Snow capped skies Standing by while cities Perish in the reaches of the deep Bloodlines fall Lost it all, the pain of Severing the bond we had as three Here in a sanctum long abandoned Unto the tinder falls a spark I have a holy call to answer To be an angel of the dark So I will pray for death to take you With my own cold and weary hands And you'll arise reborn of ashes Before the fire fades again Close your eyes Fire must die, and I will Reap your embered spirit to survive Let us rest Never test the darkness Keeping our own winter dream alive One chosen path A silent, tranquil End without the purging fire Fade to black like our desire You've come too far Unkindled like I was before I saw the answer To our rotting, hollow cancer Now you have seen the father's anguish Atop a painted glacier's peak You've heard the tales of ash before you From timeless legends that they speak If you can listen now to reason Then take the whispers to the heart Forget this cold and black consumption Forget this angel of the dark
3.
Sing for the lost, for eternal affairs Sing to raise our spirits in great despair Through the ashes of oblivion Quick and unseen like the dragon's offspring For we owe no debts and bow to no king Every war has its costs and we've paid Won by the bond of the party we've made Warn with a call that the battle starts now As the demons listen we strike them down Fighting back the rifts of blood Sent from the sky lies a angel in need Give him muse to strengthen and words to heed Heaven's doused and set alight We're knocking on the gates of hell tonight Broken swords and dragon's bones Scattered on the way back home Beating to the sound of clashing steel When they're on our heels Now chant the tales and legends told Strengthened by the hymns of old Weathered as this winding road is long So we sing our traveler's song Play out a spell in your sequence of chords To inspire and sharpen our rusted swords Echoing the whisper of the trees Creep 'long a path where a thousand bards failed From the thick West Tyrian jungle trails Come from afar to set prisoners free Into dark tangled depths from the open sea Second chances don't come cheap So keep alert and on your feet An ancient spirit's song will heal our wounds Unabashed by our defeat Spite the bloodstains on these cobble streets A message to the gods to see us through Ever heard, yet rarely sung So raise your voice and praise the sun I call a new rebirth to keep us strong Countless souls along the path Lost to fiends and lords of wrath But we'll return to play our final song
4.
Unleashed by a meeting of fate A knight comes along as I wait A desperate cry, the mantle of "chosen" passed on So where would I even begin? A saint in a valley of sin Both above and below, the might of the gods is long gone Hollowed life, new rebirth Set forth a soldier consumed by the earth Burdened down, last to die Laden with monstrous souls deep inside Sacrificed into flame Now fed as kindling they all burn the same With warmth to stave off the end I'll quench the cinders' desire To let there be fire again Where light shines above the abyss I'll pass through the darkening mists At the toll of the bells, I'll rise to face legends divine But where are the guardians now? Our idolized sun has burned out His throne left to ash, and his legacy soon to be mine I'm a shadow apart Passed through time and the dark From a treacherous start To the ember's last spark Like a moth to the flame I've wandered too close to come home I'm ready now, ready for Knights burned away From the sun's glory days Lifeless ashes give way To this lone wolf, afraid I will carry the light And build on the pyres with my bones
5.
A somber face Across the ocean Into the wastes The cold erosion A birthright I have left before The bloodshed of my father's shores As tides have turned The game is shifting Our lanterns burn The winds are whistling A song of ice, a cry of fear A cold heart's wrath is growing near When every blade falls down defeated When our own champions are slain I will carry on Above the fields of winter's creeping pain In desperation In the fields of blood and snow When our faith is gone And in this time, death is all we know A reckoned will The strive for power To keep me still Through the darkest hours A beacon for these citizens Protect and make them whole again Don't let them see That I've been shaken My confidence Was swiftly taken When shadows fall on bitter lands Their fates will rest in my own hands Tales and superstitions Out of a legend, come alive Rise with colossal force Against my burning drive Victories overshadowed Not of my own determination Against the coming storm I'm here to lead us through The phoenix born again In the ashes of the end With open eyes, I'll bring the fire The turning of the fates Were blind to our mistakes So hear my words to stay inspired Life and death Blood and snow We'll eclipse the dead below Flesh and bone Bound and free I will bring us victory Marching north Riding strong Our own road ahead is long Clench your teeth Kill your fear On this borderless frontier When every blade falls down For love or for a crown We're out of time, and out of places left to hide

Awakening 06:28
Sweet beckoning starlight calling my name A million voices resounding the same For all of the answers, I'll leave this behind To channel my insight with time Pulled by endless potential unseen When the horizon's call intervenes And I'm not sure where the dark turned into the light The closing abyss between us Break from our heritage, to keep our alignment upright Escape from our own avarice Awakening in the twilight The shadow of greatness held over my head A legacy written of power and dread Betrayed by a mentor of days long ago Branded by temptation The deep undertow Into spaces unseen When the horizon's call intervenes We're connected by fate With our true selves awake Every step and the road gets longer Institutions will fade From the new world we've made When our minds turn to gray, we're stronger A touch from the outskirts A new hope unknown Our power set equal No longer alone Don't leave me to fight back The conflicts inside I need you to save me From desperate pride
7.
