Mercury Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Undertow (6:02)
Something's changing
I feel
I see
Tearing me to dust
Stillborn laughter
My master is here

How do I know?
Undertow tells me so
Down I go

Hard-eyed mirrors
I look
I see
Longing to be air
Long time missing, but waiting around

How do I know?
Undertow tells me so

I'm lethal
So stay forever under arms
When only fear holds you together
You'll come dancing
Leave them all

Starving proudly
I sleep
I win
Gone with the wind
Fairyland waiting
If I'm small enough, I'll go in

How do I know?
Undertow tells me so
2. Under Another Moon (6:00)
The mist has covered my eyes
And whispers of sleep in my ear
The past has been swept off my hands
But I still remember your name

So lull me to sleep in your arms
Bestow your sweet kisses upon me
'Cause this love is all that I have
And I'll never long for more

Not going home

Time floats and the worlds pass me by
The air is thick and the moon has gone blind
Mind set adrift and my feet touch no ground
Banned from the dreamlands, I left all behind
All is lost, it can't be found
So weak here, I remember you
I can never find my way back home

Not going home
3. He Who Longed for the Stars (5:50)
He who longed for the stars
They would soothe him
In this painful world, no one is spared
He who longed for the stars
Their icy silence
Frozen eyes, just frozen, ice in his words

Come down

Where's the reason?
Who's to blame?
Well, my darling love, you left
just as unnoticed as you came
4. These Mortals Sins (5:15)
Oh, it's really alluring
These mortal sins of the flesh
I never toy with amusement
And I have no time for repent

Down over my head
Silence, nothing unpleasant has been said

Define me and touch me and kiss me
Pretend I am your puppet on a string
Pretend I am yours and fully tamed now
What joy lies in these smallest, lawless sins

Down over my head
Silence, nothing unpleasant has been said

Under this coating of caring
Awaits the manipulating self
I never thought you could fool me
And my tears are already spent
5. Grinding Silence (5:28)
...and when the ocean washed me up onto you shore, was I then saved?
Oh, loveable liar
You whispered tales to me at night, but how come you never gave them voice?

Staring into enticing darkness, you chose to close your eyes
I could never have predicted this loss of self and time

And I am crushed against your stone
(Under the silence, the grinding silence)

...and yes, time will float by, but never will it heal a single wound
You cannot remake this
You grind me to dust with your pain
Now, will you let me have mine?

And you, still standing there, swept in your moth-eaten pride:
I never wanted this to be
I never wanted this

And I am crushed against your stone
(Under the silence, the grinding silence)
6. Loss (3:45)
No one to trust or depend on no more
Nothing is left of what I found before
Tears of blood as I bury your name
Easier to deal with anger and shame

Cut the pleasure to the core
Am I scared or are you bored
Silently drifting, or on your shore
Why is it and who can tell for sure

Mouth made of sand and my heart made of stone
Nothing to say and the hands left alone
What did I do, did I hurt you sweet soul
All that I wanted was warmth, now it's cold

Like forever, the rain keeps falling
Down
Like forever, it hurts

Cut the pleasure to the core
My loss
7. Remnants (5:37)
Heaven knows I've not been good to you
Heaven knows I've not been true to you
Wasn't nice to cut you up
Wasn't nice to make you bleed

So much time and so much love
So much time and so much love

I'm on to your tricks
I'm on to you
Darling

So much time and nothing's left
So much love and nothing's left
Wasn't nice to cut me up
Wasn't nice to make me bleed like this
8. Misty Sleep (6:25)
See these bleeding hands that you left to dry
Your garden is stolen, your flowers died
Bow to your own deeds, bow down in shame
May the woods have mercy on your soul

Let the water flow again
Vapour rises in my eyes
Shedding my tears on the water
And watching them float into the fog

I sleep again
Come the shadows, drown the whispers
I dream away
Know tomorrow, let the night fall

And the shame is mine alone
Crawling into the deepest hole
Curling up around the core with closed eyes and clenched fists
And sinking down into my mindless rest

I sleep again
Come the shadows, drown the whispers
I dream away
Know tomorrow, let the night fall

Some say there's a shining path to follow when dark days come
But who needs that path when they're already here
And your candle is drowning in the rain

When the night falls
Misty sleep
For the sad ones
Misty sleep

They walk alone
9. Convertion (7:31)
When your hands speak, my body converted to ears
When you grasp for air, all my words undone

This is it

When your longing grows, I shall encircle you
Where the nights are old
Where the morning will not come

Hot breath on naked skin
Unconscious, mouth to mouth
I rest in confidence

When all time has gone and the mountains turned to dust
In the darkest of night, there is peace, my love, for us
