Sworn to a Great Divide Lyrics

Submitted by level 퀴트린
1. Sworn to a Great Divide (3:31)
'cause I won't take what I give
I've sworn I'm better within
Not the last time it keeps coming back
Building knowledge, gaining strength
A part of the Jekyll, a part of the Hyde

Fear itself is bigger than the seed
It bares resemblance to the mouths that I feed

I'm sworn to a great divide, sworn to a great divide

[Chorus:]
How will I turn when it beckons to me?
Can I turn myself from home?
Well, it's time to decide is that really the key
All that matters, I can do this on my own...

So now to complete this journey towards the back of my head
Inevitable, the disaster comes as quickly as it came
Inevitable dangers, inevitable crimes
Considered a victim, a wide open file

When the truth just hurts, you will confess, not deny
Incinerate, illuminate, either way is just fine
Truth shall set you free and I won't push it or let it be
Master the puppet or cut off the strings self indulgence
What a beautiful thing

I'm sworn to a great divide, sworn to a bottomless tide

[Chorus]

(I can feel it's coming the way
Here it comes now, one, two, three GO!)

[Solo]

I'm sworn to a great divide, sworn to a great divide...

[Chorus]
2. Exile (3:48)
Please don't put it into words
'Cause I fear what you're thinking
...It's gonna make it hurt
You better not try to make me
Believe in someone new

[Chorus:]
Faithless
On my way
Defenceless
From my heart, won't you be
Heartless, here with me
Breathless, from this night's misery
This night will start the Exile... RUN!

Now you tell me what it was worth
Was it meant to be broken
The circle that wouldn't shed a single tear
And now you wanna redirect me from the face of the earth
Not willing to share your time
Not near
Not far
I'm just a spectator, once loved
Just fear
Just scars
A sheer introduction to what I've lost, to what I've lost...

[Chorus:]
Faithless
On my way
Defenceless
From my heart, won't you be
Heartless, here with me
Breathless, from this night's misery
(from this night's misery)
One more endless night...

To notice all the things I have to be...

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Faithless
on my way
Won't forget...
From my heart, won't you be
Heartless, here with me
Breathless, from this night's misery
This night will start the exile... RUN!
3. Breeding Thorns (3:53)
You have not seen the last of me
I'm breeding thorns
I'll follow your footsteps down below
I will trust all my instincts and bring it home.

Does it appeal to you now as a part of the violation?
That wherever it takes you, you won't be able to choose.

I will carry the message, it will swallow you whole

[Chorus:]
You ain't never gonna tell again
Caught as the founder of the emptiness
It must have made you stocked
whenever my pride was taken, again and again...

Again and again

Now put your envy in motion, one step at a time
I wanna see the closure when your access is denied

I will bury the damage, I will drench the device

[Chorus]

Now I want you to tell me (tell me again), do you see what I see?
'cause it's so damn obvious to me

[Solo]

(Whenever a promise taken...)

Won't you tell me that it's raw?

[Chorus]

You ain't never gonna tell again.
4. Your Beloved Scapegoat (3:58)
So the idol you preached
Has turned to nothing
It was making your way through the dust when searching
You never thought it would give you up
Your beloved scapegoat
You never thought it would interrupt
Your sweet escape...

[Bridge:]
Those were the times when you cranked it all up
You soared for the moment, without wings to lift up...

[Chorus:]
I'm crossing that line with a state of mind
One more night missed out
As if I was blind to the fact
It won't wait...
Won't you carry me home?

Did you do it all for nothing
Or did it make you sure of something
No matter the subjection
Or the mystery of life was just put on hold

You will alway treasure the things
That reject you and possess you
Breeding new life through the eyes of the insane
And it all comes down to you...

[Bridge:]
Those were the times when you cranked it all up
You soared for the moment, without wings to lift up...
But tonight...

[Chorus:]
I'm crossing that line with a state of mind
One more night missed out
As if I was blind to the fact
It won't wait...
Won't you carry me home?

Nothing can touch such a mind in distress
Won't you find another bright solution
Crossing that river, get away with what's left...
Eternally stuck in the realm of confusion...

[Solo]

But tonight...
I'm crossing that line with a state of mind
One more night missed out

As if I was blind to the fact
It won't wait...
Won't you carry me home?

[Chorus:]
I'm crossing that line with a state of mind
One more night missed out
As if I was blind to the fact
It won't wait...

