Scales of Judgement Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Forever (5:10)
See the light that's shining in a way I never knew
Touched me deeply, made me feel alive
Suddenly my life had changed, it scared me to the bone
A challenge that I can't escape
Deep within the feelings will remain words can't explain
It's growing stronger every day
Sometimes there's sorrow, there is pain but be assured
That I'd never ever walk away
I will be there beside you

I'd ride the storm
I praise the Heavens
I'll be your guide
Forever!
To die for you
I praise the Heavens
I'll be your guide
Forever!

If it seems the world comes down on you
You think that no one cares
I'll be there with arms open wide
It's an inner strength
Like power from the core
That gives me force
To stand and fight the
Challenge of my life
I will be there beside you

I'd ride the storm
I praise the Heavens
I'll be your guide
Forever!
To die for you
I praise the Heavens
I'll be your guide
Forever!

I'd ride the storm
I praise the Heavens
I'll be your guide
Forever!
To die for you
I praise the Heavens
I'll be your guide
Forever!
2. Anubis (6:58)
Welcome the dead let me show you the way
Gently you pass the gate
To the hall of the Gods
I can foresee your destiny

Into oblivion - to live again

Accompanied you will be reborn soon
Cause I'm the guardian of necropolis
I am the scales of judgement

Into oblivion - to live again

Now gathering all your wealth
Bereavers fulfill their task
Your way to the underworld
Is paved with ivory and gold

Through winds of tears and rain
Through sorrow, loss and pain
Your way through life was long
Before dawn you will be reborn

Into the chamber of embalmment
A sacred ritual, a ceremonial chant
Screams sound within the mind
While body and entrails lie in state

Into oblivion - to live again
3. In Oceans of Lies (4:41)
I, I"m on a daily quest in the deep sea called life
You, you will be my prey cause I got to survive
My teeth are sharpened, I'm ready to strike
I'm on the prowl, you can't hide
Shark attack

I, I am so confident but beware of second sight
You, you got no time to come and none is in your might
The force of all evil will be my relief
I am the mud, I'm the thief
Shark attack

Like cobwebs I'm pulling the strings in oceans of lies
In oceans of lies

Life is just a game to play of hunter and prey
Mark that you are one of those that finally will stay
I'll never surrender and never give up
I will go on, I won't stop shark attack

Like cobwebs I'm pulling the strings in oceans of lies
In oceans of lies

Like cobwebs I'm pulling the strings in oceans of lies
In oceans of lies
Forever I will be alone in oceans of lies
In oceans of lies

5. The Masque of the Red Death (4:43)
The red death was raging outside the castle walls
While the noble fools danced inside of the prince's court
No one realized the danger - the stranger among the crowd
As they were laughing and listening to the clock's demonic sound
Will they see the light of day again?

The brazen lungs of the ebony clock did cry out
All at once the crowd was aware of the sound
The 7th chamber of black and blood red turned out to be their grave
Before the last chime sank into silence the red death raised his hand
He said "Now you'll feel a last embrace!"

Scarlet stains the signs of danger
That took hold of them all
Who was the one - saint or stranger?
To make them fall one by one
And wear the masque of the red death

The stranger behind the mask had shown his face
Before he took them in for his last embrace
Now they realized the danger - the stranger among the crowd
As they stood shocked and afraid of the ebony clock's unholy sound
And the flames of all tripods expired

The masque of the red death
6. Flame of War (6:57)
The flag upon the hill is waving in the dawn
The landscape lies in silent peace waiting for the morn
The Irish colors sparkling in the children's eyes
Calm sea in the haven where the "Pride of Ireland" lies
But dark clouds gathered all around
False pride and hatred will be bound
From far beyond the sea across the rivers wide
They come straight down from that hill, the fire's burning bright
"The Village Inn" where people met is dead and gone
Road blocks on the street, they burn - arsonists have won

And dark clouds gathered all around
False pride and hatred will be bound

Give me an answer, one reason more
Why so many brothers must die in the flame of war

One land, one nation, even religion's the same
But they're all to take the blame
Oh - it's a dirty betrayal
Of the book that they swore to believe in
But they accept to live in sin
Now they swear they won't give in

Give me an answer, one reason for
Why so many brothers
Must die in the flame of war
7. Terrified (4:54)
Sentence of death came to my ears
With doom I met before the trial
Eternal night surrounds me now
No doubt the message came to clear

Unconsciousness now faded
Don't let me die this way
My body weak and jaded
For our sins we must pay

I heard of the inquisition
Their morbid ways of terror's sick
I can't believe this to be true
Facing a blade over my chest

Unconsciousness now faded
Don't let me die this way
My body's weak and jaded
For our sins we must pay

I don't know how long but I lie awake
My every sense is fearing
Darkness and blade
Darkness and blade I fear them
I'm chilled to the bone
Masters of pain I hear them
Hearts turned to stone - turned to stone

Awake or asleep - make a choice and still it means nothing
No dream - this is real - I accept the truth I'll have to die

Darkness and blade I fear them
I'm chilled to the bone
Masters of pain I hear them
Hearts turned to stone - turned to stone
8. Exodus (8:22)
Blood paints the ground
Red graves int he sand
We're rotting in the dust
Fearing the whip we're burned to the bone
But staying awake is a must
Waiting for dust we sharpen our blades ready for quick surprise
Brothers in arms we'll fight to survive but we're prepared to die

We pray for salvation
You send seven plagues
We'd travel to nowhere
To leave pharoah's lair

Die by the black death
Fear for your lives
Locusts fill the sky
When will you make up
Your mind let us go or
Else you'll continue to die
An angel of death will
Come for your sons and
Leave a trail of tears
People of Egypt open the
Gates for us a new age nears

We pray for salvation
You send seven plagues
We'd travel to nowhere
To leave pharoah's lair

Endless desert sun

I've received the power to end all this here
Slavery shall end
By the grace of God we'll leave this land now don't stand in our way
Don't you ever try to stop us because
The Lord is by our side
Don't you ever break your word you will drown in a sea of lies
Drown in a sea of your broken promise

Many must die, leave graves in the sand we're running in dust
Suffering from heat we're burned out to the bone
But holding on is a must
Waiting for dusk to escape from the sun
Waiting for the night
Oh Lord above we fight to survive do not let us die

We prayed for salvation
You sent seven plagues
We travel to nowhere
Now do what is fair

Endless desert sun
