The Winter of Our Discontent Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Beyond Forgiveness (2:20)
Within the stench of the burning air
Comes the conclusion of having gone too far
Fading away is the concept of terror
To withdraw from the human mind forever

Beyond forgiveness - Reflecting distortion
Absolute silence - No need for remorse
Gathering darkness will shelter my soul
Returning to origin - Man's own black hole

Decades of errors were filled with selfish torment
Decades of horror as the continents were burning
Insanity is hidden under above's holy grace
It forces the mighty for the weak ones to trace

All laughter and sorrow is sure to be vanished
Now there's space after everyone is punished
In my consciousness deep feelings of shame
Will I take them with me forever to remain?

Beyond forgiveness - Twisting expulsion
Absolute silence - Too late for remorse
Gathering darkness is spreading out cold
Returning to origin - Man's own black hole.
2. Damned to Extinction (2:49)
The terrible noise of machine-gun fire
Destroys the arctic silence
A new generation of high-tech assassins
Follows the footsteps of their ancestors
Stranded to kill without remorse
Cruel slaughter goes on
This world has been haunted uncountless times
Our history of bloodshed does proof

The end has come through a burst of storms
We're damned to extinction, the guilty will burn

Existence is worthless on our march into doom
Man's fate was buried long ago
Driven by a martial, perverted desire
The individual doesn't belong here anymore
The environmental overkill has reached a new dimension
Through the last pale century
The crusade leads to the final entombment
Nothing will be forgiven

Mankind drifts into the forthcoming chaos
Unknown of the horrible truth
The abolished instincts gather strength
And invert the civilisation
The balance of power is lost
Without prospect to hide the default
Under the sentence of death
We'll welcome the funeral exhaustion...
3. The Shape of the Enemy (4:42)
While walking through the corridors of power
Beware of delusions that only drag you down
You serve a system built on intrigues and cheat
Maybe there's no way to escape your own defeat

Can you still see the shape of the enemy?
As you sink deeper and deeper in sin and misery
you wished for a shining return of the empire
Fate has not decided yet, will it all end in fire?

The omens were there - you failed to see
New allies add to the list of fatalities
Unable to recognize you're just a part of something greater
A new age is coming, hard to accept your role as a puppet

Can you still see the shape of the enemy?
Your shame goes hand in hand with sin and misery
Glory you wanted, for a conquering empire
Fate has not decided yet, will it all end in fire?

Why is there a monster on the throne?
You put it there, now terror of silence reigns all alone
May this loneliness fade away from your personal dome
Sometimes even shadows can guide us the way home...

Can you still see the shape of the enemy?
As you sink deeper and deeper in sin and misery
Pain is all you received for the beloved empire
Fate has not decided yet, will it all ends in fire?
4. Warzones (4:42)
The emanation of destruction goes on
Fortune is buried under walls
What is left behind our lives
Are the ruins of a global starvation

The result of a deadly ecology
Reverses the order of things
Nothing will prevent the age of chaos
And the premonition won't be heard

War zones - Under a burning sun
War zones - The recapture of nature begins

The recreant still try to ignore
The forthcoming downfall of a crumbling earth
Oceans filled with blackened poison
Now rivers of blood run cold

Ashes bombard the hallowed ground
Detonations burn the dirty air
Apocalypse progress towards completion
Unloaded dust raids through awesome fires

War zones - Under a burning sun
War zones - Fall into the flames of anguish

Within the everlasting silence
The dreadful claims for the crown
When anything that had ever existed
Lies trembling on the burned ground...
5. Drowned in Blackness (1:42)
Fragments of the past are covered by the sands of time
Innocence is lost again, the path of peace is left behind
Distorted, enraged voices
they vanished from all our twisted minds

Are these decades of fear and hate the answer to our own seclusion?
The written word has turned to dust only to rise again
Now the great eclipse is here and falls over the cold wasteland

