Polysyllabic – Lyrics

IN THE BEGINNING…

– Instrumental –

… A NEW BEGINNING

Rise and fall in one day
I hope it’s worth the try
Coldness wrapped around me
I share no cry
But it won’t make a difference
Cause there’s no second chance
I’m looking for the answers
If there’s a chance to understand

Wash now the blame off my hands…

No more lies
I can look straight into the sun
Thinking, will I ever dream of what I’ve seen?
No turning back
Too many crossings in this labyrinth
In the beginning the end seems away

Time stands still by timing
Life dealers threw the dice
I hear their voices screaming
“It’s time you realize”
So, on and on I wander
Repenting all my life
I have unanswered questions
Is it just me the last in line?

Wash now the blame off my hands
Stepping on castles of sand

No more lies
I can look straight into the sun
Thinking, will I ever dream of what I’ve seen?
No turning back
Too many crossings in this labyrinth
In the beginning the end seems away

For all the fights I did not fight
For all my wasted nights
And all unseen sun-lights
A view without a sight
I’m burning out this page
The book of all my rage
I swear to God I’ll change
Even though it seems so strange

In the beginning…
In the beginning…
In the beginning…
A new beginning

BLEAK

In my bleak momentum, feel my sore
Could I invade a better world?
Raving skull, berserk demolished harm
I wish I could dictate a better word?

Ordering death for my pleasure won’t save me

No one to defend, identities blend
I’m responsible, I’m making people die
Controlling your lives, anxiety now hives
I will raise you just to watch you people die

My unholy contract is my means
To sympathize and then to terminate
Healer, killer, beg to differ leaver
Cunning planner of pro-hate

Ordering death for my pleasure won’t save me

No one to defend, identities blend
I’m responsible, I’m making people die
Controlling your lives, anxiety now hives
I will raise you just to watch you people die

Ordering death for my pleasure won’t save me
Practicing death for my pleasure will save me

No one to defend, identities blend
I’m responsible, I’m making people die
Awarding my hell, I am sane, farewell
We will never, ever, never meet again

DREAMSHADE

“Tener sonus, parva lux, tres angeli calicem sacram portant. Pedibus duplicatis, vestibus induti albis, pennis somni natant. Manu angeli fericta, haec mortalia arma meum corpus protegentia, illud onus, illa facies, tale pectus oculigue, omnia tacta sunt et in aerem excellentem se transformant. Itaque ego per deversoria aut atria, per rustica tecta, per pontes et vada, per lucos et terras septas transeo. Τotus armatus in equo vectus, negligens quidquid accidat, dum sacram calicem inveniam.”

Temple filled with sorrow
Hours seem so hollow
Trails of dreams I follow
Is this right?
Tales so long forgotten
Thoughts that come more often
Doors are widely open
Holy sign, holy crime, bloodline…

Time flies so quickly
I’m inside that deeply
No more grains of sand
A toy in master’s hand
Seeking for the answer
This quest became my cancer
Is this right or wrong?
The side I feel that I belong

Ages erased
Clocks tick their time
No more to see now
Except from my dark criminal mind

Dreamshade
Path of light or darkness
Prepare
The battle just begun to steal the light
Shame
A choice for hope or sadness
I know it’s myself I still fight

Thoughts inside I’m hiding
Conspiracy in mind
Straight to the conclusion
A theater of delusion
Tomorrow or today
Can’t see what price I’ll pay
The answer is so near
Is this my holy darkest fear?

A shot from a gun
My body just fell
Nothing to feel, yet
I’m trapped in between… heaven and hell

Dreamshade
Path of light or darkness
Prepare
The battle just begun to steal the light
Shame
A choice for hope or sadness
I know it’s myself I still fight

“A gentle sound, an awful light
Three angels bear the holy Grail
With folded feet, in stoles of white
On sleeping wings they sail

And, stricken by an angel’s hand
This mortal armor that I wear
This weight and size, this heart and eyes
Are touched, are turned to finest air

So pass I hostel, hall and grange
By bridge and ford, by park and pale
All armed I ride, whate’er betide
Until I find the holy Grail”

Dreamshade
Path of light or darkness
Prepare
The battle just begun to steal the light
Shame
A choice for hope or sadness
I know it’s myself I still fight

See the angels, see the demons
Fighting for my soul
Break the silence, see the reasons
Quest is over, that’s my way back… home

ODD-Y-SEA

“Straightway she cast into the wine of which they were drinking a drug to quiet all pain and strife, and bring forgetfulness of every ill.” (Odyssey, Book 4, v. 219–221)

In disgrace I stand, bloody suitor’s hand
The usurpers rig, a memorial deed
Stretch the bow again, arrows fly again
Through the axes burn, through the sword condemn

