Mark of the Blade tracks

Lyrics

1. THE VOID

Grinding again
We're the legion of the south
Another year with our name in your mouth
I know how it feels to hate everything
And feel like you're alone
I am here with you just close your eyes
And listen to my voice
Spill your thoughts inside of me
They'll vanish in the void
No one can feel what we feel
This is family
Just let them burn in the fire that we've set on the world
Close your eyes and follow the sound of my voice
We are the void
Where the pain is obsolete
You don't have to feel a thing
Or think that life is not complete
We are the void
Just let go and free your mind
Come with us into eternity
And leave the rest to die
Never again will i be on this earth
Float with me into the void and witness rebirth
The overwhelming beauty takes the air from your lungs
Time doesn't exist we'll stay forever young
When you think you're lost
Close your eyes and follow the sound of my voice
We are the void
You don't have to live a lie
Be yourself and nothing less
Take my hand and we'll watch the world burn from the sky
Take my hand and we'll watch the world burn
And be where we're supposed to be
Take my hand and we'll watch the world burn from the sky




2. MARK OF THE BLADE

I know you can feel it let it in
People will still hate you in the end
So hate back plan the attack
Then they'll realize they can't crack
The mind of a fucking maniac
The voice inside you always wins
Your grave's been dug so lie in it
And commit until the end
For your dear old friend
And i promise that amends will meet
At the end
Why can't i be anything without you
Because your scars will fade
And you'll never age
When you give your life
To the mark of the blade
The cold grasp of the past still haunts me
I will erase everything if you give your life
To the mark of the blade
You can come with me
Or you can stay and grow old
And let the universe swallow
Your rotting soul
Turn a blind eye to everything
Or take a chance
To be blind to model ignorance
The voice inside you never quits
It'll haunt you until your dying breath
So breathe in and breathe out
Reach deep within
And i promise that amends will meet
At the end
Give your life to the mark of the blade
I'll take your name beyond the grave
Give your life to the mark of the blade
I bleed the blood that is cut from the blade
I bear the mark and i won't be a slave
Come with me and be saved




3. ELTIST ONES

It took a long time to realize and admit
That our words don't mean a thing
So keep talking your shit
How can we honestly live in fear
When everyone will die in a hundred years
Respect trust and loyalty
I've gave it out and i've taken it too
But what's the point when everyone
Will secretly think they're better than you
This is what we have become
A self absorbed population of scum
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun
God damn the elitist ones
I've seen it all there's nothing i haven't heard
Just stay at home and remain a coward
And swallow down that salt in your mouth
Because nobody gives a fuck what comes out
One day we'll all regret the things we've said
From here on out don't open your mouth
Show some fucking respect
Show some fucking respect
Karma will come for your neck
I've run out of patience
For so called elitists




4. BRING ME HOME

I close my eyes and count to ten
The seconds turn to years and slowly
I've been recognizing everything
Through an adolescent mind
It's so dark here
For the first time i feel alive
But you're not here
Life it changes
Wake me up and bring me home
Let me stay here forever
I can't see a thing
I'm lying in my bed i can't stop thinking
It's driving me insane
Never got to say goodbye
It's still dark here
And for the first time i feel alive
But you're not here
I'll live on and carry your name
And be what you always thought i could be
I hope we meet at the end
But i'll never forgive the world for taking my
Best friend
I can't see a thing
I can't feel a thing




5. TREMORS

I bet you won't have much to say
When a sledgehammer rares back
And busts you in your face
Pop another pill pretend you're not fake
Come to think of it maybe your life's a mistake
Don't breathe don't speak
I need a moment to think
What you would be without me
You are the bane of everything
Nothing will ever be the same
Don't think that you're better off now
When you have a clean slate
How can you sleep at night
When the earth shakes just self medicate
Two thousand miles away
Even i can feel the earth shake
When you say that everything will be ok
There's nothing left we're facing death
And you still can't admit
That everything won't be ok
They will say it's lonely at the top
But it's a nightmare at the bottom
They'll never stop to think or feel
Don't tell me you're alone
When i'm lying here dying
At the foot of their throne
Misguide me mislead me
Take me away from everyone
That needs me
I'm drowning i'm dying
And you still won't reach me
I'm drowning i'm dying
I'm on my final breath and you still won't reach
If i die you're coming with me
They say it's euphoric anyway
Speak my name and feel the earth shake




