Splinters of Life Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. By the Gates of My Dreams (1:04)
[Instrumental]
2. All I Have (5:00)
Times are hard these days for a man to live his life
Pass each step and never look behind
Many dreams gone lost
no chance to spread your wings
Cause this world won't leave them be

Struggle through life
Fight for your rights
Don't ever change your mind
You must be the best
Don't take a rest 'til the day you die

Now all I ask
Leave me live life and get lost
All I need
Make my errors and be free
All I want
Be alone and I'll get along
All I have
Is this life I will never share

Just one night you sit there looking at the sky
Wonder why you never realised
All those dreams you had you left alone to die
They're the reason you're alive

So I won't stay
I'll run away
Build these old dreams again
This life is mine
And I am seeking it back tonight

Now all I ask
Leave me live life and get lost
All I need
Make my errors and be free
All I want
Be alone and I'll get along
All I have
Is this life I will never share

*******

Now all I ask
Leave me live life and get lost
All I need
Make my errors and be free
All I want
Be alone and I'll get along
All I have
Is this life I will never share
3. Time Can Answer (5:25)
I am the owner of my time on earth
The only master of my destiny
I'll decide of what will be

Fire of youth burns in my heart
Out of this jungle have to dig your space
'til tomorrow pay your place
.
What is wrong and what is right?
No one ever really taught us
What is good and what is bad?
I guess only time can answer that

*******

There is a park where I like to go
Hanging around 'til the stars will show
Sometimes I stay there and wait for a new day
To take away all the fears I hold inside
Make me feel alive
I do have a feeling that it's where
I'll find a meaning to my life

*******

Who's that woman? Who's that girl?
Shining beauty strikes me and it
Sends me shivers down my spine
I'm no more afraid of dying

Theodora, we are one:
Two lost souls in search for answers
Let us fool the hands of time
I won't wait for him to make you mine
4. Stars (3:50)
Walking slowly through the park
I should have known it from the start
That my love grows with every step

I see a whole world in her smile
See my future in her eyes
Still I would burn it out for her

My life makes sense when she's here around
I'd feel lost without her
When I'm sad she'll sink me in her sweet embrace

Time runs so fast
There's so many things that won't last
But our love will never die
'til the stars shine
There's one for every night
I heard them say we are two of a kind
5. A Void Within Me (4:45)
You walked away, the night blew off your traces
But scars you left they didn't go away
Long years gone by I still cannot take
It had to be this way
In my dreams we're still...

There in the wind
Hand in hand as we walked up the hill,
In the night I saw love shine so bright from your eyes
Tell me why nothing's right since you're gone
There's a void within me

Your heart was mine and we would last forever
That night you're gone, you've thrown it all away
You left my life so cold without light
A picture black and white
Because you stopped time...

Right there on the hill
As we watched falling stars in the wind
Hand in hand we would sit there and wait for the dawn
Now I know nothing will ever fill
You're the void within me

***

There on the hill
As we watched falling stars in the wind
Hand in hand we would sit there and wait for the dawn
Now I know nothing will ever fill
You're the void within me

This bloody void has swallowed me, it's over
I leave this game, I never should have played...
6. Splinters of Life (7:45)
There's no way out of this maze
I'm living for those days
I'm trapped in there
Compelled to play again
Those scenes when I could still call me man

I do have the power to play twice...

Madness
Searching deeper and deeper in those memories
I know all of my answers are here in me...

Knew this game was dangerous but could I ever know
Memories would come back to me just like an horror show
Someone wake me up and tell me that this isn't true
This ain't no more what I lived, what I knew

Help this nightmare seems so real
The picture becomes clear
A shadow in her eyes
That's how I realise
My love was all in vain
Creation of my brain
Illusions dug this void
My world destroyed

*****

Splinters of life hidden deep inside
Here in my mind they've been all the time
I've been so blind
Chasing stars in the sky
In the end I find
It was all a giant lie

*****

Hey, there must be some mistake
Where is my girl my angel?
This one here is different indeed
An evil creature with no love for me

I had never seen her be so drastic
Telling me I am hopeless and tragic
Always laughing at me
What the hell is this?!

