Kilesa Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Rousseau (2016-03-14)
1. Sense of an Ending (5:52)
So here I am on my knees again
A former search for truth, now turned into a senseless game
Each dream has gone, suffering remains
Clarity is not what I will gain

Fear is the weakness, the key to loneliness

I took the same road for far too long
It wasn’t meant to be, now the vision has gone
In the growing shadow, loosing my identity
I just don’t belong in this reality

What do we know, where do we go
Accepting we’re just loosing the game

And I tried, I tried to build
Now I linger in the ruins of my own guilt

What do we know, where do we go
Accepting we’re just loosing the game
What do we know, where do we go
Self deceiving we numb the pain

Fear is the weakness, the key to loneliness

Our troubled minds, our inner violence
We scream so loud to hear the silence

Hear our screams as we face tomorrow
Being aware that life is only borrowed
Hear our screams as we try to cure
Our last endeavour to gain something pure

There will be a flame we have to tame
New shores will burn and the tides will turn
One silver lining to break the darkness
Out of nothing we rebuilt the fortress

What do we know, where do we go
Accepting we’re just loosing the game
What do we know, where do we go
Self deceiving we numb the pain
2. Two Words (4:38)
Realizing it’s a fact
Being stabbed in the back
Leave me all alone
Friendships demise
It’s all built on lies
Feel hate to the bone

Now that all is said and done
Two words unspoken
We made our way through thick and thin
And never thought this could be broken

Shared all our trust
Now it turns to rust
There’s no apologies
Violated confidence
Does this make any sense
Feeling traumatized

Show me ignorance
Show me disregard
Have a closer look
Carved between lines, ignoring the signs
Show me unconcern
Show me disrespect
Have a closer look
An F and a U from me to you

Now that all is said and done
Two words unspoken
We made our way through thick and thin
And never thought this could be broken

Show me ignorance
Show me disregard
Have a closer look
Carved between lines, ignoring the signs
Show me unconcern
Show me disrespect
Have a closer look
An F and a U from me to you

Now that all is said and done
Two words unspoken
We made our way through thick and thin
And never thought this could be broken
3. Scars of War (4:19)
Recruited 18 years old
Going overseas to save the world
Only a one way ticket in sight
Get ready to fight

Cannon fire lightens the night
Trenches become the stage of the fight
Brothers falling around and around
On a blood soaked ground

In the safety of dawn
Last prayers are told
On the battlefield unbound
Combat yells resound
Courageous men fall one by one
Crippled bodies scatter the ground
As senses slowly fade
Ring in the end of this crusade

The battle is over
Blood covers the plain
A foxhole is my shelter
The smell of death remains

Shell splinters hit me tight
Scars burn deep from inside
As I look down from the sky
Mama please don’t morn, please don’t cry

The battle is over
Blood covers the plain
A foxhole is my shelter
The smell of death remains

Glory in death
All I earned are medals on my chest

The battle is over
Blood covers the plain
A foxhole is my shelter
The smell of death remains
4. Angel Eyes (5:58)
Just ain’t a guardian angel
Nor a messenger at all
Came down far from heaven
Proclaim the planet downfall
In times of nuclear blast and warfare
Humanity shall be punished
Fulfil the divine purpose
Acts of contrition come too late

Spread your wings for supremacy
Mankind is staring into angel eyes

Earth is drowned under firestorms
Oceans submerge the land
Air pollution is filling our lungs
Nothing against it, it‘s in our hands

This is the end, bring us pain
While flying on those wings of destruction
This is the end, bring us death
While flying on those wings of damnation

Spread your wings for supremacy
Mankind is staring into angel eyes
The world’s not meant to break free
Doomed forever and all times

This is the end, bring us pain
This is the end, bring us death
This is the end, bring us chaos
While flying on those wings of extinction

Spread your wings for supremacy
Mankind is staring into angel eyes
The world’s not meant to break free
Doomed forever and all times

Did not consider warning signs
Waking up to ash and dust
Now that all lies in ruins
Everything turns to rust
This is the total collapse
Devastation for our race
Did not foresee a new age rising
5. I Am Reality (3:26)
Hello my friend, now listen closely
Your doubts will end, never be solely
I'm the only truth, and you know it
You should not choose, not a bit

I can help you, knowing all your desires
I can take too all your charges
I’m the only thing, that you’ll ever need
I am the true king. Together we will succeed

Close your eyes and you will see
Life is just a stupid dream
Close your ears and you will hear
That only I am reality

No need to think, I'll do it for you
Here have a drink, there's only my view
My goals are clear, but do not concern you
People are all here, so you should go to

