The Year the Sun Died Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Arise and Purify (4:13)
“In the beginning there was nothing to give humanity hope, and then she was born...
As she ascended into power, her words, her messages became legend... as did her visions of the death of our sun...”

We are unchanged, we are forgotten
Born of the blessed and the sick, we are the rotten ones
Trust in me and all your sorrows
Count your blessings, die tomorrow

Arise and purify
Subjugate and justify
Erase and adjudicate
Leader of the masses
Free the storm

They are the strange within the fallen
Born of the lecherous and sick, the plague is calling
Mind the rules that can't be broken
Through hollow days and words unspoken

Arise and purify
Subjugate and justify
Erase and adjudicate
Leader of the masses
Free the proles

Arise and purify
Subjugate and justify
Erase and adjudicate
Leader of the masses
Free the storm

Arise and purify
Subjugate and justify
Erase and adjudicate
Leader of the masses
Free the Proles

Arise, purify
Arise, purify
Arise, purify
2. Let the Serpent Follow Me (4:46)
“As she stood atop the mountain the serpents began their agenda... as they surround her, treasuring her embrace”

So the word came from above, all of us shall burn
Sewn of ash and circumstance, victims never learn

Judgment comes and judgment swift purifies the herd
Thinning out the weak and vain, hypocrites and bastards

Revelation is so surreal, let the serpent follow me

In the end no flesh remains, only bitter words
Glorify the ignorant, the murderous detractors

Revelation is so surreal, let the serpent follow me
Realization is what you need, let the serpent follow me

Edging closer, closer to the end of time
Blindly follow; the leader will provide for all mankind

Revelation is so surreal, let the serpent follow me
Realization is what you need, let the serpent follow me

This is the final suture, this is the curtain call
No want for happy endings, our backs against the wall
Make me whole again, glorify original sin
3. Exitium (Anthem of the Living) (4:52)
“The ruin and decay had begun.
The children, the soldiers made of clay gathered at her knees”

Exitium bring us peace within the ruin
Grant us this release
Our tongues are falling away

We are the chosen children
Soldiers turn to clay
Gone are the golden wings of gossamer
And the circumstance of decay

We cry for sweet Lenore
Gone away
Shall I slam the door
Or is this the beginning?

Bold are the brazen drones that mold and violate
Change is the unattained
The goal we seek has withered alone and afraid

We cry and plead for war
Gone astray
Man's greed has damned us all
The anthem of the living

Lenore has been chosen
She is the leader
We shall follow her blindly
But beware the rabbit hole is deep

We cry for sweet Lenore
Gone away
Shall I slam the door?
Withered alone and afraid

We cry and plead for war
Gone astray
Man's greed has damned us all
The anthem of the living

This is the ending of all time
This is our exitium
These are our last words, our last songs
This is our swansong
I am the last revolution
Turn me backward and bastardize me
4. Question Existence Fading (4:20)
“As the sun began its slow beautiful fade, the false prophets questioned her visions and the code within her blood”

Plague decimation of the day, this world slides into decay
No voice in silence, walk in streaks unknown
Evidence is clear, revolution of the meek is near
Blood code and god are gone, this is the last song

Burn out the days, burn out the sun
Question the only reason
Black are the dregs humanity slays
Question existence fading

Alone we walk the hollow hills
Contempt has breached our sense of will
Take blood but not my soul, some ground is hallowed
Dominate the weak among the damned
Bring truth to the sons of man
Count to ten and see your fate and fall into disgrace

Burn out the days, burn out the sun
Question the only reason
Black are the dregs humanity slays
Question existence fading

The reprehension of cold redemption is gone
This alienation song brings us further
To the truth and the games
We fall into the blame and we fail once again

Burn out the days, burn out the sun
Question the only reason
Black are the dregs humanity slays
Question existence fading

Can you solve the blood code?
Can you solve the code?
Can you solve the blood code?
5. I Am Low (5:15)
“Depression set in among the proles.
They began to sing in quiet tones building into a maelstrom”

I am low tonight and the truth is the same
Out in grey tomorrow within this brief space of elegance
I am low

The creator seems bitter and strange
If we pray through these hopeless and endless days
Will Morpheus take us far away?
When nothing is clear, there is nothing to fear
There is nothing left to follow
When contradiction has killed all our hope
There is nothing between me and the end of a rope

I am high today, but I still feel the shame
If I fly tomorrow, will anyone remember my worthless name?
If we conquer the years and fight through the tears
There is nothing that can stand in our way
Nothing can stand in our way
And nothing can make the world go away
Nothing can stand in our way, in our way

Nothing can stand in our way
And nothing can make the world go away
Nothing can stand in our way, in our way

Make the time to feel alone again
The river flows and the world is so low
6. Frozen (5:46)
“It was told that conviction never dies, yet there was a sense of numbness and loss of emotion”

Look at my face and fall away bleeding black decision
I am the one unfortunate son knee deep in division
Look at my face, stare in my eyes, witness what never dies
Crave indifference my own
System enslaved and stoned

