Black in Mind Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Black In Mind (4:08)
I've seen it coming, it's got to be.
No illusions at the turning of the century.
All our wishes - forever free -
all destroyed because somehow we lost the masterkey.

Leaving my dreams far behind,
got no ambitions in time if only I'm so

Black in mind, When there's no point in making it.
Black in mind. When there's no hope for love, I'm so
Black in mind. When these madmen are wasting it.
Black in mind. I don't want to be sacrificed for

a territorial war. Leave me alone, I'm so black in mind.

You made me want it, too blind to see
that all it gave me were illusions of reality.
My eyes got used to the things they've seen,
now where's the difference between my life and the TV screen.
2. The Crawling Chaos (4:46)
It was the year of madness and insanity.
There was no other cure for my disease.
The overdose - I took it ‘cause I had to flee,
it was nearly a journey that had no return,
the fever burned, I was gone -delirium.

There I was striding to heaven and they were calling me from beyond and I heard: "Don't look back!"
But I did and my eyes, they can't forget that sight
‘cause all water and land was dead.

Destroyed, denied, all tears undried,
the crawling chaos comes.
The twilight died, eternal night,
the crawling chaos comes.

A giant maelstrom, absorbing what we'd left back,
the deserts of cadaverous, mortal loam
and jungles of decay and decadence, where once
had been the homelands of my people,
temples of my ancestors, they were gone, dead and gone

Then the cracks in the ground, they were breaking up
and all water was streaming in,
manifesting the sight of the dead Berlin and London and Paris were graves.
3. Alive But Dead (4:57)
As I walk the streets I feel no pain,
there is no love or hate, can't see no certain state I'm in.
And a fog has laid itself on my heart
like this misty morning as this cloudy day begins.

Still I wonder should I be afraid
about what's happening and how long has it been -don't know.
Why did come this shadow in my head
like I have lost my soul, like I'm alive but dead.

As I walk the streets I feel no fear,
although I notice that there is no feeling anymore.
And I try to send my mind back to the times
when I was able to live something to the core.

Dark, dark as the grave, my heart is dead,
I'm just a slave to what they've said. (this decay)
Still I'm alive but I feel dead.
Dark, dark as the grave, my heart is dead,
I'm just a slave to when you call, (my disease)
Still I'm alive but I must be dead.

Alive but dead
can't fill my head

Darkness, there's darkness everywhere.
You gotta help me out of here,
I don't want to stay alive without the capability to feel!
4. Sent By The Devil (5:00)
Spirits coming from the mind,
waking up my deepest horrors,
capture my thoughts, make me blind.

Weird, ‘cause I don't want to see
the abyss of my possibilities.

Scared I can't look away.

It has come to my side.
Sister demon - my bride.

I want you, I need you
and I have set you free.
You're always right behind me,
I know the devil's sent you to me.
You want me, you need me,
now that I've set you free.
Look always right behind you,
You know the devil's sent me to you.

What has started as a longing
almost is possession now,
it drives me again and again.
Put a light into your window,
maybe I can find a hold.
I run against myself ‘till I find the end.

Sent by the devil
5. Shadow Out Of Time (5:39)
Something's happened to myself, I could never give the answer
though I did my best to find it out.
If you'd ask me where I've been the last few years I could not
tell you. Pieces of dreams mix with memories about.

Something's slipped into my body while my mind has been absent
in a nameless time, somehow I know, I know, I know it well...

Like a shadow out of time it's injected in my mind,
like a shadow out of time.
Like a vision in disguise it took hold of all my ways,
like a shadow out of time.

They have told me I've reacted like I was not from this earth.
I guess this something inside me was not.
When I've go these visions that I look down at myself I get
scared. This is not my body, but it's ... what ?

I have slipped in someone's shape while his mind has been absent

in my nameless time, somehow he knows, he knows, I know it well...

Somehow I have lost my memories when I returned from this journey,
you would not believe me anyway. (Shadow out of time)
For the rest of my life I will look for a release from this pain
but I think I'll never see the day. (Shadow out of time)
6. A Spider's Web (3:22)
This world's so materialistic,
our life just makes sense when we buy.
You're just a part of the statistics
when there's a red line on your bank account, you cash runs out.

Half the population blinds their eyes.
They pretend a credit gives them wealthiness, consume contest

Just like a spider's web
Just like a spider's web
you try to get out but it holds you tighter
Just like a spider's web
Just like a spider's web
you try to get out but it holds you tight like

all of this borrowed existences,
how can they sleep in the night.
They are afraid when the bell rings.
They're working half their lifes to bay it back, ‘til heart attack

Half the population blinds their eyes.
They believe a credit gives them wealthiness, consume contest

Just like a spider's web...
you try to get out but it gets you tight like death...
7. In A Nameless Time (10:11)
Awakening this curse was the least of all my fears.
If I could turn back time to free me from this crime.

It started back in time when something stole my mind
and led me through aeons to place and time unknown.

I lived their life, lost in their time, without my face.

Take me back home from these cryptic walls.
I wait for a sign from my own reality, I wait here
in a nameless time.

A certain time passed by, I returned to my life
with memories hard to find, a secret in my mind.

I found it out, I've learned about the place I've been.

Take me away to these cryptic walls.
I wait for a sign from this old reality, it calls me
from a nameless time.
Take me back to these cryptic walls,
to this desert place and this strange reality, it calls me
from a nameless time.

[The Expedition]

I broke up to find this place, find those from the elder race.
In this unknown desert land I was digging in the sand.
Found these ruins, blocks of stone, older than the Egypt ones.

