The Last Spire Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Entrance to Hell (3:07)
(Instrumental)
"Bring out your dead"
2. Pallbearer (11:38)
Face of death now fills the sky
It became the earth we left to die
Black curtains close in on life
Morgue of silence all tears run dry

War, famine, drought, disease

Pall Bearer

Universe falls to its knees
Mankind didn't hear the pleas
Carrying life upon his back
Into the void, no turning back

War, famine, drought, disease

Pall Bearer

Grave diggers of the world unite
To celebrate our earth's demise
Kings of death, cosmic parasites
On blackened wings take one final flight

Drought, famine, war and disease
Mother nature no longer grieves
Staggering mass of man bereaved
True consequence of wealth and greed

Pall Bearer
3. Cathedral of the Damned (5:48)
Carry your cross, live to die - accepting shit, head in the sky
Christ your saviour, in this life of lies - blind existence beneath a scythe
Delusions of virtue guiding you - kaleidoscope of hatred you look through
Love is here but you can't see - they've taken it from you and me

In shadows, you are alone
No afterlife, this is your home

Living in the shadow of a damned cathedral

Underneath a funeral moon - soldiers of death march on earths tomb
Electric vulture flying high - above this land we left to die
Perishing from almighty sin - eternal frost is setting in
Freezing man down to the bone - repenting, cold and all alone

In shadows, you are alone
No afterlife, this is your home

Living in the shadow of a damned cathedral
4. Tower of Silence (6:53)
As twilight surrounds me, night becomes my home
Melancholic emotions possess this aching soul
A sea of stars above, oh how I year to roam
I've wandered around this wasteland - far too long

A tower of silence is waiting for me
Looming before an astral sea

Circle of time has stopped - everything's dying before me
Sun no longer shines - I'm alone in this cold world

I lurk in the shadows of society
Within this fucked up system, there's no place for me
Velvet chariot through this death I ride
Lampblack angel of sorrow my eternal guide

The tower of silence is waiting for me
Looming before an astral sea

Circle of time has stopped - everything's dying before me
Sun no longer shines - I'm forlorn in this dark world

I lurk within the shadows of society
Within your fucked up system, there is no place for me

A tower of silence is waiting for me
Looming before an astral sea

Circle of time has stopped
5. Infestation of Grey Death (9:01)
The living dead are all I see, this man made grey society
A funeral life in front of me, its futile joy my misery
Bombs falling from the skies, starving children left to die
Witnessed on a plasma screen, they care more for commodities

Infestation of grey death - putrefaction everywhere

Drudgery of the factory, funds material slavery
A holiday beside the sea, some tickets for the lottery
Can't escape this life of death, blindly racking up the debts
Dreams are rotting you can't see, decomposing dignity

Infestation of grey death - putrefaction fills the air

On a pale horse ride across the sands death
Barren wilderness, a soulless world bereft

Corpses fill my eyes, I don't hallucinate
Feeling terrified, anxious filled with hate

I've seen the things I need to see, just took a long time to believe
Days pass by as I walk slow into the ground, oh yes I know
The reaper blessed me long ago, with the wisdom they don't know
We're all dying it's plain to see, but some are gone long before me

Infestation of grey death - putrefaction kills the air
6. An Observation (10:19)
I have seen through occult forces - another side of life
Hungry demons joined in darkness - to desecrate my soul

A funeral is all I see, a funeral is all I feel

I have viewed from acid towers - the other side of life
Bloody fields of iron flowers - in a world of plastic smiles

A funeral is all I feel, a funeral is all I've seen

Floating on a four leaf clover, everything's a dream
Reality becomes the joker, laughter turns to screams

Follow paths of institution blindly through this life
The butcher of your inner conscience stabs you with his knife
7. The Last Laugh (0:38)
8. This Body, Thy Tomb (8:46)
I exist in this coffin of life
Murdered trust and misfortune, has evolved into strife
Through these eyes I see nothing but death
I have tried forgiving and now I've nothing left

This body and blood, the cemetery of my soul
This body thy tomb encases me
Thy flesh a pall covering a long lost heart
This body thy tomb enslaves me

Seeds of decay were planted so long ago
In the garden of life where a future failed to grow
Golden crown and sceptre - I adorn
Amongst fellow corpses - in this loveless morgue

This body and blood, the cemetery of my soul
This body thy tomb encases me
Thy flesh a pall bearing covering a long lost heart
This body thy tomb enslaves me
