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.
