"The Beast And The Harlot" This shining city built of gold, a far cry from innocence There's more than meets the eye round here look to the waters of the deep A city of evil There sat a seven-headed beast, ten horns raised from his head Symbolic woman sits on his throne but hatered strips her and leaves her naked The Beast and the Harlot She's a dwelling place for demons She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings Fallen now is Babylon the Great The city dressed in jewels and gold, fine linen, Myrrh and pearls Her plagues will come all at once as her mourners watch her burn Destroyed in an hour Merchants and captains of the world, sailors, navigators too Will weep and mourn this loss with her sins piled to the sky The Beast and the Harlot She's a dwelling place for demons She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings Fallen now is Babylon the Great The day has come for all us sinners If your not a servant you'll be struck to the ground Flee the burning, greedy city Looking back on her to see there's nothing around I don't believe in fairytales and no one wants to go to Hell But we made the wrong decision and it's easy to see Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us Your welcome to the city where your future is set forever She's a dwelling place for demons She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings Fallen now is Babylon the Great She's a dwelling place for demons She's a cage for every unclean spirit, every filthy bird and makes us drink The poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings Fallen now is Babylon the Great "Burn It Down" Jealousy's an ugly word, but you don't seem to care Converse behind my back, but now I'm here Need no one to comply with me though everyone that I defeat Don't need you, fuck camaraderie, this rage will never go away Hatred fuels my blood, I'll burn ya down (you can't help me) One king to watch the horsemen fall, I'll fight 'til the end (I won't help you) I can't trust anyone, see it in my eyes Now I can understand, it's sorrow that feeds your lies You're on my back when the water gets too deep for you to breath A crutch for you that won't always be there Hide in the dark another day, the fear in you is here to stay I can't trust anyone, witness and see it in my eyes Now I can understand, put faith in you for the last time It's sorrow that feeds your lies Run from me before I tear you down (be afraid) You chose the wrong side (it feels so right) I won't help you, let you rot away Run towards the light exposing your soul (we won't be there by your side) Salvation's dying (somebody's crying) We're all gone in the end, sweet child we'll miss you No, so far away Falling away, can't turn back time Burn it down anyway "Blinded In Chains" And we're at it again, I turn around another fucking war, man I don't know where to begin, but I'll start with the radical letters Their steps we're followin' Running, don't go back and fight, too many you'll lose (And as clowns you follow suit behind the blood between the red and white and blue but it's too deep for you to see and everyone eventually will take the step 'cause it's in sight you take the left I'll take the right I feel the hate you've built for me and I say pay attention baby) As they thank the Lord the blind can't see Like a plague fed to the brain deadly disease I'd run away tonight with my mind still intact you gotta make it alright Easier said than done with no place to hide and having no place to (run) Running away from condition, I see you but you're running away from Your scared seductive system But it wasn't a sin, a sorry life in judging every action And as they're feeding your mind with this shit you forgot How to speak how to ask all the questions The business at hand tonight, make the people choose (I see another side in you but there's not much more I can do from on the outside looking in your government is listenin' to push you on the story of immortal father mortal son give them your mind and all your wealth the cycle will rebirth itself) If they had it their way I'd burn in Hell and your future's a fuckin' disaster can't you see Don't give them all the power when your future's in desperate trouble baby Most would claim I live a lie when pointing out it's easy to predict these things Every color has its side, they live together vote but most won't read between these lines Please help us, please save us of coarse they have control we're all the same Up on the cross, crucified their problem drove the nail and let Him rot Family and friends, it won't matter in the end I'm sure they'll understand Now look at the world and see how the humans bleed As I sit up here and wonder "bout how you sold you mind, body and soul Looking at the fields so green I know this sounds obscene I see you're living for tomorrow but decisions you have made will leave you empty You've fallen asleep in denial Look at the way we're dyin' How it ends I'll never know Just live you life blind like me "Bat Country" He who makes a beast out of himself Gets rid of the pain of being a man AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Caught here in a far away place Wont lose my will to stay I tryie.. to drive all through the night The heat's so bad in weather, the bare and empty sights No more ways to see the same The sand is singing tentless words to me "Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (All alone) Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction My confidence is leavin' me on my own (All alone) No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention" Sly-ie... adjust to my new sights So rarely tired lies will take me to new highs My hand is on the trigger. I'm ready to ignite. Tomorrow might not make it, but everything's all right Mental fiction, follow me... Show me what it's like to be set free Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (All alone) Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction My confidence is leavin' me on my own (All alone) No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention been tainted all my visions so unclean now take a trip with me but don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem Caught here in a far away place Won't lose my will to stay These eye's wont see the same After I fill today Sometimes I don't know why