thorn lyrics – blind guardian

a black swan is born that night
the misty pond
(has)
got a new king, got a new king
so what can we do with our lives

when it all begins
it’s hard and it’s cruel
will grace die in pain?
will light ever rise again?

i’m trapped in darkness
still i reach out for the stars
i’m moving in silence
i leave it all far behind

oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll pray at the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns

let us march on to the fields of sacrifice
(i’m)
wondering why i’ll carry on
will i betray myself to rise

in the silence it’s time to explain
(and)
search for truth in lies, useful lies
needless love’s d*mned

what can we do with our lives
when it all begins

oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll pray at the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns

come follow me
and you will see
how it will be
when all the pain is gone away

oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll pray at the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns

let us march on
though there’s no hope at our side
let us be brave
though by glory we are denied
but don’t you think it’s time for us
to bring to an end

come play the song of death
the wisdom in us both
will make it special guaranteed
play the song of death

i’m lost in the depths of his eyes
i can’t flee
inner pain caused insanity
it’s deep within

the fear and the hunger
enslaved and denied
by my love and my enemies
i’m the ill gotten son

oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll pray at the edge of th*rns
oh, at dawn
i’ll face the edge of th*rns
