Horizons Lyrics

Submitted by level LightListener
1. Destined To Remember
If nothing else will come of this
than a crazed experience
I might tell you something I think you know
that you’re keeping out of sight
Lost, but not erased
Time will show

Don’t stray, you’re destined to remember
‘Cause you can’t stop thinking ‘bout the day
I pray you’ll find what you endeavour
and make peace on the way

You must dig into your underworld
There’s secrets waiting there to be found
But brace yourself for a vicious past
So unsafe and so unsound
It’s time to face yourself

Don’t stray, you’re destined to remember
‘Cause you can’t stop thinking ‘bout the day
I pray you’ll find what you endeavour
and make peace on the way

Living with a troubled mind
Defined life and left you in a bind
You took the only road you knew
Been wasting your time, wasting your time
Only you can change your ways
And reluctance will bring you hell to pay
Clear your mind and you’ll be free, yeah
Don’t be wasting your time, wasting your time

Don’t stray, you’re destined to remember
‘cause you can’t stop thinking ‘bout the day
I pray you’ll find what you endeavour
and make peace on the way
2. Never Like This (A Dream)
This is a dream that I have
A glimpse of a world more real
The night is young, my mind is strong
And I walk of paths so unreal

Maybe there’s more than meets the eye
More to this world than we see
And what if what’s true is a lie?
What if this time I’ll be free?

Oh no! It’s just an illusion
It’s never been like this, been like this
Where do I go from here?
Caged in a moment’s reflection
It’s never been like this, been like this
Been like this, been like this, been like this, like this

Help me, I’m in search of something new
And something escapes my sight
And maybe I’ve got answers to question
Questions that lead me to light

Oh no! It’s just an illusion
It’s never been like this, been like this
Where do I go from here?
Caged in a moment’s reflection
It’s never been like this, been like this
Been like this, been like this, been like this, like this

I know, it’s just an assertion
It’s always been like this, been like this
And there's no way out of here
I know, beyond my conception
I've always begged for this, searched for this
Longed for this, strived for this, wanted this (like this)
3. Hear My Call
(Hear my call!
Hear my call!)

Running through the wilderness
Determined to succeed
Improving myself by the seconds
Relentless ‘til I’m beat
My whole life is repetition
I don’t know how to end
The dominant obsession that I’m
Destined to amend

Step by step through burning hell
One man’s wasteland, hours to kill

Next thing I remember
is the rock against my head
The devastating heat wave’s gone
There’s a cold night sky instead
Both my legs are paralyzed
My throat is sore an dry
I can’t help but thinking
My time’s up, this is goodbye

Forward crawling, arms in pain
My strong determination remains

(Hope descends every devastating hour I spend
Heaven knows when it will end)
Can you hear my call?
Who’s coming to my rescue?
I’m losing the light in my eyes
Into an endless sky I stare
And my life just passed in review

(Hear my call!
Hear my call!)

Hear my call!
Who’s coming to my rescue?
I’m losing the light in my eyes
Into the break of dawn I stare
Now there’s someone out there calling my name
That’s when I realize
I’m already hanging in the air

(Hope descends every devastating hour I spent
Will the gods decide to make amends?
Heaven knows whenever this’ll end
I’m running out of time
And hope descends every devastating hour I spent
Will the gods decide to make amends?
Heaven knows whenever this’ll end)

(Hear my call!
Hear my call!
Hear my call!)
4. Airways
Inhale, exhale, stay awake
Keep talking, don’t give in
The arms of death are reaching out
to decompose your skin
Hold tight and the wings of faith will take you higher
Hold on tight and you’ll be all right

Patched up, enfeebled and disqualified
From the everyday I had before
My independence cut down to the bone
They told me I’d live, but life is a bore

There’s a will but there’s no way
There’s an idea but no clay
I’m reduced to observing
The life work of others with no voice to sing

Save me from the fate that I’ve been given, save me
My doorway disappeared and everything turned passé

I see the worldly life through different eyes
Now I’ve discerned what lies ahead
Once so important’s suddenly trivial
Time drags when life’s confined to a bed

There’s a fortune but no door
There’s an island but no oar
I’m reduced to creating
Vast illusions, daydreaming

Airways
I’m running up the steps to catch my airways
It’s child’s play once you get the hang of it
It’s my way
Back to freedom

All night I live the life I once believed in
All this time I’m close to fine
All night I live the dream I once imagined
Hold on tight

