Esoteric Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level dImmUholic
1. Deathlike Overture (Intro) (1:26)
A glimpse over this field of sorrow
It's more than meets the eye
But in the eye of the beholder
It's telling secrets and a lie
There is no room for mistakes
Tresspassing to the point of no return
Voices from within
Are my only witnesses to this madness

The truth is hard to see here
As I am twisting your minds
If I fall
I'm taking it with me down
Esoteric remains

All eyes on me
The logic beats the word
Awaiting to see
Endurance beats the restless
I'll never give in
It would mean an impossible ending
The breakdown of me
Must never occur
Must never occur

A vague premonition
That is all there is
Escalating to a nightmare
But here's nothing to see...

A vague premonition
That is all there is
Escalating into a nightmare
But here's still nothing to see

I'm giving you nothing instead of something
Or was there anything I forgot?
Hesitation is never an option
Then in a second it's all over...

The truth is hard to see here
As I am twisting your minds
When I fall
I'm taking it with me down
Esoteric remains
2. Esoteric (4:44)
Invested everything in expectations
Gave away it all
Infested is the outcome
But still it's craving for more

Consideration is
What is feeding it
An everlasting
Stream of doubt
Degeneration process
Is commencing
And it is taking its toll

Rise and decay
There is no escape
...
We should pay the price

In times like these
Diminished in a second
The warning came to late
Without reaching it's final destination

...no where
wanting caution for life
like a stab in the back
digging out, everyone cheer

Suppressed, really?
What is there more to see?
Suppressed...

It was just an illusion

glancing with an empty stare
i just cannot believe
focus attention
this is for real, this is now
by now there is no turning back
ones need is the others greed
no one walks away, from this alive
3. Rise and Decay (6:10)
Embrace the darkness
As the night appears
A time I no longer fear
I inhale the cold air and feel how it's soothing my soul one last time

Banned from this world of silence
Now lost to the world below
Don't utter a word
Just go
Go

Nevermore shall we return
Me, myself and I
It's time to let the old world burn
It's time to let go of control

At this point there is nothing holding us back
Listen to the voice within
Close your eyes and let go
Feed the flames and watch them grow

Banned from this world of silence
Now lost to the world within
Don't utter a word
Just go
Go

What is there to mourn?
The effort was a waste
Don't try to comprehend
Answers there are none
Answers there are none

Exemption awaits
As the ending scene is closing in
Go now
And forever be gone
A masterpiece of failure
Your work here is done
4. Let the Old World Burn (4:10)
Embrace the darkness
As the night appears
A time I no longer fear
I inhale the cold air and feel how it's soothing my soul one last time

Banned from this world of silence
Now lost to the world below
Don't utter a word
Just go
Go

Nevermore shall we return
Me, myself and I
It's time to let the old world burn
It's time to let go of control

At this point there is nothing holding us back
Listen to the voice within
Close your eyes and let go
Feed the flames and watch them grow

Banned from this world of silence
Now lost to the world within
Don't utter a word
Just go
Go

What is there to mourn?
The effort was a waste
Don't try to comprehend
Answers there are none
Answers there are none

Exemption awaits
As the ending scene is closing in
Go now
And forever be gone
A masterpiece of failure
Your work here is done
5. Darkness Descending (7:09)
Questions remain unanswered
The will to prevail grows stronger
To now know becomes a failure
Proceeding with blindfolded eyes it seems

Impossible to break through
Decisions made to shatter this heaven
Reluctantly it's made so clear
That it's never meant

To come in from another side
To have a lock from another angle
Showing the signs of a great disaster
But who will master

The perception of life...
Reduced the further we go

Witness another fall
Indecision abundant
Darkness descending
A disease neverending
Scars burnt unto our skin

Cover it all within
Facing the facts in denial
Lost to the creation of time
As allegiance is sworn

The inconvenience (upon)
Is taking its toll

Travel through excess
An evocative ride between evident fears

Coming in from another side
Having a lock from another angle
Contemplating the great disaster
That no one will master

The timeline has come to an end
Replace and proceed

Witness another fall
Indecision abundant
Darkness descending
A disease neverending
Scars burnt unto our skin
This is another fall
Indecision abundant
Darkness descending
A disease neverending
Scars are one with our skin

