Flood Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Under Skies ... (3:02)
A cold winter's night
Quiet and black
There's no one but us
And the whole world stands back
While we lose ourselves
In stories we tell

Suddenly everything changes
As we open doors into a different world
Everything that I knew
Seems to become untrue
And the sky changes colours
From grey into blue

Why wonder what's won
Why wonder what's lost
Why wonder if what we have
Was worth the cost
When we have all
That we could ever need to have

Sometimes we all feel discouraged
Are tired and sad
Or just in a strange mood
In the darkest of hours
Faced with the bitter truth
We need to find ways to make
Grey skies seem blue

So come on paint your grey skies blue
2. ...of Blue (5:02)
So here I am
Just a man with his empty hands
Right here I'd go down on my knees
And offer submission
If it made my grey skies blue

So hear my call
Well, it won't make no difference at all
Right here I would speak any vow
And promise I'd give
If it made my grey skies blue

I know that I have a habit
Of taking things too hard
How often you've almost got mad about that

Well, I know what you mean
When you say things are never as bad as they seem
Although I don't really think
That you are truly right
Every word I'll deny
If I get through this night

So here I am
Just a man with his empty hands
Right here I'd go down on my knees
And offer submission
If it made my grey skies blue

So hear my call
Well, it won't make no difference at all
Right here I would speak any vow
And promise I'd give
If it made my grey skies blue

Sometimes I wonder
Why we try to plan anything at all
It never works out
And life goes on its own secret ways

When I feel like I'm losing my grip
I remind you still saying
"Those days won't last forever,
I swear you'll be back under skies of blue"

Well, I know what you mean
When you say life is not as unfair as it seems
Although I don't really think
That you are truly right
Every word I'll deny
If I get through this night

So here I am
Just a man with his empty hands
Right here I'd go down on my knees
And offer submission
If it made my grey skies blue

So hear my call
Well, it won't make no difference at all
Right here I would speak any vow
And promise I'd give
If it made my grey skies blue
3. Black River (5:20)
There's a black river flowing
A poisoned stream
Out of nowhere it comes
And nowhere it leads
There's no today, and no tomorrow

That river is fed
By the dark thoughts of those
That have a black heart inside
And I feel how I get close
To them myself, in all my sorrow
And the river starts dragging me in

Silently I watched and waited
Each and every night
You should have anticipated
That something was not right

Would you hold the line
In days like these my friend
Would you hold the line
Or would you cut it off at your end

Something crawls out of the river
Something crawls all over my skin
Something is trying to get hold of my heart
I'm losing my sense of direction
And I cannot remember
Anything but the world fading to grey
As the river is dragging me in

Silently I watched and waited
Each and every night
You should have anticipated
That something was not right

Would you hold the line
In days like these my friend
Would you hold the line
Or would you cut it off at your end

In a short clear moment
I force all my resistance
So I stretch out my hands to reach out
For the river's bank

I'm not yet ready to go under
I'm not yet giving up
There still is a chance to find
Someone that's worth
Taking any risk, and taking on any fight
That makes me put all of these sorrows aside
Sometimes it takes just a word
To save a life

So if you get to that river one day
You better take my advice
Don't forget what I say
It's not too late to turn around
So don't let it drag you in

Would you hold the line
In days like these my friend
Would you hold the line
Or would you cut it off at your end

Would you hold the line
4. Very Own Design (5:42)
Catch a dream and let it
Take you by the hand
Follow your imagination
And you will discover wonderland
That place is nowhere to be found
But once in a while it may come around
You won't find it if you seek
But it can find you any time

Into clear water I look down
And I see strange creatures moving around
Is it a completely different world
Or a reflection that I see

A strange place is where they live
In a fragile dream they act as if
They were the only ones around
And that world was
Their very own design

Call it kind of madness
Call it just a dream
Call it lack of reason
Or you can call it lack of self-esteem

Sometimes when there is no way out
It may be wise to take the way inside
When you come back
You see thing clearer every time

Into clear water I look down
And I see strange creatures moving around
Is it a completely different world
Or a reflection that I see

A strange place is where they live
In a fragile dream they act as if
They were the only ones around
And that world was
Their very own design

