FOOL´S PARADISE - Living in a Fantasy


Obal


1. REFUGEE

This is the story of Liam Wright. He is a refugee. While the world as he knows is collapsing, Liam has taken refuge in a small log house. He looks at the rain falling through the window and hears the thunder rumbling. He turns round. He looks around the cabin: a bed, books, music, video games. This seems to be a good place to hide but maybe not the only one.



2. A PLACE TO HIDE

Many worlds are gone and others blow apart. What's left behind? You'd better hide.
Hide until your demons now depart. You can go, show off your smile.
You heard them cry. But you don't mind. That's not your style. You know you’ll never realize.
That what you prize. Is a bunch of lies. The only place to hide.

The only place to hide
All your wounds and all your crimes
The blood is trickling from your hands
You can still try to close your eyes
The dream is gone, the tears may arise

No cure, the poison keeps slithering in your veins. This prayer’s still haunting your brain.
Feel the power coming in a million ways. Your fires spit on your grave.
You heard them cry. But you don't mind. That's not your style. You know you’ll never realize.
That what you prize. Is a bunch of lies. The only place to hide.

Chorus

You run under the rain and hope to clear the stains
That run over your mind, but I don't think you'll ever find.
You have gone way too far. You followed the wrong star.
But I don’t think you want. You made sure not to find.

The only place to hide. The only place inside. The only place to hide. This place is in my mind

Be careful of your steps, ‘cause they may follow you.
The words escape your lips but I don't think they understood.
You have gone way too far. You followed the wrong star.
But I don’t think you want. You made sure not to find.

The only place to hide. The only place inside. The only place to hide. This place is in my mind

He closes his eyes. He feels estranged from the world around him. His mind is not a safe place and he is becoming …



3. INSANE

Glassy eyes and deafening cries. Madness in me.
Ostracized and hypnotized. The monster that should never be... Never free.
Petrified, Zombified. Demons haunting me.
Terrified, Horrified. Don't test on me a new therapy... Hear my plea.
A thrill is running down my spine. It chills my veins as it declines.
I'd like to tell you what I feel. But my voice can't break through the steel... of my mental seal.

Inner tears, stifled rage
My straight jacket can’t restrain
Haunting fears, in this cage
I know I’ll remain insane! Insane!

Petrified and zombified, demons are haunting me.
Terrified and horrified, don't test on me your brand new therapy... Hear my plea!
Mesmerized, traumatized. Chaos around me.
Neutralized, sanitized. I am fed up with your empathy … Please kill me!
A thrill is running down my spine. It chills my veins as it declines.
And when it ends, I realize. I’m trapped in a fool’s paradise … where hope turns to lies.

chorus

His eyes open again. Liam’s mind wanders on and thinks about how this madness all began in the home of the brave and the land of the free…



4. THE TRAGEDY OF UNFULFILLED HOPES

Part I – Enlightenment
Extracts from the Declaration of Independence (USA), The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights and Voltaire.

Part II – The Scope of all possibilities
All over this great land we own. We spread hope like a whisper, whisper...
We colonized a brand new world. Let's build a better future.
All over this great land we own. We spread hope like a whisper.
It's time to cross the threshold. Try and see what will occur ?

Part III – A trial by fire
Black... Sweat! Blood... Shed!
And then the time has finally come to show what we've learned from the past.
We hold a great chance to go on and we believe that it will last.
A blank page to write on, long straight lines through the horizon: look at why and how this dream was born.
Hot ink full of black sweat, the embers of our crimes still red.
Liberty cost us so much bloodshed. Let our ideals spread!

A trial by fire... A trial by fire...

Black... Sweat! Blood... Shed !
We're big on talk, it's time to act. Good or evil, seal the pact.
That will ensure this feeble spark of hopeful light won't turn too dark.
A blank page to write on, long straight lines through the horizon: look at why and how this dream was born.
Hot ink full of black sweat, the embers of our crimes still red.
Liberty cost us so much bloodshed. Let our worthy ideals... spread.

Part IV – Written statements and broken promises
Promises, written in blood, made for securing peace , to give justice for all...
Promises, betrayed for gold. ‘Cause when the serpents hiss, you break them one by one.

A chance for mankind. A treasure to find. This straight path leads to redemption.
A dream for the blind. With unquiet minds, we can't all alone keep holding on !

Part V – The seven deadly sins
The tragedy of unfulfilled hopes. Wild flames of new crimes we make.
No more justice, more bloodshed.
The tragedy of unfulfilled hopes. We have been corrupted since our primary seed.
The end justifies the means.



5. FOLLOW THE LEADER

Choose us! Elect us! We'll guide you for the better.
Choose me! Elect me! I can build for you a new world order.

