"Advent" as written by Lisa Germaine Gerrard, Brendan Michael Perry, Peter Lawrence Ulrich, Scott Rodger, James E. Pinker and Gus Ferguson....
In the hour of darkness our worlds collide.
Assailed by a madness that has plagued our lives.
At the point of departure on the eve despair'
No recourse to reason seems to make any sense at all.

The light of hope shines in your eyes.
Dementia has gone, purged from inside.
Throughout our wanderings in a land of lies.
We fell from gods grace into a sea of storms.

In self renovation, celebration of love.
These both are virtues we seem to have left behind.
The light of hope shines in your eyes.
Dementia has gone purged from inside.

Lay down your heart. Induce the will of love.
To restore what little faith that you may have lost.
As morning brings rebirth a new day will dawn to ease our troubled minds.
Turn away on your side and dream of days to come.

    My OpinionI imagine a couple in bed at night, before going to sleep, (s)he is thinking about how badly things are becoming for them.

    Self-renovation of their lives together and the celebration of their love has completely got forgotten through the years, and is now irreparably left behind, replaced by storms (of s**t :D).

    Eventually, (s)he just tries to wash away all these bad feelings inside, and tries to put some hope in the fresh new energy that a new day can give to you ("dawn will easy our troubled minds"), so just says to the partner to turn on his/her side now, time to sleep.

    "Dream of days to come" sounds like: dreams of nice days of love together we might have, but it leaves some bitter flavour in my mouth, like that there is no hope that those dreams could become true never anymore. They've gone through too many storms (of s**t), it's hard to heal that.
