Machina Viva Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Bedlam Overture (14:59)
Silent screaming words, offering our lives a way
A perfect smile for all to see
Lingers everywhere, travels where horizons blend
A grand design to hold as true

Strangers gazing west, faceless shadows on a screen
A distant comfort, silent cries
Death is just a word, stripped from meaning long ago
All that’s near we hold as dear

Love is their disease, beyond a cure they gloat in sin
All the while they die
Color taints their mind, their savage hearts for us to see
Our kinds roam different lands

Breathe…just breathe…close your eyes a while
Stillness lies buried within your own mind

She’s drowning now, her life is swept away
All silent now, her body in decay
[x4] (Air…Breathe…Life…)

Take a moment now, time to make a choice
Past soon turns into a faded memory
We’ve gone too far, let go
See the weight of lunacy fall to the ground
Candle flames have turned into a raging fire
By winds put to words
Well of reasoning, calling for discovery
To flush sins of our deeds away…

Breathe…just breathe…close your eyes a while
Stillness lies buried within your own mind

Upon this hollow ground we need to start again
Bridge infernal depths, rebuild the realms we kept
Fight the urge to hide, find the vows that died
Upon this hollow ground we need to start again
Eyes upon the world beyond illusive screens
Now the blood red sky cries for reasons why
2. Machina (5:23)
Wide awake I am
Endlessly drifting
Weightless…heavily
This world all you are
Arrested conformity
Turning endlessly
I watch myself travel by
All we are has never been
Cycles everything
Trivial mind, escaping time
Fighting for a definite end
Conform me again

I am you…I am you…
I am you…I am you…

Back inside the wheel in time
Never to revert outside…Externally
Back inside the wheel in time
Never to revert outside…Externally

There’s no way out
This spiral of monotony
You cannot deny me
Because I am you
3. Pile of Ash (ES335 version) (4:21)
Turned around and you were gone, in spite of our promises
Shadows scattered by your hand, linger just down the hall
Silently I’m suffocating in this void of yours
Grasping life, remembering how you made me feel alive

Crying in silence, all out of words
Fire embraced all I was, all I saw
Burned me from inside, leaving nothing but this pile of ash

Heard you laughed the other day, echoes of our hollow memories
Guess I know that time will heal all the wounds, barely leaving scars

Healing in silence, all out of words
Fire embraced all I was, all I saw
Burned me from inside, leaving nothing but this pile of ash
Rising from a fertile ground, all I was I’m sure I will become again
Smiling in silence, I’m holding back the words

The fire embraced all I was, all I saw
It burned me from inside, nurturing the ground I died upon
Finally I see through the shroud, I’m finding air despite the void
The fire of you, the ashes of me…they set me free…
4. Our Last Goodbye (7:53)
All is grey, the sun has died
No wind today, my breath aside
Our last goodbye, you turned into
A poisoned lie, I could not see through

Jaded hearts, fading beats
A life apart, a grand old start
Pouring rain followed him
Filled with pain from his domain

As I lie alone tonight
The sky allures in white
And I fly into the unknown void of silence
Leave the cries behind, I am free… ‘til I wake from my dream

Tonight I’ll be there by my window, watching the people below
So many stories of sorrow, so many endings to know
How come that I feel so alone
And that all that I see is my pain?

No one’s there as I’m falling
A dying glare sees me crawling
Falling in love is the reason I live and I die
I wait…in silence I will rebuild my strength

Time goes by so fast
My love, we’re now a memory
A memory I’ll always keep safe
Moments in time look like raindrops that fall
On a windshield that travels a rainy night
Let it rain…

As I lie alone tonight
Leave the cries behind, I am free…‘til I wake from my dream

Tonight I’ll be there by my window, watching the people below
So many stories of sorrow, so many endings to know
How come that I feel so alone
And that all that I see is my pain?
Millions are those who have spoken, millions are those left unheard
Looking for that which was broken, something not found in a word
How come that you seem so alone
Though you tell them he comforts your pain?
5. Pledge (8:00)
The reality of all I imagined was all of a sudden so obvious and so damn vigorous
The chains that kept me at bay all those years, they were lifted and ultimately destroyed
I’d been saved by the one

