Leave Scars Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Death of Innocence (3:49)
My imbalanced mind is unaccepted by society
My life is ruled by urges - sickened impropriety
In this day and age, strangely enough, some factions remain blind
To my manipulation of a puerile kind

Their impressionable minds cannot tell wrong from right
A degenerate, I am an immoral blight
Upon the attitudes of "unliberated" souls
I'm sick I know
I'm sick I know!

As a lower form of life with a psychotic rage
That's identified intensified against under-aged
They have no fear yet to share what is theirs
In act of love intended for their older years

I crawl into their brains, they love me more each day
They're old enough to know, I don't care what you say
They're old enough to love, I don't care what you say
Aren't they?
Aren't they?!?!

I beg not forgiveness, just a cure for this sickness
As it stands now, there's no hope in sight
My brain is filled with degradation, tormenting excruciation
Decadence is ruling my life
Bloodless lambs' purity lost, victims of my holocaust
My unclean hands defile without reason
More sinned than sinning, anguished memories just beginning
When thoughts turn upon this bitter season

A rapist of naivet�, a killer of virginity
I stand for the death of innocence!!!
Young bodies cannot stand the pain
I'm torturing their little brains
I am the death of innocence!
Only sickened filth, disgusting scum
Would do the appalling deeds I've done
Crushing with psychotic malevolence!
I can't control my gross addiction
Feeding mental pain infliction
Fall to the death of innocence!

Ostracized by my peers in my formative years
I've grown up craving unconditional love
That's why I've turned to my friends with our illegal, illicit trysts
They'll only understand me if they're young

God, I can't believe I'm scarring their young lives for all time
Not only bodies but their sweet, chaste, virginal minds
I'm more than willing to, if caught, let death be my fine
Someone catch me, I deserve to die!!!

Somebody please stop or kill me!
My actions must be stopped before I strike again
Before, I didn't care what I was doing
But now I know I am an aberration

Demented brain keeping youthful slaves
I'm a man obsessed, committing mentacide
Sending innocence to its grave
Standing at the coffin, set to eulogize

A rapist of naivet�, a killer of virginity
I stand for the death of innocence!!!
They cannot understand the shame
The torture of their little brains
I am the death of innocence!
Only sickened filth, disgusting scum
Would do the appalling deeds I've done
Crushing with psychotic malevolence!
I can't control my gross addiction
Feeding mental pain infliction
Fall to the death of innocence!
2. Never to Rise Again (3:55)
Reality has come to call
A modern-day plague upon us all
As we've come to pass and deal with strife
Afflicted ailments dissipate life
For all false prophets predict time of doom
The demise of man shall come too soon
With each passing of the dying day
The false ones predict and finally say
We are...
Never to rise again
Never to rise again
We are never to rise again
Never to rise again

The time for peace for all is dead
The coming of christ - "I'm here", he said
With each passing monarch depressions' tool
The people submit to the false one's rule
As the world turns now in reverse
Honesty in life shall be dispersed
With each passing of the dying day
The false ones predict and finally say
We are...
Never to rise again
Never to rise again
We are never to rise again
Never to rise again

We look to the sky in a constant wonder
With ideals collide and bring us under
Veils of death life�s' mystery
Profits are claimed but never seen
All that we ask is life to share
Free from hatred, pain, despair
With each passing of the dying day
The false ones predict and finally say
We are...
Never to rise again
Never to rise again
We are never to rise again
Never to rise again
3. No One Answers (7:51)
As you enter your realm of incorruption
The values of morality in their pristine state
The walls that surround you in a gentle caress
Protect you from a world of hate

And the Earth is full of lurid madmen
Misogynists abound waiting to produce your fall
But the being you should most fear when you turn out the lights
Is in no way human at all

A puritan soul, distanced from sin
A libertine's ways never for you
But now you've no choice in this carnival game
A toy to be done with what I choose

As you struggle to break this invisible grip
Your consternation growing into fright
Awake but entranced by a force that's unknown
But very real on this night

No one answers!
To the cries in the middle of your dreams
No one answers!
To the cries rapidly becoming screams
No one answers!
Though you're forced to perform against your will
No one answers!
So shut up and accept your fate!!!

