Sonata Arctica On The Faultline (Closure To An Animal) Lyrics

I am a man

You fell down from that apple tree

The other day with me

And now

You ask me to apologise for slowly

Crawling up from the sea?

We never seem to find

The time to sit by the fire

Under the crescent moon

Lead a meaningful life

You ever wonder, love

If you could one day board a flying contraption

And see the world?

Without me?

Leave me behind to solve all the puzzles you have

Drawn on these walls over time

What if I could somehow store

Good memories in clouds

And fly to touch the moon

And your hand at the same time

Here I stand and look at my life

Barren, cold and incomplete

A mirror smiles at me with teary disdain

Pointing out the faults in me

Memories of holidays with you

Will rain on me from time to time

We have the road within ourselves

To countless paradises

When there is a tunnel there’s a light

The thought is causing tremors

On the faultline between you and I

The clouds always trail the sun

And floods put out the fires

To flush away the signs of

The loves of our lives

Here I stand and look at my life

Barren, cold and incomplete

Mirror smiles at me with a teary disdain

Pointing out all faults in me

Memories of holidays with you

Will rain on me from time to time

We are the road, the paradise

The broken wheel of fortune

When there’s a tunnel there’s a light

The thought is causing tremors

On the fault line between you and I

When I’m without you

Am I the only human here?

Dancing on this fault line…
