Promised Land - Avantasia



Hey redeemer
Now what's become on me
Taken in by promise
Awakening in grief

Collecting us like puppets
You instrumentalize
A frigid trepidation
In a million puppet eyes

God gave his word just to let us down
Where is he now?

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

You scratch my back and I scratch yours
It's you who makes decisions
Just open up the doors

Whining in the gutter
They forget their sanctity
Welcome to my clockwork
Vanity machinery

You gave your word
You let me down
What am I now?

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

Oh as far as the eye can see
They're bent in submission
Empty inside
An army of scarecrows like me
Thousands of broken dreams
Thousands of tragedies
Tried to run from their destiny

Like moths to a flame
Driven by vanity
They've been off to Jerusalem
Chasing a dream
Calling on me
Just trading in needs

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

You've been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You're welcome to my home
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

Had lunch with the family together with my uncle and grandmother at Pizza Hut. There was this waitress who, to me, was really beautiful. Think she's Malay, though.

Where are my grandjuniors?

I've gone for 3 band practices this year since my retirement and have seen no j1 French Horn players.

How disappointing.

Countdown at the Esplanade

Yes. I was there. The top-half-of-a-face that pops up at the fourteenth second belongs to my father.



Happy New Year, people.
