Circle of Life Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Enter Mirror (8:41)
(“Reflecting on our fears”)
(“Reflecting on our fears”)

This shattered dust reveals a mist
A reflection of your fear
Cursing this very day
When your shadows learned to emerge
Denying too much failure
Regret forever more
Instead of leave behind
Instead of carry on
A corruption of your mind

A trembling phobia
Afraid of what is wrong and right
Always easier to run
From your withering mind
Expecting all to understand
The choices that you’ve done
Instead of killing thoughts
Using human will’s gun

We'll contain shards of evil
And thoughts of pain
Is this freedom
The goal you want to attain?
Afraid to cast it away
We'll receive shards of hatred
Passed by our fears
Powerful enough
To break both you and me
Afraid to cast them away
You enter the mirror

(“We all have some evil inside”)

(Its rise) Surprising
(The fear of) Leaving it
Wanting nothing but
Freedom from regret
(The darker thoughts) Fading out
(When you) Believe in
The power to banish it all
“But what if I’m to weak?”
“What if it keeps control?”
Then go and let it
Bring sin to your soul

A misleading phobia
Afraid of what is wrong and right
Always easier to run
Instead of losing the fight
Expecting all to accept
These choices that you’ve done
“I try to kill these thoughts”
“Please, just make them be gone”

Cries avoided, when you feel
Them to depend on you
To dry them
Is a choice way to cruel
But inside, the wish to
Abandon who you're now
Try it once for all
And fight it back to the grave

(“It's feeded by our fears”)

We'll contain shards of evil
And thoughts of pain
Is this freedom
The goal you want to attain?
Afraid to cast it away
We'll receive shards of hatred
Passed by our fears
Powerful enough
To break both you and me
Afraid to cast them away
You enter the mirror
You go, enter the mirror
2. Beyond Time (7:13)
There was no time to think
Alternative solutions
The sound of emptiness
Runs through my head
There is no time to cry out
My inner delusions
No more excuses with
You to share

I hear the cries
The silent emptiness
Behind my eyes
Tears me apart again
I feel the ice
Melting apart as I
Stand right here
Beyond what I believed

A dream out on the ocean
Reflecting on the past
Forgiveness in the future
Time won’t last
Until the leaves have fallen
We’ll forget their pain
Time will make you crawling
Back to your past

There is a place
Where self-pity is vanished
A place located
Far beyond the time
The only reason for
This inner fear to rise up
Is when you expect that
Everything must end

I hear the lies
The empty words you hide
Behind those eyes
Tears you apart again
You fear the time
When it arrives
What will you do?
What will you do?

A dream out on the ocean
Reflecting on the past
Forgiveness in the future
Time won’t last
Until the leaves have fallen
We’ll forget their pain
Time will make you crawling
Back to your past

A dream out on the ocean
Reflecting on the past
Forgiveness in the future
Time won’t last
Now the leaves have fallen
And now you feel their pain
Time now made you crawling
Back to your past
3. Fall of Stars (5:18)
(Instrumental)
4. The Dreamer (9:39)
It's been decades since I lost you
Every nights repeated pain
I was told there was a way
To reunite with you again
A mysterious solution
To fall in dreams without awakes
Into a place where I could find you
A place where you could grab my hand

Take and guide me away
To the land of my dreams
I will dare to take
This last chance to see her again
I will fade to the notes
Away from this life
An empty cold time
Play me the song, make me fall
Into a reflection of my dream

Black fades to white
All alone, among all light
But then, from the white mist she came
The only one I longed to see again
Touched by her hand
On my face, staring blind
Through her eyes I could see
A lost soul now staring back at me

Now help me remain
In the land of my dreams
I'll dare to throw away
My life sacrificed
I faded to the notes
Away from that life
That empty cold time
Playing the song made me fall
Into a reflection of my dream

Asking for no guidance
Of how to come back home
This dream taken for granted
My life forever gone
But the circle kept on spinning
And the dream became a curse
Her spirit now standing by
This corrupted lullaby

