Instinct Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Triumph (0:40)
2. Legacy (3:34)
This procession goes on and on
Disillusion is getting the best of me, but still I try
And I try – with all that I have only to find that
I’m digging my own grave now
Where I finally sleep under the legacy of
The undying obsolete
This won’t be the end and I will change this position
Where I have no control
And turn the tables back

Only rats flee a sinking ship
Men of honor stay aboard
To mend broken boards and sail on
Obtain the vision that they seek
Manifesting their own prophecies
Leave the weak in the wake of perpetual regret

We’ll rebuild and we will prevail – the wait is over

Relief from this pain comes from learning to
Start all over again
We’ll rebuild and prevail

And we will silence all those
Silence those who oppose
And we will silence
Silence those, silence those who oppose

While you sit and stare at the rising sun
Never knowing what lies beyond the horizon
You’re digging your own grave now

Buried in unending darkness
You choose to wait and live your life
In fear of the challenge
Never to witness daylight again
3. Resist (3:00)
We will overcome, we will overcome
Climb this mountain we face
We'll push through everything
Without
Without a reason to move
There is no living
Resist, resist the forces that drain
We carve our own path
Create our own way
Resist, the easy way out
There are no shortcuts through this maze of life
Burdened, but we will succeed
On the path that we've created
Make a decision
The choice changes everything
Commit yourself
There is no turning back
Overcome
And make this moment count
Make this moment count, make this moment count
Within each one of us
There's a coward and a king
Practice what you preach
To become what you believe
It's visible on the surface but not underneath
Now you can see perception is reality
It's all or nothing, you only have one life to live
Always remember
To remain on your path
And resist what holds you back
(We will overcome)
To remain on your path
(Move on)
And resist what holds you back
(Overcome)
4. Angel City Gamble (3:36)
The Struggle!
Resistance on the heels of our climb
But without struggle we'll never learn to rise!
Above and see beyond the preconceived
What's in front of your eyes is only lies
...Unless you choose to believe!

BREAK AWAY!
FROM THOSE WHO IMPEDE!
CUT ALL THE TIES!
BREAK AWAY!
AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!!

RISK.IT.ALL!!!!!
Find solace in uncertainty
Now is the time!
to make a move!, defy the odds!

In the face of adversity we reach for the sky
Hesitations no longer allowed
Today's the day to attempt the impossible!

Sever the voice that hinders!!
And follow your Instincts!!

WILL YOU PURSUE?!
WILL YOU. PURSUE?!?!
WILL YOU PURSUE?!?!
An easy way out or a road less traveled?
The solution can be found within you!
An easy way out or a road less traveled?
The solution can be found within you!

BREAK AWAY!
FROM THOSE WHO IMPEDE
CUT ALL THE TIES
BREAK AWAY
AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!!!

And if you want to succeed...
You must Risk It All

Do not fear the failures
Stay clear from the trails of the heard
This Time - TIME WILL NOT BE WASTED!!
AND IF YOU FALL STAY DETERMINED TO STAND!!!!!!
5. Reborn (3:11)
Undo the chains of the past that are holding you back
Reclaim all that has been taken away from you
Deconstruct the walls in your mind that are making you blind

Break free from negativity that will shadow your life
Search for a reason to change
Life reveals itself when the decision is made
To move on and let go
It will help you unravel this road
You must – you must seek the truth

Seek the truth

Waiting for something to change
But what stands in the way is your hopeless
Outlook of reality
Deconstruct the walls in your mind that
Are making you blind

Break free from negativity that will shadow your life
Search for a reason to change
Life reveals itself when the decision is made
To move on and let go
It will help you unravel this road

See your way through

Self corruption manifests the darkest days
That man has ever seen
But the disappearing sun is controlled by you

Just believe in yourself
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
See your way through

Realize that the past is now left behind
That is where it belongs
Realize that the past is now left behind
Don’t forget where you’re from

Embrace the change – this is where you belong
6. Tribulations (1:47)
7. Divided (3:02)
You’re torn inside
You don’t know which voice to believe
Indecision will leave you with nothing
Why even try when you think you know all the answers?
When you just sit there rotting away
Do you know the difference between knowledge
And understanding?

Tribulations – denial in the face of the end
Endure the suffering and reinvent yourself
You’re mindless – it’s undermining your efforts
To improve on the life that you lead

Your perception is clouded by the minds of the infected
Your perception is clouded by the lies of the infected

Will their lies be believed?
Or will they crumble?

