The Middle of Nowhere Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Carlos Acioli
1. In This Life (5:42)
If we're losing all we've come to know
Are we justified in letting go?

I could never change the world in this life
Everything is hanging on a thin line

Standing in a different place
Still it won't erase so many things
I looked right over lost among
This madness I've chosen
Now that it's gone and there's no trace
Could have been the one to guide you
Through your darkest days

Ain't gonna run this time
It's all played out
I'll stand right here
Face the wrath you give

I've dealt with the crime
I'm over doing time
Got to clear it out
It's my time to live

Stay awake 'till light
There's no end in sight
Ain't gonna lose this fight
It' my chance for flight

I've held on too long
To things that went wrong
It was far overdue
I'd erase it all for you
I'd erase it all for you

I could never change the world in this life
Everything is hanging on a thin line

I could never change the world
I could never change the world
Are we're losing all we've come to know?
I could never change the world
Are we justified in letting go?
I could never change the world

I could never change the world in this life
Everything is hanging on a thin line
2. All That Remains (5:12)
Now, I can see I need more than time
Time to understand this life
All that remains are the things that never changed
You need more than I could provide
More than what you feel inside
You know the pain so familiar
Who's to gain?

It's a one-way situation
Running through my mind
In a world of desolation
The souls we left behind
In this mass confusion
Ringing in my head
Through all the past illusions
I see you there a silent stare

Why, why should truth have its cost?
This reality is my loss to find my peace
Is the hardest thing to reach
So we ride dividing lines
And we keep on buying time
We play this game
And there's no good time to change

It's a one-way situation ...

Memories locked in safe places
Been through shock and seen the faces
Can someone hear me now?
Can someone show me?

All that seemed just the right way
Was a lie sent to betray
Time's torment never complete
Lives for rent
So easy to deceive
So easy to believe

Now, I can see I need more than time ...

It's a one-way situation ...

Where will the souls remain?
Drowning in pools of shame. All that remains!
3. Open Season (5:45)
I know you're looking for something
Trying to find a way
To bring me down
Surrounded by these thoughts
I'm closing in on a victim
Who'll never be found

Looking to justify the reasons
For the torture
You're spreading around
So disconnected from the real world
Your salvation
Coming from the underground
You found, the blood is spilling

Now it's open season
No one's found a reason
Why you hat to
Hide your true intent
Beneath your cries
You offered no redemption
Only misconceptions
Along the way
You wore your cruel disguise
No reasons here inside

Souls turn empty
Nothing's left
Got to remind me
Of every last regret
For once you've got to
Stay away
I can't stand you
Coursing through my veins
In chains, the blood is spilling

Now it's open season ...

I sense the end
I begin to sweat
The aggravation is
So near death
You know we ain't
Seen nothing yet
Contemplate your final regrets
Don't forget, the blood you're spilling

Now it's open season ...
4. Holding On (5:45)
Look in the past in times you'll see
(The broken pieces of your life)
Everything that was in focus
(Broke apart before your eyes)
Nights you shook with cold despair
(That you really couldn't bear)
Then you scream to find there's no one there

Look into the face of a crying disgrace
Lies deafeat you time's deceived you
You can't take it anymore

You know it ain't so hard to break you
Did you know how far they'd take you?
Can you see the scars upon you?
Still you face the nights alone
Everything is falling by the wayside
And its calling you to find the reasons why

You're just holding on
Can't you see what's wrong?
Look at what you've got
Find out if it's worth
Holding on - Holding on

Your thoughts come through in only shades
(Thins seem deep within your gray)
In this out of mind experience
(Only darnkess will exist)
Remember days we used to show
(These deep divisions that we know)
Apparitions seen so long ago

Look into the face of a crying disgrace
The situation got you breaking
You can't take it anymore

You know it ain't so hard to break you ...

Look into the face of a crying disgrace
Lies deafeat you time's deceived you
You can't take it anymore

You know it ain't so hard to break you ...
5. Cynical Ride (5:33)
Sometimes when you think
Ther's a way out of this situation
Somehow the unforeseen comes
Leading you back to the aggravation

Can't you feel the hours
Wasting away?
You're waiting to fall apart

Don't you fear all the demons inside?
It's not the image
Of an innocent mind
In the midst of your cynical ride
Taking its toll - Taking its toll
As it tears you deep inside
Feel it staring you drown?
As it takes you against the tide
Feel the weight coming down

Controversy sells like your soul
As you melt in your hole
While the treachery reappears
Resurrecting your fears

Can't you feel the hourglass
Counting your days?
In this impossible race

Don't you fear all the demons inside?
It's not the image
Of an innocent mind
In the midst of your cynical ride
Taking its toll - Taking its toll
As is tears you deep inside
Feel it staring you down?
As it takes you against the tide
Feel the weight coming down

Mayhem feeds the chaos
Feeding the frenzy of all things lost
Feeling normal these days?
You don't have to search hard to find your grave

Can't you feel the hourglass
Counting your days?
While you're fading away

Don't you fear all the demons inside? ...
6. Hollow (5:00)
See the raging hearts
Waiting to explode
Tripping in the dark
They shift to overload
All they ask is to return
It surrounds you
Releasing all the pain
All the troubled times
Carrying that dead weight

I'm crushing the barriers of time
Keeping the hollow down inside
Away from the troubles that I've known
Waiting for the truth to finally show

Run alone again
On dark and winding roads
I reflect upon
This twisted web I've sewn
It's so hard to return
Have they found me?
The light begins to fade
And I know it's time
Wash the sins away!

