The Waking Hour Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Penance (1:31)
2. Under the Sun (4:58)
Another day looking for food that I could not find
There's nothing to hold on but desperate cry, promises from hypocrites
Thirsty again, starving I see something you can't hide
Waiting for answers I cannot control while politicians smile again

Under the Sun I can feel the pain burning inside my veins
What's my sin? There is no escape, no rain again
Under the sun looking to the sky, you don't seem to care about us
Have you abandoned us today?
Under the sun...

Another day dying like soldiers. Is this a war?
Living like animals. We want more!
I can barely walk. I'm starting to collapse, there's nothing for me!

Under the sun I can feel the pain burning inside my veins
What's my sin? There is no escape, no rain again
Under the sun looking to the sky, you don't seem to care about us
Have you abandoned us?

One more day, mothers and babies will die today
Death is a blessing in this world full of pain
My eyes are dried, there is no more tears
Silence is all I hear!

Under the sun I can feel the pain burning inside my veins
What's my sin? There is no escape, no rain again
Under the sun looking to the sky, you don't seem to care about us
Have you abandoned us again? Are we insane to die in vain?
3. Broken Bridges (4:33)
Night falls, stars begin to show me
All the different ways I could. I'm not sure I should
Bridges built between the ages
Led me to believe I should. I know I could

See around their faces
I hear the voices asking me to please their needs

Every dawn is like a curse
Every dream seems like a nightmare in my soul
Every day we go across the same broken bridges
Before we reach the shore

Night falls, dark starts to master
Shadows I cannot defeat, I'm not sure I could
Bridges built between the ages
Led me to believe I would. I'm not sure I should

See around their faces
I hear the voices asking me: "Just let me in!"

Every dawn is like a curse
Every dream seems like a nightmare in my soul
Every day we go across the same broken bridges
Before we reach the shore
I just want to survive another day!!!

Actor fakes, the painter cut his own ear
Singers scream and shout their memories out!!!

See around their faces
I hear the voices, they are teasing me. "Just let me be!"

Every dawn is like a curse
Every dream seems like a nightmare in my soul
Every day we go across the same broken bridges
Before we reach the end
Before it gets too late please set me free!!!
4. The Waking Hour (4:38)
What is this now? Are we back in “64”?
We've been pushed over the edge for too long

We are rising
We are raising our heads up
Ready to stand up against the law!

You think you pull the strings
Stealing my pride, stealing my hope
Give back to me what you stole

What is this now? Why still living in 1964?
We are taking back the pride you took from us!

You think you pull the strings
Stealing my pride, stealing my hope
Give back to me what you stole

Before the sun goes down
You’ll find the rage is a matter of time
We’ll keep on marching out
You cannot hide yourself.
It’s the waking hour!!!

You can’t force to me surrender
You can’t tell me what to do
I've got news to tell you, things are going to change
We are taking back to country you took from us

Before the sun goes down
You’ll find the rage is a matter of time
We’ll keep on marching out
You cannot hide yourself
It’s our waking hour!!!
5. Hunger and Shame (4:14)
The time has come and he’s leaving all behind
Everyone has their own cross to bear
The truth shows its face before him
There’s nothing left to regret

So he goes with fear in his eyes and heart full of lies
Searching for something he’ll never know
Through death and despair, through hunger and shame
Makes the man weaker day after day

In the cold of the night he sleeps on the floor again
Pretending to be a king in his own bed
The face of the world reveals itself
There is no pride left within

There he goes with fear in his eyes and sorrow inside
Searching for something he’ll never know
Through hunger and pain, through death and despair
Makes the man weaker ...

“Thy will is hard and hurt.” And his is broken.

There he goes with fear in his eyes and sorrow inside
Searching for something he’ll never know
He’s down on this knees, he’s begging you please
But he’s weaker and don’t ...
Now he shows defeating his eyes
He’s lost deep inside
Searching for something he’ll never know
Though hunger and shame bring death and despair
It killed the boy within made him strong
Now he’s ready to go! Go...
6. Melted in Charisma (4:53)
All that you need to know is the lies they sell on the news
Crime and disorder showed, is it alright?
Even the man who shows his face
Melted in his charisma
"It's brand new day for us"

Change the world, don't let it changes you
You better watch out because we are no fools anymore!

