Safe Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level
1. In The Abyss Of Desperation (5:32)
I wish I could free myself
Of the arrogance I had when I was younger
But the knowledge does not make up for the pain
For all the pain that I suffer
Nothing really works anymore
This proud machine is falling apart in decay
And the disparaging eyes that stare at me
Makes me want to die today

I know I breed contempt
I felt the same in my first stages
It's just another lesson
That you learn through the ages

I only rejected you to keep away from sorrow
I pushed you away to kill the future pain
To see all your loved ones disappear one by one
Would make an old fool like me go insane
Weakened beyond what I thought was possible
Defying my sense of imagination
I'm crying out from the abyss of desperation

I know I breed contempt
I felt the same in my first stages
It's just another lesson
That you learn through the ages
2. Silence The Freedom (7:05)
I never thought it'd come to this
The day when freedom was raped and torn
Burned into a cinder
And cast away for us all to mourn

...and if I disconnect sometimes
Just leave me be
If I should disconnect
Just plug me in and see

Freedom - Freedom - Freedom - Freedom!

You keep on giving in to demands
A paradoxical right they have abused
The parasite is slowly eating his host
When freedom dies, you stand accused

...and if I disconnect somehow
Don't you contemplate
If I should disconnect
Just plug me in and wait

Freedom - Freedom - Freedom - Freedom!

Condemn the atrocities committed in the name of the one
Not a trace of remorse to be found
Even if we know that man made god
Not the other way around

...and if I disconnect again
It's just that I'm sick of it all
So if you plug me in
I'll make you beg and crawl

Freedom - Freedom - Freedom - Freedom!
3. Complete (5:30)
But there was always something missing out there
There was always something I couldn't put my finger on
The driving force behind me wanting to be number one
Whatever it was, it is now gone

I have come to the ultimate understanding
That this one also has to pass away one day

You are the one to succeed me
You're the one who carry on my reason to be
But you also brought me the apathy to think it was all to no avail

I have finally become complete
You have made me complete
I could die happy, knowing
That I became complete

A veil of destruction crosses my path
And degeneration plants in me a growing seed
It is however but a fleck of dust to me
As you have made me
Helped me
Saved me!

My grand illusion of immortality
Was my youth that now fades away

I gave you life
I fueled the spark that created you
And marked the spot in the horizon, the end to my own tale

I have finally become complete
You have made me complete
I could die happy, knowing
That I became complete
4. From The Pain Of Loss ( I Learned About The Truth) (4:37)
Tired of pulling knifes out of my back
They say you reap what you sow
But where along the road did I do wrong
I guess I really just don't know

A boy, made man by lines - trenches that deepen day by day

In the dreamland between sleep and reality
On the verge of tears I hate
I have seen the truth
In the eyes of and angel of light
From the bottom of my aching heart

I'm sick of cleaning up after all your quarrels
They say you learn from your mistakes
So now I have to find where I go wrong, where I go wrong
I guess that's really all it takes

In the dreamland between sleep and reality
On the verge of tears I hate
I have seen the truth
In the eyes of and angel of light
From the bottom of my aching heart
5. A Lake That Drained (6:02)
Another soul departed today
A grieving fact that I have grown used to
Ashes to ashes and dust to what?
A ticket to oblivion when your dear ones follow you

Sickness drained the lake inside me
That I used to shed my tears
Sorrow and sadness in abundance
Left a desert through so many years

Gone forever, all but a memory
A grain of sand in a brief moment in time
The rain is pouring down, saddening me
As I listen to the sound of the church bell chime

Sickness drained the lake inside me
That I used to shed my tears
Sorrow and sadness in abundance
Left a desert through so many years

What is life but a flash of a switch in the light of eternity

Another soul departed today
Accompanied by the choir's song
Another soul departed today
It took a little part of me along

Sickness drained the lake inside me
That I used to shed my tears
Sorrow and sadness in abundance
Left a desert through so many years
6. Carrion Eaters (6:35)
Through the portrait you paint, you become the creator, you can destroy at will
The claustrophobic sensation increases
My freedom of speech has been sentenced to death
Before we know it, the sword comes out of its sheath

By the sculpture you mould, you become the creator, you can destroy at will
Level of stupidity increases the more, you choose
Your deity to decide for you
You actively seek discomfort and call for me to feel it too

Find and Destroy them all
For they have no right to live
Find and Destroy them all
For they have the nerve to think
Find and Destroy them all
For theirs are live to spill
Find and Destroy them all
You have his blessing to kill

Keep on believing and you shall receive
You will be filled by his power
But what is there left to believe, believe in nothing
When belief has turned sour

Through the fire you fuel, I become the destroyer, I choose to destroy!
I'm feeling cold, I have grown numb
There's nothing left inside this hollow shell
You killed the freedom and no one lives to tell

Find and Destroy them all
For they have no right to live
Find and Destroy them all
For they have the nerve to think
Find and Destroy them all
For theirs are live to spill
Find and Destroy them all
You have his blessing to kill
7. Safe (14:10)
[Searching]

So the search went on to find where the essence of things lay
Always on the prowl to discover the light of day
Somebody once told me that all good comes to he who waits
Hard to believe when the lung of life deflates

The only thing worse than losing you mind and being
Is to know about the fact that it is happening
So why do we keep on fighting when Death's cold embrace
Brings us nothing but nothingness... Still we carry on...

And my search always ends in Death!


[A Miracle]

Then came the day when it was time
To greet you with a "Welcome to the world"
I saw a miracle unveil before my eyes
The birth of a little baby girl

A picture says more than a thousand words
So here I am - look at me
Try to fathom the love you see in my stare
My blood, my love, my life

I'll fight for my miracle
I'll conquer for my miracle
I'll endure for my miracle
I'll die for you - my miracle

and I'd kill the whole world if I knew it'd made you smile
Down to the last of human kind
They've got supremacy in numbers
But I have an image of you in my mind...

So I look at my miracle and fill with pain
That I ever have to separate from you again
I think of my miracle and tears fill my eyes
As all my frustration fades and dies

I'll fight for my miracle
I'll conquer for my miracle
I'll endure for my miracle
I'll die for you - my miracle


[Fading]

I feel my days are growing shorter
And with that, a battle has begun
To live and breathe every moment with you
To stay with you under the sun

I planted a seed - the image of me
And now that you're here
I wonder about my own mortality

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder
So I am not objective, that's true
But you are the sweetest thing to gaze upon
And I bleed inside when I look at you

I planted a seed - the image of me
And now that you're here
I ponder my own immortality


[End(less)]

Now that nature can dispose of me
I ask myself, how can you go on
The answer lies in you
You made me SAFE
My life, my love, my blood...
