There is a voice calling for me
There is a light coming down on me
There is a doubt that is clearing
There is a day that is dawning

There is a wound that is healing
There is a season waiting for me
There is a road that is turning
There is a fire still burning

A sickness in me
Constant pace towards the end
The need is stronger
This time the need is deeper

There is a peace I am searching
There is a freedom I'm depending on
There is a pain that's never ending
There is a rain falling only on me

There is a dream I am living
There is a life I'm dreaming of
There is a death I'm awaiting
There is a home I am deserting

I hold my breath in wait
Only moments remain
Movement for departed hope
Effect for absent friends

Sever the faith from my body
Leave me begging for more
Take what I have and deliver me
Into everlasting sleep

Soothing trance
Colours fade
And disappear
Ethereal light
Showing me what I can do without

In a motionless scene
There is only me
I take what I can
Controlling you to get ahead

Fading away
And leaving
Long for sleep
Closer now
Lead the way into death

Every wretched dream
I've left behind
Every waking hour
I lie in wait

Sucked inside by will
Gone into the flood
All my questions unfurled
As I was put to the test

Once I'm below there's no turning back

Plunging into the deepest void
Departed shell left drained behind

Pacing roads unknown
Searching for a new home
Desert in my eye
Barren lands inside

    General CommentThese lyrics are the most Bibical and obivious! The Master in this song is anoited by etheral light then teaches his great wisdom unto his apprentices. He must do it fast because he is awaiting his death. Therefore I conclude that the Master is Christ and the apprentices are his apostles.
