Burden of Truth Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Carlos Acioli
1. Who Am I To Be? (3:56)
In this strange situation
The future is so unclear
And I stop and think about the times
I tried to disappear

So I wait within the endless days
Reaching for the sun

Who am I to be?
You could never see
Always pretending
What you are to me
What am I to say?
When all you do is hate
Got some news
Nobody wins this game
This game

If I say I know the reasons
To implications that you bleed

Never knowing how to feel
Which one of me is real?

Who am I to be?
You could never see
Always pretending
What you are to me
What am I to say?
When all you do is hate
Got some news
Nobody wins this game
Nobody wins this game
It’s all about yesterday
Gonna find a way
Someday

All the signs are there
So I’m on this tear
To right the bloody wrongs
To remain real strong
The approaching end
Threads of life were spent
Tried to justify
The decision’s never mine

If I say I know the reasons
To the unforeseen
I’ve come to clear your conscience
Of the burdens
Of a thousand dreams

So I walk within the endless days
As I’m reaching for the sun

Who am I to be?
You could never see
Always pretending
What you are to me
What am I to say?
When all you do is hate
Got some news
Nobody wins this game
This game
2. Matter Of Time (2:53)
You know it’s just a matter of time
Until we come
To see the light
It’s really not a question
Of whether men had sought
To deify
And so we seek
To cast away the visions of the order
Take away destruction of time
Until it’s over

Will you hold on forever
Through the pain that held you inside
Will you say you’ll never
Never see truth in the lies

The wheels keep spinning around
Inside a world that’s held in doubt
Forever losing sight
Of the things that kept us down

Will you hold on forever
To the change that held you down
Believe you’ll never
Abandon the way that you found

I see the world
Threatened by the darkness
Covered in a haze
Of troubles and sadness
Taken over now
Controlled by the liars
The pilates are the ways
Of the demons
Held inside

Will you hold on forever
Through the pain that held you inside
Will you say you’ll never
Never see truth in the lies

You know it’s just a matter of time
Until we come
To see the light
The wheels keep spinning around
Silence the questions
In your mind
So we seek
To cast away the visions
In our lives
You know it’s just a matter of time
3. Heal You (3:02)
Now I walk alone
Every waking hour
This power
I make my own
I’m not who I’ve been
Everything is changing
Arranging this flight within

They’re looking for something
Racing through this mad life
There’s only one thing
We can take this time

I can show you
I control you
Welcome to my life
I know you
I’ll conceal you
I can heal you
Of what you have become

Now this time’s arrived
Every waking moment
I wanted to feel alive
Breaking from the past
I know I’ll never have to
Go back through
Those places
At long last

All of us falling
On the sacred roads they’ve led us
Hear the calling
They will never forget us

I can show you
I control you
Welcome to my life
I know you
I’ll conceal you
I can heal you
Of what you have become
4. Revelations (2:46)
Days of waiting
Are behind me
I see the moment’s come
Fate is revealed
My body wasted
By this sacrificial pain
What’s the reason
For the damage I sustained

Hear you somewhere
Feel you calling

Don’t want to let you go
Never could let it show
Why do I always trust you
I cannot let it go
I’ve carried on the line
And made the most of time
Waiting for this day to arrive

I wonder if you’re out there
Understand the darkest needs
Are never fair
I’m the prey
That they are hunting down
Turned a slave
For the wearing of the crown

Hear you somewhere
Feel you calling

Are you somewhere
Can you whisper
Hear you calling
Someone listen

Don’t want to let you go
Never could let it show
Why do I always trust you
I cannot let it go
I’ve carried on the line
And made the most of time
Waiting for this day to arrive
5. This Is Your Reality (3:31)
Voices calling out for yesterday
Painting pictures
Of souls who’ve lost the way
Hopes are falling
Through the hands of the betrayed
All searching
For the same thing
Were they ever saved

Tell me what’s inside of you
Is it really over now
Are you falling into silence
As the war divides
All I ask of you
When the willingness is blind
Hold together
Will you ever survive
If this is your reality

Winter’s calling out for a new day
Thought the feeling
Is so long decayed
Running in circles
Longing for the faith
To lead them to a better place
Were they ever saved

Tell me what’s inside of you
Is it really over now
Are you falling into silence
As the war divides
All I ask of you
When the willingness is blind
Hold together
Souls endeavor
Will you ever survive
If this is your reality

How will you deal with things
You perceive as real
What’s left to offer
Time to reach right down
Into what you feel
At the cost of trust
Would they seek you aga in

Pray for the lost
For the meaning has died
Hate for the men
Who betrayed us
Twisting of words
Like the mirrors
Will hide
Knowing your soul still burns
Where do you turn

Tell me what’s inside of you
Is it really over now
Are you falling into silence
As the war divides
All I ask of you
When the willingness is blind
Through the word of God
You painted a world
Full of lies
Hold together
Souls endeavor
Will we ever survive
6. Evermore (2:05)
Enter the death angel’s curse
And the fate
Behind the door
Into the cradle of dawn
Lies a trace of evermore
All the scars
Hide the hate
They have shown
Chosen to fall from
The forces unknown
Out of the darkness we crawl
To the place Evermore

Blood in his eyes
Feel his demise
Total control
Existing as though
You’re resisting the cold

All of the people who tried
To make peace
And they died
All of their fortresses shine
Like the cross
As they ride
Never unfolding the truth
Still unknown
Altering consciousness
Evil has flown
Following mercy alone
The masses have grown

Ruling the streets
Deliver deceit
Deceiver in darkness
Believers are sought
And their souls are possessed

Blood in his eyes
Feel his demise
Total control
Existing as though
You’re resisting the cold