Won't you carry me home, carry me...
5. The Pittsburgh Syndrome (2:45)
I woke up that morning
Feeling slightly stressed
Getting in an urge to just bail out completely pissed

What did I know?
That night we made our way
Through the darkness
And the shame

[Chorus:]
Don't let yourself run away
Cause we have another game to play
That night you would make us say:
"Fuck all the details, get on with the show"

It doesn't matter if the mind's at stake
Cause we had another round to make
There was no way we could fail
Fuck all the details, get on with the show

The Pittsburgh Syndrome!

An hour of destruction
Intoxicated bliss
Moments of sobriety
Would cease to exist
A sudden turn
Would make that city burn with souls on fire
Relentless desire

[Chorus:]
Don't let yourself run away
Cause we have another game to play
That night you would make us say:
"Fuck all the details, get on with the show"

It doesn't matter if the mind's at stake
Cause we had another round to maker
There was no way we could fail
Fuck all the details, get on with the show

The Pittsburgh Syndrome!

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Don't let yourself run away
Cause we had another game to play
That night you would make us say:
Fuck all the details, get on with the show

It doesn't matter if the mind's at stake
Cause we had another round to make
There was no way we could fail
Fuck all the details, get on with the show
6. I, Vermin (3:36)
Hide away from the restless
They're making trails as they've failed once again
Behind that colony of well shaped nightmares
Is where the vermin depends

[Bridge:]
High and low
They'll bring the tooth and nail
Fast or slow
Will you give me just one damn second to bail out of reach?
Before I'll do as you please... cause...

[Chorus:]
Me eyes call for definition
They will capture the vile as they seek
Down low lurks the opposition
I just hope you won't categorize me

The truth is ugly, raw and malignant
The message is as cold as despair
'Cause you're no better than anyone I've ever known
If only love could be real...

[Bridge:]
High and low
They'll bring the tooth and nail
Fast or slow
Will you give me just one damn second to bail out of reach?
Before I'll do as you please

High and low
They'll bring the tooth and nail
Fast or slow
one damn second to bail out of reach?
Before I'll do as you please

'Cause I might be wrong...
Am I the only one who sees that the damage is done
And it won't be long...
Before I lose my faith and make a run become like you...

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
My eyes call for definition
They will capture that vile as they seek
Down low lurks the opposition
I just hope you won't categorize me

High and low
They'll bring the tooth and nail
Fast or slow
Will you give me just one damn second to bail out of reach?
Before I'll do as you please

High and low
They'll bring the tooth and nail
Fast or so slow
Give me just one damn second to bail out of reach?
Before I'll do as you please
7. Light Discovering Darkness (3:48)
Light, time is on my side
Well you better believe it's true
Cause you can't make me run

They call it life
Covered 'till it makes you blind
Do you wanna make the trip outside
Then you better start running

I won't let it distract me...

[Chorus:]
Out...
I can't believe it's true
You better just shut it...
Out...
They won't let me pull it through
Shut it... out
Can I push my luck on you
Don't shut me out...
Again...
'Cause you better shut it out...

Define...
The shelter as the time goes by
It will change 'till you can't decide
Now you're left without nothing...

I won't let you distract me...

[Chorus:]
Out...
I can't believe it's true
You better just shut it...
Out...
They won't let me pull it through
Shut it... out
Can I push my luck on you
Don't shut me out...
Again...
Cause you better shut it...

I feel it too, I feel it
I feel it too, no I can't see anything true...

I won't let it distract me...
I won't let you distract me...

[Chorus:]
Out...
I can't believe it's true
You better just shut it...
Out...
They won't let me pull it through
Shut it... out
Can I push my luck on you
Don't shut me out...
I can't believe it's true
They won't let me pull it through
Don't shut me out...
Out...
Don't shut me out...
Again...
Cause you better shut it...
8. As the Sleeper Awakes (4:16)
The decision is mine, will I remain the same
The cost of getting forced into something that used to be a game
The fragments of joy, the fragments of faith
I can still recall when I feel that...
I'm present, I just know
If there's anything I should regret
I would've been told
Counting hours, counting days
Will you listen, will you play
Is there anyone, who can get it done
Taking me back to the place that I once belonged
What if tomorrow was gently taken
Away from me, away from me...

