The Wicked Symphony
You'll be running out of miracles
Like I'm running out of dreams
Madness lurking into my left
Angels faint in front of me

And I see eyes to the right
I hear a promise resound
Gold and diamonds, love and fame
And music meant to remain

You've been dying for glory
You've been looking for love
Why don't we read the signs
When we're about to get lost

A seeker enthralled by a flame
Eventually home to his pain
The Great Unbeloved
You reach for the final stage

Hey man in your hideaway
Where do we go from here
Heroes in the tragedy
Down-home just a memory
Where do we go
When the world gets in the way

Way down to the hide away
Afflatus divine! Your hands
And a wicked symphony
Hey now to the hideaway
Lock up the rain for a wicked symphony

Don't you give up on your emotions
Don't you abandon your despair
If you deny what you desire
This will have been just a mystery play

There'll be nowhere to go
Just oblivion, we're so close to reach out
Close to fall, make up or break up or crawl

You are striving for beauty
For a song to remain
A final touch and the spirit you have cited
Holds on to the reins

I feel how I'm losing my ground
A dancer enthralled by a sound
The smoke clears away
I'll reach for the final stage

Hey man in your hideaway
Where do we go from here
Heroes in the tragedy
Down-home just a memory
Where do we go
When the world gets in the way

Way down to the hide away, afflatus Divine!
Your hands and a wicked symphony
Hey now to the hideaway
Lock up the rain for a wicked symphony

Oh I can hear it, I can hear it
Oh I can hear it, I, I, I, I...
I can hear it, yeah
I'm dying for a sign

You can turn your face away
Can pretend you don't hear it
How long have you been begging on your knees
And now that you're near it
Won't you be damned if you defy what you're given
Mercury of salvation
The colors for the eyes of the world
We'll be kings for generations

Hey man in your hideaway
Where do we go from here
Heroes in the tragedy
Down-home just a memory
Where do we go
When the world gets in the way

Way down to the hide away
Afflatus divine!
Your hands and a wicked symphony
Hey now to the hideaway
Lock up the rain for a wicked symphony
 
 
Wastelands
A moment of glory
The blink of an eye and it's all gone
You hide in confinement
Dark is the cell that you call home

We pretend to be blind
Everytime it hurts to see

You - you close your eyes
To blink the night away
At ease in the wastelands
You - you're dead and blind
You sanctify the way
Blindfold in the wastelands
Don't tell me in pain
The end doesn't justify the means
Spado, ascetic
It's easy to sermonize in jealousy

Now I'm off to life
I'm changing sides
Your final goodbye

You - you close your eyes
To blink the tears away
Love hurts in the wastelands
You - you're old and blind
You sacrifice it all
Lost in the wastelands
 
 
Scales of Justice
Predetermination, belief
Veracity of incidents
Reconciliation
Between justice and tomorrow
You're innocent

It's only human to just close your eyes
Blinding fury, part of paradise
Heaven justifies

To take your eyes off the drag
Walking to the block
At the scaffold scales held even
Take your eyes off the drag
Walking to the block
Look away, scales held even

You owe the power and your pace
To the brute that's running after you
Humiliation's growing hate
Righteous anger driving you

Cut off the hand
That tries to keep me back
Blinding fury, a piece of paradise
'Cause heaven justifies

To take your eyes off the drag
Walking to the block
At the scaffold scales held even
To take your eyes off the drag
Walking to the block
Look away, scales held even

Just close your eyes, just look away
What you don't want to know
Ain't gonna hurt you
Time passes by, we all die anyway
And no nothing remains
Whatever you say, whatever you do

To take your eyes off the drag
Walking to the block
At the scaffold scales held even
To take your eyes off the drag
Walking to the block
Look away, scales held even
 
 
Dying for an Angel
You're awake in your darkest dream
I have come for you
And nobody can hear you scream
When I reach for you

Don't you remember their feet in your face
Before they have carved you in stone
And don't you remember your sweat and your pain
When you were drawn to the bone
When you were left on all alone

Living on a dream
Dying for an angel
Reach out, waiting for a miracle
No sign of wings, as you turn your back on me

Living on a dream
Lonely cold and dial
Head up, feet down in the fire
Giving till you're gone
Dying for an angel
Everyday

Where do we go from the apogee
What do we leave behind
And How will I stand what I'll have to see
This reflexion of mine
Collateral damage, your sacrifice
Gotta learn to unlearn to fall
Gotta tear down the walls of love and light
You have come on your own
You will go on all alone
 
