Tyranny of Souls Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Mars Within (Intro) (1:29)
Profession Quatermass where are you.....
Professor Quatermass where are you...?
Mankind returns to the stars........
But sometimes...the stars...return.....to mankind...
Didn't you come this way before? A million years ago?
2. Abduction (3:51)
I wake in sweat you've come to steal my life away
Some strange electric glow of artifical day
The power breakers close, the grid of darkness falls
Shining gleaming black as night, burning all the light

What do you want from me?
I sense your mastery...
There's something you won't ever find
So have your way with me, this prisoner is never free
Rip me up, leave me behind.....

Are you the truth to sit in judgement on my sins
Evil laser gadgets come to penetrate my skin
The hanging judge is open and I'm damned before his eyes
Another genesis that failed - how many more have tried?

What do you want from me?
I sense your mastery...
There's something you won't ever find
So have your way with me, this prisoner is never free
Rip me up, leave me behind.....

And so the story goes I dreampt this long ago
Highways hidden in the sands reveal the truths I know
They took my worthless heart and spat it through their eyes
Abduction means the end for me, a million years of misery

What do you want from me?
I sense your mastery...
There's something you won't ever find
So have your way with me, this soldier's lost his victory
Rip me up, leave me behind.....
3. Soul Intruders (3:53)
We ride the cosmic streams of time
We are the fools you came to trust
We blind the eyes of history
We tear ourselves down from your cross

Half lives...
We live again.....
Half lives...........
Now we are one...........

We�re the Soul Intruders
In the whirling void of night
We�re the Soul Intruders
And we're crying for the light
We�re the Soul Intruders
With no life of our own
I'm a sole survivor, but who sits on my throne?

Solar winds have taken hold
Blowing us where we do not know
Existence silent and unknown
Father son and viral host

Half lives
Eat but never kill
Half lives
We live as well........

We�re the Soul Intruders
In the whirling void of night
We�re the Soul Intruders
And we're crying for the light
We�re the Soul Intruders
With no life of our own
I'm a sole survivor, but who sits on my throne?
4. Kill Devil Hill (5:07)
Blood brothers of angels now hear us,
We earthbound your offspring, don't fear us
God willing, we'll raise up, be near you
So open, your arms now, and take us
So we're breathing our dreams, like the Icarus of old
The plans we made for the bold
In the blue eyed beyond, there is nowhere to hide
There is no going back now

As the wind whips over the hillside
20 knots over Kill Devil Hill
Steady wind blows over the sands
20 knots over Kill Devil Hill
As the breeze whips straight as an arrow
Let her go over Kill Devil Hill
Gasoline and wind in the wires
Kill Devil Hill and the way to the stars

We stand on this seashore and wonder
What madness, what secrets, we plunder
All failure we learn from, discovery
The wreckage of heaven lies on the sand
First chance is abandoned
With wood string and wire we can barely control our desire
For destiny's arrows........

As the wind whips over the hillside
20 knots over Kill Devil Hill
Steady wind blows over the sands
20 knots over Kill Devil Hill
As the breeze whips straight as an arrow
Let her go over Kill Devil Hill
Gasoline and wind in the wires
Kill Devil Hill and the way to the stars
5. Navigate the Seas of the Sun (5:52)
Distant earthrise long ago
Lingers at the borders of our minds
Mysteries spinning in the dark
In the frozen emptiness of time
We were lost and we never knew
Who we were or what we left behind
Living half lives we were blind
To the new frontiers that opened up our eyes

To find our minds were spinning,
Souls entwined in a spiral dance
The ancient ways have found us, again,
To give us one last chance

Living in this place, staring into space we find
We might share the corners of our lives
Infinity runs deep, eternity that we can't keep
Melting through the frozen wastes of time

So we go and we'll not return,
To navigate the seas of the sun
Our children will go on and on
To navigate the seas of the sun
So we go and will not return
To navigate the seas of the sun
Our children will go on and on
To navigate the seas of the sun

We can't go on tomorrow, living death by gravity,
Couldn't stand it anymore,
We'll sail our ships to distance shores

Purple gold and blue,
Living colors every hue,
Flowers in the garden of the gods
No one can ever know
If you never saw them grow
This darkness, is really full of light

Well beyond the earth,
Beyond all things that gave us birth
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
If god is throwing dice,
And Einstein doesn't mind the chance
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
Infinity runs deep, eternity that we can't keep
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
Flowers of our souls, purple blue and gold we find
To navigate the seas of the sun
So we know who we are even in this frozen waste
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
Living in this place, staring into space we find
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
Well beyond the earth
Beyond all things that gave us birth
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
If Einstein is throwing dice,
And god doesn't mind the chance
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
Flowers of our souls, purple blue and gold we find
To navigate the seas of the sun
And who we were before -
Eternity that we can't keep
We'll navigate the seas of the sun
6. River of No Return (5:13)
Break the bread and drink the wine
Seize the chalice, suck the poison vine
There is frost ,in every sunbeam
Water flows, from the earth to sky
Looking down on every rose
Nothing moves the wheal of heaven turns
As our fingers leave their trace
We are gods in a world we dared embrace

