You called my name in the dark, called me back to the start 
The condensation is building tension
 Stubborn silence is formed, around our bodies it's warm
The cool wet grasses as summer passes
 Frightened under attack, fallen flat on my back
Arms and legs, I'm too scared to beg
Harm me most when it's light, thought of you don't sit right 
I need the darkness a desperate embrace

 Razing cities to dust, faces dripping in lust
 Fallen empires and raging bush fires 
All your words unfounded, secret lives bound in bed
 Living backwards and tangled back words  Ruined everything right, so good can't see the light 
From my cave I can see the wave, fallen empires and raging bush fires 

We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light 
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light 
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light,
We are the light, we are the light, 
We are the light, we are the light,

We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
We are the light, we are the light (run to the fire)