 
Blizzard on a Broken Mirror
Faces in this empty room
Cited in despair
Gazes that I had invoked
They're driving me insane now
Walls have eyes they're staring down on me
From everywhere around

In the face of dreams I had
Grimaces of pain
Now I am turning helpless
Callous and alone
Waiting for a storm to brew
To wash my dream and love and sins away

I'm with you
I'm the otherside
You just gotta try
Fly now! No one's gonna care
'Cause no one's gonna know
What no one's ever seen

Close your eyes now
Kingdom on the broken mirror
Close your eyes now
Blizzard on the broken mirror
The scent of goodbye
They're dying away: the sands of time
Sands of time

Fortune favors just the brave
That's what the blessed always say
Love will come in time
But I'm always late

I pray the wine my will to take
And those evil hands to tie
Wreaking havoc, baneful sight is growing dim

Tie the dream I've had my fill
Raze the love and tie my will
Fires ploughing up my head
Oh forgive I will forget

Lord are you hiding in the haze?
The seventh door I'll try is daze
Angel send another storm to face another dawn

Close your eyes now
Kingdom on the broken mirror
Close your eyes now
Blizzard on the broken mirror
The scent of goodbye
They're dying away: the sands of time
 
 
Runaway Train
Goodbye
Your pocket full of dreams
Your mind in a daze
Keep on chasing rainbows
Fly high
Leave the past behind
The dark road you take bears no escape

In a world of grand illusions
Where love is just a dream
You gotta make your sacrifices
Time to pick your poison

The fool is he who is noble minded
And bellies up to poverty
He's not a king in the world of diamonds
Paling into oblivion

I lay down my soul for glory
I've given a life away
Don't know if I am sorry
Blind me, blind me

Don't know where I'll be going
I gotta get away
From the pain of recollection
Drawn into the faint

Hang on to a runaway train
No turning back
Tethered to a runaway train
Take me away
Torpid in the wind and rain
No turning back
Hang on to a runaway train
Take me away

If I'm a stranger to myself
Then I better gotta stay away
Even better gotta get away, get away
Time to pick my poison

Feel the devil sitting in my neck
Straight ahead into the unknown
Oh father I forgive you for I
Don't know what I'm doing

It's only human nature
To keep away from pain
Take a train to ecstasy oh
Ride on, ride on

Inhale the scent of heaven
Respire the smell of fame
You've been to hell and back
You can't change things anyway, no

I hang on to a runaway train
No turning back
Tethered to a runaway train
Take me away
Torpid in the wind and rain
No turning back
I hang on to a runaway train
Take me away

Reaching out to rule the world
You'll watch the mirror shatter
As you'll be dazzled by the sight
Once only diamonds mattered

How can you justify the way
When you wake up screaming
Will you pretend that you were blind
When you were really seeing

Your image everywhere
The looking glass: a sheet of ice
It's thick enough to dance on
In a frozen realm of lies

But the ice will break
And you will scream repenting
Oh boy the ice will break
You'll just feel your heart rending

Riding on to a world of funny flowers
Riding on to the white wide world
If coming back would hurt my pride
I rather take another ride
Riding on, winter on the mirror
Riding on into the unknown
If I'll awake in pain one day
I gotta catch just one more train

Days gone by
Who'd wanna live forever
On our knees up your road
Paved with good intentions
Fly high
Where angels can't breathe no more
Some dare to go blind
Some stay behind

I hang on to a runaway train
No turning back
Tethered to a runaway train
Take me away
Torpid in the wind and rain
No turning back
I hang on to a runaway train
Take me away

Hang on to a runaway train
No turning back
Tethered to a runaway train
Take me away
Torpid in the wind and rain
In the wind and rain
I hang on to that runaway train
 
 
Crestfallen
I'll-defined as I look in the mirror
Am I blind, am I blind
Am I given or just a straying fool
Feel it near
Something's here to watch

I feel their eyes sending shivers down my spine
Evil eyes, evil eyes
See me crawling as I'm falling off the edge
Paralyze, tantalize

Feel it there
From everywhere it sounds

And you'll fall away from heaven
Once you know you can't take no more of it
You will fall away from heaven
By the time you can see the crime against you

Hey - desperation
Angels crashing from the sky
How can you hold on to your way
In your mental disarray
I am your struggles
The answer to your pain
I am the fury in your eyes
I am reason, I am vice

It's there
From everywhere it sounds

And you'll fall away from heaven
Once you know you can't take no more of it
You will fall away from heaven
By the time you can see the crime against you
 