Close your eyes and you will see
Life is just a stupid dream
Close your ears and you will hear
That only I am reality

Buy me and I will own you
Submit to me and I will use you
Feel me and I will numb you
Desert me and I will destroy you
I am your God

Close your eyes and you will see
Life is just a stupid dream
Close your ears and you will hear
That only I am reality
6. The Mission (5:05)
Your trail’s been chosen
Bleak about the future
Knowing how your life is gonna be
The next damn years
Make yourself comfortable
It’s the only freedom left

Afraid to give in, afraid to let go
An eternal dilemma
Afraid to give in, afraid to let go
Death becomes the easiest way out

So sick and tired of your narrow mind
Remote controlled and empty like space
Like a robot for their greater good
Take every taste you can

Don’t stand still, move on
In a crowd you move among
The mission lasts eternally
Give up the try to flee

Serve your purpose acting like a muppet
Forget your proletarial
Hopes and fears, live to waste another day
But don’t let them see you sweat

Afraid to give in, afraid to let go
See the end of all days

Don’t stand still, move on
In a crowd you move among
The mission lasts eternally
Give up the try to flee

The mirror of conformity
Poisons ambitious souls
No chance to break the circle
But chosen to lose control

Don’t stand still, move on
In a crowd you move among
The mission lasts eternally
Give up the try to flee

The mirror of conformity
Poisons ambitious souls
No chance to break the circle
But chosen to lose control
7. Dying Alive (4:47)
Our lives are put on display
And as lights fade
We are losing our way

This venomous drug
Designed to tear us apart
And built to destroy the whole community

Although we have the tools
To reconcile the world
These rats are craving for recognition

Fuelled by avarice for information
Suffocated by voracity
Isolated by the ones we called beloved
Designed to tear us astray
We’re dying alive

We are lost in this timeline
Overfed with too much information

Our lives run secretly
Waiting for the next discovery
Our lives run in apathy
Waiting for the next command

Fuelled by avarice for information
Suffocated by voracity
Isolated by the ones we called beloved
Designed to tear us astray
We’re dying alive

Our lives run secretly
Waiting for the next discovery
Our lives run in apathy
Waiting for the next command

Fuelled by avarice for information
Suffocated by voracity
Isolated by the ones we called beloved
Designed to tear us astray
We’re dying alive
8. Teardrop Bullets (4:09)
Waking up in a lake of sweat
Memories eat me up
Haunted by the past
Where is fate?
Where is destiny?

Wounded by my teardrop bullets
They crash around me into ground
Harmed by my teardrop bullets
They smash around me without a sound

The hurt in my eyes consumes every thought
Struggling to escape the dreams I dread
More then a normal range of sadness
Leave me be cluttering the void inside

Wounded by my teardrop bullets
They crash around me into ground
Harmed by my teardrop bullets
They smash around me without a sound

Walking day by day through a cloud of fog
Do I cage myself if I fall from grace

Wounded by my teardrop bullets
They crash around me into ground
Harmed by my teardrop bullets
They smash around me without a sound
9. Supernova (5:17)
In the deepest depth from outer space
Millions of lightyears away
Galaxies whistle devine melodies
Cosmic clouds building solar systems
Out of a shell of gas and dust
An environment where no life dwells

A star is dying colourful and bright
The birth of a Supernova
Cosmic rays expand by the speed of light
The birth of a Supernova

Black holes swallowing the remnants
Disappearing in the dark
A massive sun turns into sparks
Creating building blocks of life
Reaching critical mass
Some light up the sky as they die

A star is dying colourful and bright
The birth of a Supernova
Cosmic rays expand by the speed of light
The birth of a Supernova
Nuclear fuel is exhausted
The core collapses
A billion suns bright

A star is dying colourful and bright
The birth of a Supernova
Cosmic rays expand by the speed of light
The birth of a Supernova
Nuclear fuel is exhausted
The core collapses
A billion suns bright
10. Not for Words (3:16)
instrumental
11. Kilesa I: Kleshas (11:09)
(music: Chris T.Ian - Max Sauber /lyrics: Philip Rio Ries - Max Sauber)

Greed, hate and ignorance are the evil seeds
In a world filled with empty receptacles
A fertile soil
The ones awake, the others sleeping and unaware
Letting grow the tree of Kilesa

Lying in front of your TV screen
You don’t realise the threat
Half-asleep as so many others
The seeds dig their roots
Deep into your doped mind
Demons of defilement
Let the tree rise

Greed is taking hold of you
Caught in this vicious circle
You’re only longing for more
Possession becoming your new dream
Substitute your freedom for shiny things
Letting grow the tree of Kilesa

