Illumination Theory: Paradoxe de la Lumière Noire/Live, Die, Kill/The Embracing Circle/The Pursuit of Truth/Surrender, Trust & Passion Lyrics

Consider this question
Look deep inside
Deliver a true confession
What are you willing to live for?

Consider this question
Open your eyes
Examine your own reflection
What are you willing to die for?

When your back's against the wall
And the times uncertain
Consider this question
No standing by
When flesh and blood are threatened
What are you willing to kill for?

We seek to understand
We cry with head in hand

The bridges we build to connect
The distance that makes us forget
Hate dividing us, love reminding us
Of our shared humanity

Hope can be a shadow fleeting
I would rather die believing
Chancing it all in a final act of faith

We seek to understand
We cry with head in hand

A story that needs to be told
An answer that begs to found
The beauty we wish to behold
Is never too far away Mothers for their children
Husbands for their wives
Martyrs for the kingdom
Fighting for your life

A soldier for his country
A junkie for the high
Teachers for their students
Vengeance for a crime

Rebels for their freedom
A tyrant for the praise
Cowards for salvation
Money, love, and fame

Noble and brave
Lay down our lives for the cause
Death over shame
Grace before glory

To really feel the joy in life (feel the joy in life)
You must suffer through the pain (through the pain)
When you surrender to the light (to the light)
You can face the darkest days (face the darkest days)

If you open up your eyes (open up your eyes)
And you put your trust in love (trust in love)
On those cold and endless nights (endless nights)
You will never be alone (never be alone)

Passion glows within your heart (glows within your heart)
Like a furnace burning bright (burning bright)
Until you struggle through the dark (struggle through the dark)
You'll never know that you're alive
Never know
Never know
You'll never know
Never know
Never know
Never know
Never know
