T.A.L.E.S. Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Schizophrenia
1. Madness / Sorrow on the Horizon (7:35)
Right down the street, a life full of lies
A man on the run, life far to hide
Victims decide

Nervous old man, why do you shake
You can't keep your cool, you're starting to break
A look on your face, human disgrace
Still see your face

Sorrow on the horizon
The sun will not shine again
Vengeance, key to the overcast
The innocent and the pain

Life seemed so close, a million foes
How they have led to despise
Look on their face, full of contempt
For another attempt

Sorrow on the horizon
The sun will not shine again
Vengeance, key to the overcast
The innocent and the pain

Mean old man, I believe what they say about you
Millions of people point their finger at you
Mean old man, I believe what they say is true about you

Fortune told
victims sold
2. Final Command (3:36)
Shrapnel blind, napalm burned
Wars wrath so unkind, body bags,
fighting machines
No mercy for the innocent

Too late to say a prayer.
Too late to take a stand
No salvation from the savior,
This is the final command

Fight for whom, kill for what?
Trial the same, sinner or saint
Needles waist, genocide.
Evil grows, good grows faint

Too late to say a prayer.
Too late to take a stand
No salvation from the savior,
This is the final command

Soldiers march, enemies fall.
Doomsday clock takes us all
Crazed minds, seal our fate.
Oppression much too late

Too late to say a prayer.
Too late to take a stand
No salvation from the savior,
This is the final command
3. Darkest Dream (4:46)
Darkest thoughts come alive in a world you can't control
Your furthest scare, soon will take their toll

Evil face, storms that brew within, down trodden holes
when nightmares will begin

Darkest dream, takes me, takes me
When it wants
Darkest dream, fakes me, takes me, holds me

I'll run and run, can't escape
These things long gone, will haunt me

Darkest dream, my god I can't let go
Darkest dream, Darkest dream
Wake me, break me, from my dream

Darkest thoughts come alive, in a world you can't control
Your furtest scare soon will take their toll
4. Running Out of Time (4:52)
A good friend left the game of life
Turn back the clock, what would you say?

Life hangs by a thread
Make sure you leave your mark
now is the only time you own
A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link
If you've thrown away a day
Don't cry when you run out of time

Now is the time you hold
Live for love, get your fill
Place no faith in tomorrow
your clock may then be still

How you play is how you pay
One step away from the edge of a fall
A life cut short, slipped away
I'd say he ran out of time

Running out of time
Running out of time

You've got to live for the love of life
Stick to the side that is winning
Say just what is on your mind, or you'll be

Running out of time
Running out of time

The hands of time turn once
No one has the power
To tell when their time will end
Could be late of early hour
Don't cast your dreams to the wind
Today's only yesterday's tomorrow
5. Scarred for Life (6:08)
The morning sun is cast aside
A figure gripping pain
The evil taunts her will once more
Rejection sickly vain

A crumbling from a life that was
so confident and sure
Cold steel blade of silver
A boast which led to more

Once scarred, you're scarred for life
The black of winter, the death so white
Once scarred, you're scarred for life
The black of winter, the death so white

Alure so blind that grabbed your soul
Now tortures you within
A guilty mind a conscience breached
A life that's damned to sin

Can't see your own decay
Your eyes can't hide your lies
Evil grip is on your heart
The winter comes, life dies

There's no sunshine today
There's no laughter after pain
If the sun shines on me
Their must be laughter after pain
You paid the price, you won the fight
6. Changing Sands (6:18)
I see the sun
Do you think the sun will shine forever?
Watch three winds blow
Bringing hatred, fear, displeasure
I've seen your eyes

Undrying, I swear forever
Is love carved in stone? or scratched
upon the changing sands

I am the anvil, which patience broke
Hammer and nail, barred wire

Love cuts both ways
Divides your heart, then brings you together
Beware three winds blow
Bringing hatred, fear, displeasure

Break off the chains
The lion must kneel before the lamb
For beneath the changing sands
Lies your anchor, your stone

I see the sun
Do you think the sun will shine forever?
Watch three winds blow
Bringing hatred, fear, displeasure
I've seen your eyes

You are the lamb, you saved my soul
I won't let you go

Oil and water
Feeds my fire
Takes me higher
7. Time Traveller (4:50)
Ancient city burning war
I can't stand it, tell me more
Six hundred years to build a wall
Bodies piled up to ten feet tall

Travelling speed of light
Time traveller
Twisting, falling, darkness calling
Fly

Die in your fields, hide in your homes
As they march on in
Feel the rage of histories page
As you fly by yourself

Travelling speed of light
Search and see
Time traveller
What will be will be
Twisting, falling, darkness calling
Fly

Ahead in time to seventh sign
I've seen the end to be
I'll tell you all when you fall
Nearer your god you'll be

Travelling speed of light
Time traveller
Search and see
What will soon be

Twisting, falling, darkness calling
Why?
8. Son of Sam (5:27)
The sun fades from the sky
Dusk closes in
A distract figure waits
For signals from within
Demented thoughts possess
The voices in his head
They scream and call to him, it's time
To strike, the time is now

You must do what they say
For fear they'll take you far away
To the darkest depths of hell
They'll take you

Night sets his mind on fire
Voices scream
To strike the demon thirst
A victim he will seem
His hand is life and death
His mindless mission sealed
The deadly bullets fly
Life cut short, it's time to die

You must do what they say
For fear they'll take you far away
To the darkest depths of hell
They'll take you

Unbalanced thoughts prevail
His thoughts untrue
Cerebral overload haunts him from
His youth
Sweet innocent young smile
Your future yet untrue
Law ends his reign of death
And wipes the smile from the son of Sam
9. Mercenary (4:13)
Spartan warrior to the battle rides
Last of a dynasty not afraid to die
Strong rip the spoils of his enemies
Blood and sweat, blood and sweat soaked tails

High and mighty
He stands before kings
Pledges allegiance
Power he brings

Fame, victory, glory he seeks
Sole survivor of his quest
Leaves the woman at his side
Lives the way he lives the best

Life on the line for the crown
Mercenary, dark ages with a heart of stone
Slash of steel brings instant death
Fighting for honour til his last breath
10. Forever Alive (7:06)
Daylight slips away, night shadows fall
Restless movement, signs of the evil one
Tale long told of man taken under
To join the undead forever

He broke from his layer as
the full moon stares
To give way to his hunger
Had but a taste, I'm fully awake
I too must hide inside forever

Now I am one with the night
To live by the rule wrong is right
To sleep in the day, hide from the light
To join the undead forever

He broke from his layer as
the full moon stares
To give way to his hunger
Had but a taste, I'm fully awake
I too must hide inside forever

A face in the shadows
Alone in the dark
Silently stalking
Into the night
Into the night

Life taken life
Forever young
Forever alive

This burning inside him
Torment from all time
Watching you now
Slave to the night
Chained to the night

Life taken life
Forever young
Forever alive

Vials of blood from witched veins
Skulls of criminals gone insane

It is with disgust for revenge
That now I feel and fear the hunger
And take to the night
Until the night is no longer

He broke from his layer as
the full moon stares
To give way to his hunger
Had but a taste, I'm fully awake
I too must hide inside forever
