Where Nightmares and Dreams Unite Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Sundeath (3:18)
With our hearts stripped of love
With our heads a tangled mess
We are the desperate to come
To haunt and to hunt
By the night falls down,
Searched for something
That we might never find
We the dead - we raise our flags
We the dead - we're the disease
That breaks hearts
Arm us up with the knives
To cut the throat of lights
So we'll immerse in this forever night
With our fingernails bleeding
From crawling in vain
Up the sewer to your backyards
To your bedrooms
To the back of your minds
To your shiny heavens
Made of gold showing us
What seemed to be real
Is already buried untold
As the marrow leaves our bones
As bleeding dry we choke
As we kneel down in thorns
And we lose our focus on hope
Stripped and messed
Abused and depressed
We have nothing left to lose - fuck you
For stealing our days
But we'll rule these nights
And like rats we'll flow
These streets you're so proud to own
We the dead, we raise our flags
We haven't come this far
To give up and turn back
We the dead we raise flags
Bloodthirsty we watch this sun's death
2. The Dead and the Unknown (3:25)
Where have we gone,
Among the faceless masses,
The dead and the unknown
Close and far apart
Torn in between
What's said and what's done

Endless nights and endless fights,
To make our heart's wishes last
To make these beats come to life
To make ourselves feel alive

Where have you gone,
Out of reach for my stretched arms
Out of reach in the land of
The dead and the unknown

Endless fights break heart's
Will these words, breathe life
Into the agony of what
Once meant the world to us

Where have we gone - The dead and the unknown
Where have we gone - Aren't we supposed to want more

Where do I turn,
In the loss of idealistic visions
In the loss of hope
Among the dead and the unknown,
Broken dreams, yet dear to me
Now gather around to watch me bleed,
From thousands of wounds
As the nails shred the skin the flesh the bone

Are we born to lose
The endless wars
Among the dead, among the unknown
Struggling to survive
Alienated but alive
In the land of the guilt
In the home of our sins
We always wish for more
Where do the wages of sin lay
In death or in the freedom of our will?
3. Through the Eyes of the Dead (3:48)
When we both kill
Who's left there to keep sane
And keep hearts in motion amidst emotions
That lift up and tear down
Heal and poison
One out of two is there to die

And I am sworn this cross will be mine
And I walked through
The ashes and I've bled
And now I see ourselves
Through the eyes of the dead

When we both bleed
Who's left there coagulate,
And keep blood streaming
And lungs breathing
And swallow tears down
And throw them up
On this world that is cruel enough
For letting us die

When we both kill
Who's left there to keep sane
When we both bleed
Who's left to coagulate
When we both smile
Who's left there to cry
Who's left there to rise

When we both smile
Who's left there to cry
And keep tears flowing
And our insides aching
For what we have had,
But it was never enough
For us to be content with,
And now we walk hand in hand
With the dead
4. Ruins (4:15)
Drag me down with all you've got
With patterns and dogmas designed
To kill what's still alive
And we're left to march through the buried
Thirsty for status, hungry for symbols
Amidst slogans echoing back in our ears
Telling us to be dead is to be alive
And what more's there to life than keeping out
Functions, and closing our eyes, letting moments slip by,
With our heads bowed, with our hearts buried under
The ruins of our heavens in our minds

I'm not here to save this world,
I'm here to save myself, and set it ablaze
I'm not here to save this world
I'm here to dance in ruins, as heavens and hells collide
I'm not here to save this world,
I'm here to save myself, with my heart bled dry
I'm not here to save this world,
I'm here to dance in the ruins of our heavens made of hopes

As youthful ideals turn,
Into jaded apathy extreme is the path I take
Towards the greater good,
The benefit of the self,
Among lives to be led and lived astray,
Astray in the ruins of our heavens in our hearts,
Ruins-of our heavens made of hopes
Hearts-bled dry and what's left untold
Let it rise!-let it rise!-let it rise!
Nightmare and dreams unite!

I'm not here to save this world,
I'm here to save myself, and set it ablaze
I'm not here to save this world
I'm here to dance in ruins, as heavens and hells collide
I'm not here to save this world,
I'm here to save myself, with my heart bled dry
I'm not here to save this world,
I'm here to dance in the ruins of our heavens made of hopes

Dragged me down with all you had,
And our patterns and dogmas,
Might have killed what was still alive,
And I was bound to march through the buried
Yet among my thirst and my hunger,
And from the ruins of my heavens
I built this wall around-to keep myself alive
I built-this-wall-around-to-keep-my fuckin' self, alive
5. The Martyrs Path (3:21)
Did you ever hear anyone
Calling out your name
Or are you just so busy
Saving the world
That you just choke
Upon your dogmas
And your mindless isms
And the wish to find
Their meanings,
Are ruining your dreams
Leaving you alone

Did you ever see anyone
Reaching out their hand
Or are the visions
Of your martyrdom
Blinding you, as much as your
Senseless labels land upon targets
Who refuse to bear the crosses
Of your selfish wars
Wars you even doubt to wage yourself
Just take everyone down the drain
I'll just keep my beliefs
And faith for myself
Just make everyone
Feel like shit for
Not walking your selfish ways
I'll keep crossing my own paths of life