Approaching the barriers of time
Keeping the hollow down inside
Away from the troubles that I've known
Waiting for the truth to finally show

See the desperate hearts taking every turn
All that's come and gone
They borrowed and they burned
It's so hard to return

It surrounds you
Releasing all the pain
All the troubled times
Carrying that dead weight

I'm crushing the barriers of time
Keeping the hollow down inside
Away from the troubles that I've known
Waiting for the truth to finally show
Approaching the barriers of time
Keeping the hollow down inside
Away from the troubles that I've known
Waiting for the truth to finally show
7. Psycho Motor (5:15)
I want to know why you make the silence
Create the violence reflecting in my head
I'm on the run just a soul deceiver
A true believer lifted from the dead
This time I want to roll the tide
I'm gonna touch the sky
Don't believe a word they said
Then I'll wait for the perfect hour
To feed the psycho motor in my head

I finally see what the ending will bring
Ther's a truth in the words and the things never heard
When they try as they must to save the nation
Contemplate your own salavtion

I'm burning, still running, I'm gone to stay
You want - Times caught - Why run? - Times done

I want to fly like there's no tomorrow
No broken sorrows, no cry for quick solutions
Must be nice sitting way up there
In your private lair blending into this confustion
I'm not one to take it for the cause
All the things I've lost I never really wanted to own
Remember time never fails to pass
So don't you ask for the things I've never shown

Shifting and searching your way through the maze
Like a shock to the brain that'll drive you insane
Just a thought from the time that you had half a life
But you left it behind now you're walking that line

I'm burning, still running, I'm on my way
You want - Times caught - Why run? - Times done

I want to search for a serious life
Searching inside pleading for all the answers
And every course that I chose to take
Never going to make the same mistaken turns
Taking every chance while the circumstances
Arise so there might be a chance to start
Want to put all these things behind us
That grip and grind us and rip them all apart

Overcome by the sight of the screams in your eyes
There's no way to get hold cause your spirit's been sold
And sometimes faith don't control this game
And losing your mind ain't as bad as they say

I'm burning, still running, I'm on my way
Time's failing, life's calling, so far away
You want - Times caught - Why run? - Times done
8. Faces In The Dark (5:33)
Why can't you see?
You should've left me here
Far away from you
A long time ago
You brought me along
On this harrowing ride

I guess my fortune left
I rushed right into this dark descent
I couldn't hide placed on trial again
I dare not tell where I've been

Dark's descending, no use in pretending
That you know what's going on

The outlook is scary
Your face you bury in your hands
Seems you're not so strong after all

Faces in the dark, revealing what's inside

I'll always be a restless spirit
On an endless ride to eternity
Mortified to hear the truth you say to me

Dark's descending, no use in pretending
That you know what's going on

The outlook is scary ...

Faces in the dark, revealing what's inside

Do you ever sleep?
You know you're testing the waters
Of mortality
Always drifting at sea
Feel the pressure start
And it tears you all apart

Dark's descending, no use in pretending
That you know what's going on

The outlook is scary ...

Faces in the dark, revealing what's inside
Faces in the dark, playing with your mind
Faces in the dark, revealing what's inside
Faces in the dark
9. The Middle Of Nowhere (5:35)
I used to think that life's a game
Meant to play then fade away
And take the journey slow
To the twilight of my days
Now my thoughts are so alive
I'll die trying to turn back the hands of time

I'm not sure what I found
Broken free from the
Self-created problems inside
I never had a reason to want to carry on

Watch the night begin to fly
You see a strange light from within
Don't try to fight it when you're feeling lost
And drained completely
Because of where you've been
In the middle of nowhere

You sat and watched from underneath
All the weight of broken years
Then along the way the nights
Left you shaking ever near
To the end that you desired
When you lost the fire the line was very clear

And all the things that I've found
Melting away like the rain that never
Seems to stop I never had a reason to doubt
You would carry on

Watch the night begin to fly ...

Never look back, understand
Don't fade away and let is slip from your hands

I don't know how to feel
I know don't know how to deal
Bound and stripped of all I really know

Pieces of the afterthoughts
When you saw that all was lost
There's nowhere to go this time
Now you finally know the cost
I can't save you from your thoughts

In the middle of nowhere
10. Lost (5:05)
You followed me through changes
Thinking things could work out fine
I was in need of rescue
On that cold forsaken night
I was the only one in the way
Sinking into a deep divide
Seeing through to the outside
Was always so far out of sight

Time goes by
Wasted on the words
And although we tried
So much is still unheard
Am I lost inside?

You were the only one
Who could help me see beyond this haze
You made the weight of the world I carried
Somehow lift away
I threw away what I held sacred
All the things I orchestrated
Pieces of me fell all around
And some just won't be found

Time goes by ...

Totally lost in the world
I've been reeling in pain
From the loss of my soul
I've been dealing
All that's here and gone
And it won't be long

Speak to me now
I don't know if I'm fading
A ghost in the light's
Laughing while I'm degrading
All that's here and gone
You know it won't be long

'Til there's no more sound
I'll drown it out I won't feel a thing

Time goes by ...

Totally lost in a world I create in the dark
Totally lost in a world I create
