Mark of the Blade Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. The Void (4:08)
Grinding again, we're the legion of the south.
Another year with our name in your mouth.
I know how it feels to hate everything,
and feel like you're alone.

I am here with you!
Just close your eyes and listen to my voice.
Spill your thoughts inside of me,
they'll vanish in the void.

No one can feel what we feel,
this is family!
Just let them burn in the fire,
that we've set on the world.

Close your eyes,
and follow the sound of my voice!

Close your eyes,
and follow the sound of my voice!
Close your eyes!

We are the void,
where the pain is obsolete.
You don't have to feel a thing,
or think that life is not complete.

We are the void,
just let go and free your mind.
Come with us into eternity,
and leave the rest to die.

One more fucking time!

Never again will I be on this earth,
float with me into the void and witness rebirth.
The overwhelming beauty takes the air from your lungs.
Time doesn't exist, we'll stay forever young.

When you think you're lost,
close your eyes and follow the sound of my voice!

Close your eyes,
and follow the sound of my voice!
Close your eyes!

We are the void,
where the pain is obsolete.
You don't have to feel a thing,
or think that life is not complete.

We are the void,
just let go and free your mind.
Come with us into eternity,
and leave the rest to die.

We are the void,
you don't have to live a lie.
Be yourself and nothing less!
Take my hand and we'll watch the world burn from the sky!

Take my hand and we'll watch the world burn.
And be where we're supposed to be!
Take my hand and we'll watch the world burn from the sky!


Take my hand, watch the world burn.
2. Mark of the Blade (2:54)
I know you can feel it, let it in!
People will still hate you in the end.

So hate back, plan the attack,
then they'll realize they can't crack,
the mind of a fucking maniac.

The voice inside you always wins,
your graves been dug so lie in it!
And commit until the end for your dear old friend,
and I promise that amends will meet at the end.

Why can't I be anything without you?
Because the scars will fade and you'll never age,
when you give your life to the mark of the blade.

The cold grasp of the past still haunts me!
I will erase everything,
if you give your life to the mark of the blade.

You can come with me or you can stay and grow old,
and let the universe swallow your rotting soul.
Turn a blind eye to everything,
or take a chance to be blind to model ignorance.

The voice inside you never quits,
it'll haunt you until your dying breath.
So breathe in and breathe out, reach deep within.
I promise that amends will meet at the end.

Why can't I be anything without you?
Because the scars will fade and you'll never age,
when you give your life to the mark of the blade.

The cold grasp of the past still haunts me!
I will erase everything,
if you give your life to the mark of the blade.

Give your life to the mark of the blade,
I'll take your name beyond the grave.
Give your life to the mark of the blade.
Give your life to the mark of the blade.

I bleed the blood that is cut from the blade,
I bear the mark and I won't be a slave.
Come with me and be saved!

Why can't I be anything without you?
Because the scars will fade and you'll never age,
when you give your life to the mark of the blade.

The cold grasp of the past still haunts me!
I will erase everything,
if you give your life to the mark of the blade.
3. Elitist Ones (4:37)
It took a long time to realize and admit,
that our words don't mean a thing.
So keep talking your shit!

How can we honestly live in fear,
when everyone will die in a hundred years?

Respect, trust and loyalty!
I've gave it out and I've taken it too.
But what's the point when everyone,
will secretly think they're better than you?

This is what we have become,
a self absorbed population of scum.
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun.
God damn the elitist ones!

This is what we have become,
a self absorbed population of scum.
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun.
God damn the elitist ones!

This is what we have become!

I've seen it all, there's nothing I haven't heard.
Just stay at home and remain a coward,
and swallow down that salt in your mouth.
Because nobody gives a fuck what comes out.

Respect, trust and loyalty!
I've gave it out and I've taken it too.
But what's the point when everyone,
will secretly think they're better than you?

This is what we have become,
a self absorbed population of scum.
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun.
God damn the elitist ones!

This is what we have become,
a self absorbed population of scum.
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun.
God damn the elitist ones!

