The light in our hearts
Ignite with a candle
Be right from the start
No truth will dismantle
May it last forever

Between both tides, or above the ground
Unite both sides, to create the sound
Let it echo on, through and through
Let it be honest, the voice of the youth
May it last forever

We lift our spirits with liquid sins
Where the harlots dance with wicked men
Depict a world where few have been
And many dream to revisit again
May it last forever

The dark in our hearts
Dim with a candle
Let us speak through the art
No truth we can’t handle
Let it last
Can it last?
May it last forever