You recoil in revulsion, but that will soon pass
As you rebel to my sensual skill
Non-compliance won't do, you will truly serve me well
Or I'll have no choice but to kill

It's the way that I work, it's the way that I am
I'm selfish, my needs are quite great
Exhibiting my power over the weaker, fairer sex
My leviathan desires to satiate

Aha what is this? you're beginning to relent?
As I have said, none resist my charm
Your confession of faith is far behind you now
And to think at the start you were alarmed!

I am your savior, you await my return
Your libidinous urges long repressed
What I do to you is inhumanly possible
I've now introduced you to your future ways...
4. Cauterization (7:20)
5. Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin cover) (1:48)
[Originally performed by Led Zeppelin]

We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, singing and crying
Valhalla, I'm coming

On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow
How soft your fields so green
Can whisper tales of gore of how we calmed the tides of war
We are your overlords
On we sweep with threshing oar
Our only goal will be the western shore

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins
For peace and the trust can win the day despite all your losing
6. Older Than Time Itself (7:01)
What have we done?!?
The box has been opened - we fall
Three words are unleashed to plague us to the end
Stick around and witness our demise
The human condition, read "you give and I'll take"
It seems older than time itself

We've established what we have here
Avarice, greed and malice rule the mind
The strongest emotions, conquering even fear
No barrier impossible to climb
When a human is given the opportunity to flaunt his greed
He spares no expense at the task
His avidity is dominant, covetousness too prominent
Taking without bothering to ask

Let him burn!!!
His actions are primordial he's never gonna learn
Make him bleed!!!
Reciprocation his just reward
Maturity!!!
Is sorely lacking and in evidence of complete failure
And so it goes!!!
He's a victim of his own greed

This behavior is intrinsic
Patterned after animals who've killed their prey
Inherent line of conduct, placing "want" before "need"
Material objects of desire what you crave
There's no woman alive whose goal is merely to survive
Her generation screams to "have it all"
Her wanton lust of finer things, this attitude it only brings
Down her breed and casts a pall

Let her burn!!!
Her actions are primordial she's never gonna learn
Make her bleed!!!
Reciprocation her just reward
Maturity!!!
Is sorely lacking and in evidence of complete failure
And so it goes!!!
She's a victim of her own greed

Can't you see it's never-ending?
Humanity's rapaciousness is firm
"The competitive edge" is now a mass psychosis
A dementia with which we must come to term
An instinctive trait of action is this crippling malefaction
The multitudes with their malignity
Maliciousness a facet of existence as we know it
Mankind its own atrocity

Let them burn!!!
Their actions are primordial they're never gonna learn
Make them bleed!!!
Reciprocation their just reward
Maturity!!!
Is sorely lacking and in evidence of complete failure
And so it goes!!!
They are victims of their own greed

"Give it to me"
An open palm receiving at each opportunity
"Give it to me"
Take advantange of each others' generosity
"Give it to me"
A selfishness mutation turns to mordacity
"Give it to me"
What will it take to put a stop to all this gluttony?

"Take everything from me"
The other side gives acquiescence to proclivity
"Take it from me"
Closing their eyes to the plague with incredulity
"Take everything from me"
Though burdened with the pain of your insensitivity
"Take it from me"
The earth is doomed to self-destruct from the voracity!!!

You want, you need
With your enormous greed
Insatiable, your hunger will not cease
The gain you seek
The havoc that you wreak
Avarice, your self-control is weak
Self-indulgence is the key
The pathetic life you lead
All-consuming adolescent fantasy
You'd better grow up fast
'Cause this life will never last
And you'll be the last one to see!!!

