Defiant Imagination Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Silence Calls the Storm (5:03)
[Lyrics: Bercier, Music: Frydrychowicz]

Unbalance starts to rise within the population, revolution begins
A hunger for power is launched, their dreams: becoming the leader of the
alliance
A hidden disturbance is felt throughout the community, its force augments
The stakes are increasing, tension is high, a clash of the titans
begins to shed reality on the realm

Guidance ignored, they strive to acheive thier goals

Opponents will grow
they will plan a future
Disregarding lives
to focus on their desires
The end of a race begins

Allies will assist
honour is revealed
Some will return
others will rest in war
A new world defined in tears

A new world defined in tears

Trying to acheive order in the senate: seeking the moles
Members are few who do provide separately, aiming to conquer vengeance of man
Rebels increase their offense, they wear their masks to climb the ranks
their plans rehearsed, the walk alone soldeirs see the paths intent
They disagree but voiceless words are heard

Guidance ignored, the wisdom is overlooked

Opponents will grow
they will plan a future
Disregarding lives
to focus on their desires
The end of a race begins

Allies will assist
honour is revealed
Some will return
others will rest in war
A new world defined in tears

A new world defined in tears

[solo: Frydrychowicz]
[solo: Seghers]

Undercover violence with worshipping power
unrestricted support for loyalty at large

Answers are few, questions open ended
conflict nearby, the pressure is rising
Violence closing in on the inhabitants
Silence Calls The Storm
2. In Contempt (3:35)
[Lyrics & Music: Frydrychowicz]

Committing to sound
what words will not express
What lies can not divert
and rip into shreds

Living snapshots of events,
A violent maze of lies
Like shadows standing still

A testimony of accusations
carving out a frozen landscape
fills with twisted form,
and frozen faces....
Cowards!
and frozen faces

The arrogant and hollow crumble
beneath the boots of truth
like silence standing still

A testimony of accusations
carving out a frozen landscape
fills with twisted form,
and frozen faces....
Cowards!
and frozen faces

A crumbling image, an empty shell
lies of which sustain
like statues standing

[solo: Frydrychowicz]
[solo: Seghers]

Committing to sound
what words will not express
What lies can not divert
and rip into shreds

Arguments ablaze!
the stress turns the minds alive!
Alive!
3. Break the Cycle (6:05)
[Lyrics & Music: Frydrychowicz]

[solos: Frydrychowicz]

The road to hell is paved
with good intentions
Dreams can only sustain for so long
turning away with apprehension
life passes you by
Trip over another lost cause

Life goes on.....

Open your eyes, Break the Cycle
Open your eyes, Alone in the crowd (of unscrupulous minds)
Open your eyes, Break the Cycle
Open your eyes, Open your mind

Hours turn into days of endless struggle
on the road to nowhere
What was once clear, now a distant shadow
why effort is not enough
to stop the tide from washing you away

Lifes goes on....

The acrid smell of deciet
the fuel that transforms notions into sound
Absorbed and fused, minds cofused
into catalytic tone...
Condems and decries the mistakes
and the lies, and the pain

[solo: Seghers]
[solo: Frydrychowicz]
[solo: Seghers]

The road to hell is paved with good intentions,
dreams can only sustain for so long
Open your eyes,
and break away from your restraints
Let the blind guide your path no more

Open your eyes, Break the Cycle
Open your eyes, Alone in the crowd (of unscrupulous minds)
Open your eyes, Break the Cycle
Open your eyes, Open your mind

Hours turn into days of endless struggle
on the road to nowhere
What was once clear, now a distant shadow
why effort is not enough
to stop the tide from washing you away

Life goes on
to the road to hell
to rest, after life in pain
4. Tunnel Effect (Element of the Ensemble IV) (5:39)
[Lyrics: Bercier, Music: Frydrychowicz]

[Present:]

I feel the fear reveal its core
A darkened past caused by inner war
The years have come and gone and i see
the Inner Capsule still haunting me

The future must hold a brighter end
I must prevail, I must descend
The intervention run from within
to annihilate my future sins

The stars above are shining down
The crying voices, i hear their sound
I feel a journey come to an end
The faces revealed, I make amends

Like a dark-world warrior who sees the light of day
fights inner demons to control the right of way

A new journey is about to begin
... as the Ensemble calls for me
Many dreams to be fulfilled
... as the Ensemble calls for me
The years to come will bring new life
... as the Ensemble calls for me
Their purpose lies within the stars
... as the Ensemble calls for me

Element, the Element, the Element surfacing
a challenge of mental strength overtakes the mind

As I seek for the quantum leap
The elements plan their retreat
I see a pattern begin to form
in the dead of night, my soul reborn
With hopes that a sense of purpose and love
will descend upon me from the eyes above

Like a dark-world warrior who sees the light of day
fights inner demons to control the right of way

A new journey is about to begin
... as the Ensemble calls for me
Many dreams to be fulfilled
... as the Ensemble calls for me
The years to come will bring new life
... as the Ensemble calls for me
Their purpose lies within the stars
... as the Ensemble calls for me

[Past:]

Wonder if i'll be among the troops who'd risk their lives
Defend the sash of honour, fight for truth, have them rise
To form a coalition, have the enemy turn to dust
Will combat solve the conflict?
Which side will I grow to trust?

Which side will I grow to trust?
Which side will I grow to trust?

