DISTANT LIGHT

Sounds and Lyrics

Prometheus

Hail the fallen bringer of light and wisdom!

Verse 1:

They called him a liar
And damned for mere desire
Bring knowledge to lowly -
Gods' secret fire holy

Then they shackled him and ripped his eyes
Oh, but immortals can not die

Verse 2:

The torment eternal
For titan ever vernal
The torturers feathered
Snatch skin and peck his liver

Crushed, abandoned, cursed 'till final day
Oh, but his savior's on the way

Chorus:

Darkness and light, the trail of pain behind
Eagles tear flesh, bleeding wounds close up
Years and days, he suffers for mankind
Outcast of heaven, Prometheus

Verse 3:

Now I'm left with dreams, tears of rage and vain illusions
Chained to rock, but never ever will I beg for their compassion
My fire burns again, it's my visitation
My fire burns in men

Verse 4:

That was the thing that frightened gods most, but now it's late
Time has passed by and fire confined
Burned their grandeur alive
