DARK TRANQUILLITY LYRICS

1. The New Build


A human force stronger than logic
Beyond the focus and the grander ideas
One microcosmos in this wretched piece of hell
Distant memories of what empathy we felt

No revolution
No revolution in what they must overthrow
In on a secret we all know
The need that is our enemy

I don't even want to see you
Doing all the same things as me
Don't ever let this be you
Knowing what it is that drives me

It's all in the future
Said with one foot in the grave
It's all in the plan of what we never could achieve

No satisfaction
No satisfaction

We excuse ourselves from progress by post-altering our motives
Stories set to match

Whatever beat that drives the impulse
Whatever tune that carries through
What's in a soul that rattles empty
In this one reality, too few

Our reach is never wider, ah
Than the depth of what we grasp

A vicious curse on all that we partake inside the conflict
Where no one is the wiser, yeah, the wiser

A space invaded
A face evaded
My space invaded
My space invaded

Selfish doesn't begin to cover the sense
In this utopia of one to escape the argument
To put another filter on

I don't even want to see you
Doing all the same things as me
Don't ever let this be you
Knowing what it is that drives me


2. Through Smudged Lenses


Let no one be themselves

Turn of the century lies
Not within the others
Turn on the watchful eye
The blindness ends tonight

Shelter for the shattered
In unison we strive
Dare to disassociate
And cut the binds that tie

Abstractualize further
To the ends of facts and foe
Will it out of meaning
As silence speaks the truth

I want to hear your scream

I want to see you stand
Atop the pantheon of fiction
And your failure
Grasping for a hiding place
Among indifferent stones

A brief reflection
It sets the soul apart
No selection
It tears our world apart

These walls are protecting us
Burn them to the ground
This haven of refuge
Burn it to the ground

So smudge the lens a little
Muffle the voice
Phase out of sound a while
And let it go

Citizens of choice
In a twilight world of your design
Left to our devices
We stumble on

I want to hear your scream
I want to hear your scream

[Solo]

Burn it to the ground
No firewall will save you
Burn it to the ground

Take me to the keep
And bare the darkest void
Thousand fold the agony
Of silenced screams alone

Tune right out of static
Exorcise the dark
How else can we move on

I want to hear your scream
I want to see you die!


3. Out Of Nothing


Make enemies of truth and reason
In that a rage is born
Start out a promise and a venture
Where direction was never the goal

How does it feel to run out of nothing?
Where do you go when you run out?

Never you mind the grand perspective
Other forces kept at bay
As you narrow the field of vision
To retain a sense of control
Your focus will remain unfixed
In the haze of a world unhinged

Create a sense of purpose
Around which you base your faith
The doubt that haunts your skin
An itch that will linger on forever

How does it feel to run out of nothing?
Where do you go when you run out?

You wave off critique as an offender
Never question where your motives lie
As a part of the greatest fable
The beast all had forgotten
Instincts in a dead end rampage
Destruction as a saving grace

You run out of nothing

[Solo]

How does it feel to run out of nothing?
Where do you go when you run out?

How does it feel to run out of nothing?
Where do you go?
Where do you go?


4. The Endless Feed


You try to hide the fact
Hidden from yourself
Your own favourite entertainer
Is none other than the one we call you
And you need the others to fortify your disgust for the worst of us
To the rest of us

Now, entertain the thought that we are still alive
Entertain the notion of impending doom
Entertain our worst suspicions and our fears
Just pull us in and take us down

I hear a mighty cheer
Your faith could not be any stronger
In your head the stage is set
A product of what we're being fed
Oblivious by design
Not susceptible to any mind

Entertain the thought that we are still alive
Entertain the notion of impending doom
Entertain our worst suspicions and our fears
Just pull us in and take us down

I can take what's being given
I can down whatever comes
I will do what you deem necessary

My fear compels me
My fear compels me

No more fictitious needs
I will not be made a mockery
No more chaos seed
I am not what you're supposed to see

No
Without a sense of danger
Everything is lost
In the name of entertainment
We are doomed

Entertain the thought that we are still alive
Entertain the notion of impending doom
Entertain our worst suspicions and our fears
Just pull us in and take us down


5. Lost To Apathy


The unsaid tone of weak despair
Fail to resonate
Frayed ends of our binding
Threads will disintegrate

Now
By laws our physiques state
Failure to communicate
None too sentient
Hear no, see no works its magic
Against all function

Ongoing choices the trials will end
Filter the nonsense and laugh at what's left
Indecision / nonvision
What matters taken away

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to apathy

So overcome with pointless tears
To test pain receptors
Nothing matters ever here
Put up a non-reaction

These eyes will never see
Covered up from reality

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to apathy

[Solo]

The unknown world that you deny
No priority
Cannot fail if you never start
How predictable

I want to know where did it end
For madness to start
Always the skeptic
And never be part

Introvertive
Non-descriptive
It matters not
Not

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak

We areā€¦

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to apathy

The shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Now the battle is over
Lost to apathy


6. Mind Matters


You are all that matters in my private demonology

Those who fail us now
The sons of wishes
The bastard child of dream
Enemies of hope

Let it be gone
It's all pretend

Mind matters, matters not

Never again
In perfect clarity
See the day in childlike vision

Where does it lead from here?
On without that guidance
Disaster role model without a part
Our search is wider

Cast off those wide-eyed hopes and dreams

Mind matters, matters not

No need to see you there
The path we made is clear
Just stay ahead of me
This is not for me to see

Mind matters, matters not

This time a prayer onto nothing
Project again
Direct oppose to action

All across the board
Shortcomings close to call
Let it be gone
It's all pretend

Mind matters, matters not


7. One Thought


Insufficient facts make up for frail foundation
Breeding the obscene for the opinion
Customized insight null and substance void
Upon these wheels our world will roll
Let it be decided
Let it be decided

Who will take the blame?
Another soul to drain
What is it that we see?
What is it that we see?

