Ghost Opera Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 큐션
1. Solitaire (1:00)
2. Rule The World (3:41)
When a new day reaches dawn
I feel it's worth the wait
But I tumble and I fall
When up against my fate

When the barricades come down
I build them up again
When I'm just about to drown
I still don't know the end

[Chorus:]
Sometimes I tremble
Like a little child
That faces morning
With a broken smile
Sometimes I crumble
When the shades unfurl
Sometimes I feel that
I could rule the world

[Solo]

When the morning comes alive
Release your love brigade
At the end of day it's night
To suck it up with hate

[Chorus x2]

(That faces morning
With a broken smile
Sometimes I crumble
When the shades unfurl
Sometimes I feel that
I could rule the world)
3. Ghost Opera (4:06)
Walls so white
Where your sorrows have a name
And day is dark as night
There's no remorse and no redemption

Close the door
Can you hear the crowd is waiting?
For a last encore
Screaming out for my attention

Chanting my name

[Chorus:]
Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra
Like a crescendo of gratitude
This is my song

Like the dead
I am on the other side
They're howling in my head
There's no remorse and no redemption

Hush my dear
Let the music fill the night
And soon it's all we hear
Screaming out for my attention

Chanting my name
Chanting my name

[Chorus:]
Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra
Like a crescendo of gratitude

Don't wake me
Until it's over
I, I may be dreaming
And awake

[Solo]

Chanting my name
Chanting my name

[Chorus:]
Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra

Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra
4. The Human Stain (4:01)
See the cemetery sky
Carmine red and deep
Watch the oceans rising high
It's the human stain

Talk about the growing hunger
Ask why with deep concerned
Don't you think the human races
Is ceaselessly vain

[Chorus:]
But it hurts to be
Alive my friend
In this silent tide
We're driftwood passing by

Don't you wish you
Were a child again
Just for a minute
Just for a minute more

Hear the ticking of a clock
The sound of life itself
No one really wants to die
To save the world

Tell me that you're torn asunder
From how we fail to learn
And tell me if the Earth goes under
Where's your anger now

[Chorus:]
So it hurts to
Be alive, my friend
In this masquerade where
All one day must die

Don't you wish you
Were unborn again
Just for a minute
Just for a minute more

[Solo]

Tic-Toc
The ticking at the tear asunder
The beating from a heart of stone
The loss of your divine prosperity

[Chorus:]
'Cause it costs to
Be alive, my friend
And this life that someone
Merely gave to you

That's the price you take
Minute by minute
You beg for a minute more
5. Blücher (4:04)
Dim is the light of a war day
In the land of the undying sun
Hollow the silence around me
Distant the sound of a gun

Port side is close to the shore
I wonder where she is
Incoming shot cross the bow
Will she remember me

Wail my April moon
God forsaken soul
I remember you
Come with me tonight

Damned is the dawn of a new day
Revelations of death and despair
Frost misty waters around me
Frantic and naked the fear

Port side is close to the shore
Incoming shot cross the bow

Wail my April moon
God forsaken soul
I remember you
Come with me tonight

Say your prayers
Loud and clearly
All who still believe in god
6. Love You to Death (5:13)
When they met she was fifteen
Like a black rose blooming wild
And she already knew she was gonna die

"What's tomorrow without you?
Is this our last goodbye"

She got weaker every day
As the autumn leaves flew by
Until one day, she told him,
"This is when I die"

"What was summer like for you?"
She asked him with a smile
"What's tomorrow without you?"
He silently replied

She said,

"I will always be with you
I'm the anchor of your sorrow
There's no end to what I'll do
'Cause I love you, I love you to death"

But the sorrow went too deep
The mountain fell too steep
And the wounds would never heal
'Cause the pain of the loss
was more than he could feel

He said,

"I will always be with you
By the anchor of my sorrow
All I know, or ever knew,
Is I love you, I love you to death"

"What's tomorrow without you?
Is this our last goodbye?"

[Solo]

"I will always be with you
I'm the anchor of your sorrow
There's no end to what I'll do
'Cause I love you"
7. Up Through the Ashes (4:59)
So you can heal
They claim with conviction
You've got a crowd

So what's your appeal
Your voice, your predictions
They're getting loud

But if I let you die, you must forgive me

Raise me up, up through the ashes
(welcome the paradise you made)
Take me on, into the light

You want to die
Create a sensation
Be makin' the news

An eye for an eye
my king of creation
king of the Jews

Before I let you die, you must forgive me

Raise me up, up through the ashes
(welcome the paradise you made)
Take me on, into the light

[Solo]

Give me a sign of remorse
(I don't need your blood)
You will hang on the cross
For playing god

You the people must decide
The self-proclaimed prophet, or the novice murderer
The king or the convict, it's up to you
So tell me who's free to go

Raise me up, up through the ashes
(forgive my every sin)
Take me on, into the light
Raise me up, up through the ashes
Take me on, into the light
8. Mourning Star (4:38)
On the fields you restore your beliefs,
Like an old man in church on a Sunday.
crawl the dirt on your elbows and knees,
Any minute you know you could die.

