Digital Lies Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Incipio (0:34)
(instrumental)
2. Betrayal Blind (5:00)
Deception, a hollow victory
Raging, in murderous fury
Reflection, a jester devil sent
Parading, marauding malcontent

PRE-CHORUS:
“I march on, through the chaos of my affliction
Remain strong, against inciters of sedition
I stand tall, amongst agents of iniquity
If I fall, I’ll rise to reclaim my destiny”

CHORUS:
Betrayal blind, believer of a lie
The fire died, no longer can I fight
An end in sight, breathing in new life
The darkest night, dreaming of the light

Inception, born of blackening
Engaging, vehement war within
Deflection, shadowing of mind
Denying, echoing through time

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: MARK

REPEAT CHORUS
3. Digital Lies (5:51)
Utopian dream or so they say
The world has changed
Tomorrow is today
Our lives enriched, enhanced
Nature obsolete
Fibre optic data stream
The only path we seek

Strapped down, alone, the table cold
I fear my fate
Around me tools and cables coiled
My forced “upgrade”
Stripped of my will and freedom sold
Skin ripped away
Augmented flesh and bone
Now taking shape

CHORUS:
So come follow me
I’ll show you eternity
We’ll reach for the morning sky
Tomorrow is yours and mine
So come follow me
And live out your wildest dreams
A digital life arrived
A cybernetic future world, it’s time

Dystopian life is here to stay
Pushed too far ahead
Mankind lost their way
Our lives betrayed, replaced
Humanity obsolete
Crying tears of ohs and ones
And artificial screams

Cold steel and laser beams
Dismember limb from limb
My captors work and smile
With mirthless, heartless grins
A child of Frankenstein
Not man and not machine
Scheming sweet revenge
The likes before unseen

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: MARK / LT

REPEAT CHORUS
4. Point of View (6:56)
Today the world can go to hell you say
An angry life for angry times
And all around conspiracies
When life is out to kick you down
No chance, just dance – a puppet on a string

And you see your world through cold jaded eyes
All the beauty and wonderment is gone
There can be no joy – all darkness without light
At the day’s end you know there’s something wrong

CHORUS 1:
The path you take is up to you
Can’t you see your life is waiting
Light and dark – a point of view
Understand this plan is at your command
Your fate in your hands or be damned

Today is gonna be a perfect day
A smile and goodwill all around
Ignoring plain reality
Won’t let the bastards bring you down
You feel, unreal – gloss-over everything

And you see your world through rose shaded eyes
All the beauty and wonderment adorn
There will be all joy – no darkness only light
At the day’s end you know there’s something wrong

CHORUS 2:
The path you take is up to you
Can’t you see your life is waiting
Light and dark – a point of view
Understand this plan is all in your hands

The life you make is up to you
And you’ll see a new world is waiting
And good or bad – a point of view
Understand this plan is at your command
Your fate in your hands or be damned

SOLO: LT / MARK / LT

Today is just another normal day
Where good and bad can come to anyone
Dumb luck and no conspiracies
No false pretense to guide my way
That’s life, that’s right – I know it’s up to me
And I see my world through unclouded eyes
All the cruelty and wonderment unbound
And the key is balance, no darkness without light
At the day’s end I’ve known it all along

REPEAT CHORUS 2
5. Walk Away (5:37)
Oh no, the circle turns again
So low, return to play pretend

And so much time has gone
The years have passed us by (time and time again)
Still the song’s the same
Believe our own true lies

PRE-CHORUS:
Oh, now times have changed, rearranged
Become estranged (turn the pages again)
And we’ll never be the same again

CHORUS:
When a promise is betrayed
And we turn to walk away (from the life we had)
A choice you’ve made
And you’ve gone where I can’t follow
Like the passing of the days
Things will never be the same (as the time we had)
Now it’s time to say goodbye
And walk away

No grow, we stay the same, yet expecting change again
So go, this charade must come to its end

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

Oh no, the circle turns again
So low, return face the end

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS
6. 2D Person in a 3D World (4:19)
Got a metal suit and brutal tie
Throw the horns at all who pass you by
Off to work, you bang your head
Rock all day then it’s off to brutal bed

You’re more metal than me
You drift away to steel dreams
The one thing that’s harder than you
Is how hard you try…

CHORUS:
I don’t ever want to be
Someone else untrue to me
Just a parody
And be a 2D person in a 3D world
Never buy into the hype
Always follow what feels right
Become the archetype
And not a 2D person in a 3D world

Got your pants down low and your hood up high
Wrapped up tight, your golden chains they shine
It’s forty degrees on a summer’s day
Your skin white as the snow so far away

You’re more hardcore than me
Crusin’ to your R’n'B
You’re so ill dope and fly
You’re from the west side… of Bankstown

REPEAT CHORUS

Don’t care if you’re…
Black white, Tall short, Thin fat
Or care if you’re…
Gay straight, Boy girl, Rich poor
Or even if you’re…
Hardcore, raver, punk rock, metalhead
Gamer geek, Jesus freak, Atheist
Or have a…
Big house, rich friends, fast car, ten guitars
You’re still a douche!

