Forbidden Path Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Gate to Infinity (Instrumental) (1:08)
[Instrumental]
2. Light the Light (5:20)
Take a look in the mirror, what do you see?
What makes you stare as if spellbound?
Such a sad sight, the fading glory
Could this be the end of the story? oh yeah
Shivers running down your spine, darkness shadows the light
No one to hear your desperate cries, you'll be paralyzed
All the would have beens, the could have beens
All waste away, fade to grey
Innocence dying in so many ways
Dreams of your life, lost in a haze
Shivers running down your spine, darkness shadows the light
No one to hear your desperate cries, you'll be paralyzed
Standing at the crossing, looking in the sky
Waiting for the stars to align the way

[Chorus:]
Light the light, hear the distant call
Terrified by this world of sorrow
Light the light, shoutin' out for dawn
In the night, praying for tomorrow

Secret hearts are beatin' fast, angry words they fall
Time and time the story's told, you will rise or fall
Falling tears collecting, in a shallow pool
Sacred eyes will see the reflecting fool

[Solo]

Time and time the dreams have gone
Who will light the light of dawn

Take a look in the mirror, what do you see?
What makes you stare as if spellbound?
Such a sad sight, the fading glory
Could this be the end of the story? oh yeah
Shivers running down your spine, darkness shadows the light
No one to hear your desperate cries, you'll be paralyzed
Standing at the crossing, looking in the sky
Waiting for the stars to align the way

[Chorus 3x]
3. Into My Own Hands (6:38)
A darkened room, prayers go out like silent cries
I'm asking for truth, all that's offered are lies
Demons haunting my soul, laughing at me
I'm down in a hole, it's no desperate dream,
Can't break this spell, can't find the key

Screaming in the dark, sighing in the night
I'm begging for redemption
What life's all about
People all around me they keep on telling
You gotta crawl before you walk
You gotta cry before you talk
The wheels of time keep on rollin'
No magic mirror will erase
The lines of life carved deep in my face

[Pre-chorus:]
I opened the door step out in the drivin' rain
Hear footsteps close behind me
Into darkness I try to carry on
All of a sudden somebody called out my name

I'm crying out for angels
The ones that strucked me down
Left me lying in the rain
Left me alone in pain
I'm swimmin' 'gainst the tide
Life's river gonna drown me
Gotta sail on stormy waters
'til my soul will find it's peace

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus:]
My tortured soul in endless time
I'm ready to take a chance
At the crossroad I'll make my stand
Life's in my own hands

I'm crying out for angels...

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]

Take my chance - take this life - make my stand
4. The Final Call (0:54)
All alone, all by myself, my stare is blank and cold
There's no turning back, the truth of life's unfold
The lights grow dim, an empty stage, the curtain's soon to fall
From the distance I hear the final call
5. Edge of the World (6:27)
Hands are shaking, my body's aching, wild thoughts spinning through my head
Pressure's rising, my skin is tight, is this the beginning of the end
Heading towards the light at the end of the tunnel
No way out - I can't get off of this train - no way out!
"Seize the day" I heard them say, when I turned and walked away
I was blinded by paradise, now I'm drowned in my own dreams
Now I have to swollow this last bitter pill
No way out - the door is locked forever - no way out

[Chorus:]
Here I am, night and day will collide - I'm at the edge of the world
Here I am, alpha and omega unite - I'm at the edge of the world

Trembling - head is numb, as I try to speak
Feeling icy tears running down my cheek
Everything's so far away, while nothing seems fullfilled
Wishing to be strong, while the worst is gonna come

Heading towards the light at the end of the tunnel
No way out - I can't get off of this train - no way out!

[Chorus:]

Side by side with myself again, truth so hard to believe, feelin' deceived
Standing at the edge - at the edge - at the edge of the world

[Solo]

[Chorus 2x]
6. Les Rêves en Plastique (5:15)
Night falls in - shades flashing over the sidewalk
Emptiness freezes the soul to death
Step by step, shot by shot, life fades outta your body
The cries are in vain, they die away in pain

Life is slippin' - you lie as a slave at their feet
Freedom's gone by the chains of lies

Angel faces lie to you in the name of god
You waste your bucks for eternal peace
Hypocrites they talk and gonna blurr your mind
Their way to bliss is your road to ruin

They fill up your ears and they dazzle your eyes
They promise you glory and lead you to a church of lies

[Chorus:]
Don't you be a fool, don't get blinded by the light
Let your mind be your guide
Just be strong, the game they play is just a trick
Ce sont les rêves en plastique

On the TV you take a look in the face of war
What about our politicians - do they really care no more
It's a shame how children choking on a crust of bread
While in our western world, millionaires getting rich and fat

This is one world and it's enough for you and me
So why we create a second or third?

