Eyes of Tomorrow Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Words That Echo Fear (6:10)
describing this obsession
to people who don't know
this self-destructive admiration
is getting out of control

you succeed in all your dreams
but there's no place to go
ego taken to extremes
with nothing left to show

you play by no one's rules
the leader of the crowd
you proved you're a fool
by tearing people down
your sickness growing worse
an obsession or a curse
a failure to understand
to communicate with fellow man
you pay the price of silence
trapped inside this madness
you play by no one's rules
the leader of the crowd

explaining this depression
to people that you know
this self-destructive tempation
has begun to take its toll
my words will echo fear
to all the people that don't know
ego taken to extremes
with nothing left to show

people all around you
speaking many words
to you, it's all nonsense
not knowing what to do
solution to the problem
try and understand
listen to what they say
to figure out a way
2. Eyes of Tomorrow (3:47)
scanning throughout the days
searching for a piece of anything
evidence of previous society
something to verify my claims
predictions have been made
throughout the course of history
the future can be seen
is what they claim to me

he has vision
he has premonition
he can see
he knows
eyes of tomorrow
3. Being (4:26)
so many questions
never find the answers
so many places
never get to see
so many people
never get to know
so many things
i'll never get to doo

how many chances will we all get?
how many times do we have to regret?
if we only knew then what we know now
if we only knew then what we know now

so many worries
never get it through
so many tears
never get to laugh
so many fears
never get to rest
so many things
i'll never get to test

analyzing people's minds
trying to find reasons why
there's no answers anywhere
to these questions that i fear

so many worries
never get it through
so many tears
never get to laugh
so many fears
never get to rest
so many things
i'll never get to test

too many dreams
never get to live
too many losses
never get to win
too many lies
never can trust
too many deceptions
i'll always be lost
4. Experience (8:22)
you better be prepared
for he will come
doesn't fool around
he plays with no one
his feelings are real
he does mean harm
wants to corrupt you
you should open your eyes
for people like him
you may think you're safe
but it's written on your face
his actions are wicked
he lives for creed
he will try to take you for everything

move close to his prey
he becomes a friend
you begin to trust
you're happy again
he's brewing to confuse
theft of your money
abduction of your soul
rape of your body
pillage to your home
he's destined to corrupt
obstruction of your mind
raiding of your time
extortion of your name
stealing is a crime
he's now demoralized

innocent victim
he sees it in your face
his job is easy when you leave in a daze
abstraction is the key that unlocks your mind
deception is his game he wastes no time

people are so naïve
they fall into his hands
they listen and obey
when they don't understand
devotion to a fiend
in a human shape
frustration to his family
he can't escape
5. Afraid of Time (3:39)
i know where you're going
i know where you've been
show me some courage
show me how to win
take me through life
as only you can

take me through time
with no fear my friend
i really hate the thought
i really hate the fact
try a different way
try a different path
as time passes by
the older we get

i know the secrets
don't try and lie
you're scared of living
you're afraid of time

i can see the future
i can see it clear
i can see the troubles
i can see the fear
i can see the hatred
i can see the sadness
i can sing a song
and make it go away
i can feel the tension
i can feel the pain
will it ever stop?
will it go away?
look into the mirror
same reflection day by day
will it ever stop?
will it go away?

time slipping away like sand
days, calendars, numbers
with every second
the older we get
6. Reflecting Pictures (5:43)
circle the problems solutions in the air
running away is not the way to help
the strong always will survive
the weak will wither away and die
you have the courage along with the strength
with all this power nothing gets in the way
you fight and never seem to run
it's people like you the weak depend upon

your mind is strong
your thoughts are strong
prove them all wrong
always stand tall
reflecting pictures
reflecting dreams
testing your reality
what's it all mean

by your walk confidence will show
nothing to fear is all you should know
we all have questions the answers aren't hard
the acf of patience will get you far
some people are leaders the rest will follow
who says we're equal some are just smarter
encourage yourself to find who you are
life's too short the time is now
7. Change of Mood (7:42)
as i awake in the morning
my mood is okey
i get out of bed
and it seems to slightly change
as the hours ticks away
happiness starts to fade
depression sets in
with misery being the game

this happens all the time
there's nothing i can do
i think i'm going crazy
and others think that too
looking for some answers
in places so unknown
to discover this dark demon
that's taking control

don't try to change your mind
listen to my words
leave the state that you're in
enter my dimension

i hate when this happens
who takes control
tries to twist my dreams
try to take my soul
i am a prisoner
i am a slave to master that i don't know

beginning to resist this slight change of mood
beginning to resist this slight change of mood

examine my mind
tell me what's wrong
conflicting theories
that don't belong
i live with contradictions
mood swings are norm
get a grip
on a life that's all my own

who the hell am i?
i did nothing wrong to deserve intrusion
on my inner soul
8. The Act of Unspoken Wisdom (4:09)
until you hide and you find the truth
a place in time is really not for you
the time has come to show the world
your secret abilities what you're capable

i felt your eyes
they closed, you died
the act is done for the unspoken one
i felt your eyes
they closed, you died
the act is done for the unspoken one

it's the act
of unspoken
it's the act
of unspoken wisdom

no time to cry
show them what you can do
people will lie
we know that it's true
don't cheat the world of the gifts you possess
that's not fair
don't make us miss
9. Whisper of a Dream (6:14)
take my hand and travel
take my hand and fly away
take you on a journey
a fable i have made
lose your inhibitions
loosen all your chains
there are no restrictions
in my private place
everyone is welcome
come before it's too late
the gates will soon be closing
a ceremony will soon take place

i don't know
i can't see
what this means
to someone like me
is it truly real?
or just a dream?
open your eyes
to reality
open your eyes
to reality

whisper of a dream
whisper of a dream
whisper of a dream

i can make you feel
things that were never real
lose your paranoia
take a trip and i'll show ya
so much speculation
not enough experimentation
afraid to lose your position
no salary, no ambition

take my hand and travel
take my hand and fly away
take you on a journey
a fable i have made
lose your inhibitions
loosen all your chains
there are no restrictions
in my private place
everyone is welcome

i can make you feel
things that were never real
lose your paranoia
take a trip and i'll show ya
so much speculation
not enough experimentation
afraid to lose your position
no salary, no ambition
just like when you dream
expand your mind be free
10. Proud Reflex (5:09)
there's only so much
we should take
you give a little
but get no break
the world ain't fair
we all now that
the one's who deserve it
get no respect
i wasn't born
to wealth or fame
i came a long way
for you to know my name
where i'm at
is not by luck
i count my blessings
i've had it rough

but i guess i like it
when life is hard
it motivates me
twice as hard
once you push me
i'll never stop
you can say i'm foolish
try and tear me down
you can laugh at me
and i'm no clown
you can do anything you want to
and always be proud

mother told you
it will be alright
life will treat you
how she would like
she forgot to mention
all the wrong
society will slowly
bring along
i wasn't born
to work and die
try and sneak in
a few moments of life
let your dreaming
take you away
if they call you back
ignore them and stay
