So there I was in a time without a place
And a messenger came
He knew my name
Called it out sought me out

He said, "god is dead and the devil reigns us all
It's a mystery to solve, so to save your face
Know your place and fall from grace"

I never felt then so alone
was nothing sacred I've been shown
I feel I'm sinking like a stone
In the interzone...now

In this place all our cultures could collide
Still religion divides
It's a sad excuse, such abuse
I tell the truth
I know all is one but still nothing seems the same
It's a mysterious game
So now on my mark from the start
Let's all fall apart

Have you ever felt then so alone
Where nothing's sacred nothing's shown
And you feel you're sinking like a stone

. . .



Another holiday from all the vampires
And all the sycophants caught on the highwire
So sexy, sexy babe you know I need some
To pass the time away to get relief from
All this life that's filled with wanton tragedy

Just like a runaway with no escape zone
You'd think I'd find a way you'd think I'd fake one
But all my life's been filled with wanton tragedy

Where's my angels I'm a naked soul
Where's my angels I'm a naked soul

So just for heaven's sake I'll try to face this
It's just a chance you take to get a last kiss
So sexy, sexy babe you know I need some
To pass the time away to get relief from
All this life that's filled with wanton tragedy

Where's my angels I'm a naked soul
Where's my angels I'm a naked soul
Now don't you hide from me
Don't you hide from me
Don't you hide from me

All my life's been filled with wanton tragedies

Where's my angels I'm a naked soul
Where's my angels I'm a naked soul
Now don't you hide from me
Don't you hide from me
Don't you hide from me
Don't you hide from me

. . .



You want to look at the edge of madness
Just to see to see
You want to find what you're missing out on
Well come on over here child talk it all to me
Don't you come here wasting my time
I'm going to make it just fine

Now you're bent on the edge of blindness
What you trying to see?
You want to walk with a soul of darkness
But stepping on those coals
You get those blisters on your feet
Well, don't you come here wasting my time
I'm going to make it just fine

Can't there be some other way
Can't we make you stay
In apathy?

So take a chance a soul divided stance
And bend before your needs
The waiting room is full you've pressured and you've pulled
And now your soul's tired crawling on the barbed wire
So don't you come here wasting my time
Child I'm going to make it just fine

Can't there be some other way
Can't we make you stay
In apathy?

Well can't there be some other way
Can't we make you stay
In apathy?
Don't you feel it all the love?
As below and so above
Apathy
Can't you feel it all the love?
I feel apathy
Can't you feel it all the love?

. . .



So now that your faith's gone who are you going to trust?
Now that your conscience is crawling in the dust
I've been meaning to tell you sister
I've been meaning to tell you all

I'm carved from the chaos and stained by it's reprise
And I've introduced myself for centuries
I've been meaning to tell you sister
About the master and margarita
But if you fuel the addiction you suckle its disease

And it drags you down
Drags you down
Please don't turn around

You're broken and battered you've tried with all amain
Weaned by distraction your story stays the same
I've been meaning to tell you sister
About the master and margarita
But walking through raindrops it fuels it's own disdain

And it drags me down
(All you needed was an open invitation)
It drags me down
(You said yourself you said you craved the complications)
You drag me down
(You know the one who made you make the dedication)
It drags me down
(You sell yourself you sell your soul)

. . .



If fate holds a purpose
You feel fate will lend a hand
It saves face deserts you
It deals grace from underhand
And every time the past's awakened
Every time your soul starts breaking

You can't stand the distance
You can't stand to not be afraid
You won't show resistance
You can't seem to run away
Because every time the past's awakened
Every time your soul starts breaking

In the face of the fire
You see angels conspire
Will they hear your desires
Will they stop your soulbreaking
Could they stop your soulbreaking

You won't say you're hurting
You still dream in the undertow
Just a safe place a haven
Just a kind face just to overthrow
Every time the past's awakened
Every time your soul starts breaking

In the face of the fire
You see angels conspire
Will they hear your desires
Will they stop your soulbreaking
Could they stop your soulbreaking
Will they stop your soulbreaking
Could they stop your soulbreaking
Please love

Every time the past's awakened

. . .



