A life of dark and gray
The edge just kept at bay
The sacrifices made
That peace may reign
But everything you see
Is what he tries to be
To cast aside the evil way
