Repent Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Skullgrindere       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Rotting from Within (4:38)
Two ships
warships
rotting from within
crew aboard
bored
in times of peace
dreaming up
wars
enemies
purpose
for warriors
a dying breed
Ref Rust keeps creeping from the vessel's core
bring back the myths of the patriarchs
looking for a battle
revival
looking for a battle
uniting
looking for a battle

Two ships
sinking
old and atrophied
one spots
another
finds an enemy
water
seeps through
the gaps that come from age
one ship
sinks first
one clams the victory

Ref Rust keeps creeping from the vessel's core
bring back the myths of the patriarchs
looking for a battle
revival
looking for a battle
uniting
looking for a battle

Pity the
soldiers
brought down by peace
useless
weapons
farewell to arms
no heroes
or myths
to keep wars alive
pity
the warriors
a dying breed

Ref
2. Repent (5:02)
Messenger
sanctified at your birth
ordained by fate
be worthy of your might

Halleluia, hail the holy man
who by right
divine right
gives the command to kneel down
pay your tithe
and then repent

you sinners, repent
you sinners, repent

Ref.: Hell lies in the heart
purge your spirit free
no refuge in the church
swindlers cry " REPENT !"

Messenger
self proclaimed prophet
blackening hearts
while cloaked in sacred white

Resist the call to hatred
by holy men
intolerant
your prophets speak of peace on earth
tolerance is
unconditional

you sinners, repent
you sinners, repent

Ref.: Hell lies in the heart
faith appears in waves
no refuge in the church
in solitude repent

Angels fall
night shining in their breath
haunting your dreams
awakening dark desires

The messenger will claim your soul
beware his kiss
serpent's lips
evil within angelic skin
poison plasma
body and blood

Ref.: Hell lies in the heart
purge your spirit free
no refuge in the church
oh holy man repent
3. Get Saved (4:32)
Get Saved
Crusade
Have it made
Battlefields await the righteous man

Jesus saves
Crusades kill
Sex for Christ
Be fruitful, fill the earth with christian men

Open wide the gates of heaven
We await your reservation
Don't forget your donation

We'll save
The chosen
Few
You don't think that this applies to you

We can save
Your soul
From hell
But only if you're heterosexual

Accept the
Inevitable
Leave your nature goddess behind
One culture
It supreme
The bible says it's mine
Forget that old
Pagan love
Primitive path to hell
Jesus saves
Cultures fade
Redeem your wampum dreams with gold

Forget
The ancients
Goddess
Trust me
Believe
Follow
Trust me
Follow

Devils call
The search
For wisdom
Eve has seeking enlighten ment for life

We've got
A plan
For death
Curiosity killed the cat
4. Sacrifice Machine (6:26)
Burning
God, my eyes see bloody red
Keep it straight machine

Screaming
But you don't turn busy head
Got to stay in line
Sacrifice machine

You're pleading
Bleedin at the knees
Don't feel a thing
Sacrifice machine

Evolution
Born of crisis
No regrets
Sacrifice machine

Serve the law
Of natural order
Some must die
Sacrifice machine

Clean hands
Servant's bloody
Give the word
Sacrifice machine

At the altar
Of pagan greed
Leave a gift
Sacrifice machine

We feast at his expense
Deaf to his suffering cries
He strikes in desperation
And we cry out "Revenge!!

Negligence
Passive and silent murder
See my stainless hands
Suicide machine

Inaction
Until I am the sacrifice
My life at risk
Sudden interest

Evolution
Born of crisis
No regrets
Sacrifice machine

Serve the Law
Of Dr. Darwin
Some must die
Sacrifice machine

Evolution
Child of crisis
No regrets
Sacrifice machine

Evolution
Bourne of crisis
Who's next
Sacrifice machine
5. The Living Dead (4:20)
New church of the hollow
Answer to your prayers
Life uncomplicated
Free from decision-making
Promise of salvation
In the land of neon light
Only prerequisite is total submission

The living dead
With empty heads

Followers
Of the false prophets
Bowdown
To plastic gods
Brainwash
New form of purity
Next step
Full lobotomy

Start a new life
Clean up your conscience
Be reborn
Just like a child
Leave it to us
We'll take the reigns
Just do you duty
You're free from responsability

The living dead
With empty heads
Entranced they work
Entraced they prey

We are bearing witness
For the hypnotist
He filled our emptiness
With a sense of purpose
We needed to be led
No questions clutter our heads
No wrathful punishment
If we keep the commandments

Start a new life...

