The Northern Sanctuary Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Wake of Infinity (4:38)
Welcome the glow of the morning
Shedding the black of the night
Open his home to the sick
And the brave who are drowning in the fright

The hour is closer
For this place is alive
The power of healing as he prays
Worship the pain away

And his soul she will haunt

In the wake of construction
As the patients arrive
With a feeling of pride
On this glorious day
There's a shine in their eyes
And their trust is before you

When the tortured remain
And the silence will haunt the divine
And as the maddening dies
She appears as a beautiful sign

Here
In the wake of infinity
Cries
For the breath of divinity

The calming warm beside him
She makes her presence known
This angelic gift from high above
The shadows will betray him
Fate to overcome
Within her grace her love will always shine

When the tortured remain
And the silence will haunt the divine
And as the maddening dies
She appears as a beautiful sign

Here
In the wake of infinity
Cries
For the breath of divinity

Fear
For the sake of divinity
Death
To the dawn of infinity
2. In the Eyes of Idols (3:58)
Dawning of a new day
Seven a.m. rise
Escape from the darkness
They wake the pain

Released from solitude
Feeding in the common hall
Interact the social
Waiting for the water draw

Patterns emerge within their dreams
Teaching him like father to son
Finding a way to heal the world
With the fear they know

Murder the path of dependence
Leading the faithful as they fall
Murder the path of dependence
He writhes in the pain of who they are
Murder the path of dependence
Pray for the sick when life is the goal
Fall of dependence
Tearing them down

Tearing them down

Examine the urgent
This mode of life steals the day
Peering in the eyes of idols
To discover something strange

What is this he witnessed?
Exposed as a gift in time
Sickness revealed as a talent
May the wonder reign

Looking beyond their focused mind
Trying to grasp reality
Calling out to heal the faithless
Understanding the kind

Murder the path of dependence
Leading the faithful as they fall
Murder the path of dependencce
He writhes in the pain of who they are
Murder the path of dependence
Pray for the sick when life is the goal
Path of dependence will lead him to fail

Murder the path of dependence
Leading the faithful as they fall
Murder the path of dependence
He writhes in the pain of who they are
Murder the path of dependence
Pray for the sick when life is the goal
Path of dependence
Failing the cause
3. Rapture Ballet (4:25)
In the darkness of seclusion
She appears when he's alone
For God sent him an angel
For the worthy never lie

She will prey
There is no wait for tomorrow
She'll be here
He can't hide any more

The pain in the heart of desire
She stays and steals his love
He cries, all is lost in her beauty
His gilded heart
Dance the rapture ballet

In the light of desperation
Through a love he's never known
By a measure of seduction
For his God he must betray

She will prey
There is no wait for tomorrow
She'll be here
He can't hide any more

The pain in the heart of desire
She stays and steals his love
He cries, all is lost in her beauty
His gilded heart
Dance the rapture ballet

Redeem
His soul
Rotting faith displayed to see
To show
Weakness
Heed her wicked way
Her veil
Her ploy
Voice the tongue of evil's lie
No truth
Just hope
His love to betray
4. The Examiner (5:03)
For many years he was wrong and the logic fades away
His faith is tested everyday
The sickness is not what is seems but a gift he can't explain
Is it that he's the chosen one?

As darkness visits again
There's a burning deep within
Hiding away to follow her
Searching for all the answers
The process has begun
Destiny calling him way

Hiding in the soul for her to prey
She will steal them all and cast the world away
They will see the day when hell will come alive
As the fire burns, the demons will betray

With the power of a lonely God
One can hear for lands abroad
Sight to see tomorrow
Moving object, only with thought
One with strength beyond compare

There is evil inside desire
She could ease the pain
He's lost within her wicked cunning
And this is where he leaves his faith

He examines the strength and the power
but he couldn't grab the reign
The deepest fear of what stands before him
Never, never be the same

Hiding in the soul for her to prey
She will steal them all and cast the world away
They will see the day when hell will come alive
As the fire burns, the demons will betray

Hiding in the soul for her to prey
She will steal them all and cast the world away
They will see the day when hell will come alive
As the fire burns, the demons will betray
5. Marionette (4:37)
If he could see the gleam in heaven
He could believe her once again
Hiding in the heart that's cold and blind

She would demand his pure devotion
Like a drifter in a storm
Searching for a place that's safe and warm

And she will be there once again
Before his plight
Embrace the soul
The treason set aflame

As she steals his soul away
Before the war
For then he'll be
A mere puppet in her game

When the feeling dies
And the seeds are sown
When she calls his name
And his fear of the Godless will be from afar

She will steal his soul
All the joy will bleed
To concede for the heaven's lie
See the lighting strike through the rain
When the feeling dies

He feels the demon control him
Tear his mind away again
Tortured by the lust
Inside in dream

When he sees her face in the fire
Like a burning burial ground
Taken to where this hell is called home

And in the solitude of prayers
He feels the pain
A crushing blow
His savior never came

As if she held him in her arms
Falling blind
Betrayed by love
The loner bleeds the same

When the feeling dies
And the seeds are sown
When she calls his name
And his fear of the Godless will be from afar

She will steal his soul
All the joy will bleed
To concede for the heaven's lie
See the lighting strike through the rain

When the healing dies
And the words have gone
With the gall to blame
And his love of the helpless will be torn apart

She will force his hand
And the sick will bleed
To control his faith to defy
In the frightening light though the pain
Whe the healing dies

