DARK TRANQUILLITY LYRICS

1. Encircled


I see myself
In the bodies being carried out
I see myself in you
When safety falls again
It broke something essential
Like nothing ever would
A promise to give
A promise to hold

This is not what I want to hear right now
But our time is running out
So far removed from what you need to know
Words too hard to handle
Our time is running out
We're by demons encircled

Eroding away at reason
The bile of insecurity
This fear devoid of nuance
And fact resistant belief
I hold together what I can
I hold together what I know

This is not what I want to hear right now
But our time is running out
So far removed from what you need to know
Words too hard to handle
Our time is running out
We're by demons encircled

These are just symptoms of experience and life
I wish I could postpone

It eats at our logic
Like nothing ever should
It claws at our humanity
So that nothing can remain
This is the currency of faith
And we are coming up short
The reality of failure
Now upon us

This is not what I want to hear right now
But our time is running out
So far removed from what you need to know
Words too hard to handle
Our time is running out
By demons encircled


2. Atoma


I will not play along
With things I find unfair
I will not mount defences
Against unjust attacks
This land was never given
We built this on our own
It is sanity dependent
Whether we rise or fall

Whether we rise or we fall
One for the night
One for uncontrol

Hold your feet to the ground
To the end of our time for the rest of our lives
Hold your head up high
To the end of our time for the rest of our lives

Secretly I hope
That nothing ever comes of this
And you are not alone
In wanting to come back
To a place where it won't matter
Just what side you're on
It's when our lives are branded
What's underneath will overcome

What's underneath will overcome
One for the night one for the uncontrol

Hold your feet to the ground
To the end of our time for the rest of our lives
Hold your head up high
To the end of our time for the rest of our lives

Now it's time to stand up tall
One for the night
One for the uncontrol

Hold your feet to the ground
To the end of our time for the rest of our lives
Hold your head up high
To the end of our time for the rest of our lives


3. Forward Momentum


We worry about echoes
While we are being held back
By the speed of light

This is the time of no regret
in a forward momentum race
We leave in our wake
What is broken, forgotten and old

I squint my eyes
As if to make
my sight extended
a little further

This is the time of no regret
in a forward momentum race
We leave in our wake
what is broken and forgotten

The dream is nothing
yet it drives us to the end
These words that force our hand
Hold on

In fear of true deception
Our lives are being brought back down

This is the time of no regret
in a forward momentum race
We leave in our wake
what is broken and forgotten


4. Neutrality


Much like the tension built between force and will
Stray voltage wanders from neutral to earth
Lest we forget to forgive the signals get crossed
These two grounded objects on the opposite side of

Right or wrong where empathy was once
Is not the end – this is the reasoning

I call you out so take it once and for all
The weight of the world on you
I call you out to claim neutrality

We failed our own reality on reality's terms
The less we know the more we forge
What suits our single-minded goals

It all comes down to this
A reverse polarity
In opposites we see what unity must be
Forever taking down the man-made walls of strife
Forever taking them down

I call you out so take it once and for all
The weight of the world on you
I call you out to be accountable today tomorrow
I call you out

There's nothing like the friction sound
The slow burn of prolonged frustration
Wearing down the jagged edges
To fit within the margins
The fires spread throughout the night

It must now go down to where it can begin
Inside and out I call you

I call you out so take it once and for all
The weight of the world on you
I call you out to claim neutrality
I call you out to be accountable today tomorrow


5. Force Of Hand


This is not a failure
This is not an end
These are just symptoms
Of a trajectory descent
Further down the line you hide
from the memories of unresolved
The struggle is lost

All this time of knowing
Letting piece by piece slip away
Cause when they're all against you
You fail

Don't you force my hand
Don't you force me

When the silence has spoken in this imminent storm
Taken to the nth degree where failure forms

Spiraling deception
Left the mindless drifting away
Cause when they're out to get you
You fail

Don't you force my hand
Don't you force me
All this time ends in nothing
These walls of doubt built into our minds
All this time signifying something
A victim without circumstance

All this time of knowing
Letting piece by piece slip away
Cause when they're all against you
You fail

Don't you force my hand
Don't you force me


6. Faithless By Default


To ends unknown
By means unworthy
To answer wishes
Long dead and gone
Old empty promises
A just reward for the blind
Belief makes work for idle minds
We lost our way

The only dream that matters
Is the one you wake up from

Go

Onward to the singularity
Whatever they say
Whatever they do just go
Turn on this nonentity
Whatever they say
Whatever they do just go
We are faithless by default

I call for a world where we are nothing
More than the sum of what we know
Are we to be held hostage
By our tolerance for the intolerant
Then we've lost our way

To hope is to surrender
In this series of defeats

Go

Onward to the singularity
Whatever they say
Whatever they do just go
Turn on this nonentity
Whatever they say
Whatever they do just go
We are faithless by default
We've lost our way
A pain far too familiar
Denounce your savage self

Go

Onward to the singularity
Whatever they say
Whatever they do just go
Turn on this nonentity
Whatever they say
Whatever they do just go
We are faithless by default


7. The Pitiless


Right now – right here
We stand alone
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone
Forever confounded by the broadening margins
Taken out of context and in to denial
Give in to ignorance and the world responds in kind
Put an end to the search and nullify this sense of life

Alone in silence
Yes I am frightened and so are you
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone

Against the ever-coming night
So we step back to reveal a new perspective
When the allure of our gift has worn off
Not the least bit curious when giant steps are made
No going back
Our time is running out

Alone in silence
Yes I am frightened and so are you
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone

