Shadow Walk Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Assembly of Drama (2:35)
We’ve crossed the ocean of pain
And craft our fall with our hands
This mind can take in the blame
For the broken may rise yet again

We plunder ourselves of zeal
Pushed against the wall of our faith
For now is the moment of truth
The triumph of drama forged in our lives
2. Your Dead Heart (4:33)
Liberate your open wounds
Still they won’t stand to hear your prayers
Realize your faith and pave your path
Don’t let your tear go dry
Holding on to you, my dead heart

Life, a paradox that disassociates the universe
Filled with the pain and the mourning
of a thousand saints
Who don’t know where they are heading
Is this the next chapter?
Your manual life decays
I’ve heard enough of this systematic inner chaos

I don’t know where the end begins
Drifting underneath my passion
And who denies walking among those who,
still hypnotized?

Egoistic lecturers contemporize your weary head
Drug-feeding feeble minds with sugar-coated words
They speak in vilest tongues
Raising fast the birth of hatred
A newfound vicious realm
Eagerly manifested

Gather up your speed
This is not your worst imagination
And if we were to stop now
There is no place that’s left to rest

Breathe in the fume of the gods
Their might is the presence of your light
The feeling of emptiness
When you realize that all you’ve got is pride

But stand strong make the most out of this day

Watching while you reminiscent
The days that could be and the hours that would be
Stacked up in that corner of your memory
Remember not who you once were
Let it go
Laid to rest
And as you storm through your wildest dreams
Save a place for ‘will’

When the night was dark and the air so cold
We brought forth the fire
When the gods were jealous
and the wild beasts clawed
We tempered iron
When the night was dark and the air so cold
We brought forth the fire
When the gods were jealous
and the wild beasts clawed
We forged an alliance

Breathe in the fume of the gods
Their might is the presence of your light
The feeling of emptiness
When you realize that all you’ve got is pride

But stand strong make the most out of this day
Facilitate the impossible
The words of cowards and parasites
They burn down in you, washed up and dissipate
Burn down the impossible
Pick up your pace and feel your dead heart beat
3. The Aggravator (4:48)
So I hear once again your self-righteous,
made-up bullshit
Blood boils to the extreme
Drowned in your voice of arrogance
Turned the pages of your words and silence,
all that's between
Tantalizing, puke-inducing
I've come to finalize your act

I move with swift to nail you down
This arsenal will not stop me now
And as you taint the world with your fake,
compulsive, dying vision
Witness your final coming
This is your fitting end

And you see in your eyes
The truth distorted, blame the scapegoats
Traumatized, you get a fix on the milliard souls,
who bleed at your hands
Sinners lost without the gift of reason
Build up another lie
Your only salvation

The hours closing in
Again and again you waste the sands of time
Your own demise in making
Cross-turned by the dagger in your hand

A portrait of a broken man
Powerless, abandoned hope I see in those eyes
A creation in such vain
You've become the failure of the gods

Blinded and caged
You cannot shake off your filth
Naked and scared
The aggravator will go down

A total war is coming here
The greater force will bury you
Restore
Build a path anew
Resist
The blade is an inch away from you

A mind tainted by your treason
Breeds a ground for discontent
A new way of finding prison
In the frail hearts of men

The bestiality of men
Destroyers of the mortal lives
Distorting all the rays of light
To cage yourself in dungeon deep

The hours closing in
Again and again you waste the sands of time
Your own demise in making
Cross-turned by the dagger in your hand
You've brought yourself this hell to revel your seven sins

A portrait of a broken
A portrait of a broken man
Powerless, abandoned hope I see in those eyes
A creation in such vain
You've become the failure of the gods

Blinded and caged
You cannot shake off your filth
Naked and scared
The aggravator will go down

I move with swift to nail you down
Fasten your seat belt we are going
for a ride that will make you beg on your knees
Put aside your excuse
You will be smitten by the stars
Witness your final coming
This is your fitting end
The pendulum is calling
Your shallow world will collapse
4. The Contender's Abyss (2016 ver.) (4:46)
Shackled through the ages of mistrust
In a circle of the sick and tired rules
The denigration is the price you'll pay
And the sum of it all is the fear we face

All those who oppose the inner faith
Content with feeding off the waste
Never seeing the dissonance in this world
In retrospect, we’ve bled ourselves
Towards the never fading wall we race
Pulled out of defeated characters
Contemporize, kill the vanity
Your trial will mark your worth

The roaring thunder quakes your heart
The burning fire ignites inside
In defiance, your might defined
The contender shall arise

Remove the lesser attachments
No satisfaction of the snakes
Recurring visions of the enigmatic
Surrounded by the collapsing standards
Know that you are built to make it through

The sweetest offer
in your compromise is the platform of your fall
Too blind to see the higher grounds
We're trapped in empty shells
Hesitation will persist unless you slay your shameless ego
The enemy will not retreat
Reclaim your chosen path

