Here in this darkness that I lay
Depression heavy in its way
And how my body aches to leave
To sing this final eulogy

My sons I love you evermore
And though the road beckons once more
I see the damage that I've done
In search for redemption

But I am just a broken man
Whose soul cries out to understand
How the madness shatters me
Upon the stage on bended knee

I scream aloud at skies above
That answer mute, bereft in love
I struggle not to fall from grace
Or sing the hymns of my disgrace

We build cathedrals to our pain
Establish monuments to attain
Freedom from all of the scars and the sins
Lest we drown in the darkness within

Mysterys forgotten chords
I strum in vain to please the lord
But he has never answered me
My faith has waned eternally

An empty man who'll pass along
The woes of all religions wronged
And now the shadowed veil it falls
Heed the clarion call

So pray to music build a shrine
Worship in these desperate times
Fill your heart with every note
Cherish it and cast afloat

Cause God is in these clef and tones
Salvation is found alone
Haunted by its melody
Music it will set you free

Let it set you free

We build cathedrals to our pain
Establish monuments to attain
Freedom from all of the scars and the sins
Lest we drown in the darkness within

Music my savior, save me[4x]

We build cathedrals to our pain
Establish monuments to attain
Freedom from all of the scars and the sins
Lest we drown in the darkness within[2x]
