Isole - Dystopia lyrics



Tracks



01. Beyond The Horizon

A new kind of plague
Spreads across the world
United we march
Towards dystopia

Beyond the horizon
A shadow from the past

Together in silence
Determination from the dark
Leaving scorched earth behind

Beyond the horizon
A shadow from the past

Walking among the blind
Blank eyes gazing straight ahead
There's a child standing out
Like a candle trying to force away the dark

Our legacy will try to drown the light
Anxiously, we wish them well

The eyes of the child
Affecting me
Burning still
With relentless hope
The day when we look back at the horizon at dawn
The blazing sun reflecting in the children´s eyes

Beyond the horizon
A shadow from the past

02. Written In The Sand

Caress my pain
Please take me to your paradise
Where all my dreams are written in the sand

Disclose my sins
Please save me from this desolate place
Where all I feel is cold and numb

Hopes and dreams are written in the sand
In a cold desert full of storms
Hopes and dreams are built by sand
In a desert full of storms

So deep inside
I hide my fears and fragile dreams
I am worn down by apathy

Escape is near
I won't look back ever again
Disguised I leave this tainted world

Hopes and dreams are written in the sand
In a cold desert full of storms
Hopes and dreams are built by sand
In a desert full of storms

03. The Beholder

I awoke in my shadow
A vast world made of dust
My eyes paralyzed
I slip into my dreamless state

A slow and vague sensation
Of years that passes by
The hazy light that fades
Escape into my darkness

A wish to dream
Give me a sign
Will I be blind
Heal my eyes

I embrace my deep despair
Deep inside myself I hide
Silence screaming in my mind
Reality to dust I grind

A wish to dream
Give me a sign
Will I be blind
All my life

Still trapped in my shadow
My body is now petrified
Stale I count the years
That passes by in silence
…in silence

04. You Went Away

The day when grey skies and rain
Suffocated my screams
Falling on my knees
The day you went away

You went away, without sounds, without words
You went away, before I could see you one last time
You went away, left every piece of me behind

The pain I feel will never heal
My yearning grows in vain for you return

You went away, I am stuck in my defeat
You went away, what parts of you still lingers in me

In my heart there is a hole
The pain I feel will never heal
My yearning grows in vain for you return

05. Forged By Fear

Emotional decay
Egoism commence
Static domination
Empathic precipice

The heirs are now too old to rule
A governmental demise
Forged by fear are the cynic rulers
Fed by greed they dig mankind's grave

The tears are lost
And also the morning sun
Words in fire
The bonfire of history

The air is now too thin to breathe
Everything will cease to exist
Forged by fear are the cynic rulers
Fed by greed they dig mankind's grave

Tomorrows world is far too real
The political plague grew too strong
Tomorrows dream will never be
There's no escape, what have we done
Tomorrows world is far too real
Tomorrows dream will never be
The word is silent
The world is dead
Only ruins remains
Only hope was restrained

The heirs are all gone by now
Everything has ceased to exist
Forged by fear were the cynic rulers
Fed by greed they dug mankind's grave

06. Galenskapens Land

Sida vid sida vi följe slår
Min skugga och jag i min mörka vrå
I ljusets låga en skälvande tröst
I senaste timman drömmar kan nås

Mörkret tar mig till en annan plats
En tillflyktsort från allt
Det där jag helst av allt vill glömma bort
En plats där jag kan andas ut

Aldrig igen, vakna upp
Aldrig igen, se mitt förflutna igen

I mångubbens magiska skimrande sken
Jag dansar runt med skuggan hand i hand
Till en melodi av mitt vildaste skratt
Jag beträder nu galenskapens rand

En flyktig dans
I mörker utan sans
Hand i hand
Till galenskapens land

07. Nothingness

Time is a wound that will not heal
Broken, beaten and alone
Obsessed by a thought of what once was
A void is all that's left of me

All I ever wanted was for you to see
...for you to hear, for you to feel
Listen, there's something I want you to know
I can't remember last December that's what you pushed me to

You wrote our names in the home I built
A haunting image of a passion forsaken

"Deep breaths - ignite the flame
Let the water surround you
Drink the liquid - let your head rest
Let it all go where your mind will take you"

I am all I was ever meant to be
I am nothing - king of emptiness
Doomed to be a hollow shell
I am empty - king of nothingness

You lured me back into your warm embrace
Souls intertwined, your touch set me free
Happiness you did not ever seek
Your cold, dead heart knew all along

"Breathe - the water is still
In the candle's flickering light
Lean back - Turn the page
Let the spirit consume you"

I am all I was ever meant to be
I am nothing - king of emptiness
Doomed to be a hollow shell
I am empty - king of nothingness

I close my eyes and drift away
Let her sink into the past