Fractured and burned the world is turned
The arrogant feed the fascists
Hate is front page stacked in their graves
Disposable lives have vanished
I've made indifference my own

System enslaved and stoned

If everything is frozen, nothing feels the same
If the martyr is the chosen, welcome to the hollow game

Look at my faith and count the days
The opulent train, the tragic
Torture reborn through hate and scorn
In arrogant ways impassive
Look at my face, stare in my eyes, witness what never dies
Crave indifference my own
System enslaved and stoned

If everything is frozen, nothing feels the same
If the martyr is the chosen, welcome to the hollow game

If everything is frozen, nothing feels the same
If the martyr is the chosen, welcome to the hollow game
If everything is frozen, only gods can feel the shame
If the circle is unbroken, welcome to the hollow game
7. One Final Day (Sworn to Believe) (3:30)
“The message of doom had come to fruition, and she commanded the soldiers to preach her words”

Don't fear the right from wrong, don't fear the final song
Only the distant echoes, our past mistakes
Lenore bleeds for our sins
Time ticks, the world spins
Only to see the answers slipping through our hands and trickle down

Sworn to believe
To feast on purity
Sworn to believe

Sworn to believe
To feast on purity
Sworn to believe

The prophet said unto her sheep
“A lesson learned is a lesson deep”
If only all earth's creatures could understand this game
Forget your troubles and follow me
Take time to forgive with sympathy
Only then will you see the end is nothing more than fate and troubling pain

Sworn to believe, deny and deceive
And pray to your god, the sun
8. The World Is Wired (5:08)
“The rise of technology was blamed for many things.
The seers had been blinded by something unknown.
The power had become uncontrollable.”

What am I supposed to be? Is this the trial?
Self-deprecation leads to denial
Can you hear the message overplayed
As they hide behind the sun?
Can you feel the future preordained
For time waits for no man

What are we supposed to think when the world is wired?
How are we supposed to feel when we fall in the fire?
Can you hear the message overplayed
As they hide behind the sun?
Can you feel the future preordained
For time waits for no man

Here we are again within this conundrum
Bathed in a blanket of light
Some say there is truth here
And the only chosen seers are blind
Bathed in a blanket of light

What am I supposed to be? Is this the trial?
Self-deprecation leads to denial
Can you hear the message overplayed
As they hide behind the sun?
Can you feel the future preordained
For time waits for no man

Here we are again within this conundrum
Bathed in a blanket of light
Some say there is truth here
And the only chosen seers are blind
Bathed in a blanket of light
9. The Dying Age (4:52)
“When the kings of foreign lands begin the rise of fear they went into hiding. In the shadows they did conspire.”

This is the dying age,
This is controlled restraint
This is the future shock as we become hollow
This is the dying wave that brings a new tomorrow

This is the falling rain,
These are the broken days
I spend my life of confusion in pain
As if to make the lunatic look sane

Kings afraid of guillotines,
Cower in the shadows
As they bring the faithful from theirs knees
To exterminate their power

This is the frozen phase,
This is a chosen rage
Hoping that the wounds will fester and drain
Hoping in our present state of pure disdain

Kings afraid of guillotines,
Cower in the shadows
As they bring the faithful from theirs knees
To exterminate their power
10. Ad Vitam Aeternam (1:30)
[Instrumental]

“If life is truly eternal none of us can be forgotten”
11. The Year the Sun Died (5:33)
“Contempt and defiance brought the haze.
Truly the sun was dying.
Deliverance came like a stark shadow for some, slowly, twisting.”

Contemptus saeculi
Contemptus saeculi

We've reached the final days
We tread the light of nothingness
In fractured existence, we praise the light that still remains

We have reached the final war
Beaten heads broken against the wall forevermore
Was it worth the violence? Was it worth the cause?
Was it worth the inevitable changing of the guard?

What if there is nothing more?
What if there is only emptiness?
What if there is nothing more
beyond the code of deliverance?
What if everything decays?
What if we've all just been betrayed?
The code of deliverance leads us closer
We are closer to the end

Defiant ones defend their sins
While the sun is collapsing
The world is on a diving spin to this infernal holocaust
Was it worth the consequence?
For we have angered the gods
Our broken dreams and silent screams
Shall never be felt, shall never be heard

What if there was nothing more?
What if there is only emptiness?
What if there is nothing more
beyond the code of deliverance?
What if everything decays?
What if we've all just been betrayed?
The code of deliverance leads us closer
12. Waiting for the Sun (The Doors cover) (3:48)
[originally by The Doors]

At first flash of Eden
We race down to the sea
Standing there on freedom's shore

Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun

Can you feel it
Now that Spring has come
That it's time to live in the scattered sun

Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun.
Waiting for the sun
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

Waiting for you to come along
Waiting for you to hear my song
Waiting for you to come along
Waiting for you to tell me what went wrong

This is the strangest life I've ever known
[scream]

Can you feel it
Now that Spring has come
That it's time to live in the scattered sun.

Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
Waiting for the sun
