As Bright As a Thousand Suns tracks

Lyrics


1. SOMNOLENCE

(Instrumental)




2. AS THE END DRAWS NEAR

It's so hard to believe, that is the end
The end of our journey
But I think it's time to move on
We need something that wakes us up
Something that makes us whole
So it's time to close the door, and leave all behind

Looking back is like staring into the sun
Our paths might cross, but not for long

It's so painful that the fire is almost gone
That we're gasping for air
And we've done this for too long
Perhaps we need to get rid of this weight for a while
Then we might remember how the glow used to feel

Looking back is like staring into the sun
Our paths might cross, but not for long




3. INCEPTUS

(Instrumental)




4. MEDEA

If you were treasured many hopes
Tender pledging of days in grace
Bliss and dream interwined as one
Joy such as all lovers might envy

Those thoughts are mine no more
For now I am empty; bereft of you
I must endure this solitude
And nevermore behold your face

I did not seek to wring your heart
The same act surely wrung my own
I had to brace me to the deed
Hence filled my heart with wickedness




5. LEAVE ME BE

Where did the lust for life go?
You have always had it with you
You always held it so close to your heart
Did you lose it somewhere on your way?
You always showed us how it worked with
your smiling face and glimmering eyes
Now there is just a shell left of you and a voice that calls
Leave me be!

Where did the lust for life go?
You have always had it with you
You always held it so close to your heart
Did you lose it somewhere on your way?
- I will never, leave you be!




6. INFINITY

(Instrumental)




7. IN MEMORIAM

The memory of a long life
The aching of a love one
The reminiscence of what's been
The feeling of hurting
In Sadness
In Memoriam

The recall of compassion
The longing of your warm embrace
The fear of being left alone
The feeling of sorrow
In sadness
In memoriam

The remembrance of a dark time
The emotions of profound grief
The fear of falling down to deep
The feeling of mourning
In sadness
In memoriam




8. THE FADING SHADOW

We're all swept away by the winds
And by the floods of greed

We're all being crushed by the storms
And the waves of indifference

We're all being shattered
And punished by the powers of opportunism

Soon their powers are gone
Their shadow will fade away




9. AS BRIGHT AS A THOUSAND SUNS

As I sink slowly
Down to the bottom of the sea of despair
There you are, as I sink
As bright as a thousand suns

I'm devoured in this darkness
With my own thoughts as company
Left without hope
I close my eyes and await the blow




10. VINTER

(Instrumental)
