Five Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Eagles (2016-11-19)
1. The Moment (4:14)
This is the moment…

Fire inspires passion
Passion translates as lust
Searching rings delivers the strangest form of trust

Earth enables gravity
Gravity merges bodies

This is the moment
All elements collide
Draw your strength where stars align

Wind creates motion
Motion transfers fruition
Water reflects clarity
Clarity – the ultimate design

This is the moment
All elements collide
Draw your strength where stars align
This is the moment
Don't let it pass you by
Break through the sacred energy

Inhaling deep to breathe ambition

This is the moment!..

This is the moment
All elements collide
Draw your strength where stars align
This is the moment
Don't let it pass you by
Break through the sacred energy

This is the moment!..
2. The Chain (3:12)
Can I have the attention of the class?
Open up your text
The city of Seven Hills
Another illustration of the autophagy
Put down your fiddle
Lady Liberty
And take a good long look

Revolution revolution
The free chant deafened by a barricade
Revolution revolution
Pull back the curtain
On this glass brigade
This is not just a battle
This is Bedlam on the boulevard!

Revolution revolution
Revolution revolution
Take hold of the chain
Rise up from the sand
We will not walk alone
This is not just a battle
This is Bedlam on the boulevard!

Tyrannical manacles of the process
Colossus thrust down upon the untouchable cast

Revolution revolution
The free chant deafened by a barricade
Revolution revolution
Pull back the curtain
On this glass brigade
Take hold of the chain
Rise up from the sand
We will not walk alone

Take hold of the chain
Rise up from the sand
We will not walk alone
Take hold of the chain
Rise up from the sand
We will not walk alone
3. The Anchor and the Sail (3:49)
I would fight for you, I would cross all seas and borders
Steal the fright from you, like a mother for her daughter
All the crimes between what is done and left to be seen
A little blind spot in the rear of the conscience remaining in me

I would fight for you, bring it down and build it again
Release the hold from you, the connection that can never mend
In this secluded world all ideas and theories are played
The reality closing in on me

I would take on the fight
As a sailor who cuts through the sea
Tastes the salt stuck deep into his skin
I would win the fight
Like a beast thrown into the ring
Tastes the blood right off his lips

The umbilical cord wrapped around your neck
So tight – you're scared to inhale
Scissors in one hand, pillow in the other
What will you choose? What will you choose?

Now you've made your bed and took a stance
But the guilt it burns as you lay your head to rest
I could have fought for you, I could have won for you
Take a second to think about that

In this secluded world all ideas and theories are played

I would take on the fight
As a sailor who cuts through the sea
Tastes the salt stuck deep into his skin
I would win the fight
Like a beast thrown into the ring
Tastes the blood right off his lips

I would take on the fight
As a sailor who cuts through the sea
Tastes the salt stuck deep into his skin
I would win the fight
Like a beast thrown into the ring
Tastes the blood right off his lips
I would win the fight
Take hold of what is rightfully mine
Tastes the fruits of my victory
If only I was fighting for – fighting for
What is truly, rightfully mine
4. The Game (2:50)
The rush, the thrill, the back and forth
We set ourselves on the torturous ground
Who is the sadist? Who is the masochist?
Trembling revelations shed light on the tragedy
Dancing in our masquerade

Shuffle the deck and place your bets
Seal the deal with your invincible hand
Let's play the, let's play the blaming game
Let's play the game, the blaming game
Right or wrong?

Tonight's the night we lay our cards
Dine in unpleasantries, sacrifice the bond
Emotions no longer clouding senses
Throw it in the gutter - feel the storm flush it down
A diamond in the rough is just an ordinary stone in disguise
Tell me what did you expect a perfect creation?

