Headquake Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Ghoulish Gift (6:52)
Lost moons of regrets
The latest full of secrets
Air scents of love
Peace faith and warmth
A wax temple priestess
Tempting sweet kisses...
When someone calls
Behind a ghostly postless door

Shocking hurtful sight
Wide open bleeding eyes
Snakes creep inside
Wrapping my mind

Quiet down! The heart sound
Shake down! Hellbound

Sad timeless trip
Dark wavering poetry
Bring me back again
Those ghouls from the past
Soundless screams and shouts
Someone get them out!
No way to me myself
I'm chained to an endless past

Shocking hurtful sight
Wide open bleeding eyes
Snakes creep inside
Wrapping my mind

Quiet down! The heart sound
Shake down! Hellbound
2. The Last Embrace (6:42)
Deadly hatred deceitful lies
This plague is carved in my brain
Burn low! Burn alive!
Thoughts corroding my bones
Nailed on a cross, paralyzed
I see my faith collapse,
Paint my eyes, draw my mouth
On a mirror that hides my mask

I lied in silence
Stemmed my passions
Whatever happens, will you
Embrace me again?
Lying in silence
Waiting breathless
All of a sudden it may even be the last

Some black shades obscure the sunrise
Clouds... rain... a foreboding!
He used to spy on me behind a claw wall
When I slept in a bed of thorns

I lied in silence
Stemmed my passions

Whatever happens, will you
Embrace me again?
Lying in silence
Waiting breathless
All of a sudden it may even be the last
I face myself
One day will you embrace me again?
Tonight I'll cry
Next time over the clouds of the world
I will smile
3. Lord Of An Empty Place (5:28)
I'm here in
I'm living
I'm dreaming
But you can't see me at all
I'm walking close to the wall
I'm here in
My breathing is my screaming
A half concealed look's my boldest
Approach to you

I talk barely
I wake up early
8 hours fairly
with spiders of silent pain
weaving cold webs in my brain
I hold on still I long
For the dusk to come
Like after the longest war
A knight on this way home

Lord of an empty place
Reign of one alone
Sham is the only home
I'm feeling friendly
I'm feeling my own
Lord of an empty place
Reign of chill and ghosts
Stage with the curtain down
Where I play the main role
But no one's there to applaud

I've grown old
Thought my world's so cold
Since i fold myself round na icy core
I don't know what I'm living for
If only I'd showed you
How much I loved you
I'd be lord in real world too
A king for the time with you

Lord of an empty place
Reign of one alone
Sham is the only home
I'm feeling friendly
I'm feeling my own

Lord of an empty place
Reign of chill and ghosts
Stage with the curtain down
Where I play the main role
But no one's there to applaud

Take a bow, a roaring crowd
Walls come crashing down
Raise your eyes
And find you're just all alone

Lord of an empty place
Reign of one alone
Open or closed it be
No one at the window
No one knocking at the door
Lord of an empty place
Reign of chill and ghosts
Stage with the curtain down
Where I play the main role
But no one's there to applaud
4. Sometimes In Winter (6:18)
Now my eyes start to smile again
You can't try, can't understand
Leve me in my world
I know my god is cold
Can't stand the heat, never had much fun

Here it comes my winter sun
You can't see it bright
In my own feelings he rises

My only winter, you keep my
Desires alive
My endless winter, confine me
Inside your light
In this garden of Eden I live again
Reassured by hope from my fallings born
Walking on my illusions I breathe the end
How many flowers will die

Got a soul forever doomed to escape
Wandering through a landless path
Rain on my better self
A rose will bloom from my ashes

My only winter, you keep my
Desires alive
My endless winter, confine me
Inside your light

My only winter, you keep my
Desires alive
My endless winter, confine me
Inside your light
In this river my nightmares scatter and drown
I fell free in this higher ground
Swimming in my ilusions, lost in the dark
Where the sky shines black for my eyes
5. At The Restless Sea (7:02)
Here comes the rain
On fenced courtyards
Here comes the shade
On dead-end ways
Here comes the grey
To dim the colors
Here comes the cold
To wake the pain

It's hard to live in silent corners
Weary leaves
And crooked stalks
Flowers bow
Towards the light
So I do
Out of shape, out of sight

Calm! It's alright they say
Calm! you're straight on your way out
Calm's the last things I fel
'cause what is too calm seems to be unreal

Yet down inside
Seas are raging
One tear and hell shall burst
Cold tearing and grey as lead
I push it back as I bend my head
And keep on standing
If I'm here tomorrow, God, don't let it be raining

An abandoned bone
Lone, dead, shabby
One doomed man
Who can't give up
One croked flower
That still wants to live
I clutch at my last hour
At the restless sea

Calm! It's alright they say
Calm! you're straight on your way out
Calm's the last things I feel
'cause what is too calm seems to be unreal

Yet down inside
Seas are raging
One tear and hell shall burst

Cold tearing and grey as lead
I push it back as I bend my head
And keep on standing
If I'm here tomorrow, God, don't let it be raining

Calm! It's alright they say
Calm! you're straight on your way out
Calm's the last things I feel
'cause what is too calm seems to be unreal

Yet down inside
Seas are raging
One tear and hell shall burst
Cold tearing and grey as lead
I push it back as I bend my head
And keep on standing
Though I know well there's no way back in
And the world out here keeps on turning
Am I too far behind
I raise my hand but can't say farewell
Just as long as tides keep on turning
Until tomorrow if there's tomorrow for me... to live
6. Salome's Dance (5:27)
Sway and dance girl, spread your glamour
I'll draw the curtains, I just can't see
Make a move, the wax will melt
Speak one worl to cast a spell
Queen of sin pull your veils off
Sway and strip and I'll obey
A demonstration of veneration on the silver tray, yeah!