Did you ever hear anyone
Telling you the little secrets of life
Or are the gunshots of your revolution
Deafening your ears
Efforts to gain
Credibility at any cost
Won't make you look smarter,
But just another hypocrite
Who's the next on in the line,
Keep walking the Martyr's path
Keep thinking you're the only one that's blessed
I'll keep my beliefs my faith, my ways,
And that already made my world change
6. A Culture of Denial (4:33)
Torn between heavens and hells
Being fed with seeds of a half-life
What we silently watch as bystanders
Should be lived instead, to our bests
Should be fought for, till the very end

Where's solace
Where's the peace of souls
In a culture of denial
Through the denial of death
We deny life, We deny our own
All dressed up and good to go to
The funeral march of the buried alive
Will we keep living in denial
Or will we leave our marks?

Torn between rights and wrongs
Being stuck in the valley of death
What we silently assist to
Is the rape of humanity
Is the rape of our lives
The very core of existence
Is stripped down to mere survival

Where's solace
Where's the peace of souls
In a culture of denial
Through the denial of death
We deny life, We deny our own
All dressed up and good to go to
The funeral march of the buried alive
Will we keep living in denial
Or will we leave our marks?

Is the facade worth wearing
Is denial better than swearing
On our lives, On opening our eyes
On leaving our marks, On tearing down our bars

Torn apart - by a culture of denial
Cast aside - by a culture of denial

Torn between life and death
Torn between cursed and blessed
From the dawn of our species
We are destined to create
We are destined to leave
Our marks on humanity
When will we stop denying?
When will we start again?
7. Where Nightmares and Dreams Unite (4:32)
Today is the day
When I have given up
Looking for any reasons
On how my brightest heaven
Turned into my darkest hell
How can poison be this sweet
How can I be left thirsting for
More and more joyful pain
Or did I just say painful joy?
Am I the only one left
To chain smoke my hunger away?
To drink my thoughts away
To be left with nothing but all those
Don't cares and don't knows
That secure our egos deep inside
And we build our walls high
Up from the ground

And this voice is ringing loud
In the back of my head
Let go Let go Let go!

Never care for what has been done
But strive for what is to come
This is where nightmares and dreams unite
This is where nightmares poison our dreams
And there's no happy endings
But the painful joys, and the joyful pains

Unloved loves - Unsaid words - Undone actions

The things we've always wanted
The beliefs for which we'd kill
The flames that ever burned
The dreams we're wanting still
Where have they gone,
Where's our home
In this world that's destined
To burn - To burn - To burn

Nightmares and dreams unite

And I might have given up on reasons
But let this song remain as a middle finger
Of a clenched fist
And the voice of a youth gone wild
Will ring in the back of my head
This is where nightmares and dreams unite
And we are the ones to fight this fight
With no possible end in sight
But the salvation of souls that scream
Where's our dream, Where's our home
But the salvation of souls that won't scream
Let go Let go Let go!
We are the ones to wage this fight
8. All Hopes Abandoned (4:07)
As our dreams are killing
As our hopes are shattered
We lay the blame on ourselves
Wishing for one last deadly kiss
To poison our blood with hopes
That might as well be as dead as we are

What have we left
When everything's out of reach
But the will not to give up
When all worlds collide
What have we left
To deal with ourselves
When giving up is where
We are heading towards

As our dreams are dying
As our hearts are blackened
We lay the blame on everyone
Wishing for one last deadly strike
To clean our blood from desires denied
While we might as well be as dead as they are

All the hopes abandoned
All the dreams shattered
All the"If"s and
All the questions
That never really mattered

All the veins poisoned
All the hearts blackened
All the fears stacked up
That should have never mattered

All the anthems unsung
All the wishes unspoken
All the lies we have told ourselves
That left us scattered

All the loves unloved
All the pain we've felt
All the lies we told each other
That left us suffered

All the crimes we committed
All the dying moments
All the hopeless cries for help
That remained unheard

As in dreams we're crying
As our hopes are dying
As our crimes are binding
As our eyes are burning in tears
Is failure what we've left to embrace
9. Escapist (3:58)
Some are born to wander
Some are born to run
Some are born to oppose
Some are born to hide
Some are born to escape
Some are born to bleed
Some are born to die alone
Some are born to survive

Some are born to give
Some are born to take
Some are born as cowards
Some are born as braves
Some are born to fear
Some are born to sacrifice
Some are born to suffer
Some are born to realize

Are we running from or towards our dreams?
Are we trying to dare whatever it may take?

To dare whatever it may take
To draw an honest breath
To rebuild the ruins of our lives
To ask the questions that's been
Longing for the answers
Longing for the answers
Deep within our hearts
To tell the answers that's been
Waiting to be asked for
Waiting to be asked for
Deep within our minds

Some are born to break the chains
Some are born to live in cage
Some are born to run in vain
Some are born to escape the shame
But where does shame lay
And who do we lay the blame on
If we escape from being burned
What really just defines

Who we are
What we are
And how we fight

Who we are
What we are
And how we lead our lives
