The Unreal Never Lived Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Quantum Mystic (10:58)
Forging the future from the timeless stone
Oh let me know how far I can go
Answering the questions that no one ever asks
Float through the sea of madness
And face the everlasting task

So lonely to wander
So sad to be alone
In the mist of the unknown
Trying to fool myself with dreams that never come
So hard to stand my ground
Never again will I fail
Will you tell me not to wait
Tell me to live for today

As the flowers wither
I will forget my pain
Since the stars have shone
The devil has shown me the way
2. Grasping Air (9:02)
Entwine with despair like a lover
Bleak obsession take its toll
Burnt souls in the wake
Embers at stake
The cycle internal unfolds

Ancient wounds fester and bleed
Empty food from which they feed
Sustain the wealth subliminate
The self
Create the suffering we need

Slow crawl
Timeless call
Watch it burn down burn down
The egos fall
Nothing lasts forever
Grasping air
Peace lives in the space where
No one is there

Rigid dogma breeds disease born from needing to believe
There is a reason for all this pain
Fear of life creates the stain


Darkness and light
Shadows call
Colors and sight
Blind us all
Each moment a brand new day
Each life is all
Don't believe your eyes
3. Kosmos (10:25)
Insight into the one sublime magnified
Unspoken sacred oath the universe in all life
Dawn of the rising sun burning the timeless
Living equilibrium of the Kosmos

Clear light-personified divine-clear light-no thing is denied expansion-pervading the void-Kosmos-vast eternal sky

Atoms vibrate
The chanting begins
Hymns to the funeral pyre
Give birth to tomorrow's dead
Subsonic sage drones reach to the stars
With ancient insights into the Kosmos


Oh mani padme hum
Oh mani padme hum
Oh mani padme hum
Each thought creation's dawn
Each breath one with the all
Hearts pulsate with the mantra
Vibrant in the Kosmos

Faith of fear
Empire of old
Fear in disguise
Seething false power
The empire withers and falls
The world revealed
To be in the mind
To be in the mind

Personified divine
The dreamer sleeps no more
No thing is denied
The whole drama is witnessed
Diverse in the void
The Kosmos is within
Within us within us
Within all
4. The Mental Tyrant (21:23)
Iron mask
Clad in armor
Vast fear
Disguised as wisdom
In the end
The fortress falls
Nothing survives
That is false

Constant desire for virtue, the higher
Achieve the right to judge our brethren with a smile
Distortion clinging salvation hangs on by a thread
To all we think we know
Illusions of what is gained

To be favored or disgraced
Is to live in fear
No matter how we try
We walk the path alone

Cherished beliefs
Dependant upon the past
The past and the future
Phantoms in the now

Overwhelmed with the struggle
Try to achieve redemption
Grapple with the values
Of those who seek control
Impressions of the righteous
Such a pitiful waste create the seeds of hate
The mental tyrant
