Symbol of Salvation Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Reign of Fire (3:57)
Fantasize exploding hands
Archaic science
Master plan
Hear the war cry
Watch the crow fly
When your body's set
It never fails
Then you hear the tale of tales

Bound and gagged
You're in a reign of fire
Spells and magic
In the reign of fire

Complacency with all
A strong need to bathe in gall
Hear the war cry
Watch the crow fly

When your body's set
It never fails
Then you hear the tale of tales

Bound and gagged
You're in the reign of fire
Spells and magic
In the reign of fire
Feel the hexes
In the reign of fire
Find what sex is
In the reign of fire

I sold my soul
To give to you
I sold my soul L
et me pull you through
Never fails
It never fails

Feel the hexes
In the reign of fire
Find what sex is
In the reign of fire
2. Dropping like Flies (4:39)
Any minute the sparks will fly
At that point you will see fear in their eyes
It don't take much to send them crawling back
Just a harsh word then you attack
Gather up and
Take a sigh
See them dropping
Dropping like flies
Find revenge as
Sweet as pie
See them dropping
Dropping like flies
Some call them noble but I say they're scum
Put them in control see what you become
No excuses for lack of brains
You had your chance now you can't complain

Gather up and
Take a sigh
See them dropping
Dropping like flies
Find revenge as
Sweet as pie
See them dropping
Dropping like flies
See them dropping
Dropping like flies

Dropping
Smashing
Dying
Down

Can't you see 'em up there
Up on their hill so high
Close enough for gunfire
Shoot 'em down to size
Long way down

Gather up and
Take a sigh
See them dropping
Dropping like flies
Find revenge as
Sweet as pie
See them dropping
Dropping like flies
3. Last Train Home (5:19)
When lonely winds blow cold
And my world moves down below
It's a sign to make a change
Among the platform crowd
Words clear as clouds
Say you can't remain the same

And familiar voices cry
my name
I'm on the last train home
On the last train home

Crossroads of my life
Feel my body glide
To a place I need to be

It's within my sights
I know it'll feel so right
When I get there I'll be free

Still those voices call
my name
But I'm on the last train home
On the last train home
On the last train home

Ride with the freight line
Ride with the freight line
There I go
Gotta make time
I gotta make time
I'm aboard

Boxcar wonder
Every scar shows
Where the future lies
Lord only knows

I'm on the last
Last train home
On the last train home
I'm on the last train home
On the last train home
I'm on the last train home
On the last train home
Last train home Yeah,
last train home

It's within my sights
I know it'll feel so right
When I get there I'll be free
4. Tribal Dance (4:07)
Colombian cartel
Coca paste potent smell
Boats off for San Pedro
Good work men! Bring my dough
Tribal dance
Tribal dance
It's a full moon yeyo de coca
Son of a milacka
Give me money then we'll do the tribal dance

Distribute USA
Demand is high today
Coffee beans were our trade
But the market Prefers cocaine

Tribal dance
Tribal dance I
t's a full moon yeyo de coca
Son of a milacka
Give me money then we'll do the tribal dance

Waiting for you
Come dance with me
That's the motto of the biggest party
Major supply
Families cry
When you gonna wake up open your eyes
The imported good is making America die

Rich Colombian man
Builds a zoo on his land
As long as we crave more
He'll dance
And win the drug war

Tribal dance
Tribal dance
It's a full moon yeyo de coca
Son of a milacka
Give me money then we'll do the tribal dance
5. The Truth Always Hurts (4:20)
Yes you should have seen her face
Straight out of Peyton Place
Pseudo movie star
Total disgrace
Beggin' on her hands and knees
Won't you just love me please
I've got my life to lead
Lead yours as well

Beautiful home
White picket fence
Fairytale
The pain starts When the Quaalude ends

Learn to pacify
Then you justify
Never satisfied
The truth always hurts

Well I woke up in heavy sweat
The sheets stretched I was soaking wet
A light bulb in my sleep
Went off in my head

Two places at one time
Can't be done by mankind
I hate to say I'm feeling confined

From the top of the world to a sunken ship
No in between
Karma sure can be a frazzled trip

Learn to testify
Can't be rectified
Ain't no lullaby
The truth always hurts

Learn to pacify
Learn to qualify A
lways mortified
The truth always hurts
Bet your ass

One day you're king of the world
Indestructible T
hen you're knocked off your pedestal

Just been crucified
Harmed and horrified
Ain't no alibi
The truth always hurts

Time to occupy
Simply no deny
Better say goodbye
The truth always hurts

Learn to pacify
They you justify
Never satisfied
The truth always hurts

The story goes on and on and on
Somebody else will be a victim
The ends is here
It's a fact of life
The truth always hurts
6. Half Drawn Bridge (1:26)
Instrumental
7. Another Day (5:32)
Fading moments
Fill up my eyes so wide
I don't know why things are Strange
But there's a will
And my way
Is Roaming light
Roaming light
Roaming light

Please let me buy
Another day
Please let me try
To find another day

I'm riding a wave
That's moving too slow
And it seems there is a void in my Life, yeah Life

But there's a will
And my way
Is Roaming light
Roaming light
Roaming light

Please let me buy
Another day
Please let me try
To find another day

Please let me buy
Another day
Please let me try
To find another day

I feel the need Down deep inside
To get out of here
And disappear

Please let me buy
Another day
Please let me try
To find another day

Please let me buy
Another day
Please let me try
To find another day
Another day
Another day
Another day
I've got to find a way
Won't you lead today
Got to find Another day
8. Symbol of Salvation (4:36)
Go ahead
Explain
Tell me what you plan to be
The future
Go ahead
Explain
Tell me what you plan to see
The future

