Architect of Lies Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. New Desire (4:57)
Don't speak
Before you start to run
Don't die believing
Silence
Hide it deep inside
To be the question

Turn to understanding
Of the difference in between
To see what lies beneath me
And try to set the scene

Be yourself
Save yourself

My life is fading
All is lost
Turning to see you
My desire

Lay down
You won't be seen or heard
Don't think you're something
Revenge
Prepare to take your stand
Break free the silence

Turn to understanding
And the nothing turns to you
You scream your name but you're voiceless
And the something speaks to you

Be yourself
Save yourself
My life is fading
All is lost
Turning to see you
My desire
Your voice
Inside me
That scream
Still haunts me
And I will bleed your name
I'll reach the point in time
That dream
Still haunts me
The empty
Despair
And I will bleed your name
I'll reach the point in time

I'll bleed your name
I'll reach the point in time

My life is fading
All is lost
Turning to see you
My desire
In disguise
It's incomplete now
Inner lies
My new desire
2. Bloodsong (4:47)
Through the dreaming lights
Into darkness of nightmares
To the endless hollow
I shall go
From happiness to sorrow
From something to nothing
From the beginning to the end

You see my truth and see my name
I will believe in you and you will succumb to me
See my truth and see my name
And I will know you
And I will drain you dry

All is fading
All is lost
The endless never
The blood night
The darker shadows
And the darkest night
The endless never
The blood light

As my life fades out
As death kicks in
Will I regret my life
Of sin
From punisher to punished
From master to slave
To my endless grave

You see my truth and see my name
I will believe in you and you will succumb to me
See my truth and see my name
I will believe in you and you will succumb to me
See my truth and see my name
And I will know you
And I will drain

All is fading
All is lost
The endless never
The blood night
The darker shadows
And the darkest night
The endless never
The blood light

Take me away
Far from this day
And let me stay
And believe in my shadow

All is fading
All is lost
The endless never
The blood night
The darker shadows
And the darkest night
The endless never
The blood light
Fading black
The endless never...
Fading black
The endless never...
3. Embrace The Nothing (4:51)
Listen
And I'll try make you see
Listen
I'm tired now
It's timeless
And it's growing every day
And frameless
In every way

Free again
Bleed my truth in timeless sand
Free again
I'll believe and understand
Your world
Be your world
Bleed again
I am nothing in your eyes
Bleed again
To regain myself and feel
Your world

Embracing the nothingness and...

In my cold dark emptiness
I will save you
Or repay in recklessness
In the nothingness
To my deep and dark demand
I'll betray you
And destroy your hopefulness
Innerlines
Leading me astray
Inner lies
Taking me away
It's pointless
Shrinking day by day
Eventless
In every way

Free again
Bleed my truth in timeless sand
Free again
I'll believe and understand
Your world
Be your world

Bleed again
I am nothing in your eyes
Bleed again
To regain myself and feel
Your world
Save your wold

In my cold dark emptiness
I will save you
Or repay in recklessness
In the nothingness
To my deep and dark demand
I'll betray you
And destroy your hopefulness

Free again
Bleed my truth in timeless sand
Free again
I'll believe and understand
Your world
Be your world

Bleed again
I am nothing in your eyes
Bleed again
To regain myself and feel your world
Save your world
4. This Black And Endless Never (5:40)
I am falling
To see what's left behind
I am fallen
To you I must be blind
Is this the blinded calling?
Is this the mindless falling?
It's me
It's me
Open your mind
And please forgive me when I die

I am the Architect of Lies
Into the nothing I will fly
This black and endless nothing
The white and pointless something
In me
In me

To be nothing
To have an empty mind
To be lost and
To see the truth benign
Is this the path I'm choosing?
My friend I think
I'm losing
To you
To you

Open your mind
And please forgive me when I die

I am the Architect of Lies
Into the nothing I will fly
This black and endless nothing
The white and pointless something
In me
In me

Enter my selection
I will show you desolation
You will fall
You will fall
You will fall
You will fall

I am mind
I am

I am the Architect of Lies
Into the nothing I will fly
This black and endless nothing
The white and pointless something
In me
In me

I am the Architect of Lies
Into the nothing I will fly
This black and endless nothing
The white and pointless something
In me
In me
5. Isolation (The Loneliness in December) (6:03)
So hear me now
This weakened voicing
Listen one last time
It is dying
Here at the end I am
Watching closely
Afraid to see you
Afraid to be

So here it is again
This loneliness of mine
I can't seem to find you
I don't believe you're there
Is this your hand?
Is this the turning?
I need to say I lost you
I need to say goodbye

And save me from this blinding night
Of nothing
Save me from the dying
Save me from my god
Choose to find salvation in the sorrow
I hope to see you laughing
Laughing at the end

So here it is again
This loneliness of mine
I can't seem to find you
I don't believe you're there
Is this your hand?
Is this the turning?
I need to say I lost you
I need to say goodbye

I'm standing here in line
Hoping to see
My dreams are intertwined
I'm here by your side
So here it is with me
This old friend of mine
I'm trying to break free
I'm here by your side

