about

Someone once told me that when a lion is taken out of its natural habitat and placed into captivity that for the first while you can still see the spark of wildness in its eyes. However, the longer the lion remained in captivity, that spark would begin to fade and everything that made him a lion would gradually drift away. I found this a deeply saddening picture and it was this that the song From The Ashes was founded upon.

lyrics

Like the dimming glow in a lion’s eyes
Whose enclosure holds his captive soul in torment
So the fire cools within my heart
The embers drift on with the wind
I lie dormant

My soul faints
Flames fade away
The light grows dim
Dark awaits me

If the desert won’t retain its heat
The evening surely brings the cold I temper
The icy world has taken toll
The morning dew is frosted through as December

I will rise from the ashes on the ground
And I won’t let these demons in and get me down