Enter the death angel’s curse
And the fate
Behind the door
Into the cradle of dawn
Lies a trace of evermore
All the scars
Hide the hate
They have shown
Chosen to fall from
The forces unknown
Out of the darkness we crawl
To the place Evermore
7. The Black (3:46)
Into the black
With a final chance to save my soul
Waiting for something
To release me from this hold

I feel the cold wind through me
Like I’ve been set free
I guess it’s never set in stone
I’m headed home

Destruction taking hold
Etched upon your face
It’s all that you can take
Let the demons go

Into the black
With a final chance to save my soul
Waiting for something
To release me from this hold

I’m heading out tonight
A season lives and dies
My inner world is a child
A phantom in the dark
Watch the waves go by
Until they drift apart
Waiting for the end
Let the pain begin

I see the lightning glow
Like the inner child
Watch the waves go by
Let the demons go

Into the black
With a final chance to save my soul
Waiting for something
To release me from this hold
Into the black
With a final chance
To rule the world
Enter the power of the force
That’s taking hold

Dealing with the complications
Pressure from the expectations
When you look inside
At what you chose to hide
Living with the persecution
Problems with the institution
The future’s gone away
And the world is filled with hate

Into the black
With a final chance to save my soul
Nothing but hurt
But the truth of your destiny
Is worse
Into the black
With a final chance
To rule the world
Enter the power of the force
That’s taking hold
8. Messiah (2:46)
Virtual darkness
Imposing disturbance
Forcing of will
Upon the innocents
Dawn of a new day
Losing what they deserved
Kneel down and pray
And hope it will be heard

Still the world keeps turning
Through the maze of lies
I am returning
To replace your lives
Feel them closing in
Follow me this night
Blood is their desire
Enter the new Messiah

Inform the people
The healing will begin
Wrought with evil
Appearing deep within
A soul’s possessions
Converted into sin
I lead the resistance
A fight that we must win

Still the world keeps turning
Through the maze of lies
I am returning
To replace your lives
Feel them closing in
Follow me this night
Blood is their desire
Enter the new Messiah
9. Sentenced (3:46)
The silence grows
Desperation seeping through my skin
Desecration holds
I’m praying for a light within

All the violence within myself
I know you always tried to help
You will never see
The sentence that was handed to me

Just another day of longing
Just another day I hope will bring
The silence of an early morning
Leave it all behind
To find a chance to begin
Again

Spent a life
Confiding in myself
Wasting in this
Final stretch of hell

There’s no sense to anything
While I’m hanging from this string
Only seems to reason
The closer it gets
The harder it is to reach

Just another day of longing
Just another day I hope will bring
The silence of an early morning
Leave it all behind
To find a chance to begin
Again

Why does it always have to end?
I had all the perfect things
Never feels like things will change
All that’s left are fears and shame

Now I’m calling out
But no one ever answers
Already been afforded
All the second chances

There’s no sense to anything
While I’m hanging from this string
Only seems to reason
The closer it gets
The harder it is to reach

Just another day of longing
Just another day I hope will bring
The silence of an early morning
Leave it all behind
To find a
Just another day of torture
Just another reason to begin
Searching for a final answer
Looking back to see
Just who I am
Search for an answer
Again
10. Burden of Truth (5:16)
I walk alone
Along a winding road
Filled with thoughts
Recovering from all left behind
I passed a church
And saw the children
And the world
In their eyes
The greatest gift
We ever could receive

Hold the ways of the Son
Am I the only one
Hold the weight of your soul
In mine
I hope that you are the one
Sent to guide me on
Can’t you see
Nothing can hold me down
I can’t turn away

With your past in disguise
All the pain
Still in your eyes
I know that I must
But I never can trust
Keeping you in the dark
Feel the strange desire
From the passion
In your eyes
Awake and alone
But I’ve just got to know
I’m keeping you in the dark

I wonder if
I would have come here
Not knowing who I am
By the force of the truth
I will stand
So I thank you once again
For giving me the news
And protecting me
Through the hate
That will proceed

Hold the ways of the Son
Changes from now on
Hold the weight of your soul
In mine
I hope that you understand
Held within my hands
Can’t you see
Nothing can hold me down
I can’t turn away

With your past in disguise
All the pain
Still in your eyes
I know that I must
But I never can trust
Keeping you in the dark
Like the wind rushing by
Like a memory deep inside
Awake and alone
But I’ve just got to know
I’m keeping you in the dark

Rulers of the world
Seeing changes
But the choice
Is not your own
It won’t return

Voices with a creed
A reflection
Of a modern prophecy
They will find you

Find a new horizon
In the ways
That we have found
And we’ll find
A better life
Like the times we had

Gotta find a reason
Gotta make it seem alright
Out of all the questions
Something is coming
To bring us closer
To the light
11. Live As One (3:57)
Listen close to the sound
As it travels through the night
How could we live to see
A time when we walk holy ground
Like it was a given right
How could it ever be

All this desperation
Leading us in vein
Hopeless alteration
To the world
We sought to gain

Life has a price to be learned
Through the lessons of our time
How could we ever hear
The cries overcome
As we fought
For the vengeance of a crime
Though it was never clear

All my life I’ve known this
I never would confide
Into a fate of loneliness
I throw my wounds aside
To find you

How can we learn to live as one
How can we run from things we’ve done
Could we ever let it go
How can we learn to live as one
Is there nothing left to follow

All this desperation
Leading us in vein
Hopeless alteration
To the world
We sought to gain

How can we learn to live as one
How can we run from things we’ve done
Could we ever let it go
How can we learn to live as one
Is there nothing left to follow

How can we see
Through another’s eyes
How could we learn
To sympathize
Could patience protect us
From the fall
How can we see
Through the blinding rain
How can we leave this life of pain
Could emotions hide the truth at all
