Sleeping child, my bleeding vial
With twisted wings we learn to fly
Growing still while prophets scorned
By tainted sun a shadow born
Holding the wind at my will
Yet peace in dreams eludes me still
Sleeping child, my bleeding vile
In knowing life I've learned to die

Flooding my flesh with feeling
Haunting the touch receiving
Bearing belief I'm breathing
Led by the skin I'm leaving
Stealing a sinner's silence
Conscience or fate decides us
Watch 'til my will is worn
Silent and near torn

The watcher I am
My life became when yours began
The watcher I stand
The slave myself
The fire burning home I am

[SOLO MAC]

They say they'll only take the time
What right is theirs to claim what's mine?
I have deceived, believed, betrayed
I've tamed the flame, not stepped away
This overflow I understand
The meaning aching through my hands
But letting go's not giving in
The reason breaking from my skin

This martyr froze, in scenes of gold
The perfect flaw that haunts my soul

The watcher I am
My life became when yours began
The watcher I stand
The slave myself
The fire burning home I am

Feeling home, escaping
The pilgrim running scared
Into the bleakest autumn
Catching rain inside
The shell he's crawled into
His life grown smaller
Living without walls
Mirroring his demons
The revelation scars
Itself into his being
How far must we be
To feel too far away?

Tracing the lines
Marking the memories
Hidden so dutifully
By the mask that's been forced down on me
Is this all I am?
Is this all that we can be?
Is this all that you can see?
My one now born to three

[SOLO RASS]
[SOLO DAN]

The Watcher, in life I am
The Watcher, The slave myself
The fire burning home I am
The Watcher, in life I am
The Watcher, the slave myself
The fire burning home I am
