The Prophet - Lyrics

Everyone is silent
The blind prophet speaks of war
He brings word of devastation
Telling how humanity will be no more
He was gazing at the Sun
Until all he saw was red
He kept gazing at the Sun
Until his old eyes bled
Dying when they found him
His scorched skin burning red
He traded his sight for visions
His eyes were black and dead
Now everyone is silent
As he paints the tales of war
and his words of devastation
how death will rule forevermore

Visions brought death and decay
Gazing at the Sun
Violence, starvation and pain
He kept gazing at the Sun

Followed his delusions
Became messengers of death
An insane man's call to arms
They fought till the dying breath
He kept gazing at the Sun every day
All he ever saw was blood
So on his people slay
And keep dying in the mud

Visions brought death and decay
He kept gazing at the Sun
Violence, starvation and pain
Until his old eyes bled

Slaves of a mad man's desire
The prophet who speaks to the Sun

He kept gazing as they died and his eyes bled
He'll be gazing till the day he's dead

The old man's mind is fried
Lies, lies
His sanity gone with his eyes
Lies, lies

Everyone listens
As the prophet speaks of war
He brings word of devastation
Telling how humanity will be no more
He was gazing at the Sun
Until all he saw was red
He kept gazing at the Sun
Until his old eyes were dead
Reborn when they found him
His scorched skin burning red
He traded sanity for visions
His mind was blank and dead
Now everyone is silent
As they buy his tales of war
Empty words of devastation
Death and hate forevermore

Visions brought death and decay
He kept gazing at the Sun
Violence, starvation and pain
Gazing at the Sun

Visions say tomorrow
We'll be nevermore
Silent whispers from the Sun
Doom is at our door
