Wanderer Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Loss of Fury (2:21)
I will not follow this misleading
No tears will drown the fire in my eyes
And I shall not labour under their illusions
Exploiting all your sorrow
Suffocate your dearest dreams

I saw you drowning
In this stream of deadness
You did not seize my hand
What a craven surrender

Obliteration
Of this most essential emotion
This is the loss of fury
This is your silent demise
2. Bring the War Home (4:20)
I threw my useless life into their wars and riots
For the ideal to serve the ones I love
Yes, all too soon
No recognition for my pointless sacrifice
And far too late I saw
I left my home defenceless
This world's a slaughterhouse
And men like me are not the butchers

I brought justice to no one
But there was no doubt, it always stands to reason
Protect the just, conquer the felons
Returned wounded and broken
But I never left these barren fields
And now

I understand
There is no war to end all wars, take it from me
Drowning your hones love in mindless violence
I bring the war home, still raging within me

All too soon these children lost their father
And far too late I saw, that not for them I fought
The gods of profit led me into their battles

I never brought security to those
I wanted to protect
Feeding the machine
And staining this world with blood instead
And only now

I understand
There is no war to end all wars, take it from me
Drowning your honest love in mindless violence
I bing the war home, still raging within me

Take it from me, you'll carry the war home
I brought justice to no one
Now they spit me in the face
I did not recognize the real offenders
And now

I understand
There is no war to end all wars, take it from me
Drowning your honest love in mindless violence
I bring the war home, still raging within me

We brought affliction to the masses
And splendour to a few
We are aggressors, not defenders
3. Passage of the Crane (3:57)
I was born into this terror, unsuspecting as I was
Just a lifeward child, not aware of all the misery
Np idea of the blame this world already had to shoulder
As an untold crime came down and sealed my fate
No premonition of the doom impending
Not knowing of my strife for life to come
Soon gone were the years of my levity
Eleven summers before darkness fell

Keep this paper crane, on of a thousand
There never was a guilt to burden myself
My hopeless cry, it went unheard
And unlike me, you knew there were no gods to save me

Still no idea of the blame
This world would have shoulder
As for one last time I bid the cranes farewell
Passing by like timid ghosts
Summoners of a placid world
Never reavhing me

Masters of a peaceful life
Moving on to stainless shores
Never teaching me

Now I lay my aching hands to rest
As I bid my crane farewell
And I wish for an echo of my forlorn life
To be your melody

See this paper crane, one of a thousand
There never was a guilt to burden myself
My hopeless cry, it went unheard
And unlike me you knew, there were no gods to save me
All hope in vain, you just murdered them
Banished the crane from the meadows of this life
4. They Shall Not Pass (5:32)
No light of dawn will shine upon their false red flags
There is no compromise, today retreat is not an option
Grim faced and awake we watch their crimeful gathering
As their hollow slogans echo through the East End streets
Right here, right now, we will put them in their place

See the Blackshirts are marching
But this time they will not brave the storm
Shoulder to shoulder we stand
This is a sombre season
But my heart is filled with confidence
Believe me today, they shall not pass this way

Not yet corrupted
Not yet forced into their lined
Adamant and resolute
Under streaming banners they defile
Lulled into a false sense of security
Nevermore the sound of marching boots
Will hall through Cable Street
Those who play with fire shall burn themselves today

The Blackshirts are marching
But this time they will not brave the storm
Shoulder to shoulder we stand
This is a sombre season
But my heart is filled with confidence
Believe me today, they shall not pass this way

From different sides of a society
But now together upon the barricade
Side by side we fight the fear and terror
Hand in hand we strike – united by the enemy

Strike down their colours
They shall not pass
They will pass
Never again
5. Downshifter (5:59)
Stricken, but I will never fall
There is nothing in this world I fear
Forsaken, but I will never call
The ones that want to see me down, forever crawling
To their feet, forever begging for their noble deeds
I shall never kiss this crown and there is nothing I regret

