The Warning After Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Tonightmare
Come forth, my baby, my child, my little one
So many years have passed
You should have become a
Full grown man now
Oh my, oh my, it looks like something
Has gone bad here
Your life slipped out of your hands
While you kept on stepping on
The same wrong paths
Was that the fear of what you
Wanted to become?
Was that the sense of void when you realized
All your dreams had been dreamt
In vain? In vain...
But tonightmare all your biggest
Fears are becoming worse than true
Yes, tonightmare you'll realize there
Never is an escape
For the likes of you
2. The Goggle Mirror
Everything is already here
There's no need to create anymore
Just connect to the magnum brain
Log in to the global heart

You know they're watching you
Coming to drain your conscience
Of all the things akin to a
Human soul you will forget them all

Then all your needs will be satisfied
Countdown to perfect fulfillment
Even fun won't be funny anymore
No end justifies such means

Are these my thoughts that
I'm thinking or am I merely conforming
To what they want me to think
Getting lost in the goggle mirror?
Is this my face that I'm watching
Every line a fault to be wiped away
Until I get the perfect features
To get lost in the goggle mirror?

And everything will be there for you
Every feeling you wanna feel
Every tear you need to cry
Every second that passes by
Every hope someone else
Has hoped for you

Are these my thoughts that
I'm thinking or am I merely conforming
To what they want me to think
Getting lost in the goggle mirror?
Is this my face that I'm watching
Every line a fault to be wiped away
Until I get the perfect features
To get lost in the goggle mirror?
3. Brother to the End
God, look down on me: I'm flesh and
Bone in your own image and likeness too

The more I know myself
The closer is the end
And when I think I'm done
There's always more to, always more to come
Time is passing fast
No time and no regrets
As my mind slides away
The whole world and I, and I collide

Dwelling in such a grim place all
This darkness is here and real
When our whole life is crumbling, falling
Please count on me 'cause we're
Brothers to the end
Crying though no one cares
While their words choke you to death
Standing with your mask of terror
Please count on me 'cause we're
Brothers to the end

Present tense proves to be
A matter of time and space
While even my conscious mind
Steals images back, back from my dreams

Come on, let's all pray in vain
To a God that's just been slain
Let us all just fight and fall
While our souls have all been sold
If you think you're safe
'Cause you knelt
You shouldn't resent the pain you've felt
So you'll know, when you get all the blame
Destabilization is such a funny game

So now we know ourselves
On the verge of the end
My brother, we're not done
There's something more to
Something more to come

Dwelling in such a grim place...
4. Inside the Vacuity Circle
5. Standing in the Rain
What have I got feelings for
If I can't share what I feel
With the people that I care
The most about?
What is the point of being alone
If I can't come home
At the end of the day
Back into your arms?

A kind of suffering
So deliciously sweet

Why don't you stop to be a son
And try to become a person
In front of the freak show of your fears?

Why do I spend my time singing
If my songs can't get to you
And my voice will never get under your skin?
What is the sense in growing old
If my years are quickly passing through my fingers
Before I've even grown up?

A kind of suffering
So deliciously sweet

I'm alone tonight, standing in the rain
Hoping it can wash my soul deep within
I'm alone tonight, standing in the rain
Hoping it can wash my soul deep within
Inside of me

Let the night melt into morning
Brought on by the heaviness of your eyelids
And the softness of your breath
Let a perfect moment of simple existence
Be brought by the tenderness of your smile

And the depth of your sight

I'm alone tonight...
6. No More Heroes
We aren't here to wipe the mediocrity away
Of this culture in which everything under the sun
Has already been thought and done, so it seems
And every living being has been somehow classified

Saving us from this crisis of the intellect
Would take a hero, sorry boy, but there are

No more heroes on the block
No heroes in town
There's not one damn hero left
That you can see around
No more heroes on the block
Ain't no heroes in town
There's not one damn hero left
That you can see around

Still I'm trying in vain again to
Arrange my own sweet chaos
Won't you touch my high-tech flesh
Won't you taste my high-tech blood?
I don't believe in anything, but you
Still believe in me
Tell me how can this ever be a fair exchange?

