The Physics of Fire Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Epoch Of War (The Physics of Fire Pt 3) (3:16)
The number of men who carried the flame continued to increase
And a massive force was gathered just outside the prison
Where the evil one had trapped the souls of men
And with a sounding trumpet
In an instant the siege was underway
The forces of humanity swarmed the enemy camp
They stormed the gates relentlessly
Waving their torches and shouting together
There is none that can stand against the power of fire
2. Immolation (5:29)
Oh the misery of my people
I' ve heard them crying out
Their lamentation
The deafening sound of sorrow
Clothed in anguish
They' ve been enslaved for generations
But now the time has come
I will deliver them
One fire burns within my soul
Consuming all of the doubt in my mind
Infusing my soul with purpose again
Awake from sleep my chosen people
Break the bonds of slavery and step out into new life
Hear the word spoken through flame
A fire that cannot be quenched
3. Autopsy (4:08)
If my body was broken open and you could look inside
Would you only find flesh
Just the useless parts of an obsolete machine
Would there be any sign of life
Or would you only find death
Would there be any evidence of a human soul trying to escape
If a flame once burned within this shell
Set me on fire one last time
Is there a clear division of soul and spirit marrow and joint
Can the human body still give you glory even in death
May the ashes tell the story of what work was done within
May my soul pause to witness as this body goes up in flame
Set me on fire
4. The Great Fall (4:10)
In the time before the great fall
The power of fire was known to man
Imparted at creation as a vital component of the human soul
And the only knowledge that the enemy did not possess
And the reason that he deceived humanity
Many ages have passed since that time
When the evil one made his pact
When men were yet ignorant to the truth and easily deceived
In exchange for the keys to knowledge
Mankind gave up their immortal souls
Corrupted by the enemy
The souls were held
Encased in ice
Indefinitely
5. Nocturne (3:19)
6. The Monolith (3:46)
I stood at the foot of the mountain
And watched the fire descend
The earth trembled
Smoke filled the air
I heard the sound of a trumpet
Calling me into the darkness
I ascended to the top of the mountain
I stood in the center of the flame
Yet I was not consumed
7. Construct And Collapse (4:59)
These are the times that try men' s souls
In this the age of obscurity
The world awaits its own demise and all creation cries out
Unleash your devastation
Like a pestilence throughout the land
Bring utter desolation
Let your judgment fall
Pour out your power
Pour out your wrath
Assail the gates of sin and death
And scatter the council of the wicked
To devour evil where it dwells
End persecution
End torment
End despair
Reclaim your creation
8. Endure (2:50)
This life is an open wound that will not heal
I cry out to God with all of my strength
Desperately I reach for Him in the night
This misery keeps my eyes from closing
Keeps my mouth from being able to speak
Is this as far as the arm of God extends
Has the fire burned itself out
There is no profit in this way of thinking
I must escape this frame of mind
And when I think of all He has done
When I consider all that He is
I am complete
9. Fire Made Flesh (The Physics of Fire Pt 2) (4:29)
And so was the plight of man for generations
Their souls remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Until the day that fire fell from heaven
Those who witnessed the blaze took up torches
And carried them into all the earth
Bearing witness that fire would be the key
To undoing the enemy' s grasp on their souls
Yet there were those who refused to believe
Since they had not seen the source of the blaze with their own eyes
Still many others left all they had behind
They took up torches and carried the flame
I will carry the flame to the end of the earth with me
This fire that burns forever is the only thing that sets me free
They marched deep into the depths of the earth
To reclaim their souls from the enemy
10. Second Death (6:03)
Surrounded by darkness
My body cold
My spirit weak
My greatest attempts to start a fire have proved to be in vain
The flame always fades
The warmth never lasts
And the freezing grip of death is at my throat again
Consumed by despair
My final breath escapes
I can hear the sound of a fire burning all around me
Yet I see no light
I feel no warmth
I find no rest
11. The Balance Of Eternity (The Physics of Fire Pt 4) (8:49)
They stood just inside the walls of the fortress
And looked out upon an endless sea of ice
At first the only sound was of burning torches
But another sound was rising
That of thousands of souls groaning in bitter agony
Trapped just below the surface and awakened by the presence of fire
The sound of the souls crying out for rebirth continued to grow
It became deafening and caused all of the men there
To fall on their knees
They drove their torches into the ground and watched as the ice began to melt away
The enemy' s grasp was broken by the power of fire
And a great multitude of souls were reclaimed from the ice
But there were many others that did not respond
To the presence of fire
They remained frozen
Enslaved in darkness
Forever
