Crimes of Passion Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Isolation (5:23)
Turn on the TV and turn off your mind
Kill your own thoughts... be one of the brainwashed kind
Opinion's not your own... take a look at your empty brain
It's thrown away and flushed right down the drain

Open your eyes and see
Unchain your thoughts... set your mind free

Get your daily dose of eMpTy V
It's a growing trend... an epidemic I see
In your own world... virtual reality
(There's) No innovation just boring monotony

In cyberspace you've been caught
Just start to think instead of being taught

[Chorus:]
Using media with infatuation
It's the breakdown of communication
(Realize) You put yourself in isolation
[Repeat 2 times]

[Solo]

Don't you know you build your prison...
Every day... brick by brick
You're eating their words and you don't feel,
That they make you sick
The big machines take care of you until the fashion fades
The big machines take control of you
Until you kill yourself

Open your eyes and see
Unchain your thoughts...
Unchain your thoughts and then set your mind free

[Chorus 3x]
2. Dregs of Society (4:37)
They gather together - watch out!
The troops of hate - take care - don't be late
Spreading out their ugly body of thought
Anger's their religion - fight's their destiny
I can't believe this stupid ideology
It's so strange, as if their minds are deranged
Their minds are so deranged

You don't make sense to me - can't you see
You never heard about equality - yeah yeah
You're no better than your enemy
No such thing called a superior race
Nothing special ‘bout the colour of your face
You gotta give your brother some space
We're all a part of the human race

Dregs of society... you don't make sense to me

History thaught ‘em nothing
Raging violence against minorities
Thought that was left behind in the last century
Upcoming evil - the snakes around
We have to grind them into the ground
Don't close your eyes - we have to face the truth

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Dregs of society, don't make no sense to me
Dregs of society, never heard about equality
Dregs of society, hate what they just can't be
Dregs of society, no better than your enemy
Hey, listen close... you're no better, than your enemy
3. Loneliness (5:12)
Darkest night surrounding me...
Feel like trapped in a prison cell
My mind's empty - nothing's left to say...
Somebody please get me out of this hell

I am bound in sadness - can't see the light of day
Who will stop all this madness,
Before my life goes astray

Just the same old situation -
Another day has passed away
Lost faith in any relation - that's why I sit and pray

I wanna tear down the walls
I've been built around myself
I wanna break the silence now,
Just before I go insane

[Chorus:]
Don't want to play this one-man-show
In my theatre of pain
Don't want to run the race alone
Through the desert far from home
Don't want to be a shipwrecked man
Got lost at sea

Each night I walk the streets alone -
Smilin' faces all around
Don't know what went wrong -
Peace of mind I haven't found
The wind that's growing strong,
It won't push me to the ground

I want to clear the wind and rain,
Set my eyes to the sun
I want to melt the ice around,
Before my soul gets frozen

[Chorus:]
Don't want to play this one-man-show
In my theatre of pain
Don't want to run the race alone
Through the desert far from home
Don't want to be a shipwrecked man
Got lost at sea

[Solo]

I want to clear the wind and rain,
Set my eyes to the sun
I want to melt the ice around... ice around

[Chorus]
4. Wasted Time (5:50)
I remember the night a strange dream
Came into my mind
I see an old man... too weak to rise...
He is catching his breath
And his eyes they fade to grey...
All his years have gone away

Time passes by within his mind
Just like a movie on a screen
Soon will fall the final curtain,
Tears are runnin' down his face

Did he take all his chances,
Or give them careless away?
Did he cross all the fences,
Or savely stay on one side?
He gotta meet this challenge...
He has to pass this test!

[Chorus:]
Just take your heart in your hand
And put your head up in the clouds!
Hear the tickin' of the clock,
It's telling tales of wasted time!
We all got our crosses to bear,
But they won't drag us down!
Just stand up and turn the page,
Make up your mind
Don't waste your time!

Sometimes the walls are closing in
And shadows dance before my eyes
It ain't easy to face my fears,
I hope my will is strong enough!

I wanna take all my chances,
Don't want to give them away
I gotta meet this challenge...
I have to pass the test

[Chorus]

[Solo]

I remember the night
A strange dream came into my mind

[Chorus]
5. Face to Face (6:19)
Think it over... Bury your pride... Think it over...
You gotta leave the past behind!

Here we are again - eye to eye, face to face
Leave the door, we walked through, closed behind us
This is the time to trace problem to it's source
No run for cover, just the two of us... alone

[Pre-chorus:]
You say: “Nothing's gonna last forever!“
But I can't take it no more, take it no more

[Chorus:]
Come on, think it over, it's gotta be just face to face
You'll leave the past behind, if it's only face to face
Bury your pride and say Goodbye, let us talk right face to face
We got a long road ahead, if it's only face to face

I may be better off without it, though it's hard that way
We lost the key to our emotions in the dust of our days
The choice is yours to kick the door for a new beginning
It looks like now or never, to turn a bad thing into good

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus:]
Come on, think it over, it's gotta be just face to face
Bury your pride and say Goodbye, let us talk right face to face
We got a long road ahead, if it's only face to face

Think it over... Bury your pride... Leave the past behind!