Don't you think it's much more than entertaining
They keep laughing at our faces again

Change the world, don't let it changes you
You better watch out because we are not fools anymore
Go and run because we are here!

Stop! You don't deserve our blood, you had enough!
Run and hide because we all know where you'll be!

You better watch out because we are not fools anymore
Go and run because we are here!
7. Childhood (6:37)
Look at this faded photograph
Memories of who I used to be
There was a time for you and me, yeah

"Let's build a castle in the sand"
Let's fight the waves
Don't let them wash away the dreams of those who dare

Every scar shows how strong we are
We're still breathing here
Love is nothing more than a word
If you just say it, so just give in

Surrender to your child within
Go play around, follow all your dreams
Don't you apologize, believe in yourself
Surrender to your child within
Go play around, follow all your dreams
Don't you apologize, believe in yourself
Shout it out loud!

Look at this floor beneath your feet
Memories from where I used to live
There was a time for you and me, yeah

Every scar shows how weak we are
We're still breathing here
Love is nothing more than a word
If you just shout it, so just give in

Surrender to your child within
Go play around, follow all your dreams
Do not apologize, believe in yourself
Surrender to your child within
Go play around, follow all your dreams
Don't you apologize, believe in your dreams
Shout it out loud.

A superhero, maybe a doctor, saving lives, helping each other
Travels around the world alone in a boat
Build a castle but not in the sand
Raise your voices and sing a melody
Find the truth that is inside your dreams
Keep going on, don't you let go, just let go!
Say it out loud, just look around
You'll understand when you have more past.

Surrender to your child within
Go play around, follow all your dreams
Don't you apologize, believe in yourself
Surrender to your child within
Go play around, follow all your dreams
Do not apologize, believe in your dreams
Shout it out loud.
8. Your Smile (3:40)
My eyes reflect my smile
But hearing you crying wakes my deepest fears
There's a new path, a one way down this road

The joy of holding you
Lifts me away from the sorrow of this world

And your presence brings such grace to this world
And in your presence I feel peace

Now you hold all the keys to build a brand new world
Nothing seems real, nothing's concealed
Just by the way you smile

When you fall my world falls apart
Every step that you take makes me proud
All the dreams that you dare to dream I make them my own

And your presence brings such grace to this world
And in your presence I feel peace

Now you hold all the keys to build a brand new world
Nothing seems real, nothing's concealed
Just by the way you smile

Show me your smile...
I'll be there for you...
I'll take care of you...
I'll walk with you...

(Dedicated to Laura Sena)
9. Exile (3:56)
Destiny brought death to me
Now the black bird comes to take my life
Suddenly I'm feeling so alone
Now the darkness embraces my soul
The coldness reached within my blood

The end is near
There is a shadow surrounding me
All the dreams I've lived
I have no reasons to regret
Even now the end seems like nothing
But one more step
To be free from all my sins
And all those bad things I have done

Sorry for those lines
I wrote (them) before that day
The promises I won't keep
Please forgive me
Because tomorrow I'll be gone
10. New Revolution (5:13)
Fear and confusion led to panic once again
The government collapsed, there are no more rules
We're walking blind in shadows all alone
We're refugees in our own home

We're ready to stand up and fight our enemies
We're not afraid of what may come today

Revolution calls screaming to the heard
No glory come from defeat

Revolution is in your mind
New solutions in your heart
Revolution starts with you
A new revolution!

The cowards shoot to kill and they don't give a damn
You will remember them when they all die

Revolution calls screaming to the heard
No glory come from defeat

Revolution is in your mind
New solutions in your heart
Revolution starts with you
It starts when you decide
A new revolution!
11. Winding Road (5:21)
When the waves wash away the signs on the sand
A helping hand is all I need but nobody cares

Still hang on though the storm stays strong
Leave the cold outside
We feel alone and share our tears again
People change, they rise again just to live another day
...And still we remain...

Misery is everywhere just look around and understand
But nobody cares
The winding road you choose to go
It makes no difference in this world
You're in the maze on your own

Still hang on though the storm stays strong
Leave the cold outside
We feel alone and share our tears again
People change, they rise again just to live another... way!!!

Waves crash revealing the man that lives inside
Starts may fall, just look around and you may find
Where I go and how do I find?
The path that leads me where I need to be
Here I stand with nothing to hide
And even though I choose to hide my tears
The winding road... the winding road..
