Who Do We Sound Like?
Lyrics
Spirit
 
Such a lonely road to walk
Such a long way to go
Noone keeping step with you
I know
 
Such a rocky path to climb
Such a hellish height to fall
Voices screaming in my mind
Ah
 
Take me home to (are you lost?) the sweet ever after (in this world?)
Take me home to (all alone)  your loving arms (so afraid)
Take me home to (empty eyes)  where we started (have no name)
Take me home to (take my hand) your love (I know the way home)
 
Snapshot
 
It's like a snapshot, dangling from the corner of my mind
Or perhaps a story, that's been told a thousand times
The crying of a newborn babe or an old man's last breath
It's like a snapshot
 
It's like a calm sea or silence after the storm
Like a love story that echoes somewhere in time
It's like the passion of a lover's kiss
It's like a snapshot
 
Oooooooo
Life is like a snapshot or a movie you live one frame at a time
 
Old man's last breath, girl in white dress
Graduation day, the day we first met
Baby cries, long jump, first prize
Christmas morn, the look in her eyes
 
 
Pacis
 
Terra, Aeris, Ignis, Aqua
Elementum muto
 
Pacis, Nove Spiritus
 
Ah
Pecatus, coratio, renovatio
 
Lucis, coratio
Lucis, renovatio
 
Offero tu defendo, spero, lucis
Pacis, semper pacis
Dico acerbus evanesco
Offero novus spiritus
Acerbus evanesco!
 
Invalesco
Pacis, acerbus evanesco!
 
Lucis, una vocis in acerbus
 
Pacis
Pacis Modo
Pacis semper
Pacis
 
*translation to above*
 
Peace
 
Earth, Air, Fire, Water
We are the elements, the elements of change
 
Peace, a new spirit
 
Ah
Reconciliation and renewal
Light, renewal
Light, reconciliation
 
We offer you protection
Hope, light and peace always peace
 
We speak to the darkness and say begone!
We say we offer a new spirit
Darkness begone!
 
Peace in the darkness
Peace, a voice in the darkness
 
Peace
Peace now
Peace always
Peace
