Apostles of Defiance Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Scream From Within (4:50)
[Music: S.Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Bleeding - the eyes of the dead
Mind led astray in a world filled with blood
Soul fueled by contempt
A feeble heart intertwined - love and hate
A splintered psyche - adrift with illusion
1 hand to the sky with 1 foot in the grave

Scream from within - you seek the purpose
Flushed with heat - ablaze with fury
Consume the soul - no recollection
The night is filled with screams

Sweating - now drenched with confusion
Awakened by light - unfamiliar surroundings
Fleeing - the heart crushed with grief
Eyes on the cross with a thirst for desire
Ill-fated now slipping away
The chalice now blood-soaked - I fight to regain

Scream from within - you seek the purpose
Flushed with heat - ablaze with fury
Consume the soul - no recollection
The night is filled with screams

[Solo - Glen]

Living in human decay
Within these walls - now complete disarray
Will you find? The last saving grace from a total disgrace
Atrocities captured in time
With blood on your hands - ill equipped to deny

Scream from within - you seek the purpose
Flushed with heat - ablaze with fury
Consume the soul - no recollection
The night is filled with screams
2. Volcanic Earth (4:06)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Trapped beneath 1000 storms, volcanic ash is brimming to explode
Buried under walls of ice - dormant lava waits to singe the earth

Detection of seismic refrain's - to forecast the lava flood bane
Unleashing volcanic debris - destruction the world's never seen

Exploding to the velvet sky - magma's force ignites volcanic plight
40,000 feet above - ash plume rises while pyroclactic flows

Screaming and running there is no retreat
Pumice and ash flow 1200 degrees
Erupting below walls of ice to unveil
Ice / lava mixture to floods - no escape!

Buried in erupted waste, volcanic earth now has sealed its fate
Predictions from forgotten times - discarded into now - the world demise!

Detection of seismic refrain's - to forecast the lava flood bane
Unleashing volcanic debris - destruction the world's never seen
3. Twisted Morality (5:10)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

[Theme - Glen]

Tormented mind - a weakened pagan
The tarnished halo - of dripping blood
Through unspeakable acts - 1 final shot at glory
The sickening truth shall never set you free!

Justified through the book of faith
Without remorse - may you burn in fire

Twisted morality
Twisted morality

5 now perished, does this bring you closer to god?
Now how can you be blamed?
The rebel angel - he is the 1 to blame
His forceful tactics - are now my saving grace

Justified through the book of faith
Without remorse - may you burn in fire

Twisted Morality
Twisted morality

[Solo]
[1st section - Andy, Glen]
[2nd section - Glen]

Justified through the book of faith
Without remorse - may you burn in fire

Twisted morality
Twisted morality

1 hand on the book - the other blocking gasping breathe
Beyond sickness - you are the 1 to blame
For this you need - to perish in the lake of fire!
Drawn and quartered - in blood-soaked ashes may you burn!
Twisted morality
Twisted morality
4. Demoralized (4:56)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Breathing - contained in your forsaken pit
Now freezing - from scaling these walls you create
Whipping - the chains on my forsaken back
Spinning your web in this blood-soaked attack
Pummeling forces - now I cant deny you
Electrical current's denying my chance to escape

Unbeatable force to destroy
Demoralization deployed

I enslave you - victimized
I engage you - traumatized
I engulf you - dehumanized
I enrage you - mortified

Retention formed - I suspend in your grip
From your retched disease I attempt my escape
Infrared vision - eyes pierce in the darkness
Escape is illusive - my mind now astray
Wallow in darkness - my screams are unheard
As I scratch to the surface - your chains now en-claw on my neck.........

Unbeatable force to destroy
Demoralization deployed

I enslave you - victimized
I engage you - traumatized
I engulf you - dehumanized
I enrage you - mortified

Choking suspended - now gasping for breath
Grasping the chains for an uncertain death
Eye-blinding light now appears from above
Resisting pain as I focus for ways to escape!
"You shall not ever escape"!
Within these walls contained - I focus to escape
Electric forces felt - avoided from the chains
Ripped into the air - now closer to your vile
Hidden razor punctures - the sickening flesh that holds my last escape!

[Solo - Glen]

Unbeatable force to destroy
Demoralization deployed

I enslave you - victimized
I engage you - traumatized
I engulf you - dehumanized
I enrage you - mortified
5. The Test (5:10)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Checking the engines - all things are in place
Strapped down the countdown's begun
Lift-off in flames - smoke is filling the sky
Arrival to countdown is done
May god be with us - now splitting the sky
Launching our way into space

Many - failed to pass the test
Can't attain - illusive

Expanding horizons - a leap for mankind
Mission is set and in place
Drifting through masses of binary stars
Solar flares beaming with light
Radar detection - incredulous site
The black hole - approaching in space

Many - failed to pass the test
Can't attain - illusive

[Solo]
[1st section - Andy]
[2nd section - Glen]

