Soul Survivor Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Freedom (4:32)
I tried to live six years ago
When this story started
The sun, it told me where to go
Open minded, open hearted

Freedom was my vision
Every breath a dream
A million years ahead
All is what it seems
Freedom was my vision
Every breath a dream

Or are you taken by surprise
Covering your sleepy eyes
The mocking bird won't sing for you
What ever happened
To these friends I knew

These friends I knew
Or was it just a dream
But dreams are for real
Life is how you feel

Freedom is my vision
Every breath a dream
A million dreams ahead
And they're all for real
Freedom is my vision
Every breath a dream

Breathe on!
2. Fourty Shades (4:170
I'm on top of the world
And I see
The pain from a thousand generations to be
Like lambs to the slaughter
Never free
Echoes of fear swirling around me

I'm on top of the world
And I see
The souls from the millions
That will never be free
Caged in their bodies
Down on their knees
Black clouds of fear swirling around me

Suffer forty shades of red
Suffer forty shades of black
Suffer forty shades of red
Suffer forty shades of black

Crawl
try to walk
Speak
free your mind
Breathe
and you will find peace of mind
free your mind

Suffer forty shades of red
Suffer forty shades of black
Suffer forty shades of red
Suffer forty shades of black
3. River (4:35)
Clouds are covering the sky
Whis will be my last goodbye
Broken man in a broken land
Time has come to make amends

In this life now filled with darkness
I struggle on, seems so useless
And I hunger for the sun

The river flows on
As life flows on
Finding it's way
Leading me there where I will stay

Now fear is getting hold of me
Thinking of my destiny
The great unknown, as never seen
Places where I've never been

Still my life is filled with darkness
But I see a light, it makes me fearless
As I breathe and make the jump

The river flows on
As life flows on
Finding it's way
Leading me there where I will stay
4. Electric Poet (4:21)
I am driving on the left lane
On the highway through my head
For fame I gave my soul away
And never felt so glad

Electric poet in me
I am not afraid of words
Come and take me
Electric, electric poet in me

I got the gift to play with words
In writing, spoken too
A great magician I became
So now I'm tricking you

Electric poet in you
Are you afraid of words
Let me take you
Electric poet, electric poet in you
5. Soul Survivor (4:30)
A poor man who lost his soul
A servant without a goal
A breed made to live the day
Nirvana fade away
The passion for a chosen life
The purpose of the dream
A dead man but still alive
No heart in a machine

These days, strange days
The heart and soul, where is the fire?
These days, strange days
And I am feeling like a soul survivor

A poor man who lost his sun
His love for life to carry on
The wind will take him where it blows
Nirvana never shows
The hunger for a higher life
A full creative mind
Is now a long forgotten dream
Self-chosen to be blind

These days, strange days
The heart and soul, where is the fire?
These days, strange days
And I am feeling like a soul survivor

So confused
6. Blood Is Thick (3:43)
When the mind is blank
When all has been said
Never look back, always ahead

When the book's been read
Have no regrets
Never walk back, always ahead

My blood is thick, your words thin
Spread from a beggar's mind
My blood is thick, no regrets
'bout what I leave behind

And time is all I can lose, now time to choose
I choose my time
I feed off the hand that is mine
Nothing to lose
Only time

The mind is tired, beaten numb
By the stench from a beggar's mind
My blood is thick, beat yourself
I won't stay behind

And time is all I can lose, now time to choose
I choose my time
I feed off the hand that is mine
Nothing to lose
Only time

My blood is thick, your words are thin
My blood is thick, your words are thin
7. Dog Day (2:54)
Time of confusion
Tomorrow, the unknown
A day still unborn
A face yet not shown

But I am going for the ride
With the rats I won't stay
While you hide and fear the sun
I kiss boredom away

Heading for a dog day
Just like today

Time of confusion
The death of us all
With a faith in fear
You're awaiting the fall

But I want to challenge fate
With the rats I won't stay
While I laugh in the face of death
I kiss boredom away
8. Demon Seed (3:47)
I am the demon seed
The one solution for your breed
The limbs of the crippled
The minds of the mad
So foot on the feeble
So heavenly sad

Behind your eyes sleeps a life
Behind your eyes sleeps a life

I am the demon seed
I make you swallow all your greed
The speech of the serpent
The hands of the thief
The fool who is king
A misruler's grief

Behind your eyes sleeps a life
Behind your eyes sleeps a life
And I can make it come alive

I am the demon seed
Behind your weary eyes I sleep
I control your mind
I control your hand
Future dictator
Now you understand

I sleep behind your eyes
I sleep behind your eyes
I will live your life
I breed behind your eyes
9. Chameleon (2:46)
I never saw you arrive
Although you're always around
Making your day
Close to the ground
Around with the pigs
Feeding on what's left behind

Adapt your colours to my mind
Chameleon
Fooling all those who are blind
Chameleon
Adapt your colours

I never saw you leave that day
Fed on what was thrown away
A one eyed king
Leading to be blind
Ruler of pigs
Until nothing is left to find

Adapt your colours to my mind
Chameleon
Fooling all those who are blind
Chameleon
Adapt your colours
10. Dragon Man (9:14)
Your night is eternal
Dawn is never to be seen
Hide in isolation
Chase the dragon in your dream
A willing slave to darkness
A pleasure sacrifice
Kneel and beg the master
To look the dragon into the eyes

Hollow man dragon man

The fire inside is raging
Lurking in your heart
Burning up your life
Pain becomes your part
Cold hands that embrace you
A pleasure sacrifice
It's a half man who is begging
To look the dragon into the eyes

Hollow man dragon man

Once started as the hunter
You soon became the prey
You cannot understand
As your vision fades away
But the hunger is still raging
To feed it is your strife
Chase the dragon for the last time
Your final act in life
