Incarnate Lyrics

(15)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Alone I Stand (4:30)
A day of great tribulation is upon us.
A time of deception conflict and unrest.
I will not cower in fear and submission.
I will hold my ground and resist.
It all starts in the mind.
From the beginning of days to the last and final end.
Uncertainty bleeds from within.
Open wounds stitched with precision.
Mind and body conditioned to obey.
They call us sons and daughters.
Only sheep led to the slaughter.
So many times, so many lies.
I am disconnected from a system I've rejected.
No allegiance.
Defiant I withstand.
This resistance.
I reject what you demand and alone I stand.
Rank, file and number.
We are gears in the machine.
Unseen to the eye the shackles are on the inside.
Illusion of security.
Rejection of this supremacy.
Confusion lead us to submission.
Disconnection from a system I've rejected.
No allegiance.
Defiant I withstand.
This resistance.
I reject what you demand and alone I stand.
There is great tribulation.
Upon us all.
Deception, conflict, and unrest.
Upon us all.
I will hold my ground.
I will resist.
2. Hate by Design (3:46)
Born into the world of hatred
We are born free from the restrains of this society.
Helpless to what is instilled
To all those who raise us, mold us and shape us.
There is a time to separate from this
A reason why. A state of mind. There's a disconnection. A judgement made
Fueled by hate. It's your mistake. It's a choice you made. It's tearing us apart! Hate by design is destroying our lives
Seek to find some understanding. Redefine your life!
Consequence affected in a life that is rejected. Anger misplaced,
a burden on our hearts that's keeping us apart. No love, no understanding.
What we design is hate inside. A misconception, a judgement made.
It's our mistake we create when we lose compassion. It's tearing us a part!
Redefine your understanding. Redefine your own life!
3. Cut Me Loose (3:01)
Lost in thought,
Recounting the cost when sanity became askew
When turning the pages of life.
Concentrated on killing the sorrow that tears us in two
A faded memory of what used to be
The burden and the noose
and just cut me loose
It can’t be mistaken, the spirit is vacant.
When hope for tomorrow is nowhere in view
Living so close to a weakness,
That continues to keep you held down
Hear the sound Of the voice that is screaming.
What’s lost is now found
Ghosts of the past no longer torment me
I release the anguish
A faded memory of what used to be
The burden and the noose
Begging you to cut me loose
4. Strength of the Mind (3:48)
Strength of the mind

Looking back on the life that I lived
What I leave behind
Mistakes and memories serve to remind
They serve me to remind
The reflection staring back from the mirror
No longer looks like me, like me

Strength of the mind to fight what's inside
It takes strength of the mind
Before I lose control

Who can raise you from the fall and save you?
Only you
Who can take the pain away and change you?
Only you

A thousand miles between this never ending feeling
Just looking for something more
Searching for a release
I've seen rock bottom and I've smashed my fists against it
Just keep telling yourself it will be alright

Who can raise you from the fall and save you?
Only you
Who can take the pain away and change you?
Only you

Gather all your pain and suffering
Turn them into strength and weaponry
To overcome the enemy that's in you, that's in you
Come face to face with a war that rages in you

