QueensrycheA little something about Queensryche
I don't know much about Queensryche, other than their 1990 hit "Silent Lucidity", which is a pretty damn good ballad in my humble opinion. Of course, it technically isn't an 80s song, but I think it sort of captures the spirit of the 80s. If you know of other Queensryche lyrics I should have on this site, or if you know more about Queensryche than I do, please drop me a note via the contact section.

Silent Lucidity

Hush now don't you cry 
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye 
You're lying safe in bed 
It was all a bad dream 
Spinning in your head 
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain 
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life 
So here it is, another chance 
Wide awake you face the day 
Your dream is over...or has it just begun? 

There's a place I like to hide 
A doorway that I run to in the night 
Relax child, you were there 
But only didn't realize it and you were scared 
It's a place where you will learn 
To face your fears, retrace the tears 
And ride the whims of your mind 
Commanding in another world 
Suddenly, you hear and see 
This magic new dimension 

I-will be watching over you 
I-am gonna help you see it through 
I-will protect you in the night 
I-am smiling next to you...in silent lucidity 

If you open your mind for me 
You won't rely on open eyes to see 
The walls you built within 
Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin 
Living twice at once you learn 
You7re safe froom pain in the dream domain 
A soul set free to fly 
A round trip journey in your head 
Master of illusion, can you realize 
Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...
