nothing left to say lyrics – fates warning

i remember the endless longing
that called inside of me
from fountains of expression
trying to break free

nothing left to say
when the walls give way

still i can faintly recall
the subtle purity
of youthfull inspiration
and insecurity

nothing left to say
when the child finds his way

pride and the drive that started the dream
turned in time to an endless obsession
caught in a vicious circle of compulsion
possessed by the goal and the possession

desires bind the truth to secrecy
but behind the aspirations i see
a life devoted to blind ambition
and a mortal man searching for eternity

behind the desires
and the wall that gave way
there’s a forgotten cause
consumed by the day

behind the ambitions
of a child who found his way
there’s a cold realization
that our deeds die with the day
and behind the disguise
of a man with a cause
there’s a child screaming
with nothing left to say

paralyzed by inhibitions
and indecisions
what once was a release
is now a prison

fates warning is: ray alder lead and backing vocals
jim matheos guitars
frank aresti guitars and backing vocals
joe dibiase b*ss
mark zonder acoustic and electronic drums
