I want to post lyrics of two songs... Their meaning for me is clear - they remind me my dear beloved man... :cry:

The Night of Dreams (band: Labyrinth)

Close your eyes, can you see?
It's the land of Secret Dreams Take my hands.
Follow me where Time escapes from Reality
Can you feel the loneliness burning in my heart?
I would need an Angel to teach me again to fly

Fly to me and save me
Heal my broken wings
Close your eyes and kiss me
'cause tonight

It's The night of Dreams
and your crystal - eyes could drive me to the light
It's The night of Dreams
and I can finally dream to fly

higher, till the sky

Every day and every night I look up for your eyes
rain is falling from the sky like tears and I don't like

Fly to me and save me
Heal my broken wings
Close your eyes and kiss me
'cause tonight

It's The night of Dreams
and your crystal - eyes could drive me to the light
It's The night of Dreams
and I can finally dream to fly

higher, till the sky

Now I wonder what I would ever have been
If I had never met you
Stars in the sky are shining as never before
Now I can answer, I know ("What is Love?")


Sleeping Sun Nightwish

The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest
For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my nights
A truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

I wish for this night-time to last for a life-time
The darkness around me – shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Sorrow has a human heart
From my God it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go 222 days of light
Will be desired by a night
A moment for the poet`s play
Until there`s nothing left to say

I love the lyrics of next song (and also the whole song is awesome)...
Lyrics really comes my mind when I'm listening or reading
some boring conversation which seems to be so familiar :) And that was just example...

Iron Maiden - Dëja Vu

When you see familiar faces,
But you don't remember where they're from,
Could you be wrong?
When you've been particular places,
That you know you've never been before,
Can you be sure?
'Cause you know this has happened before,
And you know that this moment in time is for real,
And you know when you feel Deja vu.

Feel like I've been here before,
Feel like I've been here before.

Ever had a conversation,
That you realise you've had before,
Isn't it strange?
Have you ever talked to someone,
And you feel you know what's coming next?
It feels pre-arranged.
'Cause you know that you've heard it before,
And you feel that this moment in time is surreal,
'Cause you know when you feel deja-vu.

Feel like I've been here before,
Feel like I've been here before.

Ok ,this is something I wrote. It meant much to me back then, so don't treat it coldly...

Answer my call...
Don't leave me behind
please...
Sadness takes over me,
Silence in my ears
and your voice nowhere to be heard

Loneliness...
Is something I don't wanna feel
Bad dreams take shape
of you turning against me...

Answer my call,
stay with me
please...

I am now like a lost child
needing some rest in your warm hands

Don't leave my side
Please...
Night will take me away,unless you
Stay...
here...
with me...

One by me, not a lyrical masterpiece, though, but anyway..



here i stand tonight
with no one by my side
and all that i can see
is what we could be
what we could have been..

I look into your eyes, so blue..
Now i know again, all i ever wanted is you
You're the reason i'm still here
but you won't be there for me i fear

all of my days have turned to grey
there's nothing more for me to say
Every day passes me by so fast
but it seems the nights forever they do last
Lying there, there is nothing i can do
but trying not to think of you


Now before the new day began
i got to left behind me a night i couldn't sleep again
another morning is greeting me so cold
after all i think i've all my feelings sold
to get some lonelyness instead..

I look into the skies, so blue
Now i know again, all i ever wanted must have been you
You're the reason my hope still burns
but my heart for more it yearns

all of my days have turned to grey
there's nothing more for me to say
Every day passes me by so fast
but it seems the nights forever they do last
Lying there, there is nothing i can do
but trying not to think of you



Is there a reason still to go on..
Is there anything in this time i have won..

Knowing my life won't ever be the same again..

But the world keep's on turning
And still my hope is burning..

But after all i faced.. there's only emptiness inside..