Take and guide me away
From the land of my dreams
I can now understand
What I have done wrong
I won't fade to the notes
Away from that life, my reality
Playing that song nevermore
Take me away from this black dream
5. I. Prelude of Life (6:33)
When the light reaches
The dawn of a new birth
A dark and empty place will shine
'Cause of a miracle
Of existence called "life"
But the life of a boy
Would already be decided
Even though the events of his life
Will never be foretold
He will be given the same symbol of life
The eight through day and night
Just like everybody else
_________________________________

(Instrumental)
6. II. Alive at Sunrise (4:05)
As the first sun rises
To celebrate the joy of birth
A boy is born and begins his walk
Through the endless circle
Starting on the bright side of the symbol
He experiences the will to live
And born to loving parents
That would love him forever
He feels safe in his personal paradise
The only side of life that he knows
_________________________________

I've awakened, I'm alive
I can finally see the light
The vanished darkness and
Their smiles so bright
I've awaited, I've arrived
To my first paradise
That I'm living in advance

I'm guided away
To the land where I belong
I'm taken to a house
To a new dawn

I open my eyes and wake up
From a dream reflecting reality
This constant feeling
Of immortality
Running down the stairs
Without any fear
What should I fear
When love stands beside me?

A perfect life
High in this sky
I know I can fly
In this ethereal sky

A perfect life
High in this sky
I know I can fly
In this ethereal sky

And everything seems
Will last forever
This perfect life
Will it remain?
7. III. The Fatal Beginning (7:02)
Every living creation will reach a point
Where they’ll be introduced to the night
After living on the edge of paradise
The night will fall down and create
An unfamiliar and chocking change in life
Things can change in a way
You would never desire
It will leave a boy paralyzed
By the chock of finding his world upside down

("The night fell down")

("Its true reflection")
("Then suddenly")
("Two horrifying sounds")
("Screaming, shooting")
("Blackened")

The mirrors dirt is vanished
Paradise is turning to hell
The sun goes down (First wave of)
Darkness has arrived
A new reflection
Revealed the evil surrounding me
How could this be?
What did I do wrong?

Is hope consumed?
How could this be?
How could this tragedy
Fall upon me?
By the thunder outside
I wake up in the night
To witness another
Dramatic scene

Why?
Help me understand
Why did this
Beautiful chapter in my life
Run out of hand?
How?
Could this perfect world
How could it turn all around?
Now where shall I go?

I feel lost in myself
I have to deal with this pain
I'm forced to fill my life with fear
I try to save the past in vain
Running away from a tragic memory
With nothing more to gain
After years in paradise
The evil has locked me in chains

And I run
And I never stop
But I'm blind
In this evil game

No
Get away from me
There's memories of beauty
Inside of me
No
I won't believe it no more
The mirror it lied
Reflection denied

Why?
Help me understand
Why did this
Beautiful chapter in my life
Run out of hand
How?
Could this perfect world
How could it turn all around?
Now where shall I go?

Why?
Help me understand
Why did this
Beautiful chapter in my life
Run out of hand?
Don't
Don't try to take me back
I don't want to be a part
Of this world full of lies
8. IV. The Shadow Man (4:34)
In moments of confusion and anger
A boy can easily pass over
And enter the dark mirror
The reflection can be invisible to oneself
And bring forth the dark side
Of a way of being
The mirror will absorb your anger
And make you feel comfortable
In your new life
Making it easy for a shadow man
_________________________________

Woke up in a forest
Far away from my home
I spot some light
A man behind a fire
He said "Don't be afraid"
"I'll give you the help you need"
He reaches out his hand
Inviting me in the night

He told me about this cruel world
Where good things never stay
He said the darkness opened his eyes
As the fire begins to fade
He invites me to take part of his life
Beside him, on the ground I see a knife
Revenge burns in a eleven year old kid
I accept to join his life

He guides me to a path
We're running all around doing criminal acts
He wants revenge on the world
I might as well feel the same wrath

