The deep inner workings of a beggar's mind

Red Dawn

Morning breaks (A red dawn)

The earth shakes (Lines are drawn)

My heart aches (I’m just a pawn)

The shadow fakes (The light’s not on)

Raise your fists up to the sky

We’re storming the strongholds tonight

Fight your way through the dark abyss

I never knew it would come to this

Morning breaks (A red dawn)

The earth shakes (Lines are drawn)

My heart aches (I’m just a pawn)

The shadow fakes (The light’s not on)

Raise your banners into the dead space

We’re staring death straight in the face

Fight to keep your resolve alive

I need righteousness to survive

Morning breaks (A red dawn)

The earth shakes (Lines are drawn)

My heart aches (I’m just a pawn)

The shadow fakes (The light’s not on)

Raise your voice in protest to atrocity

We’re always surrounded by ferocity

Fight as valiant comrades fall beside

I need strength to persist in this unforgiving tide

Morning breaks (A red dawn)

The earth shakes (Lines are drawn)

My heart aches (I’m just a pawn)

The shadow fakes (The light’s not on)

Raise your face to the morning sun

We’re still alive, the battle’s far from done

Fight until my dying day

I need Your life inside to say:

Morning breaks (A red dawn)

The earth shakes (Lines are drawn)

My heart aches (I’m not a pawn)

The shadow fakes (The light’s coming on)

    Wow…

    We do need to fight to stay strong in this world. So many people are falling away because it’s difficult to stand up for what’s right. :(