Lately I've been much into Daniel Gildenlöw's stuff (of the band Pain Of Salvation) and it's really among the best lyrics ever to me. Especially the album The Perfect Element who holds that so true sentence :

Strange, the way beauty can hurt the unopened eye
Much more than all of the filth and pain
That we're soaked in ever could


(maybe Cristiane aka Elecktra will see what I'm t hinking about ;))

This song predetermine my life in most part. It's mandragora's song, one of my favorite. :roll:

Bloody Ballade

+++++++++++++++++

[Issergia]

I'll never die, I hold my blaze on storm witched whirl
True ways are flowin' on leaden skies
Deity and mist, that are that mirth behind my death
While groans melt in whispers my hymns are thine
I'll be there-fight
In your eyes-light
Through the dark-reign
All your pain
In your mist-lost
With your wings-flight
Through your mind-rape
All your dreams, all
Lain' to lie, and right away, strugglin' through your veins
Your heart...
'Till I bite thy neck again, this fall won't be sweet in vain
Fallin' leaves, like tears comin' down from scary lights
On thy pale lips like diamonds cryin'
Dyin' away from my life I get lost in thy
Gloomy eyes that I'll never stray over and ever again
Bloody ballade
Bloody Ballade right away, strugglin' through my veins
Again life
Bloody balladem life...

it's not cheap :D

here's one where i like the text, but i'm not quite sure whether i understand it..



Kamelot - Center Of The Universe


Move slowly
Beyond the colors of my eyes
Move slowly
Into the corners of my mind
Rising like the Pegasus
Each and every one of us
Released
Islands in the sea of dreams
Always searching harmony
And peace

All we find
Reject our mind
Don't you wonder why

If the war by heavens gate released desire
In the line of fire someone must have known
That a human heart demands to be admired
Cause in the Center of the Universe
We are all alone

Show me sign of paradise
A place we all would like to go to
Tell me what to sacrifice
So there's a chance for me to want you

All I find
Reject my mind
And I wonder why

If the war by heavens gate released desire
In the line of fire someone must have known
That a human heart demands to be admired
Cause in the Center of the Universe
We are all alone

I have a tale to be told won't you listen tonight
Follow me into the core of the fountain of light
Try to imagine that hope is our ship for the soul
(Over the ocean the quest of your life lies ahead)
Maybe together we'll find there's a place for us all
(Follow the star in your mind, sail along sail along)

Song: Time
Band: Angra

This time I wanna know what life means...
... to live it again
I'm looking forward, feel the light shine in my eyes
And now I know, my instincts were not wrong
And many things can be done
I don't believe now
That I'm dreaming alone

Oh, we're searching for the love
that everyone's got, but can't see
Oh, beyond the flesh and blood
there's so much hidden behind
as so much more we've gotta give...

Sanity brings up the sadness
that keeps your illusions locked in a little box
Fright comes, you find yourself lonely
in a cage of conclusions crowding your mind
You sit back bowing your head
Every answer - yes
Why don't you trust me and shed out your fears,
Running over the tears you've contained
now cover up your eyes
- Is it good for you?

I will be here when fire burns!

Welcome on board
over here is the ship of your life
So rotten that will cast away
I'll be your sweet lullaby all the night
And if you get lost you can hold my hand...

And I'll be here when fire burns
(Inside your heart)
Climb up the hills and mountains,
don't forget what you've learned!

Life makes us feel the time we cannot hold
Time makes us live a tale already told
Time makes us heal a feeling inside
a feeling that lies in our heart
that we stole away...

And I'll be here when fire burns
(Inside your heart)
Climb up the hills and mountains,
don't forget what you've learned!

Life makes us feel (life makes us feel)
The time we cannot hold
Time makes us live (time makes us live)
A tale already told
Time makes us heal (time makes us heal)
A feeling inside
a feeling that lies in our heart
that we stole away...

----------------------------------------------------------------

A classic
Song: Carry On
Band: Angra

Simple minded brain,
for now you succumb
Nothing changes your way
This worlds insists to be the same
based on our mistakes
The flowers fade along the road
Don't blindfold your eyes,
so loneliness becomes the law of a senseless life

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are on your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride to get there...
Go!

Now we have to face another day
You won't be alone
This life is forcing us to stay
- For how long?
Cold is the wind and thunder struck on a stormy night
But can't you see, I'm by your side
We are marching on!

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are on your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride to get there...

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past, to carry on

Follow your steps and you will find
The unknown ways are on your mind
Need nothing else than just your pride to get there...

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past

So, carry on,
There's a meaning to life
Which someday we may find...
Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past

Carry on, it's time to forget
The remains from the past, to carry on
The remains from the past, to carry on
The remains from the past...

Here I post the song "patience" from Guns n roses. It is this song that fits to my situation now.... what I feel now.... I have to be patient but I am not...


