Follow the Reaper Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Follow the Reaper (3:47)
"Death, be not proud. Though some have called thee mighty and dreadful, thou art not so."

Loosing the war I'm feining to win
Though I never tried to to strive deep from within
Life could be beautiful for anybody it's for
But I'd swear this mothafuckin' shit is rotten to the core

Pre-chorus:
The portal has been past and it's time to make a turn
To follow the reaper until the point of no return

Chorus:
When your blindly death-raying blade
sweeps the griefs and fears away
I cross my heart and hope to die thy freedom
will be mine

Sinking down in the ocean of severe emotions
Grab a bottle to drink up the pain-reliefing potion
But after all, that got boring too
So no matter what happens, I couldn't give a damn or too

Pre-chorus 2:
The portal has been past 'til the point of no return
No more lines to cross, no more bridges to burn

Chorus 2:
Now when your blindly death-raying blade
swept my griefs and tears away
I'd never go back to cross that line
I cross my heart and hope to die

"I was only twenty one when I died"
2. Bodom After Midnight (3:44)
(Hang on) got to go
Preview what they oughta know
Keep your head down and fucking die
(Wake up) rise and shine
Gotta take another pint
Dig heads and watch out for the night

When the sun comes down and the moon comes up in the sky
The battle of the day and the night

(Kill, kill, kill) go fuck another one
Candlelight burns in a wood so high
On a carpet (flying high) take it down to the other side
The way beyond it may lie

When the moon comes up and is rescuing under the night
The reaper is on the other side, let's go

Bodom after midnight
Bodom after midnight yeah
3. Children of Decadence (5:34)
Running under cover of the moonlight
Shadow death row
At the night we're running wild with no hope for tomorrow...
No tomorrow!!!

Pre-chorus:
As we're walking through the fire
That burns within us all
If ya wanna take a glance to the blaze of pain
You'll never be the same

Pre-chorus 2:
You wanna get closer and get a taste of death?
I know ya wanna fuck me down til' I'm bleeding red
I couldn't care less, I'll end up rotting in mud
So c'mon mothafucka and gimme yer best shot

Chorus:
You really thought you'd see through what I am and what I need
We are children of rebellion, we'll fight, we'll bleed
Don't try to come to preach over us and over me
we're children of decadence
we're right, we're real, we will fight, we'll bleed
we're mothafucking dying breed, we're dying...

All wrecked and fucked I wonder if this is the way I'm supposed to go
But that is all I ever got, that is all I'll ever get
So I just let it go

Pre-chorus:
As we're walking through the fire
That burns within us all
If ya wanna take a glance to the blaze of pain
You'll never be the same

Pre-chorus 2:
You wanna get closer and get a taste of death?
I know ya wanna fuck me down til' I'm bleeding red
I couldn't care less, I'll end up rotting in mud
So c'mon mothafucka and gimme yer best shot

Chorus:
You really thought you'd see through what I am and what I need
We are children of rebellion
We'll fight, we'll bleed
Don't try to come to preach over us and over me
We're children of decadence
We're right, we're real, we will fight, we'll bleed
We're mothafucking dying breed, we're dying...
4. Everytime I Die (4:03)
The faint blaze of the candle of my life
Slowly dying like a fire in a pouring rain
No sparks of hope inside
No shooting stars on my sky
On broken wings, no flying high...

Another night, another demise...
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice...
I`ll let the wind blow out the light
Cause it gets more painful every time I die

Out of strength to fight
I cannot take another night
I cannot take it no more
Lust of light slips through my fingers
Like blood drops on my arms
Black candle wax has buried me...

Another night, another demise...
Cadaverous wind blowing cold as ice...
I`ll let the wind blow out the light
Cause it gets more painful every time I die
5. Mask of Sanity (3:59)
I can't waste away, I'm slowly losing my way forever
Better raise your slave for me anymore
Daylight's sin inside, day's growing closer, wait for pain
I cannot wait another night to be alone

Voices are calling me, 'be my night!' this devil's sigh
Yeah, shadows are tainting me
Yeah, I know that only you can render pain

Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity

I can't waste away, I'm slowly getting my way forever
Better is what I used to feel alone
Shattered light's sin in taint, day's growing longer, wait for pain
I cannot wait another night to be with you

Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity

Peace of mind, you run away from me
So make me lose my mask of sanity
6. Taste of My Scythe (3:58)
"Rip and cut and mutilate the innocent
His friends, and again and again and on and on."

