lyrics

Sacrifice for what I seek
But dusk determines I am weak
At the feet of stone giants
Time is frozen still

Fixed eyes on me, never blink
What could two megalithic gods desire?
Riddle for sunrise, mind adrift
In the forest silence

Maybe lost
But in peace
I know not what's ahead
Save the danger

Signify something
With no hint at all
The stones provoke this questioning
Built to stand so tall

Rays of light escape this place
But I can still see your face
In this meadow we decide
With your spirit by my side


The mossy tiles I walk
Leading through the gate
Not one soul can pass until
It’s proven to be fate

Beyond I see abandoned keys
The only ones required
Burden you to push me forth
Guide me past the fire

I'm not alone in here
You make this cavern clear
But puzzles lie ahead
The ones we used to dread

We conquer what we fear
Make shadows disappear
The keys fall into grasp
We flee the dark at last

Rays of light escape this place
But I can still see your face
In this meadow we decide
With your spirit by my side

Rays of light escape this place
But you can still see your face
Far from finished, we move on
Never waiting for the break of dawn