The seeds becoming trees,
Becoming whole woods
Ingraining deeper and deeper
Taking possession of your kind
You’re too tired to resist
Too scared to fight

There’s no resistance
The tree can start to grow
It seizes your thoughts
Starts controlling them

Where does this poison come from?
Created by mankind
Corporate society's
Consumption machinery

Supported by all us sleepers who let this happen
Supported by all us sleepers who let this be

You start forgetting about your dreams
You start forgetting about your wishes

So who’s to blame? Who wanted this?
Who messed it up? Where did it all go wrong?
It’s all of us who accepted the seed
It’s all of us sleepers
Sleepers' Guilt
No goals, no hope, no resistance
Mechanical consumption your only aim and purpose
Blame it on yourself you mindless sleeper
Blinded by all those meaningless goods
The poison is creeping into your mind

They don't want you to feel
They don't want you to think
They are feeding this tree of self-destruction

Ignoring the signs
Hating yourself,
Greedy for more

You devour insignificant music
Brainwashing information
TV and internet your new religion
Acquired knowledge is dumped for smattering

Fed with disposable goods
Blinded by senseless entertainment
Led by corporate society
Longing for the good life you’ve been promised

You could wake up, take a risk
Take the lead, start using your voice
Break free from your eternal sleep
Break free and stand tall

You prefer gathering the rotten fruits
Fruits of fear and despair
You prefer gathering the rotten fruits
Your life is full filled with greed, hate and despair
12. Kilesa II: Akusala-Mula (7:07)
Working all day to afford your life
You can’t find any sleep at night
Blinded by the bright lights
Of a world that never sleeps

Now I look at what you have
It is all you wanted
The walls are coming down on you
A hole’s left in your heart

You flee from this life
Into a fake existence
Deeper and deeper
So far away from reality

You don’t have the power
The will to make a change
If you had the guts
Had what it takes

Just a stranger in a crowd
Going with the flow
Kilesa’s in charge now
You’re restrained by fears

You flee from this life
Into a fake existence
Deeper and deeper
So far away from reality

You don’t have the power
The will to make a change
If you had the guts
Had what it takes

Forgive yourself
For what you are
What you’re not
Forgive yourself

You despise what mankind has become
Hating your next for what they own

They are different
You cannot understand
Why they walk on your glorified land

Alone in the dark
Closing your eyes
You cannot sleep
You cannot wake up

You flee from this life
Into a fake existence
Deeper and deeper
So far away from reality

You don’t have the power
The will to make a change
If you had the guts
Had what it takes

Deceived by your life
What the hell is this shit
You sow the hatred
Make everybody go away
13. Kilesa III: Vipassana (12:42)
You no longer recognize the old face
Distorted grimace
Under the veil of hate, greed and ignorance
Accept your destiny or fight for what seems right

Right from the start
You’ve been that blind

I’ve felt lost and lonely

Closed your eyes
Didn’t want to see

The tree seized my soul

Luxury goes with slavery

I tried to be worthy

Subjected to the new world order

The roots enfettered me

I led you into my trap
It looked so good and new
Appeal turned into frustration
Ready to work for the soul collectors

Your life is meaningless
You’re all just my tools
Kneel before the machinery
You’re all so exchangeable

We could accept our impermanence
Lay down our suffering
Find out about our own non-self
See the true nature of reality

Led by my own frustrations
Imprisoned in my mind
Driven by ignorance
I have given in to the tree

Cannot refuse
Cannot resist
For you cannot wake up

Humankind
Lost wanderers
Trapped within the projections
You created of your life

We could accept our impermanence
Lay down our suffering
Find out about our own non-self
See the true nature of reality

We could accept our impermanence
Lay down our suffering
Find out about our own non-self
See the true nature of reality

I make you suffer
Bring death over you
Drain your energy
You’re feeding me

You senseless worm
Trapped in the cycle
Of rebirth and suffering
Tangled in your own ego
Your meaningless life is the price
In reality you’re none of this
You chose to be a defenceless sleeper

Let it go
The tree
Of Greed
Of Ignorance
Let it go
The tree
Of Hate
Of Kilesa

We could reflect on ourselves
And the world
we could accept one another
Become a community
Reflect on what we do really need
Face our craving for more
Renounce from it
Release from it
Detach from it
Wide awake and resistant the tree can’t grow
Conscious and resistant
No one can control your mind

Let it go
the tree of Kilesa

You can’t suppress me
I am your life
All you know
I am the tree

But then the tree we nourish
Would have to die
