Life Cycles Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Dragon Spell (4:09)
I'm still the king of the world

I'll never fall to who's haunting my dreams
I've still got control
You are my enemies
Cause you beg me for mercy
Show no mercy
Show no mercy

I've fought for this kingdom
I'll take all of that is mine
I'll bring the war on the enemies
If you want me, I'm right here

I gave everything
Everything that I have
There's always a war within me
I never let it show, I'll never let my family down
Fight for what you stand for

If you fight and die of those inductions
What was the meaning of it now
I have too much riding on me
To be the man I was born to be

This is a family
We won't crumble at the face of our enemies
Or our families
This is a family
We won't crumble at the face of our enemies
This is a family
Don't fuck with family

We won't fall
I will not ever let this kingdom fall

I gave everything
Everything that I have
There's always a war within me
I never let it show
I'll never let my family down
Fight for what you stand for

If you were me
Would you stand or would you fall?
My sacrifice
My sacrifice

I'm never giving up
For those I love
My sacrifice
My sacrifice

Your dreams have come to an end
Because this was mine and I won't give in
Your dreams have come to an end
Because this was mine and I won't give in

Your dreams have come to an end

I'll never lose sight of what I believe
I'll fight for my friends, my family

We won't fall

I gave everything
Everything that I have
There's always a war within me
I never let it show, I'll never let my family down
Fight for what you stand for

If you were me
Would you stand or would you fall?
My sacrifice
My sacrifice

I'm never giving up
For those I love
My sacrifice
My sacrifice

I'm still the king of the world
I'm still the king of the world
2. Wishmaster (3:47)
We're here to fight.
We're here to die.
We're here to save you life.

What do we say, when our backs are up against the wall?
The empire remains and it will always

We've come from all over the world
We are the ones who stand as one (side by side).
If any man here fears their demise,
Then we've already lost.

WE'RE HERE TO SAVE THE WORLD!

And above all else, we'll hunt the ones
Who seek to destroy it.
You're not alone, you can't be defeated,
We'll protect you when all others fail.

Tell me now, what would you give up?
My family, friends for a brotherhood.
Who stands to gain if we survive?
You probably weren't born just to give your life.

WELCOME TO MY LIFE!

If you make it through today,
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!

And above all else, we'll hunt the ones
Who seek to destroy it.
You're not alone, you can't be defeated,
We'll protect you when all others fail.

I can't believe the cost of what is right.
Reach for the light.
Know that we are here, we'll always survive.

If you come I'll prepared to die,
You've already lost.
If you come here and you give up,
You've already lost.

LOST THE FIGHT!

YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
WELCOME TO MY LIFE!
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!

And above all else, we'll hunt the ones
Who seek to destroy it.
You're not alone in the world, we're the night's eyes.
We'll protect you when all others fail.

I can't believe the cost of what is right.
Reach for the light.
Know that we are here, we'll always survive.

YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
WELCOME TO MY LIFE!
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
YOU MIGHT SURVIVE!
3. Entirety (4:07)
You're all I have!
YOU'RE ALL I HAVE!

I can't decide if I love it or hate it.
Now it's a part of me.
Warmer now, I feel you within me.
It keeps creeping deeper.
It's not something you can prepare for.
I tried to fight it off, you kept pulling me in.
I think I found that one in a million and I can't breathe!

You're all I have!
And I haven't trusted anyone.
Finding out feeling isn't easy.
This is more than I deserve. I know!
I've just gotta believe.

You didn't seem to care when I distanced myself,
So here's the real me!
You didn't seem to notice when I looked away,
You wanted to show me how to believe.

You're all I have!
And I haven't trusted anyone.
Finding out feeling isn't easy.
This is more than I deserve. I know!
I've just gotta believe.

Feelings are a deadly thing.
When you fail to give yourself to something.
You may never know what it's like, to lose everything.

If I lost you, I'd lose everything!
Give yourself and you'll start to believe!
That there is was meaning, that you can trust what you see!
Give yourself and you'll start to believe!
That there is was meaning, that you can trust what you see!
YOU'RE ALL I HAVE!

You're all I have!
And I haven't trusted anyone.
Finding out feeling isn't easy.
This is more than I deserve. I know!
I've just gotta believe.

