For All Kings Lyrics

Submitted by level Mefisto
1. You Gotta Believe (7:32)
You can die screaming
Or you can give me what I want
I’m gonna get it, get it either way
And I can’t let it be
Viciously
Relentless pursuit of vengeance
And I won’t let it be
Viciously

Impaled
You all shall hail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe
Impaled
And I never fail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe

You’re slowly dying
There’s no more lying
I’m not your friend I never was I work alone
And I won’t let it go ‘cause you’re so
Brutal i
In your refusal
I just won’t let it be
Viciously

Impaled
You all shall hail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe
Impaled
And I never fail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe
Impaled
The holy grail
Your goddamned soul is my white whale
You gotta believe, you gotta believe
Impaled
And you all shall hail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe in me
In the small numbers when order sleeps and the streets are mine
It's a time and a place where I can thrive
And burn you with my demon eye
In my life the things I've seen
Inhumanly brutal the worst extreme
I torture me because I can
Obscene the soul of every man
In my life the things I've seen
Inhumanly brutal the worst extreme
I torture you because I can
Ive seen the soul of every man is fucking damned to a fate, and dead if you don’t, and damned if you do, and dead if you won’t
Impaled

Impaled
You all shall hail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe
Impaled
And I never fail
You’re just a bag of blood and I’m holding the nail
You gotta believe, you gotta believe
In me
2. Monster at the End (3:55)
Do you think that you’re worth anything?
Do you think that you had everything?
Or was it just another dream
With a monster at the end
Promised you’d get what you want
But instead you’re getting what you need
This ain’t just another dream
With a monster at the end

Down and under where the damned are riding
Down and under where you pay
Your golden halo is burned and melted
Crown the monster at the end

The wall of sleep is crumbling
And your conscience is left fumbling
A massive sleeping serpent
Uncoiled and awake
In this place, this sun-bleached Hell
Your sins were yours no angel fell
A monster hiding in plain sight
It’s the monster at the end

Down and under where the damned are riding
Down and under where you pay
Your golden halo is burned and melted
Crown the monster at the end

It’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming
The monster is unleashed

Now that crown is on your head
You’re that monster at the end

It’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming, it’s coming
Down and under where the damned are riding
Down and under where you pay
Your golden halo is burned and melted
Crown the monster at the end
It’s coming, it’s coming
Down and under where the damned are riding
Down and under where you pay
Your golden halo is burned and melted
Crown the monster at the end
It’s coming, it’s coming, It’s coming, it’s coming
3. For All Kings (5:00)
For all kings committed
For all kings old and new
Young blood of the old blood
For all kings are through

My insides pulled front to back
Nothing is solved in this act
Teaches you what humanity lacks
Compassion and empathy

Everything tears at, tears away at all else
And all the darkness, inside of my world breathes
And I can’t leave

For all kings committed
For all kings old and new
Young blood of the old blood
For all kings are through

When the noise is gone you're there
Through the storm our souls laid bare
Given all beyond too much
The strongest love lifts me up

As my sky turns black, turns black as if asleep
The king is dead so,
Long live the man in me, by divine right

For all kings committed
For all kings old and new
Young blood of the old blood
For all kings are through

I’d do anything, with all my power brings
I’d do anything
To save you
I’d do anything
4. Breathing Lightning (6:33)
I have walked this world and back now
Too many times to count or stop, how?
Time is nothing, slow and focused
I stalk this land with just one purpose

A deal made the second that you choose to force my will
An extension of my hand with the intent to kill by the white

Lightning

You always have the chance to do the right thing
Until the right thing comes undone
And with a thunderclap I’m breathing lightning
And this world has moved on

My body broken there’s no quit
My will intact and I can’t stop it
Hearts and minds can see the end
Until it all happens again

Like so many before you, you’ll see what death will bring
After me there’s no one else, no angels there to sing just the white

Lightning

You always have the chance to do the right thing
Until the right thing comes undone
And with a thunderclap I’m breathing lightning
And this world has moved on
I look inside myself is this the right thing?
Is this the right thing, I don’t know

Like so many before you, we’ll see what death will bring, can you hear the angels sing? Do you hear the angels sing?
Like so many before you, I’d do anything, just to hear the angels sing, just to hear the angels sing

You always have the chance to do the right thing
Until the right thing comes undone
And then with a thunderclap I’m breathing lightning
And this world has moved on
I look inside myself is this the right thing?
Is this the right thing, I don’t know
5. Suzerain (4:53)
It’s everything, what’s wrong with it?
It’s everything, what’s wrong with us?

