Corrosion of Conformity Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Psychic Vampire (4:29)
From the pulpit the puppet's mouth is infested with suggestion.
A description unfitting, resonate and predigested.
A transaction of extraction, transference is here.
Stir the pot to see what you've got to appear.

Psychic vampire, paranoia down the wire.
Psychic vampire goodbye.

Adorn the queen oblivion, as a pawn your life in hawk.
Gilded road to emptiness, feel the chill of time's caress.

Psychic vampire, paranoia down the wire.
Psychic vampire, goodbye.
2. River of Stone (6:12)
Those who first see the light are the one extinguishing.
If blood should reign and rivers boil, feel the earth beneath burning.

Where do you look now for knowing that some great fall looms?
Crucible has been cast, this is the way that cannot last.
Iron snakes they crawl the dirt, caught up in a spider's web.
Rivers turn to stone again and the seas are black and dead.
No shelter for evil, in time you'll find another way.
When you're dealing with those devils.
To who or what you gonna pray?

Thunder came and struck them down and the wheels kept right on rolling.
Strange beasts are everywhere and the earth they've overrun.

Where do you look now for knowing that some great fall looms?
Time of trials is unleashed, artifice is overcome.
Iron snake they crawl the dirt, caught up in a spider's web.
Rivers turn to stone again, and the seas are black and dead.
No shelter for evil, in time you'll find another way.
When you're dealing with those devils.
To who or what you gonna pray?

In a swarm the crows are clamoring, what's happening?
In a storm that's outside gathering there's hammering
Don't you want to know the sign?
Don't you want to know your time?
Long of tooth the shadows grow.
By the stream where nothing flows.
3. Leeches (2:17)
Born in the land of confidence dying of disease.
Paralyzed standing tall but rotting at the knees.
The leeches are speechless.
Soon to be uncovered is the weight of fattened lamb.
Broken wheel, smoking mirror, poison slight of hand.
The leeches are speechless.
We look to the sky consume be silent die.
Won't ask no questions why.
Consume be silent.
The leeches are speechless.
Suck the blood of freedom.
Because there's more than meets the eye.
Seen the light to weak to fight.
For smoke and mirror lies.
The leeches are speechless.
We look to the sky consume be silent die
Ask no questions why consume be silent.
4. El Lamento de las Cabras (3:01)
5. Your Tomorrow (4:07)
Sacrifices must be made to the gods of war again
It's the grunt that pay the price and the profiteers who win.

Who brought this world of sorrow?
Who stole your tomorrow?
Far from home brought by lies, fighting on you don't know why.
Death rains drones from on high, while rats get fat good soldiers die.

They'll greet you there with open arms, you know they'll welcome you with flowers.
Lies they tell to to ease their mind, all while serving darker powers.

Who brought this world of sorrow?
Who stole your tomorrow?
Far from home brought by lies, fighting on you don't know why.
Death rains down from on high, while rats get fat good soldiers die.

The friend becomes the enemy, while a march to war begins again.
Politicians eye the polls, while the priests absolve their sins.

Who brought this world of sorrow?
Who stole your tomorrow?
6. The Doom (4:52)
With fear they bend your ear, words darken the season.
With pride their shallow ride, vanity's believing.
Riding high but my soul is all tore down.
Gathering momentum, into the ground.
These words are tainted, dis-info-tainment.
What I see is acid to all logic, but it's alright.
This light is darkness but it's alright.
Overlord needs no sword.
The brow that beats, the sheep don't speak.
But it's alright.
The wool is on the whites of their eyes.
The viral clone of virtue.
Twisted words cast shadow across the bald faced truth.
The shadow caste is getting longer.
7. The Moneychangers (4:14)
Reckless minds they set the bait, in the grass the serpents wait.
Believe you're blessed when you say yes.
Then you know the trap is set.

That's right, the moneychangers.
Thrown out of the temple, you know it didn't last a day.
Now returned in the clothes of the pious, back to their old ways.
The moneychangers, ah, ah, ah.

Now in the matrix take your place.
They'll tap your labor and your light.
Gain euphoria, from your paranoia.

That's right, the moneychangers.
Well you're thrown from the temple, you know it didn't last a day..
Now returned in the clothes of the pious, back to their old ways.
The moneychangers, ah, ah ah.

Reckless minds they set then bait, in the grass the serpents wait.
Believe you're blessed when you say yes.
Then you know the trap is set.
8. Weaving Spiders Come Not Here (4:06)
Feed the fire the rite of fuel.
Conspire.
The end begins the mute they die.
Kill the fly kill the fly.
Bow down or walk away.
Walk away.
Surreal babylon is here to stay.
In retreat we plan attack so sweet.
Our plans complete.
Celebrate this power.
Light the owl the time is now.
The time is now.
Bow down or walk away.
Surreal babylon is here to stay.
Greed came to flower.
And nourish power.
Bow down or walk away.
Weaving spiders come not here.
Come not here.
9. What You Despise Is What You've Become (3:46)
What you despise is what you've become.
How low can you go?
The hospital?
Am I out of my head?
Where is the backbone, you used to own?
Did you sell it to the corporate head?
Sunken so low for the gold.
Another sell out now.
Now I'm out of my head, cause you're out of my head.
Another sell out cause you're out of my head.
And what you despise, is what you become.
Why am I surprised that you're the one?
Cause you're a company man?
How low will go?
To go for the gold?
Two-face Mr. company man.
Slip and slide and compromise.
Sinking into the house of quicksand.
So close your eyes and live a lie.
Cause you're done you're done.
You took the money and run.
You took the money and run.
You took the money now you're out of my head.
What you despise is what you become.
Living the lie you took the money and run.
Cause you're a company man.
And what you despise is what you become.
You took the money and run.
You took the money now you're out of my head.
And what you despise is what you become.
Living the lie you took the money and run.
And what you despise is what you become
What you despise is what you become.
10. Rat City (2:26)
Rat city.
You can't out-bleed me you'll never out-bleed me.
Rat city.
Win by numbers survival by cunning.
Rat city.
Keep your friends near your enemies closer.
Rat city.
I've come to make my way.
Try to grow the family.
In a parallel realm.
That's here but unseen.
I might penetrate your grain.
Might be in your labs of pain.
Forever together.
We are one until we're done.
11. Time of Trials (3:42)
Visualize the demise of a self inflicted prison.
History doesn't have to win.
Just because the words been written.
Reverse the curse of endless thirst.
Chapter to verse the stake is driven.
Saturated memory the recognition worn.
Been a steep and winding path.
From another epoch born.
Reverse the curse of endless thirst.
Chapter to verse the stake is driven.
To derail the time machine.
And to let the future speak.
In a time of trials.
Dystopia may thrive.
Let delusion slowly melt away.
Fall away.
What new light brings this unraveling.