Must we resort to "the end of all inquiry"
For this to make sense?
This to make sense
Right here – right now
We stand alone
Give up and recount them
The days of your life
Where truth was of essence
And time was alive
That is no incentive
To give in to the absurd
Reality and construct
Live forever to oppose
Forever opposed

Alone in silence
Yes I am frightened and so are you
Against pitiless indifference
We stand alone


8. Our Proof Of Life


At a certain point it happens
Life becomes too real
And nothing can hold back
What is about to be

I don't know
How close we need to get
To blind out the surroundings
And focus on the real

I know you're gone
But this reality
Is crashing down on me
Crashing down
To defeat all purpose
I know you're gone
I'm just not ready
I'm just not done
I am ever
In resistant disbelief

When raw emotion gets in
The way of our thoughts and words
We pass so far beyond our breaking point

I don't know how far we need to be
From all that we don't want to see
To regain perspective

I know you’re gone
But this reality
Is crashing down on me
Crashing down
To defeat all purpose
I know you’re gone
I'm just not ready
I'm just not done
I am ever
In resistant disbelief

I know
Yet I fail to find purpose and form
I know
But the truth just makes it harder

I know you’re gone
But this reality is crashing down on me
Crashing down
To defeat all purpose
I know you’re gone
I'm just not ready
I'm just not done
I am ever
In resistant disbelief


9. Clearing Skies


Our backs can never carry
These atrocities around
So we focus on what's safely within reach
To market our concerns
Inside this time and place
There is nothing more you can be to me
Bring out your fear
Bring out your death
Bring out your pain

For now we lie to ourselves to live
Sorrow will find you

You're the only one who knows
things I never say
And nothing can be done
Til skies are clear again
These are things we never talk about
So hear me out this time
I know one day this sorrow will find you

Let your heroes burn their crowns
You're better than this I know
This world can change the best of us
Sometimes for the worst
Sometimes for the ones we try to hold
The ones we hold on to
Bring out your fear
Bring out your death
for now we lie to ourselves to live
sorrow will find you
you're the only one who knows
things I never say
and nothing can be done
til skies are clear again
these are things we never talk about
so hear me out this time
I know one day this sorrow will find you


10. When The World Screams


Let the weakness set in
This world I know
Days cannot hold me
I blur in between
Never fully engaged
The mind races between words
As far as I can get
Away from it all

When indecision ends can life begin again

I am silence
When the world screams out
I am escape when you reach out to me
I am panic
I am fear behind these walls that protect me
I am failure and resistance
I am lost where I belong
I am silence when the world screams

My insecurity extends
To others talking about themselves
Fed with this poison of
Self righteous false confidence
It's in their eyes
It's in our lives

Set to the tune of darkness
This is one to hold
I cannot stop insanity
From chasing down my thoughts
Linger in the mind
For what now seems indefinite time
My mind is holding me down

When indecision ends can life begin again

I am silence
When the world screams out
I am escape when you reach out to me
I am panic
I am fear behind these walls that protect me
I am failure and resistance
I am lost where I belong
I am silence when the world screams


11. Merciless Fate


What if that image was taken
In an instant erased from the world
What if the truth is too far
And your reality can't cope with the distance
In the abstract a mind never challenged
Is the bearer of merciless fate

All you can feel
Is the loss of who you are
By force or by fire / flame
All you will know
Is the void of emptiness
By force or the flame
'Til reason prevails

When the doubt starts to creep in your mind
And subverts the true cause of your ways
You must remain a witness of merciless fate

All you can feel
Is the loss of who you are
By force or by fire / flame
All you will know
Is the void of emptiness
By force or the flame
All that you see is a darkness
From the outside looking in
All you can sense is surface tension
From a distance grasping at straws

All you can feel
Is the loss of who you are
It's not about you
All you will know
Is the void of emptiness
By force or the flame
This merciless fate


12. Caves And Embers


Despite what is out there burning
Our faces remain intact
We hear the screaming of the voiceless
Yet we are numb to the pain of others
We filter out the light
It never penetrates our blinding screens
We can take a stand

But in the end it all means nothing
We rage out but we are wasting away

From the roots below
To the boundless stars above
We are nothing at all

What separates us from the others
A difference in choices made
We take an insignificant stance
What would we do in an opinion vacuum
When left unaccountable
So here we are far from the world
Just wasting away

Doing nothing being nothing
We are the favoured design
And we're wasting away

From the caves and embers
To the heart of the beyond
We are nothing at all

Here we are doing nothing
Being nothing
We are wasting away

From the roots below
To the boundless stars above
We are nothing at all
Wasting away


13. The Absolute


[Bonus Track]

In every hour every day
This chosen solitude is gone
The pressure coursing
Through your every nerve
Will rise and fade away
There's madness to this method
Conformity now on display
When confidence become the enemy
In time our questions lose their meaning
Wish it away and it comes back to you somehow
A loneliness denied
Our shallow pool of wisdom
Reflects upon our innocent face
Between attacks of pure anxiety
You see humanity slip away
You force the lie to be an absolute
To where there will be no return
There is a face on the surface
I don't ever want to see
There is a light above the water
That is not supposed to be
If there is truth in this resistance
I don't ever want to know


14. Time Out Of Place


[Bonus Track]

It gets ahead of us
Blind ambition meets our desperation
It gets ahead of us
It leads a charge to where we should not go
It makes no sense to me
Our willingness to hold on to belief
It got away from us
The thought of understanding what's around
Have we gone too far this time?
To argue from authority in this case
It just got away
I feel we've lost our place in time
It's getting closer now
The fear that we have held off for so long
It's getting closer now
To where we know there can be no return
It makes no sense to me
What has been set in motion here today
It makes no sense anymore
Was it too little, too late
Or too much too fast?
This time we've gone too far
