AVANTASIA lyrics - Savior In The Clockwork

AVANTASIA
"Savior In The Clockwork"

[Science:]
I envision how you lie awake and agonize
Over ways to bear your day just every night
Re-alignment you're in need of so imploringly
It's the pace that we'll maintain for you

Oh every moment everybody's gonna think alike
Every second will be seized
While every in between we'll erase
To take the tangle from their memory
Maximizing one and all for you

Now into line bring them peace of mind
Mind by mind
Se the pace for all mankind
Let us take away the spaces
In between their given time

[Blackwell:]
Time to run!
Savior in the clockwork tell me
For how long will I wait on the grind?
Time flies on
Time will fly on
Savior in the clockwork take me back inside
In between the time

Now am I half asleep or half unconscious,
Half 'adream'?
I can't move as I am stuck in bright lucidity
I can feel and hear and see
But I won't comprehend
I see fire that I won't decipher

I see giant evil tower to the blackened sky
I feel blessed with evidence of what I can't define
Swinging blade of the lowering perpendicular
I see clarity I won't remember

Do I dream?
Is it only fantasy and matter just a thought I see?
And time is all they need to steal away eternity

Time to run!
Savior in the clockwork tell me
For how long will I wait on the grind?
Time flies on
(Time will fly on)
Savior in the clockwork take me back inside
In between the time

[Reason:]
You pry into a world too far above
Your head up in the haze
[Blackwell:]
Journey to the birth of the first sun
Into the black womb of space
[Reason:]
Father primal space, oh yeah
Who's drawn the light...

[Blackwell:]
Standing at the door to epiphanic realization
A journey to the centre of forever
To the mystery of creation

[Reason:]
Don't you hear the voice: I'm with you
I'm everywhere and real
You can see me, you can hear me without credence
I'm what your hands can feel

[Blackwell:]
God, I feel I've been away too long
I feel like I've been dreaming

[Reason:]
If you'd open up your door to explanation
You would hear the voice of reason screaming

[Blackwell:]
I've seen the ocean swallow the ancient harmony
[Reason:]
And I've seen belief and craving swallow sanity

[Blackwell:]
I feel my hand is led to ink between the lines
[Reason:]
Tall stories legendizing: figments of the lie

[Blackwell:]
At crack of dawn hazy remains above my mind
[Antiquarian:]
Raise your mind
[Blackwell:]
I scribble down those icons that I can't define
Will they demand account as I'd demand myself
[Antiquarian:]
Raise your mind
[Blackwell:]
I'll never testify what no man comprehends

[Antiquarian:]
And they will tear to pieces what they can't define
[Blackwell:]
Raise your mind
[Reason:]
If you don't follow your self- preservation drive
[Antiquarian:]
They'll crucify the one who won't affiliate
[Blackwell:]
Raise your mind
[Reason:]
But decorate the children of their own ego's way

[Reason:]
Time to run savior in the clockwork
[Blackwell:]
Tell me for how long will I wait on the grind?
[Reason:]
Time flies on
Time will fly on
Savior in the clockwork

[Blackwell:]
Take me back inside
In between the time
Time to run!
Savior in the clockwork tell me
For how long will I wait on the grind?
Time flies on
Time will fly on
Savior in the clockwork take me back inside
In between the time
