In the Arms of God Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Stonebreaker (5:16)
Scorned... by your petrified eyes
Reborn... with unjustified lies
With no apologies shown the demonologiest known
I think we're dying too fast
But when fury recedes only angels believed
It couldn't last, it couldn't last
It won't last, it can't last

Trial, no denial, guilty by the hand of the power hungry man
I'm unholy again, just ask the stonebreakers
Trial, no denial, guilty by the hand of the power hungry man
I'm unholy again, just ask the stonebreakers, yeah

On high with the wicked on the mountain
On high with the wicked on the mountain

Torn... by the need to violate
Morn... the pure congregate
There’s no need to commit, just burn the heritic
There’s nothing gained once again
It was lies all along, a disguised siren’s song
What a sin, what a sin, what a sin!

Thieves disbelieve guilty by the hand of the power hungry man
You’re unholy again, just ask for stonebreakers
Thieves disbelieve guilty by the hand of the power hungry man
You’re unholy again, just ask for stonebreakers, yeah, alright

I’m on high, I’m on high, I’m on high
Just like the wicked on the mountain

Torn by the need to violate
Morning as the pure congregate
I’m on high, I’m on fire
I’m on holy just like the wicked on the mountain
2. Paranoid Opioid (6:30)
Life shuts you down, life shuts you down
Suffocate inside when overkill surrounds
Pain kills the time, pain kills the time
Depression bends the rule and now you're losing your mind

Close your eyes, another sunrise over and over!
Burn by the spoon and now you're dying too soon!

Paranoid opioid! Paranoid opioid!

Got you living in hell, got you living in hell
Delusional truth got you under a spell
Death is on your back, death is on your back
And you can’t survive when nihlism attacks

Close your eyes, another sunrise over and over!
Burn by the spoon and now you're dying too soon!

Paranoid opioid! Paranoid opioid!

Sun breaks through useless shade
Fall in love with an endless haze
Hard to find peace of mind
Burn by the spoon now you’re dying to soon
...Have you seen my mother?

If the blood that your pumping is heartless
And you can’t seem to make up your mind
And your soul is now shrouded in darkness
Just like your dying for the very first time

Just remember what reality taught you
And it wasn’t always just for the thrill
You bow down to the one that lost you
And now the devil’s going in for the kill

Now you’re six feet down, now your six feet down
Suicidal black and unholy ground
Guess we’ll never learn, guess we’ll never learn
Too slow to live too fast to burn

Close your eyes, another sunrise over and over!
Burn by the spoon and now you're dying too soon!

Paranoid opioid! Paranoid opioid!
3. It Is That Way (5:17)
Distant wings bring you down like a soldier
Alive inside but your soul getting colder
And there’s nothing left, nowhere to hide
Nothing left - it's genocide

You’re gonna find out

It is that way because it is
It is that way because it is
It is that way because it is
Over now... and I’m going down

Big old wall going fall like reliegion
As you die inside while you pray for redemption
And there’s nothing left, nowhere to hide
Nothing left - it's genocide

You’re gonna find out

It is that way because it is
It is that way because it is
It is that way because it is
Over now... and I’m going down

Nothing left, nowhere to hide
Nothing left - it's genocide

You're gonna find out

It is that way because it is
It is that way because it is
It is that way because it is
Over now... and I’m going down

So what do you want me to be?
I’m the same old beast you hate to see
Just like the heavens when the light recedes
I’m forever black without a need
And there’s nothing left and nothing more
'Cause you lost the battle and the war
So what are you standing here for?!
4. Dirty Hands Empty Pockets / Already Gone (4:51)
DIRTY HANDS EMPTY POCKETS

There‘s a righteous fool among the weak
Where a fallen man is bitter sweet
And with his soul he deficates
Into this world he filled with hate
All your lies have turned to logic
And you got nothing in your pocket
-- Who? You!

The truth is hard to find
When you got survival on your mind
If you promise not to tell
I’ll bring your son back home from Hell
And keep you floatin on your feet
So you feel alive, but your really asleep
-- Who? You!

You observed it from the start
Now you’re a million miles apart
As we bleed another nation
So you can watch you favorite station
Now you eyes pop out your sockets
Dirty hands and empty pockets
-- Who? You!


