Walk the Earth Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Man & Machine (5:28)
When I'm driving down the road
I want to feel the speed
I push my machine to the max,
This is what I need
My fingers gripping, grip so tight,
My foot is to the floor
My blood is racing through my veins,
This is my reward

Test my fate by living on the edge (on the edge)
And if I die I die just like so many others

[Chorus]
Man and machine -
I can't hide my need for speed, I'm the man
Man and machine -
And I'll try fast as can be

My heart is beating with such might
I feel it might explode
Throwing caution to the wind
It flattens down the road
The sirens screaming, scream so loud,
I laugh and sing along
The engine makes a noise so sweet,
As sweet as any sound

I feel my hair is standing on its edge (on its edge)
I lose control just around the bend

[Chorus]

Tires squealing, ripping metal,
It's over in seconds,
It was so orchestral
My body now is beaten and battered,
As fast as it could be
Was all that had mattered

[Solo]

Man and machine -
I can't hide my need for speed, I'm the man
Man and machine -
If I die don't cry for me, I'm the man
Man and machine -
Oh, we're as one, man and machine

Man and machine...
2. Walk the Earth (6:29)
If somehow I find the words
Saying what I feel inside right now
It's quiet, no sound
My voice seems to become silent somehow

If we're alone and then you ask me
Am I honest with myself I'll tell you "no"
Do you believe in ever after?
I struggle with the answers I can't show

If I look into the mirror I have to turn away
I fool the disconnected
I'm the man I cannot face
I've lived amongst expansion
Under no uncertain terms
It's finally catching me somehow
Oh will I ever learn

And now it seems my days are numbered
My fate is closing in on me I know
Do you think that I am shallow?
Will I kneel before the beast that lies below

[Chorus]
I walk the earth,
Image of my world
Come feel the noise,
It's through a voice unheard
I walk the earth
I've fallen far from grace
Come feel the noise,
My shell's an empty space
I walk the earth

Oh, hanging on the balance,
It's the path that I have led
Keeps them all believing
This is know that I have said
Uncertain is the outcome,
It appears it's not all lost
This is what I've chosen
Most of the time it plays out wrong

If we're alone that's when I'll ask you
Are you honest with yourself you'll tell me "no"
And you believe in ever after
I know the answer now just say it's so

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus]

I walk the earth...
3. Point of No Return (3:53)
When you're backed into a corner
When you feel that you are standing there alone
What's the point of even trying
When you know that you will never make it home

You've crossed the line you've really messed up
You took the risk you're in an unknown place
A wrong decision that went too far
You're feeling lost you're in disgrace

You're at the point of no return (point of no return)
You're at the point of all you're suffering (point of all you're suffering)
You're at the point of no return

When you feel the pressure building
Weighing heavy on your mind and on your soul
That is when you need to think straight
It's the time when you should never lose control

When you finally wake up, you cry a tear that shakes up
The inner workings of your twisted mind
Is it someone who will hold you? Oh someone who will scold you
Someone who will talk sense into your life
When your dreams have failed you, oh the world moves on without you
Is there anyone that you can turn to now?
When you finally wake, up, you cry a tear that shakes up
The inner workings of your twisted mind
4. In From the Dark (4:46)
A place there was light, a place that was free from the dark
A place that would show all that was hidden in time
An idea so real, an idea of what to say
An idea that's placing us all in the paths from which we had strayed

We cannot be what we are, with no one to tell us all
We cannot be what we are, with no one to tell us where we are

Oh tell us where we are

In from the dark, in from the cold outside
In from the dark, I'll step into the light
In from the dark

A new day is breaking, the hazy light lays on the street
This is my chance to end, my chance to end all the tears that I weep
Have I forgotten, forgotten just how it began
As I was watching myself in the mirror of defeat I got lost in the end
5. The King of Fools (4:46)
It happens to the best,
This he cannot change
But most of all was
His intentions weren't that strange
He says he's only human, no one ever knows
It's what he means to say
At night before he starts the show

He can't change his past, no one ever can
Tomorrow no one knows his name
He thinks he is the man

[Chorus:]
He's the king of fools
The master of one
As he stands there all alone
He's the king of fools
The master of one
He's not a man of virtue,
He's not a man at all

He sets a bad example
Does he think he's right?
Trying to escape his past
He isn't worth the fight
The devil made him do it!
This is what he says
Always doing stupid things
Is how he makes his way

He can't change his past, no one ever can
Tomorrow no one knows his name
He thinks he is the man

[Chorus]

He can't wait, he's in a fog
His mind is almost gone, is he afraid?
Oh, does he know just what it is that's wrong

[Chorus]
6. The Child Within (4:06)
Always searching for something, always searching for clues
Always searching for something else like the child that I out grew

I'm afraid to find, I never will return
I, I'll hope I'll see, just how it used to be

