Seeming Salvation Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Chastity (1:34)
I'm burning with flames of waste and wrath
Knowing that tomorrow's infertility is our path
I see you fall from sieves of hate
Which excretes from the dreams we create
Embowered by shields of impermeable chastity
Our brains are ripped and replaced with vanity
Infinity seems to be closing in
Not much more left as we're sensing the last s
2. Seeming Salvation (3:42)
I'm but a pawn in the master's game
I put my faith into values insane
One small part of the mass so grey
To fanaticism I've fallen grey

Don't scrutinize the seemingly absurd
To falsehood I abide
Don't question the implication of words
From an empty mind
I spit at the scum of your rotten world
Me you cannot blame
I deify the flesh and blood
Because others do the same

Taste the sweetness of sinless life
And the deeds we put in effect
We seek to efface occurings like
Deviation and defect
Let us lead your way through life
Avoid all that's impure
Your own existence is the sacrifice
A price you can endure

Don't scrutinize the seemingly absurd
To falsehood I abide
Don't question the implication of words
From an empty mind
I spit at the scum of your rotten world
Me you cannot blame
I deify the flesh and blood
Because others do the same

Slowly slipping inside my shell
Perceiving I had only one soul to sell
Groping for an immortal well
Just to find another hell
3. Prey to Dismay (5:37)
The ritual has been made
A grave of history
In which we all are laid
Buried

As the casket's lid was sealed
The present went insane
The truth was now revealed;
Discovered

As they walked
Into the hall
No one could see me
Nor hear my call

Their minds were locked
With darkened chains
Their bodies were embalmed
Bile was floating in their veins

Dirt covers dirt
Soul kills soul
Pain meets pain
End close at hand

Tragic is the missing innocence
Sad is the truth of life
The fading light won't make sense
They stare at their own demise
To laugh is their craving lust
Laugh as their hate arises
Forced by the thought they must
In the hall live by their lies

The dark takes the day
There's death in my way
My mind has to pay
I'm prey to dismay

The gates were opened
Light reflected
The hues of blue
Made my sight infected

Like thousands of others
My soul was deflected
I tried to reach out
But my cries was neglected

Dirt covers dirt
Soul kills soul
Pain meets pain
End close at hand

Demented spirits came and went
The core began to shake
The mindless had to pay their rent
Enslavement

They started to walk at noon
By their hands their way was
crushed
A flash of light came soon
The hall
4. Engraving The Epitaph (4:24)
Seal your fate
In the crypts of life you'll see
Bridle your lust
At the utter edge you'll be

Elation and pain will cease
From your senses you will hide
At the final step you'll freeze
Your deepest fear inside
To divulge what is beyond
The symbol of your quest
With rightness your are fond
You'll never find your rest

Seal your fate
In the crypts of life you'll see
Bridle your lust
At the utter edge you'll be

The pounding roar of time
The scream is from the past
You seek a perfect chime
To reach your goal at last

Kaleidoscope reflections
Swirling clouds of youth
Lying in defections
Now see the truth

Future starts to blacken
The past no longer is
All that you can reckon;
Here,now and this

Your blood starts to flow
Lies heavy on your brain
the wisdom is too low
Is this in vain

"Redemption from prejudice"
Is what you never thought
"Moral, grace and justice"
The different you have fought
Your goal is too obscure
To fight whats imperfect
To define your hoflow core
To find what is defect

And the answer you now stand
The final view of life
Eternal wisdom at your hand
Your weary eyes you raise
As the truth comes through your soul
Your body starts to convulse
Realize that all is foul
Blood spews with your pulse
5. The Twisted Grace (4:11)
Through the veils of darkness
Into eternal sleep
Beyond life's extinction

Surrounded by dying
Smell the rotten flesh
Visions from within

Floating through an endless maze
In search of resurrection
Afraid to face death's twisted grace
Which ends in eternal affliction

Lonely soul blind to life
Grasp of death holds you tight
Your own blood stains your lies
The twisted grace of death

Feeling darkness from within
Trapped in pain endlessly
Living was your own sin
The twisted grace of death

You try to escape from this ghastly
dream
With fear embedded inside
In creeping frustration you finally
scream
And wake up as you've died

Lonely soul blind to life
Grasp of death holds you tight
Your own blood stains your lies
The twisted grace of death

Feeling darkness from within
Trapped in pain endlessly
Living was your own sin
The twisted grace of death

Trapped between body and mind
Feel the past rot behind
No one to hear your last cry
Deep inside the darkness you will dry

