Love, Fear and the Time Machine Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Rhea
1. Lost (Why Should I Be Frightened By a Hat?) (5:51)
I dropped down again
From a star
On a desert island
Full of skies

And I saw a boy
Looking up
Dreaming of his future
From my past

Soon I drew an ocean
Tamed the sun
And I plunged my feet
Into the sand

Bit by bit I came
To understand
How I miss this freedom
And the swoosh of waves

Come
Follow me
We’ll go down where the river flows
One day
Just you and I
We’ll find the bridge to the neverland

I was frightened of
A thousand hats
Bouncing off the answers
Losing pride

Had a fear of failure
And true love
But I don’t regret that
I am what I lost

Come
Follow me
We’ll go down where the river flows
One day
Just you and I
We’ll find the bridge to the neverland
2. Under the Pillow (6:47)
Hey you,
Somewhere in the mirror
What happened today with your face
Your eyes
Sank in their hollows
And the ocean of your disgrace

It’s no shame
You haven’t done what you were supposed to
And did what you didn’t want to
1-UP!
The amount of self-deception
Slowly starts killing you
Inside

You’re faced
With a new decision
Between the dawn and the day
Melting
Between the life you got used to
And something you don’t understand

I know
It demands an effort
And the pills to get rid of this pain
Not a chance
I’m sorry, Birdy
I’m your favourite voice inside your head

Hey you,
Rise and shine!
You must learn to stand your ground
How long can you hold your breath under the pillow?
You kept yourself to yourself
Day by day
Growing delusions in the blue flowerpots

Your filter bubble
On the touchscreen display
Has recommended to you
What you should want

While you’ve been watching too much daytime TV
Dreaming on demand
Your ”from tomorrow” just became ”yesterday”
Made you crawl again
Under the bed covers

Hey you,
Rise and shine!
You must learn to stand your ground
How long can you hold your breath under the pillow?
How long can you hold your breath under the pillow?
How long can you hold your breath under the pillow?
3. Addicted (4:52)
I feel I have to share
What I do
Or where I am
There’s an urge within
I can’t ignore

Hashtag me and go
I’m addicted to your love
I’m addicted to my aimless drive

There’s a mask upon my face
I can’t live without
So you won’t recognize me
When I am in the crowd
I lost my calmness in the world
Where everything is searchable

Dreaming inside out
Feeling inside out

I don’t have my place
I’m in here and everywhere
Just another day in hd frame

So hashtag me and go
Cause I’m addicted to your love
I’m afraid
You’re the only friend I’ve got

There’s a mask upon my face
I can’t live without
So you won’t recognize me
When I am in the crowd
I lost my calmness in the world
Where everything is searchable

Dreaming inside out
Feeling inside out
Dreaming inside out
Feeling inside out

Hashtag me and go
Cause I’m addicted to your love

I lost my calmness in the world
Where everything is searchable

Dreaming inside out
Feeling inside out
Dreaming inside out
Feeling inside out
4. Caterpillar and the Barbed Wire (6:56)
I want to fly
I want to feel my life
Still belongs to me
No matter what
I want to fly
I want to flap my wings
And cause a hurricane in your heart

Butterflies
Better lies than hate
But I can’t pretend anymore
I’m tired of suppressing all of my needs
I want to belong to the cloudless sky
Not to the shaded ground

But it’s so hard to admit
That I lived without your light
Trying not to believe that I need it more
Now the bleeding won’t stop
For I struggled through the barbed wire
Trying not to believe that I need your love
Trying not to believe in love

I wanted to turn into a butterfly
But I couldn’t trust you enough

I was tired of suppressing all of my needs I wanted to belong to the cloudless sky
Not to the shaded ground

But it’s so hard to admit
That I lived without your light
Trying not to believe that I need it more
Now the bleeding won’t stop
For I struggled through the barbed wire
Trying not to believe that I need your love
Trying not to believe in love

