Sands of Time Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Death and the City (2:44)
All around
The stench of death
The smell of wasted years
Fallen beauty
The sickness grows
Rain on concrete
Like the tears
The greyness looms
The henchmen wait
Be quick to master fear
A place called home
In a bitter world
Rain on concrete
Like the tears

White king reigns
Bring the pain
Blood on the sidewalk
Death in the streets

In this city
Fallen from grace
Beyond every sin
Feel the sickness grow...

Blood on the sidewalk
Death in the streets
2. Day of the Scorpio (2:38)
Out to destroy
Every inch of your world
Enemy of mine
Trying to tear down all that I stand for
Built up over time
This is my final stand
My call to arms
My smile in the face of defeat
I stand alone
And face this hail of knives
This throne belongs to me
My final stand...

...among the fratricide
I learned to take the pain
Your rules of life I fail to comprehend
Is this my fall from grace?
Built my strength with the lies
Spit them in your face
I am reborn, I feel empowered
This is the only way
I'm once again...

Out to destroy
Every inch of your world
Enemy of mine
Trying to tear down all that I stand for
Built up over time
This is my final stand
My call to arms
My smile in the face of defeat
I stand alone
And face this hail of knives
This throne belongs to me
My final stand

This is my final stand

Knee-deep in betrayal,
sifting through remains of might, my final stand
Out to destroy, with newborn strength I fight your world
3. Under These Skies (2:31)
A million times, a million miles
Traveled in my time
There's all I've done and all I've had
Ignored the written signs
The price of time, the death of things
Hate to fade the lies
Fixed and broken, survived myself
My heart is bleeding...
Under these skies

The death of things
Under these skies
The broken hearts
Under these skies
The broken lives
Under these skies
Life passed me by
Under these skies

I've seen the light, I've felt the dark
Mourned all that are gone
Lost a lot, but gained the world
conquered all to come

Sands of time run out

The days of old they cannot last
The sands of time they pass too fast

The bitter tears, the endless nights
enter a newborn day
Stood up to rise, true hearts don't die
wash the dirt away
4. Stainless (3:19)
I'm a man that walks all alone
In this godforsaken world
Played this life too much as a game
Never turned it to reverse
Never got what I really wanted
or needed to do what's right
but what's true is me to myself
and my thoughts in the dead of the night

Look inside this heart
It's the rules of the game
And if this is what it takes
I'll take the pain...

Look inside my heart
It's a heart without shame
It's been put to the test and remains stainless

Stainless like steel

Bled for many sins
life's not always fair
Feel a part of me dying
I'm still going nowhere
5. Black Gold (3:02)
Digging deep into the ground
Black gold seeking, hell bound
Enter dark shafts
Early up and old
Wrecking themselves
Misery unfolds
It eats their flesh,
Drinks their blood
Strangled in it's hands
Cast into the fiery hole

Killing without mercy
Live the curse of this darkened world
On their knees, undeserving
Of deadly fate that might unfold

As hours pass by
They see their children die
They see their lovers killed
By the devil...itself

We will not forget
Curse the black gold
6. The Longest Day (2:41)
Dragging on, can't tell what's mine
Life heads for a fall
No more guides, no more escapes
No faith to great to break
Bleed forever, bleed alone
Lonely roads I roam
Day of broken dreams
Is this my world?
The damage has been done
...it has been done

Damage has been done
This can't be the end
The end of an endless road
Take the dark away
The road to take myself home
Face the longest day
Face the longest...
Face the longest day

Cut my heart out, I'm thrown back in the dark
Hold my breath as words make wounds, sanity seems far
Life hits back, it's pounding in, I'm drowning in the blood
From open wounds, old and new, peace I will find none
7. Harvest (2:53)
Filth of ages floats
Like the burning soil
Destruction becomes harvest
The hell where my blood boils
Empty is eternity
realize what's left
Falling down, hollow soul
I beg for quicker death

I fear the time to come, the age of another light
Texture burned beyond my soul, I crawl onto the night
State of grace, bleeding eyes, life has come to this
Forsaken past, forsaken future, clench my broken fist
Harvest...

Visions of the future
Like my nightmares in the past
Nothing fades to lesser
Going nowhere fast
8. Never Return (2:50)
Scorching heat, till deliverance
The tide is turning
I've seen the face
The fall of idols
I must escape
Leaving this time behind
Trapped in (a) stalemate
Lasting lifetimes
End the siege
Broken soul
Forever burning
I live this life
Answering to only me

Losing focus to see what's real
Never Return
Weathered by time to lay it on the line
Never Return
Compromise, weakness I can't afford
Never Return

Breaking stone
Cracking concrete
No limits pending
Raging harder
Breathing deeper
Feeling life

Will to rise
Self-made man
Can't take this from me
Bury me
No cross to bear
My soul is carved
Never Return
9. Rising Tide (2:47)
Betrayed by me
I am my own worst enemy
Murder in the first degree
Of my serenity

Nothing ends, those days won't fade
Everything too little, too late
Endless hours, endless days
Fighting myself to find my way
World of pain on my shoulders
Watch me bow down to this
Cut it loose so pain gets older
My anger leads my fists

I breath the air
So cold inside
Time doesn't heal
I fight the tide

Facing time, I got no faith
The clock creeps on, I'm living yesterday
Take me on to days to come,
Take me to where I belong

I breath the air
So cold inside
Time doesn't heal
I fight the tide

Fight the Rising Tide

Nothing ends, those days won't fade
Everything too little, too late
Endless hours, endless days
Fighting myself to find my way
World of pain on my shoulders
Watch me bow down to this
Cut it loose so pain gets older
My anger leads my fists
10. Here Lies Civilization (3:54)
Pace is fast, suffer creation
Life in agony, all condemned
It's coming down, remorse is senseless
Drown in flames, regret is meaningless
All is black as we reach the end
Last remains of a raped society
Progress a means to regress to dust
Purity of souls filled with disgust

Here lies civilization
Epitaph for a slaughtered world
Here lies civilization
The remains of a butchered earth

And I don't think men will ever learn
There is so little hope
I don't think men will ever see
That what we get is we've sown

Here lies civilization
Epitaph for a slaughtered world
Here lies civilization
The remains of a butchered earth

There will be no dawn for human kind
