Bloodstone & Diamonds Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Now We Die (7:10)
Standing at the edge of the world
Uncertainty calling as the page unfurls
Fortune, Heaven or Hell
Shedding my body of this mortal shell

Black steel and iron
A Lion heart is forged from these bones
Fear not, the discontent you hide
Awake from the slumber and define this time

No fear to pay the price
And with this now we die

Ashes to ashes
The ocean crashes
Louder and louder it cries

Over and and over
The sands wash over
Facing embracing the tides

And with this now we die

Screaming violence into the void
Is anyone listening or is all destroyed?
Fighting heaven and earth
Saving your children from their pain and hurt

Bloodstone and Diamonds
Nothing can break the strength of these stones
Cast of the shackles of the past
Live in the moment nothing ever lasts

Now cross the bridge of sighs
And with this now we die

Ashes to ashes
The ocean crashes
Louder and louder it cries

Over and and over
The sands wash over
Facing embracing the tides

And with this now we die

Are you ready to die?

Standing at the edge of the world(x2)

[Solo: Demmel]

The damned are we
Abused and beat, we're left for dead
We raise our head,
For we are strong, and they are wrong

So scream with me
"I do believe"
I need your help, for i have knelt
Held fist at skies and cried out "why?

Your shoulder strength, it gives me length
We lift ourselves, together meld
So take my hand, and don't look back
And sing with me, "let new life be, Old life goodbye"

And now we die
For we are one
Forever young

And with this now we die (x4)

Are you ready?

Standing at the edge of the world (x2)
2. Killers & Kings (4:31)
Dark lady read me the future
The ancient verse hidden away
I turn from the evergrey

Tarot cards keep us enraptured
Open mind, become a sage
Let this unlock the cage

Ancient power
Darkest hour

Open your third eye and you'll see

Killers and kings
Inheritors of earth
Killers and kings
From death there comes rebirth

And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings

Look to earth, summon the master
Awake the human living inside
Ecclesiasticide

The Hangman gives into temperance
The Sun shines over The Fool
High Priestess spreads her rule

Death and rebirth
Decay and mirth

Open your third eye and you'll see

Killers and kings
Inheritors of earth
Killers and kings
From death there comes rebirth

And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings

A diamond bears our ring

The king of pentacles is here
Strength and Fortitude help to push away the fear
We stand atop the mountain with The Hermit and The Lamp
As The Lovers in the Knight of Swords give in to the damned

What do the cards say?
The prophecy remains
The Devil in the Emperor could keep us locked in chains
And the Death card does'nt mean you die
It means a change is coming that you simply can't deny

Reborn, Rebirth
From death comes rebirth

Killers and kings
Inheritors of earth
Killers and kings
From death there comes rebirth

And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings

Killers and kings
Inheritors of earth
Killers and kings
From death there comes rebirth

And as an army we will sing
A diamond bears our ring
Killers and kings
3. Ghosts Will Haunt My Bones (6:06)
Let me feel my palms around your throat
Let me see the pain of lost control
Let me hear your heart racing inside
Let me see the darkness that you fight
When the night crashes down

See (No vision)
Can you believe? (Derision)
Will I fall? (Down so far)
Into the deep (It's so dark)

Ghosts will haunt my bones
So just leave me alone

Let me taste the salt within your tears
Let me swallow hope; it disappears
Let me steal the mind that makes you whole
Let me peel a layer from your soul

When the night crashes down
(See) No vision
(Can you believe?) Derision
(Will I fall?) Down so far
(Into the deep) It's so dark

Ghosts will haunt my bones

When the night crashes down
(See) No vision
(Can you believe?) Derision
(Will I fall?) Down so far
(Into the deep) It's so dark

Ghosts will haunt my bones
They won't leave me alone

In darkest night I lay awakened with
These thoughts of endless black that never quit
The tortured thoughts inside my head you see
They hide a mask of pain that's so ugly