 
Forever Is a Long Time
Oh yeah
Young is the day
Still it's the same
The same old tomorrow
Colors too bright
So dream in black and white
If you wanna rise from the hollow

The future in sight
The past in your head
Nightmare or treason
The father above you as you
Walk through the ashes
Don't you run out of reason

You keep waiting
For your choice to be made
There ain't no bounty
For the number of passions
You rein in for love

You are defying the devil
Forever this time
But you can't imagine
Forever will drag on a long long time
You are defying salvation
The wait is your crime
Stalemate in virtue we falter
Forever is a long time

Pleasure and pain feel all the same
To the dreamer who's trying to get closer
Strange how it feels in reality
When your fairytale is over

No right or wrong
I just keep going on
And I don't get lost in belief

Falter and pray
Keep looking away
I don't wanna see

We keep on waiting
For a choice to be made
There ain't no bounty for the passion
We rein in for love

You are defying the devil
Forever this time
But you can't imagine
Forever will drag on a long long time
You are defying salvation
The wait is your crime
Stalemate in virtue we falter
Forever is a long time
Forever is a long time
It's gonna take forever

Oh - young is the day
Still it's the same
The same old tomorrow
Colors too bright
So dream in black and white
Wanna rise from the hollow
You are defying the devil
Forever this time
But you can't imagine
Forever will drag on a long long time
You are defying salvation
The wait is your crime
Stalemate in virtue we falter
Forever is a long time
 
 
Black Wings
I've been here through a million ages
I am the savior inside
Tonight I am love and justice
Tomorrow perversion to spite

And now that it's bleeding you dry
I'm calling you, I'm calling you
When temperance is bleeding you dry
I'm knocking you off the perch

And out in the rain
I'll hide under wings I'd curse in sunlight
Out in the rain
You can break me and take me away
On wings of fury

Live your tragic comedy
I'm the poison in your veins
Circumspection, vanity
You give all they can take

I am fury, I am fire, I'm the worm inside
Deliver you from self-denial tonight

When temperance is bleeding you dry I'm inside

And out in the rain

I'll hide under wings I'd curse in sunlight
Out in the rain
You can break me and take me away
On wings of fury

Who do you think you are
To tell me what to say
Who do you think you are
To tell me what to play
And what not to break

And out in the rain
I'll hide under wings I'd curse in sunlight
Out in the rain
You can break me and take me away
On wings of fury
 
 
States of Matter
Your mind to infinity
Let reason rivet on your feet or you may fall
You're drawn into a distant glow
You dream of voices from on high
But can't evade another rainy night
And putting on another show
Hate and affection
Pleasure and pain
Modes of vibration
Unveiling to be all the same

And when the final day has come
It's another state of matter
And when you face another sun
It's the union of the states of matter

Failure and defeat and all the riches surely beat
Where I have been and what I have been before
And when the sands of time run low
Commemoration of a lonely crow
That would have made it through the door

Light and affection
Darkness and pain
Mind of matter
The all's gonna make it all the same

And when the final day has come
Another state of matter
When you will face another sun
Union of the states of matter
 
 
The Edge
When I was sent to walk this long cold way
I'd never meant to take it all this far
Nobody told me I was bound to stray
You gave me visions and cut out this part

When the journey is over
Then what will remain
But a churchyard of angels

Don't need no glory
The bottle and I
Don't need no sympathy at all
As I hang on the edge

Don't need no glory
Till the river's run dry
I won't cry for sympathy as I
Hang on the edge

When your were shackles chances passed me by
I've broken free
Now I'm free falling
Laid down my arms as you laid down the lie:
Those words you didn't say when I was calling

Fingers bleed onto the ivory
They dance on the keys
To a churchyard of angels

Don't need no glory
The bottle and I
Don't need no sympathy at all
As I hang on the edge

Don't need no glory
Till the river's run dry
I won't cry for sympathy as I
Hang on the edge
 
 
Stargazers
We have roamed the plains a million years
Gathered at the shore
When we had run out off all fears

We have come from everywhere
Crumbling worlds behind
Reason is what we're gonna give
To be given peace of mind

Crimson is the pavement
Blood is dripping from our dreams
To the sound of smashing yesterdays
We dance in ecstasy

Oh craving devour me, take me away
Oh to infinity, take me away

Take me away
Oh yeah take me away
Far away

Don't you turn your face to the night sky
Said the fainthearted one
You may see through the charades
An instant that won't come undone