I always knew this day would come
Faint premonitions blend into knowledge
This is the time of new departures
So many fists, so many shining eyes
So many voices shouting out the will to power

I seek salvation in the distance
Leaving the turmoil of this world
And all my demons falling silent
I left the lost, so very long ago

As masses converging around their towers
An apodictic certainty arose in me
That I shall wear this sign forever
That I shall never kiss this vrown, nothing I regret

I know the apostates, I carry the truth in me
As new liars invade my riven fatherland

I seek salvation in the distance
Leaving the turmoil of this world
And all my demons falling silent
I left the lost, so very long ago

I see vassals face away from frantic leaders
Lies of omission ensnare the changeling
I see heroes decay, I hear pontiffs betray
Betray their canon sermonized over ages

I seek salvation in the distance
eaving the turmoil of this world
And all my demons falling silent
I left the lost, so very long ago
6. Prey to God (3:08)
There is a void within the soul of every man
A secret blind spot, so numb and callous, careless and cold
So far beyond all empathy

Worthless appendix of incarnation
Yet the gateway to poison questing minds
Casting upon you, the spell of segregation
Tear all love from you, in total desolation

Total incapacitation

Self-knowledge denied and all your dignity defiled
No matter the names they bear
No matter the saints they fear
Lying prophets, fallen hollows, untruthful revelators
Your fear of hell will drag you into a godless abyss

There is no way to cure the human race
Forever abandoned to discrace
Waiting for you to surrender at last
Suffocating in religious haze
Implanted image of a prudent god, so wise and gracious
So far above the plagues you fear

Self-knowledge denied and all your dignity defiled
No matter the names they bear
No matter the saints they fear
Lying prophets, fallen hollows, untruthful revelators
Your fear of hell will drag you into a godless abyy

Fear of hell, prey to god, self-chosen hell, prey to god

Self-knowledge denied and all your dignity defiled
Momentary gods abhorred
But ancient demons adored
7. Agent Orange (Sodom cover) (6:08)
Operation Ranch Hand
Spray down the death
Down on their farms
Assault against the population
Suppress by military arms
Only you prevent the forest
Legalise the war
They are deprived of their power
Eradication without law

Agent Orange
Agent Orange
Agent Orange
A fire that doesn't burn

All the marks erased long ago
Scars are healed up
Cancer creeps into their innocent souls
Memorials of flesh and blood
Have survived unlawfully punished
Poisoned till the end of their lives
Physical deformity
What medicine will help?
Still births will rise

Agent Orange
Agent Orange
Agent Orange
A fire that doesn't burn

Grieved weak hearts are crying
Waiting for the end
In this condition they are dying
Newborns of the damned
Preserved in test tubes for generations
Vicious circle of transmission
There's no way for reparations
Must live with chemical agent called

Agent Orange
Agent Orange
Agent Orange
A fire that doesn't burn

Agent Orange... burn
Agent Orange... burn
Agent Orange... burn
8. My Heart Is My Compass (1:10)
Instrumental
9. Save Me (4:57)
This is the reckoning
End staring into voided skies
Bury your fallen angels
No one to save me
All lines to follow perished
No one to lead me

Save me

I see them marching again, hailing the darkest kings
And even if I leave it all
This downfall resonates across the aeons

Deceptive calm surrounding the unaware
Resting in the eye of the storm
Cross my heart and hope to die
I will not wait for them to save me from the falling night
You feel these days are closing in
Yet unmistrusting, still not reflecting

Am I the only one to see
And do I really roam alone
Along the shores of our empty seas
Screaming my lungs out, against the forceful winds
Now this will break your heart, full of deceitful hopes
Devoid of passion, opposition unlearnt
Unconcern and ignorance
Idle minds fight no repression

Cross my heart and hope to die
I will not wait for them to save me from the falling night
Stench of indifference, carried by the rising winds
Blowing on the fires eating up the world

