Masquerade Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Silent Inferno (3:36)
Atop the hill, facing the nightfall
Birds of ill omen are sending me scorn
My heart has stopped aching
Like a skull in a coffin my soul is resting within
Unborn ...

In his kingdom of thorns I am one with his horns
Run, baby, run - I am Satans son
For me all love is dead
And the tears that I shed ...
Wasted seeds of despair I no longer care

Insane misanthropy is striking my mind
Malicious contempt for all mankind
Murder and suffering I evoke
Gory like a berserk and as steady as an oak

I walk my path in silence
Crossing pain and violence
Beholding you without a sound
Man, a tool of evil unbound
2. Doomsday Celebration (2:55)
3. Alive and Immortal? (6:14)
Ten times a thousand years ago
The gods from the stars came below
Completed the creation of man
The time of progress began

Superior knowledge familiar to us
Is regaining power from Sirius or Mars

Once, when the 12th planet crashed with the earth
A great flood drowned human wisdom and mirth

Only few survived the tragedy
All remains where dragged across the sea

Encoded in all fairy-tales and myths
The heritage of the ancient ones still lives

Tomorrow's dreams are memories from the past
The cosmic principles will everlast
But mystified fragments won't turn the page
Distorted echoes from the age of Atlantis

Ignorance is all I can see
Dumbness our true entity
Time is not ripe for enlightenment
We can't use the key in our hand
4. Where Dragons Reign (4:20)
There is a pot of gold unveiled at the rainbow's end
If you keep fighting on you'll find the promised land
He who is strong in mind and has the will to run free
Beyond horizons he might glance as servant of fantasy

Hold my hand and realize that you are the one
Feel the power, the quest has just begun

Show me the way to where dragons reign
The forest of myths behind the sea
Beyond this rainy day sunlight will guide
And dreamwings will carry me

On the path of glory the proud and strong will never fall
So take your stand and hear the wizard's call
5. Masquerade (6:43)
I can't stand that hypnotizing masquerade that is draining me
Synchronizing brains and feelings
Paralyzing fantasy

Where is the sense behind this illusion?
Slaves to machines can't stop the confusion

My eyes are blent
They won't repent ursurping the dominion of my mind
Truth mixed with lies, fools' paradise
Drifting through their maze of hollow worlds

This is the final tragedy
The revelation in front of me
Now I can see the link to where worlds are born
There is no truth after all
It is on you...
Master or slave...

Masquerade is no disguise
There are no gods in empty skies
Man creates what man's world is
No one is there for my release
6. Enthralled by Unknown Dimensions (4:07)
Like Phoenix rising from the Ashes of despair
I burned the bridges behind me
No more compulsions to declare
Why I always left the way fate paved for me
To my dark dreams
Subreality trespassed?

Enthralled by unknown dimensions
Entwined in cryptic cocoon
Follow me to a new paradigm
For the end is coming so soon

Tenebrae mortis
Itio sortis
Amentia vitae
Matronarum terrae

The beast's grotesque face
My inner divine whore
Turned rigid like Medusa's eyes
Stone-cold apathetic gore
7. Unborn Again (5:17)
Deep inside I wonder why
There is a secret called I
A silent voice that makes me suffering
And forms reality

Why am I and not forever unborn?
Body and mind...
Between the worlds they are torn

What does not kill you makes you stronger
But will I be strong enough to kill myself?
Full of longing for the end to come
No more suffering from the wounds of time

When I was born and did not know
Of black and white nor where to go
No self was the burden of my mind
My body left the world behind

Imagination - truth formed by visions
Alienation - misled decisions

Unborn again...
Beginning to end...

He who left the self behind
Ascends to higher spheres of mind
Individuality released into entirety
8. A Memory's Reflection (1:04)
9. Sic Transit Gloria Mundi (6:27)
Are all those frightening colours real
And not just fantasy?
Is this the day of my good-bye?
Illusions in my head reflecting painful memory
A message from a hostile sky

I walked alone in the darkest night
The cold bleak stars a lonely light
Countless lifetimes I was looking for
The way that leads me to the open door

My misery is dust in your wind
Behind reality where fate is spinned
Your presence is fathomless grey
Reaping your harvest like a beast of prey

In pain I have surrendered the fight
With tears I crawled in the horrible night
My bleeding world is timelessly vain
Your void inside leads a macabre reign

God has been lieing
Cause now as I'm dying
The chorus of angels is fading away
The end of my story is not filled with glory
Alone in the dark I am banished to stay

Banished to stay...
10. Angel (6:15)
In the silence of heaven's pride
The gates of love where opened wide
Darkness in harmony with light
Day just the shadow of night

Beautiful face in deadly embrace
Fallen from grace...

You are my dark star from dimensions afar
Dusk and dawn you merge
Waters are deep where lost feelings sleep
You are the end of my search

You are my angel...

The tide it did turn
Every angel must burn in the wake of enlightenment
When divinity dies see another one rise
To set our yearning souls free

Fallen kings...
Shadows wandering in the night
Holy fires burning bright
Broken wings...
Evil conquered paradise
Angels getting hypnotized
