Life Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Life (9:22)
Music: Stéphan Forté
Lyrics: Kelly Carpenter

Onward weary traveller
Although the hopes you’ve sawn in my garden wither
Each promise of forever, so unkind
Now drink of the memories bitter

It seems you’re climbing a ladder
Just to find your questions unanswered

On and on
Through storms you’re raging
Even though your heart is breaking
Every scar you wear
A lesson that made you stronger

As you watch the curtain fall after the movie ends
Walk, and fear not the dark for it made you stronger

So you’re one year colder
Regrets like lead upon your shoulders
A fool who dreams of wings, when only time can fly
Can’t see innocence is over

On and on
Through storms you’re raging
Even though your heart is breaking
Every scar you wear
A lesson that made you stronger

As you watch the curtain fall after the movie ends
Walk, and fear not the dark for it made you (stronger)
As you recover from the wounds and all the tears you’ve shed
Take heart, give thanks and believe

It seems you’re climbing a ladder
Just to find your questions unanswered

On and on
Through storms you’re raging
Even though your heart is breaking
Every scar you wear
A lesson that made you stronger

As you watch the curtain fall after the movie ends
Walk, and fear not the dark for it made you (stronger)
As you recover from the wounds and all the tears you’ve shed
Take heart, give thanks and believe
2. The Ladder (6:39)
I shouldn’t have trusted
Those tales they’ve been telling
Those ancient rumors were false
Now I’m in the dark
Obsessed by tomorrow
I’m feeling lonely, so lost

Don’t look back to the past
Pain moves on
Time will keep moving fast
So climb the ladder

Now you just need to believe
The stars are not so far
The dream is just a step away
Follow the truth within and run
To shed those tears away
The stars are not so far, so high
Nightmares will someday fade away
Follow the dream within

Remember those arrows
Deep inside the core of your mind
Betrayal, treachery, this is over

Don’t look back to the past
Pain moves on
Time will keep moving fast
So climb the ladder

Now you just need to believe
The stars are not so far
The dream is just a step away
Follow the truth within and run
To shed those tears away
The stars are not so far, so high
Nightmares will someday fade away
Follow the dream within
3. Subrahmanya (6:55)
Feel my shadow on your wretched soul
The un-creator, maker of war
I will soon be marching on your ashes, cold
Heed my final warning

I unholy fire
Bringer of dreamless sleep
Call the bodies down like rain, silence every twisting tongue
And when - our dance is over, I’ll grind your bones to dust
Blood and shame soak the land I tame as I teach the world to fear my name

Subrahmanya
From the land of the dead,
Your end awaits
Unleash the hounds of war
(Conquer and desecrate)
Subrahmanya
Mighty lord of Suras
I decimate
And only lust for more

Footfalls echo into my domain
Your prideful anger, I'll soon rip away
As I taste your anguish and devour your cries
With the hand of darkness, rain death from the skies

I unholy fire
Bringer of dreamless sleep
Call the bodies down like rain, silence every twisting tongue
And when - our dance is over, I’ll grind your bones to dust
Blood and shame soak the land I tame as I teach the world to fear my name

Subrahmanya
From the land of the dead,
Your end awaits
Unleash the hounds of war
(Conquer and desecrate)
Subrahmanya
Mighty lord of Suras
I decimate
And only lust for more
4. The Grand Spirit Voyage (6:10)
Above the waves of swirling marble plains
Floating, soaring
As symbols pour upon a crystal shore
Shining, blinding

Drifting forever into the never
Swept into always been

Flowing, knowing and showing
Invoking the light within
Bending, ascending, transcending
The shell that was me

Whispering rhymes are rippling through time
Singing, weaving
The evermore beyond the puzzle door
Waiting

Drifting forever into the never
Swept into always been

Flowing, knowing and showing
Invoking the light within
Bending. ascending. transcending
The shell that was me

Drifting forever into the never
Swept into...