Patience

Shed a tear 'cause I'm missin' you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt
You're in my heart now

Said, woman, take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Said, sugar, make it slow
And we come together fine
All we need is just a little patience
(patience)
Mm, yeah

I sit here on the stairs
'Cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now
I'll wait, dear
Sometimes I get so tense
But I can't speed up the time
But you know, love
There's one more thing to consider

Said, woman, take it slow
And things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Said, sugar, take the time
'Cause the lights are shining bright
You and I've got what it takes
To make it, We won't fake it,
I'll never break it
'cause I can't take it

(whistle)
...little patience, mm yeah, mm yeah
need a little patience, yeah
just a little patience, yeah
some more patience, yeah
need some patience, yeah
could use some patience, yeah
gotta have some patience, yeah
all it takes is patience,
just a little patience
is all you need

I been walkin' the streets at night
Just tryin' to get it right
Hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like
Being stuck in the crowd
And the streets don't change
But baby the name
I ain't got time for the game
Cause I need you
Yeah, yeah, but I need you
Oo, I need you
Whoa, I need you
Oo, all this time
(ah)
you can't kill my dreams
you can't kill my spirit
I was born to be FREE!

I wonder, does none of you remember Key to the Universe?
It's a really nice song that brings nice images to your mind...
But, just in case...

Key to the Universe, Timo Tolkki

Another day is passing by
Nothing feels the same anymore
I see it clear, without fear
Complete order in my life
As I look into the blue sky
I feel so much alive
I have never felt like this before

We are the same everywhere
We just want to be loved
We are confused, We are scared
Still we have to find our own way
Life's not always very easy
There are time's when it all feels black
But I tell you there is always a way

And the key to the universe is love
And this key could free all mankind
Trust yourself
The voice within will guide you on your path of life
The key to the universe is love

Mandragora Scream - A Vision They Shared

+++++++++++++++++++++++

I feel, rapin' all my mind,
Freezin' ghosts dancin' around
Cryin' through hell drives me insane
While my soul burns in time
You enjoy my death-I'll curse your soul with my spells
No Prince from your womb-I'll wretch you and all your dreams
Oh! your sinful lust-Thirteen nymphs will tear you apart
My breath won't die-My Nymph's white eyes
I'll bring the powers shinin' at night
Invoke breeze of black storm
Thirteen nymphs will show white eyes
Ebony vultures will fly
You enjoy my death-I'll curse your soul with my spells
No Prince from your womb-I'll wretch you and all your dreams
Oh! your sinful lust-Thirteen nymphs will tear you apart
My rhymes will return-Your last voice is melody
They will breed your son-Three tremblin' vultures will star
Mylast hero - No one will sing

++++++++++

I really don't know why I love vampires so much...

MIDNIGHT AT NOON (Edenbridge)

the sun has set beyond the western sky
and with the coming night you hear ‘em cry

from the fear they were overrun
from the hurricane they were spun
the candle has lost the flame
cause they play the final game

out from the dust they danced apart from all
all warnings overheard until they call

the storm has turned the tides
all is changing from left to right
the gloom it came over them
again and again

(chorus)
as we stand here in vain we’re awaiting soon
the falling twilight of midnight at noon
there’s no sun to see there’s only one moon
cause it’s midnight at noon

the sun has set beyond the western sky
and with the coming night you hear ‘em cry

from the fear they were overrun
from the hurricane they were spun
the candle has lost the flame
cause they play the final game

(chorus)
(repeat twice)
If irony were made of strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now.

Artist: Dream Theater
Song: Space Dye Vest

Falling through pages of Martens on angels
Feeling my heart pull west
I saw the future dressed as a stranger
love in a space-dye vest

Love is an act of blood and I'm bleeding
a pool in the shape of a heart
Beauty projection in the reflection
Always the worst way to start

"But he's the sort who can't know
anyone intimately, least of all a woman.
He doesn't know what a woman is.
He wants you for a possession, something to look at
like a painting or an ivory box.
Something to own and to display. He doesn't want
you to be real, or to think or to live.
He doesn't love you, but I love you.
I want you to have your own thoughts and ideas and
feelings, even when I hold you in my arms.
It's our last chance... It's our last chance..."

Now that you're gone I'm trying to take it
Learning to swallow the rage
Found a new girl I think we can make it
as long as she stays on the page

This is not how I want it to end
And I'll never be open again

"...I was gonna move out...ummm...get,
get a job, get my own place, ummm,
but... I go into the mall where I
want to work and they tell me, I'm,
I was too young..."

