Thegodmachine Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Thegodmachine: the Speaking Stone (1:22)
Trembling in the shadow of your creation
Your knees grow weak
Watch my eyes beam with gold
And you’ll keep coming back
If you fixate your desire upon me
You’ll give me breath with your lungs
Feed me living!
I am what you fashioned
Your praise gives me power
With it I'll devour you
2. Bad Blood (3:36)
Grieve that your body’s so worm-eaten inside
Crawling with infection, fed by your lies
Drop into the pit you dug with your pride
Now you’re nothing but a slave
You polish yourself
As if you were a monument
Reaching high like a tower to hell
And the ground concedes

Pulled from the earth like rotting roots
Purge the demons draining your veins
Pride in your heart deceives you
Dragged from the depths of a dying world
Purge the demons draining your veins
Pride in your heart deceives you

Keep your teeth before your tongue
Or you’ll claw for divinity
Your filthy rags: a disgusting crown
The offspring of an unhealed wound

You wear your skin like a scoured corpse
After you heave you return like a dog

Pulled from the earth like rotting roots
Purge the demons draining your veins
Pride in your heart deceives you
Dragged from the depths of a dying world
Purge the demons draining your veins
Pride in your heart deceives you

Keep your teeth before your tongue
Or you’ll claw for divinity
Your filthy rags: a disgusting crown
The offspring of an unhealed wound

You had love
But your heart is not your own
Grace is not beyond you
But you walked away

The heavens will expose you
Hell-bent on destruction
Hell-bent on escape
Show us there’s nowhere to hide
Show us fear
3. A Pattern in Pain (5:16)
As I charge the bloody fields
Waiting for your hands to pierce the depths
The world is stirring
Yet you keep silent to me

This battle shakes the ground
But your voice could split the earth
The world is stirring
Yet you keep silent to me

Eternity will never be long enough with you
When every step I take feels so worn
If heralds of glory sing
The minute life begins to fade
Then death is just a bridge between us

See the enemy line the hills
So hide my fears from me
The world is stirring
Yet you keep silent to me

Like a burning wound it kills me
That I haven't heard you in years
The world is stirring
Yet you keep silent

Eternity will never be long enough with you
When every step I take feels so worn
If heralds of glory sing
The minute life begins to fade
Then death is just a bridge between us

All I am is a scar-laden body
>From those years you were gone
Now You appear to me
Faced with suffering death
You restore this porous heart that bleeds
Tvery time it beats
Your suture lives in me
There must be something You wished me to see
A pattern in this pain

I see a pattern
I see You in this pain
I've waited for years
For what a brush with death has shown me
I will trust in Your grace
That speaks of the end
As my life begins to fade
I know Your blood was the bridge
The bridge between us

Your blood was the bridge between us
Your blood
(Your blood was the bridge between us)
Your blood
(Your blood was the bridge between us)
Your blood
(Your blood was the bridge between us)
Your blood
4. I Am the Lion (4:52)
Son of Mine, can you hear the Sound of this repetition as clockwork?
I’m always peeling back your skin to rip these legions from your heart.
Every scar you leave yourself is a Jewel in the making.
I would give new Passion, yet you’ve turned your back.
A devil of details cut your throat.
You’re so addicted.
You’ll swing the hammer and I’ll turn your nails to Gold.
You will know My voice when the hair on your neck stands up.
I opened this Door, and I will bring the End.
All gives way, and all will fall to their knees and beg for Grace.
Son of Mine these letters, I swear, have not been burnt.
My heart, a child trembling at the sight of his wake,
Is longing to rest in the hollow of Your hand.
I know now what it is to be helpless,
Like a foot on my neck to the ground,
I'm longing to rest in the hollow of Your hand.
Here I am.
I await you.
You will know My voice.
Here I am.
I AM THE LION.
Clear the path. I am the Lion.
You brood of snakes.
I am the Lion.
5. From One End of the Sky to the Other (4:28)
Part the dark sky
That keeps me from Your eyes
Even as the darkness descends
My cry came to Your ears
As my heroes fail me
They leave me to fend on my own
My cry came to Your ears

The earth withers beneath me
I'm always looking towards the clouds
I know we are not alone
Can't help but feel You in my bones

When all is dead and gone
Your love will still remain
From one end of the sky to the other
You burn your banner
Cords of the grave
Snares of death
Cannot take me from You
I see the eyes of the empty
They form an eclipse above me
Until I find
Safety in Your memory
Safety in Your memory
Safety in Your memory
Safety in the memory
Of Your faithfulness

Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from Your feet
The seas and valleys all run dry
So reach through the sky and capture me
My cry came to Your ears
(Bright lights are breaking through the sky)
Dark clouds are pouring from Your feet
Your love saved no mercy for Yourself
Reach through the sky and capture me!

