Angels & Agony · Eternity

Angels & Agony · Eternity

01 · Tao

We're all on our way
to something we don't know,
Can't see, don't comprehend
We're blind to see the mystery
And beauty that lies
Behind all things in life

02 · One

See the road rise before me
Feel the strong wind kiss my face
See the mountains move aside
As I am one of the human race

Feel the wind blow through your hair
On your knees in your despair
Have no trust in darkened minds
See yourself in a blaze of light
We are one, we go on

Come with me to a different world
No need for lies, no need to be
Reach out and follow me
We are one, we go on

Have no fear, we are strong
We're just here where we belong
Don't forsake when you are sore
As you and I can't be ignored

03 · Revelation

I am the night in which you sleep
I am the day in which you wake
I am the shade in which you hide
I tell the stories in your sleep
Whisper the words you cannot find
I am your forsaken mind

I am the light that shines on you
I am the dark you're going through
I am the prince in your dreams
I kiss the kiss you're longing for
And make you land just on your feet
I am the god you always need

04 · Darkness

We knew it would end one day
Never thought it would be that soon
We could talk for days and nights
Always fear it would cross our way

We talked about how life could end
Would anything lie behind
The black door was just ajar
Then you slipped inside

It's been long ago since we talked
It seems like forever
Since you went away
Since you went away

You're my shadow
You're my guardian from darkness
Where ever I will go I know you'll follow
No reluctance and no complaints

Wrapped in silence
I feel you're always near
Every step in life you'll be there
From my cradle to my grave

We knew it did end that day
Never thought it would be that soon
Still we talk for days and nights
Your light shining on my way

When you see what I've become
How I make it through the day
Nobody can comfort me
I still follow your way

You're my shadow
You're my guardian from darkness
Where ever I will go I know you'll follow
No reluctance and no complaints

Wrapped in silence
I feel you're always near
Every step in life you'll be there
From my cradle to my grave

05 · Surrender

You know how long I've waited
For you to come this far
You don't know how long I've waited
To see the stars
You don't know how long I've waited
To see the stars
You don't know how long I've waited
To love you as you are

Open your eyes
Open your heart
Use no disguise
Surrender to me

You don't know I've seen the suns
Rise and fall
Billions of worlds on fire
Between the stars
You don't know about my children
Slain to death
Do you remember their souls
Glowing in the skies?

06 · Don't Be Afraid

We feel alone
No one around
See me
Feel me

All we ever find
Are questions, no answers
Find me
Understand me

We hope for more
Praying and searching
Save me
Please save me

Don't be afraid
Follow us with open eyes
Don't be afraid
We'll guide you through the night

Don't be afraid
Don't deny us, don't forget
Don't be afraid

We cry in silence
No comfort for us
Calm me
Sooth me

We die alone
No one to hold us
Hold me
Warm me

Talking to the wind
We don't listen anymore
Love me
Please love me

07 · Heart & Soul

I play the game by your rules
Because I know you've got the tools
I'm not crying

You watch my steps
My every move
Because you're looking for some proof

From my heart into my soul
I live my days without control
Feelings sometimes draw me back
To when my life was right on track

From my heart into my soul
I live my days without a goal
I wish the end was coming near
And everything would be so clear

Consider your thoughts, so impure
You won't succeed, that's for sure
You stand there lying

You cannot win, don't you see
That you're losing over me?

I feel you near me
So near me

08 · Forever

Born with all you need
And need is all you have
Left out in the dark alone
To see what you're made of

Nobody gives a hand
When you're in deepest pain
Crying both your eyes out
And swallow all your pride

I'm longing for the day
That you return to me again
And see me in the brightest light
That you have ever seen

With my heart open wide
To love you once again
Like I have done before
But you chose to ignore

I'll wait here for evermore
I'll wait here forever and ever more
I'll wait here until you return to me
I'll wait here for evermore

The path to me is winding
But you will always notice
Some presence of me around
When you want to see

There will be a time
That we will never part
For this is my biggest gift to you:
We were never two

09 · Into the Sun

I'm sure we met
But can't remember when
Was it here and now
Or countless ages before

I see the flame
That burns behind your eyes
I smell your scent
In times that are past

I'll fade away
And gaze into the sun
I can't remember
When it all began

Drifting away
Into endless realms of tears
I'll close my eyes again
Will you be here?

Slowly we will sense
Remembrance deep inside
Our lives and our love
Fade into nothing

We will always meet again
Until time stops forever
How can I ever bare
Losing you again?

10 · Promised Land

Beneath the burning sun I stand
Believing all plans were so right
With your warm blood on my hands
Only for my promised land
It seems that all now is in vain
Fighting for this bloody reign
In my heart it doesn't feel right
Now everyone has died

Take me away from all this death
Save me from pain and sure defeat
Clean my face from your spilled blood
Free my soul that screams to you

Heal my heart and hate underneath
Lay my body to rest in peace
Free my soul that screams to you
and wash my hands in innocence

Troops are moving through the land
Gunshots sound and people cry
Calling names and throwing stones
I spit my blood into the sand

No one left to take the blame
Follow orders in this game
Women cry and children die
All for mankind's greatest lie

11 · Eternal Entity

What if I'd suddenly found out
My reason for being
Should I leave all things behind
And reach for something new

What if someone would say to me
Why I couldn't love another
I would surely cry
And blame myself for years

What if everything made sense
A reason for pain and pleasure
How can I ever make up
For all mistakes in life?

I am an eternal entity
Free of choice and thought
No one can ever restrain me
Boundless and free to be
I am an eternal entity

I am an eternal entity
Free of choice and thought
I'm floating on this cosmic energy
This circle of light surrounds me
Like a blanket of stars

Every name, is known to me
Deathless joy, no misery
No one could ever dream
Of a place like this

I am an eternal entity
The light is very known to me
Every life I lived
Brought me higher up here