Flowing, knowing and showing
Invoking the light within
Bending, ascending, transcending
The shell that was me
5. Darkness Machine (5:42)
I am the mighty death machine men has created
The subhuman clone that you will bow before
Evil 2.0 secretly generated
Technological death intelligence

Nox machina servus
Gloria Noctem belli

Holographic disturbance taking hold of the media
Chaos allegory black divinity
The sound of machineguns spitting fire throughout the city
Mecha wartanks stalk and terminate

Darkness
Is falling over
The era of the machines
Is now upon us

Anti matter drones circling high up in the sky
Lurking cyborgs checking identity
The rise of the machine finally realized
Cryogenic state awaits humanity

Darkness
Is falling over
The era of the machines
Is now upon us
6. I'll Possess You (5:47)
Hold my breath as I capture your perfume
Tracing a line down your spine
Bid farewell to your lost soul in silence
Now grieve for your innocence

I’m craving for
The fragile beauty of your curves
Your purest thoughts
Are brading the whip you will serve

I have yearned for centuries to own you
Bleeding on and feeding on, and burning in love evermore
Sore, these dark skies together
Endlessly enslaved to me you’re mine

While my hands are gripping your hair tight
Pleasure beads are dripping down your thighs
Bleeding nicely with the red of your blood
I’ll honor you in, this exquisite flood

I’m craving for
The fragile beauty of your curves
Your purest thoughts
Are brading the whip you will serve

I have yearned for centuries to own you
Bleeding on and feeding on, and burning in love evermore
Sore, these dark skies together
Endlessly enslaved to me you’re mine
7. Secluded Within Myself (5:52)
This scream in my head
So frightening and cruel
Haunts me again
The darkness is real
It's wearing a veil
I’m locked within myself

I, no longer know
The reasons why
My spirit’s so
Hollow

I, no longer feel
Safe within myself
Allow me to let

As if the sky was dead
There’s no light
No love
No life around
And I cry
About my past, my youth, my solitude

I fall, I stumble over
I can no longer face my mind

Don’t you speak to me now
Tour words are so cold
I know, I won’t survive
This is, the last dance, for me

The curtains have closed
I bid you farewell, farewell

As if the sky was dead
There’s no light
No love
No life around
And I cry
About my past, my youth, my solitude

I fall, I stumble over
I can no longer face my mind
8. Trippin' Away (6:06)
Washing away my sorrow was not an easy thing
My feelings were gone, dead, and insecure...
I would never have guessed on that night
Behind those doors, a smile
Would lift my heart so high

And I see you, cheering angel, smiling at me
And I feel that, our eyes could dance, endlessly

Two months have passed, another door, taking you in...
We're now alone, in silence, on the floor
Our lips are joining each other, sealing our hearts forever
Trippin away, deep, in a lava lamp

And I need you, to hold my hand until the end
And I want you, to bem my one, forevermore

What if we could fall together
Touching the stars, trippin' into space
While we're kissing the sky
I don’t want no other but you
To hold my hand til’ the end

And I miss you, when you’re away, half of me is gone
And I love you, our rings are sealed, come what may

What if we could fall together
Touching the stars, trippin' into space
While we’re kissing the sky
I don’t want no other but you
To hold my hand til' the end
9. Torn (4:37)
Lost in the dark I wonder on
Forgetting hope never knowing light
Like a broken melody, I’ll find no home
This never ending night

I’m calling, just crawling
Howling in desperation
But I’ll pretend
As I descend through pain and fear

Promise me a bright tomorrow
Show me that my heart’s not hollow
Cover my eyes whisper sweet lies
Help me twist the words ‘til the truth dies
Promise me a bright tomorrow
Tell me that my heart’s not hollow
Can’t you hear my cries?
I’m trapped within this never ending night

Tell me why I must go ever on
So many tears fill the underground
Why won’t you lift me up ?
Been here so long
Or will I be left to drown ?

I’m calling, just crawling
Howling in desperation
But I’ll pretend
As I descend through pain and fear

Promise me a bright tomorrow
Show me that my heart’s not hollow
Cover my eyes, whisper sweet lies
Help me twist the words ‘til the truth dies
Promise me a bright tomorrow
Tell me that my heart’s not hollow
Can’t you hear my cries?
I’m trapped within this never ending night
