Recreation Day Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. The Great Deceiver (4:20)
I am your temptation
Your every vicious thought
Lacking self-confidence
Deception in it's purest form
I am your hesitation
When you wander in circles
The hand you reach for when no one's there
In a charade so perfect

Come walk this way
And I'll have you
I'll show you
Yearning, dreaming
Your humble servant
Your trust so precious
I'm the user, the abuser
Haunting, serving
The great deciever

I am your false beauty
I am your hidden hate
THe hideous face of sloth
What makes you degenerate
And I am the shadow
What you sense when no one's near
Discomfort & pleasure
'Til your chapter ends

Come walk this way
And I'll have you
I'll show you
Yearning, Dreaming
Your humble servant
Your trust so precious
I'm the user, the abuser
Haunting, serving
The great deciever
2. End Of Your Days (4:40)
I've tried it all
It's gone too far
And the worst of all
Is the promise that I can't keep

I have emptied every source
I have learned all there is to know

To stand by as you wither
To watch your spirit drain
I just wish hope could last forever
Last forever

So here we are
The end of your days
So here we are

So here we are
I have lost, I have failed
My promise not kept & I'm sorry

I have emptied every source
I have learned all there is to know

So here we are
Holding hand at the end of days
Your eyes slowly shuts
You hand lets go & I kiss you farewell
Farewell...

So here we are
The end of your days
So here we are

So here we are
I have lost, I have failed
My promise not kept & I'm sorry
So here we are
I promised hope forever, but I'm sorry
3. As I Lie Here Bleeding (3:50)
I place my foot on the first step
That leads me down into my fate
So father please forgive me
As I cannot see it end
I am now up on the table
It trembles under my weight
I wipe away the cold sweat
Close my eyes &...

Falling out of what I know is true
Falling come shelter me as I lie here bleeding
Falling away from what I thought was you
Falling come shelter me as I lie here bleeding

So speak & I listen
I'll take the time to hear you out
So scream & I sure listen
I just need a little time

Gathering the pieces of a stronger me
Helpless weak & battered
My wounds are bleeding

Falling out of what I know is true...

Gathering the pieces...

Falling out of what I know is true...
4. Recreation Day (5:22)
1 step at the time
Small progess seems futile
But is as valuable as life
I'm engaged to longing
With sorrow as the ring
Controlling me, denying me
My every mourning is in every way
The beginning of a recreation day
Time heals, but still the mourning reigns
I still breath when the loss reminds me again
I am here
Life is fear & sorrow's all I know
Am I in dept cause so it seems
But what I owe
I don't know
Devoured by guilt & cursed beyond control
My every morning is in every way
The beginning of a recreation day
5. Visions (6:02)
In a future not so distant
The sun & moon will still rise
But mother Earth shall force us to listen
I have seen it written
And so it shall it be done
I have a gift, some even call it a blessing
I'm caught in a dream
A dream where I can't run

Where I can't run...

Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
Wish I was caught in a dream
But I'm not so I'm
Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
Wish I was caught in dream
But I'm not...

I try to hide my visions
Throw'em in & lock'em up
In a room with just four walls
I did not choose this mission
Who pointed me the prophet?
With a crystal ball
I have a gift, some even call it a blessing
I'm caught in a dream
A dream where I can't run

Where I can't run...

Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
Wish I was caught in a dream
But I'm not so I'm
Dreaming, dreaming, dreaming
Wish I was caught in dream
But I'm not...
6. I'm Sorry (Dilba cover) (3:19)
I painted a picture of you
Your soul was red & your mind was blue
Destiny lad a light on my creation
This dream I had made a slave of my passion
Reality was always too far away

And we were happy until it came too close 1 day
Suddenly I faced the truth of my dream
My love had only been a picture, a scene
I suppose I needed to believe
Didn't want to see you had never been close to me

But I'm sorry
This illusion has caused you a lot of pain
And I have no solution
I'll try to never be back again