YOU'RE ALL I HAVE!
This is more than I deserve!
YOU'RE ALL I HAVE!
Feeling isn't easy!
This is more than I deserve!

YOU'RE ALL I HAVE!
And I haven't trusted anyone.
Finding out feeling isn't easy.
This is more than I deserve. I know!
I've just gotta believe.
YOU'RE ALL I HAVE!
4. For Your Health (3:34)
I don't understand why,
but the view from here, is much different when
you're alone
But the view from here, is all I've ever known

I didn't know if this was meant to be
Perfect strangers taking ahold of me
I was searching for the answers right in front of me
I don't know if this is meant to be
Was it fate that chose me to lead?

Is the answer right in front of me?
I think this is what completes me

We are still here
We are right here
So many have come and gone,
We are still here
Finding out what makes a man

What makes a man
These patterns and these thoughts, they seem to control me

I can't define what keeps me going
Alone in a crowd with the lights glowing
I keep hiding behind what's in front of me
What is wrong, wrong with me?
Am I driven to feel this way?

Is the answer right in front of me?
I think this is what completes me

We are still here
We are right here
So many have come and gone
We are still here
Finding out what makes a man

We are still here
We are still here

Pretend to like those around me
People smiling, secretly seething
I pretend I don't hear their voices
As they betray without boundaries

We are still here

We are still here
We are right here
So many have come and gone,
We are still here
Finding out what makes a man
We all know what it means to come home
We are right here
We all know what it means to come home
We are right here

We are still here
We are still here
5. Bar Fight (3:41)
Am I still a burden to you now?
Am I still a burden?

Am I still a burden to you now?
Fading away from sight and sound
What will you say when they take me away
What will you say?

You should have listened
You should have been more careful
your words forced love to crumble
You should have been more careful

Now you'll live with regret for the rest of your life
Gave up when you should have stayed
Now you'll live with regret for the rest of your life
Gave up when you should have stayed, this is goodbye
Good bye

It's so simple, When I tried to explain, you didn't believe
It's so simple, It's so simple
Oh, why do people run? Let's not live life this way
Let's not live life this way

What was the purpose of your destruction

Will you sleep sound at night?
I kept begging for the answers
You could not seem to reply
You could have saved a life

Now you'll live with regret for the rest of your life
Gave up when you should have stayed
Now you'll live with regret for the rest of your life
Gave up when you should have stayed

It's so simple, When I tried to explain, you didn't believe
It's so simple, It's so simple
Oh, why do people run? Let's not live life this way
Let's not live life this way

How could you be so naive?
Not even death could save you from me
Not even death could save you from me
I tried and tried to show you the light
You could have saved a life

It's so simple, When I tried to explain,
you didn't believe
It's so simple

Oh, why do people run? Let's not live life this way
Let's not live life this way
Oh, why do people run? Let's not live life this way
I just wanted you to stay
It's so simple, When I tried to explain
you didn't believe
It's so simple, It's so simple
Oh, why do people run?
Let's not live life this way
6. Life Cycles (4:21)
I'd rather die for what I believe,
Than live a without meaning.

I'd rather die for what I believe,
Than live a without meaning.
I'd rather die for what I believe,
Than live a without meaning.
I'd rather die for what I believe,
Than live a without meaning.

And now that I'm older...
And now that I'm older,
I'm finding out now,
What it means to start over.

Well, it's never gonna be that easy.
I've searched and searched,
But the search lights have left me.
I tried to find a way, I swear I tried,
All I have left is you by my side.

So please take the time
To get inside my mind.

I've longed for the lights,
I've stayed awake, stayed awake through the nights
What if this is all I have?
What if this is all that's left?
What it this is all that's left?
All that's left!

And now that I'm older...
And now that I'm older,
I'm finding out how,
What it means to start over.
I'm finding out now,
What it means to start over.
And now that I'm older,
I'm finding out now,
What it means to start over.

So can you feel it now?
The night the
You can't run from the path you've chose.
So take it in, take in,
All the burdens of the world.

I never thought I'd end up this way.
I never thought I could fall so far away.

So far away!

And now that I'm older...
And now that I'm older,
I'm finding out now,
What it means to start over.
I'm finding out now,
What it means to start over.
And now that I'm older,
I'm finding out now,
What it means to start over.