Null, rictus grin, beyond death
And it’s after
Me, so insane, suzerain
And he’s calling

Nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over
Come see, with me as everything turns
Nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is solved it only starts over
You’ll see with me as everything burns
What comes after
What comes after me

A history, of love and pain
In this story it’s all the same

Void, rictus grin, stand in sin
Rule the rulers
Blood, on the plains, suzerain
And he’s screaming

Nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over
Come see with me as everything turns
Nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is solved it only starts over
You’ll see with me as everything burns
Nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over
I’ll be set free, free from this memory
What comes after
What comes after me

Nothing is over, nothing is over
You’ll see with me as everything burns
Nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over, nothing is over
I’ll be set free, free from this memory
What comes after, what comes after me
6. Evil Twin (4:40)
Ideology used as a weapon with lines that cut so deeply to the truth
Your head's on the clock and still you threaten
A wretched way of life for those that choose and abuse

Believe, nothing worth believing in
Believe, stand for nothing care for nothing
Believe, empty words a false doctrine
Blooded in your holy word's goal
Look what you did so fucking sick it's what you did
The evil twin of devotion then now you're dead

You represent your discontent slaughtering the innocent
Insolence, you're no martyrs
The arrogance to reinvent
The holy words their meanings bent
Evil twins, you're no martyrs,
(no martyrs)x3

Refuse and resist dictated terror
fighting a war with both feet in
Savage that our planet is the venue
for a festival of massacres

Believe, nothing worth believing in
Believe, stand for nothing care for nothing
Believe, empty words a false doctrine
Blooded in your holy word's goal
Look what you did so fucking sick it's what you did
The evil twin of devotion and now you're dead

You represent your discontent slaughtering the innocent
Insolence, you're no martyrs
The arrogance to reinvent
The holy words their meanings bent
Evil twins, you're no martyrs,
(no martyrs) x3

Broke and sickened by the senseless atrocity
and repulsion for this old world reality
Forcing fear to dominate
hate a loaded gun
When in doubt, have no doubt
death has just begun

You represent your discontent slaughtering the innocent
Insolence, you're no martyrs
The arrogance to reinvent
The holy words their meanings bent
Evil twins, you're no martyrs,
(no martyrs)x3
7. Blood Eagle Wings (7:53)
Everything’s been said, walk among the dead, you can see my crimes, this is my design
There’s no right or wrong, it’s the same old song, just keeps pounding me, hits so hard

Hell is empty, ‘cause all my demons are here
Ever so deadly, hit so hard

Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings
Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings

My whole world built on, bodies dead and gone, you ignored the signs, that was my design
And the loneliness, hits so hard in this, grey place that exists, in my mind

Hell is empty, ‘cause all my demons are here
Ever so deadly, hit so hard

Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings
Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings

I ask you
Why, why fight everything?
Why can’t you accept it?
You can never stop it
And I don’t want to try
A weak half measured lie
I’d rather see it die
I’d rather see it die

I showed you
Why
Why fight everything?
Not what you expected?
Your dystopian epic
of memories are a lie
I don’t have to try
Unfold your wings and fly
I’d rather see it die
I’d rather see it die

Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings
Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings
I show you
I ask you
I show you
Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
I ask you
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings
I show you
Darkness in my soul is taking hold and becoming
I ask you
Break me from this hold as I unfold blood eagle wings
8. Defend Avenge (5:13)
Waking on a bed of nails
Dying wind through shredded sails
Can you hear me when I shout
And nobody knows what I’m talking about

What can I do?
I’m trying to figure it out
Right here right now
Teaching me how

Kill all the ends it’s your cold black revenge
Mark my words
Defend avenge
Break till it bends it’s a means to an end
Defend avenge
You’re all gonna get what you fuckin’ deserve

Defend avenge

Your indifference abounds
Everywhere fence-sitting clowns
Harvesting the seeds of doubt
And nobody knows what I’m talking about

What can I do?
I’m trying to figure it out
Right here right now
Teaching me how

Kill all the ends it’s your cold black revenge
Mark my words
Defend avenge
Break till it bends it’s a means to an end
Defend avenge
You’re all gonna get what you fuckin’ deserve

