This page contains lyrics from the album
"The Spectre Within" by Fates Warning, which was released in 1984 and consists of 5 songs.
Isolation freezes my life, coldness grips my heart
Trapped within a world, a world apart.
Desolate am I, a tempest raging silently.
Lost a barren adrift at sea.
Catatonic state, it sharpens life's depressing edge
The clamor draws me closer to the ledge
As I gaze upon this burning world I curse this life.
A life through which I'm hurled
Never thought my time was coming
Wasn't in my dreams.
Twice I visioned I was falling down,
Down to the ground, I screamed out loud,
Woke on a cloud.
Never really a holy man even though
I understand the father son and Holy Ghost.
He's the one that scares me most
Ashes to rain you feel no pain.
Hell fire burn my conscience, My mind explodes.
Young warrior to the drunken gallery slave
Running with the wind running wayward knave
I'm a vagabond with a maelstrom mind
My blood has left me behind
So go away leave me alone.
If you look in my eyes you see only stone
I won't let you in I can lock you out,
In your world, your fallacy, I don't want desolate
Isle of debris
Traveler In Time
Old man time, Wisdom and Rhyme
Seeker of reason, reaper of time
Born to a spell he walks the beaten path
To hell, rusty shackles of time burden his mind
Once on his side time turns to defy.
In a flash of the lightning he's come and gone.
The clock strikes the hours, he climbs to the belfry
As he's done a thousand hours before.
Many dark years, not a vacant hour through
Without A Trace
What lurks behind the minds of men,
The switch is triggered once again.
A silent rage makes the front page
A work of art so neatly done homicide
Cannot decide was it accident was it suicide
She's just a face without a name never made
It home. They found her car down by
The lake the bottom was raked
The news says it's a classic case, she disappeared
