The Furious Light (Acoustic)

lyrics

I’m standing on the brink
I’m drowning in the drink
I’m here to dance and sing
I’m here to tear down everything

I’m here to heed the call
To leave my writing up on the wall
I've lost my pride and I’ve come to fall
At the feet of rock and roll

It’s the voice calling from within
Like claws underneath the skin
Like the pain of a secret sin
Telling me, “You’ve got only your life to give”

So let’s hold a tavern wake
Raise your glass now, for goodness sake
Here’s to the story, always the same
Here’s to the song that we all sing

Here’s to the saints in the midnight choir
To the cowards and the liars
We’re all drawn to the dark beyond the fire

Wanna rebel against everything
But the truth is, I’m afraid.
There’ll be blood, and there’ll be flames
Please, lord, give me the strength

It doesn’t matter what I believe
The hound of heaven is hunting me
I guess I’m The Saint of Blasphemy
And this is my Gethsemane

I‘ll burn down hell to make it happen
Sort the ruins out in song
Beat back the long darkness before it falls

There ain’t no use turning back
So tear the sails down from the mast
Rip the future from the past
Let the first become the last

While every night and every morn
More to misery are born
Every morning and every night
We’re dancing in the furious light