The earth withers beneath me
I'm always looking towards the clouds
I know we are not alone
Can't help but feel You in my bones

When all is dead and gone
Your love will still remain
From one end of the sky to the other
You burn your banner

The earth withers beneath me
I'm always looking towards the clouds
I know we are not alone
Can't help but feel You in my...
Bones
6. Legacy (0:58)
Instrumental
7. Crowns (4:02)
Draw your depiction
Stars become scars in the palm of Your hand
Bridged by blood
Your blood paints the paragon of unrequited love (unrequited love)
Do you remember pain followed by reassurance
And the light shining through
Bearing the poise of a Redeemer
Choking the shadows defeating death

Providence:
Laid out before us
Father’s arms
Reaching as
The nations will hear a new song
As we’re lead to the water
The nations will hear a new song
As we’re lead to the water

Give us discernment
Doors that glow at the sound
Of forerunners’ words (forerunners' words)
We are empty
Until you sit at the throne of our hearts
Break us free
Unshackled from our dire condition
We have hope

Kings of earth, bow down
Lose your crowns
Kings of earth, bow down
Lose your crowns
Bow!

The nations will hear a new song
As we’re lead to the water
The nations will hear a new song
Of rebirth
Of rebirth

The nations will hear...
The nations will hear...
The nations will hear a new song
The nations will hear a new song
As we're lead to the water
A new song...
A new song...
8. The Wishing Well (4:31)
A thunderstorm a distant shore
I’ve witnessed this before
Patience was fleeting
If a thousand coins on the ocean floor would bring back love to me
I’ll wait forever

Fill the sea with dreams of a wishing well
Waves bring back my coins to me
Drain the deep that teems with my empty shells
Slaves of sand still call for me

I once had love to give
I once had hoped to live
The rarest stones will break my bones
And golden salt stops my lungs
The perfect limbs and haunting eyes
Begs the seas: begin to rise

Fill the sea with dreams of a wishing well
Waves bring back my coins to me
Drain the deep that teems with my empty shells
Slaves of sand still call for me

[Man:]
And when these delusions come to fruition
Believe you me
I'll strangle my self into nothingness, nothingness
And be reborn from the dream of a blasphemous fool
In my sordid pelt of mold
I’ll earn back years to me
The god of a nightmare will fall
As I take back what is…

[Devil:]
Mine!
Worthless swine
Enraptured by my vanity
Your soul sank under the weight
Of gold you offered me

[Man:]
A waste of a life, squandered my heart until it rests
On the ocean floor, barren
Watching the light descend
Deeper and deeper
A deadening feeling starts to grow in my ribs
From where I lie

([Devil:] From where I hide)
[Man:] The waves overflow
([Devil:] The snakes overgrown)
[Man:] With my blood
([Devil:] With your blood)

[Man:]
Where are my years?
I’ll bleed dry by myself
I wish I was someone

[Devil:]
You wish you were someone else
You wish you were someone else
You wish you were someone else...
9. My Horses Are Many (3:28)
This is what it's like to be on fire
Burning through the coals
What a way to release this fury
And be consumed
A false prophet and a terrible liar
Trading money for souls
Abomination of a broad horizon
You sold them for a frail mansion

It's nothing but dust
Your recompense and tongue
Will be fed down your throat
Oh you’d topple the pillars of a church
To make yourself a god

When you speak, it’s a dead language
When you speak, it’s a dead language

Forfeit (the grace you never...) preach
Forfeit
The grace you never preach
The grace you never preach
The grace you never preach
The grace you never preach

Limb for limb
You’ll be torn to shreds
Eye for an eye
You'll be torn to shreds

Throw it down like you never want to see it again
Come on!
If this is a slippery slope
You’re at the bottom of the ditch
Take advantage of the children
Yet you call yourself a man
If this is a slippery slope
You’re at the bottom of the ditch
Headlong
Headlong
Come on!
10. Grace Disguised by Darkness (5:38)
I’ve felt their lives slip through my fingers.
Now I watch them circle the drain.
With breath like the torrent (THEY SINK SINK)
To the bottom.
I’ve wasted so many chances,
My efforts’ not a drop in the barrel.
With a body like a boulder (I SINK SINK)
To the bottom.

