In Flames

A Sense of Purpose tracks

Lyrics

1. THE MIRROR'S TRUTH

This past to go
While I collapse
It's not a false alarm
The ashes settle in

I guess,
We are the insane as we ignore the mirror's truth

Should I join the feast
Should I acknowledge the leash
The future in captivity
I'm not who I'm supposed to be.

We are not even trying
I let this light explode.

The bleeding
We deceive them
Fuel the lies
The time
Idle reason
We should live by laws
Call the swarm
Fade in another false hope

We are not even trying
Let this light explode.

We are not even trying
Find the exit sign and disappear.

We are not even trying
Let this light explode.

We are not even trying
Find the exit sign and disappear!




2. DISCONNECTED

Look at the dead outside my window
Wonder what's on their mind
Why do they run
They all seem to have a mission
But then they cry themselves to sleep

[Chorus:]
You receive what you give
And this is like nothing
Oh I feel like shit
But at least I feel something

Is this all you meant to be

There are marks in the pavement
You walk this route too many times
What if I changed the signs
Would you even take notice

[Chorus]

Is this all you have to give
Straight jacket you in
These shapes surrender

[Chorus x2]




3. SLEEPLESS AGAIN

Hopeless times approach
Just give into the chaos
Strangely I find comfort here
Impatient and curious of what may come

...And so the rampage begins
Against the headache I can't win

[Chorus:]
Drain Me
Keep me in the dark
I don't want to take part
Prefer to be forever numb

Nothing great can come out of this
But I'm hostage to myself
I fear I might collapse on the razor's edge
And I fear I'll realize when it's too late

...And so the rampage begins
Against the headache I can't win

[Chorus]

Sleepless again

I need to ease my mind
And kill what burns inside

Sleepless again

I can't win

[Chorus]




4. ALIAS

The serpent knows,
When the curtain falls,
In denials blindfold,
It greets another day

Don't believe the mask
It attempts to lie,
The perfect ten,
When reality caves in

Don't tell me,
Tell my ghost,
Cause I blame him
For all I don't want to know

I found secrets about life untold

Life's wrapped in a riddle,
Easier said than done,
Hate to play the victim,
Rather run and hide.

Don't believe the mask
It attempts to lie,
The perfect ten,
When reality caves in

Don't tell me,
Tell my ghost,
Cause I blame him
For all I don't want to know

I found secrets about life untold,
Let them take me far away

Call back in place,
It easier to cope behind the curtain,
Wipe the worries away
No thought about consequence

Don't believe the mask
It attempts to lie,
The perfect ten,
When reality caves in

Don't tell me,
Tell my ghost,
Cause I blame him
For all I don't want to know

I found secrets about life untold,
Let them take me far away




5. I'M THE HIGHWAY

I am my deepest shadow,
Something I can't ever neglect,
Rise above these ashes,
Before they fade away

In dark moments, I know better,
Within destruction, I see clearly

From here to new grounds,
Suppose I will do it alone,
Will fight for that design,
Feel this up your conviction

Staring into truth,
I am, the way,
Existence carefull made,
In all your everlasting complications

In dark moments,I know better
Within destruction, I see clearly

From here to new grounds,
Suppose I will do it alone,
Will fight for that design,
Feel this up your conviction

Forget the promised land,
There was never an invitation,
Today I create my own,
Before there was sorrow and lack of attention

From here to new grounds,
Suppose I will do it alone,
Will fight for that design,
Feel this up your conviction




6. DELIGHT AND ANGERS

Everyday takes figuring out how to live,
Sometimes it feels like a mistake,
Sometimes its a winners parade,
Delight and angers,
I guess thats the way its supposed to be...

