The Eternal Return Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Devolution Of The Flesh (2:46)
This is the end of a sickening tale
Of life death and repeat
Radiant waves of dissonant ways
Set forth through the halls of refrain
You're a plague, you're a plague
And you feed off the youth but it won't keep you young
You're a plague, you're a plague
And your prophets are gone
And you harbor your share of the blame
Put on the same face again with no hope
Another day in this solemnest state
Swallows its tail, destroys and creates
Sinking deep with the weight of the world
Unrelenting and stale
Suffer each day as we've fallen out of hate
And now you've drained every last drop of sincerity
You're a plague, you're a plague
In this mortal world and the next
You're a plague
This is the end of your self absorbed dominion
A new dawn has risen
Solitude and its dull light will guide you
Through living this day again and again and again
Suffer each day as we've fallen out of hate
And now you've drained every last drop of sincerity
You're a plague, you're a plague
And you feed off the youth but it won't keep you young
You're a plague, you're a plague
And I'm sick with disgrace
In an age of decay
You're a plague
2. Death Worship (3:10)
I'm in denial of existence drifting over to the other side/ Of an endless horizon/ Crossed out and driven by desire/ Feeding the fire until/ O death pull me closer to your cold embrace/ With such grace you keep driving the same stake/ Straight through the heart/ And I can't stop from always thinking/ This is not our time and not our place/ A notorious devotion to the blood of the earth/ Rushing back to your head/ Now we all/ Pay our respects to the oncoming fall/ Bow before/ The dead memory of the reoccurred/ O death pull me closer to your cold embrace/ With such grace you keep driving the same stake/ Straight through the/ Heart of us all/ And we are the fall/ So don't reach out your hands/ In this false promised land/ Over and over, over and over/ Again with the promise of an end coming closer/ Fate is disguise/ It's the ultimate lie of life/ Yeah fate is disguise/ It's the ultimate lie
3. The Tides (4:19)
Pull/ Meet me beyond the emptiness/ And only then will you see/ All that you have/ All that you have in this world/ Is all that you need/ So release me into the vast unknown/ For I have been reborn/ Arise in tune with the tides/ You wait for them to fall/ On your balance your life/ And through the serpentines/ You reach into the deep/ And you pull/ Drift and you tow/ With only the moons to guide you/ Will you please/ Release me into the vast unknown/ For I have been reborn/ Arise in tune with the tides/ You wait for them to fall on your balance your life/ And through the serpentines/ You reach into the deep/ And pull and release/ Be it on high and relentless/ Or down in the shallows/ You're senseless/ Release me into the vast unknown/ For I have been reborn/ Arise in tune with the tides/ You wait for them to fall/ On your balance your life/ And through the serpentines/ You reach into the deep/ You pull and release/ You drift and you tow/ You reaped when you knew there was nothing to sow/ So welcome to a hell of existence/ If you think you can predict it/ Well you fool and you fake/ Like its all been arranged/ And you wax and you wane
4. No God (4:47)
There's no salvation in a world where you worship your reflection/ And no redemption for a life of servitude/ You bow and you heed on hallowed command/ Your holy land is all rot and reeking/ It's a safe place/ A hollow escape/ A palace of concrete and glass/ Keep waiting, keep waiting for/ No god to release you/ No god to make you fall to your knees/ There's blood on these pages/ And a war inside your head and with yourself/ Through the ages through every form of hell/ It's a safe place/ A hollow escape/ A palace of concrete and glass/ Keep waiting, keep waiting for/ No god to consume you/ No god to bear your burden/ No god to use you/ No god no it's all an illusion/ A usurper of life/ And it'll bleed every last drop/ And it'll suck all the breath out of you/ And leave you forsaken/ There's no god to release you/ There's no god to make you fall down to your knees/ There's no god to consume you/ There's no god to bear your burdens/ There's no god/ No it's all an illusion
5. Bitter (1:19)
Shame is such a plain way to describe this state/ And every forked tongue displays your intentions/ With every forked tongue a way to ascension but/ All is not well in the world we've created so bitter and jaded/ Again with the same rusted routines we make/ Does every forked tongue seem as unrelenting/ As power as pressure every gluttonous pleasure you seek/ All is not well in this world we've created it's over you've fucking wasted it
6. Blessed Infection (3:25)
Blessed Infection

It sets in with a vengeance
An attack on all the senses
A paralyzing presence

They'll hunt you down
One at a time
They'll hunt you down
one at a time

The closer they get
There's nowhere to run from the ones with no reflection
Hits when you last expect it
Contagious and spreading it's blessed infection

They'll hunt you down
One at a time
They'll hunt you down
One at a time

The closer they get
There's nowhere to run from the ones with no reflection
Hits when you least expect it
Contagious and spreading it's blessed infection

