Dark Lyrics


1. Spectres Of The Ascendant


2. Redemption

Oh no, what have we done?
Where do we go from here?
Oh... we see only sorrow and pain

Where is the light to guide us?
To help the children find their way?
Lay defeated and drowned by the rain

Oh, keep searching for the reason
The only way out
Is to search for the answer within

Oh - return from the cold and open your eyes
Redemption, arise
Oh - a spirit of gold, remember your pride
The hero inside... within us all...

So now, where do we go?
Blinded we search for the sun
Oh... who will shelter us all from the rain?

To find the will inside us
Reach for the dawn of an unclouded day
Now free from the sorrow and pain

Oh, no more staring back in anger
Release your true self
And let the renaissance begin...

[Repeat chorus]

[Solo: LT / Mark]

[Repeat first pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus x2]

3. 100 Reasons

The future's bright I tell you
Another perfect day
All our baggage packed we climb
Aboard this sinking ship
And so we sail...

Takes a second to say hello
And forever to say goodbye
Turn the cheek of a blind denial
Into another lie

Oh, playing out this masquerade
Hold on to the dream
How long can we travel down this road we made?
Go on alone and leave me far behind

I tell myself we're all okay
(I can) think of a hundred different reasons
For me to make you stay
I leave you now and go my way
To find a change of season
To help me get my feet back on the ground

Inside it's so frustrating
A heart wrapped in golden chain
Always searching for the rainbow
Always waiting in the rain

[Repeat pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus]

[Solo: LT]

[Repeat pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus out]

4. Eternal Storm

Vision born of dream-like lucid flames
Crimson light mastered by faceless names
Burning passion or a timeless force
Voices speak of shadows rising forth

Once were dreaming
Now are living
Feel the rain begin to pour
Hear the wind lift off and soar

Eternal storm
Restless souls
Eternal storm
Restless souls embrace the dying dawn

Nightmares destroying mortality
Creating dreamscape reality
Lost and forgotten our spirit sought
Forced upon us ways of lifeless thought

[Repeat pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus]

[Solo: Mark]

[Repeat chorus]

[Solo: Mark]

5. Set In Stone

Staring out beyond the shadows
To see a world of faces all the same
And find the light behind those darkened eyes
And realise the skies are more than grey

Got the hunger but we're wanting more
Forever reaching higher
Remember what we're fighting for
The writing on the wall is

Set In Stone
Set In Stone

Ghosts of the past now far behind me
Follow the path towards a brighter day
Now a fire lights inside those darkened eyes
Crucify the lies of yesterday

[Repeat pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus x 2]

[Solo: LT / LT / Mark / LT / Mark]

[Repeat pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus x 4 + ad libs]

6. Someone Else's Dream

On this dark road I tread
Of despair and regret
Some days you long to forget
Searching for the light

Taking life one step at a time
Walk a path that's only mine
Shit happens, a kick to the teeth
So look out for number one

Some say I'm just a selfish man
I say take hold of what you can
Learn to swim before you drown
Before life kicks you down

On the seas of life I sail
To find my way
And never to return
No self betrayal
I won't live my life
Living someone else's dream

Some may say this pain is just an illusion
Some say it's all in your mind
Life builds us up to be proud
Then cuts you down like an empty lie

Find yourself in this tunnel again
See the light: (is it) just another train?
Finding shelter from the endless rain
Sometimes you find yourself
Always asking why...

I drag myself to my feet
And take what's rightly mine

[Repeat chorus]

[Solo: Mark / LT]

[Repeat first and second verse]

[Repeat chorus]

7. Forever

I'd walk to the end of the world
I'd do anything
Just to see you, to be near you
Feel you close for a moment

And I'm lost in your eyes
Charmed by your sweet smile
Lips that beckon, I count the seconds
'Til I see you again...

Get to know you
Want to show you I care
I'll make you see how good we'd be
Together, so perfect

Feel so lonely
Oh, if only I could
Dare to meet you, touch you, but you
Don't even know I'm alive...

