Retrograde Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Sk-68 (1:40)
Walk with me tonight
Walk with me tonight
To find what's after life
2. Are You Coming with Me? (3:49)
We know now that in the early years of the twentieth century,
This world was being watched closely by intelligences
Greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own

Did I find the blood inside my bones
Reaching out into the great unknown?
What a life, what a fucked up love we hold
Polarized by what we can't control

We have the chance to realize
Are we the stars, or just the sky?
We have the chance to find our eyes
So are you coming with me?

I'll go, whoa, hey hey hey
I'll go, whoa, hey hey hey

When you find the dust behind the sun
You're alive, but so misunderstood

We're so afraid to change our minds
Are we the shark or just the prize
No I'm not afraid to open wide
So are you coming with me?

I'll go, whoa, hey hey hey
I'll go, whoa

Climb the sky or cauterize (or cauterize)
Golden eyes are better blind (are better blind)

I don't know what I'm meant to see, meant to see
So I'll just hold my breath, and wait for gravity

We don't know what we're meant to see, meant to see
So we'll just hold our breath
We don't know what we're meant to see, meant to see
So we'll just hold our breath

So we'll just hold our breath

Now are you coming with me?

I'll go, whoa (I'll go)
I'll go, whoa

Climb the sky or cauterize, or cauterize
Golden eyes are better blind, are better blind

I'll go, I'll go, I'll go
Hey hey hey
I'll go, I'll go, I'll go
Now are you coming with me?

With me
3. Zero (3:02)
I’m breaking static, I’m changing my frequency
If I don’t speak out, then no one’s listening
But I won’t live in vain, in vain

We stand on the edge wondering, wondering
If I take one step will I live, will I sink?
We’re dying for more every day, every day
So count down from ten and jump when I say
Zero, zero

We’re breaking static, just radio frequencies
If we don’t speak out, then there’s no one listening
Is anyone listening to me?

We stand on the edge wondering, wondering
If I take one step will I live, will I sink?
We’re dying for more every day, every day
So count down from ten and jump when I say...

We won’t hesitate
We won’t close our eyes
We won’t turn away
We’re taking back our lives
We won’t hesitate
We won’t close our eyes
We won’t turn away
We’re taking back our lives for the first time
For the first time
(We won’t hesitate
We won’t close our eyes
We won’t turn away)

We stand on the edge wondering, wondering
If I take one step will I live, will I sink?
We’re dying for more every day, every day
So count down from ten and jump when I say
Zero, zero, zero, zero
4. Aftermath (3:50)
There's nothing I can't face
So open the flood gates
No fear of what's to come
I'm not going under
Not running for cover
Standing against the sun

After the fire, after the flames
Nothing will feel the same
My scars are closing, my heart is open
I am not afraid

I'm ready to breathe again
I'm beginning to catch my breath
I'm ready to dream again
Surviving what left me for dead
I had to bleed to lose
Find myself to prove
I could feel love without end
I'm all that I have
I am the aftermath

Show it no mercy
'Cause you cannot hurt me
No more will I bite my tongue
Tired of worthless fighting with purpose
No longer will I stay numb

After the fire, after the flames
Nothing will feel the same
My scars are closing, my heart is open
I am not afraid

I'm ready to breathe again
I'm beginning to catch my breath
I'm ready to dream again
Surviving what left me for dead
I had to bleed to lose
Find myself to prove
I could feel love without end
I'm all that I have
I am the aftermath

Break my bones, you will see
You can't kill me, you can't kill me!
Break my bones, you will see
You can't kill me, you can't kill me!

You can't kill me!

I'm ready to breathe again
I'm beginning to catch my breath
I'm ready to dream again
Surviving what left me for dead
I had to bleed to lose
Find myself to prove
I could feel love without end

I'm all that I have
I'm all that I have
I'm all that I have
I am the aftermath!
I am the aftermath!
(Aftermath)

Break my bones, you will see
You can't kill me, you can't kill me!
Break my bones, you will see
You can't kill me, you can't kill me!
5. Hologram (3:45)
Through your eyes I fight for gravity
A place to stand, and a place to breathe

When the walls begin to shake
In the home you thought you knew
Will you run? Will you stay? Will you choose?

Do you know who I am?
I’m so afraid you’ll never understand
There’s a part of me still lost out there
And I just want to know
Yeah, I just want to know
Am I becoming a hologram?

Close your eyes from the darker side of things
A shade of grey hidden under sheets

When the walls begin to shake
In the home you thought you knew
Will you run? Will you stay? Will you choose?

Do you know who I am?
I’m so afraid you’ll never understand
There’s a part of me still lost out there
And I just want to know
Yeah, I just want to know
Am I becoming a hologram?
Now I think I’m worried that I’m in too deep
Like a phantom that you’ll never see
So I just want to know
Yeah I just want to know
Am I a part of the hologram?

You have seen this incident based on sworn testimony.
Can you prove that it didn't happen?
Perhaps on your way home someone will pass you in the dark,
and you will never know it, for they will be from outer space

Shadowed in time, another road redefined, redefined
Shadowed in time, another road redefined, redefined
Redefined

Do you know who I am?
I’m so afraid you’ll never understand
There’s a part of me still lost out there
And I just want to know
Yeah, I just want to know
Am I becoming a hologram?
Now I think I’m worried that I’m in too deep
Like a phantom that you’ll never see
So I just want to know
Yeah I just want to know
Am I a part of the hologram?

