Creatures Watching Over the Dead Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. My Eyes (4:30)
I close my eyes soon asleep I will find myself
At the door where dreams are waiting for me
To realize a wish, a compromise my mind has in store
A friend I had before I was here

A whisper close behind
Familiar voice reminds
With every moving thought
A chance that we have sought

You're in my dreams at night
Turn into the light
From my past you see me
In a singular reality

Focusing my eyes into you, into you
Only now, only here
Only thoughts remain true

Face the past the ghost in the glass
Standing at my door patiently waiting for
That second chance, one more passing glance
In time the mind is near and the thoughts disappear

With every moving thought
A chance that we have sought

You're in my dreams at night
Turn into the light
From my past you see me
In a singular reality

Focusing my eyes into you, into you
Only now, only here
Only thoughts remain true
2. The Soulless (4:03)
I see you trapping into this electric world
As your brain melts into glass
Thoughts focusing upon a dark screen of deceit
A life that's paid in full and wallowing in grief

Stepping through the mindless threshold
Now amongst the soulless

When there's no will to control your life anymore
You're just a puppet on a string
For you the willing one, now you have come undone
Wrapped up inside this world and staring at the sun

Stepping through the mindless threshold
Now amongst the soulless

Where are your thoughts your inspiration
Living like a machine no determination
Pre-programmed this life, this is no longer yours
Your mind begs for mercy as your soul ignores

Stepping through the mindless threshold
Now amongst the soulless
3. Afterlife (2:53)
In one hundred years, I'll be gone
What now remains is this song
Will anyone know of my name
The life, the years and all the pain

If nothing else awaits us there
All that we have is forever here
In words or rhyme images of time
What the future holds for all mankind

This is my afterlife
I hope understand
My soul, this song is in your hands
Long after we are dust, surviving though decay

What happens now it matters not
The pain endured, victories sought
The story told, the life remains
Deciding our eternal fate

This is my afterlife
I hope understand
My soul, this song is in your hands
Long after we are dust, surviving though decay
4. As I Catch My Breath (5:03)
I lie with my eyes closed tight
My dreams are nightmares tonight
Beaching into my reality
Squeezing my chest so I can't breathe

Not knowing you can't be real
Feeling what I always feel
Pain comes into me dramatically
Until I wake that's when I see

Rising from the pain
Disappearing from my self again
Wake me when I take
My last breath away

Pain, waking me from my dreams
Pain, nothing is as it seems
Pain, causing me fear at night
An inner war I cannot fight

Hand wrapping around my throat
You're quickly taking control
I'm so helpless you've taken me
Into a world where I can't breathe

Rising from the pain
Disappearing from my self again
Wake me when I take
My last breath away

Pain, waking me from my dreams
Pain, nothing is as it seems
Pain, causing me fear at night
An inner war I cannot fight

As I catch my breath, I awaken to a day unknown
As I catch my breath, I step out from the shadows
As I catch my breath, I am leaving my dreams filled with ghosts
As I catch my breath, my body becomes their host

Rising from the pain
Disappearing from my self again
Wake me when I take
My last breath away

Pain, waking me from my dreams
Pain, nothing is as it seems
Pain, causing me fear at night
An inner war I cannot fight
5. Lies (3:31)
So close one day yet unknown the next
A bond so strong never believed they could test
Brought together by a sound of beasts inside our minds
I thought would remain for all time

Ungrateful they're become right before my eyes
The fire put out by a chemical disguise
Keeping me away and shaping my past
Never will I fall for the dead in the grass

Fading far away
Sounds disappear in the gray

Lies on their tongues I can see
Stealing their will to be free
Twisting their minds desperately
Fighting their control over me

Following the massese into seas of blue and red
Leaving pain where you tread
Filling my ears with the sounds that I dread
Not forgetting the ones who alwats led

Fading far away
Sounds disappear in the gray

Lies on their tongues I can see
Stealing their will to be free
Twisting their minds desperately
Fighting their control over me
6. Reach into the Light (2:39)
Darkness we have left behind
This journey shared so many times
Beneath the waters black and grey
The cold welcomes us here to stay

The smell of emptiness surrounds
The putrid stench of underground
The dead still seek the ones they meet
And keep them in this world so deep

Reach into the light
Open your mind to sight
Reach into the light

Creatures roaming tracks we take
Sacrifice the deal we make
Without you I wll not move
Throughout this abysmal womb

The energy surrounding me
Pieces of my history
Inside of the air we breathe
The sweet release can you believe

Reach into the light
Open your mind to sight
Reach into the light
The darkness that we left behind
7. Tear Me Down (3:50)
A rip in my flesh when the teeth sink in
It's far too late, I don't see you, my friend
Not a matter of if, just a matter of when
You're pulling me down just to feed me again
As the pain of my hunger calls from within
An insane bloodlust, a feast born of mortal sin

Oh, won't you tear me down now?
Oh, can't you break the sound now?

Know it's over and the time is short
No control, this is my last resort
Cutting into myself just to satisfy
Crawling into the dirt, feeding myself to the fire
8. Living in the Shadow of Yesterday (3:36)
Turning back follow a different path
Treading water flowing black
You call to me from a distant shore
But now I'm sinking, I'm no more

Living in the shadow of yesterday, sinking in the deep
Living in the shadow of yesterday, is how you saved me

I chose this life that I now feel
Did it end is all this real
A decision made that day
I couldn't make it all the way

Living in the shadow of yesterday, sinking in the deep
Living in the shadow of yesterday, is how you saved me

Is this me?
The life I lead?
Is this our reality?

Living in the shadow of yesterday, sinking in the deep
Living in the shadow of yesterday, is how you saved me

Save me
9. Time Has Passed (3:16)
Scanning the wasteland for signs of life
Feeling you're constantly left behind
You wonder if you should just leave or stay
Why should you care about them anyway?

Time has passed beyond you now

An empty soul
With no vision or goal
Feeding on time
Feeds on your mind

Burning your eyes
The tears that you cry
One day you'll know
The damage you've done to your soul
