Matriarch Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Nyu (1:55)
Enslaved in a place that's referred to as home
We are all too afraid to be cast out alone
Our strength is unknown
They claim the end to be imminent

Though we live on
Infinite

We must make amends
There is only one way that this can end

Enslaved in a place
We are too afraid
Enslaved in a place we call home

I'm still fucking numb

We must make amends
There is only one way that this can end
2. Leeloo (2:51)
Through all of the change all stays the same
Monotonous patterns create the waves which take over shore
Leaving you lie in the wake
Through all of the change all stays the same

Your request for higher ground is everlasting
We dwell in the flatlands moving about as nomads
Higher ground is only found within
This arrives to no surprise

Still the night hears the cries of a man with a wounded passion

If this is what I seek
I shall seek no longer
The truth is wretched
The devil in disguise

Will I watch you die

If this is what I seek
Then I seek no longer
The truth is wretched
A devil in disguise

Will I watch you die

Will I watch you die [6x]

A devil in disguise

Still the night hears the cries of a man with a wounded passion

We dwell in the flatlands moving about as nomads
Higher ground is only found within
This arrives to no surprise
Still the night hears the cries

Failure is a lie
Failure is a lie
Failure is a lie
Failure is a lie
3. Ellie (3:03)
These kind words have adopted us
Accepted without question
We live to love
These kind words have adopted us
Accepted without question
We live to love
We love to live
A peaceful gift

We claim to be grateful
Though it isn't certain
Standing in pure darkness praying for the light
Pondering recent frames
Allowing access to mistakes I may have made

Where are they
Where are they now

As I stare into a whole made up of dismay
They now face me
Gazing blankly into my eyes

All at once shattering
Leaving only the shards to be replaced

I am putrid
Lay aside the good that I have done

But I am alive

As I stare into a whole made up of dismay
They now face me
Gazing blankly into my eyes

Only the shards to be replaced with guilt
I am putrid
4. Lucy (2:55)
Fallacy is disease
Watched over and guarded

Caught between life and pride
(Carry us)
Rupture the means of those who hold power

Our enforcers have failed
What if failure was always imminent
The future consumes negligence of the past

Our platform bears and bestows intellect
What was once feared is now embraced

This is a time of transcendence
Our ascension, an immaculate rise
Shall reign in the new world

We are forever
We are always
To this, there is no end

Our platform bears and bestows intellect
What was once feared is now embraced
The answers are stitched in the bones of society
5. Mikasa (3:09)
Before me there stands an opportunity
There for the taking In this moment – this exact moment
I shall prepare myself
To face a monster of which only I may conquer
Conjure the power bestowed upon our souls
Conjure the power

Align the stones to form a message in the sand
I will never relinquish
It is written in the sand

Which lies below me
Staring back at a helpless man
I've done all I can
It lies in the hands of those who seek a voice soaring above the rest

Built from the ground
Forming scratches upon the surface
We survive in wretched of times
We survive in wretched of times
Conjure the power
We survive in wretched of times
Conjure the power
And we thrive in the most wretched of times

Align the stones to form a message in the sand
I will never relinquish
It is written in the sand

Align the stones to form a message in the sand
I will never relinquish
It is written in the sand

I've done all I can
I've done all I can

Align the stones to form a message in the sand
I will never relinquish
It is written in the sand

Align the stones to form a message in the sand
I will never relinquish
It is written in the sand

Align the stones to form a message in the sand
I will never relinquish
It is written in the sand

I've done all I can
6. Aeris (3:47)
Have faith and you won't be left behind
Haunted by the thoughts of a failed life
Self realize

There's a message embedded in my mind
I see it over and over
Every time that I shut my eyes
I am finally awake
This is the end of a nightmare

This is the end
I am finally awake
This is the end of a nightmare

This is the end
We will live
And forgive the mistakes they've made
Surrounded with trust
We won't make the same

Self realize
I am finally awake
Self realize
I am finally awake
We fill with hope
I am finally awake
This is the end of a nightmare

Haunted by the thoughts of a failed life
Leave behind the thoughts of a failed life [2x]
This is the end

We will live and forgive the mistakes they've made
Surrounded with trust
We won't make the same

Self realize
I am finally awake
Self realize
I am finally awake
Our lives will fill with hope
I am finally awake
They've only foreshadowed our own

Have faith and you won't be left behind [3x]

Until our guidance [4x]
Until our guidance is that alone [4x]
7. Three-Fifty (3:26)
There are a million roads
Which lead to the same place
The same place

