It's all perpetual dreams, this hidden life ain't what it seems
Victims of misfortune and lies, and tortured bringers of demise
Walking dead we are
Circling above like vultures
They reap the harvest that we sew and take, like trusting fools
All days now disappear from weeks to months, from months to years
Promising charade

The night falls,
Forever bound, shackled to the wall
I've seen 1000 moons rising in the sky
The night calls,
I feel the midnight as it slowly cloaks my eyes

Touched by the kiss of the sunrise
Live with shadows and fears
Behind smoke and mirrors

Try to turn back the years
Living inside smoke and mirrors
Sacred and serpentine, a hypnotizing twisted theme
Weaves our souls to roar
Like candles in the wind, our echoed cries above the din
In the wheel of chance and fate, spinning as we watch and wait
Fade into this faceless sculpture
On the edge of sanity, we tread the seas of destiny
A mystery to us all
Forever bound, silent voices call

The night falls,
I've seen 1000 moons rising in the sky
I feel the midnight as it slowly cloaks my eyes
The night calls,
Touched by the kiss of the sunrise

Live with shadows and fears
Behind smoke and mirrors
Try to turn back the years
Living
Inside smoke and mirrors
Live with shadows and fears

Try to turn back the years
Behind smoke and mirrors
Living inside smoke and mirrors

Ohh... the night calls
