Astralism Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. EVP
[Johansson / Nordlund]

A strange noise, this can not be right
I toss and I turn, I live and I learn
Lost and lonely tomorrow
Now my bliss and my sorrow
Who's to blame? The soul enterprise

A fool's trial behind enemy lines
With no lawyer
My demons are for real

White noise
Stuck in the twilight zone
I dream in white
White noise
Electric voices; lost in paradise

Won't leave you behind, I still hear the sigh
Waves in the air, the devil may care
Are you real or illusion?
Got no final conclusion
A minefield; the godforsaken side

A brave long ride, won't lead you
Through nothing but sorrow
And men aren't made of steel

White noise
Stuck in the twilight zone
I dream in white
White noise
Electric voices; lost in paradise

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

A brave long ride, won't lead you
Through nothing but sorrow
And men aren't made of steel
A fool's trial behind enemy lines
With no lawyer
My demons are for real

Why? Why did you have to die?

I still can hear
White noise
Stuck in the twilight zone
I dream in white
White noise
Electric voices
Lost in paradise

You can't kill what's already dead
2. Black Rain
[Johansson / Haglund / Nordlund]

Fly away; Enola Gay
Carrying the bomb of judgement day
In their minds they knew it too well
Angels sent from hell
The empire strikes; pacific suprise
Harbour's on fire, a fatal advice
Victory; the world is at stake
A bound that no one could break

Land of the rising sun
Everyone; waiting for the rain
Atomic clouds
Black Rain
Black Rain
Hiroshima; drowning in Black Rain

A burning child; still alive
Seek the river; for the final dive
Bodies floating out to the sea
Into eternity
All lost in flames, panic and pain
The day turned to night, but here comes the rain
They all drank to borrow some time
Radiated cries

Home of the Samurai
They're warriors; waiting for the rain
Atomic clouds
Black Rain
Black Rain
Hiroshima; drowning in Black Rain
Hiroshima
Black Rain
Hiroshima

[Solo: Haglund]

Land of the rising sun
Everyone; waiting for the rain
Atomic clouds
Black Rain
Nuclear dust
Black Rain: they saw it coming down
Black Rain: over Hiroshima
Black Rain, coming from heaven
Drinking in the Black Rain
3. London Caves
[Johansson/ Lindstedt / Nordlund]

In a world of terror

Well, he's a man on a mission; he's sent from Allah
Longing for the glory in Shangri-La
Got God on his side; no one can take him away
He's glorious, he said

Viva the revolution
I know I will be born again
Long live mass confusion
I'm a martyr
Hidden in the London caves
Hidden in the London caves
In the caves of London

I'm a guy with a message, turn on the news
Children of the west; here's the Baghdad blues
There's a bomb in my bag;
Our justice is going to blow you away
I'm glorious, he said

Viva the revolution
I know I will be born again
Long live mass confusion
I'll be a legend, you'll have to face

Terror down under ground in the London caves
Hidden down under ground in the London caves
I will never be found in the London caves
Man of God

[Solo: Nordlund]

I'm a man on a mission, I'm blessed by Allah
Longing for the glory in Shangri-La
Got a bomb in my bag; my justice will blow you away
I'm glorious, I say

Viva the revolution
I know I will be born again
Long live mass confusion
London town under ground
Viva the revolution
I know I will be born again
Long live mass confusion
I'll have a place by the master's side

Terror down under ground in the London caves
Hidden down under ground in the London caves
I will never be found in the London caves
Never
I will never be found
I'm a guy with a message
Hidden in the London caves
4. From Satan With Love
[Johansson / Haglund / Nordlund]

It's wrong; it's right
You will explode like dynamite
For real; you're sodomized
I am an evil boy
My music shall be played loud
Running with the greyhound
I'm hard; stakes are high
Looking for the manna coming out of the sky

I'm waiting for you all the time

Signed; sealed; delivered
Rise of the figure
Here's from Satan with love

More snow to find
You are a mountain I must climb
No rules for the anti Christ
I sank Noah's Ark
Dying in the playhouse
Tell me why I'm spellbound
My way; the rebel to pay
Whole lotta shaking on the tip of my tongue

Your makeup is the devil's mark

Signed; sealed; delivered
Rise of the figure
Here's from Satan with love

I'll rise up from the ashes
I'll steal away from your cries
From darkness I am coming of
Don't put, don't put me down

[1st solo: Haglund]
[2nd solo: Nordlund]

Signed; sealed; delivered
Rise of the figure
Whole lotta shaking on the tip of my tongue
Signed; sealed; delivered
Rise of the figure
Here's from Satan with love
5. Fire In Our House
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

About to begin but clouds made of sin
Announced that the building's on fire
Met up with the band; we couldn't understand
Systems now red alert
We looked at a funeral pyre

A song for the starlight
Tumbling down; but why;

There's a fire in our house; no sun at night
A fire in our house
They scream; there's a fire in our house
I saw the light; a fire in our house
Some dude's burned the place to the ground

Went out for a jam it was seven pm
Rehearsed for the tour of our life
Too much of the smoke
Some said: Now we're broke
We'd better off to immigrate
Before it is all too late

A song for the victims of pyromania

There's a fire in our house; I saw the light
A fire in our house
They scream; there's a fire in our house
It's burning down; a fire in our house
That dude burned it down to the ground

A Molotov cocktail through the window
The world must be mad
Fighting the fire with fire

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

So hear what I say; where are your feelings?
What have you done? There's a fire in our house

Me and the boys; we looked through the funeral pyre
A song for the starlight
Tumbling down but why?

