Breaking the Surface
(Noly Ricist)

Instrumental Return to topSeparator Bar

As Long as I'm Alive
(Lyrics: breed)

So many roads
So many choices in this life
So many wishes
And this hope that never dies
I never hesitate
I know it can be mine
And if I choose to be
A master of disguise

So many give their life
Without a second doubt
Too many die alone
Don't die without a fight
So many towers
but no wizards ride the skies
I'll take my chances with this ride
As long as I'm alive

So many mean so well
but always do you harm
Too many die in vain
Why some will take up arms
I never hesitate
I know this life is mine
I'll tell you what I need
Without you I'll be fine

Too many grains of sand
and snakes hide in the grass
So many hours
and the walls are made of glass
I never hesitate
Don't care about the prize
I'll take my chances with this ride
As long as I'm alive

And when the night comes down
it makes no difference
And when the night comes down
I stand my ground
as long as I'm alive

If you're still standing now
I guess you've got it made
Out of this camouflage
Out of this old charade
You've built your paradise
I've seen it so I know
Too many lives are lost
and plenty more to go

Don't sell me paradise
I know this heart of stone
Hell-bent on sacrifice
leave me the hell alone
Too many hearts
too many minds, too many doors
Too many questions
and you've heard them all before
Too many broken wheels
revolving ever more
Some never will decide
Some always seek control
I'll take my chances with this ride
As long as I'm alive

Castor SKies
(Lyrics: breed)

In our near distant future
Can you see such a thing?
Like a dreamworld portrayed
filled with such wondrous things
Where the children imagine
by the light of the moon
That the Earth starts to rumble
Lights out too soon

Where are you now?
Living your life under sun-punished ground?
Tilling the land with an ox and a plough?
Tell me I'm dying to know

Reaching out for Castor Skies
We might ever, never die
Be the first ones out alive
Don't you wonder?
What it's like to roam the night
Endless wonder, endless flight
Be the first ones out tonight
Don't you wonder?

So we gather our fortunes
and put Man in machines
And that day is to come
For these thing's I've seen
We're the children imagined
when the sun burns the moon
We're the ones leaving Earth
Not a second too soon

Starlight shadows
paint your face on every wall
Broadcasting dreams to us all

Heartbroken Soul
(Lyrics: breed)

Changing colors as I walk along the street
Just like last fall, I'm here
Can't imagine such a change of scenery
Would make a difference to me

And now I find
It all so strange
and not the way I thought it'd be

Can't deny
this summer is over
Can't you see I've just a
Heart-broken soul to give?
Tell you why
it's already over
I'm just another weary
heart-broken soul

Hand in hand we made our way
across the bridge
Now I'm here all alone
Can't deny the hurt inside
that love is gone
Pretending this choice was my own

Just another broken heart
Just another broken soul
Just another broken heart
In another, just another
In another broken mind

Can't deny
this summer is over
Can't you see I've just a
Heart-broken soul to give?
Tell you why
and over and over
I'm just another weary
heart-broken soul

Find another broken heart
from another broken soul
Why can't you see I've just a
Heart-broken soul to give
To any other broken mind
and any other broken heart
I'm just another, weary,
heart-broken soul

Dying Hearts
(Lyrics: Notur Ban)

Someone else penned these lyrics. Return to topSeparator Bar

You're not Alone
(Lyrics: breed)

There's so much darkness in the world
Don't live in fear of death
He's not our master
No, just remind yourself
your time on Earth is short
It's time for us to truly live

No second round
No heaven found
Except the one
Where we find love

This life is all we get to live
Don't you believe them
There's no god in heaven
No prize awaiting
No award for sacrifice
Still there's a reason to believe
in life like never before

'Cause there's a light
When you give love
It reaches deep inside
and so I'm never alone
When you give love
with all your heart
I give you all I am
and everything I can
You're not alone

Let's make a promise you and I
To never waste this life
To take our chances
Burning bridges
Tearing all defenses down
With open hearts we stand so tall
Never, ever, alone

Mirrorworld
(Lyrics: breed)

Can you tell me
the way this world disappoints you
and I will show you
The scenes behind that wall
And is the fabric they weave for you
Much too frail
or way too dark?
Let me show you there's more
Oh, there's more

Is this all there is?
Have we made the grand last stand?
No more boundaries
No uncharted lands to explore
Has this journey
this grand transition
made hollow what was whole?
Let me show you the door
Oh, there's more

Don't let go!
Don't let go!
I said don't let go
Don't let go!
Now let go!

Lost in a mirrorworld
That's all we ever were
Lost in a mirrorworld
Can't find the door
Let me out!
Lost in a mirrorworld
Don't leave me here
Get me out!
Hear my final words
Lost in a mirrorworld

You let go
I let go
You let go
Any second now
I let go
You let go
We let go
Now let go!

Emotional Blackmail
(Lyrics: breed)

Think you can master a thousand faces?
I know a man who wrote a better line
Think you can tell another lie
And make me think the blame is mine
Well I'm certainly not blameless
And I'm really not a saint
But I'm telling you this time
Just this once
I'm doing this for everyone

I'm doing this for everyone
Lost within themselves
With dreams that won't come true
We catch another rainbow
I'm telling you

I'm doing this for everyone
Doing this for everyone
Oh, for everyone

When your dream is gone
I'll give you mine
Until the end of time
All for everyone

Can you tell
A paradise from hell
When you're running all the time?
Is there a lesson to be learned
From a tyrant overturned
And the mountains that we climb?

