Red Silent Tides tracks

Lyrics


1. DAWNMELTING

Their souls were lost
Their dreams are drowning
In red silent tides.

White skin, cold shiver
Why are you so distant from me?
Dream on, this never
This no more it is a dream again.

Every time I look deeper into your eyes
I want you so bad that it hurts inside
Rising comet racing star-lit sky
I wanna feel my skin on hers.

Your whispers' erotic
I feel like you're inside of me, yeah!
I'm running, too far and
Don't want to partition once again.

What did I do to deserve you so
I am totally devoted to your eyes
Have you turn your glass up to the moon
Deny the dawn will come and light up.

I'm wishing for another memory
Only to save your words
I wish for another fantasy
Only for your dreams, well I
I wish for another myself.
To be wholly yours again.

I'm hoping for another touch
This will of yours, it hurts so much
I won't give up for a night to do what should be done
This constant feeling drives me mad
I can not rest, I can not stand
I won't give up for a night to do what should be done.

I'm wishing for another memory
Only to save your words
I wish for another fantasy
Only for your dreams and I
I wish for another myself.
To be wholly yours again, yeah yeah!




2. THE LAST HOUR

(No lyrics available)




3. SILENCE DE MORT

I walk in silence
Silence de mort

Every night the same old dream
La fleur du cœur being slaughtered from within
And I know how - I know now - I know how

Every time I can feel, I can hear
The taste of my blood the beat of my heart
And I feel pain - I feel great - I feel pain

...And this is no Wonderland
No Alice, no Cat, no Mad Hatter my dear
Here the silence is real

All the dreams that I hold, all my fantasies unfold
And the things I wanna live
Are just fake happy endings with figures pretending
They've washed all the illusions far away

The marionettes are drinking still
While celebrating their own pile of shit
Like it is great - like it is the main attraction

The stains which remain on my best suit
Are always of the colours I hate the most
While the ones I cherish, they just fade away

...And this is no Wonderland
No Alice, no Cat, no Mad Hatter my dear
Here the silence is real

All the dreams that I hold, all my fantasies unfold
And the things I wanna live
Are just fake happy endings with figures pretending
They've washed all the illusions far away

I walk in silence
Silence de mort




4. THE CABAL

I wake up and I feel I was stranded
In a world that hardly represents me
Step by step I collect all my nightmares
Like a modern Renoir I'm painting my life away

Don't you think that I'm not gonna worry
Don't you think that I don't feel sorry
Soon I'll find my way and I'll let you know

Sitting down in my room I feel so empty
Staring with lonely eyes at the words I am laying down
With cold blood I swallow all the absinthe
That you gave me
That cold winter night

Don't you think that I'm not gonna worry
Don't you think that I don't feel sorry
Soon I'll find my way and I'll let you know

I feel a decadent poet
Forced to bury his art – forced to bury his own heart
Under the mud of a pigsty
A cabal of murdered broken hearts
Longing for my bitter taste

Lost you, I have lost you, brother
The strength you hid inside your eyes
Makes me believe I can still live my life
I learned from the ashes
Of the tears I dropped for all these years
My love is now living, is living for real

I feel a decadent poet
Forced to bury his art – forced to bury his own heart
Under the mud of a pigsty
A cabal of murdered broken hearts
Longing for my bitter taste




6. POSSESSION

Carry on, everything's over
Stare at the dawn, as sky is covering
Clouds are darkening the horizon and our lives
Carry on, we can't stand this silence.

Holding on to a wicked sensation
Pounding strong, it's pure emotion
How long does it last inside our living hearts?
Every beat, really loses away a part.

You carry my heart, you carry my dreams
In your pain and it's part of me
Where the poet lives, no poetry can exist
If there is no dream, you carry my heart.

You carry my heart, you carry my dreams
Hand in hand so far from here
Through the dark of night and through the leaves of fall
I am leaving you, as you carry my heart.

Carry on, I can't let you burn me up
But you know that I can't resist
No mere human can stand a fire not
Being consumed, I ask myself,
You and me will be us?

You carry my heart, you carry my dreams
In your pain and it's part of me
Where the poet lives, no poetry can exist
If there is no dream, you carry my heart.

