Seven Spires – This God Is Dead

This God Is Dead Lyrics

Pt 1: Smoke and Mirrors

Blindly
Across the sea
Your love
Lit my way through storm and shade
For a thousand years

Today, and every day
Let me be your light
Let me be your light
Always

Another battle, another day
To face the light and pull away from the embrace
Of the shadows where I survive
The agony reminds me I’m alive

Oh mother, I wonder if you knew
Oh father, if only I could speak with you
Did you love my smoke and mirrors?
That should be enough, that would be enough

(Roy Khan:)
I know you found it, that dream you chasеd
Don’t ever think that what you love is a mistakе
Despite the demons that rule you mind
Stay the course, everything will be alright Your mother, she watches over you
My daughter, just know that we are proud of you
From the beyond, you’ll never hear us
But you have our love, you have our love

(Adrienne:)
Can’t afford to die, and can’t afford to lose
(Roy and Adrienne:)
Sweet angel, wish I had been enough for you
All I am is smoke and mirrors
(Adrienne:)
Would you love me if you knew?
Could you love me if you knew?

Pt. 2: Mania and Nothing

What happened to me?
I never saw these bones
I wear this skin like someone else’s clothes
These scraps of childhood scenes are roughly sewn
There’s no tomorrow
Just a day that started lifetimes ago

Back and forth
Mania and nothing
Nothing at all What happened to me?
Who am I?
Everything I’ve been feels like it’s a lie
Food makes me sick and drink makes me fade
Are these my memories?
Am I even awake?

Back and forth
Mania and nothing
Nothing at all

Pt. 3: The Majesty

(Earth, give me strength
Skies, lend your range
Moon, lend your light
Stars, guide my way)

Bow before the majesty
This loathsome demon reborn
Life with new purpose
See the earth through young eyes
Feel the universe through an ancient soul

Pt. 4: Beneath the Morning Star I have known all and nothing
I have stared into the void until it haunted my dreams
Screamed and smiled beneath the morning star
And conducted the chorus of grim constellations

Their lights lied, I died a thousand times
Floating frozen past their majesties
I wandered too far into the black

Non est otium
Tibi putesce mari aeterno
Abhorremus te

Endless nights awake in vain
My imploding brain
Torturing my psyche, there was no escaping myself
My hatred, my failures, my losses, my loathing
There was no hollow peace

This has been my final death, finally accept
All that I am, and all that I’m meant to be
Perhaps eternally

Non est otium
Tibi putesce mari aeterno
Abhorremus te

Pt. 1 Smoke and Mirrors (Reprise):

(Roy and Adrienne):
Blindly, across the sea

(Adrienne:)
Your love…

(Roy:)
Lit your way through storm and shade
For a thousand years

(Adrienne:)
Today, and every day

(Roy and Adrienne:)
I will be your light
Let me be your light
Always

Pt. 5: This God is Dead

Guide of the lost
Guardian of the broken
Bringer of peace in final hours
Happiness is a choice
And purpose, a charted course
I am but a soul-keeper
And this god is dead
