Lyrics:Bernie Taupin
Before today this body bore the burden of his kind
The quest to learn why I was made, the endless search for signs
Through all my rage and tender stages, through decades drenched in blood
The source of our existence came between the ones I loved
The __ spring of our live is me, a power beyond belief
She feeds me understanding and overwhelming sense of peace
From what I've learned I've come to terms with bonds of brotherhood
I'm seeing clearly now when I never thought I could
I'll never make another, to satisfy desire
Blame God for family only orchestrates the fire
I know to slave the innocent is wrong
And from the dead this new awakening comes
chorus:
And from the dead I feel the strength I've never known
A thrill that fills my heart helping me to stand alone
And from the dead their ancient eyes watch over me
It seems from death this tortured heart is finally free

And from the dead there comes a healing and a hope
Like music on the wind, the perfect pitching of a note
And from the dead the cold pale moon begins to bleed
It seems from death I sense this night was made for me
I only take what's evil to satiate my thirst
Prey on those who murder, I'll only drain the worst
I know to slay the innocent is wrong
And from the dead this new awakening comes
(repeat chorus)
It seems from death I sense this night was made for me
