Principles of Pain Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Under my skin (4:35)
Where shall I begin
It's hard to explain, what makes a person anxious
Eyes, all under my skin
A**lyse before their Diagnosis

Take a seat tell us when it started
Clear your thoughts
Time for mind, probing

Suddenly first the rush
Pressure in my brain
Molecules explode, like drops of rain
Blinded I can't see, their reality
Trapped in my hell, will I ever break this spell

My blood, boils under my skin
Nervously, scratching the first reaction
How, how shall it end
It's driving me, totally 'round the bend

Mystified by their own conclusions
Given time they'll start, mind probing

They keep probing your mind
2. The inner room (3:58)
The inner room
Was where the game was played
At first I never saw her
The light was shining, in my eyes

Like a goddess she walked towards me
My heart's beating fast
I fell for her in a single moment
Who cares, what she's done

Deep inside the inner room
Their your fantasies are made
A pharaoh's tomb, full of beautiful slaves

The inner room, a dangerous place to play
Where false illusions linger
You can look, but you can't have your way

Words of caution I've heard so many's
But my heart was in flames
She's not worth all the endless sorrow
I've got to have her, come what may

She is the one for me
No matter what they all say
Now it doesn't matter
She is the woman for me

I've got to have her, she is the one and only
3. No code no honour (4:38)
This cruel game, my whole life you have played
Still tears you shed
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me
All these years, our friendship you faked
Freely this way
Now there's no absolution

This pleasure you've freely taken
Unashamedly all forsaken, lies

No code no honour
A deadly disguise full of false intentions
No code no honour
Surrounded by lies see that look in your eyes

For too many years, secrets undisclosed
Sharing with others than me
Was it all for nothing
You're engaged, in a world of intrigue
I sense apprehension
With no real solution

A mystery tour of pleasure
The ending unknown if ever, why!

No code no honour
A deadly disguise full of false intentions
No code no honour
Surrounded by lies see that look in your eyes

No code no honour
Secrecy wrapped in a strange dimension
No code no honour
A bond without trust, is living a lie

An alliance we made, our friendship was real
Commitments to last forever
4. Walking nightmare (5:27)
A promise spoken, spoken never kept
Love's not important, to you
How I foolishly believed

At first, you seemed so genuine
That's how it started
'til she strips you, emotionally within

She's just your walking nightmare
Those empty promises she tells
Think hard, before you trust her
An 'break your spirit, mind and soul
Then leave you all alone

Your vision blurred it's hard to see
The anguish she's caused you
Love, that's her game essentially
Seduction is the obstacle she'll place
Laid out before you
Defenceless, she'll have you on your knees

She's just your walking nightmare
Those empty promises she tells
Think hard, before you trust her
An 'break your spirit, mind and soul
Then leave you all alone

All alone, she's leave you all alone

She's just your walking nightmare
Those empty promises she tells
Think hard, before you trust her
An 'break your spirit, mind and soul

She's just your walking nightmare
Those empty promises she tells
Think hard, before you trust her
An 'break your spirit, mind and soul
Then leave you all alone

A promise spoken, spoken never kept
5. Pilgrims parade (4:14)
Your quest has begun, to find the answers
A modern day tale
A search for peace, friendship and laughter
Everlasting dreams

Will you walk beside us
If we stretch out our hands
We can solve the mysteries
In the land of the brave

Walk...
Walk in the pilgrims parade
The challenge of life you can face
Walk in the pilgrims parade
Here in the land of the brave

Year after year, endless searching
An 'still you don't know
How to solve, all your anguish
Discover your dreams

...Pilgrims parade
6. Primciples of pain (5:16)
What it really, no-one really knows
They poke inside your head
An 'still they cannot diagnose
Simple memories, can change the way we feel
Without us knowing from, one minute to the next

I feel naked when they probe inside my brain
If a had a choice I'd put, a moratorium on pain
Unpredictable what kind of mood I'm in
I thought I made it clear, from the start
So don't begin

Through this emptiness
There hides the sorrow and blame
Lies are dangerous
Finish what you've started

Where do we go from here
If we bury the past soon the pain will show
Tortured mind, body and soul
These are the principles of pain
We all fear!

