lirik lagu the empress – through the looking glass – dreams of sanity
a distant whisper touched my sleep – a longing for the reason
before my spell will set you free – meet me again so bitter sweet.
the springtime’s all renewing lights
unvailed to me a crawling ant
as unimportant as it seemed
still lit worlds noone could see.
days p-ssed years my gaze remained on glimpses of this tiny life
it cannot be – no never no – not human –
so low and imprisoned in its time.
so shall i break the ancient rule?
shall shame fall on untroubled life?
am i the first to take this step?
risk all i have for what i only feel?
i swung my cape over your body
my silverish sting scratched your heart.
“on behalf of love” i screamed – you died.
and left the vail on shadow’s ground.
in coming minutes – years or lives
i drank forbidden wine alot
looks – dreams and all was tempting me
to drain too much; still wanting more.
so dazzled as it left me standing
amidst those sunshine thunderstorms
so unprepeared i was and wondered
forgot that things can have a heart.
the times we had were only mine
my will unbeaten in the skies
broke shattered by this tiny plant
i picked from a rocky-water-ball.
so shall i rhyme this ancient spell?
shall lips form these forgotten words?
save the p-wn to lose the queen?
wake the fool and fool myself?
divide us now my ancient spell
take memory from this chosen one
i envy you: for you a dream
for me the ever lasting pain.
the empress so everhigh
will wander spheres – can never die
the ant will crawl untouched by those
just stand under – not understand – at all.
hast thou seen this looking g-ss of her’s.
she found though no one forced this step?
are you willing to play your part?
or shallst in darkness fall again?
i have not seen – yet have i felt
the looking-gl-ss that broke the spell
i join again to fit my part.
and play “the game” until the end.
