The light of hope

In the hour of darkness our worlds collide

assailed by a madness that has plagued our lives

at the point of departure on the eve despair

no recourse to reason seems to make no sense at all.


The light of hope shines in your eyes

dementia has gone, purged from inside.


Throughout our wanderings in a land of lies

we fell from gods grace into a sea of storms

in self renovation, celebration of love

these both are virtues we seem to have left behind.


The light of hope shines in your eyes.

dementia has gone purged from inside.


Lay down your heart, induce the will of love

to restore what little faith that you may have lost

as morning brings rebirth a new day will dawn to ease our troubled minds

turn away on your side and dream of days to come.


Advent, "Spleen and Ideal" (1985) - Dead Can Dance
