Andy

Original and similar lyrics
Andy, do you love me? Do you think about it, will you say Turning brushwood into blazes Turning summer grass into hay Turning sharply past the graveyard to the lakefront With the black waves licking up the stones To the swayed back screened in front porch Who could ever stay the weight of flesh and bones Andy, aren't you tired? From the sun and rain and river soaking you From the beer cans on your dashboard And the bullet hole glass spiderweb staining your rearview I have watched you watch an empty road Is it only her upon which all of you's depending To fill your twenty hour work day While all the fences in this county still need mending And in the night I do my checking And fix the broken part with visions of rare beauty But in my heart I know I'm second Forever fixed in you pursuit it is my duty Andy, will you toss me A little scrap of something I can taste Instead of dust from all the leaving And the smell of summer lying here to waste Under the burnt pyre of all the cast away The tiny shoots will spring like questions will you take me Out to the fenced field sprinkled with horses Wild in resistance to the taming will you break me Will you break me

Young At Heart

AMY MEREDITH "Restless"
I close my eyes, it's on my mind tonight Tonight I recognize her fear inside, so tight So tight Systems down, a broken crowds The planet shakes, we start to break The dancer falls, my skin feels cold The signs are clear, there's no one here And even when the sun keeps shinning down It's dark And even though the world keeps turning round We've stopped I'm tripping as the pattern repeats again This time we're trying to pretend Tonight we're all still young at heart Something good will come Something good will come The brighter day of time and grace Will light the way for your embrace We'll open up our tired eye to see To see And even when the sun keeps shinning down It's dark And even though the world keeps turning round We've stopped I'm tripping as the pattern repeats again This time we're trying to pretend Tonight we're all still young at heart Something good will come Listen to the sound of sirens This is where we break this violent heart Something good will come Something good will come Listen to the sound of sirens This is where we break this violent heart Something good will come It's hard to know when you're out of control It's hard to say that we'll never get old Tonight we're all still young at heart I'm tripping as the pattern repeats again This time we're trying to pretend Tonight we're all still young at heart Something good will come Something good will come Listen to the sound of sirens This is where we break this violent heart Listen to the sound of sirens This is where we break this violent heart Something good will come Something good will come

Turpentine Chaser

DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL "The Swiss Army Romance"
This paint has been tasting of lead their chips will fall as they may, but it's not just my finish that is peeling, it is not alone fleeing these walls. Well sooner of later this cold it's gonna break our hands will be warm again, but all I want is not to need you now. And sooner or later this cold it's gonna break our words will be heard again, but all I want are vows of silence now. This turpentine chaser's got kick the rag that it's soaked in is rich. The fumes aide the pace of my cleaning as soon as I'm done I am gone. The frightening facts we've been facing our backs for so long now are begging for eyes to bear witness to lies indifference. Now we're saying aloud the things we've declared in our silence. The new coats of paint will not reaquaint broken hearts to broken homes.

