Paradise Lost

Draconian Times MMXI tracks

Lyrics


1. ENCHANTMENT

Like a fever, fever - inside of me
Like a fever, fever - inside of me

Stand fast, faithful one
See the moon and not the son lout I...
All I need is a simple reminder

Breakdown frail affairs
Turn from the elusive stares but I...
All I need is a simple reminder

Guilt is feeding, feeding, inside I'm cold
Guilt is feeding, feeding, inside I'm cold

In depth grasp the chains
Struggle as the waters gain but I...
All I need is a simple reminder

Observe the formation
Fight until the battles won but I...
All I need is a simple reminder

There's no rule to say you'll cry alone
Just find the strength to help you carry the load
Reverse the frown and let the power surge
But when alone you cannot resist the urge

Feel it, feel it, like the pain of dying
Feel it, feel it, like the pain of dying

Hold on face to face
Damaged by the sad disgrace but I...
All I need is a simple reminder

Twisted the knife in vain
End the grief but who will gain but I...
All I need is a simple excuse




2. HALLOWED LAND

You'd love to be so far away,
It's not a long way to go,
It's gonna end in your pain.
Greet open handed stranger
Create the turmoil, you're not sane.
I want the last one to go the embers will revive,
So stay.

You want to live a lifetime each and every day.

You've struggled before, I swear to do it again,
You've told it before till I, untill I'm weakened and sore...

Seek hallowed land.

You'd love to see right through my veins,
The pale reflection tells ail, predomination sustain,
Crawl over land or mountain in sight the ultimate escape,
A silhouette susiding, enticed unable to relate.

You want to live a lifetime each and every day.

You've beckoned before, you'll never do it again,
You've prayed before who are the prayers for.

Seek hallowed land.

Begone the fools that lead me- I need not to know,
Accept reclining spirit I need to endure.
You try to live a lifetime each and every day,
In this short time of promise, you're a memory...




3. THE LAST TIME

It's a struggle with a failures frown,
And it crashes in front of me,
I see the clouds divide,
Will you stay or try to leave.

The time you're looking at through the door,
And think to walk right through,
I want to ignore,
I only wish that it passes soon.

Hearts beating...

I rise a sunken smile,
As I serve only the ones who served,
What can I achive,
As you steal the air I breathe.

A cruel misfortune,
Forbidding is to see,
When stories may collide,
It's a sad stay of mind.

Hearts beating... for the last time

Hearts beating... for the last time
Hearts beating... it is a state of mind
Hearts beating... for the last time
The peace you cannot find




4. FOREVER FAILURE

You must feel frustration,
'Cause your mind feels such temptation,
And your ways appear a total lack of faith.

You may feel elation,
At your body's re-creation,
And that joy you need, restricted by one thought.

Are you forever - loss of purpose in a passive life,
Are you forever - pale, regarded as a waste of time.

High times are courageous,
But it truth they suit no purpose,
Induced, reduced, unable and afraid...

Can you feel rejection,
And a lack of motivation,
And the joy you need, restricted and delayed.

Are you forever - loss of purpose in a passive life
Are you forever - pale, regarded as a waste of time




5. ONCE SOLEMN

Once solemn, the thing I'm leaving alone,
Once solemn, the looks that turn one to stone,
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the panic inside,
And I'm learning the highs and the lows of the fake promises.

Your powers electrify me,
Your prowess repels apathy,
Your image can turn your soul to stone.

Can't find another way,
Can't find the words to say...

Unchaining the thing that's holding me down,
And it's frustrating, the pressure's getting me down,
And it's trying to live with a bad decision every day,
It's a fever that's eating away in search of a fast release.

Your powers electrify me,
Devour the one that's guilty,
Your image can turn a soul to stone.

Can't find another way,
Can't find the words to say...

Your powers electrify me,
Devour the one who's guilty,
Your prowess repels apathy,
Your image can turn a soul to stone.

Can't find another way,
Can't find the words to say...




6. SHADOWKINGS

A spiral movement, the ultimate mystery,
Will you show... will you show who you are?
It's the truth that untrue suspicion is spreading like a desease,
Do you know... do you know if it is real?

Voices appear inside my brain
Their need, to set me free
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong

Encourage the madness they welcome impurity
I don't know...I don't know... ...who I am!
Fallen blind to the cruel hysteria that's constantly challenging me
All alone... all alone... can't be real

Voices approve I can't relate
Their need to celebrate
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong

Voices approve, the quest begins
Fuel for the shadowkings
Onward they lead before the dawn
Teach me what's right and wrong




7. ELUSIVE CURE

Take a pact, hide the fuel that's gathered here
Pale in view, a fool resigns and taken over
Skin your pride, it's stripped and taken from you
Buried deep are the souls that are waiting for you

For you and only you,
You may attempt to proceed
The sharpest point is aimed at you
Where the pain strikes is clear...