These ghosts come haunt my bones
They won't leave me alone

From my throat the agonies emit
My demons wrestle and my thoughts conflict
The stench of bile, as I purge this hate
An inner struggle I can't separate

These ghosts come haunt my bones
They won't leave me alone
Thunder cracks and dark furies sound
When the night crashes down

(Solo)

These ghosts come haunt my bones
They won't leave me alone
Thunder cracks and dark furies sound
When the night crashes
When the night crashes down
When the night crashes down
4. Night of Long Knives (6:48)
You won't see us come
You won't see us come
You won't see us come
You won't see us come

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives

Midnight we KILL

In summer of '69, there came a prophet
His words were used to propel the minds of the weak
He sprawled them balls deep within the desert
His followers into the belly of the beast
Don't look into his eyes
Buried with knowledge past the point of no return
The pride of the work he'd done
The family all the dreams they could
The prophecy of Charles Manson and what had been done in the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

Sing of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of mind
The family fatal
Pitch black

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives
Midnight we kill

The hills were echoing with their laughter
Happily ever after was a faded memory
Rosemary and the baby of Polanski
6 people dead and bloody
In the hills of family
Now screaming for their lives
Praying and pleading for lives of babies unborn
The spawn of hell they just begin
The horror of the splitting skin
Noose tied around their necks
To beat their dying breaths
In the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

Sing of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of mind
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives

We have been so wrong
We will fall
We will fall
No tomorrow

We'll fall away tonight

Don't look into his eyes
Buried with knowledge past the point of no return
The pride of the work he'd done
The family all the dreams they could
The prophecy of Charles Manson and what had been done in the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

Sing of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of mind
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives


You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives


You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
On the night of long knives
5. Sail Into the Black (8:29)
We sail into the black
We sail into the black
We sail into the black
We sail into the black

And all those secrets
Lost in your eyes
And all those regrets
You hold inside
And all those memories
Left by design
And all those mysteries
Lost in your eyes

We sail into the black
We sail into the black

And all those footsteps
Washed in the tides
And all those droplets
Blood into wine
And all those heartaches
Tears that you've cried
And all those mistakes
Washed in the tides
Washed in the tides

We sail into the black
We sail into the black

I stare at the stricken
The follies of man
And the horror that lives in your eyes
And once were forgiven
The mind explodes in waves of terror

Burn my eyes
Tear at the skin,
The crawling beneath will begin
Side by side
Pounding the heretic drums
As we rise or we fall
And all these scars
The nightmare it calls
The fear and betrayal begin
We've come so far
The shit we ingest
With a mouthful of spit and protest

We sail into the black
We sail into the black

The black candle fades
Go disappear lost and forever broken
Shattered like glass
The scars and the sex
The lies and the fables we tell
And all we are
This fate is your choice
Regrets that you'll take to the grave
These threads of silk
That held this together
Rotting and curdled as milk

We sail into the black
We sail into the black

(Solo)

We sail into the black
We sail into the black
We sail into the black
We sail into the black
6. Eyes of the Dead (6:24)
I am no longer alive
Somewhere along this life I have died inside
My soul has been denied
Rise of the black hearts
We take to the skies
The Ravens of omen
We don't go down without a fight.
Your grave we dig tonight
With fury and might

We're freaks and we're outcasts
Unwanted and dumb
We scavenge the land because we were all given to none
And our blood is one

Black wings spread their ebony quills
Bloody nails the hand that wills
The murder, murder
Wind is at our backs
Murder, murder
Now the crows attack
For once in this life
You'll see through these eyes
Through The Eyes Of The Dead

(Solo)

Skies become scorched with feathers and crests
Laughing like jackals and our teeth are sharpened and wet
Black talons claw your chest
Tear at the flesh
Virtues of evil now thrown to the flood
The crows of apocalypse
Dragging your heart through the mud
And our teeth drip blood

Black wings spread their ebony quills
Bloody nails the hand that wills
The murder, murder
Wind is at our backs
Murder, murder
Now the crows attack
For once in this life
You'll see through these eyes
Through The Eyes Of The Dead

When the day of reckoning comes
And you cry out "Babylon's won"
Eyes so dark, like ink we blacken the sun

So call my name, "Raven"
So fear this name, "Raven"
Hold dear this
You will never fucking break me
I've an army that will strip you to the bone

GO!

