The Lion and the Jester Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. At the End of It All
Only the blind man can see
The apple falls far from the tree
You’ll never hear the black bird’s song
A kiss of life won’t last too long
At the end of it all

Unstitch your heart if it stings
A puppet cut loose from his strings
You’ll never hear the black bird’s song
A kiss of life won’t last too long
At the end of it all

Forgive me angels for broken truth
I’ve seen how they made our kings
Drop down and bow on their knees

It’s time I beg for
The swaying pendulum
Before it sleeps inside its glass cage
And god I’ll miss you
The pain won’t go away
Even if our feelings stay alive
An empty stare
A gasp for air
In the end you’ll hear
A mother’s call her hero falls
At the end of it all

Forgive me angels for broken truth
I’ve seen how they made our kings
Forgive me angels for broken truth
I’ve seen how they made our kings
Drop down and bow on their knees
Drop down and bow on their knees

We ignored the sacrifice
Laughed while walking on thin ice
If only our young night
Had just one more day to live
2. Remember Me
Once we were here
Now I don’t even know your name
Your shadow lingers near
As friendships disappear
I’m holding on

Why would you save me now
I guess you just figured it out
In time you’ll pray

Here crows crying
Its not the first time
I feel like you’ve forgotten me
Cold chill down your spine
You just realised
I remember you
Do you remember me

The truth never lies
Freedoms chains kept you away from me
Who knew friendships died
You followed the serpent’s eye
I’m holding on
Why would you save me now
I guess you just figured it out
You’ll see some day

Here crows crying
Its not the first time
I feel like you’ve forgotten me
Cold chill down your spine
You just realised
I remember you
Do you remember me

A lonely path has found
A mislead child too young to fly
A warm feeling
Turned out to be betrayals kiss

Here crows crying
Its not the first time
I feel like you’ve forgotten me
Cold chill down your spine
You just realised
I remember you
Do you remember me
3. Moonchild
Don’t tell the dawn
The stars protect the day
They disappear
Or were they ever there

My light reveals
The shadow that lives in you
Its crippled psalm
Why’s it hurt so bad

I beg for salvation
You wrote your own song

Why’d you have to pretend
Now moonchild cries again
The hand that protects grips harder
Wipe the tears from his eyes
Moonchild’s wings will pierce the sky
Another fate raised for the slaughter

A promise can break
Only so many times
The ties unfold
And bleed out memories
My mind was weak
You lied when stars were read
I trusted you
Go burn in hell

The gift of creation
Is now embarrassed by you

Why’d you have to pretend
Now moonchild cries again
The hand that protects grips harder
Wipe the tears from his eyes
Moonchild’s wings will pierce the sky
Another fate raised for the slaughter

Slaughter slaughter
Shame on your heart

Why’d you have to pretend
Now moonchild cries again
The hand that protects grips harder
Close your eyes go to sleep
If you wake my heart will weep
Moonchild in the end I hope she loves you
4. Demon Eyes
They’ll hunt you like the hounds of hell
Tear the flesh right from your bone
In time you’ll find
They’ll follow the road to your demise

I cannot run from a thought
I cannot feel love just anger
With courage you say I’ll run from you
But demon eyes have seen through hope before

And now the nights are growing cold
Until they break your fortress down
You’ll burn alive
As dead black wings infect the sky

I cannot run from a thought
I cannot feel love just anger
With courage you say I’ll run from you
But demon eyes have seen through hope before

I cannot run from a thought
I cannot feel love just anger
With courage you say I’ll run from you
But demon eyes have seen through hope before

Have seen through hope before
My demon eyes
5. Last Forever
What was I supposed to do
It brought me to you
In the end

Sing to me once again
This pain you put me in
I’m torn

Breath was all I saw
That walk within a cold December
Tried to make you see
My pain

I left to forget you but I won’t be long
As I pray that the winds won’t fade
Quietly listening to our final song
But this moment won’t last forever

I built shelter from the rain
My wisdom born from pain
But it fails

Your heart eclipsed the feather
May you live forever
And suffer life

Temptations caused my fears to decay
The clouds rest as innocence fades
The silence speaks for itself

I left to forget you but I won’t be long
As I pray that the winds won’t fade
Quietly listening to our final song
But this moment won’t last forever

I left to forget you but I won’t be long
As I pray that the winds won’t fade
Quietly listening to our final song
But this moment won’t last forever
Forever
6. No More Tales to Tell
His hand shut our eyes
As he promised us
That the moonlight had faded

I’ve seen shining dark
And the queen of hearts
Let me in I’ll unhinge your mind

Dreamers walk behind me
On through the night

No more tales to tell
No more tales to tell

We can now tell trust
From the touch of man
Rays of light gave back our sight

You’ve seen your demons
Your love stole your heart
Your corrupt lies have failed
Scream as we dream beyond you
Hide in the night

