Sanity Obscure Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Sanity Obscure (6:06)
The end of time is drawing near
The angels prepare for the harvest
Separation of the wicked and righteous
The corrupt the fire infest

Sifting of humanity
Extirpation of the heathen
Cast into the infinite holocaust
Where time's end is never seen

Signs of the end have come
Nation will rise against nation
Famines wage war on the land
The birth pains have begun

These omens of sanity are obscured
Hidden from the insane minds
Though seeing they do not see
They hear but understanding can't find

This people's heart has become calloused
Their eyes they willfuly seal
Otherwise their eyes might see
And in turn become healed

Blurred visions
Sanity obscure
2. Wisdom's Call (3:44)
How long, will you, simple ones, love your, simple ways
And continue to reject the calling of wisdom?
Fools mock, at making, amends, for sin
You fools detest turning from evil

Does not, wisdom, cry out, aloud, does not
Understanding raise her voice?
The wise, attaining, wisdom, and discipline
Listen and add to their learning

Worth more, than silver, yields more, than gold
Nothing you desire can compare with her
Those who, find her, through Christ, find life
All those who hate her love death

Why don't you open up your mind
Can't you hear wisdom's cry?
3. Nonpoint (5:14)
Toxic waste corrupts the air
Adulteration of man's breath
The sky pours forth rains of acid
Waters of life now bring death

Clear cuts espose the land
Forest ravaged by greed
Corporate lies being bought
Destruction for profit their creed

Surrounded by nonpoint filth
Pollution's silent killer
Ignoring our earth's decline
Out of sight, out of mind

Established upon the deep
Founded upon the seas
The earth became infected
From the fall came its disease

Pollution corrupts your soul
Wake up from your careless sleep
Open your eyes to see
What you sow you'll surely reap
4. Idols of Ignorance (4:39)
Dreamers, enticed to turn away
Kneeling, to gods born from clay
Praying, to images carved to stone
Bowing, though sins are not atoned

Hearing, only silence through your cries
Seeing, nothing with lifeless eyes
Worthless, are the objects idolized
Blinded, men fall to their demise

Unholy, lovers of themselves
Money, the lust of which compells
Brutal, without self control
Defying, the Redeemer of their soul

I am the first and the last
Yahweh, Creator of ages past
Ruler, Author of the Book of Life
Fortress, Saviour of impending strife

"I am the Lord
Apart of me
There is none
I form the light
Of this dark world
Bow to me or die!"
5. Stop the Madness (3:56)
Just an ignorant child
Brainwashed by this decaying world
Always searching to belong
Endless fear of being alone

Line by line
I watch you die
Too blind to see
Your shattered dreams

Weary from the boring routine
The dependency grows
Taught to listen to the wise
But only heard the fools

Body once unscarred
Now being murdered by stupidity
Realization of the truth
Brings freedom in captivity
6. Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) (5:41)
Libera me, Domine, de morte aeterna in die illa tremenda
Quendo coeli movendi sunt et terra
Dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem
(Deliver me, Lord from the eternal death
On that dreadful day when heavens and earth
Shall move, when you come to judge the world through fire)

Tremens factus sum ego, et timeo
Dum discussio venerit at que ventura ira
(I am made to tremble and to fear
At the destruction that shall come
And also at your coming wrath
When heavens and earth shall move)

Dies illa, dies irae, calamitatis et miseriae
Dies magna et amara valde
Dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem
(That day, day of wrath, calamity and misery
Great and exceedingly bitter day
When you come to judge the world through fire)

Requiem aeternam dona eis domine
Et lux perpetua luceat eis
(Rest eternal, grant them, Lord
And may perpetual light shine on them)
7. Dust to Dust (5:02)
Beneath the sun, all deeds done, meaningless are they
Labor in vain, tormenting pain, incessant toil
Chasing the wind, grasping (for) what's been, wearisome longings
Ages now gone, time passes on, but the earth remains

A time of birth, a time of death, perishing mortals
Men are like grass, which soon doth pass, destined to die
Houses of clay, doomed to decay, foundations of earth
Men come from dust, and to the dust, in death all return

The Lord did mold, man's flesh and soul, a creation of soil
But just as man, from dust began, in death will face judgement
But Christ was slain, bearing our pain, taking our sentence
The Christ was dead, the blood He shed, absolves the guilty

The hold of the grave, broken away, by the Risen Saviour
Prophecy fulfilled, His perfect will, providing eternal life
Death is certain, for every man, but belief gains life
He who believes, life he'll receive, even though he'll die

From dust you came
You must return
Can death you escape?
8. Like a Song (U2 Cover) (3:27)
Like a song I have to sing
I sing it for you!
Like the words I have to bring
I bring then to you
And in leather, lace or chains
We stake our claim
Revolution once again
But I won't
I won't wear it on my sleeve
I can see through this expression
And you know I don't believe
I'm too old to be told
Exactly who are you?
Tonight, tomorrow's too late

And we love to wear a badge, a uniform
And we love to fly a flag
But I won't let others live in hell
As we divide against each other
And we fight amongst ourselves
Too set in our ways to try to rearrange
Too right to be wrong, in this rebel song
Let the bells ring out, is there nothing left?
Is honesty what you want?

A generation without name, ripped and torn
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain
Nothing at all
And if you can't help yourself
Well take a look around you
When others need your time
You say it's time to go it's your time
Andry words won't stop the fight
Two wrongs won't make it right
A new heart is what I need
Oh God, make it bleed
Is there nothing left?
