Draconian Times Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Enchantment (6:04)
Like a fever, fever - inside of me
Like a fever, fever - inside of me

Stand fast, faithful one
See the moon and not the sun but I......
All I need is a simple reminder

Breakdown frail affairs
Turn from the elsuive starts but I......
All I need is a simple reminder

Guilt is feeding, feeding, inside I'm cold

In depth grasp the chains
Struggle as the waters gain but I......
All I need is a simple reminder

Observe the formation fight until the battle's won
But I...... All I need is a simple reminder

There's no rule to say you'll cry alone
Just find the strength to help you carry the load
Reverse the frown and let the power surge
But when alone you cannot resist the urge

Feel it, feel it, like the pain of dying
Feel it, feel it, like the pain of dying

Hold on face to face damaged by the
sad disgrace but I......
All I need is a simple reminder

Twisting the knife in vain end the
grief but whol will gain but I......
All I need is a simple excuse
2. Hallowed Land (5:03)
You'd love to be so far away
It's not a long way to go, it's gonna end in your pain
Greet open handed stranger
Create the turmoil, you're not sane
I want the last one to go to embers will revive,
So stay

You want to live a life time each and every day

You've struggled before, I swear to do it again
You've told it before till I, until I'm weakened and sore

Seek hallowed land

You'd love to see right through my veins
The pale reflection tells all, predominations sustain
Crawl over land or mountain in
sight the ultimate escape
A silhouette subsiding, enticed unable to relate

You want to live a lifetime each and every day

You've beckoned before, you'll never do it again
You've prayed before who are the prayers for

Begone the fools that lead me - I need not to know
accept reclining spirit I need to endure
You try to live a lifetime each and every day
In this short time of promise, you're a memory......
3. The Last Time (3:27)
It's a struggle with a failures frown
And it crashes in front of me
I see the clouds divide
Will you stay or try to leave

The time you're looking at through the door
And think to walk right through
I want to ignore
I only wish that it passes soon

I raise a sunken smile
As I serve only the ones who served
What can I achieve
As you steal the air I breathe

A cruel misfortune
Forbidding is to see
When stories may collide
It's a sad state of mind

Hearts beating for the last time
Hearts beating it is a state of mind

Hearts beating for the last time
The peace you cannot find
4. Forever Failure (4:18)
You must feel frustration
Cause your mind feels such temptation
And your ways appear a total lack of faith

You may feel elation
At your body's re-creation
And that joy you need, restricted by one thought

Are you forever - loss of purpose in a passive life
Are you forever - pale, regarded as a waste of time

High times are courageous
But in truth they suit no purpose
Induced, reduced, unable and afraid......

Can you feel rejection
And a lack of motivation
And the joy you need restricted and delayed
5. Once Solemn (3:04)
Once solemn, the thing I'm leaving alone
Once solemn, the looks that turn one to stone
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the panic inside
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the fake promises

Your powers electrify me
Your prowess repels apathy
Your image can turn your soul to stone

Can't find another way
Can't find the words to say......

Unchaining the thing that's holding me down
And it's frustrating, the pressure's getting me down
And it's trying to live with a bad decision every day
It's a fever that's eating away in search for a fast release

Your powers electrify me
Devour the one that's guilty
Your image can turn a soul to stone

Can't find another way
Can't find the words to say......

Your powers electrify me
Devour the one who's guilty
Your prowess repels apathy
Your image can turn a soul to stone
6. Shadowkings (4:42)
A spiral movement, the ultimate mystery
Will you show....will you show who you are?

It's the truth that untrue suspicion is
spreading like a disease
Do you know if it is real?

Voices appear inside my brain
Their need, to set me free
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong

Encourage the madness they welcome impurity
I don't know....I don't know....who I am!
Fallen blind to the cruel hysteria that's
constantly challenging
Me, all alone...all alone... can't be real

Voices approve I can't relate
Their need to celebrate
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong

Voices approve, the quest begins
Fuel for the shadowkings
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong
7. Elusive Cure (3:21)
Take a pact, hide the fuel that's gathered here
Pale in view a fool resigns and taken over
Skin your pride , it's stripped and taken from you
Buried deep are the souls that are waiting for you

For you and only you, you may attempt to proceed
The sharpest point is aimed at you
Where the pain strikes is clear......

Regret, refrain, I can no longer bear it

Rising ages increase elusive cures
A morla life sacrificed, greed's taken over
Ride to take and the craving's buried deeper
Reaching out grasping arms that are waiting for you

For you and only you, you may attempt to proceed
The sharpest point is aimed at you
Where the pain strikes is clear......

Regret, refrain, I can no longer bear it
8. Yearn for Change (4:19)
Approaching a silence, a blur of subsidence

Time may heal all troubles, is that what I've found?
Joy entices all, until death's lonely shroud
But I know it's forever......

Praying for a change

Our lives leading onwards, the essence is stronger

Memories of life drifting further away I must doubt that where
There's a will there's a way......
But I know, it's forever

Life is all the pain we endeavour
9. Shades of God (3:55)
The fire is gone, a time to search and then replace
I'll never know just how the blind can lead the way

They search for faith, it shows the way...it leads the way
The distant smile, banished denial, no more denial

Are you the one who tries to send me to the grave
I cannot know who deals resent who deals the pain

Weak search for faith
A path to take, you tread in vain
10. Hands of Reason (3:58)
I speak of people whose game is disguise
The myth of flavour appears with no sign

'Cause I see it coming, like a long lost friend
A temple of rubble, the low and blind betray
Inane, the pleasures that leave a sorry state
You're told of treasures, indulgence cannot wait

but wait for tomorrow and steal some sanity
Insane thoughts are borrowed, unable to repay them back
As I now fall......fall into deprivation
Fall....fallen there's still tomorrow
Love hides the things you'll never know

A lack of reason that makes a mortal man
Untold the treason, the past where it began

'Cause I see horror, horror to think about
Insane thoughts are borrowed, unable to repay them back
As I see the blood, blood on the hands of reason
Blood, bloody the hands that lead me
Love for the ones you cannot know
11. I See Your Face (3:17)
Coming back today, the pounding thoughts relay
It's a time that's for myself
I'm laying low, strife is gaining slow
A kind of anguish I don't need......

When I see your frown, hurt will put me down
If I could see a light shining
Is this borrowed time maybe a final time
That I can see a light shining

Will you make it slow, pure evil makes it slow
I know you're brandishing the sign
Dare I take a chance? In this circumstance
Or will I leave without a hope
When you seal me fate sorrow turns to hate
If I can see a light shining
Is this borrowed time maybe a final time
That I can see a light shining

What one man makes is there for one to take
A single handed fall from grace
Hearts beating just, beating till the last
A draining feeling's all that I know

When I see your frown, it becomes my frown
If I could see a light shining
Is this borrowed time maybe a final time?
That I can see a light shining
12. Jaded (3:27)
Opaque the dissident establishment
That we all suffer
Refill the porous shell with words that mean so many things

Words mean so many things

The feeling can't avoid you

Stoking the fires of absence
Loss and anguish long departed
Adjust to changes re-arranging, burns in many ways

Pain burns in many ways

The feeling can't avoid you
