The Earth Embraces Us All Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles (2016-11-22)
1. A Thousand Places (6:29)
It’s early, I’m awake
In the darkness I stare
Well, I can’t remember
The name of this new place
It’s funny when it happens
And you do not have a clue
It makes you realize
You are alive

One million lights
Are shining bright
So many faces
I do not know
A thousand places
I want to see
This is a secret
To break free

Walking down the streets
I can breathe the thick air
Then suddenly,
The desert is here
And when I’m getting used
To the city I’m in
I will not stay,
The world awaits

Here it comes the day
That I’m leaving again
I am always amazed
By new colours and scenes
Every land’s so different
From the previous that I’ve seen
Different words
And different ideas
2. At the Edge of Space (4:28)
Elements, they react and change their state
Everything keeps on evolving
Even if no one observes
Galaxies, they are moving their own way
They’re rotating and colliding
With a sound no one can hear

There are mountains, valleys, rocks and water
Black holes, comets and so much more

Crossing all the oceans and heading for the stars
There’s no sorrow, there is no care, they’re left all behind
Nothing is forever, I’m just a little speck
In this chemical infinity, there is no rest

And I know I have to change my point of view
Reconsidering my choices and resuming my own truth
From above many problems seem futile
Most of questions are unworthy and they’re just a waste of time

I simply don’t care,
I’m so far away from the earth
I can stare at sun without my eyes hurting

Matter, dark matter & dark energy
The secrets not unraveled yet, there’s so much more to discover
And I want to know, ‘cause the earth embraces us all

Exploring other planets and looking through the sky
There is no annoying problem that is worth my time
Place here is forever, believe it or not
I am reaching the lucidity, I need to go on
3. Unspoken Words (4:00)
There’s a silent demon whispering inside my mind
And I keep on wondering why I have to feel this bad
Good and evil forces battling inside my chest
And opposing thoughts are loudly breaking off my rest

I am imploding, my mind’s corroding
This wall of silence is suddenly falling
The wind is blowing, the lightning is coming
I cannot refrain no more

Now take heed for me
You will realize this is
The calm before the storm
Of the feelings untold
Listen to me, in the end
And don’t tell me I’m to blame
There’s something you should know
Can you hear my unspoken words?

I don’t know if what I’m going to say is right or wrong
I just cannot hush my mouth, I can’t take no more
I’m sure I will feel much better when this silence breaks
I’ll get rid of this heavy burden pushing on my neck

I am imploding, my mind’s corroding
This wall of silence is suddenly falling
The wind is blowing, the lightning is coming
I’m losing my self-control
4. Empty Lines (4:26)
I’ve to face it everyday
Always a new choice to make
I’m so sick to be distressed
By the thoughts inside my head
There must be a light at the end
Of the tunnel of my brain
I’ve to focus on my aim:
To bring calm inside myself

Something’s missing
Something’s wrong
Dark clouds are getting close
I’ve been waiting for too long

I have looked for another melody
For new notes to complete my symphony
For the words to fulfill and write those empty lines
And I know, I can’t waste my energy
‘cause I used to be my own enemy…
The war that I could never win

I’ve to treasure what I’ve found
And I have to hold my ground
Step by step, a little more
Every second, I’m so close
It is hard, but it’s worthwhile
So it’s time to stand and fight
Never let others decide
For your life, and never hide

I have looked for another melody
For new notes to complete my symphony
For the words to fulfill and write those empty lines
And I know, I can’t waste my energy
‘cause I used to be my own enemy…
The war that I could never win
Battling to conquer my inner peace
I’ve unleashed what it’s worth to be set free
So here I am
5. Maschere (3:25)
Qui tutto e confuse
Qual e la verita?
Mi sembra di impazzire
In questo vortice
Sprofondo in un delirio
Di dubbi e false idee
Mi perdo e mi ritrovo dopo un attimo

E sono qui e solo adesso capisco
Che tutto el mio errare
Non e poi stato invano
E lo so, emergero dall’abisso
Trovero nuova luce
In questa mia notte

E’ tardi, ma ho capito
Che l’apparenza inganna
E fa sembrare tutto
Troppo semplice
Cambiando prospettiva
Scavando un po’ di piu
Le maschere si crepano e poi cadono

Non restero a guardare in disparte
E arrivato il momento di agire
E quello che voglio
Perche indietro il tempo non torna
E io non posso aspettare, no
6. Haze (4:20)
Someone’s in the mirror looking back with a silly face
Damn, I cannot stand that fake smile and that stare
When I walk away that reflection just disappears
And it does the same if I break out in tears

Oh what a day, there’s a stranger in my room
Acting just like me, I’ve got to say that we look alike

Go away and leave me alone
I don’t like your bad company

Now I try to close my eyes
Bu this bitter taste remains
And there’s nothing I can do to ease the pain
Black or white, sun or rain
I’m just having a bad day
Hopefully tomorrow all the haze will fade away

Uncontrolled reactions make me move like I’ve gone insane
Trembling and shaking, I cannot move my legs, something’s going wrong so that
I cannot see no more so it feels like the floor opens under my feet
I cannot relax, I can’t carry so much distress
I am suffocating, have to take one more breath
There are many thoughts rolling over into my head
And the bad result is that I feel so sad
Oh what a day, all my plans turned upsidedown
I can feel the poison burning in my every cell

I don’t wanna go insane
I’ve to calm down, take a break
It’s time to change my ways,
To put troubles aside

I just cannot see what the hell is happening to me
I don’t recognize the person that I seem to be
Simply I don’t like the way I’m acting, it’s not like me
All this mess will cease to exist, I’ll let happiness in

