Birth and the Burial Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Mefisto
1. Throwback
Stuck, a relic in time
Dated, erase from my mind
Your words have no merit
Whisper from the past, grin and bear it

Actions, horrid things you do
Court jester playing the fool
Hypocrite in your belief
To all you're nothing but a thief!

But a thief!

Time has come
Penance for things you've done
Lies spilling from your teeth
Spewing up from beneath
You're a throwback!
Nothing but a throwback!

Winding back the hands of time
Taking back what is mine
Life no longer will I give
Another sucker to help you live

Your presence makes me sick
Spreading lies, think it makes you slick
On the table, nothing to offer
Morally bankrupt, empty the coffer

Casting out the line
Friendship torn, we pay the fine
Put us all on the hook
For the lives that you took
You're a throwback!
Nothing but a throwback!

THROWBACK!
THROWBACK!
THROWBACK!
THROWBACK!

Bad blood, on the wall
Shouts echo through the hall
And though, you can't see
Your absence I decree

Dagger, in the back
Cold blood, soul of black
Live and learn, we're all heard
On your own, the absurd

[Solo]

Cockroach under my foot
Scurrying away with what you took
Back from the filth, which you came
Stealing ideas for your acclaim

Parasite bleeding out my vein
Diminishing the soul as you drain
Weakened will, you're left with doubt
It's at this time I cast you out

Talking behind our backs
Making allies with false facts
The circles that you spin
Confusion, chaos, you can't win
You're a throwback!
Nothing but a throwback!

Vulture picking through the scraps
Rummage around your hopes collapse
Picked to the bone no more to swallow
Retribution soon to follow

Virus spreading though the human race
Disguised as a friend as you dry to save face
The fever runs its frantic course
Rooting you out at the source

Hourglass of fate
Falling sands as you berate
Kinship only as it serves
Wretched friendship no one deserves
You're a throwback!
Nothing but a throwback!

Bad blood, on the wall
Shouts echo through the hall
And though, you can't see
Your absence I decree

Dagger, in the back
Cold blood, soul of black
Live and learn, we're all heard
On your own, the absurd

THROWBACK!
2. Legion of Lies
So we are born to devolve
Conceived to abide the deceiver
Abhorrent oppressor you are
Condemning them all, fake redeemer
Descendent of fire
The rebel angels: they bear witness
Brace for destruction
The human spiral commences now

The inconceivable dream
The hope, it fades from your eyes
Humanity is degraded... by a legion of lies

We are no slaves to resistance
Leads you to the fading light
No man's land where the human vice turns
Lost and there's no end in sight

Cleansing our wounds in the blood
Advocates of utmost evil
Speak of a savior in tongues
Banish him with your betrayal
Command the disciples
The remnants of all bastard children
Punish and prosper, initiation starts now

A moral and all-knowing God
Born to lead us to damnation
Condemned to the afterworld
Disgraced by the congregation
Vile in his sermon, principle of his existence
Fed by corruption, forbid the profane
We're your flesh now
3. Thy Lord Belial
Forcing out the lies upon those believers seek the truth
Banished by the blood that now flows
Chosen are the few that make the rules
Justify in denial, disguising all the clues
Enter the place of no return
Sacred scars thy lord Belial

Strike me down, evil unseen. Renounce the crown
Buried beneath. Strike me down, death of a dream
Nothing to redeem (Falsehood of Hope)

Remain in the darkness, one knows there's nothing to see
Sinking from below corruption, souls converge
Sinful supremacy
The Masters heard through thunder, Altar of deceit
Relics of our final rapture, Sacred scars thy lord Belial

Immaculate, the infernal son, Throne of the adversary
Infliction, the iniquities, Abomination & decay
The innocent immoral one, Damned in th court of the king
Dissension & impurity, False deity
4. Refrain and Re-Fracture
Who you are and who you were
With everything you say, it's said and done
Nothing to shield the disdain
Illusion of a broken man you are
You're disconnected from the world beyond yourself
See that what you do hurts someone else
Such inhumanity...
It's pure insanity, the words in which you speak

You're going in for the kill
The hunter is acptured by its prey - It's only natural
You play the game not to win
Seek comfor in pleasure that's your pain - refarin and re-fracture

Unfulfilled and full of rage
Emptiness you feel, it's all your fault
The waking hours remain
The lack consciousness says who you are

You set the standard for your sheep senceless ignorance
Your arrogance makes sure you always get your way
You hide behind the door, given another chance
You'd do it all again, despite the guilt and shame

Dismantled and disengaged, rely on promises and broken vows
The voice of reason is void, embrace the future as a total loss
5. Dead Stare
Vengeance, strike you down with no apology
Penance, for the depth of my psychology
Reaching out, trying to find a place to exist
Presence, the moments's struggle slowly consuming me

[Solo]

Silence, buried inside the secrets we all hide
Essence, all the good within but can't abide
The light once had, crushed under black skies
Remnants, hopes and dreams ignite, come alive!

Legacy, what would you have me to be?
Jealousy, the shell is all that's left to see
Heresy, leave me to my misery
Remedy, confront my pain peacefully

Legacy, what would you have me to be?
Jealousy, the shell is all that's left to see
Heresy, leave me to my misery
Remedy, confront my pain peacefully

I see myself

Falling, into a dead stare
The mirror's grimace is more than I can bear
Calling, out in the cold dark air
Does anybody hear me? Like I'm not there!