Shadowed in time, another road redefined, redefined
Shadowed in time, another road redefined, redefined
6. The Fear Is Real (3:24)
If you open the door, time and space will follow you home
If you open the door, time and space will follow you home
7. Lucky Us (3:43)
Are you hanging on my words tonight?
Don't you get it? Don't you get it?
Hold your breath and everything's just fine
Don't you get it?

Forgotten we could be alone if we waste away, waste away
If there's a love that brings us home, it drowned today

We smile and grind our teeth away
Good luck forgot to call our names
Good god
Lucky us, lucky us, lucky us

No one's hanging on our words tonight
Don't you get it? Don't you get it?
You can try, but you won't change their minds
Don't forget it

Burned in the sun
Afraid of what you'll become
You'll pay the price when you're free, you'll see
Tell me who you want to be
Tell me what you want to see

We smile and grind our teeth away
Good luck forgot to call our names
Good god
Tortured, but no one leads the way
Force-fed like rats inside a maze
Good god
Lucky us, lucky us, lucky us

Are you hanging on my words tonight?
Don't you get it? Don't you get it?
Hold your breath and everything's just fine
Don't you get it? Don't you get it?

We smile and grind our teeth away
Good luck forgot to call our names
Good god
Tortured, but no one leads the way
Force-fed like rats inside a maze
Good god
Lucky us, lucky us, lucky us
Lucky us, lucky us, lucky us
8. Weight of the World (3:27)
You've been doing what you like
Thinking that you're always right
You can hold your breath,
'Cause I won't hold mine

You wouldn't care if it killed me
Misunderstood when you're guilty
No you can bite your tongue
'Cause I won't bite mine

It's all so complicated
The way we're built to break it
I think it's overrated
I'm sick, I'm sick
I'm sick of the weight of the world

I'm so so sick
I'm so so sick

Now you think you've won this time
Thinking life was yours to buy
But you should wonder why
You can't sleep at night

You wouldn't care if it killed me
Misunderstood when you're guilty
No you can bite your tongue
'Cause I won't bite mine
This time

It's all so complicated
The way we're built to break it
I think it's overrated
I'm sick, I'm sick
I'm sick of the weight of the world
Don't need your validation
Your drawn out dedication
I think it's overrated
I'm sick, I'm sick
I'm sick of the weight of the world

I'm so so sick
I'm so so sick
I'm so so sick
I'm so sick

It's all so complicated
The way we're built to break it
I think it's overrated
I'm sick, I'm sick
I'm sick of the weight of the world
Don't need your validation
Your drawn out dedication
I think it's overrated
I'm sick, I'm sick
I'm sick of the weight of the world

I'm so so sick
I'm so so sick
I'm so so sick
I'm so sick
9. Signs of Life (3:54)
I fill these bones with hollow promises
I can feel the world outside under my skin
And all these walls are slowly caving in
I would climb if I could find my way again

It feels so close, yet so far gone
It feels so close, but still

I'm looking for a sign of life behind the sky
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
A sign of life to redefine
Is anybody there?
Cause I just need a sign of life

(A sign of life)

Can I go on, lost without a trace?
Am I afraid to hold the light and lead the way?
I may be wrong, another face without a name
But I'm alive and I can see I'm not the same

It feels so close, yet so far gone
It feels so close, but still

I'm looking for a sign of life behind the sky
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
A sign of life to redefine
Is anybody there?
I'm fighting for a sign of life

(I'm fighting for a sign of life)

I'm looking for a way out, cause I'm way out and I'm on my own
I'm looking for a way out, cause I'm way out and I'm on my own
I'm looking for a way out, cause I'm way out and I'm on my own
I'm looking for a way out, cause I'm way out

I'm looking for a sign of life behind our eyes
Is anybody there? Does anybody care?

A sign of life to redefine
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
A sign of life behind our eyes
Is anybody there?
I'm fighting for a sign of life

(A sign, a sign)
(A sign, a sign)
10. Oxygen (4:09)
The chemicals
I think they're telling us we're not alone
The molecules
They're taking shape until we let them go

Breathe you in, breathe you out
When it's all too much
Breathe you in, breathe you out
You're my one true drug

I can hardly wait to float above the angels
I'm high again off your oxygen
Calling in the dark, you pull me through the stars
I'm so high again off your oxygen

There's something changing inside the way I see
The air I thought that I needed is just a memory
So captivated inside a world we dream

Breathe you in, breathe you out
When it's all too much
Breathe you in, breathe you out
You're my one true drug

I can hardly wait to float above the angels
I'm high again off your oxygen
Calling in the dark, you pull me through the stars
I'm so high again

The chemicals
I think they're telling us we're not alone
The chemicals
I think they're telling us we're not alone

I can hardly wait to float above the angels
I'm high again off your oxygen
Calling in the dark, you pull me through the stars
I'm so high again off your oxygen
11. Kaleidoscope (3:28)
Say hello to the night
Let order and chaos fill your eyes
Brave the fear in your mind
Walk into the afterlight

Afterlight [x4]

The colors fly like gold in my hands
With open eyes, I'm starting again
Before you go, I think you should know
The world is your kaleidoscope

Break the sequence of hate
There's nowhere but up to go, so follow close
And you'll see the dawn of an age
Where pillars have turned to stone, and martyrs pave the way

The colors fly like gold in my hands
With open eyes, I'm starting again
Before you go, I think you should know
The world is your kaleidoscope

The colors fly like gold in my hands
With open eyes, I'm starting again
Before you go, I think you should know
The world is your kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope

Afterlight [x4]

Say hello to the night
Let order and chaos fill your eyes
