Bitterness Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Life Shatters (5:24)
Dying days of despair
Are the mirrors of pain
The glass in which I stare
Are slowly building a palace in my mind
Where the memories breeds my fear
With halls of mourning and with walls of bitter loss

The world around me dies
As the seasons change
The water turns to ice
And another year will push the past
Further back into forgetfulness
Among the moments never to return again

Lives are spread by the wind
Growing further apart
Can't return what has been
I will never again touch those winters
Or the shadows of the fall
Never the innocence, the light of each day

Tell me now, where's the end to our strive
Shattered life, the point where freedom dies
Behold my eyes, can't you see I'm terrified
Desperate holding on to a distant time

Life Shatters

Lives are spread by the wind
Growing further apart
Can't return what has been
I will never again touch those winters
Or the shadows of the fall
Never the innocence, the light of each day

So paint the edge with tears
Of a perished emotion
A wound so severe
And much too deep to be erased
By the healing hands of time
That life has withered, and is gone forevermore
2. Left Behind (3:11)
Dead light is shining through
Spreading the years of grey
Leaving our past behind
Faces are turned away
I watch you spread your wings
With eyes of apathy
You're carried by the winds
Unchained and living free

Castle of dying life
Home of security
Within the heart of silence
I'm living in a dream
Inside my world of envy
Days filled with emptiness
Trembling in fear of facing
My growing loneliness

Lies now comes alive
Dead dreams flows away
Just fear for me to find
Pain lives, I'm left behind

The shades upon my face
Can't keep the pain inside
Hear cries beneath my laughter
See tears in every smile
I've always felt so clear
It had to end one day
But dreams could never tell
That it would hurt this way
3. A Closing Eye (5:28)
Fumbling in frustration, inside soul torn apart
Feel the loss of paradise, leave an empty heart
Closing eyes will shut out, the warm light of a life
Grip is fading slowly, for each day passing by

The soul is bleeding from thorns inside
Red blood is flowing in waves of tide

Shades of lies are playing, on pale and stone cold face
Eyes reflects compassion, take the empty space
Down on knees I'm weak, don't turn your back on me
Lips are full of lines, which only I can see

It hurts so bad, I cannot breathe
So lonely so lost, in misery

Breathing a lie, I am denied

Blindfold my eyes, I am to die

Push away in anger, a disappointed mind
The streak of truth I seek, It touch so deep inside
Illusions has been washed, away like grains of sand
In endless waves of sea, the shore of unknown land
4. Taste Of Tragedy (3:53)
Into the void of
Accusation
Into the point of
No return

Give me a shelter
From your rain
The fall of anger
Storm of pain
Our surface breaks in
Agony
Your bitter voice tastes
Tragedy

So here's the frozen silence
The shadow of our lives
The space between two spirits
A child of our lies

Turn away
Two shattered eyes in pain
Life betrays
Frustration of a dying flame
Mind decays
Words swallowed by the blame
Fall astray
Our feelings slowly fades

The taste of tragedy engulf
The feelings that no longer lives

The thorn of disbelief
Raping souls
Our web of trust now
Filled with holes
Cold chains of everyday
Bleeding scars
Different living minds
Drifting apart

So here's the frozen silence
The shadow of our lives
The space between two spirits
A child of our lies
5. Bleeding (4:28)
Stare into the unknown
See the truth reveal
Turn away in helplessness

Gaze upon the future
Gaze into the black
My bitter eyes reflects the pain

Tear down the images
Of what lies ahead
When sadness rules my every move
Tear down your hopeful thoughts
Try to realize
That no one ever guides your way

And I bleed
Bleeding
Blood from my soul
It drains away
And I bleed
I bleed for you
And I bleed for me

Just give me a reason not
To paint the future black
When all my hope just fades away, just fades away

I can see no future
Here in front of me
What's the point of living
When I could be free

Bleeding
Blood from my soul
It drains away
And I bleed
I bleed for you
And I bleed for me
6. Among Mortals (3:56)
I rise again, I am immortal
I race through time, I live and breathe only fear

My time is here, Mortals suffer for me
I rule your fate, I decide what will be

I'll devour you all
You're mortal and weak
I'll take your soul
Domination I seek

Follow me now, Follow me human fool
I stand above, Among mortals I rule

I stand above you
I seal your fate
With rage and anger
I rise in hate

Release the fury
Upon you all
My words are eternal
I rise, You fall

I'll devour you all
You're mortal and weak
7. Enslaved (4:43)
Marching through reality
With a lie before your eyes
Adapt and die
In the endless maze of life

Embedded in apathy
See the future in the past
Too weak to try
To break the chain at last

I stare into your eyes
And I watch something die
I turn away and run
Into oblivion

Softly I buried now
Buried into the grey
Be silent, be dead
Just do what others say

I look at you
You strive to find the way
You're silent, you're dead
You do what others say

I can see right through you
You're not in harmony
Not in harmony with life
Just like me

Alive but dead
Alive but dead

Search for nothing
In this life that I abuse
A race against time
That I'm about to lose

I can read your mind
You think we've just begun
My friend you're lost
Towards the end we run
8. Winter (3:58)
The cold cleanses my soul
And reveal to me
The harmony that long was lost
It sets my spirits free
At last I feel, I feel at ease
The winter cold just grants me peace

The bitter cold is here
Light dies, I hear you cry
A dismal life appear
I live while others die

Softly caressed by silence
And by the darkest night
I make my way through shadows
Into the dying light
The pain inside, it withers away
The silence is here, it leads me astray

In the cold dead winter
My mind is free
In the grip of silence
Life is burning in me

At last I feel, I feel at ease
The winter cold just grants me peace

The bitter cold is here
Light dies, I hear you cry
A dismal life appear
I live while others die
I live while others die
9. Cold Bitterness (3:47)
Dead lines my view
A hollow gaze in black
Reflecting bitterness
In sadness life is wrapped

Eye's veil conceal
Our pain that roam inside
Days gone forever
The years has drowned in time

Life flows away before my eyes
Waiting for light, another day dies

Searching a time
Beneath the nameless days
Echoes of weeks
The void that builds our way

Open your mind, and see things through my eyes
Their dead, lost eyes, and all the bitter lives

Cold reality
Is the bitter veil
Which divides our lives
From our dying dreams

Moments in flight
Light as the winds caress
Memories, whiter
Into forgetfulness

Life flows away before my eyes
Waiting for light, another day dies