There's a fire in our house; no sun at night
A fire in our house
They scream; there's a fire in our house
I saw the light; a fire in our house
Fire in our house
I saw our place burn down to the ground
6. Israel
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

Who's to stand when the rocks are rolling?
Who's to dance around the golden calf?
Will the slaves now rule the masters?
In the bloodstained holy land

Shalom; look at yourself
The kingdom won't rise again
A phantom's eyes; a new thrown dice
La'olam; who's king of the kings?

Israel, Israel
Israel; time will always foretell

And Palestine looks for resurrection
The pearly gates closing down
Don't steal from your brother
On my cross I see a world that is turning

Arise; chains ever crack
Outcast in desert land
You can not escape the execrate
Messiah; they'll never forgive

Israel, Israel
Israel; time will always foretell

My soul is burning
It's burning
My world is turning

Behold Israel
You know we cry for you
And then we look into
A phantom eyes; a new thrown dice
Shalom; the kingdom won't rise again
David's star and what we are
Arise; who's king of the kings?
7. Raiders Of The Ark
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

Hail Mother Mary, the right way is scary
Stay out; I will beware
Hail Mother Mary, the loving and caring
I stand on the edge of the stair
Fast rolls on the wheels to the future so bright
We're struck; we are

The raiders of the ark
The race is on
Raiders of the ark
I know it's a pity; the lack of desire now

An urge for salvation, alarming for the nation
Fraud is everywhere
Eternal damnation, abusing the treasure
The gospels in the air
Sacred my task though we're leaving this earth
Fall out, we are

The raiders of the ark
The race is on
Raiders of the ark
I know it's a pity; the lack of delight

Blessed be thy child in the black of the night
The spirit's still alive
Shelter from the world never doing what is right
We fear the dark; we're raiders of the ark

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

I cry for the human race
Left another trace
Looking for the ark an endless race
We see but we are blind
Guess we'll never find
The treasure with the rimes
'Cause we walk on the water, we play it again
Too late; we are

The raiders of the ark
The race is on
Raiders of the ark
Rain and fire; taking me higher
Ice and snow; take me home
You know we are searching in the dark
Raiders of the ark
8. Tears From A Titan
[Johansson / Nordlund / Roberg]

Here I'm lying with the dying

This is a song about a crime, we must tell it again and again
The people cry; revolution, but no one dares
From a whisper in the leaves to the breeze off the ocean
Domino effect when the avalanches start to roll

Look inside the magic ball and show me what is wrong
You're a mystery woman; magic man; you're mesmerized

[Chorus:]
Who'll be there when a titan cries?
With tooth and nail they fight
And they're defending the rights; the light
Some blood must be spilled
In the games when a titan cried
You will see the dictator die
Who'll be king of the Reich of blood?
Tears from a titan

To the master we begged for our lives; one more night
No remorse, executions or fire-might
Mess around get him down; biding time in the wolf's lair
What's another mile? Freedom's closer now

No more concentration camps; burn them to the ground
Cast a spell on the devils hands, the evil eye

[Chorus]

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

Tyranny goes on, father and the son
Prophecies are wrong, no one's here to deliver
Bloody serenade, dying is the aid
Tears from a titan
On and on and on, father and the son
Prophecies are wrong, no one's here to deliver
Bloody serenade, dying is the aid
Tears from a titan
Titan cries; who'll be there when a titan cries?
I will
Titan cries; from the eyes of evil

[Chorus]

Who'll be here when a titan cries?
9. Oliver Twist
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

Now listen here
Night is young a moonlit sky
Time to meet the crowd
Union makers of the wild
Into the void out of the sun
Stronger than clever

Power hour in the tower
Life is in a rage
Why? We'll never take a bow
That's our pride

For the king and the queen
We are the soldiers
Now it's time to save our souls
There's always a chance to battle the evil
Out of the light, ride into the mist
Like Oliver Twist

Who's that demon in my head?
A spectre from the past
Fingers crossed, I wonder why
Ain't going to kneel; don't want to be steel
Pick pocketing boys

Life is not an opera, no
Far from the grace
Filth; a life amount the rays
No way

For the king and the queen
We are the soldiers
Now it's time to save our souls
There's always a chance to battle the evil
Never retire; raise your fighting fist
Like Oliver Twist
Oliver Twist
For the king and the queen

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

Power hour in the tower
Far from the grace
Why? We'll never take a bow
That's pride

For the king and the queen
We are the soldiers
Now it's time to save our souls
There's always a chance to battle the evil
Out of the light, right into the mist

