Martial Law Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Eagles
1. The Rapture (3:50)
Judgement day has come to your town
rippin you away into the abyss
where souls are in dispair, drawning in liquid fear
You wont be able to prevent
that your time has come
floating in your ancestors blood!

Hail redemption, give up and surrender now!
revelations of the final hours
you'll be taken from earth to be weighed
taste the infinite DEATH!

THE RAPTURE!

Cleansing will Commence before your eyes,
death stalks the land, you are beyond saving
hail, fire and brimstone, unearthly powers of fierce destruction
swept by death no one left to mourn
these plains will be left to waste
all will be dead be dawn!

Paralyzed with Fear, crimson eclipse, of the sun
heaven has been set ablaze
altars of fire, hurled on the earth
horns will sound, none will ascend
face of demise, unveiled from above
the Planets have aligned, for the cosmic holocaust

Hail redemption, give up and surrender now!
revelations of the final hours
you'll be taken from earth to be weighed
taste the infinite DEATH!

THE RAPTURE!
2. Proxy Warfare (3:24)
Taking advantage of the crisis, geopolitical war
occupation becomes protectorate, protecting those who obey
exploiting the tensions, between masses and oligarchs
fighting their wars on foreign soil, victims of

Proxy warfare!
fought by a deputy!

History is written by the victors of the war
murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers
justice has, and will always, be the call for war,
annihilation of the masses, spreading from the core!

Mercenaries raised by mother war, masters using them
both against their enemy and themselves
practical use of a fictitious enemy, soon a fictional ally
fighting their wars on foreign soil, victims of
3. Kukulkan (2:44)
Arrived in the west
the great god, the feathered serpent
he's on a quest
the bringer of civilization

Watch the work of the great giver of names
Skin pale as death, pet of the sun-god

Strange he may look
his actions remembered as divine
on his return
the prophecy will come true

Years will be gone when the white man returns
Men with guns, blood will be spilled
on the temples of the ancient gods!

KUKULKAN! KUKULKAN!

He flew to the sky
where the suns pride burnt his tongue
his tail moves the rain
predicting where it will fall

Watch the work of the great giver of names
Skin pale as death, pet of the sun-god

KUKULKAN! KUKULKAN!

Arrived from the east
the great god, the feathered serpent
sacred is the beast
the bringer of civilization

Years will be gone when the white man returns
Men with guns, blood will be spilled
on the temples of the ancient gods!

KUKULKAN! KUKULKAN!
4. Downfall of an Age (3:54)
Downfall of an age
Reborn, Ironcage

Thera is set ablaze
empires fell from grace
violent, sudden and cultural destruptive
black clouds frozen in the strata
warriors of the sea
revolt and slavery
their disaster, our opputiunity

Death, fire, assault, from the ocean
fire, assault, from the mountain
fire, assault, on the masses
fire, assault, by the chosen

The weel of aeons
churning the gears
new swords being forged
reconstructive fears
for armies on dusty plains
dark age begins again
myths of kings that turned
to heritical gods of men
5. 2083 (3:37)
Current crusader, among templar Knights
armed for war, first out of countless fights
dragged into the daylight, through abhorrent sacrifice

Lake of blood - camp of death.

Dressed to protect, out to attack
sobs will echo forever, no one is coming back
fascist one-man squad, redeemer, crusader, maniac!

mauling minds of helpless children, a fierce holocaust of wills
collective manipulation, that one person fulfills
the real danger of terror, invented fear that kills
6. Forced Retaliation (2:06)
Instrumental
7. Battery by Authority (4:12)
Death and destruction, long time no see
history is repeating it self
victims escaping across the sea
security measures from the shelf
where the masses are hit by austerity enforced by
the trigger-happy maniacs, installed to serve and protect!

Battery by authority!
A misdemeanor or a felony?!

So you tell me, we can't assemble to let opinions be heard?
you gonna beat us to make sure your boss wont get hurt
recreational behaviour answered with force
by those who enable the laws
restrain the people, treat them as filth
riots, cure to the cause!
8. Evil Offspring (2:29)
Feared are the sons of Anak
Those from the adamantine
seeing the beauty of daughters of men
feared are the sons of Anak
taking wifes and making mothers of them
sons of god, children of men
teaching us destruction, pride, corruption
warfare and technology
sinned against the beasts and birds
feared are the sons Anak

When it became impossible to feed 'em
they began to devour men
the women bore three races of giants
the great, the Elioud and the Nephilim

Teaching them to devide roots and trees
Decenting from the mount Armon

Two hundred watchers came to this world
their leader Samyaza
sorceress was taught by Amazarah
corrupted all their ways
he disclosed the secrets
of blood and iniquity
men perrished and cried to the sky
doomed by the sons of Anak

Evil Offspring!

Seeing the beauty of daughters of men
feared are the sons of Anak
taking wifes and making mothers of them
sons of god, children of men
teaching us destruction, pride, corruption
warfare and technology
sinned against the beasts and birds
feared are the sons Anak

When it became impossible to feed 'em
they began to devour men
the women bore three races of giants
the great, the Elioud and the Nephilim

Feared are the sons of Anak!
9. Evoke the Morbid (2:25)
In my sleep I witness horror, a message of fear
evoke the morbid!
needed to be brought forward, let every soul know
evoke the morbid!
that blood will flow, light will wanish when evil will show
evoke the morbid!
I have leapt over the fence that keeps live from dead
evoke the morbid!

I will roam on the fields of demise
and show endles lethal didication
cause its possession in me never dies
freedom will forfeit, when i'm going to
evoke the morbid!

From the abyss 'Sheol' their world beneath
evoke the morbid!
penetration several dimensions of hellish defences
gaining access to the world of the living
to prevent the eternal wheels from turning
evoke the morbid!

Witness the sourcery when I evoke the dead
evoke the morbid!
when the center of spiritual decay will spread
evoke the morbid!
when the night will turn darker than before
evoke the morbid!
witness horror persist forevermore
evoke the morbid!
10. Martial Law (3:46)
Imposition of military power
civilian land has been seized
enforced on the public is relocation
by compulsion!
invasion of authority, paid by
their victims
maintaining the order
securing domination!

Treated like an imbecile
warfare against every man
death, murder and greed
the rulers have declared
the Martial Law!

centralising all resources
executive power and force
gathered in one body,
known by zero tolerance!
anger of defiance
total shut-down in darkness
no one can reason, the orders
are consistent!

Any act of resistance is futile
you can not question this game
of enslavement, that brings you
to the death row!
cooperate or you will suffer
a choice without options
actions beyond
comprehension!

Domesticated by fear
your Rights are left in despair
questioning isn't allowed
the rulers have declared
the Martial Law!

Law! Law! Law! Law! Martial Law!
