Lyrics

Selfish seeker

Written By: Ayman Khalifa

Verse 1:

I've been around
Been living like a tiger
A resurrection of another failure nation
As the ship go by
I am the only fighter
At least a soldier in my deep imagination
For a thousand miles
I had to walk in fire
With no surrender I replace the situation
I've lost the sun
And dreamed about the rising
My burning wisdom failed to tune my inspiration

Did I leave you, crying, dying, trying to save your soul
Maybe you are asking, searching, why I let you go

Verse 2:

For all my life
I stood against the ocean
My past was glowing now I think I’m growing older
And late at night
When waves are getting higher
A blowing thunder made a change in destination

I know you were staring, calling my name as I walked through the door
I don't want to be learning, holding your words in my mind as I go

Running for desire till the end of life
Sailing with no sailor to the other side
Flying in no motion trying to break free
Leaving you in sadness pretend I don't see

Chorus:

There is no way to find me
I don’t hesitate to Slay
I know I became so lonely
I know it’s time to pay

Illusions set the stages
Vampires rule the game
The victim of the darkness
I think it's me again

Verse 3:

I am going down down down beneath the ocean
I think I am burning fast
I'm loosing my devotion
I heard them cry
And lived inside the ashes
No chance to start
And seek a new creation

Did I leave you, crying, dying, trying to save your soul
Maybe you are asking, searching, why I let you go

Are you still that strong like you used to be
Or I got you down like they did to me .

I Know, I know, I know you've been trying
You've been trying to save my soul

Chorus:

There is no way to find me
I don’t hesitate to Slay
I know I became so lonely
I know it’s time to pay

Illusions set the stages
Vampires rule the game
The victim of the darkness
I think it's me again
