prologue: across the sky lyrics – emilie autumn

“prologue: across the sky”

what is your substance?
whereof are you made,
that millions of strange shadows on you tend?
since everyone, have everyone, one shade
and you, but one, can every shadow lend

see beyond the moment
think beyond the day
hear the word
my voice will not be cast away
fatalistic fortune
ever near the end
love goes on
but time does not return again

across the sky
i will come for you
if you ask me to
demystify
your uncommon dreams
stranger things have come true

fear no more the midnight
fear no more the sea
close your eyes, regret nothing
you’re safe with me
look into the shadows
step into the mist
search your land but doubt never
i still exist

across the sky
i will come for you
if you ask me to
demystify
your uncommon dreams
stranger things have come
across the sky
i will come for you
if you ask me to
demystify
your uncommon dreams
stranger things have come true

ask yourself: is this all there is?
take no answer but the one you find
i have put my faith in aberrations of your kind
but even if you’re in my mind

across the sky
i will come to you
if you ask me to
demystify
your uncommon dreams
stranger things have come
(across the sky)
should we hear the silence?
should we hear the noise?
(i will come for you)
i don’t need this blind acceptance
i have made my choice
(if you ask me to)
(demystify)
light lives in the darkness
beauty lives in pain
(your uncommon dreams)
in destruction we may lose ourselves
but still i will remain
(stranger things have come true)
across the sky
across the sky

see beyond the moment
think beyond the day
hear the word
hear the word
hear the word
hear the word
