Lyric "Rhymes of Goodbye"

I've come from far from chains
From metal and stone
From makeshift designs
And seeking a star

To grab for the truth
To keep myself warm
I turn and it's gone
You smile and it's born

The rhymes of a woman's
A river that never ends
The Rhymes of Dimension
Surrounds us with fire and friends
And roaring through darkness
The Night children fly
I still hear them singing the rhymes of goodbye

There's nothing within
But within says a voice
That's still my Empire
And I've got a choice

Its healers of death
It's still got a fire
And I keep it burning
With hands of desire

The bells of our senses
Can cost us our pride
Can toll out the boundaries
That level our lives

Can slash like the sunlight
Through shadows and cracks
Our nakedness calling
Our nakedness back

The rhyme of our passions
Find beauty in loving love
The rhyme of our madness
Burn cities and push'n'shoves
And roaring through darkness
The Night children fly
I still hear them singing the rhymes of goodbye