One day we'll all regret the things we've said.
From here on out don't open your mouth,
show some fucking respect!

Show some fucking respect, Karma will come for your neck.
I've run out of patience for so called elitists!
Show some fucking respect, Karma will come for your neck.
I've run out of patience for so called elitists!

Respect, trust and loyalty!
I've gave it out and I've taken it too.
But what's the point when everyone,
will secretly think they're better than you?

This is what we have become,
a self absorbed population of scum.
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun.
God damn the elitist ones!

This is what we have become,
a self absorbed population of scum.
The vision of the future is like staring at the sun.
God damn the elitist ones!

This is what we have become.
God damn the elitist ones!
This is what we have become.
God damn the elitist ones!
4. Bring Me Home (4:48)
I close my eyes and count to ten.
The seconds turn to years and slowly,
I've been recognizing everything.
Through an adolescent mind, it's so dark here.

It's so dark here!
It's so dark here!

For the first time I feel alive,
but you're not here!

Life, it changes!
Wake me up and bring me home.
Let me stay here forever!

I can't see a thing, I'm lying in my bed,
I can't stop thinking.
It's driving me insane, never got to say goodbye.
It's still dark here.

For the first time I feel alive,
but you're not here!

Life, it changes!
Wake me up and bring me home.
Let me stay here forever!

I'll live on and carry your name,
and be what you always thought I could be.
I hope we meet at the end,
but I'll never forgive the world for taking my best friend.

I can't see a thing!
I can't feel a thing...
5. Tremors (4:20)
I bet you won’t have much to say,
when a sledgehammer rares back and busts you in your face.
Pop another pill, pretend you’re not fake.
Come to think of it, maybe your life’s a mistake.

Don’t breathe, don’t speak.
I need a moment to think what you would be without me.
You are the bane of everything,
nothing will ever be the same.

Don’t think that you’re better off now,
or you have a clean slate.
How can you sleep at night?
When the earth shakes, just self-medicate.

Don’t think that you’re better off now,
or you have a clean slate.
How can you sleep at night?
When the earth shakes, just self-medicate.

Two thousand miles away!
Even I can feel the earth shake when you say,
that everything will be okay.

There’s nothing left, we’re facing death.
And you still can’t admit,
that everything won’t be okay.

They will say it’s lonely at the top,
but it’s a nightmare at the bottom.
They’ll never stop to think or feel.

Don’t tell me you’re alone!
When I’m lying here dying,
at the foot of their throne.

Misguide me, mislead me!
Take me away from everyone that needs me.
I’m drowning, I’m dying and you still won’t reach me.

Don’t think that you’re better off now,
or you have a clean slate.
How can you sleep at night?
When the earth shakes, just self-medicate.

I’m drowning, I’m dying,
and you still won’t reach me.
I’m drowning, I’m dying,
I’m on my final breath and you still won’t reach!

Two thousand miles away!
Even I can feel the earth shake when you say,
that everything will be okay.

There’s nothing left, we’re facing death.
And you still can’t admit,
that everything won’t be okay.

If I die, you’re coming with me!
They say it’s euphoric anyway.
Speak my name and feel the earth shake!

Feel the earth shake!
6. A Killing Industry (4:04)
It’s been a decade!
What the fuck makes you think,
that my mind is the same?
Because it’s time for a change!

This is evolution not a solution,
to seek out fortune or fame.

I would rather kill myself,
than to live my life for someone else.
I would rather burn in Hell,
than to give my soul to sell.

I would rather kill myself,
than to live my life for someone else.
I would rather burn in Hell,
than to give my soul to sell.

The pressure builds,
I’m only hanging by a thread.
It’s like I’ve got a gun to my head!

This industry is killing me!
How many people do I have to please?
I’ll just stay in this rut,
because it’s easier to just not give a fuck.

This industry is killing me!
I don’t have anymore blood left to bleed.
It doesn’t matter how deep you cut,
because it’s easier to just not give a fuck.

I just don't give a fuck!

I would rather kill myself,
than to live my life for someone else.
I would rather burn in Hell,
than to give my soul to sell.

