Shaping the Soul Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Metal-42
1. Blindfolded (4:39)
I am standing by your side
Destroying my mind
While I let this time fly

In denial

I do not trust a word they say
Believing this was meant to stay
Stuck in my head, it’s all okay
Please wake me up to yesterday

Blindfolded I ran
Towards peace of mind
Searching for an answer
I wont remember

Ending this far down
Just to turn around

Leaving it all behind
Wish I could rewind

I am lurking into fright
Memories going wild
Nothing will make this right
In denial

I do not trust a word they say
Believing this was meant to stay
Stuck in my head, all’s gone away
Don’t wake me up to this day

Leaving it all behind
Wish I could rewind
2. Lies After Lies (4:36)
Nothing left untold

All my pain unfolds

Suffer has come to an end

Don’t wanna be part of this again

A life full of secrets

Kept inside a bewitching head
Forgiving was my weakness
When caught in your nasty web

It’s all gone now

We’re all done anyhow

Wished for your attention then
It’s all gone now

Lies after lies
I saw the devil in disguise
Lies after lies

You made us slowly die

This has been too much to handle
You blew all the candles

I will never realise

Why you’ve done those sacrifices

I was mesmerised

Like light to flies

Now I see clear, all my oldest fears
Came back to life
Such a shame

You loved to play this game

And you’re all alone

Now that your true face has been shown

3. Shaping the Soul (6:10)
Deep and intricate revelations
Within my inner grief

The pain is blurring my sight
In search of a new start

I worship the unreal

Learn to fight your endless fears
Until nightmares disappear

Into daylight

Acting like nothing’s wrong

I like the places I don’t belong

Secrets will be kept untold
While I’m trying to stay whole
But sometimes I realise

The countless times I fall

The filling of an endless void

Of all that couldn’t be forgot
Can’t control and will not hold
The shaping of my soul

Reality and dreams intertwined
Everything’s fading away

My hearth stands at bay
Emptiness drives my will

Can those wounds even heal
Suffered too much to go down
Learn to never hit the ground
When pain comes around

Can’t control
The shaping of my soul

Secrets kept untold

Trying to stay whole

Sometimes I realise

The countless times I fall

Can’t control
The shaping of my soul
4. Walk Away (7:58)
Far down the line

You’ve crossed too many faces

Knowing the pain left you out to dry
Empty of all your tears you cannot hide
All alone you walk away

Hesitation, to forget or to forgive
What in this world is left
for you to live

Holding on to the past

Such as it once was

Let time fly without you

Sadness dwelling gently into you
A breach over a perfect line
When everything seemed so fine
Holding on to the past

Such as it once was

5. If Only (4:28)
If only I could see

What would you ask of me
If only I was free

To rewrite our apogee

If only I could stand

Out of this quicksand

If only I could feel

The touch of your skin

What would you ask of me
To rewrite our apogee
Drowning into quicksands
The touch of your skin
What would you ask of me
Would it be as easy

What’s left to save

I Would’ve put you safe

If you’ve ever been next to me

It’s time to listen carefully

I’m falling please catch me

Where are you now that I need you
Is this reality playing tricks on me
It was my faith, our destiny

Taken away from me
To madness
I’ll obey

If only I could see

What would you ask of me
If only it was me

Would it be as easy

If only I could take
What’s left to save

If only you told me
Would’ve put you safe
6. Emma (1:46)
Instrumental
7. Edelweiss (4:20)
Lost but never forgotten

I’m frighten now

I don’t know how

I’m standing alone

I lost my home

Seeking something rare
Forgotten to be wise
You’re my Edelweiss

I’m Standing alone
I lost my home

Gone

It’s all but a farewell

If only I could not blame myself
I will not back down

To where my hopes have dwelled
The moon shines red tonight
Nothing will bring you back
Hoping for a new tomorrow

Endless nightmares
My shadow stares
At the man I am not

At least I thought
Since you’re gone
My inside dies

You were my Edelweiss
8. Hopeless (4:45)
I stand on the edge with myself

When did I found out I got lost

Every move I make brings me a little closer
I just hope this will soon be over

As a shadow I’m facing a wall
Endless frights, hopeless nights
Staring at those empty frames
Of the one I once became

Only steps away from being free
Why did it happened to me

Gone too far to stand a chance
Tell me how this will end

I stand on the edge with myself

When did it all take this turn
Everything I build slowly falls apart

Is there hope, or nothing but illusions

I stand on the edge with myself
When did I walk away from my dreams
I crushed my hopes from their seeds
An empty soul wanders around
Emptied from all its wounds

Staring at empty frames

Of the one I became

Gone too far to stand a chancer
Tell me how this will end
9. The Dive (6:39)
I swallowed my pride,

In remembrance of a time

Where we both used to touch the sky
Together forever,

It was just a bunch of lies

Now you’re off my life

I can’t remember why
Why did I even try

I can’t remember why
Why did I make the dive

I can forgive, but I can’t forget
All these years, torn apart
Pleasure and misery

Scrambled into you, blind
Clarity inside a hopeless mind

Diving, into chaos

Dazzled by hope that make me stand
Drowning, in a sea of lies

Playing seek and hide

And taking me down

Diving, into my mind

Compassion drowned in these eyes
Taking advantage of faith

How could you play me this way
Why drag me along

When you knew you were wrong

All I can say I wish I had known

You knew you were wrong

I’ve lived so much

I ran through time

Still sometimes I see

The spell you cursed on me
How couldn’t you realise
This wasn’t supposed to last
Clarity inside a hopeless mind

Wrong

I can forgive, but I can’t forget
All these years, torn apart
