The Spirit Carries On

Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say ” Life is too short”
“The here and the now”
And ” You`re only given one shot”
But could there be more
Have I lived before
Or could this be all that we`ve got?

If I die tomorrow
I`d be alright
Because I believe
That after we`re gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying
I used to think death was the end
But that was before
I`m not scared anymore
I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still have to try

If I die tomorrow
I`d be alright
Because I believe
That after we`re gone
The spirit carries on

“Move on, be brave
Don`t weep at my grave
Because I`m no longer here
But please never let
Your memories of me disappear”

Safe in the light that surrounds me
Free of the fear and the pain
My questioning mind
Has help me to find
The meaning in my life again
Victoria`s real
I finally feel
At peace with the girl in my dreams
And now that I`m here
It`s perfectly clear
I found out what all of this means

If I die tomorrow
I`d be alright
Because I believe
That after we`re gone
The spirit carries on

Another Day

Live another day
Climb a little higher
Find another reason to stay
Ashes in your hands
Mercy in your eyes
If you’re searching for a silent
sky…

You won’t find it here
Look another way
You won’t find it here
So die another day

The coldness of this words
The message in his silence,
“Face the candle to the
wind…”
This distance in my voice
Isn’t leaving you a choice
So if you’re looking for a time
to run away…

You won’t find it here
Look another way
You won’t find it here
So try another day

They took pictures of our
dreams
Ran to hide behind the stairs
And said maybe when it’s right
for you, they’ll fall
But if they don’t come down
Resist the need to pull them in
And throw them away
Better to save the mystery
Than surrender to the secret

You won’t find it here
Look another way
You won’t find it here
So try another day

Surrounded

Morning comes too early
and nighttime falls too late
And sometimes all I want to do
is wait
The shadow I’ve been hiding in
has fled from me today

I know it’s easier to walk away
than look it in the eye
But I will raise a shelter to the sky
and here beneath this
star tonight I’ll lie
She will slowly yield the light
As I awaken from the longest
night

Dreams are shaking
Set sirens waking up tired eyes
With the light the memories
all rush into his head

By a candle stands a mirror
Of his heart and soul she
dances
She was dancing thru the night
above his bed

And walking to the window
he throws the shutters out
against the wall
And from an ivory tower hears
her call
“Let light surround you”

It’s been a long, long time
He’s had a while to think it over
In the end he only sees the
change
Light to dark
Dark to light
Light to dark
Dark to light

Heaven must be more than this
When angels waken with a kiss
Sacred hearts won’t take the
pain
But mine will never be the same

He stands before the window
His shadow slowly fading from
the wall
And from an ivory tower hears
her call
“Let the light surround you”

Once lost but I was found
When I heard the stained glass
shatter all around me
I sent the spirits tumbling
down the hill
But I will hold this one on high
above me still
She whispers words to clear my mind
I once could see but now at last
I’m blind

I know it’s easier to walk away
than look it in the eye
But I had given all that
I could take
And now I’ve only habits left
to break
Tonight I’ll still be lying here
Surrounded in all the light

Anna Lee

Helpless child
They invite your hands to fill their needs
Will you be the same
Shameless smile
To steal from you the innocence that bleeds
Will they feel your pain

Trying to believe
The scars unseen
The tears wash clean
You don’t wanna breathe the air you breathe
You don’t know how you’ll live a life alone

She keeps holding on
Holding on to you
Let her breathe the air
Don’t wanna be alone where do you belong
Anna lee

Behind those eyes
The vivid scene
A lucid dream within
Questioned secrets are revealed
And everytime
You can’t deny
The lines that trace your skin
Wounds that never heal

Trying to believe
The scars unseen
The tears wash clean
You don’t wanna breathe the air you breathe
You don’t know how you’ll live a life alone

She keeps holding on
Holding on to you
Let her breathe the air
Don’t wanna be alone where do you belong
Anna Lee

And now she’s calling out a name
Can’t keep on hiding all her pain
You feel the rain move in
As you begin
To turn and answer the call

Trying to believe
The scars unseen
The tears wash clean
You don’t wanna breathe the air you breathe
You don’t know how you’ll live a life alone

