The Darkest Days lyrics

DRIFTING AWAY

 

Live or die symphony

Nightly spark no one sees

A wandering soul that's long gone out of control

 

Staring eye, empty sleep

Cold night crawls over me

Is this nightmare never ending for me?

 

Time flux has not been the same

Since you’ve been gone

I’m floating and drifting away

 

Like the green leaves turn to brown

Like a storm that gathers

And sky turns to grey

Silent tears will tear me down

Life has been stolen

I’m fading away, away

 

Run and hide melodies

New day rise, nightly weeps

Hunger for an answer I can't control

 

Gentle touch on my skin

Lights a fire within

Is it my mind playing tricks on me?

 

Time flux has not been the same

Since you’ve been gone

I’m floating and drifting away

 

Like the green leaves turn to brown

Like a storm that gathers

And sky turns to grey

Silent tears will tear me down

Life has been stolen

I’m fading

 

Like the green leaves turn to brown

Like a storm that gathers

And sky turns to grey

Silent tears will tear me down

Life has been stolen

I’m fading away

 

MIRROR IMAGE

 

 

It's said that time can heal

(How can) that possibly be as my wounds bleed

Right before my eyes

(Life is) dripping out my veins

With every beat of my heart

 

I Can't face the truth

(Exposed) in a glass room that mirror images me

I Can't recognize (myself)

Can't see a way out

As I cast myself from the ice shelf

 

(I built) skyscraping walls to prevent me from getting out

From my own guilt

 

I should have been brave enough to

Face my one and only enemy

And do not surrender to fear

And do not surrender to me

 

Intoxicated (In fear)

Driven by a freezing despair

Looking at demons

I thought I had cast out long ago

 

I Can't face the truth

(Exposed) in a glass room that mirror images me

I Can't recognize (myself)

Can't see a way out

As I cast myself from the ice shelf

 

(I built) skyscraping walls to prevent me from getting out

From my own guilt

 

I should have been brave enough to

Face my one and only enemy

And do not surrender to fear

And do not surrender

 

(I built) skyscraping walls to prevent me from getting out

From my own guilt

 

I should have been brave enough to

Face my one and only enemy

And do not surrender to fear

And do not surrender

 

HIDEPLACE

 

I was so small and felt so fragile

I could fall

Still I would get up

And keep walking on

 

I saw the whole world turn ‘round

And turn its back on me

Cause it was easier to sit and laugh

and wait for everyone to hit the wall

And crash their faces

 

But not me

I never wanted it to be this way

Not me

I’d give my hand for you to take

I’d walk alongside

I’d be there to dry your tears

And hold you

And be your safe place

And be your hideplace

 

I’ve been through all of this before

I know what it is to stare and not be able to cross that door

The mere thought of leaving is so frightening

 

The world keeps turning ‘round and ‘round

And turn its back against me

Cause it is easier to sit and laugh

and wait for everyone to hit the wall

(And crash their faces)

 

But not me

I never wanted it to be this way

Not me

I’d give my hand for you take

I’d walk alongside

I’d be there to dry your tears

And hold you

And be your safe place

And be your hideplace

 

I know I can't change your destiny

But I can try to be you soothing breeze, oh yeah

You’ve gone black and white in a grayscaled life

Come out and let your colors shine

I never wanted it to be this way

I’d walk alongside

I’d be there to dry your tears

(and hold you)

 

And be your safe place

And be your hideplace

And be your safe place

And be your hideplace

 

PIECES

 

Looking closer

It doesn’t seem I’m losing it for no reason at all

Looking closer

It’s easier to see the fragments of truth

Scattered on the floor

 

You can match all the parts of the

Puzzle I’ve broken into

 

Pieces

A shattered soul that’s tried too hard

To built it up

Fallen in pieces

Crumbled ruins of a place destroyed in time

Time after time

 

Looking closer

Catch the slightest of the details

And signs of time

Rotten, forgotten

You can feel the air so heavy

With the dust

 

You can match all the parts of the

Puzzle I’ve broken into

 

Pieces

A shattered soul that’s tried too hard

To built it up

Fallen to pieces

Crumbled ruins of a place destroyed in time

Time after time

 

I have tried so hard

To a reassemble all the parts of me

Make me whole so I'll break

Time after time after time

 

Pieces

A shattered soul that’s tried too hard

To built it up

Fallen to pieces

Crumbled ruins of a place destroyed in time

Time after time

Time after time

Time after time

MISTAKE


Choices the bottom of my soul regrets

The goodness given for the best has taken a strange path

 

When so much of me is at stake

when I close my eyes

I see all that could have been If I couldn’t feel at all

 

Those voices saying things I know I’m not

They haunt me in every step and breath I take

I know this was a huge mistake

 

I gave everything I had and even

Even more than I thought that I could ever get

I got back a knockback

 

So tired of being crystal clear and being blinded

With things they know I wanna hear

I cannot take this anymore

The guilt is mine to bear, so I will shut the door

 

Those voices saying things I know I’m not

(They are telling lies and I must let them go)

They haunt me in every step and breath I take

(They are ghost I must get rid of)
I know this was a huge mistake

 

