Everlasting Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. My Doom (5:11)
As I walked through this deathly quiet place
A tomb for every heart's disgrace
The chains lie silent on the stones
Walls are built out of skulls and bones

In obscurity I've lost my track
Between helplessness and shades of black
Too tight to move - too dark to see
Without a light to guide me

Is this where I meet my doom?

[Chorus:]
If all hope is gone - I accept my fate
I lay my head on this broken slate
When I'm dead - assign me a place
Pile my bones and rest my soul
In this empty space

I took the wrong turn
And followed the forbidden path
To a place I should not be
A place of hatred and wrath

With every step I move forward (forward)
It takes me two steps back
With every breath that I take (I take)
The sling gets tighter around my neck

[Chorus:]
If all hope is gone - I accept my fate
I lay my head on this broken slate
When I'm dead - assign me a place
Pile my bones and rest my soul
In this empty space

Is this where I meet my doom?
My cold infernal tomb?
Desperate cries without a sound
The only way out is the way deep down

[Andy Posdziech solo]

With every step I move forward (forward)
It takes me two steps back
With every breath that I take (I take)
The sling gets tighter around my neck

Is this where I meet my doom?

[Chorus:]
If all hope is gone - I accept my fate
I lay my head on this broken slate (on this broken slate)
When I'm dead - assign me a place
Pile my bones and rest my soul (rest my soul)
In this empty space
2. Endurance (4:45)
This is who we are and this is where we stay

We are strong, we are determined but not free of mistakes
Our life is the hardest lesson – it teaches us to resist
Still proud, still honest – our greatest gift

[Pre-chorus:]
Every day is another crusade – we defend it with all we've got
Eye for an eye – armed to the teeth – blood for blood

[Chorus:]
We have to go straight until we fall – we take it the hard way
There's no need to change tomorrow if we can change today

This is who we are and this is where we stay

We've got to take our life back – one chance to make it right
Hold your hands beside the flame – breathe in and keep it alive

[Pre-chorus:]
Every day is another crusade – we defend it with all we've got
Eye for an eye – armed to the teeth – blood for blood

[Chorus:]
We have to go straight until we fall – we take it the hard way
There's no need to change tomorrow if we can change today

Obliterate – what makes us weak
Full speed ahead – salvation is what we seek
What's done is done – let the past be the past
Arise and take each moment as if it's the last

Trust – when no one believes
Live when you're almost dead
Breathe – to stop drowning
Don't trust those lies they told you

[Chorus:]
We have to go straight until we fall – we take it the hard way
There's no need to change tomorrow if we can change today
We can change today
3. Levels (3:49)
A one way ticket to reality – destination unknown
A death trip to infinity or a journey back home
Is this really happening or only in my head
Free fall in slow motion – maybe, we're already death

Should we drift apart?
Or swim against the tide
Just one simple choice to make
What is wrong and what is right

[Chorus:]
We're all playing the same game
Just in different levels
We're all suffering the same hell
Just with different devils
Small gearwheels in a big machine
Of sadness and sorrow
Fed with desperation and
Iron tubes to swallow

Narcotics running through our veins
To keep us calm, to numb the pain
Unreal stories implanted to our minds
An artificial coma – false truth real lies

Should we drift apart?
Or swim against the tide
Just one simple choice to make
What is wrong and what is right

Stories – lie hidden in the sands of time
We look up to the sky for one single sign
Motionless on the ground
As with a broken spine
Waiting for someone to stop our decline

[Chorus:]
We're all playing the same game
Just in different levels
We're all suffering the same hell
Just with different devils
Small gearwheels in a big machine
Of sadness and sorrow
Fed with desperation and
Iron tubes to swallow

We don't know what we want
We don't know what we get
Two pills on the table
One is blue, one is red
4. Coward King (3:52)
Breathless you reach for your crown
Beyond burns everything you've ever known
Just a poor man is all that's left
A scorched portrait is your bequest

Your tormented soul the demons shall keep
Onto parchment are composed your guilt and greed
The dust of decades underneath your feet
Your spirit still yearns still seek

[Chorus:]
You had everything and you've lost it all
The highest flight it is the deepest fall
Can't you hear the darkness calls?

The tide that rises is the tide that falls

Coward king
Your fortress walls have failed
Coward king
Your whine will be to no avail
Coward king
The kingdom stands ablaze
Your numbered days have turned blue to grey
Coward king
Your fortress walls have failed
Coward king
Your whine will be to no avail
Coward king
Can't you hear the darkness calls?
The tide that rises is the tide that falls

Breathless you reach for your crown
Beyond burns everything you've ever known
Just a poor man is all that's left
A scorched portrait is your bequest

You had everything
You had everything
Can't you hear the darkness calls?

