Desert Rose

Why do you live alone

If you are sad

I'll make you leave this life

Are you white, blue or bloody red

All I can see is drowning in cold grey sand



The winds of time

You knock me to the ground

I'm dying of thirst

I wanna run away

I don't know how to set me free to live

My mind cries out feeling pain



I've been roaming to find myself

How long have I been feeling endless hurt

Falling down, rain flows into my heart

In the pain I'm waiting for you

Can't go back

No place to go back to

Life is lost, Flowers fall

If it's all dreams

Now wake me up

If it's all real

Just kill me



I'm making the wall inside my heart

I don't wanna let my emotions get out

It scares me to look at the world

Don't want to find myself lost in your eyes

I tried to drown my past in grey

I never wanna feel more pain

Ran away from you without saying any words

What I don't wanna lose is love



Through my eyes

Time goes by like tears

My emotion's losing the color of life

Kill my heart

Release all my pain

I'm shouting out louder

Insanity takes hold over me



Turning away from the wall

Nothing I can see

The scream deep inside

reflecting another person in my heart

He calls me from within

"All existence you see before you

must be wiped out :

Dream, Reality, Memories,

and Yourself"



I begin to lose control of myself

My lust is so blind, destroys my mind

Nobody can stop my turning to madness

No matter how you try to hold me in your heart

Why do you wanna raise these walls

I don't know the meaning of hatred

My brain gets blown away hearing words of lies

I only want to hold your love



Stab the dolls filled with hate

Wash yourself with their blood

Drive into the raging current of time

Swing your murderous weapon into the belly

"the earth"

Shout and start creating confusion

Shed your blood for pleasure

And what? For love?

What am I supposed to do?



I believe in the madness called "Now"

Past and future prison my heart

Time is blind

But I wanna trace my love

on the wall of time, over pain in my heart

Art of life

Insane blade stabbing dreams

Try to break all truth now

But I can't heal this broken heart in pain

Cannot start to live, Cannot end my life

Keep on cry



Close my eyes

Time breathes I can hear

All love and sadness

melt in my heart





Dry my tears

Wipe my bloody face

I wanna feel me living my life

outside my walls



You can't draw a picture of yesterday, so

You're painting your heart with your blood

You can't say "No"

Only turning the wheel of time

with a rope around your neck

You build a wall of morality and take a breath

from between the bricks

You make up imaginary enemies and are chased by them

You're trying to commit suicide

You're satisfied with your prologue

Now you're painting your first chapter black

You are putting the scraps of life together

and trying to make an asylum for yourself

You're hitting a bell at the edge of the stage

and

You are trying to kill me



I believe in the madness called "Now"

Time goes flowing, breaking my heart

Wanna live

Can't let my heart kill myself

Still I haven't found what I'm looking for

Art of life

I try to stop myself

But my heart goes to destroy the truth

Tell me why

I want the meaning of my life

Do I try to live, Do I try to love

in my dream



I'm breaking the wall inside my heart

I just wanna let my emotions get out

Nobody can stop

I'm running to freedom

No matter how you try to hold me in your world

Like a doll carried by the flow of time

I sacrificed the present moment for the future

I was in chains of memory half-blinded

Losing my heart, walking in the sea of dreams



Close my eyes

Rose breathes I can hear

All love and sadness melt in my heart

Dry my tears

Wipe my bloody face

I wanna feel me living my life

outside my mind



Dreams can make me mad

I can't leave my dream

I can't stop myself

Don't know what I am

What lies are truth?

What truths are lies?



I believe in the madness called "Now"

Time goes flowing, breaking my heart

Wanna live

Can't let my heart kill myself

Still I haven't found what I'm looking for

Art of life

I try to stop myself

But my heart goes to destroy the truth

Tell me why

I want the meaning of my life

Do I try to live? Do I try to love?



Art of life

An Eternal Bleeding heart

You never wanna breathe your last

Wanna live

Can't let my heart kill myself

Still I'm feeling for

A Rose is breathing love

in my life

I love these lyrics, because they tell a story of a person who has been hurt by many of life's hardships. It scares the person to look at the world and experience new emotion or experiences; the person is making the wall around their heart so that they wont feel more pain and hurt, as the song goes on, however, the persona wants to find the love they are looking for, so they begin to break down the walls and let their hidden emotions out, they want to run to freedom and wont let anybody stop them, but as they begin to break down the wall, they have to fight with themself to realise the meaning of their life; the persona has lived in the confines of their mind for so long, they have to melt the sadness and pain in their heart to discover the meaning of their life; to live or to love? At the final verse, the persona bleeds out all the pain in their heart, allowing a rose to bloom and breathe love in their life, making the person a stronger individual, who's heart is full of new hope, meaning and love.