The unholy battle within one can leave you
Can leave you begging on your knees
For a chance to breath
You must disconnect from reality for
Just a moment of internal peace
Is the mind your ally or enemy?
In the end it all comes down to the eyes
In which you choose to see through

Let go of the thoughts that drag you straight to your fucking knees
And shed the skin of ignorance and assumptions

Confined within your mind lies the reasons why
You’re in this bind – with no way out!

There’s no way out!

Failure is hard to swallow when your eyes are closed
Know that it might be the last time that
You can make this right
You’ll find your way out
8. King of Thieves (3:34)
Reclaim the kingdom that we all have built!
With our own calloused and broken hands
We've tried (WE'VE TRIED!) to mend the cracks
But it's slowly becoming a erect dystopia

...Like leeches extracting from the harvest
Depleting our resources
They keep taking away!

Enslaved in our own kingdom
We feed the King Of Thieves - Seek Liberation
We keep giving the gift of blood
And sweat for nothing
A stab in the back

Forever Imprisoned!!!!!!

A disgrace to the domain you keep
An embarrassment to the throne
You left us with no choice
We must overthrow - Take the crown!!

We are past the point of understanding
No longer under your reign of corruption!
We will not serve you!

Never again allowed to hold us back

It's your choice, It's your choice to abide or
Watch the world pass you by
False pretenses only makes you blind

It's only making you blind.
9. In Honor (3:05)
We are the ones that fight for freedom
United we stand
We walk through hell for you
And we are (we are) the protectors
Risking everything we have
Who will you look to when everything you know
Starts to crumble?

Enough is enough

Clinging to your memories
Will you dream of me or will I be forgotten?
Remember me

And when the struggle and the sacrifice
Becomes too great to bare
That’s when I look to the sky to discover who I am
And the reasons why I chose to let it all go
But I didn’t know that the cost would be so great
Do I leave it all behind and forget what I know?
Will I ever learn not turn to my back on the face of evil?

I only hope that someone’s watching over me
As I look my demons in the eyes, I wonder why I’m still here

We are the ones that fight for freedom
United we stand
We walk through hell for you
And we are (we are) the protectors
Risking everything we have
Who will you look to when everything you know
Starts to crumble?

Never forget, we will never forget

Remember
Those who sacrificed their lives
And honor – the legacy they left behind
Cherish their memories
Deliverance from this nightmare

We command you our brothers
Have courage and be strong
Awaiting your return for far too long
Welcome home!
10. Echoes of an Era (4:02)
In these desperate days where anything goes
We must take back control of this world
This is our time and the time is now
These are the echoes of an era

Remove the barriers – tear this place down
We will succeed where our ancestors failed
Their decline is the start of our rise
The new beginning has arrived

We are the ones that will inherit this earth
With all the problems they’ve left behind – witness the cleansing
And rid this place of the infection that fed on the minds of the weak

We are the ones – that will one day inherit this earth
With all the problems they’ve left behind – witness the cleansing

The time is now – we are next in line to lead this world

What will you do when there’s no one left to turn to
And all you have left is yourself?
Do you have what it takes to handle the responsibility?

When everything you’ve known is gone
Reach outside of your circle
Dividing lines shattered to pieces by a will to unite
In this age we live in of mass communication
There’s no limitation on what we can achieve

We are the ones – that will one day inherit this earth
With all the problems they’ve left behind
Witness the cleansing

Will you learn from their mistakes?
Or will you be your own demise?
Looking down at their graves
We can rest in peace now
11. Instinct (3:48)
I knew that this was the last thing
This was the last thing that I had to prove
Have all my struggles amused you?
This was the hardest thing to do
I chewed through the chains
With broken teeth in my mouth I was finally free
Free in my own mind (free in my own mind)
But I was always trapped inside

I will escape from this cage and extend my broken wings
I will escape from this cage and extend my wings

I walked out on everything that I ever knew and now
And now I find myself cold and alone
Searching for strength
The strength to stand on my own two feet
Approaching the edge, taking the leap
A leap of faith with my broken wings

As I rise to my feet I realize
I should be standing up for myself
Why haven’t you? What do you have to lose?
When there is so much to gain

I will escape from this cage and extend my broken wings
I will escape from this cage and extend my wings

Why haven’t you? What do you have to lose?
When there is so much to gain
