The Wreckage of Stars Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. A Great Mistake (6:50)
I, the burning arrow for the other shore
And seething with a callous rage
A sacred object with a hollow core
And actor on an empty stage

We from the shadow will extend our hands
And turn our gaze towards the flame
The pathways darken as the poison spreads
We languish in this land of waste

I wish for a great mistake
To carry us away
And for an old beginning
Where everything's the same
May this strip our minds away
And lead us to our early graves;
Contorted and exhausted faces,
Soiled and ashamed

Writhe
Your brittle sanctum where your madness grows
A crumbling heart cursed by faith
Within, our visions are like fractured glass
We lick the venom from the blade

The red moon rises as the black rain falls
Revealing the blood upon our hands
The past we harken as the gateways close
Release the plague upon the lands

We saw the signs
And we towed the line
We're lost reflections of forgotten time
Realizing, despising

I wish for a great mistake
To carry us away
And for an old beginning
Where everything's the same
May this strip our minds away
And lead us to our early graves;
Contorted and exhausted faces,
Soiled and ashamed
2. The Fractured One (3:36)
Here it comes again, the fractured one of hostile beauty
In this life, it takes the light from our eyes
Though we try, we are not made to walk away from this,
And we gaze inside, realizing all that's died

Binding, enwinding, seducing, stolen light from our eyes

Who would not hate you for all that you'll never find?
Fear all that's near you and bless all you leave behind

(Fractured)

Binding, enwinding, seducing, stolen light from our eyes

Who would not hate you for all that you'll never find?
Fear all that's near you and bless all you leave behind

(Fractured)

Forced to defend a broken process, a pitiful friend
Let us pretend that this is never needs to end

Here it comes again, the fractured one of hostile beauty
In this life, it takes the light from our eyes
Though we try, we are not made to walk away from this,
And we gaze inside, realizing all that's died

Binding, enwinding, seducing, stolen light from our eyes

Who would not hate you for all that you'll never find?
Fear all that's near you and bless all you leave behind

(Fractured)
3. The Malignant (7:35)
Bereft inside;
Malignant guards the shell with feeble pride

Body lulled to sleep; bound
Bury forms to keep...
Shrieking crooked words; near
Offer all you hold...

In the end an object upon a burning altar...

Body lulled to sleep; bound
Bury forms to keep...
Shrieking crooked words; near
Offer all you hold...

Worship the malignant, this beacon of worthlessness;
Oppose all you love
The glowing one, she moves with fear in her lying eyes;
She holds all you love

In the end an object upon a burning* altar...

Body lulled to sleep; bound
Bury forms to keep...
Shrieking crooked words; near
Offer all you hold...


*The actual lyric sung is "broken", not "burning".
4. This Human Lie Manifest (4:31)
All we own is regret between birth and death,
The human lie manifest
There is no balance to upset, and no one to forget;
This human lie manifest
(Turning and turning)

Time is arrow
Expand and embrace us
Time is arrow
Contract and erase us

All we own is regret between birth and death,
The human lie manifest
There is no balance to upset, and no one to forget;
This human lie manifest
(Turning and turning)

Time is arrow
Expand and embrace us
Time is arrow
Contract and erase us

Here is something to remember
This will all return forever
You are nothing but a filter;
Broken and mislead forever

All we own is regret between birth and death,
The human lie manifest
There is no balance to upset, and no one to forget;
This human lie manifest
(Turning and turning)
5. Withering Waves (6:02)
The place where I have always been free has begun to consume me
I stand along this windswept shore and feel it more and more

You've made your promises, that I have drowned inside
The windswept shore is silent in absence of the tide

The place where I have always been free has begun to consume me
I stand along this windswept shore and feel it more and more
A spirit frayed, a bond was broken; a sudden switch, words were spoken
Below the waves there is proof that we have never known the way

You've made your promises, that I have drowned inside
The windswept shore is silent in absence of the tide

,,,And we stand still, nothing worth changing
No cause to seek within our minds
There will never be another dawn here
A time where I'd feel, a time for taking; and the path to freedom passed us by
Watch the waves and wither away here

In sleep, the sea
In peace, in ruin

You've made your promises, that I have drowned inside
The windswept shore is silent in absence of the tide
6. To the Eye That Leads You (4:57)
To exist is to fear
Fear the I; fear the you
Nothing is ever true
To the eye that leads you

Consequence;

There is a consequence

What if all you need here turns and walks away from you?
What if all you love here never thinks a thing of you?

Nothing is ever true
To the eye that leads you

This is your illness
This is your brain

Condense; compress all that you will never understand
Repress distress, and take comfort in this malady

Consequence;

There is a consequence

What if all you need here turns and walks away from you?
What if all you love here never thinks a thing of you?
7. The Wreckage of Stars (6:40)
Oh, we stand in the rain
And beg for a change
In our idle domain

While stars dance overhead,
The father is dead,
Though his malady spread
8. Shape's Collapse (5:04)
Behold the shape's collapse
It's (sic) sacred time has passed
One last desperate word,
And all distinction blurred

At long last...

The scourge of our eyes removed for all time
A box for a shell, a blank slate for the mind
In stripping away our eternal days,
No longer a beast. no longer a slave to the body

It lies with the body

Force the stone (close)
Tomb of gods (close)
Silence shown (close)
Tomb of gods (close)

Force the stone
Silence shown
Mind alone
All is known

The scourge of our eyes removed for all time
A box for a shell, a blank slate for the mind
In stripping away our eternal days,
No longer a beast. no longer a slave to the body

It lies with the body

Force the stone
Silence shown
Mind alone
All is known
9. Purge (5:06)
I am sick man, old man, I am corpse; and I ask you for nothing
As I force my way to other shores, I'll ask you for nothing

Bind my hands, close my eyes;
Let go of this
None is chance, all is life;
You know of this

I am sick man, old man, I am corpse; and I ask you for nothing
As I force my way to other shores, I'll ask you for nothing

I'll go under, deep below the earth and purge;
Tear out my innards and burn
Turn the mind to darkest light and learn
That none are real with human sight;
This human frame, a most pathetic rite
I'll purge...

Purge
(None are real with human sight)
10. Linear (2:22)
Here’s to us, to the shells we've protected
To our futile hopes, and the selves we've projected
To shed this skin, we’ll drown in the endless waves
Of all our sins and forget everything

I’ll pass on, leaving rain and the stars above
For you to hold; for you to love so much
That you’ll destroy all the things that could have surfaced
It fades away, the wreckage and our "purpose"
