I. I'm afraid, father

I can't understand what you're trying to say.

It breaks my heart to watch you wither away.

Every remedy, every prayer has been in vain.

I cannot do a thing to take away your pain.

Such a lively soul, now reduced to skin and bones.

You'll be gone soon, leaving me all alone.

I know not what awaits you at the end of it all.

I helplessly dread the day the last leaf will fall.


I'm afraid, father, I'm so afraid.

A part of me will die when you're dead.


How will I ever go on

Without you to lean on for support?

How will I make you proud

If you can't witness what my future holds?


My heart is aching to hear your voice one more time.

But I know the hour has arrived, I must say goodbye.


I'm afraid, father, I'm so afraid.

A part of me will die when you're dead.

But I'll listen to your voice in my head.


II. Be your own beacon of light

Growl:

Flame, your body's a flame.

Claim, your true power, claim.

Death, looms over you, death.

Breath, focus on life and breath.


Sung:

The night just keeps growing darker.

This is precisely when you can shine.

Unleash your light and drive away

Shadows so gloomy and serpentine.


Growl:

Flame, your body's a flame.

Claim, your true power, claim.

Death, looms over you, death.

Breath, focus on life and breath.


Sung:

Be true to your name and become

The beacon of hope in darkest nights.

Fear, pain, sorrow, anguish, regrets,

All will be defeated by your light.


III. Grief

Grief, if you let it in, it'll take you in too.

Grief, oh how it slowly consumes you.

Grief, a never ending sea where you can't stay afloat.

Grief, makes you disregard the water rising up to your throat.


People will tell you it's important to grieve,

It's important to acknowledge it when someone leaves.

But they don't know how grief will take you down.

They can't tell how grief will only make you drown.


I refuse to sit here and grieve.

I refuse to let this cruel Universe win.

I refuse to let the dark powers break me.

In God I no longer believe.

This sorrow's made by him, I won't let it in.

I refuse to let even mighty death shake me.


IV. There are no strings on me

There are no strings on me.

Do you feel powerless yet, deity?

You take all I have,

I build myself a new world every time.

There are no strings on me.

Do you feel powerless yet, deity?

You come back for more,

But you can't wipe away my smile.


There is no horror in this world that can break me down anymore.

You're the one to thank for hardening me to the core,

With the betrayals you sent my way since such a tender age.

Must have been entertaining to see me cry and rage.

Well, those days are over, now you've got a warrior unleashed.

There are no strings on me, a fact that I relish.


V. Mother

Let the darkness dispel away,

Mother, here comes a new day.

Take my hand, you'll never be alone,

Not when there's life in my flesh and bones.


I will be the light,

I will be the flame.

I will win this fight,

Stay true to my name.


Flame, my body's a flame.

Claimed, my true power, claimed.

Death, looms over me, death.

Breath, I focus on life and breath.