I'm starting over. I'm starting over.
I'd rather die for what I believe,
Than live a life without meaning.
Meaning. I'm starting over.
7. Evolution (4:25)
I'm back for more
This story's heading for it's final twist
(Heading for it's final twist)
I finally see what it means to cut you out
From the piece I'm left without

I tried to see this through so many times before
But you've always turned away
You're pulling me back
Path for war

Path for war
Trapped in fucking deceit beyond
I can't explain how I tried to splice my mind
I can't explain how much I wish you'd fucking die
(Wished you'd fucking die)

I want to know what you're thinking
When you find yourself alone
Do you even know what it means to be helped?

I'm back for more
I wanna tear you apart
I wanna see you fall to the floor
I wanna watch as you preach
You'll dread the mercy
For then you'll breathe no more
Breathe no more

Tell me what the hell were you thinking
Realize that past's are disgusting

I want to know what you're thinking
When you find yourself alone
Do you even know what it means to be helped?
I never thought that I'd find a way to say to you
I couldn't take anymore
I'd become some thing, a game, replaced every day
I couldn't take anymore

Can't take anymore
I'm not me anymore
I've given more
If you want me

Drag me to hell
Drag me to hell
If you had the chance switch your past
Until the day you'll lose away

I wanna know what you're thinking
When you find yourself alone
Do you even know what it means to be helped?
I never thought that I'd find a way to say to you
I couldn't take anymore
I'd become some thing, a game, replaced every day
I couldn't take anymore

I'm back for more [x5]
8. Hidden Lakes (3:30)
You may not make it home tonight
You may not last another fight
You may not make it home tonight
When you meet your end, walk towards the light
Walk towards the light

Together, together we'll always be
In life and death I will always have peace
I believe you're here with me
You're here with me
Knowing you found the way before the end
Has allowed me to live

Sometimes, you'll think of me and say "I miss you,
The stories you'd tell me"
You'll wish we had more time, you got to say goodbye
YOu gotta live gotta live like I showed you
I'm proud of who you are
And it's not too late
It's not too late

Sometimes I wonder if you're looking down
Have I strayed too far because I'm longing
To find the truth I've always known, show the way,
The way to you
I have so much I need to say
What would you say?
Knowing you found the way before the end
Has enabled me to live

Sometimes, you'll think of me and say "I miss you, the stories you'd tell
Me"
You'll wish we had more time, you got to say goodbye
Don't forget don't forget what I told you
You gotta live gotta live like I showed you
And it's not too late
It's not too late

If you're still there, pice me up, empower me
To stand alone, I'm coming home
I wonder if you'll be there

I miss you
I wonder if you're listening, watching?
Your memory will will never fade
You'll live in me
You'll live through me
You'll live through me

Sometimes, you'll think of me and say "I miss you, the stories you'd tell
Me"
You'll wish we had more time, you got to say goodbye
Don't forget what I told you
You gotta live gotta live like I showed you
I'm proud of who you are
And it's not too late
It's not too late
It's not too late
It's not too late
9. Ambitionary (3:09)
How much longer must I see demise?
Or can you see my past?
Oh
I wish I could have lived, without regrets
But I made, my mistakes so many times
Where do you go when the darkness finds you?
All I want is to see better days
And have my past washed away
All I want is better days

But where do I go? But where do I go?
I need a place to call my own
Where we can we find hope? Where can we find hope?
I need you to show me the road

Why should it be this long?
Another reminder, of how much you've build
Remind yourself you've come this far, you've gone so far
Remind yourself you've come this far, you've gone so far

But where do I go? But where do I go?
I need a place to call my own
Where can we find hope? Where can we find hope?
I need you to show me the road

But where do I go? But where do I go?
I need a place to call my own
Where can we find hope? Where can we find hope?
I need you to show me the road

Why wasted this for me?
Show me where to go
Show me anything, give me everything
Show me where to go
Show me anything, give me everything
You keep pulling anymore, but you can see, destroyer of all

Where do I go? Where do I go?

