=Lyrics=
+
<pre>
+
Whose tears on a gaping voice
+
Who's stretching arms match
+
The hunger of mine
+
There lips will they never join
+
But always draw me closer
+
And further entwined
+
With a promise dealer understand
+
All freedoms fade away
+
To a point of view
+
Where many different pathways meet
+
And we're standing on this precipice
+
With nothing much to gain save
+
But the deep blue screams
+
Of falling dreams
+
With our next move
+
Heaven hide your eyes
+
Heaven's eyes will never dry
+
The shades of a thousand steel
+
Come flashing by my face
+
In the fury of war
+
In desolation and abandoned fields
+
The hungry make their stand
+
When they'll stand for no more
+
Hear the passion in their voices
+
See the heaven in their eyes
+
Their hopes and schemes are waiting
+
Dreams of less than paradise
+
And sometimes we make promises
+
We never mean to keep
+
For blackmail is the only deal
+
A promise dealer sees
+
Heaven hide your eyes
+
Heaven's eyes will never dry
+
