A melodic power ballad journey of internal imprisonment and darkness to new found release in light and joy. Features shredding acoustic and electric guitar leads.


A lifetime of night; I can't see the dawn
I walk without light; the darkness is strong
The shadows are near; the substance is far
Temptations are here; I'm wounded and scarred

I'm stuck in a pit; bad habits have led
Sins give me fits; my soul, it is dead
I'm trapped in this place; I see no escape
I'm flat on my face; Is there no escape?

Alone in the darkness; crying in shame
A heart filled with hardness; I call out Your Name... Lord

A cloud all around; I can't find my way
My soul makes no sound; it's so hard to pray
I've sunken so low; I've not sought your Face
The darkness it grow; I've fallen from grace

Alone in the darkness; crying in shame
A heart filled with hardness; I call out Your Name (2x)

Now that I have repented; gone to Confession sins are forgiven
Darkness has no more power in this new hour that I am living

A light in the darkness shining on me
A heart full of gladness; I give thanks to Thee (2x)

From darkness to light...