I wish for the past to be there for me like it was

Searching for the child within
A moment in time
Searching for the child within
A child with nothing to hide

All the visions my mind could see
Did they ever come true?
All the visions my mind created, was it something I out grew?
7. Goodby My Ghost (3:46)
I stand at the edge of myself and my hell
The gravity of the situation shows itself
I can never stay focused, the voice deep inside
It's screaming to me I have not failed to run and hide

Goodbye to you, goodbye my ghost
(Goodbye to you my ghost)
Goodbye to you, goodbye my ghost
(Goodbye to you my ghost)

Have you ever felt crazy, like someone you didn't know?
Now that you're questioning yourself down to the bones
Overwhelmed by the life we lead and demons we have shown

As I sit and stare, it's a statement of my mind
Release me
As I close my eyes I'm drifting through the time
I can see you breath as I can feel your death

The memory of you will fade away, I hope forever
8. Save Me From Myself (4:01)
I'm talking to myself, at times the words aren't clear
Another voice will say to me, what I wish not to hear
That's why I try to make believe, the future no mistakes
The edge of burning wasted fire, the warmth there is no trace

How did it finally come to this?
How did I wish us figure of shadows?
I've opened the door to show a secret deep within

Someone save me from myself
Someone save me from the darkness that's within
Someone save me from myself
and with the darkness so profound, will I survive?

This is the fight I wish would end, I know it's up to me
And finally I would be content, the changes no more I will see
This is the mane that I would be
Forever till the end
Why am I digging in so deep? Will I ever be my own friend?

Why did it finally come to this?
Why did I wish us figure of shadows?
I opened the door to show a secret deep within

I feel my days are numbers
It is a number you can't change
When is my day of reckoning?
You have to wait like all the rest
Damned if I do, damned if I don't
You are the one they always blame
How can I save my dignity?
Someone to save me from myself

Will I survive?
9. My Independence Day (3:56)
Bleeding, you've opened up a wound
This is just what I wanted you to know, I've paid my dues
Leaving, the only way to know
If I can stand upon my feet, it's been so long ago

Free, this is my intention
I shout, from the highest mountain

My independence day, this is the only way
I will never hide again
All my dreams were through
You know this isn't about you
I will never run and hide again

Breathing, there's something in the air
I'd blame it on the rain it was someone else's affair
Believe me, when I say it's getting old
The desperate way you look at me, you look into my soul
I want you to know, I've nothing to show
When a beauty was a mistress I'm a slave deep down below

Free, this is my intention
I shout, from the highest mountain
10. Blind Leading the Blind (4:01)
You see the two in the corner, not easy to explain
What the other is thinking, you know it's always in vain

Don't you know that when the other wrong
Someone always tells them so
And that it doesn't matter what they're trying to say

The blind leading the blind
No wonder nothing else gets done, there is each others way

They always seem to be leaders, one political mess
When all the votes have been counted
Oh, there's one that's thumping his chest

Don't you know the winner walks away
The loser somehow gets to play

The blind leading the blind
No wonder nothing else gets done, there is each others way
The blind leading the blind
It's a reason there's so many dead, they're dying everyday

We all stand here, opinions in our minds
They're tying up our hands, and cover up our eyes
We share our heads dismayed, when they play that song
Then they drape the flag upon the caskets when they fall

It's no wonder nothing else gets done, there in each others, in each others way!
11. Running Through the Fire (3:32)
I find that all it takes,
A strike to start the fire,
I find that all it takes is just a strike to start the fire
I stand there mesmerized,
Right before his eyes
I stand there mesmerized by all the beauty and the death,
Beauty and the death

[Chorus:]
We are running through the fire
As it's lighting up the sky
We are running through the fire
Please don't ask me why

If I died within,
Within your arms
If I died within your arms
I don't think I would care
Oh, will I wait until,
Until the ash on earth
Will I wait until the ash on earth
Will crush my stare, my stare...

[Chorus]

Side by side we fight till the end
An alliance we have to defend
Side by side we fight till the end
An alliance we have to defend
12. Picture of a Shadow (2:53)
Once a painter drew my face
Almost put me in a grave
He was old, out of his mind
A craziness that made him blind

He must have read between the lines
He was a man with great disguise
He fixed a stare into my eyes
Oh, he's the one saw through my lies

Where is my face?

Oh, pictures of a shadow

What I have seen will make you run
It is not what I have done
I don't believe in you I'm not afraid
It all comes back but yet in spades

My eyes have stopped but can't forget
The memories mad today of men
The words are written here in black
Now there is no turning back

Where is my face?

Oh, pictures of a shadow

If evil had a face tonight, be sure my dear it would be mine
If evil had a place to walk, Hell would arise and leave you blind
If evil had a face tonight, be sure my dear it would be mine
If evil had a place to walk, Hell would arise and leave you blind