She fooled us all; she said we’d wait, our egos bleed
Then chaos was brought in, like father, like son, anger and seed

Pain; feel no pain
No more strife
Fake bliss cuts me like a knife
Pain; no more pain
Sorrow’s end
It’s my honor I defend

War and voyage sane, twenty years of bane
Hostile winds ahead, one-eyed horror head
Many brave men fell, providential knell
Bloody doom at sea, only gloom I see

The Sirens song, the man who listened, yet survived
Two thousand days, five hundred more, oblivion, death was denied

Pain; feel no pain
No more strife
Fake bliss cuts me like a knife
Pain; no more pain
Sorrow’s end
It’s my honor I defend

One day he woke, he stared, he swore, unite and gain
Arrived alone, he beat us all, resourceful king, mighty again

Pain; feel no pain
– Overjoyed, senses’ leaven
– Illness gone, liquid heaven
No more strife
– Soothing grief, sweet abduction
Fake bliss cuts me like a knife
– Nepenthe
Pain; no more pain
– Overjoyed, senses’ leaven
– Illness gone, liquid heaven
Sorrow’s end
– Soothing grief, sweet abduction
It’s my honor I defend
– Nepenthe

INSANGEL

Laughter fresh, youth at large, entering life
Feel the squeeze, breathe thin air, taste the strife
Deceiving walls, begotten screams, laments unknown
The cloven hoof behind the guilt, innocent pawn

Fever, shiver, tension flies
Break the walls, admit the lies
Raise and perish all your tears of ice
Fever, shiver, tension flies
Stare the walls, believe the lies
Raise and perish your entire manic prize

Insangel… Insangel… Insangel…

Mirror, mirror, but no wall; inner demon
Human clay, godless mercy, death is gone
Lobotomized, spite the spike, the punished unheard
Traumatized, source of sadness, the absurd

Fever, shiver, tension flies
Break the walls, admit the lies
Raise and perish all your tears of ice
Fever, shiver, tension flies
Stare the walls, believe the lies
Raise and perish your entire manic prize

Fever, shiver, tension flies
Break the walls, admit the lies
Raise and perish all your tears of ice
Fever, shiver, tension flies
Stare the walls, believe the lies
Raise and perish your entire manic…

Fever, shiver, tension flies
Break the walls, admit the lies
Raise and perish all your tears of ice
Fever, shiver, tension flies
Stare the walls, believe the lies
Raise and perish your entire manic prize

An insangel

POLYSYLLABIC THOUGHTS

“I hear the clock ticking but I cannot feel time. The walls of this white room surround me; yet they make me feel so wonderful. The walls are cold and unreal to my other senses, for my eyes cannot see. Thoughts hit my mind so fast; there’s nothing left here for me. Delusions… A woman in white disappears in the dark. As the needle hits my vain with its spark, I feel fine… I feel… I…”

Watch the ceiling fall
Falling down on me
Feel the pain inside my head
Sometimes I can hear only
Screams out in the dark, screams inside of me
The nightmares of my childhood set me free

Strange woman in white
Holding needles in her hand
Pain is now much stronger
I’m under her command
I cry every night as the light fades away
Oh, what have I done and what price should I pay?

Innocence is my sinful excuse
Paid all dues in clock ticking abuse
Est a levis regnum
Cold asylum of gloom

Innocence is my sinful excuse
Paid all dues in clock ticking abuse
Est a levis regnum
Cold asylum of gloom

Drive me mad, drive me insane
Things I hide inside my brain
Stoned by drugs, I feel no pain
I need her…
After all those needle shots
My polysyllabic thoughts
Wiped away my mind, I’m lost
I feel her…
All alone, on my own, now my lady has gone
Night has come to steal the colors of the dawn
Will I see another dawn?

Wasted I stand, I can do no mistakes
For the time has arrived
And the door left unlocked
Maybe tomorrow’s not far from my dreaming
Yet, there’s no end in my thoughts
Now I’m gone

In scenes of my past, my future I see
As lights disappear, I can’t find what’s unreal
Just a flash of a hard blazing lightning conceals
The truth and the lies, all the things I could be

Innocence is my sinful excuse
Paid all dues in clock ticking abuse
Est a levis regnum
Cold asylum of gloom
Est a levis regnum

LAST FALLEN ANGEL

All my life I am wandering
Like an echo in the sky
Hear my name…

I’m the storm that makes you freeze
A dark figure in the breeze
In the sky the flaming star
Always me the trembling light
I am He, the one you fight
I’m inside but yet so far… yet so far

Why?
Just tell me why, but don’t tell me lies
Why?
You call my name, but curse my fame

Heaven for the sinners, still hell awaits
An offer from believers, a soul to sell
Your last fallen angel

All your life into darkness
Like a wolf in masquerade
Lusting pain…

No more strength to carry on
You can pray but faith is gone
Your reflection fades away
Blinded in your life from hate
Fate has come, now it’s too late
You’re an idol left astray, you are my prey

Why?
Just tell me why, but don’t tell me lies
Why?
You call my name, but curse my fame

Heaven for the sinners, still hell awaits
An offer from believers, a soul to sell
Your last fallen an-hell

Throwing away your future, knowing that it won’t last
Tearing apart your present, existing in the past
Seeing without a vision, believing only lies
Screaming without a reason, balancing on thin ice
You think you will survive; what if you’re not alive?