(Solo)

We'll feast on your carrion dreams
Blacken your skies
Shrieking the coldest of screams
Our shadows stand agleam

For we are the dead and we'll rise up and say
Nothing will break us
Nothing will stand in our way
We will seize the day
Little man the worm has turned
Power and respect we've earned

Black wings spread their ebony quills
Bloody nails the hand that wills
The murder, murder
Wind is at our backs
Murder, murder
Now the crows attack
For once in this life
You'll see through these eyes
Bloody nails
The murder, murder
Murder, murder
For once in this life
You'll see through these eyes

For these are the eyes
That your god denies
So just one last time, see through these eyes
Through The Eyes Of The Dead
Through The Eyes Of The Dead
Through The Eyes Of The Dead
Through The Eyes Of The Dead
The Eyes Of The Dead
7. Beneath the Silt (4:43)
Sailing under sheets of rain
The waves crashing inside my brain
A gray horizon lies below
The oceans pulling undertow

Swallowed by the silence of this watery abyss
Save me I'm drowning
Beneath the silt
I'm sinking
Beneath the silt

Clouds of ashen paint the sky
A black fog forces down the eyes
A casket floating out from shore
Depression closer evermore

Swallowed by the silence of a watery abyss
Save me I'm drowning
Beneath the silt
I'm sinking
Beneath

Climbing the walls
Climbing the walls
Climbing the walls
Climbing the walls

Beneath the silt
Beneath the silt
Beneath the silt
Beneath the silt

(Solo)

Swallowed by the silence of the watery abyss
Swallowed by the silence of
Grasping at the skies above
I'm drowning
Beneath the silt
I'm sinking
Beneath the silt
I'm drowning
Beneath the silt
I'm sinking
Beneath the
Beneath the silt
8. In Comes the Flood (7:22)
All hail
Praises be to thee
Oh ye paper deity
As we hail our sacred cow
To the bankers we will bow
Endless profit from their wars
Making slaves of all the poor
Our new god is on the hill
"The Almighty" Dollar Bill

I want to burn down Wall Street, baby
And fan the flames of discontent like Hades
Saints of Red, White, and Blue
Pass bonds of junk to you
Our flag has all but bled to green

In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America

Live to buy or time to die
It's all for sale on credit lines
Until the fucking end of time
Shackled to the dotted line
Oh the market may be free
But not for you and me
Succumb as we forget
To the Angel Of Debt

I don't give a fuck if I'm rich, motherfucker
We bought that line 'cause we're a bunch of suckers
We're fighting for the scraps
We've let our conscience lapse
By turning cash into a god

In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America

(Solo)

Moneytheistic religion
Saints of the red, white, blue, and green
Who dare to inflate my life's interest rate
'Til their rich bellies burst at the seams
Our lives nothing more to them
Than a snap of financial decision
Blinded by a TV screen
All hail the American Dream

And woe to thee
Our life empty
If we hold this dear
Then lose our fear

America
Wake up

In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America
In comes the flood
Wake up America
9. Damage Inside (3:24)
The bell tolls on as the rain comes down
On my face, the drops, they sound
I slowly melt into grey abyss
Depression and her endless kiss
I hope to feel the life again
End the numbness, living in
I sit in silence, deaf to all

And I can't look you in the eye
I don't want you to see the damage inside
I've been gone for so long

My demons pull me into the hole
To dance with leaches that drink my soul
The violins play the endless song
From hearts broken everlong

I can't look you in the eye
I don't want you to see the damage inside
I've been gone for so long

and I can't look you in the eye
I don't want you to see the damage inside
I've been gone for so long
10. Game Over (6:36)
Oh your sweet little lies
Oh your sweet little lies
I can hear when I hold you close to me
When I look in your eyes I see through your disguise
What I see is an only lonely void
And I can see hell in your eyes
Cause you're drowning inside
Those fake tears that you've cried
As I claw my way from your tragedy
Emptiness is your bride
Arrogance is your pride
I won't drown in another's misery
And you won't pull me down to die

NO!

