Echoes for the Fallen Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level irwany
1. To Live Not Remain (4:42)
Every day
Set the goals, embrace the illusion
This ain't the way supposed to be
Confessed yourself to death
And wore your scare on every sleeve
This candied maxim stays the same
This pained reprieve

Torn apart
Again and again
Same old lives
Justify your means
To live
Not just remain

Bury me
In this suit I wear today
Another wasted dream
A dream that fades away
Staring at these walls
Inside this fucking hourglass
Just stand in line
This lonely mile
Is bleaker still

Torn apart
Again and again
Same old lives
Justify your means
To live
Not just remain

It's a long road nowhere
This journeys fate intact

Torn apart
Again and again
Same old lives
Justify your means
To live
Not just remain
2. Blood In The Throne Room (5:08)
Burn
The fire will light the path
Trade for the nightfall
The pattern is so predictable
Another reason to dream in the moment
Not be denied
I'm not a product of circumstance
Or a name in a line

Pull me down
Same old lies
Pull me down

It's this sheltered life that you're living
Try to recognise
Your choked up words
Are empty still

Fight Blood in the throne room
It's over
These towers fall
Blood in the throne room
It's over
This towers fall

Your lies
Pull me down
Same old lies
Pull me down
We're alone

Fear is the change
That brings you down
Blood in the throne room
It's over, it's over
Mirror my lesson learned
Tailored for reason
Laid to rest your lies

Fight Blood in the throne room
It's over
These towers fall
Blood in the throne room
It's over
This towers fall
3. Tyranny (5:02)
It bleeds the weak
This shallow empire is built on lives
Lives crushed down as they tried to fight
This darkened heart will bear no compromise
And with no thought of weakness

Born a slave
Take the hand of the master
Floods rise all around
Blind our eyes then betray us
In silence we drown

The task is simple
Put more coins in the hand
Now hold your tongue
And lay your loyalty down

Born a slave
Take the hand of the master
Floods rise all around
Blind our eyes then betray us
In silence we drown

Blue blooded tyrants
The faces of sin
They wear the masks
That smile with "mercies" grin

Black gates protecting
Their fortress of lies
It holds the vial of ink
That scripts our demise

This greed infects
Their blackened hearts are reaping
Gold and green

Amassing as we lose the fight
For now we see an altered shade of real
There's no one left to conquer

You're born a slave
Take the hand of the master
Floods rise all around
Blind our eyes then betray us
In silence we drown
4. Of Gods And Men (4:44)
Crusade
To march with a heart filled with rage
A lust for revenge
Traded for blood
Stare as the life drips from the blade
It seals your demise
How easy the hand fits the throat

Your mind so cold and hollow
Will disgrace and destroy
Yet still claim reprieve
So easily
Your faith blinds you all

You the restless martyr
Now receive
A solemn note from callous hands
These are the words you must obey
Take life for belief
Vile actions echo through time

Now raise the torch
We will never forgive
Never forget
Lesson not learned in blood
Are soon forgot

Lead the guilty to the rope

Unite and raise the torch
We will never forgive
Never forget
Lesson not learned in blood
Are soon forgot

Never forgive, never forge
Lesson not learned in blood
Are soon forgot
5. By Horror Haunted (4:36)
You trail the hounds
That chase your dreams away
Hopeless you are
The vultures lie in wait
Graceless road ahead
Your fate is undisguised

Fight back
This is your welcome to solitude
Dawn fades
Shed your skin
Your sun will set
To rise again

Dare to fail
The rope's around your neck
Obey the call
When it sounds like hope
Crushed by apathy
You'll forever be lost

Defy
And see the light reapear
Lest you forget
Without fear inside you'll fail
And see the light reappear
Lest you forget
For as long as you breathe you hope

Wake from this nightmare

Step from the ruins
That shadow fates embrace
Break from these chains
That shackle
Rise and prevail

Fight back
This is your welcome to solitude
Dawn fades
Shed your skin
Your sun will set
To rise again

Defy
And see the light reapear
Lest you forget
Without fear inside you'll fail
And see the light reappear
Lest you forget
For as long as you breathe you hope
6. Echoes Of The Fallen (1:26)
7. The Evangelist (3:57)
Lay your dollar down
To pray before me
These words that i'll preach
Are set to stoke the fire
Raise your hands
This gift of hope I give to you
Your faith is my cruel device

Keep your god
And I His Riches
Bow Down
Before Me
For I
The Evangelist

You'll never find salvation
No matter what the cost
To not embrace existence
Is this the price of belief?

Now praise
The souls that give will now be saved
My words are lies laced with disguise

Keep your god
And I His Riches
Bow Down
Before Me
Immortal I stand

You'll never find salvation
No matter what the cost
To not embrace existence
Be forever lost
You'll never find redemption
no matter what the cost
This is the price of belief
8. Sleep Soundly No More (5:11)
What sight to witness
This is darkened room shows no escape
Chaotic bleakness
These thoughts that haunt my will
To be free

A cursed fire burns inside
As I embrace the silence
The peace is fuel for the machine
As I feel

Wrath of fate
These scathing eyes
Cast illusions light
The past is now awake
Feeding on this dark tranquil air
Wasted I am
Wicked we are

I'm fighting this solace
I pay my debt with anxious fear
But still I face this
Rising tide of blame

Am I the criminal
Or am I the victim

Wrath of faith
These scathing eyes
Cast illusions light
The past is now awake
Feeding on this dark tranquil air
Wasted I am
Wicked we are

Am I the liar
In that I must doubt
Is this still real
Am I the noble one
I set them free
Now set me free

Sleep soundly no more

Wrath of faith
These scathing eyes
Cast illusions light
The past is now awake
Feeding on this dark tranquil air
Wasted I am
Wicked we are
9. Venomous (4:12)
Sit the fuck down little boy
I've seen a million like you
And I wish everyone could see
Cold heart and hollow mind
This story's getting so old and dire
It's rehashed pathetic and weak

Wretched you stand
Desperate you'll fall
You'll struggle in vain

Blind hate so unjust
I'm sick of hearing from you
The lies
Your cruelty without a cause

Futile and sick
Where are you heading now
You're future is cursed

Hope for us all
Dies with you
Destined to come crashing down
This road leads to despair
Defeated
Mankind stays the same

Shameless tainted soul
Your tale will never be told
Denied, archaic, it's echoes are weak

Futile and sick
Where are you heading now
You're future is cursed

Hope for us all
Dies with you
Destined to come crashing down
This road leads to despair
Defeated
Mankind stays the same
10. Senora De Las Sombras (5:24)
Dark reveals
I sense her luring eyes
And her evil intentions
Without a voice
She calls me into her arms
But I feel a cold embrace
The sweet sting of fear

Come to me
Taste my gift of death
I'll lift the weight of existence
Take my hands
And I will lead you
To the sleep that you crave

Alone
I fade away
I stand alone
With all my regrets

Towards me she steps
In silence
Bitter her stare
Can I turn away from this
Our fatal engagement

Come to me
Taste my gift of death
I'll lift the weight of your life

As I face the darkness
To fade away
I stand alone
With all my regrets
Will I find the answers
As I fade away
I stand alone
For all eternity

Now take my hand
And I will lead you
To the sleep that you crave

As I face the darkness
To fade away
I stand alone
With all my regrets
Will I find the answers
As I fade away
I stand alone
For all eternity
