Take this silver lining
Keep it in your own
 Sweet head
And shine it when the night is
 Burning red
 Shine it in the twilight  Shine it on the cold, cold ground  Shine it till these walls
Come tumbling down

We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope now
Can you tell me why
Time after time they drag you down
Down in the darkest deep
 Fools and their madness all around 
Know that the light don't sleep 

Step into the silence 
Take it in your own
Two hands 
And scatter it like diamonds 
All across these lands  Blaze it in the morning 
Got to wear it like an iron skin
Only things worth living for
 Innocence and magic, amen

We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope now
Can you tell me why
Time after time they drag you down
Down in the darkest deep
 Fools and their madness all around 
Know that the light don't sleep 
Know that the light don't sleep
