Let Us Rise!

We're ghosts of darker people
Those who once walked this Earth
The ones that bled their sorrows
We replace them through a curse

For somewhere in the darkness
A light shines bright and pure
Something that we can never reach
Of that, we can be sure

But still we strive towards it
Through deaths and scars and pain
For that's all that we can feel
That's all we need to gain

We meant nothing by it
We are good, you hear?
But, for the actions life has taken
We remain in fear

And for some unknown cause
We lie awake at night
And know our place after death
We know our place in life

It is no one's fault but fate itself
It is all to quench our thirst
For life has taken its course
And we shall pay through curse

It's not the most fulfilling
A life where loss is free
But at least we know, deep inside
That it's all for a greater thing

For not in this life, but one to come
We'll be welcomed into that light
For finally our time is done
And we'll receive love so bright
