Telos Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Force Fed
Do you remember what it was like to feel alone?
Dragging me through hell at my weakest hour
Bury me alive and walk over my grave like I'm nothing
Like I'm nothing

Tell me, tell me how you really feel
Tell me all the things you've done because you were force fed
It's your choice to lose your state of mind
Your own free will (your own free will)

Force fed lies
Force fed failures
Force fed dreams that fall apart
Force fed lies
When I lose control of all I hold
Force fed failures
My life will slowly fade to black

And I finally realize
That I'm the one that can take control of myself (take control of myself)
I am the one that is in control
The world never stood a chance

And now I understand
This is all worthless!
This is all worthless!
Unworthy (unworthy)

Everything that you've asked me to be, I've lost
And now I'm running around in circles
Trying to find my own sense of discovery (of discovery)

I've been sleepless
Trying to wrap my mind around how I can be useful
I've been defiant because I know what's in store (know what's in store)

Force fed lies
Force fed failures
Force fed dreams that fall apart
Force fed lies
Force fed dreams with a new start
2. The Great Divide
Torn down and abandoned
This shell of a body fails me now
I've dipped my cup in the fountain of youth
A feeble attempt soon forgotten

All sense of reality has been removed
Now I crave for something more

Lost in the fabric of time between the dead and divine
How profound this state of life
I've given everything to taste the eternal (eternal)

Like a cancer it ate me alive
I've lost my sanity, my heart and my will to survive

I've fallen victim to the dark limits of time (of time)
Oh the irony, for I am the culprit
I am the victim, yet I am the culprit
I am the victim, and now I am the culprit

This is the great divide
I have created the fault line
This is the great divide
And I have created the fault line

My time has come, what have I done?
I've lived to account for these sins of old
My days are done, I'm calling out
But this voice, it fails me now

This is the great divide
I have created the fault line
This is the great divide
And I have created the fault line
3. Wormtongue
Bow to me, the cowardly
Crown me king of the vile

See how you've fallen so far
Pursuing foul endeavors to find who you are
And I know, you think that time will heal all
But you're falling faster, your throne is shaking

When was the last time that you stood for what you built?
When will you ever learn to face this fear?
You're screaming out for help
But I can't hear you, no I can't hear you now

Blind ambition, you only see the ones you want to blame
Don't turn your back away from the sky
Darkened intention, I won't stop until you see your lies

You walk the path of hypocrisy
Evil has crowned you king
And now, when it's all said and done
You will be made low
Cast to the depths of the sea

Deceitful tongue, I'm calling your bluff
They'll watch as I rip you out
Deceitful tongue, I'm calling your bluff
I'll bury your throne in the sand

This is the end of your reign, king of corruption (king of corruption)
This is the end of your reign, king of corruption (king of corruption)
And I won't settle for anything other than justice

This is your chance for redemption
To right the wrongs of affliction
This is your chance for redemption, your final call (final call)
This is your chance for redemption
To right the wrongs of affliction
This is your chance for redemption, your final call

Deceitful tongue, I'm calling your bluff
The world will know you're corrupt

See how you've fallen so far
Pursuing foul endeavors to find who you are
And I know, you think that time will heal all
But you're falling faster, your throne has collapsed
4. Transcendence
I never had to be anything
Until I saw myself in the mirror
At that point, what I saw was lost hope
And knew there was time for a change

This world will be forgotten
Just don't leave it empty now
This world will be forgotten
Just don't leave it empty now
Sometimes we paint these pictures, just to start all over

We realize where these colors take us
They're bleeding through the canvas
To reproduce our image into something more distinctive
Into something more distinctive
These thoughts grow into newfound efforts
And time never seems to be on our side (on our side)
Until we hang these art forms on the walls around us
And continue to be unsatisfied

And I don't wanna live like this again
I thought you said it would be so simple
And I can't continue to live like this
Because my own plans aren't so wishful
Because my own plans aren't so wishful

I dream and dream but never seem to be on page with my own visions (my own visions)
But I'll take the path where my Maker leads me
And strive to be a tool in His hands
5. Lackluster
I've returned to a city rebuilt
Only to watch it fall again
How entirely common is it for one to retreat?
Ignoring every sign from the depths of proof
You have truly seen miracles
But still question my existence every day

I've seen Your name be used to gather a profit
But what difference does it make between you and I? (Between you and I)

We've all sold God
For this half-hearted formula
Bearing what we want from this earth
Then coming back to You for answers in the end

When will our youth break through struggle?

I'm guilty yet forgiven
Oh how we take for granted the second chance
There is no point in taking yourself to a degrading level

We've all sold God
For this half-hearted formula
Bearing what we want from this earth
Then coming back to You for answers in the end
We've all sold God
For this half-hearted formula
Bearing what we want from this earth
Then coming back to You for answers in the end

I've returned to a city rebuilt
Only to watch it fall again
When will this cycle end?
When will this cycle end?
When will this cycle end?
6. State Of Gold
Death will hold nothing against us
Death will hold nothing against us

I see a revolution bound for freedom
Taking hold of what's rightfully theirs
The only path we see is forward
And our torches stay held high

Break down these walls
We have no problem becoming martyrs for our generation
Stand up and reach out
And realize that you're not alone
The walls around will crumble and sometimes you'll be slowed down
But you'll rise like a phoenix and the ones around will pull you out

I know we won't be shaken
This is the path we've taken

We will move forward
We know we're not alone
If they say it's not our virtue, then we prove them wrong
We will not run away because it's all we've known
They'll start losing their mind due to the fear of growth
They will see it in your eyes
They will see it in your actions
The passion in your life means more than all your past mistakes

Open the gates
Our youth will avenge this evil
Open the gates
And let your spirit free

I know we won't be shaken
This is the path we've taken
Can you receive the truth alone?

