lyrics

I have found a room
deep inside the earth
Where they keep the lost ones,
the dead ones
Overflow of the graveyards,
brave soldiers, holy saints
Victims of Plagues,
both rich and poor

I have passed the arches,
the pillars of skulls
Beauty in decay, art from death
Hidden from the sun,
built from remains
Brothers and Sisters,
Mothers and Fathers

I have seen the walking dead
Lost like children
in the heart of a graveyard
I have seen the broken souls
comforted only by their loss
I have heard
their useless cries in the night

I have seen the monstrance
and the cup full of blood
Eternal life through eternal death
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Exonerated and anonymous

Purify me that I might see
All that is offered
and what is to be
Grant me wisdom
and give me sight
That I might know your paths
into the light.