All you wish is what I whould die hard for
I'd self my life to win the sweetest battle

Praying mantis kills after loving
I see you as the princess of beauty and lust
Play the nun with red painted nails
Changing into a tart veil after veil
A demonstration of my devotion on the
Silver tray yeah!

All you wish is what i would die hard for
I'd disobey and pick the sweetest apple
All you ask is what will get hold of
I would deny a friend for every veil you slide down

Beads of sweat on your body I'll drown in
The river I'll be baptised in
,,...into templation, but deliver us from evil
...Amen"

Sway and strip and I'll obey
A demonstration of veneration on the silver tray, yeah!

All you wish is what I would die hard for
You can dance on the hair of men
Whose heads I've struck off
All you ask is what you get hold of
I can behead a friend for every veil you
Slide down
All you wish... all die for.. all for you ask... for
Every veil you slide down
Until tomorrow if there's tomorrow for me... to live
7. Erase (6:08)
Night by night I hear a rending cry
Always restrained by the black
Day by day the rosy-fingered light
Wakes me and opens craked paths

Just keep away! Cracks will open wide!

Nine o'clock the sky is turning red
Look above to see hell
God extract my heart from the flames
This is your son, let it beat again

Behind the belfry prayers around a cradle
Over the empty eyes

Erase!!

Oldest hope rended by a cancer
Pieces beg for your mercy
Frosty drop of a bloody rain
Pushes deeply in my deadly flesh

Behind the belfry prayers around a cradle
Over the empty eyes

Erase! A hopeless life
Erase! The time to come
Deny! My dawn gone by
The door is approaching, the voices are calling
Fixing the cross on your breast I realize

Behind the belfry prayers around a cradle
Over the empty eyes

Erase! a hopeless life
Erase! The time to come
Deny! My dawn gone by
The door is approaching, the voices are calling
Fixing the cross on your breast I realize
8. The Quest(ion) (5:28)
As twilight died
Blazing throught a mountain wood
I ran away by faith in a burning flame in vain!
When you think you know the way
To reach the place without a name
You just can't wait

Scared, in despair
A girl appeared in white clothes
And lighting up a trail up the slope (said:)
,,Try and fly to the sky"
a house stood high
Ten floors to climb
I think I saw a million traces there
And I went up the stairs
No one anywhere
Only empty chairs...

But a lady in bed
Once she said
,, If when I'm dead I stay alive
I'll kiss your ahnd like a butterfly"
I saw her lying in bed
As pale as death
To an end had come her life
I felt her soul was still inside

Scared, in despair
A girl appeared in white clothes
And lighting up a trail up the slope (said:)
,,Try and fly to the sky"
a house stood high
Ten floors to climb
I think I saw a million traces there
And I went up the stairs
No one anywhere
Only empty chairs...

But a lady in bed
Once she said
,, If when I'm dead I stay alive
I'll kiss your ahnd like a butterfly"
I saw her lying in bed
As pale as death
To an end had come her life
I felt her soul was still inside
I saw a lady in bed
Once she said
,, If when I'm dead I stay alive
I'll kiss your ahnd like a butterfly"

I found her lying in bed
As pale as death
To an end had come her life
I felt she kept her soul inside
9. Clockwork Bed (5:29)
I laid bare all my charming lies
We played there, tie to another time
We were always ready for the next dive
But this game is straight on a dead end climb

Imagination projecting pictures of the past
My consolation in a handful of seconds

Time won't sponge clean my anger
Future won't wipe my tears
Time won't send me a engel
Lonely soul devoid of love

Shine inside... inside a coated dream
Naked vice in your catching side
I fill the apple, lessem my disease
Seeds of rage will claim the right to cry

Imagination conceived in a silent boredom
From a exploisom, my surrender... your survival!

Time won't sponge clean my anger
Future won't wipe my tears
Time won't send me a engel
Lonely soul devoid of love
10. Dawn Of The Dying (6:29)
Remember the silent waters
The steam of the breathing
The wake 'round a shaded fire
The wait on a barren shore

My mother's been crying now
She'll dress in back
She kept her tears and whispers
Wishing me good luck
My father has turned his face
Turned by toil and sun
To the son who denies him
And everthing he's done

Done is the night
As I'm leaving
While my sad flight begins
Sun of my land
Rise up bening to light the way
I'll bless the new day

The land of my father dies
With our creed
My home land is barren
We couldn't make it breed
My wasteland
I turn my eyes towards the sky
Can't watch you as I kiss you
I kiss my land goodbye

Done is the night
As I'm leaving
While my sad flight begins
Sun of my land
Rise up bening to light the way
I'll bless the new day
