Hydra Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Let Us Burn (5:13)
The darkness has come to the roses
The fire is reaching the air
The colours that I have created
Are suddenly flying away

I'm not fighting myself, will not follow
'Cause my choices are mine, it's my fate
And I'll never bow down from the sorrow
I'll face all that is coming my way

The lying, the devil, the silence
Embracing the world on the edge

Let us burn
Let us burn
The night in the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

I'm searching no more for tomorrow
I reach for the skies while I can
The unknown will always be waiting
My last day I'll jump in its hands

I'm not fighting myself, will not follow
'Cause my choices are mine, it's my fate
And I'll never bow down from the sorrow
I'll face all that is coming my way

The lying, the devil, the silence
Embracing the world on the edge

Let us burn
Let us burn
The night in the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn

Why, why don't you let me burn?
Why don't you come down
And break out and let me burn?

Oh why, why don't you let me burn?
Why don't you let me burn?
Why don't you let me burn?

Oh why?
Chasing the demons in my mind
Oh why me?
Waiting for chains to throw me to the ground

The darkness has come to the roses
And the fire is reaching the air

Let us burn
Let us burn
The night in the skies here tonight
Let us burn
Let us burn
In this fire that makes us yearn
We're fighting our fear of the silence
We're running through walls where they stand
Let us burn
Let us burn
Let us burn
2. Dangerous (4:53)
I know I won't change, I have tried
Was feeling so caged, hands tied
I can't find anything feeling so right, it's blinding hope

The Reaper is close, save a spot
A matter of time, can't deny
I won't try to run, run, run
This destiny's mine

The countdown has begun
the walls are falling down
my life is on the line
the fear is mine...

It's dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It's dangerous, it's what you like
It's what you'll die for to live this life
We're going on and we'll never stop
We're going on till our worlds collide
It's dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

I know it's not safe, close my eyes
I search for the edge of Earth
'cause that's the only place I'll ever find that makes me hope

A thief in the night, out of sight
It's out there waiting to ignite
the favor will rise, rise, rise
taking over my mind

The countdown has begun
the walls are falling down
my life is on the line
the fear is mine...

It's dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It's dangerous, it's what you like
It's what you'll die for to live this life
We're going on and we'll never stop
We're going on till our worlds collide
It's dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous

Nothing matters anyhow
It's like I'm floating on the ground
Into the hands, there I dive
With my life flashing by
Like the time is slowing down
When the world is out of sight
All the memories in my mind
Won't leave me behind
It's dangerous... (dangerous)
It's dangerous... (dangerous)
It's dangerous!

It's dangerous to sacrifice
It makes your blood run to throw the dice
It's dangerous, it's what you['re] like
It's what you'll die for to live this life
We're going on and we'll never stop
We're going on till our worlds collide
It's dangerous
So dangerous
Dangerous
3. And We Run (3:50)
It burns into your heart, the darkness that you fear.
You were never free, and you never realized.
And love is a word you've never heard.
Your heart is cold cause it burns,
the desire to leave the mind.

Take your breath 'til nothing's left.
Stars of life upon your chest.
And I know you wherever you go.

And we run 'til we've had enough.
And we run for this killing love.
And we run, tell me how to run.
And we run 'til we break down.
And we run 'til we fall apart.
And we run til we've had enough.

Don't blink, you'll miss it.
Lift up your head.
We gotta get gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
Don't blink, you'll miss it.
Lift up your head.
Too late, we gone.
Yeah, we outta here.

And we run 'til we've had enough.
And we run for this killing love.
And we run, far ahead we go.

I'm a break these chains, ran through the rain.
Never looked back, never quit, worked through the pain.
This blood in my veins run cold when I hate.
Give enough to keep sane but I never lose hope.
This is my time now, no time for tears to celebrate.
Put it in the air right now.
Never back down, you'll never wear my crown cause it weighs too much and I crush every motherfucking thing I touch.
This is what I've never loved so much.
Get involved what's the worst stand up.
Here my mic before I ever get far.
Man in lights, you lost all my trust.
Now it's time to face all of us.
Get in line just to spar with us.
And it feels so far from us,
just take my hand and run.