So here it is again
This loneliness of mine
I can't seem to find you
I don't believe you're there
Is this your hand?
Is this the turning?
I need to say I lost you
I need to say goodbye
6. The Endless Fall (5:08)
I
Am the essence of ignorance
The destroyer of innocence
Stand by watch you take he fall

And I
I will cut into you my peer
And reveal your darkest fear
As a river of blood you will flow

Look into my eyes
I am the one
I will defy

Looking into an endless mirror
Seeing nothing the end becomes clearer

Feel me now as I (Your soul and your dignity)
Steal some how the fall and I (Your system will fail)
Make you surrender
As I surrender

Now
Now the silence begins my friend
It's the cold, dark and bitter end
Stand by watch it fade watch it fall

Now
Now your fear is reality
All your dreams you will never see
Endless darkness surrounds you now

Is it cold now, my friend
Can you feel it?
This is the end

Looking into the endless never
Seeing into the darkness forever

Feel me now as I (Your soul and your dignity)
Steal some how the fall and I (Your system will fail)
Make you surrender
As I surrender

Your soul is mine!

Feel me now as I (Your soul and your dignity)
Steal some how the fall and I (Your system will fail)
Make you surrender
As I surrender
7. Black and Hollow (4:50)
I saw you laughing
Saw your tears decay
I heard you speak to me
Washed my smile away

We're failing
It's failing
These twisted thoughts inside of me
They are failing

I can feel this tragedy
Pure and simple tragedy

Grey!

So break my twisted world
It is the only way
And take these chains of gold
And let me die this way
Please believe me
I lost my soul today
My friend it's ending now
There's nothing left to say

I can feel this tragedy
Pure and simple tragedy

We're failing
It's failing
These twisted thoughts inside of me
They are failing

I saw you laughing
Saw your tears decay
I heard you speak to me
Washed my smile away

I can feel this tragedy
Pure and simple tragedy
8. Execution Style (5:50)
Turning the nights, into your darkness
Dreams of the never, screaming for more
Searching for answers, searching for meaning
Searching for life, as your life fades away

Turning your answers into your lies
Twisting the truth, the truth you deny!

Grasping to this
Hope I have
In between my dreams
I dream

Free in this maze
Calling you
In disgrace
Falling

Falling through lies, falling through pain
Into the night, you're falling through rain
Into the never, darkness forever
Feeling the cold, the shameful shiver

Feeling the shame, you are becoming heartless
My friend you lost, execution style!

Grasping to this
Hope I have
In between my dreams
I dream
Yeah!

Free in this maze
Calling you
In disgrace
We will fight
To believe
In ourselves
'till we die trying

[The Architect speaks:]
"I've never felt sorry for anything that I've done, other than hurting my family
Only thing I feel sorry for
I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm not repenting
No. I'm wrong. I'm wrong
I do want my family to forgive me
This would never be me, this!
You see the Architect cry, not very macho but...
I've hurt people that mean everything to me
The only people that mean anything to me"

And so you fail
Being so frustrated
You will fail
Try to set your mind free
You will fail
Turning empty pages
Life is stale
Time will only show

You've taken all my dreams away
Destroy yourself and let it fall astray

Free in this maze
Calling you
In disgrace
We will fight
To believe
In ourselves
'till we die trying
9. I Am Lies (5:43)
This is where it ends
And this is where it all begins
So step right along my friend
I will let you know my name

Disappear in crystal shades of grey
Believe in nothing
Losing all you have in life
Will teach you nothing

You stand alone my friend and I
Will hear you calling out but I

I am
I am
You will be blinded by fame
Enter my selection
Show me desolation
And I will hear your shame
And so you die

And so it all begins
My death connection
You lose your perception
Embrace the non divine

Reappear and speak your final peace
Relieve yourself
Believe in all you see before you
Believe in me

You stand alone my friend and I
Will hear you calling out but I

I am
I am
You will be blinded by fame
Enter my selection
Show me desolation
And I will hear your shame

Lie for lie, I realize
Eye for an eye and the world turns blind
You are paralyzed, nothing to gain
By hiding behind your shame
Creating structures and lies that ruptures
I am the Architect of Lies
Lies
The Architect of Lies

You stand alone my friend an I
Will hear you calling out but I

I am
I am
You will be blinded by fame
Enter my selection
Show me desolation
And I will hear your shame
10. Public Failure Number One (5:00)
So now I turn my face
And see you cry
Ad thus I crawl
Crawl in line

I raise my hand and try to
Speak but I
Feel so numb

I lost my soul today and I'm...

Lost to all salvation
Failure is my name
My voice is all but silent now and I
Turn away from
Hoping
Hoping
My head is all but empty now and I
Hold on to your lie

I raise my head and see you
Once again
You're losing faith
Losing faith
I picture all you told me it's frozen
In my mind
Slow decline
Slow decline

So you scream
And I see you
Failure I will believe
My life is all but lose

Failure I will listen
To a mind that's broken
To reach the path unspoken
To see what I have chosen

Failure I will listen
To a mind that's broken
To reach the patch unspoken
To see what I have chosen
