This God Is Dead – Seven Spires Lyrics

Pt 1: Smoke and Mirrors

[Adrienne Cowan & Roy Khan]
Blindly
Across the sea
Your love
Lit my way through storm and shade
For a thousand years

[Adrienne Cowan & Roy Khan]
Today, and every day
Let me be your light
Let me be your light
Always

[Adrienne Cowan]
Another battle, another day
To face the light and pull away from the embrace
Of the shadows where I survive
The agony reminds me I’m alive

[Adrienne Cowan]
Oh mother, I wonder if you knew
Oh father, if only I could speak with you
Did you love my smoke and mirrors?
That would be enough, that would be enough

[Roy Khan]
I know you found it, that dream you chased
Don’t ever think that what you love is a mistake
Despite the demons that rule you mind
Stay the course, everything will be alright

[Roy Khan]
Your mother, she watches over you
My daughter, just know that we are proud of you
From the beyond, you’ll never hear us
But you have our love, you have our love

[Adrienne Cowan, Both]
Can’t afford to die, and can’t afford to lose
Sweet angel, wish I had been enough for you
All I am is smoke and mirrors
Would you love me if you knew?
Could you love me if you knew?

Pt. 2: Mania and Nothing

[Verse 1: Adrienne Cowan]
What happened to me?
I never saw these bones
I wear this skin like someone else’s clothes
These scraps of childhood scenes are (roughly sewn)
There’s no tomorrow
Just a day that started lifetimes ago

[Chorus: Adrienne Cowan]
Back and forth
Mania and nothing
Nothing at all
Back and forth
Mania and nothing
Nothing at all

[Verse 2: Adrienne Cowan]
What happened to me?
Who am I? Who am I?
Everything I’ve been feels like it’s a lie
Food makes me sick and drink makes me fade (makes me fade)
Are these my memories?
Am I even awake?

[Chorus: Adrienne Cowan]
Back and forth
Mania and nothing
Nothing at all
Back and forth
Mania and nothing
Nothing at all

Pt. 3: The Majesty

[Adrienne Cowan]
(Earth, give me strength
Skies, lend your range
Moon, lend your light
Stars, guide my way)

[Spoken Words: Adrienne Cowan]
Bow before the majesty
This loathsome demon reborn
Life with new purpose
See the earth through young eyes
Feel the universe through an ancient soul

Pt. 4: Beneath the Morning Star

[Adrienne Cowan]
I have known all and nothing
I have stared into the void until it haunted my dreams
Screamed and smiled beneath the morning star
And conducted the chorus of grim constellations
Their lights lied, I died a thousand times
Floating frozen past their majesties
I wandered too far into the black

[Adrienne Cowan]
Non est otium
Tibi putesce mari aeterno
Abhorremus te
Non est otium
Tibi putesce mari aeterno
Abhorremus te

[Adrienne Cowan]
Endless nights awake in vain
My imploding brain
Torturing my psyche, there was no escaping myself
My hatred, my failures, my losses, my loathing
There was no hollow peace

[Adrienne Cowan]
This has been my final death, finally accept
All that I am, and all that I’m meant to be
Perhaps eternally

[Adrienne Cowan]
Non est otium
Tibi putesce mari aeterno
Abhorremus te

Pt. 1 Smoke and Mirrors (Reprise)

[Adrienne Cowan, Roy Khan, Both]
Blindly, across the sea
Your love..
Lit your way through storm and shade
For a thousand years

[Adrienne Cowan & Roy Khan]
Today, and every day
I will be your light
Let me be your light
Always

Pt. 5: This God is Dead

[Spoken Words: Adrienne Cowan]
Guide of the lost
Guardian of the broken
Bringer of peace in final hours
Happiness is a choice
And purpose, a charted course
I am but a soul-keeper
And this god is dead
