Metus Mortis
(Instrumental)
 
 
Blind Suffering
Looking back I smile at the voices in my head,
That always said to keep this place secret
A spell that allows me to see
Because of all the subtle words,
I hear you scream

I've tread and spanned the horizon
To cross the blood red
I strike down the faceless and unknown
Now I'm branded

I fall down into your own despair
Voices within
Show me how and show me where
Blind suffering

Let me in, get me out
Lost my soul without a trace
Found it again in my secret place

The final tear
Will be lost in rain
First comes the light
Then comes the pain

My body trembles in fear
No longer controlled
Watching my dreams disappear
In the palace of gold
 
 
Shadowland
I am the one, I can turn to the sun
Here in my own destiny
I used to bleed, like a suicide I need,
How come, I'm my own enemy

Don't you have the strength,
No desire for shore,
Weakened by the haze
I discovered your weakness
I'm heading to fall
Returning to hit your face

I'm looking over my shoulder
So I see...

Do you hear, I'm the fear of a shadowland
Kiss the dirt, taste the pain,
Your heart in my hand
And it hurts in my brain, and my head would spin,
Let me down, don't give up, don't give in

Never alone, never too far,
Now when I'm here on my own
Cut off my pride, but I'm still alive
Watching the daylight to come.

Thrown to the gallow, forgotten and sore
Nothing's forever and so we ignore
Come see sadness you never saw
I'm something a painter drawn

I like the way that you let me in your dreams
 
 
Checkmate in Red
So empty inside and I'm loosin' my pride
Thrill exploding out of me

Down to the ground and my head's full o'sound
No innocence between

A victim of circumstance
Never had a chance
Sacrificed without a fight

Carry on with this lie
No matter how hard I try
Suffering one last time

And you don't know
I'll touch and add you to my fame
Welcome to my wonderland

I'll never understand why
Have I lived before
The illness and lies
The virus never dies

Rain may fall 'round me
I can't drawn me out
It's my last final step
Checkmate in red

Trying to make a stand, trying to hold a hand
As my bridges burn to the ground
I violate and I think I feel hate
As I stare my demons down

I kept you under the sun
Away from the cold
I sheltered you from the storm
The evil alive, no guiding, no hide
I see the look inside

My magic hand
Will strike you down
And rule the land
I'll take the crown
 
 
Hollow Hideaway
A bleeding heart, a seal of fate
There is no crime, I'll re-instate

Love is a weakness, Lust conquers all
Cross my soul and hope to die
Where do you draw the line?

Enter my mind, can you stop the rage
No one shall mourn or pity your grave

Believe the lie, the line that you toe,
If you just do, do as you're told

The meaning of lust
The soul of life
When you're screaming from the sky
It's now or never
Inside your brain
It's a hollow hideaway

Out of pride, I'll isolate my fears
Never turned my back on why you were here

Mapped out in scars, look to the skies
Your only salvation, so close your eyes
 
 
Weakness Shows Its Seed
To find myself again,
The walls are closing in
Everything I make seems to take

Buried inside you,
Strangers I once knew,
When no one would take the blame

I put my trust in you,
Pushed as far as I go
And for all reasons
There's only one thing you should know

Never mind the unseen, clouds fill my head
Blind without truth in a word
Watching over your steps
Weakness sows its seed
And I still can't sleep

I'm insane underneath your breath,
Who was supposed to feel the shame
It doesn't feel the same
As I feel no pain
There's no choice
Better hear my voice

I found escape through dreaming,
Have I been this before,
And then came the pouring rain

Feeling the reaching over me,
My black sky
Wondering what ever could it be

I try to hide away
There's no shelter to find
I've felt this way before,
So insecure
 
 
Into the Never
You know it's much too late,
'Cause your destination ends ahead
Where the water turns to steam
Into a suicide machine

Capture the moment before it's gone
You've got the strength to carry on
Not always knowing, what's wrong or right
Your only choice is to decide

I'm back to take for you the blame
Here to receive for you the shame - into the never

Fingers of fire, coal and lead
Fondly love me till you're dead
Now you never will believe
You're dying to leave

Don't you feel my twisted mind
All you got is hate for mankind
Caught in a spiral, into the black
No need to see, cause I'll be back!
 
 
Under Lights
What do we need and where do we go
When we get where we don't know
Tell them what they wanna hear
But what's the meaning

Always knew it was them or me
I always knew what I wanted to be
So many things I just can't explain
Is this the reason.

