Lyrics

    When darkness falls
    May it be
    That we should see the light
    
    When reaper calls
    May it be
    That we walk straight and right
    
    When doubt returns
    May it be
    That faith shall permeate our scars
    
    When we’re seduced
    Then may it be
    That we not deviate our cause
    
         All sinners, a future
         All saints, a past
         Beginning, the ending
         Return to ash
    
         Now that we’re dead, my dear
         We can be together
         Now that we’re dead, my dear
         We can live forever
    
    When all is pain
    May it be
    It’s all we’ve ever known
    
    When flame consumes
    May it be
    It warms our dying bones
    
    When loss has won
    May it be
    It’s you I’m madly fighting for
    
    When Kingdom comes
    May it be
    We walk right through that open door
    
         All sinners, a future
         All saints, a past
         Beginning, the ending
         Return to ash
    
         Now that we’re dead, my dear
         We can be together
         Now that we’re dead, my dear
         We can live forever
    
         All sinners, a future
         All saints, a past
         Beginning, the ending
         Return to ash
    
         Now that we’re dead, my dear
         We can be together
         Now that we’re dead, my dear
         We can live forever
    
    Return to ashes, shed this skin
    Beyond the black, we rise again
    We shall live forever