ALREADY GONE

Homemade deception now a source of pride
You can take all you want, old lady
'Cause God knows I’ve tried
Truth be known it was never shown
Run like hell it comes as no surprise
One day you will see what it feels like to be free
Remember me when you’re safe at home
I’m already gone! Yes, sir!

The man said we’re gonna do it alone
We’re gonna give it to him til they bleed
Gonna laid it on ’em til they’re gone
Then give them everything they need!

Truth be shown, future stays unknown
Give ‘em hell every single time
One day you will see when you’re six feet down like me
Rremember me when you’re safe at home
Yes sir! I’m already gone!

Get on, get on, get on, get up!
Get on, get on, get on, get up!
Get on, get on, get on, get up!
Get on, get on, get on, get up!
Get on, gonna lock and load
Gonna give it to ‘em when the’re hazy
Get on, lay your mothers down
Gonna give it to 'em til the’re crazy

Truth be shown, future stays unknown
Give ‘em hell every single time
One day you will see when you’re six feet down like me
Rremember me when you’re safe at home
'Cause I’m already gone! Yes sir!
5. Rise River Rise (5:06)
I remember you seems like yesterday
Do you remember me? I got lost on the way
Wrong muddy road is nothing new
We stand but this river is washing through

River rise from tear drops without warning
Float away while flooding yesterday
I’ll be gone, I won’t be back by morning
So rise river rise, wash this place away
Clean my dirty soul so I can save it for judgement day

This place will bring you down more than you’ll ever know
Turn around: it's do or die; I think it’s time to go
If you feel the same, then you can stay
I’ll fly - I never liked it anyway: sun of the morning star

River rise from tear drops without warning
Float away while flooding yesterday
I’ll be gone, I won’t be here in the morning
So rise river rise, wash this place away
Clean my dirty soul so I can save it for judgement day

-- Ah-a-ah! Ah-a-ah!

River rise from tear drops without warning
Float away while flooding yesterday
I’ll be gone, I won’t be back by morning
So rise river rise, wash this place away
Clean my dirty soul so I can save it for judgement day
6. Never Turns to More (8:15)
Shackled down to wasted days
I think it’s time to break these chainS
Planets align from the inside
The bitter truth still mystifies

Where is this king that wears no crown?
Driftin’ behind because I’m sliding down

Helpless man you can’t ignore
Watch your back ‘cause never turns to more

Just like before, just like before
Just like before, just like before
-- Just like...

Wise fool with devil’s hands
I broke the rules to understand
Words to say from far away
As distant worlds fade to grey

Where is this queen that holds be down?
Drifted away without a sound

Helpless man worse than before
You lost your ways ‘cause never turned to more

Ever more, ever more, ever more, ever more

Never turns to more
Time has slipped and shut the door
Never turns to more
And we lost the days that we thought were ever more

Never more, never more, never more

Out of sight, out of mind
You took me to a different place, different time
I believed in you...
Out of sight, out mind
You took me to a different place every time
I believed in you... but the truth is what I never knew

Navigate through skies of blue
Homeward path long over due
The will to live is an oversight
What you give for just one night

Where is this king that wears no crown?
I’m driftin’ behind and I’m sliding down

Helpless man you can’t ignore
Watch your back ‘cause never turns to more

Just like before, just like before
Just like before, just like before

Never turns to more
Time has slipped and shut the door
Never turns to more
And we lost the days that we thought were ever more
7. Infinite War (3:46)
Deafening sound blackens the sky
Ashes rain down - puritans die

Infinite war! Infinite war! Infinite war!
Overlord bring decibels of revolt

Two minutes and counting; kill to remember
This war is a knife which will never surrender

Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Overlord, bring decibels of revolt

Imperial hubris - unholy oxy moron
Infinite contradiction become the enemy to defeat yourself

Kill switch engaged; enemy sound
Snake bit nation, burns to the ground

Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Overlord, bring decibels of revolt

Infinite repetition never lessens a lie
Unless or until all reason’s eclipsed in denial

Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite war!
| Deafening sound
Infinite...
-- Revolt!!!
8. So Much Left Behind (5:18)
Rising unreveals an angel
My burning heart was overthrown
She came to take away this pain boy
But what I felt was never shown
-- So much left unknown

I found the road but I can’t turn back
Overlooked, out of time
-- So much left behind, oh yeah!