The roaring thunder quakes your heart
The burning fire ignites inside
In defiance, your might defined
The contender shall arise
The bitter taste of gushing blood
And before their gaze you had to kneel
In defiance, your might defined
The contender shall prevail

Further into the inferno, the body extricates
Nobody stretched
Stretched out their hands
In your time of contest, they turned their heads
Your thoughts are gnawing on your mind
Drowned in a sea of false prophets

Conformity will befoul your determination
You'll never find your true self
If you won't defy the laws and physics of this world

Begin the eternal evolution
Head on to the edge of your destiny
Put out the flame of ignorance
This confining abyss will forever become your shadow,
entrap you in its walls
5. Misery Injection (4:54)
Caught in the gaze of the divine minds
The proponents of these ancient shackles
Draining your vein with endless pariah
These manipulative, malicious vampires

Negligence bred econocide
Conglomerate sweat shop goods are feeding your masters
Yet we can never make a stand
And follow blindly, their promises of wealth

In the halls of our idolized forefathers
The breeding ground for them to justify their rights to rule
Passing worn-out judgment unto others
The sole mechanism in which their poisoned words are brewed

Why do we mute ourselves?
To simply extend the seconds of our lives?
Which only amount to lack of serenity?

Silence won’t free you
Blend with those who knelt down
All your life, you can’t see through
The great wall of deception

Caught in the gaze of the divine minds
There’s no more escape, forget all you’ve tried
The age of self-made man is all but gone
And in your broken shelter, you mourn

A line of shameless thieves
In desperation, they chose greed over creed
Whose atrocity, still marked in those who serve

Dreams lost in servitude unto the blackened hearts
Benighted souls swamped in hunger for rapture

What if I said that our memories are not our own?
Welcome to the dimension savage
Where we lay dead
What if I said that I won’t belong, use a language of my own?
We are not parts of the vicious circle
Feel your anger rise, demolish this hell

They once told me
“We are the liberty, we will not become subjugated”
What of the agonists, where do they rest their heads?
If their tales become the remnants of the past

Somewhere, far away from here
Would we care to turn ourselves around?
Beyond the borders that captivate our

Nationality’s a guise to make the meek oblige
On which the true demons fester and age
Your right to serve is a fading mirage

Silence will not free you
Where is your voice, once so bold?

Silence won’t free you
Blend with those who knelt down
All your life, you can’t see through
The great wall of deception
6. God Idolatry (2016 ver.) (5:04)
Raise your hands above the bidding for deceptive day has hence arrived
No logic nor sanity nor flame of ardor
A false compassion born

The day they came abroad, an intervention
“Save the spirits, embrace the hearts
of ones who could never take a stand”
A lie so delicate tears my inside out
Was it you who'll be the savior of us all?

Salvation is a product
Its false methods, prevalent in serpent's mouth
Let the guilty feed on the innocent
The fabricated scriptures possess the mass population
When you realize the falsehoods, it's too late

But still you pray, repent and sacrifice
Degrade your own flesh and blood
A world of charlatans and slaves
Keep running around in circles
Worship one who’ll make you bleed

He wears the hide of a beast
The one who abandoned his blood kin,
The merciful and the divine?
Tattered knees and blood strained eyes
Caught in your own suffering
But no one hears your dying scream

But still you pray, repent and sacrifice
Degrade your own flesh and blood
A world of charlatans and slaves
Keep running around in circles
Worship one who’ll make you...

...The blessed marks of sins in the name of my father
And the return of the one turns the tide against us...

Destroy what shall not be shattered
I’ll risk another downfall for a greater leap

And so the sky turned ablaze

As I tread through the temple of ancient guilt,
reflecting the past
Sought not the clarity, guiding enlightenment
Decadence, wrong persistence
Awaiting the hour when fools shall be drowned
Beneath the warm lights lies a colossal failure
The tyranny rise again
Sworn freedom back in our hands

He shall tremble, shake again no more
His presence replaced with burning human will

This is a grand awakening
For those who feed on the poisonous offering

I will not become a slave to a lie
I will not become a tool in this game
7. Revive in Fire (5:30)
The thrust of right
Stand firm against authority
In this world I gave up caring for
I found myself in the eye of the storm

You will be condemned
By those conquered by their geed
Express your suffering
Their blinded eyes cannot trace you here

Doubt or silence, the unspoken rite
Questioning your royalty
Submerged in faithless apathy
Still drunk on feast of the fallen kings
The corruption, I can feel it spread
In my vein as I seek my way
On this map, I will paint your horrors
The vivid nightmare of my world

Will you set fire on this field of endless rain,
Or can you serve and become your own savior?
Still unable to make another move
Deterred by this pointless war

Flesh torn and scorched
An everlasting curse

And when you feel your world collapse
The pressure, it lets you make your stand
Why turn your back on all you've sowed?
Don't hide your shame, confined in failure's gaze

Let your apprehension feed

To not have wasted
Any sense we left behind
They watch as your desire fade

Life or death, no certain odds
We move unseen through our impaired sensors
The constellations of
the prophets never showed me the path
Running scared with blackened eyes
With blackened eyes, over the wall
The balance is lost
Now can you triumph over
the force of the system or invent your own?