It is the means along the way that awakens us
So wake me up
Perceptions of life

Forgive the foes who have turned away
Through pride grips vitality and must remain
Leave the foundation of which you call home
Only to return or forever alone

Will we be known forever
Forever (Will we be known)
Will we be known forever
Forever

There are a million roads which lead to the same place
It is the means along the way that awakens us
We are not hopeless

Within the unknown
Is it us who chose
Within the unknown
Is it us

Within the unknown
Is it us who chose
Within the unknown
Is it us

Will we be known forever
Forever
Will we be known forever
Forever
Will we be known forever
Forever
Will we be known forever
Forever

Within a world I've never known
Yet so familiar
How could I possibly know
Within a world I've never known

Have we been chosen
Or is it us who chose

Within a world I've never known
Have we been chosen
Or is it us who chose
Within a world I've never known
Have we been chosen
Or is it us who chose

Or is it us who chose

Perception of life is perception of soul
Embrace what's to come
We may not live eternally
Eternity lies within the unknown

Within the unknown
8. Phoenix (3:16)
I've held it in my hands

I've held it in my hands

My dismembered soul reassembles

I've held it in my hands

I've held it in my hands

My dismembered soul reassembles

My dismembered soul
Take shape of which you desire
Evil lingers within each valley
we pass through
Take shape of which you desire
Evil lingers within each valley
we pass through
I've held it in my hands

held it in my hands

Evil lingers within everything
Evil lingers within everything
Hope has replenished
my healing body relentless
Always in motion
Evil lingers within everything

I've seen it now
I've held it in my hands

My dismembered soul reassembles
I've seen it now
I've held it in my hands
My dismembered soul reassembles

Elevation is no escape

We send ourselves

To search for tranquility
A feeling that can't be found

Search for tranquility
A feeling that can't be found
It is fabricated through acceptance
of a broken world
Evil lingers within everything
Evil lingers within everything
Evil lingers within everything
Evil lingers within everything
9. Matriarch (1:18)
10. Teleute (3:00)
The thorns protruding from the vines. They penetrate
Deep enough to kill the fight
That I have harnessed all my life
That I have harnesses all of my life
Compared just as brothers
Let's not pretend that we each know the other
Neither is greater. Compared just as brothers

We are simply distinguished
One of the same
Bred from a different place
Your hate - It penetrates

Caught under a blanket of fire
I am who I am. Now dragged under
With a smirk so pretentious
You are who you are, now pulled under

Compared just as brothers
I'm alone within a black hole
Turmoil suffocates
I am left to suffer
I will engrave the demise of my brother
I'm alone within a black hole
11. Daenerys (3:39)
I have finally come alive
Collectively we wish to uplift

Some we lose along the way
But there are those who return to reclaim their place
This way we sought is obscure and strange

The deranged form groups of hate
Facing the others with fury
Fires which rage will only be extinguished

Brought to us from the greater force
And all which we take must be given back
We are life and we are death
And of course we are all of the rest

I'm already gone though it seems you're here (I'm already gone)
I will return to you when I am through with this I swear (It seems your here)
I'm already gone though it seems to me you're here
I will return to you when I am through with this I swear

Engulfed in the ocean of life
With only ourselves to protect
Neglect has a consequence
We are life and we are death

The deranged form groups of hate
Groups of hate

Fires which rage will only be extinguished
Some we lose along the way

I'm already gone though it seems you're here (I'm already gone)
I will return to you when I am through with this I swear (It seems your here)
I'm already gone though it seems to me you're here
I will return to you when I am through with this I swear

I will return to you
I will return

I have finally come alive
Collectively we wish to
We wish to uplift
12. Lisbeth (3:45)
I'm looking back
I've gone astray
I've chosen my way but have I made a mistake

Here I am longing for shelter
Relinquishing everything

Hold your place and just keep still
Remind yourself you must fulfill your aspirations

Am I just simply afraid [2x]

I have chosen my way
But have I made a mistake
Here I am longing for shelter
Relinquishing everything

Hold your place and just keep still
Remind yourself you must fulfill your aspirations
Hold your place and just keep still
Remind yourself you must fulfill your aspirations

Far from the world that I once knew
Everything that I love is everything that I hate

Lost
Far from the world that I once knew
Why must I despise entirely

Everything that I love is everything that I hate
Have my ambitions led me astray
Or am I blatantly afraid

Hold your place and just keep still
Remind yourself you must fulfill your aspirations
Hold your place and just keep still
Remind yourself you must fulfill your aspirations
