Come into my life
Regress into a dream
We will hide
Build a new reality
Draw another picture
Of the life you could have had
Follow your instincts
And choose the other path

You should never be afraid
You’re protected from trouble and pain
Why, why is this a crisis in your eyes again

Come to be
How did it come to be
Tied to a railroad
No love to set us free
Watch our souls fade away
Let our bodies crumble away
Don’t be afraid

I will take the blow for you
And I’ve had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To be a better man

 

When passion’s lost and all the trust is gone,
Way too far, for way too long
Children crying, cast out and neglected,
Only in a world so cold, only in a world this cold
Hold the hand of your best friend, look into their eyes,
Then watch them drift away
Some might say, we’ve done the wrong things,
For way too long, for way too long.

Fever inside the storm,
So I’m turning away,
Away from the name
(calling your names)
Away from the stones
(throw sticks and stones)
‘Cause I’m through mending the wounds of us.

Keep your thorns
‘Cause I’m running away,
Away from the games
(fucking head games)
Away from the space
(hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold.

Burning whispers, remind me of the days,
I was left alone, in a world this cold
Guilty of the same things, provoked by the cause,
I’ve left alone, in a world so cold.

Fever inside the storm,
So I’m turning away,
Away from the name
(calling your names)
Away from the stones
(throw sticks and stones)
‘Cause I’m through mending the wounds of us.

Keep your thorns,
‘Cause I’m running away,
Away from the games
(fucking head games)
Away from the space
(hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold.

I’m flying, I’m flying away,
Away from the names
(calling your names)
Away from the games
(fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold.

Why does everyone feel like my enemy,
Don’t want any part of depression or darkness, I’ve had enough,
Sick and tired, bring the sun, or I’m gone, or I’m gone.

I’m backing out, I’m no pawn,
No mother-fucking slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don’t give a shit about anything.

Backing out, giving up, no mother-fucking slave to this,
Never lied
Never left
Never lived
Never loved
Never lost
Never hurt
Never worry about being me, or anyone else
Not a care, no concern, don’t give a shit about anything.

I need to find a darkened corner,
A lightless corner,
Where it’s safer and calmer.

I’m turning away,
Away from the name
(calling your names)
Away from the stones
(throw sticks and stones)
‘Cause I’m through mending the wounds of us

I’m running away,
Away from the games
(fucking head games)
Away from the space
(hate this head space)
The circumstances of a world so cold.

I’m flying, I’m flying away,
Away from the names
(calling your names)
Away from the games
(fucking head games)
The circumstances of a world so cold.

[Part I: Rise]

Save me now
Set me free

“If you could only show me how”

Show me how
To live my dream

“Living the dream I will die”

Aiming high
Shooting low

“You won’t be laughing when I’m”

To raise the bar
Or take the fall?

“Climbing the mountain”

Someone rescue me
Help me, please!
Against all odds
I long to be free

Will no one listen to my plea?
The sky is falling in on me

“Save me now, set me free, show me how, live a dream
Aiming high, shooting low, raise the bar, take the fall
Rescue me, help me please, how long to be free
Intervene, I’ll defeat, all those who stepped on me”

Intervene
I’ll defeat
All the people who
Stepped on me

You have been standing in my way
You won’t believe it when I’m

Soaring through the sky
Free from your burden
Say your last goodbyes
I won’t be back again

When my name becomes tomorrow’s news
On top of the mountain I cannot be moved
I scale the summit like an unstoppable force
With iron wings I will prove my worth to you all

I will be dancing on your grave
You won’t be laughing when I’m

Soaring through the sky
Free from your burden
Say your last goodbyes
I won’t be back again

Too close to the flame
Ambition has burned me
With my wings ablaze
I’m falling back to earth

[Part II: Fall]

Now that my feathers are broken
Crestfallen my head is bowed
Splashing down into the ocean
Something seems different now

The world I once knew has eroded
Humanity’s fossilized
The beasts have become the new masters
Is reality compromised?

Advanced technological breakthroughs
And superior firepower
The frontiers of war and resistance
Seem abstract and vacant now

For countless years I have been longing
To apologize, apologize
A world without end is upon us
But time is in short supply

Soaring through the sky
Free from your burden
Say your last goodbyes
I won’t be back again

Too close to the flame
Ambition has burned me
With my wings ablaze
I’m falling back to earth

Maze broken, She’s runnin’, Feet swollen
He’s comin’, She’s stolen
And before he even knows it she’s gone…

Tea cups sittin’ on the hollow tree stumps
He’s dumped, and can’t seem to swallow these lumps
The beat goes on…

Same fire, New passion, Old flame
Trade it in for a summer fling
There’s nothing like that sweet old song…

Tip over, Root the trees, Bend the leaves
Blend in with the open wound
The freeze frames keep him warm…

The day’s frost is scraped off the weight loss
The new sign that says keep off
As he speeds off into the storm…

Out of spite the lighting strikes him twice
He’s peeking out on the pike and cheatin life
Peeling out on the lawn…

Now he’s idling , His time is dwindling
In his mind he’s figuring out life’s about the little things
And his labyrinth
And all his magnificence can only keep the mice trapped
The princess is innocent
She doesn’t belong…

(I never thought I’d miss you)
They had a ceremony where he put her in a bridle, the headstall
She stopped to think for a minute, and in a split second went AWOL.
(I never thought I’d miss you)
He draws in the chin as in a expression of resentment or scorn

He’s pullin’ on the reigns, the bridle, the shower the storm…
The maze, the high tower, clouds are at war…
The reigns, the bridle, the shower, the storm…
The maze, high tower, clouds are at war…
The reigns, the bridle, the shower, the storm…
The maze, the high tower, clouds are at war, clouds are at war, clouds are at war…

(I never thought I’d miss you)
