lyrics

The wicked world defeats me
I’m bloody from the fight
Broken from the battle
And longing for the night

I see the souls around me
What burdens we do bear
The folly of our fathers
All of us now share

I lay my broken spirit at her feet
Praying that her touch can heal complete
We lay our broken world in her arms
Pray that she can shield us from all harm
In the arms of the Empress
The arms of the Empress
The arms of the Empress

Shattered spirits, crippled world
Weeping on the wind
Sundered hearts, mangled land
Where could we begin?

Can the barren ever grow
Can she light a darkened soul
Will the sundered pieces fit
Will there be an end to it

I lay my broken spirit at her feet
Praying that her touch can heal complete
We lay our broken world in her arms
Pray that she can shield us from all harm
In the arms of the Empress
The arms of the Empress
The arms of the Empress

In the growing darkness
A glowing spark burns bright
Not enough to break the shadows
But enough to cast some light
In the falling ashes
A tender leaf is growing
Not enough to hide the damage
But enough to keep us going
