As Daylight Dies Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. As Daylight Dies (4:06)
Slowly, we watch the degradation of the civilization
The rise and fall of all we are stands before us

This place is evil
Is there an answer?
This world is vile
We are the answer
Oh!

How long until we die?
Die from the inside out
How much is enough for us to see the light?
How much blood must be spilled?

Contest the lies
We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries
Don't wait till daylight dies, woah (daylight dies).

When there is blood on our hands,
How can we (how can we) ignore the truth?

Contest the lies
We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries
Don't wait till daylight dies.

The cost of one life
The price of one soul
Is too much to bear.

No more broken promises
Our shattered hearts will heal
No more broken promises
No more (no more)

Contest the lies
We cannot be so blind
Hear their cries (hear their cries).
Don't wait till daylight dies (daylight dies).

How long until it dies?
How long? (How long?) How long?
How long until it dies
How long? How long?
2. This is Absolution (3:35)
We will not die this way, in unification
They cannot break these chains of faith
Let them do their worst (let them do their worst)
Never slaves to iniquity

We will not die this way (this is absolution)
Death claims us no more (no more)
Do not grieve, end the suffering
We will live, live eternal

Will you take the stand among the dead?
Bury your fear, and hold fast to life

We will not die this way (this is absolution)
Death claims us no more (no more)
Do not grieve, end the suffering
We will live, live eternal

Anchor yourself to the foundation of everything you love
Believe you have just become to live

Don't let the world deceive you
Don't let their words betray you
Don't let their lies deceive you
Lead them to their graves

We will not die this way (this is absolution)
Death claims us no more (no more)
Do not grieve, end the suffering
We will live, live eternal
3. The Arms of Sorrow (3:50)
Imprisoned inside this mind
Hiding behind the empty smiles
So simple (the anguish)
As it haunts me
Crawling back into the dark

Running, always running, into the distance
Stop me before I bleed, again
The echoes of my voice
Follow me down
The shadows I cast
Follow me down

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Blindly descending
Into the arms of sorrow

There must be serenity

The echoes of my voice
Follow me down
The shadows I cast
Follow me down

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Blindly descending
Into the arms of sorrow

The demon of my own design
This horror must not remain

Deeper I'm falling
Into the arms of sorrow
Blindly descending
Into the arms of sorrow

There must be serenity

There must be deliverance

Deeper I'm falling

Blindly descending
4. Unbroken (3:10)
Go!
Forever falling, Into oblivion
The darkness crawls forward
It engulfs, my will to live
Fear is failure
And this is my motivation

Take back what was stolen
Reclaim all that's lost
With virtue, I will rise up from the ruins

C'mon!
Through adversity, there is redemption
With passion, fighting
I am unbroken
Through adversity, there is redemption
With passion, fighting
I am, unbroken!!

Take back what was stolen
Embrace the cycle
Refuse to turn back now and be led astray
Fear is failure
And this is my affirmation

Through adversity, there is redemption
With passion, fighting
I am unbroken
Through adversity, there is redemption
With passion, fighting
Unbroken!!

The absence of fear, is the renewal of ourself
The absence of doubt, breeds desire
If there is truth to face
I will design it
I will not be denied!
5. My Curse (4:05)
I watched you walk away
Hopeless, with nothing to say
I strain my eyes
Hoping to see you again

This is my curse (the longing)
This is my curse (time)
This is my curse (the yearning)
This is my curse

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?
Will you be there?

Your silence haunts me
But I still hunger for you

This is my curse (the wanting)
This is my curse (time)
This is my curse (the needing)
This is my curse

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?

And still I want
And still I ache
But still I wait
To see you again

Dying, inside, these walls [2x]

And I see your face in these tears
In these tears
And I see your face...

There is love [8x]
6. For You (4:11)
The finest parts of me
Are only shades of you
To put aside the ties that bind
Is the goal of man

I give my word
To stand the test of time
No more wasted days
The past must perish

The line is drawn
I pledge my devotion
There is no turning back
This heart is yours

I sacrifice for you
For you
For you

This is immortal

The finest parts of me
Are only shades of you
With each passing day
This heart is endless

No more wasted time
We are immortal

The line is drawn
I pledge my devotion
There is no turning back
This heart is ours

I sacrifice for you
For you
For you

This is the everlasting
This is immortal
Your words are my inspiration
Your life, the image of perfection
For all you are
For all you've done
I strive to be in your reflection

The line is drawn
I pledge my devotion
7. Still Beats Your Name (3:20)
Who knows how long I've been lost in the dark?
Followed closely by the footsteps of my failures.
What can I do to alter my perception of the way and the truth?

