Have you ever felt like everyone else was telling you what you should and should not believe? Yes? This song is for you.

The Light Of Reason

Waiting and watching for signs
I found myself living between the lines
Confused by caprice that I saw
And interpretations of the law
Once on the other side of the door
I knew I would not be afraid anymore
At first I fell
Then I began to soar

Moving away from the fold
I found my way out in the icy cold
A light in the land of the lost
I warmed myself moving against the frost
I kept a fire burning inside
Kicking through the ashes of those who had died
Chilled by the truth â–³ Frozen by those who lied

Sinking in an ocean
Beneath the ice and snow
I struggled against the darkness
That was waiting down below
By the light of reason

Once on the other side of the door
I knew I would not be afraid anymore
At first I fell
Then I began to soar

Sinking in an ocean
Beneath the ice and snow
I struggled against the darkness
That was waiting down below
By the light of reason
Much brighter than the sun
I’ll keep these shadows dancing
Until this day is done

I’m always searching for peace
But I’m happy to settle for some release
I’m happy to settle for some release
I’m happy to settle for some release
