[Intro]
I'm floating in the clouds, I'm giving up the fight.
A voice is calling out, I'm walking into light!

[Verse 1]
We used to race a thousand miles a day so fast,
Feet they barely even touched the ground.
We used to fly to places out beyond our own little world,
The fury and the sound.
I saw it flicker like a television set,
Bright flashes of a warning sign.
Flipping channels in a world gone static,
Eroding away line by the fading line.

[Pre-Chorus]
Under water for years we found, till we started to swim than drown,
The current takes us, now we're walking into the light.

[Chorus]
Are you dying all your life? (walking into the light, walking into the light)
Broken, beat and tired out (walking into the light)
You want to live but don't know how (walking into the light).
Diagnosis: sudden life (walking into the light, walking into the light)
Can no one revive me now?
Feels like I'm walking into the light.

[Verse 2]
Woke up floating on a wave of golden sound,
Tunnel vision and a great beyond.
Heart beating like a rhythm slowing down,
And it's gone, an echo of a song.
Flat line and a closing bell,
Whisper a warm farewell.
The flames are beckoning,
As we're walking into the light.

[Chorus]
Are you dying all your life? (walking into the light, walking into the light)
Broken, beat and tired out (walking into the light)
You want to live but don't know how (walking into the light).
Diagnosis: sudden life (walking into the light, walking into the light)
Can no one revive me now?
Feels like I'm walking into the light.

[Hook]
Don't suppose that you know the way,
Don't suppose that you care.
I see lights up ahead and hear choirs of angels ring in my ears.
But you know that, had you a choice,
You would go back and do it again.
We all have unfinished business to tend.

[Bridge]
So no I won't go gentle, into the good night.
You can keep your candle ,I'm walking away from the light.
Yeah, I'm walking away from the light,
I'm walking away from the light,
I'm walking away from the light,
I'm walking away from the light.

[Outro]
Diagnosis: sudden life (walking away from the light, walking away from the light)
I woke up my heart racing, I'm (walking away from the light)
At a loss explaining why (walking away from the light)
Are you dying all your life? (walking away from the light, walking away from the light)
Then put your darkest days behind,
Let life flash right before your eyes (walking away from the light).
And for very the first time,
It feels like I'm walking away from the light.