We work hard all our lifetime
For a little place to call our own
Or anything, strong enough for clutching at
We're driven to go on and on
To ignore our broken pride, our broken hearts
And all those broken dreams we had

Take me away
I want to lay that pressure down
The daily treadmill eats us up
And when it spits us out again
We all have gone half the way to insanity
So what else could keep our souls alive but the hope
There's more to our lives
That there's another wilder bright reality

Take me away
I want to lay that pressure down
This is more than I can take

Sometimes when there is no way out
It may be wise to take the way inside
When you come back
You see things clearer every time

Into clear water I dive down
And I touch the creatures moving around
This is a completely different world
But truly this is real

A strange place is where we live
And from down here it looks as if
We were the only ones around
And this world was
Our very own design
5. In All That Time (8:03)
In a silent world
I had lived without sight or sound
In all that time

You know I felt that shame
But I put the blame on everyone around
In all that time

And I had lost all of my power, my faith and my belief
In all that time
And I had lost those wings that carried me
To any place I longed to be
In all that time

I should have
Let you know one thing
That what you saw
Was just my shadow

A picture black and white
The colours shining bright
Were washed away
In that rain still falling down on me

Was all that a curse
Whatever promised to get better
Turned out worse
In all that time

I lived under that spell
I was caught in my own private hell
In all that time

And I had lost all of my power, my faith and my belief
In all that time
And I had lost all hope
I was clutching at a burning rope
Helpless like a child
In all that time

I should have
Let you know one thing
That what you saw
Was just my shadow

A skeleton disguised
A soul devitalised
A body caught in automation

I lay awake that night
Wishing you could hold me tight
I could as well have been dead
I never dared to say the words I should have said
I should have known
That it won't get better just by waiting
Or telling myself
That I would try to be a better man
And I should have known
That I ran away too often
Instead of moving on

In a silent world
I had lived without sight or sound
In all that time

You felt my distress
And I can only guess
What you've been through
In all that time

I should have let you know
That I had lost all of my power, my faith and my belief
In all that time
And I had lost all hope
I was clutching at a burning rope
Helpless like a child
In all that time

I should have
Let you know one thing
That what you saw
Was just my shadow

A skeleton disguised
A soul devitalised
A body caught in automation

I lay awake that night
Wishing you could hold me tight
I could as well have been dead
I never dared to say the words I should have said
I should have known
That it won't get better just by waiting
Or telling myself
That I would try to be a better man
And I should have known
That I ran away too often
Instead of moving on
Instead of moving on
6. Lame Excuses (3:37)
I may not be one to rely on
Too often I'm not even there
It may be that I don't care
The way I should do
And all of that may be unfair

I know it's true
That I could have made more out of my life
But we have us, and bit of all we need
So I won't complain
And I need no lame excuses
To be just what I am
Nothing more

Probably it's true
That I am sometimes too proud
Of a career that might be even
Not worth talking about

I know that all our friends
Might make more money than I do
But I don't want to be in their shoes
Because that's my point of view

I know it's true
That I could have made more out of my life
But we have us, and bit of all we need
So I won't complain
And I need no lame excuses
To be just what I am
Nothing more

I could be a man of means
With a big house and a limousine
I could be all of that and more
And I could work all day
And work all night as well
Oh yes, I know
I know too well

That it's true
That I could have made more out of my life
But we have us, and a bit of all we need
So I won't complain
And I need no lame excuses
To be just what I am
Nothing more

None of us would need any lame excuses
If we were what we are
Nothing more
7. In Silent Grace (6:42)
Big sun, up in the sky
You burn my skin
And you hurt my eyes

Big river, closing in upon us
Our lives are swept away
In your floods that rise

The farmer lays the crop
Down into deadly ground
Growing our children's food

One day I walked in a river bed
A silent trace of waters that once flew
One day I stood on a mountain top
The world below was not the one I knew

We dance and laugh out in the acid rain
Are we travellers on a ship of fools ?

