Shattered Illusion lyrics - missing words

Post by Richard »

Can anyone help with the missing words in the lyrics for Shattered Illusions?

The giant fears that creep upon you as you gaze with open eyes
at the world that surrounds you, hollow shells of faded dreams
Somewhere close I feel your breath and somewhere I sense death
What I felt for you last night is dying with the morning light
Shattered illusions makes me confused
Shattered illusions
The smog thickens over your head...?(3 words)?...
You're standing, watching the years trickle by too soon
Things won't fit into place right before the/they...?(1 word)?...
You don't wanna join the ratrace, thing are getting harder to...?(1 word)?...
Shattered illusions makes me confused
Shattered illusions
Shattered illusions
Start making every scene searching every bar
You're working on another scheme, illusion takes you but how far
Somewhere close I feel your breath and somewhere I sense death
What I felt for you last night is dying with the morning light
Shattered illusions makes me confused
Shattered illusions
Shattered illusions makes me confused
Shattered illusions
It's not supposed to be this way!
Yesterday is dead and gone
Tomorrow is out of sight

In the CD-booklet of the 30th anniversary release, it says "...before they're inside". Unfortunately, the other words you are looking for are not included.
