Looking through stained windows
Blue and out of my asylum
The keeper of the key has lost the way
and locked the doors behind him
Beyond these walls and hallowed halls,
there shines a new horizon
Draw the blinds, 'cause in my mind,
I am a rock, I am an island

Enter the asylum, sanctuary waits
through the gates of salvation
Never giving, never living
The keeper's pleased to own you
There's always hell to pay
So on your knees and pray
‘Cause it's any given, any given day

Bleeding through my windowpane
A purgatory rain
Drowning me in sorrow
Will it wash away the pain?
Words before me answer not
and yet forever trying
I'd give my life, the life I live,
to live like I was finally dying

Listen to the wind blow, something's in the air
there's a bad moon rising
Keep denying, keep on hiding here
In this house of the setting sun
Counting one by one
all my numbered days
And it's any given, unforgiven, insurrection, resurrection
Any live long day

Halo of empathy
Shine for all, but you deny me
Hate, rage, fear, they are here
Shaking like a wounded animal
Kept alive behind each door the keeper opens
is a haunting memory
Whispers in the dead of night
The shadows of the liars
They have come for me

Halo of empathy
Shine for all, but you deny me
Hate, rage, fear, they are here
Shaking like a wounded animal

Please, Heaven, rain on me
Wash away my disease
Halo of empathy, shine on me
I believe, shine on me
Shine on me
Won’t you shine on me?
Release ten-fold this stranglehold,
and I'll be free to live like I was finally dying

Burning the asylum, embers through the air
Through the gates of damnation
Rising from the ashes
Nothing's going to keep me here
No one can ever own you,
nor should you ever dare
Embrace the fear of any given, be forgiven, insurrection, resurrection
Any given day
And when it's said and done
Dance with fate begun
Battles lost and won
Hold on, hold on
The May queen turns the key
Unlocks a secret diary
Words bleed endlessly
How long? How long?
And in a twisted mind,
truth and lies are intertwined
Like a puppet on a string
I bring the Keeper back to life

The world I believe breeds strangers like me
Mortal asylums that shelter the disease
Wandering without aim, our devices shift the blame
A death grip on a trigger, a plea of the insane
Resonance of sympathy, frequencies disharmony
Reversing my polarity turns beauty into ugly
Distorted bandwidth in our mind unravel wavelengths undefined
Relentless and malign, cycling over and over

Hold, hold on, you're just a heartbeat away
Hold, hold on to any given day
