Illumine Lyrics

Submitted by level ToLiveIstoDie
1. Drawn (5:28)
Within these walls their lies abide
Dreams are denied
Our will remains unheard
We are all meant to be the same
Imitators of the archetype
Unaware of better life

Blackened is the way out
Blackened is the way out

Drawn into endless night
Drawn into the open pyre of light
Into the open sea
Drawn unwillingly

A broken line of notion
Overshadowing the days
A one-way avail
In the emptiness of sense
we are drawn into the fraud
Within the power grids

We are all meant to be
Imitators of the archetype
Imitating time and again
Within these walls their lies abide
Dreams are denied

Blackened is the way out
Blackened is the way out
Blackened is the way
2. The Pyre (6:21)
Smoldering grass
Noxious fumes
Smoke smothers the city

Trying to hold my breath
The vapor hurts in the lungs
Exhaling causes vertigo

At the scenery of the end of days
I stare at the haunt of oblivion
Vacant spheres filled with smoke
Buildings burn as far I can see

I run forth behind thought

Rush and run
The city is burning down
and absolutely nothing is left
I watch this play of agony
Incapable to play my role

The echoing walls inhale
The smoke-stained stench of our grave
Within the pyre we become undone

"The towers ablaze
As the circle completes
The days had a limit
Ignite the barren souls
Before they comprehend
The pyre burns tonight

A force overwhelming
Crushes the cattle
There was no warning
As the drug deafens
Before it fades
The plot comes to its end"

The daze lapsed in my head
A withering while
Realization of concealing

At the scenery of the end of days
I stared at the haunt of oblivion
Now I am awake watching outside
It is grey
As grey as it used to be

In the dream my city was burning down
and absolutely nothing was left
I watched this play of agony
In the dream
3. Urban Reverie (3:43)
What is in the air?
Is it our submission?
Visualize the world
By all the things you've heard

Let us go
Let us go to another day
Let the sun
Let the sun light our day
Continuous run

Let me go
Let me go
Another day
Let the moon
Let the moon guide my way

It began to feel like this city is just a bunch of lies
And these people are not what I want
Over the hills
To the landscape of my soul

Let me go
Let me go today
Let this dream
Let this dream be my guide
I've visualized
4. Crushed (5:25)
Rusty and grey, lights decay
Derelict houses are rampant
Smog covers the air as a pall
Stagnation in front of us all

Atmosphere of fear
Visibly subordinate mass
No resistance at all
Just people obeying their call

Notably vague vision
In the eyes of the folk
Was I the same before
the realization

Praise reign
Woe as our mandatory load
Leads into alienation
The barren souls are crushed into the ground
Their dreams were never true

Atmosphere of fear
Visibly subordinate mass
Constantly observed area
I must flee from here

Rusty and grey is the new day
In the eyes of the folk
Was I the same before
A travesty of man

Our dreams were never true
They were never true
5. 3:30 AM (1:51)
6. Into the Red Sun (7:22)
I made my choice
I could not stay
At the red sun's dawn
I'm on my way
Creeping the silent streets
Watching out not to tread
In the revealing red

Through the morning haze
Searching my way out of this maze
The shimmer is not so gray
Behind this alleyway
I am out

The day I thought I'd never see
My veins are filled with liberty
I pierce the system of greed
Redeem my pain with this deed
Sensations arising from novelty

The steel transforming into lea
The menacing shadow throbs internally
Away from oppression
Leap into the wild

Cut loose
Off benighted sleep

Cut loose
Off living benighted

Mountains loom
Spreading across my eyes
I can see the red sun rise
7. Unlearn (5:04)
No restrictions
Unmade roads leading nowhere
That's what I want
To break the shackles and forget them
No one around to tell me where I belong
This independence is making me stronger

A sea of trees
Surrounds me

Gone for good
Building up my sanity
By unlearning
Renewed for good
Learning to live
By unlearning

Resurrected from absence
Reborn on the run
Arisen from the mist
Cherished by the sun
How can a single thought of bliss
Redeem my time in the abyss

Resurrected from absence
Reborn on the run
Arisen from the mist of fear-saturated sun
How can a single deed
Give me all I need

Unlearning to give my life away
8. A Storm at the River (3:55)
A storm
There's a storm at the river
I gaze at it from afar
Its rumble awakened me

A shadow in my mind
was something I left behind
The misty miles of mine
I roamed

I took a step in the dark
Beside your ghost
Into the night
Watching the storm
Thundering over the land
Feel my insignificance
Just a grain of sand
9. Rainfall (8:29)
As I faced the opening grove anew
I decided to halt for the time was due
Dusk soon covered the darkening world
Replacing the light with the colours of the night

Reality descends as the skies rain on me
I'm drenched by the heavens' pouring black sea
Trying to snuggle within the warmth inside
But the coldness of the world devours me
Into its custody

Forlorn are the lights on the way...
The deep blue shades of rain
In the lonely hours' domain
Colour the scenery
With paints of darkening tone
I tried to mute the noise of the world
As I felt it was too loud for a captive of the crowd
But even here I can't help but feel the weakness of my state
A lonely path to tread with no destination ahead

Time is just a notion hiding its worth
I'm counting the hours by the hum of the earth
Few are the thoughts without any pain
Drowning to sleep to the deep shades of rain
Into its custody

Forlorn are the lights on the way...
Forlorn lights slumber

The shades of the rain dye the view in blue
The shades of the rain drown the lights to sleep
10. The Newfound Horizon (10:30)
Foaming Ocean
Endless Horizon
Astir in the light of the dawn

I woke up lost
On a shimmering shoreline
Not where I'd laid my head at night
At the end of the road
Never lies another day to be astray

How did I end up in here out of nowhere?
No sign of the dark, no recall
A distinct feel of being home
Arose with the morning sun
Why wouldn't I stay if I feel I belong?

On a journey worth a lifetime abroad

By the wavy sea
Misty roads are behind me
A sublime privilege to be
On these shores of liberty

But one more time I turned to see
The world I have left behind me
Without words staring aghast
The smoke rising behind the vast
