The Inheritance Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Kenneth Gil       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Mother of the Soul (5:39)
Chours:
To be ruled within family
Living a life of wealth
These 20 years behind him
To never feel the need again

How can he live without her strength, she was taken away
His dreams that appear now for her, drown the harder he prays

All too young'

He was told of a walking angel, each would see in the end
He could feel their pain was calling, when the fallen ascend

Enough to feel a fist of diamonds, enough to feel disgrace
This doesn't heal the fall, forsaken, but he steals the untimely death

To be fooled by the new wealth
To find joy m their death
And he awoke the feelings
To never cheat life again

How can he live without her strength, she was taken away
His dreams that appear now for her drown, the harder he prays

In the darkest sun, they come at night, they ride unholy wind
A demon child with tears of pain, the mother of the soul
Lightning strikes, the pouring rain, come crashing down alone
This travesty, the darkness came, this world, he runs away

The darkness is crying his name
And he cannot be reborn
The whirlwind is breaking the silence
And he will never fall

He waited for a life to be the one, hiding his dreams all alone
He'll never be free to watch the sun

They're drifting far apart to tell a tale, hiding his pride from falling down
Crying alone, he is denied

Scourge'

He'll never feel the guilty, estrange is for his time
He cannot hide, he cannot fear, the crickets of the night

To pull together a lawyer's crime, like a fearing sigh
To Inherit the North, the old estate is his!

Walk the angel of fallen worlds, forever asking why
The fatal maiden's scowl is safe, the answer is not here

Mother, father, sister and brother, gone before their time
Through damnation of all that's sacred
Fear, the world, the war, the sign

How can he live without her strength, she was taken away
His dreams that appear now for her, drown the harder he prays

Rise, love the dream, not the dirty wretched wake
Die, sign of evil, words are true and dry
Life, drowning lethal, often feel the fear
Rape, son of filth, he arrives, fear now!
2. Astrid Falls (6:56)
Evening will torment him, enslave his soul
The lonely will never rise, to save the sound
And he will never be alone, never be alone...

Cold winds cross the garden rose, she arrives, she needs to stay
Just to see the calm of her face, he doesn't want to be here alone
Familiar beauty all in time, just to see it all again

He's waited forever now, guiding himself
Deep in the comfort of his sleep
No distance between them now
Together they he, inviting the healing to begin

The visionary's call to pass, she was to save his world tonight
For here he prays with his open eyes, and she's nowhere in his sight
Her scent remains on his clothes, was it a dream or was it real?
Headed for the great escape, no rest until love is found

Astrid falls

Searching relentlessly, to bring her home
He asks the old man, his words tear him away

"Save all the tears that you're crying"
"Go, and leave this alone"

"Reap, you should have never dismissed my drive
I will own your soul, keeping the darkness for myself
Life, you are my prisoner old man, you will tell me what I need
Or I will remove your breath this day"

Cold winds cross the garden rose, she arrives, she needs to stay
Just to see the calm of her face, he doesn't want to be here alone
Familiar beauty all in time, just to see it all again

Like a lair in a crowded house, four walls to hide the screams
Fly to hell, burn him down
Not a care for your begging eyes, even when sedation calls,
For your words and lies

Like a deer in a foreign cove
Nowhere to hide, nowhere to go
Broken down, abandon life
Now he rushes to the church to see the priest

He remembers the night she came, even more than the wasted life
He doesn't want to lose more time, never wants to be alone
He wants to be there for her
Until he dies

He doesn't want be without her
Hear his call

Not to waste more breath this time
Another time

He can never betray her love
Astrid falls
3. Dead for a Day (4:35)
Dark is the day,
Where his thoughts betray,
Weighing on his mind,
And it steals his soul

To place his trust,
With memory's love,
Waiting to align,
Who will heal his soul?