Drifted away reality follow the heart no better
Future dreams will never be, never means forever
And the path is hard to find
When there’s so much left behind
-- So much left unknown

Beauty flows just like a river
Drowns my soul, purifies
Drift away into forgiveness
Now I’m left to wonder why; no tears to cry

Words to you were long overdue
Stormy skies are over head, so much left unsaid

Drifted away reality follow the heat no better
Future dreams will never be, never means forever
And the path is hard to find
When there’s so much left behind, yeah
-- So much left behind


I guess we gotta move on...
Gonna keep on rollin'...
9. The Backslider (6:29)
Some people know the order, but they’re hard to find
Some people roll you over and then they blow your mind
-- Some have the will to occupy
Some people can’t remember, but that’s nothin’ new
Some people kill for lovin’ including me and you

But I guarantee your time is due
I guarantee your time is due

Black fire! Illuminate the chosen few
Liars assassinate what’s come for you

Distant winds spread salvation and beat you down with shame
Once redeemed is gone forever never be unchained
-- The future steals what once remained
Some people speak the truth now: when there’s no one else to blame
Then they try to beat you down boy if you don’t do the same

Choose me or choose eternal flame
Choose me or choose eternal flame

Black fire! Illuminate the chosen few
Liars assassinate what’s come for you

Beware Backslider
You need to know just why we were, 'cause I might be losin’ my mind

Deception of your mind chasing what was once divine
Onward for the truth absurd; I think we finally know just why we were...
-- ...alone... alone...

Nobody knows the answer; they never question why
And blind faith will lead you nowhere- it happens every time
-- Spirit shines and now it’s time to die
Lights dim and you can’t remember, you pray you’re homeward bound
Kill the dream forget the memories that were so profound

The revolution dies with out a sound
The revolution dies with out a sound

Black fire! Illuminate the chosen few
Liars assassinate what’s come for you

Beware Backslider
You need to know, just why we were 'cause soon you’ll be losin’ your mind
10. World on Fire (4:01)
Never bitched, never moaned, never gave the king: the time
Never lied, never cried, never gave the queen: a dime
Still it seemed to me we were losing all the time
But underneath we can breath and were standing on our own
Never known... Never know...

Running while your world’s on fire
Back to rob you blind
Blistered sins consume the liar all the time

Never break, never crack, never turned into a stone
Never crawl, never fall, never bow beneath the throne
Never could believe, because it was never shown
But underneath we can breath and were standing on our own
Never known... Never know...

Now your running while your world’s on fire
Back to rob you blind
Blistered sins consume the liar all the time

A shattered God once made of stone
Took me a side, took me aside and made me whole
I once was blind, but now I see
The blistered walls in front of me!

Never breath, never sang, never call
Never died, never flied, never fall
Never break, never bleed, never rest on our own
We control everlast

Running while your world’s on fire...
Blistered sins consume the liar...
11. Crown of Thorns (2:33)
Time has shown the lines
Crown of thorns divine
Choices are hard to find
Mistakes are few, but they are mine

Earth so far below
Spirits sinking low
Reasons don’t seem so odd
Sleep tight: you’re in the Arms of God
12. In the Arms of God (7:01)
Words make fuel to power of fools to be used
Shadows you cast: the longer it gets the shorter you last
Back to the wall now the one that you serve has abandoned your call
Desire backfires; you become the opposed where you once had aspired

And you fall from the Arms of God!

Sins are ignored; the price you paid has been paid once before
Storm has revealed; clarity brewing now - it’s you that is ruined

Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!

Cast the veil - the splinter has turned to a nail
Light has revealed your soul is beginning to seal
Visions have appeared, delusions of death drawing near
Truth sets you free; all along you were blind, now you see

As you fall from the Arms of God!

Frozen still - you freedom is testing your will
Pain has receded; now you’ve lost you own will to believe! Believe!

Rise! Rise! Rise! Rise!

You’re at war with your God...

These are the things that condition the man
Seldom shown the ways to understand
Heart was still beating but you know it was true
Locked in the cage and shown the wrong view
Standing aone like a lightning rod
Sleep tight my friend: you’re in the Arms of God!!!