[Present:]

Like a dark-world warrior who sees the light of day
fights inner demons to control the right of way
Like a warlord spreading the word: Increase in power
With eyes wide open, the spirit craves to conquer

A new journey is about to begin
... as the Ensemble calls for me
Many dreams to be fulfilled
... as the Ensemble calls for me
The years to come will bring new life
... as the Ensemble calls for me
Their purpose lies within the stars
... as the Ensemble calls for me

Element, the Element, the Element vanishing
a challenge of mental strength overtakes the mind
5. To the Bitter End (6:59)
[Lyrics & Music: Frydrychowicz]

Looking back at the days that past, as hindsight's perspectives settle in
and unwinds the time....
It dawns on me, that for which my life is sold

It dawns on me that only one could have done that
for which my life was stolen from within my reach

You took away my life and,
like shattered glass cuts through the skin,
I began to feel your vengeance
and your treachery
The blood is real...
Yet silent i remained
Indicted by the conspiracy
of fate......

Entombed within
the walls of the condemned
Conspiracy of fate
Fate will may you pay!

Why should I
pay the price for your mistakes?
For trangressions
not remotely mine
Loyalty of blood
condemns me with your sins
Paying with my life
Silent I remain
Empty walls cry out my name

[solo: Frydrychowicz]
[solo: Seghers]

Burn, ignited by my will
Slowly consumed from within
Amongst the damned
You will descend
You should be the one paying the price

[repeat]

Entrapped by my own ethics
my own rules impose this torture
Shall I speak and save myself?
The traitors do not deserve respect!

Why should I pay the price for your mistakes?
Blood ties and loyalty should work both ways
Shall I speak out?
Let the truth be known?
Why do I condemn myself to this prision
without walls?

Why?
I should make you pay!
I shall betray!

Burn, ignited by my will
Slowly consumed from within
Amongst the damned
You will descend
You should be the one paying the price
6. In Articulo Mortis (1:07)
[Lyrics & Music: Frydrychowicz]

Corpus
In Articulo Mortis
Hora mortis
Hora venit

[In Memory Of Chuck Schuldiner]
7. Fate's Descent (4:35)
[Lyrics: Bercier, Music: Frydrychowicz]

My body rests in a dark chamber
As I am receiving final farewells
A saddened silence fills the air
The smell of flowers, the smell of death

The latch is opened, my skin reflects the light
A short prayer is recited in my honour
Some take a step forward, their stares descend
Looks of deception, looks of despair

Some are faceless, some are caught in the moment

Communication at light speed occurs
faster than words can be expressed
One-way telepathy provides the living souls
a sense of presence when left alone

A mental sketch is tattooed on their minds
time to say their "adieux" arrives
My vessel sealed, a cold breeze strikes the world beyond
I am imprisioned from the world of light

Some induce tears, hostage to emotion

Looking from above, I can feel their pain
... I will guide
Purity resists, faith will overcome
... I survive
They forgive my sins, I can feel the peace
... Of my life
Looking through their souls

Timeless sense of loss, overtaking thee
... I will guide
With a mere remorse, they will call to me
... I survive
Tell the secrets of an unforgotten past
... Of my life
Looking through my soul...

Voiceless.. but present...

Some can feel it, some ignore the forces

As I descend into the depths of goodbyes

[solo: Seghers]

The raining earth is bestowed upon my being
As I watch over and comfort thee

[solo: Frydrychowicz]

A last prayer in unison begins

[solo: Frydrychowicz]

Forever lasting, words do not die
Priceless balance

"You feel I have abandoned you, but it is you who left me behind"

[*music written in honour of Chuck Schuldiner*]
8. Dead Man's Diary (5:25)
[Lyrics: Bercier, Music: Frydrychowicz]

[Reader:]

Dead Man's Diary on the nightstand
will it hold the truth to an unanswered past
Thoughts of yesteryears
Will they be revealed to the world at last?

Wooden floor cracks as I take a step forward

A cold breeze in back of my neck
A stench fills the room, the stench fills the room
Accumulated dust showed by the moonlight
Dark cover manuscript reveals its age

My hand apporaches and I feel the rage

[Writer:]

I'll hunt you down and punish your life
I'll nail you to the beams of red
I'll watch you bleed and beg for mercy
I'll savor the moment when our eyes will meet

[Reader:]

The content feared, the diary I open
First page, "To my love, the first and last"
A black and white photo from 1912
An image to remember from a forgotten past

I turn the pages, the horror grasps my attention

Shocking plots, and detailed footnotes
Confession begins:
"My actions are haunting me, I must confess.
But I fear brutal punishment for years on end."

"The truth will stay with me untill my body rests"

[Writer:]

I'll hunt you down and punish your life
I'll nail you to the beams of red
I'll burn your flesh, you will be covered with sores
I'll feel your pain as you scream for mercy

[Reader:]

A dark presence overcomes me
Agression starts to roar within my veins
The pages turn, without applying torque
A blank page appears at the end of the plot

The ink starts to appear as I read the words

My name inscribed, the time of death appears
Scripted to today's date, minutes untill tomorrow
An unexplainable fear is experienced
I close my eyes, I feel a soul above

I look into his eyes
His face...
... My face
Is staring at me

[Writer:]

I'll hunt you down and punish your life
I'll nail you to the beams of red
I'll ram a bullet right through your head
I'll put an end to the misery