But it got me now
5. Saturate Me (7:08)
iCrowd patterns
Beliefs
Guided trips
Search for hints
Copy/paste
Brain turned off

In my invisible ”oh” life
I don’t want to feel
Like I’m no one anymore

Lack of self confidence
Trapped inside sweet wrappers cage
Sky is blue - so I’ve been told

In my invisible ”oh” life
I don’t want to feel
Like I’m no one anymore
6. Afloat (3:11)
Dream on, my pain
My scar
My blame
You’ve been a part of me
Unless and until

Dreamt by the night
Under your skin
I run through the wind
Unless and until

Dream on, my pain
My scar
My thorn
You’ve been a part of me
Let me stay afloat
7. Discard Your Fear (7:00)
once
in the darkness
of bad memories
you stepped into a trap
but the spring-loaded bar
Didn’t break your neck
and you remained there
waiting for the better time

Life
With your passivity
in the face of choices
forced you to turn back
settle with your lies
but the stubborn glass
Doesn’t want to talk to you
Waiting for the better time
chair bound and bedridden heart

discard your fear of the unknown
be here and now
Just find yourself in peace
try to free your mind
wake up
get unstuck
let it go
send your shame to nevermore

your past
your distorted thoughts
closed you in the box
and cluttered up your head
hewn from happiness
in your fable town
you're still afraid of
Starting something new this life

discard your fear of the unknown
be here and now
Just find yourself in peace
try to free your mind
wake up
get unstuck
let it go
Send your shame to nevermore

discard your fear of the unknown
be here and now
just find yourself in peace
try to free your mind
Wake up
Get unstuck
let it go
send your shame to nevermore
let it go
Scare away your fear

No more
Fear of new life
Fear of days of the unknown
Fear of new life
Fear of days of the unknown
Fear of new life
Fear of days of the unknown
fear of new life

no more fear of love
8. Towards the Blue Horizon (8:09)
Let me tell you a story
About you and me in those days
How much passion and joy
We shared
How often we turned back time

Let me tell you a story
About you and me in those days
When we felt as if we
could change
The whole world with just one wave

As we ran through the silence
At the speed of sound
Towards the blue horizon
We could open minds

Let me tell you a story
About you and me in those days
We just lived our lives
Swam out
To the middle of the lake

As we ran through the silence
At the speed of sound
Towards the blue horizon
We could open skies

***

Where are you now my friend?
I miss those days
I hope they take good care
Of you there
And you can still play the guitar
And sing your songs

I just miss those days
And miss you so
Wish I could be strong
When darkness comes
9. Time Travellers (6:41)
One day we'll find our way
Straying from the road
We thought we could go
Until we would fade.

Traveling across the fallen earth
And the foreign lands
We survived
To believe that this is not the end
This is not the time

Moving unseen beyond
The shadows
Waiting for
The birth of a star we can follow

One day we'll find our time
Come to realize
That our history
Came full circle

Traveling across all the dried up seas
And the foreign lands
We survived
To believe that this is not the end
This is not the time

We crane our necks for youth
We know we’ll make it through
And we can go back to the forest

Let’s go back to the world
That was 30 years ago
And let’s believe this is our time
10. Found (The Unexpected Flaw of Searching) (4:03)
Cut off from the dream
Where the sky meets water
Beneath forgotten stars
Feeling like a child
I embrace what I came for
And what I’ve overcome

Oooh, it’s a lovely life
You have gone so far
Don’t give it up
Oooh, it’s a lovely life
You gotta go with
What you think is right

Delve into myself
With my truth and devotion
I start another flow
Gliding up and down
In my yearning for daylight
I find you in my soul

Oooh, it’s a lovely life
Sun emerges from behind the clouds
Oooh, it’s a lovely life
You gotta go with
What you think is right

Cut off from the dream
Where the sky meets water
Beneath forgotten stars
I feel like a child
Found in waking life