She keeps holding on
Holding on to you
Let her breathe the air
Don’t wanna be alone where do you belong
Anna Lee

Through Her Eyes

She never really had a chance
On that fateful moonlit night
Sacrificed without a fight
A victim of her circumstances

Now that I’ve become aware
And I’ve exposed this tragedy
A sadness grows inside of me
It all seems so unfair

I’m learning all about my life
By looking through her eyes

Just beyond the churchyard gates
Where the grass is overgrown
I saw the writing on her stone
I felt like I would suffocate

In loving memory of our child
So innocent, eyes open wide
I felt so empty as I cried
Like part of me had died

I’m learning all about my life
By looking through her eye

And as her image
Wandered through my head
I wept just like a baby

As I lay awake in bed

And I know what it’s like
To lose someone you love
And this felt just the same

She wasn’t given any choice
Desperation stole her voice
I’ve been given so much more in life
I’ve got a son, I’ve got a wife

I had to suffer one last time
To grieve for her and say goodbye
Relieve the anguish of my past
To find out who I was at last

The door has opened wide
I’m turning with the tide
Looking through her eyes

 

The Answer Lies Within

Look around
Where do you belong
Don’t be afraid
You are not the only one

Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within

Life is short, so learn from your mistakes
And stand behind, the choices that you make
Face each day with both eyes open wide
And try to give, don’t keep it all inside

Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by, in doubt
The answer lies within

You’ve got the future on your side
You’re gonna be fine now
I know whatever you decide
You’re gonna shine!!! (shinee)

Don’t let the day go by
Don’t let it end
Don’t let a day go by, in doubt
You are ready to begin

Don’t let a day go by in doubt
The answer lies within

I Walk Beside You

There’s a story in your eyes
I can see the hurt behind your smile
For every sign I recognize
Another one escapes me

Let me know what plagues your mind
Let me be the one to know you best
Be the one to hold you up
When you feel like you’re sinking

Tell me once again
What’s beneath the pain you’re feeling
Don’t abandon me
Or think you can’t be saved

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Summon up your ghosts for me
Rest your tired thoughts upon my hands
Step inside this sacred place
When all your dreams seem broken

Resonate inside this temple
Let me be the one who understands
Be the one to carry you
When you can walk no further

Tell me once again
What’s below the surface bleeding
If you’ve lost your way
I will take you in

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Oh, when everything is wrong
Oh, when hopelessness surrounds you
Oh, the sun will rise again
The tide you swim against
Will carry you back home
So don’t give up
Don’t give in

I walk beside you
Wherever you are
Whatever it takes
No matter how far

Through all that may come
And all that may go
I walk beside you
I walk beside you

Forsaken

For a while I thought I fell asleep
Lying motionless inside a dream

Then rising suddenly
I felt a chilling breath upon me
She softly whispered in my ear
(Forsaken)

Forsaken
I have come for you tonight
Awaken
Look in my eyes and take my hand
Give yourself up to me

I waited painfully
For night to fall again
Trying to silence the fear within me

Out of an ivory mist
I felt a stinging kiss
And saw a crimson stain on her lips

I have to know your name
Where have I seen your face before?
My dear one don’t you be afraid

Forsaken
I have come for you tonight
Awaken
Look in my eyes and take my hand
Give yourself up to me

Take me far away
Close your eyes
And hold your breath
To the ends of the earth

Forsaken
I have come for you tonight
Awaken
Look in my eyes and take my hand

Forsaken
Fly away with me tonight
Awaken
Renew my life
Now you are mine
Give yourself up to me

As I Am

Don’t
Tell me what’s in
Tell me how to write
Don’t tell me how to win
This fight
Isn’t your life
It isn’t your right
To take the only thing that’s
Mine

Proven over time
It’s over your head
Don’t try to read between the
Lines
Are clearly defined
Never lose sight of
Something you believe in

Takin’ in the view from the outside
Feeling like the underdog
Watching through the window I’m on the outside
Living like the underdog

I’ve been trying to justify you
In the end I will just defy you

To those who understand, I extend my hand
To the doubtful I demand, take me as I am
Not under your command, I know where I stand
I won’t change to fit your plan, Take me as I am

