Of the Son and the Father Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Cloudbreaker (3:31)
We've been running out of time
You've been eating up our minds
But we always try to get a little higher
You've been told of in the tale
How you heal what we create
Like a fool in the sea of desire

No freedom, no pride, no joy
We must rife: burn the ice

[Chorus:]
Left to genocide
Bit the cloudbreaker's coming to find
Searching a sign from the rimes
The cloudbreaker's always around
Watching the world from the sky

Someone said life is a game
It's like pleasure versus pain
Open up your eyes and see the world in daylight
Cause they laugh at human race
And they spit you in your face
Realize they're only prophet's in a world of lies

They rule in the name of God:
Bring 'em down, melt their crown
2. Of the Son and the Father (4:56)
We look upon the man of twilight
Forever damned to holy ground
Behind the walls it's black, but evil shines
And none can leave until it's done

Strangers in our eyes
They walk in shaped of God
Hear me now, cast away your pride

[Chorus:]
Be wise, hear the unholy rime
Loud and clear of the Son and the Father
Inside the sanctum of crime be wise
In the name of the Father he lies

The momentary act of treason
Against the sacred calf he found
Sent off the biggest rock, to roll the world
And I won't stop until it's done

Stranger in your eyes
They walk in shapes of God
Hear me now, cast away your pride
3. Hungry People (3:40)
They are the hungry children, dying before our eyes
I dry their frozen tears, I won't let them down

Ten thousand screaming out
Calling out my name

[Chorus:]
We cry: we cry for the children of mankind
We cry: we cry for the nature that we found
The hungry people

The world is moving faster, spinning round and round
We're bound to meet disaster, high above the ground

Which one is innocent?
Of the greed we share

All my nights, I could hear their cries for life
I'm a loser: I am no one I am praying down the line

[Solo]

It's hard to pray for someone and to justify
I dry their frozen tears and I won't let them down

Ten thousand screaming out
Calling out your name
4. Slay the Dragon (3:39)
Way gone 'bout a thousand years
Ancient Lullaby
Kings and Queens and evil scenes
Darkness filled their minds
Fury and rage from the sky
How could they live just to die

[Chorus:]
Slay the dragon: kill the beast
Power knight of heavenly might
Slay the Dragon: join the feast
It's not human, save us now
We all know that you're divine

Brave Saint John Stood all alone
Offspring sent from Hell
Brimstone, fire, smoke and cries
In this medieval tale

Armoured by God he came to ride
Blessed with a sword to save the bride

[Chorus:]
Slay the Dragon: kill the Beast
Power knight prepared to fight
Slay the Dragon: join the feast
It's not human, save us now
We all know that you're divine
5. Ocean of Sand (3:52)
Don't come out of your bunker
It's your dungeon,and your hell
Chasing the rainbow you searched all your life
The cradle of time, no one to sanctify

Arabian nights, the oriental ways
But still they shine on

[Chorus:]
Freedom's not found on the trail out of tears
And no one should live as a slave
You can not fight 'gainst your deepest of fears
It's written by nature of man
In the ocean of sand

Now you say you're Messiah,
None can just were you dwell
Searching the mountain, they seek underground
Hate are forever and traitors must die

Arabian nights, nomad affairs
True believers

[Chorus]
6. In Prison For Life (4:13)
In prison for life, the price to pay
For holding the knife, that gruesome day
In prison for life, I live to die
I'm in prison, in prison for life

Facing Armageddon
Violent revelation
Why? Can't someone tell me how?
Be merciful and mild
It's terminal, there's no way back

I'm on the run, the run now, babe
Can't you see that if true

Well, I'm in prison for life, I had to pay
For holding the knife, that gruesome day
In prison for life, I live to die
Lost all my rights
I'm in prison, in prison for life

Come here, humanizer
Blue sky, new horizons
I was crawling, I was drained
Sent shockwaves through my brain
Eternal dark, forever lost

