The Promised Land


I`ve kept searching for an answer.
Is it all just fantasy?
I turned to God, but turned to pagan.
I don`t need Your charity.

Pre:
I build a wall around me.
To afraid to be whole.
My eyes reflects my sadness.
I`ve buried my soul.


Twisted faith, amazed by power.
Hidden truth, forgotten youth.
He won`t arise, our prize: No freedom.
I can`t go on, surpressed too long!

Pre:
I build a wall around me.
To afraid to be whole.
My eyes reflects my sadness.
I`ve buried my soul.


Ref:
What do You mean by destroying our dream.
Leading us closer to shame.
It`s all empty words that`s corrupting our world.
You`ve fooled us by playing Your game.
I have kept my hands clean without making a scene.
No one can see who I am.
Guiding us all to the moment we fall.
Then the door`s shut, left outside the promised land.


I know I`ll never find the reason.
I know my life is just too short.
I turned from pagan to a shadow.
Left in the dark, so insecure.

Pre:
I build a wall around me.
To afraid to be whole.
My eyes reflects my sadness.
I`ve buried my soul.


Ref:
What do You mean by destroying our dream.
Leading us closer to shame.
It`s all empty words that`s corrupting our world.
You`ve fooled us by playing Your game.
I have kept my hands clean without making a scene.
No one can see who I am.
Guiding us all to the moment we fall.
Then the door`s shut, left outside the promised land.

My World

The dreams we shared were broken.
The world we had is gone.
Since all my word`s been spoken.
I have to carry on.


I know that there`s still something there.
But I can find it anywhere.

Chorus:
Tomorrow I`ll be gone.
I seek the future on my own.
I`m heading for the sun.
My future is what dreams may become.
The past is what we`ve had.
I stand alone, but I ain`t sad.
This is how I choose to live.
I have given more then You had to give....

I`ll find a way......



Somehow I think I`ve grown now.
(In) Some way I`ve gotten strong.
Someway I`ve evolved beyond You.
Your sadness hides the truth.

I know that there`s still something there.
But I can find it anywhere.

Chorus:
Tomorrow I`ll be gone.
I seek the future on my own.
I`m heading for the sun.
My future is what dreams may become.
The past is what we`ve had.
I stand alone, but I ain`t sad.
This is how I choose to live.
I have given more then You had to give....

I`ll find a way......


Bridge:
I`ve cried for You.... cried over You.
I`ve reclaimed my freedom and outlived the sorrow.
I searched for faith.... lost my faith.
I found myself, heading for tomorrow.

Chorus:
Tomorrow I`ll be gone.
I seek the future on my own.
I`m searching for my sun.
My future is what dreams may become.
The past is what we`ve had.
I stand alone, but I ain`t sad.
This is how I choose to live.
I have given more then You had to give....

I`ll find a way......

Beyond Sanity


Reaching for the sky!
Need another place to hide....
My sins has now returned, haunting me....
My dreams are tempting me...
Closer to what should not be!
This world that we create shall bleed for me....

Seek nothing... Leave Your faith...
He will arise, then it`s too late.
Fleeting glimps of what once was... Desolate...
Together we shall fall....
Madness will devour us all...
We shall dance in the acid rain... Outside the devils hall.

Chorus:
Angels, fall to the ground, burned by the sun and the flames from beyond!
Hatred will soon rule the earth, witness the birth of Lucifers son!

Wake up! Wake up! Your lost inside the fire!
Scream! Scream! Awake inside a dream!

You can`t believe Your eyes! All is dead but Your alive!
You`ve been sentenced to live forever, in solitude!
You have lost, this is Your fate!
You`ve given in to hate!
Spirits arise.....


Chorus:
Angels, fall to the ground, burned by the sun and the flames from beyond!
Hatred will soon rule the earth, witness the birth of Lucifers son!

Distant

This is a quite progressive little tune with some vocals. All the guitars is played "live", meaning that I kept the first take when I was recording the guitars. My guitarsolos are a bit "out of time" and I missed a few notes here and there, but I had fun.... I hope that there is a few twisted minds out there that will enjoy this one :)

Promised Land

This is a song I wrote in just a few minutes and made a quick recording just to put it on "tape". I`m quite fond of this song and it will probably appear on "Lucid Moon`s" debut album later this year (2005). It was a kind of "one take only" recording so I did`nt get the sound I felt this song needed, but It ended with some kind of "Low-Fi" feel that works so I made it available on this site anyway.

Otherworld

This is a quite heavy little thing that I made with my 7 string "Dean Evo", just to get the feel of the "Seventh Power". I also made some silly vocal arrangements for this one just for fun... I`m not a "high-pitch" singer, but here I tried to reach both ends of what my voice could manage.

I never finnished this one, mabye I never will hehe, but I made it available since I`m quite fond of it....
