Shadowborn (from The Clockwork Fable)
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Running through a rust-locked city
Tired eyes yet hearts still beating
Iron-clad the steam clouds climbing higher
Shadows dance and pistons screaming
Can you hear the darkness breathing?
Stairway to the surface; yet we close our minds

We wait for a time, We wait for our lives
Is the sunrise just a dream we lost?
A Day we left behind?
Is there life on these streets?
Is there something left for me?
Are we what we we?ve always been before?
We are shadow born.

Fighting past our infestation
Metal bites at deprivation
A specter of the harmony we knew before
Gears grind through automation
Cursed we cry in isolation
Hard hold our heads high when our life is low

Father''s song, mother said,
Does it linger in your head?
Talisman, round your neck,
Does it fill your heart with dread?

Welcome to our world of shadow
Welcome child, embrace your sorrow
Wardens of the light now raise their banners high
Yesterday was our tommorow
Leave a trail; your soul will follow
Hanging onto daydreams where the sun still shines

We wait for a time, We wait for our lives
Is the sunrise just a dream we lost?
A Day we left behind?
Is there life on these streets?
Is there something left for me?
Are we what we we?ve always been before?
We are shadow born.

We wait for a time, We wait for our lives
Is the sunrise just a dream we lost?
A Day we left behind?
Still the fire burns inside
But I?ve waited all my life
To believe in what we dreamed before
We are shadow born.
