lyrics

SON OF THE MORNING (TOKEN DEVIL BALLAD)

JUST BEFORE THE SUNRISE
THE STAR WAS CLIMBING HIGH
TO BUILD HIS THRONE
WHERE NONE HAD FLOWN
ABOVE THE SPARKLE OF THE SKY

THEY’D ASSEMBLED ALL AROUND HIM
IN THE NIGHT BEFORE HIS FLIGHT
HE DID RESEMBLE
THE ALMIGHTY
AND THEY TREMBLED WITH DELIGHT

REPENT OR BE FOREVER CONDEMNED
THE SON OF THE MORNING
WAS GIVEN HIS WARNING
INTENT ON HIS UNHOLY ASCENT
ALL IN THE NAME OF GLORY

A THIRD OF ALL THE ANGELS
PRAISING THEIR NEW KING
BEGAN TO SING
AND BEAT THEIR WINGS
RINGING THE GLEAMING BELLS OF FREEDOM

THE ALMIGHTY HEARD THE WORDS
AND LEARNED THE JOURNEY HAD BEGUN
HE CHANNELED ALL HIS HOLY FURY
INTO THE RED AND RIPENING SUN

HE BURNED THE WINGS OF THE DECEIVER
WITH A BRILLIANT BLAZING BEAM
THEN TURNED IT ON THE DISBELIEVERS
CHANGED THEIR SINGING INTO SCREAMS

THERE WAS A CRY THROUGHOUT CREATION
HOW THEY WEPT AND HOW THEY MOURNED
WHEN SENT TO BURN
THEIR HALOS SHORN
THE MORNING EVIL WAS BORN

AND IT’S BEEN SO LONG FOR THAT OLD FALLEN ANGEL
HE WAS BANISHED AND ESTRANGED
HE WAS CAST INTO THE FLAMES
