Mastery Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Dead Raising Towers (3:36)
Dead raising towers

You're trying to bind me, you're trying to change the rules
But we are lost inside this odyssey
The more that you're preaching you're building up their confidence
Should we be the chosen to conquer the beast, that's what they believe

Dead raising towers to the cold black-hearted light
Dead raising towers to the skies
Dead raising towers to the cold black-hearted light
Dead raising towers to the skies

You're building up towers to reach for the otherside
But you know that we do not have the right
Look at yourself, tell me the truth if you dare to say that
The rainmaker's coming to reap our hearts, and tear us apart

Evil's rising, mesmerizing, enchanted eyes

Dead raising towers to the cold black-hearted light
Dead raising towers to the skies
Dead raising towers to the cold black-hearted light
Dead raising towers to the skies

Dead raising towers to the cold black-hearted light
Dead raising towers to the skies
Dead raising towers to the cold black-hearted light
Dead raising towers to the skies
2. Future Millennia (3:33)
Lost in the eye of the storm
By rulers supreme we were told
We're facing the darkness, a clash of the gods
A glorious sign from the sky

There at the age of space and time
Nothing but promises for the future of mankind

Let us save a prayer for them
Let us walk together through hell
To future millennia

Drowned in the sea of despair
Our lungs filled with hazardous waste
The end of our race is the birth of the
New era that comes when we all are dead and gone

There at the age of space and time
Nothing but promises for the future of mankind
Souls will be free

Let us save a prayer for them
Let us walk together through hell
To future millennia

There at the age of space and time
Nothing but promises for the future of mankind
Save me now!

Let us save a prayer for them
Let us walk together through hell
To future millennia
3. Mastery (4:47)
One final trip into the light
One step from the serpent's paradise
Leave time behind to reach much higher
We're just a part of his masterplan
Poor players without intentions
Trying to fly with broken feathers

Leave time behind don't waste your life
Follow the signs

Mastery, watchers in the twilight of the sun
Jacob awaits on the hill
Mastery, take us to the mystic morning light
The alchemist turns water into wine
Mastery!

We cannot run from the man in black
He pulls the string, we are marionettes
Dancing on the wire
Towards the isle of the damned
The wheel keeps on spinning 'til the end
Like dreamers, signifying nothing

Leave time behind don't waste your life
Follow the signs

Mastery, watchers in the twilight of the sun
Jacob awaits on the hill
Mastery, take us to the mystic morning light
The alchemist turns water into wine
Mastery!

They're calling from the other side
There's no one here to read the signs

Leave time behind don't waste your life
Follow the signs

Mastery, watchers in the twilight of the sun
Jacob awaits on the hill
Mastery, take us to the mystic morning light
The alchemist turns water into wine
Mastery!
4. Victims of the Nile (7:35)
Behind the black mirror of our dreams
The fear once controlled our fake beliefs
We'll hide away the reflections of our lives
The fear that controlled our inner pride

We'll still be victims of the Nile
Let our hearts cry out for all the strife
As the son arrives our solitary lives
Still are victims of the Nile

We followed the preachers to the sea
They howled as the fell down to their knees
We are the victims of the Nile
And the pain we cast away still echoes in our hearts

We'll still be victims of the Nile
Let our hearts cry out for all the strife
As the son arrives our solitary lives
Still are victims of the Nile

Father of lies coming to preach for the masses
Bringer of light, wielding the time we have lost in our lives
Victims of the Nile
He's carrying the torch, leading to primal extinction
Crossing the skies like the infernal creatures of old,
Master of the night

We are the victims of the Nile
Let our hearts cry out for all the strife
We are the victims of the Nile
Let our hearts cry out for all the strife
5. Iscariot (5:19)
Take me back to where it all began, back to the start
Followed by the rumors and the voices in the dark
Created by the former gods, cast away for good
An image of our enemies won't save us if it could

The higher we fly, the smaller we appear
To those who cannot fly at all

Iscariot, saint or sinner
Iscariot, unbeliever
Iscariot, one deceiver
Iscariot, saint or sinner

Cast out for eternity, down to the depths of hell
Blacklisted from the sanctuary, banished for all time
No one will forgive you, and no one forget your name
Abomination of the human race, left alone to bare the blame

The higher we fly, the smaller we appear
To those who cannot fly at all

Iscariot, saint or sinner
Iscariot, unbeliever
Iscariot, one deceiver
Iscariot, saint or sinner

Now they are talking 'bout confusion
About the world we barely know
Ohh, that there is just one solution
And you are left to bare the blame, yeah

Iscariot, saint or sinner
Iscariot, unbeliever
Iscariot, one deceiver
Iscariot, saint or sinner
6. Follow Azrael (6:28)
In quest for the truth
And guidance
To conquer the trials of hell
Now bless us with strength
And your courage
To enter the underworld

No nobles, no merchants
Have ever returned
In the depths of this nightmare
Their souls have yearned
But your light of deliverance
Will shine like the sun
And twist the myth of creation

Ohh no, but where do we go?

Welcome to follow Azrael
Straight out of heaven
To hellfire below
Welcome to follow Azrael
To twist the myth of creation
Welcome
We follow Azrael

But where do we go?