The protection of the darkness fails once more
No more tales to tell
Hear him shout again
And the boy who cried assassin would rather see the wolf
Now the lies are carved in his grave

The protection of the darkness fails once more
No more tales to tell
Hear him shout
And the boy who cried assassin would rather see the wolf
Now the lies are carved in his grave
7. Why Angels Cry
instrumental
8. Faded Away
Frost covers your eyes
I won’t let go
Our story lied
I feel alone

The clocks frail hands are bleeding now
From holding on to my breaking heart

I tried to find the lie inside
When my end was near
Your hands held me dear
You were always there for me

When lights go out and walls cave in
Will you still believe
My nightmares are done
They felt so real
Why can’t I find you
Your footprints faded away

Do we learn how to fly
Or are we just a second in time

I’ll stay awake for your last breath
You faded away to stop me from mine

I tried to find the lie inside
Though I didn’t know
When youth blinded eyes
Your hands wiped my tears

When lights go out and walls cave in
Will you still believe
My nightmares are done
They felt so real
Why can’t I find you
Your footprints faded away

Now you’re gone
You fade away

When my end was near
Your hands held me dear
You were always there for me

When lights go out and walls cave in
Will you still believe
My nightmares are done
They felt so real
Why can’t I find you

My nightmares are done
They felt so real
Why can’t I find you
Your footprints faded away
9. My Last Song
Stop her singing
I can’t
This should all be mine
The wolf stalks divine
And I still hear her laughter

The poet and the shadow
Twisted irony
The departure of the sun masks his heart

Your desires caress my intent
Thoughts trapped in abeyance
I will close my eyes and forfeit it all
For you I sing my last song

Silent tears have fallen
From forgotten stars
The final note played from Endymion’s song

Your desires caress my intent
Thoughts trapped in abeyance
I will close my eyes and forfeit it all
For you I sing my last song

He stands praying for the moonlight
Thoughts trapped in abeyance
I will close my eyes and forfeit it all
For you I sing my last song
My last song
10. The Song That You Deserved
I’ll never forget our time
The falling sand fades from our eyes
You meant more than the air I breathe
What went wrong why did I not believe

Can you feel my heart beat
What we had was real not a fantasy
When you see my heart bleed
Remember how much I cared
Then watch me disappear

In stone I carved the memories
Upon the stars I begged for a sign
My heart unstrung the moment I left
The pain we felt I will never forget

If you want take the night
I will still have the day
If you can catch the swan
The crow is all I need
If you must take my faith
Burn all innocence
But never again
Take my love away from me

Can you hear my whisper
Can you kiss my eyes so that I can show you
How the leaf begs for sunlight
But shadows kiss your weak heart
And leaves it so

I never wrote the song that you deserved
Inner demons lust betrayed my fragile heart
As black wings guard the lifeless flame

Remember that you are always mine
11. The Lion and the Jester
Across his stars
The book seems far
But it’s right beside the crescent moon
We kill for a name
Feel pride but no shame
Look at what this worlds become

Come to the light
Come here and share this dance with me

A bitter mind
A soul that’s blind
Eye for an eye
See illusions synchronized
Distorted thoughts unveiling to you
The lion and the Jester

Poisoned beauty
Seeds grew the tree
Leave it to our hearts to destroy love
A statue of sin
A snake and a grin
Smiles at what this worlds become

Come to the light
Come here and share this dance with me

A bitter mind
A soul that’s blind
Eye for an eye
See illusions synchronized
Distorted thoughts unveiling to you
The lion and the Jester

I can’t sleep but I still dream
Of a place where I belong
Dance with me
A waltz to show what you can’t see

A bitter mind
A soul that’s blind
Eye for an eye
See illusions synchronized
Distorted thoughts unveiling to you
The lion and the Jester
12. Starlit Eyes
Your lips of poison they weaken me
Your starlit eyes amazing
You’re in control can’t you see
You had my heart for eternity

Take my hand baby walk with me
Share your troubles and your deepest dreams
Were in a place where nothing is what it seems

Tell me why have you abandoned me
Forgive your soul when you look at me
You’re my angel with broken wings
Falling further away from me

Tides of memories they’re crushing me
In a spineless world with no empathy
Corrupted love overpowering
Love left to grow in an empty seed

Your constant lies are wounding
Two world’s apart hearts left to bleed
We’ve burnt this bridge too many times
But I still remember your starlit eyes

Tell me why have you abandoned me
Forgive your soul when you look at me
You’re my angel with broken wings
Falling further away from me
Away from me

Don’t go don’t go
Don’t go

Tell me why have you abandoned me
Forgive your soul when you look at me
You’re my angel with broken wings
Falling further away from me
Away from me
