The Fall of Hearts Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Takeover (7:09)
You wait by the river.
Days are long and melt right into nothing.
You wait for my eyes.
And who else is waiting for the summer sky?

Your still voice drives me further under now.
No tomb or blessing, buried in the poisoned ground.

Unbearable to have the beast untied.
The coming of my ruin, age tears the spine.
The devil inside comes back to escort me.

I burn, this fever drives me straight into your arms again.
Unspeakable, drop your withered pride, come back and forgive me.

Freezing in the blue light,
I hid my plan under a blanket of dust.
The pressure of the years,
delivers me back into your grip.

I am pledging my love to you, still waiting.

Breathing under siege,
oppressed by the dreams I have to feed.
Crushed by the flood, I won't let you go.

Born unwise,
seeking trust in a broken creed.
Crushed by the grey, I'm waiting for colour.

You wait by the river, you wait for my eyes.
And who else is waiting for the summer sky?

Your still voice drives me further under now.
No tomb or blessing, buried in the poisoned ground.

Unbearable to have the beast untied.
The coming of my ruin, age tears the spine.
The devil inside comes back to escort me.

I burn, this fever drives me.
Come back and forgive me!

I burn, this fever drives me straight into your arms again.

Breathing under siege,
oppressed by the dreams I have to feed.
Crushed by the flood, I won't let you go.

Born unwise,
seeking trust in a broken creed.
Crushed by the grey, I'm waiting for colour.
2. Serein (4:46)
In the morning, the battle for endurance has been lost.
Sold my worth and dignity the same.
I am shade and essence of corroding time.

So pale next to my love.
In every way, meaningless scar.

Through the evening,
where our wisdom turns to rust.
Fill the gap with lost integrity.
I become the one you haven't seen for years.

Liberating rain,
two shots and I need more.
Adapt to the flow.

A taste of the void,
get back and focus again.
More of the fire.

It churns the blood, the waves of dependence.
Await to be slain by memories of old.
It churns the blood, the waves of dependence.
Await to be slain by memories of old.

In every way, meaningless scar.
I become the one you haven't seen for years.

Liberating rain,
two shots and I need more.
Adapt to the flow.

A taste of the void,
get back and focus again.
More of the fire.

It churns the blood, the waves of dependence.
Await to be slain by memories of old.
It churns the blood, the waves of dependence.
Await to be slain by memories of old.
3. Old Heart Falls (4:22)
The weighted clouds coming by,
has me looking right here under the sky.
And I left my home, passed the evening fires.
In the blink of an eye, I had closed the door behind me.

The vapour of old love,
will transfigure through a veil of clarity.
I sense my grave way below the mire.

Sorrow will find you,
its voice has given way to mine.
Heart pumps death into heredity.
Who wants to come with me?

For every dream that is left behind me, I take a bow.
With every war that will rage inside me,
I hear the sound of another day in this vanishing life.
Returned to dust, and every chance I've pushed away into the night.

Time won't let go, it's got you in debt now.
And it's got me crawling all the way back to the start.
I swear that I saw you there, your hands were reaching out for mine.

Sorrow will find you.

For every dream that is left behind me, I take a bow.
With every war that will rage inside me,
I hear the sound of another day in this vanishing life.
Returned to dust, and every chance I've pushed away into the night.

I sense my grave way below the mire.
4. Decima (4:46)
Leaving the choirs behind to sing,
of anything fair, of lilac spring.
A dream of truce behind my eyes.
A life of journeys will unwind.

Emerge through idle air.

Born under a troubled sign.
Will it hurt to see me find,
the long lost peace of mind?

Darling, you had me here for a while.
It breaks my heart to see you cry.
In the wake of incomplete time.

Darkness overthrows!

Map of nowhere is in my hand.
The roads are blurred, sojourners land.
So take however long you want, but don't forget my love.
You've pledged yourself to come along.

You're lost in reveries, holding back the tears.
Faint sound of the wires.
The butterfly is in the fire now.

Lost in a memory you're holding my hands.
One heart is in the ground.
The other is veiled in silver all around.

Born under a troubled sign.
Will it hurt to see me find,
the long lost peace of mind?

Darling, you had me here for a while.
It breaks my heart to see you cry.
In the wake of incomplete time.
5. Sanction (5:07)
Bring on salvation!
I have a way to find mine: I swallow light!
And what if I move, lapsing into failure.
In the lowering night, in the lowering night.