You've been looking for god
You've been down on your knees
Will the angels believe you now?
Wanting more than the bliss of a beautiful kiss
From the lips of the one who fell
Well it's hard to tell?br>
It's like an opium dream
Through your psyche it streams
It relieves and believes the pain
That you fought in vain
Oh no... please don't
Wave goodbye wave goodbye

Because you're sleeping tonight
Sleeping tonight
Safe in the arms of morpheus

You've escaped through these means
These delirious dreams
Helped to shelter and soothe your soul
The regrettable roles
The salvation they sold
Satisfied your desire to burn and now you've learned?
Oh no... please don't
Wave goodbye wave goodbye

Because you're sleeping tonight
Sleeping tonight
Safe in the arms of morpheus

And we're waving goodbye
You're sleeping tonight

. . .



Do you feel the same again
A return to the within
Trying hard to make amends
For your failings and your faults
And this life
It makes you wonder

You feel no shame
To come undone

It must must
Must come like the sun
"Another glimpse please, a revelation"
It must must
Must come like the sun

So you want to be my friend
Well heaven help you if you fall
You see catastrophically content
Got a witness he knows all

All my life
It's made me wonder

It must must
Must come like the sun
"Another glimpse please, a revelation"
It must must
Must come like the sun

. . .



Imagine this,
If it all falls in place
And your love,
Under will, comes as grace
All you'll see is mystery face to face

Would you tell
Should you speak
Could you say
That the love
That you feel's
Come of age
All you see is mystery and obey

And put your arms around her waist
Remember all forgotten days
The seduction song
This white water siren song

Circles me
Circles you
Circles all
And enchants
And delights
And enthralls
All we see is mystery
All in all

Everyone's a star that shines
All we see in life are signs

Should I tell
Could I speak
Could I say
That my love
Under will's
Glimpsed its grace
All I see is mystery

. . .



I never wanted to be a simple man
I'd rather live all my days as a lion
Than a thousand as a lamb
I only wanted to see
What would happen to me
If I followed the road
That leads to the palace we all seek

Did you come here lamenting what you missed
Overcome and seduced by this
The beautiful abyss
What did you come here to see
What are you trying to be
You're like a shadow that swallows life
Now you're crawling over me

The time's come again
It's nearing the end
But I feel no shame
Do you feel the same
Because I know I'll be alright
If I make it through tonight
Well I swear I'll try to change
Once again

Try to change

Innocence is a face that always lies
Innocence is a wish for some
But it's something I can't buy
What are you trying to prove
So many mountains to move
And all your demons are heaven sent
My lost cathartik friend

Try to change
Try to change
Try to change

. . .



I've got no patience for this
Your philosophies twist
And mess my mind up
I've known truth and its face
It's the cruelest embrace
And you think you taste it

This what you want
This what you need
This what you want
Beg for free

You see
I've walked on that floor
And I've walked it before
You could even crawl it
I've been through the strangest of mazes
Somewhat self induced hazes
I got through
And now back to you

This what you want
This what you need
This what you want
Beg for free

Because you're safe now
While hearts are cold
You just wait until dust turns to gold

I've got no patience for you
Because you've lied and misconstrued

. . .



And you say life is bitter sweet
You've tried so gracefully
But its faceless company has let you down
Say it comes to this
All the things you'd miss
A requiem won't change your fate

Lost and they set you free
Concerned by what they'd see
And you begged on bended knee
Still they let you down
Say it comes to this
All the things you'd miss
A requiem won't change your fate

It passes over you
Passes over

Say it comes to this
All the things you'd miss
A requiem won't change your fate
It passes over you
Passes over you
Passes over
So soon
This requiem
This requiem

. . .



A thousand dreams within
Within me softly burn
They burn the savage soul
That twisted what it learned
I feel this life slipping by
I can feel this life slipping by

Desire is a state
A state of ill repair
It's ill prepared to cope
It's ill prepared to care
I feel this life slipping by
I can feel this life slipping by

Time and time life's left me only
Feeling sick and feeling scared
Now my love is strong
My love is strong
I'll go on and on and on and on
And on

Mercy is the cry of the soul that stirred

Beneath the creeping vine
A flower tries to change
It tries to satisfy
It's thirst without the rains
I feel this change coming on
I can feel this change coming on

Time and time life's left me only
Feeling sick and feeling scared
Now love is strong my love is strong
I'll go on and on and on and on
And on

Mercy is the cry of the soul that stirred
Mercy is the cry and it's never heard

Love is all we have
