Moontower Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Sun of the Night (5:14)
Shadowscapes form a web across the sky,
And steal the light that runs the engine of my heart
Deceived by clouds but I know it will soon return, to watch my every move,
like an eye in the sky
Lunartic, obsessed I am indeed, I will gain no strength this moonless night
Heavens heart or just a long forgotten stone
All life lost, or is it yet to come

The stars will be alone in the firmament tonight
Shadows grow stronger across the sky
The sun prepares for battle
The night is soon to die
Vicious beams will soon obscure the presence of the sun of the night
The presence of the sun of the night

My soul despise the dawning and the light that it will bring
Doomed to be nocturnal
A creature of the night
Another dawn dilutes the dark void where I can live
The rays of light burn my skin and ravage my desire

I close my eyes and I await the vengeance soon to come
When the dusk will bring the unlight and heal me once again

I have to return to my tower before the twilight will drain me of life
Tomorrow I need to be caressed by the moonlit sky or my soul will be carried away by the light

Just like the sun of the night
Just like the sun of the night



Shadowscapes form a web across the sky,
And steal the light that runs the engine of my heart
Deceived by clouds but I know it will soon return, to watch my every move,
like an eye in the sky

The moon is mine
Oh how I long to be one with the sun of the night
Oh how I long to unite with the sun of mine
2. Patchworks (4:59)
I have healed the broken wings of fallen angels and laid the wildest storms to rest
I have tamed the fury of a thousand oceans
All I've done is to fall asleep
A tribute to the dreaming
A hymn to the delusions that sometimes really feels like they're real
In the deepest slumber reality is blended with fantasies and things I have
repressed
When I awake all the stories remain inside my head
Memories forgotten always reappear in the wicked sceneries
Characters that once fell into oblivion united with my recent past
Tribute to my dreaming
Hymn to the delusions that I sometimes really wish were for real
In the deepest slumber reality is twisted and staggered across the halls of my head
When I awake I can remember it still and it is nothing that my senses can kill
And I fall through the passage of time
Then there's the nightmares
That never seem to leave my mind
I can't escape it
They're even stronger when I close my eyes
How to forget and how to erase all the wicked scenes in here
How to make them disappear and burn this patchwork of fear
How to delete
How do I stop all the sickened things I see in this spurious diary that wasn't
made by me
How to replace my artificial memories
3. Uncreation (5:40)
A tale forgotten long ago brought to life again
Ancient wisdom ancient lies
Horrid lullabies for the earth
Time will turn my prophecies into reality and it will lead the world astray
Death found the remedy for its enemy
It’s too late the seize the day
Time and my malicious spells live in harmony
They await the hour set
Rapture of all that is alive
The reaper will arrive to invert the hour glass
Oh uncreation
The evolution in reverse
Oh uncreation
The death of universe
His reflections on the end still unknown to man
Dark predictions dark clichés in this recital of doom
The world is aging backwards
The young remains the young
We all know tomorrow will be yesterday reborn
The time and space deserted will hold no life for man
We face these final hours to be buried in the past
Something is wrong with the sky tonight
The clouds are darker than ever before
There is unrest in the stars alight
As if they warned me for the distant roar
The sun is descending
Nevermore to shine
Light is lost forever
We are the last in line
4. Add Reality (6:17)
Time is ever-changing I will never have it back
Sometimes I had wondered if the best was yet to come

I can't deny it there are moments I regret
So much I'd do different if I could do it all again

I lost the world and I didn't find it until you found me
Gone but it came back in the wake of your smile
Now I am stronger growing the soul of a man
And I know my heart will never be alone again
I've got a life and nothing will make it go away
I guess we glorified the world around us as we went along the way

One day reality was all there ever was
I ate and drank your beauty and breathed the air you had breathed

Then came the autumn and the winter like before
Dreamland turned to realland and we faced a new frontier

We lost the world
Sometimes we hold it but it's slipping away
When we add reality it doesn't taste like our dream
Then there's too much sour too much salt in our world
There's too many cooks to decide what two lovers shall eat
We're not alone
I know you know what I mean with these words now don't you
We're siamese children related by heart
And nothing can tear us apart

