Another Life Lyrics

8. Another Life (19:20)
A palace in the dust
A garden hewn in stone
A sanctuary in the deep
For me to call my own

---

(Lost - an army from below
On the hill where land meets sky
See its next target:
The tower in the sand will fall)

You've forgotten where you're from
(I do what I must to go on)
I reject what you've become
(There's no room for your whimsy in my world)

It's a war of wills in my memory
Standing on hallowed ground
Red all around, chaos bleeds
Don't let it fall
This place is the key to it all

(Dry your eyes
You'll learn to be content in time
Forget this "art"
It's just entertainment at heart)

Now my shadow's growing tall
Keeping me in line
You don't know my mind
(I'll crush you if you come near me or mine)

Day turned into night
Night sky filled with fire
The ground is giving way to void
Like a dream

It's a fight to retain my clarity
Feel the old power slipping away
Now it's plain: the age-old mountain will fall

---

Morning:
The sun's the same
But somehow the arid landscape subtley has changed
I fool myself when I still can
But it still calls me from
A thousand feet under sand

There's something left behind
I saw the signs, where are they taking me
An image burning still inside
A sanctuary
A garden hewn in stone

(Look around
Demons breaking down the world you knew)
Nothing left to say
No one left to hear

Night fell:
The sky shed tears
The same day in instant replay for too many years
Your facade - it's not enough
That pleasant grey won't keep me from fighting
It came back all at once

This world is filled with figments
Of the fragments of our shattered selves
The truth is on the other side
I remember all
The journey's just begun...

---

(So it's come to this at last
Every day, the same old song and
Dancing in the fire, you'll burn
You made your choice, there's no return
Till the hands of time have run their course...
Once you said there must be more
Liar, I'm the only Way
Back then you made a vow
Your words were empty then as now)
"This isn't what I wanted
This won't become my life...

...Cause we've got a charge to speak our voice
A duty that passes you by -
(Tried but yesterday's gone) -
My body's burning but my ideas will live on
So make a choice, it's simple:
You create or die"

(Hypocrite!
You loved not thinking of the past
Doing what's before you
Never dwelling on the task
When the day is laid to rest...
I fed you, led you
Took care of all your wants
Your faith will lead you nowhere
And your art will be forgot)

If my work should follow to my grave
I'll laugh because I am complete -
(Though your grave may go untended) -
Every ripple is felt in time
And every step we take from here will be
A flower that's placed at its feet

It's a voice that speaks an eternity
Promised myself I'd reach your walls again
And not let you fall

(If that's the way it's got to be
Take your ideals and go to hell
There's more like me who know what's real
And this world won't run itself
It's death out there without a guide
The blinding sun will burn your eyes
Don't say I didn't warn you;
You'll die in the desert alone
Get out of my sight!)

A frantic dig through barren earth
Uncovering my future past
Visions of another life in my head
Was it real?
Dirt runs through bloody hands
Till the final revelation:
A single brick staring at me from the sand

...And I don't know what lies ahead
Let another chapter begin
I've found the meaning of my life
And I will never look back again

A palace in the dust
A garden hewn in stone
A fortress standing tall over the winding wastes
A truth that lies below
It's growing deeper still
And now I know that
It always will be here
