Dead Can Dance – The Human Game lyrics

Under the sun I call your name
I revise your inner flame
I who dare to come disguised
In the night of the human eyes
As we begin to unravel the veil
Of our visions vivid and pale
We recoil with invisible bliss
Loosing there the claim to the comfort
Of deaths pre-designed
Questioned in vain
The soul remains
To tell its tale
Vivid and pale
Of broken dreams
Out of the pool and into the flame
We begin the human game
That refers to rise above
Clarity that calls you to
Come out of your tears
Lend me your fears
And fly away
Rest within arms
That promise to come
The pain away
Some where I'll find you inside
The answer when we
Remember who we can really be
And there we will arrive home
With all the answers that fair
To reason all within our love
Out of the pool into the flame
We do begin
All of our love rises above
The human game
Out of your tears
Lend me your fears
And fly away
Rest within arms
That promise to come
Your pain away
