Lyrics


1. PARADISE LOST

Two Powers
Have brought us to
Our final hours
A day in the desert
Devours
Hundreds of lives
Millions of Dollars

We’re a nation
Unable to pass up
The temptation
Of universal domination
Heaven and Hell
Subjugated

You can tell us that the world is going to end
You can tell us that the atmosphere is broken
The truth is always more than man can bear
Just tell me when, that’s all I really care about

One leader
Leading us into
A disaster
Falling from grace
Faster and faster
Still wondering
Who could be his master ?

Good and evil
Brought to the flesh
For a battle
Spiritual power
Carnal struggle
Millions of bodies
Become chattel

You can tell us that the world is going to end
You can tell us that the atmosphere is broken
The truth is always more than man can bear
Just tell me when, that’s all I really care about

How long until sand turns to soil ?
How long until blood turns to oil ?
When will another son rise ?
Enter in the anti-antichrist
How long until Hell becomes a paradise lost ?

We’re a nation
Unable to pass up
The temptation
Of universal domination
Heaven and Hell
Subjugated

Good and evil
Brought to the flesh
For a battle
Spiritual power
Carnal struggle
Millions of bodies
Become chattel




2. BLOOD STORM

Roll in like a thunder cloud
Take you down, you look too proud
No one is spared
In the wake I create
A killer on the loose
Pop your head into my noose
Everything is laid waste
I devastate

Hear me – I’m rolling thunder
Feel me – as I pull you under
My spell can’t be broken
Now you see me, now you don’t
Wrap your mind around a stone
Drop you in an ocean of grief

But it feels good
Like you know it should
An hour of Heaven
Eternity in Hell
My stainless steel fangs
Will give you a bang
For your buck,
Give a fuck anymore ?

Hear me – I’m rolling thunder
Feel me – as I pull you under
My spell can’t be broken
Now you see me, now you don’t
Wrap your mind around a stone
Drop you in an ocean of grief




3. VOODOO DOLLS

I’m broken
Words spoken
Ring in my ears
You let me down
Though we made a deal
You were never for real

Shadows in
My mind are
All I have left
Blinded by my greed
I thought that you were
All I’d ever need

[Chorus]
Voodoo Dolls

I gave
Myself as a slave
God knows you bled me dry
I thirsted for more
And you led me on
How you fed me on

Whispers
Tremors
That shook me like a doll
Now the pins are in too deep
I’m burning, I’m burning
Burning in my sleep

[Chorus]




4. BURIED ALIVE

Death grip
Around my throat
Heart pounding
At the end of my rope
Ten tons
Laying on my chest
How can it be
That I’ve imagined this ?

Night falls
But I can’t go down
Endless thoughts
Spinning around and around
In my head
Raise the dead
It’s like I’m buried alive
Dirt walls
Closing in on me
Preacher
Giving a eulogy
In my head
Raise the dead
I’m buried alive every night.

Eyes wide
Staring into a pine box
Heart racing through time
On a death clock
No air
Can’t catch any breath
Face to face
With the moment of death

Kick, shout
Let me out
Too young to die
Yet, here I lie
Is it a rebirth ?
Taste the damp earth
In a cold dark womb

Night falls
But I can’t go down
Endless thoughts
Spinning around and around
In my head
Raise the dead
It’s like I’m buried alive
Dirt walls
Closing in on me
Preacher
Giving a eulogy
In my head
Raise the dead
I’m buried alive every night.




5. COUNTING ZEROS

The days have grown long
And the nights have grown cold
We once were young and strong
Now we’re weakened and old

We came to this land
In search of freedom
And put in its place
A new breed of kingdom

Alive, but we’re dying
We’re silent, but we’re crying out in pain
Been waiting for a savior to rise again
Once this was a place for heroes
Now they’re all just counting zeros, and my life
Is nothing more than a line in the sand

They put out our eyes
With visions of grandeur
And cut out our tongues
With the bitter taste of failure

They covered our ears
With the promise of freedom
And we ransomed our souls
For Gods we believed in

Alive, but we’re dying
We’re silent, but we’re crying out in pain
Been waiting for a savior to rise again
Once this was a place for heroes
Now they’re all just counting zeros, and my life
Is nothing more than a line in the sand

Now I ask you, can we stand up as one
And go after our freedom
Rectify the façade
Of a free nation
Destroy the golden shackles
Awaiting our children

Alive, but we’re dying
We’re silent, but we’re crying out in pain
Been waiting for a savior to rise again
Once this was a place for heroes
Now they’re all just counting zeros, and my life
Is nothing more than a line in the sand




6. CAUGHT IN THE ARC

In the dark
there is a flame
Give it life
or let it dim, yeah
Death may come
to those who wait
But death is here
For those that hate
Flip the switch
Turn it on.

