Righteous Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Preserve The Emotions (3:34)
Has your heart lost all reason within
Lies upon lies until truth is outstarved
The cries within tearing my soul into silence
A lie is everything we lived for in vain

Preserve the emotion you never had
Was honesty all too much to ask

Whatever you said, your eyes always told different
I wasted a young lifetime on your game
I never got to know the person behind the lies

You couldn t have cared less
Your lack was the interest of devotion
My tears gave you the strength
All hopeful promises faded to pale

Preserve the emotion you never had
Was honesty all too much to ask

Preserve the emotion you never had
Was honesty all too much to ask
2. Into The Dreamscape (4:41)
The changing of seasons continues its strong march
Everything dies to get reborn in a repeated circle

Though in your eyes still burns the dedication
Using the shades of history in this world of ours

Touching me with wings of dreams
You caress me with the tranquil air
The bond between us stronger than life

Though in your eyes still burns the dedication

Into the dreamscape, the enigma of life
Our path has just begun to lead our fate
Into the dreamscape, the glory of realms
Into the mysteries we unite, now as one

The changing of seasons continues its strong march
Everything dies to get reborn, reborn

We roam the tides of enlightment
A longing soul together merged
We roam the tides of enlightment

Here high upon the arms of immortality, the fusion of dreams
In a life of solemn mysteries, we are welded together
In a tear endless, in a tear endless

Into the dreamscape, the enigma of life
Our path has just begun to lead our fate
Into the dreamscape, the glory of realms
Into the mysteries we unite, now as one
3. Dreams Of The Silent (5:37)
I watch the shadows emerge from life
Dark around the world rests the waiting night

Dreams of the silent, in front of your eyes decayed
Hollow as your truth, embrace the unformed end

Drowned into thoughts i listen
For the heart of life to fade, decay
I saw the truth in hatred
And gave myself to the night

Dreams of the silent, in front of your eyes decayed
Hollow as your truth, embrace the unformed end

Unjust you stood and watched me drown
Like a feather the memories
Anger claimed his rightful due
And now await for the solemn end

Unjust you stood and watched me drown
Like a feather the memories vanished in the air
Anger claimed his rightful due from my tears
And now i await for the solemn end

Now one with the night, my name in every whisper
The sleep of the righteous
Faded from my life, born within the shadows
Honor the fallen

Dreams of the silent, in front of your eyes decayed
Hollow as your truth, embrace the unformed end

Unjust you stood and watched me drown
Like a feather the memories vanished in the air
Anger claimed his rightful due from my tears
And now i await for the solemn end

I await...
4. Righteous (5:10)
This wicked dream shaped and formed to life
Standing before me, consuming my self-dignity
Touched me with your inpurity in a devoted embrace
The hatred frozed my world in shrouded despair

Righteous are the tears that s falling
Forever I drown into these memories, in your arms
Righteous are the tears that s falling
Enclosed in sin I welcome defeat, take me away

Surrounded by disgust I entered death
Where s my pride to defend, lost in dreamlike anquish
All my tears before now seems so trivial
In company with loneliness I return dead inside

I face the emptiness that has become my life

Righteous are the tears that s falling
Forever I drown into these memories, in your arms
Righteous are the tears that s falling
Enclosed in sin I welcome defeat, take me away

Surrounded by disgust I entered death
Where s my pride to defend, lost in dreamlike anquish
All my tears before now seems so trivial

This wicked dream shaped and formed to life
Standing before me, consuming my self-dignity
Touched me with your inpurity in a devoted embrace
The hatred frozed my world in shrouded despair

Righteous are the tears that s falling
Forever I drown into these memories, in your arms
Righteous are the tears that s falling
Enclosed in sin I welcome defeat, take me away

Surrounded by disgust I entered death
Where s my pride to defend, lost in dreamlike anquish
All my tears before now seems so trivial
In company with loneliness I return dead inside
5. The Destiny Forsaken (4:19)
Painful is the longed for contact
A rape of our substitute harmony
In your eyes I saw the same reaction that I felt
But the tears ain t for you to decline

The torn up scars bloom to wounds again
And with hatred I loved you for it
This emotionally devouring moment
Shattering all the barricades to pain

Stay away from my hopes, our memories too obstinate
Stay away painful tears, we betrayed our life to be
The destiny forsaken, the destiny forsaken

A wintertime dismantled my beliefs
And along with the nature I died
In stillness reborn to a hollow existence
Now I m only a shade of a shadow

