Ten More Tales... Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Day Breaker (4:22)
Come to the edge of reason embrace the sun in place of night
Come to your senses sometime never witness an understanding
Before the dawn surrenders light

Damn the dawn for turning my world red before too long my perfect night is over
Damn the dawn tomorrow is calling again before too long

Enter the realms of madness open the doors and close your eyes
Entertain thoughts of endless wonder call for the visionary
Call for the one who reads the skies

Damn the dawn it takes the deepest breath away before too long another night is over
Damn the dawn turn your world your own sweet way before too long

Day breaker are you the silent sinner day breaker so unpredictable
Day breaker live on and on forever day breaker give up your forgiven dawn

You are the breaker of my promises do you have something I can keep
You are the keeper of my yesterdays give me something that I need
2. Prisoner of Pride (5:53)
There's a time to feel
And a time to fear
Turn around and walk away from here
There's no mystery
No catch
If you will
Paralyze your paradise
Or the next man will

Where's your superstition now
All you true believers
Where's your so called sacred cow
Where is it now

One small victory
And your soldiers all go home
It takes more than that
To trade your pieces for a whole
Circumstances force your hand
So you say
Satisfy yourself
You'll live to die another day

Sell your only saving grace
You grand achiever
Nothing hurts like second place
I see it now

Your prisoner of pride
Come on feel the rain
Come taste another kind of freedom
Your prisoner of pride
You conceal the pain
Come see the other side of freedom
3. Savage Tears (7:07)
Slow down pour a glass
Of what gets you through the day
Send all your senses far away
Slow down I'll whisper words
You don't want to hear
It's too late
But it's now or never

How many times can one heart bleed
Spread your golden wings and fly
A subtlety change but change indeed
Brings me to the final lullaby

After savage tears
Can you take a breath when there's nothing left
After savage tears
When all the life is gone when it's really gone

So far satisfaction hides away from me
Maybe you're the remedy
Oh you are closer now to no return
One heart slows and one grows faster

Close your eyes and go to sleep
Send a flickering goodbye
Closing down your soul for keeps
Feeds a need and keeps me so alive

Let me ask you one more question
Even though you can't answer me
Was the euphoria so deep
Could you feel the savage silence
Why don't you answer me
You never answer me
4. Under the Spell (5:07)
It's dark so dark I've been lying alone for days
It's cold so cols I'm alive can I still be saved

Have you ever been lonely have you ever been that far
Are you sure of the meaning do you know do you care who you are

Too far so far there's a journey I just can't make
From here to your heart is a million miles away

Can you feel the confusion can you reach that far
Under no disillusion will you ever get back to the start

Close your eyes you're falling under the spell
Look inside you're falling under the spell
Close your eyes you're falling under the spell
Look inside you're falling under the spell

And it goes that far every breath knows where you are
5. Blind Man (6:51)
There's a place that's soft and warm it's a shelter from the storm
There's a whisper in the air if I call you will you hear

Pull me in I'm a drowning man breath in all of the love you can
Pull me in your arms again one more long cold mile to cross

When the blind man calls tonight remember your darkest hours
When the blind man calls tonight uncover the love that's in your hands

Whisper nightime into day blow the dark clouds far away
Be my island show me sun give me sand to walk upon

Make the dawn come around again silver sun burning through the rain
Make me new make me see again touch the hand then heal the heart
6. About to Burn (5:20)
Why am I taking all your time
All I want is what was mine
Am I talking to your inner feelings
Time didn't conjure up a cure
Is there anybody more
I can't turn away forever

Who's to lose who's to win
It's all about the state you're in
Who's to know

It's all about to burn wind has changed the fire has turned
It's all about to burn just like it never started
It's all about to burn take away my better days because
It's all about to burn

Nothing's for nothing so I've heard
There's a reason this occurred
I'm not talking 'bout your superstition
Easy or not the time has come
Face the new or turn and run
I'm not llable for your condition
7. Under Innocence Wing (1:21)
8. Sins of the World (4:48)
Do you feel any fever any changes at all
In your truth a deceiver
Stranded and desperately cold

Branded the enemy, loosing the dignity
Bring on the effigy
Bring on the puppet to bear the load
Carry the load

If hope is your savior when destiny calls
Who will be braver you or the puppet
Saver of souls drowning in dangerous echo-less holes
If hope is your savior and faith is your friend
Then charity's hiding again

Bathing in sympathy praising the apathy
Bring on the effigy
Bring on the puppet to bear the load

Speak of the brave
Then they will come
Only to bathe in the warmth
Of the Sun
Speak of the just
Then it is done
Someone will pray for
The sins of the world
9. The Darker Side (4:32)
I've crumbled to this too far
My life has come to this so far
The darker side of me
Comes and goes as the sea
The night is just the same so far

You were the fire to light my way
You were my light my night my day

Standing in the window eyes upon the moon
Hoping that the memories
Will leave your spirit soon
The burning never dies the calm is lost inside
This life won't set me free so far
10. Ten More Tales of Grand Illusion (7:31)
Go wash your conscience clean the way it's never been
The eyes and ears surround you
Hesitation takes it's turn anticipation burns
Enough to light the way before you

Silence is broken into nothing more than lies
Just another token telling just for the surprise

Ten more tales of grand illusion
Ten more tales of life

Beyond your inner soul the heart controls the mind
The mind was made to wonder
And if nothing more is said when all your truths are read
The masses are left to ponder

Another empty promise another empty lie
Glorify imagination try to justify
