about

"Like something out of step and out of time on the bill of extreme-metal they none-the-less draw in the crowd with the brooding delicate build of their Queensryche Waring-era opus ‘One Thousand’. It’s a beautifully constructed and powerful song that breaks all the rules"

- The Rockpit

lyrics

Where will we be in a thousand years,
If we're even here at all,
My vision defiled by a thousand tears,
Wept for the life that we hold strong,
Lost in the echo of a thousand screams,
While we wage war for our selfish needs,
Crushed by the death of a thousand dreams,
As the hopes of the greedy feed

Lay In Silence,
The voice isn't heard as the kingdom is overthrown,
One thousand nightmares,
Brought to life as the eyes of the worthy close,
The deceitful ride on a rabid steed,
Bearing blades of lies, the good fall to their knees,
They burn inside, a victim to the pleas,
of a million hate-filled screams.

The morale fades for a thousand lives,
When the glory begins to fall,
What will become of the civilized,
When the courageous can't stand tall,
A thousand Kings become a thousand slaves,
A million hopes are briskly washed away,
By a sea of blood, sacrifice and pain,
The day the evils left to reign

Lay In Silence,
The voice isn't heard as the kingdom is overthrown,
One thousand nightmares,
Brought to life as the eyes of the worthy close,
The deceitful ride on a rabid steed,
Bearing blades of lies, the good fall to their knees,
They burn inside, a victim to the pleas,
of a million hate-filled screams.

DO WE,
Hold the key to change? Or is it all too late?
HAVE WE,
Sealed our destiny? Or is the hatred now to great?

As I lay in silence,
The voice isn't heard as the kingdoms overthrown,
One thousand nightmares,
Brought to life as the eyes of the worthy close,
The deceitful ride on a rabid steed,
Baring blades of lies, while the good fall to their knees,
Burn inside a victim to the pleas,
Of a million hate-filled screams

<Solo>

Lay In Silence,
The voice isn't heard as the kingdom is overthrown,
One thousand nightmares,
Brought to life as the eyes of the worthy close,
The deceitful ride on a rabid steed,
Bearing blades of lies, the good fall to their knees,
They burn inside, a victim to the pleas,
of a million hate-filled screams.