These ghosts that haunt me

I must let them go

 

Those voices saying things I know I’m not

(They are telling lies and I must let them go)

They haunt me in every step and breath I take

(They are ghost I must get rid of)
I know this was

I know this was a huge mistake

RISE AND FALL

 

 

Today the taste is sour

As it was three years ago

My mouth is used to this bitterness

I can taste it in a different way

See it from a new point of view

But it’s hard to make them see what they so don’t want to

 

It’s like a charm, a spell or something I cannot control

When love grows so deeply in infertile soil

You can catch a glimpse of light again

A rise for further fall

 

I feel so vulnerable and they know I am

It’s easy to be cheated to be friends

The mere touch of a hand is enough

To make me feel like I'm alive again

 

It’s like a charm, a spell or something I cannot control

When love grows so deeply in infertile soil

You can catch a glimpse of light again

A rise for further fall

 

I thought I could be protective

But I can’t do so for myself

This illusion hides the pain away

Showing off as bold is tiring, drains away

All that’s left inside of me

 

It’s like a charm, a spell or something I cannot control

When love grows so deeply in infertile soil

You can catch a glimpse of light again

A rise for further fall

 

A rise for further fall

A rise for further fall

HYPERBOLIC

 

My shoulders are overburden with the weight of the world

My joints are all melting on my burning blood flush

These people are staring

Lying eyes over me as I am wasted away

 

No one ever says “hey how are you?”

“do you need anything?”

“What have you been through?”

 

Time will tell, time will tell

But how long? But how long?

 

And I know what there is inside

and the worst is that I never miss, I never miss

And I never get things wrong

Wrong impressions are not my own

Are not my own

 

Feeling like my brain is about to blow up

Like I run a race I can never catch up

Persecution doesn't sound maniac to me

As I am chased away

 

Everyone’s asking what did you do?

Did it mean anything?

What I have been through

 

Time will tell, time will tell

But how long? But how long?

 

And I know what there is inside

and the worst is that I never miss, I never miss

And I never get things wrong

Wrong impressions are not my own

Are not my own

 

Time will tell, time will tell

But how long? But how long?

 

And I know what there is inside

and the worst is that I never miss, I never miss

I never get things wrong

Wrong impressions are not my own

Are not my own

 

Time will tell

But how long?

But how long?

 

Time will tell

NO MAN’S LAND

 

Intentions can be the best

But who said you can measure that?

It’s all inside of you

 

The world may be too much

Or too little from another’s point of view

It’s all inside of you

 

Think someone would try to make me smile…

In vain

Think one’s world would turn around my life…

In vain

 

‘Cause hearts are no man’s lands

Although I wish it could be that I’d

Reach out for your hand

Leave these wastelands I find myself in

 

Look around, don’t see a thing

Look away cause it hurts to face the truth

It’s all inside of you

 

Try to find a way out

Leading to nowhere else than a road

To go inside of you

 

Open eyes and ears and arms and soul…

In vain

All that’s coming from outside will not remain

 

‘Cause hearts are no man’s lands

Although I wish it could be that I’d

Reach out for your hand

Leave these wastelands I find myself in

 

Hearts are no man’s lands

Although I wish it could be that I’d

Reach out for your hand

Leave these wastelands I find myself in

 

No man’s land

I find myself

In a no man’s land

A NEW STAND

 

The eye of mind is open wide

The piercing words enter my brain

And I feel alive again

I can stand up and fight once again

 

When purity reveals the truth

the things that are, “the what it is”

I can stand and a new day begins

I have to believe it was all meant to be

 

Those days are over

Sorrow is gone

I will grow older

Knowing that all that I’ve done

Never turned to dust

Never turned to dust

 

Never was in vain

And if I could I would do it all again

Because it’s not my fault

They see a chance and try

To burn down the walls

 

When purity reveals the truth,

the things that are, “the what it is”

I can stand and a new day begins

I have to believe it was all meant to be

 

Those days are over

Sorrow is gone

I will grow older

Knowing that all that I’ve done

Never turned to dust

THE DARKEST DAYS

 

It's been the darkest days

The darker side of me

The part I try my best to hide

From everyone that's near

 

The hands so used to showing

Somebody else's flaws

Hold the same fingers pointing towards me

Three times more

 

The pain is unbearable

The fear inconceivable

The will to leave it all is unbelievable

 

The darkest of nights

Show the brightest of stars

I will let them guide my way

(Please take me from this dark place)

The coldest of daybreaks will

Bathe me in sunlight

And hold me in a warm embrace that

Fills me in with light and sets me free

 

The strength inside my soul

Cornered somewhere I can't reach out

I hear that I must go

Will I ever do this somehow

 

Stare at nothingness

The void that's filled me in

No whos, or hows or wheres

No craves upon my dreams

 

The only way out is to dive all the way in

The only way out is to dive all the way in

 

The darkest of nights

Show the brightest of stars

I will let them guide my way

(Please take me from this dark place)

The coldest of daybreaks will

Bathe me in sunlight

And hold me in a warm embrace that

Fills me in with light and sets me free