Mission control has detected - encourage
To alter the plan - it's too late
Sucking our spacecraft in forbidden blackness
Components malfunction - now frayed
Losing all contact with mission control
1000 light years from home

Many failed to pass the test
The black hole - illusive
6. The Will To Remain (7:30)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Triumph over adversity - a struggle to exist
The heart torn to pieces - to loose you must resist
A blank stare gazing - to a far away place
Memories of hope - have faded far away
Eyes now peeled on white-blinding stripe
Gaining speed - harnessing the paved black path

The will to remain - find the strength to carry on
Mobility remains - the only way now to cope

All faith is lost - to blame a god-less world?
Unbearable tragedies - is it too much to take?
Intense thoughts of piercing hate and guilt
What have I done to deserve so much pain?
Sporadic serenity - in mobile transit
Dim skies now fading - collapsing into painless sleep

The will to remain - find the strength to carry on
When all else fails - find the courage to push ahead

To focus on what lies ahead
The only way to the road of recovery

Heading through the storm - of mind and terrain
Shifting gears to seek - the rights of passage and serenity
Accepting the mission - to face alone
To capture a purpose-less grin
Nobody knows my true pain.............

Awakened to find a new sky - encompassed with serenity
The new day brings new hope - I focus on the roads to recovery
Determined to hold my head high - accepting my reality
Time passes by - retaining my strength - though questions unanswered - true
will has remained

The will to remain - I've found the strength to carry on
When all else had failed - I found the courage to push ahead...........
7. Apostles Of Defiance (5:08)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

[Theme - Glen]

Born into fire - embellished into flames
Arise from fury - you are inept to refrain
Your chosen life - a life of death
You will conform - to the apostles realm

Apostles of defiance
In sequence you will burn

Stand before the monarch - in sequence to burn
absorbsion into hatred -for the next sadistic feast
Fondness for the flame - from the depths you seek
Denial nullified - bathe in the blood of serenity

Apostles of defiance
In sequence you will burn

Years of treachery and deceit
Amidst decay - your thirst to seek
The countless lives you've wasted
The defiant 1 - you breathe
Retina zero's in - your lifeline slips away
Apostles gift now clear - eternal hellish world

Apostles of defiance
In sequence we will burn
Apostles of defiance
In sequence you will burn
8. Pull The Trigger (5:01)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Watching - as the rain keeps falling down
Waiting - for the pain to knock me down
Malign indifference - frothing at your peace and glory
The naked truth - fish-hooked in your halo-story

The grand illusion - will you take me to the life you've chosen?
When all else fails - will you follow me to mine??

Subjected to your deity
Now dejected from society
Detained in hypocrisy
As you pull the trigger - and fail!

Doubled over - from the pain you've put me through
Misguided memories - I've suffered onto you
Preach your peace - a world of cold distrust
Inept in solitude - now wince in cold disgust

To keep me locked away - attempt's to no avail
Destruction of my soul - your life I now assail

Subjected to your deity
Now dejected from society
Detained in hypocrisy
As you pull the trigger - and fail!

[Solo - Glen]

Compassionate state - is a grand mistake
I am fixed to you - my rage is blazing
You've captured me - at an-all time low
My heart in apt to release

To keep me locked away - attempt's to no avail
Destruction of my soul - your life I now assail
As lies fizzle away - true sickness revealed
My life will go on - your test has failed

Subjected to your deity
Now dejected from society
Detained in hypocrisy
As you pull the trigger - and fail!
9. Apathy For A Dying World (10:24)
[Music: S. Drover, G. Drover]
[Lyrics: S. Drover]

Closing my eyes from a cynical world left behind
Memories gone without a trace
Emotional burnout - time spinning out of control
Diseases and wars from predictions of past
Taking fruition - how long can this last??
Making my solace - erasing the pain as I fly

I'll equipped to comprehend
Modern day madness - can't fight to defend
My head tilted towards graying skies
Scriptures - now ponder as those passing by
What does this mean? A part of the grand scheme?
I seek the answers - is the message all to clear?
The world is sifting through a gradual demise
The pain it brings to me - I focus through
It helps me to remain

Leaving the pain as I drift so far away
Masking my grief - I now seek a better place

Why do we have this pain?
Why do we need to hate?
What do we have to gain?

I open my eyes - not to find a guilt or remorse
Finding my way - now to face the imminent storm....

Why do we have this pain?
Why do we have to hate?
Why can't we all create?
Unification - to be as one

A beaming light penetrates the blackened sky
Angelic vision - I shudder to believe
You seek the truth - inquisition with no answers
To take my hand - reveals the answers you have never found

You choose to follow - the grand exit with no return
The warm light's invitation - glows upon my face
My hand extended - to rid myself this pain and anguish
Rising above the clouds - I turn to give the world - final embrace

The final embrace

What does this mean? A part of the grand scheme
I seeked the answers - now the message - all too clear
The world is sifting through a gradual demise
My life has come to pass - with apathy I glide towards the sky:
