The time I spend reflecting
Always growing, never-ending
Brings home the truth through an age of decay
Showing me my form so frail
Understanding life's betrayal
Finding the answers on my final day

And now I see the truth
I face the altar screaming

Am I a hero born by secrets that I hold?
Did they enslave me when I came into the cold?
Always asking when I suffer do they see?
The flashback now reveals the stranger who waited was me

Inside the tomb of ages
Shadows writhe while battle rages
Darkness can show me the way we will go
Lie beside the embers burning
Flames alive, their faces turning
Scarring the earth and the ashes below

Nothing can save me now
This light is slowly fading

Am I a hero born by secrets that I hold?
Did they enslave me when I came into the cold?
Always asking when I suffer do they see?
The flashback now reveals the stranger who waited was me
Nothing ventured, nothing gained and I'm ashamed
You spent your life wasting away they said
And in the twilight I am standing in the rain
The flashback showing me, the traitor who waited in vain

All hope is fading now
There's nothing left worth saving

Am I a hero born by secrets that I hold?
Did they enslave me when I came into the cold?
Always asking when I suffer do they see?
The flashback now reveals the stranger who waited was me
Nothing ventured, nothing gained and I'm ashamed
You spent your life wasting away they said
And in the twilight I am standing on the way
The flashback showing me, lost in an age of decay
