The Death of the Artists Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level 록스타
1. Simple Man
Cold like a winter breeze... hanging like a spider...
From the hank of your messed, hidden thoughts
Wanna blame me? Want to kill me?
It's your inner need... your loss of common sense

Did you ever... stop for a moment?
Did you dare... to watch, to watch in the dark?

I'm just a simple man, you know I won't stand
This is the reason why we're simply ephemeral
I'm just what I am, don't rush, it won't make sense
A mortal angel with an abstinence from sins

A crowded mirror… a road without an end
Thousand begging hands for something they deserve

Did you ever... stop for a moment?
Did you dare... to watch, to watch in the dark?

I'm just a simple man, you know I won't stand
This is the reason why we're simply ephemeral
I'm just what I am, don't rush, it won't make sense
A mortal angel with an abstinence from sins

I’m going back with my mind, my soul is yearning for the ancient times
In which the advantage of the Artist within the society
Was commonly accepted and acknowledged with pleasure, joy and naturalness.
The Artist, beautiful and rich of fine feelings was not a sterile stereotype
But a simple, natural matter of fact.

Did you ever... stop for a moment?
Did you dare... to watch, to watch in the dark?

I'm just a simple man, you know I won't stand
This is the reason why we're simply ephemeral
I'm just what I am, don't rush, it won't make sense
A mortal angel with an abstinence from sins
2. Every Thrash Of Me
Stranded, outcast, misplaced and so fucked up
We are the new toys for the neighbours to play with
Forgotten, abandoned to ourselves
We are the Lethe to wash your conscience in

Within your mind the answer lies untold
You’re looking for the truth where no truth’s ever to be found

Modern prophets, self-righteous gurus
No one knows what goes on when the doors are shut
Hysteric beauties, smooth seducers
Having their womb filled won’t make mothers out of them

Within your mind the answer lies untold
You’re looking for the truth where no truth’s ever to be found

WE ARE! gross and rude
WE ARE! mean and proud (we are)
We are anything... anything you want us to be
WE ARE! back and proud
WE ARE! strong and loud (we are)
We are the main dish... please taste every thrash of me!

They make us starve and thirst on food, oil or water
As long as we’re in need it’s just the same to them
There is no left or right anymore
Just an organized mockery of humanity

Within your mind the answer lies untold
You’re looking for the truth where no truth’s ever to be found

WE ARE! gross and rude
WE ARE! mean and proud (we are)
We are anything... anything you want us to be
WE ARE! back and proud
WE ARE! strong and loud (we are)
We are the main dish... please taste every thrash of me!
Every fuckin’ thrash of me, sucker!

Within your mind the answer lies untold
You’re looking for the truth where no truth’s ever to be found

WE ARE! gross and rude
WE ARE! mean and proud (we are)
We are anything... anything you want us to be
WE ARE! back and proud
WE ARE! strong and loud (we are)
We are the main dish... please taste every thrash of,
Taste every thrash of, taste every thrash of me!
3. Canticle Of The Flesh
Come now, my son and listen to my wise words
They are just meant to soothe your weary soul
Come now, my son and listen to my wise words
Let me free your mind…

Everyday in our life
We are scared by how our flesh can be so frail
So much that we need to believe
In a stronger spirit that will survive it

Our God offers you
Eternal life in a paradise
Tell me, how can you beat this offer?
Our God cleansed all our sins
By the sacrifice of himself
Tell me true, have you ever thought
About anything so cool?

Flesh, flesh, so tender and warm
It withholds the spirit, but the spirit’s so strong
Flesh, it will get spots and decay
Where your soul will fly, no one can say

No need for instincts, no need for thoughts
Ain’t it easier when your path is clear ahead?
And if you are a good dog
You can get an extra bone from time to time

Our God offers you
Eternal life in a paradise
Tell me, how can you beat this offer?
Our God cleansed all our sins
By the sacrifice of himself
Tell me true, have you ever thought
About anything so cool?

Flesh, flesh, so tender and warm
It withholds the spirit, but the spirit’s so strong
Flesh, it will get spots and decay
Where your soul will fly, no one can say

How can you beat this offer?

Flesh, flesh, so tender and warm
It withholds the spirit, but the spirit’s so strong
Flesh, it will get spots and decay
Where your soul will fly, no one can say
4. It Takes Some Passion
I was tryin' to forget you all
'Cause the pain was too much for me to bear
God knows how I feel, how many times I tried to be

Forgive me father 'cause I think I'm gonna fail
And all my steps will bring me back, on my knees

I was ready to disappear
Leavin' my dreams and indulging on my fears
You know it takes some time and some passion to feel alive

Forgive me father, I'm afraid I'm gonna sin
And all my steps will bring me back!

