Devin Townsend – Genesis lyrics
Tonight, when the soul keeps silent
Say a prayer for the beloved end...
Is only Heaven a game in vain?
We pray for it all

Your time lies in light divine, though the ‘never' stains the ivory...
If joy remains, then the pain must stay
Surrender it all...

Receive this love...
Receive this love...

If you’re saying in your mind: “You're better off dead”
Well, before the madness comes to claim your name: A million years would go by...

(Tell us a story!)

What could I say? What should I say?
It took all of my words and my fantasy worlds and at the heart of it all, there was nothing!

How they meet their maker is their right while they're alive
It’s beautiful!

Let there be light!
Let there be moon!
Let there be stars and let there be you!
Let there be monsters, let there be pain!
Let us begin to live again!
From the top to the bottom: GENESIS!

I, beyond the universe!
I, beyond the mind!

All the world is in this together
Feel no fear, we're fearless forever!
So why can't we just sail away?

Because you're so in love with this island of the mind!
(Know this here island is home.)
You've got to get on your feet again (Genesis)
Get on your feet again!

But without your ‘self', what'll become of you?
(Take your leave now, shut up, shut up...)

Please don't take me from my youth...
(Take your leave now, shut up, shut up...)

When we’re apart, we fall!
TOGETHER, WE FEED THE WORLD!

So let there be light!
Let there be moon!
Let there be stars, and let there be you!
Let there be monsters, let there be pain!
Let us begin to feel again!

From the top to the bottom: GENESIS!
