The Face of the Unknown Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Salvation (10:31)
Life isn't all there is.
There must be more than this.
We have to know, what is the meaning of our time on earth?
We have to know, what it is that drives us, what are we
Worth?
Looking back our lives have slowed to a crawl,
We've gotta live life outside of these walls.
With every action, every comment you make,
You must choose to be loyal or choose to be paid.

This time you have gone too far,
Watch the embers start to scar.
Nothing's real, i can't feel you there,
And you know you're going nowhere.

Feel salvation rising in, in your soul.
Feel elation wash away it all.

We'll never know what is inside us,
It still remains to be solved.
And so we strive not to feel confined.

Feel salvation rising in, in your soul.
Feel elation wash away your past.
Wash away

Feel salvation rising in, in your soul.
Feel elation wash away it all.

Rising tides bring forth new life.
Finding darkness in the light.

Lifted up into the sun.
After all this time we've won.

Still cannot find your home.

Start anew and you can,
Find your way to the open door.

Falling seas reveal your home,
And you know your time has come,
The deal is done.

Look to me, you will see,
What you must be to,

Feel salvation rising in, in your soul.
Feel elation wash away your past.
Feel salvation make you feel, make you feel so whole.
Feel elation cleanse your mind at last.
2. Visions (3:58)
She tries and tries to reach the land of no tomorrow,
But journeys on to see nothing in this darkness.
She must try and find the light.

Time will go on, as the world keeps turning.
You're standing still but your eves see visions.

She cannot help but think there's nothing left inside her.
And though she wants to sing, the song in her is gone.
She's seeing nothing inside her head.
There's nothing here now, nothing anymore.

Time will go on, as the world keeps turning.
You're standing still but your eves see visions.

In your mind

Look to the skies, you will find peace of mind in her eyes.
She's blind, unseeing visions intertwined.

Time will go on, as the world keeps turning.
You're standing still but your eves see visions

Time will go on, as the world keeps turning.
You're standing still but your eves see visions
3. The Heart of the Sun (7:12)
Is this the end? there's a light that's shining,
It's showing me the way.
Reality, i can feel it's fire, it's burning in my veins.

Feel the heart of the sun beating inside your chest.
Like a river of healing, helping you know what's best.
The heart of the sun, showing you what is left.
It's just like yesterday, so what next?

Songs of hope heard in your head.
All your thoughts turning to red.

Thoughts of all you've lost carry on through to every-
Thing it's cost you.
What you are, what you wanted to be, is now colliding
Into me.
It's like you never saw or never cared for the passion in
My eyes.
Turn away, fade to grey, and now the hunter has become
The prey.

Feel the heart of the sun beating inside your chest.
Like a river of healing, helping you know what's best.
The heart of the sun, showing you what is left.
It's just like yesterday, so what next?

Feel the heart of the sun beating inside your chest.
Like a river of healing, helping you know what's best.
The heart of the sun, showing you what is left.
It's just like yesterday, so what next?

Try to reach your endless light.

Feel the heart of the sun beating inside your chest.
Inside your chest.

Feel salvation rising in, in your soul.
Feel elation wash away it all.
4. Crystal Skies (8:13)
The sun sinks low within the sapphire sky.
The shroud is torn away, i know the reason why.
Sitting alone bathed in the sunset's glow,
I know exactly why i'm here and why i must go.

The marbled ash begins to flake and soar,
Far away to a distant shore.
The fire's light reflected in these eyes.
Brings the hope of a new horizon, distant skies.

I will find you soon, we'll soar together, you and i.
You're setting my horizons ablaze.

I will find you soon, we'll soar together, you and i.
You're setting my horizons ablaze.

A search that has thrown him far from home.
Lie strides forward to face another day.

The velvet night is scattered thick with stars.
No chance of turning back too late too far.
The embers of the life he lead turn grey,
As he ventures east to find another day.

One day my wandering will cease.
Together we'll fly the crystal skies.

Let these feelings guide you now.
And i know you can still win.
My heart has shown you how,
As our new life now begins.
5. Natural Selection (4:49)
Found dead, lying face down in the snow. mankind's
Been dealt another fatal blow.
All the traffic stops to a standstill but no one will make
A move, they've got a point to prove.
To make their way, they show their poison off and
Have a laugh, they're so far astray.

Lost in your imaginary world, no one or nothing else
Can be heard.
Feel the real world outside under your feet, beside your
Mind, what else is there left to find?
To break us free, out of this tragedy and mystery, from
These ties that bind.

