Our Solemn Hour

Sanctus Espiritus! redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Espiritus! insanity is all around us

Sanctus Espiritus!
Sanctus Espiritus!
Sanctus Espiritus!

In my darkest hours
I could not foresee
That the tide could turn so fast to this degree
Can't believe my eyes
How can you be so blind?
Is the heart of stone, no empathy inside?

Time keeps on slipping away and we haven't learned
So in the end now what have we gained?

Sanctus Espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Espiritus, insanity is all around us
Sanctus Espiritus, is this what we deserve?
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony?

Are they themselves to blame
The misery, the pain?
Didn't we let go?
Allowed it,let it grow
If we can't restrain
The beast which dwells inside
It will find it`s way somehow, somewhere in time

Will we remember all of the suffering
`Cause if we fail it will be in vain

Sanctus Espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Espiritus, insanity is all around us
Sanctus Espiritus, is this what we deserve?
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony?

Sanctus Espiritus!
Sanctus Espiritus!

Sanctus Espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Espiritus, insanity is all around us
Sanctus Espiritus, is this what we deserve?
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony? (ending agony!)

Sanctus Espiritus, redeem us from our solemn hour (solemn hour!)
Sanctus Espiritus, insanity is all around us (all aroun us!)
Sanctus Espiritus, is this what we deserve?
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony?

    Sanctus espiritus means holy spirit, as any catholic who gre up pre-vaticanii will tell you. Also, for a latin student, you clearly haven't gotten past the first month.

    it's actually 'Sanctus spiritus' which means something like 'holy breeze' or 'sacred air' or something like that. 'Espiritus' translates as something to do with disability... it doesn't really make sense. I know this because I'm a Latin student.