I can feel the ease of my pain
Decline of the blood reason level
Gazing in awe bystanders scream
Mentally critical fettle

We're sailing on gentle waves
We read the sky

Stargazers, stargazers
Behold the key
Stargazers, stargazers
Infinity
Reason left behind

Where are you detecting the wrongs
Spirit that always denies
I've gone insane
Release me from waiting
For the sparkle to rise

I can see they're nailed to the cross
Cannot live till they're gone
Immortal they cry on terrestrial embers
While they laugh at the clown

You feel a chill as if time stood still
There's no way out

Stargazers, stargazers
Behold the key
Stargazers, stargazers
For a lucid dream
You'll leave the world behind

Oh craving devour me
Release me, please, take me away
To infinity, oh take me away
Craving devour me
Take me, take me away

Stargazers, stargazers
Behold the key
Stargazers, stargazers
Infinity, reason left behind

When the sun rose to wake another day
They were gone, gone without a trace
Babylon, craving in lucidity
Babylon, the fire will remain

And the sun razes from their memory
What the dark had cyphered in the sky
And the flame's burning their lucidity
Babylon, rise up to the night

Oh, let us wander
Let us wander between the worlds
We override their principles
Abrogate horizons
Abandon mental gravity
Oh, we overrule the eye
Compromise your sanity
To heaven
To hell
 
 
Angel of Babylon
You turn off the light
And you won't make no difference
You hear the echoes fade away
When the cries of despair
Turn to a sound in distance
The road ain't divine
Black are the wings that will carry me home

Tower in the night, up to the sky
Carry our remains angel of light
To the dark side of Paradise

On wings of fire to the back side of light
From Babylon to Paradise I crawl
On through shadows, I've seen iniquity galore
Been worth a detour and some more
The snake in the backyard of heaven

Venus guiding to the back door of love
From Babylon to Paradise I'm drawn
On through shadows, I've seen iniquity galore
Been worth a detour and some more
The snake in the backyard of heaven

I feel how I faint as I'm crossing the Acheron
Wash away my innocence
Was I losing my away
When the sky has been blackened
This short cut of evil
Where do they drive me, where will I go

Days gone by time after time
I'm going insane, losing my mind
To the dark side of Paradise

On wings of fire to the back side of light
From Babylon to Paradise I crawl
On through shadows, I've seen iniquity galore
Been worth a detour and some more
The snake in the backyard of heaven

Venus guiding to the back door of love
From Babylon to Paradise I'm drawn
On through shadows, I've seen iniquity galore
Been worth a detour and some more
The snake in the backyard of heaven

On wings of fire to the back side of light
From Babylon to Paradise I crawl
On through shadows, I've seen iniquity galore
Been worth a detour and some more
The snake in the backyard of heaven

Venus guiding to the back door of love
From Babylon to Paradise I'm drawn
On through shadows, I've seen iniquity galore
Been worth a detour and some more
The snake in the backyard of heaven
 
 
Your Love Is Evil
Day after day I see her smile
If you could see her through my eyes
You wouldn't call her a little boy's fever dream

How can you tell my feelings wrong
How can't you see it's growing strong
Silicone angel you are my fantasy

Your eyes are cold
Pale are your skin and your lips
Pale is your desire

You are the one
Day after day I'm under your spell
And you look away
Your love is evil

You are the one
Day after day
You are the rain
I'm the parade
Though your love is evil

I feel how you watch my every move
Why do you lie to me and you
Your languidness shining through a crystal wall

Nobody would touch you like i would
Nobody would stop us
If I could reach out through the glass
Pretend you don't hear my call

Your eyes are cold
Pale are your skin and your lips
Pale is your desire

You are the one
Day after day I'm under your spell
And you look away
'Cause your love is evil

You are the one
Day after day
Under your spell
And you look away
Though your love is evil

You are the one
Day after day I'm under your spell
And you look away
Your love is evil

You are the one
Day after day
You are the rain
Still I'm the parade
Though your love is evil
 
 
Death Is Just a Feeling
Living in the darkness
What a cold and lonely night
Voices in the darkness
Sing a sweet sweat lullaby

Something's coming nearer
Anyone to join in game? A game
Welcome to the attic
Hospitality is my name

Eyes so alive
I've been feeling pretty dead
For quite a while
Gimme a smile

Dead-and-alive
Come a little closer
You and I:
Affiliates forevermore and I'm alive
Death is just a feeling
You and I swapping finitude
And love for diamonds
I'm just a little pale

Don't hesitate to sign right here
Don't be afraid to come with me
Specialized in temporizing
Dead to faulty love and time

