lyrics

Those of us who know the darkness
Long for the hope of the light... Disposable citizenry.
I am the consumer of lives.

Like getting so close to solving
Some all-important, ancient maze that you can taste the victory...
Only to be suddenly flung

Deeper into the abysmal
Mire of doubt and confusion... Knowing well that fear hath torment.
The infinite versions of me have created and endured immense pain... Yet I alone am left to mend....

Thoughts of you
Breathing in
Ecstasy
Breathing out
All of me.

This was always just a dream.
Never any substance to my musings.
And although I know this
I'll do it all over again.

Still, within, I find a drive
To find what lies beyond the dream.
Past the veil, I find a black mountain.
So, with dread, I find a foothold
And, in hope, I start to climb.
Higher... Higher... I climb
Past the cloud line into eternity.

Where do we go from here?
What lies beyond this void?

Thoughts of you
Breathing in
Ecstasy
Breathing out
All of me.

Along the vast, stellar scape
Float numberless reflections
Shining backwards perspectives
Throughout the timeless cosmos.

In a soothing vision, I felt myself... Floating through the ether
One step beyond The Pale... In pure delight and peace
With rapturous joy and the misery... left behind to rot below.
Then, as violently as the force that...brought about everything,
I was ripped below where I now wallow... Deep within the filth and mire
And the truth of constant regret...

For my bitter vengeance
Fiery indignation
Neverending torture
Of a life never lived

The worst tragedy is
Having such forbidden knowledge
Only to be locked away
In the slow-fading light of a dream.

Those of us who know the darkness
Long for the hope of the light... Disposable citizenry.
I am the consumer of lives.

This was always just the dream of a condemned, poor vagabond
Never any substance to my deranged musings.
And although I still know all of this
I'll do it all over again if for only a brief glimpse
Of the life I almost had.