Are we all blind
Are we all blind or maybe
We just don't want to see
But want to trust that man on TV
Who's saying everything's going to be alright
Be alright for you and me
We walk right on the edge of nowhere
With our heads held high
And obviously nobody cares
They all walk on by
As if they were not concerned at all

You better look twice
At each line in the papers
You better look twice
At that man on TV
You better look twice
Into the eyes of your leaders
Or just look around
See the dying world
Don't you see it fade away
In silent grace

One day I walked in a river bed
A silent trace of waters that once flew
One day I stood on a mountain top
The world below was not the one I knew

We dance and laugh out in the acid rain
Are we travellers on a ship of fools ?

Are we all blind
Are we all blind or maybe
We just don't want to see
But want to trust that man on TV
Who's saying everything's going to be alright
Be alright for you and me
We walk right on the edge of nowhere
With our heads held high
And obviously nobody cares
They all walk on by
As if they were not concerned at all
8. Cavemen (6:17)
It's a golden age you say
But not for those
That choose to go their way
And not the way you chose
Why do you tell your son
What he has got to do
Why do you want him
To become exactly like you ?

In the end he will learn to know better
Than to trust in somebody like you

I don't believe in democracy's voice
I won't rely on a king to be wise
I won't give in to the majority's choice
Because I don't think that the majority's right

In the end I learnt to know better
Than to trust in the majority

So this time I won't be a victim
In all of these years I have learned to defend
My army's marched up and my strategy's clear
I'm back in the real life again

So watch out, I'll shoot without warning
If you get too close I will bite
We're always pretending to be civilized
Behaving like cavemen

A chain will only be as strong
As its weakest link
I won't rely on your tribal spirit
Because to me it is nothing but herd instinct

In the end I learnt to know better
Than to trust in a tribe like this
So this time I won't be a victim
In all of these years I have learned to defend
My army's marched up and my strategy's clear
I'm back in the real life again

So watch out, I'll shoot without warning
Don't get too close, I will bite
We're always pretending to be civilized
Behaving like cavemen

In the end I learnt to know better
Than to trust in a tribe like this
So this time I won't be a victim
In all of these years I have learned to defend
My army's marched up and my strategy's clear
I'm back in the real life again

So watch out, I'll shoot without warning
Don't get too close, I will bite
We're always pretending to be civilized
Behaving like cavemen
9. Simple Truth (5:20)
We have done everything to hurt
The other in this war without a word
We have fought for things that hardly were
Worth thinking about, so why don't you prefer
To break the silence
And put the weapons down
We can talk it over - still

Somehow we seem to have dislearned
To communicate, and that's why we have turned
To a form of silent conversation
That led us straight into alienation

I almost can't believe
That this is us, still you and me
That we just don't speak no more
What happened to the ones
We have been before ?

Sometimes we just don't understand
That the stone we kick away
Is a precious diamond 'til it's gone

Sometimes we have to speak our mind
Just to get the proof
That there never is a simple truth

If you had let me be the one I am
If I had let you be the one you are
If we both had sometimes tried to understand
Certainly it would never have come that far

I almost can't believe
That this is us, still you and me
That we sit right here
With our lips sealed tight
Instead of speaking it out
To make everything turn out right

Sometimes we just don't understand
That the stone we kick away
Is a precious diamond 'til it's gone

Sometimes we have to speak our mind
Just to get the proof
That there never is a simple truth

Well, I know
For you it's perfectly clear
What is going on here
That's your simple truth
Don't you know
I've got my own point of view
That might be just as true
As your simple truth
So turn around and open up your mouth
And speak your mind

I almost can't believe
That this is us, still you and me
We could make it right
Or break it up instead
But anyway we should not forget
We never know what we'll find
But we know what we leave behind

Sometimes we just don't understand
That the stone we kick away
Is a precious diamond 'til it's gone

Sometimes we have to speak our mind
Just to get the proof
That there never is a simple truth
10. Flood (5:43)
The wind and the rain
And the deep blue sea
Ahead and around
As far as the eye can see
Is it only cheap comfort
Or an easy way out
But did I have any choice
But breaking out ?

What good is a life
If all that it brings
Is the pain and frustration
To dance on the strings
What good is a man
If he's got nothing to give
If he's too strong to die
But too weak to live ?