You carry my heart, you carry my dreams
Hand in hand so far from here
Through the dark of night and through the leaves of fall
I am leaving you, as you carry my heart

Please allow me to deeply live this dream
While the others all around still sleep
She wrote fairytales of disobedience
While the fire burned, possession of their souls

You carry my heart, you carry my dreams
Hand in hand so far from here
through the dark of night and through the leaves of fall
I am leaving you, as you carry my heart

Carry on.... everything's over




7. YOUR HEROES ARE DEAD

I don't know who you are
In the mirror I see you still wear a mask
A disguise, a cure for all the madness.

Why don't you get rid
Of the junk you used to wear
In front of me, are you sure that
You were feeling better.

All the laughter, the good time
Covered up all of your crimes
Now tell me who you are
Now tell me who you are
All the darkness, all the pain
Was it really all in vain?
Now tell me who you are
Now tell me who you are.

Far away you just wanna run away
Your heroes - all gone astray
When you say that you're gonna end your play
Your confidence all gone away.
I just saw it happening,
I saw the ones who love you all run away
Your heroes are all dead.

The truth behind the lies
Is a blink well hidden deep inside your eyes
It's a way to make them all feel stupid.

Oh if you just knew
That the only one who was
Being fooled was you
Are you sure that you were
Feeling better.

All the laughter, the good time
Covered up all of your crimes
Now tell me who you are
Now tell me who you are.
All the darkness, all the pain
Was it really all in vain?
Now tell me who you are
Now tell me who you are.

Far away you just wanna run away
Your heroes - all gone astray
When you say that you're gonna end your play
Your confidence all gone away.
I just saw it happening,
I saw the ones who love you all run away
Your heroes are all dead.

Far away you just wanna run away
Your heroes - all gone astray
When you say that you're gonna end your play
Your confidence all gone away.
I just saw it happening,
I saw the ones who love you all run away
Your heroes are all dead.




8. THOSE DAYS

(Instrumental)




9. THIS NIGHTMARE WILL NEVER END

Sometimes I feel like
I don't wanna face myself and run away ... in silence
All the memories, sentences that
I just didn't wanna say ...oh yesterday
Walking in silence,
I could face my fears and try not to forget where
I belong - where do I come from?

I was flying like a raven, bringing sadness
To you all then my heart broke into pieces,
That's when I started to fall.

I have walked on the path of solitary victim ...in silence
I spoke the tongue of the dumb and no one listened to me.
Walking in silence, I just didn't listen,
I didn't want to know where I belonged
What the hell I did to myself?

I was flying like a raven, bringing sadness
To you all then my heart broke into pieces,
That's when I started to fall.

Now I close my eyes, for all the shame I feel inside
I know I hate myself, for all the things I've said
And all the things I've done,
And every time I think about it now
I would kill myself ...but now I wanna face this.

You come to reach the darkest level
And you don't know what it means
Then realize you lived a nightmare when you thought
it was a dream
You can say that you're so sorry
For all the mess that you have been trough
But only when you'll free yourself
you'll get to have the best for you.

I was flying like a raven,
Bringing sadness to you all then my heart
Broke into pieces, that's when I started to fall.

Now I close my eyes, for all the shame I feel inside
I know I hate myself, for all the things I've said
And all the things I've done,
And every time I think about it now
I would kill myself ...but I just wanna face this.

This nightmare will never end...
This nightmare will never end
This nightmare will never end...
This nightmare will never end




10. WHAT'S LEFT OF ME

For years disguised smiles were
The only friends for me for years
I thought they were for real
I closed my heart and with my hands
I fooled myself Leaving me a pearl without a shell

Then I woke up, then I woke up and found all that
I left behind I’m packing it all, and leaving with you

So close your eyes and take my hand now
I’ll take you to my dark wonderland a place
You’ll never want to leave
A place you’ll never want to leave tonight
I will caress you all the night
And day whisper sweet words
Every day captive in your arms, your prey
In your arms a prey tonight

I’ll dig a place so far from here
A hole to hide my love, to save what’s left of me

They put me on trial after the sentence
Had been sealed with dismal glances
Ill-concealed a crow was flying in
The rainy sky that night bringing good news, not a fright

The underdog, the last in line,
Oh please stop all this wicked whine
I’m packing my things, and leaving with you

So close your eyes…

After all we went through Can you feel me deep..
I dedicate this night to you

‘Long all the miles I’ve been walking
The tears have counted my progress
Please touch my heart … together we will fix this silence
In this dark sweet fairytale
They ran out of happy endings
Please touch my soul … we can re-arrange all this nightmare
