Lyrics

The Complexity of Light

Written By: Children of Nova

Holding the reigns of the lives you've freed
You have come so far so they won't hang
In your stunning composition
The Complexity of Light
Will call on you to dance in its fire

Now you're in the whole world's view
Counting the crow's feet
I won't bind The Order's reach
I cannot dare

Menacing disguise in your head
Leads you toward the truth
But they won't care

If we leave it soaring
We hide beneath the eyes of fear
To find a reason to believe

Now you're in the whole world's view
Counting the crow's feet
I won't bind The Order's reach
I cannot bear

In these 17 hours I'll be alone
In your black I'll meditate
I won't find out your name
Before its too late

In the point between fear and laughter
You'll find me waiting
Tore down to the bone
With a guiltless cost
Your frightened eyes will find hope
Hiding in your...

Sleep now, dreams will always go away
But are you afraid the sound of my eyes will keep you awake?

In this strange set of days
We will learn what we now deserve
With our strange set of ways
We'll burn

Its been seven years, rising up
The eyes glow never shined so vividly
Its the mask that makes us weak
The hand that never feeds

And we've always known

Arcaedion

Written By: Children of Nova

Am I part of a spreading fire?
Or am I going nowhere?
Will I bleed before I breathe?
Two hands to construct an anthem
And have it build a home
You need to assume control

Arcaedion, I see what you've become
If fate is sold then don't go giving up
Arcaedion, I've been searching all my life
But I couldn't find the robot's eyes

Dream of Novas
Far but listening
Hoping we collide

I fear for the story in which we're calling "Apocalyptic Ending"
Will the light make you afraid?
Two hands to rebuild a nation
And help this world to grow
When I assume control

Arcaedion, I see what you've become
If fate is sold then don't go giving up
Arcaedion, I've been searching all my life
But I couldn't find the robot's eyes

Arcaedion, I'll save you from your home again
Arcaedion, now I finally will confide that I wouldn't mind a robot's eyes

The Fall of Aphonia

Written By: Children of Nova

Distant sounds escape the void where our voices once could speak
Find escape in scars and faded souls taking form

Injecting hope to lift our heads
Forming the eyes of a sudden storm
But can we call it home?

Another breath disposed
Graves are growing closer every gust
With secrets I keep from you

Folding space as we ascend beyond
Is it the call? When do we fall?
Reborn in you

I am not among this trail of living thoughts, keeps you alone
Will we wipe these pages clean?

Losing faith in consciousness,
Now I am born in moving words
My life transcended

Folding space as we ascend beyond
Is it the call? When do we fall?
Reborn in you

The purest form of a soul is made
To count the toll of beauty's fall
The end is all I want
The Fall of Aphonia

Second Sight Blackout

Written By: Children of Nova

Oh I’ve seen all the things that you couldn’t believe
It’s a sideways rapture of broken dreams
Your waves will have no break

I am here to appear, to enlighten you to see the light
So you can take it from their eyes
Are you listening now?

But you keep the love and it breeds a fear
You’ve fallen hard but you stand right here
There’s a poison healing you

So hide your face
You are no longer “Corbin of the Night”
You curse will bring the end of all
And they’ll come for you

Dreams are a curse you know
They couldn’t fake what we don’t believe

Truth comes, you know the ease
To see you for what you are

No, I’ll stand in front of everything!
My hands are an instrument of grace

They don’t know the future I have seen…
So cry for the dawning of the end
And honor me…

Give me a reason, love
We couldn’t follow the one we need

So build me a home we wouldn’t leave

No, I’ll stand in front of everything!
My hands are an instrument of grace

They don’t know the future I will bring…
So fly to the dawning of the end
And honor me…

Trace the whispers of my name
Will it ever exist?

But I’ll burn their eyes if they don’t see
I’ll bring a fate that leaves me cold
As my flame becomes the seed in the end

Leave your homes
Now before he sees you all crawl

What becomes of me?
My fate leaves me cold

What becomes of me?
My fate leaves me…

The Order

Written By: Children of Nova

Now has come the time
To bring color to my eyes
And break the barriers

Survive! We all seek reform
But today we starve no more

It’s born, the cry of a nations hopes
Will never have a home
We just echo through the ages
But not anymore

Find your voice
And sing them the breaking of faith
It’s killing me

We’ve been fighting the end of the night
Can we become conquerors of light?

I’m only one man, forever designed
To destroy what keeps us alive

Let it burn
Hold them till heaven won’t
Let us in, give us cause, fighting off the horde
In a prison of ignorant thought
It’s killing me

Are we the answer? (Its too much)
We are the answer to living again

Flow through, the way you always do

I haven’t given enough
Their will is strong, but I can’t hold it up

Now it sears my veins
And it scolds my name
We are the answer

Peace won’t save us anymore
I can decide your fate
Because it’s mine

When will it end?
It’s killing me

We Collide

Written By: Children of Nova

I can’t keep them anymore

No sudden movements, they crow
Why do I give him all control?

A piece of time
This work of mine
Will summon your descent

We stand in the light of endless years
Beauty is my weakness and I will never see
The weakest side of me

For what they did we shouldn’t crawl
To heal our bleeding ears
I don’t want to show these tears

But we know when our lives are free to grow
I will never keep it coming out of broken souls
To rise in me

And find redemption in this holy place
I took too long to dream

Arconites!
Go and call the names of all that we’ve lost
They won’t stop our pain
They will know our rage
As we step beyond our faith again

Save yourself again
Become and embrace your heart

We reach until the calling seas
Won’t burn beneath our feet anymore

We collide with preaching flames tonight

We don’t want to see this go
I’m right to be afraid of the world I used to know
A victim of my name

The second sight can’t bring you home
But I’m still here
I could die but I won’t cry

So save me from my fate again
Givers worship me before the end will come
Upon the one can keep the light

Save yourself again
You know that we cleanse our hearts

So we stand and feel the whole within
I descend to prowl up on the only home they know

We could not hear his mangled roar
He couldn’t keep the light like before

Our chance to grow will only come
When you’re gone and I say
Its bleeding right from your fainting eyes
Believe me, don’t let me out or to leave

They will come from everywhere

So they wander from me
But you want it off the weak
Ripping on the edge of you

Call all your crows
As they want your eyes to see
You wont call the falling birds to fly from me
