Symphony X Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 퀴트린       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Into the Dementia (1:01)
Instrumental
2. The Raging Season (5:01)
From whom the Gods destroy they first make mad
casting shadows on our fears
Malicious designs built strong and iron-clad catostrophic
conclusion, judgement closes near

Chaos sets the stage
bitter mouths of violent rage
spinning webs of timeless confusion
help us find our way

Tonight can we scape from this hell
(seasons ragin - sands of time will fall)
conquer the wicked
tonight can we escape from ourselves

Ten-thousand tyrants preach their treachery
striking down the weary and the wise
Swords of oppression sever the artery
of our freedom - victimized

Chaos sets the stage
bitter mouths of violent rage
spinning webs of timeless confusion
help us find our way

Tonight can we scape from this hell
(seasons ragin - sands of time will fall)
conquer the wicked
tonight can we escape from ourselves

Down-cast jaded - the glory has faded
so close your eyes
(locked in the darkness all your life...)
dream a twisted tale - dark and venomous
(...do you really have a reason not to fell this raging season)
so infamous

Watch the raging inferno of serpents rip the flesh
from all your pride and glory
then you die open your eyes - it's true

[Solo]

Chaos sets the stage
bitter mouths of violent rage
spinning webs of timeless confusion
help us find our way

Tonight can we scape from this hell
(seasons ragin - sands of time will fall)
conquer the wicked
tonight can we escape from ourselves
3. Premonition (5:38)
Unlock the doors of silence
scanning eyes turn into stone
pours the wine of hate and enmity

Helpless minds dance in circles
forever frozen within time
then stare into unlit serenity

Endless dreams are all encased in disarray

Through the eyes of time - I see
all the love and tragedy
the breath of fate surrounds me
and bring me to my kness

Through the eyes of time - I see
peace and false tranquility
although my scars - they do
run deep - right here I'll be

Blind visions summond me
return under blackened skies
scorned and scathed by the spirit's song

A shadow forbears warning
reveals a rhyme, then descends
and falls into the black endless sea

Endless dreams are all encased in disarray

Through the eyes of time - I see
all the love and tragedy
the breath of fate surrounds me
and bring me to my kness

Through the eyes of time - I see
peace and false tranquility
although my scars - they do
run deep - right here I'll be

Our inner strenghts will fill our needs
and heal the hearts that still bleed

[Solo]

Through the eyes of time - I see
all the love and tragedy
the breath of fate surrounds me
and bring me to my kness

Through the eyes of time - I see
peace and false tranquility
although my scars - they do
run deep - right here I'll be

Our inner strenghts will fill our needs
and heal the hearts that still bleed
4. Masquerade (4:28)
Shackled in darkness - the forbidden portrait confined to
it's frame
Unbroken silence - a total misfortune and shame

Ragin obsession - this mask of oppression, it hides your
agression from view
This tearing suture renounces the love he once knew

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth
You disguise your insolence
Don't deny insanity - mediocrity

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

A fallen fortress sees him beneath starless skies
Subsiding deeper - the final farewell in his eyes

Unspoken hero - distrusted and thrusted within surmise
Seizing intrusion to unveil his clever disguise

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

[Solo]

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies
5. Absinthe and Rue (7:17)
In your time of dying don't call my name
so you see me as evil it's just the same

Through the windows in my mind
now you're cast in flames

Absinthe and Rue
twisted wings of paranoia
twilight runs through eyes of ignorance

Afflicted, addicted, and wicked
you'll loom in fear
severed, endeavored in trial
time closes near

Obsessing, possessing, confessing consumed by sin
injected, infected by venom that's searing your skin

Through the windows in my mind
now you're cast in flames

Absinthe and Rue
twisted wings of paranoia
twilight runs through eyes of ignorance

Absinthe and Rue
twisted wings of paranoia
twilight runs through eyes of ignorance

[Solo]

Absinthe and Rue
twisted wings of paranoia
twilight runs through eyes of ignorance

Absinthe and Rue
twisted wings of paranoia
twilight runs through eyes of ignorance
6. Shades of Grey (5:41)
Seasons changing now - summer's come
and I'll be on my own
just bear another day

I have wondered - if I can turn back hands of time
I'll try, just try another way

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
but I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
then cast me into shades of gray

Life's an endless stage - wisdom comes with age,
can't you see what mindless games we play

(So the end)
So the end is near - captured by the spirit in the wind
you keep calling out to me

I'll find my way
I'll wee it through

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
but I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
then cast me into shades of gray

