Ecliptica Lyrics

Submitted by level 이준기
1. Blank File (4:06)
[Tony Kakko]

It is your new best friend, new eye in your private den
And you can find the world inside it every day
They know what you did today, hear everything you say
And when they send you mail,
they know where you will go sometime next day

They know your life, they have a file about you
They built your life, so they...

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Caught in the web again, inside your private den
Where you can go to moon
or meet some people you will never see
You are a file in there, money in an open fair
You're a slave among the slaves, waiting for future with a fear

They know your life, they have a file about you
They built your life, so they...

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Still they try to take over, control my life,
but no one can do it but me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Oh oh oh

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

I am waiting, hoping and praying
to see - how this - will end - when they go down

How can it be, that you cannot see
what they are doing with thee
You are a life, new file in their memory, now they

Know what you like and know what you yearn
but they don't know a thing about me
I'm not that easy, I'm blank file in their memory

Oh oh oh

How can it be, that you cannot see
what they are doing with thee
spending your time, living your life
inside their machines there is one empty file, it is me
2. My Land (4:38)
[Tony Kakko]

My own land has closed its gates on me
All alone in world, it's scaring me

I am here to prove you wrong
I'm accused to something I live for

In my dreamland, there's one who understands
A friendly soul, trusting life in your hand

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave
Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own

My old land is but a pile of sand
Cold and bare but something still is there

Yes, I gave it all I can
Now it's invaded by a stranger

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave
Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own

I'm a (true) patriot, you are my land,
you have my soul, you have all I had
Now I am here, and I want it back

In my dreams, I climb the hills I see
and let a gentle breeze lead me to
plains I once have seen and
Clear blue sky, I swim in lakes I find
I build a house right there
that you can't take, never take away

I am here to claim my land
you can't keep me away, forever

Keep in mind what you have heard today
You might find that you are not so brave

Are you man enough, carrying the load all alone
When others have your own [2 times]
3. 8th Commandment (3:42)
[Tony Kakko]

All those lies suit you. They are custom made to drive
you out of reality. Lies are true for you. You know, what
you do is reaching a point of insanity.

When you wake from your dream you know what is true?
Ring of bell inside your head is playing with your mind

Remember to pray, and what the Bible says and you will
live thru eternity You haven't hear of this?
There is something you missed - That it will cost you so heavily.

You must sleep in the stinking bed that you've made
When you're down where you belong hear what they say, yeah.

Stay for a while, stay forever. Sing for the times you are
bound to betray. Run for your life, run forever, your eyes
tell a lie and the liar must always die.

When you're done with him, you know where you have
been, He will treat us all equally.
Can you feel the fire burning

You must sleep in the stinking bed that you've made.
When you're down where you belong hear what they say, yeah.

Stay for a while, stay forever. Sing for the times you are
bound to betray. Run for your life, run forever, your eyes
tell a lie and the liar must always die. [3 times]
4. Replica (4:56)
[Tony Kakko]

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind
your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the
meaning of this all. Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of
what I used to be. It's easier when you don't see me
standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit
here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steal, the kind them bullets
cannot see, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean, new life to fill
the hole in me. I had no name, last December, Christmas
Eve I can't remember. I was in a constant pain, I saw
your shadow in the rain. I painted all your pigeons red,
I wish I had stayed home instead, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over...

Raising from the place I've been, and trying to keep
my home base clean. Now I'm here and won't go back believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream, I'm floating in a
silent scream. No-one placing blame on me
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be,
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...
5. Kingdom For A Heart (3:52)
[Tony Kakko]

What the hell are you standing there for, expecting
me to help you, when I'm down myself
Waiting my saviour, my world is flooding over, there's
no room for air, I can't breathe, I would give a kingdom
for one more day

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for (just) one more day

What the hell am I waiting here for, expecting you to
come and give away your life
Just for a moment of my time, have a hole where I
should have a heart, I'm made of wood, I'm falling
apart, I would give a kingdom for one more day.

I'd give - a kingdom
For one more day as a king of your world
I'd give a kingdom, for one more day.

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart...

Now I know I will never love you, I'm (a) man without
a heart, I'm not allowed to feel human feelings
I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas, I'd give it
away in a moment. If I only had one moment

I'd give - a kingdom
I'd give a kingdom
I'd give - a kingdom to just one more day

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart

I'd give it all for a heart
if I was a King I would give away my kingdom
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart [repeat]
6. FullMoon (5:08)
[Tony Kakko]

Sitting in a corner all alone,
staring from the bottom of his soul,
watching the night come in from the window

It'll all collapse tonight, the fullmoon is here again
In sickness and in health, understanding so demanding
It has no name, there's one for every season
Makes him insane to know

Running away from it all
"I'll be safe in the cornfields", he thinks Hunted by his own,
again he feels the moon rising on the sky

Find a barn which to sleep in, but can he hide anymore
Someones at the door, understanding too demanding
Can this be wrong, it's love that is not ending
Makes him insane to know

She should not lock the open door
(run away, run away, run way)
Fullmoon is on the sky and He's not a man anymore
See the change in Him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her man... Fullmoon

Swimming across the bay,
the nite is gray, so calm today
She doesn't wanna wait.
"We've gotta make the love complete tonight..."