[Chorus]
Light the fire inside your head
I’ll give you wisdom
Light the fire inside your brain
Open your mind
Light the fire under your soul
I’ll make you holy
Caught in the arc of the flame

In the light
There is a shadow
The blackened seeds
Of your tomorrows, yeah
You may choose
To shut your eyes
In the end you lose
Don’t you realize
Life is short?
Death is eternal.

[Chorus]

The seed is sown
The bird has flown
The pain’s your own
Now you’re all alone
Come with me
I’ll set you free
If you’re caught
In the arc of the flame




7. HIGH AND MIGHTY

High and mighty
Separate
From the guidelines of Government
Better than the
Weaker flesh
Tapping power
In Holiness
Put a man
In charge of that
Recipe for any
Zealot
Leading millions
In a trance
That I call
The Denial Dance

[Chorus]
Lie after lie
Another soldier dies
And still you’re so high
And mighty
What does it take
To get the trance to break ?
I want to be high
And mighty.

High and mighty
On your throne
Can’t leave other
Folks alone
Got to prosletize
The Word
Jesus saves
Haven’t you heard ?
Get yourself back
In the womb
Leave behind that
Darkened tomb
Born again
Go get in line
Your momma messed it up
The first time

[Chorus]




8. SACRED OATH

Where you gonna go ?
Where you gonna hide ?
Where you gonna run to ?
Where you want to die ?
Call your God
Call your demons
Call your mama
Whomever you believe in

Don’t give up
Put up a fight
Don’t back down
Use all your might
I’ll tear your heart
Burn your brain
An innocent thought
Becomes insane

You’ve been dying since the day you were born
It’s an oath I know you’ve been sworn
I’m fighting for your soul
One of us will get it when you lose control

Now you’re dead
In your grave
And your soul
Couldn’t be saved
Called your God
Called your demons
Called your Father
Whom you believed in

A Sacred Oath
Is what you’ve taken
A Sacred Oath
Is what you’re breaking




9. SCOURGE OF SIN

I can’t stop
Being what I’m not
Though my soul may rot
It’s easier this way

I try to find
My peace of mind
Through eyes made blind
Am I evil ? Who’s to say ?

I see you walking in the park
I blend right in, we’re in the dark
You come to me in innocence
I come for you fast as a shark

Death may triumph
This life I’m in
Roots run deep
In the scourge

I can’t stop
Being what I’m not
Though my soul may rot
It’s easier this way

I try to find
My peace of mind
Through eyes made blind
Am I evil? Who’s to say ?

I had my chance when we were young
You chose the church
I chose the fun
We went our own ways
And now we meet again, don’t run

Away from me
You can’t get free
Roots run deep
In the scourge of sin

I lost my way
Didn’t want to be found
A vicious cycle
Spinning round and around
And now there’s no hope
For getting me straight
Can’t live for love
I only live to hate

And now you’re choking in my grip
I tied the knot, won’t let it slip
Put out the flame
Yes, I’m insane

Death may triumph
This life I’m in
Roots run deep
In the scourge

I can’t stop
Being what I’m not
Though my soul may rot
It’s easier this way

I try to find
My peace of mind
Through eyes made blind
Am I evil ? Who’s to say ?




10. HUNT FOR THE FALLEN ANGEL

A blackened sky
And the rising tide
Meet in the desert
Of the Fallen Ones

The hunt begins
For the banished king
Led by disciples
Of the chosen Son

The fall from grace
Into this lonely place
Has made him bitter
And elusive

An angel scorned
He is reborn
And his reign
Will be divisive

[Chorus]
A holy war will unfold
A prophetic end was foretold
Still the ride will bring us
To the Gates of Hell
In the hunt for
The fallen angel

The storm grows fiercer
As the sleet pierces
Through the fog
Like poison arrows

We’re on the scent
Of the heaven-sent
And the howls
Are getting nearer

Death on the wing
The hellions sing
As they pick us apart
One by one

The path is littered
With the lifeless flesh
Of those that came
Before us.

[Chorus]