I had waited for you,
though I was certain you wouldn't come back, no.

Into the after hours!

Smudged my heart for all to see.
But it's so quiet now, makes it harder to shine.
Had a dream about tomorrow!
But with nothing more to think about, I fade out.

Bring on sedation!
I have waited a long time and dragged myself a long way.
There's a flight to Medellín, twelve hours of drinking gin.
Awakened by summer!

Sever the ties that were once unyielding.
Packed my money under night's neon curtain.

Smudged my heart for all to see.
But it's so quiet now, makes it harder to shine.
Had a dream about tomorrow!
But with nothing more to think about, I fade out.
6. Residual (6:54)
Rid my mind of residual thoughts,
until knowledge will arrive.
They closed my eyes,
and cold stars would align.

In the city the lights are many,
but I can't find it amusing anymore.
I watch the night unfold and vanish,
stood on the highway.

So hey,
let's celebrate, there's no need to cry.
No one can comfort you, there's no one around.

But Baby,
Can you hear the sky blowing at night?
It's our wealth!

And I'm ready to go if you're already there.
Saw your trail in the snow,
did you find the way to freedom?

It's the last day I'm here,
can you hear the sky fall down?
Collapsing over ravaged ground!

The sickness rising,
the towering wall, going for the fire.
Found the signs of the road I was looking for.
Bend my desire and fade from their sight.

The dents is all that I had,
the tidings from our fading sun.
Made me wiser!

Take your time,
everyone will want to go:
Step by errant step!

Degraded my heart,
that's what you do when you have nothing more to find!
Degraded my heart,
that's what you do when you have nothing more to find!

The dents is all that I had,
the tidings from our fading sun.
Made me wiser!

So hey,
let's celebrate, there's no need to cry.
No one can comfort you, there's no one around.

But Baby,
Can you hear the sky blowing at night?
It's our wealth!

And I'm ready to go if you're already there.
Saw your trail in the snow,
did you find the way to freedom?

It's the last day I'm here,
can you hear the sky fall down?
Collapsing over ravaged ground!
7. Serac (7:25)
Well, these are the words that you won't find.
This closure is not what you had in mind.
Commemorate and relive the harm.
The treason conclude.

Lest we forgive what did bring us here.
This closure is not what you had in mind.
I try to remember you as it was, fragments.

Ghost of different shades,
cold day up ahead.
I glide away into the dark,
two hours till morning's due.

And I wait here for you,
to see you rise like the tide.
Graced and admired.

I fall away across the dark.
It will inspire, fell inside!

Touched upon deadened virtue.
Made it burn through weights of courage.
Conformed to all those already hidden.
Their crystal ground!

Steel made wall, see the barrier stand tall.
Ascend through the air and find a heart yet undefined.

Well, these are the words that you won't find.
This closure is not what you had in mind.
Commemorate and relive the harm.
The treason conclude.

Lest we forgive what did bring us here.
This closure is not what you had in mind.
I try to remember you as it was, fragments.

Source of withering code of dust, of deceit.
Can't proceed without a guide.
Intuition abandoned you, I'm clouding the view.

See you rise like the tide.
Graced and admired.
I fall away across the dark.
It will inspire, fell inside!

Touched upon deadened virtue.
Made it burn through weights of courage.
Conformed to all those already hidden.

Conformed to all those already hidden.
Their crystal ground!
8. Last Song Before the Fade (5:01)
My memories like deleted film.
Awareness of this fire, kerosene.
Ignite the trial of my mind.

Above the horizon now,
upon the freezing tracks.
Grasp for the embers of my life.
You came back but so did I.

Who's in control?
Spite, so cold in this light.

Reflective summary froze me in a frame.
My time had run out before the future came.
Depart from insight, breach was made.

How could I ever forget our days?
I drown in silver, set to go.
Unafraid into the blue, blue waves.
Though I had hoped to hear your voice there.

Last song before the fade!

Who's in control?
Spite, so cold in this light.

Arise to other heights now!
Make me transcend into your still heart.
Beyond this world of stone,
let me surrender to the streams of nought.

Last song before the fade!

Sick days behind me now.
Winter wails through the chest.
Dim the lights as I pass, will be no harm.

Arise to other heights now!
Make me transcend into your still heart.
Beyond this world of stone,
let me surrender to the streams of nought.

