My Life. My Music. Your Voyeurism.

Angels in white, you have sacrificed…you witnessed and buried the pain

God, this is one of the most beautiful metal songs ever written.

Guardian

These walls are stained, engraved with pain
You will find them under shadows casting shame
Some it’s all they’ve ever known
Angels of the fortunate sons come and go
You may not

Entities pass in the night
Guardians and the Reaper fight
The will to live shall win
Mares of hope ride through their dreams
Blinding light awakens sleeping dawn
It seems It was all a dream
An endless dream

I will wish upon a star
I believe in you
And if my will has strayed afar
I rememebered you
Will you remember me?
I’m the one you sentenced
Pennance unabsolved
Answer me
Save my will
Have you forgotten me?

Pace the hallway blindman
For a million miles of stars his mind has seen
Think you may, he lives in darkness
We’re the dark , he’s seen the light of dream

Karen, she’s been asleep forever
I know she hears me
She has so much to say
The machine thatsparks
Through her egg shell mind
The tear streams from her face
Into my hand, to my heart

I will wish upon a star
I believe in you
And if my will has strayed afar
I rememebered you
Will you remember me?
I’m the one you sentenced
Pennance unabsolved
Answer me, Save my will

I’m a fire without a flame
Helpless child without a name
With broken wings
Catch me, I’m falling
I’m a question with no answer
Who are you that takes my life away from me?
Unveil the boundaries of the black

I had a dream I was you
Strong as the fire in my veins
And when I called out your name
I would remain to witness the pain
I am beyond silent black
I will be back as your Guardian

Angels in white you have sacrificed
You witnessed and buried the pain
You walk hand and hand with the fear stricken child
Strengthen the weak and the lame
Have you seen beyond the unborn?
Pillar of pennance and lore
Perpetual journey into the realm
The Sovereign Servitor

I will wish upon a star
I believe in you
And if my will has strayed afar
I rememebered you
Will you remember me?
I’m the one you sentenced
Pennance unabsolved
Answer me, Save my will
Have you forgotten me?

  1. spooky.

    I just went to a buddies house yesterday and listened to this!

    he had the remastered 2 CD + DVD set. The 2nd CD is demos + live stuff!
    nice artwork on the cover as well…

    I still think my fav. Fates Warning = The Spectre Within esp. the song “The Apparition”.

    Long live East Coast METAL!

  2. Yeah, I go back and forth between Spectre and Guardian. Spectre is the king of Fates Warning riffage, but Arch’s vocals and harmonies on Guardian are insane.

  3. “Awaken The Guardian” is such a great Metal album… back when I first bought/listened to it, it was over my head… in a fantastic way. Yes, the artwork I revere too. Just a great song and album to bring out in the open once again.
