Set me aflame and cast me free.
Away, you wretched world of tethers.
Always thought that I would stand
Through the endless night and day
I have never wanted more.
Before the faceless name of justice.
Like some law unto myself,
Like a child of God again.
And if rain brings winds of change

That I have never wanted more.
Let it rain on us forever.
I have no doubt from what I've seen
As a symbol of beginning.
I have no doubt from what I've seen
With this line I'll mark the past
That I have never wanted more.

In this picture stands a man,
Far away, alone and distant.
Like a solitary field
In some nameless foreign land.
All around the points of light
Start to dim and cease transmitting.
And then there was nothing more.
Shadows fell on futile games
Through the screams of falling steel.
By the light of flares and wisdom.

All the doubts I could not face.
All this time I wanted more.
With a line I'll mark the past
As a symbol of beginning.
To the gods whose names we've lost
And the names who gave in vain.

And if rain brings winds of change
Let it rain on us forever.
I have no doubt from what I've seen
That I have never wanted more.
With this line I'll mark the past
As a symbol of beginning.
I have no doubt from what I've seen
That I have never wanted more.
Set me aflame and cast me free.

Through the endless night and day
Away, you wretched world of tethers.
I have never wanted more.
Always thought that I would stand

Before the faceless name of justice.
Like some law unto myself,
Like a child of God again.

And if rain brings winds of change
That I have never wanted more.
Let it rain on us forever.
I have no doubt from what I've seen
With this line I'll mark the past
As a symbol of beginning.
I have no doubt from what I've seen
That I have never wanted more.

Sever the line to the guilty past,
To the ones who brought us nothing
Spoke of futures brave and proud
And brought only hate and war.

Lined the roads with hollow praise.
Shadows fell on their futile ways
Marked the land with paper statues.
And then there was nothing more.