6. A KILLING INDUSTRY

It's been a decade
What the fuck makes you think
That my mind is the same
Cause it's time for a change
This is evolution not a solution
To seek out fortune or fame
I would rather kill myself
Than to live my life for someone else
I would rather burn in hell
Than to give my soul to sell
The pressure builds
I'm only hanging by a thread
It's like i've got a gun to my head
This industry is killing me
How many people do i have to please
I'll just stay in this rut
Cause it's easier to just not give a fuck
This industry is killing me
I don't have anymore blood left to bleed
It doesn't matter how deep you cut
Cause it's easier to just not give a fuck
I'm just trying to help you realize
That no matter what everything will die
I've worked my whole life this wasn't luck
Take all you want because i don't give a fuck
I don't owe a thing to you or anyone
Trust me when i say
That i couldn't care less if you were dead
This industry will never be
A place of peace and clarity
I'll just stay in this rut
Cause it's easier to just not give a fuck




7. TORMENTED

The cold air hits my lungs
All is silent
I can't stop biting my tongue
I feel so violent
They say that i'm nothing
That i am better off dead
They're right in my head
But i won't leave this earth without theirs
I hate the man you've made me become
Take responsibility
When it's the innocent one's turn to bleed
What you call normality is everything i want to be
Fuck the world i don't care anymore
All i wanted was a friend not be ignored
I know where you lay your head
It's with the rest of the ones in my basement
Fuck the world i don't care anymore
Shut me down shut me out
Now that the tables have turned
Please tell me how does it feel
That everyone you know and love will be killed
Shut me down shut me out
Now that everyone's dead
Please tell me how does it feel
That everyone you know and love has been killed
Everything i am
Is everything i hate
Because of you
When will people learn
That their words create a flame
That burns forever
You've created a monster
It's growing stronger
We won't be alive much longer
Forget the future the past has come back
So take a moment to hope you're forgiven
I doubt that
You reap what you sow
You pay what you owe
And unfortunately for you it's your soul




8. BROTHERHOOD

(Instrumental)




9. DWELL IN THE SHADOWS

I dwell in the shadows of a past life
And i welcome you to try
To pull my thoughts to the outside
Introverted am i supposed to be a man
That doesn't hold it back
I don't need the spotlight
All i need is to be the man i know i am
I dwell in the shadows of a past life
And i never thought my words
Would change the lives of the mentally disturbed
It's insane to me i help lyrically
It seems you're more fucked up than me
But that's who we are
Mass produced psychos with a million scars
That's who we will be
And you're the ones that made me
Don't ever change
We are who we are and it should remain the same
If you don't want to dwell in the light
Then dwell in the shadows with me
I am a ghost
They never see the side i hate the most
Blackened by the outside
I'm fighting a rising tide
I'm not afraid this is the part of my life
That has made me who i am
And what i am is a tortured soul helping them
To see the light
I am a voice for the people
To relate to my hate
But i'll always dwell in the shadows
Until you call for me
They will call us evil forever they'll shun
But just call my name
And i'll take their tongues
This blade cuts deeper than flesh
It cuts down to the soul
As we dwell in the shadows
I am your voice for them to hear
I am your thoughts i am your fears
We are one and we are all
As we dwell in the shadows
I never thought i could hold on
Or help anyone to get out of the darkness
And stop them from a suicide
I know when you're lost it's hard to find
Any peace for your mind
Let me be your voice
And hold the balance of mankind
May we all find our way
If that day still comes
I'll die the man i always was




10. VENOMOUS

Hypnotized the serpent's eyes
Draw me to the venomous lies
Take me down the path of failure
And to my imminent demise
Ice is flowing through his veins
And his touch gives me a frozen heart
Paralyzed in his eyes i can see hypocrisy
And his noxious grin convinces me
That i'll get what i need do he plants the seed
And immediately i feel invincibility
But it can't be real it doesn't make sense
That i can feel so incomplete
What have you done
I can't move but i feel like i am free
There's blood everywhere
I'm losing my mind this isn't me
This venom flowing through my veins
Has set me free but i'm still wrapped in chains
Emotions are true the words are fake
I've been paralyzed by this venomous snake
This venom flowing through my veins
Consumes my soul but it takes away the pain
Emotions are true the words are fake
I've been paralyzed by this venomous snake
Ice is flowing through his veins
And his touch gives me a frozen heart
I'm breaking down but i must regain
My strength so i can tear us apart
I won't succumb
My body is numb but i'm growing stronger
Now that i have you by your throat
I'll take your life and everything you own
Almighty serpent
You shall serve me now
I've taken the throne
Warn them of my rebirth
I'll conquer this earth and make it my own
I am your master
I own your soul
You are the bastard son of flesh and blood
