lyrics

The mouth of hell opened wide
Let out a cry of war
Those who wished to live in peace
Sought sheltered from the storm
Buried themselves in the dirt
Same from which they're born
City streets carved in earth
While the sunlight was lost

Father once told me
About something called the sky
And a light that shined so bright
You had to shield your eyes

Children born under the veil
Their history was lost
This dirty cage is Eden
Never heard of holocaust
Memories will still fade
In artificial light
The mouth of hell bellows a laugh
That rattles my insides

Father once told me
About something called the sky
And a light that shined so bright
You had to shield your eyes

Drowning in the river styx
The heart still longs for more
One day i'd like my child
To see a vision of the stars
I cannot build a ladder high enough
To reach that long lost place
This city of dust and darkness
Now becomes a grave

Father once told me
About something called the sky
And a light that shined so bright
You had to shield your eyes
