The Wind-Up Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Breathless (3:50)
Pay back for what you stole from me
You are burning my eyes out with all your filthy lies

I am falling from a roof top and no one wants to catch
My body is a drop bomb who doesn't want to explode

Breathless
I can't breathe in here
Sleepless
Can't stand another nightmare
Hatred
Bring me awake - Take me away

Voices whispering
Drices me insane

Break me, break me, break me, break me with...

Spoiled dreams
For all eternity
Bring me the storm

Let the sun rise up
It's time for preparation
Convince me with hate
I am breaking through from behind

Breathless
I can't breathe in here
Sleepless
Can't stand another nightmare
Hatred
Bring me awake - Take me away
2. The Wind-Up (3:22)
Turn away
With lies and dismay
Burn it again
Repeating the patterns in vein

Waste - Dumped - Soil
Wind - Cold - Storms

Keep this progress
Until the world is undressed
Strangulation of mother earth itself
Then so be it - gather around the show
The wind-up of mother earth itself

Waste - Dumped - Soil
Turns into:
Wind - Cold - Storms

When will we understand
The time is short
When will we face the truth

Waste - Dumped - Soil
Turns into:
Wind - Cold - Storms
3. Forever Discounted (3:24)
Tortured with overwhelming pain
Never let go, never repent
Forever discounted

Under the surface there are a million ways to be
In your world the only way is yours
Keep it running before it may coagulate
Let me live my life, let me be

Prey for the life that you have wasted away
Try to regain some piece of mind from me instead

Instead

I can't breathe in here - Take me away
Can't stand another nightmare - Please take me away
4. Eternal Failure (2:42)
Burned paper faded in ashes
Cold silent night
Shadows lurking from behind
in the whispering wind

Like a child you're to blind, to blind to see
Tomorrow will be your eternal failure

Crawling for cover
Frightened of the dark
The blue lighted moon will soon be gone
Enter hysteric paranoia

Drained of gain
Settle for strength

Like a child you're to blind, to blind to see
Tomorrow will be your eternal failure

Cry out loud - "You've failed!"
Who would you blame as the scapegoat?
Drown yourself - "You're free!"
Shout out - "I've failed!"
5. The Judgement (5:01)
Grab the spoon
Dig out your mind
Build a new spectrum from the labyrinth inside

A cold rush of pain
Creeping in your chest
Bring out the hate let the barrier fall

Fumbling in the dark
Back to ground zero
Trapped
Reached the point of no return

Your mind is numb
Eyes pitched black
Blind

Read the signs
Because you already are

Lost - Find a new path
Raped - Far from all trust
Haunted - By your own friends
Brought - To the judgement
6. Cover It Up (4:03)
Crowd of people
All sorts of reasons
Fragile like doves
Be carried off by death - By Death

Cover it up
Take us down - Unlight the torch
Drown in out words
Whose fault is it? - Who is to blame?

Go on and take my life but you can't
Take my pride
Is the revenge still available to be had?
Fighting a struggle with death

A feeling of hunger
a sensation of cold
appeals to the emotions of fear

The frightening chills burns through your spine
Numbed by it's powers
I can't believe anything you're saying to me
Blame yourself
7. Dead Ends (3:09)
We listen - from our unconscious state of mind
On what we've lost in every broadcast
We follow - the stream to explore it all
Seven days has past and I'm still falling

Dead ends
Thrown back at me
Faded
(Into) another shape of grey

I have become to understand
Right on time
That I am trapped in this dead end
Forever more

Forced into submission
Run away from this misery

Right on time
Forever more
8. The Game (3:21)
Change it to the better
while you can
Collect the memories
of what's left...

Burn it down
Tear it apart
Smash it to pieces
Rip it apart

Bring a start to what's already begun
This is not a matter of time
Draw this pictures withing my head
Life if the name of the game I am losing

Fly
Fly, mother fucker fly

Acclaim: "Free like a bird"
When you lock me up in a cage
"Fly, mother fucker fly,
before I cut your wings to"
9. Stop those Waves (2:49)
With no look back
we're heading for that goal
Try - to make your way

tick - tick - tack
our time is running fast
"save your selves"

With no wat back
they'll catch us to their path
Try - to make a turn

Out of hand
It's out of hand
Stop - to make those waves

It is now to
stop those waves
It's time to make some change

With no way back
they'll catch us to their path
This is the wind-up
Of mother earth itself

Out of hand
It's out of hand
This is the wind-up
When will we understand

This is the wind-up
Of mother earth itself
This is the wind-up
When will we understand
10. Save the Day (1:28)
Collect the filth and sell it
Invent new shit to improve it
Build it to a pile
or ram it deeper down for miles

Turn up the heat and boil it
Proceed, but still you know it
Drain out all her life
When I burst out to the sun

Stop - The waves
Save the day again

Save the day

Build it to a pile
or ram it deeper down for miles

Turn up the heat and boil it
Proceed, but still you know it
Drain out all her life
When I burst out to the sun
11. Breed the Disorder (5:02)
Reality is a focused blur
Where insanity grows to its peak
Backstabbed with mischief
Unsatisfaction without control

Develop my scales
Be there

Breed the disorder
Rollin the dice, connect anti-pride
Capture its torn
Planting the seed, a handful of greed

Still life
Still hope

Let the sun rise up with me
It's time for preparation
Convince me with hate
I am breaking through from behind