[Chorus:]

Make up your mind, don't be a fool
Playing their game and just be a believer
They gonna blind you and tell you lies
It's the mask of the great deciever

[Solo]

The fear... the lies... the hunger

[Chorus]
7. Forbidden Path (4:10)
Cast up in the burning skies, it's glowing fiery red
Somewhere so far away the journey lies ahead
So far we've come to nowhereland so far away we've flown
Lost in time in this tortured land so many miles away from home

I have lost the cool winds of heaven, lost the clear blue sky
Since the day I went away, left the early days aside
Gotta live free! Cast away the shadows!
Gotta leave the heathen way and walk the open road

So tired of being alive, my soul cries out in pain
Wash the dust from my face, wipe away the blood stain

[Chorus:]
Angels crying - souls are dying - on the forbidden path

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Angels crying - souls are dying - on the forbidden path

Fall down on my knees, praying for forgivness
Sins no longer overwhelming
Finally made my way back home

Blood and tears, pain and fear, lives in misery
Out on the killing fields, no one else but me
Hate and anger, pride and envy, killed my sanity
The licking flames of hell no longer reachin' me

[Chorus:]
Angels crying - souls are dying - on the forbidden path

The hellfires - the flames - don't get me - out on the forbidden path!
8. Losing Ground (4:52)
A thousand times I trusted you - my Love
Let you into my world, no one else has seen before
Turned myself inside out for you - my Love
My fear, my hopes and my twisted state of mind, yeah
Took a look inside my soul - and now
Time's running out too fast, though I want to make it last

Maybe I always knew that this love's a betrayal
Maybe I always knew that my dreams will soon be broken

[Chorus:]
The world is tumbling, I'm losing ground as we change from day to night
Fading away - it feels so strange how we turn from black to white

[Solo]

Where's the truth, can't it be found - my Love
Alone by myself, memories floating the mind
Under dark and cloudy skies - so grey
Hope will save the day, I'm crying tears of pain - standing in the rain

I ask myself
What went wrong
I won't let it go
This love so strong

[Chorus:]
The world is tumbling, I'm losing ground as we change from day to night
Fading away - it feels so strange how we turn from black to white
9. Set the Sails (4:02)
Ooh, Mother - I'm gonna leave and I won't return... I won't return
Ooh, Father - leave you behind in search for the course... to search what I learned

[Chorus:]
We set the sails leave for a distant shore...
Set the sails ooh yeah
We set the sails leave for a distant shore...
Gotta find direction
Gotta do just what I have to do
We set the sails leave for a distant shore... oh... oh...

Ooh, Mother - dry all your tears - I will return... I will return
Ooh, Father - to loose means to win, to search means to find a place so unkind

[Chorus:]

[Solo]

Ooh, Mother - we'll meet again on that different shore... on that distant shore
Ooh, Mother - to loose means to win... that's what I know, where should I go?

[Chorus till the end]
10. Nightstalker (5:24)
It was an ancient time - on an eerie night - in a distant land
In my darkest hour I've been laid with a curse
I was trapped in this life - unsuspecting, innocent
Restless and wild - have to pay the prize

I gotta follow the call - in the moonlit night
Just around nightfall - you'll better hide

[Chorus:]
I'm comin' near - increasing fear - beware the nightstalker
No time to lose, or time to choose - don't let you steps falter

A slave to darkness - bound to the night
You'll never hear my feet nor ever see my shade
Mirror on the wall never shows my sight
An eternal walk is my tragic fate

I gotta follow the call - in the moonlit night
Just around nightfall - you'll better hide

[Chorus:]
I'm coming near - increasing fear - beware the nightstalker
No time to lose, or time to choose - don't let your steps falter

Wandering through the ages - my eyes never see the day
One bite will be contagious - would you dance with the wicked
In the midnight hour - do you dare to go
I will devour
Keep hold on to your crucifix
I'm out for a sacrifice

By the pale moonlight, wish I could be strong
Knowing the deeds I've done must be wrong
Down on my knees I pray to God above:
"Give me peace of mind and protect the things I love!"
There's an inner struggle with the beast inside
I'm led by the instinct - gonna lose this fight

[Chorus:]
I'm coming near - increasing fear - beware the nightstalker
No time to lose, or time to choose - don't let your steps falter