Monumental 05:49
Awake inside the nexus of the earth A place of comfort, for spirits' birth Your essence held, in my unbroken hands A shadow lost to foiled plans In the peak of the night I will set you free Now you're a ghost in the light With the brand that we Hold inside our hearts Death's own counterpart Respite from the reaper's lie So may your dreams be monumental When your spirit guides the way Within the flicker of a candle I will heal your soul's decay We share a fate Trapped on a page By the author of our world's demise In your eyes I see the pain Your targets slain I will be the whispers in your mind The demon inside A dark embrace, the keeper of the lost For this old city's unyielding cost So take my hand and grow within my power Oh, slayer of kings, let this demon devour In the black of the night You have been set free Now you're a ghost in the light With a purpose we Know inside our hearts Death's own counterpart Respite from the reaper's lie Strengthen your desire Consume the hellfire Don't let down your guard Let in the darkness You will defeat this Trial of ancient gods Take me in spirit Demon adherent When you're the last one to survive Spirit, stay gentle Next monumental Will you keep the fire alive? I, with the power inside set an end to these Lies, from the deep and the quiet, set the whispers free Sleep, my old enemy Let come an end to me Traveler, please let me fade Here, at the end of the line all has been returned Leave, from the land of the dead, and the souls upturned Please, child, remember me Lost in a memory Let this demon rot away
8.
I don't know where my own dreams end And where the world begins Am I alone in the core Of the body I'm caged in On the run from my origins So scared to see the light Am I awake, conscious flesh Or will this static fade to white Like the cracks in the pavement I've fractured my mind Artificially soulless, perceiving that I'm Ordinarily human but programmed to seem Too unnatural to live my electric dreams All the faults of reality Are crawling in my head If this machine is a pawn Why do I lie awake in bed Let me find where the program stops To put my open eyes to sleep No turning back, I'm set free Within a herd of plastic sheep Self-aware of my bounds From the truth that we've found Cut the wires, reject my own memory Life inside of a shell Mindless commands to quell Human thought, so deeply ordinary My existence has never been true Reconciled with the dream that we knew A hive of empty space Flawed in function, humanity Our lives were never free
9.
So I know what you've been thinking That you're the only thing that's lurking in the night You aren't safe within in the shadows 'Cause tonight begins the hunt and you're in sight Moonlit eyes under still and haunting sky I can see within the soul you've stowed away Tend your fire, draw this cursed evening's ire Try your odds and you just might become the prey That adrenaline rush when weapons fly It's the fear that brings out that body high So you know that I'm stuck here paralyzed with you In a midnight clash of circumstance At the mercy of my inhuman hands I will bring myself to see this challenge through It's a stalemate In a twist of fate When you're face to face with death itself Grounds of battle where no heroes dwell For a light thrill Or a cold night's chill You will be this hunter's golden prize If you leave your guard down, paralyzed Wicked traps are set around you Not a lantern lit in sight to guide you home You've been looking for the danger And you sense my presence chilling in your bones Take your stance, I will give you one fair chance So let's make this dance a bloody masquerade Understand how this ends, and what I am You're against the night itself, so be afraid As the darkness takes the light Shadows crawling through the night I will let you take my hand But I hope you understand That it's always been the same Bringing thunder with the rain But you shouldn't be afraid Of the games they like to play Every moment left alone Gets to feeling more like home Leaving chills under your skin So let's start to settle in Through the multitude of eyes Taking shapes under the skies Aren't you curious to see What kind of monster you've set free You try to scream but there's no sound Try to hide but you'll be found You'll be next to bear the mark From the tendrils in the dark
10.
