High Time Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Enter A Life (4:07)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

No devil, no angel
But I know how to be a stranger
I do not know my way about
But I'm seeking a way out
Out of a roundabout

Where are you from?
I really feel
Your eyes on me

Welcome
I am animated
Come enter a life
A life with me
Welcome
You are nominated
To be my next catastrophe

You are one small wonder
Here to tear, tear me asunder
I'm on a station here somewhere
Destination lies nowhere
Dare to meet me there?

Good luck if you do
Decide
Decide to take this ride
Be warned, I can't guarantee
That I would be
Good news for anyone
2. From Somewhere To Anywhere (3:48)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

Further away each and every day
I'll find a way to cross every ocean
Loneliness, a permanent emotion
Wherever may the journeyman stay

I'm on my way from somewhere to anywhere
I have learned not to ask when
I'll be there

You don't have to call me homeless
I'm at home in every place
But wherever I may go
I'll never be coming back home

The east and west, northlands and the rest
It's all the same, it's all a fair game
Loneliness has become my second name
But something still keeps up the flame
3. Sun Stones (4:52)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

Over
Wide open deep sea
Men toil on the trireme
The stream
Pulls us astray according
To our sun stones

The sail and the hull are silhouettes
As we consult
The stars and the stones
The captain's eyes
Are fixed in place
And the course is staying the same

With our charts all full of emptiness
We're sailing towards nothingness
Not a slightest bit
Keen to admit that we're
A ship in distress
With our charts all full of emptiness
We're sailing towards nothingness
Here's the irony
In all this foolery
We are calling it progress

Is there
After the edge of the earth
An endless fall
We all
Have heard the stories
But we have closed our ears

As many hands as there are sailors
Are pointing in discord
There's no clear
Outspoken fear
But it is starting to set in

Somewhere
Beyond the skyline
The ocean comes to an end
We fend
Off the uneasy feeling
That we're drawing near
4. The Flags In Line (6:16)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

I woke up, the dawn never came
Colder than yesterday it feels to me
We are coming home, we are young no more
Innocent as before playing our games

Call it a dream or an ideal
It's gone anyway
And the banners of the nations...

Today
They will march no more
The flags in line
They march no more
Today
Daydreams turned into grief
And disbelief

I see all the faces in the crowd
No more looking so proud or glorious
Our illusions are forever gone
And many deeds are done that can't be reversed

I woke up, the dawn never came
Colder than yesterday it feels to me
All these young men, they are young no more
To their very core they have been changed
5. Bring On The Storm (4:51)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

Fifteen days and nights
Out here in the wild
What is it that I'm hunting for
I'm not sure

It is moving fast
Through its native land
It is always one day ahead
Out of sight

Bring on the storm
Let it rage on

Won't give up, not this time
Can't stop now, anymore
It's time to finally gain the ground

I call upon the sky
Strike me with all your might
And see if I will turn around

Bring on the storm
Let it rage on
Make all my fears take form
Let it rain on my castle's keep
My mountain and my ocean's deep
Bring on the storm
6. The Shroud (4:35)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

In his sign
You will see these golden letters
Make sure that no one enters
My mighty high house

During the years
Every desire slowly walked in
Decorated walls are talking
Of riches and fame

And now he can tell
When your heart is made out of gold
It's going to weigh like hell

Ever wonder if all was worthwhile?
Seen through the haze?
You never found
Pockets in the shroud
Hear the thunder and brimstone raining
The rats in the race
They never found
Pockets in the shroud

What is left
Not so much of children's stories
But a basement full of worries
Deep underground

Once long ago
All the crossing roads were still there
When your hair has long since turned silver
There is no return

Who would have believed
A fool had built a house out of
The years he left unlived

Sky is coming down
Lightshow and the bitter rain
Echoing sound of pairs of boots
They are walking up a hill
On the borderlines of sleep
On such a day
It is fine that it should rain
7. Firewood (4:44)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

Winter
Has not yet come
But it's not afar
As I approach
My fireplace

Wary
This is a sanctuary and a hideaway
I light a flame and end the day

And something comes alive, it's burning, turning into fire
Shows me a wonder under the November sky
I stare and stare and dare not speak a word or whisper
I might scare it away by the smallest sound

Tonight
I don't need much for a serene mood
A hatchet
And some firewood

And something comes alive, it's burning, turning into fire
Shows me a wonder under the November sky

I'm not alone
There just happens to be no-one here
Where the stars are near and air is clear
Crystals of water are frozen into ice
Where your eyes don't meet the city lights
8. Lifetime (3:33)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

A bullet train is coming through
Rain and gasoline
Hear the melody?
Do as winners do

Life is calling my number
In this place and time
It's fine to be alive
It's fine to be alive

No need
For fortune, hope or glory
I have a lifetime
To make history

For me
It's not a game of hide and seek
I have a lifetime
That's all the time I need

A stray dog is coming through
Lost and never found
A homeless greyhound
Do as drifters do

Today no closed doors or dead ends
But open air and sun
Let it all come
Every day someone is born again
I want to be that one
Let it all come
9. Quicksilver (4:10)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

Sometimes your mind makes twists and turns
Dreams up something out of this world
Relieves you of dull sanity
Every once in a while you dream
Or simply forget what is real
And it enables you to flee

Hell or high water
Say hi to mother Earth and father sky

Behold, I just dethroned the laws of gravity
In this place where
My machine is fuelled by quicksilver
It's cold in here, radio is silent for me
Quicksilver ghost
Take me to the world I love the most

Those who are weightless don't need wings
No cosmic gales or solar winds
The world is dark but mind is free
It's you who gets her off the ground
Co-pilot is nowhere to be found
Go find a place beyond belief
10. A Walk On A Broken Road (5:11)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Jarmo Myllyvirta & Tero Vaaja]

It feels like yesterday
When I was told a little tale
About a broken road
A tale of fortune and of fame

There was a time
When a man couldn't find his kind
There was a rhyme
Which made a man make up his mind

In those lines I heard you say
Fare well on your way
There every root and stone and wishing well
Has a tale to tell

The air that I breathe
Is made of dreams and memories
Of past and future days
And countless new pathways

When I look behind
I see my footprints on the road
Those remind of the time
When your haven always welcomed me

In those lines I heard you say
Fare well on your way
And when the broken road turns home again
There's a tale to tell
11. Foreversong (4:05)
[Music: Jarmo Myllyvirta, Lyrics: Tero Vaaja]

You're not strong on modesty
Or sanity
My favorite enemy
I found your head in clouds
Ten miles from the ground
Quite frequently

If you were here now
I would have to say
I don't think I know you
Like I did one day

Song that goes on forever
The song we compose together

So many times before
I closed this door
To come back nevermore
See, stars can't leave the show
You never know
What the future has in store

Song that goes on forever
The song we compose together
The ghosts of long gone bad days
They will return as always
Tormenting us everywhere

If you were here now
I would have to say
I don't think I know you
Like I did one day
False close and refrain
Our way of life stands
I don't have more to give
No wonders in my hands
