Somewhere in the end of all this hate
There's a light ahead
That shines into this...
Grave that's in the end of all this pain
In the night ahead,
There's a light upon this house on a hill
Living, living still
Their intention is to kill
And they will, they will

But the children are doing fine
I think about them all the time
Until they drink the wine
And they will, they will, they will

Somewhere in the end we're all insane
To think that light will
Save us from this pain that's, in the end all this pain
In the night there's a light upon this...

House on a hill
Living, living still
Their intention is to kill
And they will, they will
But the children are doing fine
I think about them all the time
Until they drink their wine
And they will, they will, they will

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (2x)

I am not afraid
I won't burn out in this place
My intention is to fade
And I will, I will in this

House on a hill
The dead are living still
Their intention is to kill
And they will, they will
But the children are safe inside
Out of pocket, out of mind
Until they drink the wine and they will, they will, they will

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh (2x)
