The Unforgiving Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Zyklus
1. Why Not Me (0:34)
Some may call it a curse - a life like mine
But others - a blessing
It's certainly a lonely life
But a fulfilling one, at best

It's my cross to bear
ButI bear it gladly
Someone has to take a stand against evil
Why should it not be me?
2. Shot In The Dark (5:02)
I’ve been left out alone like a damn criminal
I’ve been praying for help cause I can’t take it all
I’m not done,
It’s not over.
Now I’m fighting this war since the day of the fall
And I’m desperately holding on to it all
But I’m lost
I’m so damn lost

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I’m hoping that somehow

‘Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
A shot in the dark

In the blink of an eye
I can see through your eyes
As I’m lying awake I’m still hearing the cries
And it hurts
Hurts me so bad
And I’m wondering why I still fight in this life
‘Cause I’ve lost all my faith in this damn bitter strife
And it’s sad
It’s so damn sad

Oh I wish it was over,
And I wish you were here
Still I’m hoping that somehow

‘Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark

I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away
I feel you fading away

‘Cause your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
Oh, your soul is on fire
A shot in the dark,
What did they aim for when they missed your heart?

I breathe underwater
It’s all in my hands
What can I do?
Don’t let it fall apart
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark
A shot in the dark

A shot in the dark
3. In The Middle Of The Night (5:11)
I’ve been walking this road of desire,
I’ve been begging for blood on the wall.
I don’t care if I’m playing with fire,
I’m aware that I’m frozen inside.
I have known all along.

So much more going on, no denying,
But I know I’m not standing alone

You’ve been playing my mind through my wishes.
You can feel that we’re haunting the truth.
Don’t know – I can’t hold on – always losing control.

In the middle of the night,
I don’t understand what’s going on
It’s a world gone astray.
In the middle of the night,
I can’t let it out.
Someone keeps searching
And shatters your life
It will never be afraid
In the middle of the night

No more tears,
No, ‘cause nothing else matters
I’ve been closing my eyes for too long.

Only vengeance will make me feel better.
There’s no rest till I know that it’s done.

You’ve been playing my mind through my wishes
You can feel that we’re haunting the truth
Don’t know – I can’t hold on – always losing control

In the middle of the night,
I don’t understand what’s going on
It’s a world gone astray.
In the middle of the night,
I can’t let it out.
Someone keeps searching
And shatters your life
It will never be afraid
In the middle of the night

In the middle of the night
In the middle of the night

In the middle of the night,
I don’t understand what’s going on
It’s a world gone astray.
In the middle of the night,
I can’t let it out.
Someone keeps searching
And shatters your life
It will never be afraid
In the middle of the night
4. Faster (4:23)
I can't sleep because its burning deep inside
Like gasoline on a fire running wild
No more fear cause I'm getting closer now
So unreal but I like it anyhow

I go faster faster faster faster faster faster faster

I can't live in a fairytale of lies
And I can't hide from the feeling cause its right
And I go faster faster faster and faster for love
I can't live in a fairytale of lies

I can feel that you mesmerize my heart
I Feel so free I'm alive I'm breaking out
Won't give in, because I'm proud of all my scars
And I can see I've been wasting to much time

I go faster faster faster faster faster faster faster

I can't live in a fairytale of lies
And I can't hide from the feeling cause its right
And I go faster faster faster and faster for love
I can't live in a fairytale of lies

I can't live in a fairytale of lies
And I can't hide from the feeling cause its right
And I go faster faster faster and faster for love
I can't live in a fairytale of lies
5. Fire And Ice (3:57)
Every word you’re saying is a lie
Run away my dear
But every sign will say your heart is dead

Bury all the memories
Cover them with dirt
Where’s the love we once had
Our destiny’s unsure
Why can’t you see what we had
Let the fire burn the ice
Where’s the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I’m breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Closer to insanity
Buries me alive
Where’s the life we once had
It cannot be denied
Why can’t you see what we had?
Let the fire burn the ice
Where’s the love we once had
Is it all a lie?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I’m breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

You run away
You hide away
To the other side of the universe

Where you’re safe from all that hunts you down

But the world has gone
Where you belong
And it feels to late so you’re moving on
Can you find your way back home?

And I still wonder
Why heaven has died
The skies are all falling
I’m breathing but why?
In silence I hold on
To you and I

Every word you’re saying is a lie.
6. Iron (5:41)
Left in the darkness
Here on your own
Woke up a memory
Feeling the pain
You cannot deny it
There’s nothing to say
It’s all that you need to find the way

Oh Damn, the war is coming!
Oh Damn, you feel you want it!
Oh Damn, just bring it on today!

