Between Dream and Nightmare Lyrics

(6)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Silent Scream (10:46)
Lying in her bed

Looking at the stars

Through her room window

She’s staying in the dark

Angel how sad there’s no light

She sees herself in the mirror

While her beauty is sleeping in her arms

But suddenly it disappears

And the wound spreads in her heart

She woke up in the dawn and caressed her son

And she tried to muffle her cries

With a sad smile

Angel how sad there’s no light

Lonely in this moonless night



I walk proud without fear

My decision is clear

There’s always hope in me

God give me the faith I need

My old veins are bleeding

Something hurts inside of me

But I am still alive I am still living

I can hear His voice in my ear



People look at me in their eyes

Only fear and death

Surrounded by whom I love but

I feel like a stranger that makes me lose my breath

My tears are falling; I am down in my knees

While I am begging please

Waiting for your mercy



People look at me in their eyes

Only fear and death

Surrounded by whom I love but

I feel like a stranger that makes me lose my breath

I’ll keep my head up to this gleam

Of light that you shine on me

In the dark I’ll follow this enlightening way

Strait ahead it leads to you

I will try to find you

In every part of me

I know you are here

And it’s really true

Angel how sad there’s no light

Lonely in this moonless night

She missed her bright, shining smile

And she felt like she wants to die





My tears are falling; I am down in my knees

While I am begging please

Waiting for your mercy

Forgiveness is what I need

Open your door and let me in

Please don’t let me bleed



The glass of suffering that I drink

Is making me bleak

But I know there is only you

Hearing my silent scream





My tears are falling; I am down in my knees

While I am begging please

Waiting for your mercy

Forgiveness is what I need

Open your door and let me in

Please don’t let me bleed



The glass of suffering that I drink

Is making me bleak

But I know is only you

Hearing my silent scream
2. Living in a Lie (8:00)
From a dream I wake

In another one I dive

Escaping from living in a lie

Seeking the truth behind

The smokes of their lies

To have a meaning for our miserable life



In fog I’m lost

I’m turning into a ghost

Exhausted of oppression, killing too fast

Emptiness inside

Reality is dried

Leaves crunched under feet then went to die



In the new age of technology

Inside the prison of censored ideologies

No place for thinking nor defying

You are fated to believe

Conducted to achieve

All the images and words which they give



Naked privacy, strange intimacy

I’m changging my taste

Is this my liberty ?

I’m dragging my religion down the path

I’m losing my culture

Switching to simplicity



Faces of truth, versions of reality

Lack of any real bite

Subjectivity, no neutrality

Blabing secrets of all the living

Also the dead are involved

in this world of faded morality



In the new age of technology

No place for thinking nor defying

You are fated to believe

Conducted to achieve

All the images and words which they give
3. Silence (5:05)
Hey friend, don’t you remember the good times we had together

No troubles, no wars, life wasn’t bad

No killing, no blood, nothing was sad

Only safe places and smiling faces we knew no fear only happy tears

Now, only scream you can hear

only lies and fake smiles

so many good byes

Broken hearts


Ain’t sad

Ain’t bad

What’s in your head


How can you declare peace by war and you are from the battlefield so far

Many shaking hands

And many pretend

But one day your comedy will end

Yes one day your comedy will end


United nations ONU

Nothing is true

Camp David and G8 federals and CIA

Bullshit of USA

Many dollars are wasted on your

Millitary demons

Pretending saving

The humanity under your uniforms of violence

But when we want to talk

When we want to scream

Always silence


Ain’t sad

Ain’t bad

What’s in your head


How can you declare peace by war and you are from the battlefield so far

Many shaking hands

And many pretend

But one day your comedy will end

Yes one day your comedy will end
4. Judgement Day (9:11)
I die a little each time I get down on my knees

Praying all the night until the first sunrise

I cry and I cry until the blood runs down from my eyes

They want to push us down but we always try

To carry on



My head got sick from their speeches

Words that poison your brain

How long shall you stay listening to the mermaid cry?

Fake hopes that get you down

How can you declare peace by war

And you are from the battlefield so far?



