Mind Games Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Firestorm (5:19)
Imagine if there was a dream upon your stage
And all the time, a battle raged on within you
How could you end the war for good?
Amethyst valley bound engulfing every sound

Silence, never close to enough
Conquest maybe just too much
Insight in the clutches of heart and soul
Dreamscapes, you cannot outshine the firestorm

Struggle to see, night and day or, blackness fills the sky
Entrapped within the, blinded by the brightness of your eyes
All of the wasting, all of the wanting, beating down your walls
As your heart burns in the flames of the firestorm

Wait for the match to spark the flame
A way to find warmth and shelter once again
Fathom, tomorrow's yesterday
Apprehension, firestorm burns its way

Feel like sense has found its way, phoenix defiance that it's made
Waiting for our prophets hope to come, knowing that we'd surely die
In the firestorm

Struggle to see, night and day or, blackness fills the sky
Entrapped within the, blinded by the brightness of your eyes
All of the wasting, all of the wanting, beating down your walls
As your heart burns in the flames of the firestorm

Fighting a need to escape, and twisting these bars that I have made
Soldier, soldier, soldier, screaming to begin
Deep pain, it happens all again

Struggle to see, night and day or, blackness fills the sky
Entrapped within the, blinded by the brightness of your eyes
All of the wasting, all of the wanting, beating down your walls
As your heart burns in the flames of the firestorm
2. Mind games (5:24)
I can feel, how do you know
I can stand, I will make you fall
There is a way, they'll all stare and laugh at you
I will pray, maybe then you'll realize

That: when you wake up and you feel it
You find that there's nowhere to run
What's the matter, do you have a headache where your mind used to be
Come on now, it's not like you, it seems you're out of control
Think fast, you lack soul kid, now it's a mind game, me and you

You are here, when did you realize
I will fight, what happened all this time

I get the impression here that you don't understand
I have to tell you son this game will never end
And all you'll see someday is an old man asking why
Why he never found himself, what happened to his life

And then you will wake up and feel it, it's a mind game
You'll pay, you'll regret this, forget it now, you'll never get it

There is no need here now to make you understand
A little boy, a frightened child are trapped within this man
I will talk about this game for a lifetime to come
And everyone will think of you when they think of giving up

When they do, I'll be there playing the game that I played with you
Let me tell you who I am, I am your fears, I am your nightmare, I am you

Saddened eyes and broken dreams, something's inside my bottle
All the things that make me the things that forced the night on
All this time I have listened to you, I played the game, I've lived it
Get out your soul-sucking sacrifice, I can't take it one more minute
Yes here it comes again another fact on fiction
I'm another man in another life, the world of no restrictions
Saddened eyes and broken dreams, something's inside my bottle
All the things that made me proud, the things that forced the night on

There is a way, yes I know
3. The chase (2:06)
[Instrumental]
4. The saviour and the disease (4:30)
Isn't it strange, how I can hear you now
They never hear your screams no matter how loud they are
But all your sins are gone and all your pain is over
And we are both in trouble now, damned to this hell forever

Isn't it strange how I can still hear you
I'm just like you I don't want to be here in this nightmare without you
You are the one who showed me it wasn't real
Now that you're gone, I'm really gone too

And I wish they all could see
Depression's the symptom it's not the disease
It's closing in on me like the millions who begged to be free
Isn't it strange

Where is the old man to calm me and keep me from my pain
He's always there searching for a way to help you
Make you stronger, so he says, or to tear you down
He's a killer, he's a fugitive, he's a liar, in cover of the night
They call him Mr. Suicide, grab his hand he'll take you on the ultimate ride
Mr. Suicide, grab his hand he'll take you on the ultimate fucking ride

Isn't it strange
5. Despair (3:55)
Eyes so cold, hope so far away
The vision never goes away
A prison called my home, these same four walls
I wish I could turn back time

I know that feeling when all else is gone
And I will be here for you to take you within the final song
Despair and loneliness, as fleeting as a kiss fades with sound
And you can bask in the mist, emotionless, desire's going round and round

Memories set in, the sound of the wind
The tales of despair plague me
There's no way out of here, there's no light for me
I'm just a man with his dreams all gone

I know that feeling when all else has gone
And I will be here for you to take you within the final song
Despair and loneliness, as fleeting as a kiss whispers without sound
And you can bask in the mist, emotion bliss, desire's going round and round
Despair and loneliness, as fleeting as a kiss it fades without sound
And you can bask in the mist, emotionless, desire's going round and round

Light
I want to be near you
So come tonight
I can't see you
Fades without sound
6. Crawl before you walk (7:59)
The smoky mist it hovered over the distant echoes of your voice flow through
my soul
The wind blows silent like a mystery standing on a mountain top within my
dream
They comfort me

And I don't know how I'm supposed to feel
None of this makes any sense at all to me
Lullabies sung by a distant memory, seems to hold me when I'm down
In this world of quiet sadness
Golden chalices filled with madness they come for me
Broken hearts lie all around me
A flowing pastel red upon the ground in the place I'm in

I gazed up into the night sky
Shivering cold from a brave man's destiny
As I opened up my eyes a strange light seemed to shine all over me

I heard this voice from nowhere surrounding all that wasn't there
Confirming all believing it was the time it said
You have to:

Crawl, crawl before you walk, walk before you run, run before you die
You have to feel, feel before you hurt, hurt before you learn, learn before
you try

I feel like a wheel turning, turning on midnight - distorted - faces
I feel like a wheel lights up my eyes, happiness befalls me in some peculiar
way
I feel like a wheel turning, turning on midnight