You make me own my life in Hell; my kingdom back to the bound
You say you don't make it alone; kingdom back to the Lord

Falling, I say; you too, falling; you too, born to die

Come with hate
Come and die

One day I'll face you all alone
Enduring out with wind and ice
It's payback time; it's your demise sought to feel:
They'll feel taste of my scythe

You say my ear, my God who help me, God take yours in shame
Back too low, I want your head on a plate to feel my eyes

Come with me, I want your blood to save it on my eyes
I want you and in the plate to be coming in the sky (sky!)

Come with hate
Come and try

One day I'll face you all alone
Enduring out with wind and ice
It's payback time; it's your demise until they feel:
Taste of my scythe
7. Hate Me! (4:45)
I was born in ashes of molten hatred
Raised by demons in abodes of the dead
The Reaper's scythe I fall upon to light my path
Wrecked by mangled wounds of life
I have become become the resurrection of the Evil one
'Yknow that I don't fucking care if I live or die

I need a bishop preaching fire to get away with my sins
I despise everything I see

Ain't got respect for humanity
Never lived or wanted immortality
The Reaper's shadow I fall upon to obscure my path
Every day I'm being battered up until I bleed
You motherfuckas just leave me be
Ya could never give me cure for the pain I feel inside

I need a bishop preaching fire to get away with my sins
I despise everything I see so I don't give a fuck if ya hate me !

Led by the Reaper I walk in the night
Show me the way to yer kingdom come

I believe in Armageddon
I've been baptized in alcohol
I'm embodiment of Antichrist
I'm living for my own demise

I was born in ashes of molten hatred
Raised by demons in abodes of the dead
The Reaper's scythe I fall upon to light my path
Wrecked by mangled wounds of life
I have become become the resurrection of the Evil one
'Yknow that I don't fucking care if I live or die

I need a bishop preaching fire to get away with my sins
I despise everything I see so I don't fuck a fuck if you hate me!

Led by the Reaper I walk in the night
Show me the way to yer kingdom come

I believe in Armageddon
I've been baptized in alcohol
I'm embodiment of Antichrist
I'm living for my own demise
8. Northern Comfort (3:49)
You're the one who plays with fire in the night
You're the one who scares people with the scythe

You're the one to tell Him to ever live by
You're the Lord to shaking all alone

(You're alone!)

Now you left me out to drop His sight
I wasn't ready for the sunlight to come to my heart

Take me with you, take me far
Take me away from the painless soul
Drop the haze; save the skies... Reaper never lies

Now running out to forever alone
Sweating and shivering, cold right to the bone

Pain is come; control to fall...
Become for the mad to escape with a bottle from this world

You're far too alive: try back to the sky
I wasn't ready for the scythe... get me down to the trough

Like lightning from the sky
The moon is up with pride; go listen, take away

Your place for my lying out... being high, come Heaven above
Drop it now: it falls alive; take me to the sky
9. Kissing the Shadows (4:32)
High above your shadow smiles at me
Way down below I hear you serenely breathe

I'm running after you throughout
The valleys of tormented souls
Don't you be afraid of me only kissing your shadow...
You re so far away, I can feel your scent
When I caress your shadow
And if you truly want I'll cross the line I'll follow

I m dreaming my way out from down below
To get wherever you haunting from, I'll go...

I'm kissing the shadows you surround me with
To feel my pain vanishing away from me
You're touching the shadows I'm surrounding you with
So together in peace we shall be

I'm running after you throughout
The valleys of tormented souls
Don't you be afraid of me only kissing your shadow...
You re so far away, I can feel your scent
When I caress your shadow
And if you truly want I'll cross the line I'll follow