Shuffle the deck and place your bets
Seal the deal with your invincible hand
Let's play the, let's play the blaming game
Let's play the game, the blaming game
Right or wrong?.
5. The Ocean (4:27)
I am the Fifth, I am the prize
I am the book, I am your eyes
I am the Fifth number in line
Symbol of greatness, true to its kind
I am the star where lines intersect
I am the missing link

I am the wound that will never heal
Punctured by nails, the final ordeal
I am the last one that you'd expect
Sense me, feel me, touch me and see

Take your time and listen
Listen to the ocean
Take your time and listen
Just listen to the ocean

I am a word, double the score
Place me in front, alter your luck
I am the land, yet to explore
Visibly rough to the naked eye

I am the star where lines intersect
I am the missing link
I am the last one that you'd expect
Sense me, feel me, touch me and see

Take your time and listen
Listen to the ocean
Take your time and listen
Just listen to the ocean

Close your eyes and listen

You are the wound
The wound that will never heal
You are the hammer, you are the nail
You are the sun
The son and mother revealed
Open up your eyes – now you are alive!

I am the last one that you'd expect
Sense me, feel me, touch me and see

Take your time and listen
Listen to the ocean
Take your time and listen
Just listen to the ocean
6. The Hunt (3:35)
Enter the city that never rests
From the fear of waking in the lion's den
Let the joyous hunt begin

Place your blindfold to the task
Victim by day, culprit by night
The enemy hide right beneath your mask

Empty the barrel on the glass
Cause the gun cuts both ways - cuts both ways!
As you're drawn to the spiral
The clock will count your days - count your days!

The infection is contagious
Acceptable crimes, punishable acts
Bang-bang - kill them all!
You're the critical being, rotten to the core
Flesh stung by a wasp
And the stinger falls to the ground

Empty the barrel on the glass
Cause the gun cuts both ways - cuts both ways!
As you're drawn to the spiral
The clock will count your days - count your days!

I'm a monster in their eyes
But they fail to see
They created... me
They created... me

Empty the barrel on the glass
Cause the gun cuts both ways - cuts both ways!
As you're drawn to the spiral
The clock will count your days - count your days!
Count your days!
7. The Raven Eyes (5:34)
Pour that man another
The things he's seen, the things he's done
His hat and cloak, the antidote
If the man wants to clear his debts
Who are we to subdue his struggle?

He might let you bleed if you're nice
Salvation always has a price

Relax
It will all be over soon
My face the last thing you will see
Relax
The pain will go away
As I carry your body off
Into the arms of an old friend

They looks at him a s the savior
His raven eyes watch through dome of glass
His heart races and his palms they, they sweat
As he etches another in his book

He might let you bleed if you're nice
Salvation always has a price

Relax
It will all be over soon
My face the last thing you will see
Relax
The pain will go away
As I carry your body off
Into the arms of an old friend

A familiar friend returns
To take back what was borrowed
A familiar friend returns
I will greet him with a smile

A familiar friend returns
To take back what was borrowed
A familiar friend returns
I will greet him with a smile

A familiar friend returns
To take back what was borrowed
A familiar friend returns
I will greet him with a...
8. The Wake (2:44)
Instrumental
9. The Resurrection (5:22)
My body lay frozen in the finest attire
Even with eyes shut
I can hear the looks on their faces
Every mourning mash[?] worn with insecurity
These things always bring a few
They come to pay respect to their own shattered dream
Sorry to disappoint but today is not that day
Your crocodile tears will have to wait it seems

Close your eyes, just a moment
Listen to the frame dissolve into horizon
Pick a side, choose your color
Wave your flag ... away from the fences
At last you can hear the sound of your heart beating
For just a moment

Don't you dare, ring that bell
I will claw through the dirt
To all that came, my apologies
This book still has pages left unwritten
A story familiar to those bitten

I will claw through the dirt
To all that came, my apologies
This book still has pages left unwritten

Take these coins off my eyes
I'm not ready to be put down
If only you could hear the screaming in my mind
Take these coins off my eyes

The action breaks the rules
We create, we decide
Security's your box
Art is our line

These coins aren't sewn to my eyes
Take these coins off our eyes

Forget all you thought you knew
You won't put us down
Scratch our names off your list
You'll never put us down!
Put us down!.
10. The Villain (5:00)
I killed them all, of course

I killed them all, of course
For all you know there could have been many more
Caught in the crosshairs of Galveston
You had me dead to rights
Come on!
I even put the goddamn gun in your hands
That's the difference between you and I
I never, never miss