[Chorus:]
You had everything and you've lost it all
The highest flight it is the deepest fall
Can't you hear the darkness calls?
5. Mask of Lies (4:09)
Visit me just one time – one time with your true face
Impress the strangers so you like smoke and mirrors
Decorate your facade to get what you need
They will let you down – regardless

[Chorus:]
No mask of lies can hide the truth
No mask of lies will carry you

Reflect yourself just one time and look deep in your eyes
Is it worth it? All the victims? All the lies?

What will save you now?
Don't judge a book by its cover
What will keep you alive?
Blunt knife on throats of each other
Don't rely on anyone – you are dealing with demons
With closed eyes – nothing on mind – but your own beauty-treatment

[Chorus:]
No mask of lies can hide the truth
No mask of lies will carry you
No mask of lies can hide the truth
The mask of lies will bury you

What will save you now?
What will keep you alive?
Reflect yourself just one time and take a look deep in your eyes

This is the world you have created
Your own world of loveliness and hatred
This is the world you have created
Your own world of loveliness and hatred
This is the world you have created (you have created)
Your own world of loveliness and hatred

[Chorus:]
No mask of lies can hide the truth
No mask of lies will carry you
No mask of lies can hide the truth
No mask of lies will carry you
6. Sinner's Kingdom (3:32)
[Chorus (speaking):]
This is the kingdom of the sinners
Ain't no hope for the saints?
We have to fight for what we believe in
We keep going forward never looking back

Finally we have reached the lowest ground
There's nothing more to lose
Another chapter has just begun
There is so much left to prove

We are calm and resolved
Even when the going gets rough
Go hard or go down
Cause enough is enough

The darkness behind us – in deepest black
Keep going forward (forward) and never looking back

[Chorus:]
This is the kingdom of the sinners
Ain't no hope for the saints?
We have to fight for what we believe in
We keep going forward – never looking back

Never looking back
We will never look back

Go hard or go down – is the headline of the game
Forget the old agony – by causing new pain
When the going gets rough – we've gonna get rougher
Through all these year's we've learned how to suffer (how to suffer)

The darkness behind us – in deepest black
Keep going forward (forward) and never looking back

[Chorus:]
This is the kingdom of the sinners
Ain't no hope for the saints?
We have to fight for what we believe in
We keep going forward – never looking back

Never looking back (never looking back)

We have to fight for what we believe in
We keep going forward – never looking back
7. Hold Back the Time (4:44)
Hold back the time
Slowly we belong to yesterday's youth
It's hard to bear the ugly truth
Time waits for nobody and standstill is death
We seize every second like it's our last

Breathe deeply once forget the time
10 years have passed in a blink of an eye
With no chance to escape
We walk the line straight to our graves
Walking the line straight to our graves
The line straight to our graves

[Chorus:]
Try to hold back the time it's running out too fast
All the years that we had are buried in the past
The more it goes the more it takes away
On the path of time we've gone astray

Hold back the time

Time is no healer (time is no healer) – time is a thieve
Nothing lasts forever except our memories (memories)

[Chorus:]
Try to hold back the time it's running out too fast
All the years that we had are buried in the past
The more it goes the more it takes away
On the path of time we've gone astray

No matter how many mountains we have climbed
And burning bridges we have crossed
In the end every moment we had
Was a moment we have lost?

Nothing lasts forever
Old pictures in gilded frames
Lock them deep into your heart
The memories are all that remains
8. Masquerade (3:10)
Masks of iron, dirt and gold
Faces hiding, looks so cold
Gilded with the most precious jewel
Masks to cover, masks to fool

Chandeliers and cloaks of black
Beauty dancing back to back
With ugliness and jealousy
Behind the mask no one can see
No one can see – your fuckin' identity

[Chorus:]
Burning candles on the floor
It feels like you've been here before
Cause every night and every day
It's just another masquerade
Masquerade

Just another masquerade

Tear off your mask
Tear off your skin
And show the world your disgrace

You can't take off your mask
It has become your only face
What will be left – I ask
When we stop the masquerade

When we stop the masquerade

[Chorus:]
Burning candles on the floor
It feels like you've been here before
Cause every night and every day
It's just another masquerade
Masquerade

Just another masquerade

Tear off their mask (tear off their mask)
And if it's still sticking to their face
Tear off their skin (tear off their skin)
And show the world their disgrace