SOLO: LT

BRIDGE:
So like what you like
Be proud of who you are
But you look like a fool
When you take it too far…

REPEAT CHORUS x2
7. Final Seconds (5:29)
The day has come, out of time
Journey’s end – it’s the end of the line
A time for tears, to face your fears
Retrace the years, here by fate or by design

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Will you stare back in sorrow
Or remember the smiles and the sighs
So farewell everyone
One look back now the race is all but run
End of day, no more to say
Accept your fate
Or do you pray it’s some mistake

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Be it leading or follow
Face the truth, were you all you should be

CHORUS:
In the final seconds of your life
Will you cry or fly

As you walk into the light
“So take me”
One last reflection on your time
As it fades away
And you face your last tomorrow
Forever
Your time has come

SOLO: LT / MARK

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS 1

REPEAT CHORUS
8. The Last Encore (8:34)
Tonight there’s a spark in the air
The last curtain call
With crowd growing restless
I take to the stage
To the cheers of their great enthrall

Under the fervid gaslights
The pleasure and pain
Reciting line after line from the heart
This moment unseen again

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Oh, it’s so long ago, it all feels like yesterday
The thrill of the show, this chill never goes away, no
The roar of the crowd, the agony and ecstasy
That was then, this is now
Now it’s gone…

CHORUS:
I’m walking through a moonless night
Keep searching for a new spotlight
And everyday it takes all my might
To make it through to morning light, oh
It must be two hundred years on
The years lost in time
Gets harder with each passing day to recall
The day that I died

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Oh, it’s so long ago, it all feels like yesterday
The chill, it’s like snow, the cold never fades away, no
In a heartbeat, a breath, all stolen away from me
A man, once with dream, once with life
Now it’s gone…

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
And we all turned to bow, it was glorious
I’d give all I have for one just last encore…

SOLO: LT (acoustic) / LT / MARK

PRE-CHORUS 3:
Oh, it’s so long ago, it all feels like yesterday
The thrill of the show, this chill never goes away, no
In a heartbeat, a breath, all stolen away from me
A man, once with dream, once with life
Now it’s gone…

REPEAT CHORUS x2
9. Because We Can (1:58)
(instrumental)
10. The Chalkboard Prophet (8:13)
We think we know the answers
It’s there in black and white for all to see
Yet look beyond the madness
Another truth, another world for you and me

Show you open doors
To use your mind and think
Lead you to the shore
To the water, but you have to want to drink
And once I too was blinded
Believing what was told for all to hear
We’re all so simple-minded
Another lie, another life controlled by fear

Show you open thoughts
Oppression now defied
Reveal the truth, distraught
At the prophecy, our journey’s end is nigh

Condemn the crazy man
His eyes are filled with sadness
With chalkboard prophecy
Foretold, we turn away

SOLO: LT

Just walk on by
Don’t stare, don’t look him in the eye
His ranting insane, profane
Just turn and walk away

He’s seen on every city corner
A human wreck, around his neck a chalkboard sign
But is he mad or sent to warn us
To take control and save us all before it’s time

Tolling of the bell
A final desperate plea
Heed the tale he tells
I know the truth, that crazy man is me

Condemn the crazy man
His eyes are filled with sadness
With chalkboard prophecy
Foretold, we turn away

He’s just a crazy man
His mind is lost in madness
Are we too blind to see
That he’s the one who’s sane?
11. Battle of Venarium (8:36)
“It was a massacre that forever stands as a deathly warning to all civilised kingdoms. The unification of the clans to claim vengeance for the sins of the western nations marked the beginning of a life driven by a destiny known only to the gods…”

Born to lead, fated to be king
A dying breed, death amidst the din
Beyond these years, fifteen winters seen
Rising fears, Cimmerian war machine
Forces rage, the land of blackened skies
Ruthless pride, blood lust battle cries
Steel descends, wet blades will sanctify
Invasions end, this horror justified

Fate unseen, outraged they’ll bleed
Hate resounds, as one they’ll drown

Darkness soars on wingless flight, devouring the daytime light
Creeping through the northern haze, intensifying warring ways

“The barbarians emerged from the dark lands to destroy the invaders in ways never before seen…”

SOLO: MARK

“With sword in hand and strength ingrained, a conqueror amongst them strode forth with the aura of a king, destined for greatness…”

Fate unseen, outraged they’ll bleed
Hate resounds, as one they’ll drown

Darkness soars on wingless flight, devouring the daytime light
Creeping through the northern haze, intensifying warring ways
Reigning down this shadowed form, resurrection god reborn
Illusions of a grand empire, mocking this now dead desire
