Time Lost Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Blind Sided (6:27)
This is the ending of an age,the closing of a chapter that
Was just beginning...
Battered senseless, this is not what you deserve
Stripped and left defenseless, this is not what you deserve
Stabbed and left to die,all alone forsaken
Life palns gone awry, precious life blood taken
And your dignity is gone
You thought you had found something that was stable
Now you're finding you were wrong
And the promise made nothing but a fable
Blindsided, this is not what you deserve
Purposely misguided, this is not what you deserve
No foresight for this, words that kept you blind
Betrayed with a kiss, life plans undermined
And you'll never love again
You thought you had found something that was stable
Hearts can change just like the wind
So it's best to keep them safe beneath the table
Actions telling lies
Ring, an empty token
Formal-wear disguise
Vows recklessly broken

[Music: P.Craddick]
[Lyrics: T.Leonard]
2. New Moon (8:24)
There's a new moon out tonight
Another reason for living
This time I better get it right
I've seen life be less forgiving
Broken by life's deceptions
Mended by one who saw through
Fall to the ground before you
My judgement came too late
I don't deserve forgiveness
My sins are far too great
To the one who's lost it all
The hand can seem so deceiving
But pride comes before the fall
It's time I started believing
Betting my life on a lie
Losing my soul in a blink of an eye
Fall to the ground before you
My judgement came too late
I don't deserve forgiveness
My sins are far too great

[Music: T.Leonard,D.Ott,P.Craddick,M.Geimer]
[Lyrics: T.Leonard]
3. Under the Sun (7:33)
All I see, fruits of my own labor
All in vain, all for nothing real
All I taste, desappoints in flavor
What I know is fighting what I fell
This is no time to be distracted
Time lost can never be replaced
Don't let yourself become attracted
This need has got to be restrained
Where is the treasure? I know there is one
I think I've looked everywhere under the sun
I'll search and I'll fail and be dead when I'm done
But I think I've searched everywhere under the sun
All I've seen seems to lack in color
All I've held crumbles in my hands
Desperately needing something that will fill this hole
Seems like nothing can
It's time you find out what's important
This futile chase has got to end
Don't let your conscience lie there dormant
The truth can break but never bend
Where is the treasure? I know there is one
I think I've looked everywhere under the sun
I'll search and I'll fail and be dead when I'm done
But I think I've searched everywhere under the sun
I've spent my life searching for something to keep me
Constantly content
And now I'm left here with a longing for what I've spent

[Music: D.Ott,E.Platt]
[Lyrics: T.Leonard]
4. Foundations (6:11)
No quarter shall be called
Loud his cries echo by,like a river's endless flow
To wear away the stone and carve his life like a knife
The scars he'll never show...
Broken dreams shatter the still
I'm invincible, unbeatable
Splintered hearts lacking the will
I'm unstoppable,untouchable
The battle's just begun
He's standing ground tall and proud
Despite the wind that blows
As most his comrades fall,like toppled trees in the breeze
Where roots,none deep,had grown...
Broken dreams shatter the still
I'm invincible, unbeatable
Splintered hearts lacking the will
I'm unstoppable,untouchable
In your dance of indecision
I never realized just how frail you'd be
Cracks have shown in your foundation
Castles made of sand crumble eventually
Soon the smoke will clear
Then we'll see,you and me,just who's king of the hill
Though oceans swell with rage,the earth quakes,the bow
May break
Know I'll be standing still...
Broken dreams shatter the still
I'm invincible, unbeatable
Splintered hearts lacking the will
I'm unstoppable,untouchable

[Music and Lyrics: D.Ott]
5. Interact (10:53)
Can you look into my eyes before I look away?
Can you catch my gaze?
Can you see what's deep inside a lost and lonely man?
Can you understand that I wear a mask of fear?
I cannot be betrayed,that's why I'm so afraid
To interact with the other side
Instead I act alone, decisions are my own
Look,listen
Me,myself and I - we will be all right
Living all alone in a dark and empty home
Just a loner trying to survive
Needing companionship to keep oneself alive
My body and soul are mine alone to share
Making conversation with someone who isn't there
If I could just
Interact,minds making contact
Interact,when chemicals react
How can you reach this burning man?
You sense his pain and passion, in a silent scream he cries
His tale is told through his eyes
You cannot look to long before you hear his song
Look,listen
Me,myself and I - we are doing fine
Kid myself I must,there's no one else I trust
How can I tell my secrets, when we already know?
How can I show my fears,when I've already shone myself
To myself,for myself,all by myself
Interact,minds making contact
Interact,when chemicals react
Interact,there's no turning back
If I could just interact

[Music: D.Ott,P.Craddick,M.Geimer]
[Lyrics: D.Ott]
6. Standing Ground (5:32)
In spite of earnest dreams we're broken
In spite of arrogance we're humbled
For all these stubborn minds we compromise
Through all of the rose gardens let us walk
Without prickling thorns
Through golden lambs may burn,
Let us not be tempted more
For every cup I drink,don't let me spill one drop
In spite of tempting gold we'll never sell our souls
To fight for what we've founded,
We'll always hold our ground
To fight the stale malaise,to fight to preserve our ways
Through all of the rose gardens let us walk
Without prickling thorns
Through golden lambs may burn,
Let us not be tempted more
For every cup I drink,don't let me spill one drop
One more down,we're moving up
That much less to go
New hope lies within the pain of sweat and of blood
You can bet we'll see you there
Our shadows will fly over the mountain tops
We'll see you there

[Music: M.Geimer,T.Pamfiloff,P.Craddick]
[Lyrics: M.Geimer,B.Cline]
7. Mettle Man (8:25)
Save us from ourselves,our creations march against us,
Overwhelm us
As the men of metal lead us to our final hour

[Music: M.Geimer]
[Lyrics: D.Ott]
