9 Elements of Inner Vision Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Elements (6:26)
2. Two Souls Apart (5:34)
Although you think I'm safe, I'm only killing time
I'm slipping through the hourglass, destroying all that is mine
A mind too tired to awaken, a soul too tired to feel

Paintings of portraits
And portraits of sanctums
Where I can seek refuge and shelter for me
Twisted emotions and self abused mind frames
And I find myself searching through this primitive land

As the daylight disappears, and the full moon takes its place
I am by myself or so it seems
Half asleep or half in a dream
Watching shadows take their shape

Paintings of portraits
And portraits of sanctums
Where I can seek refuge and shelter for me
Twisted emotions and self abused mind frames
And I find myself searching through this primitive land

Beyond dark mountains, a pensive thought he spares
You never turned away from me, until the end
He's at the window waiting, the rising sun
Shines on he's sorrow
3. Illumination Fades (5:12)
Months of the northern winter
Darkest mountains mask the sun
I hear a storm approaching
Blackest clouds and howling winds
Echoes across the sky
I'm safe within my fortress, locked from within
No sympathy for the weak, confide in yourself
Accompanied, shadowed by power

Journey to my kingdom
Destined to remain a soul of the old world

I glimpse into the past and stare into what once was
But may never be again
And receiving only time to search all paths
And roam the land

Journey to my kingdom
Destined to remain a soul of the old world
Journey to my kingdom
Destined to remain a soul of the old world
4. Where Clouds Divide (5:17)
She sits and stares at her reflection
With vacant eyes and a tireless smile
Slowly fading out of our existence
She hears a voice from a sound inside

A flash of light, and you say goodnight
You tasted the poison that is of this life
The winds cry through the forest, calling out to you
But you're lack of comprehension has me totally confused
So now you are transcending, an image of you
There's a river that's crying, a dark shade of blue

Open eyes, see what's yet to come
Tired eyes reflect on what has gone
And you chase you're tail, in an endless maze
Where the storm clouds divide, to relieve the pain

A flash of light, and you say goodnight
You tasted the poison that is of this life
The winds cry through the forest, calling out to you
But you're lack of comprehension has me totally confused
So now you are transcending, an image of you
There's a river that's crying, a dark shade of blue

And now you search yourself
For what you seek to find
And when you're eyes are finally open
You see you have no place to hide

I sit in the hallway, my head in my hands
And a vision of her that I can't understand
Why would she do this, where has she gone
Should I go with her, or go on alone

The winds cry through the forest, calling out to you
But you're lack of comprehension has me totally confused
So now you are transcending, an image of you
There's a river that's crying, a dark shade of blue
5. Dawn (A New Beginning) (6:02)
There comes a time to close your eyes, to what is real
When the passage beyond unveils, a path to the surreal

Welcome to my fortress tall
Nobody gets inside of these four walls
That's where you'll find me, that's where I'll be
No need to worry, I'm deep within side of me
You say that I've got all this room
And that's how I'll spend my time till I break

Reaching out for shadows, but the ILLUMINATION FADES
Waking up to portraits of another time and place
Something else is waiting, it lingers in the dark
Feeling out from everywhere, my mind and dreams are numb

An itching feeling under the skin
It leaves me blind and paralyzed
Can you see it, can you see how far I've gone

ILLUMINATION FADES
See how far I've gone
ILLUMINATION FADES

I scratch the surface, and tear the skin
But nothing exists or dares to leave
Deja vu written in my own blood
I exist in a slipstream in my own mind
When memories and thoughts collide
A shallow feeling deep inside
It kills me, it drives me insane...!