Let this burden drift away.

Who knows how long the void has swallowed me?
I only wish for nothing more than peace to find me.
How can this be? We've come so far
To let the weight destroy our grand design

Let this burden drift away.
My pledge remains faithful to you.

And my heart still beats your name

[x2]
Drowning once again.
Will I live another day?
To reach the surface
Let this burden drift away

Drowning
Choking
Fading
Life

Is this the moment where I leave the blackness?
Is this the moment of my rebirth?

Who knows how long I've been lost in the dark?
Followed closely by the footsteps of my failures.
What can I do to alter my perception of the way and the truth?

Drowning once again.
Will I live another day?
To reach the surface
Let this burden drift away

Drowning again
Reach the surface
Let it drift away
8. Eye of the Storm (3:56)
As time goes by
Nothing has changed
I wont stand and watch
You wither away

After all this time
I stand by you
Through all of the years
I've been with you

Through pain and affliction
With every addiction
I will never let you down

I will live by this code!
Never surrender
You and I are one

Through the eye
Of the storm
You are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone

After all this time
Still you struggle
Even words of love
Ring so hollow

I have no regrets
I have no remorse
And if you falter
I wont let you down

Through the eye
Of the storm
you are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone

Come on

Together we stand
Never fall
No matter the trial
We will overcome
Together we stand
Never fall
No matter the Trial
We will overcome

Through the eye
Of the storm
You are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone

Never
Together we stand
Never fall
No matter the trial
We will overcome
We will overcome
9. Break the Silence (4:33)
As I live and breathe
I'm watching, watching the world die
We greet this with apathy no longer

Consumed by self
We walk through each day
With no mind to deprivation and moral decay

We must destroy and rebuild
We must destroy and rebuild
For the sake of all, it starts with one
With one

As I live and breathe
I'm watching, watching the world die
We greet this with apathy no longer

If we cant break the silence (how can we survive?)
Search inside yourself (and know that you're alive)
We must break the silence
Now we are alive
Silent no longer

Make this world, take notice
The change is in our hands
The battle has just begun
We are not defeated

If we cant break the silence (how can we survive?)
Search inside yourself (and know that you're alive)
We must break the silence
Now we are alive
Silent no longer

With all that I am
I will lift my voice
To start this revolution
It starts today
And it starts with me
Time is no longer

With all I am
I will lift my voice
With all I am
It starts with me

Break the silence [3X]
We are alive
Break the silence [3X]
We are alive
10. Desperate Times (4:41)
Time and time again
I stand at the crossroad
Where the weight of my burden
Eclipses my resolve
This broken path I've chosen
I walk it alone
Though I feel forgotten
You've carved my name in stone

In these desperate times
This I plead
When all else fails
Remember me

This is daily crucifixion
And these rusty nails leave scars
My jagged crown is on my side
Because it never fell

In these desperate times
This I plead
When all else fails
Remember me

This is a blood-oath
They are nothing to me anymore
But your voice means more to me than you'll ever know

There's no question
You're the answer
I will find you...

In these desperate times
This I bleed
When all fails
Remember me
In these desperate times
This I bleed
When all fails
Remember me
11. Reject Yourself (4:44)
Oh!
Woah!

Their cries are blown away with the wind
How passive can we be before humanity is lost?
Turning our backs on those who need love
We must not rest while healing is needed

Tear down the veil
That bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself
Give your souls to compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life

So little time is left
We must be relentless
In our pursuit of those in torment

Tear down the veil (tear down the veil)
That bars your heart from feeling this
Dedicate yourself (dedicate yourself)
Become the voice of compassion

With open arms embrace this heart
With open eyes behold the truth
Embrace this life

EEYAAAAAAHHH!

Can you reject yourself?
Can you feel their agony?
In a world that feeds on disregard
Heal the broken hearted
