Formshifter Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level chelsea485
1. Behold (God I Am) (7:18)
Man's greatest mystery
It's human nature to believe in something
Legions died throughout history
In debate of the one true deity

Ages refuting cloned scriptures
Races of reigning terror

Behold the anger inside
Eyes of the innocent sent their demise
Foretold leaders we create
We the puppets you manipulate

[Solo: Glisan]

Man's greatest tragedy
Opposing sects feud on similar theories
Theologies crucify in the name
Disputing the absolute being

Ages refuting cloned scriptures
Races of reigning terror

Behold the anger inside
Eyes of the innocent sent their demise
Foretold leaders we create
We the puppets you manipulate

[Solo: Burgess]

In defiance over existence
Fueling aversion, feeding envy

Infinite sermons, an endless tirade
One creator of endless carnage

[Solo: Burgess]
[Solo: Glisan]

What logic explains contradiction
Denies equality, promotes eradication

Behold the anger inside
Eyes of the innocent sent their demise
Foretold leaders we create
We the puppets you manipulate

So created, so destroyed
Behold, God I am [2x]
2. Tartessos: The Hidden Xenocryst (4:24)
In this bay on Sandbar Mantels
A city built in concentric circles
Advancements Spawned
And by others sought
Our Metallurgy is Second to Naught
Praised by Pharaoh and Plebs alike
On throne and stone a beacon of light
To separate from the myths
Just delve into the hieroglyphs
To set forth the crowning of Atlantis

The birthplace of Civilization
Cast to the depths the kingdom fell
they faced annihilation
Our legacy is a xenocryst

From Herculean to Poseidon
From Atlantic to the Aegean
From the Greek to Egyptian
From the End of (The) World descend
Swallowed at Gibraltar's straits
Tsunami waters open floodgates
To separate from the myths
Just delve into the Hieroglyphs
To set forth the crowning of Atlantis

The birthplace of Civilization
Cast to the depths the kingdom fell
They faced annihilation
Our legacy is a Xenocryst

[Solo: Glisan]
[Solo: Burgess]

Under the surface
Awaits Antiquity
With the Capacity
Of an Epiphany

[Solo: Glisan]

Beneath the Surface
Arcane secrets lie
Rewrite our histories
The key to ancient times

[Solo: Burgess]

Ancient Intelligence brought forth Development
Washed Away by Torrential Waves
Submerged Continent they Fled for New Settlement
Those left behind were sent to their graves

The Birthplace of Civilization
Cast to the depths the kingdom fell
They faced Annihilation
Our legacy is a xenocryst
3. A Path Disclosed (4:29)
Present Orchestrated Content
Yields Subliminal Effects
Leading the Herd in the Direction
Down the path of great decline

We can all
Take it back
Inform our own
Tear them down
We can all
Take their Throne

Here lies the population that
Believes what they've been sold
Lies forged by Corporations that
Design what we are told

We can all
Take it back
Inform our own
Tear them down
We can all
Take their Throne

[Solo: Burgess]
[Solo: Glisan]

Pulling the strings of humanity for a gain
Global Dissection Disclosure Infection
Molding the messages provided
So the Affluent Reigns
Elite made Decisions Governing
Transformations

[Solo: Burgess & Glisan]

Past repeats with Revolutions by the ones
That cast the first stone
Fear Deceit Manipulation The Upper Hand
Adjudicates the Known

We can all
Take it back
Inform our own
Tear them down
We can all
Take their Throne
4. Iconic Images (4:24)
[Solo: Glisan]

On scripts of Perfection and Plenty
Rest Markings of the Gods
In crypts of deception and memory
Foretell past present and future to all

An era of Oscillation

We've looked to the skies
We've carved into stone
We've held up on high
The tracts and characters of the old

[Solo: Burgess]

Antiquities to Machines
Steel structures stand mighty and tall
The origins now obsolete
Which Primitives had once Foreseen

An era of oscillation

We've looked to the skies
We've carved into stone
We've held up on high
The tracts and characters of the old

[Solo: Glisan]

The heavens look down
On heathens abound
Over star covered skies
Mysteries surround

Designed from above
Creates gods below
Advancing a species forward
Ancient worlds Bestowed

[Solo: Burgess]

Present to future
From man to machines
Origins history
The ancient once had foreseen

An era of Oscillation

We've looked to the skies
We've carved into stone
We've up on high
The tracts and characters of the old
5. Twelve (7:11)
Under his spell to her he was god
Quenching the thirst for lust and blood
Sadistic encounters numbers rise
The bodies recovered multiply

Evil sides
In these two minds

Two wolves in sheep skin the undeserved
Still leaves the question
Why he serves life and she only served

Plaguing the lives of their victims
At the expense of their last breath

Evil resides
In man and bride

Two wolves in sheep skin the undeserved
Still leaves the question
Why he serves life and she only served

They were led to their own slaughter

Abominations under sedation
Nothing can take back what you've done
Emotionless absent malcontent
Nothing will bring back your own blood

[Solo: Glisan]
[Solo: Burgess]

They were led to their own slaughter

Two wolves in sheep skin the undeserved
Still leaves the question
Why he serves life and she only served twelve.
6. The Azrael Trigger (5:00)
Taking away one's identity
Till their conscious cease to exist
Redirecting their Mentality
Ruling the Mind with an Iron Fist
Subverting sense of control
Coercive Persuasion
Stripping away one's soul
Soon to be Disembodied

