Atoma Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 버닝앤젤       Last modified by level 버닝앤젤
1. Encircled (3:32)
I see myself in the bodies being carried out
I see myself in you when safety falls again
It broke something essential like nothing ever would
A promise to give, a promise to hold

This is not what I want you to hear right now
But our time is running out
So far removed from what you need to know
Words too hard to handle
Our time is running out
We're by demons encircled

Eroding away at reason
The bile of insecurity
This fear devoid of nuance
And fact resistant belief
I hold together what I can
I hold together what I know

These are just symptoms of experience and life
I wish I could postpone

It eats at our logic like nothing ever should
It claws at our humanity so that nothing can remain
This is the currency of faith and we are coming up short
The reality of failure, now upon us 
2. Atoma (4:19)
I will not play along
With things I find unfair
I will not mount defences
Against unjust attacks
This land was never given
We built this on our own
Insanity dependant
Whether we rise or fall
Whether we rise or we fall
One for the night, one for uncontrolled

Hold your feet to the ground
To the end of our time
For the rest of our lives
Hold your head on high
To the end of our time
For the rest of our lives

Secretly I hope
That nothing ever comes of this
And you are not alone
Wanting to come back
To a place where it won’t matter
Just what side you’re on
It’s when our lines are graded
What’s underneath will overcome
What’s underneath will overcome
One for the night, one for the uncontrolled

Hold your feet to the ground
To the end of our time
For the rest of our lives
Hold your head on high
To the end of our time
For the rest of our lives

Now it’s time to stand up tall
One for the night, one for the uncontrolled

Hold your feet to the ground
To the end of our time
For the rest of our lives
Hold your head on high
To the end of our time
For the rest of our lives
3. Forward Momentum (3:40)
We worry about echoes
While we being held back by the speed of light

This is the time of no regret
In a forward momentum race
We leave in our wake
What is broken, forgotten and gone

I squint my eyes
As if to make my sight extend a little further

This is the time of no regret
In a forward momentum race
We leave in our wake
What is broken and forgotten

The dream is nothing
Yet it drives us to the end
These words unforce our hand
Hold on, hold on

In fear of true deception
Our lives are being brought back down

This is the timeof no regret
In a forward momentum race
We leave in our wake
What is broken and forgotten 
4. Neutrality (4:17)
Much like the tension built between force and will
Stray voltage wanders from neutral to earth
Lest we forget to forgive the signals get crossed
These two grounded objects on the opposite side of

Right or wrong where empathy was once
Is not the end - this is the reasoning

I call you out so take it once and for all
The weight of the world on you
I call you out to claim neutrality

We failed our own reality on reality's terms
The less we know the more we forge
What suits our single-minded goals

It all comes down to this
A reverse polarity
In opposites we see what unity must be
Forever taking down the man-made walls of strife
Forever taking them down

I call you out so take it once and for all
The weight of the world on you
I call you out to be accountable today tomorrow
I call you out

There's nothing like the friction sound
The slow burn of prolonged frustation
Wearing down the jagged edges
To fit within the margins
The fires spread throughout the night

It must now go down to where it can begin
Inside out I call you 
5. Force of Hand (4:22)
This is not a failure, this is not an end
These are just symptoms of a trajectory descent
Further down the line you hide from the memories of unresolve
The struggle is lost

All this time of knowing
Letting piece by piece slip away
Cause when they're all against you
You fail

Don't you force my hand
Don't you force me

When the silence has spoken in his imminent storm
Taken to the nth degree where failure forms

Spiralling deception
Left the mindless drifting away
Cause when they're out to get you
You fail

All this time ends in nothing
These walls of doubt built into our minds
All this time signifying something
A victim without circumstance

All this time of knowing
Letting piece by piece slip away
Cause when they're all against you
You fail 
6. Faithless by Default (4:31)
To ends unknown by means unworthy
To answer wishes, long dead and gone
Old empty promises, a just reward for the blind
Belief makes work for idle minds, we lost our way

The only dream that matters is the on you wake up from

Go

Onward to the singularity
Whatever they say, whatever they do just go
Turn on this unentity
Whatever they say, whatever they do just go
We are faithless by default

I call for a world where we are nothing
More than the sum of what we know
Are we to be geld hostage
By our tolerance for the intolerant
Then we've lost our way

To hope is to surrender in this series of defeats

A pain far too familiar
Denounce your savage self 
7. The Pitiless (4:08)
Right now!
Right here!
We stand alone!

Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone!

Forever confounded
By the burning margins
To get without context

When into denial
Give in to ignorance
When the world responds in kind
Put an end to the search
And nullify the sense of life

Alone in silence!
Yes I am frightened and so are you
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone!

Against the ever coming night!

So we step back
To reveal a new perspective
When the allure of our gift is worn off
Not the least be curios
When giants steps away
No going back
Our time is running out

Alone in silence!
Yes I am frightened and so are you
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone!

Must we resort
To the end of our inquiry
For this to make sense?
This to make sense!

Right here!
Right now!
We stand alone!

Give up or recount them
The days of your life
The truth was of essence
When time was alive

There is no incentive to
Give in to the absurd
Reality and comfort
Live forever to oppose

Forever opposed!

Alone in silence!
Yes I am frightened and so are you
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone!
8. Our Proof of Life (4:22)
At a certain point it happens
Life becomes to real
And nothing can hold back
What is about to be

I don't know how close we need to get
To blind out the surroundings and focus on the real

I know you're gone
But this reality is crashing down on me
Crashing down to defeat all purpose
I know you're gone
I'm just not ready I'm just not done
I am ever in resistant disbelief

When raw emotion gets in
The way of our throughts and words
We pass so far beyond our breaking point

I don't know how far we need to be
From all that we don't want to see
To regain prespective

I know, yet I fail to find purpose and form
I know, but the truth just makes it harder
9. Clearing Skies (3:33)
Our backs can never carry these atrocities around
So we focus on what's safely within reach to market our concerns
Inside this time and place, there is nothing more you can be to me
Bring out your fear, bring out your death, bring out your pain

For now we lie to ourselves to live
Sorrow will find you

You're the only one who knows things I never say
And nothing can be done 'til skies are clear again
These are things we never talk about
So hear me out this time
I know one day this sorrow will find you

Let your heroes burn their crowns, you're better than this I know
This world can change the best of us
Sometimes for the worst
Sometimes for the ones we try to hold
The ones we hold on to
Bring out yout fear, bring out your death 
10. When the World Screams (3:57)
Let the weakness set in this world I know
Days cannot hold me, I blur in between
Never fully engaged, the mind races between words
As far as I can get, away from it all

When indecision ends can life begin again

I am silence when the world screams out
I am escape when you reach out to me
I am panic
I am fear behind these walls that protect me
I am failure and resistance
I am lost where I belong
I am silence when the world screams

My insecurity extends to others talking about themselves
Fed with this poison of self righteous false confidence
It's in their eyes, it's in our lives

Set to the tune of darkness, this is one to hold
I cannot stop insanity from chasing down my thoughts
Linger in the mind for what now seems indefinite time
My mind is holding me down 
11. Merciless Fate (4:22)
What if this image was taken
In an instant erased from the world
What if the truth is too far
And you reality can't cope with the distance
In the abstract a mind never challenged
Is the bearer of merciless fate

All you can feel is the loss of who you are
By force or by fire, by force or by flame
All you will know is the void of emptiness
By force or the flame 'til reason prevails

When the doubt starts to creep in your mind
And subverts the true cause of your ways
You must remain a witness of merciless fate

All that you see is a darkness
From the outside looking in
All you can sense is surface tension
From a distance grasping at straws

All you can feel is the loss of who you are
It's not about you, it's not about you
All you will know is the void of emptiness
By force of the flame, this merciless fate
12. Caves and Embers (4:30)
Despite what is out there burning
Our faces remain intact
We hear the screaming of the voiceless
Yet we are numb to the pain of others
We filter out the light
It never penetrates our blinding screens
We can take a stand

But in the end it all means nothing
We rage out but we are wasting away

From the roots below
To the boundless stars above
We are nothing at all

What separates us from the others
A difference in choices made
We take an insignificant stance
What would we do in a opinion vaccuum
When left unaccountable
So here we are far from the world
Just wasting away

Doing nothing being nothing
We are the favoured design
And we're wasting away

From the caves and embers
To the heart of the beyond
We are nothing at all

Here we are doing nothing
Being nothing
We are wasting away