One thought bringing it down
Original sinners
One thought bringing it down
Switch it off

Has it come to this?
Enjoying things by proxy
Live through others
Die just like the rest
We all end up screaming a little louder
To cover up another piece of silence

Just scream a little louder, yeah

Punch another hole through media
Turn it off

One thought bringing it down
Original sinners
One thought bringing it down
Switch it off

Brace for impact to a once greater vision
Our lives now stand to fall

Tyranny of fear a stranglehold on us
Stronger day by day
It's time to turn it off

One thought bringing it down
Original sinners
One thought bringing it down
Switch it off

Switch it off


8. Dry Run


It comes from all we're giving
In seemingly endless supply
As signals cross defiantly
Into this volatile mix

We charge
And the stubborn mind repeats the errors
To challenge our grounds
Either soar above
Or the detour takes you right back down now
To where no one wants to see
Misgivings in this starry night lights
Fill in the blanks that one will fall
To the haunts and horrors
To the haunts and horrors

Now there is nothing left
A mere shadow
When adrenaline runs dry
There is nothing there
An empty prop
When adrenaline runs dry

It gets you deep down low now
As they told you of the blazing heights
The stage from which the world is viewed
Is the mirror to shatter the image

The crypt he kept for hiding
Retreat from another attack
Pointlessly forgiving
A refuge in deceptive black

It works within the system and they won't understand
A lesser known deceiver will fool you even more

[Solo]

Now, now, now, now taunt the wasted
It's all about nothing
What to squeeze within the span of attention
Brought to ground
Let the chaos pass

That one will fail by the screams and terrors
By the screams and terrors

Now there is nothing left
A mere shadow
When adrenaline runs dry
Now there is nothing there
An empty prop
When adrenaline runs dry


9. Am I 1?


I grant to you
No privilege of person
No sense of self
Denial of choice

It wants out
So from all the little bits and pieces
A simple case of lost and found
A wicked new beginning
I don't ever want to see

It's the oldest trick in the book
Just like everything you always knew
Turned upon its very end
There's nothing left to be

I've got half a mind to say
All the things that bother me today

Yeah, you better check if it's me in that coffin of yours
Or just the one, yeah, the one you thought you knew

I am one
Who am I?
No character to be lost inside

A mind is hard to please
So wander aimlessly

Hands clenched in fists of rage
Concealed in frustration
There's a part of me that cannot deal
With the character I am forced to be

It's a thinly veiled plan to lay your world afoot
Lost in community
Blind in belonging

Is there really nothing more than this?
The emptiness remains
So put on your brave face
And take the plunge again

I am one
Who am I?
No character to be lost inside


10. Senses Tied


Riddled by the trappings of words that makes the edges blur
Here on the outskirts of sincerity
And pride stretched as far as words can reach
By the lure of higher meaning
There's something out there
Lost behind the power lines

It's all the same to me
It's all the same to me

Lost all faith in promises and deadlines closing in
Tired of deciphering the wayward strands of truth

I don't care
'Cause I can't feel
I don't know anymore

Sure we've had a good run
With vowels, nouns, and letters
But within its very nature the ability to distort
There's nothing in the words I hear that makes me want to take a stand
It has gone on for far too long
I chose to disengage

It's all the same to me
It's all the same to me

The ends of our conditioning to swallow
Take and like it
Rather keep me in the dark
Than look me in the eye and lie

I don't care
'Cause I can't feel
I don't know anymore

It's all the same things pulling us down
To senses gone I cheer
It's all these same things making us blind
There's nothing here for me

Hear it coming
Heading for you now

I can't even stand the tons of arrogance and denial on display
Here you are listless, left for deaf
Thinking about what standards we set in times of weary tongues
And ears that hear no end to it
Unwilling or unable
The difference left for times judgment

It's all the same to me
It's all the same to me

It passes on from wicked mouths
As victim takes on another role
New bold oppressor
Our teacher's product now stands tall

I don't care
'Cause I can't feel
I don't know anymore

It's all the same things pulling us down
To senses gone I cheer
It's all these same things making us blind
There's nothing here for me

Hear it coming
Heading for you now
Hear!


11. My Negation


It's all this reeking ego
Craves the sun to never set
Why do threads of anger never linger
Why does the ember turn to stone?

To where the longing goes in
With the sins of old
A face of nothing
To never see as blind as free

[Solo]

Everything I want is in the end of this
Everything I need will be the end of me

My negation
How will you know my name
And sense the danger coming?
My negation
How can you see my face?
What's to become of me?

Oh, the art of reduction
Stripped down through what seems defendable
Scaled to bare revisions
To stop making sense

Leveling pillars of towering fear
Rational instincts and insight to spare
End of falseness
End of grace

Everything I fear is in this failing
Nothing of what I am is in this end

My negation
How will you know my name
And sense the danger coming?
My negation
How can you see my face?
What's to become of me?

Will you know my name?
