As the Spires Fall Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Arrival (1:21)
Instrumental
2. Return of the Sky Gods (4:54)
Prophecies long told
That we are not alone
An ancient portal into the unknown

Starships from the skies
Prophets of demise
A war that spans the galaxy unfolds

Descending from the dark void
In their chariots ablaze
Do they come in peace, or force all to be slaves

Turn their faces to the sky
Never known from where they come
Far from this celestial realm

(chorus)
Burn across the heavens
Invasion from the sky
To face annihilation
Mankind's final battle cry

Hostile invaders, or liberators of the world
Biologically assimilate them all

Fear extermination
And supplant all human life
Behold the gods returning from the sky

Imperialist minds
Behind reptilian eyes
The interstellar humanoids revealed

Things aren't what they seem
Anunnaki dreams
Where secrets of creation are concealed

Across the universe to extinguish mankind's curse
Through the portal, time has been reversed

Raise their eyes up to the sky
Journey light years from beyond
Extraterrestrials
Drift through space eternal

(chorus)
2x

Burn across the heavens
Invasion from the sky
To face annihilation
Mankind's final battle cry

Hostile invaders, liberation of the world
Biologically assimilate them all

Fear extermination
And supplant all human life
Behold the gods returning from the sky

Extinction or rebirth
Descend the conquerers of earth
Will long sought answers ever be revealed

Those of royal blood set out
On a quest for precious gold
To save a dying planet from it's doom

Behold the gods returning from the sky
Behold the gods returning from the sky
3. As the Spires Fall (4:19)
War in the name of a religion
A holy war they will fight
Brainwashed march of the living dead
Repeating words the charlatans have said

Like lambs led into the slaughter
Shed blood to sanctify the soul
A martyr's fate with nothing in return
Nothing but eternity to burn

(chorus)
Angels hiding
Devil's in disguise
Promise of salvation
Selling only lies

Haunted by the demons
That come to you at night
Faith is no protection
As dark devours light

End the grand deception
To overpower them all
Born a new reality
As the spires fall

Lay to rest myths of the past
Set free from the prison of the mind
End fanatical insanity
Pointless quest of immortality

Walking with the reaper to death's door
Seeds of doubt that we can't deny
A faith that rots away from within
No escaping, reason always wins

(chorus) 2 times.
4. Bodybreaker (5:14)
Chant of monks, incense burns
Ceremony after death begun

Move deceased to afterlife
Feed back to the earth from where it comes

Prepare sky burial
Corpses taken to the mountain top

Summon birds of prey to eat
Dismembering the limbs with ritual knife

This empty vessel
A task he lives for
Vultures invited
To devour the corpse

(chorus)
Bodybreaker
Vultures descend
Pulverize bones and flesh
Commence the end
Bodybreaker
Take them up high
Unite the dead
Sacred realm of the sky

Cycle of immortality
Not a bit of flesh will go to waste

Carcass laid to be picked clean
Feast the birds of prey on human taste

Set the soul free at last
This is the cadaver's final fate

Strive to do the task precise
All consumed the circle now complete

Mutilate ritual
Scatter ingest
Decomposition
A soul to digest

(chorus)

Mutilation ritual
Returning the remains up to the sky

Wipes his hands of the blood
The work for him is finished for today

Tomorrow brings another death
And so the ritual begins again

Carry out the task with pride
Each man is chosen by his destiny

Nothing is left
Nothing remains
Mourn not the ones
Who are free of the pain

(chorus)
5. Destroying Reality (5:25)
Breaking the freedom just a spirit sedated
Inside the walls of this lie that's created
Somewhere between the hammer and nail
Just another number in the book of betrayal

(chorus)
Sorrow ends a life just started
Not to mourn the dearly departed
Cast in black to see the light no more
Open the door
Another year dies
Touch of winter's embrace
As the tears of sorrow
Wash a smile from a face
Freeing the mind
From life's insanity
Escape from it all
Destroying reality

There are no promises, there will be no reward
Faint whispers of sanity - will all go ignored
Kings, queens and jesters, all one in the same
Dismantling the pieces of the master's game

(chorus)

Blind eyes now open, and free from the chains
In misery's shadow where the fools still remain
Silencing the sinners, now fallen angels cry
Rise up from the ashes where lost souls come to die

(chorus)
6. Seven Scorpions (3:52)
She is the mistress of magic
Isis the speaker of spells
When ra descends on the horizon
Come secrets never meant to tell

Walking into the sun
With her seven scorpions

(chorus)
Wander through the land
Guided by these seven scorpions
Beware the deadly poison
Of the seven scorpions

To the town of the two sandals
Where the crocodile is god
She approached the house of glory
Wayworn and weary from afar

Seeking rest and shelter
But the woman rudely slammed the door

(chorus)
Tefen crept into the house
Struck the child with a sting of sevenfold
Bring on them death and fire
From this lone scorpion

Glory's heart swelled with sorrow
Grief, mourning and lament
But isis called the words of power
To raise the child up from the dead

Token of repentance
Laid her wealth at the feet with gratitude

(chorus)
Wander through the land
Guided by the seven scorpions
Beware the deadly poison
Of the seven scorpions
7. The Lifeless Grin (4:19)
Dreary haze of sunrise
Greets another day
Endless cycle starts again
Same thing everyday

There's no deviation
Monotonous routine
Fake your way through days of toil
Fuel the greed machine

Serve those who enslave you and comply with their demands
Silencing all thoughts you must obey

(chorus)
Choose a face to wear, learn to wear it well
Pretend it's paradise
When you know it's really hell.

