Crown – From The Ashes I Shall Return lyrics

Ad astra
To the stars
The soul is striving
Called by an unstilled longing
To become what the deep symbol shows

I am a song that dies in the night
Yet I carry the star within me
The star is a ray of light above light
I am just a mirror
Forget myself and let it shine
The pure mind reflects the force
Like the moon shines
With the light of the sun
The one and only is all that I am

My soul longs to return
The call from light to light
The soul is made of a thousand questions
It dwells within my heart

Flowing forth and coming back again
Nothing can withstand the absolute

The path to the highest is a bridge
I wander clad in my earthly form
Over the river of this world
I hear it's roar though
It swallows me not

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Spirit to spirit
I shall return
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Spirit to spirit
I shall return

Outside by the gate
I love to be alone
And listen to the birds
In the late sun's light
I have lost myself
No longer know who I am
For the great one alone
I bear now in mind

Beyond I and thou
I saw that I am the mirror
Toward the most high
Toward the inmost heart

In the moment of prayer
Is eternity
It stands in the sky
Like a morning star
In the now of the heart
Lies my whole life

The spirit written in stars
Painted in space
Mixed with matter
And knowledge of itself
Was shadowed
Destiny created
By the most high

Be set free by the call of the free
Be set free by the call of the heart
Be set free by the call of the light
Be set free by the call of the one

Eye that opens and then closes
Such is the life
That seem endless to thee
It shines with happiness
And it's tears do flow
No eye exist that never wept
Eye looks deep into the world
Perceive the true
And understand

The opposition
Between nothingness and light
May mine eye direct
It's gaze to the source
May the light of wisdom unite
The light of grace shine into my heart
Purify the soul
And raise me to heaven

The very first cry in this life a prayer
And the last breath a word of hope
It is the word that grants us salvation
Lord hear me

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Spirit to spirit
I shall return
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Spirit to spirit
I shall return
