The Great Cold Distance Lyrics

Submitted by level 휘리언
1. Leaders (4:21)
Leaders come
Stand in line
Reveal your true self & conform
I sold my song
Crossed the borderline
I found something I'd never adjust to

Come here
I've Paid up for you
I have sold my weakness too
Come here
I split my heart in two
But you don't have it in you
Do you

Carbon soul
Transparent & played out
See you soon in non-fiction
I sold my song
My mouth was sewn
but it's coming undone & that's why I sold out
2. Deliberation (4:00)
Visions come
Visions come
In a sickroom bed
There's something left to learn
Pass them on
Let it show
Let the rich meet death
Confront our own concern

See us sleep behind the glass
Unaware of crime
Will you wake us up before it is time

The red circle holds the only light
Break down my perspective
And notify everyone when the time is right
My mouth remains inactive

So when you let me in
You let me justify my own reward
You put your hands on me
And I learn the words I didn't know before

I am ice
I am clear
Let the world be cold
Our deliberation
Pass them on
Let it show
Let the words come slow
Your constant incantation

Repeating cycle of light/no light
There's nothing in the airspace
There's no one in the airspace
Repeating cycle of love/no love
3. Soil's Song (4:12)
The dream is so far
Come and take the consequence
Few things are as certain
Winter state
Oppressive wait

Assemble here
Soil's song
In your throat
Future death
In your reach
Who's first

Your face well hidden
Keep your last words in your hand
Fold it and open up
Time to go
Release the glow
4. My Twin (3:41)
The neck and then the chain
The head is hung in shame
I thought that you had grown
That you would carry on
But now that I have gone
What else has been withdrawn

You used to be like my twin
And all that's been
Was it all for nothing
Are you strong when you're with him
The one who's placed you above us all

I think of love
I let it pass
It feels like fire
But it won't last

What is it coming to
I'm unwilling to go on
You have lost
No one has won
5. Consternation (3:51)
Wave back at me
Back is turned
If I fail once
Circuit burn

Saw you in the lampglow
You fade
Nothingness incarnate

Until I get there
I will be

Internal source
Stray from course
6. Follower (4:46)
Hurts to see
My incapacity
Idle mind
You have changed me

My mouth is shut
Stupidity have shut my mouth

So when you come
I'm too unprepared to come along
I hold your hand so hard my knuckles turn white
When you clear the streets
And kill the lights

See the line
Border to freedom
The words
My name
You have changed it

Your tone change to cool
This is how you tell me once again
How I have nothing on you
How everything is supposed to end

I won't make it
It's the journey of a life
Fix my eyes on the sun
What have I done
7. Rusted (4:21)
A rush through the rusted veins
Illuminate the face of one
So i have a light
So unaware about the consequence

I heard no warning
About the little compromise
The distorted views you had

Cold white spring
A wordless song I sing
White cloud
All my thoughts are in doubt
8. Increase (4:20)
As thin as it gets
I stare right through
The severe sickness in this room
Not mine
It comes from you

Soul cold
There won't be a time when I'm at ease
Increase coldness
Increase ignorance

Rewind and look at you
As on film
You will see a mask of shame
I think you will
Your position in life
So unworthy

Find and twist the answer
Save no one from harm
As seen in the vision
Sick sleep sick dead earth
9. July (4:45)
You come clean
Waves collide now
Defenseless numb arms
And no voice of reason

So how come you invited me too
You knew I wanted you
You glide above
So this night belongs to you
I know this isn't through
Are you dead to love

I see the bright lights
It's the month of July
It's violent here
Why have you left me
If only you could stay
And keep me in
It's violent here
Why did you run from me

Night devour me
10. In The White (4:54)
Are you in or are you out
The words are stones in my mouth
Hush little baby don't you cry
Truth comes down
Strikes me in the eye

Turning season within
Brand new nails across my skin
But who am I to imply
That I was found
That I found you in the white

To overcome this
I become one with
The quiet cold of late November
If you don't see
I'll remain unseen
Until there's time to be remembered

So I had a green light
I was lost in city lights
Not so far from a try
This is not our last goodbye

So I found you
Found a way all through
The quiet cold of inner darkness
And now that you're here
It becomes so clear
I have waited for you always
11. The Itch (4:20)
Subdued back then
So quiet now
Systematic violence
The great cold distance

The itch
The urge

Make way
Think of something
Thin out the fear
Past the tracks
Part the Ways
One stand here
Kill the itch
Check the air
And push to get there

Symbol on the surface
Reduced Illumination
Chemical Inheritance

The lies
The Fever
12. Journey Through Pressure (4:21)
Pushing the will
Being alive
Well I have been
I came far
The process of trying
To act unharmed
It will fade out

Thoughts will unwind
No longer mine
They are for you
When you come
So long
I'm cutting here
And the water's blood
When you come

The sky moves faster at this time of year
