Hereafter Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. All Waters have de colour of Drowning
[music by: Bogdan Costea, lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

Please tell me crimson river
Is there a place where I
Should search your troubled waters
Please don't lie
It's been raining for three days
And the waters are now high
I can't find no crossing
I'm afraid I'll drown tonight

Wicked river, you don't care
You just follow your own course
While I weep upon your shore
You show me no remorse
While the spirits that you took are frowning
For me, it seems
All waters have the color of drowning

Evenings when I used to get back
Home again
I'd meet my love in this boat
On your wave
And damned be the moment
When my ring went down below
Then he smiled and said
"I'll get it back for you"

Now I wish that every river
Would just stop its flow
But I fear that this waters
Just won't let us go
Not now, not tomorrow, not until
We're all down there below
2. Turn to Stone
[music by: Bogdan Costea, lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, Ana Mladinovici & 6fingers, arranged by: Magica]

My memories lie carved
With words that formed in time
In the milestones of my life
All my mistakes are buried deep beneath
The mountain of my grief

Believe me
All that I ever was is now a blur
Believe me
From the burden cast upon my soul

Now
I turn to stone
And I watch the days go by
I turn to stone
And I will never die
Never, never die

You think I'm nothing but
A sentence on a tomb
In a graveyard without name
You may read my epitaph
But don't try to understand the nature
Of the face behind the frame
3. Through Wine
[music by: Bogdan Costea, lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

You sell your soul until your dreams are over
Ain't that a shame of a life?
You buy their lies and live in a world of shadows
But wicked words cut like a knife

I'm sick and tired of all the questions
That I always ask myself
I don't know what's wrong with me,
What is the answer, what's the key?

At the end of the bottle time is gone
Seconds crawling for the dawn
Your time ain't mine
And light races slower
Slower and slower
Through wine

All that you know is right in front of you
Someday they'll even steal your dreams
Your fate is sealed and there's nothing left to do
But taking life to the extremes
4. No matter what
[music & lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

I'm not the one who sneaks into the night
I'm not the one who's scared
When things don't turn out right
I'm not the one who's ready to resign
At every twist and turn of fate, or the divine

No, I won't run away
I'll never surrender, I'll fight
No, I am here to stay
The fire in me stays alight

No matter what I'll stand my ground
No matter what I'll be around
And if the Universe won't care
It matters not for me
Because in the end
I'll be free

Sometimes it gets so hard
And lights just fade away
Temptation shows its claws
And tries to change my way
There are moments where I cry
For justice in this life
A moment without flaws
But all I find is strife

But now, the things we have
They are so precious that I have to find a way
To break through and keep them forever
5. Entangled
[music & lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

I'm bound to walk that hill
On a deep and silent night of June,
And hear the song of the Dyad Moon
Along with my aching dreams
Comes a strange desire
And it seems my life is caught in a magic loom
Because I know for sure that in this night
For one reflection in the crystal lake
The night queen will awake,
And I made a plan with the silent wave
To cast entangled magic in a tune
And trap the song of the Dyad Moon

The Earth is dying so I will sing
A song that speaks of everything
To remind us of the things that matter most
Please uncover your disguise
And find the dream that lies
Within you, or the magic will be lost

Adorn me with flowers
White candles and sing me the tune
Let there be beauty and power
Entangled
In the night of the Dyad Moon
6. This is who I am
[music & lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

I'm tired of all your caring words
Your good intensions make me sick
They just don't fit my way
My entire life is in these chords
You'd better listen when I speak
And hear what I say

'Cause I am I
And no one can tell me what I need
Inside my mind
There's only one thing that I plead

You must know that everywhere I go
I'm not looking for excuse
And if my actions send me straight to hell
Then that is what I choose
But I know that everywhere I go
I'm the one that you'll condemn
But I don't care and if you did not hear me well
I shall scream
This is who I am!

