A Distant Light Was Shining

This song is by The Old Dead Tree and appears on the album The Water Fields (2007).

A distant light was shining
For all these years
My life was pretty dark
I had to live with my fears

All this time it helped me to hold on
But it's becoming useless
So I should let it down

Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away
Take that mask off your face, are your eyes made of clay?
Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away
Stop lying to yourself, you won't face it today

I finally broke down the walls of my prison
Constantly exhausted for no good reason
But I won't complain or open my veins
A better life's waiting, where I'm now going!

Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away
Take that mask off your face, are your eyes made of clay?
Take it off, burn it all, take the pain away
Stop lying to yourself, you won't face it today

I never thought it could become obsolete so fast
This decision was hard to take, but I made it at last
I know it took me so long
I wasn't strong enough
I know it took me so long
To what life do I belong?

You've never felt this taste
It is much less sweet than the rest
But you cannot define it

It fills your mouth and your mind
It makes you feel like you're going blind
You can't get rid of it by spitting

I finally broke down the walls of my prison
Constantly exhausted for no good reason
But I won't complain or open my veins
A better life's waiting, where I'm now going!