When we stop the masquerade
9. Ignite the Light (3:45)
Ignite the light

In the light of a candle – that gently gleams
Digging through the cullets – of my broken dreams
I pick them up to put them back together
To start something better
But life has other plans for me

[Chorus:]
At the end of the tunnel
I can see the light
There is still a little something left
Inside me to ignite

I look out of dead eyes – to the naked floor
Searching the room – but can't find a door
Give it up – don't resist – down on your knees
The chokehold I'm in makes it hard to breathe

It's so hard to breathe

No way outside – away from here
My last hope disappears

[Chorus:]
At the end of the tunnel
I can see the light
There is still a little something left
Inside me to ignite

Fight fire with fire turn darkness into light
There's still a little something left
Inside me to ignite

Against the flood I'm standing tall
Tear down the ruins before they fall
A rain of fire and bursting flames
Ashes and smoke are what remains

Against the flood I'm standing tall
Tear down the ruins before they fall (before they fall)
A rain of fire and bursting flames
Ashes and smoke are what remains
…are what remains
10. Farewell (4:35)
[Chorus:]
This is our farewell – the pain we've caused remains unspoken
A sanctuary for the heartless – a heartless home for the broken

The eternal night comes down and covers us from within
The city lights go black at the sight of your pale skin
Nothing's around, except the will to comprehend
This is where it started and this is where it ends

[Pre-chorus:]
Can't you hear my heart – it beats for you
Through all the time – it beats for you
It beats for two

[Chorus:]
This is our farewell – the pain we've caused remains unspoken
A sanctuary for the heartless – a heartless home for the broken

We tried so hard – but we have failed
We have exceeded the line – and stayed jailed
Memories of a forgotten past guide us through
The best of me is the worst of you

[Pre-chorus:]
Can't you hear my heart – it beats for you
Through all the time – it beats for you
It beats for two

[Chorus:]
This is our farewell – the pain we've caused remains unspoken
A sanctuary for the heartless – a heartless home for the broken

The further we went on our path together
The further we have grown apart forever
11. Arise (4:09)
[feat. Matthew K. Heafy]

This is our legacy, your heritage
Our life, blood and promises
We are an iron unity
With bloody shields
Against the same enemy
This is our legacy, your heritage
Our life, blood and promises

[Chorus:]
Out of the ashes we will rise
Like a phoenix on its first flight
This is the chance to build new life
We'll make history tonight

Your eyes are the window to our souls
Open them wide and lead us to our hidden wounds
To stop the rain, to melt the clouds
Heal it from the inside out

[Matthew K. Heafy]
Against all odds we stand tall
No one can hurt us nothing at all

Now it's the time to fight and strife
Get rid of the mess inside
Abandoned souls to purify
We carry on until we die

[Chorus:]
Out of the ashes we will rise
Like a phoenix on its first flight
This is the chance to build new life
We'll make history tonight

Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!

Now it's the time to fight and strife
Get rid of the mess inside
Abandoned souls to purify
We carry on until we die
12. The Bitter Man (5:04)
[Chorus:]
I am alone (I am alone)
This bitter man that I've become
Hold my breath – laid to rest
Drown in my tears there's nothing left of me
I am alone
The angry man upon his throne
I can't pretend – the great descent
Take my hand until the end

You see me on the horizon
I am the air you breathe
I sold my soul to the seven seas

Condemned and lost
Pulled off course
I will never leave – I'm always yours

[Pre-chorus:]
Each time I stand ashore
With sand between my toes
I remember and I know

[Chorus:]
I am alone (I am alone)
This bitter man that I've become
Hold my breath – laid to rest
Drown in my tears – there's nothing left of me
I am alone
The angry man upon his throne
I can't pretend – the great descent
Take my hand until the end

The water will wash away my pain and sorrows
A stranger in the night who blindly follows – who follows
This is the path I choose and this is the place I die
When heaven rests itself upon the earth
I'm one step closer to the sky

To the one I loved – now lost
To the one I sheltered from the rain that turned to frost
To the sunken feeling when I saw your face
I will perish in never ending disgrace

You are the sea – I am the shore
I will never leave – I'm always yours

[Pre-chorus:]
Each time I stand ashore
With sand between my toes
I remember and I know

[Chorus:]
I am alone (I am alone)
This bitter man that I've become
Hold my breath – laid to rest
Drown in my tears – there's nothing left of me
I am alone
The angry man upon his throne
I can't pretend – the great descent
Take my hand until the end

There is a world inside me
It lives, it hurts – it barely breathes
I cast my heart into the sea
If it means it brings you closer to me