Abandoned baby left alone
Unhappy and restless, I make death my home
Through sleepless plains dividing my mind

Reaching out for shadows, but the ILLUMINATION FADES
Waking up to portraits , of another time and place
Something else is waiting, it lingers in the dark
Feeling out from everywhere, my mind and dreams are numb

ILLUMINATION FADES
See how far I've gone
ILLUMINATION FADES
6. While The World Sleeps Pt. 1 - Dreams (5:25)
He awakens from a dream to a cold and lonely room
Sending shivers down his spine memories rush into his mind
His eyes have seen such madness the torment of silent tears
And everywhere he turns and looks their way
Images from the past they make his life a misery
Till you wish yourself away
Surrounded in the dreamscape, underneath the bluest skies
The purist of emotions, are streaming into your blackened mind
He heads of to a place where he once dreamed

Searching for something he can't quite reach
Searching for something where he once dreamed
Searching for something where he once dreamed

Looking through your eyes I see the bearing of your soul
A place reserved entirely for you
Use your illusion and let it take you, to the visions of what you seek
The wind is knocking at the door, flames are low, the fires burning out
He hears the voices, coming in the distance, and waits for them to come

He heads of to a place where he once dreamed
Searching for something where he once dreamed
Searching for something where he once dreamed

Surrounded in your blackened mind
Underneath the bluest skies
The purist of emotions
Are screaming into your blackened mind
Surrounded in the dreamscape
Underneath the bluest skies
The purist of emotions
Are screaming into your blackened mind
Into your blackened mind
7. While The World Sleeps Pt. 2 - Altered Visions (1:46)
8. The Script Of Sorrowed Tales (6:02)
A web of dreams out in haunted seas, and the picture reminds me of you
Behind a veil, the face of an angel, the object of beauty and truth
And all of my life I'll be haunted, just that one moment in time
I won't understand just what went through my mind, my mind.......

The crack of DAWN brings all new fears, for my blinded eyes to see
Digging in darkness and showing no fear, of the danger that lies up ahead
So many times said you'd only be mine, gave my blood sweat and tears,
So you can only see, so you can only see through my eyes....!

Then you slipped away, to another domain
Where no-one can reach you
Your locked safe inside

Drink now from my golden cup, I'll bring life into your sorrowed heart
Take my hand into the night we'll fly for DAWNS, the beginning of life
Silence reigns as the night grows cold, the master of illusion has taken my soul
He controls me like a puppet on strings...!

Then you slipped away to another domain
Where no-one can reach you
Your locked safe inside

Open your eyes
Don't leave me behind
I'm lost on the outside
Until I feel your pain
YOUR PAIN...!

Embrace your inner child
Open your eyes and your mind
Cherish this gift that is life
And I'll be by your side
Now you should be sleeping, but your eyes say your AWAKE !
Tell me what your dreaming of....
Tell me what your dreaming of....
Tell me what your dreaming of....

Then you slipped away to another domain
Where no-one can reach you
Your locked safe inside.
9. Vivid Window (4:09)
Breathing underwater, Living under glass
The world is turning faster, spinning everyday
Night will know my name, in endless circles chant
Never hear from me again, I bid my last farewell

Dream with me, drowning, in a sea of tears
Longing to be free
Dream with me, drowning, in a sea of tears
Farewell to you, and me

And what I leave behind, a script and nothing more
For countless days I've wandered, nothing left to see
My empty body stands, at rest my mind released
This path yet seems so strange, still I can't resist

I bare all that I am, not just a simple man
Options don't occur to me, when hanging by a thread

Dream with me, drowning, in a sea of tears
Longing to be free
Dream with me, drowning, in a sea of tears
Farewell to you, and me

I bare all that I am, not just a simple man
Options don't occur to me, when hanging by a thread

Dream with me, drowning, in a sea of tears
Longing to be free
Dream with me, drowning, in a sea of tears
Farewell to you, and me
10. Beyond The Twilight (7:27)
All alone left with memories
My mind casts a shadow of insanity
Helplessly I gaze
Helplessly I gaze
Into a time so far away
I reach for the light yet only
Darkness surrounds me
Darkness surrounds me

Beyond the twilight
Beyond the twilight

Even silence has a voice of it's own
Inside the subconscious of my mind
There lies a hidden truth
A device of horror
Free me from this misery
Guide me back from insanity
Darkness surrounds me
Darkness surrounds me

Beyond the twilight
Beyond the twilight I roam

Gazing at the stars at night, and deep into infinite skies
In a trance I fall, wondering
What fate lies beyond?

I greet the morning sun
With open hands I feel its warmth
Yet with this ray of light
Only darkness surrounds me
Silent crying without tears
Blinded by my own tranquility
Destiny's calling
Destiny's calling

Beyond the twilight
Beyond the twilight
Beyond the twilightI roam
