Reigning Memories Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Awakening (0:54)
2. Another Life (6:00)
Think back to the life you have lived
You see yourself in another face
You seek an answer to your life
What is this nightmare inside myself?
Tracing the memories from your dreams
Why have these changes occured in me?
There is a burning question I seek
I realize now something is not right

Set me free
Let me live
I'm not afraid
To face my fears
Release me, forgive me
I'm learning to live all over again

Reaching back into my life
Grabbing at a memory
Help me to find what's in myself
In this maze of confusion
Please help me in this other life
To find my cure to make it right
No one believes in my memory
No one feels the pain I live

Set me free
Let me live
I'm not afraid
To face my fears
Release me, forgive me
I'm learning to live all over again

Show me the way to go home
To the horrors inside of me
I fear just what I might find
I won't let this be the end of me
I travel back to face my demons
To undo what damage I have done
To end the pain my life has caused
I pray to God for his help
To show me how to live again

Set me free
Let me live
I'm not afraid
To face my fears
Release me, forgive me
I'm learning to live all over again
Again
3. Spiral Maze (5:46)
Why does the rain fall
When the sky is filled with sun?
Why do we run and hide
When our smiles become undone?
Where are the answers
To the questions beyond our sight?
Running in circles
Chasing the golden light

Alone in a dreamscape
Beyond disillusion
Paging through chapters
Of a book called confusion
Watching in wonder
As the day fades to black
Open your eyes
To see the vision coming back

Twisting and turning
Spinning around inside
Life is an endless maze
Spiraling in our mind
Forever revealing
The strength of our own device
Cracking the spiral maze
Finding the guiding light

Where do we go from here?
What does the pain reveal?
Who is the one to blame?
Should it really matter?
Revealing the inner child
Caught in a tangled web
Grasping for solitude
Leaving the past behind you

Twisting and turning
Spinning around inside
Life is an endless maze
Spiraling in our mind
Forever revealing
The strength of our own device
Cracking the spiral maze
Finding the guiding light

Lie to me, hide from me
You can't see inside of me
Walking on broken glass
Chasing the memories
Free me from the pain

Twisting and turning
Spinning around inside
Life is an endless maze
Spiraling in our mind
Forever revealing
The strength of our own device
Cracking the spiral maze
Travelling to the light

Don't walk away
Too many years have gone by
We can't turn back the hands of time
But we can leave the past behind

Twisting and turning
Spinning around inside
The clock is ticking
Crack the spiral maze
4. The Power of You (5:13)
You can see your life
For only a penny
Close your eyes
Let time stand still
Listen to the wind
Whispering the answers
To the questions remaining inside

It's been so many years
Since I was a child
With so many choices in life
Now that I am old and wise
I realize I can't turn back
The hands of time

Fly away to tomorrow
In your mind, seek the truth
The future is bright
Dreams are endless
Forever waiting
In the power of You
The power of You

Don't let go
Of who you want to be
It's not too late
To change the path you take
Look into my eyes
Realize the lines in the sand
Were made by you

Fly away to tomorrow
In your mind, seek the truth
The future is bright
Dreams are endless
Forever waiting
The power of You

It's been so many years
Since I was a child
With so many choices in life
Now that I am old and wise
I realize I can't turn back
The hands of time

Fly away to tomorrow
In your mind, seek the truth
The future is bright
Dreams are endless
Forever waiting
The power of You
The power of You
Don't let go
Of who you want to be
5. Faith and Majesty (4:57)
Faith and majesty
All you'll ever need
Falling innocence
As fear draws you closer to me

The dream is ending
Something crossed the line
You feel the presence of another life
It only brings you halfway
Broken homes and hollow years
You're reaching out for answers
And your sins will help you
Look into the mist inside the crystal ball
You can watch the majesty
Through waterfall tears
Faith in what you see beyond your wildest dream
And living up to no one else but you

Faith and majesty
All you'll ever need
Falling innocence
As fear draws you closer to me

The pane of glass you look through
Will help to shade the sorrow
They all will try to use against you
It never ends
Criss crossing over things that only you can change