Crimson

Edge Of Sanity
Crimson Prologue: In a very distant future, the last generation of planet earth has come to a point where they cannot brred anymore. When everybody had lost their faith, a child was born, but no one could be the father, except for a god. This child was a gift from the skies of life-divine or... Another sky is young... Another frozen future has passed. Another breed, another cast. The rivers will run, brought to life by the sun, the circle is still unbroken. Oh, what a sight to see. Reborn life, destined for all eternity. Hail the king! For he has chosen not to drain the godsent child, a gift from the skies of life divine. Now we know. A glimpse of hope grow inside, a change of tide. Answered prayers of survival. Miracles. The offspring of the unknown gods beautifies the aura of this dying breed. So they succeed in their quest for continued time. Celebrate. The knowledge of the everlasting, never-dying. Cursed to be walkin in the shadows of death for a lifetime. No more fears for what the years will bring. Rebuild the shattered dream. And now a brighter future has come, another end remains undone and an era begins, bringing life free from sins. Oh, it's a token, the circle is broken. (The drop of blood from her mouth slowly fell down to the ground. Th child inside dried her out. The king's beloved is no more.) The chosen one felt the time had come to show the world what had grown within. This day of life, a sacred moment in time, when joy and pain collide. It takes a life to create a life. Now she's gone. Anger and hate. fear and despair fills up his mind. In search for answers he can't find. What god would end a life so pure. She was the one worth dying for. Alone with princess angel-sent. Her eyes so blue, my hate relents. Her destiny is in my hands. She was born to rule these desert lands. ( Vocals Mike: ) [A sacrifice. A life arises, when one love has come, another dies. I let her go and I do not know where to find her soul so alo- ne.] Oh, does she hold the power, is she a blessing from the skies? Is this the answer to where the secret lies. And in her eyes I see a light is shining through. I feel that there is hope for a world so brave and new. Many seasons have changed and the king is old and weak. The princess has come of age, but still the gift of life they seek. In the chambers of crimson sleep. In this vault of souls to reap. The future lies in the hands of the shrewd (Harmony: Andreas) or the earth will die in solitude. The darkest night the enchanted skies were united in a storm. Unholiness and all that's unblessed appeared in another form. Like a raging plague all across the land all women gave birth to man. Raped by the wind and forced to bring life to the hundred bastard sons. The unholy ones will give strength for all evil to live and the fires of death burn high. The time has come for the king to die. (Lead Guitar: Mike) A whole world is mourning the loss of their king. In sorrow a new day dawning. Now the princess is their everything. A procession to the chambers where they kiss their fathers ring. Can you hear the angel of sadness sing... with broken wings. (Harmony: Andreas) And with death came disorder, who were they now to obey? No leader, no followers. No trust, no faith. The princess is too young to tame a land, a new king must be chosen. In search for such a man of trust there will be contradicti- ons. Coming forth on desert ground, the incarnation of a king in sleep profound. Another self-proclaimed king, set to rule in the new empire. On a mission to save the forsaken ones and to re-light the dying fire. The crowd was confused and divided in two, a battle was about to begin. Another man with a will as strong declared a war to win. His army of believers was faithful, mighty and brave. Set to capture the liar, to forever enslave. His troops were marching on to the battlefield to set this world on fire. His forces are never giving yield. [War! They fought for what would be a blood-stained crown. Utter chaos supreme. The sand absords the colour of dawn. Nevermore shall they dream, nevermore.] The years went by under a blood-red sky, the king still sup- press the rebellian lie. He is the one, the self-chosen son, master of the throne he rules upon. The sacred child awakened from her crystal sleep. And the earth was shaking, and the people prayed for their souls to keep. The light of day is flowing into her virgin eyes. Oh, the sun is stolen. A dark formation in the skies. Unites the powers in her eyes. Her soul's inhaling all the living light. Bringing on the dark, eternal night. Gathering evil in all its might. Seven years. Purity. Innocence. Dignity. Hail, hail the queen! Ruling supreme. She is queen alone in the human zone, dethroned the king unpure. The masses were assured, she fought without a sword. She regained their hope and faith. Draining the liar in the crimson water. To bring him eternal pain. His soul is slaughtered. Eternalizing bane. Scream in silence, noone shall hear his cries encaged. The unroyal king, surrended to the child of life divine. A hundred fortnights passed but still no signs of aging. Her endless youth... amazed, the world was raging. A shattered race in this broken land this child came to resto- re, like an order from the gods. The queen and all the children gathered around the chambers where the elder ones are joined in sleep profound. In wrath she crush the tanks of crystal glass. The crimson water gushed on to the ground in the unholy mace- cration. Their souls no longer cried. Die! Their gift are denied. [She drinks the life-blood from the feebled man. Empty bodies, soul-drained by the vrigin queen. Finally given the pleasure to die. She aligns the hate inside their hearts. Her chosen knights will make sure all life departs. Soon comes the end of all, she watched a chamber fall. She heard her master call.] Live my words, oh, sacred child. You're soon to leave this world defiled. Then what awaits me my lord? Trust me my child, your wishes shall not be ignored And then he spoke his mind, now his will is hers. The earth shall fall. The eternal curse is cast on the sands they walk. Now you must use your power. Show the human race you are the one. Use their trust forever and then deceive their weakened minds. Fool them to destroy themselves in hopelessness. Belie their seeds, belie their dreams. Hope has ceased to be. The people worshiped their queen. Such beauty before her time was unseen. Their were fooled by her presence and disguise. Faithfully they listened and swallowed all her lies. The times are changing, re-arranging he pattern of our lives. So let your heart stop beating beneath this twisted sky. They were embraced by sadness, but not afraid to die. So pass this sacred dagger and let yourself fly free. So pretend you're dreaming and rise above this world of you and me. [Liar! All those who died with you by their side were denied access to the higer ground. Betrayal. Eternal detest from the ones left unblessed, so possessed. Their last caress was your knife in their hearts. Fed from her deed, watching them bleed. In her own conceit, a world to delete, lies at her feet. Her demon inside do no longer hide. Showing its face of hate and disgrace leaving their saviour unpraised.] The ones who didn't follow. Now sharing this moment of grief. The end of their own existence? In death they had no belief. Despite all the faith in their queen they couldn't believe what they had seen. What was the reason for this sacrifice. Nothing is gained from this great demise. After the ordeal we know she has the powers to decieve us all. But their dream of sons and daughters has made them standing tall. For the king had showed them it could be done when his woman gave birth to the sacred one. But is she of man, made of flesh and blood, or is she the offspring of the unholy [God?] A leader was chosen to unveil the hidden truth. The brave ones were gathered, the strongest were sent to the queen. Her reason to be must be known. After many moons the troopsreach the temple of their majesty. Guarded by a hundred faithful knights. There is no escape, there's no entry to her sacred halls. Is our vision true or false? They rtied to find the answer but they were led astray into a maze of slumper far from the light of day. The riddle remained unanswered. The queen could read ones mind, make sure that noone will find the reason for her mission here. The highness writhe in anger, her trust had been betrayed. The queen was filled with langour, her decision has been made. She would unleash her hate. Destined to devastate. She heard her demons roar, marching into war. The spirit of their beloved king ho spoke unto his men, he came to bring a message of great importance and trust. The gift from the gods has come to cover the world in dust. Her forces are closing in to your sanctuary. So use your imagination to end her reign. Remember these words, and be strong! The chosen few were sacrificed for the others life. They were the bait, they would seal the soldiers fate. A massive grave, to break the soldiers spell. The forces fell into the abyss, never to rise again. Towards the queen the last of the brave ones wandered, to terminate this creature non-divine. The loss of troops forced her powers to release the magic uncontrolled that had wasted a thousand soul. The palace controlled by demons is the heart of all evil pos- sessed by the queen and her unholy servants. If we destroy it, the earth will be ours and it will bring us eternal existance. We'll pray for the gift of breeding. This is a game we can't concede, it is worth all the blood we may bleed. We must close the gate so she can't return. We'll seal her fate, watch her temple burn and we'll capture her soul in the chambers of crimson sleep. And there she will suffer eternally for what she has done to man. We fought our way into her dwelling-place, we searched the corridors of this infernal maze, to seek our enemy the one to slay. We are the ones, we will not obey. A disillusioned servant with great knowledge in her secrets, we found him walking aimlessly trying to find his peace. He said: 'Cover her eyes, they are the root of her inhuman forces. Then she's just the child you thought she, disconnect all her sources.' They found a way to blind her and it could cost some lives. But they must seal the entry from where all evil derives. Two of the brave ones were sent to distract her while the others made their way to behind her throne. She saw her enemies for the last time as their leader covered her eyes. We saw the return of innocence, the symbol of purity we once knew. We carried her to the chambers to forever lock-up her soul. And now the reborn earth, blessed with the gift of birth can see her in this cage that eternally preserves her rage. They captured all her soldiers and forever encaged their cries. They had found a new leader to worship. A king with her clear-blue eyes.