"Some people, gave advice before,
about facing the facts, about
facing reality. And this is, this
without a doubt, is his biggest
challenge ever. He's going to have to face it.
You're gonna have to try, he's gonna to have to try
and, uh, and, and, and get some help here.
I mean no one can say they know how he feels."

"That, so they say that, in ya know
like, Houston or something, you'd
say it's a hundred and eighty degrees,
but it's a dry heat.
In Houston they say that?
Oh, maybe not. I'm all mixed up.
Dry until they hit the swimming pool."

"...I get up with the sun... Listen.
You have your own room to sleep in,
I don't care what you do. I don't
care when. That door gets locked,
that door gets locked at night by nine o'clock.
If you're not in this house by nine o'clock, then
you'd better find some place to sleep. Because
you're not going to be a bum in this house.
Supper is ready..."

There's no one to take my blame
if they wanted to
There's nothing to keep me sane
and it's all the same to you
There's nowhere to set my aim
so I'm everywhere
Never come near me again
do you really think I need you

I'll never be open again,
I could never be open again.
I'll never be open again,
I could never be open again.

And I'll smile and I'll learn to pretend
And I'll never be open again
And I'll have no more dreams to defend
And I'll never be open again




I'm sorry, it's just that SDV gets me everytime...

This is a poem of my beloved Russian poetress Marina Tsvataeva. She had a very hard life and lost all her relatives in repressions and wars. But her talant was great through all her life. When I read this poem in Russian I cry almost every time... And now it's about me like never before.

*****

Still yesterday he sought my eyes,
He looks away last evening hence!
Still yesterday – stayed till sunrise,
Nowadays all larks turned into ravens.

You are so smart, I’m silly.- Well,
You are alive, I’m stunned. О, wandering
Through Time despairing women’s wail, -
“What have I done to you, my darling?!”

The tears are - water, as her blood.
By tears, by blood she laves and no one sees!
Like a stepmother, Love is hard.
Don’t count on - being judged with clemency.

Ships take away my darlings. Those -
Who choose the White Way. And a dark, grim
Lament ascends along the earth,
“What have I done to you, my darling?”

Still yesterday - he groveled, lied,
“I won’t exchange you for a crown!”
He took the hands off - and my life-
A rusty kopeck - is rolling down!

The murderer of my own child
I stand before a court. But dying,
Even in Hell, I’ll ask you, “Why,
What have I done to you, my darling?”

I ask the chair, the bed at night,
“Why should I tolerate my misery?”
“He kissed - it’s time to crucify -
To kiss the next one” - answer easily.

You taught me, “Like the fire be!”
The icy steppe - Here I’ve been hurled in.
My darling, - that - you’ve done to me.
What have I done to you, my darling?

Don’t argue that - all is disclosed!
No longer I‘m your lover ardent
When everlasting Love is lost –
That – will appear - Death the Gardener.

An apple - in due time - will lose!
There is no use in shaking, wangling ...
- For everything I beg excuse,
All I have done to you, my darling!

*****

The same in Russian who knows...

Вчера еще в глаза глядел,
А нынче - всё косится в сторону!
Вчера еще до птиц сидел,-
Всё жаворонки нынче - вороны!

Я глупая, а ты умен,
Живой, а я остолбенелая.
О, вопль женщин всех времен:
"Мой милый, что тебе я сделала?!"

И слезы ей - вода, и кровь -
Вода,- в крови, в слезах умылася!
Не мать, а мачеха - Любовь:
Не ждите ни суда, ни милости.

Увозят милых корабли,
Уводит их дорога белая...
И стон стоит вдоль всей земли:
"Мой милый, что тебе я сделала?"

Вчера еще - в ногах лежал!
Равнял с Китайскою державою!
Враз обе рученьки разжал,-
Жизнь выпала - копейкой ржавою!

Детоубийцей на суду
Стою - немилая, несмелая.
Я и в аду тебе скажу:
"Мой милый, что тебе я сделала?"

Спрошу я стул, спрошу кровать:
"За что, за что терплю и бедствую?"
"Отцеловал - колесовать:
Другую целовать",- ответствуют.

Жить приучил в самом огне,
Сам бросил - в степь заледенелую!
Вот что ты, милый, сделал мне!
Мой милый, что тебе - я сделала?

