Poets of the Fall | Dream | Lie

Dreaming Wide Awake Too late, the melody is over The joke seems to be on me cos I'm the one not

laughing Down here on the floor Deflate, the mystery of living In the most heartless fashion I could ever Imagine No pretense of decor Another place and time, without a great divide And we could be flying deadly high I'll sell my soul to dream you wide awake Another place and time, without a warning sign And we could be dying angel style I'll sell my soul to dream you wide awake I'll dream you... wide awake With me, disaster finds a playfield Love seems to draw dark, twisted pleasure tearing at me Cos I can't let you go Mercy, like water in a desert Shine through my memory like jewelry in the sun Where are you now Another place and time... I'll dream you... wide awake It's like I'm racing to the sun, blindly face the blazing gun Cos I'm afraid I will be left here without you Like I'm racing not to run, give more when I have none Cos I'm afraid I will be left here without you... wide awake Another place and time... I'll dream you... wide awake.

War Do you remember standing on a broken field White crippled wings beating the sky The harbingers of war with their nature revealed And our chances flowing by If I can let the memory heal I will remember you with me on that field When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me a reason to try Turn the page I need to see something new For now my innocence is torn We cannot linger on this stunted view Like rabid dogs of war I will let the memory heal I will remember you with me on that field When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline And we fought to believe the impossible When I thought that I fought this war alone We were one with our destinies entwined When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me the reason why With no-one wearing their real face It's a whiteout of emotion And I've only got my brittle bones to break the fall When the love in letters fade It's like moving in slow motion And we're already too late if we arrive at all And then we're caught up in the arms race An involuntary addiction And we're shedding every value our mothers taught So will you please show me your real face Draw the line in the horizon Cos I only need your name to call the reasons why I fought When I thought that I fought this war alone...

Change You say you feel a chill in the season Like something is falling apart You say you can't hold it together much longer And I should look after your heart But I feel a change coming on Rolling out of the blue like a storm And it's bending your will like a willow tree twisting Trying to regain its form How does it make you feel When you remember the times the two us lay here In the arms of the world on the doorstep of heaven shining down Do you feel a change coming on, Rolling out of the blue like a storm, And it's throwing your dollhouse world in disarray So you can rebuild or conform How I wish you'd only see How your own choices make your dream Come out shining true before it can leave you I wish that you could see How your own choices make your dream Come out shining true all around you My worth is the look in your eyes My prize the smile playing tricks on your lips and I wonder again Do you ever dream of the world like I do I too fear the change coming on Rolling out of the blue like a storm Can you hear it scream at the hurt that I knew How I wish you'd only see... What is this chill at my heel That makes the protections I've built around my pseudo world premiere Tearing my utopian fiction apart as it happens to just pass along I feel a change coming on Rolling out of the blue like a storm Crashing against my delirious thoughts where humanity's waiting alone How I wish you'd only see...

15 Min Flame The reaper's kneeling at your field taking in what you've sown Can't help feeling apprehension No point in waiting, for a rating for what you have grown Look for liquid consolation If I act accordingly will it save my humanity You're either you or a loyalty disowned Well excuse me Who was it who wanted every sec of the fifteen minute flame of fame A name to last for all eternity Who was it who wanted ingratiation beyond definitions When love alone is enough to set you free No escaping though you're running, you cannot find home Drowning in your desperation Conviction seems to follow accusations alone No place here for an easy redemption If I lack your tears of joy, please forgive my heartless ploy Said the fool to his majesty dethroned Now excuse me Who was it who wanted every sec of the fifteen minute flame To name a love to last through all your infamy Who was it who wanted ingratiation in their definitions When name alone can jail eternally Who was it who wanted every sec of the flame Who was it who wanted every sec of the fifteen minute flame of fame A name to last for all eternity Who was it who wanted ingratiation beyond definitions When love alone is enough to set you free