[Solo]

[Chorus]
6. Inner Strength (7:17)
Sometimes our lives flow like a river
Searching for the sea
Sometimes we´re like leaves
Dancing in the storms of autumn
Sometimes we feel like a flower
Reaching for the light of the sun
Sometimes we´re like sheep without a shepard -
Lost in the desert

Have we lost our way - where´s the destination
Close your eyes - let your spirits fly

[Chorus]
Listen close - deep in your mind -
A hidden power called
Inner Strength
Follow the path - to the depth of your soul -
And you will find
Inner Strength

Sometimes life´s like a call never getting an answer
Sometimes we´re all like drifters looking for our way

And if you´ve lost your way -
Don´t know the destination
Close your eyes - let your spirits fly

[Chorus]

We are all travellers on a journey through time
Always wandering in this labyrinth... called life
What we´ll find... it´s in your mind

[Solo]

Like a river searching for the sea
Like a leaf dancing in the storm
Like a flower reaching for the sun
Like sheep without a shepard
Like a river searching for the sea
Like a leaf dancing in the storm
Like a call never getting an answer
Like a drifter looking for the way

[Chorus]
7. Perfect Crime (5:03)
Lyin' awake - can't fall asleep
Runnin' after me - the bloody creep
A vision - a movie in my mind
Killer in dreams - no peace to find
Rising fear - a cold shiver
My body starts to shake and quiver

It's haunting me - scaring the shit out of me
My life has spiraled into insanity

[Chorus:]
A thriller in my mind - life runs out of time
Murderer in dreams - it's a perfect crime

The phobia - hit me every night
Sanity slips away - this can't be right
A braindance no one else can see
I'm a shadow of the man I used to be

It's haunting me - scaring the shit out of me
My life has spiraled into insanity

[Chorus:]
A thriller in my mind - life runs out of time
Murderer in dreams - it's a perfect crime 4 times

I'm so alone... I need some help...
‘Cause I'm scared to the bone

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
A thriller in my mind - life runs out of time
Murderer in dreams - it's a perfect crime
8. Fragile Dreams (6:44)
End of the day – I watch the crimson sunset
As daylight yields the dark of night
My inner thoughts will go on that secret journey
Where time gets lost and reason fail
I'm staring at the wall till I close my eyes for sleep
Hope I'll meet her again –
The princess of my dreams

She's so far away –
The world of ice –
The land of snow
And she shines brighter than a thousand suns
Gaze at her cold blue eyes –
Wanna kiss her icy lips
But still she's out of reach

[Chorus:]
To dream is my destiny,
The price to pay is high
The night is my only friend
And the stars up in the sky
She touched me with her eyes
Soft as an evening breeze
I wanna keep them in mind...
My own fragile dreams

Am I crazy – chasing a phantom of my mind
Is it just an imagination
I don't care – I have to walk this path alone
Ooh destination unknown

[Chorus:]
To dream is my destiny,
The price to pay is high
The night is my only friend
And the stars up in the sky
She's like a blanket on a cold winter's night
She fills my days with joy
Makes my life big and bright
She touched me with her eyes
Soft as an evening breeze
I wanna keep them in mind...
My own fragile dreams

Princess:
On a cold winter's night...
I'll be back to be your destiny

All day long
The thoughts are runnin‘ through my head
Can't wait to see her again –
Can't wait her to take me away

Till the end of my days,
I wanna keep my dreams alive...
Keep your dreams alive
Leave this world behind,
Gonna take my lonely road
Forever and ever
Til the end
9. Freedom Call (6:09)
You... you climb on the hills
But you feel the hills are too high
On and on, you fall to the ground
As you try to reach for the sky

Are you just a piece in someone else's game
Are you just a number, are you just a name
You live inside a capsule, ooh you wanna break out
I watch you getting mad, I hear you scream and shout

The worries of your days
They keep you awake, you can't sleep at night
Pictures of life you have in your mind
You're trying so hard it never turns out right

There has to be something more
You gotta get down, down to the core
Stand up straight, come on... break out
Lose the chains... scream and shout

[Chorus:]
Come on, hear the freedom call,
Like a shot in the dark, an echo in the hall
Come on, it's my freedom call,
Lend me a hand, catch me before I fall
Just before I fall... catch me!

Every day of your life's just the same
Your energy fades away... it fades away
Force back the tears of frustration
On your way in search of salvation
The chapter's closed... make a brand new start

There has to be something more
You gotta get down, down to the core
Stand up straight... break out

[Chorus]
10. Hands of Fate (6:27)
I stand upon the crest and take a look out to the sea
The thoughts come to my mind make me want to flee
Sanity fades away like water in the sand
Where does this hatred come from, that I don't understand
Will this nightmare ever end, or are we victims of our heavy hand?
Remaining time is short to make up our minds
Do you really think, that peace is so hard to find
We have to be careful with the spark that starts a fire
‘Cause these times are like we're walking on thin wire
...Like a walk on wire!

Rival leaders go to war
Fighting the battle in the name of some god
Taming the land
Bringing death and hunger for all people
This hate's a killer
In a breedin' frenzy that's growin' faster
So wake up and stand up
Fight the beast that's driven by fury
Save the people deliver us from evil
The bringer of hatred has to be eliminated!

IS IT ALL IN THE HANDS OF FATE?

Children on the beach
They want to play in the water - but it's black
They're takin' what we give them
So why we don't care?
We gotta give Mother Earth a little dignity
We gotta leave our children
Somewhere to go, something to live for
We're only footsteps away from the end
Dancin' on the edge - do we know what we're doing?

IS IT ALL IN THE HANDS OF FATE?

Let's come to our senses, ‘cause it won't be too late
I don't think, that this really has to be our fate
No life's so short, that it can't be turned around
So raise your voice - don't live your life in the underground

It's time to end up this fight - don't hesitate
It's time to walk into the light
End up the fight - walk into the light

If we don't give up, we will live on
And make this place worth living in
So people join hands and let us be friends
The future is ours - don't waste it
The rainbow of blackness will disappear
The clouds of despair will vanish
Together we stand against all the hate

We got the power to win this game!