Christ, I wish I had the answer!
I must admit, I'm only human, too
I'm surely not above looking out for myself
It's an attitude I know I must improve
When a human is given the opportunity to flaunt his greed
He spares no expense at the task
His avidity is dominant, covetousness too prominent
Taking without bothering to ask

Let us burn!!!
Our actions are primordial we're never gonna learn
Make us bleed!!!
Reciprocation our just reward
Maturity!!!
Is sorely lacking and in evidence of complete failure
And so it goes!!!
We are victims of our own greed

What have we done?
The box has been opened - we fall
Three words are unleashed to plague us to the end
Stick around and witness our demise
This world we inhabit, all our attitudes are fake
We're only here to preserve our own wealth
The human condition, read "you give and I'll take"
It seems older than time itself!!!
7. Worms (2:17)
8. The Promise of Agony (8:27)
You tell me what will become of us?
Are the lines so drawn and the stage so set
That as we age what remains is burdened sufferance?
My mortality looms in its visage is doom
And it's speaking to me alone
The years will unfold but what is the use?
In solitude I'm left to atone

The sins of my past are returning to gnaw at my core
The scars I have left and those that have been left on me
My purpose in life, is it unfair to assume I have one?
I'm not fooling myself, what now awaits is a nightmarish end

What I'm saying, do you understand?
Do you know what it's like to feel inadequate?
And the future ahead has no place for you
As if you ever thought it did...
Alone in my shell, if I come out I'll die
I don't want to escape though I should.
No, just leave me alone, I don't want your help!!!
Yeah, if you could ease my pain you would... (right!)

No, you don't even know me!
And your words of comfort fall upon deaf and frightened ears
I lament my bitter fate, lachrymation upon examining my fears
I've built a fortress around my soul, impregnable the door
I refuse to admit you to my netherworld
You're correct, I've absolved my self-control
This spiraled course depression has me on

Agony!
I'm a study in despair, domineered by the promise of agony!
And the happiness is bound, and the hopelessness is found
I'm in agony!!!
Can't you understand, despondency commands my agony!
and I'm waiting to die alone...

As I'm drowning in a sea of abused visions and shattered dreams
A chilling descent into a phobic hell
Insanity's blade performs it's correctional surgery
Impending doom in this blackened room, I can give this all away
It's all so easy to capitulate, Nothing is making me stay...

Retreating within and hiding behind my wall
Dealing without, there's no escape from this moribund state
Awaiting deep sleep, we don't care if I don't wake
In darkness' hands though terrified, I feel safe

I don't fit into the scheme of things!
These years as an outcast are quickly wearing thin
My carefree days are a thing of the past
And I welcome the fact that I'm coming to an end
Melancholy, my bride, I devote unto thee
My, breath, my mind and my soul
As silence washes over me, I've never been so tired, so cold...

Confusion seizes unto me
Manacled and beaten, chained up by it's frozen vice
This is killing me, but my mind is set, and I'm too weak to fight.
Have you any idea what it's like to want to die?
Then you will know from where I speak
This winter in my soul
This winter in my soul...

Agony!
I'm a study in despair, domineered by the promise of agony!
And the happiness is bound, and the hopelessness is found.
I'm in agony!!!
Can't you understand, despondency commands my agony!
and I want to be left alone...

Yet again, I have no answers
The confusion of my fate takes it's toll
Symbolically speaking, what's another life
That lists "ending itself" as its one and only goal?
I've examined my options and I see nothing in my sight
Is there an avenue I've yet to explore?
As of now, I'm decided I have nothing to live for...

