The Human Game
Lisa Gerrard Lyrics


Under the sun I call your name
I revise your inner flame
I who dare to come disguised
In the night of human eyes
As we begin to unravel the veil
Of our visions, vivid and pale
We recoil with invisible bliss
Losing there the claim to the comfort
Of deaths predesigned
Questioned in vain
The soul remains
To tell it's tale
Vivid and pale
Of broken dreams
Out of the pool and into the flame
We begin the human game
That refers to rise above
Clarity that calls you to
Come out of your tears
Lend me your fears
And fly away
Rest within arms
That promise to calm
The pain away
Somewhere I'll find you inside
The answer when you
Remember who we
Can really be
And there we will arrive home
With all the answers that fair
To reason all within our love
Out of the pool
Into the flame
We do begin
All of our love
Rises above
The human game
Out of your tears
Lend me your fears
And fly away
Rest within arms
That promise to calm
Your pain away

I who dare to come disguised
In the night of the human eyes
As we begin to unravel the veil
Of our visions vivid and pale
We recoil with invisible bliss
Loosing there the claim to the comfort
Of deaths pre-designed
Questioned in vain
The soul remains
To tell its tale
Vivid and pale
Of broken dreams
Out of the pool and into the flame
We begin the human game
That refers to rise above
Clarity that calls you to
Come out of your tears
Lend me your fears
And fly away
Rest within arms
That promise to come
The pain away
Some where I'll find you inside
The answer when we
Remember who we can really be
And there we will arrive home
With all the answers that fair
To reason all within our love
Out of the pool into the flame
We do begin
All of our love rises above
The human game
Out of your tears
Lend me your fears
And fly away
Rest within arms
That promise to come
Your pain away

Beautyfull song. Dead Can Dance and Lisa and Bredan solo projects gave me much inspiration during a hard time in my life in the past. Mind over matter. Thanks for sharing, 4AD.

the only explanation i have for lisa gerrard is that she is an actual angel. I am not a Christian, but i can't explain her in any other way.

wow ~ !!!  Pieter Bourke (an established percussionist and composer) together with (covert angelic commando) Lisa Gerrard excelled themselves again creating classical music. Of course, this song is pre-Insider, pre-Gladiator, and at that time (1998), only few "Dead Can Dance" fans knew of Lisa and Pieter. Even fewer could imagine that Gerrard, Perry, and Bourke would continue to blow our minds (alone, or with duos or through Dead Can Dance) with such a plethora of serious music till today (2014). May the God protect them and give them strength and inspiration to continue...

We all play a game. The game of humanity, we are valued in the currency of love. Some of us are playing in "hard mode".
