lyrics

Once there was a large wall
That could not be broken
Once there was a fire
That could not be put out
But soon that wall crumbled
and the fire gave way to ice
The protection from the pain
had faded away

A man lay unprotected
Next to the rubble that remained
Exposed to a new world
The man went on exploring
But what he saw was not what he would expect
For the world was cold and harsh
A lesson to be learned
Disappointment is the only constant

Frustration grew as he could not change
what he observed that day
Fate had played a cruel trick
Showing those he could not save

The snow started to fall
White powder covered the ground
Buried the corpses
Of the nameless dead
The man wanted to scream
but a voice that had never been used
Could conjure no sound
So the man went on his way

He searched for others
Hoping it was just a dream
Wishing for ignorance
And freedom
He sought to change
A fate written in the stars
To show that we make our own way

But just as a wolf
The man howled his sorrow
At a dark sky
Staring at the moon
But never reaching for it
For if we never know
That something greater exists
We may never try to find it

After many nights of walking
the man reached his wall
broken and tired
He laid down to rest
Closed his eyes and went to sleep
A fate fulfilled