Through The Red

AT THE GATES "With Fear I Kiss The Burning Darkness"
Music: Alf/Anders/AT THE GATES Lyrics: Alf/Tomas Catch the rainbow if you can It will always be ahead of you Years passing swifter than you ever thought Today will soon be behind you and the future remains out of reach [, out of reach] Hunting the sun, setting at the horizon When shadows threat to swallow your weak soul The key of light, the solution of all I saw it clearly behind the veil of reality and as I dreamed of lilies white in the shade of a birch they withered in the frost of awakening Fiery the angels fell from the spires of my fortress of youth Silent explosions in my universe of pain [, universe of pain, pain] Appease my hunger, defeat my solitude and let me follow where daydreams go, when ambitions fail [Years passing swifter than you ever thought Today will soon be behind you and the future remains out of reach, out of reach] Watch the sky, there is the proof of your transcience, the stars that saw the birth of our ancestors shall watch our descendants last steps on earth So, unnoticed we will pass away, like a flickering in the perpetual chaos The timebird rose from its nest of bones and thrust its beak into my eye With the beat of charging wings my transcience was confirmed [Appease my hunger, defeat my solitude and let me follow where daydreams go, when ambitions fail] Time perhaps for a salutary sleep I still long for that silent land of dreams, where the flames expire, where the spark fades and hunger is born again [The timebird rose from its nest of bones and thrust its beak into my eye With the beat of charging wings my transcience was confirmed]