You can’t live without the fire
It’s the heat that makes you strong
‘Cause you’re born to live and fight it all the way
You can hide what lies inside you
It’s the only thing you know
You’re embracing that, never walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away

Raised in this madness, you’re on your own
It made you fearless, nothing to lose
Dreams are a drug here, they get in your way
That’s what you need to fight day by day

Oh Damn, the war is coming!
Oh Damn, you feel you want it!
Oh Damn, just bring it on today!

You can’t live without the fire
It’s the heat that makes you strong
‘Cause you’re born to live and fight it all the way
You can hide what lies inside you
It’s the only thing you know
You’re embracing that, never walk away
Don’t walk away



[You need not to fear us
unless you're a dark heart
a vile one, who preys on the innocent
I promise, you can't hide forever in the empty darkness
for we'll hunt you down
like the animals you are
and pull you in the very bowels of hell]

Oh Damn, the war is coming!
Oh Damn, you feel you want it!
Oh Damn, just bring it on today!

You can’t live without the fire
It’s the heat that makes you strong
‘Cause you’re born to live and fight it all the way
You can hide what lies inside you
It’s the only thing you know
You’re embracing that, never walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
7. Where Is The Edge? (3:59)
In the shadows it awakes the desire
But you know that you can't realize
And the pressure will just keep rising
Now the heat is on

Its too late, there is no way around it
You will see for yourself many times
In the end you will give up the fight
Its unescapable

'Cause you're losing your mind and you sleep
In the heart of the lies

Where is the edge
Of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light
Of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

It's the rule that you live by and die for
Its the one thing you can't deny
Even though you don't know what the price is
It is justified

So much more that you've got left to fight for
But it still doesn't change who you are
There is no fear you'll ever give in to
You're untouchable

'Cause you're losing your mind and you sleep
In the heart of the night

Where is the edge
Of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light
Of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive

You can't stop yourself
Don't want to feel
Don't want to see what you've become

You can't walk away
From who you are
Never give in

Where is the edge
Of your darkest emotions?
Why does it all survive?
Where is the light
Of your deepest devotions?
I pray that it's still alive
8. Sinéad (4:23)
I’ve got to try it’s not over yet
The signals of love have you left
My heart is bleeding just for you
Bleeds for only you
And it hurts to know the truth
Are you looking for savior, chasing a dream
Love turned to hate
Now I’m crossing the border
Sealing my (our?) fate but I’m not afraid

Ohohoh Sinéad
For the first time life is gonna turn around
I’m telling you, you will like it I know (I know, I know, I know, I Know, I Know)
ohohoh Sinéad
It’s the first time
Only you can set it free
Ohohoh Sinéad
Come break away with me

This second chance I know won’t last
But it’s ok, got no regrets
And I, I feel the end near I’m a fool
Can’t get closer
But I’m doing what I should
I’ve been drowning in sorrow
Chasing tomorrow
Running away
Now you’re crossing the border
Sealing tomorrow
But you’re not afraid

Ohohoh Sinéad
For the first time life is gonna turn around
I’m telling you, you will like it I know (I know, I know, I know, I Know, I Know)
ohohoh Sinéad
It’s the first time
Only you can set it free
Ohohoh Sinéad
Come break away with me

I’ve been drowning in sorrow
Chasing tomorrow
Running away
Now you’re crossing the borders
Sealing tomorrow
But you’re not afraid

Ohohoh Sinéad
For the first time life is gonna turn around
I’m telling you, you will like it
Ohohoh Sinéad
For the first time life is gonna turn around
I’m telling you, you will like it I know (I know, I know, I know, I Know, I Know)
ohohoh Sinéad
It’s the first time
Only you can set it free
Ohohoh Sinéad
Come break away with me
9. Lost (5:14)
My hope is on fire, my dreams are for sale
I dance on a wire but don’t want to fail her

I walk against the stream, fight for what I believe in
I run towards the end, trying not to give up

She’s lost in the darkness, fading away
I’m still around here, screaming her name
She’s haunting my dreamworld, trying to survive
My heart is frozen, I’m losing my mind
Help me, I’m buried alive
Buried alive

I’m burning the bridges and there’s no return
I’m trying to reach her, I feel that she yearns

I walk against the stream, fight for what I believe in
I run towards the end trying not to give up

She’s lost in the darkness, fading away
I’m still around here, screaming her name
She’s haunting my dreamworld, trying to survive
My heart is frozen, I’m losing my mind
Help me, I’m buried alive
Buried alive

