Yūgen Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Solace (10:40)
A mist enshrouds my body
Insulating self illusions
A sudden disconnect
From willful ignorance
I wander aimlessly
Under grey skies
Submerging into
My most inner laments

The sight of blood overwhelms me
Seeping from my hands to the dirt
Ideals are vanishing before me
Into a void far out of reach
Becoming self aware
Regretting everything
Dysphoria overtakes me
Regression spirals

In solace, I dream infinitely

Landscapes dissolve around me
Merging into a shrine of loss
Frailness becomes apparent
Collapsing under weight
Celestial signs appear
Moonlight illuminating
The deepest depths
Of the grieving world I left behind

In solace, I dream infinitely
Of the grieving world I left behind
In shame, dreams become waste
Carve my epitaph here
2. Oceans Apart (5:05)
Lying alone on the shore
Beaten, bruised, and exhausted
Solemnly waiting in silence
Etching your name in the sand

As radiant as the sun
I can feel you
From many oceans away
Drifting further

I’ve waited so long
For just one moment
I’ve waited so long
To see you again

And I’ll wait forever

The waters rise
Grains of sand bind
The oceans become
Crystal clear

Lying alone on the shore
Disoriented and ashamed
I saw a light
It wasn’t you
3. Lakeside Meditation (7:09)
Here again
I couldn’t bear to see
Another souvenir

Empty and vast
This is it
The place I imagined

I can feel a spiritual presence
So faint but somehow familiar
The wind caresses me gently
The scent of spring reawakens

I am left here
To contemplate my place
To determine my role
In this infinite vastness

Still…

Silence in the distance
No shelter for miles
Stillness lingers
Beyond my senses

No, I no longer feel bound

“Follow”
The waters beckon again
Horizons blur

“Behold”
Spirits reside here
My feet ascend
4. In Remembrance (6:23)
Standing here alone with you
In an unfamiliar place
Souls intertwined
Every part of me exposed

I never walked barefooted
I never searched for answers
I never forged my own path
I never sought a meaning

It always seemed the same, the earth could never be tamed
I couldn’t wash it away, the shame is here to stay
I hate the thought of your voice, in every possible way
Because I can’t remember what it sounds like

Clinging to fading images
In remembrance of you

I watched the light fade from your eyes
Like the sun becoming sand
I watched you draw your last breath
In harmony with the morning breeze

I watched the life fade from your eyes
I stood breathless
As you drew your last breath
I witnessed your departure

Standing here alone with you
In an unfamiliar place
Souls intertwined…

...In remembrance of you
5. Celestial Infancy (8:40)
Mind and body are one
Body and earth are one
Earth and sky are one
Sky and spirit are one

Here I stand at the threshold of existence
Falling deeper into my subconscious
Despite the loneliness I felt
It seems a distant memory now

I close my eyes and I can see
The birth of stars and their constellations
I can feel the energy surging
From the sun into my veins

“Dreamer, I can still feel your presence”

I became emotion
I became serenity
I can sense eternity
In my own reality

I became peace
I became chaos
And for the first time
I felt balance

Faller, did you feel the weight of the world?
Because I watched it all collapse
I stand before the earth
Unafraid and unashamed

Mind and body are one
Body and earth are one
Earth and sky are one
Sky and spirit are one
6. Yūgen (6:43)
Lying alone on the shore
Beaten, bruised, and exhausted
Solemnly waiting in silence
Etching your name in the sand

As radiant as the sun
I can feel you
From many oceans away
Drifting further

I’ve waited so long
For just one moment
I’ve waited so long
To see you again

And I’ll wait forever

The waters rise
Grains of sand bind
The oceans become
Crystal clear

Lying alone on the shore
Disoriented and ashamed
I saw a light
It wasn’t you
7. Omen (2:47)
Instrumental
8. Glowing Embers, Dying Fire (8:30)
I had never felt so helpless
Watching my decay
The scars were hidden too long
And could never be healed
I had never felt so lonesome
Yearning for a connection
Searching for a reaction
Raising my voice with no resonance

But then the shadows dissolved
I felt the gentle caress of the rain
All matter merged into one
I found myself in the universe
I watched life and death intertwine
And vanish before me
I became the fabric of light
And I embraced the world

Bleeding into one
Fading endlessly
Merging with the earth
I see clearly now
Colors I never imagined
Rivers becoming oceans
Sky reflecting landscapes
Continents drifting together

This is absolution
I see clearly now
It’s all so surreal
Become one

In union, we dream infinitely