Why?
Just tell me why, but don’t tell me lies
Why?
You call my name, but curse my fame

Heaven for the sinners, still hell awaits
An offer from believers, a soul to sell
Your last fallen angel

THE EYES OF HADES

“We were born in a world of illusions, supported by technical environmental systems, far away from our home, our own planet Earth. We grew up enforced by artificial knowledge that made us powerful and productive but kept us away from our community. We all became unsocial human beings without heritage, without future. No one now remembers our dark past and those who remember are afraid to talk about it. Except him, the one who passed through iron and fire. The man who survived from the society breakdown. The leader of our war against the technological brutality, against the machines. For those days… Lest we forget.”

Times are changing, do you feel the same?
Can you stand up straight and fight off this reign?
They are holding down our fortune, our land
Chased and whacked us all, hear their command

This conflict goes on (Goes on and on)
For born and unborn (Survive through the storm)
A mission for one (Seek for the one)
Now can this be done?

Seasons lost and seasons fade away
Man of scriptures came on the 7th day
Unbowed spirit, leader for all mankind
He’s the chosen one, the guide for the blind

Eyes of Hades, frozen tears, grief and sorrow
Blackened day, burning flesh, bleeding sun
Steamy walls, acid rain, no tomorrow
Metal heartbeats, now is this your son?
The future’s not set, the war has began

Feckless era, dark insanity
Artificial life, no humanity
Sweep your bloodied brow and follow the trail
It’s your legacy, there’s no chance to fail

This conflict goes on (Goes on and on)
For born and unborn (Survive through the storm)
A mission for one (Seek for the one)
Now can this be done?

Eyes of Hades, frozen tears, grief and sorrow
Blackened day, burning flesh, bleeding sun
Steamy walls, acid rain, no tomorrow
Metal heartbeats, now is this your son?

Eyes of Hades, frozen tears, grief and sorrow
Blackened day, burning flesh, bleeding sun
Steamy walls, acid rain, no tomorrow
Metal heartbeats, now is this your son?
The future’s not set, the war has began

SOLITARY NOMAD

Inside the reign of my terror
Where nothing grows old
Frozen eyes staring me from inside
This tale of death and cold

I think I’ve seen this place
Captain, I’m still in place

God… forgive me
Help me God
Father… don’t leave me

Save your son
Save me from sadness
Your only son
Don’t tell that my mother… no

Am I back, am I still there?
Yet the air feels so cold
Another dream in madness disguised
Or secrets that unfold?

I’ve missed my home and place
Oh, how I miss her, I miss her pretty face

My dark reflections of punishment and death
Watching people suffering, holding out their breath
So many ways for all to live, so many ways to die
Father, can you hear my cry?

Dreams for all that I can’t see
Dreams for all I’ll never be
Sick and tired of feeling sad
Just a solitary nomad

God… forgive me
Help me God
Father… don’t leave me

Save your son
Save me from madness
Your only son
Leave me to die

My dark reflections of punishment and death
Watching people suffering, holding out their breath
So many ways for all to live, so many ways to die
Father can you hear my cry?

Can you hear me?
Can you save me?
Take away this hell I’m living
Have to be strong
This is so wrong
Turn the power off, believing…

I’m living on
(I’m dreaming… I’m dreaming…)
Keep living on
(I’m dreaming… I’m dreaming…)
Still living on
(I’m dreaming… I’m dreaming…)
Living on
(I’m dreaming… I’m dreaming…)
I’m dreaming

ONE SAD MOMENT OF EXISTENCE

Welcome to my control, imaginations toll
Forever locked within my fears
Can you adapt to death and take your final breath?
No need to trade these hollow years

Inside this prison cell, in solitude
I think I’ve never seen this place… it’s hell
Is this what I deserve?
I’m still a child alone, from grace… I fell

Step away from darkness
Getting back into the light, no exit sight
One moment of existence
Sad moment comes this fatal day, it comes my way

You’re falling in between, another mortal sin
Will cast your empty life so well
Tormented for a life, it cuts me deep inside
Can’t stand the sounding of the bell