With tragedy comes pain, we cannot cheat the truth
Nor come to terms with it
Staring back at you
Darkest secrets all, hidden behind the fear
Time to face the music now
Don't be scared
7. Creatures of habit (4:36)
An' just like she said you would
Suddenly there you stand
Knocking on hell's own door
Innocently, your eyes open wide

Unlike creatures of habit
We can act very strange
While dealing with emotions
And matters close to the heart

To be so arrogant, yet na?ve
Expecting to be welcomed back
Gone are those happy days
A distant past, out of love came deceit

Close to the heart...
Matters close to the heart
Close to the heart...
8. Silence in the wind (4:56)
I lie awake in bed
Wondering why, I can't hear a thing
The world outside, seems unusually quiet
I listen, but I can't hear I noise

Oh, it's not possible
A world full of people all content
No rich or poor, just a fairytale
Try to imagine
How wonderful, life could feel

I sense a presence in the air
I can feel it all around
A kind of silence in the wind
A peaceful energy to share
I can almost touch it seems so real
The sound of silence in the wind

I'm not too old, just an ordinary chap
Who wants to make a wish
A special dream come true
Call me na?ve, call it innocence
But I bet that's just the way you're feeling to

The sound of silence in the...
The sound of silence in the wind
9. Hypothesis (5:00)
Theories are made
There's a reason they should be
Hidden far away, until someone can see
Many teachers said
There's a world inside your head
So step outside yourself, look an' see

Slipping away
Opportunities, connections never made
God given chances, can all disappear

Make it happen
Work it out
Hypothetic alone, won't make it work
Get it right
So make it happen
Make it count
Actions speak bigger that a million words

Ignoring the signs
Is your life filled with empty spaces
Theoretically, assumptions can be made
Don't wait around to see, if only now

No more words anymore
No more words, no more words make it work
No more words

Theoretically, assumptions can be made
But they don't work, anymore!
10. Missing persons (3:44)
There's a sleepy hollow tale
'bout the two who perished, gone forever

Their house was a blaze
A crime was committed a fire did rage
Jealousy played it's part
Suspicious lies, pointing fingers

Missing persons
Disappeared together
Missing persons
Are they gone forever

Tales of two young newly weds
Happily they built their house together

Little did they know
A plot was conceived
To get rid of them both
A friend with a jealous heart
The perfect crime, they'd all believe

Missing persons
Disappeared together
Missing persons
Are they gone forever
Missing persons
Not a trace left to be found
Missing persons
Will the guilty ones be exposed
Nobody knows

No... one... knows...no-one knows
No... one... nobody knows
11. A child´s breath (6:33)
To look upon one's self I see
How into this life I came
Knowing nothing so afraid
A child's breath my first I'd take
Oh what a lovely baby
The lord has given you a boy

So into the world I came
A child's step my first I'd take

Go into the world, be anyone you please
Try and find your strength, inside yourself
Can you see the things you see
Can you feel the things you feel
Don't throw away this chance
As short as life to all may seem

Looking down I see myself
Growing older, children, wealth
Generations pass on by
Waiting for my life to die
...like generations all before

Go into the world, be anyone you please
Try and find your strength, inside yourself
Can you see the things you see
Can you feel the things you feel
Don't throw it all away
Have pride in yourself
We came into this world, we all to succeed
Search inside your soul
Feel the air you breathe
Step outside yourself
Beyond what you believe
Try and make some sense
As short as life to all may seem

You gotta believe, it doesn't take much at all
Yes you've gotta believe
It doesn't take much at all
12. Silence in the wind (acoustic version) (4:56)
I lie awake in bed
Wondering why, I can't hear a thing
The world outside, seems unusually quiet
I listen, but I can't hear I noise

Oh, it's not possible
A world full of people all content
No rich or poor, just a fairytale
Try to imagine
How wonderful, life could feel

I sense a presence in the air
I can feel it all around
A kind of silence in the wind
A peaceful energy to share
I can almost touch it seems so real
The sound of silence in the wind

I'm not too old, just an ordinary chap
Who wants to make a wish
A special dream come true
Call me naïve, call it innocence
But I bet that's just the way you're feeling to

The sound of silence in the...
The sound of silence in the wind
