Lyrics


1. Death Church

Well I look at justice in a different light
I been to jail, it didn't make me right
Try and conform, but won't be deaf, blind, dumb
Been beaten down, just harder I've become

[Chorus:]
Death church rising
Hate church rising
Lost church rising
Death church rising

Hey Jesus can't you help me with my pain
Mainline me some religion, keep me sane
Christ suffering upon my TV screen
Send in your money to the faith obscene

[Chorus]

Strength, truth and honor, words I strive to live
Your faith's profane, it takes, never gives
'Cause I'm gonna die standing upon my feet
You're gonna die groveling on your knees

[Chorus]

2. Old

I am the man that defends all things profane
6000 years is the time that I shall reign
And with a grin drank the blood of holy swine
Impurity made the blood turn into wine

[Chorus:]
Old man, dead hand
If only their insanity
The lie feeds off their greed
Jesus wept

I am the pain that feeds off your weakness
A sickening born of hate, not of the blessed
And with the time I will crush all things you prey
Destroying all from the known to the arcane

[Chorus]

Burn my eyes and try to blind me
Bury me so they won't find me
Try to suck my power empty
Got no crown of thorns on me

So burn my eyes and try to blind me
Bury me so they won't find
Try to suck my power dry
You got no crown of thorns on me

[Chorus]

3. The Rage to Overcome

This world does not want me
This world does not care
And I am a product of this world
Confused, I'd say that's fair
This pain will never leave me
It's scared upon my brain
Destroying everything that brought this
Just to keep me, just to keep me sane

A hatred burns inside me
Emotion out of hand
But I've the will to focus this
Survive, contrive, command
From pain come a courage
The strength from injustice
The rage to overcome it all
An open mind
With a closed fist

4. A Nation on Fire

Well I see, I feel
On my way
You close your eyes, scared to think
You might see
A world that spends more to kill than to cure
Living, writhing, diseased, so unpure

It hardens me, the things I see
But I won't break, it gives me strength

[Chorus:]
Our suffering, won't always be
We'll dominate, this nation on fire

The media it
Blinds our eyes
A people divided
And force feds lies
The black and white societies corrode
Warring, hating, blind, a rage explodes

So take my hand across this land
I won't go down, stand my ground

[Chorus]

This nation's built on fighting war after war
And for my brothers, I will fight and stand for
'Cause I won't break, Your truth is fake
If blood ran red, You's leave me for dead
A nation on fire
A nation on fire

You tell me peace, Well I hear gunshots all night
The scars I have, I've earned 'cause I've had to fight
An endless pain, and it won't change
We just sat by, and watched this world die
A nation on fire
A nation on fire

5. Real Lies / Fuck it All

Hate breeds hate my eyes they have seen
the decimation of all that is pure
A system that feeds the machine with
the blood, sweat and money of the poor poor
Corruption gets rich, honesty just exists
'cause nobody cares anymore anymore

Fuck it all
Fuck it all

White attack black, black attack back
the fuckin' media keeps us all blind blind
Children on crack, junkies on smack
you wanna close your eyes to hide hide
Pollution so dense, sickening existence
new world order, new world decline

Fuck it all
Fuck it all

The more the sense of ignorance
The more intense is the pain

Hate breeds hate my eyes they have seen
the decimation of all that is pure pure
A system that feeds the machine with
the blood, sweat and money of the poor poor
Believe in something if it stops your suffering
'cause all we have is nothing nothing

Fuck it all
