This is part one of 10 of a series of lyrics I'm writing called Story of a Lifetime

The tide comes in and with it three are brought
What are these beings and what will they be?
These are the questions left unanswered
Because the answer lays within them to find
And for everyone else to see when they've long since gone

What were they before?
A soul lost in the void or nothing at all?
No need to know, for it no longer matters
All we are is what we are, not what we were

The tide recedes to show them in their most tender state
Left to the will of those that gave them life
This will that brings us a question of love or hate for only them to answer
And this answer decides the fate of them all

I would love to know what people think of this since I've had no real feedback on my writings

Part 2 of Story of a Lifetime

The three crawl their way through life, learning all the while
They dream of fantasies never seen before and bury themselves in stories
Their lives a straight line are soon to change

The first learns of solitude through the disappearance of himself
The second learns of tragedy through the death of his own
The third learns of beauty through the birth of her kin

These feelings never felt brings them to tears
Tears of sadness or joy, a difference no one can see
These horrors will change their lives forever

The First:

I find myself alone in this cold city
Left to fend for myself by a cruel family
Who could ever love me if not my own?

I must find the answer to my questions
But how can I help myself if they couldn't help me?

The Second:

Why did he have to go away?
Come back, I never said goodbye
I never had the chance to see you live

These memories are not enough
I wanted more, but too little, too late
Nothing more can be done

The Third:

Such an extraordinary sight
How could anything bring such beauty to the world?
Everything changed, yet nothing seems different

Give me the chance to show him a better reality
A reality of happiness that may never come

---

Narrator:

The twists and turns of life no one can escape
They cause happiness and sadness all the same
Never wrong and never right, we must face them
Face the angels and demons of a world of mystery and false truths

For better or worse, these changes will stay with them forever

Part 3 of Story of a Lifetime

The First:

Years have passed, yet no answer has come
Who am I and why am I alone?
What drives this curiosity?
This curiosity that burns throughout my body
All I do is lose myself to the mute years
Is it all for nothing?

Redundant life is all I am
There is no reason for me here
But I can't go without knowing
Because if I never know
Then I never lived at all

---

The Second:

Uplifting stories of his past is all I hear
But all I wanted was stories of my own
No matter, it's been too long to matter
For he sees through my eyes
Because I see what he's never seen before:
The world, an infinite story

I live for him and only him
I have no need to now
All I need is to show him what he never saw
And all I want is to be something he never had the chance to be

---

The Third:

This man slips in and out of my own life
His shadow the brightest thing these days
This obsession drives me to insanity
So all I need is him

What is he and why does he run?
Why doesn't he look back on life and see that he is loved?
Never stopping for nothing, he's all I want
But all I want is something I can never have

---

Narrator:

This human need to know all drives us to the point of obsession
But what happens when we can't find our answers?
We're pushed over the edge and logical reasoning is lost
This story rehashed over and over

Stuck in a loop with no end in sight
All we do is focus on what we think is necessary
But all it does is stop our progression
It tires us beyond hope of survival
So all we need to move forward is to stop moving at all

Part 4 of Story of a Lifetime

2 years past since the glimpse of minds on the edge
So close to falling, but they work to bring it back
Is it a worthy cause or just endless futility?
Nothing is certain except their determination
But who can be determined when never assured by themselves?

Their hope dissipates slowly as they begin to realize that;
Why do we pursue what has already gone from us?
But what they are soon to find is that the turning point has arrived,
And see that one has lost their fight

---

The First:

I've searched for too long to give in to lost hope
But seeing nothing has brought the truth to my eyes
I will never know
Never know how I came to be, and I don't care
Because there is no need for me to know how those demons brought me

After this realization, I see that I'm tired of it all
All I want now is sleep
And as my eyes slowly close, I think of the things I've missed in this pursuit
The faces of people I may have loved, the miracles I may have experienced
Everything slipped out of my hands
So now I must restart and experience life again

...

Sudden sounds awake me,
and I rise up to see a man running through the alleyway
I stop him and ask of what he runs from
All he does is gives me a stare that has seen all, and says this:
"I run from what must not be seen, and what must never be spoken of"
Nothing more is said and he leaves me to wonder

---

The Second:

Such a sad sight, how could it happen again?
Doesn't matter now
All that matters is that the eyes of innocence never see it
I must run and tell those who've seen too much and lost faith
For they won't feel this feeling evermore

As I run I see a figure in the night
Sleeping and satisfied, but awoken by me
He can never see that tragedy
I have to warn him of the danger that lurks in the dark

I tell him all that needs to be known and continue onward
As I move forward I wonder who they where?
The man who sleeps in that cold nightmare,
And the woman who will never see the full beauty of life

Why do I try to see for my lost kin who's already seen all he wishes to see?
Such a pointless endeavor, but despair fueled this ignorant quest
No matter, all I must do is see that woman be given what she deserves:
A proper goodnight and given to he who gave all

---

The Third:

Drifting in darkness
Where am I?
This question I ask endlessly with no answer

Is this the end? Or just an intermission?

---

Narrator:

The third has found that her days are gone, and is left with nothing
But this nothing will soon change, because she will soon be given life again
An impossible dream come true that only comes to those who see who they are

This is all I have for now, I hope you guys like it

If you happen to browse on deviantart and find this, then that's because I have it there as well under the name of Parallax5

Part 5 of 10 of Story of a Lifetime

The Third:

Eternal slumber disrupted by a miracle
No more darkness, for I am awake again

"You must live for me once more, and you must remake yourself.
You have to be a someone to have a life. You have to be who we all think we are"

Who I was I may never be
I cannot be useless
I must matter
I have to be known
I will never give in to my old dreams

What can I do to make something out of nothing?
Save lives, create lives, discover lives, all done time and time again
I must be the greatest of my time
I must matter

...

Months since my awakening and still nothing
Closer and closer to my purpose, and I'm running out of time
But what is time to a person who time deemed unworthy?
Nothing but a cruel mistress that controls all

People pass me by and I never say goodbye
They never mattered to me
All that matters is that I make my mark
A mark of blood and tears

Note: What I'm trying to get across in this song may be a bit heavy-handed, but that's kind of what I was going for

Part 6 of ? of Story of a Lifetime

The First:

The man's words hang in the air
I find myself trying to follow them
Where do you lead me?
Nowhere or everywhere, it matters not
I will find what they are looking for

What will I find in this hopeful search?
A tragedy or beauty, or nothing at all?

...

Hours pass and I discover a woman in red
Did she deserve this?
A bullet to the chest and doors locked forever
No....No one is owed this pain

This abstruse obsession over red confounds all
I have to drive it out
I can't fall into another enigma machine
I can't break my heart once again

...

I must walk this path once more
But what can I do?
I ran from all the others long ago
And I'm left with nothing for my pain
All I know is the darkness of earth
All I know is isolation and independence

...

Fate unknown, I walk this hateful night
Looking around to see desperate scenario's play out in a silent film
Men chasing hopeless beings of innocence
Houses falling apart decades too early
Children sold for bags of bliss
This town knocked on it's knees has fallen into the ground

This despair roots into my heart
I have to act
I must protect them
I must take life to save life
I must cleanse all

I have decided that 10 parts is not enough for this, so it has been revoked to an unknown amount.