For better or worse, through sickness and health
Burden of her devotion
There 'til the end, death do us part
Devoured by her emotions

Trapped in a running wheel we ran towards something we would never reach
Still bound by our promises, old chains were simply replaced by new
Our desire to ascend just left us all the more confined

For better or worse, through sickness and health
Burden of her devotion
There ´til the end, death do us part
Devoured by her emotions

You will need to let go though darkness descends all around
I must travel alone from here

In the name of our pledge, with the force of past
Grasping my last breath
In the name of our pledge
All I ever was has nailed me to this cross

(Silence... Laughter… Breathing… Fading…)
Silence is screaming my name
In laughter it hides
Breathing life in our bond
Fading again…

In the darkness of tonight, dancing shadows on the wall
Hiding from the light, into the night, darkness to light
In the coldness of the dawn, breathing faintly once again
Nurtured by the light, into the fight, into the blight
Can’t you see I’m weary, fighting for my life?
You’re so much more, thinking you should know by now
Why won’t you see?
Your essence is tearing apart content of your own heart

You will need to let go though darkness descends all around
I must travel alone

In the name of our pledge, with the force of past
Grasping my last breath
In the name of our pledge
All we ever were will die
In the name of our pledge, with the force of past
Grasping my last breath
In the name of our pledge
All I ever was has nailed me to this cross
6. When the Night Comes (7:55)
And you stare into a gloomy distance
Of a place you thought was ahead of you
But now the winding road seems never ending... Tonight...
You pray that the stars will light the way for you
When the night gets dark and the cold unknown
Comes your way to ensure your ending’s tonight...

I'll be there, watching every move they make
I'll be there whispering words to ease your pain all through the night…

When the night comes and the coldness numbs your mind
All your deepest fears find you running motionless
When the night comes and the nightmares come to life
All you drag behind slows you down trying, running
You’ll die trying, running…

Coldness seeks to slow your every move
Trading secrets with your loneliness
Watchful rest, keep that fire burning tonight…
And though when it all just seems too much to bare
When the night is there and you're all alone
Your weariness can never be your mistress tonight...

The pain of leaving behind (A pain that shall set you free)
And journey on through the wild (Defying the cries of the night)
Defining trades of a life (A lifetime to show)
As you scare off the darkness tonight...

I'll be there, watching every move they make
I'll be there whispering words to ease your pain all through the night…

When the night comes and the coldness numbs your mind
All your deepest fears find you running motionless
When the night comes and the nightmares come to life
All you drag behind slows you down trying, running
You’ll die trying, running away…
When the night comes and coldness numbs your mind
I’ll whisper words to keep you awake…
When the night comes to suffocate your fire
I’ll be there watching, waiting…to set you on your way…
7. Nemesis (9:33)
I fade away again and more you gain
This dark or light, black or white lingers on
As I die I watch you live
You sure will find your way somehow
You have to…I had to…I lay me down again

I see myself in you as you see me
You have your ways and I have mine, it's all the same
When I'm gone, your wish complete
There will always be another one
I know you…You know you…There's always more of you…

Wasted all this time, I walked for miles away from you
Wasted all this time, I walked for miles away from you

I pay no mind to life, we have it all
Our natural law, the fragile fall, you remain…
Where there's crop, the eager feeds
The more one has, the more one wants
I know you…I see you…There's always more for you…

Wasted all this time, I walked for miles away from you
Wasted all this life, I walked for miles away from you
8. Sheds (6:53)
They say that time will heal, that life is all but real
You see my worlds collide, a happy man so sad
I know the fire is safe, inside the icy shell
A place where you can’t see, that’s where I’d rather be

In this world of conformity, I know there’s no place for me
I stand here on the edge, see my face reflect
A well of eternity but it pains too much to see
A lock you can’t unlock, a key that’s mine to keep

See the trail through time and space
Find your way I’ll meet you there
9. Pile of Ash (cello version) (5:01)
