"What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story.
And the greatest good is little enough,
for all life is a dream,
and dreams themselves are only dreams..."

"We have all some experience of a feeling
that comes over us occasionally,
of what we are saying and doing
having been said and done before, in a remote time -
of our having been surrounded, dim ages ago,
by the same faces, objects, and circumstances -
of our knowing perfectly what will be said next,
as if we suddenly remember it!"

Spirits of the night
communicate with me
Their visions of a future
of what is yet to be
As I see the way I die
and I try to change it,
I am running short of time
I'll just sit here waiting

Until the moment comes around,
like I've been here once before,
and I'm questioning the truth.
No escaping déjà vu!

"There is a drowsy state, between sleeping and waking,
when you dream more in five minutes
with your eyes half open, and yourself half conscious
of everything that is passing around you
than you would in five nights with your eyes fast closed,
and your senses wrapt in perfect unconsciousness."

"Dreams are real as long as they last. Can we say more of life?"

If I could harness this power
Assume absolute control
of my visions from a future,
no one will ever know
That I've seen the day you die
and I tried to change it
You are running short of time
You'll just sit there waiting

'Til the moment comes around,
like you've been there once before
And you're questioning the truth
No escaping déjà vu!
'Til the moment comes around,
like we've been here once before
Now there's nothing left to lose
No escaping déjà vu!

Faces become strangely familiar,
stumbling upon traces of my visions.

Now I see a shadow of a man
In my silhouette he stands.
The wisdom of my premonition comes to life!
I was just a kid back then,
but now I'm back to take revenge
I sternly look my killer in the eye
I'm out for satisfaction
when I'm suddenly distracted
by the silent cries that echo in the streets
My finger pulls the trigger,
with my whole life left to figure
if the boy I accidentally killed was me!

Voices become strangely deceiving
Gravity's pull has zero effect on me

Now the moment's finally here,
and it feels like just before
Only now I face the truth
I will have to wait no more

Will this ever end?
I've been through enough
This is the part where I wake up
with blood on my hands,
traveling back to where it all began
As for the boy, it pleased me to know
that he'll just wake up
nine years old, alone and afraid
He'll live for the day
this moment comes around again

Now the moment's finally here,
and it feels just like before
Even now I know the truth
I accept my fate no more

[A – x8] I bet you don't remember me,
I guess you won't
forget the only way to go
when there is nowhere left to roam
[B – x4] (Scenes from someone else's lifetime)
(Flash like bright lights before my eyes)
(Scenes from someone else's lifetime)
(Flash like bright lights in my eyes)
[C] (From the beginning I never dreamt I was the killer)
[D] (Over the edge, falling in and out of time)

Yeah, the moment passed us by,
and it felt just like before
As I leave this world behind,
I know I'll come back for more
