Black Cathedral

holding out for something more
it’s sanctuary i’m searching for
past the lights at the city’s edge
past fields of forgottenness

a church lies
obscured in fog
black as obsidian
let me in your doors, give me a future!

black cathedral
black cathedral
black cathedral
grant me sanctuary

cathedral
black cathedral
black cathedral
grant me sanctuary

hunted by my shadow
running from regret
i cannot sleep
i cannot wake
i cannot take it

the doors stand cold,
barred and dispassionate
oh cruel fate,
give me a future!