[Solo]

When the curtain falls - I'll hold my head up high
and curse you all
such vicious games we play

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
but I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
then cast me into shades of gray

I don't know why my heart keeps calling,
but I really don't want you to stay
I have my reasons to keep from falling
then cast me into shades of gray
7. Taunting the Notorious (3:21)
Don't give me reasons
why you spread your disease like aplague

Caught up in treason
a faith that's misleading and vague

It's so sad our world is breaking down
feeling desires, desires are set in my mind

Your corrupted ways
my sarcastic daze
Parasites infecting us
savage and notorious

Lost in the kingdom
kingdom of pain and my spite
whirlwind of power
power controllng my mind

It's so sad our world is breaking down
feeling desires, desires are set in my mind

Your corrupted ways
my sarcastic daze
Parasites infecting us
savage and notorious

[Solo]

Your corrupted ways
my sarcastic daze
Parasites infecting us
savage and notorious

Your corrupted ways
my sarcastic daze
Parasites infecting us
savage and notorious
8. Rapture or Pain (5:05)
A tearless stare
encased by fear
like a thread my heart is torn
and ripped right from my soul
with no control

Suits in disguise then fades to red
brings a blackened sky to fall
and make you very cold
while you grow old

Gone whithout a trace (gone)
it's left me chained and bound
my heart you thrust a dagger
my life and dreams are shattered
and left in tyranny

Rapture or pain
you spill my blood and take my life away
rapture or pain
all adversions still remain

You've realized
you're not alone
they've took your breath of life
and left your mind to unfold
lifeless and cold

Your thoughts erased
it's death you taste
your searing face
it hides the scars of love

Gone whithout a trace (gone)
it's left me chained and bound
my heart you thrust a dagger
my life and dreams are shattered
and left in tyranny

Rapture or pain
you spill my blood and take my life away
rapture or pain
all adversions still remain

Rapture or pain
you spill my blood and take my life away
rapture or pain
all adversions still remain
9. Thorns of Sorrow (3:55)
Beckoning me through aeons of time - captured by you
in dismay
I try to elude these prisions of flesh - but return to
shattered domains

There's no image in the mirror
Shattered glass impales my soul

She's like thorns of sorrow - ripping through my head
She's like thorns of sorrow - visions turning red

Enchanting me - defying my love - I'm hindered with
penance and pain

False reflection of grandeur and light - leaves my heart
bleeding and stained

There's no image in the mirror
Shattered glass impales my soul

She's like thorns of sorrow - ripping through my head
She's like thorns of sorrow - visions turning red

[solo]

She's like thorns of sorrow - ripping through my head
She's like thorns of sorrow - visions turning red

She's like thorns of sorrow - ripping through my head
She's like thorns of sorrow - visions turning red
10. A Lesson Before Dying (12:07)
A chill grows near you're faced with fear
a darkened day you'll see it clear

your shadows call while you stand tall
watch before me while you fall

Times are changing, rearranging
where's the answer we've all been looking for
transient dreaming do you believe in
I am the answer to it all

where are you heading to time will tell
to a destiny that fate knows well
so fly away

Victim of the silence - wipe the cob - webs from your eyes
beware the season - the lies, the treason, the pain

You're running in reverse now - while struggling to break
free
the path you strayed from can only lead to dismay

Living a timeless tale
Behold the truth unveiled
Passion and glory fill my heart
Knowing my fate

Nightmare of fantasy
Untrue reality
Learning the lesson
as we fight to stay alive

Awakened by the thunder - crashing conscience
through your mind
persistent voices - all evils call out your name

Tears can break the silence - let your doubts
and fears be heard
You're releasing inned peace from your soul

Marching on staff in hand
falling into darkness
carry on through the endless nights calling

Living a timeless tale
Behold the truth unveiled
Passion and glory fill my heart
Knowing my fate

Nightmare of fantasy
Untrue reality
Learning the lesson
as we fight to stay alive

Crying downs your doubts and fears
they say that time just might heal the wounds of love

it replaces shattered traces of dispair
looking out through all the years
they say that time just might heal the wounds of love
it replaces

Love will light the darkness there
bringing some hope into view
it replaces the nameless faces of loneliness that you once
knew

Marching on staff in hand
falling into darkness
carry on through the endless nights calling

Living a timeless tale
Behold the truth unveiled
Passion and glory fill my heart
Knowing my fate

Nightmare of fantasy
Untrue reality
Learning the lesson
as we fight to stay alive