Faulty time
We'll be dancing right here
Forever and a while
Day by day

Dead-and-alive
Come a little closer
You and I:
Affiliates forevermore and I'm alive
Death is just a feeling
You and I swapping finitude
And love for diamonds

Value by value
I'm gonna turn into breath after breath
Love we trade in for silver
Defy what they use to call death
And dust covered treasures will shine again
An unseen accolade
Larger than life, a memory
Death will be just a charade

Dead-and-alive
Come a little closer
You and I:
Affiliates forevermore and I'm alive
Death is just a feeling
You and I swapping finitude
And love for diamonds
I'm just a little pale
 
 
Rat Race
There'll be fireworks tonight
Everybody's on their knees
Admiration for the one
Riot in a dead-end street
Don't be afraid to hear his voice
Tells you lies you wanna hear

You just listen and obey
Got the ticket in your hand
A new religion for the mob
For everyone to understand
We're all just clockwork toys tonight
And salvation is drawing near

The snow covered opera tonight
Enchanted with dilated eyes

Living in a rat race
Dying in a rat race
Burning in the stream again
Why should I dare to break away

Living in a rat race
Living in a rat race

I got sulfur in my veins
Devil watching through my eyes
I got beauty I got brains
And there's no one to defy
I've got the power in my fingers
And the opera in my hands

The onset of winter tonight
The mirror it gives me a smile

Living in a rat race
Dying in the rat race
Burning in the stream again
Why should I dare to break away

Speeding in the rat race
Bleeding in the rat chase
Burning in the stream again
Why should I dare to break away

Living in the rat race
Dying in the race
Burning in the stream again
Why should I dare to break away

Speeding in the rat race
Bleeding in the rat chase
Burning in the stream again
Why should I dare to break away
 
 
Down in the Dark
All of a tremble
You can feel their poison arrows
Have left their mark
Higher and higher
Wanna seize the day
While you're waiting for the dark

You're running from the disdain
You know this time
You won't turn around
Chasing an illusion, disillusion
Desire leading, downward bound

Into the black
You are tracing the riddle
Where no man's been
No turning back
No more lost in the middle
Never again, never again
Once you have opened your eyes
Down in the dark you'll be crossing the line

I'm a believer on the receiving end
Of the bat they hold with grace
Dead to the voices of the anxious
Timid of him who must not be named

Enticing me away now as the sun sets
To the truth that lies beyond
I'm chasing an illusion, an illusion
Revelation I'm coming home

Into the black
You are tracing the riddle
Where no man's been
No turning back
No more lost in the middle
Never again, never again
Once you have opened your eyes
Down in the dark you'll be crossing the line

You turn your back on the one
Willing to make up his mind
No you never stood in my shoes
Evil versus divine
You're feeling drawn to purity
Like a moth to the flame
Light at the end of the tunnel
Strange how the voice of the savior
Roars like a train

Into the black
You are tracing the riddle
Where no man's been
No turning back
No more lost in the middle
Never again, never again
Once you have opened your eyes
Down in the dark you'll be crossing the line
 
 
Blowing Out the Flame
I sold my soul for diamonds
And reason for acclaim
Been begging for white angels
To blow my mind away

Been growing funny flowers
Where roses never grew
I stayed awake all night
When I woke up from dreams
Of me and you

I tried to take the sun and I went blind
God help me to erase you from my mind
I'm growing cold
And the night is yet to come
Anyone tell me is this

The way it's meant to be
Lost and isolated
I'm way too complicated
For you to lean on me

I play a losing game
I cried in desperation
Mental devastation
I'm blowing out the flame

Self-pity gave me shelter
I always hid away in vice
Dyslexic, torn and tattered
I tried to read the signs

You never tried to take a look
At the one I'd have died to be
Now it seems you don't see me at all

Was it all worth it
Visions holding sway
When the real thing got lost along the way
Yes anyone tell me is this

The way it's meant to be
I'm lost and isolated
Way too complicated
For you to lean on me

I play a losing game
I cried in desperation
Mental devastation
I'm blowing out the flame

Yes anyone tell me is this
The way it's meant to be
Lost and isolated
I'm way too complicated
For you to lean on me

I play a losing game
I cried in desperation
Mental devastation
I'm blowing out the flame
 
 
Symphony of Life
Tonight, tonight, tonight
Heal me, heal me

Yes in the darkness of the night
I know there's someone near me
I can't explain but it's all right
As long as this won't leave me

I give to you my sacrifice
My virgin creed, my passion
I'm torn in two but all my life, my life
My life I'll wait for you

To near me
And reveal me

Rush tonight
We play the darkest of all symphonies
And in a flash of light
Then it'll all become the symphony of life
Of life, my life

Heal me

And in the deepness of my dreams
I know it's you that haunts me
In blood I swear my purity
And save my treasures for you

I give to you my sacrifice
And lay my burden down
Am I deranged that all my life, my life
My life I wait for you?

