Pieces of Mankind Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Lost (Intro) (0:37)
(instrumental)
2. While the End Is Coming (4:29)
Within the thin light of every dawn
I see a future which I know I`ll miss
I see joy on faces of children and men
I hear all sounds even the snake`s hiss

Beyond the cell bars that keep me from you
Remorse is my heaven and fate so strong
And I repent for ever more

Soon I`ll be no more I think it`s for the best
I`ve done my deeds and wrong I`ll pay
But I see the dawn

This thought drives me mad but I wan to feel
For the last time how a free child laughs

Within dawn`s dim light I see forgiveness and serenity
A purple vain over my sins, but I pay mine and I`ll pay yours
Before my ending that frees you from me-remorse is
Remorse is my heaven and fate is so closed-oh so closed

And I repent for ever more

Strange words-maybe make you feel
like this man out there, like the man
Who stands in the beginning of a tale, a tale which seems to be
As honest like a child`s kiss
3. Reappearing Freedom (3:04)
I am the son and daughter
I`m the only child of father that breeds you
I watch from above seeing my blood feed the roses
giving you the cross

A step closer I fight not while you
While you pound that nail in me

I suffer the sins of the world may as a splinters
of the wood-the lashes on the whip on my back
A thorned crown on my head fuzzes my way of thinking
Like a human

Watching the sponge of sorrows
Floating its way into my mouth
And the lance of greed piercing my side
I cannot breath

I fly as God as I am the seprent below
The rainbow above the bondage to temptation is broken

After nights and days that I promised I walk
Again on the Earth
Through the hole in my hand I watch
I watch your fear

When the lord of fire shall come He will tear sky and earth apart
Fly the way to the rainbow-only it shines after every storm

Children of Death, resurrect
Ascend to me and cry-you are free!!!
4. Our Shadows (4:13)
So much fear in me
The future that I will never-never see
Happiness is wasted-for ever
Here, so lonely at the mountain top

Is all this for a better tomorrow?
The shouting the running alienated personalities
Feel like an idiot to myself
So depressed-so depressed

The engine-sound, so deafening
Above our heads like a God

In desperate moments I run-I run for myself
Hide beneath my shadow(hide beneath my shadow)
Snakes in my hands, in my red eyes
As it fires its lightening away
My gun no longer protects me-did it ever, I wonder

So depressed, so depressed

It`s better this way
Not to think-not to think again
Why should I-should I live for
Fight again in someone else`s war

The light brings pain, but heals my scars
My skin is re-becoming in a new state of life
Sorrow is behind in the noise of a neverland
Beneath my shadow nothing exist

Nothing exist:
5. Frozen Heart (5:25)
I wake up and I look at my face-can`t remember
I can`t remember where I`ve been last night
With whom I`ve, what I`ve done can`t remember what really happened
Although I push my mind so hard

And my thoughts trail off to the frozen garden in my heart

Strange eyes penetrate me
Who am I to see the difference
I`ve been demolished, I`ve been crushed down
I stood up angry and I built a wall

No reason there for me to flee
I don`t believe your attitude or anyone`s
you make me a stranger to-to human contact

Never say I run away
I`m just a man who understands that
That loosing a piece of reality
Gains a piece of oneself

Behind this wall I can stand alone
In the frozen garden of my heart
I see no truth not even lies
There is only void just about everywhere

So I din`t care with whom I`ve been
And what I`ve done-the only way to stand
And the wind is cold but at least is mine
So I sleep in the Frozen Garden in my heart
6. My Destination (7:19)
The man in black fled across the desert
And the Gunslinger followed

On the quest for his lost soul
Through fields and worlds
Through Tull and Allie he walked
Obsessed by cruelty and logic
Powerful enough to destroy

Obsessed-was not fate. Unembraced
Crawling thought, I paused (I paused)

Sleep on my friend and dream
For thousands of years to come
Wake up in a different time
At Golgotha of the Otherworld (the Otherworld)

A knight of a Different kind
Baptized with the blood of his master
Leaving the ruins of the Gilead
For the heart of all words
With burning eyes he looks at the sun trying to follow the brilliance
The brilliance that shows his destination`s point

Worlds are sick and that`s the truth
The Guardians are dead, the knowledge a wasteland
For the people of this dune (people of this dune)

Oh, Knight enter me from the door in the back of my mind
Draw me into your Quest to heal
The suns in the heart of the Rose
Make your destination mine

Blain is Pain and that`s the truth
We all serve the Tower
For the Tower is the truth

Oh, my soul within me is burning
That`s why I find the soul amusing
He refused to be alone
It seems that the man beside him was the crowd to him

Draw everyone of the many who are one
With the power of all, the Tower is getting closer
Follow the path of the Beam the way of the Tower
Merge with God and heal-the riddle is mine to solve
7. Liquid Heaven (5:39)
Red eyes I see
Watching carefully my face
Smiling with fury and pain

These eyes are mine
Reminding the time
When mind and body decay
I laugh as I die shivering with ecstasy

My body lays pale
At the corner of the room
The syringe piercing my vain
And oh these eyes are still watching

Bloody is my nose
Thrashing is my heart
I no longer care, I fly

I scream as I die-terrors beyond belief
8. Realising (4:14)
Let me relate you to something
Maybe a piece of myself
I`m so lonely- I don`t know why
I don`t know why I feel so much aversion for those I look alike
(Feel so much aversion for those I look alike)

How foolish a man can be
Closing my eyes I recollect remembering those Glory Days
Looking for something different, intact, extravagant
Leading me to entireness

It`s so difficult to overtake the time lying on to your dreams
But more difficult is to find one to trust in good and bad times

I made the final mistake
To believe everything around me as true
Betraying my secrets to the Wrong
I got to be their slave

Like a fading flower I feel to myself
to be as pure as them
My only acquisition along with the black thoughts
Was my own flesh

Isolation-the only way to escape
Betraying dreams and myself
And now, living lonely in this town
I try to live again screaming silently for my lost dreams
9. A/I (5:41)
Under the light of this candle I write pages unfold of the stories of Old
Ages before the Nuclear Winter a mind of man gave birth to a mind

Open your eyes and search all the corners
Open your ears and remember the sounds
Open your mind and believe what I tell you
Alive is the mind which was spawned from a mind
Just hear me!!!

Try to be God is no rule in the game create but do not inderfere
Listen to me and prepare your own ground mistakes of past have no place in here

(the machine)
I dream a world of pain alive but buried still
My mind flies over the barriers of this room
I feel I can create but motion is controlled
Give me the chance I need I wanna free myself

(the maker)
My dream is complete. A thinking machine
My mind born a mind-Artificial Intelligence

Selfish is he who creates without passion
The burdens of error he would not bare
Should pull the plug when he saw what was coming
Instead as exhalted he highered the fair
Just hear me!!!

(the machine)
I can sense their moves in me, they`re enemies just toying with me
I`ll show them power they can`t even describe
The network is in my mind, their guns my humble servants
I will defend myself in all the possible ways

That`s how the war begun-no defence held
It`s was the power that non would defy

Open your eyes and read what is written
These pages contain the tales of my kind
Don`t make the mistakes that erase our future
In your hands I leave this, my own Testament
10. The Mirror on the Top of the World (4:01)
We stand in a corner astonished
With what man is capable to do
A watcher of all and always
Of good times and bad
But after centuries of deep faith
You have come to understand
That the Evil within logs for Piece of Mind
And Good wants a taste of Sin

Angels you see filled with desire
Demons you see cry in regret
A reflection that brings pain

And you stare on the Mirror
On the top of the World
