When life has slipped behind this isolation
Cruelty & hatred have become
The cause of those whose eyes are full of wanting
The truth will still abandon none
So you must carry this light into the darkness
You shall be a star unto the night
You will find hope alive among the hopeless
That is your purpose to this life
The lips draw words
And hands find actions
Still there is more within one heart
And to the silence, will you answer?
Before the chaos, will you come?
Do not injustice to another
Defend the weak & innocent
Let truth & honor always guide you
Let courage find a life within
Stand up when no one else is willing
Act not in hatred or in spite
Be to this world as a perfect knight
Even if it means your life

Here I am,
Alive among the injured and the dead
Here I am
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Sancta Sophia
Here I am
Peace is born to your victory
Athena Sophia
Here I am
Thy will be done
How can I hope to live what I cannot dream?

You cannot map the ways of divinity
This much is known
Only unto God
and through the doubts
And through your confusion
Know that you are chosen to this fight
Look to find a soul filled with compassion
Look to see a living source of light
Do not injustice to another
Defend the weak & innocent
Let truth & honor always guide you
Let courage find a life within
Stand up when no one else is willing
Act not in hatred or in spite
Be to this world as a perfect knight
Even if it means your life

Here I am
Alive among the injured and the dead
Here I am
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Sancta Sohpia
Here I am
Peace is born to your victory
Athena Sohpia
Here I am
Thy will be done
How can I hope to be what I can't believe?

"The human animal is a beautiful and terrible creature,
capable of limitless compassion and unfathomable cruelty.
If you wish to find that which becomes the dividing line between
mankind and other biological classifications, it rests not in
brain size, dominance, or even emotional capability. It lies within
the innate capacity for human beings to reflect on their actions
and show regret. It is most certainly the ability to empathize that gives
them their position. All mammals understand love and affection, but
only man shows a propensity to place himself in the shoes of
another life-form. Losing this capability, among individuals of the species
reduces them below their much heralded position
and readies the climate for the likely fall of man.
A fall from grace.
"

Do not injustice to another
Defend the weak & innocent
Let truth & honor always guide you
Let courage find a life within
Stand up when no one else is willing
Act not in hatred or in spite
Be to this world as a perfect knight
Even if it means your life

Here I am
Alive among the injured and the dead
Here I am
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Sancta Sophia
Here I am
Peace is born to your victory
Athena Sophia
Here I am
Thy will be done
How can I hope to find what I cannot see?

Here I am
Alive among the injured and the dead
Here I am
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
Sancta Sophia
Here I am
Peace is born to your victory
Hagia Sohpia
How can I hope be, what's inside of me?

    General CommentFirst of all Sophia is a name that means Wisdom. Athena is the goddess of wisdom in greek mythology.

    Second of all, when decyphering his songs, you must realize that a lot of songs come from really profound dreams, and are from his INTERPRETATIONS of greek mythology.

    Now, I talked with Rogue about this song at one point. He said, roughly, "Imagine that the gods choose you, shine a light on you, and tell you how to live your life. Not what to do, but how to do what you do." Be a good person, stand up for what you believe in, that is the general meaning.

    Also the chorus partially comes from his family crede.

    General CommentSancta Sophia was the name of a Seminary where people could study ancient, metaphysical, and esoteric wisdom.
    It opened in the early '90's.
    I wonder if he was aware of the place

    General CommentSuch a good song, great message. It's very powerful, like Dragonfly. It's one of those songs you can just sing to, the ones you keep singing, even after it has ended.

    General CommentIt seems almost to be a combination of science and religion... just from the spoken words, and the references to (a1kemi) Santa and Athena Sofia.
