A Moment of Silence Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. A Moment Of Silence (5:09)
Remember when all the days were of gold
And time was always at your side
The days of childhood are forever gone
Innocence lays shattered by the grave

Wait for a moment of silence
Before the day turns to night
Before the day turns to night
Wait for a moment of silence
Before the coming of the dark
Before the great storm
Wait for a moment of silence
And then the sun turns to black
The sun turns to black
In remembrance of days
That will never come back

We each must face our dying pasts
For every day must die
And though we strive to make them last
The future is inevitable

Wait for a moment of silence
Before the day turns to night
Before the day turns to night
Wait for a moment of silence
Before the coming of the dark
Before the great storm
Wait for a moment of silence
And then the sun turns to black
The sun turns to black
In remembrance of days
That will never come back

Wait for a moment of silence
2. Winter's Tear (4:23)
When autumn leaves are falling
Nature's calling me to stay at home
And if the rain is pouring
My heart's soring and I'm all alone
I wish I could be understood
It's only fair but they all stare
I'm at a loss at such a cost
I wish that you were here to stay

Say that it isn't so
Don't tell me that it's time to go
Don't ever be the one to know
Just say that it isn't so

In winter's tear when no one's near
I find condolence in the past
I reminisce and then get pissed
Her image haunts me like a ghost
I wish I could be understood
It's only fair but they all stare
I'm at a loss at such a cost
I wish that you were here to stay

Say that it isn't so
Don't tell me that it's time to go
Don't ever be the one to know
Just say that it isn't so

When autumn leaves are falling
Nature's calling me to stay at home
And if the rain is pouring
My heart's soring and I'm all alone
I wish I could be understood
It's only fair but they all stare
I'm at a loss at such a cost
I wish that you were here to stay

Say that it isn't so
Don't tell me that it's time to go
Don't ever be the one to know
Just say that it isn't so
3. Hour Glass (5:15)
Time is seeping
Between my hands
The clock is ticking
Day fly by
Time is seeping into my thoughts
There's no mistaking
What's to come

I live my life
I have no choice
No voice

The lines not getting
Any shorter
The road we're taking
Is strait and narrow
Looking forward nothing is clear
One thing is certain
The end is near

I live my life
I have no choice
No voice
4. Flames (3:07)
Flames
Rage from above
Untamed
The ground shake below
Set the earth on fire
Set the earth on fire

Leave behind yesterday
Look ahead far away
Dive into a sea of tears
99 the worst of years

Crazed
Prophet of despair
Amazed
Truth in his words
Set the earth on fire
Set the earth on fire

Leave behind yesterday
Look ahead far away
Dive into a sea of tears
99 the worst of years
Flames
Rage in his eyes
Untamed
Visions in his mind
Set the earth on fire
Set the earth on fire

Leave behind yesterday
Look ahead far away
Dive into a sea of tears
99 the worst of years
5. Set The Controls (5:19)
[Pink Floyd]

Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Over the hills a swallow is resting

Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine
Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine

Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Witness the man who wanes at the wall
Making the shape of his question to heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving

Set the controls for the heart of the sun
6. Another Dimension (4:29)
In the midst of joyful time
The strongest realization struck me
The time of my death is pre-conceived
And however plentiful
My days are numbered

I believe in god
My soul will never die
I beg you don't let me go
It can't all disappear
It's in my mind

What would you do if you were to know
The date that's reserved only for you
Would it drive you out of your mind
Would it drive you out of your soul

I believe in god
My soul will never die
I beg you don't let me go
It can't all disappear

You can't convince me
That everything is simply there
With it's fabulous creatures
Was created by a greater force

A greater scheme binds everything
Of this I'm sure I'm certain
In another dimension our souls live and breath
And there they are eternal

I believe in god
It's in my mind
My soul will never die
It's in my mind
I beg you don't let me go
I don't believe
It can't all disappear
7. The Worst To Come (4:43)
My youth is seeping away so fast
And when you went you took hope away
Now I can not ignore the future
The present becomes unbearable

Old man did you think about tomorrow
Or was the final moment your betrayer
You bled to death between my hands
And there was nothing I could have done
For you

My youth is seeping away so fast
And when you went you took hope away
You bled to death between my hands
And there was nothing I could have done
For you
8. An Unwanted Guest (7:03)
When you sleep
The door is open
And through the dream
You pass the portal
Summoned by the guardian world

An unwanted guest in the guardian world

You are called to enter
For a purpose
It's not your own
And if you're wish enough
To pay attention
You'll see that you were warned

An unwanted guest in the guardian world

Through technological breakthrough
The pride of mankind
They developed a chemical portal
Parallel to dreams

Take heed for through this alien door
You enter uninvited
Into a world so great in power
It could crush your mind

An unwanted guest in the guardian world
9. Symbiosis (4:42)
Slow descent towards dependency
So intent to fulfill the prophecy
Maternal recession
Into infancy

Undividable grip
Irreversible lock
Alone I die
Symbiosis

Your warm embraces - release me
Devide me not - erase me
Ours are sister souls - for we are one
I am the seed within - devour me

Make one move
Just one step
And I 'm torn apart
I 'm torn apart

Slow descent towards dependency
So intent to fulfill the prophecy
Maternal recession
Into infancy

Undividable grip
Irreversible lock
Alone I die
Symbiosis
10. Eyes To Match A Soul (4:01)
Cry out for one soul
The only one that could ever hear
Only one whose ears are brave
Enough to listen to the beat of a heart

I try to find a pair of eyes
Eyes to match a soul

The sweat meets my tears
The salt blinds my eyes
You are there I know it
I can sense the throbbing pain
I catch a glimpse of sparkling eyes
Then I see the eyes no more

Cry out for one soul
The only one that could ever hear
Only one whose ears are brave
Enough to listen to the beat of a heart

I try to find a pair of eyes
Eyes to match a soul
11. Who Will Comfort Me Now (10:59)
The dead keep their lives
Inside our memories
Or so they say
But I'm not convinced
That's not enough for me

On that terrible night
Caught between the hope of his call
And the dread of his fall
The door bell band and not the phone
Since then I'm all alone

Morning brings a new day
Last night he passed away
Daylight shines outside
My loss I cannot hide
They say life goes on
A part of me died along with my son

Who will comfort me now
Each day brings less hope to me
There's nothing left but the past

Who will comfort me now
Each day brings less hope to me
There's nothing left but the past
Will we meet again at last
When I die

The dead keep their lives
Inside our memories
Or so they say
But I'm not convinced
That's not enough for me