First the arms, then the legs. Finally the head
Dismember the story so it may never be read

I'm no villain! I am just like you
We're in the business of self-preservation
I'm no villain! I am just like you
We're in the business of self-preservation

You missed me in Manhattan
Was it quick? Was it quick?
I'll never tell
Was it quick? Was it quick?
Label me, however you like
I am no villain, I am just like you

First the arms, then the legs. Finally the head
Dismember the story so it may never be read

I'm no villain! I am just like you
We're in the business of self-preservation
I'm no villain! I am just like you
We're in the business of self-preservation

The Jig is up and The Jinx is real
The only grave worth lying in
Is the one you dig yourself

It seems I've won again
You still never caught me
I caught myself

I'm no villain! I am just like you
We're in the business of self-preservation
I'm no villain! I am just like you
We're in the business of self-preservation

I am no villain, I am just like you
I am no villain, I am just like you
11. The Pursuit of Emptiness (4:03)
Trapped inside the impression that we are significant
Our self-indulgence spreads like the chaos of ants
What Earth is to the universe, man is to Earth
It's as simple as that
What is it that places us on top of the food chain?
What is in our bodies that deems us as kings?

I never understood the errors of mankind
Yet I played the failure myself

Cause it flows in out bloodstream
See the root of our being
The reason we believe we will always succeed

"Money can't by happiness", they say
Oh yes, it can
Who wouldn't want it anyway
Crippling society
Cause first you crawl, then you walk
Take one step at a time

What a twist
An unfortunate series of event coming your way
False accusations derive form mistakes
Mistakes you -oh so humanly- made

As timelines progress, values reverse
Your crime is applauded
Is it not allowed to be uneducated?
It it morally and politically incorrect?

The art of illusion mastered by all
Who can tell a truth from a lie?

"Money can't by happiness", they say
Oh yes, it can
Who wouldn't want it anyway
Crippling society
Cause first you crawl, then you walk
Take one step at a time

Cause it flows in out bloodstream
See the root of our being
The reason we believe we will always succeed

"Money can't by happiness", they say
Oh yes, it can
Who wouldn't want it anyway
Crippling society
Cause first you crawl, then you walk
Take one step at a time.
12. The Man Who Fell to Earth (3:53)
Here lies the man who fell to Earth
Who fell to Earth...

A spare beaten spirit soul of sexual dystopia
Whose sound is deathly frantic - deathly frantic
Deathly frantic!

His presence clear elegant and emphatic
And emphatic!

Desperate to break with his past
He lets his mask hang
The alien to emerge form his tomb
In a voice more malevolent
He sketched an execution ritual

There is no light at the end of a tale
The confession of a restless soul
Resurrection is a hard act to follow
Resurrection is a hard act to... follow.
13. The Trial (4:33)
He called me to pay my debts
The crack in his voice was a sign of regret
A deal he proposed of mutual benefit
But the knot in my gut told me to stand back

How could you presume the remedy for the unknown?
Liquefied asphyxiation
Desperate times call for desperate measures

Take the drugs to numb the senses
Sweet euphoria...
When the last drop has fallen
Inject the deadliest poison

Falling away from insanity
Sweet euphoria...
How could the dawn wait a moment?
The nights are the shortest

The court has been summoned
Bring in the accused
"I plead the fifth", he yelled
When asked to take the stand
Your are certified fraud, one of the best
But it's not your life on trial
It's the chance to make amends

Pour that man another
Cause he might let you bleed
If you're nice
Salvation always a price

Take the drugs to numb the senses
Sweet euphoria...
When the last drop has fallen
Inject the deadliest poison

Falling away from insanity
Sweet euphoria...
How could the dawn wait a moment?
The nights are the shortest.
14. Take Me to Church (Hozier cover) (3:46)
Amen
Amen

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I'm a pagan of the good time
My lover's the sunlight
To keep the goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny

Something meaty for the main course
That's a fine-looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We've a lot of starving faithful
That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No masters or kings when the ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and toil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human, only then I am clean

Amen
Amen
Amen

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
Take me to church
Won't you take me?
Take me to church.
