What Lies Beneath tracks

Lyrics

1. ANTEROOM OF DEATH (FT. VAN CANTO)

Two faced drama rebellion
Are you the joker, king or queen?
Place your cards as they’re coming
Came to win, lost everything

Gambling riders pull the strings
Pull them tighter, let them in

[Chorus:]
Come and play another day
Thro w your mask away
I don’t care what you say
‘Cause your lovely words decay
Come and play another day
Welcome to the anteroom of death

Hide your conspiracies so
Who’s got the keys and who has not?
Sell your fortune to me ‘cause
I can still read behind all that

Burn your fingers, trade a dream
Watch the clock as it’s ticking

[Chorus]

Blinded in the dark
I’m touching the scars of tainted hearts
If you’re searching, learn to see
Honesty is all you need
Take a bow, finally

[Chorus] (x3)




2. UNTIL MY LAST BREATH

Cannot cry it loud enough
I'm giving up this ghost
How can I still justify
When you deny my voice
In this nothing I'm not allowed
I just follow alone
Words as weapons without a sound
Echoes dying unborn

[Chorus:]
Until my last breath
You'll never know
Until you feel the silence
When I am gone
Now it's vanishing
Everything
What we might have been
Only now your prays call my name
But you won't see again

Who can change this memory?

Inside it needs to burn
Worship by the enemy
The guilty take their turns
Watching as it's disappearing
Shadows all that remain
Wishes slowly crossing over
In this parade of pain

[Chorus]




3. I FEEL IMMORTAL

Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

[Chorus:]
I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no more death to fear
In my dreams

[Chorus]

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

[Chorus]




4. IN FOR A KILL

Where do you go from here?
It's dragging you under
Nothing could be more clear
When you are the hunter
Is that a dream to die for?
A prize

[Chorus:]
You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill

You and your twisted minds
It's making us shiver
How can we be so blind
The fear you deliver
It's all a grand illusion
A trick

[Chorus]

It's all a grand illusion
A trick
You keep it
Out of the light
Nothing can shine
Left in the dark
Far from their eyes
Under black water
There is no halo
Only the hunger
And you're in for a kill




5. UNDERNEATH

Even in my darkest times
Overcome with worry
Find the comfort in the storm
No reason to be sorry
Look inside for a place to hide
All around the faithless wait full of expectations
They will never see the beauty in the imperfections
The more I show
The less they know

[Chorus:]
Out of reach
Underneath
Learned to breath
Underneath
Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile
Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath

Every little cut runs deep
Masked in my tomorrow
Bringing wisdom that I need for all the time I borrow
My other side is left behind

[Chorus]

Something inside of me
Invisible turning the fragile Unbreakable
But they cannot take away
They cannot take away
What I believe
You cannot take away
Cannot take away
What's underneath




6. LITTLE LIES

Take my faith with an open hand and warm embrace
My confidant
Use my words
Take the good away and leave the worst to sell me out

[Chorus:]
Little lies
Little lies
Making up tragedies
Nothing is as it seems
Who cares what is real
Little lies
Little lies
Only to entertain
The message is the same for those who believe

Feed the flames Empty wishes with no room to blame
My sacrifice
Deep inside
There is nothing left to stand behind
But

[Chorus]

Little Lies
Little lies

[Chorus]




7. RIVERS OF LUST

Violent hands come at midnight
Hold me down
I can't make a sound
In their arms
Still unwanted
Crave the child
Be forever wiled

Stranger, danger
Release me

[Chorus:]
Mercy's hiding
It let me go
Hurts to know
Mercy's watching
Watching me drowning
In rivers of lust

Morning sun
Break the shelter
Turn back time
Wash away my crime

Betrayer, slayer
Release me

[Chorus] (x2)

Found at noon
Clutching still the stone




8. DARK STAR (FT. PHIL LABONTE)

Burning out in the distance you're falling
Starting to fade
Light is condemned to be tied down
By gravity close to the end
Do you still remember?
Before the weight that pulled you under
Dared you to rise

[Chorus:]
Where are you now?
Are you proud of the life you wasted?
Wearing the crown of illusion you created
You'll never know what it feels like to shine
You're the master in your own mind
But a slave to all
You are a dark star

Empty
Is never enough
You keep clawing for what you can't reach
Smothering space filled without any grace and
I can't breathe
Nothing lasts forever
Even the stars will loose their luster returning to dust

[Chorus](x3)




9. FALLING AWAKE (FT. JOE SATRIANI)

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defence

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

[Chorus:]
Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

[Chorus]

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

[Chorus](x2)




10. THE ARCHIVE OF LOST DREAMS

Far from the light to reach beneath a veil of mist
Countless stories were left to rest in peace
Darkened and calm
The grave uncared
Once a haven filled with hope
The archive of lost dreams
We send our inner fears for the ocean to score
Waiting it takes them all away from the shore
Deepest beliefs from billions of souls
Longing for our wishes to find a way back home
Aah...Naiad
The last one in the unknown
The keeper of our written dreams
Aah...Promises
None of them were left behind
She blessed them with her kiss
See.
Hear and feel
The miracle of life
Believe the signs and trust you'll stay alive
Descend to find the depth of your heart
Mysterious Naiad
Now the circle's closed forever
Aah...Naiad
The archive is gone
We are on our own




11. CRIMSON DEEP (FT. WILL CALHOUN)

Sometimes I see the pulse
Numb I feel, so unreal
Blood on my lips I taste the heavy lead
What can I find behind the mirror, I'll never know
Who's the reflection within?
Should I frame for you the other world?
Another world?
I've heard the voices of Elysium
The scent of a sudden wish, never there, everywhere
Read me the space in-between

[Chorus:]
Come to me
I cried
I need you
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark
Far beneath my breath
I'm burning
At my core
Show me how
Let me see beyond
I will find
My Crimson Deep

Sharp is the edge of all discovery, now I see
A scar without suffering, impossible
I'll wait until my last day
With no shame
Who's to blame?
Shaping the signs left for me

[Chorus]

Come to me
I cried
I need you
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark
Come to me
I cried
I need you
I am seeking
The gates unfold inside
My lost soul
In the dark