Too much tension brings me down
Touched and found and turned around

I'm really lost in fear and sin,
Thinkin' how it might have been
Speaking my mind to those who find
Under lights made me blind

Read the rights a prophet's word,
We've learned to deal with the absurd
Scorching the edge of your soul
Lust of season

Forgotten heroes, piles of dead
Colors change from green to red
Hurt's so bad, it's been so long.
I'm coming home

Taste the blood that I long for
A beating heart, slow and sure
Bless my soul, time has come
Innocence been long gone

All the wrongs just can't be right
Hear me scream and feel my bite
 
 
Cycles
Who do you wanna believe
Where do you want me to hide
You just can't escape your past
A vision from your mind

What do you think, and what do you see
What do you read in their eyes
The promise cast, the hopeful lured
Stabbing by the pointed words

Make me
Help me try to understand
Hate me
Just because of who I am

Over the walls
Where all your memories are lost forever
Hiding in your soul
I've seen it all before
Into the madness of the unknown now or never
Cycles forevermore

Why do you tell what you feel
Why do trust in the lies
High paid thief, another vote
Sharpened lies cut your throat

Lack of faith and hell awaits
Would be my destiny
For what you feel is right and sane
Instinct stifled be ashamed

Leave me
Believe me, emotions are running low
Break me
My hate that always grows

Save me
Sacrifice me, soon my reign will end
Heal me
Control me as my tears descend
 
 
Behind
If only I could trace that light
To ignore the blind
But you don't know
So go ahead and find your sight
I'm out of my mind and now it's time,
To count the bodies dead
Last thing you know
A place to go you better check your head
You can never justify, no more reasons to excuse,
And you never can deny (all the tricks you try)
I can't understand, what's between you and me
And I feel no shame what I used to be
So I try to hide and deny my thoughts
What I keep inside, I'll never look behind
Hold your head up, bite your tongue
So you dig your own grave
Speak your mind or sell your soul
Stand before you fall
I've walked upon the water
Without even getting wet
And there's really not a thing
That I regret
Everything I used to be has spiraled into insanity
Every night I sweat and bleed
 
 
Meet Me in the Dark
This temple that's built so well
To separate us from ourselves

The shadows of fear, now over the land
In pain will your life surely end
Your addiction has brought you here
The consequences are too clear
Meet me in the dark

Your face is nothing than a transparent fixture,
Perception is nothing but a distorted picture
Now you resent what you became
The reality of only you to blame

Who's in your mind and who will command?
Now you'll face the truth and understand

My heart, my hand, always reaching.
Without you within, I was searching.

Meet me in the dark
Full moon is burning down
Meet me in the dark
My infection is going around
 
 
Strength of Will
You came to see, but you can't believe
Forever creation has conceived
The echoes of fate, a voice from the past
Innocence lost so long ago, until the last

Have your own god to whom you pray
Just let you be your own way
To show what you have done
That shows what you've become

It's like religion without believe
So they're forever in your mind

You loose your pride and face
My wounds are bleeding still
Your mind starts to fry
Strength of will

Born to a world, so young and proud
But over your head hangs a cloud
To build up around them a infinite wall
Don't you know just who you are

Within a world of hate
There's no trust and there's no end

All pain sifts through your soul
You feel your back against the wall

You loose your pride and face
Your eyes open wide
Your mind starts to fry
Ripping inside
 
 
Face Down
A little bit of love to grow 
Give me a sign, I need to know 
I've seen the way you've been stealin' with those eyes 
When all is said and done, time marches on

Here in my deepest dream
Running through another scene
Any trip I make
No matter what it takes.

I cannot take the blame
For thoughts you send 
But I can't play the game 
Around the bend 

Do you understand why 
Exploring all the fear you hide
Head strong I know, that I'll prevail 

After you left behind
All the tears that you've cried
Face down in my arena you'll fail

I'll get my independence free and clear
When this day comes I'll disappear
Someone take this cold from me
Let my mind run free it used to be

The trust I had has died all my words been proven lies
My senses under siege
Ingest the virtues I feel

A far, hidden place
It makes me feel safe...
Consuming all you can
Wealth and stature makes a man

So now you know my name
Inside my mind
I am a man insane
My fear, my lust is all you find
 
 
Don't Wait for Me
(by Vicious Rumors.)
Silent surroundings, black skies
On top of broken trust

A face frozen with fear
In memories dreams are lost

Can a device, read my mind
Just look in my eyes

Black as pitch
The picture is there
(To horrify) but why should I care

Raising hell and they're ready forfighting
I know
By the greed of a thirsty God
War
Hunting humans and drinking white lightning
My fear
No you ain't got enough

Shifting Shadows in a demons race
Edge of chaos, cross God's face
They have watchers everywhere
But you don't know.
(You will never know)

Never born of the seed
Took life from a barren hand
Come from greed
Like a child in the form of a brokenman

Sadness in the heart
Like a storm that ripped apart
Walk through the ashes of man
Will there never be an end
