Fates Warning - Epitaph Lyrics




Isolation freezes my life, coldness grips my heart
Trapped within a world, a world apart
Desolate am I, a tempest raging silently
Lost a barren soul adrift at sea

Catatonic state, it sharpens life's depressing edge
The clamor draws me closer to the ledge
As I gaze upon this burning world I curse this life
A life through which I'm hurled

Lies, lies upon this side
And that truthless violence deception mourned by the wise
Thousands of voices drowning out his own
In a popular torrent of lies upon lies turn to stone

So intense the pain that has crawled
From the bleeding corpse of pleasure
That feeds the worm the writhes inside my brain
In the deep of night it stirs again
In the heart of the sleeper
From the crack of dawn
I wake to curse the rising of the sun
Every life is built on hope
Now my dreams have surely passed
Inner voices haunt my numbered days
Darkness calls me with her laughs

Torn between life and death, inertia fills my soul
No will to be, no pride to care, reapers take your toll

Strangers cast a menacing glance as existence I defy
Shatter their dream like world I'm not afraid to die

Omen bird soars the desert land
To the castle of idolence, there lies the shadow of a man
See the colored flowers and marble towers
They fade to brown
Like the unknown inscribed in stone
He's abandoned, abandoned flesh and bones
He's lost in silence swallowed in vastness
Drowned in the depths of a meaningless
Past

    Isolation freezes my life, coldness grips my heart
    Trapped within a world, a world apart.
    Desolate am I, a tempest raging silently.
    Lost a barren soul adrift at sea.

    Catatonic state, it sharpens life's depressing edge
    The clamor draws me closer to the ledge
    As I gaze upon this burning world I curse this life.
    A life through which I'm hurled

    Lies, lies upon this side and that
    Truthless violence deception mourned by the wise.
    Thousands of voices drowning out his own
    In a popular torrent of lies upon lies
    Turn to stone.

    So intense the pain that has crawled
    From the bleeding corpse of pleasure.
    That feeds the worm the writhes
    Inside my brain.
    In the deep of night it stirs again
    In the heart of the sleeper,
    From the crack of dawn I wake to curse
    The rising of the sun.
    Every life is built on hope
    Now my dreams have surely passed,
    Inner voices haunt my numbered days
    Darkness calls me with her laughs

    Torn between life and death inertia
    Fills my soul.
    No will to be nor pride to care
    Reapers take your toll.

    Strangers cast a menacing glance as
    Existence I defy.
    Shatter their dream like world I'm not
    Afraid to die

    Omen bird soars the desert land to the castle
    Of idolence, there lies the shadow of a man.
    See the colored flowers and marble towers
    They fade to brown
    Like the unknown inscribed in stone
    He's abandoned, abandoned flesh and bones
    He's lost in silence swallowed in vastness
    Drowned in the depths of a meaningless
    Past

    Isolation freezes my life, coldness grips my heart
    Trapped within a world, a world apart
    Desolate am I, a tempest raging silently
    Lost a-barren, adrift at sea
    Catatonic state, it sharpens life's depressing edge
    The clamor draws me closer to the ledge
    As I gaze upon this burning world, I curse this life
    A life through which I'm hurled
    Lies, lies upon this side and that
    Truthless violence, deception, mourned by the wise
    Thousands of voices drowning out his own
    In a popular torrent of lies upon lies
    Turn to stone
    So intense the pain that has crawled
    From the bleeding corpse of pleasure
    That feeds the worm the writhes
    Inside my brain
    In the deep of night it stirs again
    In the heart of the sleeper
    From the crack of dawn I wake to curse
    The rising of the sun
    Every life is built on hope
    Now my dreams have surely passed
    Inner voices haunt my numbered days
    Darkness calls me with her laughs
    Torn between life and death inertia
    Fills my soul
    No will to be nor pride to care

    Shatter their dream like world I'm not

    Of idolence, there lies the shadow of a man
    See the colored flowers and marble towers
    They fade to brown
    Like the unknown inscribed in stone
    He's abandoned, abandoned flesh and bones
    He's lost in silence, swallowed in vastness
    Drowned in the depths of a meaningless
    Past

    Sounds like there's a fight in the beginning

    The beginning of your comment sounds like you're an idiot... same goes for the rest of it!

  6. chris purse

    One of their best songs ever. Watch the interview with Arch and Matheos. They say that same thing.

  7. Fernando Sanchez

    Hell yeah