Segments of the future are hidden by the clouds of shame
We've followed absurd dreams, be sure that you're awake now
Distorted, enraged voices
Are never to be heard around here no more.
6. Devastation of Silent Resistance (7:48)
Follow the journey up the stream of madness
Enter a world of misty and unbalanced tragic
Leave behind your certain, miserable existence
And sagacity will greet you in the cruellest of forms

Witness the jungle fall to pieces
Man's mind is lacerated and disintegrated
Discord with one's inner self
Leads to extreme defence mechanisms

Out here the hunger for divinity dwells
It's so "goddamn" easy to get carried away
Reciting poems of a twisted, worn out mind
While the dissolution crawls up all of their awaiting necks

Witness the apocalypse here and now
The stench of decay is already filling the air
Discord with one's inner self
Leads to devastation of silent resistance

Devastation of silent resistance
Devastation of silent resistance

Follow the journey up the stream of madness
Enter a world of misty and unbalanced tragic
Leave behind your certain, miserable existence
And sagacity will greet you in the cruellest of forms.
7. Under the Wings of the Cross (3:39)
Follow the journey up the stream of madness
Enter a world of misty and unbalanced tragic
Leave behind your certain, miserable existence
And sagacity will greet you in the cruellest of forms

Witness the jungle fall to pieces
Man's mind is lacerated and disintegrated
Discord with one's inner self
Leads to extreme defence mechanisms

Out here the hunger for divinity dwells
It's so "goddamn" easy to get carried away
Reciting poems of a twisted, worn out mind
While the dissolution crawls up all of their awaiting necks

Witness the apocalypse here and now
The stench of decay is already filling the air
Discord with one's inner self
Leads to devastation of silent resistance

Devastation of silent resistance
Devastation of silent resistance

Follow the journey up the stream of madness
Enter a world of misty and unbalanced tragic
Leave behind your certain, miserable existence
And sagacity will greet you in the cruellest of forms.
8. Imposters for All Time (3:29)
We carry the disguised gift throughout the centuries
Leaving behind a trail of tears and shame
Through decaying souls that long for flesh and youth
We're bound to stare into the abyss of our minds

They are importers for all times
Gone now, amused by our struggle
They were strategic leaders
And I can see their grinning faces

Some fools they were to charish us with such novelty
Or were they masters of invention, imposers for all times?
It's too late to lay it down, this instrument of danger
Used in (the) dark ages; can you hear their distant laughter?

On the turn of another era, will it be our last?
And if it's so, you can be sure that they've done their best
Some day the race of leeches will only be a memory
With all its arrogance, wiped out for good, wouldn't you agree?
9. The Void Inside the Darkness (3:25)
Welcome to the new age of terror
Hatred's here like you've never seen before
The madness has settled over to stay
What we can't stand, we kill anything that's in our way

Decadence defines the existent chaos
Trapped are we with ruthless servants
The image in the mirror is weakened
Watch as life in every form is cheapened

Emotions are frozen in the blink of an eye
The sky has to burn, I forgot the reason why...
My memories are fading, what started this insanity?
Walk with me through the forest of morality

We've passed the chapter of chaos just this second
Silence outside - I'd like to dwell in this moment
When emptiness is your long-time companion
You lose yourself in everlasting oblivion...
10. The Winter of Our Discontent (2:26)
A whispering wind blows mournful over the scorched plains
Unnoticed by the ignorant masses the end has begun
Will the praised new leader be as foolish as his precursor
And will he gather total mischief around him to spread out?

Let this winter of our discontent be over
Finish the cruelty and embrace another day
will we stay or are we condemned to fall?

A long awaited decision is about to be pronounced
Fate has been stressed for an awful long time
The judge of dusk stays back in preposterous rapture
He nourishes himself from solitude he likes to share

The whispering wind swells to a grinding roar
For the final battle they start to prepare
All hopes are torn apart by grim morbidity
The path to "hell" is paved with so many bad intentions

The winter of our discontent will never be over
Embrace the cruelty, let this be the last day
I want to fall, and you will too...
