MIDNIGHT ICON

VERS 1
THE HEAVY, OPPRESSIVE SILENCE OF A CHURCH, MY CHURCH,
AND THE COLD LIGHT FROM THE CANDLES CONSUMED BY HUNGRY,
FORGOTTEN SAINTS HAVE WOVEN A BIZARRE PATTERN
INTO THIS FABRIC OF RELIGION.
THE DARKNESS, ONCE SEVERE AND THREATING,
HAS BEEN ALTERED BY MY HEIGHTENED PERCEPTION.
IT IS THE MEDIUM OF DISPLAY FOR THE MIDNIGHT ICON


CHORUS:
THE ICONS OF MIDNIGHT ARE TWINKLING STARS
AND A MOON OF SILVERY-GOLD
ALL TRUTH IS ILLUSION AND FANTASY FACT
IF YOU BELIEVE ALL THAT YOU FIRST BEHOLD

VERS 2
ANTICS OF MIDNIGHT BROUGHT YOU NEW HOPE
THEY WOVE YOUR DREAMS WITH BRIGHT THREAD
WHEN THE DEPARTURE OF HORROR'S DELIGHT
LEFT YOU ALONE IN YOUR BED

CHORUS
THE ICONS OF MIDNIGHT ARE TWINKLING STARS
AND A MOON OF SILVERY-GOLD
ALL TRUTH IS ILLUSION AND FANTASY FACT
IF YOU BELIEVE ALL THAT YOU FIRST BEHOLD


VERS 3

A DREAM'S A MOMENT LASTING ALL NIGHT
THAT RIDDLES YOUR DAYTIME WITH THOUGHT
YOU LIVED IT SO CLEARLY AND BORE IT UNTIL
ITS MESSAGE SEEMED ALMOST FORGOT
PATTERNS EMERGE IN BRAND-NEW IDEAS
FILLING YOUR MIND WITH EACH SCENE
MARY'S SMILE SHOWS MICHAEL'S FACE
GENTLE AND SERENE


CHORUS
THE ICONS OF MIDNIGHT ARE TWINKLING STARS
AND A MOON OF SILVERY-GOLD
ALL TRUTH IS ILLUSION AND FANTASY FACT
IF YOU BELIEVE ALL THAT YOU FIRST BEHOLD