Where shall I go?
This life seems so unreal
I can't think clear enough
This life is not for me
Now we have begun
He says it's too late to turn back
And that we must give back evil
For the evil we've received

This man of shadows
Who leads me on evil ways
Who proclaims revenge
And says that the world must pay
But now I see a final picture
I do not see any reason
You won't guide me no more
I'm walking out the door

Help me
I don't know where I am
Or where I should go
Give me a meaning
To all that's happening to me
9. V. Under the Moonlight (5:51)
Even though the darkness
Can seem to be eternal
A time will come when
There will be given a reason
To the reversed world
A familiar voice of the past
Will remind a man of a life
And of his personal paradise
But how much faith and hope
Can be received by such a subtle voice?

I wake up again
This familiar voice is repeating
I turn my head, an orb of
Light is there to guide me
It's taking me to a place
A place I've never seen before
A sacred lake in the night
Then came a blinding light

I fall down on my knees
I am ready to listen
Staring into the moonlight
Reflecting on what I have done
I feel the remorse hit me hard

I cry, trying to understand life
The anger leaves me, desperation survives
This voice, explaining everything
Still I can't understand

How that perfect life
The sense of immortality
That endless dream
Didn't survive
10. VI. Circle of Reflection (7:01)
A life filled of changes
Happy and tragic experiences
Will bring a man into
A circle of reflection
_________________________________

(Instrumental)
11. VII. Realization (6:19)
After a long time passed
Within the circle of reflection
A man realizes the system of life
The picture of the circle of life
Receives the final missing piece
Brought by a mans belief in hope
The decision of believing
In that familiar voice
Finally brings the full picture
After years passed in emptiness
_________________________________

The voice under the moonlight
Now made me realize
The fear is slowly fading
And the hope is on the rise
Years after years, I tried to let go
Those memories of the past
But all those things, both good and bad
Those times will always last

Into the eight
The mark of eternity
We're all running
So endlessly
A turn beside the night
A turn beside the day
Until we all start drifting
Until it's time for us to fade

Our perfect lives
And all of our cries
Are sides of a dice
In this circle of life

I've witnessed both the two sides
The hell and paradise
I thought that it was possible
To never pay a price
Inside that house where I grew up
Both love and evil passed
But that's all part of this strange life
Where time flows too fast

Into the eight
The mark of eternity
We're all running
So endlessly
A turn beside the night
A turn beside the day
Until we all start drifting
Until it's time for us to fade

Our perfect lives
And all of our cries
Are sides of a dice
In this circle of life

In the past
I wanted to believe
That all good in my life
Would last forever
But today
I've finally realized
That the circle of life
Runs through both day and night

The power we need
The only thing we need
Is only to believe
That everything will be fine
The will to live
The will to love
Its magic, it is true
And even though
The sky seems gray
You'll see, it soon will turn blue
'Cause everything you need
Everything you'll ever need
Is only to believe
In this circle of life
Believe
12. VIII. The End: A New Beginning (3:41)
When one reaches
The final chapter of life
A final moment of fear can rise
From not knowing what will follow
At the very end
It is the final step
And the final decision
That will decide if one
Will fade away in peace
_________________________________

The time has come
It's time to join the other side
My years have passed
Now down they fall
These tears of fear I cry
A terror inside
Of fading away
Unaware about a thing
Where can I find the peace?

A quick reflection
On what I desire
The love that once
Could carry me higher

To live or to die
I'm in a place between
But I realize, I miss the ones
Who died during that dramatic scene
And now I'm here
The time has come to reach my dream
I'll join with them, I'll be with them
The ones who gave me life

The time is short
Let me tell you right now
About the love that always lasts
Through this circle of life
And now I'll fade away
I'll rise up high, up to the sky
Where we will reunite

The eight through day and night
Don't be afraid
Please, never cry
The eternal night is a lie
These are my last words now
Always believe
That the circle of life
Will carry you out from the night