A day will come for me
To rate all the life I've spent
Chasing what you call a dream... yeah...
Simply I don't care
If it's too late or maybe it's not

A day will come for me
To rate all the life I've spent
Chasing what you call a dream... yeah...
Simply I don't care
If it's too late or maybe it's not
5. The Death Of The Artists
Disintegration
Do you want to be left alone?
Disaggregation
Things that can’t stay as a whole

Thoughts are floating like useless burden
On a sea of carelessness

Talent frustration
Can you ever recognize a gift?
Lack of communication
And all the bullshit you believe

Thoughts are floating like useless burden
On a sea of carelessness

The hellish desire of a great Creature
Filled us with sighs
Will Death make flowers blossom
Out of our brains?
6. Dance In A Flame
I’ve been trying, so hard
To follow all their rules
To be what the world wanted me to be
Painful the struggle, it was tearing me apart from within
All I got was a trembling shade
Of the man I thought I should be

Are we starting something that’s really new?
Or love will make me a victim of my past once again?

You and me forever, free like the wind we breath
A dance in a flame our lives won’t last tonight
You and me forever, a leap into unknown seas
A gentle score to whom my heart will beat

A messed-up puzzle in a dark room
As the last memory of that day
Of that day fades out
I walked the streets of the world
With my pocket-size truth and my bag of lies
Too frightened to look that deep inside myself

Are we starting something that’s really new?
Or love will make me a victim of my past once again?

You and me forever, free like the wind we breath
A dance in a flame our lives won’t last tonight
You and me forever, a leap into unknown seas
A gentle score to whom my heart will beat

You and me... forever free... dance like a flame...
7. The Scream
As long as my heart beats, I will keep on screaming
Stopped living in the shade of what I could have been
And it makes me feel free
Though it scares the hell out of me

This is how vile metals turn to gold
This is it, melt your body and your soul

Follow your emotions, scream until it hurts
Then scream beyond mankind and beyond this world’s girth
As long as you crave for more
The scream will keep resounding

The things I can’t control don’t scare me anymore
By the tide I will be brought
In some unknown regions of my thought

This is how vile metals turn to gold
This is it, melt your body and your soul

Follow your emotions, scream until it hurts
Then scream beyond mankind
And beyond this world’s girth
As long as you crave for more
The scream will keep resounding

Follow your instinct, run under the rain
Kneel down and face the reason for your pain
Follow your emotions, scream until it hurts
Then scream beyond mankind and beyond this world’s girth
As long as you crave for more
The scream will keep resounding
8. Slave To Darkness
King of a kin, enslaved by darkness
The hounds of Gaia, now scenting my blood

My soul will wonder eternally...
'Cause my heart's sake is to die for your beauty...

The unholy grave will grant our fire
Come now! my bride... they won't stop our hearts!

My soul will wonder eternally...
'Cause my heart's sake is to die for your beauty...

To attend a thousand times mankind tragedy
Within my hand-grasp, the centuries will die
For once in my life, I'll deviate Immortality
Embrace the warmth of a small fleeting lust

I dream the day, I cry in loneliness
The touch of Evil corrupting your lips

My soul will wonder eternally...
'Cause my heart's sake is to die for your beauty...

Oooh! Am I cursed by a demon? A servant of love... Drink from me...

My soul will wonder eternally...
'Cause my heart's sake is to die for your beauty...

To attend a thousand times mankind tragedy
Within my hand-grasp, the centuries will die
For once in my life, I'll deviate Immortality
Embrace the warmth of a small fleeting lust...
9. A Queen In My Pocket
She's an angel
She's an alien
She can take you to the Sky, watch the stars and smile!

She's a Queen in love
But She's the Queen I love
She won't feel alone tonight, 17 thousand miles from my heart!

my heart... my heart...

Crazy rockets cross the sky
Looking for an empty heart to land on
Falling stars for those with open eyes
They will favour my desires

She's a fable
She's a song I'll never learn
She's a start before the end, she's a kiss under the rain

She's a wonder
But I wonder where She could be
She won't sleep with me tonight, She won't say a last goodbye

goodbye... goodbye...

Ooooooh... She's an angel... she's an angel...

Crazy rockets cross the sky
Looking for an empty heart to land on
Falling stars for those with open eyes
They will favour my desires