Who can take the pain away?
Only you
Only you
Only you

Who can raise you from the fall and save you?
And save you?
Only you

Strength of the mind
Before I lose control
5. Just Let Go (3:03)
Holding on to something that I know I can’t control
And I could not have it any other way. Restless anxious is all I’ve known
Defenseless against this. This change in my soul
What was once reluctance soon becomes the will to grow.
And I would not have it any other way
So I let go. Lose control. Let go to the unknown
Nothing changes in refusing to grow. Wisdom engages those who will grasp for something more
Take this leap of faith. There’s no time to waste and I cannot have it any other way
So I let go. Lose control. Just let go. Let go
See behind the hue. Reject what I once knew. I’ll let go. Surrender
6. Embrace the Journey… Upraised (5:25)
A lifetime of searching. Questioning existence and purpose
From the setting sun. To the vast expanses
Death from birth in reverse. Examine the dimensions in suspension of disbelief
The search continues. The soul escapes. Our existence. My soul aches
Beyond the aether, pass into the vail. Dissolved into nothingness
No hands can grasp. There is no answer to the questions
In the span of the infinite. To the concept of all time
I’m up raised a feeling I can’t explain.
My soul aches still searching is my refrain
Prepare the body for when the soul escapes.
The last caress before the great awakening
Beyond all. All of our comprehension. Beyond all disbelief
Spread my ashes into the sea. Embrace the journey
Death where is thy sting
Silence the voice of the self-righteous, condescending and without grace
Give sight to those who are blind with hatred, to see beyond hypocrisy
My soul searches beyond the aether, beyond the dogmatic haze...
7. Quiet Distress (3:46)
How many times, how many lies
Does it take to demonstrate. To change the apathy that’s ingrained
The screams. The cries. Behind the lies
The victim and the villainy, taking all your dignity
Quiet distress covers scars and bruises
Quiet distress leaves us lost and desperate
Night after night, search for the light. Relive the fear and misery
Disguise the pain. The blood will wash away, but the wounds still sing of your agony
Quiet distress covers scars and bruises
Quiet distress we can’t afford indifference
Hearing screams and cries, over and over again
Wash the blood away, over and over again
The victim, over and over again. Becomes the victor in the end
Quiet distress won’t cover scars and bruises
Quiet distress leaves us lost and desperate
We can’t afford indifference
8. Until the Day (2:56)
The reverberations escape and embrace me to a lonely sleep
As thoughts hold on to me
With words left unspoken
I couldn't ease the pain so easily
Drown my sanity

[Chorus:]
The distance apart, the longing in our hearts
I will remain until the day I die
We keep this path alive, never break the ties
I will remain until the day I die

The open spaces
Another city passes as we sleep
And it calls to me

The rhythm tears me open
Another crowd, another chance to bleed
Through this release

[Chorus:]
The distance apart, the longing in our hearts
I will remain until the day I die
We keep this path alive, never break the ties
I will remain until the day I die

And I taste the pain
No looking back as it begins again
I wouldn't change a thing
I'll give it everything until the end
Until my final breath

I will hold fast
Never turning back
I will hold fast
Until the day I die

(Forever I will remain)

[Chorus:]
The distance apart, the longing in our hearts
I will remain until the day I die
We keep this path alive, never break the ties
I will remain until the day I…
Until the day die
9. It Falls on Me (3:45)
[Chorus:]
It all falls on me, brings me to my knees
This feeling that's inside
Where's the peace that you promised me?
You promised me

Desolation fills this hollow heart
Seeking all the answers, as we drift apart
Where is the light? Where's the sanctity?
In this choir of voices, that deceive

[Chorus:]
It all falls on me, brings me to my knees
This feeling that's inside
Where's the peace that you promised me?
You promised

In disarray I find a place to come undone
Where all of my anger and all of my pain bleeds into something I can't contain
Release me from this moment, left here with nothing to hold onto
Your voice is still speaking, my vision is clear
And through the distance I feel you near

I feel you near

You don’t see me, you can't hear my voice
Left me with nothing without a choice
Memories of what could have been
Remind me it will never be the same again

It falls
It falls on me [3x]

It falls
10. The Great Deceit (3:08)
Resound the outcry, raise the signal of distress
We are compromised
They have silenced our dissent
A dull complacency covers humanity
This systematic hate of deceit

How many more will die before we realize the truth has been disguised?

[Chorus:]
Violence increased no justice and no peace
In the great deceit
The discontent silenced or put to death
In the great deceit
It's mental slavery

Our segregation is further fed by ignorance
This disconnection through color of the flesh
Blood of generations, saturate our roots
But history conceals the truth

[Chorus:]
Violence increased no justice and no peace
In the great deceit
The discontent (the discontent) silenced or put to death
In the great deceit
This is a great deceit

How can we breathe?
The silence is killing me
How can we breathe?
Who is the enemy?
How can we breathe?
Suffocate humanity
How can we breathe?
No justice, no peace

[Chorus:]
(Violence) …no justice and no peace
In the great deceit
The discontent (the discontent) silenced or put to death
In the great deceit
It's mental slavery
11. We Carry on (3:23)
(Carry on, carry on)

Morning breaks from a night awake
It’s laid my heart to waste
Here in this anguish
Knowing what will end just begins again

[Chorus:]
Somehow through it all
We carry on (we carry on)
Raise you up when you fall
We carry on