And we run 'til we've had enough.
And we run for this killing love.
And we run, tell me how it's enough.
And we run 'til we break down.
And we run 'til we fall apart.
And we run 'til we've had enough.

Yeah, we out of here.

Don't blink, you'll miss it.
Lift up your head.
We gotta get gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
Don't blink, you'll miss it.
Lift up your head.
Too late, we gone.
Yeah, we outta here.

And we run 'til we've had enough.
And we run for this killing love.

Don't blink, you'll miss it.
Lift up your head.
We gotta get gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
Don't blink, you'll miss it.
Lift up your head.
Too late, we gone.
Yeah, we outta here.
4. Paradise (What About Us?) (5:22)
There’s no sense; the fire burns
When wisdom fails, it changes all
The wheel embodies all that keeps on turning

Blood red skies, I feel so cold
No innocence, we play our role
The wheel embodies all where are we going

Pre-refrain:
All in all you’d expect the wise to be wiser
Fallen from grace, all and all I guess
We should have known better, ‘cause…

Refrain:
What about us, isn’t it enough?
No, we’re not in paradise
This is who we are; this is what we got
No, it’s not our paradise
But it’s all we want
And it’s all that we’re fighting for
Though it’s not paradise

You and us, or I and them
There comes a time to take a stand
The wheel is watching all; it keeps on burning

The venom works, it’s like a curse
A Trojan horse, when will we learn?
The wheel embodies all; that keeps returning

Pre-refrain

Refrain
5. Edge of the World (4:55)
Can I swallow the soil,
Make it all beautiful?
Can I carry it, carry it, carry it now?

The truth can't bare the sunlight.
You're afraid for the day it does.
Hell when I told you so,
I got burn, burn, burned again.

Heaven forbid that my heart is forsaken.
Hope in the end truth prevails.

I'm gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Feel that I'm gonna get home if I try.
I'm gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Need to find my way home, home.

He earns fire as a god
But I believed in your heart
And I'm leaving you, leaving you, leaving you now.

The truth can't bare the sunlight.
And don't pretend to be my guide.
Heard you said you'd change it over
But I got burn, burn, burned instead.

Heaven can wait cause my soul is forsaken.
Hope in the end truth prevails.

[2x]
I'm gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Feel that I'm gonna get home if I try.
I'm gonna run to the edge of the world, run to the edge of the world.
Need to find my way home, home.

Just to fall out, no more rain.
Once upon a time.
6. Silver Moonlight (5:17)
Turn around, open your eyes
Can't move on, the fear is tying me down
Open your eyes
It's alright...

I'm hell bound in this life
Keep fighting this endless war
It's always been like this I don't know why

Enslavement of your mind
Your fear, it ties me down
Going down
I won't bow, no!

Screaming at the walls of fire
They're closing in on me (Closing in on me)
I'm hungry for the burning of
The silver moonlight
It's where I wanna be (It's where I wanna be)

Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free (I'm still running free)
In the silver moonlight
I can breathe
Wooooo
(I can breathe)
Wooooo

These days are lonely now
Breathing in the coldest lies
I think that's only what you have in mind
Holding on to the best of you
I hit the pavement
Going down, I won't bow, don't!

Screaming at the walls of fire
They're closing into me
I'm hungry for the burning of
The silver moonlight
It's where I wanna be
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free (I'm still running free)
In the silver moonlight
I can breathe

I've been patient
But it's colors that I need
Too many shades of gray
I cannot breath (I can't breathe)
The dreams I haven't tainted
Need you to believe
The only way to make them real
Oh

(I can breathe)

Screaming at the walls of fire
They're closing into me
I'm hungry for the burning of
The silver moonlight
It's where I wanna be
Screaming at the walls of fire
But I'm still running free (I'm still running free)
In the silver moonlight
I can breathe

(I can breathe)

Turn around, open your eyes
Can't move on, the fear is tying me down
Open your eyes
It's alright...
7. Covered by Roses (4:48)
I feel my heart explode to particles.
Love is always here and I told you so.
Restless in dreams, love carved in stone
This rhapsody of life, in a way, I guess we all know it.

Hand in hand we stand while we watch it flow
Heaven can you help us, no we can't go.