Let others decide what to dream. Too weak, too loose to scream.
Don't hope for a joint endeavour Follow the leader!
Let others decide what to think. Your will's about to shrink.
Don't trade a king for a jester. Follow the leader!

No blame... for failure. Who can foresee the future?
Avoid... the hater. Or your thoughts will slowly begin to blur!

Chorus

Puppet! Master! I'm your... leader? Puppet! Master ! I'm your... leader!

Chorus
His anger is growing. So much injustice, so much pain, if only he could do something about it…



6. LEX TALIONIS

Court cases look like pantomimes. The lawyers read between the lines of their book of lies.
Justice is slain, justice is drowned. The last grain of dust has been thrown. My anger won't calm (down).
You'll kneel. Get ready, you will... Feel my hate. It's time to retaliate.

Oh, oh. By the gun, by the knife, I need to take your life now !
Your blood will ease my sorrow. In the name of Talion law.

Impunity for criminals, ten divine laws, many more flaws. The system hides a clause.
To steal, no remorse, you will feel my hate. It's time to retaliate.

Chorus

Liam gets up. No vengeance, no violence will solve the problem. The only solution is refuge again. But where? How? He looks around him. What does he see? Screens, overloaded screens. But are they overloaded after all? Do they not offer the way out he is seeking?



7. LIVING ON A FANTASY

Looking for perfection in an imperfect world. All my expectations were leading me nowhere.
My digital identity is all I give to the world. I live behind this fantasy, I like living in this blur.
All is fake anyway…

My soul is living on this fantasy, which makes me choose my own reality.
Can’t you see, I’m no longer me, and I sin for free.

I walk through the maze of a virtual world. Losing control over my own actions.
My avatar is leading me to unhoped for adventures, I am losing myself in a tempting risky venture.
All is fake anyway…

Chorus

All is fake anyway.

My soul is living on this fantasy, which makes me choose my own reality.
Can’t you see, I’m no longer me, and I die for free

My soul is living on this fantasy, Can’t you see that I am no longer me?
Which makes me choose my own reality. And that this world will make me die for free.
Can’t you see that I am no longer me? No longer me.
And that this world will make me die for free? Die for free.

Liam’s old world is dead, he’s dreaming of an idle world now



8. ODE TO IDLENESS

Wake up now, your to-do list awaits. Run! Let's go! It is forbidden to procrastinate!

Were we born to work so hard... as time flies away? Were we born to live so blind... each and every day?
Making actions of all kinds... A high price to pay. Will we sweat on every yard along this so ephemeral...

...Wasted life? We fail to relieve stress. Not enough leisure time for us to rest.
So sing this ode to idleness. It can bring us more than we can guess...

Be active. We don't need you to think. Don't believe that your eyes are even allowed to blink.

Were we born to work so hard... as time flies away? Were we born to live so blind... each and every day?
Making actions of all kinds... A high price to pay. Will we sweat on every yard along this so ephemeral...

Were we born to work so hard... as time flies away? Were we born to live so blind... each and every day?
Making actions of all kinds... A high price to pay. Will we sweat on every yard along this so ephemeral...

Chorus



9. CLOSE TO THE WORLD

Out in the blazing sun. I watch the raindrops falling at the end of dawn.

It makes me feel like I'm living. It makes me feel just like I’m breathing.
And finally, I feel that I am close to the world.

I 'm close to the world, close to the real world, (I 'm) close to the world ! Yes I am!
I 'm close to the world, close to the real world, (I 'm) close to the world ! Yes I am!

Climbing the rocky cliffs. I watch the eagles flying in the hazy mist.

I feel nothing can harm me now. And that no screen can bring me down.
And finally, I feel that I am close to the world.

Chorus

Maybe I am!
Am I close to this world, close to the real world? Am I close to your world? A beautiful world!
I 'm locked in this world, locked in another world. Am I still from your world? A scary world!

In a start, he wakes up. His body is shaking, and his mind is panic-stricken. He kneels, looks up and calls for God…



10. A SILENT CALL

In my conscience, no resilience.
Prayers make sense in silence, in silence.
Under pressure, I surrender.
To remember my failure, my failure.

Free me from what I feel. Heal me from what I've done.
Don't let me kneel here all alone. Until I'm gone!
Lull me until I dream. Lift me up when I fall.
Don't let me scream a silent call. A silent call!

Crimson bloodstains, transected veins.
A thousand pains. Shame remains!
Is this madness? Or a blind faith?
Which God could bless my disgrace, my disgrace?

Chorus

While my icy tears unfreeze, I'm on my knees, I'm trying to breathe.
If it helps me to stand tall, I will scream with all my soul, a silent call.

Every second I will pray, to wash away what led me astray.
If it helps me to stand tall, I will scream with all my soul, a silent call.



11. DELIVERANCE

Liam lies down, feels his pain soothing, his mind lifting in an eternal rest.
