The Rise of the Serpent Men Lyrics

(6)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Never Ending Winter (2:31)
2. Hellstorm (5:41)
It never rains
Unless it pours
Catch your death
In the eternal storm
Eternal storm

Heavens open
The downfall
Soaked to the skin
Join the deathroll
Sound the deathbell

Hellstorm

Climb aboard
The death wagon
You can't escape
The rain

Hellstorm
3. Life Chain (4:22)
Recognise your chains

You create your own slavery
Masters forge the locks but...
You give them the key
Hoping your shackles rust in the rain
Your just another link in the life chain

Take control - life chain

Recognise your own potential
Break your bonds with your inner power
No amount of ties can hold you down
Throw away your mask

Take control - life chain

Recognise your chains

Take control of your life
Rip the head from your tormentor
Grind their bones to dust
Life chain... Rust

Take control - life chain
4. War Machine (6:07)
A red dawn
Turns to black
Another day of..
The war machine...
Machine

Waves of hate
Crash against the shore
Alone we swim in a
Sea of war
A child falls and screams
Under the weight of the war machine

Now at last we are as one
Although it means nothing anymore
Master and begger die as one
The final chapter in the final
War

To this twisted world i leave nothing of worth
Except my bones to litter this earth
In a land that has no sun, destroyed my home but who has

Won?

But who has won.. Won?
5. Evilution (5:37)
Progress? One step backwards
Look what we've done to our homes
Evolved? Regression, yes
We're now at full speed
And no one's in control

Forward? Technology bliss
But for all our knowledge
We know nothing
Heading towards a total halt
The beginning of the end
Has long since past

They came... And destroyed

Progress? One step backwards
Look what we've done to our homes
Evolved? Regression, yes
We're now at full speed
And no one's in control
6. Rise of the Serpent Men (6:41)
The serpent men led the sect
To the catheral
Falling over bodied of wars before
In the name of their master
MASTER

So they slayed and were slain
For the legacy of eternal life
Blind to the church's profligacy
Blind to their evil lies
LIES

The legacy of christ
Handed down to surpress again
The insane pave the way
The rise of the serpent men
SERPENT MEN
7. The Final War (5:42)
Looked up at the sky for the last time
So much to learn, now i never will
We screamed out in anger at their stupidity
A million souls cry out as one
So they finally sent them on their way
Cruising across the sky and...
Land

The world exploded in my head
The life blood poured from my veins
Arrival time... Zero!
We lay to waste our world

Now face to face with our exodus
We now curse our own apathy
Much to late to defend
We're doomed to see our planets end
So they finally sent them on their way
Cruising across the sky and...
Land

The world exploded in my head
The life blood poured from my veins
Arrival time... Zero!
We lay to waste our world
Our world

The final war