But where do I go? But where do I go?
I need a place to call my own
Where can we find hope? Where can we find hope?
I need you to show me the road

But where do I go? But where do I go?
I need a place to call my own
Where can we find hope? Where can we find hope?
I need you to show me the road

I need you to show me the road
10. Live a Lie (4:14)
I won't live a lie, I don't hide
I don't hide
I won't let you pull me down
I'll be who I am and I will, I will live
I'm alive

If you think I'll break because you think I'm the same
I won't live a lie, I won't live a lie
You can't keep me this way, I will escape
I won't live a lie, I won't live a lie
Fear will never conquer me
It will guide my way
I welcome this day
Welcome me this way
Fear will never overcome me

Finally, you begin to see, I was built to me more
Never will I settle for your worth
You can't trust what you know, this is just the beginning
I'm right here. You can't deter me
I'm right here. You can't escape me
I'm right here
You'll never find your way out

This is me
This is me

If you think I'll break because you think I'm the same
I won't live a lie, I won't live a lie
You can't keep me this way, I will escape
I won't live a lie, I won't live a lie
Fear will never conquer me
It will guide my way
I welcome this day
Welcome me this way
Fear will never overcome me

So many times,
I've laid by the wayside
While I let them tear at me
It's my time to believe
If you ever believed in something,
It's time you believed in me

If you think I'll break because you think I'm the same

If you think I'll break because you think I'm the same
(I wont live a lie, I won't live a lie)
You can't keep me this way, I will escape
(I won't live a lie, I won't live a lie)
Fear will never conquer me, it will guide my way
I welcome this day (Welcome me this way)
It will never overcome me

I won't let anything come before me
This is who I am, I am alive.
11. Belong (4:07)
I just want to belong
I just want to belong
I just want to belong!

I've been searching for far too long
When I feel I've reached my destination
I can't control these feelings
I just wanna stop reaching

Illuminate the path before me
So I can finally find my way
I've been dying to stop wandering
I just want to know my place

Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough
We'll find a better way
I just want to belong
Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough

Everyday I begin to hate this more
Clinging on to a world so worn
I know this feeling is feeling to familiar
Cary on

Do you know when you've seen it all
The world around you doesn't make sense at all?
You got lost in your progress

Illuminate the path before me
So I can finally find my way
I've been dying to stop wandering
I just want to know my place

Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough
We'll find a better way
I just want to belong
Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough

Here we go here we go, let's take this life
And lets start living
Here we go here we go, let's take this life
And lets start living
Here we go
Let's take this life, let's start living
start living
Let's take this life, let's start living
start living

Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough
We'll find a better way
I just want to belong
Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough
We'll find a better way
I just want to belong
I've searched for far too long
I can't control these feelings
I found my destination
I need to stop reaching
Don't we all just want to belong?
I don't know if I'm strong enough
12. Room 126 (3:55)
There's no sign we'll survive
There's no sign we'll survive
Let me out
They've trapped me here and I'll waste away
While you figure this out
This room won't hold for long.

The world that we knew has come and gone
If we can't win, this will be the end
The world that we knew has come and gone
If we can't win, this will be the end

I never knew, I never knew that this could happen to me
I never wanted this
That something I read about was more than a story
I can feel this taking a hold of me.
Will we survive?
If we stop this now, there's a chance to break away

This is our chance to break away
Break away
This is our chance to break away

Break away

They keep circling around and round these walls
Their faces are cold and lifeless
As they stare back at me
Their only thought is to devour me

This is our chance, can we escape?
I never knew

I never knew, I never knew that this could happen to me
I never wanted this
That something I read about was more than a story
I can feel this taking a hold of me.
Will we survive?
If we stop this now, there's a chance to break away

I've never felt the fear of death, until it reached out for me
I've never felt the fear of death
I've never felt the fear, the fear of death


I never thought that this could happen
That something I read was more than a story

I can feel this taking a hold of me.
Will we survive?
If we stop this now, there's a chance to break away
There's a chance to break away
There's a chance to break away
There's a chance to break, to break away

I never felt the fear of death
13. Astral Plane (3:13)
And I have been here before
I don't understand how I've returned
I have seen where this takes me
I didn't choose this path

Take me home
I've found the road

Take me home
Take me home
I've found my home

Take me to a better place
Where I'm who I was born to be
This wasn't what I envisioned
I'm not who I know I'm Supposed to be

I've searched and searched, I've laid awake at night
I've walked through the darkness
I've ran to the light
I've ran to the light

And there was nothing there but questions I had
With answers I couldn't find
Have I lost my mind?
Is this all there is left to life?
Is this all there is?
Is this it?
Is this all there is left to life?

Take me home
