I have had many a broken wing
fell many a time from the skies
I have crawled until I healed
and then I have soared again

I have crossed the barrier between life and death
I have seen the lies of life
I have seen the truths of the hereafter
I have tasted the fruits of hell and heaven
I have descended, I have ascended again

I have seen many things you have not
I still have a lot to see that maybe you have
but I will always follow that dream
to be the phoenix that soars

I will burn again, die again
I will rise from the ashes
I will soar again
My eyes, even when I was blind
always saw the truth in this:
I will soar again