I've been waiting here for you all
What took you so long
Symbol of salvation

Who's the symbol of Salvation
What's the symbol of Salvation

Is honesty truly another word
For justice
Honesty is truly another slur
On justice

I've been waiting here for you all
What took you so long
Symbol of salvation

Who's the symbol of Salvation
What's the symbol of Salvation

Hear the knave
With information
With a knave
Is wrong direction
No it's not the
Symbol of salvation

Follow my lead
I'll show you the way
For the future
Follow my lead
We'll digest world decay
For the future

I've been waiting here for you all
What took you so long

Symbol of salvation
Who's the symbol of Salvation
What's the symbol of Salvation
9. Hanging Judge (3:45)
I realize
That my life tonight
Must deal with fate
Painful
Dwelling
I can't fight the feeling
I won't hold a grudge
I'll face the hanging judge
No reason to stall
You might as well call
The hanging judge

I have a soul
That's been lost in the climb
Too many times

Painful
Dwelling
Only left wondering

I won't hold a grudge
I'll face the hanging judge
No reason to stall
You might as well call
The hanging judge

I emphasize
That my final goal
Has been made

Painful
Dwelling
Hear my voice yelling

I won't hold a grudge
I'll face the hanging judge
No reason to stall
You might as well call
The hanging judge
The hanging judge
The hanging judge

You might as well call
The hanging judge
10. Warzone (3:38)
When I dream I see movies in my head
I always have the starring role
But the scenery is never quite clear
Cause the film is growing old
But I just roll them dice
And I pray for snake eyes

Lonely warzone
That I defend
Lonely warzone
My only friend

Insanity is the word I plead
Cause the trenches are all filled up
With the bodies of men who used to laugh with me
They just got shot like sitting ducks

But I just roll them dice
And I pray for snake eyes
Lonely warzone
That I defend
Lonely warzone
My only friend

It's a bloody fighting
How I feel it
It's a bloody fighting
Won't you yield it

But I just roll them dice
I keep on rollin

Lonely warzone
That I defend
Lonely warzone
My only friend
Lonely warzone
That I defend
Lonely warzone
My only friend
11. Burning Question (4:18)
Her painted stare
Her silky hair H
er ghostly glare
Burns holes everywhere
I waited long
I held out strong
One step beyond
On my mind all day long

I want to blame uncontrolled desire
It set my fury free
The level of my need shot up higher
Confused my mind guaranteed

She's a burning question
Does the answer lie up ahead B
urning question
The eternal flames fire red

My make believe
It made me leave H
ad to achieve
Every part of her that breathed I

want to blame it all on obsession
It set my fury free
It's a fine line between possession A
nd smothering at the seams

She's a burning question
Does the answer lie up ahead
Burning question
The eternal flames fire red

It's got the shrewd man mesmerized
Perplexed and hypnotized
The rule of thumb sure ain't on the rise

Lost
Losing control
Raging up from my soul
Violence is in command
Her life is in my hand
Inside my hand

I want to blame uncontrolled desire
It set my fury free T
he level of my need shot up higher
Confused my mind guaranteed

She's a burning question
Does the answer lie up ahead
Burning question
The eternal flames fire red

It's got the shrewd man mesmerized
Perplexed and hypnotized
The rule of thumb sure ain't on the rise

Burning question
Burning question
Burning question
12. Tainted Past (7:04)
The cynical view that has been taken
Is blowing my mind
I can't seem to piece it all together
I guess it takes time to unwind
To let the dust settle
And let cooler heads prevail
Each and every day I rise
From the ashes I've left behind
To start anew push through
They say it's not meant to be
Well I'm parting the sea

Got to let go
Move on from a tainted past
I'll never know
Fall out from a tainted past

The selfish greedy world we live in
Is making me mad
It's always give me every marble
Then kiss my ass

Each and every day I rise
From the ashes I've left behind
To start anew push through
If you go for the green Y
ou'll soon see what I mean

Got to let go
Move on from a tainted past
I'll never know
Fall out from a tainted past

Tainted past
Why should anyone finish last

Tainted past
You needn't be a saint
All you need is lots of cash

Why did it end this way
I'll never understand
Why my world is grey

When you combine heartache
With misery
Sets up a challenge
For destiny

Each and every day I rise
From the ashes I've left behind
To start anew push through T
hey say it's not meant to be
Well I'm parting the sea

Got to let go
Move on from a tainted past
I'll never know F
all out from a tainted past
13. Spineless (4:19)
Weakness shines
Right off the teeth of your pathetic smile
Nerve is gone T
he minute I turn my back the weasel runs
Spineless
That's what you are
Spineless Seven year itch
Spineless
You're so bizarre
Spineless Son of a bitch

Overthrow
They'll aim for the apple on your head but shoot too low
Say your prayers
Can't find room on this earth for you anywhere

Spineless
That's what you are S
pineless Seven year itch
Spineless
You're so bizarre
A Spineless
Son of a bitch

Spineless

Spineless fool
You are no exception to the rule
Heed these words
Stand up now or be the eternal nerd

Spineless
That's what you are
Spineless Seven year itch
Spineless
You're so bizarre
Spineless Son of a bitch

Spineless
That's what you are
Spineless Seven year itch
Spineless
You're so bizarre
Spineless Son of a bitch