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die.
The choirs have awoken
Left our words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can

Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time,
Need to live every moment

We build our castles high, turned our dreams to gold.
We took the blows of pride, went through it all.
The dawn is closing in, new tales are told.
This rhapsody of life, in a way, I guess we all know.

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die.
The choirs have awoken
Left our words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can

Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time,
Need to live every moment

For all we are these fallen stars in the night.
A flaming light reaching down from the sky.
We rise above rhapsody of our lives
So we all let go. We gotta let go.

[Spoken:]
She dwells with beauty, beauty that must die.
And joy, whose hand is ever at his lips.
His soul shall taste the sadness of her might
And be among her cloudy trophies hung.

Covered by roses
When this dance is over
We all know our beauty will die.
The choirs have awoken
Left our words unspoken
Remember you as long as I can

Hold you in my arms all night
And spill the wine until the end
We all have our place in time,
Need to live every moment
8. Dog Days (4:47)
Waking in the dead of night
Hold onto this life
Running to what's wrong or right
Seems to be a thin line
Fighting for a wasted love
Fighting to survive
Oh won't you please forget
Won't you please forget

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
They'll never go away
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
They'll never go away

1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

Waking in the dead of night
Hold onto this life
Running to what's wrong or right
Seems to be a thin line
Fighting for a wasted love
Fighting to survive
Oh won't you please forget
Won't you please forget

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
They'll never go away
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
They'll never go away

1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

Embracing the heart
To find the loss
Running down a path that
I think i need to know
When you've think you've won
You're still losing after all
These are the dog days
These are the dog days

These are the dog days
These are the dog days
They'll never go away
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
They'll never go away

1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
1, 2, 3, 4
What are you waiting for?
These are the dog days
These are the dog days
9. Tell Me Why (6:12)
I've been losing myself in anger
So much broken by the rage
Nothing could take my mind off
How to make them pay
Killing myself for nothing
Then the pain will go away
Losing myself to madness
And the game’s been played

If I could turn the hands of time
I would but here I am

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why I am still trying to hold on
I’ve got to turn it down to let it go
I’m too tired to keep on trying
But I’m spellbound ‘til the end
Knowing that there’s no closure
For my wars inside
I’ve buried the good and evil
Only memories left behind
Iron the wounds to stand in
I will live to tell

If I could turn the hands of time
I would but here I am
(Here I am!)

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why I am still trying to hold on
I’ve got to turn it down to let it go

Tell me why I’m wasting away,
Tell me how to break my own chains,
‘Cause I’m losing after all,
Tell me how to escaped this bricked fate,
Tell me how to face one more day,
‘Cause I’m wasting away

[Guitar solo]

It’s all gone silent
Searching for violent,
Nothing to fight for alone

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
(When it’s all gone, when it’s all gone)
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
(Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone)
Tell me why I am still trying to hold on
I’ve got to turn it down to let it go
10. Whole World Is Watching (4:03)
You live your life. You go day by day like nothing can go wrong.
Those colors are made, they're changing the game.
You learn to play it hard.

And I know you wish for more, and I know you try.
And I hope you realize, you know the time is right.

The whole world is watching when you rise.
The whole world is beating for you right now.
Your whole life is flashing before your eyes.
It's all in this moment that changes all.

What are you waiting for?
What are you fighting for?
'Cause time's always slipping away.

The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching.
You're in your right.

You build your walls then break them away
'cause that is what it takes.
You saved yourself. You found who you are.
That never goes away.

And I know you wish for more, and I know you try.
And I hope you realize, you know the time is right.

The whole world is watching when you rise.
The whole world is beating for you right now.
Your whole life is flashing before your eyes.
It's all in this moment that changes all.

What are you waiting for?
What are you fighting for?
'Cause time's always slipping away.

The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching.
You're in your right.

Your sacrifice comes to your mind,
but nothing is wasted. You made it now.
You rise again, breaking out. Instead that you take care.
You've paid the price.

The whole world is watching.

The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching.
You're in your right.

What are you waiting for?
What are you fighting for?
'Cause time's always slipping away.

The whole world is watching.
Yeah, the whole world is watching.
You're in your right.