So come save us, turn water to wine,
Give me words of unfathomable wisdom
As I'm crossing the enemy's line,
Where the wounded and dead show the way.

(Show me the way)

Tell me when the night is gone,
Like washed away,
Make a wish beneath the mourning star.

How can there be a reason for war?
For the life of a human that suffers
I remember, I heard it before,
Tell me all when the new day begins.

(The new day begins)

Tell me when the night is gone,
Like washed away,
Make a wish beneath the mourning star.
When the victory is won,
The old cliché,
Underneath the same old mourning star.

[rest in peace all that be good]
why please tell me why
[rest in piece thy fatherhood]
You gave the world all this pain

Tell me when the man is gone,
Like washed away,
Make a wish beneath the mourning star.
When the victory is won,
The old cliché,
Underneath the same old mourning star.
9. Silence of the Darkness (3:43)
I don't dare to take it slowly,
Cause time may pass me by.
Restless like a newborn morning,
I am hard to satisfy.
Will you take me away?

In the silence of the darkness,
I can't pretend I'm wide awake,
Afraid I could go under.
In the silence of the darkness,
I stumble for the light of day,
But the journey never ends.

I can paint the world with flowers,
grown by heaven's gate.
and reckless like the stormy ocean,
I could cover them with hate.
But it all sounds the same.

In the silence of the darkness,
I can't pretend I'm wide awake,
Afraid I could go under.
In the silence of the darkness,
I stumble for the light of day,
But the journey never ends.

In the silence of the darkness,
I can't pretend I'm wide awake,
Afraid I could go under.
In the silence of the darkness,
I stumble for the light of day,
But the journey never ends.
10. Anthem (4:25)
What's the miracle, if life itself is not?
Who am I to praise it's worth
With a hymn??
I may stumble over words that I forgot,
Just as life itself will slowly begin.

Sing me a song for the mountains to move,
Sing me the anthem of life,
Sing me the anthem of life.

I'm sceptical, I like my glass of wine,
I don't know your name, or what I am to do.
One day you'll wonder why I read between the lines,
And you will sing for me, the way I sang for you.

Sing me a song for the ocean to part,
Sing me the anthem of life,
Sing me the anthem of life,
Sing me the anthem of life.

So another page is turned,
Pray I understand what's happening,
But if anything, I do know this,
I'll be the best I can.

Sing me a song like the angels rejoice,
Sing me an anthem of life,
Sing me the anthem,
Sing me the anthem of life.
11. EdenEcho (4:13)
First you said that you would never leave me
Merry were my days
Then you told me life is never easy
And left without a trace

But how come I want you
Like the soil yearns for the rain

Won't you light up
Won't you light up my life
Let my soul breathe
Tell me wrong tell me right
You're my mind cage
Like a mountain far away
You were always there
Dressed in summer white

You will never know how much I miss you
Or open to my fear
Find a maze I make my way through
and enter if you dare

How come I want you
Like the soil yearns for the rain

Won't you light up
Won't you light up my life
Let my soul breathe
Tell me wrong tell me right
You're my mind cage
Like a mountain far away
You were always there
Dressed in summer white

Remember my name
And paint the darkness with your light
Go sing your song for all the broken hearted
Like Eden echoes in my head
The unforgiven gave you all

Won't you light up
Won't you light up my life
Let my soul breathe
Tell me wrong tell me right
You're my mind cage
Like a mountain far away
You were always there
Dressed in summer white
12. The Pendulous Fall (Limited Edition Bonus Track)
In a garden in a hand
Lies a key to shadow land
You're far from feeling strong
The worst begins

In the sediments of life
In the comfort of a knife
You hold your breath
And pray to god it won't take long

And you wonder where the rainbow ends
With its autumn setting sun

[Chorus:]
There's a way from it all
Though the chances are small
We'll come back again
Won't you think it over

Life is a pendulous fall
But maybe worth the pain
And soon enough we'll go
Where nobody can touch us

Like a mother you were aimed
And you gave her what she claimed
Just like a good old friend
In the abyss of the mind
You found all there is to find
Bet we all have broken hearts to mend

So you wonder where the rainbow ends
Where the world must have begun

[Chorus:]
There's a way from it all
Though the chances are small
We'll come back again
Won't you think it over

Life is a pendulous fall
But maybe worth the pain
And soon enough we'll go
Where nobody can touch us

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
There's a way from it all
Though the chances are small
We'll come back again
Won't you think it over

Life is a pendulous fall
But maybe worth the pain
And soon enough we'll go

Life is a pendulous fall
But maybe worth the pain
(So you wonder where the rainbow ends)
Where nobody can touch us
