Hokuto looks to current times with strenght and inspiration
The Phoenix (1994)
See the lights go down,
See the night that comes,
See the end that starts,
Feel the darkness in your heart.
Ice is fire in your mouth,
close your eyes and dream about.
Sadness and tears from your eyes,
The sound of light breaks the time, the sorrow time
The sun is red in the sky, because you don’t want to die.
Make your voice to break the air, and your steps won’t be fair.
I want the sun to rise again,
I want the flames to burn the rain.
I want to throw the black away,
To see the colors of the world, on which we stay.