Airways
I’m running up the steps to catch my airways
It’s child’s play once you get the hang of it
It’s too late
To be saved in a world that let you down
It’s too late
5. Revolution Come Undone
Come wake up, be serious
You don’t have a clue?
The world is turning upside down
and it might affect you too!
Tonight there will be miracles,
but nothing left to see
'Cause every alteration made
is forged in memory

Turn your pages, you’ve waited for ages
A whole new story, brand new display

Wars have come and gone
No one cares who won
Generation next
Fighting other battles
Where survivors rule
There’s always a fool
To ridicule and scorn
Revolution come undone

Hidden from the untrained eye
But right beneath your thought
A higher state of consciousness
The open mind’s resort
And if you’d only dare to search
Your deeper inner space
You might find there’s more to life
Than the reflection of your face

Turn your pages, we’ve waited for ages
A whole new story, brand new display

Wars have come and gone
No one cares who won
Generation next
Fighting other battles
Where survivors rule
There’s always a fool
To ridicule and scorn
Revolution undone

Do you feel this world has come to cease?
Like a worn and battered masterpiece
Could be blessed, but you won’t see

Wars have come and gone
No one cares who won
Generation next
Fighting other battles
Where survivors rule
There’s always a fool
To ridicule and scorn
Revolution come undone
6. Breach Of Faith
Come on home, son! Part from where you are
There’s nothing left to you to be there for
Faithful soldier, you made your mark by far

The time has come, step out of the spot
We’ll find you a place where the heroes of war
take up the lives they used to lead before

We’ll respect you
We’ll perfect you
We’ll protect you
For nothing
We’ll neglect you
We’ll deject you
We’ll reject you
For nothing

Dreadful memories haunt me all the time
How fierce we were in the fields of battle
Stand up straight, soldier, this is not a crime

Don’t be afraid, you must carry on
The peacemaking warrior serving his country
It could be the end if you opened your eyes
and turned to disagree

We’ll respect you (You promised to help me)
We’ll perfect you (A breach of faith)
We’ll protect you
For nothing ('Cause these days I’m nothing to you)
We’ll neglect you (I was a fool to believe you)
We’ll deject you (Why did you lie?)
We’ll reject you
For nothing

The damages I saw spread chaos in my dreams
When I can’t tell right from wrong, my actions go to the extremes
Every now and then I tend to disappear
I lock the world away, I feel there’s no room for me here
I used to be the guy with strength enough for two
Affectionate and kind, whatever you might ask I would do
Now I’m feeling odd, no spark of life, no gun
The fight against injustice only just begun

You promised to help me
But why did you lie?
You’ll respect me
You’ll protect me for nothing

We’ll respect you (I was a fool to believe you)
We’ll perfect you (A breach of faith)
We’ll protect you
For nothing (I’m nothing to you)
We’ll neglect you (I was a fool to believe you)
We’ll deject you (A breach of faith)
We’ll reject you
For nothing

Every now and then I tend to disappear
I lock the world away, I feel there’s no room for me here
Long forgotten vet, a soldier with no gun
The fight against injustice only just begun
7. Mindlessness
You turn your face!
Are you somewhat surprised to find
all that you were and once believed
is now but a lost state of mind?
Back in time,
when the future felt infinite,
you fought like a king to make a change
Whatever the cost, no regrets

Respectable in all directions
Wheedled into false affections
The ideal tomorrow
was changed all along
As you grew older,
the fire burned a little colder
'til one day it died out
Ideology turned to mindlessness

There were times
when you could’ve done so much more
Than saving yourself, neglectfully
Unlike how you were before
Your world disbanned
And all that mattered was making gold
Regardless of how
You turned your back on the dogma you had, broke the mold

Wrapped up in your selfish dreams
The world unfolds in perfect schemes
With chaos lurking underneath
The air is getting hard to breathe
Wrapped up in your selfish dreams
The world unfolds in perfect schemes
But where’s your lifetime guarantee?
The time will come and you will see

Respectable in all directions
Wheedled into false affections
The ideal tomorrow
was changed all along
As you grew older,
the fire burned a little colder
'til one day it died out
Ideology turned to mindlessness

You turn your face!
Are you somewhat ashamed to learn
That you’ll never give up your way of life?
Just mind your own concern!