When we share the silence she knows what I'm saying
Words though unspoken are changing heart
Two-thousand days have now passed since
I met you and of so many only four-hundred alone
only four-hundred alone

Then we were joined by a fusion of my eyes and the face of an angel
It reminds me of her
With you around all the day are worth living and when we add reality now we're
still standing strong
5. Creating Illusions (4:13)
You create a hell for the ones to buy your illusion
You design a spell that you cast upon the forsaken
Hortative
You engender temptation
Re-create
Invent the latest sensation
Procreate
Produce the perfect delusion
Your god is digital

You erase the deviations
Adding beauty to the frail
Dreams contrived upon a drawing-table set the pace of the vain
Trust the vagaries of fashion
Do what all the others do
Total loss of independence
You've always wishing you were someone else

You create a hell for the ones to buy your illusion
You design a spell that you cast upon the forsaken
Hortative
You engender temptation
Re-create
Invent the latest sensation
Procreate
Produce the perfect delusion
Your god is digital

You behold your victims inane
Opinions cast aside
And when they try to change
And try to find their native demeanor
They are frozen out, precluded from the coven from the mass of fools
There's a message and receivers who will see it as a rule
There's an image made to covet
Global mass-manipulation complete
High-technology will cover all the errors in the way
Can't you see that you deflower and deform the generations to come
You behold your victims inane
Opinions cast aside

I will have to confess
The music you listen to now
Is pretty damn far from the truth
In league with machines
That help me to play all of the harmonies born in my head
You behold your victims inane
Opinions cast aside
6. The Big Sleep (5:17)
Sometimes when I think about it, it doesn't make any sense
I mean I'm alive and plan to be for yet another seventy years
Time waits for no one
Not even for god
We're only immortal for a limited time
Someone said we were only born to die
Someone said there is a meaning with it all
I love the world and I barely believe that I will leave it for good one day
Someone said my religion is the way
Someone said don't try to say that you are not afraid
No!
I refuse to let the angels take me away
I have already learned what heaven and hell is about
The big sleep is the only thing that is for sure and we're all gonna face it
It’s something we have to endure

Dreamers say that time will come with a way to stay alive
They mean science will finally reach its goal and offer everlasting life

I love my life and it's so hard to hear that one day all I am will disappear
I have seen grief and what it does to you
The day will come when I will lose what I was made of
I try to imagine what that would be like but the thought is so unreal so it is filtered out
I'm so afraid that I won't have the chance to tell the ones I love how I really feel inside
I hide my emotions for far too long
I am so afraid to lose you all that's the essence of this song

Am I the only one to think that hell is to be left alone
To live without that special someone
To feel like the king that lost his throne
Have you ever seen the dying
Touched the fading one
The last time I saw the Queen of nostalgia she was basically already gone
Time waits for no one
Not even for heroes
Life will have its way and we have to follow
Someone said it might be true what they say
Someone said I will be able to freeze the frame of what you are today
I have no wish to be young forever
I just don't wanna die
Someone said our souls will live again
I say the only one that I wanna be is me

No!

I refuse to let the angels take me away
I have already learned what heaven and hell is about
The big sleep is the only thing that is for sure and we're all gonna face it

8. In Empty Phrases (5:58)
Here I am in my chamber
In my room full of words
Always searching for patterns that will give life to a line
My poetry is frozen though it's beginning to melt
The solid form is changing to the liquid of thoughts written down
Sentence after sentence in a language not mine
Loss of point no direction
A jigsaw where no pieces fit

I envy the writers and the poets who know the way to the places where poetry grow
There is no harvest if you never sow
So I beg, steal and borrow wherever I go

Here I am in my chamber
In my room full of words
Always searching for patterns that will give life to a line
My poetry is frozen though it's beginning to melt
The solid form is changing to the liquid of thoughts written down
Sentence after sentence in a language not mine
Loss of point no direction
A jigsaw where no pieces fit

If words were like music this would be a book
But this is not even worth the time that it took
Not even a novel just a self-pity tale written by someone that always will fail

So very fragile inside
That's why I hide in the empty phrases