Всё ведаю - не прекословь!
Вновь зрячая - уж не любовница!
Где отступается Любовь,
Там подступает Смерть-садовница.

Самo - что дерево трясти! -
В срок яблоко спадает спелое...
- За всё, за всё меня прости,
Мой милый,- что тебе я сделала!

Some days ago I saw one video... I think everybody know it... I was speechless!


Hammerfall - Always will be


Our sun is set, our day is done, I'm left here wondering
Is this the end, my final words to you
Day turned to night and now you're gone, I'm left
here pondering
Can this be true, are we really through

You were the wind beneath my wings, taught me how to fly
With you I lived among the kings, how could this ever die

So I say farewell, I'm yours forever,
and I Always Will Be

We were one, we were all, we were the only
Future full of hope, nothing could stand in our way
But dreams can change, visions fall, I feel so lonely
I would walk through fire for just one more day

You were the angel of my life, taught me to be free
Now I'm a stranger in your eyes, walls are
closing in on me

So I say farewell, I'm yours forever
And I Always Will Be
Missing you, in my heart you are The One
And you Always Will Be

When I turn to the east, I see no dawn,
but after darkness comes the light
And when I turn to the west, the silent night hides all
Where is the light that shines so bright

So I say farewell, I'm yours forever
And I Always Will Be
Missing you, in my heart you are The One
And you Always Will Be

Dream With Me


Now it is time for you to close your eyes
They've seen much pain it's slowly filling your mind
Pretty as they are but now so pale
You better leave all your worries far behind

Not long ago when you had the Fire
Burning inside of you brighter than any flame
You were the one that I believed in
Keeping our hopes up high where are you now?
Where do you aim?

Let me take you there
To the place you know
Why don't you Dream With Me
The answers will be found

Now it is time to open your eyes again
See how all the sorrows have disappeared faded away
I am right here waiting for your call
If you still need me to guide your pace
Through the day

Let me take you there
To the place you know
Why don't you Dream With Me
The answers will be found

Will My Soul Ever Rest In Peace?


I've been searching for an oasis
In the desert for so long
In my weakness trying
To pretend I'm strong

I've been holding on
To things that I have left behind
I've been scared and lonely
I'm crippled inside

Bathed my soul in the starlight
Healed my wounds in the sun
Screamed my pain to the forest
Asking the question why?

Will there come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up the mountain and light up the candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace?"

I've been washed in pain
Haunted by the ghosts of years ago
They won't leave me be
They keep coming back for more

Will there come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up the mountain and light up the candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace?"

My crippled soul is yearning to be free

Will there come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up the mountain and light up the candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace?"
If irony were made of strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now.

Enciende la hoguera (Martín Knye)

Las paredes se derrumban a tu alrededor,
y hay un grito en tu garganta que quiere salir.
Corazón sangrando, corazón abierto,
lucha y palpita listo a dar batalla hasta el fin.
Cuando sangra el alma y los ojos lloran soledad,
cuando hay que encontrar las fuerzas donde no las hay,
cuando solo te acompaña tu libertad.

El sonido del silencio invade tu interior,
atronando tus oídos como un huracán.
Corazón sangrando, corazón abierto,
aún en la tormenta al final del camino está el sol.
Cuando todo lo que tienes se envuelve en tempestad,
cuando tu propio destino se vuelve contra ti,
siempre habrá un mañana si quieres continuar...
Solo los fuertes sobrevivirán,
como acero templado en el fuego tu alma será,
enciende la hoguera, deja que arda hasta el final.
I decided to translate it, so here's my very very crappy translation:

Light Up the Bonfire

The walls collapse all around you,
and there's a scream in your throat that wants to come out.
Bleeding heart, open heart,
it fights and it beats ready to battle until the end.
When the soul bleeds and the eyes cry loneliness,
when you have to find strength where there is none,
when only your freedom accompanies you.

The sound of silence invades your interior,
deafening your ears like a hurricane.
Bleeding heart, open heart,
even in the storm at the end of the road there's the sun.
When everything you have is surrounded by tempest,
when your own destiny turns against you,
there will always be a tomorrow if you want to continue...
Only the strong will survive,
like steel tempered by fire your soul will be,
light up the bonfire, let it burn until the end.


It sounds MUCH better in Spanish, but well, there's nothing I can do about it.