No more heroes...

And you will see for yourself
[No more heroes]
That we are one and the same
[No more heroes]
A circle that never ends
[Ain't no heroes left in town
Coming just in time]
Saving us from this crisis...

No more heroes, left in town
I said, no more heroes you can see around
Just human faults and a few cheap tricks
No more heroes, people, gather here!
7. Of Tears and Rhymes
It might be so easy, easier than you'd ever thought
Just forget all that you think
The world wants you to be
We spend some time together, than we
Spend some time with ourselves
What is the difference, my friend
After all?

Please, oh please, now heal these wounds
Ooh, precious thing, heal my wounds

I'm standing here, naked, in the spendour of your sight
Wondering how much of us has been wasted and gone
A wounded angel, falling bleeding to the ground
I'll turn my water into wine, turn my tears into rhymes

For all the love I've loved in vain
I hate your love, 'cause it brings me pain

Please, oh please, now heal these wounds
Ooh, precious thing, heal my wounds

I'm standing here, naked, in the spendour of your sight
Wondering how much of us has been wasted and gone
A wounded angel, falling bleeding to the ground
I'll turn my water into wine, turn my tears into rhymes
So she left me all alone
With a blessing and a curse
Wondering if my ghosts and demons will always be me
8. The Warning After
So you want to hear the noise I make when I break
because you guess it can sound like music too
Well I've got news for you
I don't want to dream
Dreams somebody else has
Dreamt for me anymore

Lost in a never ending haze of salvation and damnation
Happiness and depression, ups and downs of my soul
It's too late when you realize
Time isn't on your side anymore
Nothing is forever, except what is unknown
Then the warning after comes

I have played with that fire for more than a while
Sure it was a joke, but some jokes
They are not for free
Never had any reward for being what I am
Just the chance of being able to live day by day

Lost in a never ending haze of salvation and damnation
Happiness and depression, ups and downs of my soul

It's too late...
9. In This Wicked World
Then came the day that all would stop and
Realized my world was ruled by slobs, well
Not even sure the name of god was spelt like that
My friend, I don't believe in love, no
My love, I don't believe in friends, say
I just believe in this gun I'm holding in my hand
So I scream out loud, I scream

Hey! Do you think we are ready?
[Yeah!]
Do you think we are here to stay?
To claim our place in this wicked world...
Hey! Do you think that we are afraid?
[No!]
Do you think we've got what it takes?
To claim our place in this wicked world...

We are the spoiled sons and daughters
Of a world that no longer bothers
Cradled in the 80's dreams of omnipotence
Our souls are trapped and reflected
By buildings of steel and glass, so
We are so pissed off it could be a form of art
10. Arcade Warriors
Have you ever felt that chill
Running through your spine?
There's no turnin' back
The quest has begun
Push the limit, break the chain
Test your will or die!
Unmask yourself, become player one

The game is over before it starts
No place for losers it's time to go
There is no way I'm gonna lose the game tonight
I'm gonna beat 'em, shoot 'em up till the ending lines

Arcade warriors! Always ready to join the fight
Arcade warriors! Even if the end is nigh
Arcade warriors! Until victory is at hand
Arcade warriors! To the end and further on
Not knowing what is next, that's what boosts my life!

Always lookin' for a way to cheat death
Got my nerves on the edge, I'm stuck with no escape

Swear and beat my beast like Kong 64

The game is over...

Arcade warriors!...

All this time, lost in a fable game
Joining the tribe, and living such a half life
Street fight, it sounds fine
Kind of a legacy, visions of an old creed
Welcome to my place, welcome to the arcade
Up to the final stage, waiting for the special move
Suit up, rush into action
Insert coin and eat my dust!