Now we're lost, you can�t disguise, the river of no return
Now its gone, you realize, the river of no return

Glowing embers of our ancient lives
We struggle hard, we live to turn the tide
Living longer in the astral waste
We stare each other, we look death in the face
All my life, in front of you
Lonely secrets hidden from your view.
Now we orbit a different sun
For eternity, doomed to tell no one

Now we're lost, you can�t disguise, the river of no return
Now its gone, you realize, the river of no return

Now I'm truly all alone
Canyon walls and the river of no return
I'm amazed at what i am
I never knew the feelings I ignored

Now we're lost, you can�t disguise, the river of no return
Now its done, we realize, the river of no return
And the anguish drives me on ,I wish i could return,
All the love, that washed away
Down the river of no return
7. Power of the Sun (3:30)
Is this a citadel, is this a prison cell?
Who sits at my right hand, who's watching me now?
Who made us live this way, when do i get my say
Automation turns us into human beings now

Tripping over faces, humanity has fallen
Huddled into doorways on the streets at dawn

The power of the sun, keeps us moving on
Spinning ever faster
The city never sleeps, the echoes of the footfalls
Already in the past

Every dawn arrives, the gathering of the tribes
Shattered waves of people breaking over city walls
Never out of touch, but always on your own
Trapped inside the logic of your own communication zone

What deals have been done, who's under the gun
Stay one step ahead of the next in line

The power of the sun, keeps us moving on
Spinning ever faster
The city never sleeps, the echoes of the footfalls
Already in the past

The cameras never lie, the ghost of you and I, already in the past
Inside a picture frame, we'll vanish once again
Now the dawn is coming fast.....

The power of the sun, keeps us moving on
Spinning ever faster
The city never sleeps, the echoes of the footfalls
Already in the past
8. Devil on a Hog (4:01)
You wanna know where legends live?
At the rainbows end I�ll be there,
There�s a place in innerspace.....
That�s where I'll get to you
I�m not the shy retiring kind
I'm like a supernova for the blind
I used to sit at God's right hand
But I quit that show yo do my one night
Stands............

Coming outta nowhere I'm a Godhead rider.....
You won�t see my face no more
My machine has left the floor
Leave my rivals in the dirt
I've seen your world and I got the shirt.....
Before I leave and go my way
I loved it but I couldn�t stay
There�s nothing left for you to feel
Just remember me.....

You might see me in Tokyo
To the rings of Saturn hey.....Let's go
And you can trip all the lights with me
But your one time chance is never free.......
I'll see you baby once again
Maybe 3 score years and ten......
I�ll be driving a different ship
That's when I'll take you down, for your final
Trip............

Coming outta nowhere I'm a Godhead rider.....
You won�t see my face no more
My machine has left the floor
Leave my rivals in the dirt
I've seen your world and I got the shirt.....
Before I leave and go my way
I loved it but I couldn�t stay
There�s nothing left for you to feel
Just remember me.....

Coming outta nowhere I'm a Godhead rider.....
Coming outta nowhere I'm a Godhead rider.....
You won�t see my face no more
My machine has left the floor
Leave my rivals in the dirt
I've seen your world and I got the shirt.....
Before I leave and go my way
I loved it but I couldn�t stay
There�s nothing left for you to feel
Just remember me.....
9. Believil (4:50)
Smoking, resting on it's grave,
The carcass rusting where it lies,
No more truth, no honest games,
The serpent writhes within us all,
Lava streams of molten flesh,
Into their mountain homes retire,
Now sleeping eyes of death awake,
Your drug of choice, truth or lie,

I believe, you and me,
I believe, evil,
I believe, you will see,
I believe, evil,

What does not kill it,
Makes it strong,
The carcass stirs it will not die,
It feeds on you,
It feeds on me,
I know his name..........you know mine too,

I believe, you and me,
I believe, evil,
I believe, you will see,
I believe, evil,

I believe, you and me,
I believe, evil,
I believe, you will see,
I believe, evil,
10. A Tyranny of Souls (5:48)
When shall we three meet again?
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When the hurly burly's done?
When the battles lost not won?

A tyranny of souls, that love has lost
A tyranny of souls, a pentecost
Speak in tongues of fire
Inflaming our desires, watching as we die...

Who rips the child out from the womb?
Who raised the dagger who plays the tune?
At the crack of doom on judgment day
No ocean could wash my sins away

A tyranny of souls, that love has lost
A tyranny of souls, a pentecost
Speak in tongues of fire
Inflaming our desires, watching as we die...
A tyranny of souls

We are the black space, we are the black light
We shine where no others dare
Killing my head with the neon, suffering my fate for no reason
No is a relative stranger to my life

Deeds of the faithful, seeds of betrayal
Hammer the nail into my hand, anger is ruler in my land
I am the killer of weakness in my head
We are the black light
We are the black space

A tyranny of souls, that love has lost
A tyranny of souls, a pentecost
Speak in tongues of fire
Inflaming our desires, watching as we die on our own cross
A tyranny of souls, that love has lost
A tyranny of souls, a pentecost
Speak in tongues of fire
Inflaming our desires, watching as we die!
