The Ivory Gate of Dreams Part VII: Acquiescence Lyrics

12. The Ivory Gate of Dreams Part VII: Acquiescence (4:23)
Track rating :  80 / 100       Votes :  1       [ ]
Betrayed by innocence
Deceived by delusions
Plagiarized promises
Pale into empty hopes.

Ivory towers bow down
In reverence to daylight
As dreamers awaken
In sleepers somber shade.

Ocean Waves shift leaving
only memories.
Final traces of hope
are swallowed in the deep.

Despair sends a certain calm
A vague sense of relief
released from all our longings
Silently we'll sleep.

Hope leads to quiet desperation
When reality obscures the dream
Makes the mind a grave of memories
That wander like the lonely breeze
Whose whispers echo through ruins rust
of towers torn and dreams turned to dust.
