lyrics

To find love in a nervous hour
Bloodshot eyes pursue avenues of old money, new profit.
Even in florescent light, a subtle flame illuminates the blood of ancient veins.

And I listen.
And I fall away.
And I hear that

Trumpet golden hum,
Gabriel voice of the sun sings,
"Be no longer afraid of the darkest day."

To find love in a lonely hour,
When God, she seems to vanish from all books and all places,
I wonder if that three letter word is just a symbol for all colors, all faces,
All miracles and also for nothing at all.

And I listen.
And I fall away.
And I hear that

Trumpet golden hum,
Gabriel voice of the sun sings,
"Be no longer afraid of the darkest day."

Those who twist the loving tongue of any written lord
And fall asleep on the wheel of the round
I pray that they may cool their conquest down
And listen to the call that's all around

Trumpet golden hum,
Gabriel, voice of the sun, sings,
"Be no longer afraid of the darkest day.