Past the veils of darkness
Beyond eternal sleep
Into reincarnation

Surrounded by laughter
Fell the joy inside
As you reach the end
Eternal peace of mind
6. Self-Inflicted (5:00)
Rage of the unborn
Glowing in the morn
Devourment is complete
Suffering the last defeat
Hatred now evoked
By blood just soaked
Generations' work in vain
Ruined by the masters' gain

Tormented souls in a black abyss
Facing the naked truth
Regarding the honesty that forever will miss
It's raping the years of youth
Fragments of a world in excess used
Darkness surrounding us all
Gaze at the doom of life that we choose
We laugh as we fall

Epitaph engraved
In the bare flesh
Sickness is saved
For the posterity

Material vanity
Above other values
Forsaken humanity
With ruptured sinews

I see you crawl in dirt
On your once beloved earth
My fascination of your work
Is honest and deriding
I'm watching you bleed
For your lust and your greed
i behold your desperation
Self-inflicted devastation

Tormented souls in a black abyss
Facing the naked truth
Regarding the honesty that forever will miss
It's raping the years of youth
Fragments of a world in excess used
Darkness surrounding us all
Gaze at the doom of life that we choose
We laugh as we fall

Who are you to seal our fate
And undo the years to come
Nothing remains but a glowing hate
On the planet that once was our home

Who are you to shatter the hope
For our coming generations
What we see is the end of the rope
As we start the search for salvation

Worship is a lie
To win you must defy
Your spine is stained with evil

The goodness of your heart is feeble
When death comes from behind
Hysteria takes your mind
I behold your desperation
Self-inflicted devastation
7. Purgation From Within (3:52)
Fading through the dark skies
Depression overloads me
Listening to the pure lies
Desultory facing thee

The mind that yields in agony
Will entomb its fear inside
A passage for the lonely
Abomination burning wide
Ambraced by cold despair
The scorn that will destinate
Forsaken by thy care
Is forever to be my fate

Shattered by a scream
Defeated in my dream
Failed by severance
Distinctive ignorance
A task that is complete
Infected by deceit
Diminished all my spite
And so my will to fight

Obsessed by conceptions of pain
Our nexus has been my fall
The feeling has been slain
I hear thy mighty call
Obscenity wants to grip my throat
And chain me with demise
I know i will take my oath
I'm burning for this price

Enchanted deathly way
Rise up and you will pay
Mistrust is my resource
Reflected by its course
Departing from the truth
I never will get loose
Prowling in the night
Obscurity is my sight
8. Disorientation (3:34)
Far beyond the walls of fear
Dwell your hidden lies
Disorientation is breathing near
To find a soul that cries

Face yourself
In trembling fear
Arrival of death
Is drawing near

Neutral;dead is your mind
Is this the death you awaited
Thoughts make a painful grind
To your brain...dictated

Take the dagger
Use it now
A fast cut
And blood will flow

Desperation covers you
The light you can't find
The voice that speaks is maybe true
But for that fact you are blind

Someone is entering your inner soul
Someone with good intentions
But the feelings is very cold
And your mind flows with tension

As you sink into your soul
Your corpse will drift away
What is left? A brainless ghoul?
Racing towards its grave

Face yourself
In trembling fear
Arrival of death
Is drawing near

End of life drastically reached
But why couldn't it end?
A voice in your heart has suddenly
preached
Perhaps some light will be sent

You took the dagger
You've used it now
A fast cut
But death didn't show

The solution is total lie
You have been betrayed
No one hears your hollow cry
The last breath is made
Holding the dagger with a nervous grin
You push it inside your heart
Blood spew from inside within
And your life is torn apart
9. Seeking Life (4:29)
Imprisoned by society
To addle in this cell
Enchanted by their cruelty
Here I'm destined to dwell
Benediction seems so grey
Engulfed by flames of hate
Dreaming makes me fly away
But still I'm doomed to carry this fate

Innocent soul to die
Glory of life; a lie
Desperate is my cry
My moaning they now deny

Trapped insane
Left alone
Chilling pain
Goes through my bones

Existence is the only crime
Punished for my "sin"
Freedom's just a distant chime
Opinions drowned within
Infliction of my sanity
But my life they can't deform
Seeking life's obscurity
While my mind is transformed

Innocent soul to die
Glory of life; a lie
Desperate is my cry
My moaning they now deny

Trapped insane
Left alone
Chilling Pain
Goes through my bones

Inside a black field of death
No way in,no way out
Penetrate their promises
And discover eternal suffering
10. Of Violet Fire (3:03)
I am a being
Of violet fire
I am the purity
God desires

A touch of the holy spirit
An invitation to your mind
God's eternal presence you feel
As you leave your body behind

All your sense
Of frustration
Is sent forth
With isolation

You try to hide
From the human desire
You are a child
Of violet fire
