At first light lay proud foundations.
Sense the greatness that before you unfolds.
Seek no more for hollow answers.
Answers that lay within you all along.
Farewell to dawns seen through saddened eyes.
Farewell to pasts to sorrows chained.
Forget your fears.
You will have everything.
You will be strong and want no more.
You'll be adored.
You will have everything.
Forget your fears and want no more.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by vnv nation. It conveys such an incredible message, and it's filled with such hopefullness and positivity. At first light of every day starts a new beginning, and the opportunity to break away from fears, darkness and sorrow into light and greatness

    General CommentI totally agree with you, this is one of my favorites by vnv. It's one of those where you just want to go out into an open field and sing it into the sky. :)

    General CommentAmen to the above. If you've listened to this song at sunrise then you will totally understand what it is all about.

    That moment of being totally unaware of yourself, your breathing, of anything else that is going on around you, feeling out of time and wihtout being corny at One with everything.

    Great song.

    General CommentI'm not sure what you guys are talking about - I can certainly see how some of the lines could be taken as positive and uplifting, but listening to the tone of the song it seems to convey almost the opposite message. The first two lines remind me of Ozymandias by Shelly more than anything, and the rest seems only positive in the same way as Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. Am I alone in feeling this?
