Lyrics


1. THE PHILOSOPHER

Do you feel what I feel, see what I see, hear what I hear
There is a line you must draw between your dream world and reality
Do you live my life or share the breath I breathe
Lies feed your judgement of others
Behold how the blind lead each other
The philosopher
You know so much about nothing at all
[Lead: Chuck]

Ideas that fall under shadows of theories that stand tall
Thoughts that grow narrow upon being verbally released
Your mind is not your own,
what sounds more mentally stimulating is how you make your choice
So you preach about how I'm supposed to be, yet you don't you know your own
sexuality
Lies feed your judgement of others
Behold how the blind lead each other
The philosopher
You know so much about nothing at all




2. TRAPPED IN A CORNER

I want to watch you drown in your lies.
The end of your masquerade, a matter of time
Interwining lies, domination, control
Feed his twisted nature
It is sickening to see dreams die
A word of advice, fate's patience is growning short.
Fake down to your mind and appearance
You will fall short of the dreams to destroy
In time you will find yourself trapped in a corner
These four words my friend, I promise you will not forget
[Lead: Andy, Chuck]

I am one of many that see through your lies
Hiding will do you no good, many seek revenge.
Soon to become a victim of what you live to create, and cannot have.
It is sickening to see dreams die
A word of advice, fate's patience is growning short.
Fake down to your mind and appearance
You will fall short of the dreams to destroy




3. CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN

Built from blind faith
Passed down from self-induced fantasy
Turn a page to justify
Conjuring power - it opens wide
On seventh day,
is that how it's done?
Twisting your eyes to perceive
all that you want
To assume from ignorance
Inflicting wounds with your
cross-turned dagger

[Chorus:]
Inside crystal mountain
Evil takes its form
Inside crystal mountain
Commandments are reborn

All the traps are set to confine
All who get in the way of the divine
In sight and in mind of the hypocrite
A slave to the curse forever confined

[Solo: Schuldiner]

Shatter the myth
Don't cut yourself
On your words against
dreams made of steel
Stronger any faith
That inflicts pain and fear,
is that how it's done?
Twisting your eyes to perceive
all that you want
To assume from ignorance
Inflicting wounds with your
cross-turned dagger

[Repeat chorus]




4. SUICIDE MACHINE

Controlling their lives
Deciding when and how they will die
A victim of someone else's choice
The ones who suffer have no voice
Manipulating destiny
When it comes to living, no one seems to care
But when it comes to wanting out
Those with power, will be there
Prolong the pain
How long will it last?
Suicide machine
A request to die with dignity
Is that too much to ask?
Suicide machine
How easy it is to deny the pain
Of someone else's suffering

[Solos: Schuldiner, Masvidal]

Robbed of natural abilities
In death they now seek tranquility
In a confused state of mind
Extending agony, they must be blind
Manipulating destiny

When it comes to living, no one seems to care
But when it comes to wanting out
Those with power, will be there
Prolong the pain
How long will it last?
Suicide machine
A request to die with dignity
Is that too much to ask?
Suicide machine




5. TOGETHER AS ONE

Labelled a creation of evil
Ridiculed for their shocking appearance
Sharing both please and pain
Two minds, two hearts, one soul
Separating mentally
An illusion of privacy
Together - they absorb each other's lives
As One - they will live and they will die
A living hell has begun

[Solo: Schuldiner]

Displayed as a nightmare
Criticized through words and eyes
As they stare
To the normal it seems grotesque
Connected by a bond of flesh
Two minds, two hearts, one soul
Separating mentally
An illusion of privacy
Together - they absorb each other's lives
As One - they will live and they will die
A living hell has begun




6. ZERO TOLERANCE

In the dark of night...
Abusing a portion of light
While others are sleeping
And some are escaping
A serpent spews out fantasy-
Unjustified blasphemy
That cannot be condoned

[Solo: Schuldiner]

