Book of Secrets Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Desert of the Lost Souls (0:53)
-Imagine a world which would have no consequences for our actions.
No space, no food, no respect for life or death or god, just a crowded desert of lost souls
looking down on top of the world.
2. Walking on Top of the World (7:04)
You won't find me laughing,
I don't think I can cry
I'm mentally wasted and you're the reason why
You won't find me guilty,
You won't find me wrong
You won't find me home
Cos I'm already gone

Sleeping deeper
But I still wake up on the wrong side of the bed
Sleeping deeper I'm sleeping deeper
But it's way too soon I can't sleep in the middle yet,
When it's over it's over

I'm walking on top of the world
and dancing on the memories of the past
I'm walking on top of the world
The trouble with forever is forevers made to last

I'm suddenly flying, I'm finally sure
cos all that you left me is stronger



-Einstein overturned present reality by adding a fifth part, a fifth dimension.
The depth between good and evil, the greatest divide of all.


3. Book of Secrets (7:42)
-Make secret these words and seal up the book until the time of the end.

Too many lines to read between
Too many minds are coming close to the
Are you the named are you pure
Dare you believe in something never seen before

Secrets soon to be secrets soon to be told
Take another look at the open book
Secrets soon to be secrets soon to be told
Take another look at the open book

The book of secrets
The words of wiser men than I
The book of secrets
The code is falling falling from the sky
Falling from the sky, falling from the sky

Is this the dawn of something new
The clock is ticking and there's nothing I can do
In place of guessing what's to come
Unlock the secrets close your eyes
And kiss the sun



At the close of the twentieth century,
We are threatened
With the kind of chaos that
The world has never faced before.
We have built weapons
That can destroy human civilisation in a single day,
These weapons may be on the loose.



-But neither in heaven nor earth was there a single one able to open the scroll or look into
it. And as for you men of vision everything will become like the words of the book that has been
sealed up.
4. When Heaven Calls Your Name (6:20)
-And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.
No mourning, no outcry nor pain be anymore.

Suddenly it's colder, suddenly the sun has gone
But if the real world's over then your life has just began

And if I promise not to cry, will you promise not to die
Live on inside of me you stay forever young forever young

When heaven calls your name
Your spirit stays alive
Safe in my heart
When heaven calls your name
You are free and you can fly
Here in my heart

And if time can heal the pain
Then I won't be healed again
If your light went out too soon
Then I'll burn the flame for you
Burn the flame for you

5. It's Not Over (Until It's Over) (5:02)
A change of heart is no excuse to turn me loose
And I play the part but the fool in me could never hear you

Fools love
My fingers ache from holding on
Fools love
The clouds that hide your love are gone

It's not over until it's over
Flying in the face of love
It's not over until it's over
Power of the heart is strong enough

All of the time
Feeling wheels are turning over now
Read the signs
There's so much more to rediscover

Say when
It's easy to replace one more
Say when
The answer is worth waiting for

6. Do You Dream of Angels (5:46)
Now your sleeping now your still
Softly tell you how I feel
And if you dream a thousand years
I still be here, forever here...

Hold me in your sleepy eyes
Hold me closer, whisper me goodnight
Let the moon light have it's way through the silence
I can hear you say

Do you dream of angels
Well I do when I'm dreaming of you
Do you dream of angels
I do when I'm dreaming of you
I dream of angels when I see you

Fill me with your symphony
Overtures of love in harmony
In your silent journeying
Take me with you...Can I hear you say

Now your sleeping now your still
Softly tell you how I feel

7. Seven Days Into Nevermore (6:49)
-We don't know with what weapons world war three will be fought, but world war four will be
fought with sticks and stones. This is not the end of predicted danger.

It's your disgrace
But you made it well,
So the world can tell
It's your face
It's on the fire that burns inside
And I see the light

The colours of your heart
And they're slowly changing
The colours of your mind
And they're slowly fading

It's all in vain,
So time does what it will,
Try asking whose to blame,
For a throw away existence
I see...the light, the way
Nothing of the past
And were disappearing
And nothing gonna last
The end is nearing

Changes changing
Seven days into nevermore
Learning turning,
Seven days into nevermore

You're a grain of sand
In the desert that was mankind
I don't understand
How all of us are blinded,
By the light, blinded

Turn another page, and there's no beginning
We are just at an age, and time is winning


Seven days...nevermore, grain of sand
You know the score, desert man...
He needs one more, seven days to nevermore

To nevermore, to nevermore, forevermore
8. Miracles and Dreams (8:02)
So much for reaping what you sow
Isn't time the enemy again
Believing cuts deeper than you know
Never was a natural believer in the end

Through these eyes
Images and stories
Left unheard, slowly burn
In these skies are centuries of promises
Unlearned never learned

Holding out what's coming in
Keeps the heart from burning

With those miracles and dreams
Taking all my senses and colouring between
Miracles and dreams
How can I get by without the harmony within, do you know
Tomorrow could be taken from your hand,
Yes it can

After this wave your world goodbye
And never kiss your love again

If I'm strong enough
And live long enough
I still believe in those


-The distinction between past, present and future is only an illusion.

9. Stranger Days (To Come) (5:40)
It's a personal feeling how your world is turning
You can blind your eyes, but, you decide
And something is aching
And your world is breaking down

There's a whole lot more than this
That you're dying to resist
There's a whole lot more than this

There are stranger days to come
When all the rivers run dry
There are stranger days to come...

You can almost taste it,
But you can replace it
There's a homegrown madness going on
Get to know your feelings
The emotion can explode

There's a wider world I hear
Let your conscience disappear
With an easy ride from here


There's no sun in the sky forever
I see stranger days than these
In my heart in my dreams
When the world stops spinning me forever...

On and on and on and on and on
Forever, forever
Forever, and ever, forever, forever
I see stranger days...