Awaking the memories...
Was I meant to get old...
Repressing the agonies...
Start breaking the mold

[Chorus:]
And the faith, comes back to life
Still waiting for, a constant thing to react
But I will save myself some of the time
Keep aiming for, a constant thing to react

As the sleeper awakes

Mesmerized by the memories that walk by my side
Shelter comes easy
As soon as sadness sets in
By an impulse the search will begin

Searching, collecting all the things
I possess a Detecting, the insight I've earned in distress
Learning, finally I know how to breathe
Turning, turning away from the greed...
So unpleasant, it strikes whenever I call
So relentless, as I fall
A grand awakening, will kill it all
Nevertheless
I'll be my own precious god...
I can't resist, the things I've missed
And I'll make sure that it will last the time, I will insist
What if tomorrow, was taken away from me
Away from me, away from me

Awaking the memories...
Was I meant to get old...
Repressing the agonies...
Start breaking the mold
(Start breaking the mold)

[Chorus:]
And the faith, comes back to life
Still waiting for, a constant thing to react
But I will save myself some of the time
Keep aiming for, a constant thing to react

As the sleeper awakes
9. Silent Bullet (3:24)
Pay not attention
For what it's worth
'Cause whatever I'll say
Turn into dirt
Here comes the sane
Here comes the remains
Ball and chain
Here comes the remains
Here comes the sane
Here comes the remains
Ball and chain
It's all the same

Since when did my life have a meaning?
Since when did I have a choice?

To make my way through this ravaged landscape
As a disposable toy

The sun will embark
With a trembling notion
Claiming I once had it all...

[Chorus:]
Time, giving it time
We are still miles apart
Insatiable
It's just fine, aware of what's mine
Can't make it more obvious
The snare broken by lust

Since when did my life have a meaning?
Since when did I have a choice?

To make my way through this ravaged landscape
As disposable toy

You've had your countless hours
I've had my moments of grace
But every time it devours
It'll catch that ugly face

The sun will embark
With a trembling notion
Claiming I once had it all, but...
I reach for defiance, I reach for despair
There is nothing that can keep me from making the ultimate sacrifice
All I want, all I would ever dare to accomplish
Is in the hands of the deceiver...

[Solo]

[Chorus:]
Time, giving it time
We are still miles apart
Insatiable
It's just fine, aware of what's mine
Can't make it more obvious
The snare broken by lust

Giving it time
We are still miles apart
Insatiable
It's just fine
10. Sick Heart River (4:11)
Leaning against what' next to me
Have no fear, won't see
Will it eat me up or bring me down
I'll gradually make up my mind, my mind...

Revolution within myself
I'm puzzled, still overwhelmed
By the stories that you would tell
They always send me something
Revolution within myself... within myself...

Let me give my best, I won't depend
This time I will make another plan to find
What's left and nothing less, still I won't tread
I'll find my own way to make it all worthwile

Call, call on me darkness
Wait, wait on me now...
Won't you say...
Say that I'm sorry
'Cause I won't wait

I've found another form
It's breeding life
It must have been there
The whole time when I was dead
'Cause I was pledged to emptiness
And now I've let myself
To see all the thins
I just didn't expect

Still I remember, still I repent
I'd walk through
The never the never
Despite my descent

Reborn, acknowledging the part of me that once was lost
I have repressed, too many years, my utopia was within my grasp

Doomed in absentia, left to be sentenced
Still rising to cherish, all the things I have left...

[Solo]

Call, call on me darkness
Wait, wait on me now...
Won't you say...
Say that I'm sorry
'Cause I won't wait
11. 20 More Miles (4:36)
Here lies the quest
Right upon you
It's time to make a stand
Now, whether you like it or not
You better deal with it once again
This time it's essential
This time it's for real
In life there's just questions
Successively wasting your time
A gradual restraint of the mind

I let my feelings show, don't know where I'm at
It doesn't give you the right to use me...
I know I'm better than that...

My emptiness fills the holes of your predictable questions...
So give me no lectures, don't you sell me your kind

[Chorus:]
20 more miles in the rain
20 more getting drained
I can't redeem myself
But I still can figure it out

20 miles in the rain
20 more getting sane
I shouldn't reveal myself
But I still could figure it out

Don't let me go through this with nothing
Nothing to salvage a possible fall
Though I still have my conscience to guide me
It concerns me enough to believe

I let my feelings show, don't know where I'm at
It doesn't give you the right to use me...
I know I'm better than that...

My emptiness fills the holes of your predictable questions...
So give me no lectures, don't you sell me your kind

[Chorus:]
20 more miles in the rain
20 more getting drained
I can't redeem myself
But I still can figure it out

20 miles in the rain
20 more getting sane
I shouldn't reveal myself
But I still could figure it out

[Solo]

20 more miles in the rain
20 more getting drained
I can't redeem myself
But I still can figure it out

20 miles in the rain
20 more getting sane
I shouldn't reveal myself
But I still could figure it out
