"Temples and ivory towers
that once stood tall now lie in ruin
With shattered icons and broken dreams
Here they are: the servants!"

On this day when all our heroes have fallen,
justice has become a fading memory
One day our stones will shatter your glass castle walls
when time and the elements have taken their toll

(Frozen hearts) Frozen hearts
(So enslaved) so enslaved
(A dying wish) A dying wish only to be free
Blood of the life forsaken

Mutiny breeds as we awaken from this dream,
but the usurpers are still playing God
Justice will soon end their reign over our world
Dreaming through the years, our voices would be heard

Tell me, who will wear my crown of thorns today?
Will we ever be saved,
or are we destined to drown in our own misery?
Don't let go, never let go
I'm not sorry for dying

Prayer brought another hero
with strength beyond our years
Putting faith in his name
will end the tyranny today
Rebuilding the ruins! (x2)

Fallen sand castles and broken clay soldiers
lie before me on this warm spring day
Now tables are turned and life's breeding justice
Retribution only a heartbeat away today

(Frozen hearts) Frozen hearts
(So enslaved) so enslaved
(A dying wish) A dying wish only to be free
Tell me, who will wear my crown of thorns today?
Will we ever be saved,
or are we destined to drown in our own misery?
Don't let go, never let go
I'm not sorry for dying

What once were ruins are again towers standing tall
Rebirth for the ones who deserve
Time will heal all wounds,
but only faith can rebuild our ruins
Rebuilding the ruins!