Heal these wounds to break the skin again
What’s done is done
Nothing’s the same
Vacant expression
As the waves wash over your motionless face

[Chorus:]
Somehow through it all
We carry on (we carry on)
Raise you up when you fall
We carry on

Bury the past (bury the past)
Wounds remain, but the wounds remain
Through it all (through it all)
A desire to live again

[Chorus:]
Somehow through it all
We carry on (We carry on)
Raise you up when you fall

(Carry on) [3x]
Carry on
Carry on
12. Ascension (3:13)
This is a dawning
A calling to face down consequence
No honor in hiding behind a wall that keeps you sane

Shed the skin of past mistakes
No remorse and no escape
The burden of your consciousness

Don't turn back
Your time has come

[Chorus:]
Draw your breath
Define your ascension
Put your fears to death
Define your ascension

As the tension builds within you
Let conviction conquer
All those who stand before you

This is fair warning
No turning back
There is no indecision

Don't turn away
Your time has come

It all ends today
Your time has come

[Chorus:]
Draw your breath
Define your ascension
Put your fears to death
Define your ascension

(this is fair warning)
(your time will come)
13. Reignite (Bonus Track) (2:59)
In modern humanity
We lack a sense of urgency
Where lies our ambition (our ambition)
Speaking words that don't hold weight
Lack of pure integrity
Leaving nothing to be gained

Nothing but insincerity
Just masking insecurity

Where's the passion
The urgency? Where is vitality?

Hanging on by a thread
Fading spark of light within
Reignite the ignition (the ignition)

There is no greater defeat
Then not fighting for what you believe
For what you believe

What do you believe in?
What do you stand for?
It's time to back, back up your words
(live this life) with passion
Has the world drained all our hearts?
Has the love been torn apart?
(live this life) with new direction
With knowledge to maintain
To determine what must change

With positive mentality
An attitude that sustain
Reignite the ignition

Yeah!

(live this life)
It's in your hands
(it's our time)
Take nothing for granted
(take this life)
It's in your hands
(live this life)
Stand and fight

Reignition
Ignite the blaze
14. Triumph Through Tragedy (Bonus Track) (2:40)
Triumph through tragedy

Every decision
Every choice that we make
All it takes is just one victory
Or just one simple mistake

[Pre-chorus:]
To change the course
Count the loss
Determine the road that we must take
The road that we create

[Chorus:]
(strength will be)
Through the determined
(can't you see)
There is triumphs through tragedy?

Cause us be
There's no illusion
This life will drag you through so much despair
Draw your own conclusion
Through reason and purpose we persevere

[Pre-chorus:]
To change the course
Count the loss
Determine the road that we must take
The road that we create

[Chorus:]
(strength will bleed)
Through the determined
(can't you see)
We have a purpose
All we need is to believe
There is triumph through tragedy

Never give in
To despair and hopelessness
Never give in
When your will begins to break
Never give in

Yeah!

When you're on the edge (step back) to find your balance
When the walls are closing in (closing in) tear them down

[Chorus:]
(strength will bleed)
Through the determined
(can't you see)
We have a purpose
All we need is to believe
There is triumph through tragedy
15. Loyalty (Bonus Track) (3:51)
"Justice for my sister and her children"
"If you want justice you've come to the wrong place"
"I disagree. I want to bring those who have wronged me to
justice and all those who've wronged me are right here"

The Queen brings the vengeance race
Fight from the fledged
Passing through the blood red sun
You're the watchers in the southern skies

Fighting until our last breath
Feel this indenting death
Through honor and victory
We will be avenged
Avenged

Loyalty unto the grave
Unbowed, Unbent
We are unbroken

Fucked up to blood and to fight
Choking on these venomous voices
We overcome our enemy
Until all are vanquished

Flames course through the darkness
For life to be avenged
Through honor and victory
We make amends

Loyalty unto the grave
Unbowed, Unbent
We are unbroken
Loyalty until the grave
Unbowed, Unbent
We are unbroken

Sever these venomous voices
Voice from the pain
My death won't be in vain
Loyalty until the grave

Loyal until death
Loyal to the grave
Loyal until death
Loyal to the grave

Loyalty unto the grave
Unbowed, Unbent
We are unbroken
