All That Remains tracks

Lyrics


Nameless Faceless

See the broken man torn and twisted in grief
Screaming to the sky in pain and disbelief
How could it be that any man could allow this
Living in the filth of faded innocence

Through it all the hearts of men grow colder
Numb to the world as the cowards get bolder
Yesterday's success succeeds in tainting the mindset
Still we wonder where the good old days went

And I am nameless
There's no mistaking where the future lies
And I am faceless
In the bed you've made sleeps the failure in you tonight

Take a look around at the hell you've created
Self respect and dignity just memories faded
Each day a little closer to the fate you have made
Life wasted on myself and the stench of my decay

Refuse to accept the role that you would have me play
The call of its master I won't live to betray
Outstretching of your hand you are a man undone
No shame, no pride, no faith, your soul's a setting sun




Enemy

Do you remember me
You can't see the things
That make me who I am
You'll never understand

And I gotta keep moving, you're living off my sweat
Moving, the devil's on my back
And these are the days that I dreamed about
And you're always there to remind me

You're my enemy
All that we had has gone away
There are times that fade away
But you'll still be my enemy

The friend you had in me
You turned on so easily
I'm sad to see you go
At least now I know

And I see clearly now
You tried to bleed me
And I see clearly now
You tried to feed on me




Wanderlust

I've been around the world a thousand times
Seen the same places and faces and traces
I never forget, reject, expect
Quenching my thirst
Complacence is curse

I climb from mountain to mountain
Bird on a wing
Like the wind
The song that I sing

Never satisfied to stand in line
Wasting my mind
It's my time to shine

I just can't get away from yesterday
But I keep on living the wanderer's way
And over and over I start anew
But I can't escape the thoughts of you

I tried to play your game a thousand times
And I let it infect and detect and affect
My clarity, my charity, my destiny
Sold out who I was
And what I could be

I drift from moment to moment
Looking for serenity
A place to stand
A home for me
In a world that's fueling insanity

Never satisfied to stand in line
Wasting my mind
It's my time to shine




All That Remains

Looking over my shoulder at the road that follows
What once seemed to matter now dust at my feet
Memories whisper at the edge of perception
Silent reminders of a life incomplete

And all that remains
Are the scars to remind me
And all the lives I've thrown away
And all that remains
Are the bars that confine me
To a past I can't escape

Words that are unspoken are now reminders
Each second dies a silent death unmourned
I tried as a martyr to lead her, to guide her
Now I'm alone painted by the color of scorn

And all that remains
Are the scars to remind me
And all the lives I've thrown away
And all that remains
Are the bars that confine me
To a past I can't escape




The Test

The time is right to make a change
To realize it ain't the same
The time is right to make a change
To realize today's the day

In my life I search for truth
What am I supposed to do?

Where am I going to?
Where am I going to?
I tried to leave it
Tried to believe it
Where am I?

This is only a test

The time is right to cross the line
To purify deep inside
The time is right to leave a stain
To make a mark, today's the day

In my life I search for clues
What am I supposed to do?

Why can't you understand?
Times are changing, rearranging
Why can't you understand?
My head is shaking, rearranging

The time is right to make a change
And realize it ain't the same




It's A Lie

On the radio you speak
To millions that you claim to teach
Minions never out of reach
Propaganda brings belief

It's a lie
It's a lie

Speak the speak the quips you quote
You never write the speech you note
If they can view then they can vote
False sincerity that you emote

Nobody knows exactly what the future holds
Claim to have a second sight until the day unfolds
When will they see that the path I choose is up to me
The scars that they leave are deep

Make decisions through the night
Proven wrong but claim they're right
Drag the world into their fight
Your leader leads you into this plight




Daze Of The Week

Lightning strikes turning ashes to embers
Starting the fire ignites the fuel I bring
Burning ambition will give me protection
Reach for the ring and you will be the King
The King!

This iron will is my constant companion
Battle is over my strength inside is strong
Whispered memories of a failure abandoned
All that I am screams that this all wrong

Lord hear my plea, when will it be
Time for me to see You clearly?
Walk in a daze
And weak with pain
Carry me back to life again

A lifetime of cheap whine will not improve your station
The tempest to be best will prove the others fake
One man accuses another defends me
A delicate balance of hope and heartache

What is the ally that gives you the green light?
What is the secret to take you to the peak?
Where is your shaman to give you the magic?
And when will you realize He's all you seek?




The Way I Am

Everywhere I look I see disease
Seems like the world was taken from me
Time seems to be tick tick ticking away
Forgive me for all, all the things I say

Will you leave me there
The way I am
Interpretations of the day
The way I am
Deliverered from the gray

Something makes me want to believe
Nothing in life was given to me
Cannot ever stick to this game
Everyday, everything the same

Time has a way and now I see
What happened to all, all of my dreams
Now and then I feel incomplete
But I won't live my life in defeat




Lazarus

A silent prayer whispered in the darkness
Without witness words descend and die
I can't understand a world so cold and heartless
And still I'm driven to live this lie

Frozen voice singing winter's song
I live through life at the will of the wind
All the while I wonder where right went wrong
Crying out for the end to begin

Set adrift on a sea uncharted
Under a sky with no stars to guide me
A drowning soul is sinking and departed
While the waves of doubt break forever inside me

I'm holding on to what I once believed
Conviction that builds with time
I breathe life into my heart deceived
Now the truth is of my design

When your truth turns to lie
And the pain makes you cry
And the fountains of faith run dry
Take a look at yourself
And what you've sacrificed

When your truth turns to lie
And the pain makes you cry
And the fountains of faith run dry

When your dream starts to die
And the fire inside
Starts to dim the more you fight
Take a look at yourself
And what you've sacrificed




Born Of Anger

Winter's breath feels so cold
Calling chaos from control
Depths of madness to unfold
As my inner demons feed

A battery that's charged inside
Powering my redrum ride
Dr. Jeckyll quickly turns to Hyde
Now there's no blood left to bleed

Born of anger
Blinded by the rage that burns in me
Born of anger
Driving me insane I can't break free

Stare into my lifeless eyes
Feel the flames of hatred rise
Fueled by my accuser's lies
I'm a man without redemption

On broken glass I walk alone
A bed of nails I call my home
Veins of ice and heart of stone
A tribute to aggression

Don't waste your time to understand me
Psychoanalyze and pry just so you can brand me
I am the child of hope that has died
Twisting and turning with venom inside
From this world I am freed only then you will see
The monster you have made...
Of me

Solitude becomes my song
Silence slowly screams along
The choir's chorus heard so strong
The symphony begins

An impulse sent straight to my brain
One false move against my grain
Violence erupts again
The madness always wins