One with our skin
6. Seclusion (3:56)
The world moved out of my mind
I made it fiction
When I should have given it time
But still there was no caution
Acting like someone else

Restraining the bitterness
The ironwall won't give in easily
Emptiness, caught while burning
Solitude, live by learning

Bargain for more
With every step further
Withdraw from sanity
And make friend with misery
As the last ditch in this mystery

Realizing the extent
Watching destruction with grief
It will never be the same again
So where is the relief?
Where is the end?
7. Misery's Supremacy (7:10)
When everything's pushed to the verge
Frequently, impatient
And you are searching for a way out
Transparent, indistinct
Not always so obvious

The true colors are shining through
Deterrent coherence
Shifting to black or white
Inverted inwardly
Reveal the hidden side of you

Like it wasn't enough...
...now burning at both ends
After this you just might be alone

Beware
Prepare
Corroded grounds lying ahead
Erasing is not the cure
The decision is all yours

It's impossible to forget
What has been
Pushed further, down in the gutter
Misery's supremacy

Time has come to choose your side
Restricted, limited
The path is divided here
Engender self defense
Asking for a final solution
Indirect, incorrect
No matter how this turns out
Horrid does disturbance
Either way it's a scar to heal

Didn't know what to expect from the inception
Resurrection
The damnation
Must be broken, must be broken

Curse the inaccuracy
Improvise a way out
To retrospect
You will know if
It was the right
Thing to do then

Deal with the existence
Emptiness, loneliness
You won't just go on after this
Denial, withdrawal
The illusion won't hold much longer

No it wasn't enough...
...burned out
Now you're on your own...
...burned out
8. Under a Pitch Black Sky (4:52)
Alternate reality
Digging deeper and deeper
Construct emptiness
Out of nothingness
And erase the compassion
Fragments in time
Moments irreplaceable
What's yet to be found
Surrenders to the ignorant

In order to be free
The mind is set to believe

Under a pitch black sky
Where the light is all so absent
With despair in sight
A growing form of indifference

In broad daylight
Zombie-like we walk
Seconds in a decade
Is giving life to the lifeless
It's inside, it fails
The diversion is relocating
And taking a new form
Claiming for even more

Construct emptiness
Out of nothing
And erase the compassion
It's inside, it fails
The diversion is relocating
And taking a new form
Claiming for more...
Even more

The skyline is fading
Surroundings are lost
It is a distorted vision
Addicted to those who proceed
9. Linger In Doubt (5:18)
Everything can lose its meaning
Sometimes there is a reason why

Words on the screen...
Those words on the screen
Revealing something and still
Telling nothing
One sentence after another
Searching for you

Something is wrong here, somebody must know
Too torn inside to see it with non judging eyes
Feed us more with these words on the screen
What do we do?

Where do we go?
When answers run out
Left alone
Linger in doubt
Nothing seems to make sense anymore
You disconnect from reality

Searching just to find another way
To explain how and when, where and why
Do you deny?
The words on the screen tell something different
Do you chose to believe?

When answers run out
Left alone
Linger in doubt
Nothing seems to make sense anymore
You disconnect from reality

Silence is broken again
Awakening the monster inside

An indication got hold of you
It was seducing your mind
The first level is now clear
But lies got you nowhere

Left alone
Linger in doubt
Nothing seems to make sense anymore
You disconnect from reality

When answers run out
Left alone
Linger in doubt
Nothing seems to make sense anymore
You disconnect from reality
10. The Legacy of the Defeated (7:21)
So much in vain you might think
When it's over everything is lost
Too late to negotiate
Accept or regret it
What once was so cold
Is melting and vanishing

The grand scheme has failed
And the wrath has only begun
Fierce and aggressive
It's piercing through

Who will remember?
The legacy of the defeated
In the long run
It's collecting years in the dust

Overwhelmed by the massive appearance
A breathtaking setback
Over and over
The last scene repeats
Caught barehanded
And disarmed by reality

Emptiness
Silence
What is left
Emptiness
And silence
Is what is left
Images slowly fading

Truth detected
By others neglected
It's like a virus spreading inside
Eating itself out
What's written in blood
Is worth nothing when it's forgotten
