A Mind's Portrait Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Existence (4:10)
Tomorrow brings the promise of existence
as the choices we need never end.
There's no reason, there's no end in sight,
there's no peaceful destruction within.
All through life you're falling off the edge of dreams,
into the centre of your soul.

All you've learned and all you hide,
it is what you are inside.
All your lies and all you try
cannot save yourself from time.

Deep inside, forever lost,
the chains hold it in place.
As the rivers flow, into the seas,
they wash away my soul.
Hold it in place, seasons change;
they pass away, as they can never stay.

Hear now, the silent call to end it all,
the rage burns my mind games,
consumed by flames, left behind, you find:

All you've learned and all you hide,
it is what you are inside.
All your lies and all you try
cannot save yourself from time.

All you've learned and all you hide,
it is what you are inside.
All your lies and all you try
cannot save yourself from time.

All you have and all you hide,
it is what you are inside.
All the truth will help you find
is that you've been left behind.
2. Time Divine (4:18)
Left behind in another life,
light has brought the truth back from the shadows.
No time to waste while the whispers swell,
as the past and the present realign.
Moments fade into one last breath.
Shown the truth of:

Time divine, from gilded eyes,
see the power of the hands of time.
Does hope and faith give meaning
to the actions of one man?

From the edge of thought a call came forth,
as the shadows of the past come back to haunt.
Yet the paradox conforms all life,
as the past and the future fade away.
Shown the light of:

Time divine, from gilded eyes,
see the power of the hands of time.
Does hope and faith give meaning
to the actions of one man?

There are others like you, you are not alone.
In your darkest hour, even gods can die.

Watch as the generations rip apart.
(See) the masters' hand at work, the paradox is now complete now.
(Fight) if you want to live, realise the truth within the…
(Light), out of sight, out of mind, out of time.

Time divine, from gilded eyes,
see the power of the hands of time.
Does hope and faith give meaning
to the actions of one man?

With the balance restored, now I am alone.
In my darkest hour, even gods will fail.
3. Blinded Rain (6:33)
Streets lined with stories, entwined words flow,
flash, grow and fade away.
Lives run on rails, crawling lights show,
flash, grow and fade away.

Streets in amber glow
Streets in amber glow
Streets in amber glow.

They stare in wonder, blinded rain slows,
slips, pools and flows away.
Rust clings born broken, twisted cracks grow,
split, fray and wear away, wear away.

Dark shadows whisper, sights seen fall,
rise, combine then sink below.
Time fades inwards, coiled leaves still flow,
flash, fade and grow away.

Streets in amber glow
Streets in amber glow.

Streets in amber glow
Streets in amber glow.

Days last glow slipping away
and leaving the world in shade.
Shade.
4. Hope's Echo Pt. I (3:48)
Sleep, fading away, leaving only her.
Thoughts running away so fast, she's alone.
And nobody hears as she walks down the stairs,
leaving everything behind her.
Take care when your heart lets go of you.

Moments fade, her eyes return to grey
as she sees his face in front of her thoughts.

Time fading away, leaving only guilt.
If time was turned back, would he be the same?

Moments fade, her heart has turned to stone.
The truth, he'll never know…
5. Hope's Echo Pt. II (4:36)
Return to me.

Life goes on and the light will break the night.
This burden grows, but your mind is clear
to rise above the fear.

It isn't simple, as you cannot see the pain inside of me.
What I've done to deserve this?
Follow me to my darkest dreams.
Misery loves my company.

This is the aftermath, the echo of all hope that's lost.
The dream is caught, but the soul remains still lost inside my…

Thoughts of you enter the back of my mind.
They force me to think of when
you broke your vows, unsaid until now,
forcing me into jealousy.
You're mine; always you're mine, for all of time.

This is the aftermath, the echo of all hope that's lost.
The dream is caught, but the soul remains
still lost inside my mind.

I will never forget you,
but you'll never know as death cheats love.

Time marches on, hope's echo's lost forever more.
I thought that I would find my peace inside of you,
but now I walk on my own.

This is the aftermath, the echo of all hope that's lost.
The dream is caught, but the soul remains still lost.
This is the aftermath, the echo of all hope that's lost.
Now hear my final call, for now and evermore.
6. A Mind's Portrait (3:44)
Moments, seconds, hours waste away.
Washed out, world so bright,
burning in your hands tonight.

Piece by piece, fight to cease,
shining brightly though the haze.
Softly tread through your head,
all the things your mind portrays.
This time, this time.

When time came, to wash all away who tried?
All our lives have brought this fight to survive.