As I am

Still
Running uphill
Swimming against the current
I wish I weren’t so
Fucked
Feels like I’m stuck
Lost in a sea of mediocrity

”Slow down,
You’re thinking too much
Where is your soul?”
You cannot touch
The way I
Play
Or tell me what to say
You’re in the way
Of all that I believe in

Takin’ in the view from the outside
Feeling like the underdog
Watching through the window I’m on the outside
Living like the underdog
I’ve been wasting my breath on you
Open minds will descend upon you

To those who understand, I extend my hand
To the doubtful I demand, take me as I am
Not under your command, I know where I stand
I won’t change to fit your plan, take me as I am

Fatal Tragedy

[N:]
Alone at night
I feel so strange
I need to find
All the answers to my dreams

When I sleep at night
I hear the cries
What does this mean?

I shut the door and traveled to another home
I met an older man, he seemed to be alone
I felt that I could trust him
He talked to me that night;

“Lad did you know a girl was murdered here?”
“This fatal tragedy was talked about for years”
Victoria`s gone forever
Only memories remain
She passed away
She was so young

Without love
Without truth
There can be no turning back

Without faith
Without hope
There can be no peace of mind

As the night went on
I started to find my way
I learned about a tragedy
A mystery still today

I tried to get more answers
But he said, “You`re on your own”
Then he turned away and left me
As I stand there all alone
He said, “You`ll know the truth
As your future days unfold”

Without love
Without truth
There can be no turning back

Without faith
Without hope
There can be no peace of mind

[H:]
“Now it`s time to see how you died. Remember that death
is not the end but only a transition.”

Strange Deja Vu

[N:]
Subconscious strange sensation
Unconscious relaxation
What a pleasant nightmare
And I can`t wait to get there again

Every time I close my eyes
There`s another vivid surprise
Another whole life waiting
Chapters unfinished, fading

Closer now – Slowly coming into view
I`ve arrived – Blinding sunshine beaming through

There`s a house I`m drawn into
Familiar settings, nothing new
There`s a pathway leading there
With a haunting chill in the air

There`s room at the top of the stairs
Every night I`m drawn up there
There`s a girl in the mirror
Her face is getting clearer
Young child won`t you tell me why I`m here?

In her eyes – I sense a story never told
Behind the disguise – There`s something tearing
At her soul

[V:]
Tonight I`ve been searching for it
A feeling that`s deep inside me
Tonight I`ve been searching for
The one that nobody knows
Trying to break free

I just can`t help myself
I`m feeling like I`m going out of my head
Tears my heart into two
I`m not the one the sleeper thought he knew

[N:]
Back on my feet again
Eyes open to real world
Metropolis surrounds me
The mirror`s shattered the girl

Why is this other life
Haunting me everyday
I`d break through the other side
If only I`d find the way

Something`s awfully familiar
The feeling`s so hard to shake
Could I have lived in that other world
It`s a link that I`m destined to make

I`m still searching but I don`t know what for
The missing key to unlock my mind`s door

Today I am searching for it
A feeling that won`t go away
Today I am searching for it
The one that I only know
Trying to break free

I just can`t help myself
I`m feeling like I`m going out of my head
Tears my soul into two
I`m not the one I thought I always knew

I just can`t help myself
I`m feeling like I`m going out of my head
Uncanny, strange Deja Vu
But I don`t mind – I hope to find the truth

Hollow Years

He’s just the kind of man
You hear about
Who leaves his family
For an easy out
They never saw the signs
He never said a word
He couldn’t take another day

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you’ll understand

Once the stone
You’re crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that’s raining
Over you head disappears
The noise that you’ll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

She’s not the kind of girl
You hear about
She’ll never want another
She’ll never be without
She’ll give you all the signs
She’ll tell you everything
Then turn around and walk away

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you’ll understand

Once the stone
You’re crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that’s raining
Over you head disappears
The noise that you’ll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

Carry me to the shoreline
Bury me in the sand
Walk me across the water
And maybe you’ll understand

Once the stone
You’re crawling under
Is lifted off your shoulders
Once the cloud that’s raining
Over you head disappears
The noise that you’ll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years

Pull Me Under

Lost in the sky
Clouds roll by
And I roll with them
Arrows fly
Seas increase
And then fall again

