As I slipped, I saw the river
Rushing towards me as I fell
And the question running through my mind
"Am I to go to hell?"
What becomes of my loved ones
and those whom I held dear
In a plummet towards the earth I know
I can't live my last seconds in fear
Let's crack open the sky and light up the world
no one will ever know why the unexpected whirlwind
Picked up our livevs and sent the fire shooting through our hearts
Oh, I can't wait.
For the sunlight to paint the sky blue and bright again
But then the angels arrive to lead me away
Maybe I don't want to go, oh please let me stay
and the clouds poured down
to shed their tears on the ground
When the thunder rolled in
Your lightning flashed and demanded
Let's crack open the sky and light up the world
no one will ever know why the unexpected whirlwind
Picked up our livevs and sent the fire shooting through our hearts
Cause I can't wait.
For the sunlight to paint the sky blue and bright again
You think the chosen are few?
We are all the select
In this corkscrew life span, a downward cycle
My blue ink-laced pen with a mind of its own
Leaves me here in a paper-lined castle
With nothign to describe but a painting my mind
So here's the story-teller inside
Open wide
And I won't hide
In every golden-eyed dream dulled by the grinding of death's course swipe
The candle still burns brightly and true
Through the ice-bitten wind with its frosted grin
A sweetened smile coated with lies
Won't keep us from trying, soul to the grind
He is our light
Day or night
A shelter from this storm
A shelter from disaster
A refuge from this storm
