Project 86 Lyrics

We have waited for so long
To occur this day
There are those who fly away to a distant place
But I think I'll stay
And I wouldn't have it any other way
In this solace I see
A light piercing the darkness
Coming on the winds
Of imagery
When all I know is crumbling
I am becoming something more than humanity could ever allow me to be
I remember a day when
My dreams of escape
Seemed so far away

Let's go back in time, you and I
To my
Initiation to your false empire
You greased, you aimed
And then you spit
While I
Once again pushed away my conscience

Yet always, it seems
I cannot fathom the plateau
Without first the pit

Against the goads there can be no pleading
Because every thought reaps an action
And for you, my former captor
All the earthly wisdom and wealth
Cannot erase your susceptibility
To brutal mortality
And the funny thing about justice
Is that it always comes when you least expect it
So friends it won't be long
Seems I stole your smile, right from wrong

So forever now we'll find
Our peace inside this
We'll find our solace in your silence
And though I once desired your twisted sense of fame
I know, I know that in myself I'm nothing

Nothing but the words of the "meaningless"

You have given me all I'll ever need
The nerve, the greed, the lust, the lust, the lust, the lust for justice
And now I will never rest
Until the meaningless become your silence

And you're


Now I mean to thank you once again, with this
My, my, my goodbye kiss
You broke my heart
But something tells me that I won't, that I won't, and I won't miss it
And on this very day
And on this very hill
While the heavens are hushed
In anticipation, beckoning
We'll have ourselves a reckoning
And all of the oppressed will greet you

And you're

I Have listened to project 86 since the 90's, with thirteen years away from media and "what is new" in music, I reintroduced myself to this band, and I can say, "Wow, what growth growth this band has gone through lyrically (primarily) and musically." Solace is one of my favourites.

Daniel Hickey

Project 86 + Motorhead + Nonpoint (3 my fav bands) = epic power ;)


hehe A Celtic Woman concert was on TV in the background, and occasionally they cut to a drummer, who just happened to be playing in time with this song. :) *cough* And on topic, these lyrics are in my top 3 favorites from Project.

Joey Latam
