Alpha & Omega Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Wizards of Mind (3:15)
So long I've searched for answers to my life
The great mystery of being
I've yearned for validation from without
When I should have looked within

In every mind resides the soul, the second self
The you so seldom known
The you that holds the light to cut the blackness
You were born into long ago

We are all the wizards of our minds
And we each can work the spell
To open gates of deeper understanding
And to storm the gates of fate itself
2. New Machine (4:34)
Here I stand looking into you
No need to tell me what you're going through
Cause man I've been there myself

When life dealt out pain
I'd swallow it and hold it in
Then I learned to unlock the scream
Buried deep within
Now parts standing still are moving

Reborn as a new machine

Here I stand looking into myself
Reflecting on the times that I conquered hell
Prides swelling up within me

I hold the keys to lock away the stress and strain
I'll change the color of the rain
I've learned I hold that power

Power of a new machine
Living as a new machine
3. See the Light (7:56)
All you feel is pain
Huddled there in the dark
Looking for the last bad reason
To end it all
Well I've been watching you
In your self made hell
And you don't see the pain
You cause yourself

Won't you see the light?
Won't you see the light?

In a world of pain
There is always a way
Reach inside yourself
For the keys to a brighter day
And if you're ever afraid
Know that I'm by your side
You won't travel alone
I'll help you find the light

Won't you see the light?
Won't you see the light?
4. Reaching (3:15)
It's on the wings of sin that I've been flying
And your face is the sun that I have touched
And in the gardens of delight where I've been lying
Suddenly there's darkness instead of love

And now Eden's gonna fall

It's you that I looked to, to heal this heartache
And for a time you answered all my prayers
I was all too blind now Eden's fallen
My paradise was lost leaving me in tears

And now Eden's gonna fall
5. Eden Fallen (6:40)
Reaching for the heavens
But my hands are full of holes
The holes in my hands
Won't let me grasp the stars

Reaching for the heavens
But my hands are full of holes
The holes in my hands
Won't let me grasp the stars
So long I've been a dreamer
My head high up in the sky
But my wings wetted down
Would never let me fly

My arms are growing weary
Stardust in my eyes
My heart full of envy
Longing to be satisfied
Reaching for glory
Reaching for the sun
Reaching for the magic
That will make me one with the gods

Reaching for the heavens
But my hands are full of holes
The holes in my hands
Won't let me grasp the stars
For years my spirits traveled
Round the circles of beyond
It never will rest
It will carry on
6. Love Dies (5:19)
A bleaker day I've never seen
Reality has settled in
Cause when I look at you I'm sick inside
When I think that what we shared has died

Love dies... only pain survives

The cruelest of all illusions
Darkest of all deceptions
I naively believed that love transcends years
Now I gaze in terror as it disappears

Love dies... only pain survives

Love dies
7. Cold (6:36)
I've opened myself up
Exposed my vulnerability
Yet all you can do is sit there in silence
Leaving me empty

God forbid you should show some emotion
God forbid you should ease my pain
God forbid you allowed me security
That all my words have not been in vain

Goddamn you for silently choking me
Goddamn you you've frozen my soul
Goddamn you for keeping me hanging on
I burned for you yet you remained cold

I've risked much to love you
Yet you're content to take without giving
Drink in all my love
So smug in the knowledge
Like a fool I'll keep coming back again

God forbid you should open your eyes up
God forbid you should look at what's true
God forbid you attempted to right the wrongs
Of all the hell you're putting me through

Goddamn you for silently choking me
Goddamn you you've frozen my soul
Goddamn you for keeping me hanging on
I burned for you yet you remained cold
8. Drown Me... (7:40)
The memory lives in me to this day
I awake that morning to sorrow and to pain
I stand silent amidst the cries
Told your soul's been called
Robbed of all your guidance
When it was needed most

Drown me in a sea of empty
Deliver me to nothingness
Beyond the door where pain can't reach me
Drown me in a sea of empty

Never one to voice my pain so I tucked it away
And tears I never cried sit with me to this day
Sometimes I wish I couldn't feel
I'd feel your loss no more
Rip out my emotions
Cast them to nevermore

Drown me in a sea of empty
Deliver me to nothingness
Beyond the door where pain can't reach me
Drown me in a sea of empty

[Refrain]
9. Misery Song (5:11)
If you could see the world
In the same light as I do
But you don't
So you can't and you won't
You'll never understand my views
And I don't care
You can't relate
I'm past the point of hate
And you know it

I've got my heart on my sleeve
For you to love or hate
Put up or shut up
I ain't got time to wait no more
I ain't gonna waste my time
To see if your water turns to wine

A perfect picture hanging on a crooked wall
A house of cards just waiting to fall
The gilded keys are the way to hell
For you to buy or sell
But you can never tell
And I'm laughing

You know I can't resist
Gonna roll over you like you never existed
I smile while all the while
I'll put you up just to tear you down
Bleeding hearts only beat so long
I won't sing your misery song
No more