Together and never apart, my love
We were meant to be
And you'll always have my heart
Our love is forever

Tried to speak to you
Tried to meet you but you
Looked right through me, just ignored me
As if I was no one

Now my world's upside down
Is there someone else?
How can this be? You don't want me?
In my mind it's all so crystal clear

[Repeat chorus]

"I tried to show you that I care
That we were meant to be
But you don't want me
You were everything to me and I'm nothing to you
Well, if I can't have you, then... no one can."

[Solo: LT / Mark]

And now you lay here before me
In the pallid light
I have blood on my hands
Your face a mask of white

No respite for my memory
As I stumble and run
And my mind is in turmoil
What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE?!

I return to your side
And you lay there so beautiful, yet so still
I could almost believe you were sleeping

Can't bear this world without you
So clear what I have to do
The choice is made, I raise the blade
My love, I'll be with you soon

[Repeat chorus x 2]

8. Beyond The Light

A heart strong with fire
The measure that I aspire
Living your life abounding
Like few others do

Torn from this world premature
Lost to all those who cared
I'm left behind alone to find my way

Now I look to the skies
Memories: rising tides
I feel a part of me died
The day you went away

Gone to a place never known
Free of sadness and pain
Brotherhood, the memories still remain

So wherever, wherever you may be
I hope forever you'll be proud of me
So my brother, someday, I don't know when
One day, together we will meet again
Far beyond the light

[Solo: Mark]

And as time marches on
This heartache will always linger
I'll shed a tear for you
On those sleepless nights

No matter where I may roam
I feel your presence so near
Gives me strength to see tomorrow's dawn

[Repeat chorus]

9. The End Of Days

And so it goes
Two nations, single-minded hate
When treaties fail
Condemn the world, its ghastly fate

Of those who live
In troubled times, in terror's shroud
Always fear the worst
But never dare believe it's now

The time has come; it's the end of days
Our peaceful life: A ticking bomb
Our time has slipped away

And when there's nowhere to run
Fiery clouds of death that blanket the sun
And when the last war is "won"
No life remains, our world has turned to stone
And died in flames...

A grim demise
Black shockwaves herald toxic rain
And all who died
More fortunate than those who still remain

A tortured death
Blistered skin, the cancer grows
All lost, now feel the
Winter's kiss, ill winds blow

[Repeat pre-chorus & chorus]

[Solo: Mark / LT]

The course of time
History's path, a legacy of hate
All sense denied
Descending to the end we helped create

And nothing learned
We're tracing circles once again
As the planet burns
Ashes to the winds

[Repeat pre-chorus]

[Repeat chorus x2]

10. Be My Guest


11. New Horizons

Another city passes in the darkness
Another country come and gone
And on this never ending road I wander
Seems like I'm always on the run

[Chorus 1:]
So long ago
I chose this lonely road
To follow new horizons
So far to roam
A million miles from home
So many more to go...

In another life I could have been the everyman
Another tale untold for me
Cursed by the gypsy's kiss and driven onward
To reap the winds, forever free

[Chorus 2:]
So long ago
I chose this lonely road
To follow new horizons
So far to roam
But one thing I know
One day I'll find that road
That takes me home

[Solo: LT / Pete Lesperance]

Another plane, another train
Another thousand miles of road
And one more day, I'll find my way
Home to you...

Now I sit here waiting in the darkness
My thoughts a million miles away
Of all the things I've done, all the sights and wonder
Not one thing could make me stay (one more day)

[Repeat chorus 2 x2]

[Solo: LT]

12. On A Night Like This

[Kylie Minogue cover]

Don't, say, it's like a fantasy
When, you, know this is how it should be

You kiss me, I'm falling
Can you hear me calling
You touch me, I want you
Feels like I've always known you

On a night like this
I wanna stay forever, stay forever
On a night like this
Just wanna be together
On a night like this

Now, I'm, getting closer to you
Hold, me, I just can't be without you

You kiss me, I'm falling
It's your name I'm calling
You touch me, I want you
Feels like I've always known you


Seams I've known you a lifetime
Now it's time to make you mine
On a night like this...
