Verse 1

I flip through the ragged and weeping pages,

A prisoner to dust for so many ages.

I see words in a language I do not speak.

It must have been lost in time, as are the weak.

Pre chorus 1

As I cradle the ancient treasure in my hands,

I recite a few words that I don't understand.

Chorus

And the wind growls,

And lightning smiles at the night.

And the sea roars,

And stars are no longer bright.

What have I done now?

What ancient wrath did I unleash?

What have I done now?

Can somebody help me out please?

What have I done now?

What have I done now?

Verse 2

Morning arrives, with the sparkle in his eyes,

The acid rain ends the drought, the flowers die.

I rejoice, blind to the obvious and naïve.

All the pages seem to laugh, "we've come alive."

Pre chorus 2

As I kiss the beast that was trapped in manuscripts,

I feel my broken soul and I begin to drift.

Chorus

And the wind growls,

And lightning smiles at the night.

And the sea roars,

And stars are no longer bright.

What have I done now?

What ancient wrath did I unleash?

What have I done now?

Can somebody help me out please?

What have I done now?

What have I done now?

Bridge

There must be a way to put this to an end.

Oh angels watching over me, please descend

To the earth that's about to shatter under his feet.

And the pages now reek of a sinister heartbeat.

Chorus

And the wind growls,

And lightning smiles at the night.

And the sea roars,

And stars are no longer bright.

What have I done now?

What ancient wrath did I unleash?

What have I done now?

Can somebody help me out please?

What have I done now?

What have I done now?