Like Oliver Twist
10. Vendetta
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

I've sworn the oath upon my family grave
I'm dragging you under,
Spirits wander; meet your pain
If you cry as your die
I'll just remind those you fooled with your lies

I know you would like to stab me from behind
It is payback time, so run but you can't hide

[Chorus:]
So don't you stand in my way, I don't want you to stay
My truth is not your lie
Beware if you care, but you can't prepare
Forsaken; the pride
I came to a point of no return, someone's got to burn
Go down, down, down to a warmer place
Revenge for human race

Hey, home boy; you're nothing but a fake
I remember your laughter, the moment after
My soul was raped
But who's laughing now?
The old sun is now colder than ice

Won't be screaming out for vengeance anymore
I've been playing the game enough to change the score

[Chorus]

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

I sworn the oath upon my family grave
I'm dragging you under,
Spirits wander; hope you're afraid
Had a gun under my pillow; now it's gone
The vendetta's now completed, guess I won

[Chorus]

You're a disgrace; you're a fraud; I'll meet your face
The vengeance is mine; you are no friend of mine
11. The Green Mile
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

The sentenced:
Forgive me father for I have sinned

Killed another man
Blood upon my hands
I followed the cold winds
Tracked down by the arm of the law

The warder:
Look at the man you are
We'll switch off your life, it's gone too far
From here there's no escape
And in the death now you're bound to loose
Your one and only wire
More fuel to the pure

The sentenced:
I'm on the green mile trying to get out
Electrical ride into the light

The warder:
And on the green mile you'll never be alone
The guards are there beside you

The sentenced:
So read me my last rites
Give me just one sign
Soon I've paid my crime
Banished out of heaven
Old sparky will make me go down
And after the monsters ball
The rookie's prepared to do it all
This is my last goodbye
The executioner; the lord of might

You are my only saviour
Tried hard to be braver

I'm on the green mile trying to get out
Electrical ride into the light

The Prison Chaplain:
On the green mile you'll never be alone
An angel flies above you

Green mile
Walk the green mile
Green mile

[Solo: Haglund]

Use your only wire
More fuel to the pyre
I'm here to die
I'm on the green mile trying to get out
Out of the cell, into the light
On the green mile you'll never be alone
The guards are there beside you
I'm on the green mile trying to get out
Electrical ride into the light
And on the green mile you'll never be alone
Now electrified, the lightning ride

Walk the green mile
12. In Rock We Trust
[Johansson / Nordlund]

Dear Mr devil, your songs were right
Music for the children of the night
Try to learn? Who wants to live forever?
Stay up late until the sunrise
Madness across the town
I see angels fly
A fire in the sky

In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Play loud; no one can break us
In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Rock hard; in rock we trust

Dear Mr devil, you gave the sign
A revelation to open up their minds
To be alive is to be filled with anger
Behold the allied forces
Soldiers in front the stage
We are denim knights
Go higher, realize

In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Play loud; no one can break us
In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Rock hard; 'cause in rock we trust

For rock we live; for rock we die
In rock we trust

[1st solo: Nordlund]
[2nd solo: Haglund]

Attack; the allied forces
Madness across the town
You know we are denim knights
Go higher, realize

In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Play loud; no one can break us
In rock we trust; in rock we trust
We stand for what we are
In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Play loud; none is a faker
In rock we trust; in rock we trust
Rock hard; in rock we trust
13. Apocalypse Revealed
[Johansson / Lindstedt / Nordlund]

Sail away on a ship across the sea
Sail away to the dreams you still believe
But you'll never; never ever find home

Wrong; they all are wrong
I've seen the future virtualized
A vision of doom; no place to run
Fraud, life is a fraud
They are the cult of the cross
Deliver us, enemies of sanctuary

I've tried so many times to learn about the dark
The end of days I feel; apocalypse revealed
Say you will be the one to break the seventh seal
A study in black; it's the last appeal
Apocalypse revealed

Out of your cell you might discover
That there's a psychic tower
Deep inside of everyone
It's out of our sight, erased the sun
Chains; it still remains
No more invisible trails, God has failed
Buried with his foolish pride

Pale's the faceless driver out of seven mortal lies
My future is surreal; apocalypse revealed
Say you will be the one to break the seventh seal
The final eclipse; it's the last appeal
Apocalypse revealed

Freedom at last
Heathen hearts, you fools must bow

[Solo: Nordlund]

Falling down from your spot in universe
Faded out; after this it won't be worse
But we'll never, never ever
Take that they are wrong, they all are wrong
They are the cult of the cross
Deliver us; enemies of sanctuary

I've tried so many times
To learn about the dark
The end of days I feel; apocalypse revealed
Say you will be the one to break the seventh seal
A study in black; it's the last appeal
Apocalypse

Take me to the river and tomorrow's shore
Travel me through tunnels in the mines of war
Apocalypse, the last eclipse
Lead me from temptations from a world of flesh
Mental incarnation; will it stand in the test of time?
Apocalypse revealed; apocalypse is here
