Scardust Lyrics album: "Strangers" (2020)

1. Overture for the Estranged Lyrics


Strangers we are
Craving distance, we walk too far
Please remind me
Why do we fall apart like strangers?

Strangers we are
This existence tears us apart
Please remind me
When did we let our hearts estrange us?

In the streets we pass each other by
(Far above us)
As towers scrape the sky

Strangers we are
Craving distance, we walk too far
Please remind me
Why do we fall apart like strangers?


2. Break the Ice Lyrics


In a corner street I am standing on my own
Time just froze around me and the city turned to stone
Strangers pass me by as I am falling to the ground
Wondering, will I be found?

I once ran forward to chase my goal
When the flame in my heart was burning
Now the cold came, and froze my soul (Froze her soul)
And my feet are stumbling (are stumbling, save her!)

Save me from this cold that can slice
(So cold it can slice)
Longing for you, come and break the ice
(Break the ice)
Only you can warm up the blue
(You warm up the blue)
Where are you? Where are you? Where are you?
Where are you?

Soggy eyes reflect the shine that shapes your silhouette
Come, approach, crack your way through this cold breeze of a threat
Then, like in a dream, I'll get the shivers from your warmth
You'll embrace me through the frost

I'll adore you, laugh or tears
Dear savior of frozen years
Through the concrete and the lies
You can hear my cries

Save me from this cold that can slice
(So cold it can slice)
Longing for you, come and break the ice
(Break the ice)
Only you can warm up the blue
(You warm up the blue)
Where are you? Where are you? Where are you?
Where are you?

(She once ran forward to chase her goal
While the flame in her heart was burning
Through the concrete and the lies
Only you can hear her cries)

You would break down the city walls
Rescue me from the tallest tower
You will weather stormy falls
'Til you bring the summer
Forever I'll enshrine you, savior of mine


3. Tantibus II Lyrics


I tamed the demon in my nightmare, just to realize
I woke up to a dim, grey world
And soon I closed my eyes

Once again in a dream I had it all
Standing tall
And now I fall into hibernation
The safety of my own creation

On to the fight
I run away to
Into the night
Where I prevail
Far in a place that I can't leave behind
On to the fight
I run away to
Into the night in every chance I can find
To close my eyes
So I only hear the silence in my mind

I am the beast, I am the nightmare, demon in disguise
A stranger in a world stranger than when I close my eyes
(Once again in a dream...)
Once again in a dream I had it all
Standing tall
That's why I fall
Into hibernation
The safety of my own creation

Onto the fight...

TANTIBUS
Sitting on your chest
TANTIBUS
Eating out your heart
TANTIBUS
Feed my soul to me

No one can tear us apart!


4. Stranger Lyrics


In a quiet night breeze you float, so real
Like a shadow of ethereal light
When I look through your eyes, your empty gaze shows me

Memories that I had
Of you that disappeared
Moments that we once shared
Take a wrong turn and feel stranger

I'm breaking down
In a quiet night's sleep
I'm left here to drown
Stranger
A dream long gone
Now I can't face the world on my own

In a breathtaking scene your voice still rings,
Keeps me asleep, yet awake
Souls have collided as flames were ignited,
Divided in one great mistake
When all was at stake

Memories that I had...

...I'm breaking down
In a quiet night's sleep
I'm left here to drown
Stranger
A dream long gone
Now I can't face the world on my own


5. Concrete Cages Lyrics


This is a page in the diary of a world that was chaos and void,
Before we came about

Predators roamed in the wild, we were fragile like a child,
Before we tamed the land

Many have died in their tries,
Many have looked into danger's eyes,
Wanting to survive

Others have cried in defeat,
But it's impossible to beat the will to stay alive
And keep the fire lit

Like a bird, we grew wings to glide
Building dams, we have turned the tide
Stopped abiding by nature’s ties
Now we rise beyond the skies
Will we bring our own demise?

In concrete cages
Writing history's pages
Throughout the ages
We all belong
In concrete cages
There's a fire that rages
And it's contagious
To move along

In concrete cages
The fire rages

This is a sign on the wall
Of a skyscraper standing tall
We have claimed it all.

Now we can shelter the weak
We can find anything that we seek
But we know if the land could speak
It would cry for it's barren and bleak
The earth is worn
We left it torn
I mourn
For all the souls unborn

Like a bird...

In concrete cages
Writing history's pages
Throughout the ages
We all belong
In concrete cages
There's a fire that rages
And it's contagious
To move along

In concrete cages
Throughout the ages
The fire rages
And it's contagious
In concrete cages...


6. Over Lyrics


Next to you I am small
You get to have it all
Power and full control
Over me

You're looking down at me
Deciding all alone
Who you want me to be
Over and over and over everyone you think you own
Forcing demands to put us in place
Ruling us from your precious throne
Never bothered to even see my face

Can't fight the anger
(Can't live this way, can't walk away!)
Can't free the chains
(Must I obey and act this way?)
Can't fight the anger
(Can't live this way, can't walk away!)
Can't free the chain...

