END 
 
Lyrics: 
 
Cold as steel the darkness waits, its hour will come 
A cry of fear for the chosen worshipping the sun 
Mother natures black revenge on those who waste her life 
War babies in the garden of Eden shall turn our ashes to ice 
 
Sunrise is gone, freezing up the fires 
Sunrise is gone, numbing all desires 
Sunrise is gone, Sunrise is gone 
 
Around the world the people stop with terror-sticken eyes 
A shadow cast upon them all to crush them like a fly 
In the icy rain and whiplashed seas there's nowhere left to run 
The hammer blows of winter fall like a hurricane 
 
Sunrise is gone, freezing up the fires 
Sunrise is gone, numbing all desires 
 
Around the world the nations wait 
for some wise words from their leading light 
You know it's not only madmen who listen to fools 
"Is this the end" the millions cried 
clutching their riches as they died 
Those who survive must weather the storm 
 
Gone are the days when man looked down 
They've taken away his sacred crown 
To be so free, it took so long 
It's not the journeys end, it's just begun