Please heal me, I cant sleep
Thought I was unbreakable,but this is killing me
Call me, everything
Make me fell unbreakable, now you set me free

I feel the fear takes hold
Afraid this hell I create is my own
Come my fatigueness, I cant take it anymore
This used to be my own world, but now I've lost control

Please heal me, I cant sleep
Thought I was unbreakable,but this is killing me,
Call me, everything,
Make me fell unbreakable, now you set me free

Chasing leftovers,
Under the fading sun,
Searching for shelter,
I feel my time has come

Please heal me, I cant sleep
Thought I was unbreakable,but this is killing me,
Call me, everything,
Make me fell unbreakable, now you set me free




7. MOVE THROUGH ME

Consume the curse
That brings you down
(A fading liar)
Who wakes up alone

It's there
In front of you

[Chorus:]
Invert this tragedy to come
And reclaim your future
This is a call to arms
One quest at a time

Feed the hunger,
Climb on up
Repress the negative
You are not alone

It's there
In front of you

[Chorus]

Avoid the mould
Desperate you regress
Move through me
I'll be your triumph

[Chorus]




8. THE CHOSEN PESSIMIST

Tell me which side I'm on
Approaching constant failure
Tell me which side I'm on
(Who is friend or foe?)
Approaching constant failure

Between love and hate
Which path to follow?
How can I keep balance in this race?
Come faith, I'm dying (slowly)

In many ways I'm the burden that devides us from the light
In many ways you're the halo that keeps my spirit alive

Temptation
Play the good or evil part
With me, you evoke the dark
Erase the free will and watch me heal

Tell me which side I'm on
Approaching constant failure

Between love and hate
Which path to follow?
How can I keep balance in this race?
Come faith, I'm dying...

Amused by the trials and tribulations
If I survive I fly from here
But as the chosen pessimist

I carve my name in stone
I carve my name in stone

Amused by the trials and tribulations
If I survive I fly from here

How can I keep balance in this race?
Come faith I'm dying...




9. SOBER AND IRRELEVANT

Used to be original,
but now I tremble in fear
I am like everyone else
alabary spell

Is this how it feels
to reach black bottom
want to know how it feels to be forgotten

I become the distance,
I am the sober and irrelevant,
I don't feel but in this,
what is there to believe?

I'm not asking for much
just a moment
a chance to pick up the pieces
happiness please come home

what if it ends right here
how do I change it
Hoping to find a saviour
I lost my way

I become the distance,
I am the sober and irrelevant,
I don't feel but in this,
what is there to believe?

is this how it feels
to reach black bottom
want to know how it feels to be forgotten
hoping to find a saviour

I lost my way

I become the distance,
I am the sober and irrelevant,
I don't feel but in this,
what is there to believe?




10. CONDEMNED

I'm so restless,
These walls drain my thoughts
Rooms with no sun,
I cant find my way out

It used to be my home
These days,far from my comfort zone
The life I live without control
Fear is taking hold

I should cross the line
Confront lives too blind

Hear a distant cry
Would you tell me how
To break the cycle that I'm in
And discover the living

I don't recognise my soul
Condemned to live in this black hole
Deep within time,
They crave warning signs

Hear a distant cry
Would you tell me how
To break the cycle that I'm in
And discover the living

I should cross the line
Confront lives too blind

Hear a distant cry
Would you tell me how
To break the cycle that I'm in
And discover the living

There's a hill to climb
Would you dream if I,
Design the future
And lock the end of time




11. DRENCHED IN FEAR

You wont,
Find a friendly face in the crowd,
It's quite amusing to see,
How you suffer now!

I refuse,to let you steal my delight,
When you awake, but it strengthens my night rage,
I've seen you kill many dreams,
But I've got brand new armour, and my weapons are way ahead of your's.

How does it feel to be demolished,
Fate plunged into thin air,
Strange to feeling to be nothing.

All the words I hear,
They don't mean a thing
All drenched in fear,
Then I let you pray

Make me bother, I dare you,
I've got the strength I need,
But await my darkest moment,
When the guilt doesn't get to me.

All the words I hear,
They don't mean a thing
All drenched in fear,
Then I let you pray




12. MARCH TO THE SHORE

I used to adore you
The lies made sense somehow
Gave myself away without a fight
But betrayal claims its price

At first I was scared
Not used to murders mind
But there was something beautiful
So powerful, definite, so divine

Pushing the faith
Build on our rage

Falling ideals
Broken seals
March to the shore
You are a killer!

Is it something that's always been there?
Was it distant in this cage?
Oh, I'm glad we met
Oh, I'd love to release the rage

But everything has its end
I've done my deed
The final bullet was always meant for me

Pushing the faith
Build on our rage

Falling ideals
Broken seals
March to the shore
You are a killer!

But everything has it's end
I've done my deed
The final bullet was always meant for me

Falling ideals
Broken seals
March to the shore
You are a killer
