The Forsaken Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 방구석
1. Rites of Death (4:14)
Rites of death Rites of undeath We're falling We're falling down

Itold you we're into deep

Transfer life into what's dead The act of humans playing God

Redoing the acts of medieval Witchcraft and the worship of dead

We're falling, we're fallingdown From our throne, so supposedly high When we confront the power great The might of our own creator

Transfer life into what's dead The act of human playing God

Redoing the acts of medieval Witchcraft and the worship of dead

The rites of undeath Is the testament of our own death
2. Old Times Cruelty (3:56)
Enter the halls of distant memory Feel your previous actions once again Your lies and deceit Your hate and long lost love

Walk through the hallway of your past Sense evil, like a whip from beyond The doors keep on forever Possibility is endless

Wander through one of the bronze-covered doors And feel the weaves of old times cruelty Run from the darkness, the endless void And get yourself cornered by the demons of fear

Running and screaming though these ancient halls The presence of something unseen carries on

Of old times cruelty The past haunts you Of old time cruelty ...Save Me...

The regrets of all actions that you've done before Has now turned it's way back to you

The demons from the past Haunts your soul Walk though the hallway of your past Sense the evil, like a whip from beyond The doors keep on forever Possibility is endless
3. Via Dolorosa (5:09)
Your ideals are wicked and deceiving How can you find peace You seek the righteous, but find the void

Die by the sword or live by the book Glimpse your death within the scythe Seek the righteous, find the truth The book of eternal youth

Of generations Cold as stone, you wander still Awaiting your inevitable death Your quest has ended where it began

But is there really alife for me Is there a place to Dwell Pleasures of the flesh Via Dolorosa

Of fear and despair, you've wandered Of hatred and grief, you've slaughtered I've seen you in your darkest hour Iknow you as myself

But is there really alife for me...

Via dolorosa, Memento Mori!

In you I've found my nothing In you I can't hide my pain In you my love has gone In you I've kept my cold

Captor of sin, you've stolen my past Via Dolorosa I've wasted my life for you

My hate you create My blood is water My life means nothing My warmth has vanished
4. Raade (3:28)
(instrumental)
5. The Crown I Carry (4:52)
The grip no longer holds When passion abandons The bonds no longer clutch And the rope screams your name

A path of daggers But where to step A hallway of illusions Of what was

Duty heavy as a mountain The battle draws near Your shoulders carry many Still death seems remarkably void

You wonder fate in lack of faith What you consider luck, may be Gods will A wanderer of the light will never die Before God give his approval

A path of daggers...

The crown I carry as an aura above me Is the proof of who my saviour truly is

My mute cries overheard My blindness is seen My tears washed away My feebleness became my strength

Duty heavy as a mountain The battle draws near Your shoulders carry many Still death seems remarkably void

You wonder fate in lack of faith What you consider luck, may be Gods will A wanderer of the light will never die Before God give his approval

A path of daggers...

When love is lost, only hate will remain
6. Betrayed (4:21)
Iam inpain Iam the cursed one

Life isn't what it was meant to be What Ididn't ask for has now turned my way Somewhere in a garden it all turned wrong Things I once believed in have now turned evil

Yet I pray, 'deliver me from evil' But another spell pulled me away

Will suicide break the ring of curse Or is there just another hell waiting out there

Will suicide break the ring of curse Tomorrow I'll be gone, do don't look for me

Iam lying on my death-bed, with chaos in my mind My life took more than it gave

Betrayed and deceived I will now pass away And with the gun in my hand, my questions Are soon to be answered

Will suicide break the ring of curse...

Satan and god, the thought passes my mind Heaven and hell, it's not up to me But if the Christians that I've seen Represent the true god of heaven Then it's not a place that I want to be But if I'm blinded, please open my eyes And help me now...

Will suicide break the ring of curse Tomorrow I'll be gone, then you'll be all alone
7. Vale of Tears (5:52)
The assembler of souls absorbs all within his reach His seemingly perpetual glance of doom would even make the smallest of serenities breach As he rides the wind being the ghost of doom

Running darkness all around A knife in her hand

Falling, rising, screaming the name of her beloved

So weak, and so weary Something blackening her thoughts A cloud, aforce, a weight

Finding her true love lying in red Is this reality or just a vision in her head

To be the knife as well as the wound Is all that concerns her

Overwhelmed by a burden, like hordes of fear The obscurity of the vale of tears Grasping for safety, which lies all so near Incresent malice of the vale of tears

Wandering oblivious in the foggy twilight Shades of an obelisk shines so bright Incredulous thoughts, bewildering her mind Is there really a god to find

Halting through the darkest of forests The obese and extraneous at her tail This haunting, lingering to the extreme She is about to quail

Then a formless mass of black, went skyward Stars began to fade behind a veil of dark blue velvet She stopped, she listened, nothing Silence, an eternity passed

The silhouettes of something unseen, a presence
8. The Return (4:47)
The art of the Y Is the excellence of X Corroding is for autumn Renewing is for spring

The art of the Y Is the excellence of X Corroding is for autumn Renewing is for spring

Recovering of the dead Impossible for the living The making of a copy Is destruction of mankind

The earth is in it's autumn The leaves have hit the ground Corroding this earth is dying Not knowing, you'll face the end

The coming of Christ Is the return of X The art of the Y Is in the new spring
9. As I Die (4:51)
My hand in the open wound The knife clutches near The blood of my veins spread out My flesh becomes soiled

This desperate act of loss The pain of knowing why My mind slips into a blur Upcoming questions...As Idie

Forever in search of the truth Ifind myself puzzled

Don't you feel the urge The passionate flow The endless collision Of purity and evil

Since we're of the flesh We are to realize That mankind must end If purity will prevail

Forever in search of the truth Ifind myself puzzled ...As I die

Don't you feel the urge The passionate flow The endless collision Of purity and evil

Since we're of the flesh We are to realize That mankind must end If purity will prevail

Death is my goal/Death, set me free In my living hell I can no longer be Please bring me back home Where i can be free
