I was awoken
Truth hit me like a great weight
The old world was gone
Legions of ghostly soldiers
Gathered to deliver truth

These days of darkness
A single light leads the way
A new dawn breaking

When this is over
and we can all breathe again
we’ll live for the day
For new days of innocence
Beaming smiles of simple joy