Climbed in caves, unspeakable, far down in the planets depths.

There were these enchanted books, pages that I've known too well,
written by the aliens ‘bout the way their study's been.
They transformed through space and time in all kinds of living minds
learning this way everything how through times the culture's been.

And I imagined how it's been like traveling through a name less time.
And I remembered how I felt when I was
in a nameless time, in a nameless time...

Take me home from these cryptic vaults.
I wait for a sign from my own reality, I wait here
in a nameless time.

[Finding Out]

Although the most I knew I needed a final proof
if I'd been one of them. And then these pages came :

My written words! So I'd been here in one of them...

Take me back home from these cryptic vaults.
‘cause I've been alive in this strange reality,

release me from this nameless time.
Take me home from these cryptic vaults.
I'm cursed for all time in this strange reality,
release me from this nameless time...
8. The Icecold Hand Of Destiny (4:06)
Plans I have made to build it up from this state.
Always moving, never stop, though the answers are made
‘bout the future, ‘bout the past,
where I come from, what will last.

Try to delay things that lead you astray.
But society sucks you out, leads to early decay.

If I will, if I won't, a decision that I could not flee.
I prayed it leave me be - the icecold hand of destiny.

Everything's right, it seems the future looks bright.
But there's always factor X that leads the tumbling dice.

If I will...

Play for future, play for past,
where you come from, what will last.
9. Forever (4:45)
From the beginning you learned that we all have to die.
You got so used to the fact that you don't wonder why.
you don't ask:
how does it feel to someone when the moment has come?
When all is taken away, an existence is gone, who'll be his guide?

Take his soul and take his mind
and his opened eyes stay blind.

Forever - you know there was someone inside,
the smile on these lips don't seem right.
Forever's a very long time.
Forever - these cheeks growing colder and grey,
a smile that is fading away.
Forever's a very long time.

You know it happens a thousand times every day.

You can't imagine you might be the next, you don't want to care.
But Lady luck is a bitch, won't stay at one place twice,
wipes a curl from your eye and kisses you goodbye, bye bye...

Leaves your soul and leaves your mind
and your broken eyes stay blind.

Forever....

So take good care of what you say.
It might be coming back one day.
So take good care of what you do.
This chance might be the last for you.

Forever - forever and ever, forever's a very long time.
10. Until I Die (4:34)
I awoke, I could not stay for more,
I tried to tell the others what I'd seen before.
No one believed me, "it's a dream" they said.
But I have seen eternity when I was dead.

Who decided who's to go and who's to stay on this old world?
This time now my path lead me to life.

There was a vision that lightened up my life
and now I know it was death that I have tried.
Although I came back I've seen the other side,
so I will never forget until I die.

I remember seeing my body lying
after the accident, my soul was drifting away,
passing darkness to a golden light
into the arms of Jesus with my fathers eyes.

He decided I'd to go and stay for longer in this world
until I have walked my path of life.

There was a vision...

There's a legion of the long - gone there,
a bundled energy of all that once were here.

No one's lost, a comfort we can share,
like a kind of existence, timeless, everywhere.

Who decided...
11. My Rage (2:42)
I've been sitting, wondering. Where am I to go?
I spend time on too many things, turn my tides too slow.

I never felt so sick, that's all I know.
but when I hit my strings too loud
Then I will let my demons out

My RAGE - there's danger in my smile.
My RAGE - no, this is not my stile.

In the suburbs of my mind lives a gang of four
joining me from time to time in my mental war.

I never felt so mean, that's all I know.
But when I hit my strings to loud
then I will let my demons out

My RAGE...

Now I will let my demons out...
In my hour of darkness they will come again;
Fear, hate, frustration, desperation.
They are all so negative, but now I'll get them down,
I'll answer with my RAGE...
12. The Price Of War (4:16)
When the world's gone mad compassion dies.

Soldiers killing for their thrills,
making war just for the sake of war.
There's no future left than death.

Leave me be - misery!

Weep with the children and stave with the prisoners
before you scream for revenge.

Sorrowful women with tears in their hollow eyes -
this is no justice, this is the price of war.
The price of war

Some came running to the military,
misled by a false ideal,
believing guns could solve a problem, still
blind to see they only kill.

Ripped off from the middle,
ripped off from head to toes.
Ripped off - multikilling,
ripped off - guts and bones.

Weep with the children and starve with the prisoners
before you scream for revenge.
Sorrowful women with tears in their hollow eyes -
this is no justice, this is no justice.
You'd watch the dying, lay hands on their bleeding wounds
before you scream for war, don't you scream for.
This is no justice, this is the price of war.
13. Start! (4:33)
Think back to when you were younger,
remember when life had no scars.
You were at home in your own mind,
responsive to your inner call.

I'm waiting you'll come back,
I'm waiting for your return.

Don't waste your time any longer.
Start a new story, start a new glory.
Don't waste your time any longer.

Start a new story, start a new glory in life!

You're in a state of progression,
shapeless fears break free someway.
Your life became an obsession
when the machine stole your days.

Why do you lose your time in senseless rites
that dry your will away?

Don't waste your time any longer, just start!
14. All This Time (5:34)
Some kids of today
Live a boring life, they say
Playing deadly games
Risk their life for just a thrill
No one wants to see how final is eternity
Show me you're alive, I'm waiting for a sign
Frame their gallows, meet their death
They tie the rope they'll hang at last
Open up your eyes
Life means more than being alive
Check out what you've got
The end will be there soon enough
No one wants to see how final is eternity
Show me you're alive, I'm waiting for a sign
Frame their gallows, meet their death
They tie the rope they'll hang at last