Anyway, no escape from the judgement day

When the planets are dispersed

And the sepulchres are overthrown

Then your whole body will speak

About what you said and what you did

Shiver spreads in your veins

It’s the end, no issue, it’s too late

Then you will wish you would have never been born

At all, at all, at all

Why killing each other, and losing a dear

Just for saying, HERO, and gaining something

That one day will disappear

Sing angels, sing little birds

Sing your glory, no hurts

Only blessing lights now



ain’t sad when someone dies

Doesn’t hurt when someone tells you lies

ain’t awful somebody bleeds

ain’t strange when you can find the one you need

ain’t amazing how fast the promises can be broken

ain’t powerful when the words aren’t spoken

Just before I end my breathing

I wish I could live in a world with no fear

I wish we could get there, and get the earth clean

Sailing across the oceans of our dreams

And get the happiness here

In my heart
5. Between Dream and Nightmare (15:01)
Part I : A Moment For Intimacy


eyes of passion

pure dream of a child

one more time I remember

one more time I cry

I used to love but only

Scketches of my memory

Dream and nightmare

World of my ultimate fantasy



Dark hair, time of glory

Little fingers, deep intimacy

She was an angel who used to play with me

The kit flies away

And my memories remain

My life seems over

Before it has begun


Part II : Blitzkrieg


b/w dream and nightmare I live

outside in my reality I can’t breathe

beyond the borders I reach the mountain’s peak

Inside I am asleep yet I am so afraid



Escaping to another dimension out of this world

The shadow of fear was hovering over me



Beyond the borders I reach the mountain’s peak

Inside I am asleep yet I am so afraid



For a while I imagine

how my funeral could seem ?

But suddenly she approches me



Taking a kite

She took me by my hand

and we began to run



A big present in the sky

With no strings it flies

Covers the neighbour’s house

The shadow of fear is here

The secret is revealed


« instrumental »


Her death in my mind

Gun in my hand

Hate in my heart

I think about the end



As my pain and grief begin to flow

Never more my candle will glow

A lapse of memory can only erase the show

From my heart,my mind and my soul



The hunter was hunger

He caught the child with his dirty fingers

Biltzkrieg, exhale

See your crimes, listen to our anger



As my pain and grief begin to flow

Never more my candle will glow

A lapse of memory can only erase the show

From my heart,my mind and my soul



Take me to the light , I am loosing the will to live

Dying in my arms, your tears glide on my face



Her body is down on the ground,I will stand on my feet

Give me the will to fight, Just revenge is on my mind



What did I do wrong , end my pain let me breathe

her body was rotted in the field, my soul is stained with blood



I am the chosen one to suffer, I am the chosen one to live

Trapped in my nightmares, forsaken in my dream
6. Between Hell and Paradise (5:45)
You were the sun in my life

And you were the beats of my heart

I saw the spring in your eyes

My love for you was so hot

Because I thought that you had the same feeling as me

I am leaving in the real misery

Because of the pain you caused to me

All the good times and all the sweet melodies

We passed together but you broke them easily

You left my heart for another one

So tell me how you can’t see

All the love I gave it to you

And all I said was true

Tell me what I can say

Tell me what I should do



You left me falling in this life

Between hell and paradise

So tell me why, you made me blind

You know I’ve had enough pain

But I will try to find my way

Like the sun which rises in a new day

But it remains the same, like my pain



I always do my best to satisfy you

I thought you loved me as I still do

Tell me how come you can’t see

The difference between you and me

You know girl all the problems we passed by

It’s like every couple it’s the same life

But you broke my heart and I felt the fire

Burning inside every night



You left me falling in this life

Between hell and paradise

So tell me why, you made me blind

You know I’ve had enough pain

But I will try to find my way

Like the sun which rises in a new day

But it remains the same, like my pain



I remember that Friday evening, stored in my memory

When I called you on the phone

And your voice was so empty

No feelings, no love, no sympathy

And your words weren’t spoken tenderly

Were like thunder breaking my dignity

And I hang up the phone desperately



You left me falling in this life

Between hell and paradise

So tell me why, you made me blind

You know I’ve had enough pain

But I will try to find my way

Like the sun which rises in a new day

But it remains the same, like my pain
