Awakening (Neon Synthesis)

When blood flows and the party is over Sounds from the past haunt my sleep Echoes of a new existence The rejection of life means higher needs The same sky upon us Pleasure melts with pain The light has faded We will die again Memories hurt Like reopened scars The ashes of the future From the womb of the past That restless night bred Memory and desire Only disillusion's left Everything has been done Nothing was safe from my iconoclastic rage The fire of truth set my world ablaze A strange hell opened up its gates for me The fruit of knowledge fell from the tree Sometimes at night I prayed to fall asleep An escape from reality The washing of the sins Another sky upon us Regret and sorrow grow Another day has gone Is there a space for hope? No escape from here From this darkened place The tolling of a distant bell Reminds us of our fate That restless night bred Memory and desire Only disillusion's left Everything has been done Now I am like everybody else I'm not myself anymore