Knew this game was dangerous but could I ever know
Memories would come back to me just like an horror show
Someone wake me up and tell me that this isn't true
This ain't no more what I lived, what I knew

Help this nightmare seems so real
The picture becomes clear
A shadow in her eyes
That's how I realise
My love was all in vain
Creation of my brain
Illusions dug this void
My world's destroyed ‘cause

Now I'm back there once again
Too late to understand
A flash runs through my eyes
That's how I realise
Theodora's never been
A monster's all I see
Illusions dug this void
My world destroyed.
7. Strange Illusion (3:44)
(I) thought I had found the reason
And I was faced to treason
Can there ever be some certainties?

Although my soul is bleeding
Now my eyes are seeing
That there ain't no point in nothing in the end

There is no truth, no lie, the only thing that's real is what you feel
Life in itself is nothing but a kind of strange illusion

****

All in all
In this endless fall
Had the chance to see
What's behind all this
Neither void

****

Just a second after
Something's gone forever
You won't ever catch it: don't look back!

If life begun from something
Can it end with nothing?
Guess there ain't no point in asking in the end

There is no truth, no lie, the only thing that's real is what you feel
Life in itself is nothing but a kind of strange illusion

There is no truth or lie when all that you can touch will vanish
Take all your fears away and make the best of this illusion
8. Outer World (1:58)
Back to what I'd forgotten
Back to outer world
So many words unspoken
Stories left untold

Behind the wall
Now unfold
All those things
That I had never seen
Even though
They've been here
All along

Back to what I'd forgotten
Back to outer world
Sun shines and I grow older
(I) Ask for nothing more
9. Back in the Nightmare (5:22)
Far too many times as life went by you thought it would be forever
Far too many lies they've built for you to make sure you feel better

When you feel so cool don't you believe you can keep off the fire
Don't you ever think the morning light can save you from your nightmare

So, never go playing with your soul
Never go searching for some more
Reasons to suffer from the past
Make sure He doesn't find you

I might well be crazy but who's got the right to tell?
Do you think your mind is sane because you're not afraid?

****

Oh no He's back, back for me!
I never will rest in peace
He often comes with the dusk
Sometimes He's blown by the sun

But even through my darkest street
Never He will take over me
You gave me strength and I'll stand 'til the end

****

Come and have a look at life through my own eyes you won't believe it
Come and take a trip inside this head of mine you'll taste some hell

Can you hear this voice I hear, it's telling me I might be evil
So alone since I was born, why can't I be like other people?

(Blind) Wish I could close that door inside
Trap Him forever to my pride
If only I could fight my demons
I'd give my life just for this day
10. Off with My Heart (7:42)
I wish I couldn't remember
The time when all was so bright
I don't believe there is another way I can live

Pain was the damn reward
For all the good I've done
My heart can love for real
Now hate is all he can feel

How could you fill my soul with my hate?
Is this what I deserved?
I'm sick and tired of fighting with myself
I want to end this hell

Time has come to fight for my life
I never thought I'd have to escape from myself one day
Still it's so hard not to think of what life could have been with her love
I beg someone please tear off this heart from me.

It's so easy when you think
To be human means to be weak

****

And as I cross the highway of life
Trying to find the answers inside my brainwashed mind
I know there's a long way to go
But someday I'll find my path back home

****

Run far away once again
Life's a game that we all have to play
Just as best as we can
Play this game today
And there's no right way

Time has come to fight for my life
I never thought I'd have to escape from myself one day
Still it's so hard not to think of what life could have been with her love
I beg someone please tear off this heart from me.
11. Flashback of Anger (7:13)
Lightning strikes the black sky
Wild screams in the night
I ride through the plains
Looking for you again
End is near
Time to pay back is here
You won't escape from my
Flashback of Anger
Destroy you forever

Now that your time has come I can see
What a strange dream is life meant to be
When you got nothing more to survive
I'll kill you tonight

What you took from me
I'll have it back from you
Now I'm here again
Nothing to fear my friend
Death strikes fast
Just a revenge for the past
Victim of mighty
Flashback of Anger
Your game is over

Now that your time has come I can see
What a strange dream is life meant to be
When you got nothing more to survive
I'll kill you tonight

Now that all is said and done
The enemy is gone
My hatred fades away
I'd live another day
If only you were here
To wipe away my tears
I'll see you in the sun
Revenge is done

****

Flashback of Anger
Flashback of Anger

Now that your time has come I can see
What a strange dream is life meant to be
You got nothing more to survive
I'll kill you tonight
