Astronomy Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Supernova (5:09)
[Music: Holmlid, Mörck Lyrics: Mörck]

Do you believe in powers extreme?
Bewildering majesty
Can you perceive a vision supreme?
Eruption serene

Grim destiny
Infinity
Radiant intensity
Ethereal sphere
Future severe
Benevolent fear

Into its fortune bestowed
Marvel and let it explode!
To the inferno we go

[Chorus:]
Detonate the sun
And soar into the supernova
Now it has begun
A solar mass undone

Say, can you feel
Destruction surreal
Deadly calamity
A final demise
In godly disguise
Now will arise

Head to the wisdom of old
Unleash a glory untold
To the inferno we go

[Chorus]

[Solo: Mörck]
[Solo: Holmlid]
[Solo: Magnusson]

Head to its fortune bestowed
Marvel and let it explode
To the inferno we go

[Chorus]
2. Cassiopeia (4:06)
Beautiful queen of the waters
Borne by celestial mother
Sublime astrological divinity

Punished for vain intervention
She sacrificed god-like ascension
Stripped of olympian serenity

Solar rays will carry me far away from here
Take... me... to my journey's end

[Chorus:]
Hear a goddess cry
A silent hopeless sight
From a sanctum divine!

(from the stars she still whispers
Envied among all her sisters
Entwined in a kingdom of infinity)

The tears of an astral descension
Derived from her moonlit dimension
A star that is fading to obscurity

So my wings will carry me far away from home
Bring... me... to my final rest

[Chorus]

Hear a goddess cry
When astral angels die
In a sanctum divine

[Chorus]

Hear a goddess cry
When astral angels die
In a sanctum divine
3. Contact (4:25)
[Holmlid, Mörck]

A cryptic equation
of a pulsating light
An unearthly riddle
from beyond the starlit sky

Message of unknown design
Heavenly but non - divine
Sent by intelligent minds
An echo through space and time

Fractal figures, deciphered lines
Stellar visit is nigh

[Chorus:]
See the fire in the cloudless night
Bright reflection of lights in my eyes
Now we will see
will our contact be
salvation from afar
a guiding star

[Solo: Holmlid]

A cold observation
of systematical eyes
Our demeanor transfigured
A calculated demise

Contact with alien life
Heavenly but with non - divine
Communication with cosmic minds
that navelled through space and time

[Chorus]

[Solo: Mörck, Holmlid, Magnusson,Mörck]

Complete fulfilment of ancient signs
A swift destruction by higher minds

See the fire in the cloudless night
Bright reflection of lights in my eyes
Now we will see
that our contact will be
destruction from afar
one final war
4. Astronomy (3:20)
[music: Mörck, Holmlid, Lyrics: Mörck, Jake E (Dream land vocal)]

I'm getting closer
In a higher ground
My destination
Lies beyond the sun

Not afraid of failure
to crash and burn
If you're not living
you will never learn

constellations far
revealing my destiny
Astronomy
there among the star

Like a higher conscience
living in my mind
You're always with me
'til the end of time

It is there before me
Undisguised
No hesitation
I'm on the rise

Constellations far
Revealing my agony
Astronomy
There among the star

"A life without strife is a moonless night"
Astronomy
"Ascend to sky of endless light"
Astronomy

[Solo: Mörck, Holmlid]

Constellations far
Revealing my destiny
Astronomy
There among the star

"A life without strife is a moonless night"
Astronomy
"Ascend to sky of endless light"
Astronomy
"Ascend to sky of endless light"
Astronomy
5. Antimatter (3:00)
Radioactive decay
A separation of fragile cycles
Decelerating our age
Nothing stands in my way and the universe

Before the stars were born
From matter it was told

Reach out you will see
What science won't believe
A mirror for this world
Through gateways you will pass
Inverted human mass

There will be no return
And soon you will learn
Now follow me

Before the stars were born
From matter it was told

Reach out you will see
What science won't believe
A mirror for this world
Through gateways you will pass
Inverted human mass

Leave this heart
To a blight
With shadows lost inside
A vision of empty light
Abandon your sight

Before this dream was born
My vision was forlorn

None believe but now
Behold what can't be seen
The mirror of a dream
There will be no return

So reach out, you will learn
6. The Book of Shadows part IV: The Scrolls of Geometria Divina (4:04)
[Instrumental]
7. Beethoven's Nightmare (6:11)
[Holmlid, Mörck, Beethoven]

Twilight, candlelit walls
A strong crescendo
Highlights the lonely calls
From my piano

Melody, come to me
sing your silent voice
Remedy my envy
Bring me one last choice

Why, why can't you bring me to find?
To clear your sound
no wayfarer is blind

See my hands
Conducting a nightmare
The symphony of a tragedy
So great it devours me
These notes are just fantasy

Peretual dream won't let go of me
I struggle to live
without the notion of a sound
that could open my mind

moonlight, make me conceive
a slow sonata
Midnight, the dead will grieve
to this dark cantata

The detestable dance to my score
they hear my cries
Your guidance I implore

See my hands
Constructing a nightmare
the symphony of a universe
So vast it devours me
These nights are just fantasy

Celestial beam, help me to see
I struggle to live
without the notion of a sound
That could open my mind

[Solo: Mörck, Magnunsson]

Into a unending sorrow
A festival of horror
An orchestra of the undead

So bright my destiny was
Golden future
Inside shadows amass
Nocturnal rapture

Melody, come to me
Sing your silent voice
Remedy my envy
Bring me one last choice

Why can't you bring me to find?
to hear your sound
No wayfarer is blind

See my hands
Conducting a nightmare
The beauty of a melody
Is all that inspires me
to write my last symphony

Perpetual dream
never lets go of me
I struggle to live
without the notion of a sound
That could (have) opened my mind
8. Too Late for Sorrow (3:36)
Show me, will you lead the way
To a place where I will feel this pain?
Tell me you will always be by my side
and wait for this final moment.

Close your eyes and hear my whisper
longing for the sun

'cause I live my life
I live my life
Lost all of my hope
and I'm fearing tomorrow.
where will I be trying to see?
but it's too late.
So now I know that I'm alone
and it's too late for sorrow.

Trust me, it is my advice
don't look back in time
it's hard to realise.

So hold me
And I will always be by your side
and wait for this final moment.

I close my eyes and hear your whisper
calling for a sign

I live my life
lost all of my hope
and I'm fearing tomorrow.
Where will I be trying to see?
But it's too late.
So now I know that I'm alone
and it's too late for sorrow.

I lived my life
lost all of my hope
now it's too late

I live my life
lost all of my hope
and I'm fearing tomorrow.
(For I need you, I need you)
Where will I be trying to see?
(Longing to see)
But it's too late for sorrow.
(But it's too late)
9. Direction: Perfection (4:29)
[Mörck, Holmlid]

Just one
One more and I'll give in
Say why you stalk me
Everlasting crave

Fly through the light
In nethern realms you will find
No more deception
(Exception)

Now save your pride
Walk this line
And I'll be your guide
See your final hope
Is fading with the light
That blinds your eyes

Gaze high
And see why you will know
In every vision
There's a truth that hides

Fly through the light
In nether realms you will find
Your right direction - perfection

Now save your pride
Walk this line
Towards the other side
See your final hope
Is fading with the light
That blinds your eyes

[Solo: Mörck]

Fly through the light
In never realms you will find
Your right direction - perfection