Am I the only one to see
And do I really roam alone
Along the shores of our empty seas
Screaming my lungs out, against the forceful winds
Now this will break your heart, full of deceitful hopes
Devoid of passion, opposition unlearnt

I hear them chant again, hailing the darkest kings
These walls are closing in, idle minds fight no repression

I was the only one to see
Now I wander all alone
Along the stormy shores of my beloved seas
Sail into silence, using the forceful winds
Mourning the broken hearts, full of deceitful hopes
All their broken hearts, full of deceitful hopes
10. Corium (5:27)
Supervision end to end and unprovided
For events beyond control
Once committed to progress
Now impelling the downturn, unable to confess
Megalomania, fueled by long gone visionaries
Reign of misguided futurists

No reason to see, in cataclysmic silence they still teach
In the name of progression, admitting of no option
Technology evangelists misled
An evocation of relentless distress

Now fallen from the heights of your victory
Still undiscerning, on and on into misery

Swallow their timeworn doctrines
Absorbing the lies like released iodine
Without protest
There is no yearning for deliverance from malediction

No reason to see, into cataclysmic silence they still preach
In the name of progression
Evocation of a certain nemesis
Standstill in the name of progression, we lost control

Fallen from heights of your victory
Still undiscerning
On and on into misery

In the name of progression, in silence they still teach
They bought this fatal regression
On and on into misery
11. Extermination Order (3:20)
Trotha!
His name was Trotha, never forgive, never forget!
This irate oath we carry in our darkened hearts forever
A march into damnation
Peregrination towards the open gates of hell
Our fathers' blood ran down the Waterberg
Our mothers' cries
They died away in endless deserts
Under a radiant sun and azure skies
We died a wretched death under their bright eyes

These few survivors scarred for life
Doomed generations to follow
Tell me will you ever pay the price
Breaking the silence at last

No more hiding the truth

Fallen from your doubtful grace
An invocation of the beginning of your end
Our fathers' blodd ran down the Waterberg
Our mothers' vries, they died away
Imploring remorseless oppressors

These few survivors scarred for life
Doomed generations to follow
Tell me will you ever pay the price

Breaking the silence at last
The shadows of this genocide
Eclipse my haunted soul forever
Your empty words of regret, deriding the dead
12. A River of Crimson (4:47)
I close my eyes and hear it rushing
From the cradle to the grave
This pulsating ever flowing stream
Running through my veins

An ocean within me
Tides of the deepest red I know
Drowning the filth of the otherside world
Ever vibrant, never resting, protecting me
Healing me, a treasure beyond gold

Every heartbeat a movement order
For an army marching through
Every single heartbeat, an amry marching through

Never resting

Mystified and sacrosnact
A mesmerizing force from times immemorial
A fragile balance, in need of perfect harmony
All too often tainted and defiled

An ocean within in me
Tides of the deepest red I know
Drownung the filth of the outside world
Ever vibrant, never resting, protecting me
Healing me

Never resting

Every silent breath I take
Fuels this vivid stream of ever shining red
Raging currents, silent waters, an uncirrupted mirror
Reflecting my state of mind

My river of crimson
Never be my enemy
Never run into my ocean of sorrow
Be my companion, I shall never leave

An ocean wthin in me
Tides of the deepest red I know
Embracing the grace of the outside world
Ever vibrant, never resting, curing me
Never resting, ever vibrant, my silent remedy
13. The Cry of Mankind (My Dying Bride cover) (7:34)
You can't expect to see him and survive
You'll swallow his tongue of thorns
His mouth, dripping with flies
In his glorious kingdom of fire
But I believe he wept
I will make them all lie down
Down where hope lies dying
With lust, you're kicking mankind to death
We live and die without hope
You tramp us down in a river of death
As I stand here now, my heart is black
I don't want to die a lonely man
This is a weary hour
This is a weary hour
