On the way to sacred shores
And in the arms of the life that we adore
Moonlight shows a white design
That’s been waiting for a chance to seize a soul once more

“Sweet lad, o come and join me, do !
Such pretty games I will play with you”

On a road, changing course

Lightning strikes where we depart
An eerie voice as the night embrace the heart
Resonating from the life that is moving on
To new windows of the soul

(Will you, sweet lad, come along with me ?
My daughters shall care for you tenderly)

Hear his mystic voice

(I love you, your comeliness charms me, my boy !
And if you’re not willing, my force I’ll employ)

He feeds on stainless souls

We are stuck in the night
Ancient power will strike
Feel the fire
Now run into his arms
Leave your shelter behind
We are going to fly
Higher than high
We will take on the sky
Feel my senses
United by the night

Now it’s time to close the door
And open up like before
New windows of the soul

The silence of the void
A father’s life destroyed

Stuck in the night
Ancient power will strike
Feel the fire
Burn inside
Run into my arms
Leave your shelter behind
We’re going to fly
See us fly
And hear our cry
We’re out of sight
Higher than high we will
Take on the sky
Feel my senses
Out of my sight
But live on in my mind
New windows of our soul


“This isn’t a typical ballad ; it’s melancholic and has more of a themed vocal going through it than a chorus. I’m a big fan of classic fairy tales and the lyrics were inspired by a dark German tale about the Alder King, or Erlking, who steals children’s souls. A lot of times, parents don’t take their children seriously, especially when it comes to seeing monsters in the closet so it’s a dark twist on fairy tales. It’s symbolic of being stuck in a life without a happy ending and how our innocence is taken away from us as soon as we’re born.” – Simone Simons
