Elegies lyrics by Machine Men

1. Falling

Elegies - Falling The massacre of angels in heaven has begun The black clouds are moving, covering the sun Screaming and torture as an echo in the wind Satan has his lust and the last sun Jesus is next, deceived once again Nails are heavy, faith won't kill the pain The whole world is falling down with hate Now the god has taken the part of Judas Broke the ten commandments and sold the crown in shame As a slave crawls like us, with a number, no name Madness is the name of this absurd game There's the son of god hanging once again Surrounded by the flames of hell The whole world is falling down with hate The good ones will take it to their graves Third day is not for resurrection at all So the tale won't be the same anymore The whole world is falling down with hate The good ones will take it to their graves The whole world is falling down with hate The good ones will take it to their graves

2. Dream & Religion

Elegies - Dream & Religion Lost in the crush under the rain Alone in this world unknown Looking for a way back home trying to forget this pain - drifted too far away, boat's too rusted to sail Standing on the edge - to the edge they return Waiting for an angel with the answer To take him under her wings for a moment But he is too deep in the darkness, Where light does not reach and the angels don't seek Soul searching sun but hand for a gun to end his days I have my dream to keep me alive Religion I sold my soul to I have my dream to keep me alive Religion I sold my soul to I have my dream to keep me alive Religion I sold my soul to I have my dream to keep me alive Religion I sold my soul to I have my dream to keep me alive Religion I sold my soul to I have my dream to keep me alive Religion I sold my soul to

3. Apathy

Elegies - Apathy Trapped inside his mind Dying spirit cries shackled inside the dead man The fallen angels try to fly - looking for Brothers and sisters from their sanctuaries Sinister regret, thoughts about the end of the world Will never leave his head. The messenger is lost, too much pain it costs If he looses control on the edge of this earth And one of the freaks of society, pretending sane deep in the apathy Pilgrim's heart is cold, funeral of his soul celebrated a long time ago Cyclone in his mind, he is already blind To see the truth and future under the shell of the man, Rage is rising and no one knows But the eyes can only tell what is going on And one of the freaks of society, pretending sane deep in the apathy Pilgrim's heart is cold, funeral of his soul celebrated a long time ago On the way to the tomb, drowning his sorrow with his demons Who are mocking and spitting his eye but one thing we know for sure God had his day off when this man was lost into the world And one of the freaks of society Pretending sane deep in the apathy Pilgrim's heart is cold funeral of his soul celebrated a long time ago

4. Back From The Days

Elegies - Back From The Days Do we ever give any thoughts for the heroes of our days Who fought for freedom and future Prayed in the dark - and rain at night washed their tears away Saved a wounded man, turned towards the bullet rain And took the last step on our free land Souls are gone - in the unknown graves, who brings them back from the days? Left in the past with other braves - fought for us, against fear, the machines We don't know how it feels to be hand in hand with death Guns blazed on the enemy line, smoke filled the sky He knew for sure there was someone else Who watched the moon but not through the dust and smoke Far away from battlefields praying for a wish, Gazing up to the stars Souls are gone - in the unknown graves, who brings them back from the days? Left in the past with other braves - fought for us, against fear, the machines We don't know how it feels to be hand in hand with death The whisper beyond the grave in her dream - Save your tears and your worst fear Souls are gone - in the unknown graves, who brings them back from the days? Left in the past with other braves - fought for us, against fear, the machines We don't know how it feels to be hand in hand with death

5. The Traitor

Elegies - The Traitor Your sky is crying for someone, clouds hanging low And god plays sad and innocent for drowning men in tears of sorrow I think he's enjoying the people's worry And laughing for the whole tragic story Pointing down like a king to slaves, Ending lives, sending them to their graves But when ashes are scattered and wind taken his own - It took a little piece to the gates, Into the timeless place, far away from there Where some stranger has commited a sin And stolen a breath in the night, it happens again. And why do all the good ones meet their fate too soon? If god's deciding who's breathing and who is not Take them to your room - All the dregs of society and end their days, send them to eternity I hate to see the news everyday How some child was born to die, in vain But when ashes are scattered and wind taken his own - It took a little piece to the gates, Into the timeless place, far away from there Where some stranger has commited a sin And stolen a breath in the night, it happens again.

6. October

Elegies - October Suddenly from the light of life to the darkness, swallowing pride and joy On the wave of my thoughts sailing lost and cold - this lonely boy Sinking to his inner world leaving this earth million miles behind Crossing the borderline, time is not running on this side, not on this side Night brings vapour where the spirits move I'm alone with the echoes I've sailed the sea of loneliness drifting in timelessness Crossed the ocean, been at the mercy of the waves Seen the beauty of dawn, admired it after storm Felt the joy of rebirth and could smile again Crawling back to the land of the living from silence of the tomb But the black clouds return, leaving pale and fragile - this broken man Night brings vapour where the spirits move I'm alone with the echoes I've sailed the sea of loneliness drifting in timelessness Crossed the ocean, been at the mercy of the waves Seen the beauty of dawn, admired it after storm Felt the joy of rebirth and could smile again

7. Daytime Theatre

Elegies - Daytime Theatre Night has fallen killing joy and light The doors are locked keeping the fear inside Apprentices preparing for a bedtime story Saying their prayers, making the sign of the cross Kneels down to pray for better days Eyes shut he's searching for peace of mind Beneath the eyes of gold Lust getting loose changing the tears into blood In these holy rooms, Current of sin raging, trembling walls and windows The screams feel silent wiping the tears from their eyes The demons crawled back to the place where they arose The morning came bringing light and glory But the devil dances again when the night is falling Beneath the eyes of gold Lust getting loose changing the tears into blood In these holy rooms, Current of sin raging, trembling walls and windows And sun is up again, daytime theatre for believers But when curtain falls and candlelight gives up to the wind The whole underworld rises

8. Doors Of Resurrection

Elegies - Doors Of Resurrection She's standing at the gates with a one way ticket to the other side, Empty gaze in her eyes. No kiss goodbye at all. A suitcase full of memories of the past And three little words unsaid - and why? For some crime she did not commit before she died? For little sins she did not confess in daylight? A bench rusted by tears reminds her of sad years Of a dark world and familiar faces She's waiting for the ride, the riders of the last day Who are taking her to the doors of resurrection - and why? For some crime she did not commit before she died? For little sins she did not confess in daylight? She's leaving this world... For some crime she did not commit before she died? For little sins she did not confess in daylight?

9. From Sunrise To Sunset

Elegies - From Sunrise To Sunset My last sunrise, no more sunsets for me I can bury my good heart with relief, I'm free I can smile, taste the tear drop from my eye Waiting for the breath of wind to give wings for my soul I have a feeling, this is my day. Caressing shine and rain. Farewell, this life couldn't last My heart is weak, the reason is not far to seek The dream of the end Before the joruney begins cold enters the room, Then give me the last dance with death My breathing is heavy, soul reaching for the sky I've nothing to lose, everything is inside me Golden memories make me feel alright Waiting for the moment when my love is by my side The dream of the end Before the joruney begins cold enters the room, Then give me the last dance with death My last sunrise, no more sunsets for me I can bury my good heart with relief, I'm free I can smile, taste the tear drop from my eye Waiting for the breath of wind to give wings for my soul The dream of the end Before the joruney begins cold enters the room, Then give me the last dance with death
