Codex Atlanticus Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Eagles (2016-11-30)
1. Codex Atlanticus (1:56)
Instrumental
2. Follow Me (3:52)
That can't be a loss of time
I won't wait and see
The truth is just hiding
Bigotry hungry for power
But I will say no
Never lose my hope

Investigate, secrets revealed
My book of life's full of holes

Here I am, here I stand
Nothing left to say
My destiny will stay with me in sorrow
Here I am, here I stand
Redemption for my sins
Sign of the cross can't halt my way
Follow me

Rise up to a different sky
Leave the past behind
Aim for a future
Generation has been devoured
I won't fight alone
A silent leading flame

Working and praying not to obey
Creating a sentence for souls

Here I am, here I stand
Nothing left to say
My destiny will stay with me in sorrow
Here I am, here I stand
Redemption for my sins
Sign of the cross can't halt my way
Follow me

Investigate, secrets revealed
My book of life's full of holes

Here I am, here I stand
Nothing left to say
My destiny will stay with me in sorrow
Here I am, here I stand
Redemption for my sins
Sign of the cross can't halt my way
Follow me
3. Sprouts of Terror (5:14)
Plans of conquering
Bringing sprouts of terror
There is fear, I know but no one will die
I will be the one holding back destruction
As my dreams become reality

No one wins
Everyone will fall
Bloody tears
Desecrate a thriving world

I'm lost in my thoughts again
I've spiraled down
It seems there's no way out
Start losing my faith again
Inside my void
This darkness will rise

The weight of war in my hands cold
Death will follow me now everywhere I go
Defend the home where I belong
Justify my skills and bring the light

Inside of my vivid dreams
There´s no place for terror
I was doubting but now I can see the light
I will be the one bringing our cognition
And there's no reason to despair

No one wins
Everyone will fall
Bloody tears
Desecrate a thriving world

I'm lost in my thoughts again
I've spiraled down
It seems there's no way out
Start losing my faith again
Inside my void
This darkness will rise

The weight of war in my hands cold
Death will follow me now everywhere I go
Defend the home where I belong
And destruction will forever be forestalled
I won't be there if sorrow wins
Sacrifice, the only way to keep control
If they're in need, I will be there
Justify my skills and bring the light

I've opened my eyes again
Creating now
What I've been asked to shape
My thoughts are now clear again
Filling this void
Tormenting my soul

The weight of war in my hands cold
Death will follow me now everywhere I go
Defend the home where I belong
And destruction will forever be forestalled
I won't be there if sorrow wins
Sacrifice, the only way to keep control
If they're in need, I will be there
Justify my skills and bring the light
4. Iniquity (5:45)
Faces walking by
Voices just pretending
No one really tries
To seek the beauty inside

Their thoughts stuck in my mind
Their ignorance kept growing
The world is passing by
As darkness filling the light

Breathing in and calming down while nature's calling
And so I close my eyes to leave this all behind

Justice defines the truth and the lies
Where is the end to stop the fall
Seems hard to find our balance in life
With the sense of all
Iniquity rise, you cannot stay blind
Thoughtless while searching for the core
We can't deny our sacrifice
If we stop the fall

I wished I could escape
Fly like birds are flying
Find a better place
Find my peace and home

Breathing in and calming down while nature's calling
And so I close my eyes to leave this all behind

Justice defines the truth and the lies
Where is the end to stop the fall
Seems hard to find our balance in life
With the sense of all
Iniquity rise, you cannot stay blind
Thoughtless while searching for the core
We can't deny our sacrifice
If we stop the fall
5. Reason (4:13)
There was a time when I felt like to fall
What is left to do?
Seems I'm failing too?
But I will dedicate this to you
No one else could be
You will not betray

Struggles with all that rage
Will never be the same
Astonishing master plan
1,000 years of pain

Trust and see
You and me
In this life, don't we have a reason?
Trust and see
Mystery
Nothing will tear us apart

There's no way I will disappoint you
I will not refuse
A statement of hope
Your dedication will guide me through years
Years of decay
Human race in strain

An innocent will to know
How things are inside
But digging too deep we'll fall
Losing all our goals

Trust and see
You and me
In this life, don't we have a reason?
Trust and see
Mystery
Nothing will tear us apart

Trust in me
Don't you see?
Universe, enlighten hearts

Trust and see
You and me
In this life, don't we have a reason?
Trust and see
Mystery
Nothing will tear us apart
In this life we will have - enlighten hearts
6. My Final Chapter (4:11)
On the edge of life
It's time to step behind
Of all the things that you have done
The book with all my lines
the meanings you may find
Will change the world forever

Here I lay all alone
It's my final chapter
Time to leave
Time to die

My light starts fading out
Your magic I just found
You led me on my path of truth
As desperate grateful son
recalling dark years gone
while kneeling here so close to you

Here I lay all alone
It's my final chapter
Close to you
Close to reach the only one I ever loved
Your fields so green, your bluest sky
Beneath the deepest water
My everything
It's time to die

Lay all alone...