Defeated, alone, yet you laugh at the state I'm in!
I can't help what I am, but you think this is all in my head
I'm not asking for help, but I want you to understand
That I'm going away, you guess if I'm coming back

You wish I had a will to live?
This condition I'm in didn't happen overnight
I've hated myself for an eternity
Now I finally feel that I'm doing something right
As darkness descends I behold the Candlemass
I seek intimacy with death
Again, you're correct, these feelings will pass
When my memory is all you have left

My life has metamorphosed
Into a marriage of the twisted and macabre
I'm sitting here now feeling the effects of my words
Trying to see a reason why I should go on
I have to wonder, do I still believe in God?
'Cause God no longer believes in me
I lay myself down for my final peace
I welcome Death, my spirit is free...

Agony!
I'm a study in despair, domineered by the promise of agony!
And the happiness is bound, and the hopelessness is found
I'm in agony!!
Can't you understand, despondency commands my agony!
and I'm pleading to die alone...
9. Leave Scars (7:40)
I am an angel of darkness
Abhorrent to those who are frail
The strength inside me is my will to believe
In myself, with no self-betrayal
My force is my own preservation
My destiny mine to control
I don't live my life to be judged by anyone
Surviving intact is my role

Lost time is never found again
Screaming through my life of speed - insanity, mach ten
I utilize the life I've been given
Or else it's as if I've never been

I take pains to make my presence known
If it's a negative impression then I'll take the blame alone
I have no regrets and I call my life my own
I have no time for the words left in stone

I acknowledge only one thing
My own authority
Answering to no one
I leave no trace of pity
My independence rules my life
I can't help what you are
For this I won't apologize
Because I leave scars!!!
I promise you agony
If you attempt to intervene
Just pay attention to yourself
You're barely existing
I'm thriving on the life I lead
A veteran of human wars
For this I won't apologize...
Because I leave scars!!!

I practice angelic darkness
My convictions keep wolves from my door
I know what it means to have someone tamper with my dreams
Deflowering my essence, my core
I once sought no recrimination
But now I seek the price be paid
Forever wary, always guarded against anyone
Who's mistaken me for easy prey

Defeatist attitudes are only in vain
As you wonder of my species - must I really be explained?
Realize now that I'm ingrained
Knowingly, forever on your brain

Nemeses falter in their plebian ways
Employing methods to usurp my reign, my inner maze
Seeking clues to uncover the clever turn of phrase
Salient words are found amidst the haze

I acknowledge only one thing
My own authority
Answering to no one
Leave no trace of pity
My independence rules my life
I can't help what you are
For this I won't apologize
Because I leave scars!!!
I promise you agony
If you attempt to intervene
Just pay attention to yourself
You're barely existing
I'm thriving on the life I lead
A veteran of human wars
For this I won't apologize
Because I leave scars!!!

A mercenary I may be, I tend to feel I'm not
My only need is to maintain my lot
I have a lust for life that stands to be my legacy
I'm proud to say, "with my life, I am free"

To leave a mark, necessity, my memory redeemed
I suffer not from lack of self-esteem
Someday my confidence will be a mass contagion
I assure you this is no self-exaltation

I cicatrize myself upon your mind
You won't forget my actions as you will find

I'm lord and master
Of my own future!!!

I am the darkest of angels!!!
Indomitable in my will to succeed
I have a goal to ascertain
Entrenching myself upon your brain
These words I've bled upon this page
Have come from inside, how quickly I've aged
My innocence has died and was buried long ago
Eternally joined with a part of my soul

The weak of heart need not apply
I admit they're not for all - my caffeinated ways of life
Those who oppose me will end in bitter strife
Defacing human minds until I die

Those with open minds will benefit from my vows
A self-betrothal where I pay no heed to sacred cows
Further discussion time will not allow
Until we meet I'll take my bow

And remember...

I acknowledge only one thing
My own authority
Answering to no one
Leave no trace of pity
My independence rules my life
I can't help what you are
For this I won't apologize
Because I leave scars!!!
I promise you agony
If you attempt to intervene
Just pay attention to yourself
You're barely existing
I'm thriving on the life I lead
A veteran of human wars
For this I won't apologize...
Because I leave scars!!!
