The Congregation Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Price (5:14)
Piercing his eyes
Scars you can't see
Cutting profound
Places you don't want to be
Climbing a mountain
Crossing a sea

Behind
The struggle has ended
Damaged mind
Already descended

Acting out
Striving to make me secure

The gutter parts us
From the rain
Up on the hill
Tough and alone
Perfectly filling
His desolate throne

Acting out
Securing me

Friendly betrayal
Somber delight
Treating his tumor
Without a fight
2. Third Law (6:18)
On the rise
Going up
First to be
Alone on the top

No delusion
In your mind
Peripheral vision
Left behind

Somewhere
Someone
Must bow

Despair
Hidden
Somehow

Solid effort
Underground
Undervalue
To be found

Felt inside
Something alive
Devious instinct
To survive

Truly hard
To comprehend
Still effortless
To defend

Real compassion
Obsolete
Camouflaging
Indiscreet
3. Rewind (7:07)
Build up
Tear down
Set free
Rewind

The circle is ending
I'm done
Pretending
Left behind

Resist
To be reputed
Protect
The undisputed
Behold
Your insufficiency
Wistfully

Behold your demolition
Assume
There's no ambition
None better suited

I am hollow
None to follow

The same
Logical notion
Conceal
Secret emotion

Behind
Resting devotion
Steadily
In your ocean

Hopeful
Undistilled
Intention
Unfulfilled

Destroyed to justify
To wake up
To die
My quiet ruin

Shatter
Fall
Never found at all

Yet secretly told
To rewind

Over
And over
And over again

That's why
Even ruins
Die
4. The Flood (7:51)
Tie me down
If I reach for sunlight
Lift me up
As I scrape the ground

Cut my cord
While you see me climbing
Let me drop
To where I won't be found

Stay with me now when I'm falling
Drown me when I reach for air

Leave me broken
While my spirit shatters
Unchain me
When I drown in shame

Blindfold me
When I search for an answer
Help me see
If I've played your game
5. Triumphant (4:25)
Walls
Keeping me captive
Senses
Shutting me down

Reaching
For an emotion
Breaching
The walls of my town

Tempting
Simple depression
Attempting
To save my belief

Forceful
Sudden rebellion
Remorseful
Subliminal grief

Stay
Fight
Triumph once more
Betray
Tonight
An end of this war

Outcast
Bound to surrender
Outlasting
Those who prevail

Feeling
Nothing is over
Revealing
My secret tale
6. Within My Fence (3:16)
Aggressive mind
Sitting alone
Lying to find
Nobody home

The prophet shouts my name out loud
He says I'm stranded
Within my barricade
My life expanded

Dangerous tales
Make no sense
Hurting myself
Within my fence
7. Red (6:35)
Mindful conscience
Baseline is sound
Making decisions
When I'm around

A proud and protected
Shape of its own
Easily altered
When red flags are shown

Turning against the inevitable red
Confined for what was said
Won't sleep in your bed
Follow your thread

Saturate firmly
Elastic raft
Balancing steadily
Delicate craft

Treacherous thoughts
Render a hope
Parallel tragedy
Tightening rope

Manual guidance
Chosen and pure
Manipulating
Heads that are sure
8. Slave (6:37)
In my room
Where I lay
Demons tend to rise

Make your move
End it all
Cloud of dust
Caught in storm
You lie there silent

Justified
In the dark
With no worthy eyes

Shed a light
On your slave
Reveal them now to us all

Scent of fear
Reaching far
Cold-blooded tease

Shades
Overtaking me
Craving for release

Let us know
Where demons are
9. Moon (7:13)
Deserted throne
Radioactive hum is gone
Cold alone

Lifeless time
Lifelong crime
Witness the unstated

A moon
Without light of its own
Alone
Shadows are gone

Pale caress
Tender stress
Devil in the backdrop

Hurtful sting
Trembling
Disregard the hatred

Disregard the hated
10. Down (6:26)
The increasing resistance
The open wounds
A paralyzed flock
Steadily drowns

The incline getting steeper
While legs turning numb
The quivering surface
The unavoidable descent

Off the edge
I have been thrown
Down

Vanished
All that I've known
Down

Reaching towards the unknown

Revelation yet to come
The self is growing stronger
The dusk
Remains longer

Like parasites, they devour
Violating the creation
The absence of the conscience
The shallow congregation
11. Lower (4:34)
Lower
Further
I still believe in sunrise
Yet I shall walk through the endless fog

Stumbling ahead
Again around in circles
Underneath the skin
There's no desire

Moon and Sun might rise
Behind this curtain of smoke
Release your past and guilt
The hope will slow you down

Forget the tears of joy
Walk towards oblivion
Hear the resonance
Of my steps in the ashes

Lower
Yet I shall walk
Lower

All I know
Collapsed
Vanished
Irreversible
Burnt in flames of greed and disregard

When we couldn't seize
The surrounding beauty
To the ground we fell
We hid and now we crawl
12. Pixel (5:15)
[Bonus Track]

In the devious black
Pixel outworn
Telling a tale
Yet to be born

Trusting the desirable
Has a cost
To stay silent
To get lost

Now
Find out why
You did not want it after all

Confidence can be
A massive fraud
Nothing left
To applaud

Tender emotion
Holding your crown
Cognitive dissonance
Breaking you down
