Waiting in the Wings Lyrics

Submitted by level 마Gm
1. Star of David (5:13)
He lured them in by lying and made them greedy

To begin with I am sad, to begin with I am just as mad as you, almost
You see there's a difference between us that won't go away 'til you're dead

My pretty dancer tell me: are you alone inside your make-up
And the mask you're wearing slowly tearing you apart
Sing, do a final show for me. you're heavy at heart as can be
I know you're sad about it

Quick be on your way -to the sound of the army boots you fall asleep so quietly
Maybe you will live another day
Soon they will find you and make you pay

Predators will hunt their prey, send me on my way just to
Bleed
Cut you open for the cause to feed
Tell me a tale, the one about that girl
Who can dance away time, move her feet like rain

His words are all the same lies, his words are greedy

Sing, do a final show for me. there's a tear in your eye I can see
That I'm not talking while you're singing

Quick be on your way -disappear in the dark be a black shadow in the park, fade away
And try to live throughout the day
Soon they will find you and make you pay

You will follow, they will lead with minds of flesh and blood
And greed
Cut you open like a sack of seed
Tell me a tale, the one about that girl
Who can dance away time, move her feet like rain

Predators will hunt their prey, send me on my way just to
Bleed
Cut you open for the cause to feed
Tell me a tale, the one about that girl
Who can dance away time, move her feet like rain

Cuz I'm a soldier and you're a dancer
So I let you over
Sold!
2. Taint the Sky (6:24)
A northern corner,
The stage is set and each must play his part
Accusing children: "-i have seen her fly!"
The life-depriving lies

I'm sorry you must believe me!
-but we have seen you heal in evil ways.
Deceiver!

Witches will burn
-even if she dies for a crime unknown
Taint the sky, ashes falling
And even if your heart is saying "no!"
-your mind is so twisted. can you really let her go?
Soon the heavens will burn!

A stronger magic;
To allow this jest, reason is subdued
Accused and lying -oh sure she will cry!
Confession tears they are!

I'm sorry, my life is over
-and we will make the demons go away.
Forever!

Witches will burn
-even if she dies for a crime unknown
Taint the sky, ashes falling
And even if your heart is saying "no!"
-your mind is so twisted. can you really let her go?
Soon the heavens will burn!

A kingdom is burning,
And will I ever know just why?
I see them burning oh I see
It burns in me
–they're burning us all!

Witches will burn
-even if she dies for a crime unknown
Taint the sky, ashes falling
And even if your heart is saying "no!"
-your mind is so twisted. can you really let her go?
Soon the heavens will burn!
3. Waiting In the Wings (9:18)
So here I am, I'm a man and that little boy
Tied down deep within me
-you have broken your word!
I'm sorry that I bowed once again,
And let the monsters loose
You can't understand it, you can't understand what it's like
The world which we live in
Feel I'm tearing up inside I'm loosing my mind

One look and the clown in the mirror says:
Hi -i'm still here waiting...
And time is no longer on your side

A part of him dies, another one lives in the mirror...

... and his legacy reigns
But I won't follow you
In the shadows I cry
Closer to heaven I fail

I still remember the words that the little boy
I once was, were told:
Son, order rises from fear!
Oh, how I swore I'd fight what he was
And I'd never be like him
I was such a fool, an ignorant fool to believe
A man can control how he's living out his life
Or change anything

One look and the clown in the mirror says:
Hi -i'm still here waiting...
And time is no longer on your side

A part of him dies, another one lives in the mirror...

... and his legacy reigns
But I won't follow you
In the shadows I cry
Closer to heaven I fail

So here I am, I'm a man in a cynical world
Filled with compromises
-a tyrant sighs in the mirror
I know now I've been weak and afraid
And turned the other cheek
He knows I can't stand it,
He knows I can't stand that I am a pawn in his puzzle
And still waiting in the wings, the ghost of my past

One look and the clown in the mirror says:
Hi -i'm still here waiting...
And time is no longer on your side

A part of him dies, another one lives in the mirror...

... and his legacy reigns, but I won't follow him
In the shadows I cry, alone so close to heaven...