In darkness and decay I’m left alone
Prophets and poets wrote my wrong… so long
Under the light of day
The walls drift over me, I pray… today

Step away from darkness
Getting back into the light, no exit sight
One moment of existence
Sad moment comes this fatal day, it comes my way

Step away from darkness
Dreams I see in black and white, come to the light
My demons breathe inside me
On a bed of thorns I lay, day after day

Step away from darkness
Getting back into the light, no exit sight
One moment of existence
Sad moment comes this fatal day, it comes my way

It’s time to pray

SYSTEM’S DECAY

12:01 – the new order will rise
Devastation, de-progress, demise
Dusk for dawn and a fiend for a friend
Numb – errs, numbers, devour a blood red trend

System blocked, system locked, switches down
Fail and fall, proclamation unknown
We did fight, we did right, we believed
Proudly lost, then we learnt we had never lived

Huge devastation – The end of our days

Castles made by sand
Freedom to ban, dreams and hopes left undone
Greedy or frugal? Decide
Lustful or pure; which part are we going to hide?

Turn the system on, will to succeed
Will decay let it go; our will, will bleed
It’s so crowded, you feel so alone
Signs of times are the knives that will cut you all

Huge devastation – A life to forsake

Castles made by sand
Freedom to ban, dreams and hopes left undone
Greedy or frugal? Decide
Lustful or pure; which part are we going to hide?

Our blue-led sparkle “blain manso”
To the end we will fight, to the end we will die, to the end
My blue-led sparkle “blain manso”
To the end I will fight, to the end I will lie, to my end

Huge devastation – A dance with the dead

Castles made by sand
Freedom to ban, dreams and hopes left undone
Greedy or frugal? Decide
Lustful or pure; which part do we hide?

Our lives, (lives), lives we betray, watching the system’s decay
We die, (die), die in this place
Locked in this fortress we made, when we lost our trace

SWAN SONG

Here I am, once again alone
Sitting in a vicious darkened throne
This is not what I was meant to do
Watch me now, can you see me through?

In my heart, loneliness, some sinister dreams
What reality hides in some scenes?
Watch the world die today, a part of me feels
Like it’s drifting away, from my sins

Shadows creeping outside
In shallow rotten crops
Years gone by, left behind
Dry-lander, no raindrops

The sky is getting dark
Sometimes it feels so cold
It’s time to think the chances
The earth is growing old

Fly in the sky, hearing a swan cry
-The whole mankind in demise-
Singing the song for the last time
Fall to the ground, making no sound
-The evil strikes in disguise-
Grace overtook all the rage and the lies

Skies are flaming – seas of death
Air pollution – evil breath
Reckless moments – empty mind
Time has passed for all mankind

Forests burning – seas destroyed
Dying nature – hollow void
Change of season – wind of change
God’s creating something strange

Another breaking dawn
Mind is building war
Take the chance and wonder
Is this worth fighting for?

Feeling like a toy
On a dreadful string
Others may command you
Are you a human being?

No tomorrow, only sorrow
Days so hollow, will we make it through?

Pain – Reign – Disclosure
Kill – Steal – Forsake
Sane – Brain – Exposure
Feel – Weel – Betake

If I could choose, If I had torn a bore
My heart and soul anon wither no more

Fly in the sky, hearing a swan cry
-The whole mankind in demise-
Singing the song for the last time
Fall to the ground, making no sound
-The evil strikes in disguise-
Grace overtook all the rage and the lies

Fly in the sky, hearing a swan cry
-The whole mankind in demise-
Singing the song for the last time
Fall to the ground, making no sound
-The evil strikes in disguise-
Grace overtook all the rage and the cries

Fly in the sky

THE STORY

– Hidden CD Track –

Tales of wisdom always told but never heard
Face another end, of another today
Fame and fortune always gained but never shared
Trace another end, of another wrong way

Tears of ice, eyes of grief
Broken wings, broken dreams
Fearful life, lost belief
Empty walls, no one’s here to hear your screams

It’s the story that was never meant to end
You define your fate; a master or a slave?
Hold your head up high, you have some years to spend
One day down, some years to go, you got a life to save

Tales of wisdom always heard but never told
Life becomes perplexed and evil goods occurred
Wrath will cause a schism, wrath shall front the bold
Death becomes your life, a story still unheard

Tears of ice, eyes of grief
Broken wings, broken dreams
Fearful life, lost belief
Empty walls, no one’s here to hear your screams

It’s the story that was never meant to end
You define your fate; a master or a slave?
Hold your head up high, you have some years to spend
One day down, some years to go, you got a life to save

It’s the story that was never meant to end
You define your fate; a master or a slave?
Hold your head up high, you have some years to spend
One day down, some years to go, you got a life to save, now

Never meant to end