Someone’s in the mirror looking back with a silly face
Damn, I cannot stand that fake smile and that stare
When I walk away that reflection just disappears
And it does the same if I break out in tears
I have lost my energy, I try but I cannot wake
Wasted so much time in running after my brain
I have realized there’s no place that I’d rather be
Because for today I cannot stand myself
7. Fragments of Life (3:44)
Awakened by this tempest
I can see your eyes in the shade
And it feels so safe here
Hold me tight so that I can feel
Your heartbeat

Why can’t we just lay down
Whispering love songs with no sound?
But there’s always something
Keeping you and me far apart

And I would erase
Any distance between us

And I love you so that I hate you every time that you leave
It is hard to handle this affliction so bittersweet
Because when you hug me there’s no space and there is no time
Happiness is for real only in those fragments of life

Hold me close to your heart
Letting all the seasons pass by
But in time I will get used
I’m learning to love you from afar

But I still can’t stand
Any distance between us

And I love you so that I hate you every time that you leave
It is hard to handle this affliction so bittersweet
When we separate I feel broken
Just another taste and then go
You are everything that I dream for
You remind me I’m alive
8. Revolution (4:16)
We’re gonna tell very loud
Anything that’s gonna pass through our minds
No constraints, no regrets
We’re unleashing any primitive force

And it is the time to stand up and write a story
Of freedom and pride
Here it all begins
And nothing can stand in our way
Or pull us under

We won’t be the same and everything is gonna change
This is revolution! Revolution!
For sure we are prepared to see the world upside down
In this revolution… revolution!

We’re gonna shout, gonna cry
Everyone is gonna hear our own wors
No taboos, no excuse
We’re unleashing any primitive thought
And it is the time to stand up and write a story
Of freedom and pride

We sit down here quiet, ready to fight
To free the stream of our own creative minds
We will satisfy our need to make noise
And to play our notes
9. Advice from a Caterpillar (8:11)
She thought it was an afternoon
Just alike the other notes
Weary in the grass she laid
Picking daisies under the sun

She sat down on the grass
The she peeped into a book
And the weather was so hot
She was getting bored

A rabbit with pink eyes
Started running close by her
Shortly after she heard it saying
“Oh, dear! I shall be too late!”

She realized
That it could actually talk
But the oddest thing it was
It was staring at its clock

“And now the tale is done
And home we steer, a merry crew,
Beneath the setting sun.”
Pilgrims plucked in a far-off land

Shrinking and then growing tall
Trying to find her way back home
Nothing there seemed to be clear
So she drowned in a pool of tears

“Follow me! Wake up! Why?
We are all mad here!”

A duchess, a hatter
A grinning Chesire cat
The mushroom that I ate
Will make me shrink or grow?

The queen keeps on saying
“Off, off with her head”
The frog and the fish-footman
Don’t want me to come in

I cannot find my way home
I am exploring this strange, odd world
The blue caterpillar asked who am I
But I don’t know, don’t know no more

“Begin at the beginning…
And go on until you go to the end”

“Wake up, oh Alice dear!
What a long sleep you had”
“I’ve had a curious dream”
I’m gonna tell you right now
A duchess, a rat and a
A grinning Chesire cat…
10. Change the Rhyme (4:21)
I’ve always tried to be aware
But, you know, it’s not always easy
I often stop and meditate
I hesitate

And I forget where I have been
And I breathe out, then I breathe in
But underneath my feet I feel
The cold ground

Time and again I face my past
Voices and colors dwelling my heart
And step by step I’ve got to know
That “better” for me is never enough
Sometimes I wish I could rewind
All my life and change the rhyme

I’ve always thought “I’ll be prepared”
But, you know, it’s never easy
I often stop and wait alone
All alone, all alone

So many memories have dies
Buried deep inside my mind
I’d never let them re-emerge

Every new day just feeds my soul
I know the best has yet to come
This is the reason to go on

Time and again I let it go
But above all the present is gold
And the end I’ve got to know
That “perfect” for me is never enough
Sometimes I wish that I could see
Myself, the way I move and speak
With the eyes of someone else…
11. The Restless Ride (12:42)
Signals are clear we have to go
Leaving the ground of and emptied earth
It’s too hard to admit we’re wrong
We have to leave it now

The sky is the limit of our greedy race
A human swarm, a desperate shot
The last chance to live on

Now reach out for the starry dome
You will know the meaning of those lights above
After all, we are lightspeed trails
Chasing a distant sun
Heading to what lies deep in the unknown

No, we cleave an endless sea of night
Every single second, every scar upon our flesh
Through the void and among the stars
We try to sow our seeds to gain a second chance

Looking back to our lone and blue dot
Heading for a new place to call home
Silent shades around cheering our restless ride

Why have we never thought to save our lives?
We’ve lived too much beyond our means

Our sons will blame us for what we’ve done
To the blue jewel we’ve left behind
Without a shepherd to guide our way
To achieve the world that they deserve

Saviours, we’ve waited a thousands years
Under a veil of dust and broken hopes
Groping into our deepest dark
Dazed amid mires and stars

The curtain has fallen on our previous crimes
A childish game without a prize
We have to leave and say goodbye

Pollution, delusion and a deadly famine
Deathbringers will share war
Dry rivers and boiling oceans
It’s only our fault, redemption lies ahead
Into the night…

Black holes, cosmic graves wait
To split our souls in twain
Breaking veils of fire, over come fears
We’re forever gone!

Now look at the sky once more
You will know the meaning of those lights above
Out of sight, the fading stairways chasing a distant sun
Heading to what lies in the dark
