Once again I'm here alone, my secret life awaits me,
Still a thousand miles away from a land of broken dreams,
Night falls and the stream is shining, forced the section behind the lines,
Hours breached in endless we go, time and time again.

Try to understand, desperately locked in a dream in my hand,
Will you wait along for me tonight,
Hold me, save me.

[Chorus]
A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives,
One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive,
Cry for the day to return like no one can understand,
We all face our fears in the world,
We all hold our place in the universe,
For eternity...

Hide the lines precede myself, erase the past from my space,
In the tears of loneliness and far across the land,
Once sure, but my eyes are blinded,
Fate detached for a place to hide,
Lost generations so far, ancient light returns.

Come and see the light, taken away by the man in the skies,
Won't you wait along again tonight,
Save me, Save me.

[Chorus]
A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives,
One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive,
Cry for the day to return like no one can understand,
We all face our fears in the world,
We all hold our place in the universe,
For eternity...

Try to understand, desperately locked in a dream in my hand,
Will you wait along for me tonight,
Hold me, save me.

[Chorus]
A star shines in all of us, we'll search for all our lives,
One day we'll find a way, and a reason to survive,
Cry for the day to return like no one can understand,
Our past has returned to us all,
Our memories will fly free forever,
So far from the cries of the world,
For eternity...

    Track 3 of their album 'Ultra Beatdown' (2008). I just love the 'WHITT WHOO!!' of Herman's whammy bar after the second to last chorus!

    The song is about how life is worth living. It laments how the “day” (light and our consciousness) will fade away from us. It celebrates, however, how our past will return to us, and our memories will be with and entertain us. Most of all it celebrates how we will be free from the “cries of the world” (the pain and strife of the world) for eternity.

    I love the WHITT WHOO guitar thing too! This song is about Souls burning at the stake, dragons defeating the humans in battle in the Wastelands, and Ever-Marching armies of demons crushing the skulls of their fallen enemies as the trudge through knee-deep gore!!! MUAHAHAHAHHA!!!

    And that's Reasons to live (and every other D-Force song) in a nut-shell.