Show me innocent feelings, how can you be sure if
They're real?
This is our story, we hold the key to unlock this
Mystery.

This velvet night the stars align,

Try to draw their hidden meaning.

Show me innocent feelings, how can you be sure if
They're real?
This is our story, we hold the key to unlock this
Mystery.

And now they're open, will you look through my eyes
Finally broken, drowning out the lies.
Reaching our last frontiers and i can see for ears.
What we could never be has been left far behind me.
I now own the key, and finally i can see
I need the sunlight, come to set me free.

Spinning through elastic dreams empty bodies left
Lying on the ground
Left in this
Drowning, left out on my own
6. The Face of the Unknown (7:00)
A boy stood before us years ago and saw faces in the
Ocean.
Picture yourself within the picture, when the sea rose
Up to meet him.
The trees are calling him, you can almost hear their
Bark, as the face in the water smiles and towers above.
You feel the strength built up through the ages, and
You can tell by its weight, it's been waiting too long.

I can't find, all the pieces that lay here broken from
My mind.
I'm facing the face of the unknown. i can't know.

You search for truth in the flood, drops falling from the
Sky bringing peace through tears.
What you see in his eyes, it makes you forever know
That he is not alone.

I can't find, all the pieces that lay here broken from
My mind.
I'm facing the face of the unknown. i can't know.

I can't find, all the pieces that lay here broken from
My mind.
I'm facing the face of the unknown. i can't know.
7. You're Not Alone (5:22)
I sit and wonder, is there anybody out there?
Out in the light? i am watching from the darkness.
Far from the forest, from the centre of the world.
I can feel their light, burning bright.
Every night.

Who makes a difference in your life? what separates
You from peace or strife?
What do you do when it all falls down? do you run
Like the wind, or do you sink fast and drown?

There's no one here, there is no one to blame.
Nothing to do but play the waiting game.
Say what you want, just don't ask why.
Have you given up hope, or do you think that you still
Might fly?

You're not alone in the black of the night, far from the
Others who feel safe in the light.
Nothing left but to fall asleep.

You're not alone in the black of the night, far from the
Others who feel safe in the light.
Nothing left but to fall asleep.
8. My Sacrifice (5:11)
Lost in the void of sense, we fall.
Try as you might, no one will hear our call.
You push, and you pushed me too far.
But now, falling down from our star.

Wait to reach the end and there's nothing we can do.
You make your chances few.

Become undone, on the edge of the world, with the
Sunlight as my guide.
Here and now, you must have something to give.
Into the end, we are rapidly hurled, at least i can say
I tried.
Trust yourself and you will know how to live.

Your eyes make me sacrifice all that i've earned.
What have i learned?

Become undone, on the edge of the world, with the
Sunlight as my guide.
Here and now, you must have something to give.
Into the end, we are rapidly hurled, at least i can say
I tried.
Trust yourself and you will know how to live.

As we stand on the edge of the world.
On the edge of the world.
9. Start Over (4:26)
Seat over, there's nothing you can do.
Felling helpless, turn to somthing new
Fall through pages of someone you once knew.
Start over, buried in your tomb.
10. Redemption's Shadow (7:01)
Sober again, the world takes a step back.
Trapped in her shell feeling used and abused, cast out and aside.
She cried and cried all night, hiding inside her mind.
As she felt that she could drown, the sky came crashing down.

Redemption's shadow
Redemption's shadow

The white coats came, with straight jacket pleasure.
Measure by measure they fed her the way of the sane.
Like a bird caught in the light, flying to the end of the earth.
Take her hand, she'll finally have a place to stand.

This storm is tearing limb from limb, chance of survival growing
Slim.
They hope the gods are on her side, but inside her soul has died.

Firing into the flames, as i coast towards the sea, there's nothing
You can do to me.

They let her go, they cannot try to stop her. don't meet her stare,
It's like a twisted dark nightmare.

Take a step back.
Take a step back from the world.

(i can find) answers to my dreams.
(i can find) an end to my screams.
(i can find) that there's nowhere left
To run but to the water.

This lurid night i found out what it
Means to be alive inside her.

This storm is tearing limb from limb, chance of survival growing
Slim.
They hope the gods are on her side, but inside her soul has died.

Redemption's shadow.

This storm is tearing limb from limb, chance of survival growing
Slim.
They hope the gods are on her side, but inside her soul has died.
