  • symphony x'in 2011'de çıkan iconoclast albümünün 7. şarkısı. (9.10)

    i believe nothing ever comes to light
    chasing shadows in the night
    in a starless sky
    and i wonder why

    oh i believe we will never find a way
    that darkness lights the day
    we never question why
    still i wonder why

    i close my eyes lost in a memory
    just like a candle in the wind
    what could have been, with just one kiss goodbye
    you spread your wings to fly far away

    somehow, someday you will understand
    i hope you'll understand someday

    silent pictures speak like ghosts in the machine
    haunting my reflection in the frame
    chasing down the hopeful child inside of me
    where'd it all go wrong, and who's to blame

    we pass the time away
    with empty lives, the laughter dies

    oh, is this all we have to show?
    is this all they'll ever know? can they find their way?
    what went wrong? where have all the heroes gone?
    trading futures for a song we gave away

    thinking only of myself, i forged ahead
    no regrets, no apologies
    bitter tears reward the life that i have led
    a world of lies brings me to my knees

    i took the road with every twist and every turn
    the words of wisdom is the lesson never learned

    lose your fear and free your soul
    or the mysteries of life you'll truly never know
    you’ll never know

    is this all we have to show?
    is this all they'll ever know? can they find their way?
    what went wrong? where have all the heroes gone?
    trading futures for a song we gave away
    just gave it away

    i close my eyes, lost in that memory
    like a candle in the wind
    what could have been, with just one kiss goodbye
    you spread your wings to fly far away
    i hope you'll understand one day

    we pass the time away
    with empty lives the laughter dies
    and the colors fade
    fade away
    oh, they all fade away

    oh, is this all we have to show?
    is this all they'll ever know? can they find their way?
    what went wrong? where have all the heroes gone?
    trading futures for a song we gave away

    what went wrong?
    where have all our heroes gone?
    trade our future for a song
    we gave it all away...
  • iconoclast albümünün her yönüyle en iyisi denebilecek symphony x şarkısı.
  • sadece iconaclast içinde değerlendirilirse, albümün en iyi şarkısı olduğu söylenebilir. müzikalite açısından albümde daha iyi bir şarkı yok. dahası bütün albümde russel allen'ın sesini en başarılı kullandığı şarkı bu. bilhassa son 30 saniyedeki kapanış albümün kapanışı bile olabilirmiş. ve tabi ki albümün en iyi solosu da bu şarkıya ait. sanırım iconaclast'ın paradise lost'u olması istenmiş. mamafih paradise lost bambaşka bir yerdedir gönüllerde.