Regret, refrain, I can no longer bear it
Regret, refrain, I can no longer, longer, longer bear it

Rising ages increase elusive cures
A moral life sacrificed, greed's taken over
Ride to take and the craving's buried deeper
Reaching out grasping arms that are waiting you

For you and only you,
You may attempt to proceed
The sharpest point is aimed at you
Where the pain strikes is clear...

Regret, refrain, I can no longer bear it
Regret, refrain, I can no longer, longer, longer bear it




8. YEARN FOR CHANGE

Approaching a silence, a blur of subsidence
Time may heal all troubles, is that what I found?
Joy entices all, until death's loney shroud
But I know, it's forever...

Praying for a change
Praying for a change

Our lives leading onwards, the essence is stronger
Memories of life drifting further away
I must doubt that where there's a will there's a way...
But I know, it's forever...

Praying for a change
Praying for a change

Life is all the pain we endeavour
Life is all the pain we endeavour
Life is all the pain we endeavour
Life is all the pain we endeavour
Life is all the pain we endeavour

Praying for a change
Praying for a change
Praying for a change
Praying for a change




9. SHADES OF GOD

The fire is gone, a time to search and then replace
I'll never know just how the blind can lead the way

They search for faith,
It shows the way... it leads the way
The distant smile,
Banished denial, no more denial

Are you the one who tries to send me to the grave
I cannot know what deals the truth what deals the pain

Weak search for faith
A path to take, you tread in vain
The distant smile,
Banished denial, no more denial




10. HANDS OF REASON

I speak of people whose game is disguise
The myth of flavour appears with no sign

'Cause I see it coming, just like a long lost friend
A temple of rubble, the low and blind betray

Inane, the pleasures that leave a sorry state
You're told of treasures, indulgence cannot wait

But wait for tomorrow and steal some sanity
Insane thoughts are borrowed, unable to repay them back
As I now fall... fall into deprivation
Fall... fallen there's still tomorrow
Love hides the things you'll never know

A lack of reason that makes a mortal man
Untold the treason, the past where it began

'Cause I see horror, horror to think about
Insane thoughts are borrowed, unable to repay them back
As I see the blood, blood on the hands of reason
Blood, bloody the hands that lead me
Love for the ones you cannot know




11. I SEE YOUR FACE

Coming back today, the pounding thoughts relay
It's a time that's for myself
I'm laying low, strife is gaining slow
A kind of anguish. I don't need...

When I see your frown, hurt will put me down
If I could see a light shining
Is this borrowed time maybe a final time?
That I can see a light shining

Will you make it slow, pure evil makes it slow
I know you're brandishing the sign
Dare I take a chance? In this circumstance
Or will I leave without a hope

When you seal my fate sorrow turns to hate
If I can see a light shining
Is this borrowed time maybe a final time?
That I can see a light shining

What one man makes is there for one to take
A single handed fall from grace
Hearts beating just, beating till the last
A draining feeling's all that I know

When I see your frown, it becomes my frown
If I can see a light shining
Is this borrowed time maybe a final time?
That I can see a light shining




12. JADED

Opaque the dissident establishment
That we all suffer
Refill the porous shell with words that
mean so many things

Words mean so many things

The feeling can't avoid you

Stoking the fires of absence
Loss and anguish long departed
Adjust to change re-arranging, burns
in many ways

Pain burns in many ways

The feeling can't avoid you




13. FAITH DIVIDES US, DEATH UNITES US

Refrain from the way we were
Slain the invincible
Changed are the ways of man
Fortitude to face the path

Vanquish the pain
Don't want to see it fail
(Faith divides us - death unites us)
Vanquish the pain
Don't want to seek despair
(Faith divides us - death unites us)

Tears for a hopeless case
Outside is still, so vague
Frayed the landscapes of old
Cleared the indelible

Cannot sleep through darkened skies
Cannot dream until it's over




14. THE RISE OF DENIAL

Ascending from your fallen past
Life it’s the same
Attending to a loneliness
For you, never

Through channels of uncertainty
A rise of denial
This sadness is positioning
As Fortune's snares lay me down

In a dream despite the air we breathe - serenity

Grip the dead hands of the last
Detritus invades
Indefinite the consequence
For you endeavour

To aggravate uncertainty
A rise of denial
This passion wont forgive and ill fortune tears you down

All that's been ignites
Suppressing me, serenity




15. AS I DIE

As I die

Stare as eyes uphold me
And wait to see right through
And curse me... The love has crippled you

Shadows haunt the night
Burning my disguise

Reaping through the truth
Life becomes untrue

Sin the last diversion
My fate will be untouched
Dismissed now, the anger of a fool

Shadows haunt the night
Forgive me as I die

Taking a chance
And take what you gain
My soul it has no price
Total release is out of harms way
Until I can decide
You push me, can't you see, I'm not real
