Nevermore Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. What Tomorrow Knows (5:11)
Dreams lie smashed again
They've pinned your back to the wall
Like faded pictures of what might have been
Fate is cruel when dreams, like candles, fade
Smashed again down into the gray
Despise for a world turned cold
No one sees what tomorrow knows

There's a shame in blind suffering
Dishonor from the inside
Find hope from the voice within
Clear vision of your own mind

Mistakes you wear like your skin
You wish you'd never been born
Stand up, you can't escape your past
But fools will try just to forget
From where they came
Smashed again down into the gray
Despise for a world grown cold
No one sees what tomorrow knows

No more color to will to fade
To see life clearly, regretful nevermore
Take the time, make the time

There's shame in false victory
Dishonor from the inside
False pride, all you can't redeem
Clear vision of your own mind
2. C.B.F. (6:03)
Blank, their state of mind
The apathy they find leads them into nothing
Rotting away, another lost sight today
Swallowed into the nothing again

Killing yourself, killing your will to be
But you don't give a damn
Just numb the pain

The tightrope now is tread
Ambition lying dead, lost in the fire so numbing
Numbing decay sucks your will of life away
Lost in decay you number your days

Swallow the fire, breathe in the black
Just one more hit could kill
Fulfill the death wish in you
Swallow the fire, breathe in the black
Another life is wasted, another death is tasted

If all the words I've said
Could get inside your head
Numb to the world of daylight
Kill the decay, usher in the light of day
Free from the fire you're finding your way

And if you choose to live this way
I'll count the days 'til you're gone
And if you choose to live this way
I'll shed no tears when you're gone
3. The Sanity Assassin (6:21)
See the man of hungry mind
Never had a dream to call his own
His sin in form of thought
He lived to milk the minds of the blind
To rule the sea of imagination

And the sanity assassin
Is coming down to steal your mind
So he takes an innocent's vision
The blind lead the blind, they say
Meet the sanity assassin
A trick of mind or the devil's whim
On the way to tomorrow's dream
He's fading away

See the man with the empty soul
Never had a face or will of his own
So he took another's pride
And he made a mask of faults
Defensive anger and false emotion

And the sanity assassin
Is coming down in a stream of black
So he takes what he cannot live
The black leads the blind astray
Meet the sanity assassin
A trick of mind or the devil's whim
On the way to tomorrow's dream
He's fading away

Sing your sweet poison, stealer of dreams
Bleed your sweet anguish and the form of dreams are born

Don't be afraid to dream outside the lines
Don't be afraid of painting pictures within your mind
Don't be afraid, your path is not of sorrow
Don't be afraid, dreams are immortal

Rise in the coming tide
Wave after wave of sleep crushing down
Hopes of the weakened and knowing
Awash in the undertow, falling away

Listen as the tale begins to now unweave
The will of strong mind he'll never deceive
I speak the words to lay me down, I am ever strong
Against the all-knowing thief of imagination

Dreams are immortal
4. Garden of Gray (4:48)
When the moon is high across the garden
That's when I'll come to you
When the nightshade blooms in your eyes
Let my sin pour in you
When the forest sings like an angel's choir
I'm coming nearer

I want to feel your flesh enrapture me
And live the politics of ecstasy

In the garden there is no fear
In the garden of gray we can disappear
In the garden where I can feel
In the garden, to touch you is so surreal

If the moon should pour out of the sky
And fill your livid pools
If you lay your hands on me gently
You won't be misconstrued
When you feel the shiver of lust grow deeper
I'm coming for you

I want to feel my senses sing to me
You are the music in my ecstasy

I want to love you in the garden of gray
Where we can stop the time and drink the ecstasy
And when it's done, just traces of the glow
The sparkle in your eyes is ecstasy
5. Sea of Possibilities (4:19)
Here I come again like the sun
The question on your thoughts' horizon
The quest is in learning theology
Pouring logic and opinion in me

One step closer
Everything comes back to you in time
One step closer
Some will find the answers
Some submit to aggression

From the dust of Adam's rib she hides
The muse in my tragic comedy of lies
Sharpened emotions imprison me
Stagnant revulsion for society

Come with me, sail the sea of possibilities
In liquid karma, I don't mean to alarm you
But the future is not written in stone
6. The Hurting Words (6:17)
Sometimes it's so hard to show the way you feel
Sometimes it seems like the words aren't real
Sometimes it makes no difference what you're trying to say
When all the words come out wrong anyway

I've said too many words to catch them all in time
I've used the hurting words that took away your shine

Sometimes you can't keep from falling in
Obscuring waters, against the stream we swim
Sometimes I feel like drowning just to make you say
All of the words you never want to say to me now

I've said too many words to catch them all in time
I've used the hurting words that took away your shine
I've said too many words to make you, make you understand and see
There's far too many things that you and I can't say

Sometimes it's so hard to show the way you feel
Sometimes you know the words you say aren't real
Sometimes I hate myself for hating things in you
And there's no words to heal, heal all my wounds now
7. Timothy Leary (5:12)
A wise man came across the sea
In search of LSD philosophy
With open heart and open mind
To find the goodness in mankind
Bare your soul and you're saved
Believe the chosen that dreams in rage

Chemicals improve the view
Visions now have bloomed in you
Windowpane is suffered bliss
A psychedelic kiss
Show to me your ideology
Do you perceive or are you sleeping?

Timothy Leary, where are you now
The world needs you, we're going down

In translation they used the key
Altered visions, Tao Teh Ching
Open sky to paint their dreams
And see as did Lao Tzu
Melt away all the hate and pain
Mission is clear, awake the dreaming

Go to sleep child, and dream

When Timothy Leary first started speaking out in the sixties people didn't understand what he was trying to say, some people
didn't want to understand him, the establishment wanted to kill him, they wanted to suppress him, squash him like a bug, we
always want to kill what we do not understand, all he was trying to say was that we need to realize our inner harmony, to see
things in a different way, to truly be free...

Electric religion
8. Godmoney (4:44)
Hey, just what have you become
With a cash vindication
Do you think that buys salvation's end?
Do you see through me?
I'm the plastic face on you screen
Mind control

They say that we're in the final days
Religion is power
Because most of us feel like rats in a maze
Do you worship me?
I'm a bastard saint, I'm a sycophant
A parasite that lives for just one goal
Mind control

Send your money to Jesus Christ
Mail order your eternal life
Bend your mind, make you turn around
Don't believe it when they tell you
That eveng god needs money
God needs money from you

Shame can't even make them learn
They feed off the weak
And if there's a hell they're gonna burn
On your screen they worship me
I'm a bastard saint, I'm a sycophant
A parasite that lives for just one goal
Mind control

Hey, just what have you become
With a cash vindication
Do you think thy buys salvation's end?
Do you see worship me?
I'm a bastard saint of the color green
