Symphony X - Absence of Light Lyrics

Now at my feet, the dying voice of
Balance - nevermore shall there be a
way to fly,
a way to fly on wings of Divinity, as
words of wisdom fade away

The Law of One will fade and die
The rising Moon will crush the Sky

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Seek and find all the secrets left for you
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will you know

The hidden words - a piece of the
puzzle - Time will tell what will be
Between the lines, the past and future
you will find - the ones and zeros are
the key
to unlock what's sealed

The Law of One will fade and die
The rising Moon will crush the Sky

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Justice lost - a travesty we must undo
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will you know

"Awaken all from Set - Amentet -
Worship all that I represent"

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Destruction, death and war are in the
air
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
ruling all that we know

So falls the Night - the darkest hour
Unbound - what once was lost - now is
found
Absence of Light - unbalanced power
Only then will we know

"...curse the fools who look for enswers in a
Rhyme,...I am the future, I am Montu -
Sekhmet"