And oh, I'm slipping away, away now babe
Now, can't you see it's true

I'm standing alone, alone now, babe
So let me die in piece

'cause I'm in prison for life, the price to pay
For holding the knife, that gruesome day
In prison for life, I live to die
Lost all my rights
I'm in prison, in prison for life
7. The Trojan Horse (4:36)
Facing the world with polluted eyes
Diving to see who I am!
Falling from grace now oblivion
Sail out: fade out

[Chorus:]
My bleeding eyes, only blind men
You're a serpentine: minds game: fools game

Behind the walls from the gospel
The field of gold, must be lost here
As I am deeper than down
Lead me to embrace, or I will die
Climbing to God in a desperate way
Longing the day when I die
Biding my time in the Trojan horse
Some day, some way

[Chorus:]
In the burning sun: only blind men
What is to be won? Minds games fools game

A light ablaze in the open
The ghouls of pain are awoken
But I will follow the road
Away from Babylon, or I will die

Raising my voice for wooden majer
Breaking my back for the master taker
Running along through the flood of life
Locked in a horse, but you can't hold me out

Working my time in the mortal chamber
Surrounded by walls of amber
Rushing along, though the system failed
This Trojan horse is mine, I can not be
8. Burn Down the Wheel (3:33)
A cold winter night, the moon gave us light
No, no, no, no, no
Salves to desire, no fear in our eyes
Something tells me, no

Gave away our souls to the maker
Made a deal with the taker
To be or not to be

[Chorus:]
Burn down the wheel, burn down the wheel
Like a star in the night made of steel
Burn down the wheel, burn down the wheel
I go higher, with no wire, Is this for real?
Burning down the wheel

The game of the chase, get down with the race
Down, down, down, down, down
This madness of power, to rule and devour
Down, it'll drag you down

We're slave out of speed, made of fire
Were born on the road,and we'll die there
I'm free, we all are free

[Chorus]
9. Night of the Witch (3:45)
What's another broken bone?
Another life to spill
There's lady in black who feeds the darkness,
High up on the hill

Burn her: stone her
They know what not to do
Kill her: take her
She's crying over you

[Chorus:]
She'll burn alive for the people with no souls
Who doesn't try
She's burning alive
Do they cry?
When they realized they never asked her why
She's burning
She's burning alive

Caught inside this evil dream,
With this vicious love machine
Sucking life from our senses,
It's a game that just can't win

Stab her: Rob her
Her time is running out
Ban her: Break her
She's crying in the night

[Chorus]
10. Rainbow in Your Mind (3:50)
There's a story to be told and it is always on my mind
And don't you tell me that I'm wrong
'cause it's all I ever dreamed about

Move out of my way
I'll be there to synchronise
And I got nothing to say today
Well.I'm the one and I'm the strong

[Chorus:]
Let me be your lover and your friend
Tell me why you're leaving, where did I go wrong
Take me now make me understand
Am I clear, how many times must I try?
Until I find: the Rainbow in your mind

I remember years ago
How used to spend my nights
Couldn't see what's going on
That you were made a running man

Whenever you pay I will be your merchandise
You were dreaming of yesterday
But I'm the one and I'm the strong

This world is built on jealousy
Fakes and frauds are hurting me
I'm just glad to be alive
Oh, baby
11. Man on the Rock (3:03)
If there's a sweet heartbreaker
You'd really try to make her
You're a loaded son of a gun
Go if your ground is shaking
And everyone is quaking
I will never, never, never let you down

Rock 'n' roll was made for children
For the kids in the heat of the night
In Rock we trust, you'll never stand alone

[Chorus:]
I'm the Man on the rock
The man on the rock
like Jesus Christ

If you come up to my mountain to visit the apostle
You'll be King though just for a day
And there'll be music playing
While everyone is praying
And I will never be the one to let you down

Rock 'n' roll was made for children
For the kids in the heat of the night
The Astral cries, like echoes in the night
