Im a dweller on the threshold
And Im waiting at the door
And Im standing in the darkness
I dont want to wait no more

I have seen without perceiving
I have been another man
Let me pierce the realm of glamour
So I know just what I am

Im a dweller on the threshold
And Im waiting at the door
And Im standing in the darkness
I dont want to wait no more

Feel the angel of the present
In the mighty crystal fire
Lift me up consume my darkness
Let me travel even higher

Im a dweller on the threshold
As I cross the burning ground
Let me go down to the water
Watch the great illusion drown

Im a dweller on the threshold
And Im waiting at the door
And Im standing in the darkness
I dont want to wait no more

Im gonna turn and face the music
The music of the spheres
Lift me up consume my darkness
When the midnight disappears

I will walk out of the darkness
And Ill walk into the light
And Ill sing the song of ages
And the dawn will end the night

Im a dweller on the threshold
And Im waiting at the door
And Im standing in the darkness
I dont want to wait no more

Im a dweller on the threshold
And I cross some burning ground
And Ill go down to the water
Let the great illusion drown

Im a dweller on the threshold
And Im waiting at the door
And Im standing in the darkness
I dont want to wait no more

Im a dweller on the threshold
Dweller on the threshold
Im a dweller on the threshold
Im a dweller on the threshold
