Aquarius Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. The Point of No Return (11:27)
Until the ice has melted
into tears of pain or fear,
pure anticipation.
In hope we are, patient for a cry.

A child is born tonight
and love has come to life.

Listen to her heartbeat, the sound of life,
an angel's song, pure anticipation.
In hope we are, patient for a cry.

A child is born tonight
and love has come to life.

Living in this nightmare,
falling further to his knees.
The purest disappointment.
In hope we're not patient for a lie.

A child was born tonight
at the point of no return.

We can't raise this child,
this precious circus freak
with fins for arms
and a tail where legs would be.

There's no turning back:
our decision is made.
If we don't let her go,
we cannot love her as our own.

"The water is thicker than blood
and we can't look her in the eyes.
Release her to the stream!"

At the point of no return,
the point of no return.

Let me go, I don't belong here.
I'll be free, I won't return home.

It's no wonder that she's out there all alone.
It's no wonder that she is soaked to the bone.
It's no wonder water is thicker than blood.
Wonder if the storm will come for us?

She'll find a way to the point of no return.
She's on her way past the point of no return.
2. Streams (10:14)
[STREAMS]

Oooh, now that I am free,
swimming with the many fishes of the stream.
Yeah, and I am welcome here,
we all just connected swimmingly.

Streams of life digress
like water running through my veins.

I'm learning how to breathe,
living underwater,
I am deeper than the eye can see.
Yeah, it was meant to be,
now I'm flowing with the current of the stream.

Streams of life digress
like water running through my veins.
Running through my veins
Running through my veins.

I start my life again,
just as well this ain't the first stream I have swam.
Cold water rushing to my brain
is thicker than the blood that's flowing through my veins

Streams of life digress
like water running through my veins.
Streams of blood like liquid love
is rushing to my brain.

[VEINS]

It suddenly hits me in the heat of the sun,
a product of fear, far from human.
It suddenly hits me and crushes my world
like a tidal wave trapped in my shell.

It suddenly hits me, what have I become?
Searching for answers in my aquarium.
It suddenly bites me and poisons my veins,
lost and unable to find my way.

[DIGRESSION]

My chosen path, the direction that I take
is the consequence of your greatest mistake.

When that day arrives, it's decision time.
Which way will I turn?
Will I ever really learn?

If I'm shown the way, I will never be alone.
The choice is mine in deciding where I'll go.

All our souls digressed, we started as one.
All our journeys will end at the same destination.

Streams of life digress
like water running through my veins.
Streams of blood like liquid love
is rushing to my brain.
3. Aquarium (10:40)
Just another day sitting by the river
as February fades.
I was fishing for my dinner
when something caught my eye
in my peripheral vision.
Have I lost my mind
if I believe in what I'm seeing?

Eyes from around the world
stare through the glass
of my aquarium.
Line up to see the girl,
blessed by the curse
of the aquarius.

Freak of nature, pay to see her
Eyes surround her like a fever.
Free me master, see me shiver,
put me back into the river.

I won't tell a soul,
but I could make a fortune,
all those empty years of staring into my reflection.
I could bide my time, but I can't keep a secret:
she's the great discovery of the 22nd century.

Eyes from around the world
stare through the glass
of my aquarium.
Line up to see the girl,
blessed by the curse
of the aquarius.

Fortune and fame,
she's the freak of the day.
Only you made a name for yourself,
then fell in love.

After all that he's done
to her plan that is destined to fail.

Oooh, they hit it right off.
(She freaked you out)
Eyes from around the world
stare through the glass
of my aquarium.
I've seen the girl
blessed by the curse
of the aquarius.

Freak of nature, pay to see her
Eyes surround her like a fever.
Free me master, see me shiver,
put me back into the river.
Eyes surround me like a prison,
heart is beating, you have listened.
Free me master, see me shiver,
put me back into the river.
4. Eternal Rain (6:43)
Suddenly I realize
every hero pays the price,
and with no hesitation
I give her the kiss of life.

Dry land, don't cry on me,
how could I know?
The sky forgives no one
and the worst has yet to come.

Soaking right down to the bone
in your eternal rain,
I give in to temptation.
She was never meant to be saved.

Dry land, don't cry on me,
how could I know?
The sky forgives no one
and the worst has yet to come.

Dry land, don't cry on me,
how could I know?
The sky forgives no one
and the worst has yet to come.
5. Drowning In the Flood (9:28)
Calling S.O.S in deep despair.
Please, teach me
how the hell do I breathe down there?
Waves crash on me, I can't hold my breath,
there's no coming up for a gasp of air.

And as the tears fall on us now,
the chances are that I will drown.
I've sacrificed all that I love and care about
drowning in the flood.

Speak or forever hold your face,
mourning in the sunken city weeps.
Steal my thunder in your tempest hail,
we'll surrender when the levee fails.

Human corpses floating side by side,
washed up with the distant moonlit tide.
Only she can save our sorry souls,
priceless freedom coming at a heavy cost.

But I can't turn back hands of time,
she knows her purpose is to die.
I've sacrificed all that I love and care about,
I'm drowning in the flood.

I'm sorry, I'm sad with a sense of regret.
It fills my lungs.
It's not too late to suffocate.
The price I will pay for what I've done...

We are trapped under the sea,
but we made this ocean in one day.
It takes my breath away.

We were drowning, she was free,
now she's gone forever.
I will pay, she takes my breath away.

Will we live to tell the tale?
Is it worth the price we paid?
Are we praying for the sun,
or are we drowning in the flood?
6. Sun (7:19)
Without a reason left to live,
lonely air I breathe.
And as she takes her final breath,
yesterday becomes a memory
as I am learning to let go of the dead.

"Goodbye" she cries
as she slowly disappears into light.
She vaporized peacefully.

The silence resonates beyond
now that she is gone.
Wish I could turn back hands of time
and die to save a thousand lives.

With fear in your eyes, the time has come,
reveal the sun you hide.
Tears melt the ice, the time has come
when death and love collide.

My savior, I wait for her to return.
Forgive me, I killed you to save us all.

One final look into her eyes,
I watched her vaporize,
merging with the light.

With fear in your eyes, the time has come,
reveal the sun you hide.
Dry tears of mine, the time has come
when death and love collide.
7. Celestial Elixir (16:56)
Oh, I still hear the angels' song
whispered by a child that once belonged.
With tears of joy so white,
the colour of a restless night,
more than a faint memory can provide.
If years go by,
fear and pain will sustain in your eyes.

She may never return, but I can wait forever.
If we can't make amends,
I'll chase your rainbow till the end...

Find us a cure for your disease,
spare us your ancient remedy.
If this is all I ever ask,
emptiness is all I ever had.

Our lives are scarred from deep within,
scales grow all over our skin.
A miracle is all I'll ever need
to cure them all,
holding onto my amphibian dream.

She may never return, but I can wait forever.
If we can't make amends,
I'll chase your rainbow till the end...

Find us a cure for your disease,
spare us your ancient remedy.
If this is all I ever ask,
emptiness is all I ever had.

The calm that comes after the storm,
the tide that never reaches the shore.
So heavenly your remedy.
When love prevails,
swallowing the blood of enemies.

She may never return, but I will wait forever.
If we cannot make amends,
I'll chase your rainbow till the end...

Streams of light unite with water
running through our veins.
Streams of blood like liquid,
love is running through our veins...