... and his legacy reigns
But I won't follow you
In the shadows I cry
Closer to heaven I fail
4. Banish the Wicked (5:36)
When the morning arrives, the whispering wind reveals
The intentions of the night.
So don't you tease the power watching over us!
The childless and sad mother cries:
Oh please, be careful!
So children stop your foolish games and smile towards the light and don't you dare cry

So many friends have died...
And we all know it's too many...
How can we possibly break this curse?
I don't know...
She will probably punish me for even
Thinking about leaving the village...

And the people know
They got no place to go...

When the goddess dance across the heavens
She's so bright, like an arch of light
They couldn't dream of denying her will tonight
The righteous will stand
And the wicked are banished from her land!

When the evening arrives, they stand before the queen
May her judgement free or fail the lawless.
The widow cries a silent tear
The scar of a justified fear of loosing
Cause someone's watching over them,
Impaling every move with raging northern light

So many friends have died...
And we all know it's too many...
How can we possibly break this curse?
I don't know...
She will probably punish me for even
Thinking about leaving the village...

And the people know
To turn the lights down low...

When the goddess dance across the heavens
She's so bright, like an arch of light
They couldn't dream of denying her will tonight
The righteous will stand
And the wicked are banished from her land!

One light, one spell, one dance
For all the breathless
So scared, inside
Spare me, goddess!

When she's dancing all across the heavens
She's so bright like, an arch of light
They couldn't dream of denying her will tonight
When she's dancing all across the heavens
She so bright... so bright!
They couldn't dream of denying her will tonight
And the righteous will stand
As she'll banish the wicked from her land
5. Not An Angel (6:44)
Even when alone I'm not lonely
Even when you're hot I am cold as ice
Another day another lie
And there is nobody to catch me
When I'm falling
Wake up my dear and smell the salt
Don't hide your fear it's not your fault
And from the day I saw your face...
-i've been lying...

Soon she will die
In the enemy bed she's sleeping
Innocent victim of this dark charade
But my secret remains in the shade...

Yeah I want you to know
I'm not an angel
This evening I can no longer hide
I'm not just a man...
And I want you to know
I'm not your angel
Darling run -why can't you see?
So run... away from me!

Under the moon
My heart is turning black under my disguise
Another night, another dies
And if you find a place to hide I'll
Kick the walls in...
What you don't know
Will not hurt you
But here is the blow
-that is not true
And you will never know what hit you...

Until the end I will love you
And love is blind, now that is true
Cause you will never know what hit you...
... I've been lying...

Soon she will die
In the enemy bed she's sleeping
Innocent victim of this dark charade
But my secret remains in the shade...

Yeah I want you to know
I'm not an angel
This evening I can no longer hide
I'm not just a man...
And I want you to know
I'm not your angel
Darling run -why can't you see?
So run... away from me!

Tonight there is evil
On the ground
Tonight there is evil
Hold on tighter
When you believe there is no one to blame
I've got to prove you wrong

Yeah I want you to know
I'm not an angel
This evening I can no longer hide
I'm not just a man...
And I want you to know
I'm not your angel
Darling run -why can't you see?
So run... away from me!
6. Devil's Inc. (7:14)
Falling down:

I will tell you how I failed to be a good man
If you follow the flame you end up in the dark
Coming up in a dream, sitting up in the night
With a cold panic attack and a scream
Although it's hot I'm feeling very cold inside

Although I am alive I can not feel a thing
I wanna now why I really had to follow the tall man
To his office down underground
Call me dead heart walking

In the office:

Hey... no way! you don't have to be down
Don't you wanna make it better?
Sign right here! said the devil to the boy
And suck in the flavour, suck in the flavour!
A favour, is what I'm offering to you
Sign the document and take the
Favour, the one I'm offering to you
And suck in the flavour, suck in the flavour

Soul chasers on the move, waiting for the kill
My future plan, I was sending it right down to never land
The one who felt the fiend's hand will understand
That my ship will sink
It was written in devil's ink

The insight:

I'm sorry I turned my back on you
Don't know what to do
And why did I turn... ?
God how it burns...
I'm covered in deep blue tonight
I'm sorry that I've turned my back on you
I hope you do forgive me tonight...

