Dead Can Dance — Advent lyrics

In the hour of darkness
when our worlds collide
assailed by madness
that has plagued our lives,

On the point of departure
on the eve of despair
the recourse to reason
seems to make no sense at all!

Refrain:

The light of hope
shines in your eyes.
Dementia has gone
purged from inside.

Throughout our wand'rings
in a land of lies
we fell from God's grace
into a sea of storms.

In the self-relevation
celebration of love
these bold four virtues
we seem to've left behind.

Refrain
Refrain

Lay bare your heart
induce the will of love
to restore what little faith
that you may have lost.

As morning brings re-birth
a new day will dawn
to ease our troubled minds.

Turn away on your side
and dream of days to come...