Edgar Allan Poe

The Raven

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore.

And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
`'Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and nothing more,'

Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
`Sir,' said I, `or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore;
But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping,
And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door,
That I scarce was sure I heard you' - here I opened wide the door; -
Darkness there, and nothing more.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before
But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token,
And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, `Lenore!'
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, `Lenore!'
Merely this and nothing more.

Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
`Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -
'Tis the wind and nothing more!'

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

Much I marvelled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly,
Though its answer little meaning - little relevancy bore;
For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being
Ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door -
Bird or beast above the sculptured bust above his chamber door,
With such name as `Nevermore.'

But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
On the morrow will he leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,
`Doubtless,' said I, `what it utters is its only stock and store,
Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful disaster
Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore -
Till the dirges of his hope that melancholy burden bore
Of "Never-nevermore."'

But the raven still beguiling all my sad soul into smiling,
Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird and bust and door;
Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking
Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore -
What this grim, ungainly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore
Meant in croaking `Nevermore.'

This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing
To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom's core;
This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining
On the cushion's velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o'er,
But whose velvet violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o'er,
She shall press, ah, nevermore!

Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer
Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor.
`Wretch,' I cried, `thy God hath lent thee - by these angels he has sent thee
Respite - respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore!
Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe, and forget this lost Lenore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil! -
Whether tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,
Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted -
On this home by horror haunted - tell me truly, I implore -
Is there - is there balm in Gilead? - tell me - tell me, I implore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Prophet!' said I, `thing of evil! - prophet still, if bird or devil!
By that Heaven that bends above us - by that God we both adore -
Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,
It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Clasp a rare and radiant maiden, whom the angels named Lenore?'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

`Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!' I shrieked upstarting -
`Get thee back into the tempest and the Night's Plutonian shore!
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!
Leave my loneliness unbroken! - quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'

And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!
Even if I'm an angel, paint me with black wings

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments which take our breath away

Giant--I'll See You In My Dreams


Gone, the voice that used to fill the room is all but gone
An echo of a perfect love that ended wrong
Girl, we tried so hard when love was on our side
And yesterday will always be the reason why

You keep comin',
you keep comin' back,
you keep comin' back for more...

I'll see you in my dreams
There we'll be safe tonight, from the lonely days of memory
I'll see you in my dreams, oh


Time, time will never be a friend of mine again
It tries to make your memory fade, but I won't let it end
Let the sun go down, so I can drift away
Let me close my eyes and live another day

You keep comin',
you keep comin' back,
you keep comin' back for more...

I'll see you in my dreams
There we'll be safe tonight, from the lonely days of memory
I'll see you in my dreams, oh


The truth, oh it's there for you to see
Sometimes it's painful to be on your own, on your own

I'll see you in my dreams
There we'll be safe tonight, from the lonely days of memory
I'll see you in my dreams
Back in my arms again, and no matter what tomorrow brings
I'll see you in my dreams, oh, oh, oh
Spamming is serious business!

The meaning of that one is pretty obvious I think, still it's great. Really touched me.

Pain Of Salvation - In The Flesh

She walks these empty streets alone
Looking for something they call "home"
Hoping to find some peace of mind
Sometimes we need to walk alone

She is set on running away
Though her mom was yelling she must stay
A wind beaten bird for reasons unheard
Sometimes it is best to run away

So fly away, fly away, fly away
Don't be afraid, don't hesitate, fly away

Some wear their bruises on their skin
Others hide their scars deep within
She has a wound close to her womb
Blames herself for letting it in

So fly away, fly away, fly away
Don't be afraid, don't hesitate, fly away
But She's afraid, she's afraid, she's afraid
Anyway
See those eyes, see those eyes, see those eyes
Hate and lies, a fire that slowly dies
But She will fly, she will fly, she will fly
Before it dies

Sometimes the hands that feed
Must feed a mind with a sick need
And the hands that clutch can be
The same hands that touch too much
Eyes that hungrily stare
Read in an access that's not there
While eyes close to hide tears
Or look away in fear
Run away!

Passing the open stores
Hiding her dirty sores
Seeking asylum among freaks and whores
What wouldn't she give to be in a society
Not learning the eyes to be closed but to see

Now she bites the words
"Never"
She kicks the ground
"Never"
Swallows her tears
"Never will I go back"
She hits the walls
"Leave me!"
Scratches herself
"Leave me!"
Begs to all Gods
"Rip me from this sick flesh!"

