IX Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rizalgrinder
1. Brand New Sleep (5:54)
In the beginning maybe you were born to follow, singing everybody else's song
Now you want one for your own
Oh the sky comes apart, so you depart
For a new start in the winter's heart

Respond in kind with the other free thinking sheep
Join their refrain and awaken a brand new sleep
Oh the sky comes apart, so you depart
For a new start in the winter's heart
Awaken
Now you have your dream redeemer
Deliver you if you keep believing
2. Elphyn (4:58)
Darkness shine a light into the black night night of the soul
Into the storm, you have to ride out, you have to ride it out
Beware of deposed gods plotting a return
They long to plunder by thunder in the end don't get burned
Bought the best pedestal, all that money could buy
Put yourself up there and say shine a light, but its' known
In the end lie broken in stone

Symbol of the shadow, symbol of the fall, the name is taken
Denied, violated, profane
See who's eye I spy, been a long time flying by, and I see you looking at me
Look with some disdain, and a touch of pity, because I never found a seat
At the feast of your elite
Looking, I got you looking
3. Denmark Vesey (2:07)
Charleston 1822
Fought a man
For freedom nail & tooth
Say goodbye to slavery
Kill kill Denmark Vesey
Kill Denmark Vesey
Kill kill kill denmark vesey

Before Nat Turner
Before John Brown
Gullah Jack - gonna hunt you down
We gonna take the armory
Kill kill Denmark Vesey
Kill Denmark Vesey
Kill kill kill Denmark Vesey

In the land of the blind - writhing
In the land of the blind - writhing
The one eyed man is King

Catch telemaque
Gonna hang him high
Abolitionist battle cry
His name given to posterity
Long live Denmark Vesey
Kill Denmark Vesey
Kill kill kill Denmark Vesey
4. The Nectar (4:15)
Guardian angel, devil in wait
Sampled your wares, was a mistake
Darkness within revealed
Spun out on the light that you crave

Recognize what is in sight and what's hidden will come into view
I hear you rail against the competition
What you're selling is the only true elixir
Recognize what is in sight and what's hidden will come into view

Drink of the nectar, you true believer, let reason sleep, drink deep
Worm-holed soul, how to fill the need
Drink of the nectar, drink deep
Recognize what is in sight and what's hidden will come into view
Oh, in the mind, how they plant the seed, and feed the forces, dark forces they've freed
5. Interlude (0:56)
Instrumental
6. On Your Way (3:40)
On your way back to earth, assigned another birth
On your way back to dawn, the last will now be first
Searching for for what's already your's, already your possession
They have no answers, one is the soul, nothing to offer they have cast all their stones
They have cast all their stones

In primate fear assign the blame that their scarecrows may lead them
In suspicion might have lost their way, trust in those that came to prey
Searching for for what's already your's, already your possession
They have no answers, one is the soul, nothing to offer they have cast all their stones
They have cast all their stones

I you knew at the dawn what was know by night, the same bad cards other side
Twist up another metaphor, unite in fear painted up as bravery
No recollection of connection, come before, return again
Many beginnings from many ends, ripples of disruption
Searching for for what's already your's, already your possession
They have no answers, one is the soul, nothing to offer...
7. Trucker (5:30)
Another legend built to stand behind the glass cannot withstand
Flight of resurrection, illuminating the deception
The faces pressed against the glass, shut out of forever
You cannot rewind or reset the eyes

The tunnel at the end of light stole your sight, mutation failed
Failed to climb, suspicion in your ear, reaction's fear
The faces pressed against the glass, shut out of forever
You cannot rewind or reset the eyes

Try to possess what you can't have, obsess upon the reasons why
Defect is definition, if all is one than you are in it
The faces pressed against the glass, shut out of forever
You cannot rewind or reset the eyes

Oh you lead your horses, lead ‘em to the water
Well the water's muddy, muddy with broken promise
Repeat the mantra, until you swear it's true
Lower the vibration, evolution doomed
8. The Hanged Man (4:18)
Oh I put in my time, oh not believing your lines
Oh believe it all works out, hope it all works out in time
I've seen the numbers of the day, It looks like time has up and flown away
I've seen the golden ones stumble and fall, looks like the shine is off them all

You know the night's so strong, dragged in the dawn
Some fools are drawn, fascination, some fools are drawn to the dark ones
I've seen the numbers of the day, It looks like time has up and flown away
I've seen the golden ones stumble and fall, looks like the shine is off them all

You know the night's so strong, dragged in the dawn
Some fools are drawn, vibration, some fools are drawn to the dark ones
So crawl eclipsed, all things run their course, shadow of self gaze up at the water mark
9. Tarquinius Superbus (5:33)
In sight - the throne is my right
The Seventh King
Say goodnight - to the past I indite
Now come kiss the ring
Because I know you must - Hide disgust

Tarquinius Superbus
Omnibus Tarquinius Superbus

I fight - this coup my vendetta
The Etruscan Way
Despite no one knew Frank Frazetta
Would glorify the day
Because Tullius - Was too just

Tarquinius Superbus
Thunderous Tarquinius Superbus

It's a position of time
Cyprian Esquiline (vicus sceleratus)
It's the warrior way to betray
Cause the warrior way is to betray
Ignite - the fire usurp the king
Tonight - the rule imperial
Will turn to dust

Thunderous Tarquinius Superbus
Somethin' wicked
Wicked this way comes
Romulus and Remus
Capitoline Wolf
The Sun belongs to no one
And this son belongs to no one
10. Who You Need to Blame (3:47)
Long back in another time, when you walked a razor's line
Tuned to frequencies crystalline, and the ride was serpentine
And so you read between the lies, and find what you need to find

Oh, the result is preordained, so blame just who you need to blame
Wear and tear and grind the gears, They don't care and can't quite feel
Apprehension rules the day, when suspicion leads the way

Blame who you need to blame
So, they bide their time and feed the fire, feed the fire
Blame who you need to blame
11. The Nectar Reprised (1:20)
[Verse 1] (x4)
Drink of the nectar
The true believer
Let reason sleep, drinking