Defend avenge
9. All of Them Thieves (5:14)
Why, I will destroy everything
Why, I’ll tear your world apart

An honest hand, a shaking fist
Behind your back
Recidivist
And punishment
Your drug addicts
Brought low with shame and
Cut off at the wrist

Why, I will destroy everything
Why, I’ll tear your world apart

All of, all of them thieves
All of, all of them thieves
Lied to cheated beat and deceived
Scarred mistreated a wicked conceit
An evil born of larceny
All of, all of them thieves

Despicable, your motive screams
Vile contempt
An insane dream
A lowlife play
And now you’re stuck
A bankrupt pig with no one left to suck

Why, I will destroy everything
Why, I’ll tear your world apart

All of, all of them thieves
All of, all of them thieves
Lied to cheated beat and deceived
Scarred mistreated a wicked conceit
An evil born of larceny
All of, all of them thieves

I will destroy everything
I’ll tear your world apart

All of, all of them thieves
All of, all of them thieves
Lied to cheated beat and deceived
Scarred mistreated a wicked conceit
An evil born of larceny
All of, all of them thieves

All of, all of them thieves
All of, all of them thieves
This dead hand you gave to me
All of, all of them thieves
This dead hand you gave to me
All of, all of them thieves
10. This Battle Chose Us (4:53)
You give them Hell
Straight to the chin
If you can’t win
Their hearts and minds
On the first try
Up and say aye!
AYE!
They’ll listen

Fires are raging and the sirens scream
And your pathetic life has run out of road
If you were offered eternity
Would it slip through your fingers to wicked to hold?
Rebel
Backslider
Reach higher
You give them Hell
You give them

Hell this ain’t no warning
You give’em hell because you must
It’s a long hard road we’re walking
Because this battle chose us
This battle chose us, this battle chose us

A gang of blood
And by killing so distilling
A simple plan
Never settle our true mettle
Yeah!
They’ll listen
Fires are raging and the sirens scream
And your pathetic life has run out of road
If you were offered eternity
Would it slip through your fingers to wicked to hold?
Rebel
Backslider
Reach higher
You give them Hell
You give them
Hell this ain’t no warning
You give’em hell because you must
It’s a long hard road we’re walking
Because this battle chose us
This battle chose us, this battle chose us

Hell, you give them Hell

You can’t choose your battles, you can’t choose your battles, this battle chose us

You give’em Hell
This battle chose us, you can’t choose your battles

Battle!
11. Zero Tolerance (3:48)
The truth of humanity is far from insane
It’s focused, it’s cruel, it’s heartbreak and pain

As if I needed more reasons to hate
A savage decision that’s not hard to make

Family and friends, dare to threaten what’s mine
I kill motherfuckers for crossing the line

Tighten the noose round my life and I choose
Murder and mayhem ‘cause I’m worse than you

You’re lying and I don’t believe
Your message just so much bullshit
You’re lying and I have no faith
A scab on humanity to be scraped off
You’re vile and no less obscene
Debasing what they find holy
Make yourselves right with your God
I am I am I am I am
(On your knees for)
I am fire I am death and


Judge you as I see fit
Struck down from your bully pulpit
Sticking your head on a pike
I am I am I am I am
(On your knees for)
I am fire I am death and

No one can take what is mine
You’re selling delusion as virtue
Happily suffering the fools
Murder and mayhem ‘cause I’m worse than you
I am I am I am I am

I am fire I am death and I am fire I am death and

Humans kill each other and so often for every reason there is including none
Extreme school, inhuman rule, brutality nowhere to run
I am fire I am death and I am fire I am death and

And on the day you meet your god what will he say?

Zero tolerance for extremism - in the name of religion
Zero tolerance for racial hate - no police state
Zero tolerance for politicians - on the left and the right
Zero tolerance for killing children - what would your god say to that motherfuckers?

The truth of humanity is far from insane
It’s focused, it’s cruel, heartbreak and pain
Tighten the noose round my life and I choose
Murder and mayhem ‘cause I’m worse than you

I am fire I am death and I am fire I am death and

Humans kill each other and so often for every reason there is including none
Extreme school, inhuman rule, brutality nowhere to run

I am fire I am death and I am fire I am death I’m out.