I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

I painted a picture of you
My dream was a lie & the lie became truth
Reality held his breath too long
It's disgusting what dreams can do

But I'm sorry
This illusion has caused you a lot of pain
And I have no solution
I'll try to never be back again

I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
7. Blinded (4:35)
Compelled to speak when not to speak
My words lead & I follow
I must talk or else I'm weak
Let no one know my shell's hollow

False world created
I just watch it come to life
Your faith's my weapon
And your trust by my side

Lost all my senses
Can't feel, can't hear, I'm
Blinded
Lost all my senses
Emotionally numb
Blinded

Nothing's sacred & no one's safe
I'm feeding on denial
Getting careless soon bound to fail
Fooled by my own betrayal

Are you lost in fury?
Fearing to fail
Are you aching for vengeance?
And got lost on the way
Are you hiding your anger?
Fearing truth will prevail
Ashamed of the present
And what you've become today

False world created...

Lost all my senses...
8. Fragments (5:37)
Fragments of the past flash before my eyes
Never ending streams of images colliding
Silhouettes of memories slowly fading away
Illusionary seductions haunts me in my dreams

Fighting for freedom
But the chains I'm in won't break
It will soon be too late

I am here, I am lost, I am weak, & bothered
Is this it?
Will I grow when my soul falters?
I am here, I am lost, I am weak, & bothered
Is this it?
Will I grow?
I am weak & bothered

Blinded by the fear
Of being left alone
I seek the truth within
As the shadows are closing in

Calling oblivion
Cause the state I'm in won't change
And I'm fighting for freedom
Cause the chains I'm in won't break

I am here, I am lost
I am weak & bothered
Is this it?
Will I grow when my soul falters?
9. Madness Caught Another Victim (3:00)
I've been searching for so long
For someone to lead the way
And I've been searching for someone
Someone to ease the pain
And I've been searching for someone
Anyone to help me cure my shame
Madness caught another victim
And the victim's name is blame

What are my options?
When the road I'm walking ends
What are my options?
When all my ambitions fails

The words you now are reading
Are meant for your eyes only
I hoped for strength but now I'm leaving
Cause I fear my feelings
And to not do you justice
Is too much for me to bare
And as courage is my weakness
I choose the cowards path

What are my options?
When the road that I'm walking ends?
And what are my options?
When the last ship of hope have sailed
What are my options?
When the road that I'm walking ends
So what are my options?
When my words are all that remains
10. Your Darkest Hour (6:16)
Feel free to question me
Let out the hate you feel
Blame all your doubts on me
And your caving reality
I will not judge, I cannot judge
So feel free to question me

I would hold you when you're sleeping
I would guide you when you're drifting
I'd be the light you seek in your darkest hour

I will show you how to leave it
Out of the darkness & into the light
Leave it
I will show you how to leave it
To find a new day & a vision in bright

Feel free to question me
Let out the hate you feel
Walk throught insanity
And awake into crystal clarity

I will show you how to leave it
Out of the darkness & into the light
Leave it
I will show you how to leave it
To find a new day & a vision in bright
11. Unforgivable Sin (4:15)
Lonely thoughts from a lonely mind
He fights for recognition
Desperate tries only
Increasing the pressure
Falls blind unseen forever
The children of today
The children of tomorrow
Forced out of a life of their own
We are the sinners of these days
And only bringers of sorrow
We're only bringers of sorrow

Unforgivable sin
Temptation too big
Unforgivable sin
Temptation too big
Unforgivable sin
Unforgivable...

Wounds inflicted a bloodstained soul
Distinct marks of violence
Skin fragments under nails
And a God forsaken fate
No holy water can save him now
A false prophet, a deceiving smile
Arms open - here's trust to find
A man of God, a temptation too big
Unforgivable sin

No holy water can save him now
And no prayers can cleanse the lust
He used, abused, & he raped the trust
The innocence of a life is lost

Unforgivable sin
Temptation too big
Unforgivable sin
Temptation too big
Unforgivable sin
Temptation too big
