Destiny made her way and found you in a room
They told me, they told me
To undo the rule of mind and body
And nature laughed away as their voices grew
They told me, they told me
Clean out the room and bury the body

But I know you with a heartbeat
So how does the night feel?
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
But now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
But now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone

I haven’t walked for days though I wanted to
You told me, you told me
For with every move, the feeling follows
In nature’s empty face, I am of little use
You told me, you told me
I’m just another fool for the earth to swallow

But the road through most will lead you back
And I will be with you
For the road of your mind will eat you up
On your island of doom
Where the voices all have gathered up
To a choir of fools
But I know my mind will reach you there
And I will be with you

Oh, I know you with a heartbeat
So how does the night feel?
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
And now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
And now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
Why’d you wake me up today?
Why’d you wake me up today?
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
