Immigrants - The third gate

Lyrics > Immigrants - The third gate


When i wake up in the morning, I open my eyes and see
I look at those around me
And wonder what they think
I know I’ve done the best I can
Yet the best doesn’t always count
I was looking for salvation
But now i just need an out

I walk beneath the blue sky alone in my thoughts and doubts
Wandering the backstreets and the shadows
Stumbling along the way
I can’t survive the darkness
Yet i can’t turn on the light
I was blinded by an alien fire
And for now, I need the sky

Wake up from your slumber
Arise to the living dream
Give voice to the beauty
Found in the silent streams
Take heart (of) all the moments
That pass so swift alas (and fast)
Shine on my sweet Bathsheba
I found the gate at last…

I can’t escape the shadows even in the deepest sleep
Will all that I have hidden
Ever be revealed?
Will everything be understood?
In time I hope that’s true
There’s a burning vindication
I will never be your fool


Hamden, December 2009-January 2010
