The turn of the lights Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Liberty
Story of life
Story of fate
Something I could've done and now I feel
I've lost myself in time

A picture of those
Beyond control
Hearts messed up, abide
And so I hear
Spirits weep out loud

Living for my next step
Swinging across the border line
I wanna climb those stairs
And reach the top now

You brought me what I need
Addictive heroin
You sucked my heart, still you want everything
Melting flesh and bone
I don't know who you are
You don't know where I've been
Just look behind and see the shadow
Of a one-day-promise

Come for a ride
In the kingdom of light
Most of us don't care to sign the deal
When evil hangs around

Heading for my last step
Running across the border line
I wanna stand and stare...

You brought me what I need
Addictive heroin
You sucked my heart, still you want everything
Melting flesh and bone
Whole days and nights in vain
Unplug and mute the pain
These matted eyes now miss the last glare
Of a one-day-promise
2. Course Of Life
Northern lights dance in the air
Nature paints its scenes
Haunting the winter sky
The wild is so vast
The air quiet and still
Today a new sun will rise

We'll be together when the time comes around
We'll save our prayers and never say farewell
Far becomes close
Scary, divine
A sudden blaze reveals the course of life

I walk in the night
Counting the stars, in silence
With tears in my eyes
But I'll never surrender

We'll be together when the time comes around
We'll save our prayers and never say farewell
Nothing to fear
Nowhere to hide
Nobody escapes the course of life
3. The Turn Of The LIghts
As the universe expands
And high flames are burning
As the light breaks through the haze
And sunrays melt away the snow

The streams get out of control
For we don't own life

It's a fact: We're born to stray
On this deadly journey
We don' know where it begins
And nobody tells where it goes

The Wheels just roll down the road
Is there still a chance?

We're alive - that's all we can say
We must stay alert through the night
Side by side, let's keep hand in hand
And wait for the turn of the lights...
The turn of the lights!
4. Gaza
Someday I will feel enough
To remember what's gone
And I'll live enough
To be humming this song

Someday I will rejoin your soul
When fire stars are falling down on me...

Let the clouds and let the rain
Pour red tears down today
Let the heart and let the pain
Flow away, away...

Feel what is over
Feel what is dead
Your smile forever will live

Like a scar, so many say,
It will never fade away
Like a rainbow in the darkest sky

Someday I'll be
Together with you
Someday I'll leave
This woe behind... for good
5. Stop!
You declare wars in your head
You desert them all instead
Every pulse that pumps your veins
Just reminds you of the weight
All over you...

Simply for a little joy
You neglect and then destroy
The key questions in your mind

When your self-esteem is low
When you find nowhere to go

Stop!... the world can't wait!
You won't find a crystal ball
Throughout the haze

It's about time
To quit that maze
Nothing justifies your pain
For there's no one else to blame,

Except for you...
6. On Your Own
When a shade follows my footsteps at night
That could be you I descend to the riverside
As I'm staring at the blackened water flow
I sense you getting close I know you're getting close

I could reach my hand
And fool my heart one more time
I could stick to what remains...
It's helpless: our future is behind us!

-You say that you go, you don't go
And you never leave a choice
-You say that you need, you don't need
Though there's urgency in your voice

You've been searching for happiness
But emptiness you've found

You think you belong – no, you don't
You're still living on your own

Is there a future for me?
Is there a hope?
Sometimes illusions, they drown
And dreams are gone with the flood
7. Unreplaceable
In the start, light had been made
There were rainbows in the air
In a place we all belong

It's so curious how it swaps
Like the pieces of a play
It depends on how we stand

Day after day
How we care for each word we say
Each move we make...

You pretend you're in control
That you sit so high above
But I prevail without you
When at night you call my name
All your tears roll down in vain
You're not unreplaceable

We must stand
Day after day
We must care for each word we say
Each move we make...
8. Oversoul
The corporations' jaws
Are spreading all around
Invading like a plague, you can't ignore

You're led into a trap
They even seem to care
About your life, your health – your misery!

They need you to stay
They want you to play
They will find the way into your needs
You re scanned high and low
Cause they want to know:
-Are you plain enough to serve us?

Eveкy time they reach their goals
You're stabbed, but you don't know
Can't you sense the Oversoul?
The meaning of it all...

The blooming of a life
You're innocent and wild
You guess you know the truth but you just don't

That's right when it begins:
You've gotta join that game!
You're looking for respect – to be someone!

They force you to pay
They lead you to crave
From now on they'll be behind your needs
You'll do what they say
Can't chose your own way
Right when it's too late to turn back

Every time they reach their goals
You're stabbed, but you don't know
Can't you sense the Oversoul?
The spirit of it all...

Look around and see:
Have you lost all will to live?
Why don't you stand and fight for your soul?
9. White Summit
The sight revealed before my eyes
On that very day
A sea of clouds surrounding high
The mountain summit

All so unexpected,
Falling to pieces to the ground

At first I held the shock inside
And then I woke up I looked around and realized
The white was red with blood

All so disconnected
When you're striving to survive

I must go...
Over the top. to the summit
Or never know
What lies behind the white giant of snow

Step by step to the summit
I'm face to face with the giant
There's no return...
10. Light-Years
Unleash the beast you used to be
Let go of, and set it free
Relieve your heart, let it breathe

Forget the place you used to know
Get ready for a miracle
Straightening the curves of the road

From this time, from this day
You'll never be the same
Leave behind what's insane
And let it fade away
You can still count on me
From the past, nothing remains
It's light-years away

When you just listen to the words
From someone who wants to take hold
Of your will, of your thoughts
Of your mind and soul

People who've lost their own life
Normally try to get by
Inside your world, to lead you on
They cherish when you fall...
11. Sometimes
Sometimes I'm sad and lonely
Somedays because I miss you
You held me tight in your arms
As I came out of darkness

Sometimes I watch you go away
I watch you go away...
Hope you don't cry

Cause in my own stories
I'm ever side by side with you
Somewhere to bind the distance
Somekind of timeless moment

Somewhen I'll let you know
How far you've made me roam
Across the nights, I hear a train
That won't bring you back
But I'll still wait...

I never really lost you
You never really left me
I feel our hearts as one
Every time I gaze
At the moon
