lyrics

DARK STAIRS

One by one we’re going down those dark stairs
One by one we’re going down
Step by step descending to the bottom
Where terror bars the door

One by one we’re going down those dark stairs
One by one we’re going down
Step by step descending deeper than before
Reaching for that latch to throw wide that door
We may find we’re feeling terror
Like nothing we felt before

One by one we’re going down those dark stairs
One by one we’re going down
Call upon those brave souls
Those brave souls gone before

O beseech, o beseech them
To teach our fledgling souls to soar
O beseech, o beseech them
To teach our fledgling souls to soar

One by one we’re going down those dark stairs
One by one we’re going down
Step by step descending deeper than before
Reaching for that latch to throw wide that door
Soul wheel away bravely
And into the flock soar
Soul wheel away bravely
And into the flock soar
