Second Nature Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Open Up Your Eyes (12:24)
Dream, empty and grey
A story waiting for a place to begin

Hands, laying all the best laid plans
But where do we leave our mark In this life?
As the first child cries
Will you wear a disguise?
Or will you open up your eyes?

Torn, wearing the disease you mourn
Like a deep freeze it burns

Locked, sealed up and cast away
Surely, meaning never fades if it's true
Scarlet words be removed
And the prison in you dies
And you open up your eyes

Wait 'til the movement passes
Wait 'til your season comes
Lights on will soon be coming your way

Be faithful morning grateful
When your remission comes
Hear summer sing your winter away

Open up your eyes and come awake
You will be created now
Every step a stroke, a dream to shape
Emptiness is falling down

Open up your eyes, behold the blaze
Burning right before you now
Open up your mind and seize the day
You will be created now

I will dream
In color from a world away
Painting every sacred day
In living light
Carve my name in the tree of life
We will blaze
Every trial and trail of dust
'Til we all turn the midnight sun
To sunrise
On the canvas of our lives
Hear no evil, tell no lies
When we open up our eyes
2. Mask Machine (6:06)
Rows and rows of aisles for miles
And intercoms with screens that smile
And angry hands continue shaking
A hole as large as humankind
With no redeeming thing to buy
Calls to every soul worth saving
Welcome to the mask machine
Be someone else forever
We see the labels in my head
We're beautiful, our boss is dead T
here's nothing like an ego feeding

And when I get what I deserve
With love for sale and gold for dirt
I'll worship every fleeting aching

Welcome to the mask machine
Be someone else forever
Make me extra small
Beautiful and tall
Be anyone else forever

Fill my void
I want too much

Peel the layers one by one
A mask beneath a mask, undone
To shine the light on real and wild
And turn the world from dead to child

When I get what I deserve
With love for sale and gold for dirt
HI worship every fleeting aching

Welcome to the mask machine
You can be someone else forever
Make me extra small
Beautiful and tall
Be anyone else forever
3. Bombs Away (5:03)
Stuck in the heavy
Trapped in the distance
Feelin' so, oh, oh wrong

Made up of choices
And too many voices
Now it's all, all, all gone

Bombs away
Mountains are falling
Born in the thunder sky

Run by my instincts
I'm high on the freeway
And I'm scared I'll come down

Snackin' on Cheeze Whiz
Lost in the business
But I'd love to be found

Bombs away
Mountains are falling
Born in the thunder sky

I need you like I need a name
I've given up on everything
I'll give the rest of me to get to you
I need to find a way beyond
This life that I've just painted on
I'll give the rest of me to get to you

I need you like I need a name
I've given up on everything
I'll give the rest of me to get to you
I need to find a way beyond
This life that I've just painted on
I'll give the rest of me to get to you
4. The Fury of My Love (5:10)
Remember when we were young
Like Eden was in innocence
No looking through the camera lens
And every moment was
A living lightning afterglow
A constant river's overflow

And somewhere in the back of your mind
Yours was more important than mine

Then you went on your way
Just being who you couldn't be
Without our love's intensity
I'll never go halfway
For me it's all or everything
There's just no living in between

And somewhere in the back of my mind
I can't seem to leave you behind

Baby don't worry 'bout this intensity
It's just the fury of my love
Things aren't what they seem to be
It's just what you mean to me
And it's just the fury of my love

Can we start over now?
A place the past has never looked
A pardon closing every book
Love covers all our doubts
Unhindered by the icy shell
That's grown around your heart so well

Somewhere in the back of your mind
I'm the one you're looking to find

Baby don't worry 'bout this intensity
It's just the fury of my love
Things aren't what they seem to be
It's just what you mean to me
It's just the fury of my love

I hope you don't think I'm scary
Drowning in the pain
I hope you can recognize that
Your love means everything

Baby don't worry 'bout this intensity
It's just the fury of my love
Things aren't what they seem to be
It's just what you mean to me
It's just the fury of my love

My love
My love
My love
My love
5. A Place in Your World (6:25)
Would you like to see within my heart?
Would you like to be there when I fall apart?
The sun might scorch my eyes
But no-one ever cries a tear for me

Is there nothing more that I can stand?
I feel so displaced now I'm the lonely man
But look into my eyes
And maybe you can see what's in my heart

Turn away
(Don't turn away)
Don't turn away
(Don't turn away)
I'm reaching out

Is there a place in your world?
Is there a place in your world?
Is there a place in your world for me?

What is there to do but try again?
Stuck in your solitude you won't find life again
But if you let this love
Rule you'll go where fools come rushing in

Take me down
(You take me down)
Find the flow
(Find the flow)
I still don't know
(I still don't know)

Is there a place in your world?
Is there a place in your world?
Is there a place in your world for me?
I want a place in your world
I want a place in your world
Is there a place in your world for me?

Help me if you can
I'm back where I began
Singing I surrender
I surrender
Tearing all the walls away
I'm giving you a place

Singing I surrender
I surrender
I'll give it all!