"I will always be there"
"No!"
She holds her ears
"You know that I love you"
Pretends that she doesn't hear
"We're in this together"
"We share the same skin"
Panic in his voice now
"Free us from sin"

"Tell me that you love me"
This is the end
"I know that you do"
Of her way
Never ever again
Follow me down

"God forgive this hunger"
"Please mommy see"
"Never tell a soul"
"Is it me?"
A child will love its parents
Will follow them down

She swears to the pavement's heart of stone
That these city lights will be her home
But still as they burn she will return
Back to the adults. . . of her home.
Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated ~desu

I LOVE this song!

Conception - Silent Crying

[Ostby, Khan]

She lays her head on
her pillow
says her prayers
with no sound
there's a shadow
by her window
telling her
there'll be no one else
to know
Silent crying
for a childhood
gone by
she's slowly dying
with the secret
she hides
close to her heart

Another night left
to eternity
another memory
to deny
she counts her dolls
tries to forget about
what no one else
will ever know

Silent crying
for a childhood
gone by
she's slowly dying
with the secret
she hides

What no one else
will ever know

Silent crying
for a childhood
gone by
she's slowly dying
with the secret
she hides
Silent crying
if she dared
she would find
the word she
dreams of
but the word
passes by.

Blackmore's Night "Now And Then"
The past time so familiar
But that's why you couldn't stay
Too many ghosts, too many haunted dreams
Beside you were built to find your own way...

But after all these years, I thought we'd still hold on
But when I reach for you and search your eyes
I see you've already gone...

That's OK
I'll be fine
I've got myself, I'll heal in time
But when you leave just remember what we had...
There's more to life than just you
I may cry but I'll make it through
And I know that the sun will shine again
Though I may think of you now and then...

Can't do a thing with ashes
But throw them to the wind...
Though this heart may be in pieces now
You know I'll build it up again and
I'll come back stronger than I ever did before
Just don't turn around when you walk out that door...

That's OK
I'll be fine
I've got myself, I'll heal in time
But when you leave just remember what we had...
There's more to life than just you
I may cry but I'll make it through
And I know that the sun will shine again
Though I may think of you now and then...

That's OK
I'll be fine
I've got myself, I'll heal in time
And even though our stories at the end
I still may think of you now and then...

AS I LAY DYING - The Darkest Nights

For so long I have felt alone
Content to live with unrest
Longing faded into countless nights
That buried my weary heart

But You brought an end
To this dead hour
And meaning to a calloused life
Held in Your arms
But too far from my heart

These thoughts will carry me through
The darkest nights
While Your eyes rest in mine

I remember the way You looked at me
And the way You drew me close
With one deep sigh
Scattering pieces of my restless mind
Forgetting all that we have left behind

These thoughts will carry me through
The darkest nights
While Your eyes rest in mine

Not Q-Ryche's strongest album, but the lyrics were certainly thought provoking when this album was released.

America's internal problems have not gone away, and feel that these lyrics are still relevant even today, particularly the "Decline, right on time". verse.

Gang-related killings have taken an upturn in my hometown this year, and the Feds have been brought in a task force to investigate. Meanwhile, most of my neighbors have to keep their doors locked and their guns loaded, especially at night.

Empire: by Queensryche

Last night the word came down, ten dead in Chinatown.

Innocent, their only crime was being in the wrong place, at the wrong time

Too bad, people say what's wrong with the kids today
Tell you right now they've got nothing to lose

They're building EMPIRE!

Johnny used to work after school
at the cinema show.

Gotta hustle if he wants an education
he's got a long way to go.

Now he's out on the street all day
selling Crack to the people who pay.

Got an AK-47 for his best friend
business.., the American way.

Eastside meets Westside downtown.
No time, the walls fall down

Can't you feel it coming? EMPIRE! Can't you hear it calling?

Black man, trapped again. hold his chain in his hand.
Brother killing brother for the profit of another,
Game point, nobody wins.

Decline, right on time.
What happened to the dream sublime?
Tear it all down, we'll put it up again. Another EMPIRE?

Eastside meets Westside downtown.
No time, no line, the walls fall down.

Can't you feel it coming? EMPIRE!
Can't you hear it coming EMPIRE!
Can't someone here stop it...??!!

Locked