(When the feeling dies)
6. Divinity (3:02)
Anger, the lost divinity
And he'll waste no more time
Awakened, before the entity
For his faith's on the line

The madness before serenity
Where the dead will not wallow
Preacher, remove the deity
Slaughter them all in here

Conspire with the blackest night
Blood will be spilling, she knows
The fallen
They'll never leave again
Their screams will fade away

Patients' eyes are watching with decay
Torment with delight
The day has come, the darkness will arise
Cleanse the paranoid
Feel the strap, the tightening of a soul
Set them free, their light will fade away
Choking hollowed the restless for the prize

Desire for the kill within
Hear the begging no more
The fallen are never heard again
Make the pain go away

The madness before serenity
Where the dead will not wallow
Preacher, remove the deity
Slaughter them all in here

Patients' eyes are watching with decay
Torment with delight
The day has come, the darkness will arise
Cleanse the paranoid
Feel the strap, the tightening of a soul
Set them free, their light will fade away
Choking hollowed the restless for the prize

Patients' eyes are watching with decay
Torment with delight
The day has come, the darkness will arise
Cleanse the paranoid
Feel the strap, the tightening of a soul
Set them free, their light will fade away
Choking hollowed the restless for the prize
7. God of Ruin (5:32)
So it has become
Ever clear in a jaded lifetime
He is the chosen one
Body pure and never poisoned

The ritual's begun
Brought to life in the horrid forthright
Sharpened sense tonight
Bless the steel for the ceremony's knell

He is brought to another world
Where the fearless lie
Venture slow
The bleak will always fade
Shadows grin all around the fright
Many tortured souls
Alive in the wasteland of his mind

Before her, he kneels

Embrace the call for now he can't deny her
With their lives, the gifts come one by one
Ritual from hell to bring him higher
Lurking death behind the howling cries

The morbid yearning
For a glimpse now falls
Through the guidance of time

Cold stare bereaves within the mad beast
Not one survivor for her to gain
Precision cutting with a choir
And taste the flesh to ease the pain

Hold the violent rage
With bleeding hands
For the merciful one or
And all the glories will
Shine for evermore
Open the sky, blood rains down

Scent of burning flesh
Scent of burning flesh
The god of ruin has claimed the essence
Pure in lust divine
Pure in lust divine
Stalking power for the satisfied

Calling out her name
Angel of the night of dark deception
The devil’s haunting for a cruel heart

Cold stare bereaves within the mad beast
Not one survivor for her to gain
Precision cutting with a choir
And taste the flesh to ease the pain

Hold the violent rage
With bleeding hands
For the merciful one or
And all the glories will
Shine for evermore
Open the sky, blood rains down

Scent of burning flesh
Scent of burning flesh
The God of ruin has claimed the essence
Pure in lust divine
Pure in lust divine
Stalking power for the satisfied

Calling out her name
Angel of the night of dark deception
The devil’s haunting for a cruel heart
8. The Northern Sanctuary (13:44)
The centuries pass and the red moon rises
Lightening the path for eternal life
Tonight a hole shall tear the sky
Blood will fall as she meets her master

Casting the spell to transpire
Proving his faith was a lie
Forcing seduction through dying
Heaven will burn in the sky

Follow the heat of the pyre
Exhuming the demon tonight
Senses awake and he cries through the pain
Astrid has taken his soul

No longer in control
Shredding the minds' decay
Mother, the whore of sin
Howling away

Wise is the man who was led astray
Healing of strangers, to fall and to fail... Again
Living his dream so long, then taken away
Madness will falter between all the same

The wound in his heart now bleeds for God
Whispers in twilight for he is dying alone
Watching his dream decline, afterlife unknown
Slip into darkness and eternal pain

Search deep within for the love to regain
The cleansing heart for the pure
She'll never take claim
She dances with his soul
As their waltz is whirled away
He well shed the veil again
As the devil shows the way

Many years prepared to rule this day
For the time is now
High above in the starry sky opens
The failure of mankind

Ground painted with blood of the slain
The deep red afterglow
Desolation upon the floor
Will never wash away

There's nowhere left to run
The crippled pray to the end of time
Desecration of every soul
Cowardly on the downward climb

Left behind in a barren land
So many left in despair
Seeking truth through the acolyte this night
In the vile stench of the queen

In the wake of blood shed
Rights of man die
Demonic plagues unleashed from hell this night
Crimes of sick pay
Mounds of dead lie
Those who deny will be the frist to die
Heed the rapture
Trust your faith tonight
She's been revealed for eternal plight
The sky is open
The ritual complete
The angels tortured for the final time
Lighting strikes
The burning cast down

The separation of a shattered soul
Will burn their hopes away
The corpse of yearning is a rotting slime
Come smell the flesh decay

The sky has come alive
Black is the heart in throe
The eyes of the deadly crow
The new king is crowned

Unleash the maker of the tortured souls
Gather on the wake
The desecration of a faceless life
His fire will ignite

The sky has come alive
Black is the heart in throe
The eyes of the deadly crow
The new king is crowned

Wise is the man who was led astray
The mourning is weighing him down
As the world crumbles away
He's drifting apart from the light
As she carries his soul away
Madness will falter between all the same

Write the words of blasphemy
Lives of a rotting past
Sacrifice for divinity
Kneel before the war

Rise
Leave the sanctity of reality
Man will drown
Bathe in the blood pool of the ascending one

Gaze of her master's peer
Those who smite his daughters deity
Witness the welcoming
Open arms of the father

Oh, with wings she's ascending
Oh, the angel of hell's decayed
