Deadwood Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Marionette (5:38)
Reaching for the mystery in me,
The one alive but unaware
Of what’s controlling me
The force we cannot see, we cannot flee
In service to an illusion of control
That is just a disguise for the world

A fantasy,
I’m living in a false reality

Can’t scream, cannot wake up
Pushed down and forced to crawl
Bound to fulfil your every command
Can’t fight, cannot rise up
Just cannot make it stop
I am the marionette

A life enslaved, a soul in chains
A million tries to break the strings
That for so long have held me tight
The time has come for one more fight
Against the power that you wield
Over my every move

I cannot hide
You are the eyes tearing through my helpless mind

Can’t scream, cannot wake up
Pushed down and forced to crawl
Bound to fulfil your every command
I’ll fight I will rise up
To somehow make it stop
To kill the marionette

Feel the tension on the strings
That jerk my limbs, that pull my thoughts
Pull me, shape me, set my sight
I'll fight you, I'll beat you
I want my control back
Your commands will mean nothing to me
As I pull myself away

I scream, I’m waking up
My fingers climb the wall
My form obeys my every command
I stand, I’m rising up
Your voice chokes to a stop
I slew the marionette
2. Wither (5:01)
Time is all you had and it’s fading
Mourning for the loss of memory
And do you recognise me when you're dreaming?
Close your eyes and see me
For mine are reddened and streaming
For the time that's flown

Hold my hand and feel the moments we stood
By each other, silent, side by side
And we laughed and swore we'd never forget these
Memories we were sharing
As I'm watching you wither,
Now I know they're gone

Why don't you remember my face?
Why don't you remember all our years together
When you held me near?

As you're drifting onwards to the sunset,
I don't want to have to watch you die
And I say goodbye to you
As you lay there, knowing now that
I was fading out of your mind's eye,
I died long ago
3. Ubasute (5:41)
Whispering hair
As grey as the mountain
Only a burden in time of need
Carry me there
A future less in doubt with
One less mouth to feed

Remember me
In the way you see
When you return alone
A path of leaves
Between the trees
To find your way back home

There was a time
I carried you inside me
This is the night you carry me
I spread my arms wide
To clear a path behind me
To pull the leaves from the trees

Remember me
In the way you see
When you return alone
A path of leaves
Between the trees
To find your way back home

Don't look behind
Don't stay here waiting
Don't regret what you had to do
The stars are aligned
The moonlight is fading
I've cleared the way for you

Remember me
In the way you see
When you return alone
A path of leaves
Between the trees
To find your way back home
4. Season of Regret (6:10)
A sigh
A tear
A wake for another passing year
The chance that I threw away
In search of the perfect words to say

All the things I can't forget
From a past that's always set
The season of regret
Have we reached it yet?

My end
My start
The images are burned into my heart
The voices of those I passed by
Still speak to me no matter where I hide

I can only look behind
All the shadows of the mind
That's all that you will find
With my path still blind

Don't look for me
Just ignore me
Broken by the time

Don't speak to me
Just look through me
Burning in a hell that's truly mine

Falling to my knees I pray
Shut me down, take me away from me

I burn my eyes, my sight destroyed
The images I can't avoid I see

These wounds
These scars
A prison with the past in place of bars
The pain returns to me yet
Eternal is my season of regret
5. Little Girl Lost (9:11)
Night falls once again, chills the fear in her soul
An endless forest so lost, so cold
Home, a reverie lost inside her mind

Those fading memories let her feel alive

Fate had made her stay away
Rage and anger made her stray
Pleads to mother in tearful cries
Fading memories were her only guide

"Mother, father, take me home!"
She pleads into the dark all alone
"Hold me tight, in this night"
Not an echo responds
Alone and starving
Why do they not search for her?

Lost for so long
She won't belong
Would they still cry
If she died?