And when you feel your world collapse
The pressure, it lets you make your stand
Why turn your back on all you've sowed?
Don't hide your shame, confined in failure's gaze

You thought the cold put out your fire
But I'm the harbinger
I am the source of my pain
The aftermath of the bygone days
They lead my way
Light the torch anew

We pray that the gods guide ourselves, save ourselves
But in turn we have crossed out all the truth

Never realized the mistakes that I've made
Never yearned for more or never less

The gods dictate
The fate is in their hands
Four words of lies
The man will serve, the man will serve
The gods dictate
That you must serve as if slaves will serve
But we know we're creators

We have come to doubt the sacrament of masters
The lesson learned in two eternal enemies
Identify the unfolding of true nemesis
Transcendence of the souls
to the higher place of the divine

And when you feel your world collapse
The pressure, it lets you make your stand
Why turn your back on all you've sowed?
Don't hide your shame, confined in failure's gaze

You thought the cold put out your fire
But I'm the harbinger
I am the source of my pain
The aftermath of the bygone days
They lead my way
Light the torch a new
8. Answer Beyond (2016 ver.) (4:31)
The cycle breaks now
Endless waste

Those who failed, those who lied
Those who won, severed more
Why chase this absolution?
Life began with self-perfection
Living lies, thousands more
Clarify and redefine
So the plague is iron-wrought
Not stopping, aiming for your life

We've witnessed potentials but all has gone to waste
Already regress is calling
We've accomplished nothing because we can't accept
What use have us now?
As weak as a worm

To symbolize your weakness, pain shows itself
Humiliated body
Soul forged in fake

We’ve come so far away in our conquest
Extending new horizons to find
ourselves in our coffins, laid to rest
This earthly boundary you try to crack and master
But in the end pulling our disaster ever faster

Who will care, when you share
That you bare the same old scare
And history never began without its error

But in the end pulling our disaster ever faster

We’ve come so far away in our conquest
Extending new horizons
to find ourselves in our coffins, laid to rest
This earthly boundary you try to crack and master
Until you find out that
our flaws are meant to be, meant to be

Even as saints, we cannot hide
The limitations we’re born with
Repeating same mistakes again
That’s given birth by our folly

They're ringing in your ears
The whispers, blessed with vile lies
Turned against their masters
Lies you have grown and fed
Mind you gave subject and strength

We’ve come so far away in our conquest
Extending new horizons
to find ourselves in our coffins, laid to rest
This earthly boundary you try to crack and master
But in the end pulling our disaster ever faster

Even as saints, we cannot hide
The limitations we’re born with

As the lord of creation we failed our only home

We’ve come so far
We’ve reached the end of the path in sight
Can you see through the disguise?
This is the answer beyond
9. Shadow Walk (5:17)
Digging deeper into the uncharted soil
Made no trail of the past that only left spoil
Followed only the unguided scent of my stride
A celebration of the fools
And those who will not make or
try an effort to make something count
Rather live in the shadow of someone less
Someone less than all you could be

All of those words
Which promise did they serve?
And through all the self-defense have you found trust?
So long we have seen
But never cared to live
Drifting under the gravity of apathy

The most sickening thoughts
are always found in one's realm
To deny is to never be one with your name

More voices will bring us down
Like in torrential rain, you will drown
All of those once friendly faces
Nothing more than the ghosts of the past

Revel in the pretentious chains of humanity
A fragile chemistry
Domesticated in design
Not giving a second thought
to question or to carry forth
Cause we all walk alone
We are the shadow walk

False hallucinations are what they are
Exposing your darkest thoughts
An attempt in vain to try and fix the frame
In pursuit of the misguiding flame

The change in state of their minds
They push you away
Tattered through
the howling storm you try to sway
The voice echoes in your head
(You have no more left to give in)
When you are knocked on the floor
The ocean beckons, inside you drown
(Solemnly puts you in your sleep)

Your hollow shadow is all you have

To the burning sun
you raise your sacrament of uselessness
Only you can realize for
unto their schemes it leads downward

More voices will bring us down
All of those once friendly faces
Nothing more than the ghosts of the past

But we all pray
Revel in the pretentious chains of humanity
A fragile chemistry
Domesticated in design
Not giving a second thought
to question or to carry forth
Cause we all walk alone
We are the shadow walk

Will you succumb to ones that will let you down?
No we don't give a second
thought to question or to carry forth
Cause we all walk alone
We are the shadow walk

This journey with you and me
Who scores the highest is up to your move