Painful is the longed for contact
A rape of our substitute harmony
In your eyes I saw the same reaction that I felt
But the tears ain t for you to decline

Stay away from my hopes, our memories too obstinate
Stay away painful tears, we betrayed our life to be
The destiny forsaken, the destiny forsaken

Another winter in yet another decade
A dying soul never healed
Forever weakening in the hands of
This destiny forsaken
6. Crown Of Emptiness (4:49)
Substancial memories worn out through the years
Like old pictures fades into persistent oblivion
The shades of the past relightens the sorrow
Unveil my sense and let forgetting relieve

Like a curse destined to me, this crown of emptiness
Fallen for my joy denied, the crown of emptiness

Obscure truth that i have to relive
A sadness ever consuming
My back turned to the world i cry
And await for the touch of mercy

A soul to cherish forever, i wasn t allowed to sustain
In a world perfect, there would be no room for me

Substancial memories worn out through the years
Like old pictures fades into persistent oblivion
The shades of the past relightens the sorrow
Unveil my sense and let forgetting relieve

Like a curse destined to me, this crown of emptiness
Fallen for my joy denied, the crown of emptiness

See my tears, feel my world, open heart to life s irony
Search your soul in my hands, the joy that wasn t ment for me

See my tears, feel my world, open heart to life s irony
Search your soul in my hands, the joy that wasn t ment for me
7. And I Close My Eyes (5:26)
As the sun sets, nothing have I done
A human life, like a blink of an eye for a god
As the time ends, born is a sense of failure
You watch us fall, and you close your eyes

I asked you for the meaning, for all my efforts
Why now when I could be so close to redemption
What is the point when I accomplished nothing
You felt my frustration, and you closed your eyes

Why the wars and hunger, injustice and pain
All the tears shed for a lost, endless cause
Why all this suffering, for a life we don t even understand
I want to know, but you closed your eyes

As the sun sets, nothing have I done
A human life, like a blink of an eye for a god
As the time ends, born is a sense of failure
You watch us fall, and you close your eyes

It hurts me to death to see, the things that we put others through
The beauty of life raped by this selfish world
You chose to show me the truth, a vision of total knowledge
I saw the end that we create and even I close eyes

All these tears shed for a lost, endless cause

I watch the falling skies, I see the determined rain
Tearing up the sadness surrounding
And even I close my eyes

I asked you for the meaning, for all my efforts
Why now when I could be so close to redemption
What is the point when I accomplished nothing
You felt my frustration, and we closed our eyes
8. Eternal (3:50)
[Originally performed by Paradise Lost]

Why can t we hear
The time must come for us to leave here
Emotion has withered away
Our burnt out love has decayed

Obsessed to leave the earth
Tragedy has overrun since birth

Now our righteous fathers weep
As we greet eternal sleep
Are we born to pass away

Cry at all that remains
Chosen words fail to sustain
The wisdom of powers heard
In dismal thoughts seemingly absurd

Now as hope and glory dies
We ll scream at our demise
Are we lost forever more

Now our righteous fathers weep
we ll greet eternal sleep
Are we born to pass away
9. Undeleived World (3:55)
For ages striven for guidance to harmony
Searching for answers to life s mysteries

The world we once knew now ceased to exist
Our science left no questions
Only an emptiness surrounding our lives
It should have stayed untold

Open eyes, into tears of undeceived world
Into life for us for so long unbeknown

Struck by disorder and confusion
A new civilization built upon the ruin of man
Why did it have to take this long to reveal
The truth of life

The world we once knew now ceased to exist
Our science left no questions
Only an emptiness surrounding our lives
It should have stayed untold

Open eyes, into tears of undeceived world
Into life for us for so long unbeknown

Open eyes, into tears of undeceived world
Into life for us for so long unbeknown
10. The Tears Of Time (6:45)
Even in death your beauty was drowning
The sadness of life is not for you no more
I embrace you and hold you tight in my arms
Mild as a mother I kiss you to a dreamless sleep

In your eyes I saw the pain for the task you had
In front of you, a game none of us can ever win

The tears for time, all we had together, the tears for time

In your comforting arms crying the last joy of my life
Never-lasting love in a hopeful moment, end was at hand

The tears for time, the tears for time

After endless hesitation you finally kissed me
with sadness, and the memory I will bring with me
In whatever here after follows

In your eyes I saw the pain for the task you had
In front of you, a game none of us can ever win

The tears for time, all we had together, the tears for time