I'm sorry if you don't approve
But this is what I have become
I shall not change my way
So from my view you'd better move
And you might just quit playing dumb
And hear what I say
7. The weight of the world
[music & lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

I've wasted so much time
Spilled so many tears
But I'm still waiting by your side
Waiting by your side
Days and weeks went by
Just holding your hand
In a truth from which I could not hide
But I know deep inside
That you will always hear me when I sing
Our song will reach through
And take you away on its wing

The weight of the world
Is falling on my back tonight
But what can I do?
Should I be counting on you
The weight of the world
Is killing me and I cannot fight
Can you assist?
Alone I cannot resist

I was waiting for the dawn
Just holding my breath
When they came and covered your eyes
I've been calling you alone
Trying to get you back
But you did not hear my cries

How I wish you could stay
And leave another day
I hate whatever gods that took you from me
And all I have left is

The weight of the world
Is falling on my back tonight
But what can I do?
Should I be counting on you
The weight of the world
Is killing me and I cannot fight
Can you assist?
Alone I cannot resist
8. Energy for the Gods
[music & lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

Still I live my life in a shade of a mystery
All I know proves false and vain
All the science learned
All the knowledge is for nothing
But a truth you can't explain

Feed on me, I've got
Fuel for ages
That you, you will steal against all odds
Feed on me, and then
Then close the cages
We are, we are just energy for the gods

You still search and wonder
Are we alone among the stars
In this terrible waste of space?
But you can't imagine
That we're a harvest since forever
Just a herd called human race

Energy for the gods
That call me
Energy, energy for the gods
Energy for the gods
That made me
Energy, energy for the
Gods
9. Shallow grave
[music by: Bogdan Costea, lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, Ana Mladinovici, Valentin Zechiu, 6fingers, arranged by: Magica]

You're dressed in black
Moon slowly fades
Behind the clouds that greater in
Isn't that a tear
I see
Rolling on your skin?
Isn't that fear?
Your eyes betray the sin

There is no one else around
To hear your crying

Rain is falling on my shallow grave
I'm the one you wouldn't save
Rain is falling on my shallow grave
Again

You won't find forgiveness
Don't even try
You know you will do it soon again
It's not about the blade
That cut open my vein
It is not about the blood
It's the lie we both lived in

But this is the end
Your long black hair covers the fallen leaves
The dark will descend
Over a story that
No one believes
All the wet autumn nights
Are charged with anger, you should behave
While the cold wet wind still bites
My specter hovers above
This shallow grave
10. I remember
[music & lyrics by: Bogdan Costea, arranged by: Magica]

Sometimes I get a strange feeling
Like nothing I know matters to me
A terrible truth somebody's concealing
Unveils its cloak of mystery

Like in a fairytale
I was walking a fantasy land
Say what you want to me,
I know you will not understand

'Cause
I remember a day
Remember a tear
I can't the words to say
What I have done to be cast here

I must have done something forbidden
In this paradise of silence and will
I tried to reveal that which is hidden
In the depths of my soul and make it real

I remember a day that makes me hate this life
I remember a day that makes me want to die
11. Into silence
[music & lyrics by: 6fingers]

My head
On a pillow
On a bed
Like lead
Where all has been tried
And everything said
With no feeling inside
And no future ahead

In this god-forsaken land
In my life so second-hand
I am chasing my thoughts out the window

I am losing balance
Of body and mind:
Such a strange alliance
Sometimes...
To this blandness
I'll be finally blind
And I will see...
From the ashes of the real
To the blazes of my will
Glimpse the unthinkable!

I am losing balance
Of body and mind:
Such a strange alliance
Sometimes...
To this blandness
I'll be finally blind
And I will see...

Slipping into silence (Soaring on a dream)
Leave all behind
Seeking guidance (Following a beam)
From the Sandman
In defiance (Seeing the unseen)
Of my earthly bind
I'll fly away
Find my way back home...
