Heathen Machine Lyrics

Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. The Rising (1:19)
[Written by: K & Hicks]

Light turns to darkness hope to despair
The machine is rising the machine is rising
For me the light was so real a scar so hard to heal
Deception graced from blazing heavens eternal sin
Time stands forever unending dreams
Never Know the endning this is my fractured life
The machine is rising the machine is rising from within

Heathen machine...
2. Heathen Machine (6:35)
[Written by: Ritchie]

Find a way or make a way.
There's nothing sacred
Cut me off so amputate
What you created
Nothing here is made of stone
Where's it all gone wrong
Tear up the plastic corners
One by one now

Enter the kindred where have you been?
Welcome kindred come on in

Heaven stained is screaming lullabies around me
Catch my spirit freaking as it dies without me
Once inside there's nothing left
To activate your soul
The armoured hearts are melting
One by one now

Breath out so I can breath you in heathen machine
Heathen machine like no man can ever be
Now long before your walls fall in heathen machine
Without heart and soul
You're dead to the world
Stay heathen machine

I'm drawn towards the enemy
Leaning in in spite of me
Without a soul there's hollow hollow ground
Breaking up in front of me
Tearing the whole thing down.
3. I Wish You Were Here (7:14)
[Written by: Southern & Ritchie]

I. I can see. I can see everything from here
And I. I'm in the theatre of my mind
I'm plying every role and I wish you were here

Now you're lonely, lonely like the sun
Whose going to love you, why should anyone?
Can you bear to be the bearer of such things?
I don't believe that I believe it
And I'm afraid that I I'm afraid

I wish you were here
It's another kind of silence
In a world of screaming violence
I wish you were here

I wish you were here
Come and taste some rage
Come and open the cage
And I wish you could feel
What I can feel

Null and void not yet destroyed uneven
Contemplation never got it done
Unattached to any kind of reason
A soul assassination has begun

Tell saint Peter and the angels not to sing
It's another kind of silence
It's another kind of sin
4. Chemical Imbalance (5:15)
[Written by: Ritchie]

Feel the steel breeze
Maybe I've been kissed by angels
Ruby sky
The devil's playground maybe

I cannot compare to this
Beyond my wildest childhood wish
The grand design was never mine
This is what you made me

Rise above the chemical imbalance
If you're strong and if you're brave
Rise above the chemical imbalance
Are you master are you slave?

You're in two minds
Or are two minds in you?
And is this fractured life
The real thing or the flavour of?

Soul asylum inner space
The last eternal hiding place
I can't control what I don't own
This is what you made me
5. No Place Like Home (6:54)
[Written by: Ritchie]

So silent so free of everything
So softly the bindings fall
So very close to ending
So silent forever more

No angels no stairway no welcome no sanctuary
So evil so empty no place no stay
This is not my heaven but it's closer than too far
And it's not forever 'cos it's burning
There's a whole new danger
There's fear of where you are
This is not my heaven so far

This is no place like home
Persistance of time
And visions of my own destiny come back to me
This is no place like home
Nothing rings true nothing I do
Can cahnge the sacred heart in me and you

Why trust me just be me
One world and we're history
No sunlight no shadow no place to be
This is not my heaven but it's here before my eyes
Are we hell's own neighbour 'cos it's burning
There's a hot wind blowing
And it takes your sould away
This is not my heaven today

So take me so far from everything
Surround me with nothing more
So many ways of ending
Be silent forever more.
6. The Eyes of All the World (6:46)
[Written by: Southern & Ritchie]

Enter a land where the sky still bleeds
Empowered to turn every mountain into sand
And fears to dreams
Falling from grace bears a price I've learned
Blinded by this you can dance in electric fields
Where the fires still burn

Still waiting holding on
Colder than grey colder than grey
Still waiting holding on
Drawn like a moth to the flame

Frozen utopia's slowly steaming
Only the touch of an angel can ever heal
The silent screaming
Sacrifice all of your hidden demons
Promise me this
Will you wade through the clouds of calm
And come to no harm?

Some things just have to be
What's meant for you will not pass you by
Some things are meant to be
Under and over the sky

The eyes of the world
Addiction is priceless they're watching and waiting
The eyes of the world
The blood that is raining is so entertaining
The murder in the skies is calling you calling calling
The eyes of the world
Addicted to pain and so blind to the warning.
7. Just Before You Leave (6:31)
[Written by: Ritchie, Southern & K]

Images of the world now make no sense
Noises fused without a warning
Open eyes it makes no difference
There's nothing there for me to see

Hear me forgive me
No answers can release your sorrow
Slowly drifting towards a stormy sea

I'll hold you stronger
Stay with me horizon's star
It bleeds from within you
And reveals what's left so far

Follow the dream
Unveil the secret fate within you
Slowly drifting taken away
Reach out for me

Just beyond the rain I'll be waiting
What I am trying to say
Is goodbye

Did you know just before you go
There's a deja-vu here
If I let you go now will you swear
You'll never leave again

Just before you leave
8. Wake Up Call (8:21)
[Written by: Southern & Ritchie]

What about here and now
The ever afters sitting on the big reveal
It's all about one defining moment
And I'm damned if I can pass it by
It's just the way I feel

Imitations of life are all I see
You'll be screaming at the walls
'til you break the crystal ball
Imitations of life are all I see
Random acts of circumstance
Are staining me draining

This is your wake up call don't let it get away
This is your wake up call it's been so long
This is your wake up call now open up your mind
This is your wake up call

Better than dead you are
Another day has come
And still you're staring at the stars
Maybe you missed your supernova
Like you missed the truth come over you
And now your ass is ours

Imitations of life are all I see
As blackness chokes your atmosphere
Is that crystal ball still clear?
Imitations of life is all I see
You only got one chance one chance to be.
9. Necessary Evil (7:46)
[Written by: Southern & Ritchie]

Sit down beside me let me feast upon your dreams
You can fill up all your emptiness from here
Tell me all about everything and ask me what it means
'cos I'm loaded with the things you want to hear

And if I see the invisible yeah I know it's impossible

It's a necessary evil

Underneath the pin pricked blanket if the purple sky
You can still make out the shadow of the stone
How high can feelings run with crutches by your side
And how brightly do you burn when you're alone?

And I feel the invisible yeah I know it's impossible
And I see the invisible yeah I know it's impossible

It's a necessary hunger
It's a necessary pain
It's a necessary craving
It's a necessary evil
It's a necessary lusting
It's a necessary bleeding
It's another kind of healing
It's a necessary evil

It's a necessary evil
Evil is all I have.