Defiled with malicious intent
A sickness in your head
A sickness with no end

Somewhere someone holds the cure
Holding out on the rest of us
Blessed and infectious

They'll hunt you down
One at a time
They'll hunt you down
One at a time

The closer they get
There's nowhere to run from the ones with no reflection
Hits when you least expect it
Contagious and spreading it's blessed infection
7. Transcendence (4:20)
Transcendence

There is no turning back
From all the confines of regret
Reminders of that day will haunt you
Nights you never slept
And every time you separate the body from the mind
And look into yourself and see what you've left behind

It's something you salvage through and pick the bones
It's something you'll never stop searching for
It's a self made misery
It's a blatant blasphemy

But all we need is a little transcendence to mead us
But all we have is sedation that numbs all our senses

The farther out you make it
Beyond the absolute
Onto another level can't take anything with you

So calm for a split second before you
Reconnect with the storm

It's something you salvage through and pick the bones
It's something you'll never stop searching for
It's a self made misery
It's a blatant blasphemy

But all we need is a little transcendence to mend us
But all we have is sedation that numbs all our senses

It's a self made misery
But you write your own history

I wanna peel back this later
Reveal my new skin to the open air
I feel a cleansing wash over me
And I'm finally able to breathe

All we need is a little transcendence to mend us
But all we have is sedation that numbs all our senses
Transcendence to mend us
8. A Distorted Utopia (2:57)
A Distorted Utopia

It's a hollow hand
That pulls you into
An otherworldly land
So alluring and new
And the higher ground
Where you took your stand
Has now leveled down to the sand

A search for your last destination
You're already there
Where madness and bliss coexist
With the color that is
Filling the air

A distorted utopia sets in
With it brings a new beginning to every end
And it's all you've never had
And it's all you'll never know
You're feigning reality and coming down too slow

An ever changing map
A spiraled path
A picture of the past where
No time has elapsed
On another plane
Where you left yourself out of your body again

A search for your last destination
You're already there
Where madness and bliss coexist
With the color that is
Filling the air

A distorted utopia sets in
With it brings a new beginning to every end
And it's all you've never had
And it's all you'll never know
You're feigning reality and coming down too slow

Out of body out of mind
Entheogenic the divine
The divine

Faced with an endless maze
Never ending race
Follow your reflection blindly through the blackended haze

Unrealistic it's so masochistic
A display of the self
And you're purged as the flood washes over
Leaving you barren and cold
9. Black Sun (3:16)
Black Sun

A black sun has risen
Look up into the sky
Enter your rain season
Drown out the light
A return to the soil
Harvest by hand
Depleted and bleak in
An unfertile land

Is it fate or is it fortune
That blasts our past to oblivion
Can you feel
The weight has shifted
Drought decay have
All been scripted

As I lay beneath
Its piercing rays
Unlearning and burning

Drown all light into the shade of night

A black hole has engulfed us
Pulled apart at the seams
We drift through the void
We struggle to see
Trapped in an infinite
Reversal of life
Shelter yourself in the
Shade of the night

Is it fate or is it fortune
That blasts our past to oblivion
Can you feel
The weight has shifted
Drought decay have
All been scripted

As I lay beneath
Its piercing rays
Unlearning and burning

Swooning doom and rebirth
A vision obscured
Ecliptical and shadowless

Black clouds are looming off
In the distance
Another great victory for
The resistance
Awake to greet the new
Dawn though the mist
The day it all changed and
The black sun eclipsed

Drown all light into the shade of the night

And lying beneath it's rays
All that we have created will be erased
10. Into The Grey (4:34)
Into the Grey

We've got to get out
No turning back
Leave ruination to the rats
We're setting a course
That's out of our reach
Never returning to this
Civilization at it's worst and
It's starting to sink into itself so

Stay away, stay away from the old ways
Starting over
Stay away, stay away from betrayal rediscovered

A dark history of squalor and squander
Like weeds to the endless fires

Elevate yourself to the sun
Burn it black and let the ash rain down
Roaming through the celestial fields
A new seed a new beginning

We're moving to enlightened ground
On an ouroboran whirlwind
We're blowing away and never coming down

Stay away, stay away from the old ways
Starting over
Stay away, stay away from the betrayal rediscovered

We all fade into the grey
It's a place you know better than anyone
The isolation burns
We all fade into the grey
From a seed to a bloom from the grave to the womb
The isolation burns

What world awaits, what world awaits
When this one is dry and desolate
What world awaits, what world awaits
When this one is vacant and drained

And I'll watch it burn

Elevate yourself to the sun
Burn it black and let the ash rain down
Roaming through the celestial fields
A new seed a new beginning

A new day risen from the ashes
Brings our eternal remains
Fade away into the ground and
The end is beginning again