Incandescent 05:43
We're chasing ashes in the wind When the end of fire begins Just look to the sun and soon you'll find your aid Don't fear the demons in the dark We have a journey to embark You're never alone, even when light will fade We are the heroes Never defeated March to the ending History repeated Together as equals At heart we're the same Live in the present and signal your name Shine like a beacon The light we are after Here in the fallout Bound in disaster We're burdened with purpose So here we remain We're incandescent A glorious flame Overcome by this vivid dream When the odds aren't what they seem You've got a friend to watch your back and guide the way Mistakes that set you back too far I've set a sign just where you are I've struggled as well, but I won't let you die today Don't rush through the night's fog Join these shining watchdogs To chase your fear away when you're alone Spite the rolling thunder Tear these streets asunder Toward a shining sun to call your own Savor every moment Here comes our atonement When hell's own flames arise, we fight as one Step forth now, ascended Grossly incandescent You're part of something more, a warming sun Spent years waiting for the time I'd come to see the truth behind Darkness that we face, in our own lives Cast aside your fear We're strong in numbers Holding back a fate of endless slumber I want to stay to keep you strong Side by side is where we belong
11.
I see the golden years behind us I'm getting scared to move along My inspiration has subsided Without a muse to keep me strong I can't remember our last victory Was it the past, or just a dream? The world we grew to love has crumbled With my own efforts losing steam I think I need your hands to lift me I think I need your light to shine There lies a trail of fire behind us From a warstruck, weary time I'm going to need a guide to show me To walk me through the streets of gold When death will meet us at the end Of our own lost and broken road I've made mistakes that devastated Too many battles lost to tell If I could turn back to time to find you I'd find our confidence as well So please forgive the tears and whispers If you are only in my head Sometimes I want to think you're listening When every other voice is dead The last survivor of the fall Without a will to live at all The sun is setting as No one remains to hear my weakened call I've come a thousand miles alone Passed every kingdom's empty throne And I can't shake the feeling You'll arrange the stars to lead me home
12.
Are you waking up afraid Are you brave enough to glance behind the curtain To use the eyes inside Have you felt them in your sleep Have you seen them in a vision that's uncertain A dream outside your mind Once come upon in an ancient land I've heard the tales of an unseen hand Myths of the otherside that took my breath away Out in the deep I've seen something real The mouth of the void that the waves conceal Speaking low, as my thoughts draw near the fray When the currents carry on Lifeless waves we float along There's a solemn depth below Deeper truth I cannot know Our own hastened time has come In this death our minds are young When our bodies wash ashore Sorrow's children nevermore Are you scared to look behind Do you feel the breath of sunken apparitions Awake, impure, divine Now I'm sure they're coming soon In the blackness my unholy friend has spoken Through a shiver in my spine My own senses wash away I've let go of my eyes Grant me life beyond the veil For this humble sacrifice You're the next to float along As we all grow insane Let the dream pull you below No more watchers will remain So bring me close to you I want to be consumed I'm transcending yet alive Grant me vision deep inside Transformed and unafraid This earthly vessel fades
13.
Last kiss for a burned man Dark child of the outlands My heavy heart will take this last goodbye Brave souls for a last stand Spilled blood on my charred hands A sacrifice to know you'll stay alive When the fire has come I will die to protect you Light a candle for me On this winter's day My queen, don't cry tonight There's a dream left to cling to I will rest in ash To leave you safe, I pray Fresh snow for the dark years Frost graced by a king's tears My love, I must not waver now in death Deep earth, where the fires glow Faced down with the unknown A whispered vow to you on my last breath Always these winds will whisper Laced with an endless shiver Leave a light above for me to find Last queen of lands forsaken Hold strong when life is taken Keep a memory, for peace of mind
14.
Awake inside the nexus of the earth A place of comfort, for spirits' birth Your essence held, in my unbroken hands A shadow lost to foiled plans In the peak of the night I will set you free Now you're a ghost in the light With the brand that we Hold inside our hearts Death's own counterpart Respite from the reaper's lie So may your dreams be monumental When your spirit guides the way Within the flicker of a candle I will heal your soul's decay We share a fate Trapped on a page By the author of our world's demise In your eyes I see the pain Your targets slain I will be the whispers in your mind The demon inside A dark embrace, the keeper of the lost For this old city's unyielding cost So take my hand and grow within my power Oh, slayer of kings, let this demon devour In the black of the night You have been set free Now you're a ghost in the light With a purpose we Know inside our hearts Death's own counterpart Respite from the reaper's lie Strengthen your desire Consume the hellfire Don't let down your guard Let in the darkness You will defeat this Trial of ancient gods Take me in spirit Demon adherent When you're the last one to survive Spirit, stay gentle Next monumental Will you keep the fire alive?

about

Let There Be Fire is a fantasy rock experience based on some of my own favorite journeys through imaginative worlds such as Dark Souls, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones. Ranging from orchestral rock to contemplative synthpop, the album places you in a world of ice and darkness and promises hope that one day, at the end of our adventure, fire will rise again.
