Lyrics

FAR AND NEAR

Prelude


There’s Something

there’s a whisper in the soul
holding regrets of the wasted years
there are many empty pages
in the book of pleasant dreams

there’s something, something missing in a life
there’s something, something empty in a life

the road is far and near
the dream is gone or is it here?
the fate is there or is it real?
is the destiny in the hands of me?

there’s a light beyond the fog
there’s a day after the night

there’s something, something missing in a life

the road is far and near
the dream is gone or is it here?
the fate is there or is it real?
is the destiny in the hands of me?


A New Day

when you try your best part
and you take the pride
when you need to find the moment

when you face a million choices
and you see no light
when nothing comes to mind

the passion will guide you each time

you wait for the new day
and throw out your fear

when you feel like a helpless
and you afraid to fail
when you wish a perfect world

the music will ignite your soul

you wait for the new day
and throw out your fear

take a step to free your mind
don’t let your spirit die

you wait for the new day
and throw out your fear


Life of a Drifter

he’s drifting the sites
leaving trails in the dust
he’s searching the echoes
roaming around the twisted lanes

he’s silent and alone
moving with the stream of life
he can’t find his faith
in this immoral world

in the gloomy eyes
he’s keeping a thousand dreams
in the empty hands
he’s holding destiny

sailing on the winds of sorrow
wandering without the shore

he’s painting a picture
of his new universe
he’s onto his journey
till the last day of his life

in the gloomy eyes
he’s keeping a thousand dreams
in the empty hands
he’s holding destiny

sailing on the winds of sorrow
wandering without the shore


A Thousand Lost Souls

Faint Shadows

give me your mind
and your thoughts
give me your memories

give me your dreams
and your fate
give me your future

drown inside with me
fade out with me

tear your mind into the ground
cut your life from the universe
concede your devotion
step into the faint shadows

give me your body
and your soul
give me your dying wheeze

fraternize with me

tear your mind into the ground
cut your life from the universe
concede your devotion
step into the faint shadows


Whitelight

I can’t see you in the haze
I can’t hear you in the silence
the time is standing still
have I lost my precious stone?

I am gazing in your eyes
and I see your shedding tears
but I will try to make you smile
hope we meet someday, beyond the stars

I went to the other town
I promised to come back home
I thought of you at every crossroad
while holding your dreams

as the night came down
I waited for the dawn
I turned my way back to home
wanted to see your smile

white light of daze
burned out the hopes
the city of dreams
turned to ashes


Diary of the Blood Moon

living in the fantasy, dreaming of fidelity
exploring possibilities, ignoring humanity

no fear for the misdeeds, love is outshined by hate
no regrets for deceptions, rushing in frightful rat race

living in the fantasy, dreaming of fidelity
exploring possibilities, ignoring humanity
hostile companions, strained relations

an old friend called love is lost somewhere
a virtue in desires is lost somewhere

a radiance of purity is lost somewhere
a humanity in soul is lost everywhere

how many yet to deceived, victimless to die?

how today there is no more fire left in you?
why today there is no more modesty in you?

how today there is no more fire left in you?
why today there is no more modesty in you?

living in the fantasy, dreaming of fidelity
exploring possibilities, ignoring humanity

all is turned to disgrace
but i still shine on you
all is here is disturbance
but i still see you again
all is beyond the pale
and i search my light in you
now guess why i turned to blood moon?

Yours,
Moon