I’m trying to revive what’s already drowned
They think I’m a fool carrying her lies
Hope is awakened, gave way the mind
Cause I thought that love wound bind
I cannot revive what’s already drowned
She won’t come around

She’s lost in the darkness, fading away
I’m still around here, screaming her name
She’s haunting my dreamworld, trying to survive
My heart is frozen, I’m losing my mind
Help me, I’m buried alive
Buried alive
10. Murder (4:16)
I’ve been around these vicious lies too
Too long to be neglecting the truth
I’m getting closer and I’m fully armed
I’m about to hunt you down through
The big black hole right behind you
And I’m about to cut your wings away

‘Cause I’ve been finding out
Where you’ve broken in
And I will take you out
When I close you in

I’m killing them all
I’ve put my soul on the line
I purify sins that I’ve committed in life
I’ll follow them all
And I’ll be bringing them down
Wherever they go I’m right behind

There’s nowhere to go
Your head on the line
There is no rope, you’re running out of time
To where will you go
When I will murder your soul

I’m about to do it your way
I will make your world unsafe
I never thought you get this fast insane
You don’t believe what I besides see
You don’t believe in judgment day
But you won’t believe in x**x on horn

‘Cause I’ve been finding out
Where you’ve broken in
And I will take you out
When I close you in

I’m killing them all
I’ve put my soul on the line
I purify sins that I’ve committed in life
I’ll follow them all
And I’ll be bringing them down
Wherever they go I’m right behind

There’s nowhere to go
Your head on the line
There is no rope, you’re running out of time
To where will you go
When I will murder your soul

You can’t feel the pain
And scream in vain
You sink away to the bottom
You can’t break your chains
Break away from here

I’m killing them all
I’ve put my soul on the line
I purify sins that I’ve committed in life
I’ll follow them all
And I’ll be bringing them down
Wherever they go I’m right behind

There’s nowhere to go
Your head on the line
There is no rope, you’re running out of time
To where will you go
When I will murder your soul
11. A Demon's Fate (5:30)
You’ll burn this time, seeing the violence
Is feeding my mind, no one is saving you
how can you find a heaven in this hell?
Leave it behind, hear in your silence
his screams of goodbye, cannot believe
It’s an eye for an eye, let us go to waste

Angels have faith, I don’t wanna be a part of his sin
I don’t wanna get lost in his world, I’m a prey in this game

When the shadows remain, in the light of day
On the wings of darkness he’ll retaliate
He’ll be falling from grace, till the end of all his days
From the ashes of hate, it’s a cruel demon’s fate
On the wings of darkness, he’s returned to stay
There will be no escape, ‘coz he’s falling far from grace

What have you done?
Is this what you wanted?
What have you become?
Your soul’s not forsaken
You’re walking alone from heaven into hell
Now that you know, your way in this madness
Your powers have grown, your chains have been broken
You’re suffer so long, you will never change

Angels have faith, I don’t wanna be a part of his sin
I don’t wanna get lost in his world, I’m a prey in this game

When the shadows remain, in the light of day
On the wings of darkness he’ll retaliate
He’ll be falling from grace, till the end of all his days
From the ashes of hate, it’s a cruel demon’s fate
On the wings of darkness, he’s returned to stay
There will be no escape, ‘coz he’s falling far from grace
Angels have faith, I don’t wanna be a part of his sin
I don’t wanna get lost in his world, I’m a prey in this game

When the shadows remain, in the light of day
On the wings of darkness he’ll retaliate
He’ll be falling from grace, till the end of all his days
From the ashes of hate, it’s a cruel demon’s fate
On the wings of darkness, he’s returned to stay
There will be no escape, ‘coz he’s falling far from grace
12. Stairway To The Skies (5:32)
Seven seconds till the rise
Can’t believe I’m still alive
And heaven was waiting for me
I thought this would be the end
But I know you’ll understand
All that is keeping me here

I dream of the stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
And now that you call for me
Know that I’m only one step behind

My senses tell me I have changed
But one thing still remains
I’m torned in hate, still aching
I slowly start to realize
We won’t reunite
I still have to march on through

I dream of the stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
And now that you call for me
Know that I’m only one step behind

Is it a curse or a virtue?
Have it been game that I regret?
traditional ways (??)
My soul is at stake
Will I find the stairway to the skies in the end?

I dream of the stairway to the skies
My angel is coming down from heaven to take me
I reach out but then you fade away
And now that you call for me
Know that I’m only one step behind
Know that I’m only one step behind