Now you begin
To see yourself as someone else
The air you breathe seems new
Look into the mist inside the crystal ball
You can watch the majesty
Through the waterfall
Faith in what you see beyond your wildest dream
And living up to no one else but you

Faith and majesty
All you'll ever need
Falling innocence
As fear draws you closer
Faith and majesty
All you'll ever need
Falling innocence
As fear draws you closer

Shutters breaking down
Fears fall lifeless to the ground
Still water life is ending
And you will unfold the rooms of your mansion
Turn on the lights
Turn on the lights in the dark

You will unfold the rooms of your mansion
Turn on the lights
Turn on the lights in the dark
6. Edge of Forever (5:55)
Take me from the desperate place
Free me from my dying fate
Hold me while I take my last breath
Free me

Free me now
Free me from the anger and pain
Let me contemplate sorrow
Let it all fade away

This place in time
Full of regrets and shame
Staring at a wall of faces
Faces with no names

A man on a ledge
Is a man on the edge
Looking down upon the world
Chasing shadows in the wind
Freeing himself
From the edge of forever

Voices beckoning to me
Recalling a life full of emptiness
I'm losing consciousness
The voices are calling my name

A man on a ledge
Is a man on the edge
Looking down upon the world
Chasing shadows in the wind
Freeing himself
From the edge of forever

A man on a ledge
Is a man on the edge
Looking down upon the world
Chasing shadows in the wind
Freeing himself
From the edge of forever

Awakened by a cold wind
A pool of sweat has formed below me
The open window
Breathes life back inside of me
Am I dreaming
Or am I facing the hands of fate?
Reliving years of sorrow
In a matter of seconds it seems
Freedom

A man on a ledge
Is a man on the edge
Looking down upon the world
Chasing shadows in the wind
Freeing himself
From the edge of forever
Forever

Free me now
Free me from the anger and pain
Let me contemplate sorrow
Let me find my way

Hold me now
Hold me and cast away the shadows
Don't let it end
Don't let my life slip away
7. Twilight Garden (4:35)
Alone in the darkness
I wait for you to speak
Timeless regression
A chance to say the words I feel

Take me away
Let me leave the past behind
Show me the way
To the twilight garden of peace
Let me see beyond the anger
Let me see beyond the pain

Can you hear me?
Can you feel my emptiness?
Please grant me a moment
The words flow deep from in my heart

Take me away
Let me leave the past behind
Show me the way
To the twilight garden of peace
Let me see beyond the anger
Let me see beyond the pain

Drifting away in this endless parade of emotions
Walking endlessly
I can see the light in the distance
Living life without a means to an end
Taking for granted the precious time we have
Don't leave things unsaid
The chance may not come again
Let go of yourself and don't be afraid

Take me away
Let me leave the past behind
Show me the way
To the twilight garden of peace
Let me see beyond the anger
Let me see beyond the pain

Can you see me?
I'll always see you in my dreams
8. Reigning Memories (8:38)
Adrift
In a sea of hopelessness
Watching
The wake of reality fade

Take my pain
Release my fear
Stop the world
Around me
Lose control
Of all your senses
Time stands still
In your mind

Take my pain
Release my fear
Stop the world

Trapped behind a wall
Emotions wrapped tight
Breaking the rules
You set for yourself
Relinquish control
In only for a moment
Engulfed in flames
Your heart bleeds forgiveness

Watching the world
Leaving you behind
Wanting to be free
Fearing the end
Waiting for daylight
Hiding in the darkness
Losing your feeling
Crossing the thin line

Raining memories
Upon deserted highways
Freedom rings through the night
Grasp for your lifeline

Grasp for your lifeline
Transcending resistance
Defying your existence
Remain on the inside

Help me, I'm drowning
Save me, from my mind
Release me, now

Looking at a mirror of pain
Reflections of madness
Build as snowflakes on a windowsill
Lie to yourself
To conquer
The fear of breaking
Once again

Help me, I'm drowning
Save me, from my mind

Trapped behind a wall
Emotions wrapped tight
Breaking the rules
You set for yourself
Relinquish control
In only for a moment
Engulfed in flames
Your heart bleeds forgiveness

