Small fragile hands wielding heavy stones
Trying to break the glass cages that surround them
With no one to comfort and no one to protect them,
their loneliness carries a heavy weight
And are we so tired that we refuse to run the course?
And are we so blind that we forget what's in our hearts?

Autumn brings dusk to life, the endless night
But there is still time to mend the wounds that you bear
Why haven't I fought for you? My one and only regret
Time cries for you, my tears will never forget
And are we so cold that we ignore helpless life?
Are we so naive to think someone else will save them?

The days are gone when I believed that man
would keep the flame alive
A cold heart will never warm
the children for another night
A man lifting the weight of the world,
never to see it all again
Shining our warm light
onto a cold, desolate night

We cannot bring back what is gone,
but we can save all that remains

How can you face the day
when you can live unseen at night
and hide behind your selfish pride
while the children of autumn cry?

We cannot bring back what is gone,
but we can save all that remains

Today I shed my human skin
and spill my blood for the animals I live among
For the animal I have become
On this judgment day of my brothers, I am their keeper

How can you face the day
when you can live unseen at night
and hide behind your selfish pride
while the children of autumn cry?
(x2)
