What do you see in me that was worth the sacrifice you've made?
What is there left to save?
With a purpose still unclear, I set my eyes on the altar where died my selfishness, as I walk the path you've laid down before me.

Revival has never been closer.
Renew my vision, for my eyes forgot the colors with which we painted hope.
Free me from my flesh prison and teach me how to stand on broken legs.
I will stand strong by your side. I will stand strong.

Blood and water are what feed our seeds.
We are hungry and thirsty, our throats dry from your word.
We are those who seek essence and purpose and those whose cause will stand the test of time.
With a new heart, I emerge from the abyss the world has plunged me into and I proclaim:
"I am a free man, and I forever live above earthly fears."
I am free and I hold no fear.
I am free and my heart holds no fear.

I was born to live again, in a world with a desperate need for spiritual restoration.

As the sun rises over the children of the night, I contemplate a state of devastation.

I will not be crushed.
Cast away the weight of our sins, sanctify the souls of the worthless.
Under skies wide open, we walk down the path of atonement, paved with the remains of a past glory.
Ruin is the gift I received, my ascending way to rebirth.

We'll clean our slate from the blood of the martyrs, heal from the wounds of a guilt-ridden conscience.
Such cleansing comes with sacrifice, so we'll put to death our former selves.