Watching the world
Leaving you behind
Wanting to be free
Fearing the end
Waiting for daylight
Hiding in the darkness
Losing your feeling
Crossing the thin line
9. Adrian's Ladder part I - From Inside the Mirror (6:23)
Another cloudy day, another sleepless night
An empty photograph is all that's left behind
The phone rings at 3 am, a whisper on the other end
Reliving the pain once again
One last moment
One last try

The passion builds inside you, the magic folds around you
Release is just a moment away
Looking out from the inside, a heart can break like glass
A child gazes up in wonder
She will run to forgive you

The scene escapes me, from inside the mirror
Illusion, come take me
And open the door that they deny
And step inside

Come to the mirror with me
A deep place, a deep breath
More than words could ever say
A deep place, a deep sigh
Nowhere to look but inside
Nowhere to run except to me

The scene escapes me, from inside the mirror
Illusion, come take me
And open the door that they deny

Step inside and show the world who you are
No more anguish
No more fear
Tonight your reflection lets you smile again

The scene escapes me, from inside the mirror
Illusion, come take me
And open the door that they deny
Sometimes I see shadows of a face from inside the mirror
Illusion it scares me
And shows me a life I can't deny
There's nowhere to run from inside the mirror
Illusion, come take me
And open the door that they deny
And step inside
10. Adrian's Ladder part II - Timeless (1:34)
Breathless I drift into your room
Where you lie sleeping
Behind the moonlight
As phantoms drift away
Silently you breathe
A perfect rhythm
Imagining the dream
Behind your lidded eyes
I could watch forever
But moments only amplify the plea
Why can't I help this poor child?
So when you go to sleep
I hope you think of me
Because I think of you
11. Adrian's Ladder part III - Everytime it Rains (5:09)
Every time it rains

You may remember me
I am the man in the vest
You told all your secrets to me
As I lay dying
You held out your hand
The pain was in my heart
And when you smiled at me
It started to rain

Every time it rains
I always think of you
The face you almost see
Inside your mirror is me
Every time it rains
Every time it rains

The light is calling me
But dream these words I must say
Your dreaming eyes will never see
All you did for me
You held out your hand
The pain was in my heart
And when you smiled at me
Rain

Your ladder brings you up
Your ladder takes you down
The choice you have to make
Is which rung to stand on

You've helped me all you can
You've been so much more than kind
Now you can leave the mirror
And I promise I'll be fine
And I'll think of you today
Every time it rains

Every time it rains
I always think of you
The face I see it clear
So far and yet so near
Every time it rains
You held out your hand
Every time it rains
The pain was in my heart
Every time it rains
Every time it rains
12. The Future is Now (9:13)
I have seen what's now
I'm waiting for the fall
Never looking past, show me something
To focus my eyes, I want to survive
The trials of my life
I'm taking control of the gift I have
The gift of life that is
It's mine to fulfill
Open up to the faith in you
The power of yourself
You are in control
To take me to a place

I have found a paradise
I want you to see
What our world can be

Show me what can be
What I can see if I believe

Now that's what can be
I'll show you the way
If you trust me
And with you and with me
I'll make your dreams come true
The faith you find in you
Use your heart and soul
And learn the lesson
Of what will bring me there
Time has changed for me
I need to succeed
And bring a world of
Change inside myself
It's not hard to do when belief is there
Trust me when I say

Bring your world a new
Chance to be alive
Reborn, renewed

Show me what can be
What I can see if I believe
And my dreams will come true

Look inside, see yourself
See the reflections of your soul
Pull from the inside, your inner light
Harmonize with you and your world
And get ready to explode

I hold in my hand a burning need
To find myself and plant the seed
It glows inside like a raging fire
I have it in me, I have the desire
I see what I need, I found my plan
It's in my sights, I know I can
Forget your past, put it behind you
Your future lies inside of you

Show me what can be
What I can see if I believe
It's in my sight, it's what is right
And my dreams will come true
The power that I feel I know is real
If I believe
I need to show you what I know
That the future is now