To live in this world is no longer my right
The cool morning breeze is no longer my right to feel
This face is yours to blame...
For the bad I've done
So pass me down because I sold my soul

The crime:

To take a life worth living did not help at all
The money I came over they did not catch my fall

Soul chasers on the move, waiting for the kill
My future plan, I was sending it right down to never land
The one who felt the fiend's hand will understand
That my ship will sink
It was written in devil's ink

Remorse:

Now I know that I she'd my tears
All those years
In vain will I die
Coming up in a dream, sitting up in the night
With a cold panic attack and a scream
Although it's hot I'm feeling very cold inside

And when I fall asleep I have no happy dreams
I'm not man, I'm a puppet in a cage
Drinking darkness, eating sorrow
With a knife and a trident

The lie:

I met with the man with the magic eyes,
He took me home just like a son
And made me believe in a paradise,
The other one without a sun

Soul chasers on the move, waiting for the kill
My future plan, I was sending it right down to never land
The one who felt the fiend's hand will understand
That my ship will sink
It was written in devil's ink

The fate of a murderer:

He never could and he never will
-i will never show up in "pleasantville"
He's gonna wake up where the time stand still
-just to find myself living in "the deadville" (the devil)
Soon his job beneath is to
-be a star of the show the devil hosts
And to never come back from his world
-that would be the fear I fear the most!
7. Walking Tall (4:20)
It's only a matter of time
Before you loose it
-and I once believed in fire

And tear me up!
Something burns inside of me

You mark my words, the game is up
And why did you have to show
That it's just a grand illusion?
Why did you ever let me go?
-i'm asking you!

'Cause I'm walking tall,
Marching down this shattered road
I've learned, pain means alive
And I'm slowly breaking through
-without you!

So come clench your fist 'round my heart
And leave me bleeding
It's already ripped to pieces
-blackened on the ground!

You gave me scars that never heal
Oh, why did you hurt me so?
You pathetic little person...
Just one more thing before you go,
-i'm telling you...

'Cause I'm walking tall,
Marching down this shattered road
I've learned, pain means alive
And I'm slowly breaking through
-without you!

'Cause I'm walking tall,
Marching down this shattered road
I've learned, pain means alive
And I'm slowly breaking through
-without you!
8. The Edge of My Blade (6:32)
He came from the mountains up north
And the memory remains like blood on my sleeve
That won't go away
A man from the mountains up north
He ripped of a smile from this little boys face

-when you went away
A little spark grew and the art of hating you

Hold me father
Embrace me with your ever smile
Sole survivor
And shine upon me like a star...

-fear me pagan
As I am coming to end your life
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the colour remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade

A feeling still fresh in my memory
When you closed his eyes
You took out my light as well
Turned heaven to hell
I swore on my family name
I swore I would find him and treat him the same

But I get no peace, my heart can not rest
Until my work here is done

So hear me father
Once again I am talking to you
No need to bother
I must do what I'm destined to do...

-fear me pagan
As I am coming to end your life
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the colour remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade

I've killed you in so many ways
Since the day I saw you in the haze
I've been trying to sleep
But it's hard to do when the ravens are...
... in my head

-why, father?
Why didn't my pain go away?
I am back...
And I'll sleep with my conscience tonight!

I travelled far away from home
I travelled over waters
Just to send him right where he belong
The black ravens showed me the way...

-fear me pagan
As I am coming to end your life
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the colour remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade
9. Pieces (4:27)
-wonders...
They happen every day
For sure, the fact is overwhelming me
In every land
There are witnesses to tell a story

Fate decides what the future hides...
I've read my own prewritten lines!

-and so time goes by and that is why
I know tomorrow will never come!

You are watching the world
While she's falling to pieces
But still you smile...
And every time your babies cry, you hold them tight
So tell me, who is the fool when the curtains fall?
And the future is gone...

-miracles.
It helps you to see the world with different eyes
Suddenly you come to realize that time flies
And you have been a fool!

So take your final breath...
Feeling lonely, with only yourself to blame

But fill your head with happy lies
Say a prayer under the tainted skies!

You are watching the world
While she's falling to pieces
But still you smile...
And every time your babies cry, you hold them tight
So tell me, who is the fool when the curtains fall?
And the future is gone...
You are watching the world
While she's falling to pieces
But still you smile...
And every time your babies cry, you hold them tight
Tell me how do you sleep at night?
Tell me how do you sleep at night?
Tell me how do you sleep at night... ?
