Turn on the night
Let the light shine in,
The zeal of the hour
Beholds the time from within.
Usher me the epic dawn, sublime…
And the euphoric mortality,
Power me the magic harmony, cleansing of the calls
And the divine spirituality.
The thoughts of the mourning mass
Demon-spells the freedom muse,
The placebo affects of the light divine
Stone scripts the wonder views.
I hear some say,
Life is not a waiting room,
Follow the path of the heart
Or else awaits the wrath of doom!
Steadfast the glorious
Beyond the depth of the obvious,
The wisdom of my might
Gallants my kingdom to the victorious.
