Among the Ruins Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Rizalgrinder
1. The Offering (5:18)
The high tide is approaching
The signs are clear
Do not stare into the sun
Let it all fade away

Another look around
The sands of time are running out
But where to hide?

Take this offering of peace
A chance for quiet rest

Awareness will end
Descending into deeper
Depths of oblivion
Now everything is lost

The signs are clear
Can't take it anymore
Eternal slumber
A place in the sun
Now forget
2. Sledge of Stones (5:19)
Enduring the distance
Leaving behind trodden sand
Overwhelming burden weighs
Compass point has been lost again

Tell me how to find direction
A path to better future
Doing nothing but a heavy duty
I got to get rid of this sledge of stones

Blue thoughts devour the day
Miserable and lacking consistency
Actions speak louder than words
Roaming through a quagmire
And always aiming headwind

Tell me how to find direction
A path to better future
Doing nothing but a heavy duty
I got to get rid of this sledge of stones
3. No Return (8:25)
Down to the core
Of dazzling sights
A world under the spell
That hinders perspective

It matters not
One's got to seek the easy path
Sweet ignorance
It's bliss to live in denial

As the torch is lit
One has to choose what to believe in
All these tales of unknown truths
They shine forevermore

Act without thinking
Follow an illusion
Through a cloud of lies
Inhaling dishonesty
Impaired vision, at the
Point of no return
Face the facts
And settle the score

Don't you want to see the truth?
Closed eyes and misguided feelings
Adhering words that resonate
It's better not to show emotion

Discard questions and prepare for
Outcome which may not please
Maybe one day you'll find that
The system avoids honesty

It just doesn't matter
Always a bliss to live in denial
Plainly follow the illusion
Proceed and repeat
4. New Dawn (5:57)
Welcome to the end of days
As the tables are turned
Better to possess an open mind
And look for a shelter

The bombs are pouring down
From the blackened sky above
Bloodhounds howling in the rain
A new dawn that purged heresy

You've reached the end of the line
Open up a new chapter, stop believing
Salvation won't reach you
Just forget the past

The bombs are pouring down
From the blackened sky above
Bloodhounds howling in the rain
A new dawn that purged heresy

Moving along
The path of devastation
After having reached the crossroads
Of a new dawn
5. Absence of Light (7:11)
For hardships there is defiance
And, when it all will end
Placed out of sequence
Matters that are twisted and bent

Through a whirl of doubts
Waiting for the curtain to fall
Patience for being still reflects
The absence of light

A whirl of doubts
Out of sequence
The absence of light
The path to extinction
6. Advocates of Deception (7:17)
Death and greed
Tighten up a web of lies
Always wanting to feed the fire
Acting along without exception
Casting the dice
You're in for the kill
And doing as you're told

When will they fail?
Reveal their true existence
Bent, twisted and frail
Advocating deception

Playing by the book
And ripping up the unaware
The struggle mounts
Words are written on silk paper
Into the madhouse
The greed has to overflow
Suppression is the key

When will they fail?
Reveal their true existence
Bent, twisted and frail
Advocating deception
7. Among the Ruins (9:46)
Among the ruins
Beneath the barren ground
Charred, forgotten
Placed in oblivion

Do not look behind
Toward those ghastly sights
When wisdom was overruled
The way of confusion
A path to the sun

A single flare
Ignited vicious circle
Violent outburst
On an unprecedented scale

It's better not to look behind
Words have no meaning

Providing a reason is useless
Devastation can not be undone