It must be strange to not have lived
So far into existence

This is not a test of power
This is not a game to be lost or won
Let justice be done

[Chorus:]
There will be zero tolerance
For the creator of hallowed intentions
There will be zero tolerance
Fate is your deciding God

[Solo: Schuldiner / Solo: Koelble]

Karma comes crashing down
Leaving a very deep scar
Exposing a door to the
Source of a verbal whore
Machines supply the altar
Where virtuous lives are sacrificed

[Solo: Koelble]

It must be strange to not have lived
So far into existence

This is not a test of power
This is not a game to be lost or won
Let justice be done




7. LACK OF COMPREHENSION

A condeming fear strikes down
Things they cannot understand
An excuse to cover up weaknesses that lie within
Lies
Laying your guilt and pain
On people that had no part in the molding of a life
That creates its destruction
Lies
Right before your very eyes
A reflection of the mistakes
To the end you will deny
Your part in the demise of a life
Lack of comprehension
Thriving on your cliche
Compelled by self-resentment

[Solo: Schuldiner]

Reaching into the minds of those that created
The depression in which they
In which they drowned their flesh and blood
Lies
So easy to blame the
Everlasting fear on a pathetic attempt
To justify the ending of life
Lies
Right before your very eyes
A reflection of the mistakes
To the end you will deny
Your part in the demise of a life
Lack of comprehension
Thriving on your cliche
Compelled by self-resentment




8. FLESH AND THE POWER IT HOLD

I told you once but i will say it again
When you live the flesh it is the beginning
Of the end
It will take you in
It will spit you out
Behold the flesh and the power it holds
Passion is a poison laced with pleasure bitter sweet
One of many faces that hide deep beneath
It will take you in
It will spit you out
Behold the flesh and the power it holds
Touch, taste, breathe, consumed
Deja-vu. Already knew from the first encounter
But know i know to let go of words to speak no more
Like a wind upon your face you can't see it
But you know it's there, when beauty shows
Its ugly face, just be prepared.

[solo schuldiner]

Passion burns like fire carried by the wind
The end of a time, a time to begin
It builds you up one way and tears
You right back down, a time to begin
The end of a time.

Touch, taste, breathe, consumed.




9. FLATTENING OF EMOTIONS

Where is the person that could have been
Who, what took over, when did the end begin
Should we not prepare for the uncertain
Mysteries of our life, of our destiny
See things that are not there
Intruding voices
What went wrong to their picture perfect life
They once knew - Flattering of emotions

[Solos: Schuldiner, Masvidal]

A mind shared by an uninvited stranger
Which comes and goes as choose to appear
Should we not prepare for the uncertain
Mysteries of our life, of our destiny
See things that are not there
Intruding voices
What went wrong to their picture perfect life
They once knew - Flattering of emotions




10. SPIRIT CRUSHER

It comes from the depths
Of a place unknown to the
Keeper of dreams
If it could then it would steal
The sun and the moon from the sky
Beware

Human at sight, monster at heart
Don't let it inside it could
Tear you right apart

No guilt, it feeds in plain sight
Spirit crusher
Stay strong and hold on tight
Spirit crusher

Speaking in killing words

The vicious kind that crush and kill
No mercy, its pleasure to taste
The blood that it bled.

[solo schuldiner / hamm]

When it's time to feed to fulfill
The need to consume a breath
Some will rise standing tall
Breathing out all the breath from
The voice of a soul.




11. PULL THE PLUG

Memories is all that's left behind
As I lay and wait to die
Little do they know
That I hear their choice of life

End it now, it is the only way
Too cruel, that is what they say
Release me from this lonely world
There is no hope - why don't you

[ Find more Lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.org/Jet ]
Pull the plug
Let me pass away
Pull the plug
Don't wanna live this way

Once I had full control of my life
I now behold a machine decides my fate
End it now it's all too late
What has now been days,
it seems like years
To stay like this is what I fear
Life ends so fast, so take your chance
And make it last