She tries to escape,
But doesn't know her fate
Just a phantom with no memory
Of the night she died
6. Shackled (4:58)
Waking frozen, bonded still
A living dream I can't depart
I'm only looking into me
The places that my thoughts can dart
Should I lie in wait until
I scream and pull myself apart?
A hundred eyes that I can't see
That locked the iron around my heart

A shattered shell of broken dreams
Stripped and bleeding on the floor
Wounds that never will wash clean
A rusted dagger through my core
Chains of iron hold my being
To face whatever is in store
The pain and anguish I have seen
The rope still hanging from the door

I am the weight that holds you down
Silence you without a sound
Your mouth is solid, frozen still
I am the iron that fights your will

Get your hands away from me
Your freezing fingers on my spine

Speak to me as if I care
Speak to me like I was there

Remove these bonds and set me free
Alone and hungry all this time
I am the freedom you can't find
Because I'm only in your mind

Get my hands away from me
My freezing fingers on my spine

Shackled to the Fear
Shackled to the Fear
7. ...y dolor en la Tierra (5:33)
Cerca de ti
Ya no estoy,
Ya no estoy

Bajo tu luz,
Quiero soñar
Que no existe más
El sufrimiento
Contra el que luchas

Día a día
Te hieren más,
Sin importar
Lo que das sin pensar
Y ahora estás distante

Vivirías sin dolor ni rencor
Si no hubiera poder

Parte de mi ser,
Dejaste tu marca en mi piel

Parte de mi alma
Te volveré a ver mi amada

Venezuela
8. Aftermath (5:34)
Can you hear a scream of pain if echoes just remain?
Can you smell the burning if you cannot see the flame?
The meaning in the silence, the words behind the page
Walls alone are not a cell, nor steel bars a cage

You couldn’t hear the tears that were whispering your name
Standing there, waiting for the words that never came

Even in the widest space
The walls were closing in
The look upon your pretty face
Reflected in my skin

Look at me, please look at me, please catch me as I fall
I’m pleading with you for my life, yet you stay in my thrall
Don’t follow me, don’t follow me, I needed you to lead
The tighter that you held me, the more my wounds would bleed

Your arms, a place of solitude, a meaningless embrace
Glancing past the agony engraved upon my face

Two souls are brought together
Remain so far apart
The warmest touch of love can be
A dagger through the heart

A smile and a pirouette, the inside fades to black
A meeting of two lovers, cold and standing back to back
Caught in the aftermath

Your empty eyes just staring through me
Watching as I fell
The last thing that I saw as I
Descended into hell
9. Faceless (4:51)
Don’t seek, for someone near you
Don’t weep, no one will hear you
Don’t speak, your worthless mind makes
Only those empty words with a

Voice that makes no sound
Forced to turn your eyes down
And gaze upon the ground
To hide your shame, you’re

Faceless,
We can stare right through you, you’re
Faceless,
The blackness speaking to you, you’re
Faceless,
Without recognition, you’re
Faceless,
Just an apparition

Why do you play at living or
Try to find us forgiving
I do not want to see you
Cry to me seeking love with a

Voice that makes no sound
Forced to turn your eyes down
And gaze upon the ground
To hide your shame, you’re

Faceless,
We can stare right through you, you’re
Faceless,
The blackness speaking to you, you’re
Faceless,
Without recognition, you’re
Faceless,
Just an apparition

Faceless
Faceless

Be gone from my presence,
You don’t deserve a name
Pathetic and disgusting
Cowering in shame
You just demean us by
Dragging your problems here
Bleatings of a no one
Nobody wants to hear

Faceless,
We can stare right through you, you’re
Faceless,
The blackness speaking to you, you’re
Faceless,
Without recognition, you’re
Faceless,
Just an apparition

Faceless
10. Under the Silent Stars (3:07)
Flying under the silent stars
The freedom of release
A burden lifted from the heart
A troubled soul at peace

Flying under the silent stars
The moonlight on the sea
Passing on to places far
Wherever they may be

Flying under the silent stars
Alone, unburdened, free.
The cries of pain, the shouts of war
Will speak no more to me

Flying under the silent stars
The ocean underneath
A message back to where you are
To shed no tear of grief
