Skin of the Earth Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Multitude (3:40)
I wipe the dust from my face
Sand is burning underneath my feet.
The warmth that I embrace
Just getting colder
“What is behind the storm?”
A question I don’t want to answer
The great unknown
Fear that grips like a shadow

I can see the violence
Coming from the silence
I can hear resistance
Calling from the distance

Why you kill what you fear
Betray all you hold dear
This reign of terror will end
For those who chose for defense

So many died in your name
No questions asked, no mercy shown
Who bows their head in shame?
Now the multitude has grown
What is behind the storm?
Fear that grips like a shadow
2. Rise from the Flames (3:37)
There you are, down on the ground
Curled up and weary
Buried your face inside your hands
So grey and dark

All that you once had before
It is all gone
Now it is time to stand up

Live again, breathe in the air, rise from the ashes
Free your soul, reclaim your life, rise from the flame

No need to wallow in misery
The world lies before you
Bridges are burned, there’s no turning back
So much you can do
3. The Attic (4:45)
Silently she moves, her dress sweeping the stairs.
One stroke of light through a secret window.
Everyone has forgotten there was a time,
someone lived here and so
The wind, it sighs and the night falls.

She will remain when everyone goes.
She will reveal what she could not show
She will stop aging and she will not grow.

When she enters the room the old memories go fly
They break in two-million pieces and disolve in the sky
Everyone has forgotten there was a time,
someone lived here and so
The wind, it sighs and the night falls.
4. My Better Part (3:48)
When I wake up I want you far and away.
Grab all your stuff; you are not here to stay.
Take all you want as long as you’re gone.

You couldn’t take my better part away from me.

All this time you, you made me feel like I was the bad one.
You tried to make me hate myself even more.
You have made art of tearing me apart.

You couldn’t take my better part away from me
I realise the girl you loved wasn’t me

Now that you’re gone I moved along and feel free
I realise the girl you loved wasn’t me
You couldn’t take my better part away from me
I realise the girl you loved wasn’t me
5. Like a Shadow (4:40)
Like a shadow, unnoticed
Sullen and restrained
So much hatred and fighting
Till nothing else remained
Now things are going to change for me
I’m walking out that door
My bags are packed with everything
That I’ve been living for
You will never see me again

With open mind I leave the past behind
To live another day
Without the fear without the ties that bind
I’ll be on my way

I carried, the weight of your
intoxicated life
I remember, you’ve forgotten
The struggle and the strife
So easy to drown those thoughts away
But they can not be ignored
And now there is nothing left to say
I’m walking out that door
You will never see me again
6. Two Old Trees (3:52)
Two souls intwined, like the branches of two old trees.
Near the bank of the river, that’s where he was found.
Eyes looked up from the ground.

The woods hold so many tales
Half forgotten, half remained
They tell their own version
Of what happened that day

He saw her bathing, didn’t mean to watch.
Her anger grew.
Devoured by his own hounds
They didn’t know it was him.
7. We Love Our Heroes (3:48)
A voice for the masses
A man that could build a bridge
We made him more than a man could be
To say he could falter was considered sacrilege
A hero can never be free

Crucified by your own peers
They once held you dear

We love our heroes until they fall
Then we are the first ones to cast the stone
We love our heroes more when they die
Then we are the first ones to mourn and cry

Broken down and ridiculed
Fallen off your pedestal
We laughed about the tales of your failure
And when our hero passed away
We all turned around to say
“the deepest respect for your grandeur”

Those who have mocked you for years
Cry crocodile tears
8. Mushroom Wall (5:24)
Feels like you’re allways in the dark,
and you are going nowhere.
Where will it lead from here.

See the rabbit fall- urge to have it all
Eat the mushroomwall- grow into your paws

Let the wind blow, listen close
Feel where you should go
Moon is watching over you
Sunlight feeding your soul

It’s going faster then you crave
The walls are closing in now
They’re pushing you into the ground
9. Liquid Clocks (4:27)
Floating tigers above a naked girl.
Piano standing in a dark green world.
Entrance is a woman with curtain hair.
Women trees dissolving in thin air.

Wandering through your enchanted dreams.
Nothing really is what it seems.
Why wake up and leave this place of peace.
Never tell me, how to wake up, please.

Liquid clocks and trains running through walls.
Growing paws and noses that are doors.
Never told me how I could stay warm.
Wake me up before the day is dawn.
10. One More Day (4:35)
Miles of freeway before me
I sleep while the engine roars
The distance between us grows larger
Even larger than before
Where will I be tomorrow?
Those are the things I tend to forget
I just listen to the engine
Trying to clear my head

I’ll be home real soon
Please don’t worry, just hold on
Only one more day
I’ll be home ‘round noon
Been a long time, don’t forget me
And what we have

Maybe I’ll call around midnight
Directly after the show
Not sure if I’m able to make it
You know how these things go
Paris looks so lovely
Under the rising sun
Wish you were here to see this
We’ll go there when this is all done

I’ll be home real soon
Please don’t worry, just hold on
Only one more day
I’ll be home ‘round noon
Been a long time, don’t forget me
And what we have
11. The Edge of Insanity (4:07)
There is a truth in the words that are spoken
By the ones gone astray
Couldn’t believe that this beauty deceived him
In her own charming way’

Drifting away on the wings of the sea

Deep dark blue sky, keep your eyes open
Ships passing by, hearts will be broken

Far from his home still in search of his beauty
He had once seen before
Drove him to the edge of insanity
Couldn’t believe anymore
