Event Horizon Lyrics

I. A ROAD NOT TAKEN 

Take heed, just ahead, comes a fork in the road
Stay a while, contemplate where to go, a choice must be made

Who knows what lies ahead - You fail to see where they will end
Make up your mind - A choice must be made



II. MASQUERADE


Brace yourself, her she comes now

Make sure, do not meet her gaze
'Cause she'll read you like a book

Stay out of sight - hope it will pass
You've spread yourself too thin

Close your eyes, think on your feet now
Though you think you hide it well
It is clear for all to see


Behind this masquerade
Wish you didn't feel this way
If she finds out - it will ruin everything
So hold your breath - and wait for it to pass

Why do you feel this way when you know it's bound to fail
It's long overdue, you should have let go before it got this far

(Still in denial, telling lies, facing truth is a bullet you won't dodge this time
No matter what you do, the game you're playing's rigged and soon you're about to lose
Hold your tongue, grit your teeth, perhaps with time the wound will bleed itself clean)


It is clear for all to see

Behind this masquerade
Wish you didn't feel this way
If she finds out - it will ruin everything
So hold your breath - and wait for it to pass

Still in denial, telling lies, facing truth is a bullet you won't dodge this time
No matter what you do, the game you're playing's rigged and soon you're about to lose
Hold your tongue, grit your teeth, perhaps with time the wound will bleed itself clean


III. Kindle

Come tread lightly, but keep your distance. And kindle the flame, from the embers.
Once the light shone, bright as a sun. Now there's only flickers.

I don't want to be in a place where all I do is searching for something I can hold on to
I've heard it all before, you don't know who's in these shoes
Like all from before, I will burn this bridge soon

Walk it off, get yourself together, I hear people say
So curse your intentions, your sayings and thoughts
Curse me for being here

It's so inconsequential. To me there's just a gaping void, prone to consume all. And it's pulling me in.
I'm still at the horizon feeling I can somehow change to whom I was before, many crossroads before

I don't want to be in a place where all I do is searching for something I can hold on to
I've heard it all before, you don't know who's in these shoes
Like all from before, I will burn this bridge soon




IV. INSIGHT

On a couch two souls are sitting quietly, hiding from the world
Saying words better left unspoken. Either way, the silence is the one who speaks the most
You hold my hand and you're talking softly, but I see. Your eyes tell me a story of their own

Perhaps with time, we can make it through 
But right now all I see is you

Telling tales with great conviction to break the mood, is not so easy with fate at the door
Try as we might to turn back time before the day everything turned upside down

Perhaps with time we can pull this through
But right now all I see is you

Spent so much time waiting at this crossroad
Choose where to go. And I can't decide

Still waiting here. I guess I'll always be
Only to find that every road is vile
And now I see. I got too close to you
Like Icarus, burned by the sun.

Please leave



V. TREAD

Now I am done choosing which way to go
I, I wonder what path the other way would go
'Cause now I'm bound here. Uneasy.
But it all seems better

With you

Though difficult, it's still so simple
The heart wants what it wants
And I'll strive to listen
But it's not enough, I'd unbind these chains if I could
But luckily I'm stuck

With you
