Phoenix

Cover me in darkness
Torture me with pain
From the edge of madness
That's where hope will reign.
 
Standing on the razor's edge
Wolves howl with all their might
Walk the path in blindness
Guide me, inner light
 
Come on you greedy demons
Try to take my soul away
When you've left me nothing else
There's nothing in my way
 
Nothing left to hurt me
Nothing left to lose
My eyes can see more clearly
Now I'm free to choose
 
I've walked the cleansing fire
I felt the painful stings
From underneath the ashes
I smile and spread my wings