The pressure builds,
I’m only hanging by a thread.
It’s like I’ve got a gun to my head!

I’m just trying to help you realize,
that no matter what everything will die.
I’ve worked my whole life, this wasn’t luck.
Talk all you want because I don’t give a fuck.

I don’t give a fuck!

I don’t owe a thing to you or anyone.
Trust me when I say,
that I couldn’t care less if you were dead.

I don’t owe a thing to you or anyone.
Trust me when I say,
that I couldn’t care less if you were dead.

This industry is killing me!
How many people do I have to please?
I’ll just stay in this rut,
because it’s easier to just not give a fuck.

This industry is killing me!
I don’t have anymore blood left to bleed.
It doesn’t matter how deep you cut,
because it’s easier to just not give a fuck.

This industry will never be,
a place of peace and clarity.
I’ll just stay in this rut,
because it’s easier to just not give a fuck.

I just don't give a fuck!
I just don't give a fuck!
7. Tormented (4:14)
The cold air hits my lungs,
all is silent.
I can’t stop biting my tongue,
I feel so violent.

They say that I’m nothing,
That I am better off dead.
They’re right in my head!

But I won’t leave this earth without theirs.
I hate the man you’ve made me become.

Take responsibility,
when it’s the innocent one’s turn to bleed.
What you call normality is everything I want to be.

Fuck the world, I don’t care anymore!
All I wanted was a friend, not to be ignored.
I know where you lay your head.
It’s with the rest of the ones in my basement.

Fuck the world, I don’t care anymore!

Shut me down, shut me out,
now that the tables have turned.
Please tell me how does it feel,
that everyone you know and love will be killed.

Shut me down, shut me out,
now that everyone’s dead.
Please tell me how does it feel,
that everyone you know and love has been killed.

Everything I am is everything I hate.
Because of you, because of you!
I am everything I hate!

When will people learn,
that their words create a flame that burns forever?
You’ve created a monster!
It’s growing stronger, we won’t be alive much longer.

Forget the future, the past has come back.
So take a moment to hope you’re forgiven.
I doubt that you reap what you sow, you pay what you owe.
And unfortunately for you it’s your soul.

Fuck the world, I don’t care anymore!
All I wanted was a friend, not to be ignored.
I know where you lay your head.
It’s with the rest of the ones in my basement.

Fuck the world, I don’t care anymore!

Shut me down, shut me out,
now that the tables have turned.
Please tell me how does it feel,
that everyone you know and love will be killed.

Shut me down, shut me out,
now that everyone’s dead.
Please tell me how does it feel,
that everyone you know and love has been killed.

9. Dwell in the Shadows (4:01)
I dwell in the shadows of a past life!
And I welcome you to try to pull my thoughts to the outside.
Introverted, am I supposed to be a man that doesn’t hold it back.
I don’t need the spotlight, all I need is to be the man I know I am

I dwell in the shadows of a past life!
And I never thought my words,
would change the lives of the mentally disturbed.
It’s insane to me, I help lyrically.
It seems, you’re more fucked up than me!

But that’s who we are!
Mass produced psychos with a million scars.
That’s who we will be and you’re the ones that made me.

Don’t ever change!
We are who we are and it should remain the same.
If you don’t want to dwell in the light,
then dwell in the shadows with me.

Dwell in the shadows with me!
Dwell in the shadows with me!

I am a ghost!
They never see the side I hate the most.
Blackened by the outside,
I’m fighting a rising tide.

I’m not afraid!
This is the part of my life that has made me who I am,
and what I am is a tortured soul helping them to see the light.
I am a voice for the people to relate to my hate.
But I’ll always dwell in the shadows until you call for me.

They will call us evil, forever they’ll shun.
But just call my name and I’ll take their tongues.
This blade cuts deeper than flesh.
It cuts down to the soul, as we dwell in the shadows.

I am your voice for them to hear.
I am your thoughts, I am your fears.
We are one and we are all,
as we dwell in the shadows.

I never thought I could hold on,
or help anyone to get out of the darkness,
and stop them from a suicide!