In the mist of the morning he cannot fight anymore
A hundred moons or more, he's been howling
Knock on the door, and scream that is soon ending
Mess on the floor again...

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore
Sees the change in him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her man

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore
Sees the change in him but can't
(run away, run away, run away)
See what became out of her darling man

She should not lock the open door
(run away run away, run away)
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore

See what became out of her man
7. Letter To Dana (6:01)
[Tony Kakko]

Dana, my darling, I'm writing to you.
'Cause your father passed away, it was a beautiful day
And I don't want to bother You anymore,
I used to hope you'd come back
But not anymore Dana.

My eyes might have betrayed me, but I have seen
Your picture on the cover of a filthy magazine
And I think my heart just cannot handle that
Dana, my darling, would be so bad.

Dana my darling I'm writing to you
'Cause your mother passed away it was a really rainy day
And I didn't mean to bother you anymore
Your mother wished... Come visit your fathers grave, Dana

Your father disowned you because you have sinned
But he did forgive you in condition he was in
And I hope you won't do those things anymore
Dana My darling I'm waiting for

Little Dana O'Hara oh, oh Dana my dear,
How I wish that my Dana was here
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
to travel away, far away

No, you can't surprise me anymore, oh oh
I've seen it all before
But it seems I cannot let you go
Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana

And I think that I told you, I'd wait for you forever
Now I know someone else's holding you,
so, for the first time in my life - I must lie
Lie's a sin, mess that I am in,
Love is not the thing I feel know
I promise you... I won't write again 'til the sun sets
behind your grave

Dana, oh, Dana I'm writing to you, I heard you passed
away it was a beautiful day
I'm old and I feel time will come for me, my diary's
pages are full of thee

Oh Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
How I wish that my Dana was here
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
to travel away, far away

Little Dana O'Hara oh, Dana my dear,
How I wish that my Dana was here
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day
to travel away, far away [2 times]
8. UnOpened (3:43)
[Tony Kakko]

Another misspelled rhyme
written in the book of time
In one page I've spent all my life
Ink ain't even dry. I've been living in a lie?
How could I trust in someone of your kind?

And I got today another letter in the mail
I can't read it here, not today
And when years go by
the unopened letter meets my eye
I'm older and wiser, but still afraid

What if I read it and it is - full of love
How can I face it if I am wrong

Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?

I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all

Oh oh oh

What if you'll tell me that I am wrong

Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?

I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all

Do you feel? Do you care about me?
(...)
I am here, would you come and find me, yeah
Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?

(enveloping) I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all
Do you feel? Do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?
I am here, would you come and find me
does your writing guide me thru this all
9. Picturing The Past (3:37)
[Tony Kakko]

In a house where no one never sleeps,
lays a man who sees more with his eyes
Picturing the past before him,
in a bed, alone, with clothes on
Paying for service he doesn't really need

With his eyes, he sees more love and lust
more tears, far too much to handle
Can't tell a soul, not this time, they'd lock him right up
Too much of burning bushes too much for his weak soul

In his mind, oh so jaded, he's gone too far behind
Of all the visions seen, this one makes him scream

He cannot live neither die in this world
Burning sensation inside, you know how that hurts?
Making up for the crimes of your life
With scythe as your sword,
you must fight 'till the end of time

Don't look behind, or you will fall through the time
Only time can make you see behind of the curtain hiding
secrets. Your time is up when you see the light

You can live as a noble man but when time,
You won't be left behind

With the sound of time ringing in his head,
He leaves the house where no-one sleeps
Job well done knowing that at least one will be pleased

Hiding is always useless, pictures will fade with time

Seeking for a winner of the day, prize of the life is here
Of all the visions seen this one makes him scream

He cannot live neither die in this world
Burning sensation inside, you know how that hurts?
Making up for the crimes of your life
With scythe as your sword,
you must fight 'till the end of time [2 times]
10. Destruction Preventer (7:39)
[Tony Kakko]

I'm at home where my coat's hanging,
I'm a shepherd of raising sun
I believe and trust in my land,
I control, I am in charge of
Everyones future, red button is mine

Miss the times when I was roaring
in the center of all mankind
I said how they should live your life,
I controlled, I was in charge, now
I think the red storm will rise and destroy us all.

Heat in the center, destruction preventer
If you release one, you release 'em all
You can't defend Her, kneel down and surrender
Your end is at hand, if they blow

If you go and have their way now,
you will never have your choice
Catch a breath of air in your lungs,
it might be your never get to
do it again because this now this is the end, yeah!

Oh oh oh

Yesterday I saw a light, moving fast across the sky
Now I see glow, left and right,
Stars are falling down tonight, I fear...
And the pouring rain, eating my green grass,
leaving a stain
Never healing back to be the same

Now tell me who won here tonight
The price, of winning worthless fight
We'll make the same mistakes again
Unless, this is truly the end

Heat in the center, destruction preventer
If you release one, you release 'em all
You can't defend Her, kneel down and surrender
Your end is at hand, if they blow [3 times]