Stuck in this prison with a brother I loved
Stuck in this prison with the memories of...
Another time, when music's all that we had
Bonded by anger and addictions, so glad
Always together, but no words are spoken
This is the sound of a friendship broken
Trapped and climbing up the walls
How the fuck do I get out of these pitfalls?

And you say that life is just a game and
Everyone who plays is just a pawn
And shame on me it went so long
How could I have been so wrong?
I've forever gone colder
If life is just a game then Game Over

Dreaming of choking someone I used to know
Strangling the negativity that they sow
Resent has now become the face in the mask
That plays upon a bitter two-man cast
Go find someone else to blame your problems
Trying to fuck me, because you can't solve them
Stop!
You never gave a shit
We almost fucking quit, because of how much you hated it

You say that life is just a game and
Everyone who plays is just a pawn
And shame on me it went so long
How could I have been so wrong?
I've forever gone colder
If life is just a game then Game Over

For as long as you're alive I'll curse your worthless name
For as long as you're alive I'll curse your worthless name
On the day
On the day of your demise
Unburied and left for the flies
Believe me that I will piss upon your grave
Forgiveness will greet me on someday
But I'll never forget all this pain
Let there be no mistake
This is not a game!

Oh your sweet little lies
Oh your sweet little lies
I can hear when I hold you close to me
When I look in your eyes I see through your disguise
What I see is an only lonely void
Cause you're drowning inside
Those fake tears that you've cried
As I claw my way from your tragedy
Emptiness is your bride
Arrogance is your pride
I won't drown in another's misery
Forever this friendship has died

And you say that life is just a game and
Everyone who plays is just a pawn
And shame on me it went so long
How could I have been so wrong?
I've forever gone colder
If life is just a game then Game Over
Game Over
Game Over
Game Over
Game Over
11. Imaginal Cells (3:36)
Instrumental
12. Take Me Through the Fire (5:48)
The drum beats on as I fall in trance
Stepping away from the endless dance
My enemies in the endless abyss
The snakes slithering out of the mist
No subtleties truth is all that I ask
No pleasantries you can take off that mask
This world has left me bruised and callous
Empty heart is filled with malice
Cold
A blackened hole where there was once a soul

No tender mercies here
Endure and persevere
Erase the obstacles that try to find me
Fight through their ignorance
Suffer my persistence
Eclipse the light that will try to blind me

Take me through the fire
And if you lift me up then I will follow
Take me through the fire
So take me through the fire

Too many voices fill the empty void
Too many choices and were left devoid
The killing fields fill with bodies dead
The sun goes down and last rites are read
Cause even now I keep my ear to the streets
And they whisper to me your deceits
You better sleep with one eye open
Never let my name be spoken ill
Don't make me send the lions out to kill

No tender mercies here
Endure and persevere
Erase the obstacles that try to find me
Fight through their ignorance
Suffer my persistence
Eclipse the light that will try to blind me

Take me through the fire
And if you lift me up then I will follow
Take me through the fire
So take me through the fire

I will prevail
I'm stone and shale
Obsidian
Your oblivion
Becomes

(Solo)

No tender mercies here
Endure and persevere
Erase the obstacles that try to find me
Fight through their ignorance
Suffer my persistence
Eclipse the light that will try to blind me

Take me through the fire
And if you lift me up then I will follow
Take me through the fire
So take me through the fire

And as I fight on through weary eyes
I take your head as we walk through Fire
Take me through the fire