The lifeless grin - the mask has made you blind
The lifeless grin - hiding the lie

(verse #2)

Comfort in oppression
Submissive and abused
Tangled realms of exploitation
Respite refused

They have you where they want you
The human spirit numb
Feast the pigs, then leave the masses
Fighting for the crumbs

Affliction of misfortune a mental use of force
Poisoned minds wander in a daze

Never question
You don't need to know

Waiting watching
Time is moving slow

Dying a slow death
With the lifeless drones

Use and abuse you
Stares of mindless clones

Finding comfort
In this slavery

People claw their way
Through this misery

(verse #3)

The pointless existence
Now you're buried alive
Drift through time with no ambition
Submit to the grind

A hell of your own making
Harvesting the soul
Embrace the suffering and hardship
Serve those who control

Exterminate the spirit demoralizing pride
Burn away what little hope remains

(chorus)
Choose a face to wear, learn to wear it well
Pretend it's paradise
When you know it's really hell.

The lifeless grin - the mask has made you blind
A lifeless grin - hiding the lie
8. The Great Distance (6:30)
As I walk alone
I search for my way
I can't seem to find
Those things I should say
What words can I say

We drift through the years
As the pendulum sways
A long lonely wait
As we count off the days
We're counting the days

I know I can't change
The things that I've done
We trade in our past
For a sunrise to come
A sunrise will come

(chorus)

We never speak of the tears that we hide
Long for the days I'm still by your side
Across the great distance we ride

As we're making our way across time and space
The memory seems like a far away place
Through distance I carry on
We will carry on

(verse 2)

We push through our lives
As we carry the weight
We've chosen our path
Through the burden of fate
Or is it too late

Alone with my thoughts
I'm longing for when
You'll stand before me
And I'll see you again
Will I see you again

Like sand on the shore
I'm watching the waves
Awaiting the tide
To wash me away
Wash me away

Nothing can change my mind I'm here until the end
I still hear your voice through it all

Something's inside each one of us we can't pretend
Together we can never fall

We measure time's illusion, fade into the sun
Across the distance far and wide

But through all we survive

(chorus)
9. Razor Wire Halo (4:30)
There's a fire inside I can feel it burning
Just a rebel without a care

I'm a sinister man with a destructive plan
Place your bets I'll take any dare

Knocked down, kicked around, throw the bastards to the ground
Shatter all those things that you believe

Abandoned cast out find out what it's all about
Revenge comes for those who have deceived

Hiding in the shadows of pain
Running down the path of fate

(chorus)
Razor wire halo
No apology no regret
Razor wire halo
I don't forgive I can't forget

They can't take me they won't break me
They will never get me alive

I have earned each and every one of my scars
They tell the story of how I've survived

Both barrels to the head raging anger seeing red
Punishment for those that do me wrong

Flamethrower, crash and burn, fuel the hatred every turn
Hell a place I know where I belong

Hiding in the shadows of pain
- pain pain pain
Running down the path of fate

(chorus)

Going for the kill taking life by the throat
Curse the vile damn them to their graves

I will defy live by my own rules
There's none of them that will stand in my way

On their knees, futile cries, hopeless prayers up to the sky
Wallow in self pity and regret

One way, never die, choke the truth out of a lie
Karma calls it's time to pay the debt

(chorus)
10. Hatecrown (5:10)
Rise to power with relentless force
Campaign of genocide void of remorse
Death king, destroyer of all, nothing will remain

Desperate times desperate measures
Commence this brutal endeavor
Unleash the onslaught on the masses,
Madman lost control gone insane

(chorus)

Not to break the circle way
Into hells inferno burn them to the ground
Seeds of hate eternal
Hail the one infernal
Blood stained prongs praise this hatecrown
Seeds of hate eternal
Hail the one infernal
Blood stained prongs praise this hatecrown

Descent to chaos culminates in disaster
Ruthless pursuit the fires raging faster
Cast into armageddon - reaping what's been sown.

Beating the weak into submission
Spread the lies fear and superstition
Blood on the hands you're the scapegoat left here all alone
The monarch takes his throne

Trampling the slain
Monarch of pain
Skulls and bones are all that will remain

Bells of doom will ring
Bow before the king
Hear the call to ride the demon's wings

Down further they fall
Enslave one and all
Never more to see beyond the wall

Blackening the sun
War has now begun
Annihilate ascend the chosen one

(chorus)
Not to break the circle way
Into hells inferno burn them to the ground
Seeds of hate eternal
Hail the one infernal
Blood stained prongs praise this hatecrown
Seeds of hate eternal
Hail the one infernal
Blood stained prongs praise this hatecrown
