The Contender's Abyss (2016 ver.) Lyrics

4. The Contender's Abyss (2016 ver.) (4:46)
Track rating :  87.5 / 100      Votes :  2     
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