We'de rather live than die We've looked up towards the sky For answers to our lives We мая get some solutions But most just pass us by Don't want your absolution Cause I can't make it right I'll make a beast out of myself gets rid of all the pain of being a man Can't you help me as I'm startin' to burn (All alone) Too many doses and I'm starting to get an attraction My confidence is leavin' me on my own (All alone) No one can save me and you know I don't want the attention been tainted all my visions so unclean now take a trip with me but don't be surprised things aren't what they seem "Trashed And Scattered" Keep on writing you're just raping yourself (nothing can take my mind away from them) Don't you ask about me, ask 'bout somebody else (Once I've fallen there's many stories to tell) I can feel it, won't embrace it, It's overwhelming how far ya take it Stuck in a state of questioning) And don't you tell me you know we' re destined You won't convince me, I won't listen (Resentment building, you've put our lives on hold) Trashed and scattered again, I'm feelin' so low You waste your breath while fuckin' with me, my blood is so cold My destination is always unknown, I'll find my way there but Godd*amn Motherfuckers always wasting my time I won't be the victim, but the first to cast a stone Sedated nights to the bar room fights as metropolis takes its toll And don't you try to stop me, it's a place you'll never know Don't try to judge or take shots at me I'll never let you seize control Play your game you better walk away cause your integrity don't mean shit Crawl on me you fucking parasite and I'm gonna take you out Label me, that's fine, I'll be somebody else (Nothing in front of me but holes ahead) Lie about my life, have a story to tell (Lights went down, was on the edge and I fell) Oh you're so insightful, let me remind you to twist and break me, should make you worried (Long way to go and you're right there) Two-faced liar, don't try and know me, deceit brings fire, makes sure you can't breathe (Pick at pieces of my body below) I never bothered with all the rumors too much garbage (all the same) (I know my destination) I'll stand right here Come on you falsehood deceitful liar (There's no shame) Don't ever take my side, I know you're never right, I'll justify the means (Nothing's what it seems) I'll stand around and fight but there's no point tonight been chained to this machine Trashed and scattered again, I'm feelin' so low You waste your breath while fuckin' with me, my blood is so cold My destination is always unknown, I'll find my way there but Godd*amn Impostor are you out of your mind? I walk down these roads alone and now you're seen here My feelings that I'm having towards you are perfectly clear (I control this ride) My devils appetite is tonight and now I'm alright But you Godd*amn Motherfuckers always wasting my time Play your game you better walk away cause your integrity don't mean shit Crawl on me you fucking parasite and I'm gonna take you out I won't be the victim, but the first to cast a stone Sedated nights to the bar room fights as metropolis takes its toll And don't you try to stop me it's a place you'll never know Don't try to judge or take shots at me I'll never let you seize control Don' try and get the best of me (No one can help but your own self) City makes my body ache (Lonely, don't try and prey on me) I feel your world dying, no more use in tryin' And my body's trashed and low but to you I'll never show myself or what's inside And I've seen it all before, but now settle the score Never join your side "Seize The Day" Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over I see my vision burn, I feel my memories fade with time But I'm too young to worry (a melody, a memory, or just one picture) These streets we travel on will undergo our same lost past I found you here, now please just stay for a while I can move on with you around I hand you my mortal life, but will it be forever? I'd do anything for a smile, holding you 'til our time is done We both know the day will come, but I don't want to leave you Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over Newborn life replacing life, replacing all of us, changing this fable we live in No longer needed here so where should we go? Will you take a journey tonight, follow me past the walls of death? But girl, what if there is no eternal life? Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost Its empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over Trails in life, questions of us existing here, don't wanna die alone without you there Please tell me what we have is real So, what if I never hold you, or kiss you lips again? I never want to leave you and the memories for us to see I beg don't leave me (Silence you lost me, no chance for one more day) I stand here alone Falling away from you, no chance to get back home] "Sidewinder" I slide through the wasteland that's my world My hunger takes your life, preyed on to keep me alive, yeah Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty in me Can't you feel the poison rising out of the morning and clear through the night You can feel my strength destroy you straight to the heart from the venomous bite That's right I shed my skin tonight but my fangs are hard to hide And you know that you're going to die, yeah Mercy's all that you need, mercy's empty to me I can't regret, can't escape decisions made for me, no control Fire that buns and never dies, wrapped around I'll bury my fangs inside Making my way through the night you're still in my sight You're runnin' away buy ya know you can't hide My instincts are cold blooded hate; to you I'm the bearer of fate Wrong place and now the wrong time, now terror is all that you'll find Stay inside tonight - you're out there all alone Vanish from my sites - venomous control You can't make it right - my appetite has grown Lost your final fight - no love will be shown "The Wicked End" Man's becoming more corrupt now, godless, wicked, and cruel The soulless man stood silenced, Mary's "word" rang so true Chastisement worse than the flood, spread the word, its all through Don't kill the messenger girl As if we haven't swam enough in this life of misery Voice your prophecy, shed some light feel sorrow for mankids's chance to survive Swallowed lies and swam in your own tears