This night will fall like any other
Daylight subsides and shadows crawl
Out from under black corners
Hiding something stirs

All so restless
Cracked windows open wide
Dead-bolt turns, doors creak open
Whispers and moonlight there to guide

Come raise your lantern to the sky
Can we illuminate this night?
We'll dance like heathens round a flame
While the world sleeps we are awake

The black brook calls, it sings a chorus
While the gathering swells
The flames grow tall right before us
As drums keep pounding

And the masses now are fusing
Bodies pressed and tangled
As we revel in confusion
Our inhibitions thrown into the fire

Come raise your lantern to the sky
Can we illuminate this night?
We'll dance like heathens round a flame
While the world sleeps we are awake

Here in the dark we are safe from the judgment
Now arm in arm locked tight so no one gets in
The hell is sent, see, child, you are hellbent
But hell is not where we're going, hell is where we've been

Come raise your lantern to the sky
And let's illuminate this night
We'll dance like heathens around the flame
And while the world sleeps we are awake

Raise your lantern to the sky
And let's illuminate this night
We'll dance like heathens around the flames
While the world sleeps we are awake

(Raise your lantern to the sky)
Yeah, we are awake
(Hey, hey, hey)
We are awake
(Now raise your lantern to the sky)
We are awake, yeah, we are awake, we are awake
