The Arrival Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Arrival (0:58)
2. Revival (4:28)
You are sticking the knife again
In the back of an innocent

Hiding from the daylight, living on the run
Such a devil's son
Flames from the oblivion, sheltering your soul
The unholy one

You'll be dethroned by time
Shadows upon your life will be thrown

I can see you are lurking there
Mocking the truth, never learning

Hiding from the daylight, living on the run
Such a devil's son
Flames from the oblivion, sheltering your soul
The unholy one

You'll be dethroned by time
Shadows upon your life will be thrown

There will be a day of revival
When the dust will cover all the madness
I'm fighting my way to the promised land
With venegeance by my side

Rewriting some pages of the book
Of my history – finally free...

There will be a day of revival
When the dust will cover all the madness
I'm fighting my way to the promised land
With venegeance by my side – revival
3. Broken Alliance (4:17)
This tranquil palace so unknown
Pallid sculptures in empty chambers
Remembrance from the days bygone
This forgotten realm, secrets within
Gone in the morrow, the wind plays a silent melody

The hunger and the greed, from the gardens of sin
No remedy to heal the wounds

Oh I feel, tears of the sacred town
Descending silently, painting the tragedy
Deep within, behind these walls of stone
Shadows are dancing on, eternally
Broken alliance

Resounding phrases, murmuring rhymes
The hours are breathing the motionless air
No solace from the waters below
Dominion of the sacred now forever lost
No brighter days to come
Adrift here in the wasteland

The hunger and the greed, from the gardens of sin
No remedy to heal the wounds

Oh I feel, tears of the sacred town
Descending silently, painting the tragedy
Deep within, behind these walls of stone
Shadows are dancing on, eternally
Broken alliance

Oh I feel, tears of the sacred town
Descending silently, painting the tragedy
Deep within, behind these walls of stone
Shadows are dancing on, eternally
Broken alliance
4. Whispers (4:46)
The flames of the candle is fading away
No light in the darkness
The mystic veils are opened again
No chance, no escape

Behind the misty gates of dawn
I'm drifting in silence
The shadows are twisting within my heart

I'm feeling so strange
Here between the night and day
The silence is broken
Whispers in the moonlight are calling me again

This narrow path under my barefoot
Only my presence to cling on to
Surrounded by stagnant eternity
Nocturnal dimension

One step further makes me to feel the warmth
Every beat, every moment
The shadows are twisting within my heart
Oh yeah, twisting again

I'm feeling so strange
Here between the night and day
The silence is broken
Whispers in the moonlight are calling me again

I'm feeling so strange
Here between the night and day
The silence is broken
Whispers in the moonlight are calling me again
5. The Invisible Touch (4:25)
Stress inside, tearing my mind, always within me
Suddenly something's carrying the burdens
Far from my soul

Innocent child, healing the world
With weight of her shoulders
Staring at me, despite her pain
Losing me so gently

Just like a miracle you gave me the keys to carry on, for eternally
You have you sacrifice your soul
On this long road made of stone
You got the power, the invisible touch
The power of miracle, never, never let it go!

Hidden tears in her solitude, no soulmate to trust in
Sacrifice, there's is no way to cheat the destiny's path

Innocent child, healing the world
With weight of her shoulders
Staring at me, despite her pain
Losing me so gently

Just like a miracle you gave me the keys to carry on, for eternally
You have you sacrifice your soul
On this long road made of stone
You got the power, the invisible touch
The power of miracle, never, never let it go!

Innocent child, healing the world
With weight of her shoulders
Staring at me, despite her pain
Losing me so gently

Just like a miracle you gave me the keys to carry on, for eternally
You have you sacrifice your soul
On this long road made of stone
You got the power, the invisible touch
The power of miracle, never, never let it go!
6. Forgotten Path (7:44)
Towards the end of time we're strangers to ourselves
Driven by the wheels os tatic rationalism
We're feeding the machine
Our eyes are closed emotions paralyzed
Too busy and too wise to hear
The crying voices from inside

The more we live for material
The less we know what it is for
Building castles out of sand
Until the water washes all away

Oh why to rush, why to run?
These pain-ridden hearts in the rhythm of routine
Still somewhere deep inside
Empirical unconscious, open mind
Somewhere deep in your mind
There lies a road unwalked, forgotten path

The more we live for material
The less we know what it is for
Building castles out of sand
Until the water washes all away

Enter into the stage where logic has no place
The darker side of your hemispheres
Here in the ride side of your mind
Thereality is no more the same
Riding on the wings of your dreams

Enter into the stage where logic has no place
The darker side of your hemispheres
Here in the ride side of your mind
Thereality is no more the same
Riding on the wings of your dreams
7. Halls of Eternity (5:30)
I ponder, around I wonder
Weeping in the floor of a silken chamber

There is no future, there is no past
A royal dream that didn't last
Like a dying ember from the days of happiness
Inside these halls of eternity

The abundance turned into desolation
Only empty walls echoing the pain
My restless mind is full filled with questions
That never will have the answers why!

There is no future, there is no past
A royal dream that didn't last
Like a dying ember from the days of happiness
Inside these halls of eternity

As black as an ebony raven
The tempters from their ominous haven

There is no future, there is no past
A royal dream that didn't last
Like a dying ember from the days of happiness
Inside these halls of eternity
8. Liquid Hours (6:11)
Within the hourglass I see pieces of myself
The sand is creeping though my fingers, years are passing by

Drifting in a tidal sea
Wings of time are guiding me so far
There is no turning bacl to yesterday
We're heading for the final strand in different ways

Now is forever, forever is now
These liquid hours are spinning away
Time in the motion, the motion in time
Moments of history are turning into tomorrows

I stand amid the road, blind to see what is to come
Curtains of the truth before the obscurity

Drifting in a tidal sea
Wings of time are guiding me so far
There is no turning bacl to yesterday
We're heading for the final strand in different ways

Now is forever, forever is now
These liquid hours are spinning away
Time in the motion, the motion in time
Moments of history are turning into tomorrows

Is there a window in... – is there a window in time?
Parallel kind of life... – parallel kind of life somewhere?

My secret place where the future so unseen...
...is written in my dreams at night, in my dreams at night

Now is forever, forever is now
These liquid hours are spinning away
Time in the motion, the motion in time
Moments of history are turning into tomorrows
9. Masquerade (8:27)
No place to hide, no life, no sympathy
Scarlet horror, terror, the uninvited guest

Welcome inside my friend
Just wear your mask today
And join for evermore this
Never-ending masquerade

Take a glass of wine
And dance with the music
Cause there's no reason to grieve no more
No more, no more!

Masked illusion – palace of wildest dreams
Behind the gates of iron

Magnificent revel
So far from fragile reality

Welcome inside my friend
Just wear your mask today
And join for evermore this
Never-ending masquerade

Take a glass of wine
And dance with the music
Cause there's no reason to grieve no more
No more, no more!

Masked illusion – palace of wildest dreams
Behind the gates of iron

Clock on the wall, the seventh hall
Unmasking the death, as the last guest falls
