Deep

Feel my heart burning
Deep inside yearning
I know it is coming

A fettered heart, waking
A tainted youth, fading
Leave it all behind
Delirious again
Mesmerise my senses
Our souls entwine one more time

All our times will come
Certain oblivion
Leaving nothing but the memories of
All the things you give
They're all you'll leave behind

Open laughter held in distant days
(how those) Eternal stars have changed
I know that it can't be the same
But there is no lament for you tonight

Feel my heart burning
Deep inside yearning
I know it is coming

And time recedes every day
You can scour your soul but you won't see
As we pass ever on and away
Towards some blank infinity


Pitiless

Is it the emptiest of
All your broken hearted feelings
A serious misconception
To choose a path that led to ruin

I live for today
Can't get away from the burning inside
Ashes to ash
Dust to dust

So quick to point the finger
When you're the source of your condition
Why should I feel sympathy
When you only show me nothing

I live for today
Can't get away from the burning inside
Ashes to ash
Dust to dust

I could stare for a thousand years
Penetrate your deepest fears
Leave you cold with a faceless embrace
Then disappear without a trace


Forgotten Hopes

Hey you rotting in an alcoholic (empty) shell
Banging on the walls of your intoxicated mind
Do you ever wonder why you were left alone
As your heart grew colder
And finally turned to stone

Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping

Pathetic oblivion
Forgotten hopes burning in your soul's lonely grave
Pathetic oblivion
Remember how you were before you locked
Your heart away

Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping


Make it Right (F.F.S.)

I know that I want you
I know that I need you
But I can't pretend that
This'll make it right

You whisper your name
But I can't hear you
Don't leave me behind
Lend me your hand

I can feel them
I think they're closing in
Don't leave me behind
Lend me your hand

Let me feel you
By my side
Be where I can hear you
I long to feel


One Last Goodbye

How I needed you
How I grieve now youíre gone
In my dreams I see you
I awake so alone

I know you didnít want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you finally gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent, peaceful night
You took my heart away and my being

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

I still feel the pain
I still feel your arms

And somehow I knew you could never never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a silent, peaceful night
You took my heart away
Oh I wish, I wish you could have stayed


Parisienne Moonlight

I feel I know you
I don't know how
I don't know why
I see you feel for me
You cried with me
You would die for me

I know I need you
I want you
To be free of all the pain
You have inside
You cannot hide
I know you tried
To be who you couldn't be
You tried to see inside of me

And now I'm leaving you
I don't want to go
Away from you

Please try to understand
Take my hand
Be free of all the pain
You hold inside
You cannot hide
I know you tried
To feel


Judgement

Asleep is the rose, in tired innocence dreaming time away. Secure in the comfort of slumbers faint
embrace. Blissfully ignorant, unaware of the imminence.
Recurring memories emerge from the deep of old secrets unforgotten sleep. They sink beneath the
surface just long enough for you to breathe. Then return to choke you when you wake up alone.
Shredded inside there's one place left to turn. A long-term problem, a temporary remedy, but fuck it all
anyway you can pretend to be happy.
So many years of pathetic lies, empty promises and unfulfilled dreams are scattered like dust into the
winds. Looking for the sun that eclipsed behind black feathered wings. Tomorrow never comes, there
was only ever one day but now it's too late.

The inequity of fate
The pains of love and hate
The heart-sick memories
That brought you to your knees

And the times when we were young
When life seemed so long
Day after day
You burned it all away

All the hate that feeds your needs
All the sickness you conceive
All the horror you create
Will bring you to your knees


Don't Look too Far

If I begin to feel lighter
Hold me down
And I'll be yours for evermore

God bless this mess I'm in
For it is time
To be rid of a certain sin

A cool breeze down my spine
And if I'm really here
Then I feel fine

A freelance child
You bring it all back
This world is eating me inside

Don't look too far

Missing a degree of warmth
A name without a face
I'm losing grip all the same

I sever the line that divides
I sever the feelings inside
I sever between you and me

And I want to learn to fly
Bring the pain right back again
IOs this all there is of me

Hearts and minds, find the time
That in the end there was
No possible reason for anything


Emotional Winter

Speak to me
For I have seen
Your waning smile
Your scars concealed
So far from home, do you know you're not alone
Sleep tonight
Sweet summerlight
Scattered yesterdays, the past is far away

How far time passed by
The transience of life

Those wasted moments won't return
And we will never feel again

Beyond my dreams
Ever with me
You flash before my eyes, a final fading sigh
But the sun will (always) rise
And tears will dry
Of all that is to come, the dream has just
begun

And time is speeding by
The transience of life

Those wasted moments won't return
And we will never feel again


Wings of God

No one can find me
Here in my soul
Kicking and screaming
Out of control

Calm myself down
Nobody knows
No one can find me
Here in my soul

Hooked on your problems
Do I know why
And if you come my way again
Would I lend a hand
Would I understand

Solitude was never seen as loneliness
And things need time
And time leads to other things
And playing roles
Which are limited
By the poor fund of knowledge
In this sick, sick world
We all fall down
Once in a while
Escaping the law of unexplained pains


Anyone, Anywhere

No one seems to care anymore
(as) I wander through this night all alone
No one feels the pain I have inside
Looking at this world through my eyes

No one really cares where I go
Searching to feel warmth forever more
The wheels of life they turn without me
Now you are gone eternally

No
Don't leave me here
The dream carries (me) on
Inside
I know
It's not too late
Lost moments blown away
Tonight

Mankind, with your heresy
Can't you see that this is killing me
There's no one in this life
To be here with me at my side

Review



First of all, let me tell you that I don't think this is a bad cd. It's very nice to listen to, very relaxed. I think the new fans of Anathema will like it very much. And that the old fans will be disappointed. Their music style has continued the change from Alternative 4: The last remains of a grunt are gone, there is more acoustic guitar and the songs are even slower. It's just less metal and more rock. Still, a very nice cd but I'm on the lookout for a new favourite band...