Can't fight the anger
Can't free the chains
From far under

Speaking of infamy
Oh, you're the one to talk
When you're stepping on me
Over and over 'cause next to you I am small
You get to have it all
Power and full control
Corrupting your own soul

Can't fight the anger
(Can't live this way, can't walk away!)
Can't free the chains
(Must I obey and act this way?)
Can't fight the anger
(Can't live this way, can't walk away!)
Can't free the chain that binds everyone you think you own
Forcing demands to put us in place
Ruling us from your precious throne
Never bothered to even see my face

I never intended to be chained in your realm, if
I tried to run, you would overwhelm me
Infinite greed leads to limitless pain
You have taken all that was left to drain

Can't fight the anger…


7. Under Lyrics


(Burn the chain!)

Down
Here under your vile rule I'm bound
My freedom is nowhere to be found
Why can't I find a way out
Why won't you let me go
Now
I'm tied
By shackles that you have left to bind me
Trapped in your own self centered
Mind
You
I am not freezing anymore, for we lit a fire

(Burn the chain!)

From far under
We burn the chain
In your cold realm we will not remain
From far under
We burn the chain
To be set free once again!

From far under
We burn the chain
From far under
To be set free once again!

Above us cold-hearted in your spire
Now we have lit a raging fire
Heat rises higher
So beware, for our flame can burn
You
Are tied
By shackles that you've created
Bound to your own precious throne
You'll find
That now and forever
Stranger
I am the face you'll remember

(Burn the chain!)

From far under
We burn the chain
In your cold realm we will not remain
From far under
We burn the chain
To be set free once again!

From far under
We burn the chain
From far under
To be set free once again!

We never intended to be chained in your realm
But now, that you locked us in your jail
We became a troop, now we overwhelm
Though our wills collide we will prevail
On to the fight to burn your throne I
Don't have to face you on my own
(Never again)
Never again will we be bound to your will
'Cause we freed the chain and while you're standing still
We are rising up
From far under…


8. Huts Lyrics


Run away with me to way back when
We would walk outside, so innocent back then
Now we trapped ourselves within four walls
Sweating on a treadmill
Singing to empty halls
Like a bird in a gilded cage
Too tamed to feel the rage
Like a knife through a beating heart
This existence
Tears us apart

Wish we could live in wooden huts
The last alternative before my heart's door shuts
Wish we could live in wooden huts
Glow can deceive
But neon lights won't heal the cuts

Run away with me to way back when
We would push each other on a swing and sang in unison
Now we shove each other just to get in line
Trying to impress, to dress, to wine and dine
Like a bird in a gilded cage…

Once we were free like a butterfly (but we sold our wings)
But we sold our wings to rent a lie (in concrete cages)
Time to bid this concrete cage goodbye
Or let our passion fade and die

Wish we could live in wooden huts…


9. Gone Lyrics


Today I give it all
I would cross the ocean
To make your wishes come true

Tomorrow I'll be gone

Today I hear your call
Your will is my devotion
Every single moment but then

When midnight comes starts another day
Tomorrow I will be gone away

Today we dream together
Hand in hand we gather
Memories to pack when we go

Tomorrow I'll be gone

Today you dare not doubt
What future is about
What dreams will carry out

In dead of night shines another day
Tomorrow I will be on my way
Crossing a thousand seas
Towards over a million dreams

I will sail on my own from now on
Strangers we have become

Winds will hit my sails
Waves will push me forward
While I will fight the storm

Tomorrow I'll be gone

Some day they'll tell my tales
Of million dreams I pounced toward
And conquered on my own

When midnight comes starts another day
Tomorrow I will be gone away
In dead of night shines another day
Tomorrow I will be on my way
Crossing a thousand seas
Towards over a million dreams

I will sail
On my own
For now on...


10. Addicted Lyrics


You waste your days in vain
And wait for night to fall
To finally feast again
On the inner depths of your soul

Sipping wine from the veins of dreams
Running far from the choir of screams
Surrendering to the highs, the twists, the turns
Waking up with a dim, grey mind
'Til the quiet of night returns
Though the scenes leave you numb and blind
Your heart still yearns
To hide

You're falling deep into a trance
To leave the world behind
You run away in every chance
Addicted to your mind

Hours passing by, way deep into the night
Wishing that you'll come back home whenever you depart
Days of wait, and I am here, still holding tight
Every time you run away you're tearing us apart

Sipping wine from the veins of dreams…

You're falling deep into a trance...

Once again I hear you scream
Sipping wine from the veins of dreams
Wake up, see that I'm still here, all yours
Though the quiet of night returns
Don't be blind to the ones you leave behind
Confined
To what you have defined
As peace of mind


11. Mist Lyrics


Under colorless skies
I'm standing alone
Wondering why this street changed its tone
I am looking across at the spot that I'll never forget
Where we first met

If I go will you still be a stranger?
Don't fade away into the mist
If I go will you still be a stranger
In my heart you'll always be missed

Over bright summer days we painted a dream
Fell in a haze of a fantasy scheme
Now fall has come bringing freezing nights
Fading colors away
Please make them stay

If I go will you still be a stranger?
Don't fade away into the mist
If I go will you still be a stranger
In my heart you'll always be missed

And as our memories fade, the city turns grey
The sky threatens to cry and wash all the colors away
Will you leave me alone in the cold of the winter?

If I go will you still be a stranger?
Don't fade away into the mist
When I go will you still be a stranger
In my heart you'll always exist.

Why are we strangers?
Must we be strangers?
(If I go)
Why are we strangers?
Must we be strangers?

If I go...
(Why are we strangers?
Don't fade away
Still be a stranger)