Lead my soul close to you
7. Caught in a Myth (5:33)
Lost in a world beyond your mind
of beauty and strength
You won't believe in my faith of men
Opened a door, a look deep inside
I felt in my hands
that humans are made out of more
than gods intent

Calling disbelievers
Come here to see
Veins, blood and their meanings
Accept their real verity

Caught in this myth of ourselves long ago
It's time to break free
Split body and soul
The heart is no altar
The ribs are no dome
Just muscles and flesh
Down skin, up on bones

Dissections complete, I drew every line
I stucked, it payed well
Details in the humankind
Just burst in our shells
Deciphered the secrets, I'll bring them to light
In order to prove
now I have to start the age of science
Age of truth

Calling disbelievers
Come here to see
Veins, blood and their meanings
Accept their real verity

Caught in this myth of ourselves long ago
It's time to break free
Split body and soul
The heart is no altar
The ribs are no dome
I take this for granted

Escaping this myth we were caught long ago
We'll glean so much more
of our body and soul
Minds become priests,
we'll memorize all
destiny leads us

Just go
Don't hide
tell all your insight

Stay strong
Don´t shy
join this new path
reface the world
8. Fate of Light (4:43)
Born in shadows of Renaissance
faith and new science collide
Revolutions and all we've seen
Beyond these great gates of unknown

Losing hopes of a new belief
forcing myself to go on

Now I see the light
My darkest views have disappeared
there's a sense that lays beyond this fate
I'll leave it all behind
Now I feel my life
I'll build a new tomorrow
Caged for all this time
finally free again
free again

A world made of hypocrisy
But my future starts are aligned
This inner feeling of ecstasy
Will lead me to grand discoveries

I've been raised to forget and pray
Nature is making my way

Now I see the light
My darkest views have disappeared
there's a sense that lays beyond this fate
I'll leave it all behind
Now I feel my life
I'll build a new tomorrow
Caged for all this time
finally free again

Do you see the light?
Is this the new tomorrow?
Finally I realize
The meaning of my fate
Now I feel my life
I'll build a new tomorrow
Caged for all this time
finally free (again)

Now I feel my life
I'll build a new tomorrow
Caged for all this endless time
Now I see the light
My darkest views have disappeared
there's a sense that lays beyond this fate
I'll leave it all behind
9. The Perfect Woman (5:04)
There is a painting I'm working on
It haunts my dreams when the day is gone
In glaring sunlight it is there in my heart and mind
Just simple orders again and again
Lady in splendour wealthy man
This one is special, far beyond any known kind

I got a sensation that my creation in a quite disturbing way
has come to life
Determines direction, cries for perfection,
there's no chance for me to stray
day by day

You're the sun in our skies
and the mother of all
(Your) silent grace never dies
while every kingdom must fall
Trust in me perfect woman,
I'll make you shine
for all time, ooh

Night becomes the day becomes tomorrow
He's trapped under her spell
Is it just painted wood or is it more?
He cannot ignore what he feels, creating her, giving her a face
mysterious in so many ways

I painted angels, saints in their light
the virgin Mary, gentle and bright
You will somehow outshine them all, this is my vow

You're the sun in our skies
and the mother of all
(Your) silent grace never dies
while every kingdom must fall
Trust in me perfect woman,
I'll make you shine
for all time, ooh
10. Spirit in the Flesh (5:00)
The candles are lighted, the blades lie there shining
soon they'll do their sacred work again
Covered in linen, fallen in eternal sleep,
a body prepared on the table

Now life is gone and the soul has fled to a place that's so far away

All the things I see given by the maker's hand
leave me humble and I stand lost in wonder
It's a perfect alchemy and the undeniable sign
of a spirit in the flesh, so divine (flesh so divine)

