11. Beyond Evermore

Escape the Dream
by Reflection of Glory

       
Lyrics:

The whispers of my restless heart, scream into my soul
This silent dawn now torn apart by shards of bitter cold
A longing deep within me cries, assured there's more than meets the eyes
this gasp - of hope

The heavy fog oppresses me and makes me doubt my way
A gentle breath caresses me and keeps the mist at bay
A path I've never seen before that leads me to an open door
do I go - should I stay

As I reach the threshold of this trail I do not know
a voice rings clear as crystal through the trees
"You walking sleeper trapped within this world not as it seems,
open your eyes - leave this dream"

I throw wide the door to see the land beyond Evermore
Open my eyes, I realize truly life means more, beyond Evermore

Once I've crossed the threshold to this realm of the unknown
Everything familiar seen anew is dead as stone
Now see goodness shining brighter yet evil right beside her
so dark - so strong

Passing on the trail, are faces so familiar
with rotting flesh so pale, I question if I'm seeing clearer
In chains they drag along, in rank and file unending
dreaming to their song -
- the sweetest melody, it makes me want to sleep
returning to the wrong, and join that evil song
Yet my guide won't let me stray, He's taking me away
into the light, of everlasting day

Following the One who pushes back nightmares within
I see the truth within all earthly things
On my own, I dream in death in Him awake to Life
Enlighten me - open my eyes

I throw wide the door to see the land beyond Evermore
Open my eyes, I realize truly life means more, beyond Evermore

Help me find the door bring me to beyond Evermore
Kill my disguise, reveal my lies give me Your true life, beyond Evermore