Skies grow bleak, in too deep,
chilling echoes never ending.
Time's intent, bring this lament,
meet you at the circle's end.
To find, to find.

When time came, to wash all away who tried?
All our lives have brought this fight to survive.

Now there's no one, nothing,
bring the circle's end.
7. The Circle's End (1:53)
(instrumental)
8. Heavens Falling (6:38)
Look and see the sky's dark horizon,
time to run from this past foregone.
Shadows crawl over the ground,
light fading from the sky's last moments of life.

Try and find the peace within this tempest
as all time now fades away.
Now let the full force consume the beauty
without knowing the full effect.
Silence screams at the sky, yet there's no reply.
Growing sense of dismay from the light of day.

Cynics run over the sky,
try and hide from the heavens falling.
Shadows crawl over the ground,
light fading from the sky's last moments.

In the centre of this mind
we will see the world defined.
Draw the cold white silent earth in your eyes.

Hope may try, under lies.
Burn the sky in your eyes.

Cynics run over the sky,
try and hide from the heavens falling.
Shadows crawl over the ground,
light fading from the sky's last moments.

Look and see the sky's calm horizon,
time is now on your side.
9. Into the Infinite (6:52)
Here lies the truth.

You hereby agree to review the cost
for your possible future that's lost.
Continue through the void.
(Justify) your judgement, your actions,
the choices you've made.
(Testify) to what you've become.
(Confess) all of your sins to me.

Here lies the truth, shown through you, torn in two.
Join me, you'll see how we agree, so now tell me:
do you try to break through to nothing?

After the storm dies down,
it's clear to see the answers.
No longer disguised from view,
take back what's said to you.

Here lies the truth shown through you.
You'll be set free, let go from me.
You will submit into the infinite.
10. Goddess (4:23)
(instrumental)
11. The Demise of the Fifth Sun (12:28)
Fire blooms in the mighty churning sky,
illuminates a thousand vacant eyes.
High above, a cry begins to sound.
Ashes fall from the black sky above.

Far away from here, under light of a crimson moon,
gods and men wage a war.
From the burning fields to the rivers flowing darkest red,
holy fire raining down.

Time runs in circles from the past,
seven death has reached us now at last.
Try to run, but the darkness will still come.
Owls sing death, calling out their song as one.

Running from the cities, from the ruins, to the killing ground.
Holy fire, raining down.
Day is night, night is day, cinders fill the air.
Gods and men wage a war.

As their wings rise up to the heavens,
and their eyes burning in the night.
As we run, running from the ending of all time,
and they ride into the light.

My heart will always be with you:
I love you, but fear I must go.
Heed the warning signs
as the tale starts to unfold,
part of the greatest story ever told.

Hear their broken screams as my wrath begins to fall.
Will no one ever hear our cries as the deity stands tall?
Another victim dies…

A storm begins to gather in the cavern,
awakening, the altar consumed with fire.
Strange chanting fills the air with cold,
the ancient rites invoked,
summon the beast of old.

Rising up from the darkness, feeling power start to grow.
Breaking chains that confined me as the blood begins to flow.
Soldiers pause in their bitter struggle, all eyes turn towards the sky.
As it burns above, the fire starts to die.

Raining fire, blood and thunder, leaving ashes in its wake:
all that's left now is darkness, as the earth begins to shake.
Come to set all the world on fire, ending this destructive trend.
The gods of war, fate and fire bringing flames of the end.

Life is a constant quest for reason.
(Feeling power start to grow)
Death is the final chance of redemption.
(As the blood begins to flow)

Worlds collide, realise the prophecy,
only time to feel the pain as the whole world dies.
(The demise of the fifth sun)
There's no hope of redemption.

As their wings rise up to the heavens,
and their eyes, burning in the night.
As we run, running from the ending of all time,
and they ride into the light.

Into the light.

Far away from here under light of a crimson moon,
gods and men wage a war.
From the burning fields to the rivers flowing darkest red.
Holy fire, raining down.

Running from the cities, from the ruins, to the killing ground.
Holy fire, raining down.
Day is night, night is day, cinders fill the air.
Gods and men wage a war.

As their wings rise up to the heavens,
and their eyes, burning in the night.
As we run, running from the ending of all time,
and they ride into the light.

As their wings rise up to the heavens,
and their eyes, burning in the night.
As we run, running from the ending of all time,
and they ride into the light.

My heart will always be with you:
I love you, I shouldn't have gone.
Heed the warning signs,
now my tale can never be told,
This is the end - the world has now gone cold…
