Delirium Veil lyrics by Twilightning
Leant down in a daze Pictures in my face Reflections deep inside me send shivers down my spine, to guide me... A woman, not alone Blushingly stripped to the bone Now i see, i never Knew She always looked askew All this seems to be delusion It must have been an odd illusion All this feeds my inner urge to go I know, it's glowing deep inside me This show, the mindless thrall I know, your grinning might misguide me I know the weakest goes to the wall Leant down in shame An older man, so lame Shivering, full of wine By the shore line Stream's fast, don't fight At last, release the plight It's clear, without a strife I see my own life Flint, struck, gives no spark at all Women, touched, give no warmth for all A child, lost, has gone to the wall
When the heat rises up to the point of maximum temperature To give birth to the flame The fountain of passion showers high New ways emerge in the endless search for the expression supreme And true value of art What does it take to fell it and make it real? Maybe you must deal with insanity or steal When we are at the forge of creation But who knows What lights up the torch illuminating the process for all those? Those who are at the forge When the steam burns your skin And the mood is getting all so constrained And the flame's dying down The fountain of passion dried up... suddenly No way out, there's nothing you can do about it but call it And wait as long as you find another way To create or come up with something that is to thrill One must place one's soul between The hammer and the anvil
Lose your mind and lose your personality Step inside and see how foolish things can be To trade a crown for a hat with tiny bells Is far too much to ask for living in a cell Put on your motley suit and play their song with your lute So you won't be condemned Year after year --- this amusing circus remains The day draws near - it's only the clowns that are to change During that wait - I wonder how I could consciel My rage and hate - as kneeled before the jester realm Captured by the law these poor apprentices A misuse of force with evil mentors Can't say, no way, please don't take my precious away It's too big a price to pay Year after year --- this amusing circus remains The day draws near - it's only the clowns that are to change
Voice of the wise is trying to summon you From the world where all the problems you can think of are solved Blindfold, no one can see what's going on People rave though there are not even any drugs involved The vision unfolds and the things you've been told Are unjustified by your own mind Come with me and I'll show thee What lies beyond the veil of delirium you'll see And as we sail towards the dale Let the ravings and delusions be blown away by gale ...beyond the delirium veil The voyage goes on, cruising the seas of life As you head for the dale it still remains unreachable Day by day, make your way Though leviathans of the depths seem almost unbeatable The wisdom you'll gain won't make You insane Strive for the consciousness divine Come with me and I'll show thee What lies beyond the veil of delirium, you'll see! And as we sail towards the dale Introduce a new constitution Let there be no more confusion As the ravings and delusions are blown away by gale
On our way to light We are losing our own sheen There's no chance to fight Once it's gone you cannot gain it back Can't no longer see Through the eyes of the care-free None of it left in me Even the remnants perished a while ago Enigma of life hems ruin within I've seen it's rife with all this nice sin But still feel like... On wings of time we have been flying For too long it seems to me there is no turning back hence Thou I'm stronger and wiser now still I Yearn the way things used to bee, Return to Innocence I've been trying to find A path to that lost sentiment How could I rescind The progress of the years that pass me by We've become enslaved Like helots grinding on and on Hoping I had saved The urge for freedom in my heart Enigma of life hems ruin within I've seen it's rife with sin Turning back...
It's getting harder to recall In search for reason that you are here for The off-handed lapse consumed your means Right to the end... once again. Everytime I sense that malice in you I find myself pilloried Underneath sinister skies Every dull pretense made by you In another senseless story I just close my eyes Under somber skies It's getting easy to believe The weight of misery is in too deep The spirit of decline conceals solace within it's playful grin The trembling and the fear is gone Today the looking glass reflects the marvel of a pawn Fallacious euphoria's paving now the way So you may escape from cradle to grave No more suppresion, come and get me out of these stocks Without discretion, I'm at the mercy of a mob Roaring sky, fulminating furiously overtaking I cannot hide my fears to aggression The forbidden temptation, another aberration under somber skies
In a cold sweat of my distress Need to catch my breath, in this odd mess Can't abscond from my own prison Like bashed on the head, to death... A crying shame, no vigour for rancor Can't pin the blame on my lord with anger Dash my thoughts against the wall And take my eyes off a glare Oh, i can't camouflange the Muck on my reflection Affection's what i've pleased At the seventh dawn Those flaws revealed A frown again flitted across my face I could't get out of this haze Reflections of mind, so deep At the seventh dawn I can't proceed Oh, lord I'm on my knees Don't fail in my need! Mister felt he bore a charmed life couldn't hold his horse at night time Asked for damset to be his nightwife Would you fly me to the skies? His charred mind, of that distress had been blind with his mistress Dashed his thoughts against the wall The gleam in his eyes had died No sloven can camouflange the muck on his reflection
Deeper, I wanna go, hesitating no longer! Mr. Reaper, let me show, my soul has grown much stronger Deeper, I'd surely go, if I had no doubt about it So, bear out it! I wanna know who will stifle my screams tonight? Thrilled me, like never before, the silence was unbroken Filled me with sagacious lore, the stillness gave no token Deep into that darkness peering, I stood there, fearing I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer... no longer! Obsessions need to swell A genius in his cell Wondering what went wrong Suppression of his grind A slave to his mind, in his head's game Like a madman in his game, get insane... Obsession depp in brain He found it all in vain A bitter lapse, not insane Regression he can't find Enslaved to the mind, not blind
Spectral look in your eyes you caress my skin Everyone in disguise to hide from the sin Go on! inhibitions all gone In the hope of carnal fruition we swan In the hall of the masquerade ball We're finally free 'cause of the mask and the shawl Like phantoms we dance on and on Fed upon a desire with no conditions Time to doff your attire, wear the mask and release de fire That's been smothered by the rules made up by charlatans and fools Time to doff your attire, join the ball and the truth will transpire About the over-ruling bent and why there's no need to repent Mesmerizing music plays on and takes us higher Hectic trance-like state of mind is what we'll acquire Enthralled in a cobweb of passion Reaching for the top as we spin Among myriad bodies that fashion New forms of the original sin
I know this show Been there observing how far it can go Lots of lies, suspicion and many hidden minds So aware of the power that blinds But I discovered my eyes No way, not enough guts to break these gyves Confusing minds whose hearts she'll tear So that one finds it all so clear Igniting fire, its desire burns in embers till the end Seductive way of behaving And she might say it meant nothing Never giving into temptation And after I had been receiving Job's post My welkin seemed to be so clouded Covered with dark gown But it was not to be shown I still remember that lachrymal sky Affection seeker!