Fall like a leaf in the wind. Before I'll go hear me out Cos of this there ain't no doubt When it's time for curtain call Just before the shadows........ ... Fall like a leaf in the wind.Given and Denied Which way to the fountain of my youth I wonder Which way to the years I've let go by Let a thirsty man drink in its memories while the water still flows sweet and crystal clear For yesteryear Oh to see the sun's eclipse on the horizon like ships sailing way away from here Oh just one more time my dear Before I'll go hear me out Cos of this there ain't no doubt When it's time for curtain call Just before the shadows. Fall like a leaf in the wind on the ocean Of blue like your eyes in the twilight theater With symphonies playing in the world without sound We're given and denied Give me back my innocence cos I wish to dream again Like I never outgrew my old playground Where the sun sets slowly with a golden crown and the leaves sing lullabies 'round vacant swings Give me those wings Let me fly once again Like I did way back when I would gamble and win To lift me high above the din Of the future we see Does it hold something for me I'm weightless again Just before the shadows..

. now Do we even know who we are Living like all life is forfeit Like we can just go redefine it Regardless what we broke Who died and made us stars With our intellectual gambits Our millionaire flair and our antics We're like mirrors seen through smoke I tried a shanty with the fool to find my pace Anything from puns to jests to intertwine our ways But there was no loyalty to hope And funny the need for mercy How it makes us bleed all mercy.... Now the melody's void of sympathy cos that shit's in byte size bits on YouTube so tell me what am I supposed to do When the malady's no remedy Till we reach the lowest absolute And necessity will finally force something through what's walling you Do we even know who we are. now Do we even know who we are.Smoke and Mirrors I danced a tango with my hubris high on youth We swept across the dance floor to subjective truth But there was no harmony there No reason for coexistence Nothing to span the distance. .

Here and now. it's like the sky. cos the show is on right. the choice is yours. they yearn. so they'll let you drown And there is no why. so take a bow.

isn't this a bit drastic My smiles are turning to plastic Mirror mirror on the wall What's the secret for staying droll You know it isn't particularly funny Killjoy walks in just when it's turning sunny Killjoy lives like it's all about the money All about the money. her rule now overthrown Packed her teddybear. cos I'm not sure What I really wanted. so as not to go alone Left me with my pride to live beneath a stone For how could an amputee ever pick a bone So tell me something. all about the money All about the money. keep it coming Cos I want more. entertain me now All I want is more. cos I like it Too good to let it go. so naturally I want more What I paid for. so I guess she's pretty far gone Left me with my greed. she done left our home On her rollerskates.More Yeah decency. so all I want is more Yeah modesty. to answer for my own For how could a deadened sense tell right from wrong So thanks for nothing I ain't feeling the magic Kinda comic how I got tragic Mirror mirror on the wall What do you give someone who has it all More. just to be sure I got what I wanted. all about the money .

King of Fools I worry that I can't give you what you need That you'll find nothing underneath the peel That I can't undo the times we disagreed That I can't ignore the way I feel Cos what I feel is the only truth I know And I get by on this naivete of youth If what I feel is the only truth And what I give out will make up what I'll receive Can I leave behind my naivete of youth?

Build us up again and make us last Cos what I feel is the only truth for me And I get by on this naivete of youth If what I feel is the only truth And what I give out will make up what I'll receive Can I still leave behind my naivete of youth? Will I be crucified for wanting to believe? I believe And if we don't worry about a thing Will we be sorry when the rain is falling again And what does it matter If fortune should favor It's never the final amen If what I feel is the only truth And what I give out will make up what I'll receive Can I still leave behind my naivete of youth?

.Someone Special I wake up to the sound of rain upon my sill Pick up the pieces of my yesterday old thrill Can I deliver this used up shiver To how I pronounce my life And leave it up to faith to go by its own will Back row to the left A little to the side Slightly out of place Look beyond the light Where you'd least expect There's someone special A foggy morning greets me quietly today I smell a fragrance in the wind blowing my way And ever further I run to find her I yearn to define my life Placing my faith in chance to meet me in half way Back row to the left A little to the side Slightly out of place Look beyond the light Where you'd least expect There's someone special And she's here to write her name On my skin with kisses in the rain Hold my head and ease my pain In a world that's gone insane...

I hardly care at all What's going on fails to concern me.
