6. The Memory of Light (6:17)
From the heavens above through the silent twilight, she fell.
Blinding light of a falling star or wings ablaze?

I watched her sleeping away her pain,
under the eyes of her crows.
The dark grew around her like the shadows,
as the sun went down.

I offered her salvation from this place of woe and thorns.
Washed her wings, so black from ashes, and hid away her horns.

Wipe away your black tears, welcome the darker times.
The day of tomorrow is for the chosen ones.
From the fires of yesterday until the Hell of tomorrow.
The memory of light is all we have.

The fear in her voice kept echoing in my mind,
like the cries of a lost child,
who knows she won't last through the night.

Under the stars of the open sky, she gazed into the night.
Wondered why she fell below, abandoned by the light

The ballet of shooting stars above, she watches them in tears every night.
Her wings chained down to earth, unable to leave.
I'm the guardian of her hell, the one to remind her that love will get you here.

Wipe away your black tears, welcome the darker times.
The day of tomorrow is for the chosen ones.
From the fires of yesterday until the Hell of tomorrow.
The memory of light is all we have.

I watched her sleeping away her pain,
under the eyes of her crows.
The dark grew around her like the shadows,
as the sun went down.

From the heavens above through the silent twilight, she fell.
Blinding light of a falling star or wings ablaze?
