Night Is the New Day Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 휘리언
1. Forsaker (4:05)
Rage from a distant
The name unfamiliar
Spikes reach the heart
Time set for rewind

[Chorus:]
The dark will rise
Abandon your freedom
Give up the right to find the true self
Forsake your own reasons

Forsaker [x2]

Hand of a leader
Bleached by snowfall
Opposition is drugged
The great end is sweeping in

[Chorus]

Forsaker [x3]
2. The Longest Year (4:39)
In the nights of old I always wished
In the longest year that had me down
And I would freeze if you ever asked me
That was my way

[x2]
Confront the guilt and try to overcome
Do not go away
I'm not there yet

[Chorus:]
I can see fire
When I fall behind (fall behind)
When I give up
My thoughts redefined
How cold is the flame
Of our uncompromising future
How cold is the sun

The city lights fading still
The coming sky so white
And I'm the dark of this our new day
This is my way

Find the one
This weight will hold me down
How cold is the sun

[Chorus]
3. Idle Blood (4:23)
You there
Bringer of my despair
You are stagnation of hope and will
O you personify loss and remorse
And you hide until my fears reappear

[Chorus:]
The love for life once bright
(Out of sight)
A burning fuse
The only flame I have
Fate's spiral down this curve
(Shall only serve)
The seeds growing my misery
These wounds kill time
My struggle sublime
Idle the blood
A black state of mind
All dreams left behind

You claim to be my long absent friend
You are the cancer that just moved in
You come with the dark night of the soul
But I am turning my back on you
You know I do

[Chorus]

[x2]
Idle the blood
A black state of mind
All my dreams left behind
4. Onward Into Battle (3:52)
In the still eclipse
Every light is a heartbeat
In the spring
Where I watch
The sudden change

I find this so hard

[Chorus:]
Onward into the battle
Time is growing so dark around me
I, shallow one
I burn us out
Day by idle day

Days at the sea
My words are incomplete
In the blind spot
Where I saw you
On the 4th at night

I find this so hard

[Chorus]
5. Liberation (4:18)
Sold are the eyes I have
And cold is the wait for nothing
And dark
I write my name in a long line
How is it possible for you to try

It's coming true
I've changed my name but I will pass it on to you

Journey
No present thoughts
Coming day
Darkest wave

[Chorus:]
It's coming true
I've changed my name but I will pass it on to you
Our thoughts entwined
You speak
And I hear other words behind

I wave from the edge of the pier
And fade into dreams of sleepers
Marked
I have had this stain for a long time
We called on the bird long before

[Chorus]
6. The Promise of Deceit (4:18)
Evening
Coming through the crowd
I hold my head high
Straining
Out here dissonance surrounds
I hold my head high
I see the wings behind your back

Burned all the maps to reach you
Watching distant names
I saw danger
And then I felt the pressure

Downfall
This is our time
The setting sun over all I ever had

[Chorus:]
So when did you come to think
That you would tell me that I have no one
And when do you think that you
Will give back the things that you owe me

Burned all the maps to reach you
Watching distant names
I saw danger
And then I felt the pressure

[Chorus]
7. Nephilim (4:27)
[Chorus:]
Loving mother
He has come
To take your son

Listen
How he strides the earth
When only animals are awake
When the shattering of ideals begin
God of ruin
Will come to you

[Chorus x2]

Fallen
From the faded sky
Nephilim comes through foul air
And when morals will decline
God of ruin
Will come to you

Lalalalala lalalala lalalalalalala lalala

[Chorus x2]
8. New Night (4:28)
The pledge
I've forgotten this time
I am so uncertain
That my heart will go on
My beloved one
If you where here you'd find
That I'm not feeling well
But that will have to go on

[Chorus:]
And though summer unwinds now
I have no reason to follow
I have only you
My sun is pale
My heart's old

Why
So quiet this new night
There's a white cloud
Under my eyelid
My beloved one
There is swirling dark
Shrouding my freedom

Cold is the undertone
Hold my hand
I'm in the waiting line
Mute I stand
Barren ground

[Chorus]
9. Inheritance (4:30)
Our inconvenient burden
It could be lifted off of us
If we gave up
To finally let go
Of the free will that we were given
Our graves
Above the timberline
Our name chalked
The pressure of wealth
No longer found

The unforgiving void
The forge in which our values burn
The resting leech
Our thinning minds
In my abstinence I turn to nothing

Our graves
Above the timberline
Our name chalked
The pressure of wealth
No longer found

[x2]
Let them inherit this fire now
Lest they will forget that we were
Ever here
10. Day & Then the Shade (4:27)
I will rise
To dreams of freedom
And avow
To return the treason that came under your reign
The day and then the shade
I have slept
Inside the season that froze within my grasp

[Chorus:]
All my fears come into view
There must be an end soon
And every waking hour
Is part of the lie

I will rise
Over glass cathedrals
And let go
With my eyes resting upon the nearing dark
The day and then the shade
I have slept
Within the reason that kept me so remote

Make a brand new vow
In the heat of an evening
The darkness swarms
I was nothing, ever
But red like the sun
Dying down over the freeway
Is the brand new sky
Over the mountain ridge

[Chorus x2]

Make a brand new vow
In the heat of an evening
The darkness swarms
I was nothing, ever
But red like the sun
Dying down over the freeway
Is the brand new sky
Over the mountain ridge
11. Departer (5:27)
[Special digibook edition bonus track]

Won't forgive your ways
I strip my mind with all but scorn
The scales of madness mesmerize

Voice your dead prayer

Hey
You used me
But I had none to confide

Under a veil of stars
Where the darkness grows
The pressure from the chain that you hold me in
Ornament of scars
And the darkness rising
Over the ashen stains that I hold within

Did not forget the name
I stripped my mind with all but you
The scales of madness just before we die