We're going down
To the land of the living
Where god has no name
That's where I saw them
All wandering in vain
One million faces
Children of Cain
Spellbound they walked
Right into the fire

Welcome to follow Azrael
Straight out of heaven
To hellfire below
Welcome to follow Azrael
To twist the myth of creation
Welcome
We follow Azrael

The beauty of a sunrise
From the shadows of the deep
A glimpse of our own fantasies
In an ocean full of dreams
We wept and we cried here
For the savior to return
And carry our burden through
The gateways of Xibalba's heart

Welcome to follow Azrael
Straight out of heaven
To hellfire below
Welcome to follow Azrael
To twist the myth of creation

Welcome to follow Azrael
Straight out of heaven
To hellfire below
Welcome to follow Azrael
To twist the myth of creation
Welcome
We follow Azrael
But where do we go, Azrael?
7. Freedom Eaters (4:42)
21st century
Corrupted supremacy
Our nation's been pulverized
It's too late for mankind to rise

They're feeding your heads
With stupid lies
You'll end up in hell
Or paradise

They are freedom eaters
And they come to take control
And you won't believe us
That the end has just begun
Freedom eaters

Warzone 3k AD
Religious Stupidity
The ending won't be too late
We ride on wings of fate

You say you're in charge
Of your own life
But your mind is set
By someone else's lie

They are freedom eaters
And they come to take control
And you won't believe us
That the end has just begun

Freedom eaters
And they come to save us all
Freedom eaters
It's the calm before the storm
Freedom eaters

The worlds are watching
We'll show no sympathy
Extermination
For you own liberty

False inquisition
It can not be undone
Dark revelation
Illuminates the sun
The sun, the sun, the sun, the sun
The sun won't shine again

They are freedom eaters
And they come to take control
And you won't believe us
That the end has just begun

Freedom eaters
And they come to take control
And you won't believe us
That the end has just begun

Freedom eaters
And they come to save us all
Freedom eaters
It's the calm before the storm
Freedom eaters
8. World Unknown (3:53)
We've felt this before
The beginning of the end
This world's so cold
We're left here alone
In a world unknown

We're going down, down, down
To the world unknown
Azrael, and the trials of the seven hells

We're entering the void
Where others have gone before
Where the children of tomorrow
Got lost in the storm
To the world unknown

We're going down, down, down
To the world unknown
Azrael, and the trials of the seven hells
9. Widowmaker (4:29)
You'd come to take another life
Before the heaven's clashing down
Another prey, another hunt
Just another round

Feel her crawling in the night
To drag you down and take a bite
Sending shivers down your spine

Caught in this living hell
Where souls are stripped away
Lost in this Neverland
To find some sanity
Caught in this living hell

Widowmaker, curse of the light
Rightful heir, arise!
Widowmaker, step into fire

A far off light across the waste
Draws us closer to the edge
We must abstain from her grace
Chasing figures in the haze

One stare will suffocate your soul
And turn your heart to blackened stone
For all eternity

Caught in this living hell
Where souls are stripped away
Lost in this Neverland
To find some sanity
Caught in this living hell

Widowmaker, curse of the light
Rightful heir, arise!
Widowmaker, step into fire

Caught in this living hell
Where souls are stripped away
Lost in this Neverland
To find some sanity
Caught in this living hell

Widowmaker, curse of the light
Rightful heir, arise!
Widowmaker, step into fire
Widowmaker, curse of the light
Rightful heir, arise!
Widowmaker, step into fire
She's the widowmaker
10. Envy of the Gods (7:32)
In nether worlds we wander to find utopia
Is this the final answer, where is the world we've known
Another fallen nation, another dying sun
Where all the strange believers found their Elysium
And as the world is turning, towards utopia
The universal silence calls

Warlords and steel gods, we're on the march
Precious Alexandria, seems lost forever more
Crossing the deadly Gedrosian
Wasteland, like hell on earth we'll try to linger on

Grave mother of majestic works
From her isle-altar gazing down
Who, god-like, grasps the triple fork
And, king-like, wears the crown

Envy of the gods, utopia faded, gone
Envy of the gods, utopia faded, gone

A lust for higher power and the greed of men
Drag us to this living' hell, mislead by your command
Why are we here if we're still alive
God-chosen warrior a king without a crown

Three wishes are my last demand
Let my powerless doctors carry me away
To my grave and down the golden lane
Let the world see my empty hands

Envy of the gods, utopia faded, gone
Envy of the gods, utopia faded, gone

And as the wind will carry the ashes to the sea
Left are the witnesses, the lost humanity
They put their trust into their faith and the unknown
Like blinded wanderers lost without no hope

Grave mother of majestic works
From her isle-altar gazing down
Who, god-like, grasps the triple fork
And, king-like, wears the crown

Envy of the gods, utopia faded, gone
Envy of the gods, utopia faded, gone
11. The Wolf and the Kraken (3:54)
A child was born on a starless night
A lone wolf passed him by
Speaking chants from wicked tongue
'Bout buried creatures of this earth

And he had come to break the new horizons
Another fool in the raging fire
Now he's waiting, breaking away to final decay

The wolf and the kraken
As they rise
We're all going down in flames
The wolf and the kraken
With fiery eyes our world turns hollow
Burning down the new tomorrow

The hunter's moon all dressed in white
Casting shadows on the cross
And the ocean dwells eternally
As in heaven so below

And she will hound to cause perpetual madness
And she will reign in the sea of sadness
Now she's waiting, breaking away to final decay


The wolf and the kraken
As they rise
We're all going down in flames
The wolf and the kraken
With fiery eyes our world turns hollow
Burning down the new tomorrow

The wolf and the kraken
We're all going down in flames
With fiery eyes our world turns hollow
Burning down!

The wolf and the kraken
As they rise
We're all going down in flames
The wolf and the kraken
With fiery eyes our world turns hollow
We're burning down

The wolf and the kraken
As they rise
We're all going down in flames
The wolf and the kraken
With fiery eyes our world turns hollow
Burning down the new tomorrow