Last song before the fade!
9. Shifts (4:54)
Spiraling nights in the void.
Weathered coat and a dagger.
If I dream back my youth I can still hear you sing.
A voice that will die on a mountain.

And I fear that I've stayed here just a little too long.

I had to go where you couldn't follow.
In my weariness I still hear you singing in my mind.

All the fortunes they took away!

The shifting earth beneath us.
Nothing to observe!
The clouds at our feet.
Nothing to observe!

The sun was made a jewel.
Nothing to observe!
When at night it did sleep.
Nothing to observe!

Cast in a trench of fire.
I can see the sky is a ceiling.
And when my heart dies down,
I am long gone on the fields of summer's green.
Away from fall and famine!

In my weariness I still hear you singing in my mind.
All the fortunes they took away!

The shifting earth beneath us.
Nothing to observe!
The clouds at our feet.
Nothing to observe!

The sun was made a jewel.
Nothing to observe!
When at night it did sleep.

I am in every season,
the one you have always known.
Life did not reward you!
So find your way to the river and let go.

The shifting earth beneath us.
Nothing to observe!
The clouds at our feet.
Nothing to observe!

The sun was made a jewel.
Nothing to observe!
When at night it did sleep.
Nothing to observe!
10. The Night Subscriber (6:10)
I am ready to find the lost way to vanishing days.
I write words void of worth, in my youth I will always stay.
There's room for every lie they put on my shoulders,
I let it inside.

Inseparable growth marks us still.
Abundance won't come, purge our will.

Cut out and resign.
Overtaken and left behind.
It's in our racing hearts,
the things we never let go of.

They spill into my love!

I'm thinking if torpor had left my soul, voices would sing!
I would submit my heart to the sentiment within,
and let go of the night that is abiding here.

Old songs lost their grace.
Send some light back to this place.
There's room for every lie they put on my shoulders,
I let it inside.

Inseparable growth marks us still.
Abundance won't come, purge our will.

Purge our will...

It's in our racing hearts,
the things we never let go of.

Cut out and resign.
Overtaken and left behind.
It's in our racing hearts,
the things we never let go of.

Abiding here!

I'm thinking if torpor had left my soul, voices would sing!
I would submit my heart to the sentiment within,
and let go of the night that is abiding here.
11. Pale Flag (4:23)
Our burden fell down,
once shared but waged war on my mind.
So told my love farewell now.
No loyalty to find.

When you vanish over the skies.
I am forsaken beneath the ground I lie.
Was banished from this hurtful life.
I am forlorn, all dreams have turned to strife.

Winter winds take flight,
circling over my grave.
A haunting voice amidst the trees,
rising up across the sea.

You vanish over the skies.
I am forsaken beneath the ground I lie.
Was banished from this hurtful life.
I am forlorn, all dreams have turned to strife.

You vanish over the skies.
Survival, it was destined for your name.
I am forsaken beneath the ground I lie.

Was banished from this hurtful life.
Compassion, brings you here when the rain falls on mine.
I am forlorn, all dreams have turned to strife.
12. Passer (6:25)
You came in to my circle of trust, arriving late.
You could have done better, but it's okay!
Contemplating summer and what could have been.

Who knows?

But I fear you took the words from my drunken heart,
and they're vanishing with you.
Closing down, leaking my inactivated mind into you.

Memorial!
Let's put everything underground now.
Your void eyes!
How long until you come back around?

5 a.m., I'm fading!
Ghost on the pavement.
I celebrate futility within.
I am wretched, all colors blur to one.

You did well to make me believe!
It was a way to survive, to run a scar inside.

Ascend now, as your chain of rust has swayed me.
Observing dead air, so worn out.
Contemplating summer and what could have been.

Who knows?

But I fear you took the words from my drunken heart,
and they're vanishing with you.
Closing down, leaking my inactivated mind into you.

Memorial!
Let's put everything underground now.
Your void eyes!
How long until you come back around?

5 a.m., I'm fading!
Ghost on the pavement.
I celebrate futility within.
You did well to make me believe!
It was a way to survive.

You took your gear and hit the trail,
I was there by the runway.
Above spires and buildings now,
you have passed the horizon.

In time another star will rise, dissimulation.
On the wind comes the message now,
you have passed the horizon.
Divide like wings!
