A Light in the Dark Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. A Light in the Dark (5:29)
Shadows in a dark place lurk inside the walls
Hiding from daylight hiding from us all
Windows of a past life, reflections hard to find
Memories of lost days, etch their place in time
Anger and frustration, diseases of the mind
Just like the evils, the evils of mankind
Submerged and frozen, in this icy hell
Reaching for tomorrow, what will the fortune tell

Light transcends into our memory, dark descends upon the misery
When soulless spirits grasp the beating heart
Remember there is a light in the dark

Blessed our the visions of ones who have dared
Healing the masses with the crosses they bear
The dawn of creation is where it begins
The privilege of power gives the privilege to sin

Screaming for some sanity, drift like a lost soul
Curse on all humanitym the worlds lost control
Inside out reality, we're victims of a crime
Innoncence has since been lost, we've all been left behind
2. Beyond All Reason (5:40)
Curse the man, curse the prophet, worse the man without any eyes
Play the madman, play the poet, some say he hides in a perfect disguise
Less the man that heeds no warning, and lets the sand run through his hands
His fingers stiff with anticipation, as he plots his next feeble plan

Beyond all reason, he holds the key to life
A change of season, all answers in due time
No rhyme or reason, a product of mankind
But he's not the only one, he's just the lonely one

Since ancient times we've bowed to leaders, leaders only by their command
Banned together a bond of freedom, from their rule and master plan
Take the greed, take the power, hold the ring within your hand
Seize the crown and wield the dagger, it's the path of every man

Slipping through the cracks of the system we have made, staring at life as we fall
Remembering places and pictures in time, surprised that we have made it at all
Looking for heroes and praying to gods, uttering secrets we keep
Hope for redemption and someone to blame, the price that we pay is too steep
3. Mirror of Lies (4:27)
When you look at yourself you can see a bewildering soul
A shell of a once stable man who's lost all control
You've journeyed so long now you've sealed all your plans
But when you look at your reflection you try to understand

In the mirror of lies

From the mystical gates of your past to the depths of the sea
No matter how hard you try things will be what they will be
When looking for secrets just close your eyes
You're searching for the answer but the answers are inside

In the mirror of lies

The spell is broken the scars will fade reflections of mistakes
You once made a pawn or a token
A king or a thief gaze into the mirror and believe
4. Disappear (6:03)
In this lost and lonely place is where I call my home
Four thick walls surrounding me I pay a heavy toll

I'm pushing and pushing trying to claw my way back
Wishing, wishing I could disappear just like that

There is this voice inside my head turns from friend to foe
When will all this madness stop neither of us knows

How did I get this way how could I get this far
Was this the master plan was it written in the stars
For me to live my life as a pessimistic fool
A superficial man the exception to the rule
Mark your words and you will see the price
That I have paid the cost of life the wounded soul
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

The hands have stopped out on the clock I'm on the astral plane
The things I've done won't be forgot my image still remains
5. The Believer (5:33)
A taste of fear in the recipe as he stirs the potion up
Flirting with the other side enough to call his bluff
As the flames and the smoke grow thick a figure begins to rise
Looking up it says to him, "Son you must decide"

Caught up in evil 'cause he's too blind to see
Now he's the believer and the believer deceives

Into the void of his memories lie the answers
Why he finds a friend in the need to sin
It makes him feel alive but the path he's on
Will lead to hell for that he must repent but after all
The damage done the devil's new servant

He don't know what he believes
6. Temples of the Sea (9:48)
The pages turn themselves as if to speak to me
A vision not so civilized a sight no one has seen
A king who's fate is sealed by prophecy and pain
Modern man knows nothing, it's time I board my train
The wasteland that's before me leaves me cold inside
I long to reach the ocean and the secrets that it hides
The rivers have all dried up yet covered by the sea
The memories of children playing
And prayers that have been set free
The ancient temples washed away foundations of belief
No written word to tell the tale, another missing piece
As I touch, as I see, it's still a mystery
When I find what I seek
Who will we be?
It's all myth and memory, these temples of the sea
And still there's no answer
We search for the answers
Another night I walk alone, tormented by the thought
A world remains unknown to us, a land that time forgot
Our future could be in the past, and proof before our eyes
We cannot ignore the truth and cast it all aside
They're leaving the world they leave without warning
Standing together a new day is dawning
One giant puzzle with no explanation
Can someone tell me is it imagination
Only to find the secrets unfold
With nothing left but these fallen towers of stone
Fire falling from the sky, burning all I see
No place to run no place to hide
I hear a million screams
Now we say our goodbyes, only fear in our eyes
As we fall to our knees
Our world is claimed by the sea
7. Pill for the Kill (4:30)
Black night step into madness lose sight against your will
Last night begging forgiveness for that one time thrill
Black night another prescription take 10 to ease the pain
Last night another deception you think you're going insane

Demons rising as you cast them away little pills of color make them stay
Just another pill have you got your fill
Just another pill a pill for the kill

Your lost far from enchantment you found a better way
Comatose another dependent another sad, sad day
You're back, back with a vengeance you want to score again
So string higher than ever with a Cheshire grin

Here, take this and everything will be fine, trust me
8. Son of the Son (4:44)
Stabbing through the wind and rain all aboard the nowhere train, the calm before the storm surrounds you
In between the here and now, somewhere in the lost and found, a king without a crown who shows no mercy
Close your hands and bow thy head, cleanse the wounds of the dead, face the fear and all within your soul
Tell a tale of mystery, drowning in an endless sea, hanging by a thread you cling to life
Break the chains there are no rules, be the leader not the fool, the powers that be demand you
To have the knowledge and the strength, to help the worthless and the weak, to be the power in all that condemns you

You've got to heal your wounded mind secure your place in time you're of the one a son of the sun

Ride upon the angels wings, listen to the heavens sing, praise the master till your dying day
Pay the piper, pick your battles, fight before your life unravels reaching for the stars above you
9. More than Your Master (4:49)
Before the walls begin to fall, before the end it takes us all,
You know we're running out of time but moving faster
When will we ever heed the call, will we heed it one and all,
You know we've always been our own walking disaster

And when you look around you have found it's more than just your master

When the buildings were ablaze, and the height of terror raised, by fire we watched them burn into black skies
The world's living in denial, every woman, man, and child, our children running scared and asking why
10. Blinded by Life (3:33)
In a web of confusion you're strangled by your fear
A hopeless situation you've been in for years
No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
Always defending mistakes that you've made

When you're lost on the wrong side and you're feeling no pain
You plead for absolution but nothing's left to gain
You're far from the truth and you're near to what's right
Make a decision without losing sight
You're blinded by life and the mask is your darkness
Blinded by life with one foot in the grave
Blinded by life and you hide in the darkness
Blinded by life with one foot in the grave

We want a perfect world we want the silver spoon
But if there was we'd find a way to reduce it into ruins
We're picking up the pieces we're always playing a game
One day we'll realize we are all to blame
11. Watch the Children Pray 2006 (5:50)
In a darkened graveyard glows a light.
I see it shine there every night.
I know somewhere there's a hidden door.
There's an answer here we must explore.

No, I'll not submit to reason.
I'll sit and watch the seasons change.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

We hold our fate and make the choice,
But we'll not listen to that still small voice.
Are we just crazy, out of our minds?
Wish this were someplace, another time.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And now to life we say goodbye.
I know the when but not the why.
Our nation's blood spills on the ground.
Our lives go out without a sound.
