Show me a place that ain't hell
If there's space
Give me room to breathe
That's all that I need
For this body can't fail
And if music be the food of love
Play on, give me excess of it
Let it all out
But please let me out of here

And I shall rise from the ashes
Grow like a rose from the ruins
There must be light in the darkness
Hope at the end of the night
Yes, I've been tryin' all my life
To get to heaven
But awoke in the eye of the storm
But I shall rise from the ashes
Grow from the ruins
And return back home to you

This is a call from the jails
Coming up to those prisoners of pleasure
Drunk on the blood
Of the next generations
And I've been through many strange confusions
Splitting myself into too many faces
Now, the mirror is broken
I can see the worms behind

And I shall rise from the ashes
Grow like a rose from the ruins
There must be light in the darkness
Hope at the end of the night
Yes, I've been tryin' all my life
To get to heaven
But awoke in the eye of the storm
But I shall rise from the ashes
Grow from the ruins
And return back home

You may well have your ways of triumph
You may well have your ways of truth
Just give me some room to breathe
Just give me some room to breathe
Just give me some room
Just give me some room to breathe
Just give me some room to breathe
Just give me some room to breathe
Just give me some room
That's all that I need
That's all that I need
Me and my strange friends
You know
We all belong to that grand astral body
And there's you in front of those legendary curtains
Take my hand before you wither in the crowd
And I'll take you out of here
I'll take you out of here
I'll take you out of here
Just give me your hands
Just give me your hands
Just give me your hands
Just give me your hands
And I'll take you out of here
I'll take you out of here
Take you out of here
I'll take you out of here
Take you out of here
Ooh, I'll take you out, I'll take you out
I'd take you out of here

This is the end of the show
I don't know, was I wrong? Was I right?
Oh, love, I don't know
I wasn't perfect for sure
But now I feel like a new born baby
Lying in the dew of the morning
Laughing at the sky
Like a brave new Apollo

And I shall rise from the ashes
Grow like a rose from the ruins
There must be light in the darkness
Hope at the end of the night
Yes, I've been tryin' all my life
To get to heaven
But awoke in the eye of the storm
But I shall rise from the ashes
Grow from the ruins
And return back home to you
Back home to you