A stab in the dark and it wounded our will We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time We've grown in numbers six hundred sixty six War breaks, a sign of the end, eternally expelled Look to the sky for knowledge, the stars align tonight Eclipse and heaven shall fall Now I know I've seen it all in my life of misery Dust the apple off, savor each bite And deep inside you know Adam was right lust and power, indulgence, no fear Left with is sins, how does this end? We won't be here tomorrow, hold on to me for one last time As the prophets shed the light on what's to come the crowds did gather Your time is precious, they explained, no time to worry, messiah's coming Don't go to sleep tonight, darling, hold me in your arms These will be our final days and I can't let go Walls are falling, churches burning, women ravaged, children crying Flesh is tearing, some still fighting In this world of misery "Strength Of The World" My story starts the day they said "she can't be found" the news so dark, heart stopped, I stood silent without a sound It's over, she's finished, mother lies with my father and sister too Cold-blooded, they suffered, shot down by the outlaws after you Sorrow swallows my screams Strength of the world - is on my shoulders Strength of the world - is on my side Strength of the world - the one true beholder Ice in my veins - for those who've died I've seen my family fade away, you've taken my whole life There's nothing left to say Avenge the dead kill all who cross me in my path Suicidal, I never planned on coming back I want it, I need it, revenge is dripping from my teeth Need nothin', to feel power, and bring the killers to their knees Nothin' ta lose vengeance ta gain (you know I'll never be the same) So taste my breath I'm close behind you (so desperate on your final day) Sorrow swallows my screams Sitting in silence with heaven above me I prayed every night by their graves While I thirst for closure I feel it grow stronger I can't turn my cheek away I stand before you; I'll sin when I have to But now I leave your side, to avenge my family's pride So far forever alone, a greater punishment on me has been imposed A killer falling from the light, I'll miss you my family, I'll never be alright Betrayed" Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go and throw it all away? In my dreams it's me and you, it's there I saw it all come true As time went by, faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do (finish you) I feel it burn inside, burn in me like the rising sun Lifted into the sky, took away the only thing I loved I know after tonight, all your power crumbles in my arms So don't worry, I'll be fine, when my life ends, I'll leave this scar (I fell down, I need you It’s been so hard to take I need, I’m desperate... now) A smoking gun in hand, now don't you realize what you've done Put a bullet in his back, your hero since you were so young How could you kill the man, who brought salvation through your pain He must mean everything, to end it all in this shameful way Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go, and throw it all away? In my dreams it's me and you, it's there, I saw it all come true As time went by, faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do I started here so young and helped you get along Just did it for the love, and people healed through us Don't live your life in vain, don't take it out on me You're cracked, so just remember, I'm not your enemy I don't deserve to fall this way, by a man who felt betrayed I felt so down, now you're around to rescue me Every note and every word, I'm listening (yehh) Sometimes problems seem too deep to take (to deep to take) Sometimes I cry thinking my future looks so bleak Finally, together we were destined I know what's best for us in the end Someone hear me, someone stop me, someone listen, why aren't you listening? Passion in my eyes, I lived it everyday, but how could you go, and throw it all away? In my dreams it's me and you, it's there I saw it all come true As time went by, faith in you grew, so one thing's left for me to do In my dreams it’s me and you, its there I saw it all come true As time went by, faith in you grew, so one things left for me to do M.I.A." Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise. Living another day in disguise. These feelings cant be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight, on tonight. Ooooo.. Stand up and fight. Now fighting rages on and on, to challenge me you must be strong. I'll walk your land but don't belong, two million soldiers can't be wrong. It's now gone but I'd been here before. I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war. (Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things) Some are scared others killing for fun, I shot a mother in front of her son. (Take this from my consciousness and please erase my dreams) Fight for honor, fight for your life. Pray to God that our side is right. You know we won but still we lose, until I make it home to you. I see your mother still in tears we grew up so fast where did those years go. Memories wont let you cry unless i don't return tonight. So many soldiers on the other side, I take their live so they don't take mine. (Scared to make it out alive now murders all i know.) Nobody tells me all the reasons were here, I have my weapon so there's nothing to fear . (Another day another life but nothing real to show for.) Fight for honor, fight for your life. Pray to God that our side is right. You know we won but still we lose, until i make it home to you. I see your mother still in tears we grew up so fast where did those years go. Memories wont let you cry unless i don't return tonight. Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise. Living another day in disguise. These feelings cant be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight. Watching the death toll rise wondering how im alive. Strangers blood on my hands, showed all i can. There are no silent nights watching your brothers all die To destroy all their plans with no thought of me. (No thought of me) No thought of me. Ohhhhh... We'll walk the city lonely, memories that are not passing by. A murderer walks your streets tonight. Forgive me for my crimes. Don't forget that I was so young, but so scared. In the name of God and Country.