Respectable in all directions
Wheedled into false affections
The ideal tomorrow
was changed all along
As you grew older,
the fire burned a little colder
'til one day it died out
Ideology turned to mindlessness
Mindlessness
Total Mindlessness
8. Horizons
Cut me out, let me go
from these hollow winds that blow
Let me go let me go, it’s an outrageous misfortune
I wanted to seek, I wanted to find
I wanted only things that once were mine

“It’s cold and dark
As the spirit closes in on him
He’s a dreamer in mind
Just another believer
who wastes no time
Searching answers endlessly”

Riding on the wave of your hand
Over land of symbols that I don’t understand
Trying to embrace your new world
This journey’s unpredictable, a mystery unfurled
Travelled far to see you again
But every dream I had of you was dreamed up in vain
Now I’m trying hard to break up the ice
To free the man I used to call my friend, but it’s no dice

It’s crazy, crazy

Once in time, far away
In the land of white and grey
I discovered the truth
What I’d missed for so long
is the very thing that keeps you going on

Countless horizons
They once were so fine
Call it thievish, call it fate
I believe it’s possible to recreate
And they all could be mine
Newborn horizons
They dawn upon me
Call it thievish, call it fate
I believe it’s possible to recreate
Now I’m finally free (newborn horizons)

Riding on the wave of your hand
Over land of symbols that I don’t understand
Trying to embrace your new world
This journey’s unpredictable, a mystery unfurled
9. A Dream Within A Dream
This is a dream that we share
A ball full of thoughts in our minds
The night is young, the game is on
And all else falls way behind

It’s so real, this dreamy invention
It’s never been like this, been like this
The world is twisted around
And we can’t control this creation
But it’s never been like this, been like this
Been like this, been like this, been like this…

This is a dream going on
Where we can decide what we are and where
We may dissolve the ground if we fall
And the dream might turn into a nightmare

Maybe we grew tired of living on
this narrow path that we walked upon
And maybe we could build it somewhere
A new world made of dreamers

It’s so real, this dreamy invention
We know but reality’s outdone by far
Now we can be who we are
Though we can’t control this creation
It’s never been like this, been like this
Been like this, been like this, been like this…

There’s a magical current
of belief in the air
as we let ourselves in
But when we open our eyelids
and step into the dream,
a kind of vision presents itself

A man with lonely eyes
Glazed from all they’ve seen
Worn down from forced goodbyes
So many has-beens

Something’s taken hold of my feelings
Something’s taken hold of my soul
I try to crack a hole in the ceiling
But it grows out of hand
I’m losing my self-control

Why would you leave me?
And why would you give up the world we created?
I thought we could make it
and now utopia is gone

King of the promised land
Abundance of luxury
With powers to make a stand
So handsome I’ll be!

This is everything that I dreamed of
This is how my life should have been
But hidden in the back of this dreamstuff
A notion so grim: something is missing

Why would you leave me?
And why would you give up the world we created?
I thought we could make it
Now I’ve been abandoned
And why, after all we’ve been through?
Utopia was you

All the fires in side me
keep on burning my tears
when they should have been shed
In the midst of a breakdown,
I’m disturbingly calm
Am I living or dead?

There’s a place I long to see
that resembles home
Where the sky is dressed in blue
and I am citizen unknown
And I wish that you’ll be there
Awaiting my return
To the simple lives we knew
I guess you live and learn

My kingdom finally fell
Crashed by loneliness
The wondrous heaven turned to hell
Less is more con more is less

But it’s a dream within a dream
‘Cause there’s no way back
The sleep and I won’t separate

So here I am standing
One step from landing in time
So I may rectify my crime
Tossed through the layers
Demolishing chaos
The dream is gone

Maybe it’s a dream within a dream
Maybe things are not what they seem
Maybe…
Maybe it’s a dream within a dream
Maybe things are not what they seem
Just maybe…
10. Erasure
I call your name
for the seventh time
And when the night sets in,
I’ll retrace my crime

I put out your flame,
and still the smoke keeps coming back for more
I recall the sound
of your dreams against the floor
Erasure
Erasure, rewind
Your life
Not here, no more

Wasting
I’ve been wasting
All this time I tried so hard
to figure out my world
Wasting
I’ve been merely wasting
Hours that remain unsung
by my voice

I call your name
for the umpteenth time
And when the light sets in,
I’ll retain my crime
Erasure
Erasure, rewind
My life
Not here, no more
