A Distant Light Was Shining (The Old Dead Tree)

A Distant Light Was Shining A distant light was shining For all these years My life was pretty dark I had to live with my fears All this time it helped me to hold on But it's becoming useless So I should let it down Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away Take that mask off your face, are your eyes made of clay? Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away Stop lying to yourself, you won't face it today I finally broke down the walls of my prison Constantly exhausted for no good reason But I won't complain or open my veins A better life's waiting, where I'm now going! Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away Take that mask off your face, are your eyes made of clay? Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away Stop lying to yourself, you won't face it today I never thought it could become obsolete so fast This decision was hard to take, but I made it at last I know it took me so long I wasn't strong enough I know it took me so long To what life do I belong? You've never felt this taste It is much less sweet than the rest But you cannot define it It fills your mouth and your mind It makes you feel like you're going blind You can't get rid of it by spitting I finally broke down the walls of my prison Constantly exhausted for no good reason But I won't complain or open my veins A better life's waiting, where I'm now going!