I’ve shown my teeth and have had them kicked in one too many times.
In my yearning He split the rock, and the water gushed forth.

A voice keeps yelling, a voice keeps yelling
“This is where your proud waves end”
My fingers trace lines, on the surface I’m consumed.
The sinking feeling, the sinking feeling
“This is where your proud waves end”
I take my first step, I’m thrown over the edge.

I TRIED TO WALK ON THE WATER, BUT NOW I JUST SWIM

They slipped through my fingers.
Now I watch them circle the drain.
With breath like the torrent (THEY SINK SINK)
To the bottom.
I’ve wasted so many chances,
My efforts’ not a drop in the barrel.
With a body like a boulder (I SINK SINK)
To the bottom.

I scream your name.
Are you outside of your wrath?
Oh God, I scream your name.

And amongst the pile of dead…

I see a light split the water from the heavens,
And I feel God glowing inside me,
My heart SHAKES with the music of the spheres.
I no longer tremble in fear,
For Redemption has found me,
And in Redemption comes the overflow…
11. Pendulum (2:54)
Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet
The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me

Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet
The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me

Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet
The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me

Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet
The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me

Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet
The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me

My heart a child trembling in sight of his wake
(Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet)
Your blood was the bridge between us
(The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me)
(A new song)

My heart a child trembling in sight of his wake
(Bright lights are breaking through the sky
Dark clouds are pouring from your feet)
Your blood was the bridge between us
(The seas and valleys all run dry
Reach through the sky and capture me)
(A new song)

Reach through the sky and capture me
12. Thegodmachine: the Rider (6:36)
Trapped in the trenches
Overrun by idols
We've strapped pride to our bones
And sealed it with our skin
Looking for a way to beat this system
We're trading life for a corpse
Entangled with the dead
And silenced by our guilt
We've strapped pride to our bones
And sealed it with our skin

I've encased myself in a tomb
With gods as dead as me
Surrounded by stones
Of depravity

I'm already dead
And I'm running out of answers
Outrunning all the answers
We want more
We want more

Every failure leaves me deeper in the ground
Show me what I've become

Oh, hanging skulls on my branches
Waist below the earth
I was a fool of lust
Since the day of my birth

Oh my love, I haven't let you go
Golden skies will divide to receive your soul
Oh my son, you've just begun to grow
But we've strapped pride to our bones
And sealed it with our skin

I've encased myself in a tomb
With gods as dead as me
Surrounded by stones
Of depravity
Turn this tomb to dust

I'm already dead
Oh my love, I haven't let you go
Golden skies will divide to receive your soul
Oh my son, you've just begun to grow
But we've strapped pride to our bones
And sealed it with our skin

Oh my God, You never let me go
Oh my God, You never let me go
Oh my God, You never let me go
(As lifeless as statues)
Oh my God, You never let me go
(As fleeting as dust in the air)
Oh my God, You never let me go
(We've robbed your splendor and replaced it with deceit)
Oh my God, You never let me go
(Replaced with deceit)
Oh my God, You never let me go
(Replaced with ruin)

Show us what you see
Grace come swiftly
Show us what you see
Grace come swiftly
Show us what you see
Grace come swiftly
Show us what you see
Grace come swiftly
Show us what you see
Grace come swiftly
Show us what you see
Grace come swiftly

Like the waves upon the shore
(Grace come swiftly)
We can't hear you in our hearts anymore
(Oh God give us rest in you)
Grace come swiftly and drag the axe further towards me
(Oh God give us rest in you)
The Son of man approaches the hollows
(Oh God give us rest in you)
He breaks the guilt in one fell swoop
(Oh God give us rest in you)
Beheading our treachery
(Oh God give us rest in you)
Oh God would you bring a burning downpour of Your, of Your...
Blood

I can hear the hordes of ghosts
Screaming in Your choir
But would Your love make any difference
In a graveyard

There's no running now
His thunder shakes the earth
There will be no trace of betrayal

All creation trembles before You
As You lift Your hand
Your will be done
13. That I May Love You (1:52)