Turn away
(Don't turn away)
Don't turn away
(Don't turn away)
I'm reaching out

Is there a place in your world?
Is there a place in your world?
Is there a place in your world for me?
I want a place in your world
I want a place in your world
Is there a place in your world for me?

I'm gonna run
I'm gonna run
I'm gonna run
I'm gonna run
6. Lost Without You (4:46)
Wake up Monday morning pessimistic in my head
And everyday I'm waiting 'til I can go back to bed
But you're smilin'
In your window hide away
I'm tryin'
Just to stay alive another day

'Cause I'm lost
(Cause I'm lost)
Yes, I 'm lost
(Yes, I'm lost)
Without you

Every Thursday I go out and have a laugh or two
And everyone I'm with I can't help wishing they were you
It's old now
Abandoned, far away
So cold now
I'm still bringing flowers to the grave

Yeah, I'm lost
('Cause I'm lost)
Without you
(Without you)

And I'm finding all things wanting
'Cause all I want is you
Yeah, I'm lost
(Yeah, I'm lost)
Without you

Only time will help you now
Lizard kings to take you down
I'm still waiting for the sun, yeah
Living somewhere back in time
There's no ladder worth the climb
Gladly trade it all for love

Got no resolution
Just spinning in the blues
I'm finding all things wanting
For all I want is you

'Cause I'm lost
Without you

Yeah, I'm lost
(Yeah, I'm lost)
Without you
(Without you)

Without you...
7. One Love Forever (7:17)
At the end
Of the road
Where the sea
Meets the sky
All we know
We'll be leading to one
While the day
Wears you down

And you dance
Without sun
Kiss the ground
Well be reaching for

One love forever
One all-consuming light to find
One love forever
Leading me home

At the end
Of the road
Where the silence
Gets loud
In your soul
Were surrounded by

One love forever
One all-consuming light to find
One love forever
One chance creates your life
One love forever
For one consuming hole inside
One love forever

Son of dark and light
Awaiting
I'm laying him down like a centipede
Here's a flash of light
Cascading
Like an ocean it drowns my enemy

One love for all time
Is calling
Our eyes contain eternity

It's written on our souls
It must be
And still this love goes on...

One love forever
One all-consuming light to find
One love forever
One chance creates your life
One love forever
For one consuming hole inside
One love forever
Leading me home

One love forever
One love forever
One love forever
One love 'til forever
8. Peaceful Harbor (7:01)
Born into the wind
It makes its way
To the lost and the hollow
Life begins again
Sometimes we lead
Sometimes we follow
Where we do not know
No sky can hold
No end, no border
The wind will fill the sails
And push you through to peaceful harbor

Love, like Heaven's wind
No eye can see
How it blows in the darkness
Fear may freeze our steps
Loss and regret, every scar turning scarlet
Help to set your course
Through sightless days and violent waters
Love will fill your sails
And bring you through, to peaceful harbor

Chase this rising wind
Anchor released
No want of landing
All in deep despair
Come feel the air
In its full finale
And yes, the chase is on
I'll look beyond
With the bedlam behind me
And I embrace the sky
My soul will cry
May your wind ever find me
9. Cosmic Symphony (11:46)
[I. Still Life Of The World]

The moon is stained with midnight tears of fortune
Tainted pastures, scarecrows point to no one
My favorite cigarette plays its funeral song

A still life of the world
Shrinking violet wounded by her mother
Old men sleep while porcelain screams take over
And the wolf disguises her undying lover

A still life of the world
A still life of the world

[II. Searching For The Air]

I took in the Sunrise and I tried to save it
I looked through my own eyes and I thought I've made it
I thought I could reach the sky
but I'm stuck here on the ground

I wanted to drink wine from the captain's table
I saw in my mind's eye but my hands weren't able
Searchin' for the air but it all keeps comin' down, down,
comin' down
I'm searchin' for the air but I'm stuck here on the ground,
on the ground, on the ground now

Searchin' for the air but I'm stuck here on the ground now
Searchin' for the air
Searchin' for the air
Searchin' for the air

[III. Pound For Pound]

I'm neither more, I'm neither less
And I'm not trying to take some test
And I'm not trying prove myself
And I'm hot trying to run away...away from you

In all these years I've seen the changes take place
Like the ice melting away
Like the sun bringing the morning
And I know...it was all for you

And when I get to walk the streets
Without this burden on my feet
I know I've been called home
These shoes won't be my own to fill
When I see the past beneath
My heavy heart is finally free

I'm searchin' for the air
Searchin' for the air
But I have found
It's pound for pound

Underneath this cosmic symphony
Underneath this pain, this happiness
And underneath the river's stream...a will to live

I've given love, I've given hate
I've given peace and I've made a war
And I've been scarred by words and swords
But here I am, the will to live

And when I get to walk these streets
Without a burden on these feet
I'll know I've been called home
This place will be my own again
When I feel the past beneath
My heavy heart is finally free

I'm searchin' for the air
Searchin' for the air
But I have found
It's pound for pound
