Nightmare Logic Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Soul Sacrifice (4:12)
Into the mouth of madness,
Speaking was the mistake
You falter in your judgment,
Now your spirit is mine to break

You tried to silence my voice,
Tongue sharp like a knife
The end result? Soul sacrifice

I stand on your throat,
To silence your life
Your punishment? Soul sacrifice
2. Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe) (3:46)
Go on and look at you,
Today is your lucky day
The executioner’s here, and he’s ready to make you pay

You prayed for so long, and now you have your chance
The executioner’s here, and he’s sharpening his axe

Swing of the Axe
Cry all you want, but the blade soars today
Swing of the Axe

You buy in the for the privilege, to know what lies beyond
Death hides behind veiled faces
It only takes one swing, and you’re gone

The executioner,
The beginning and the end
He carries cold hard steel masked with the taste of medicine
Blessed with a reaper’s touch, his might cannot be matched
It’s time to pay the man, The Executioner’s Tax

Swing of the Axe
Swing at the World
Even a killer has to get paid
Swing of the Axe
3. Firing Squad (3:19)
Peace be unto thee, unless you want a piece of me
Whose side are you on?
You can’t hide
You can’t run
You wage war on life,
Logic lost in brainwashed minds
Storming heaven, it’s not too late
Hit them hard, crash the gates

I see your way of life and I think it’s a joke
“Don’t step out of line, you’re walking a tight rope!”
Before long I’ll be dead and gone
Locked up for the firing squad

Old guard changes hands
This will be your last stand
You had yours
I want mine
Second chance: Denied

I see your way of life and I think it’s a joke
“Don’t step out of line, you’re walking a tight rope!”
Before long you’ll be dead and gone
Locked up for the firing squad

Warfare everywhere?
I shudder the thought!
Lined up with the firing squad,
Now take your best shot!
4. Nightmare Logic (4:23)
The slumber of reason gives birth to all demons
A new battle takes form
Forced evolution to incite revolution
Rewrite the rules to play the game

As we struggle in the fight to survive,
Through strange domains and vicious ways
From the darkest depths we will arise
This realm will be their demise

They underestimated the force behind the hatred,
Grown with war on our minds
Lawlessness of their nightmare has left them unaware,
To the weakness they’ve exposed

We reach the summit in our climb to the top,
Through strange domains and vicious ways
In the darkest depths, a planned devised
Their spite for us is their demise

They’ve given us a devil’s playground and all his deadliest toys
We must take all we’ve learned to destroy all they know
This nightmare logic, our greatest tool
Decimate the all-righteous fool
5. Waiting Around to Die (4:24)
Human “being” has lost its meaning when you refuse to fight
If I don’t force your hand, it could cost you your life

You’re waiting around to die and you’re all right with it
You’re waiting around to die and I can’t stand for it

You can you’ve got the fire in you, then show me what you’ve got
You say the future’s yours, I say your future is filled with rot

You’re waiting around to die, how can you live with it?
Just waiting around to die and I can’t fucking stand it

You’re waiting around to die, how can you live with it?
Just waiting around to die, is this how we’re going to end it?

No
Can’t be held accountable for another hopeless soul
The choice ain’t up to me, you’ve got to fight to be free
6. Ruination (3:11)
Ruination
Wipe the whole slate clean
Ruination
This ruined nation

A nation of abominations,
Watching an empire end
We’ve set our sights on pure chaos
The void will welcome us again

We tried
We failed
In our darkest hour, we bailed

Ruination
This ruined nation

Last generation, an aberration
Watching the whole world burn
We have no mouths and we must scream
The void welcomes us again

We tried
We failed
In our darkest hour, we fucking bailed
7. If Not Us Then Who (4:11)
Get up,
Out of your cave and into the fire
Time’s short, this is our last resort
To get through to you, what have I got to do?
Who’s going to be the difference?
If not us,
Then who?

If not us, then who?

Sound off,
Take a look at your life, tell me to what do you aspire?
I want to know how far you’re willing to go
Can’t stop the force of ruin, this world will run through you
If not now, then when?
If not us, then who?

If not us, then who?
8. Crucifixation (5:22)
Territorial pissing contest, it sickens my nerves
Atrophy of morality, the people left to bleed
A foregone conclusion, the lock before the key
Raised on ideology and imperial democracy

I don’t care what you think you know
Go and leave it on your tombstone

Altering the conscious, you can see what fits
Making carnage of culture for your own benefit
Your purity is make believe, delusion spreading like a weed
Your logical fallacy is rational savagery

Crucifixation
Mental devastation
A spiritual mockery
Pure American hypocrisy

Territorial pissing contest, it sickens my nerves
Atrophy of morality, the people left to bleed
A foregone conclusion, the lock before the key
Raised on ideology and imperial democracy

I don’t care what you think you know
Go and leave it on your tombstone

Altering your conscience, you can see what sticks
Indoctrinating violence for your own benefit
Corrupting everything you see, delusions spreading like a weed
Your thirst for totality is rational savagery