Wait and see,
For a grand return,
He remains alone

Drifting away in the twilight sky,
The novelty will fade away

[Erik:]
[2x]
I wish I could be dead for a day
Just to hear what all the people would say
To find out in the end, who was really my friend
And what the meaning of life's all about

He can't feel for his heart is yearning.
All is lost today
You can hear him cry
Sorrowed sighs through the rolling darkness,
Waiting for the time,
To believe in her

Dreamer's day, when he longs to say,
And take it all in stride,
Sitting alone in his prisoned mind,
The jaded takes its toll again

[Erik:]
[2x]
I wish I could be dead for a day
Just to hear what all the people would say
To find out in the end, who was really my friend
And what the meaning of life's all about

Blood on the lips of his mother
Dead for a day
She warned him that this day would come
Dead for a day
Feeling he doesn't know who to trust
Dead for a day
Sin for his heart is the color red
Dead for a day

Time for the fainter,
Just to hear pathetic cadence of cries
Pray to your savior,
And you'll fear the crippled godsend of lies

[Erik:]
[2x]
Why can't you save me,
Can you feel it in my soul?

[Erik:]
[2x]
I wish I could be dead for a day
Just to hear what all the people would say
To find out in the end, who was really my friend
And what the meaning of life's all about

To be dead just for a day,
To be dead, dead for a day!
To be dead just for a day,
He wished he could be dead!

To be dead just for one day,
Dead for a day!
To be dead just for one day,
To be dead for a day
Dead for a day
4. Dying for the Sun (6:14)
Dying for the sun
Dying for the sun
Dying for the sun
Dying, dying for the sun

Why should he trust her, she's losing control
Why should he hear her, because her lies enrage him more
He can feel the fire, burning inside his soul
Where will her faith reside, 'cause he will never let her go

There's no escape, you'll fear it now
This reward to save her soul, to see him die
He tells the world, and darkness comes
He will never find her now, in his demise

Dying for the sun, he's dying, for the one
He's dying, for the sun
Dying, dying for the sun

Can he heal the lucky one, the one who treads the garden path
Desperation within the means, walk along the fallen leaves
Rise
Come the dying light, the burning white, to say goodnight
Captured now, the shift in tide, the two are his who vomit pride

He does not know what set him free, the stagnation of the dark
Burning neath the beast of dying, strangle the night with nested wire

There's no escape, he'll fear it now
You cannot strip away his soul, He's soon to die
You tear him down, and darkness comes
The priest now sides with his disgrace, beyond this life
5. To the Calling of Blood and Dreams (4:36)
Look away, the morning comes, he will speak before the tortured son, infamy
Look away as the demons call, now here the vow of a desperate man

He couldn't live with his broken heart in a dream, harder to waken on the hour's toll
Searching the sleep of the fallen brave, headed to daylight, those who prey on him
Now the whispers prey on him

She is the woman, confessions from the priest
Just to waken the lifelong years of dark decay
He can hear she's decided not to sleep,
He should thank and accept her feeble words to be

Mindful hour won't pass him by, he believes it's just a game they play
Hiding it all, concealing her, burning the way back to the lonely road
Please be the one who knows

He cannot hear the words that she's screaming, he cannot change the world tonight
And he fears not what he has heard in their old dreams, he knows he cannot save the world!

How can he leave this open for the burning fire
He can see her face
How in the world can he follow her naked truth
He can taste the dire
How can we count the stars of the fallen day
He can hear her voice
The connection to the garden is her soul
He can feel her pain!