[Solo]

Falling, into a dead stare
The mirror's grimace is more than I can bear
Crawling, out of the dark despair
Rising from the ashes sinister ensnare

Legacy, what would you have me to be?
Jealousy, the shell is all that's left to see
Heresy, leave me to my misery
Remedy, confront my pain peacefully

[Solo]

Acceptance, for regrets that past cannot be changed
Riddance, shed the skin of thoughts once deranged
Through the dark, shards of light pierce the cloud
Reverence, avoid the mirrors glances and the shame

Crawling from a dead stare
Forestalling a dead stare
6. Disastrophe (A New Reality)
We're taught to see ourselves as something invincible
Low self-opinion, is that all we've created?
Assembly line of souls, for lack of principles
We're playing God now that our savior has failed us
Manifestation, heed objective ambivalence
Genetic torture, seeds of manipulation
Methodical machines, we're raped of our innocence
A new reality through eradication

Our brave new world disappears, the Armageddon is here
No mere mortal holds the key, Wastelands - Disastrophe

Defuse the motion, revolution around the bend
We're back to zero, our guards down - we're defenseless
The termination of the mind, it's our bitter end
Contortion divides with dire consequences

Evolve, revolt, disguise, distrust

The road to extinction, decimate humanity
Extreme isolation, catastrophic scorched earth tragedy
Cries of desolation, obliterate technology
The remifications, remnants of our lost society

Our hands are tied, we're somewhere in between space and time
Superiority, here nothing is sacred
Hounds of hypocrisy, they howl in the dead of night
Chaos it reigns eternal, void of creation
7. Poison Dream
Choice made to step on backs, to stop at nothing, until the spine cracks
Ground laid forsaking all, sneaking in the shadows, emerge, standing tall
No thoughts of effect, the cause is always greed the rest you neglect
Say goodnight to the world, the problems you caused unravel unfurl

To stop at nothing
Fulfilling hope
And those once tursting against the ropes
To kill the empathy
Devise your scheme
You're burning anyone, for your poison dream

Decimate!
Escalate!
Your thoughts and goals would have everyone filled with hate
Designate!
Devastate!
The sign of damage not seen until it's too late

The crime, when it's all said and done who's at fault?
Your right like a victim condemned, an assault
Your dark thoughts of victory, we are all scarred
Forgot, those so simple for you to dsicard

[Solo]

To take and deceive
An act of kindness, is more than you cenceive
Dry lake of emotion
Sympathy for others is a foreign notion

To stop at nothing
Fulfilling hope
And those once tursting against the ropes
To kill the empathy
Devise your scheme
You're burning anyone, for your poison dream

Relegate
Delegate
Putting goals over other others, in extreme

Desecrate
Total hate
A forewarning for the poison dream!
8. Obey the Fallen
There's no resolve - revenge for blood
Bravery becomes your disguise for war
Freedom is forced - What is it worth?
Wear the scars with pride, disregard the hurt
Into the fold - been through the worst
Society just throws you away like dirt
The banner is torn - This land is not yours
They've come to take everything you are

Struck by aggression, you're not real
Just an illusion - Exit here
Obey the fallen, fight and kill
Your execution - line starts here

Do what you're told - Torn from your home
Withstand all the suffering that you've caused
Have no remorse - Feel nothing more
Hide your pain, prepare for the final course
Waiting your turn - No matter the cost
You give your life, admit to yourself you've lost
Watch the fields burn - Forget who you are
Reveal all your hopes and dreams are gone

Is this retaliation? Another solider is scorned
Bow your head, ask forgiveness
The inevitable - Your exit here
Fail to follow - heart so hollow - heartless
Fail to follow - heart so hollow - exit here

They take control - Bound by the law
Traded in your family for a gun
Damage is done - Hell here on earth
Sworn to die with honor, hero to all
9. Crimson Psalm
Sound of th psalm, light before dawn
Born into a symphony of snakes
Nothing beyond, the cold winter's spawn
Our enemy approaching closer

One kneads earth & clay, blessing made of dust
Flowers wilt, only left with the thorns
The ravage sky shakes, falling leaves of rust
Crimson word we sing is our only (broken) song

War between worlds, the right side of wrong
We are the atrocities unnamed
United by arms, dagger & sword
Years will never bring us closure
Souls slain under the crimson psalm
The darkest hour is ours

The cleansing of mankind is past due
Ten thousand horns are overheard
The scene of destruction is all we knew
Our broken bloodline says it all
Extinction of our time, the only truth
The cries of rebellion and shattered youth
Rise from the fog and save us all

The killing floor, bonded by blood
Lost beyond the reverie and pain
Fight for the cause, we've come so far
We shall never be forsaken
10. Birth and the Burial
Cast into flame, you are the fire. Bridges, they burn
Your friends walk away from tou now
Debts from the past. Strangers return, promises sold
They've come to collect what you owe

Rest and repent your sins, it's a feast for the deard
Heaven's burning below - Your name on a tombstone
Your fate, it falls on deaf ears, with every unanswered prayer
Your reap what you sow - The birth and the burial

You're bleeding out, buried alive. It's your last breath
You're helped dig the hole that's your grave
Sever the ties, leave them behind. You've tortured yourself
Haunted by your biggest mistake

No God will answer your call, you're left to die on your own
Give yourself unto the earth, it's best for everyone else

Fatal embrace, feed their desire, your cradle, it falls
Your firstborn will surely be blind
Mourning the loss, you are the sign, an unspoken curse
Secrets untold, come to life