Blinded eyes programmed minds controlled
They Lead You follow
Frequencies Redesigned to Obey
And Inside Left hollow

A message to the Subconscious
Subtle Manipulation
Freedom of Mind Lead Astray
With Cerebral Dictation

Subverting Sense of Control
Coercive Persuasion
Stripping away one's soul
Soon to be Disembodied

Blinded eyes Programmed minds controlled
They lead You follow
Frequencies redesigned to obey
And inside Left hollow

Complete Isolation Thought reform
You will do our buddings against your will
Detached from reality mind reborn
You will do our biddings against your will

[Solo: Burgess]
[Solo: Glisan]
[Solo: Burgess]

Repetition and trust in source
Induced distraction opens doors
Subliminal views they enforce
Cognitive dissonance runs its course

Subverting sense of control
Coercive persuasion
Stripping away one's soul
Soon to be disembodied

Blinded eyes programmed minds controlled
They lead You follow
Frequencies redesigned to obey
And inside Left hollow
7. From the Stars Death Came (5:25)
Reality presents itself
Forcing us to revisit the past
Once again we face extinction
The end of days is drawing near
Reaching near and far for solutions

Apocalyptic
Solar system ballistics
Projected to hit the sea
Embracing the truth
Of failing this world
With lack of knowledge to curve this tragedy

Tonight's the night of impact
From the skies fire rains
Piercing through the surface
From the stars death came

Engulfed in flames
Atmospheric changes
Floods that wash the land away
Fractured tectonic plates
Debris initiates
The start of a new ice age

Tonight's the night of impact
From the skies fire rains
Piercing through the surface
From the stars death came

[Solo: Burgess]

Colossal cosmic collisions causes
A shaping of a new world

[Solo: Glisan]
[Solo: Burgess]
[Solo: Glisan]

As the nights grow colder by this arctic shift
Vibrations moving slower transitions settle in
Eternal frost is triggered by absent light
Evidence of existence concealed in ice

Tonight's the night of impact
From the skies fire rains
Piercing through the surface
From the stars death came

[Solo: Burgess]
8. Timeline Dissonance (3:21)
Through humanity's progression
Countless generations
Not one word is to remain the same
The populace still stakes their claim

Somebody has their timeline wrong
Can't you see the fallacies?
Somebody has their timeline

Centuries of all beliefs disputed
And yet it remains undefined
Aging systems true meanings become diluted
The masses carry an axe to grind

Lost hope for prosperity
Crucifying others based on belief
A choice of divinity
Or the opposed theory of nothing

Somebody has their timeline wrong
The answer lies in no man
Somebody has their

Centuries of all beliefs disputed
And yet it remains undefined
Aging systems true meanings become diluted
The masses carry an axe to grind

[Solo: Burgess]

These contentions
Result in bloodshed
These convictions
Are to remain undead

[Solo: Glisan]

Somebody has their timeline wrong
Can't you see the fallacies?
Somebody has their timeline wrong

Centuries of all beliefs disputed
And yet it remains undefined
Aging systems true meanings become diluted
The masses carry an axe to grind
9. Formshifter (5:18)
Triggering of patterns
Through Frequencies of time
Altering identity
Reforming of the skyline
Shifting of the layers
Reformed and refined
Now man and land
Are morphing their designs

The faces of man shift with dividing land

Watch as we span the time
Changing shapes
Changing lines
See as we redefine
Shifting eras
Shifting sides

[Solo: Glisan]

Under the surface
Disturbances dwell
Releasing of energy
That strain and stress have built
Riding on the surface
The aftermath revealed
This violent struggle
Destinations less concealed

The faces of man shift with dividing land

Watch as we span the time
Changing shapes
Changing lines
See as we redefine
Shifting eras
Shifting sides

[Solo: Burgess]

The architects of anarchy
Virility spawning chaos abound
The creators of hostility
Vicinity a breeding ground

[Solo: Glisan]
[Solo: Glisan]

The faces of man shift with dividing land

Watch as we span the time
Changing shapes
Changing lines
See as we redefine
Shifting eras
Shifting sides
10. Secrets of the Sequence (6:23)
As this new millennium dawns our knowledge grows
Hormonal pathways mapped genes juxtaposed
Redefining longevity
Meeting pious acetosity

Genetic modification our chromosomes cease to fray
DNA's Achilles heel oxidization torn away

So what do we do?
So where do we go now that the secret's uncovered?
So what do we do?
So where do we go now that the sequence is deciphered?

Reconstruction for our supremacy
To halt this constant path of mortality
Redefining our design
Continue to multiply and divide

Genetic modification our chromosomes cease to fray
DNA's Achilles heel oxidation torn away

So what do we do?
So where do we go now that the secret's uncovered?
So what do we do?
So where do we go now that the sequence is deciphered?

[Solo: Burgess]
[Solo: Burgess & Glisan]
[Solo: Glisan]
[Solo: Burgess]
[Solo: Burgess & Glisan]
[Solo: Glisan]

Life expectancy now infinity
Fountain of youth is now a reality
Population the new emergency
Human perseverance to eternity

An intricate mitochondrial matrix
Collides head on with humanity's ethics
Redefining definitions
Life and death extinction

Genetic modification our chromosomes cease to fray
DNA's Achilles heel oxidation torn away

So what do we do?
So where do we go now that the secret's uncovered?
So what do we do?
So where do we go now that the sequence is deciphered?
