War Master Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Intro... Unleashed (Upon Mankind) (6:13)
You watch in terror, in fear of your life
Their execration revealed, only your death will suffice
You cannot conceal, this reality from your mind
As unknown powers, are unleashed upon mankind

Unleashed upon mankind

Running - in search of safety
No escape - from [the] deadly wrath
Screaming - you beg for mercy
Silenced - by the searing blast

You are forced to believe, this is for real
Mind frozen with horror, as your body trembles in fear
No prayers for deliverance, your gods you now forsake
Summon courage from within, face your unperceived fate

Unleashed upon mankind

Awaiting - with expectation
Impending - life's annihilation
Annihilation [sings something else here]
Mass genocide - the resolution
Now verified - out termination

Now the stench of death, abides throughout the world
As infesting plagues, cause agonies untold

Unleashed upon mankind

You are the final victim, no one else has survived
Alone you now suffer, eagerly waiting to die

The ending draws nearer, our extinction is justly deserved
Through thoughtless intentions, this holocaust incurred
The closing chapter finished, now face the torment and pain
Through death it becomes clearer, mankind alone is to blame

Unleashed upon mankind [doesn't sing this]
2. What Dwells Within (4:18)
An unseen force tears through your soul
Revealing memories past life unknown
Fervent emotions from deep within
Inner transformation now begins

Life before you cannot conceive
Thoughts repressed denial to believe

Precise identity you cannot tell
Existing inside this mortal shell

Summon the powers that dominate
Grasp your inner strength seize control of hate
A forgotten past a life of normality
This sudden transition redirects your destiny

Consumed with resentment hatred you now possess
Potency awakened from eternal rest
Through invocation to an existence you detest

What has become of your humility
Corrupted through change to anguish and misery
As man's preordained fate now doses in
You're a silent witness to what dwells within

As man judges all by outward impressions
Our status is classed through amounting possessions
Whilst shrouding the truth through delightful [sings deceitful]
expression
Injustice presides by mass edacious obsession
3. The Shreds Of Sanity (3:27)
Within your mind, you feel a force
Striving to gain control, it burns you deep inside

No one can help you now

You try to focus on reality, feel your mind slipping
An outside air of composure, but inside you're screaming

Inside you're screaming

White blinding lights, now turns your world to black
Alone in silence, you prepare to meet the final attack

Your mind now out of control, a psychological disease
Your greatest fears envelop your mind - Infect it with torment
Now totally insane, you cannot remember your life before
A final vain hope, as you grasp for the shreds

The shreds of sanity
The shreds of sanity

You cannot hide the fear, confusion eats at your will
You lived your life upon a knifeedge of sanity
As your grip begins to fail, the words echo through your mind
Look what has become of your world
(Your world)

(The shreds...)
The shreds of sanity
(The shreds...)
The shreds of sanity
4. Profane Creation (5:32)
Constructed with vengeful hate
The extinction of life, man's final plight
We strive until the end
Though none shall be taken alive
A killing machine, programmed for death
To destroy all that comes within (his) sight
Mindless, created insane
Mankind shall never survive
Never survive
Strength becoming weaker, as fear grows within
Faced with eternal damnation, the end shall now begin

Profane creation, the dawn of a new age
Technology's progression, over man machines reign
Enslaved without compassion, new masters of (the) earth we
dwell
Human life is worthless, in this automated living hell

In the quest for perfection, life becomes obsolete
Humanity faces deletion, this nightmare world is complete
As we wait for execution, in silence we stand in line
The total extinction of the existence of mankind

Our futile life's now ended, free from the suffering and pain
Our systems (now) are loaded, we have been created profane

Profane creation, the dawn of a new age
Technology's progression, over man machines reign
Enslaved without compassion, new masters of (the) earth we
dwell
Human life is worthless, in this automated living hell

In the quest for perfection, life becomes obsolete
Humanity faces deletion, this nightmare world is complete
As we wait for execution, silent we stand in line
The total extinction of the existence of mankind
5. Destructive Infinity (4:14)
You never thought life could come to this
Man reborn to die upon the altar of war

And now we stand, to face the truth
This world now enslaved, bound by hate

In fear of life now that the mindless control
As the flame of hope for mankind now burns away

For now you stand alone to die
Whilst visions of horror infest your mind

Destructive - Man's lust for power
Infinity - A lifetime of war

Destroying your world, again and again
Suffering in torment, through agonizing pain

Killing for pleasure, only the strong shall remain
An arising slaughter, as hatred and terror now reigns

Now reigns [doesn't sing this here]

Destructive - The world ripped apart
Infinity - A never ending fear

Destructive infinity [doesn't sing this here]
6. Final Revelation (3:56)
Born to suffer, through a lifetime of darkness
Controlled by fear, held deep within your mind

As your mind reaches a distant point
Your soul beyond all pain

You shall realize all that has occurred
Were illusions formed from within your brain

You now know the truth - Your mind is now set free
You have broken the chains - That enslave all of humanity

Perceiving - life's reality
(An) Insight - to man's destiny

A coherent existence, comprehension you cannot deny
A meaningless persistence, confirmation you cannot defy

We follow without thinking, as our life passes us by
This newly acquired knowledge, clarified as we die

In this kingdom of the mindless
You [sings "we"] are born to suffer
7. Cenotaph (4:04)
Alone you stand - The final parody
Destined to silence - A memorial to mortality

Carved in stone - A tribute to the dead
For nameless victims - Whose litany is unread

Never Forgotten - War's memory lingers on
A dark reminder - To mankind's oblivion

This solemn image - Constructed with resolution
A monument - To war's terminal conclusion

Cenotaph
8. War Master (4:17)
Throughout all time
Within the past, present and future
Man has sought to destroy
All that stood in our way

As man fights man
In the epic struggle for survival
The warmaster shall reign
With oppression fed by a burning hate

Hatred of mankind, twisted within your mind
Corrupted by powers unknown, the downfall of this world

The end of your life, beginning of human strife
Destruction of this crippled planet
Warmaster an inhuman prophet

WARMASTER

You shall obey all that he commands

Hatred of mankind within your mind
Corrupted by powers unknown, the downfall of this world

Now once more...we rise to fall
Man's destruction...in the final war
Nothing's left...of the human race
The planet's end...our destiny oblivion
9. Rebirth Of Humanity (4:01)
Again we rise, to gain control
From the burnt out shell, of our ruined world

Reconstruction of civilisation

This world - once ripped apart
Now as life - again shall start

Without thinking of our future generations
Our world descends to apocalyptic wars
Through desolate wastes of infernal devastation
Man shall rise to take control once more

From the wreckage of civilisation
Through the ruins of this world
Man shall rise to power
And grow in strength once more
But will man seek to destroy
All that's been recreated
Have we learnt through our suffering

Only time shall tell

Time shall tell
10. Afterlife (6:01)
As you feel, your soul depart from this world
Prepare for a journey, to regions of the unknown

Your life has now ended
You fear the conclusion
Cast into the dark realms
Destined to the afterlife

As terror, grips your soul
Direction is uncertain
Fear clouds your mind
Ignorance your burden

Afterlife

Within the domination [sings "dominion"] of the lifeless, you
plead to die in
peace
Now despair for total forgiveness, trapped within your belief

You lived your life as a follower, bowing to every command
Your gods shall never answer, imprisoned in this land

All is silent
Held within
Existing forever
New life begins
External desolation
Your soul to give

Enslaved for all existence - perpetual endless torment
Reality is now dormant - within the afterlife