I met them all from infant to old man,
opened up their mortal frames so silent
Noble lady, crooked man, orphan child and centenerian
look all the same in the inside

Their life is gone and their souls have fled to a place that's so far away

All outstanding things I see given by the maker's hand
leave me humble and I stand lost in wonder
It's a perfect alchemy and the undeniable sign
of a spirit in the flesh, so divine
It's a perfect alchemy and the undeniable sign
of a spirit in the flesh, so divine (flesh so divine)

These studies, discoveries, will be my gift to mankind

All outstanding things I see given by the maker's hand
leave me humble and I stand lost in wonder
It's a perfect alchemy and the undeniable sign
of a spirit in the flesh, so divine
All outstanding things I see given by the maker's hand
leave me humble and I stand lost in wonder
It's a perfect alchemy and the undeniable sign
of a spirit in the flesh, so divine (flesh so divine)
11. The Order (5:23)
I just remember it like yesterday
Been to a place somewhere else
So hard I tried to hide there all my secrets
Distraught I called for help
No brainer question, easy remedy
They trapped me to their own world
Became a part, contract my sanity
this time felt so well

But as I saw their true reality
My only wish was to escape
They start to fool, they start to betray
if you will leave the Orders' way

Here I stand alone
with my back to the wall
Shall I stand for more
or cause the downfall
Hunted high and low
forgot who I was before
I will pay the price
the Order holds myself forevermore

And so it's time to face what's left of me
to lead me straight out of hell
Within these doubts within my broken inside
I will remain until eternity

Again I feel their true reality
My only wish is to escape
They start to fool, they start to betray
if you will leave the Orders' way

Here I stand alone
with my back to the wall
Shall I stand for more
or cause the downfall
Hunted high and low
forgot who I was before
I will pay the price
the Order holds myself forevermore
12. Forgive Me (5:32)
Crawling to the darkness
Waiting for some hope
Can't remember where all the light's gone
I tried to force myself
Not to think about the past
Together we won't build up a future

I see your face everywhere
But there is a reason
to leave you alone
Can't find a way, a second time to return
I torn between two sides of me

I'm sorry
my world does a call
I altered to someone else
I can not deny it
I'm sorry
I beg you, don't cry
it's my fate to reach the sky
before our world has turned to grey

Looking though the window
Looking though the glas
even if it kills me I have to
set my sails to leave
Wrote this lines in tears
But I have to tell you "forgive me"

I see your face everywhere
But there is a reason
to leave you alone
Can't find a way, a second time to return
I torn between two sides of me

I'm sorry
my world does a call
I altered to someone else
I can not deny it
I'm sorry
I beg you, don't cry
it's my fate to reach the sky
before our world has turned

Sacrificed my only love
Castigate my heart so much
Seeking things so high above
the present time
Is it worth to change my life
Am I wrong or do I right
What if in the end I will fail

I'm sorry
my world does a call
I altered to someone else
I can not deny it
I'm sorry
I beg you, don't cry
it's my fate to reach the sky
before our world has turned
13. Sail (4:13)
A night, one of a kind
No use in break of day, alone
The wind is blowing stronger,
whispers softly in my ear, your name
And the water in my eyes is just the rain
You must go, you must go!

There's a place out, on the ocean
far away from love's commotion
We could sail, we could sail
There's no wave to break the silence
Only driftwood left of violence
We could sail, we could sail
We could

Are we on the right way
or should I alter course, alone
Is the anchor down the deep
Really stronger than our force
Don't you see I'm loosing ground
Hold on tight and don't let go
Just for this moment, far away

Just follow me and take my hand
I'll follow you, I promise you

There's a place I'm sure, sail away with you
far away, sail away, far beyond
Set sail to far beyond, rising like the sun
No reason to stay
14. My Final Chapter (orchestral version) (4:13)
On the edge of life
It's time to step behind
Of all the things that you have done
The book with all my lines
the meanings you may find
Will change the world forever

Here I lay all alone
It's my final chapter
Time to leave
Time to die

My light starts fading out
Your magic I just found
You led me on my path of truth
As desperate grateful son
recalling dark years gone
while kneeling here so close to you

Here I lay all alone
It's my final chapter
Close to you
Close to reach the only one I ever loved
Your fields so green, your bluest sky
Beneath the deepest water
My everything
It's time to die

Lay all alone...

Lead my soul close to you