You have to:
Crawl, crawl before you walk, walk before you run, run before you die
You have to feel, feel before you hurt, hurt before you learn, learn before
you try

Now the mist was clearing I could see the stars that lit the sky
I waited silent calls for a voice, a vision I could not find
Never heard but I wasn't jaded and that voice of reason never left my mind

You have to:
Crawl, crawl before you walk, walk before you run, run before you die
You have to feel, feel before you hurt, hurt before you learn, learn before
you try

Oh no it's looking right at us but you don't have to like this
7. Viper II (5:00)
Now's the time to hold the wind
The fire, the flames, the beast of prey
And the viper must feed

Hey you foolish one do you think it breaks my heart
To see, see you bleed after you tore at me: as the viper feeds

Think before you do, no, not you, you play to lose
And hell it's more than hurt, it's more than just a word
You can't just walk away: the viper will feed

Hold on to my hand we'll watch this once again
Eat, fill yourself oh viper
Sink your teeth into subjugated meat
Tear down their will please, viper

But now we can get through, my viper's near, all over you
My hate is spewing forth with lightning force, I must eat
So the viper has got to feed

Hold on to my hand we'll watch this once again
Eat, fill yourself my viper
Sink your teeth into sacrificial meat
Tear down their will please, viper

Now's the time to hold the wind
The fire, the flames, the beast of prey
And the viper must feed
8. Faith (3:07)
Faith has no meaning
On the shores of mediocrity
Oh can't you see
That your faith is meant to falter
In the depths of hell
Oh can't you tell
That when the keys of the palace are denied
Their worth is justly tried

And yes, you do mean something to me
And I will fight to the death until you are free
And the race is finally won
United together as one
You must have faith
9. Endless journey (5:35)
Do problems have endings where are you now
In my gravest hour of need
Soldier, all you do when I come to see you
Is point the way and tell me that I must believe

So crying deep inside I push into the shadows
Waiting for the end to show
Soldier, can you tell me even to sedate me
Who is my fortune and who the hell is my foe

And yes the star is rising higher
But must I pay with so much pain and the passage it changes
Moving its walls low enough to meet the ground, the passage it changes
Throwing at us darkness and forcing us to lose gained ground
And yes the star is getting clearer
But must I pay with the torment of my brain

As I make my stand and take the endless journey
I know I'm all alone again
Fighter of the faith, defender of the Journey
As I walk into the distance I see a full moon rising
And demons of the freedom make their stand
Having no choice I run the other way
Swearing not to give up and never to meet their demands

And yes the star is getting bluer
But still it seems far beyond my reach and the passage it changes
Moving its halls until there is no way out, the passage it changes
Throwing in decoys, always leaving that doubt
And yes the star is getting closer
And yes I do have to pay with far too much pain

Do problems have endings where are you now
In my gravest hour of need
Soldier, all you do when I come to see you
Is point the way and tell me that I must believe
10. Eulogy (5:17)
First of all, thank you all for coming here
I'm really glad to see you all again
Looking down upon this place it's hard to believe I'm here
I thought I should say goodbye once again

For all of those who knew me
I hope I didn't let you down
For all of those who loved me
There was a different side you found

In my life I've struggled to be the best I could
I had my doubts, I cried a lot, more than any person should
And I felt you all should know now
There was a side of me not known
Sometimes I was laughing
When I didn't want to be alone

I was alright most of the time
I was alright most of the time

Whenever you are lonely
And you just break down and cry
Whenever you feel a gentle breeze
It will be me that's passing by

I love you all look after each other
Don't let your dreams go away
Cause I'm up here now and I'm talking with God
And he said everything will be OK

Protect those people I love God
Because I'm no longer there
Tell them all how I feel
Tell them that I cared

One day we will meet again
On some other distant plane
And I will take you in my arms
And be close to you again

And oh, I'll pray for you all
Oh, oh is seems that night time always falls
In this place we're in, in this place we're in
11. Eternity (bonus track) (5:00)
It's 10:00 AM, it's time to rise, make sense of the world again
My pain is too great to hide

Oh I feel it, yes I see it, almost as if time had saved the day
Not a matter I decide

But down here time goes slow
Down here time goes slow
The forgotten people and the dreamers that it left behind
Down here time goes slow
Down here time goes slow

Burning feeling, romantic pressures seem to be right here
And so the story goes
When I told of this, a casual look of care
But the feeling, doesn't lie, I was alone now:
Not a matter to decide to bare

And how do I fight against the feelings from an iron soul?
And how far did you come on the quest of the story told?

Down here time goes slow
Down here time goes slow
Acting on its captors as if they should never know
That down here time goes slow
Down here time goes slow

Now I'm feeling, slowly tortured, abiding to the task
Feeling captured, repeated torture I take off the sadist mask
Eternity (X) will you ever do me wrong?

Down here time goes slow
Down here time goes slow
Hoping that one day maybe the world will know
That down here time goes slow
Down here time goes slow
12. Switchblade (bonus track) (3:41)
A million thoughts have passed me by, it's hard to keep the rhythm
Someone like me is gonna lick it clean I'm gonna fuck up the system
Who turned out the light, why are these chains wrapped around me
The pain breaks the soul, screw this man I'm gonna pay with blood

Cutting like a switchblade
Pray to your god tonight
Oh what a beautiful, beautiful day to die

They call these streets the animal zone
The slaughterman makes the killin'
I'm the saint with the balls to carry it out
Hey man what you lookin' at?

There ain't no reason for me, to give a damn about the blood I'm takin'
God without a cause, I'm sick and tired of everyone screamin' at me

Cutting like a switchblade
Pray to your god tonight
Oh what a beautiful, beautiful day to die