I don't have the patience of a saint
I can't forgive a million times and one
So I'll tell you this just once
I'm doing this
I'm doing this for everyone

And now your dream's live
I can't believe it was mine
When every dream's alive
for everyone

I hear the ticking of the clock
Another line by sung by someone else
No matter where you are tonight
Doesn't matter I'll just tell you once
This is for everyone but you

The Life That You Want
(Lyrics: breed)

I said enough is enough
And I don't even know why
You always show up this way
I can't imagine how
You think it's even OK
Just 'cause I try to be nice
Why can't you simply let go?
But you hold on for dear life

Nothing I say will reach you, ever

If love is all you want
love is all you need
and I'm the only one you ever see
I sink like a stone
The life that you want
is not your own

And now you're back here again
You think I'm happy somehow
to wear this smile on my face
It's just how I stay alive
and I'll have you know
It's not for you to decide
It's not a public debate
It's not a test-drive to take
It's not a choice you can make

State of My Despair
(Lyrics: breed)

Trade on your life inside
Buy everlasting lies
Find all you need tonight
then hide inside that electric sky

We want—We need—You'll find

Time enough to circle 'round the sun
Light enough to realize it's gone
When you find there's nothing left to buy
You stand aside, watch life pass by

I realize there's
nothing can't be done
But time that's lost
won't ever come back round
In this moment
I reflect a lifetime shown me
Now I know
the state of my despair

Now I know I'm not afraid to show
I'm breaking down inside
The cracks appear so clearly now
the framework of my life
comes crashing down tonight
It's time you know
the state of my despair

Give up on your dreams and call it love
Well, all I see's a world that's come undone
before too long there's nothing left inside
You stand aside, watch life pass by

Despair under the sun
is everything I've got
I have to change my ways
Now I know what I 've become
I see what I have done
My life was passing by

I realize there's
nothing can be done
'Cause time that's lost
won't ever come back round

I'm not the only one
to find myself all
broken up inside
The whole world is falling and now
the framework of your life
comes crashing down
and now I know you know
the state of my despair

The Unborn Never Die
(Lyrics: breed)

The devil that you know
is the company you keep
Can you tell me who you think you are
and why the devil you never sleep?
Take a look around
there's terror everywhere
Before too long the sun goes down
and night is in my care

The unborn never die

I can taste it in the air
The dark seed has been sown
A taste of immortality
the devil's never known
Climb the golden stairs
You're never going home
Cause when it comes to playing life
you lose it on your own

A child denied forevermore
Resides inside you all
No more deceit
I told you so
Take my hand it's time to go

There's a sadness in my heart
Indemnity
There's the mirror to my soul
Insanity
There's a sea of broken lives
A sea filled up with whys
Humanity

No sadness, no pain
No struggle in vain
All that matters is
They've nothing to lose
No reason to cry
There's nothing to choose
and the unborn never die

This Machine is Broken
(Lyrics: breed)

Another season calls
Another winter falls
No use denying it
We're dying as we speak
I let it get to me
And everywhere I see
There's no way I can deviate
I tumble down my path

And I know—Let it go
But I know—Let it go
And I know I can't escape this
But I push for all I'm worth
And I know—Just let it go
But I know—Just let it go
Can't you tell I need my Mondays
Like a dead man needs the earth?

Every dream I hold
burns down in crimson and gold

This Machine is broken you know
When anything you say or do
Elicit no response
This Machine is broken for sure
The forces set in motion
Prohibit any cure

So we're here again
Sunday evening when
I try denying it
But Monday comes again
If you look inside
Take a second glance
Nothing can alleviate
this feeling that I'm trapped

And I know
Anywhere I go
burns down in crimson and gold

This machine is broken

Hello Moon
(Lyrics: breed)

The night lives, the night moves
And night can leave you hungry
Craving more
And the night can last forever
The night can see, the night can feel
And night can call her children
to her door, like before
And she's waiting for your answer

So wait no more
Take this life I lay before you
And come alone
Let her light embrace you
And come tonight
We come home

Hello moon
I delight in your shadow
I delight in your gloom
I delight in your silence, sweet moon
Hello moon
I delight in your shadow
I delight in your gloom
I delight as you crest, as you wane

Night is swift and night is bold
And life is, oh, so fleeting
You've been told, night is cold
Yet the night might hold the answer

Goodbye My Angel
(Lyrics: Notur Ban)

Irreverence and Pride
(Lyrics: breed)

How many times a day
I struggle with myself
How many times a day
Can I rebuild my private hell?
Is there some peace of mind
To be had when left alone?
How can I leave behind
a state of mind that's in my bones?

When I always stand alone
Unwanted
So out of place

Why even bother?
Why even try?
Irreverence or pride
Tell me why
Why should I bother?
Why should I try?
When all my work gets thrown away
Irreverence and pride
Every day

I can't find sleep at night
but to call a spade a spade
I see myself detained
by every wish I ever made
And in the early light
I let it take control
my abject destiny
as mapped out by my soul