If she leaves him now, the aching part of his life
If he could hold her again he would never be wrong, to the end of days
If she believes him now, the sun will return in time
And he will drag her out, out of hell, to his world, in every way

He couldn't live with his broken heart in a dream, harder to waken on the hour's toll
Searching the sleep of the fallen brave, headed to daylight, those who prey on him
When the beautiful is his

He cannot hear the words that she's screaming, he cannot change the world tonight
And he fears not what he has heard in their old dreams, to the calling of blood and dreams
To the calling of blood and dreams
6. The Math of the Myth (3:52)
He can feel the angels, turn away from him
By the lord of darkness calling, she'll never let him see

If ever he arrives, he could still believe
And no one here will tell, and he will never die here
The sounds of the night, clawing at his heart
Telling him to run, never gonna leave here

Calculate the numbers, struggle through the night
Try to prove the ancient folk tale, she'll never let him see

He's telling her to try, never to believe
And no one else but him, never gonna cry here
A demon of the night, she'll never see the right
He doesn't wanna go

[Erik:] "I don't wanna die here, for you"

Free him from her
Long yields pass into the light
Don't run from me
Like a future on the brink tonight
Eight years from now
All the living has to pay the price
Surround with fear, your death day

There hands are disfigured, fingers branch like dead trees
He believes she's a demon, he believes in the witch

He can see in the darkness, her eyes staring him down
Peering in through windows, stalking, from the ides of time

Forever to believe, never he'll deceive
And he won't even try, never gonna die here
Even when she's gone, he will never know
No one will ever tell, never lie here for her
7. Crawling from Validity (4:11)
He's traveling all alone, hearing her cry, his name, in the darkness of the night
He wanders aimlessly for her embrace, tonight, he can feel her guide him home

Rise, crawling from validity, swallow pride and beg to die
Shame, falling from the entity, no sun, no light, to take you there

Somewhere we will fall, the nightmare comes alive

Somewhere down the line they'll meet again
His love, she could never reap the fire
He's waiting here for her, forevermore and then he will wait another year

The look of deceit on her face tells it all, related to the witch of the lore
Incestuous tale of a priest and his kin, a sister giving birth to twins

He must depart to his home
Never to return
He will find your answers there
Travel with concern

A eulogy of caution with a passion for the dead, that will fall into the pool of the bled
Sanctuary's calling for the beasts of fallen children and they perish in the arms of the dead

They perish in the arms of the dead

Rise, crawling from validity, swallow pride and beg to die
Shame, falling from the entity, no sun, no light, to take...
You there

Somewhere we will fall, the nightmare comes alive
Somewhere we will fall, the nightmare comes alive
8. The Wedlock Observation (6:13)
Consumed with desire, approaching the home that made him believe
Everything's silent, the darkness will never deceive

He can be alone in his home, he can hide from the world there
He's staying away from them all, doesn't want to be known there

The open door reveals this hell
Inside the horrors of the night

All the people from the village strewn
A hundred faces that died screaming

He's falling to pieces, he falls to the ground, and he prays it's a dream
He's dying in silence, he's dying to see her again

From the cellar he hears a scream, he can't believe what he finds there
There she stands before him again,

[Erik:] "Please don't leave me alone here"

Now is the time to hear the tale
Finding the truth between the lies
Now is the time to face this truth
He looks upon her with dead eyes

He's falling to pieces, he falls to the ground, and he prays it's a dream
He's dying in silence, he's dying to see her again

[Astrid:]
"I was taken far away, in the night, from mother's arms, my father tried
Buried deep, shameful he, for the evil brought to life, village woman, hide my name

Born like me, was a brother, a different path for the wake
A better life, with higher value, brings the savior of shame
A family of wealth comes calling, adopting the boy as their own
Left only with a promise, you must never return"

It's all so clear, he realizes. As he stands before his twin, with memories of what they've done
Born of incestuous wedlock, She's the child of the curse, given to him, the heart of gold

For the priest filled with fire, draws a stone with delight
Driving force to deliver, his end to arrive in time

He's drowning in fire, he falls to the ground, and he prays it's a dream
Waiting forever, the darkness is welcoming him

They're falling to pieces, he's losing the only thing he's ever loved
He's dying to hold her

[Astrid:]
"You're welcome to die in my arms"

[Erik:]
"Oh, I'm falling to pieces
Falling to pieces
Dying alone, fading forever
Fading forever
Oh, I will be waiting
Don't wait for me"

[Astrid:]
"You will live on through our unborn child"