To cease me
And release me

Rush tonight
We play the darkest of all symphonies
And in a flash of light
Then it'll all become the symphony of life
Of life, my life

You haunt me, chase me like a beast
And with a taste so bittersweet
You love me, grieve me till I'm mad
Now is the moment
 
 
Alone I Remember
I've been walking down this road
With a suitcase full of dreams
I've seen my demons come and go
To show me what I need

Madness, walking dynamite
Been dancing on the edge
They got me by the fuse
Smiling with a match

I wanted love, I wanted life
Been striving for a new direction
I wanted out, I wanted more
I wanted to forget the damage left behind

But I recall the dream I had
When I kept moving on
Can't stand to remember

I recall
No turning back
Now I'm moving on
Alone I remember

Raise your head
Got stars above and emptiness below
Think of what you'd never had
And would have never known

You wanna turn your back on me
Condemn this pleasure dome
Make sure you won't regret
Mistaking friend for foe, no

You're at the gates,
You re on the edge,
I've seen them falling back to nowhere,
You re of the red, out of your head,
And you'll wish you haven t seen it all

I recall dream I had

When I kept moving on
Can't stand to remember
I recall
No turning back
Now I'm moving on
Alone I remember

Oh and I recall I used to have a dream
I won't forget that moment of glory

But I recall the dream I had
When I kept moving on
Can't stand to remember
I recall
No turning back
Now I'm moving on
Alone I remember

I recall the dream I had...
 
 
Promised Land
Hey redeemer
Now what's become on me
Taken in by promise
Awakening in grief

Collecting us like puppets
You instrumentalize
A frigid trepidation
In a million puppet eyes

God gave his word just to let us down
Where is he now?

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

You scratched my back and I scratched yours
It s you who makes decisions
I just open up the doors

Whining in the gutter
They forget their sanctity
Welcome to my clockwork
Vanity machinery

You gave your word
You let me down
What am I now

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

Oh as far as the eye can see
They re bent in submission
Empty inside
An army of scarecrows like me
Thousands of broken dreams
Thousands of tragedies
Tried to run from their destiny

Like moths to a flame
Driven by vanity
They been off to Jerusalem
Chasing a dream
Calling on me
We're just trading in needs

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land
 
 
Journey to Arcadia
A lonely boy, a handful of dreams
Cold wind blows through a heart wired-in
Open skies he would explore
No there ain't no mastery
Of a passion and a deep blue love

Yearn to see far away places
One day he'd feel two hearts collide
In his eyes tears and desire
But he prays and he swears every night
One day scales will fall from her eyes

Just with a dream
Just with a dream and with a song
On my own I may stumble and fall
It don't matter at all when you're blessed with
Just what's yet to come, what's yet to come

When dogs run barking
And I don't hear no sound
And the sky is as blue
As eyes have never seen it
Then I remember
What I'd have been dying for
Faith rescue my dream
From a role that I've been put in
On their screen

Your eyes, and as I'll look into your eyes
We're at the crack of dawn
Life will stop telling lies
And destiny will know
It's just you and I

Burning feet on the ground
Got my head in the clouds
Journey to Arcadia
And I know I will stand
What I can't comprehend
Journey to Arcadia

The more we see we understand
That there's a lot that we don't know
As you awake on padded ground
The final curtain of the show

Far from the eye but close to heart
No matter how we try
Can't repel the counterpart
Our common bond we can't defy

I've seen them standing at the crossroads
When they were waiting for a sign
And they unlearned to face the silence
As they unlearned to turn inside

You're turning to the sky
And you're dying for an angel
If you want it bad enough, see those eyes
That's where two glances collide

Learn to breathe, learn to crawl
Learn to stand, walk and fall
Learn to lose and to love, to believe, to rise above
Love is more than to love

Burning feet on the ground
Got your head in the clouds
You're out to find Arcadia
And you know you will stand
What you can't comprehend
Journey to Arcadia

The more I've seen I understand
That there ain't nothing that I know now
As I awake on padded ground
The final curtain of the show