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day sends future to past
Every breath leaves me one less
To my last

Watch the sparrow falling
Gives new meaning to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow
Then some other day

I’ll take seven lives for one
And then my only father’s son
As sure as I did ever love him
I am not afraid

This world is spinning around me
The whole world keeps
Spinning around me
All life is future to past
Every breath leaves me one less
To my last

Pull me under
Pull me under
Pull me under I’m not afraid
All that I feel is honor and spite
All I can do is set it right

Dust fills my eyes
Clouds roll by
And I roll with them
Centuries cry
Orders fly
And I fall again

This world is spinning inside me
The whole world is
Spinning inside of me
Every day sends future to past
Every step brings me closer
To my last

Pull me under
Pull me under
Pull me under I’m not afraid
Living my life too much in
The sun
Only until your will is done

 

Take The Time

Just let me catch my breath…
I’ve heard the promises
I’ve seen the mistakes
I’ve had my fair share of tough
breaks
I need a new voice, a new law,
a new way
Take the time, reevaluate
It’s time to pick up the pieces,
Go back to square one
I think it’s time for a change

There is something that I feel
To be something that is real
I feel the heat within my mind
And craft new changes with
my eyes
Giving freely wandering
promises
A place with decisions I’ll
fashion
I won’t waste another breath

You can feel the waves coming on
(It’s time to take the time)
Let them destroy you or carry
you on
(It’s time to take the time)
You’re fighting the weight of
the world
But no one can save you this
time
Close your eyes
You can find all you need in
your mind

The unbroken spirit
Obscured and disquiet
Finds clearness this trial
demands
And at the end of this day sighs
an anxious relief
For the fortune lies still in his
hands

If there’s pensive fear, a
wasted year
A man must learn to cope
If his obsession’s real,
Suppression that he feels must
turn to hope

Life is no more assuring than
love
(It’s time to take the time)
There are no answers from
voices above
(It’s time to take the time)
You’re fighting the weight of
the world
And no one can save you this
time
Close your eyes
You can find all you need in
your mind

I close my eyes
And feel the water rise around
me
Drown the bead of time
Let my senses fall away
I can see much clearer now,
I’m blind

Find all you need in your mind
If you take the time

Metropolis – Part I – The Miracle And The Sleeper

The smile of dawn
Arrived early May
She carried a gift from her
home
The night shed a tear
To tell her of fear
And of sorrow and pain
She’ll never outgrow

Death is the first dance, eternal

There’s no more freedom
The both of you will be
confined to this mind

I was told there’s miracle for
each day that I try
I was told there’s a new love
that’s born for each one that
has died
I was told there’d be no one to
call on when I feel alone and
afraid
I was told if you dream of the
next world
You’ll find yourself swimming
in a lake of fire

As a child, I thought I could
live without pain without
sorrow
As a man I’ve found it’s all
caught up with me
I’m asleep yet I’m so afraid

Somewhere like a scene from a
memory
There’s a picture worth a
thousand words
Eluding stares from faces
before me
It hides away and will never be
heard of again

Deceit is the second without end

The city’s cold blood teaches us
to survive
Just keep my heart in your eyes
and we’ll stay alive

The third arrives…

Before the leaves have fallen
Before we lock the doors
There must be the third and
last dance
This one will last forever
Metropolis watches and
thoughtfully smiles
She’s taken you to your home

It can only take place
When the struggle between
our children has ended
Now the Miracle and the
Sleeper know that the third
is love

Love is the Dance of Eternity

Under A Glass Moon

Tell me
Remind me
Chase the water racing from
the sky
Always beside me
Taste the memories running
from my eyes
Nervous flashlights scan my
dreams
Liquid shadows silence their
screams
I smile at the moon
Chasing water from the sky
I argue with the clouds
Stealing beauty from my eyes

Outside the soundness of your
mind
Bathing your soul in silver tears
Beneath a blackened summer sky
Praying for time to disappear

Beneath a summer sky
Under glass moonlight
Night awaits the lamb’s arrival
Liquid shadows crawl
Silver teardrops fall
The bride subsides to her
survival

By your hand
I’ve awakened
Bear this honor in my name
