Portal – The Light lyrics
Veiled among the brushes, they'll lie and wait for more
A cunning, shrewd appraisal meets superstition lore
Parasites and scavengers, seldom known by name
They'll lie and wait for more

So dance the mice with malice, with watchful eyes away
Or occupied with trinkets, insatiate decay
Brazen with impunity, ruthless sovereign wage
They'll lie and wait for war

To fate we leave our will, to destiny our meals
*When the darkness looms, when perception fails*
We've proven our loath, imparted our seams
*When the fearless move, with inaction we'll condone*
Late the hour'f resolve, when finally we see
*When the helpless call will they fall alone*
The light shines green
*Will we rise, or will we wait*

Impaled among the ashes, a whisper in the squall
Suffered them to anon, to've been nothing at all
If precedents and patterns reveal a certainty
They'll lie in wait

To fate we leave our will, to destiny our meals
*When the darkness looms, when perception fails*
We've proven our worth, we part at the seams
*When the fearless move, with inaction we'll condone*
Late the hour'f resolve, when finally they've seen
*When the helpless call will they fall alone*
The light shines green
*Will we rise, or will we wait*

What can I do | we try our best
I've worries too | our lives aren't blessed
I'm needed here | we've ills at home
The timing's poor | I wish I'd known
Can't change the world | I'm just one man
It's not my problem | Where's Sudan
Why should I care | And who would miss
We suffer true, | but not like this

Blood on my hands, whole world ablaze
On my shoulders, oh how it weighs

Hold your breath and ride on
Just hold your breath and ride on (x3)