I know when you’re lost it’s hard to find any peace for your mind.
Let me be your voice and hold the balance of mankind.
May we all find our way and stop us from self-destructing.
If that day still comes, I’ll die the man I always was.

Don’t ever change!
We are who we are and it should remain the same.
If you don’t want to dwell in the light,
then dwell in the shadows with me.

Dwell in the shadows with me!
If you don’t want to dwell in the light,
then dwell in the shadows with me.
10. Venomous (4:24)
Hypnotized, the serpent’s eyes.
Draw me to the venomous lies!
Take me down the path of failure,
and to my imminent demise.

Ice is flowing through its veins,
and his touch gives me a frozen heart.

Paralyzed!

In his eyes I can see the hypocrisy,
and his noxious grin convinces me,
that I’ll get what I need so he plants the seed.
And immediately, I feel invincibility,
but it can’t be real, it doesn’t make sense,
that I can feel so incomplete!

What you have done?
I can’t move but I feel like I am free.
There’s blood everywhere!
I’m losing my mind, this isn’t me.

This venom flowing through my veins,
has set me free but I’m still wrapped in chains.
Emotions are true, the words are fake.
I’ve been paralyzed be this venomous snake.

This venom flowing through my veins,
consumes my soul but it takes away the pain.
Emotions are true, the words are fake.
I’ve been paralyzed be this venomous snake.

In his eyes I can see the hypocrisy,
and his noxious grin convinces me,
that I’ll get what I need so he plants the seed.
And immediately, I feel invincibility,
but it can’t be real, it doesn’t make sense,
that I can feel so incomplete!

This venom flowing through my veins,
has set me free but I’m still wrapped in chains.
Emotions are true, the words are fake.
I’ve been paralyzed be this venomous snake.

This venom flowing through my veins,
consumes my soul but it takes away the pain.
Emotions are true, the words are fake.
I’ve been paralyzed be this venomous snake.

Ice is flowing through its veins,
and his touch gives me a frozen heart.
I’m breaking down but I must regain,
my strength so I can tear us apart.

I won’t succumb!
My body is numb but I’m growing stronger.
Now that I have you be your throat,
I’ll take your life and everything you own.

Almighty serpent, you shall serve me now.
I’ve taken the throne, warn them of my rebirth.
I’ll conquer this earth and make it my own.

I am your master, I own your soul.
You are the bastard, son of flesh and blood.

You are the bastard, son of flesh and blood!
11. Decennium (6:10)
Brothers rejoice!
I propose a toast to this decennium.
Followers celebrate, for this is our time.
No turning back now!

I share the tears of thousands like me.
Don’t be afraid, for my hand can be reached.
My friend, I know it’s hard to stay on your feet.
But you’re a part of a brotherhood that never admits defeat.

We’ve lost a lot of things along the way,
and I know that it’s hard to stay.
Just hold on, it won’t be long,
until this pain is gone.

If you bleed just know I bleed too,
I’ll never be hiding you from the truth.
Just hold on, for we are strong,
this is where we belong.

There’s a way out,
don’t hold onto doubt or hopelessness.
I’ve been down that road before.
Time won’t come back for you, look straight ahead.
There’s so much more, this isn’t the end.

I share the fears of thousands like me,
don’t be ashamed for I’m here to teach you.
My friend, I know it’s hard to stay on your feet.
But you’re a part of a brotherhood that never admits defeat.

We’ve lost a lot of things along the way,
and I know that it’s hard to stay.
Just hold on, it won’t be long,
until this pain is gone.

Don’t quit on me now!
This has to be what we were created for,
to walk side by side as one.

Walk side by side as one!

You’re safe now, my friend.
No one can hear you but me!
Tell me anything you need.
We’re the brotherhood of the blade!

Come together,
we’ve spent our whole lives separated.
And now it’s time to be as one and pave the way.
We’re the brotherhood of the blade!

If you bleed just know I bleed too,
I’ll never be hiding you from the truth.
Just hold on, for we are strong,
this is where we belong.
