​Darker Skies Once Radiant

This song is by Midnight Odyssey and appears on the album Shards Of Silver Fade (2015).

Take, but a moment to be
In this reverie
In a lifeless state
Of serenity
Falling far from a throne
Perched high within the stars
Your light is seen by all
They dream upon your fall
Your path is destined here
Below where mortals fear
Dark unforgiving skies
Once radiant, now cry
Fade, to a paler shade
Hidden in the bones
Of the buried gods
And turned to stone
Fallen far from your throne
Pushed down beneath the stars
Your light was seen by all
In dreams they see you fall
Your path has led you here
Where even gods will fear
Dark unforgiving skies
Once radiant...
Take a moment to hear
As death draws ever near
His hand will guide your eyes
To a dark world inside
This world will be your home
How the sharp thorns have grown
His words will drown your heart
Flesh and soul will not part
Words are worthy of fear
Meanings are never clearTongues will tell you lies
Truth hides deep in the eyes
When seeds of doubt are sown
Hidden paths stay unknown
When truth finds you in the dark
Death will leave his mark
In darker reveries, you're sitting here swallowing the empty dreams
Of thoughts afraid
In all the centuries, you wouldn't be wallowing in endless streams
Of darker shades
In all your memories you're thinking of the darker skies once radiant
In stellar flame
Now at your ending, you're staring at the eyes of death embracing
Your fearful face
Fade, to a paler shade
Hidden in the bones
Of the buried gods
And turned to stone
Fallen from your throne
Beneath the stars
Your light was seen by all
Now they see you fall
Your path has led you here
Where even gods will fear
Dark unforgiving skies
Once radiant...
In darker reveries, you're sitting here swallowing the empty dreams
Of thoughts afraid
In all the centuries, you wouldn't be wallowing in endless streams
Of darker shades
In all your memories you're thinking of the darker skies once radiant
In stellar flame
