Sounds of a Playground Fading Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Mefisto
1. Sounds of a Playground Fading (4:43)
You can find all you need
The message is in the silence
Whisper words to calm your mind
Reach inside
Numb the pain
Come around with answers

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?
Sounds of a playground fading

Staring into bright lights
I am what I've done
It is useless to hide
An empty chamber
Guess I was part of a plan

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?
Sounds of a playground fading

We're running out of time
Can't seem to recognize
What put us here in the first place
Counting down the days
beginning of the end

We are ghosts of the concrete world
Genetic codes of a dying breed
Will I be left behind?...
2. Deliver Us (3:30)
Remind me I'm golden,
The fortress above the sun

Why don't you spend nowhere with me
Follow the river and the path of the ones
Write our names on the shore
Forever - I can't find
Struggling in a world undefined
Decide how you want it to be
I'm not eternity

Fly into the distant
Disappear for awhile
I can't make sense of this
But we're here today,
Feeling alive

It starts to fall apart
Let me take control
Reminisce
The days and nothing more
Something I will find again
Deliver us

Can't hear the words you say
But it doesn't really matter
I give the world to you
If you just...
3. All For Me (4:31)
Until the world seizes to move!
That burning feeling, let me go
This is real!
Always one more thing!
I clench my hands and bang my head!
Take whatever comes to you,
All the while I don't need another friend

I burn when I do the things I do for you.
Forever, the night, it's all for me now.
I'm sure that one day
I can get you... all that you lost.

I never told, blessed is the sick in me, I'm dying alone.
We stand to fight for nothing
Without a thought, without a reason...
It will never be okay

A growing pain,
It is hard to say what brought the darkest burden.
For some of us there is no answer.

Chains are breaking,
won't let this build up inside me.
There's a storm coming.
But I'll serve no more
Till my heavy last breath!
4. The Puzzle (4:34)
And I tried to think, tried to paint the picture.
I lived it all, wouldn't have to feel this way.

Looking for something to believe in,
I think I've done my time.

One by one the pieces fall,
Tell me what it is to believe.

You can tell days by their faces
There are always signs...
Answers to the puzzle,
Grab a piece of the light.

Keep pretending, I can handle everything,
You'll never understand me.
And I don't care what you think,
Or maybe I do?
5. Fear Is the Weakness (4:03)
At least you could have tried
It is way past time and we're scattering ashes
You take everything in sight, please hear me now
You, you are leaving me, with scars

Fear is the weakness in all of us
It's sad to see you go
It's not meant to be easy but you drag us down
Burning of the evidence grows

The same road for far too long
It's not meant to be
We are losing identity
Faith has been denied
Let's not pretend
This is the first time we just don't belong (here)

What world would you perceive?
All turnn cold, no one cares for anyone
Waiting for the final blow
Do you have strength at all?
One more day, then we fade away

Fear is the weakness in all of us
It's sad to see you go
It's not meant to be easy but you drag us down
Burning of the evidence groans

The same road for far too long
It's not meant to be
We are losing identity
Faith has been denied
Let's not pretend
This is the first time we just don't belong here
6. Where the Dead Ships Dwell (4:27)
Big picture slowely fades,
Walls are closing in,
And there I was, cursing the ground,
Unable to understand

I won't let the world break me
So I need to change direction
Nothing special and far from perfect
Light the way for me

I won't say I'm sorry, I got what I deserve
Feel I was running an endless mile,
Last candle burns
And I'm dying inside
All of this will turn to ash
A chance for a peace of mind

Walking where the dead ships dwell
These are shores I left behind
Streets were getting smaller
And I had to leave

All I hear is noise
Heart of false hpe
Guess I took it all for granted
I know I went too far
7. The Attic (3:16)
There's someone in the attic
Building a strange machine
Never really seen him
But I think he works all day
Blinded by the world outside,
I stay inside
Hardly know my name
But it's getting better by time

I saw something in the mirror
Someone's watching me
If I hide in the attic
They will never get to me
Found some rope on the floor
I have to build a trap
So I start on my machine
I am never to be seen
8. Darker Times (3:25)
September's here again
Every insecurity reminds you
Who's at the helm?
Darker times
With fear in the eyes
Who's the man in charge?

Invented isolation
Alone and safe inside
Struggle with words,
That make sense in time
Yet waiting for someone to enter
Say "I have a better plan"

Never have to worry
For all that we know
The truth be told
As we lay down low
Walking the thin line
Let the happiness in
For now it's fine
We're living the lie

When light breaks
Another way to matter
All questions somehow answered
When life comes crushing
At the early break of day
We've only come so far
9. Ropes (3:42)
How much can we take before we care to settle?
Thought we were set for a perfect scene
Everyone is waiting for a failure
Something that can please and justify
A void within our lives

Everyone is waiting for something they cannot have
Why don't you drop your guard
I'm on my knees for you
You got the mindset of a killer
And it will not take you far
If I had the answer would that make you stay?
This is the time and place
it is your moment of fate

If this would be your last breath
Would that change a thing?
Dive head first into the fire

If you just let me, I will find a way
To ease your mind and for you to stay
And I will untie all the ropes
It's hard for me but believe me, I'm trying

What are you longing for?
If I had the answer
Would that make you stay
This is the time and place
You are waiting for something you can't have
10. Enter Tragedy (3:58)
Twisting tongue,
Fallen off the edge again.

Need some space.
Need disgrace.
I'm confused
I'm in a maze

I need for you to pick me up when I fall down.
There is so much more, we can go far
But I can't control my selfish ways.

Enter Tragedy
Slash my soul!

Why is it part of the plan?
Do you question me?
I question you!

Who's the man in front of me?
I'm blindfolded, I can't see
Need a reason, I'm left empty

There's got to be something out there
This inner apathy brings me to life
I know it's strange and it's draining me

I'm tired, I'm fed up, I'm a slave
11. Jester's Door (2:37)
I say goodbye to you all at once -
(I) don't dare to face you all alone.
I went from wreckage to world class
With a box of t-shirts and some records to sell,
But times have changed - I have to defend my actions.
The foundation crumbles and I have to leave.
Thanks for everything - I couldn't ask for more...
I say I love you all... as I vanish through the Jester's Door
12. A New Dawn (5:53)
I dreamed that you've died
I'm forever alone
I'm weakened and I'm frightened
This brings about the change
Things you said to me
Believe and the things you might find
Will turn into a march

I stand alone and breathe again
I won't stop until this is through

And I can't wait to see the sun rise again
It's moments like this
I am what you'll never be
To better what I am
You won't hear lies from me

Feel a sudden haze
Time to get moving
Getting somewhere with no directions
I swear to you
it will never be the same
It's not straight
but the road lies open
Leaving all tears behind


Erase darkness from my mind
Last remaining night
From here to everywhere
13. Liberation (5:12)
I know what it takes to break you
You know I never sleep

Just because you made them think
Doesn't mean the world will fall into place

Took some time but now you know
Tomorrow is too late

Close your eyes
Walk with me
I set you free
And everything you ask for

I found the way
And I'll return here soon
I have to see those who do not know
Rest in peace
I'm coming for you
And I will be
I will be with you tonight

If today was your last day
Would that change a thing?

You probably believe what you told them
Live each moment like your last