The living dead
6. The Drones (4:18)
Witness knocking at my door
Can not hear me saying no
His face has a listlessness
In his eyes a certain blankness
He's one of the master's drones
In obedient servant hood
Out gathering new disciples
Spreading word of the sacred scriptures

Something is controlling me
Someone whispers in my subconsious
They're telling me what to think
It's force-fed information

We're a captive audience
Inactive, consumers
Direct link the media
One source of information

Something is controlling me...

Something controls
My subconscious
Tells what to think
Force-fed information

In grey flannel uniforms
We serve another master
Not for salvation, but for gold

Yes money has its powers

There are sets in camouflage
They are serving a flag
Highest honour is through death
Salute the great strategists

Something is controlling me...
7. Judgement Gone Blind (5:41)
Judgement gone blind
Loss of value
Definition melting dow
Like landscapes in the night
Straining for clarity
Only begets ambiguity

No focus
Confusion
Chaos
Delusions

Seek
Sought the truth
Speak
Wrought with lies
Fear Partial truth
Mercy
Cruel as lies

Betraying you
Deceiving myself
Conflicting synonymity
You demand honesty
I offer you ambiguity

Disguised as
Protection
Merciful
Manipulation

Don't
Look at me
Don't
Want to know
Fear
Partial truth
Mercy Cruel as lies

Lies
Or is it the truth
Ease
Slide from my lips
Truth
Or is it a lie
Lost
Judgement gone blind

Self constructed mirages
Haunt inner desert landscapes
Magnetic dreams of painlessness
Decide our futile path
Mirages vanish before us
Revealing the death of sacred truth
Mercy's seduction of the mind
Enchants the soul to damnation

Disguised as
Protection
Merciful
Manipulation
8. Nosferatu (4:07)
Within her outcry against the death
The astounded me with the truth and innocence
Sadly I laughed inspite of myself
And gave her the unwanted news of our chance
I would go forth to the land of thieves
Go forth against her better instincts

Your blood
Your sweat
Your reward in gold
Your toil
Your sweat
Your reward in dreams
Your blood
Your neck
Your youth will revive me
Your fear
Your blood
Your Nosferatu

Hellbent on fortune I felt despite her plea
Old man with the ancient script shouting after me
The symbols told that no one can change his fate
I fled, ignoring him, I knew the count awaited
I took the hell road of local superstitions
My sole emotion was my raw ambition
My greed became my logic and my guide
My dark host laughed as I arrived

Your blood...

Shadows climbed the staircase walls
Death struck twelve and the guest was prey
I sealed a pact with my morbid host
And awake a prisoner in his estate
Entrapped as the deathship sailed for my home
They found the captain strapped to the mast
The phantom had come, lured by a pure heart
Only to perish with her at dayfight

Your blood...
9. Metal Machine Music (Die Krupps cover) (5:28)
METAL MACHINE MUSIC

(repeat)

forget what shame is/
(what) fear remorse and pain is/
we are relentless/
anything for progress/
an operation soulless/
we're heartless and godless/
(we're) synchronized and seamless/
in worship of success/

WHY DO WE ACT LIKE MACHINES?

(repeat)

METAL MACHINE MUSIC

(repeat)

forget...(cont.)
united we're faceless/
swalled by the masses/
a mechanism flawless/
infallible and lawless/
an operation soulless
we're heartless and godless
we're synchronized and seamless
in warship of success

WHY DO WE ACT LIKE MACHINES?

(repeat)

METAL MACHINE MUSIC

(repeat)

fearless
tearless
heartless
for the sake of prowess
remorseless
painless
shameless
in return for success
forget...(cont.)

WHY DO WE ACT LIKE MACHINES

(repeat)

MACHINES.