We will move forward
We know we're not alone
If they say it's not our virtue, then we prove them wrong
We will not run away because it's all we've known
They'll start losing their mind due to the fear of growth
They will see it in your eyes
They will see it in your actions
The passion in your life means more than all your past mistakes

Stand up and stand tall
And hold your torch high
See your future is written in the sky

I see a revolution bound for freedom
Taking hold of what's rightfully theirs
The only path we see is forward
And our torches stay held high
7. Bitter Years
A common outlook that's so misunderstood
Is you don't lose your faith in God by blaming Him for your anger
Behind humanity constantly failing (constantly failing)
You've lost all faith in yourself
And you can't continue to live like this for the rest of your time

Is this the life that you hoped for?
Is this the life that you made?
Burning every bridge with the ones you meet along the way

Death rests at the tip of your tongue
Your words spread like poison across the horizon
Death rests at the tip of your tongue
Your words spread like poison on their lives

You believe we're so easily misguided
Always bringing false hope
You break the silence when you find out who you are
Look at me, I need to know how you got this far

I wish you could see that desolation's not foreign to you
All your decisions have left you for dead
The crown of apathy rests on your head
And you've yet to be phased
The crown of apathy is burned on your soul

The only time you'll ever wonder where you went wrong (where you went wrong)
Is when your world falls apart on you
And you have nothing left to lose

You want to bring back the ones that you abused
These bitter years of this life you're living
They have nothing to prove

You breathe fire and ice while walking a thin line
Making it known you can't make up your mind
You breathe fire and ice while walking a thin line
Making it known you can't make up your mind
You breathe fire and ice while walking a thin line
Making it known you can't make up your mind
You breathe fire and ice while walking a thin line
Making it known you can't make up your mind...
8. Paper World
We fall apart, to get back up
We learn the rules to just get by, that's not enough
We fall apart, to get back up
We learn the rules to just get by, that's not enough
Born to be broken
Born to be broken

This is a human uproar
These are the plagues that contain our souls
We are so easily crumbled and shaped like a paper world

This is the point where I told myself I would never be
Your ideas tempt my mind with something that I never wanted

Even with these constant reminders
But the immoral overlays the benefits
What have they sold us?
What have they sold us here?

In a world where We thrive off hurt and confusion
It's been whispered in our minds that it's just a phase
That it's just a phase
We listen, we accept thinking it will pass
But this state of intertwining's overdue for its last
We listen, we accept thinking it will pass
But this state of intertwining's overdue for its last

I have discovered yet another analytical failure
And its agony flows through our veins

We have strayed from the disease that can take our system hostage
Never will I compare myself to the gold that you claim
Never will I settle in this grave that you call home

It's not enough, it's not enough, it's not enough
I won't settle any longer
This is the point when you suffer

We fall apart, to get back up
We learn the rules to just get by, that's not enough
We fall apart, to get back up
We learn the rules to just get by, that's not enough
9. The Wager
Eternity awaits me
And I know that we're all broken vessels
Trying to find our way in life
To the ends of the earth
I've searched high and low to no avail
My time was wasted

Why did I ever place my faith
In things that couldn't save me? (Couldn't save me)
Everything was all for nothing
Every breath I took in vain
Everything was all for nothing
Empty words that hold no weight

And now I understand (and now I understand)
That it was all in vain
Here I kneel before my Maker reaching for words
Reaching for words

Ears to hear and eyes to see
But never comprehending
Ears to hear and eyes to see
But never understanding

(Eternity awaits me
And I know that we're all broken vessels
Trying to find our way in life
Eternity awaits me)

Why did I ever place my faith
In things that couldn't save me? (Couldn't save me)
Everything was all for nothing
Every breath I took in vain
Everything was all for nothing
Empty words that hold no weight

Time stands still
I'm running out of breath
Everything around me breathes, except for me
10. Harbor Lights
How do we make up something so insincere?
This world is drawn near to all these falling patterns
They make our actions and voice we speak
But living in abandonment we shall not reap (shall not reap)
Who else is tired of decaying?
I haven't lived for far too long (far too long)
When my life starts to stand for nothing
Maybe I can explain it through a song

Can you help me find where this direction's heading?
Another path to take, another setting sun
Where are we leading each other?
Is it hope or disease?
Marked with self-righteous cowards afraid to be washed clean

Give me a sign, give me a reason to prosper
Give me what I thought I wanted until I completely fall apart here
Give me a sign, give me a reason to prosper
Give me what I thought I wanted until I completely fall apart here

Sometimes it's hard to hold my tongue when all I see around are wolves
Devouring every step forward that I make

I need to bring myself to safety
I need to find my way back home

If only I could dine with the pigs
When did the swine become something so tasteful?
I scream so loud, but nothing seems to make its way out

I'm on my way home, covered in filth
But that's the way they'll take me
Oh that's the way they'll take me

Take me so I can know your plan
Collect all my fears in the palm of your hand
Oh brother, why are you so concerned with what's right? (What's right)
I've turned away from the past
And I don't plan to be a light (to be a light)
Because I want to be something brighter
And more prone to ignite (more prone to ignite)
Because I want to be fire and cause the world to ignite
I want to be fire
